    Whatever it is, I would make sure it is from a Nietzsche house
    Seeking: Bottles/decants : of Pomegranate Noir, Midnight in Paris EDP, Feeling Man, Essence of John Galliano, Azzaro pour Homme (vintage),...etc.

    Seeking decant/sample of Aramis Calligraphy Rose, Penhaligon's Esprit de Roi, PdE Ambre Russe, Jil Sander Feeling Man ....etc. I have samples to swap.

    Escentric Molecule 02; I think it was Nietzsche who said, "And if you gaze long into an ambroxan abyss, the ambroxan abyss also gazes into you."

    I just read your review. The parfum seems very Duchamp, kind of avant garde concept.

    I suppose it is akin to Duchamp, but no more so than Escentric Molecules.

    I find it hard to find a perfume that embodies nihilism. Nihilism is the absence of meaning, whereas fragrance always has meaning for someone personally because you make the choice.

    Something that says I've rejected everything meaningful except my deep concern about what others think of me and some random perfume house's ability to provide some scent that will bring others down with me.

    Maybe something automobile exhaustish?
