    2- Definitely high end. Rose / geranium / sandalwood
    3- does the gopher feel redemption?
    4- yes , no . Until the cream's scent wears off. Then you're back at square one.
    4- terre de Bois - miller Harris and Azure Lime Tom Ford

    3 - I'm no big fn, but as always, it's up to one's tastes.
    4 - using lotions, including unscented ones, does help a bit retain perfumes, especially if one has dry skin. But it is not the perfume lotion per se, which is usually very lightly scented, it is the fact that the skin is not too dry and is more moisturized.
    5 - not really. Citrus molecules are very volatile, so, even in the examples mentioned above, longevity is relatively poor. You simply cannot have long lasting citrus.

    2. Is there even a need to categorize anything as high end or low end? Is price the sole determinant?

    3. If you can afford it, yes. But bear in mind fragrances of similar quality can be had for less.

    4. Yes in my experience. But not significant enough to warrant its purchase imo.

    5. Atelier Cologne Orange Sanguine, Xerjoff Nio etc. But Cacio's right. Citrus oil being what it is. Just carry a small atomiser of your favorite citrus fragrance.
