    Default Fille en Aiguilles & Micallef Seducteur

    I tried Seducteur at home off a sample a while back, and it reminds me quite a bit of Fille en Aiguilles, except that it is less syrupy, more dry and spicy (does that make it more 'masculine'?).

    I remember back in the day (2013-2016) there was quite a bit of chatter/discussion around Fille en Aiguilles and many men (here at MFD) were looking for something akin to FeA without the syrup or 'more masculine' or prolonged pine notes. Seducteur might be worth trying - that is if you can somehow get hold of a sample as this line seems hard to try. This one has four reviews on Basenotes (2 negative, 2 neutral), but IMO it's much better than that distribution would suggest. I didn't have enough of a sample to properly assess and rate it, but it'd range 2.5-3.5 out of 5 in my books (neutral-positive).

    Of course, your mileage may vary.

    Own and like both, but prefer the Micallef as like you I do find it spicier.
    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.

    It sounds good, FeA can be a bit sweet. But you’re right, Micallef can be hard to track down.

    Sounds like one I'd better try out as FeA is one of my ALL TIME FAVES!!! Thanks for the tip...
