I received my sample set and I’m not kidding, upon spraying this on the paper I immediately despised it. After applying all the scents to the papers, this was far and away my least favorite and I figured I’d never bother trying it on lest someone have the unfortunate experience of smelling me.
But that was before COVID-19. Since I’m not going anywhere, I figured I’d try them all on different days, and I finally got to this one. I can’t say it’s my new favorite, but I am genuinely impressed with what a difference is made by adding this scent to skin. It’s no longer the stale smell of grandma masking her lack of shower by too much cloying “rose artificielle”, instead I pick up the sweetly fruity lynchee and the blooming rose garden. It’s quite extraordinary, but you must love musks.
I recently ordered the 20-fragrance sample, based largely on the cheeky names given to many of them (Fat Electrician, anyone? HA!). After a fairly exhaustive testing session, I came away with 3-4 that I really liked (though many were rather special and told me a unique story, just not all were something I'd personally want to wear), and Experimentum Crucis topped the list. It is so fresh and clean and unique, I simply cannot get enough. I haven't received any comments on it yet, but I don't mind that, as it feels like something just for me. Every time I roll over in the middle of the night and get a whiff of it from my pillow, and I smile and sigh in my sleep. My only wish is that this was available in various sizes like most other; $225 is just a bit cost-prohibitive for my budget, even for this incredible scent. Until (or unless) this is available in a more economical size, I'll just keep ordering 10 samples at a time!
Just got a sample of this and sprayed it (while at work) and shortly after a guy walked into my office and commented it smells like "fresh laundry". Seeing how long it lingers but so far it's exceptional.
Got a sample of this and its love st first spray. A unique scent and last long on me. I'm definitely will purchased.
