    I like your tastes petruccijc, what's your take on it. I see it's got a gazilla notes...

    Agree it's fantastic and well worth the asking price.

    I picked up a lot of incense and oud from it - which I like a lot. But I didn't find it to be something spectacular, and certainly not worth the ridiculous price of $375 for 50ml.

    I tried it today and was favorably impressed. But would not pay $375 for it.

    I'm so glad I found this thread. I smelled C earlier in the summer and couldn't place what it reminded me of. I wore Tom Ford Tuscan Leather yesterday, and then coincidentally, I tried my "C" sample today, and realized it is almost a dead ringer for Tuscan Leather (I haven't smelled Aoud Leather yet).

    Tuscan Leather, in my opinion, is richer, "lower" pitched, weightier (in a good way), and the berry note is more intense. There is this small molecule of something sharp and slightly sour in the middle of C that gives it a slightly higher pitch but the similarities are really undeniable. Though for as similar as they are, I like Tuscan Leather a lot more. Tuscan Leather also remains richer, denser, and more compact from start to finish, where C begins to dissipate pretty quickly.

    Funny you picked up this thread today nthny. I was in Nieman last night and the Clive rep attacked me with a bottle of C.
    Insisted on spraying some on arm. She totally denied giving me the sample spritz that started this thread back in June.

    It smells nice, but there is way too much going on there for my simple nose. All those notes....

    I guess I can see the similarity between C and Tuscan Leather.

    Is it good sillage and longevity on these frags?

    I found it pretty fair, yes. And I will say, they DO smell like they are expensive.

    As to worth it or not, depends how much you like it.

    "C" is very opulent. "X" is very sexy. Number One smells like male perfume.

    I gotta say I am quite partial to Clive Christian. So far everything I have smelt ,smells fabulous ! Including the new C . ( Don't like the orangey bottle but that's a minor issue ) I particularly love X - both the men's and women's. I love the bottles too. Price wise- not so much but I still want X for women !
