    Default L'eau de Cartier Vs Bergamotto Marino

    Dear Friends,
    Manage to resample Eau de Cartier, after many years and realize i am so much in love with it!
    I was looking to replace my aging out of phase - Giorgio Armani Eau Pour Homme with Aramis
    Devin as a Signature Scent - i am not so sure anymore! - I Just can't stop thinking about this Cartier.
    Especially a Cartier, which most folks would pass - i find this to be such an elegant Eau leaning
    only very slightly towards the masculine gender, but timeless.

    I feel i can live with it for a long time the problem is, Bergamotto Marino (which is also an eau)
    by Gianfranco Ferre - gets such high reviews! it seems to be cheaper, and has exciting notes.

    If just the cartier, has a little more pepper or bergamot i wouldn't be writing this now!
    Would have greatly have pulled the trigger!

    What are your experiences, and which 1 would you pick for long term use?

    Sorry i did not mean to be gender biased - the post should have been titled at
    Eau de Cartier vs Bergamotto Marino.

    I own Bergamotto Marino because it has a much more "it" factor for me than Eau De Cartier. And I really enjoy Cartier as a house, I own Roadster Sport, Declaration, and Santos.

    I wore Bergamotto Marino today. The bergamont with a touch of white floral on the top along with a sort of aquatic feel is just amazing and it has excellent longevity. I have been sampling Le Labo Bergamonte 22 which is several times more expensive and I find them quite similiar in all respects. Definitely a good bang for the buck! Someone has a 6.7 oz up on the sale board for like $30!

    For long term use I would absolutely have to have both.

    Advice taken - 200 ml of both! - going to stack them side by side like the Twin Towers.
