    No, but what I've heard hasn't been strong. I think Dane reviewed a few of them on peredepierre.

    Rochas Man today, rather like this one. With the weather warming up I'm thinking of picking up a light aquatic that you guys love so much. Any recs?

    Aramis New West, or maybe YSL Live Jazz or Kouros Cologne Sport.

    Today though, I have a cold and went with something that should cut through the phlegm: Chanel Antaeus

    I feel ambivalent towards reflection.

    After one wear, I'd probably say the same. For the retail price of this one, I feel that it should blow you away on all fronts. And while it is one of the most unique scents I've ever smelled, I can't say that I was immediately taken by it.

    It's intriguing to be sure, and it makes me want to wear it again to try to figure it out more, but it just lacked a "killer" nature to it, as apparently Jubliation XXV has (according to reviews I've read/watched/gathered). Something that just captures you and leaves you enthralled.

    Upon smelling it for the first time, the pepper in it struck me most quickly. Not in a put-offish way, but definitely a nostril burner if you're not expecting it. I could also pick up some powdery florals (most likely jasmine/orchid). At application, the neroli and bitter orange came out a bit more - moreso than just smelling it from the bottle. About 30 minutes in, I also got a phase of the scent where it smelled like "blackened Dr. Pepper", the best way I can describe it. It projected it's top and middle notes very well for about 5 hours before it began to settle down into the sandalwood and vetiver (the two listed base notes that I could most easily identify). It definitely gets sweeter as it goes along, but never approaches Creed-sweetness ( which is the only other niche brand with which I've had experience).

    I think it's an intriguing scent, and I want to wear it again. For sure, it's not a day-to-day sort of deal, so I think my 30mL split will suit its nature nicely. I enjoy it, but just wish it possessed that "capture you" trait I had originally anticipated.

    Bois du Portugal today. I haven't worn this in awhile and it will be interesting to see if my opinion of BdP changes now that I have been wearing Tuscon Leather.

    ok so I am wearing Tuscan Leather today and I don't know if I'm sickened or pleased but I can still smell Guerlain L'Instant Homme on my arms from yesterday. its certainly a weird combination.

    Having tried both myself, I think I personally lean towards BdP...

    I've been happily wearing BdP all day, but I'd have to say TL is a richer scent. I am wearing BdP at work but I don't think I'd wear TL. on the other hand TL has become my default Going Out At Night frag. I'm keeping both in the arsenal.
