    Haven't bought it but have tested it recently and, the words you use perfectly describe my feelings for this fragrance too. SA (at Boots) said it was a best seller... I was shocked.

    Leonard Pour Homme.
    Hated it. Was ready to heave it. Forgot it on the shelf.
    Picked it up later, in Autumn and recognized it's beauty.
    First cold day in Autumn I will wear this.
    It smells like burning leaves.
    Turned out to be a brilliant blind buy!
    Scarcity is an illusion. Unlearn it.

    Versace The Dreamer. I instantly recognised it as the signature scent of someone I dislike. It's hard to know if this made me biased but pretty sure I'd have got shot of it anyway- which I did.

    Its amazing how quickly you can relate a scent to someone or a location eh? Happens to me too when I smell certain scents.

    Really? Was it the vintage in the blue plastic bottle? I absolutely LOVE this. It's my biggest romance in ages. I wore it three times this week (I rarely wear the same thing two days running.)

    Just recently blind bought vintage guerlain heritage. Read so many great reviews and thought "yea....this is the one..."

    WRONG!

    Smells like an old man who is trying to impress the young women & oversprays himself with a very strong dated perfume that is just awful.

    Thankfully it was a tiny .13oz. I threw it away like 10 minutes after opening it in the mail. Wasted money but that's how it goes sometimes.

    No this one was the see through bottle, it was so boozey to me and had an old school vibe I couldn't get along with. I do however like sartorial which is quite old school imo

    Really I've heard good things about this ? Is it too spicy ? I've heard it bears no resemblance to the original which I love .

    Bijan Men - despite I love the scent, I would't have bought it if I knew before that it vanishes within 30 minutes ...
    But that's about it. Got at least half of my scents as blind buys and don't regret a single one.

    I was going to say Dreamer as well. I thought I would love it based on the notes, the reviews, and gosh darn the bottle is cool looking. Even though I only spent $20 bucks, I almost felt cheated.

    That or Insurrection Pure II. When I first started this, I got wheeled into the Aventus hype and...no. This one smells gross. Almost like an off mixture of cool water with an aventus opening.
    And I don't think I even like Aventus that much.

    This has ruined several fragrances for me! It is also the reason I try to avoid using my favorite scents on days when I know something emotionally or physically tough is going to occur. I don't want to forever connect my favorites with a terrible occasion or event.
