I bought Black Touch about a year ago after hearing it was very similar to TdH, but having never smelt the latter I was unable to compare. Tried a couple times and did one full wearing, then sold it on ebay a couple months ago. From what I read TdH has a strong citrus note and I just didn't get any of that from BT...just a dark earthy, nutty smell.(peanuts???) I have since discovered heavy vetiver scents just aren't my thing, live and learn
But like you, I have been on a big inexpensive scent kick lately and am getting some really great ones!!!(360 black, diesel plus plus, samba kiss me and skin to name a few) And unfortunately a couple of ones that just didn't do it for me(jacomo silver, EC carte blanche and 7 wonders) But Altamir is something that has peaked my interest lately, the only thing scarring me away from it...is that I've seen it compared to Fleur Du Male which I couldn't stand. WAY too floral for me.

Obtw-have a bottle of Franck Olivier's Sunrise which is pretty good as a summer/spring cologne...supposed to be just like AF fierce? Here again though I've never tried the latter, so don't know if it's true or not...but good on it's own merit IMO
