    Default Pleas help ... which of these 2 almond/vanilla

    Please help me decide which one. *I've decided to add an almond/vanilla scent to my wardrobe and have sampled both of these and love them both! *However, I can't afford both right now *[smiley=sad.gif] so I'll leave it up to my "go to" board!

    But these are sooo different...

    Datura Noir is rich and dark and sweet with a floral edge (spicy lily), and not all that dissimilar from, cough-cough, Dior Hypnotic Poison....though as snobbish as it sounds, I much prefer Lutens less in-your-face version!

    Etro Heliotrope is almond cookies and vanilla extract with powdery heliotrope....and can be bought for a fraction of the cost (try perfumebay.com). The Etro dries light but stays the day whereas the Lutens remains slightly more intense anddries down as rich and warm as it begins.

    My favorite almond scent? CASTELBAJAC! Can be found for a rather low price these days and is a wonderful fresh, light almond scent!
