    Default Invasion Barbare and Chypre Palatin question

    Hey everyone, so I was wondering. I am ordering the sample set today from MDCI (they were nice enough to explain everything to me, and seem like nice people), and I am getting 24mL of Invasion Barbare, 24mL of Chypre Palatin, and 12 mL of Amber Topkapi, and I was wondering how good the first two would be for school, and what your thoughts on the fragrances are.

    So yeah, how good would they be for college, and what are your thoughts on them in general? How about longevity and projection?

    I love Invasion Barbare, as it's on my very short "want" list. Can't speak to the other two.

    I've had good luck in the longevity/projection department with IB. To me, it seems more like a special occassion scent, or even a night out. In fairness, that might be due to the steep price disuading me from looking at it as an everyday scent.
    WANTED (full or partial bottles)
    Divine eau Divine (refillable)

    I have Chypre Palatin and wear it for office. Good longevity and projection.

    They have one that is in English, but I believe I'm ordering from Paris. The price is fixed with shipping and VAT, so that's all nice and included.

    Fine for college and wonderful fragrances IMO with good longevity.

    Don't like them. Just tried CP and was very disappointed. After a short time it becomes a powdery, sweet, cloying mess. Wish I was around a shower so I could wash it off. Gross. IB is better but nothing special IMO.

    I guess they are not for everyone. I assume I wouldn't have a problem selling them if need be.

    Both are very nice, but perhaps a little formal smelling for school.
