    Default Which one is the better overall fragrance in your opinion?

    Hello again ladies and gentleman. I am looking for some expert and not so expert advice from the Basenotes community. I have sampled Idole de Lubin in edt form,Bentley Men Intense and am looking to seek out the edp of Idole de Lubin. I was wondering how you would rate these three scents in terms of longevity, projection and overall scent? I was also wondering if the edp od Idole de Lubin was worth my time since the edt smells amazing but seems to be very fleeting on my skin?
    My current top ten:
    1. Spice and Wood
    2. Tonka Imperiale
    3. Dior Homme
    4. Pure Malt
    5. Oud Wood
    6. Ambre Nuit
    7. L'air Du Desert Marocain
    8. Noir de Noir
    9. Apple Brandy
    10.Straight to Heaven

    I own all three and my non-expert ranking would be:

    1. Bentley For Men Intense
    2. Idole de Lubin EDP
    3. Idole de Lubine EDT

    Don't be modest, you are definitely an expert nose. Is there a difference in scent between the edt and edp of Idole?

    Honestly don't notice much of difference in the smell, but the EDP definitely lasts much longer, at least on my skin.

    Bentley for Men Intense is the best new fragrance of the year IMO.

    I have been surprised to see comparisons between Indole de Lubin and Bentley Intense. I not smelling the similarity at all. Some have said the Bentley is similar to LDDM in the top notes and I agree with that. But a similarity between Indole and Bentley? Not to my nose.

    I have purchased the Bentley Intense, but the Indole is something altogether different to me and I would not be tempted to buy it.

    Longevity and projection of the Bentley is excellent. And two thumbs up for the overall scent. I think it's a wonderful and transforming scent. Great from beginning to the excellent end. But the Intense is powerful stuff, so spray with that in mind.

    I have to be honest the drydown is very similar to Bond No.9 Silver Factory. This is making me want to test the edp of Idole De Lubin before running out and buying a bottle of Bentley Intense.

    Wow, this thread is getting zero love? Nobody likes Idole?
