There is a difference in character as well as strength between the after shave and EdT. The EdT is more dense and well blended and hard to differentiate individual notes whereas the after shave is more vivid and suitable for a day time office environment. There is no match for the EdT on cold nights.

EdT has better strength than the after shave but both stay fairly close to the skin.

Isn't Patou PH just impossible to find anymore? I haven't looked for it recently but I remember it being very scarce and very expensive a few years back. I bought a relatively cheap decant back in the early basenotes days.

Well, there is a 2oz bottle of the EdT on Ebay for $500. There are cheaper after shave bottles up for auction, but it seems that the EdT is the real winner here...

Even a 10 ml splash bottle of the EdT is going for $90... facepalm.gif

You should be aware that the Prive is an entirely different scent - the aftershaves I see on ebay are the Prive. It's a very good scent - a powdery lavender sandalwood - but nothing like Patou PH.

Egoiste today. I agree with Baron and Thomas that this should get more wears. I smelled black tea, cinnamon/vanilla/amber/tonka/..., cherry/cherry blossom.

For the last hours of the evening some AdP - Colonia Intensia.

When was the last time Creed Boutique offered samples online? I've been waiting for a restock but it never seems to come... the sample section seems removed from their site.

Check out this link. Patou Pour Homme seems to come up on ebay Germany quite regularly.

Thanks Baron, I actually didn't notice that the EdT for $500 was actually the Privé. The after shave testers seem to be Patou PH, but are only decants...

I think I might be the only person in the worldwide online fragrance community who dislikes Egoiste.

I've been alternating between my new purchases lately: Encre Noire and Terres d'Hermes. 

 

Really happy with both of them. Encre Noire will fill that smoky vetiver niche until I decide to pick up Sycomore.

 

I was really surprised to see Creed and L'Artisan amongst the regular turds at Winners today. Will have to go to back later.
