    For me, it was not the most challenging thing I've worn. I found it rather comforting.

    I was underwhelmed by it. Thought it would be daring, animalic or at least more musky after everything I read about it. And thought it would be a beast. It’s a tamed mute pinscher 0. At least I found an awesome musky scent from the same brand: Dans Tes Bras.

    I wasn't underwhelmed; I loved it and found it to have some wonderful gourmand qualities, particularly in the dry down. One of the better things I've smelled lately. Lasted a very long time on my skin, too. I haven't heard of Dans Des Bras but will try to sample it if I get the chance.

    Another fan! It took me more than ten wears over the space of a year to come to grips with its beauty. It's now a wardrobe staple. I never care much for Timbuktu.

    I love Dzongkha from the get-go. It's interesting how we click with certain scents right away and how it takes some time to appreciate them. I am doing vintage/classic scents this month and it'd be a fun test for me to see how my taste has changed.

    That one isn't bad although there others that stood out more like Vetiver Extraordinaire, Carnal Flower, Portrait Of A Lady, Musc Ravager.

    Dior Homme Sport 2017 gets a lot of flack, but I am a bit wowed by it today. Does anyone else think this has similarities to Eau Sauvage EDT?

    Cuir Ottoman: It's smooth! Didn't expect that, I wanted some leathers samples but this one is just super comfy.

    LDDM: NOT wow on strip, but when i tried it on my skin I was very intoxicated, i kept going back to it the whole day even though my partner didn't care too much for it (she didn't hate it, so for a fine critic like her it's an achievement!)

    La Nuit De Feu - big wow for me.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    Dubai Black Sapphire. Revisiting this one after a while. A nice honey-oud.
