I'd try sampling something that if you do like ....it's not going to haunt or break you if you buy it.
On a more serious note, X is my favorite from Clive Christian. But I don't like it enough to pay those prices; if I did, I suppose I would.
There's a smaller size for $300-something.
But if you like X, check out CDG White as well as Chergui. They're not the same, but could be less-expensive substitutes if necessary...
Has everyone checked out my Top 100 Blog??
Oscar Wilde said, "I have the simplest of tastes. I am only satisfied with the best." In all seriousness, I don't think all great scents come expensively, just as great food is not always found in premium restaurants.
The nose (or palate) should be the test. One of my fav houses is Parfum d'Empire. I reach for their Cuir Ottoman and Ambre Russe all the time.
"No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this." Desert Rose by Sting and Cheb Mami, Album 1999.
I tested C while in Chicago.....this is haunting me also!!!
Get the travel size. You get small quantities of all 3 scents for 300.
