    I should add that Turin's description of Must de Cartier in the Guide is right on the money. It really is the perfume equivalent of the chocolate from the assortment box that nobody wants. For Turin that's a bad thing, but I find it lots of fun!

    It is right on the money, but when it concerns this scent and Chanel Pour Monsieur, fuck him.

    Wait, you love Chanel PM, don't you? He calls it the reference masculine fragrance and gives it five stars.

    Today, No. 19 edt
    Based on your descriptions and Turin's, I'll steer clear of Must. Right now, I'm thinking Jicky is probably my next purchase

    Sorry, P.M. Concentree - the one star.

    Yeah, you and Rach both like it a bunch. In retrospect, that was probably what I sampled at the Chanel boutique all those years ago where I didn't really go for it, but realized I had sniffed my arm maybe a dozen times on the drive home. After that realization I bought a bottle of the original and it was on.

    Turin also one-stars Platinum Egoiste which I think is far better than he lets on.

    ...

    Today, old Guerlain Vetiver, with the prominent tobacco notes.

    I'm coming to appreciate the Chanel feminines more and more lately, but I'm still not a big fan of No. 19 edt. It's a very good fragrance, but just a bit too green for my tastes. Jicky, on the other hand, is wonderful! Which concentration are you planning to buy?
    Must de Cartier is just one of those scents that it's fun to have in my collection. It's certainly not going to become my signature scent or anything.



    Which do you prefer, PM or PM Concentree? I've never tried the latter. The regular PM I like very much, but for whatever reason it doesn't make it into my rotation very often.

    I'm in Chanel Gardenia today. Turin gives that one star too!

    I prefer the Concentree, but what do I know!

    My wife loves the Exclusifs perfume Beige, and Turin gives it one star, maybe two.

    I like Eau d'Hadrien a lot - it's a lovely citrus scent that maintains those citrus notes for quite a while. I'm pretty sure that it is a single unisex perfume. I've used Nuits d'Hadrien for years now and find it more universal in its usage in both warm and cold conditions. Nuits has that citrus but is fortified by a little spice, particularly to my nose black pepper.

    There is Eau d'Hadrien pour homme and pour femme, no? Or are they just different flakons?
    I liked them both. Have only worn them once but I prefer Nuits d'Hadrien, too.

    the listed notes are the same, but the pour homme version has one sentence added to the description: "Une fragrance universelle pour les amoureux de l'intemporel qui évoque la fraîcheur des agrumes à l'ombre d'un citronnier..." :satisfied:

    :happy:

    Oddly enough, Eau d'Hadrien pour Homme and pour Femme are the very same fragrance. Only the bottles are different.

    Oh, dang, lol.

    Is this the case with all the fragrances from AG? I guess this one is, as HORNS pointed out, simply unisex and because she/they don't have unisex bottlings, they simply sell it for both -- in homme/femme flakons. I figure other scents are different in the homme/femme version. Femme is 93€, homme 85€ -- different flakons, different price.
