    Silvestre by Victor

    I have dabbled with Pino Silvestre and Acqua Di Selva. I nearly bought Aqua Brava. I have been aware of Silvestre by Victor for a while. I thought it was discontinued but there are EDT's and AS's on eBay. The AS are obviously less expensive for a blind gamble. Has anyone tried it?

The issue is that on the right side you can push the bar a few millimetres. It's probably not noticeable to the untrained eye. Will...
