    Default New Spring Fragrance

    Hello fellow basenoters!! It has been awhile since I've asked a question but here it goes. I am trying to purchase just ONE new niche spring fragrance and have narrowed it down to 2 choices(extremely difficult to do for me.) Invasion Barbare or Xerjoff Kobe. The note breakdown for both seems dynamite and something that I am sure to like. My question is which one would you choose if you only had to choose one, and why? Thanks for any and all responses!!!

    Thanks for the replies. Hednic you have a ton of fragrances. I really enjoy different, well composed fragrances with great longevity such as Black Afgano, M, and Carnal Flower(maybe not different but certainly well composed). Do you have any suggestions other than IB for future purchase?

    Invasion Barbare is a better scent IMO and far less expensive if you purchase it without the resin bust but I gotta be honest with you, that is a really cool bottle!
    My current top ten:
    1. Oud Wood
    2. Straight to Heaven
    3. Epic Man
    4. Santal 33
    5. Tonka Imperial
    6. Pure Malt
    7. Jubilation XXV
    8. L'air Du Desert Marocain
    9. Envy
    10. Terre D'Hermes
    Currently wearing: Epic Man by Amouage
