    If you love it, then it's worth every penny. Buying it at much lower price points tells more about the buyer than it does the fragrance.

    I love this stuff.
    If I have the money for it, I will buy the refill without the bust.
    I don't get much similarities with Rive Gauche. IB is fresher and more vibrant.
    Somehow, I can imagine this to be a huge compliment getter.

    10/10 for me. The best of anything always has a high price tag although I would add that in most/all purchases mid-level options often offer the best value for money in terms of giving you enough of what you would like from a purchase (as in best compromise).

    I just sampled this today and honestly the first thing I'm reminded of is Rive Gauche. I get the RG vibe with citrus.

    This frag is pretty good. Got the sample a few days ago. A classy light citrus oriental type scent with some floral notes in there. I personally think it's overhyped and priced. But, this is nose candy.

    I must say, I find RGpH very unpleasant.

    IB otoh smells excellent. I'm arranging for a swap for a small decant at the moment.

    I simply don't find them similar at all.

    I think by its nature, IB is one of those scents that reminds you of many things, but clearly resembles none of them. It's got that old school fougre thing going on, but for me it's not an exact replica of anything. And, in my mind, the quality is simply unmatched. Hype or no hype, it's worth everyone checking out at least once.

    I love this. It's very comforting. I find no similarities to RG.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?
