    That I could certainly believe. It was released in 1992 just before Serge Lutens started his own collection. From the notes listed I wonder if it shares any similarities to something like Egoiste.

    Serge Lutens released this under the same name years later. I wonder how the Shiseido formulation compares to the SL.
    Well....$70. Haha! Not cheap I guess, but at the current prices I'd never own a full bottle.

    Just bought these:

    Lubin Gin Fizz and the cologne version of Miracle as a toe dip. The Gin Fizz is sharp in a good way & tangy; enjoying the lemony, juniper freshness.

    Gin Fizz is neat, as I recall. I need to sample it again. Miracle is not my fave Lenthéric, but certainly worth trying.

    Yeah, it's lasted about 6 hours, which I didn't expect, and has a soft woody drydown. Very unisex for the era. Miracle is a nice caramel woody number, but nothing shoulder-shaking.

    That's a sweet deal for a partial. Jules skews a bit on the pricy side. Doesn't that it isn't as widely available as compared to Fahrenheit and Eau Sauvage.

    Ditto on Coriolan. I have M de Morabito, about which I only said (for reasons now forgotten), "it smells great," although my wearing prompted an exploration into the relationship between Morabito, the venerable leather goods house; Pascal Morabito, jeweler and sculptor from the same family; and their (quasi-)independent fragrance lines.

    As for Basile Uomo, I found the original version to be a very pleasant surprise, so the Forte flanker is on my to-buy list, even though Papsi no like.

    Nah it is better than many you have, the forte
    But the sour note puts me off. If your remove that sour note it is like Bugatti in some ways

    I've only tried Coriolan from that group, and while no fragrance has yet to intoxicate me, I agree it's rather nice.

    Well. When/If it arrives, out of Eastern Europe, I'll send a snippet. It is presented as a Tester and After Shave Spray. I've had difficulties receiving items out of Western Europe, however the former USSR states seem more reliable albeit slow boat.

    Just don't buy Tom Ford or Chanel from former Eastern Bloc, as it's almost always fake.
