    I have to agree with you. I'll also add that this one is very sexy and the ladies love it. I love niche like everyone else but sometimes a little mainstream is ok especially when it's done right! The quality of the notes are top notch and the fragrance is well blended.

    Hello Poivre Samarcande.

    We meet again!




    L'homme Infini is actually one of the BEST pepper-centric scents around IMO. Far better, richer, and more complex than JCE's skeletal Poivre Samarcande, but "Hello again Poivre Samarcande!" was the first thought that came to my head as soon as it hit my skin.

    Interesting moltening, as I mentioned the [B]Hermessence/B] possible similarity above in my previous post.

    Would you say this is overloaded with Iso-e-super?

    I don't think it has much ISO-E-Super, as opposed to French Lover. Infact L'Homme Infini come of as fairly natural smelling to me.

    Vasnier also did the pepper prominent Bang by Marc Jacobs. Anyone smell any similarities to the two (considering IMO, Hermessence Poivre Samrcande (namechecked above) and Bang are similar)?
    I got my sample today and the first thing that came to mind after trying it was Marc Jacob's Bang. I think they have a lot in common and smell similar.

    I find it much more natural smelling than Poivre Samarcande, but I'd guess there should be some ISO E Super in it. I don't get much of an "Aura of ISO E Super" around me that I get when wearing Poivre Samarcande.

    I am wearing my sample right now and it comes off as a Terre d'Hermès clone to my nose... As I love Terre, I do also like Infini... But while I like it, I don't love it and kind of feel it does not improve on Terre, in fact I prefer Terre... I also can see where folks are coming from with the Poivre Samarcande comparisons as well, for what it's worth.

    The amber in the base of this one is quite noticeable under the peppery cedar and vetiver, and I find it a bit out of place even though it does distinguish it from the scent(s) it is inspired by... Finally Infini has very little projection (the jury is still out on longevity as I have not worn it long enough yet)... Kind of a "me too" release at a higher price point, but at least they picked a great scent to clone and did a competent job, IMO.

    I thought this was supposed to smell like oak?

    It is supposed to have an oak note - among others. And I think it does. It is subtle but I actually think this is its this fragrances secret weapon that prevents it from smelling too generic.
