    Have any European Basenoters tried this one yet? Thoughts positive and/or negative?

    Likewise. Hope to get back to the Guerlain Boutique in Paris and try it there before I return home at the end of the month.

    The ylang is sporting its typically heady, mildly spicy ripe banana/white floral facet, but here it's paired with a dry, salty note (I want to say ashy, meaning dry, but there's no smoke) that makes for a particularly queasy combination. I am quite sensitive to 'inedible gourmands', for want of a better term, and your mileage might vary, but for me it's a definite

    Couldn't leave The City of Lights the day after tomorrow without this among my many fragrance purchases. Personally find it quite agreeable.
