    Default LUBIN - Anyone tried the four recent releases?

    Does anyone own or have any experience with these relatively new four scents from Lubin that you would like to share? I had a look around but couldn't find much in the way of comments or reviews nearby.

    Here are their names with a few lines I grabbed from the Lubin website (nice site BTW).

    FIGARO - An aromatic, green, woody chypre.

    The heart of this fragrance is a counterpoint of vetiver and fig brightened by notes of apple, clover and plum.

    INEDITE – A fresh but sweet, spicy ‘floriental’.

    Aziyade’s Sugared Almonds. Indedite ('unpublished') is a sweet and spicy creation, rose water adorned with a floral harmony of heliotrope, lilac and rose and topped with nectarines.

    BLUFF – A fresh and invigorating spicy vetiver.

    The conquest of the west. Citrus, wood extracts and spices.

    ITASCA – A green aromatic, woody chypre.

    The scent of North American forest. Citrus, juniper berries, oriental woods, vetiver and Minnesotan pine.

    I own Idole and L'Eau Neuve and would really like any opinions on these new ones you can offer.

    Many thanks.

    I tried all four a while back. I was most impressed with Bluff, if I remember correctly. I would need to go back to my samples of all four to refresh my memory.

    I own both Idole and L'Eau Neuve as well.

    A previous thread, with some opinions:

    The only review I have seen online has been at The Scented Salamander, for Bluff:

    Thanks Furriner - I had a feeling there was a thread around here somewhere but I couldn't find it.

    The Scented Salamander review is really something! Interesting about the early history of this house and the cola thing - what a great read.

    I remember being exited about Itasca.
    Interested to hear if anyone has smelled it, what it compares to...
