    Default Invasion Barbare & Lumiere Noire Pour Homme

    Just received decants of both of these a few minutes ago and cannot wait to try these, so excited! I did a quick spray of IB on paper and honestly i'm having a hard time explaining what i'm smelling here, but whatever it is...its VERY GOOD! I'm getting fresh/spicey notes..

    I will be testing both of these out and hopefully find a gem that must purchase

    I know, I know..after that one spray i thought of how much that spray just costed me lol I will be testing these two out a lot and hope that i finally found something that gives me that "must have" feeling, which these days does not happen often at all, if ever.

    Ok, so for those who own IB, can you tell me what a good number of sprays would be for this one? I plan on giving it my first full wearing tomorrow for work. I did sample it today on my forearm and it does not appear to really be a projection beats and sat a bit closwer to the skin, but had great longevity, easily 8-10+hrs from the small spray i applied. Thanks

    I think you should apply IB moderately. It is not a projection monster and that's part of its nature. It's a discreet and sophisticated composition that works perfectly if not overapplyed. If you want something more "consistent" you should better move to another type of fougere and save some money...

    Thanks for the post. I've read how the projection/longevity on thsi one are actually really good and people will notice you, so discreet is not what i was expecting but then again that is not a bad thing either. I guess i will find out today, i will go 4 sprays from my decant and see how that works.

    I had good longevity but projection was moderate...

    Well so far i can say that this stuff is good! Such a smooth and well blended scent, i get a bit of freshness with it, but nice blend of spices. I am loving it so far. I am suprised that i have not heard much mention of this being some what similiar to Reflection Man. I get a very similiar vibe, defintely not as sweet but there is some common grounds between the two.

    IB's longevity is epic -- easily 24 hours on skin

    Yes, so far i'm almost 7 hours in and i can still get good whiffs of it, projection is moderate, but really the projection is really ideal for work environment, its just a nice scent bubble close to the body. I can tell IB will last easily 10+ hrs but close to skin. I really like it and now its just a matter of testing the other ones people mention that are very close and a quarter of the price.
