Tried a lot of them. Bought Sycamore Coromandel Cuir De Russie. Tried Bois De Iles.
Sycamore -Loved it at first but then the dry down started turning me off. On me I am left with a syrupy brown sugar smell. I can't do it. The initial "dry vetiver/woods" blast is awesome but goes in another direction eventually.
Coromandel - Wild fragrance ! This one has many faces. It wasn't until the third time I tried it that I realized it was a gourmand. Think chocolate patchouli with added woods. I currently own a bottle but I must say that I am on the fence about the sweetness. Is it manly or not ? I would much rather wear it at night in a romantic setting. To me this isn't a walk around during the day scent. Maybe I am wrong..still exploring it.
Cuir De Russie - Owned it but wound up giving it away WHY ? Low sillage and poor longevity..an absolute F'ing beauty that broke my heart. Replaced it with Knize 10 and now I am happy.
Bois De Iles- Your nice standard chanel floral mix elegant and classy. It didn't seem to project much or else I probably would have gone for a bottle.
Las Esclusifs is a great line but obviously some are better made than others. If you like these sorts of fragrances you should check out the Dior version "Privee".
