    Default Help me break down a few scents on my radar

    I have a bit of money to spend, and I have a few scents I've been thinking about.
    Some of which I've tried out and im on the fence.
    More opinions would be helpful.

    Bel Ami Vetiver - Tested. Pretty nice, lasts quite a while, a dusty leather with vetiver.
    Mancera Aoud Cafe - Tested. Someone took a hammer to coffee beans. Is this worth $150? Are there any close substitutes? I have TM ToF and its a creamy, woody cappuccino, this is a raw coffee, which I also like.
    Mancera Lemon Line - Zero information or reviews, but it intrigues me.
    Dior Homme Cologne 2013 - Would likely be a blind buy. People seem split on whether its worth it or not.

    My buying habits have really slowed down since the new year, im focusing on a few quality purchases and selling off the ones I do not thoroughly enjoy.

    Thanks for the help!

    I own bottles of all of the ones you are considering with the exception being my Dior Homme Cologne is not 2013. Lemon Line is especially very nice. Refreshing and tart.

    I haven't seen Bel Ami Vetiver before, but it sounds really interesting. Is it sweet or floral at all?
