    Frederic Malle - Carnal Flower. I'm not a fan of tubereuse scents - too powdery for my taste. Drydown became a little less powdery, but still not in love with it.

    It seems as if people either really like tuberose a lot or don't like it at all. I'm in the former category.

    Serge Lutens - Arabie. Interesting scent. It took me a while to get accustomed to it, but it really is what it is supposed to be. Date, candied mandarin peel, cedar wood. Great longevity. Not my fav' but well crafted.

    I'm curious about this one because I think they smell completely different. Definitely don't get that incense note from Jub XXV at all.

    The total of two separate times I've smelled Jubilation XXV, once on blotter and once on wrist, indicted to me that it was much more complicated and gaudier compared to CDG Kyoto. I used the two different architectural styles found in Kyoto - one more Chinese influenced and overall more complex and one more elegant in its simplicity.

    Meh.

    Frederic Malle - En Passant. The lilac somehow reminds me a bit of lily. Pretty floral scent though the lilac is a little too soapy.

    Dior Homme Sport. Really nice sporty scent. It's rare I enjoy a scent like this.

    So, I've got a bottle of Precious Oud by Van Cleef & Arpels, but the discussions on Basenotes are correct, it does smell just like Tom Ford's Black Orchid :plain:
