Takes everything I love about the original and removes the screechy fruitiness, instead focusing more on the spices and leather with a nice, dark, woodiness. One thing to note: this fragrance is labeled as an 'extrait de parfum', however, on the bottom of the bottle it reads as 'eau de parfum'.

That said, generally speaking, the higher the concentration the greater the longevity and usually the lesser the projection (staying closer to the skin), all else being equal. This is the main reason why people think most of the Mancera fragrances got reformulated into weaker versions, in reality, they just switched sprayers. The performance it's enormous, it's lasting easily 10+ hours and projecting for 3 minimum, niche performance for sure. The oud note in this fragrance is not fecal or offensive, as some oud fragrances can be, but rather adds a woody and smoky dimension to the scent that perfectly complements the other notes. Very strong opening that settles into what i only can describe as the old dior cologne mixed with the old dior homme.

Shame this doesn't smell nice on me, but if you enjoy wearing leather fragrances this is absolutely worth a try. I’m not being a nitpick fragrance snob either, I genuinely don’t get where folks are getting the comparisons. The oud smells like a typical Mancera-style oud, which is still pleasant enough for those of you who don't like a more intense oud note in fragrances. CB Intense is more animalic, less fruity, creamier from sandalwood and vanilla, more woody, low projection and moderate longevity.

Smelling like pine needles is not attractive to me, but luckily the fragrance quickly transitions to the early mid where it smells like cigarettes, birch, and woods. EDIT: OK, I wore it today, 6-7 sprays is pretty heavy and I'm on my 13th hour, rubbing my neck still can smell it on my hand, well 4-5 sprays should be just fine from now on.Since that time, I have wondered if I just developed anosmia since other people continue to smell and admire the juice hours after I no longer do. Take Cedrat Boise eau de parfum, for example; this lively aroma is infused with notes of bergamot and lemon from Sicilia, alongside blackcurrant and cold winter spices. On first spray I get a burst of mild citrusy black currant but soon it turns into sexy and seductive sandalwood and oud type of fragrance. Please read the full reviews and consider your own needs and preferences before making a purchasing decision. If you just "like" the original, then this may be redundant for you since the scent profile is almost exactly the same.

It also lasts very long, which i also didnt think because i just went nose blind in the first 10 minutes of wearing it (thats the reason im rewriting my review). if 45% concentration dies after MINUTES of being on my skin and has zero projection, how has this been hyped so much? Established by French parfumeur, Pierre Montale, in 2008, Mancera is considered a luxury niche brand.I have some samples of CBI and i really love this scent, too bad i can't afford the full bottle so i use to layer it with macerated CDNIM EDP (which i got huge 200 ml bottle) and i get a great mix of aventus/CBI, you should try it! Someone I know was shocked that I sprayed that much as they are 2 sprays max and wouldn’t reapply for the rest of the day. I'd say the leather in the dry down is a couple of notches lower than a leather fragrance such ombre leather, but it's there.
