I went through the set and had a similar feeling. They all felt a bit thin to me, not that they weren't strong enough but that they lacked depth and dimensionality. Some of them were interesting smells but none of them felt like I would derive a lot of pleasure from wearing them. Maybe my expectations are too high given their price point is quite reasonable, so I shouldn't expect them to hold up next to Chanel or Frederic Malle. I'm always surprised that some reviews who's taste I respect rate these highly and I wonder what they are getting that I'm missing.You said a mouthful. JSUH was my favorite ELDO.
That sums up how I feel about most ELDOs. I'm so often let down by their scent names, which promise something edgy and outlandish but then just deliver a pedestrian scent -- I Am Trash and Tom of Finland being the most prominent examples.
I'll be eager to hear what you think of Experimentum Crucis and La Fin du Monde, two I haven't heard of before.
I did think Attaquer was the best of the mainline, but it got a bit "one note" for me, and Experimentum Crucis from the higher price tier was quite nice but nothing special for a rose/patch, it just felt more deep and "expensive" than the others.
For decently priced largely synthetic/experimental perfumes I'd prefer Comme des Garcons by a mile.
