It may be a batch thing as well. I think I would enjoy it a lot more if there was a more fruity, sweet pineapple note.
I smelled my animale animale and the pineapple mixed with the tobacco is just wonderful. The smokiness of my sample is a little too unbalanced I think. I don't hate it, I like it but not for the price. And I definitely like several designers much better. But I guess thats expected anyhow.
