Well i ended up going with the parfum version. As i mentioned i didn't have much time to really test it out as far as how the scent develops, but just from the opening it smelt much richer and darker than the edt. I based my decision on the fact that if i';m going to buy this frag from a department store i might as well get the Parfum, since i'm sure i can easily come across the edt in the sales forum or online discounter. I couldn't see myself paying 100 for the 3.3 edt when i know i can get it much cheaper. Could i have gotten the parfum cheaper online.
I really excited to put this to use and see what all the excitement is about when it comes to parfum, its been a good 2 hours on my skin so far and still pretty bold and strong but i'm not noticing much projection from it but it was just a small spray to the top of my hand. Thanks for everyones help in this thread, very much appreciated.
Fyi...bought it at Saks for 105.00
