No, oddly enough I've never tried it. I kind of like patch, too.
...and SMW, as well.
Been out of the game for a few years, rotating between some CDG stuff and feeling pretty pleased. However, I just discovered a shoe-box full of samples from when this was a serious interest, and realized I'd like to get back to it... A few things:
* Are samples in plastic bottles holding up after 2-3 years? Stored dark and relatively free from temperature changes.
* Best site (cheap, nice variety) for ordering new ones shipped to (within?) Europe?
* Anything I need to try? Brands to look out for? The box contained Yatagan, L'Artisan Méchant Loup (think I had a few more from them and really liked them), Montale Black Aoud, Aoud Lime, and Aoud Safran, CDG 2, a bunch of Byredo I think I got from a friend, Idole by Lubin, Czech 88, Acqua di Parma. I have no idea what some of them are (50% are unused), and why a 17 y/o myself would've ordered them.
Winter is coming, so some focus on stuff for colder weather, but anything is of interest.
