Have tried Le Labo Patchouli, Le Labo Vetiver, Czech and Speak 88, Le Labo Rose 31, Chanel Sycomore, Penhaligon Sartorial, Il Profume Patchouli Noir, Penhaligon Quecus and Penhaligon Elixr. Oh, and CDG Kyoto.
here is what I have and like: Acqua di Parma Colonia, Creed Green Irish Tweed and Tauer's L'Air du Desert Morocain.
To test and coming any day now: Chanel Bois des Iles, Coromandel and 31 Rue Cambron.
of those tested, I liked Sartorial but it did not last long, and then Elixir and then Sycomore (it lasted a lot). the Le Labos had the projection and long lasting and of those three, the Patchouli was the best smell.
So, I can get a great deal on a Chanel Bois des Iles. From reading, I may like it and the Coromandel. I like spice.
So, you think so? Should I buy the Bois des Iles blind?
