    Granville and Le Petit Grain open up with citrus in an almost EdC style before drying down into a dry herbal scent.
    1. No, never blind buy (I do, but do as I say, not as I do. I'm taking no responsibility for your fragrance gambling).
    2. Get them both. You're a Basenoter and you know you're going to end up purchasing them both eventually.
    3. Yes, it has been reformulated.
    4. Looking for a signature scent? You've come to the wrong place.

    I don’t understand.It is so vast that surpasses all understanding.Understanding is always limited.But not understanding can have no boundaries.I feel like I'm much more complete when I don't understand.Not understanding,like I say,is a gift.Not understanding,but not as a simple-minded.The good thing is to be intelligent and not understand.It's a strange blessing, like having craziness without being crazy.It is a meek disinterest,it is a stupid sweetness.

    Definitely agree with the Granville by Christian Dior suggestions. I will add one that hasn't been mentioned: Baime by MPG

    Azzaro PH is a good suggestion.

    Some others: YSL Pour Homme, Ralph Lauren Safari for Men

    Also Oxford & Cambridge by Czech & Speake is another superb one worth checking out. I think the current stuff on the shelves is watered down though given that the base is oakmoss & sandalwood.
