Here’s a excellent guest post by Madeleine on Australian Perfume Junkies. My personal favourites:
If you really love Biragade Concentree but don’t feel like springing $250 for it, go with Cartier’s Declaration. Both are by Jean Claude Ellena and both have similar heart notes. Biragade Concentree has a fresher opening and a little shorter longevity than Declaration. Great fragrance nevertheless.
I would add to the list Vetiver Extraordinaire – crisp clean vetiver, similar to Tom Ford’s Grey Vetiver, with tons of sophistication. It could be a great gift for any man in the family between 16 and 56.
Now, I’m off to forward this list to all my friends and family and cross my fingers someone would get the hint what I’d love to get for Christmas.
Big thanks to Madelein and Portia for putting up this selection.
