    Ok, so my Pure Parfum was on the doorstep early this morning. I put two sprays on my wrist and two sprays in the crook of my arm. When comparing extrait to EDP of any fragrance, I expect better projection from an EDP and better longevity from an extrait. I have to admit, I am shocked by how bad both the projection and longevity are on this PP version of C&P. I can only smell it within an inch of the two spray points. Shortly after spraying, I asked my wife to smell, and she could not smell until her nose was pressed against my skin, and her words were, "it smells like a general sourness, nothing more." So, I took a shower, let my skin sit fragrance free for several hours, and sprayed again. This time, two C&P to my right wrist, and two EO1 PP to my left wrist. The EO1 has performed as it always does. C&P is a whisper again.

    I really hope it is a matter of the C&P PP not being properly macerated, because $350 for something like this is a crime (and punishment) in itself. The EDP performs well and smells great. Very frustrated to write this post.
    While I'm very disappointed to hear this I have to say that your feedback was what I've been waiting for all week and it's greatly appreciated. I was all ready to take the plunge and go for the 50ml as the EdP is THAT good. Guess I'll cool my jets and wait to see what you have to say after it hangs out in the bottle for a little while.

    Thanks so much for posting.

    I will be sure to share updates. I also hope anyone who had a different, more positive experience with the PP concentration chimes in. The last thing I want to do is steer anyone away from purchasing. The EDP was one of the best things I have smelled in 2020. The PP is definitely the same fragrance, just a different character.

    After spending a bit of time with the Tigerlust PP, I have to say, Iím feeling a lot like Jcello... really let down. My first review was very dismissive, ďsure it smells great but it smells a lot like everything else ensar has ever done.Ē After some time I thought, I am being hard on a scent that smells great: EO1 + EO2? How could that be bad. Now, going back to it, I like the smell just fine but I absolutely covered myself in the stuff this morning and thereís been zero projection. Zero. Barely a skin scent. Iím not a beast mode type, I love Attars. This just has me absolutely baffled. Why would I ever spend this kind of money on a pure parfum when I can barely sense Iím wearing it. The only time it kicked in was while I was working out in doors and I donít think itís the type of scent meant for that. If the case is the same with C&P maybe itís best to stick to Attars and EDPs from ensar.

    This is the opposite of my experience with the Pure Parfum. I get great projection albeit becomes soft around 4 hours in and I get up to 12 hours on the skin. If I spray my clothing I’ll smell it for days as I walk around. I wonder if a new batch was made?

    Without a doubt! I thought about snagging your bottle when you had it up because it's so outstanding.

    The PP of EO1 and EO2 are absolute beasts- some of the strongest scents I own so I don't think we can apply this across the board. I wish it were that easy! Haha
