    Default Guepard XII

    Has anyone tried the apparently enigmatic Guepard XII?
    Seems no info of any kind exists on any site, I even e-mailed Guepard directly but got no response (odd no?)

    Any feedback is greatly appreciated!

    I own this one and it's very nice. Got it for a song, I think on FragranceX no less. Bought it because I had all the other mens releases from this house.

    Thanks hednic, could you classify/describe it? Somehow, based purely on the imagery I've seen, I expecting woody-spicy scent??
    I'm thinking to blind-buy it just to sate my curiosity.

    I bought it more than 6 months ago and I honestly can't remember it. Let me dig it out of my collection and I give you my word I'll get back to you with my best impression.

    Perhaps enigmatic is an understatement... anyone else own or tried this juice?

    Looks like FrangranceX still has it in stock at a fair price.

    Sorry it took me so long to get back to you. I had a bit of trouble finding it among the multitude that is my collection. OK, I just sprayed it on a free area of my arm. You already have the notes that Russlan supplied. This is what my nose picks up. Definitely I can smell raspberry right at the onset and it's to me like they are still growing on the vine. perhaps that's due to the thyme. Definitely not a sweet smell. I get no jasmine and it settles down mostly to a woody cedar (I imagine) with a faint smell of broken-in, worn leather. For an EDP, projection is average and if I remember correctly from the last time I wore it, longevity was fine. Hope this helps and sorry again for the delay.

    That raspberry bush opening sounds intriguing, thanks. I haven't tried any Guepard's and this seems like a good one to start with.
