    I currently have the Parfum de Toilette and EdT. The Edt is kinda ho-hum to me. The Pdt is much better (richer and darker) but the parfum is my favorite. I went through a tiny bottle of the parfum in no time. It's has a vague kinship to Kouros, but much more wearable.

    I'm just getting into fems and this one intrigues me. I love animalic accords. How aldehydic do you guys find it? Powdery?

    Cool - I'm glad you liked it! Sorry it was such a miserly sample - I don't have very much of the parfum.

    Not aldehydic at all, I think. Huge animalic oriental. I don't find it powdery at all, but that can mean different things to different people. I've heard people describe things as powdery that I just don't get at all.

    Powdery for me is benzoin usually. It all depends on just how sweet that oriental base is.
