  1. Re: Initio’s Oud for Greatness deserves more recognition

    Eh? It's plain mediocre. There are actually much better oud fragrances from Montale and Mancera at less than half the price.

    Sure, if you like sour roses then this one could be the one. It's more casual, light-hearted than something like Paestum Rose. Just curious, what's your Lutens to-try list?
  17. Re: Name the fragrance you tried/smelled today for the first time.

    It was okay-ish. Very much stands out among mainstream masculines, in fact it smells closer to a conventional feminine than unisex. Lots of pink pepper, besides rose. I didn't like it as much because...
