    Cool, thanks!

    Man, La Myrrhe is so hard to put my finger on. I can't tell if it's nauseating or if I love it. It's really fragile in that if conditions aren't right it'll give me a bit of a headache/nausea, but it's a really nice blend of spices and Myrrh,

    It's very Christmasy though, don't you find? Great for a not too cold, and snowy winter day.

    I tried La Myrrhe a few months ago and felt very much the same way. However, the drydown is very similar to Bois d'Argent so I probably won't bother testing it again.

    I smelled on the paper strips The Mythical Fragrances of Givenchy when I was in London

    Le De and Vetyver were the best

    Le De reminded me Une Fleur de Cassie. Le De and Une Fleur de Cassie smell like "choked" florals.

    I "liked" 2 Man, but I don't think I see the groundbreaking things that he sees.

    I really like La Myrrhe, but I find it very summery. I guess I associate aldehydes with warmer weather.

    I have not smelled La Myrrhe (it's just one of those Serge's that I've never gotten around to...you know how it is) or Le De - however I think CdG2Man is amazing and it blew me away the first time I smelled it. I seem to think this is a much more 'smoke' prominent scent than a franckincense prominent one, but then again it's been a while since I've smelled it. I think if it didn't remind me so much of Idole, I would probably own it by now.
