    Default Blind bought franck Bocklet Cocaine! Good or bad move?

    I found a new 100ml tester of this and I couldn't resist the price, not seen much about it online apart from some brief youtube mentions. Has anyone got it and do they like it??

    Surprisingly expensive here (lists for $283). I trust you paid nowhere near that for a blind buy.

    Probably worth it then, as long as you know what you're getting into. I like Franck Boclet Tobacco (the tobacco part), and there is tobacco in this one. The Tuberose and Caramel though would give me pause.

    I don't think I've smelt tuberose but I like a bit of sweet with leather notes, Tom Ford Tuscan Leather is my main wear atm. If it doesn't work out I'm sure I can flip it on ebay.

    I have owned it since its release and like it. Hopefully you will too.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    Personally it would go against my every extinct to make a purchase as such. Where did you find it?

    I've heard it only takes a little bump to give you a lift.

    An ill-considered move IMO unless your luck holds and you end up liking it well enough to wear on a regular basis. Generally speaking, testers don’t command good prices, partial /used bottles even less so unless they are sought-after rare gems. Since Boclet Cocaine isn’t one of these legendary unicorns I do hope you find it to your liking. Otherwise it could well be a pricey lesson.

    In the UK it's very hard to come by, so even if I don't like it I'll have no problem flipping it on one of the many facebook groups as I saved £100 on the price of it and the 1 review I have seen kinda sold it to me as I have very similar likes to the reviewer and I've blind bought over a dozen niche scents on his recommendation so far(smelling great fragrance reviews) . Where I live there's very few shops which carry niche perfumes so it's a sample from a online shop or a blind buy. Kinda makes it fun
