    Default Faconnable 1994 - Is it bottleworthy ? Blind or Sampled ...

    Does anyone still use this forgotten frag ?
    Have you tried some in the past ?
    My old habits have returned !
    I have purchased a few blindly since November last year .
    Reviews are mixed about this one , as they are for the others from this house .
    Does anyone use any other ones from this company ?

    I have tried it in the past and I enjoyed it quite a lot, safe buy. It was fresh and clean cut, but also very potent if I remember well. It goes alonge the lines of Versace L Homme but sweeter and more powdery or soapy.

    Haven't used it in a while, but a safe buy IMO.

    it's very potent, invigorating, herbal, clean scent with a overdose of eucalyptus and mint over grassy base. i found it pretty strong for my taste when i first sampled it; but then, those accords have made a strong impact and i cannot see why i wouldnt like to have it in my wardrobe. splendid scent to beat summer. i'd say go for it. .

    Great scent can smell like a dryer sheet at times but very long lasting.

    I still like this. It is similar to Fuel for Life, only not as cloying. Great fragrance, bottle worthy, IMO.

    man, this is the 3rd time this month that a post has come up about a fragrance I'm considering purchasing. Lol..I guess great minds think alike. Well Dimitri, I have a sample that I just received a week ago and I can assure you that all the reviews are correct. Its long lasting, elegantly fresh (not an immature freshness which is so common in perfumery today), and a pretty safe blind buy. I'm actually purchasing it myself soon. Hope you enjoy it!

    I am thinking of getting this one, I spotted a bottle at Marshall's pretty cheap.

    I love mint, eucalyptus and aromatics...it sounds like the top notes of this are similar to Nicolai Pour Homme. Are they?
