I tried this yesterday.. once single small spray to my wrist at noon, and it was still going strong at 9pm. I like it much better than the 1872 (which is a more complex Royal Water to me). To me, it gets some dirty notes long into the drydown that I feel indifferent about, but the first few hours are great.
I like CCX very much. A complex, well-made and long-lasting fragrance. In fact, of all the world's ridiculously overpriced perfumes, this one is my favorite. But it's so ridiculously overpriced I'm pretty sure I'll never buy it.
I like it even though it is overpriced. On the the plus side its very high quality. It starts out with the most intense, natural cardamom i have ever smelled in a fragrance and then dries down to the smoothest cedar scent out there.
do the bottles still say "most expensive fragrance in the world" or whatever on them. that really made me not want to buy it when it came out....
I bought a Clive Christian traveller set for women and on it, it's splashed all over...'World's most expensive perfume'...I mean on the box....the bottles are too small ....10ml each and don't have this mentioned on them...

Reason: misspelled 'Christian'
If my memory is right, X was the one that smelled highly of cardamom and cinnamon. In fact, it smelled precisely like Yogi (brand) Tea, Classic India Spice. If I had a grant, I would conduct a scientific experiment using an extract of the tea mixed with alcohol compared to the Clive Christian X. Wonder if folks could tell the difference.
X's longevity was poor on me and did not get any WOW's from women.
Like Creed's Windsor, I will give it more tries, but I predict it won't be purchased, even if it were $75.
