    Having said that, I did pick up a bottle of X. I love Geza Schoen's compositions, and X is unlike anything else I own.

    (Thankfully, X does not say that on the bottle.)
    X for Men is lovely. What else has Geza Schoen done, and what would you recommend trying?

    I would never be able to afford CC prices, but thankfully I got a decant in a swap.

    Well, yes, but you have to keep in mind that the Clive Christian is a business, and the company is in business to make money, and if they can make this unintentionally funny tactic work for them - well, congratulations. The idea that the fragrances might be any good is sort of an afterthought, in the presence of that glaringly obnoxious marketing ploy. In that regard, it's a bit of a treat to find that they're actually pretty good. I'd spring for a bottle or two, if money were less of an object to me. At present. . . er, not quite worth $900 a bottle on my budget. . .

    Essentric Molecules?
    Tom Ford Splits!!!! - Tobacco Vanille, Tuscan Leather, Oud Wood, Noir de Noir - PATCHOULI ABSOLU
    Plum Japonais, Italian Cypress, Neroli Portofino, Costa Azzura, Azure Lime, Champacca Absolute

    HARD TO FIND - Lavender Palm, Arabian Wood, and AMBER ABSOLUTE, etc...


    Most of the time I am very proud of the Basenotes community. Time after time I have witnessed the thoughtfulness, empathy & genuine friendship that members of this community extend to others - oldtimers & newcomers alike. There are other times, however, when egos get the upper hand and civility goes out the window. My philosophy is that I won't say anything here that I would not say if you were standing in front of me. Welcome to Basenotes, each and every one of us. ~ TwoRoads

    I might try that out. I see it sells at Nordstrom, NM, Saks in stores or online for all 3. Really how exclusive is it?

    GS is responsible for Escentric Molecules, including the new Kinski scent that is one of my all-time favorites. He also did gs01 and gs02, the latter of which I think is excellent. I wear gs02 much more often than X.

    Apparently he is also responsible for some Ormonde Jayne scents, but I am entirely unfamiliar with their line.
