    Not what this is about.
    Consider yourself lucky that you don’t know what this is about.
    You should into Sephora and ask “Where’s the _________?” (Anything from your list).
    Film it on your phone, please; we definitely want to see the look on their/his/her face when you ask.
    Lmao I hear ya, missed “mainstream” I guess, but I don’t think niche houses are that far off honestly.
    Funny enough I was dragged by my girl into an ulta this past week(they have nice thick scent strips so I snagged a few, keep it on the hush) and I smelled a few frags, coco mademoiselle (because of the post a few days ago), some armani, a few d&g, and some others, still didn’t get that feel. Maybe i’m missing something

    I view your point NoobSinth, but I also think there is some sharpness in nowadays perfumery.

    You commented about some reasons as price and projection (get noticed), I would add amber notes as "the last bastion of luxury and sophistication for the uneducated mass".

    Anyway for a noobie, there is a clear difference between Western and East taste, and probably the last one is, in general, less "sharp". I think that maybe the new "Oud Wave" in western perfumery is a way to balance the latest tendencies.
