    Boudoir is supposed to be very naughty although it didn't like me wearing it at all...Eau de Armpit to my nostrils. ???

    ??? Is there a men's Boudoir, I wonder? Does it come in the same bottle as the women's version, but with a different cap? Does it say men's or women's, or something like that, on the bottle? Also . . . is it true that Bandit has been . . . 'modernized?' ???

    Thank you for all your replies. Tabac Blond extrait is way over my budget right now, but something that's been on my wishlist for ages.

    The chypre part is what worries me with Bandit and the reason I don't really like Cabochard (or Bel Ami), but I'm leaning towards buying it anyway. I'm thinking of ordering it from Strawberrynet, so I just need to figure out what other two scents to get so I get my 5% extra discount. Hmm.

    ;D That particular "saving method" sounds familiar...

    Good luck for your order!

    I tried Bandit EDP today based on this little discussion. Only on a card, mind, as I am scent-free at the mo. It's great - lots of dense leather, a streak of incense and a creamy floral heart - narcissus?

    Highly recommended. It didn't strike me as particularly over-feminine, I think a guy could get away with it. Imagine Jules with narcissus.

    Bandit was my very first 'blind buy', recently.
    I have to say, after reading some of the polarised comments on various sites (like makeup alley) I was disappointed to find nothing very 'radical' about it. In fact to my nose it is sort of bland. (I got the Eau de P) and much more floral than leather. I have put it to the back of my cupboard, meanwhile, because maybe it will be a "grower" and when I am in a different frame of mind I might get to appreciate it. I also am straining to detect the carnation note in the floral, but i can't really.. (that was another thing that sold me on the 'idea' of Bandit). I have to say I much prefer Cabochard, so far. And even though I hated Cabochard at first, and grew to love it, at least it provoked an extreme reaction in me to begin with. i expected Bandit to do the same...alas.

    If Bandit works well with your body chemistry it'll smell great (naughty notes and all!) If it doesn't, fuhgeddaboudit! Imo, if you can wear civet, castoreum and smoke-y notes well, Bandit will work for you.

    Thumbs up Re: I need something naughty. Bandit?

    I was feeling alot like you and took the plunge and bought it. the EDP. The experience was great, I could actually smell something wonderful seeping thru the box before I even openend it. it was pure and sheer boldness and sexyness, together. I feel confident, beautiful and many many other great things when I wear this one. a little goes a long and mysterious way. you are sure to love it. trust me. Ray.
