Sounds like a heck of a drive!
I've always wanted to experiment with Hove scents but being pricier than BF, I've only tried BF scents. Not all are spicy, some of the florals are lovely, but the BF formulations are very strong. I have bottles of Mon Idee, my favorite carnation and Olive Blossom. Both of these EDTs are very long lasting.
Am thinking of trying their Vetivert which I hear is very green.
I look forward to your reviews! Have fun!
