    Default FBW? Strong objections or recs? Molinard Cuir, Habanita, Eau Delle, YSL Sleek Suede

    I'm on a discounter's site and this is what's in my cart:

    Molinard Cuir
    Molinard Habanita
    Diptyque Eau Duelle
    YSL Sleek Suede

    Any thoughts are appreciated!

    Habanita is a classic, smooth tobacco and vetiver, very good. Not a fan of eau duelle, a bit average for me, but it has many estimators. I have not tried the other two.

    Recommending if possible at least the two Molinard fragrances-especially if the price, the quality/value for money or both are good

    Two very nice ones especially the Molinard.

    I think I would be most excited for the Molinards.

    Do try Eau Duelle at some point, its a very beautiful earthy vanilla scent.

    I do like the modern Habanita, but it takes a bit of getting used to. It has multiple funky aspects that remind me of Kouros and its "good-bad" goodness.

    I’m ok with ‘funky aspects.’
