    My message is that blind buying a Mona is ridiculous.
    My taste? I thought I'd love them - but I hated most (apart from Cuir), I find her base repulsive.

    Blind buying them can be a costly mistake at those prices. Also no matter how much the frags are hyped you may not like them. But I admire your gambling spirit.lol

    For me its her:

    Vetiver
    Vanilla
    Oud

    I wouldn't blind buy any Mona di Orio. Fragrances like hers as idiosyncratic as they are should be tried first.

    Don't blind buy them. They are very much love or hate. I generally buy blind due to living in a place where niche fragrances are non-existent. However, I took a trip to London to sample these as there was no way that I was going to drop £350 on Oud without sampling it.
    That said, my favourites (I own the first two) are:
    Oud
    Vanille
    Ambre

    My favorites :

    Vanille
    Musc
    Vetyver
    Oud
    Tuberose

    In fact all except Cuir !

    The Oud is too expensive to blind buy.

    Tried them all, I only own Vanille. A field of fresh green vanilla that won't rot your teeth.
