Will be blind buying this from Harrods later on today!

Anyone try this one yet? Thoughts positive and/or negative?

Not sure about the 'praline' note, it looks like a woody-oriental-fougere in the style of Rive Gauche, but perhaps it's more like a nougere in the style of Le Male or Invasion Barbare: fougere 'plus', so to speak.

Received mine yesterday. The opening is quite aromatic with a sharp sage note softened by lavender that has nice staying power. It then becomes a bit spicy although I detect a tad of sweetness as it progresses. After about a half hour, it dries down to a nice woody base which lasted quite a long time. I found the performance for myself be excellent.

@hednic

Thanks for your first impressions on Haltane.

Do you find any similarities to Initio Oud for Greatness?
I've seen a video on Youtube where the reviewer mentioned that.

If I get a chance to try it I will post my findings here.
Currently it seems to be a Harrods Exclusive.
Carlisle was also one and now it's widely available.

Floral/aromatic top + usual sweet amberwood base. Aka: fougere 101 for (wealthy) GenZ.
Sauvage Elixir, is it you? Beau de Jour, is it you?

Sounds like an umpteenth PdM for which I won't care, but never say never, and even that one will get his chance with me.
