Today I blind-picked my 7th sample at random from the 12 I ordered. Based on the spicy notes I guessed Bentley for Men Absolute, in reality it was Prada Amber Pour Homme Intense.

This sinks my accuracy rate to 3/7, below 50% which I'm not pleased about (still far above random chance though). I think the online notes were pretty inaccurate. The accurate part is the myrrh, which is by far the most prominent and defining thing about this fragrance. Labeling it as a warm spicy and amber fragrance doesn't seem accurate to me though, it's not sweet enough to qualify for those labels imo. I can perceive the bergamot now that it's pointed out but other listed notes like saffron I don't notice at all.

Personally I'd describe it as a myrrh incense fragrance with bergamot zest and some fresh spice.

It's unique and luxurious but the wearability is low and I find some aspects of it unpleasant so I won't be getting a full bottle.
