    Love it or loathe it, one thing is certain - it knows what it's about.

    No equivocation.

    Wore cactus yesterday and always very impressed. Smells very natural and no synthetic vibe that one gets from so many scents these days.

    The noir. My lady says it smells like a ritz Carlton and is classy. She loves it and will wear it too.

    (uncertain about Vibrant Leather, in terms of performance and also of resemblance to Aventus, especially as it has recently disappeared or at least become a bit sparse in Zara outlets, will have to retest this and post more on BN if and as soon as it resurfaces)

    How do you get on with the performance with this one?? It's strange because when I smell it up close I can't smell a great deal but I keep catching whiffs of it in the air.

    I concur Man, its gorgeous juice. One of Chanels best IMO - very opulent! Its been on my list for some time. It leans slighty feminine to my nose but its so damn good I may get it anyway.

    I’m with you on this one Chuck. Pacific Rock Moss is very good but unfortunately its early hype due to a certain female Youtube reviewer means its been overlooked by many here on the forum. One of the most satisfying and relaxing sea breeze fragrances out there and I get great performance from it too.

    A few spritzes from my bottle of original M7 on this cool spring day in the northeast. Sometimes I forget how great this is...

    Yes...It's lovely. Just so expensive. Need to be sure before I pull the trigger. Maybe a couple more wearing.

    Pryn Turkish Leather

    breathtaking fragrance. I don't think it's going to be continued. Good thing I bought a backup bottle. Liquides Imaginaires Soave Desert is a little similar but the Pryn is much richer.

    Same experience on Music for a While. Didn't care much for it on the back of my hand. A week later, did a full wearing and ended up purchasing a bottle.

    Vibrant Leather EdP has bad performance - maybe 3-4 hours and then it's gone. The scent itself is nice, though. I have 12ml bottle that I bought in their store for 4EUR

    Can only speak for myself - it was worth it for me. I found the performance better and the woods and spices more intense. If there is a locale close by you that has both, it might be best to compare and judge for yourself before shelling out the money for the extrait.

    Pleasantly surprised by Lanvin Oxygène. It's like Encre Noire Sport, rounder and less the laundro-musk that I'm not keen on in ENS.
