    Wow. A lot of Fate Man purchases recently. Looks like more folks are coming around on that one (it really is quite good).

    I'd wager it is partly because it hit fragrancenet, so you can get a really good deal on a tester (or even a regular bottle), especially considering the bottle usually goes for like $340.

    Waiting until my beach trip the last weekend of this month. There are a couple of nice outlet stores where I usually find some good stuff. Patience is required until then.

    Finally made my way to Henri Bendels. Wow... so much has been cleared out at this point. I wanted to get Profumi del Forte Marconi 3, but all they had left was a tester. Dang it. I tested about 15 different fragrances... some nice, some pedestrian... I was bummed a few I had interest in were already gone. So I snagged the last two bottles of Private Label instead. Found the opening a bit harsh and dry, but after about 30~45 mins the dry down softens up and the resulting effect is sublime. VERY potent stuff! Seems more like an EdP than EdT. I think I'm really going to like this.

    Congrats! I also got a backup bottle the other day. It was a love at first sniff for me. Awesome and very unique take on vetiver, woods and a hint of leather. Reminds me a bit of Turtle Vetiver Back, not the scent so much, just the overall different oriental direction this one is taking. My favorite from Jovoy.

    I have no idea what possessed me to buy this one in the heat of summer ... But I did

    I love this frag though. It will make regular rotation in my top 5

    Thanks remik, that's good to hear. I'm a big fan of green notes and looking forward to sampling the Forest.

    Most of my buys have been blind, and I'm delighted with the majority, but there are a few that, had I sampled, I wouldn't have chosen. The reviews here on BN are enlightening and in general extremely well written, but fragrance is very subjective!

    Thanks, remik. I found that my first impression was just olfactory naivete. Now that I am accustomed to the fragrance, I'm enjoying the opening as well. I do agree, this is a rather unique take on a vetiver focused fragrance. I enjoy vetiver, but some incarnations become a bit too linear and boring to me after a while (Encre Noire being one). Anyway, I'm glad I hunkered down with two, even though the EdP concentration of this stuff will ensure a bottle lasts a very long time. I doubt I'll ever become bored with this one. And the bottle is just exquisite, tastefully done and high quality.

    Incidentally, Henri Bendel's flagship store in NYC is very elegant. You go up this rather wide winding staircase up to the fragrance station that overlooks the first floor blow, with a view of the 3rd floor above. I should have taken some photos but I didn't want to look like a tourist.

    Funny, I was always so focused on Knize 10, Gold, and Sec that I completely overlooked Forest. Looks like this has been around for some time (first review was in 2006). Is there any similarity to the other fragrances in the Knize line-up, an underlying vibe that makes it feel like it's connected somehow? Or is it completely different?

    Hi mlsweeney,

    Thanks for your kind words, I was hunting Jil Sander Feeling man for a longtime and IMO this is a true masterpiece and a very underrated scent.

    Pontaccio 21 by Ferre is another hidden gem.
