    Ooh that sounds good... Not a superfan of Drakkar Noir, but a "Drakkar Vert" I'll take! Excellent description

    The Aramis SEDC wore off fairly quick, so on to the next - Lacoste, very nice '02 P&G.

    I did transfer it to an atomizer, then tossed the bottle - not sure if it was made in Germany or Italy. Interesting to read the differences.



    I think I have a sample of the current version of Duc de Vervins floating around somewhere. I remember it at the Houbigant counter at "Bergie's" when I was there last year. Haven't tried the Crown Perfumery Park Royal - will add it to the growing list.
    I would be interested to hear your thoughts on current Duc de Vervins. I remember when I used to have Duc de Vervins, there were plenty vintage bottles available on eBay at reasonable prices and I could tell by looking at the boxes. I’ll share if I remember how I identified the vintage version. The bottle and cap were not the best quality but the scent was quite good.

Well worth owning both, save that both are discontinued and Park Royal's ascending price may soon approach Nobile's.
    You’re right, there are some differences between Park Royal and Nobile, but I place Nobile, English Blazer, Duc de Vervins, Park Royal and Drakkar Noir in the same family. All others might have been created around the 1980’s except Park Royal which was introduced much earlier but re-created somewhere around the 80’s - 90’s. I find most Crown Perfumery fragrances have older formulas retuned to the powerhouse era ingredients which makes the end result very unique and interesting.

    I am starting to imagine how Fougere Royale would have smelled if it had been re-introduced in the 80’s instead of 2010 or may be Duc de Vervins was an attempt to update the legendary Fougere Royale, since it was released in the aromatic fougere era by the same company credited with creating the fougere genre. I read or heard somewhere that Duc de Vervins used to be quite expensive at the time of it’s release.

Well, sorry Nobile didn’t work out for you but at least you got to try it. That Guerlain and Park Royal sound good too.
    Well, we can't all agree on every fragrance, and that's cool.

    After yesterday's disappointment, I am making up for it by basking in the comforting aura that is Mouchoir de Monsieur. I'm going with the decant, believed to be an older extrait version, as the weather today is cooperating perfectly for this magnificent offering from Guerlain. My goodness gracious, how I dig this stuff! It's no secret that I'm a Guerlain fan, even though I haven't tried nearly as many as most folk on this forum have, but I've still tried a few. And MdM just might be my favorite. One day, I hope to locate a square bottle of this sublime fragrance. Ahhhhhhhhh, this is such a calming elixir. Total contentment right now.

    I do enjoy this, but I kind of agree with your point of view on Nobile.

    A good-smelling spicy/herbal citrus and patchouli eau, with a twist. The twist is that it's a "treatment fragrance" for your skin: "dynamisante" translates as "energizing," but it also plays on "dynamique" (dynamic) and "santé" (health), and the bottle text promises "vitality, freshness, firmness." I gather it was reformulated to the scent's detriment some 4–5 years ago. Knowing my source, this is the vintage stuff, hence my posting here. How that affects the skin toning aspect (courtesy of aloe and ginseng), I couldn't say. If I were that concerned, I'd find a more optimal fragrance-free skin treatment to apply before my fragrance of choice.

    For them what cares, the older stuff has a red and white box, and the word "Eau" is centered above "Dynamisante" on the bottle. The new box is all red, and "Eau" is offset to the left (as in picture in my initial posting, nicked from the BN directory). Either way, it's not terribly expensive in the aftermarket. My collection is lousy with eaux de cologne and EdT variations on that theme (e.g., Eau Sauvage, Déclaration), and this doesn't smell so distinctive that it calls loudly to me, but Dr. T. and I both like it, so a FB is a maybe.
