    The longevity on each of these is rather generous on my skin. I have tried all three as dab-ons, and in doing so had them last 6(ish) hours (possibly a bit longer for the Ambre).

    Dimi Im as keen as mustard to hear your throughts on all 3 fragrances , would you say they were all equally suitable for all ?

    Hi Pour_Monsieur,
    I did end up writing an expanded overview of these here. I feel the three are lovely, and indeed unisex. Perhaps "Musc" leans toward the feminine aspect a little more than the others, but not entirely.

    I definitely need to sample these, and the rest of the line as well. Have only tried Carnation so far, but I enjoy that one very much and really like the dense, ornate style she seems to work in.

    OK my samples just arrived and yes they are very nice , very well crafted fragrances but seem a bit thin and light to my taste . Of course these are quick first impressions and definatly warrant further wears

    Musc .... no musc , just a lovely light bright floral , definatly feminine

    Cuir ... dense smokey leather .... think Amouage Tribute " lite "

    Ambre ... screetchy astringent top , light on the amber soft sweet powder

    I sampled all three and Musc won hands down. I'm anosmic to many musks, but thankfully this one comes through loud and clear and clean, love it! Purchased decant for the moment though fb will not be far away. Longevity is superb, especially if a bit gets on some clothing.
