    As I already own Pure Havane and Animale Animale, wonder if it'd would be redundant to own this one too...
    Are you not entertained??? Is this not why you are here??

    Considering to make this purchase myself, since I have seen it retailed online around the extremely affordable 10-15$ price point. Would like to know if I should blind buy this fragrance, considering I do enjoy Pure Havane and, moreover, there are hardly any (close to none) tobacco and/or vanilla fragrances I encountered so far and did not like (irrespective if mass-market, designer or niche).

    Samba Skin Man is a winner I've worn this a few times this week (wearing it also today). It is a steal, considering its ridiculously cheap price. Great scent, and overall, it is close to A*Men Pure Havane, as others had mentioned before. They differ somewhere in the mid-phase... PH has the fresh vanilla, kind of like mentholated, where as SS has a light lipstick-y/candy vibe. Patchouli is present when it dried down.

    As for performance on my skin, PH is ten times better than SS. I've used 7 sprays (2 on the neck, the rest on the body) today before going to church and I think Samba Skin's projection is still moderate at best. For the price, I'm not complaining.

    I wish to see Samba Skin Man in the Fragrance Directory so I can write a review. I've submitted it more than a couple of weeks ago, but hasn't been approved yet, not sure why.

    I bought a second bottle. Can't beat this deal!!! The first I bought on ebay and it was leaving like a sieve. The guy gave me a discount, but it made me suspicious. So I bought a 2nd from Frangrancenet. Same juice, and LOVE it!!!!! It's like a less "jagged" version of pure Havane. PH smells the way a backwoods cigar looks, whereas SS smells the way a Swisher Sweet looks: more uniform. I like the vanilla and cinnamon. They really offset the cherry tobacco. What a steal.
    My top ten, in no particular order:
    Insurrection II Wild
    Polo
    Halston Man Amber
    Mugler Pure Wood
    24 Gold
    L'eau Bleue D'issey Pour Homme
    Kenzo Jungle Homme
    Terre D'Hermes
    Mauboussin M Generations
    Calvin(original blue)

    They just released Samba Skin Woman!!
    $_57.JPG

    SKIN WOMAN- With a soft petally top and a warm sensual back, Samba Skin captures the sexy freshness of just-showered skin. Sparkling topnotes of fresh bergamot and peach nectar are teased by a steamy hint of incense. Heartnotes of fluttery petals hint at a youthful femininity, with elements of delicate dewy peony, gentle rose de mai, and sensual jasmine. Irresistible warmth emerges from the back, where long-lasting soft musks are blended with creamy sandalwood and velvety oakmoss for a touchable, huggable sensation.

    I was thinking I could pull it off until I read about the fluttery petals and youthful femininity.
