Hi all, I recently purchase and have tired Pinaud Lilac Vegetal "Aftershave" and quite like this Splash. Almost immediately upon first wearing, it reminded me (in some respects) of one of my VERY favorite (also French) Cologne EdT which is not only one of my TOP 10 Fragrances due to it's wonderful uniqueness but, also due to it's very reasonable price! I am speaking of The House of CARON and the Fragrance I speak of is none other than "YATAGAN". Yatagan (like Pinaud Lilac Vegetal) is no doubt a somewhat acquired taste. I fully admit (being known at Basenotes.net since 2003) for my love of (what some would call) rather weird/unique/off beat/strange/stinky/odd/rank/challenging/daring/etc. taste in Fragrances. I LOVE these unique/different types of Fragrances and the bulk of my Fragrance collection reflects these type of Scents. At any rate, should your taste in Fragrances be somewhat adventurous, give CARON "YATAGAN" a try! (you can thank me later). SixCats!
