    Question Ex Nihilo French Affair - How is the performance?

    Happy new year fellow fragheads,

    During a trip I smelled "Ex Nihilo French Affair" and loved it, however, I forgot to ask the sales person some questions about its performance. Anyone here who owns this one and could tell me a bit more about it?

    For me it was fresh green, sweet and woody and I felt like that this could be my new signature scent. I just don't want to buy another fragrance that smells great but fades into nothigness after two hours, so opinions are highly appreciated.

    Happen to own this and performance on my skin is extremely good.

    As I own every release from the house, I guess you can say that I like it a lot and my feeling for it is still the same.

    Thank you for your input. Coming back to performance: You said it performs extremely well on your skin. How many hours are we talking about?

    Applied in early morning, it goes until late afternoon for me.

    I have bought a number of samples of Ex Nihilo fragrances for my other half, including this. Performance on her is great - she is an oversprayer by heart and 4-6 sprays will last her comfortably 12 hours. I would say it is worth re-trying and you can judge performance for yourself.

    Thanks, guys. Guess I will try it one more time and probably pull the trigger.
