    Krizia Moods Uomo is terrific, and you can find it at a decent price. The original Krizia Uomo is also excellent.

    That is a strong statement and I agree with you on that.

    I might pick up another 60-120ml as I fear running out.

    That's a great pickup, I consider it a very nice conservative work scent in the office.

    Very nice acquisition. Would you consider Fahrenheit's other accessories like the soap? I was browsing at that just now.

    Not much into soaps or after shave / shave foam etc. But shower gel, that I'd be interested in for sure. I used to buy before collecting EDT / EDC and a shower gel but it's fallen off as getting shower gels for vintages isn't that easy.

    That's sorta because it's already a mega-expensive unicorn and a lot of people don't bother being curious when the price for admission just to try it is so high (since sampling discontinued frags is almost impossible for everyone but the most determined). The few folks flush enough to bankroll such curiosity will have to suffice in singing its praises.



    That being said, I'm sure it's at least reasonably good because Jean Desprez didn't mess around. I'd be curious how close it is to the feminine Bal Versailles but not curious enough to throw $150-$200 at it blind. Such is the nature of the beast when dealing primarily in DC'd masculines however, unless you get in before the powersellers do or someone discovers a huge NOS cache somewhere.

    Here's mine:
    It has that similar outstanding aromatic feel as Francesco Smalto Edt Pour Homme ('87) that you just can't stop sniffing, but then emerges this combination of castoreum, patchouli and oakmoss that, to me, is so delicious that I just want it to last forever. However, it dries down and settles on your skin fairly quickly to something earthy, damp and soft leathery that lasts for the remainder of it's time. So it's not a sillage/projection beast, but it will give you 12+ hours of deliciousness when also applied to clothing (which I have to because my skin-type is quite dry).

    I've heard this to be animalic - the mid phase sounds very promising...
