    From the thread title, I was all set to come and berate the OP Good thing he's just messing with us.

    I think it's a great fragrance, sure enough, but there's something about it that keeps me from thinking it's a masterpiece.
    I think it's the sweet chocolatey-musk drydown that does it, but hey, there's not much else out out there that does the same thing (let alone nearly as well) and its longevity and effect on the fairer sex can't be faulted, so maybe it does deserve its reputation.

    Easily an 8.5/10 fragrance for me, and I'm a hard marker.

    definitely above average, borderline 1 of the greats, I'm sure it's not the best in that house

    I am so happy I have this one. Brilliant. In my mind one of the best there is. Certainly at this price point. Can get cloying on me though...which is not always a bad thing if you learn how to wear the scent and when. Do not over spray! This one grows without a doubt on me. I LOVE stronger scents but more than two sprays chokes me out. One spray and I love it and so do people around me. Complemets galore with one spray usually under my shirt and one on my wrist dabbed to the other. Best $70 bottle I ever bought.

    Seemed to thick and cloying on me.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    They did a good job creating a scent that appeals to people with a specific olfactory sensibility.

    Good juice for sure, but "one of the best"?

    Never tried it. I'm quite sure it's "really good" but I doubt it's the best.

    Mature, lovely scent. Great juice for sure.

    I have yet to smell Pardon to compare these two, I've heard Nasomatto's is an improved version of LIDGE.

    Indeed.
    Best not to believe the hype on this one or you may end up just a little disappointed.

    Haven't tried it, though I'd be willing to. I used to have a bias against sweet scents, but that changed a bit when I embraced 1 Million.
    And I found out yesterday that I sort of like YSL LaNuit. So I guess we can all evolve in our tastes.

    I think it satisfies a particular taste/mood that unfortunately I rarely ever attain. Once in a blue moon at best.

    Update: Just went and looked at the reviews for LIDGE.
    57 positive... 4 neutral.... 2 negative

    That's impressive. You don't get much higher ratio of good to bad than that. Maybe there is something to this juice.

    I like lidge a lot but am starting to agree with this. It's hard to wear on many occasions as it is indeed thick and cloying with anything beyond 1 spray lately. Still love the scent.

    I have a swap going for LIDGE right now. It's a blind swap for me, because I've never smelled it.

    I figured with all of the hype, it must be something great. Does it compare in any way to A*Men? I'm not big on gourmand scents and I didn't like A*Men.

    On of the better and less generic gourmands available, especially in today's fragrance market.

    I didn't like it after testing it on my skin numerous times. Then, I fell in love with it after finally giving it a full wearing to work two winter seasons ago.

    Just sniffed the one out for the first time a few days ago and i must say this is by far my favorite cocoa-gourmand scent. Nothing compares to me, not even DHI

    This. I think it is a quality fragrance with quality ingredients and see why its popular but my skin takes scents like this and makes them very "perfumey" or feminine. As I said I think much of that is my skin, not how I perceive the fragrance. I get beautiful whiffs mixed in with an old school women's perfume unfortunately.

    I like it a lot, but somehow I don't feel compelled to buy a full bottle.
