Scent/Fragrance of the Day thread - Page 1195
I may have to give them the middle finger and bite the bullet on Carnal Flower. I was told last night that both it and PoaL are about to be reformulated.
Yesterday, I tried on Aqua Vitae from MFK. Lasted over 6 hours, way beyond my expectations. The drydown is really good.
Also sprayed some Lumiere Noire Pour Femme on test paper, and put it on my office desk. Another amazing piece of work, and I find it even better than the Pour Homme version.
Apart from the Cashmere Oud and Velvet Oud, there is nothing in the MFK line that I dislike. As I am headed to Paris soon, I think my wallet is in trouble. Also determined to get some Idole Lubin when I am over there.
Did a little comparison testing...
left arm is Michael Kors for men and John Varvatos Vintage. I had assumed both had a dried fruity side, with the former adding tobacco and the latter, leather. Both turned out to be nice. I forgot how sweet and candied the fruit is in the Varvatos and how dry and almost sharp the Kors is. Both somewhat generic but decent and quite cheap price-wise.
right arm is Tom Ford Tuscan Leather and Extreme. I had assumed both were leathers with the former having more herbal tones and sharp smoke with the latter having a fruitier, slightly powdery side. TL has monster projection but after a few minutes I still think that the Extreme is a more refined version and highly recommend it.
