    Default Anyone tried Black XS L'Exces?

    Self explanatory title. Is it any good? Similar to the original?

    Yes. Better than the original. Replace the strawberry vibe with a pineapple one and you got Exces (yes i know it doesnt have pineapple in composition). Longevity and projection is good, same as the original. However i dont understand the price difference between Black XS and Exces: the later is about 30% more expensive in my country (being an EDT intense doesnt really justify it).

    Yeah I noticed that its called Intense in the bottom of the bottle.
    I find them equally in terms of strenght.
    The smell i prefer the Excess, pineapple instead of strawberry.

    To me this is a sweet juicy pineapple (like a canned sliced pineapple), not a smoky one like in Aventus.

    It smells almost identical to Black XS. Save some money and buy Tous in Heaven which also has a pineapple note, smellls similar to Black XS, smells better than both, and has a bottle with a magnetic top and can self right itself. Tous in Heaven 3.4 $20 online, Black XS 3.4 $40 online, Black XS Exces 1.7 $55, 3.4 $65 online.

    Tous in Heaven:

    Paprika, mandarin orange, pineapple

    Cardamom,violet leaf

    Patchouli

    L'Exces:

    Lemon, lavender

    Cypriol oil

    Patchouli, amber

    I find it works fine in warm days.

    I've never smelled Tous in Heaven, but will try now based on silentrich's recommendation.
