It's like they put all the emphasis into giving you "love at first sniff" while not caring much where you finish. For $225, yes, you want a happy ending.
I'm pretty close to where you are on this one. I'd say I'm at like it a lot but not love.
Today I'm wearing TF Noir de Noir. This is also a rose/oud scent, but it's much richer and less aggressive, with a dark chocolatey vibe. I enjoy this quite a bit on my skin, but what I really love is when I come back to my office after having been away for a bit and smelling it in the air. I think it sometimes requires distance like that to get a proper perspective on a fragrance.
