    Default Comme des Garçons Luxe Patchouli is a dead ringer for Sables.

    Tried it yesterday in Paris. Yes, the quality is high, but at 200 Euros for a 45ml bottle and a drydown that is basically a clone of Annick Goutal's Sables, I'll give it pass.

    That sucks. Is it as sweet as Sables? Or is just the drydown similar?

    I was banking on the Patchouli, since champaca flower is not my favorite note and the other in the series is Champaca.

    It begins as a Patchouli bomb and then, all of a sudden, it's all immortelle flower. The dry down is actually better than Sables in that it's less maple syrup - but it is too close to distinguish itself.
    The Champaca Luxe is pure Champaca - too femme pour moi!

    Sounds like Eau Noire by Dior.
