    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.

    Thanks! My review of the Intense version in the old bottle was rather harsh. I rated it negatively mostly due to poor performance. This version I bought has a different note list and perfomes slightly better.

    Grats, been interested in the new bottle stuff for this - had the Intense version with the metal plate before and enjoyed it - curious if this one is different.

    Well, as far as I've noticed, the note list is a bit different! Projection is not very big, but the fragrance lasts a bit more than it did with the old bottles.

    I bought a couple of 5mL decants before April but they've arrived now so will include them below;
    Mancera Soleil d'Italie,
    Mancera Red Tobacco,
    AdP Sandalo,
    Xerjoff Ceylon.

    Plus a 25/30mL bottle of;
    Parfums de Nicolai - Neroli Intense.

    Lastly, a 15/100mL bottle of;
    Escentric Molecules - Molecule 04. This one piqued my interest a while back and the opportunity arose for me to try for a very reasonable price.

    It has also come the time to do a yearly 'no logo game' with my Facebook circles. The idea is you are 'buddied up' with someone, swap 5 samples labelled '1-5' or 'a-e' and have to guess the notes, the cost, whether it's niche or designer and ultimately what the fragrance is. Very good fun and a great challenge!

    That actually might work really well - something that has more of an aura around you instead of blasting everyone - and more longevity to boot! How's the smell compared to older?
