    Default Le Labo Rose 31 or LV Rose des Vents??

    Question on these two scents. One of these is going to be my next pick up. I have smelled both but I am on the fence in regards to which is the better projection/longevity monster. I already have Creed Viking which I have been coming around too, but I don't think is close to smelling like either of these. Any thoughts are much appreciated!!

    I've tried wearing Rose 31 a few times, and it's a bit of a disappointment each time. I'm not too impressed by the longevity or projection of the fragrance. There's also a "Le Labo" sort of scent to it--all of their fragrances smell kind of the same to me.

    I don't have much experience with LV Rose des Vents, but I can definitely say that most of the LV fragrances I've tried have been pretty good in terms of longevity and projection, especially Ombre Nomade, Nouveau Monde, and Matiere Noire.

    I have L'Immensite and I am extremely happy with it. I bought my wife Santal 33 and if she sprays it twice I can smell her coming from 25ft away. That is the most powerful fragrance I have ever smelled.

    I have not tried LV Rose des Vents, so, I can't give a comparative analysis. What I can say is Rose 31 is one of my favorite fragrances, I have owned a few bottles over the years and it certainly has had it's time in my top 5 favorite fragrances (it is true it isn't quite as good as it used to be, but, that is pretty common with fragrances and I wouldn't get too caught up in that, especially if you do not have experience with the old version). I do not get many, if any, parallels with Viking. I don't see any reason why even a small wardrobe wouldn't merit owning both, if that is your concern.

    The recent formulation of Rose 31 have weaker silage and longevity. Not as good as it used to be.
