    Nice! I found my original 2006 bottle (back when I still wore signature scents) and been wearing it quite a bit lately (wore it last night, in fact). The top notes have turned, but after a few minutes, brings me back to the days that I wore this a lot. Great tobacco fragrance for me, but I see now how it resembles a bit of D&G The One, which was another signature scent from years past.

    Thanks! When you say signature scents do you mean designer? It's funny you mention that the top notes have turned. The bottle I bought today had been sitting in a store for 9 years and a tiny amount had entered the tube inside the bottle. The first spray was horrible. That tiny amount inside the tube had turned. Luckily I sprayed it a few times later in the evening and it smelled great. I got scared for a second but luckily it now smells great.
    I was lucky to find a bottle with the older wooden cap.
    I think the one by d&g is more or less a copy.

    Signature scent means I only wore one fragrance, pretty much until I tired of the fragrance or finished it. Then I would either purchase another bottle of it or be in the mood to try something else. They usually lasted about a year before I started hunting for another. This particular one is my second bottle.

    As far as turning, this was back in the day when I stored my fragrances in the bathroom, not knowing any better. This one in particular, once I stopped wearing it probably kept it in the bathroom for the duration of its life, between house moves and such. So, I'm not surprised it has turned. I do have an Aspen aftershave from the early to mid 90's that has not turned, so quite impressed with that one.

    Glad yours was only in the tube. It's a great fragrance and definitely brings back a lot of what I was into at the time.

    Hey! I agree too! Though, I did pay $65 or whatever it was going for at Macy's at the time. But I didn't know any better and bought all my stuff MSRP back then.

    Guerlain's Cuir Intense! At Macy's Herald Square of all places! They also had sampler bottles for Santal Royal, Encens Mythique, and Oud Essentiel (not any of the others). I had not smelled them before until today's visit. Only Cuir Intense is available for sale, with about 5 bottles left. I am thinking that perhaps it was a one-off thing where they had all once, and Cuir Intense was the one that did not sell the best. But I absolutely love it, indeed above OE, EM, and SR. I liked these all though, and did not find them as harsh or cheap/artificial-smelling as some of you do (no offense intended-agree to disagree.)

    Love this Cuir Intense, and am beyond glad I bought it, especially today (yesterday) after the Floyd murder case verdict. It will always have a special memory attached, and I know it will last for my lifetime. It is rich and and so beautiful-leather both refined and rugged, and very strong. Special.

    I'm going back and forth on Sycomore, but this time I won't sell my bottle. At the moment I like it a lot! I too have yet to smell Coromandel in parfum

    Sycomore EDP has really grown on me, it differs enough (much creamier) from the EDT for me to consider buying a 200ml bottle (I have a 75ml for now) and not worry about consuming too much of the rare EDT.
