Just blind bought Samba Skin for just $12. Looking forward to wearing it later this week.
As I already own Pure Havane and Animale Animale, wonder if it'd would be redundant to own this one too...
keepin' it musky
Considering to make this purchase myself, since I have seen it retailed online around the extremely affordable 10-15$ 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).
I miss Pure Havane. I need it back.
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
Halston Man Amber
Mugler Pure Wood
L'eau Bleue D'issey Pour Homme
Kenzo Jungle Homme
Mauboussin M Generations
They just released Samba Skin Woman!!
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.
