    Default Dior Homme 2020, GPH 2003, Dirty English

    Are there any prominent compounds in these fragrances have in common? I see cedar listed in all three, so maybe Iso E? The reason I ask is that those three fragrances I just feel like something is missing, as though when I read about them I am reading about a fragrance that I am not experiencing. I'm thinking I just can't smell something, I've heard of people not being able to smell Iso. I guess I should just bite the bullet and buy a sample of Eccentric Molecules and see if that is what it is. How about it people, anything there? Or is it just three random fragrances with no relation?
    It’s tragic to think that heroic man’s great destiny is to become economic man, that men will be reduced to craven creatures who crawl across the globe competing for money, who spend their nights dreaming up new ways to swindle each other.

    Iso E Super is the Schrödinger's Cat of base notes, so you're close to the mark.

    GPH and Dirty English have something common, DH 2020 is absolutely different.
    I would compare DH 2020 with Terre d'Hermes and Encre Noire in terms of Iso E Super+vetiver dry down.

    Until you spray the fragrance, there both is and isn't Iso E Super in it?

    For me, pretty much this.
    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.

    Interesting. I was figuring it would be either a resounding yes, or I will consider that basically a no. I do not perceive any similarities, per se, beyond the aforementioned feeling that I am missing something.
