Count me in as an Eau des Baux fan. Some similarities to Tonka Imperiale, though, like timaru, I find TI to be a bit sweeter and leaning a little towards the feminine side of unisex. Eau des Baux is a little more broody and heavy. I like both equally.
Great price point on Eau des Baux.
We're all in the same game; just different levels. Dealing with the same hell; just different devils.
Maybe more now than before. I'm not a person that calls reformulation on most thing, but EdB has definitely changed, and to my nose for the worse. It used to be greener, and borderline sweet. Now it has went way past that border. Unusably sweet for me
eh, unless I'm missing something, I wouldn't really compare these two... I find the EdB has a sort of raspy dryness in the opening, and the T.I. has a cherry liquor accord, so those two aspects don't compare at all.
I don't know what formulation I have - it's a sample I got in a swap awhile back. I'm not saying it's a dead-ringer for Tonka Imperiale, but there's a strong tonka presence in my Eau des Baux, and that, mixed with a coniferous element, draws a lot of parallels to TI with its rosemary and tonka. I get a noticeable dose of IES in the drydown of EdB though, and it definitely is thinner and more masculine than TI.
I just think that fans of one would probably be fans of the other.
