About this deal

The trend towards creating flankers by adding oud to a formula that wasn't designed to work with oud is not a positive in my book.

I love love love the OG and yes, this is fantastic too, but to my nose I can hardly tell them apart.One of my most complimented frags and the compliments were always over the top nothing like "you smell good. The difference that I can detect, is that the drydown stage has a more similar vibe to the pre-reformulation original CB.

This smells like a rubbery chemical raid (the lemon version) or even some off brand roach killer spray. Quiero destacar que el envío fue muy rápido, me la enviaron desde Culiacán hasta el estado de guerrero. I think this has a smoother development and is without the "burnt Aventus" stage that I found in the original. I just read through the reviews, and it seems that most people perceive this as a masculine fragrance, which surprised me, because this is way, way sweeter than anything my own husband would wear.

Maybe it needs more time to macerate, but usually that gives you a small boost in performance, not a massive 50x boost to make this at least decent lol. I bought the OG earlier on in the year and has been my go to this summer so far in the warmer months. I can't imagine that Mancera have made and developed a fragrance, that would be the same as the original one. The vanilla gives an ever so slight boost to the presence of fruits here, but in my opinion it only adds to the woodsy sensation.

The item may be missing its original packaging, or the original packaging has been opened or is no longer sealed. Other folks may not detect the oud because it was so faint and well blended with the citruses and vanilla accords. If we talk performance i can only talk about my 2018 batch of the original and it performs MUCH better than this new flanker in terms of longevity and projection. The scent profile is almost exactly the same as the OG but this one is richer, rounder, and the staying power simply fascinates me.The oud is very mild here, but any more would probably break the delicate balance that’s struck here. I’m not being a nitpick fragrance snob either, I genuinely don’t get where folks are getting the comparisons.
