Thanks Duke and also thanks to the others interested in my opinion. Unfortunately the shop that carries LM in my area has not received its stock yet…ARRRGHH!
Glad to hear you like it.Fantastic scent, just got my split. Reminds me a lot of their other offering, Black Oud, but with lots of leather. That opening skank I've been reading about is beautiful and never off-putting to me. The skank of HL is unlike others that I've smelled like MKK. The projection... not that great. The longevity is great. As much as I'm enjoying this, I don't know if I would spend what their asking for it since it's performance is just not there. At 225 (their other extraits) I would absolutely get this, definitely worth it. But at 340... no. Not to mention, I have Black Oud and they are close cousins. Have to see if it's something that I absolutely need once my decant is gone.
One of my dogs annoyingly chewed my Black Oud sample just after it arrived but HL appears more complex to me.
It certainly performs better than many others I've tried recently.
In view of the price, I don't understand why they market it in 100ml bottles 'though as a lot of people seem to be using smaller sizes now which may encourage more sales.
Thx Rouj...just checked out his many splits - by many i mean MANY. I saw that he just processed a batch. Well maybe next.
Palm beach is THE best splitter. His split bottles look so good you don't even need a full bottle. His labeling is by far the best I have come across. He really puts a lot of effort into it. Don't sleep on hard leather either. I wore it to work yesterday and loved it. It's def growing on me.
You're welcome. I got my split from him, it's an AMAZING scent. Earlier I said I liked it, having worn it twice more and sprayed a female friend as well to get the observers perspective, I can say it's truly amazing. The leather is like no other I've worn (I own M, Leather Oud, and several others), much dirtier and less refined. Then there's the booziness, which lasts through the first two phases. It is exactly what I was looking for and didn't even realize it. It's very rich, not sure if it's a scent that I can wear everyday. But much like it's brother Black Oud, I've been wanting to return to it over and over.
Next time it pops up in a split don't miss out.
