I agree it's challenging but I think it's for me more in the way that Dries van noten par frederic malle is challenging -- it can easily get annoying. MKK to me the problem I have is that it's almost too sweet in a weird way, like it tends to give me headaches and make me feel spaced out. But sure it is animalic, but I think montale cuir d'arabie is several notches beyond as far as that. But the MKK I used was from like 2015 or so.Muscs Koublai Khan is the most challenging fragrance I've ever smelled. It smells like Serge Lutens' balls. Sorry but it is true. The basenotes are more challenging than planning a trip to the moon.

I think that heavy animalics, ouds, and certain blends based around leather, tobacco, or any "unusual" notes tend to be challenging to most of the general public.
I'm going to define this as scents that it appears a majority of people on BN like/think are quality or even excellent scents, that I have trouble finding why....Penhaligon's Hammam Bouquet...But a lot of people love it and describe things I don't seem to find so far....
Goutal Sables - have vintage... maybe should sell it!!! ... Whatever it does smell like, feel like people 15 feet away are running away.... just can't wear this in public yet.
Do you wear it outside? Total respect if so.
I clumsily spilt some of this over the sample vial while trying it around six months ago and then, shocked, put it in my big glass jar of samples. That jar still stinks of it to this day.
