Allure Homme Blanche is really good imo, can get it cheap too. Perhaps a bit too designer fragrance for this thread but I rate it.

Thanks for the heads up Toin

In my order I received a sample of the Cacao Prive. Smells wonderful; great projection from just two sprays and seems very long lasting

Forgot about this! I get the BR540 but none of the Aventus. If you like the BR then could be of interest but I think there are a few replications/alternatives out there. I'll give it another go in a couple of weeks as I read Alexandria stuff has to settle, but I'm guessing mine already has as it's a 5ml decant.

1981x and Royal Equestrian didn't do it for me either. Both muskier/heavier than I like (Royal Equest not good performance either) and reminiscent of xmas variety frag gift sets.

On my second bottle of L'Air du Désert Marocain. It's a masterpiece, in my opinion. I would never wear it to the office, but it's perfect for a night out (a luxury we might not have for a while).

I have miniatures of Au Coeur du Désert (also amazing), Les Années 25, which are quite similar to LdDM, along with L'Air des Alpes Suisses, which is the least 'Tauer' fragrance I've tried; very light and airy with no spice.

For people on the liking Eden perfumes and Mandarino Di Amalfi Venn diagram, they’ve apparently got the formulation done, just waiting on things to be less mad ingredients ordering wise.
