    For those of you lucky enough to have the cash to buy this scent please advise, should I buy a bottle?

    Hi there; Tigerlust is available as 9.5 ml tester. This way you have plenty of a perfume tzo try before making the decision if you really want / need a full bottle. I bought the EO No.1 and 2 this way. 9,5 ml is really A LOT of perfume...lasts several weeks, even when you apply it daily.

    To answer the question in the title of this post, Yes, I have tried it, no surprise there =)

    I'd second @Thomas S. on that, always good to Test a composition for yourself first, and to answer a straight yes or no on whether to buy a bottle would depend on other things as well, and the first question that came to mind is: Have you experienced EO No 1 and No 2?

    You're here, so I know you appreciate oud and that says a lot, but there still remains a question of your preferences in terms of scent profiles, and what you enjoy. So how do you like EO No 1 and No 2 can better help us answer how you'd like TIGERLUST.

    Hello Adam

    Yes, you have sold me a tester of number 1 which I apologise but I'm not a big fan of.

    I dislike the dry down and feel there is something grizzly under the surface. I'm thinking this may be Oak Moss

    I love your Iris Noir and adore Thai Tabac (you'll probably guess who I am now) and I love Russian Adam Malik D' Taif scent.

    Unfortunately I've not tried number 2 but like Blue Kalabar.

    Many thanks
    Simon

    Hi @ShimonofBrixton , no need to apologize you're entitled to your opinion =)

    The raw grizzly aspect of the dry-down and its bold stance appeals to many lovers of the Leather genre, imparting a vintage 'old world' feel to the fragrance, as many have observed, and appreciated; which is in part what makes it so regal.

    Iris Noir and Thai Tabac are both brighter profiles, brighter than EO No 1. Just yesterday however the following was said about TIGERLUST by a client in the US:

    "If I was going to describe it in one sentence....Tropical flowers wrapped up in a cashmere blanket of oud and musk. Smooth, balanced, and blended to perfection." Scott, USA

    Those tropical flowers he's referring to is that ooozing osmanthus eluded to in the description, which is to my perception the key ingredient within Iris Noir. Although rather than deriving the dry-down from a root aromatic as in Iris Noir, TIGERLUST has musk rounding it off.

    As for Malik d'Taif, if that's a profile you enjoy definitely put Sultan Rose Attar on your list as the classic combination has never been better.

    All and all TIGERLUST is nowhere near as bright as Blue Kalbar or as floral as Thai Tabac's violet, for comparisons sake, think of the tone of Iris Noir, but heighten the nuances and complexity 3 fold.

    Given that TIGERLUST is even more complex and sophisticated than EO No 1 and also has that Regal old worth tone both bold and uncompromising, my suggestion to you considering your feelings on EO No 1 is to put the $149 towards Sultan Rose Attar, or another bottle of Blue Kalbar (while it's around.)

    Looking at TIGERLUST as an independent fragrance and as a unique composition, it's almost too rich.

    There's a limit which our senses can perceive at once, and I think TIGERLUST surpasses it.

    It's the kind of fragrance that I'll still be picking out new facets from it a year from now. And I'll need a full year to really experience all that is packed into it.

    It's very complex, powerful and sophisticated and definitely has elements of the unmistakable Ensar Oud signature notes.

    I also believe the overall profile will be dynamic because of the quality of the aromatics within and that the differences it'll exude from month to month and season to season will make it quite an experience.

    This is a serious fragrance that makes a formidable signature scent.
