    Default has anyone tried Humiecki & Graef Skarb?

    the Perfumed Court describes it thusly:

    Humiecki & Graef Skarb

    Humiecki & Graef wanted a perfume created that captured "how men cry" - eruptive and sensual. How men deal with melancholia and happiness were further inspiration.

    The scent is not constructed in the traditional pyramid, but star-shaped. The center is to reflect shed tears. The other points of the star represent other pieces of the idea: purification, a deep slavic soul, childhood memories, as well as the soft and animalistic feeling of naked skin.

    The notes are absinth, myrtle, lovage, barley extract, musk, carrot seeds, incense, myrrh, patchouli, orris, chamomille, prune. An original scent for men or women.

    I'll wait to see if there are any of you good folk who have tried this brew.

    Thanks

    I thought it was pretty good (Just got a sample from LS)
    It is similar to (MB) Mark Birley....or at least that's what I'm reminded of without testing side by side...The price is what makes me hesitant....I like it a little bit better than MB.

    It didn't do much for me -- pass!

    Its not even worth a 1/4 of the price they are asking for it.

    Haven't tried it, no, but its name sounds distinctly Klingon cum Nordic or something:

    Totally agree with rjrober22's assesment. I did not like it. But I did not like MB to begin with.

    Love the name
    Love the bottle
    Love the marketing shtick

    But...I don't remember liking Mark Birley when I tested it a while ago. I'll have to sample it.

    Men crying BS. Star shaped BS. Smells like Mark Birley BS

    I got a sample and expected nothing from what I've read so far. Was I surprised when I sprayed it on and liked it from first whiff. This stuff is "Pure Class in a Bottle"
    A modern "Gentlemen's Scent". Fresh without smelling like detergent or "Bounce"
    Just a hint of sweetness to keep you sniffing yourself through the entire day, which this one is capable of lasting. A subtle sillage to be confident in the office. This one's a sleeper. Get a sample and wear it for day and the appreciation for its splendor goes way up.There is a smell of money and it's called "Skarb." $210 a bottle. A bit pricey, but class costs money, and how classy do you want to smell?
