    Default Wazamba - Fille en Aiguilles

    I have read many articles about the similarity of these two fragrances.
    Do you believe that they are similar perfumes? How are they different, what do you prefer?

    You should thank Grant for creating basenotes. Your professor must be giving you high grades ey? What chapter is this in your book? When you finish, I'd like to buy one. =)

    How about you? What do you believe in? Do you believe everything you read?

    Edit: Now seriously, Sailim, why don't you get decants or samples of these frags so you can see (smell) for yourself? Or you'd rather ask here because you trust basenotes so much? Awww, that's so nice of you.

    In a few days I will make a trip. I have come to try some perfumes, including Fille en Aiguilles.
    Reading, I met many supporters wazamba, compared to FeA. Since I will not have the appropriate time to try perfumes (need a preparation,i think), I ask a help.
    Certainly the personal test is best, but the statistical expertise and opinions help enough.

    For me, the best way of learning is by smelling them myself. If I were you, while on your trip, I would smell everything I can. We would love to hear about your trip. Let us know what captured your nose. =) Happy sniffing.

    Edit: Oh I get it!!! You're trying to win somebody's heart? Unfortunately the opposite party apparently knows more about frags, hence basenotes is here to the rescue?!?!? **Just teasing....

    Fille en Aiguilles is by far the superior fragrance in every aspect.

    They aren't similar, and the Lutens is a much better fragrance.

    I don't find them very much alike at all, and I much prefer FeA. Wazamba is too sweet and fruity for me.

    FeA is a great fragance in my opinion, sadly it's a kind of fragance misunderstood in my city...

    Fille en Aiguilles is a slightly superior as a scent, but Wazamba kills it with superior lasting power. I own Wazamba and enjoy it every time I wear it. Whats the point of Fille en Aiguilles being superior if it only lasts 15 minutes. Not worth the money IMO.
