    Default X-Ray Profumo fragrances - Your thoughts?

    $185 for a 50ml bottle, exclusively at Barneys. Anybody check these out yet? I bought Morphine but realized how much the bottle (minus the cap), juice color and fragrance all resemble the much cheaper Shiseido's Zen for Men. Agree? What are your thoughts on the others?

    There was a brief discussion some time ago:

    I remember testing them but don't remember much of how they smelled.

    Sampled all three scents at Barney's today. Morphine was my favorite, but not enough to invest $185 per 50ml in. Sort of a cross between Chergui and Angel. Delirium and Resurrection (sp?) weren't bad, but not terribly striking frangrances IMHO to justify their price points.

    Sampled Morphine also at Barneys - didn't care much for it.
