    Intense.

    There are a few reviews here for this unicorn fragrance, but scant reviews elsewhere. If you can find it now, you're likely looking at $200 for what was originally far less than that.

    Good deals were dime and dozen for the longest time I remembered. I remember seeing it go for $150 to as low as $100 several years ago on Fragrance Net, eBay and even here. That was the time to purchase New Haarlem bottles.

    Happen to own and enjoy this rare one.
    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.

    Yeah I've also got a bottle; it's very similar to the original but with a more accentuated vanilla/amber all the way through. Definitely not worth the 10x extra coin. I think I prefer the regular actually.

    Rochas Man has a prominent raspberry note that is nonexistent in New Haarlem. Some people may not care for the fruit note in the cheaper one. I agree that they are not all that similar.
