    Well considering there are Preferred Frag's "versions" of Tom Ford Noir Anthracite, Polo Supreme Oud and Supreme Leather, it doesn't surprise me one bit!

    I've found out that often times that simply means they don't carry it and simply want you to buy something else.

    Yes, that's exactly what it is, but since text poorly conveys levity without onamonapea, here we go: "hahahahahaha"

    That should be enough reassurance for a stranger on the Internet. Good day.

    Just tried this at Sephora. Very leathery...convinced me to look into purchasing. It's quite daring IMO, but I think I can pull it off.

    Tis the way its always been with loads of scents and will be but don't say it too loud otherwise you'll upset the fragrantory hipsters that congregate here and are just waiting for the moment that someone asks them why they smell like an elderly male yak has urinated on them so they can say "This? Oh, its been discontinued so you can't buy it..."

    Saw this at the local Sephora in the Midwest.

    *takes a bow*

    Telling y'all, I've noticed this trait again and again with so many scents on here that its unreal. It seems the harder something is to find the greater it smells to a certain group, even if they never gave a toss about it when it was being cleared out in bargain bins for 10 bucks but once its gone through the old discontinued>youtube hype>eBay scalpers cycle and is now back on the block at a few hundred percent markup it becomes a "grail" that all the simple minded peasants weren't sophisticated enough to appreciate the first time round and yet (amusingly) if one peruses the posts history of these waxed mustache, nanobrew sipping, fixie riding oh so cool members you'd nary find a whisper of said fragrance before they were told what to think...

    Strange days indeed.

    I can see why some people might not think it's "good" because it's the polar opposite of stuff like Bleu or Sauvage, or any other modern sweet.
    I'm very impressed by it. It's the only cologne that really stands out at Macy's.
    Whoever made the previous threads about it being an underrated gem, thanks, because if I hadn't read those I never would have tried it out.
    Polar opposite, I'm in.

    I remember the first couple times I sampled this and I was so entranced with it. I loved it but it was such a bizarre scent from what I was use to.

    I decided to go to some random site called Basenotes and read up on what other people thought. I remember thinking, ok, there's got to be other people out there who enjoy this as much as I do.

    I used to compare this to Fahrenheit while thinking that the Dior was better. I'm starting to prefer GGA. It's less busy, and a more simplified leather fragrance. I feel this really is a masterpiece. I hardly wear it, but it's easily in the top 3 of my collection:

    I like it a lot. I think ive burned like 30 ml so far or something. It has great charector. I wish there was some type of developement. This and TF Noir Anthracite remind me of each other. They do not smell alike. But they both have a masculine throwback appeal, in a stripped down linear manor.

    I can totally see that - both fragrances that I own and love. They share a kind of brash, aggressive, very dry macho character, but not musk-soaked manliness nor ambroxan-fueled woody dryness.

    Absolutely. Tom Ford Oud Wood Intense completed the trifecta, and they all came out around the same time.

    I can see that. It does remind me of GGAs style. Like an aromatic, a leather, and an animalic fragrance all in similar premise.

    I'll need to try Oud Wood Intense. I think I tried it back in the fall but I don't remember it standing out with me.

    Of the 3 I think Gucci has the best presentation by far. The whiskey flask thing perfectly fits. The slightly ovoid cap, clicks into place. Its nice. OWI is just blah, same old TF, Anthracite def fits the theme of the fragrance, but the bottle is just so glossy. I prefer the bottles of the edp and edt to this one. The cap could use a little more weight, and no TFs click, so. GGA, winner.

    I wore this on Saturday and it was decidedly "meh". Some days the SOTD just doesn't click.

    I'm also a fan of TF Noir Anthracite, though I don't own a bottle (yet). Now you mention it, I see the similarity of approach with GGA. Not tried TF OWI.
