    Default frapin speakeasy review

    tried this last night..1 spray to r forearm........from the opening this scent is "in your face" very boozy and floral and overwhelming(headache inducing for me)...as it dried down over the next hour or two i noticed more of the tobacco note(maybe a dry light well rounded tobacco, this is not smoky to me)..i did not care for this fragrance and i currently placed this sample along with 10 others in a coworkers mailbox..i cant picture wearing this.....i CAN however picture a speakeasy from the 20's in my mind when smelling this....i was never into the bar scene and dont really care for tobacco notes so i am kind of bias.
    14 sprays of DRAKKAR NOIR should do it

    I have a sample of it coming in this week from luckyscent. I want to see how it stacks up to 1270 and 1698

    I think it's my favorite from the Frapin line, but barely not bottle worthy. I tend to like almost all the Frapins, but don't love any of them.
    Current Top Five:

    1. Creed Green Irish Tweed
    2. Tom Ford Neroli Portofino
    3. Hermes Concentre d'Orange Verte
    4. Bond No. 9 New Haarlem
    5. Creed Original Vetiver

    Tried a sample, loved it. Purchased the bottle, love it. Going out to bars and gigs in this has become vital.

    I've been on the fence about this one for a while. I like the opening and mid, but there's something in the base that I'm still not 100% about yet. It could go either way from subsequent wearings though.
