Funny you should ask...I just got Parfum de Nicolai Le Temps d'Une Fete (which is green and gorgeous with hyacinth) and Sofresh here asked me if I had tried A Scent yet, as he found them quite similar. I have not had a chance to sniff it, but I trust his opinion and look forward to trying A Scent this week to compare.
Guessing the Le Temps d'Une Fete is a more beautifully composed perfume given the quality of scents from PdN. I am in love with this perfume
Issey Miyake A Scent: lemon verbena, fresh notes, galbanum, hyacinth, jasmine, cedarwood, crystal moss
PdN Le Temps d'Une Fete: galbanum, mastic, opoponax, narcissus, hyacinth, daffodil, styrax, oakmoss, sandalwood
Not saving you any money with PdN.....
