    Default Tried some new samples today

    I sampled these today:

    1. Penhaligon Castile
    2. Jubilation XXV
    3. Egoiste
    4. Coromandel
    5. Millesime Imperiale
    6. Frapin 1270
    7. Eau de Baux


    I have tested Egoiste and Millesime Imperial before. I have to say, EDB and 1270 are my favorites. I also really like Jubilation XXV, MI, and Castile. Coromandel is good, but not bottle worthy for me. This was my second sample of Egoiste and it just doesn't do anything for me. It's definitely not a bad scent, just not for me. Here's how I would rank them, from best to worst:


    1. 1270
    2. Eau de Baux
    3. Castile
    4. Millesime Imperiale
    5. Jubilation XXV
    6. Coromandel
    7. Egoiste



    For me, Jubilation XXV is not full-bottle worthy, but I would definitely look into a split. I HAVE to have 1270, EDB, and Castile. Anyways, these are just my opinions on these.



    On a side note, does Penahligon's Castile resemble Mugler Cologne and Original Vetiver to anyone else? It certainly does for me, although I like Castile better than those two.

    I would really like to sample the Jubilation. I've heard good things. Anything left of the samples? Ill send you a couple bucks to send them my way. Or I can just get them myself.

    Frapin 1270 is nice, but not bottle worthy for me. Some people say it's a niche version of Pure Malt.

    If you like Castile then you should check out Acqua Di Parma. Castile is nothing like OV or the Mugler though they are good frags.

    Hednic, are you not a fan of Castile?

    Eau de Bavx is very unique. Incensy, sweet, smoky.

    I was just thinking about sampling Frapin 1270, it sounds amazing!

    Jubilation XXV is something that you are going to have to sample multiple times in order to properly appreciate it. When I first tried it I wasn't too thrilled. After a few samplings I had to go and get a bottle. Albeit it is not a daily wear fragrance this will definitely impress on special occasions. This is one of my favorites of all time and a bottle that I cannot be without in my collection.
    My current top ten:
    1. Spice and Wood
    2. Aplle Brandy
    3. Tonka Imperiale
    4. Pure Malt
    5. Bois d'Argent
    6. Noir de Noir
    7. 5 o'clock au Gingembre
    8. Dior Homme Intense
    9. Epic Man
    10.Tobacco Vanille
