    scentimus,

    I haven't tried it, but I know it was created by Dominique Ropion. That's enough to commend it. Do you know where it's available?

    Here is a more comprehensive list of notes from www.parfyym.pri.ee: velvety pear, lemon, green leaves, fresh grass, violet
    leaves, rose, marigold, lavender, cedar, amber, musk

    I'm also interested in getting comments on it, but can't find any reviews on the net. The scent is not even listed in BN directory. I think my regular source has the tester (and also the pour Femme EDP). It's a tad more expensive (~ $45).

    I did order a bottle to try - it must be good because all the 3.4oz bottles are sold out.

    Yes I have tried it! But, on the card

    From what I can remember, it's a light, bright oriental scent, which smells modern and full of confidence.

    I have seen it being sold for about $60-65 on ebay. I'll wait till the price has decreased.

    I wish I tested in on my skin. That day I already had 2-3 scents on both arms. I saw a bottle of Charriol Pour Homme too late.

    This was a huge let down for me! It smells like a bad knock off of Lacoste Style in Play - not very long lasting with no sillage.

    Bottle is the nice part of this fragrance - thats all!

    Purchased it at Charriol in Geneve recently and I love everything about it.

    A fougere with no lavender? The notes sound like a real nasty clash, at least in terms of what I like, but of course it's hard to tell because there can be very small amounts of some notes.

    The pyramid mention lavender, indeed!
    I own this one and find it wonderful. This is a very original take on fougère, with a slight fruity twist. Just as Lacoste did with Lacost Elegance. I don't mean both are alike or even close. I just want to underline the fact that their share the same originality and oriental vibe. Charriol is brighter and it's fougère dimension is perhaps more... obvious, to my nose.

    I got a tester cheaply a a sale. This is a fruity fragrance, where the fruit is that abstract "can't really say which exact fruit it is" kind of way. Reminds me of a coss between cK Escape for men and XS Black pour homme. Not exactly my favourite cologne.
