Genie Jeanie, I loved your descriptions! Pleasures intense is indeed crunchy, vivacious, and extremely loud. It's my hubby's absolute favorite and you had to see the face when I told him on good authority (PerfumedLady's) that there are aldehydes in there.
But I think it's interesting that both you and cacio thought of Aldehyde 44 as rather uninteresting. My hubby, PerfumedLady, and I are very much enchanted with Aldehyde 44, if only the price wasn't so prohibitive. I think Aldehyde 44 is possessed by pale ghostly soul that is capable of haunting us forever.
