Yes Dennis, one of my favorites is not the favorite. You can get a larger bottle from First-In-Fragrance, the 3.4oz. You are the first one to mention it's similarity to the original Pierre Cardin! I agree with you totally. It is certainly more refined, more complex and of higher quality than the PC but it certainly is a 1st cousin. Did you get the dissonant quick blast of the synthetic castoreum when you first sprayed it?! Great stuff.
The original PC was the first fragrance I wore in high school and I still like it very much but the New York just takes it to another level.
Have you tried any other PdN scents? I also love Pour Homme and Baladin and her Cologne Sologne is and amazing take on the traditional EdC with more complexity and more neroli, plus it lasts very well.
Do keep it quiet, we don't want all of this precious juice to get in the wrong hands.... [smiley=wink.gif]
