Bois de Portugal. I haven't worn this in a quite a while. It has a distinct cinnamon note on the top that I don't remember.
Vetiver Extraordinaire. I haven't worn this in a while. A great, sharp vetiver.
Sorry, I seem to be permanently behind on SOTD lately. Too much travel. I just have a sample bottle (maybe 2ml) that I got from Saks, and that has maybe one squirt left. I agree it is not different enough to pursue a split. Next time I am by Saks though I will hit them up for another sample and send it to you. you just pay the postage. I meant to PM this to Notreknip. I am lame.
I only get a mild powdery note, but I am using a sample bottle I got at Saks. I looked up the price - $220 for 50ml. And I thought Duro was expensive!
Back to Black. I agree with L'I that this is a tobacco/vanilla scent, not leather/vanilla. I also get a touch of powdery oriental like patchouli or amber as well as honey.

Tried two scents of note last week, Chergui and Eau d'Hermes, both of which I have been wanting to try for a while. I grabbed both from the traveling sample box, and they both knocked me over. I usually don't like scents as intense as Chergui but it was fantastic. It is so different I don't know how to describe it. It was also the fist scent my wife asked me to not wear again . Eau d'Hermes is also fantastic: a civet/leather/lavender. If you want to try a scent with...
We don't miss you either
