I think it does have a few things in common with Alien Essence Absolue, which is quite classy to me.Similar feeling, but worlds apart if you know what I mean.I must agree as I have received numerous compliments today during the first 4hrs of wearing, it starts to come closer after that.I don't get that scent cloud at the moment but I am still at my desk at work. This is a nice classy, somewhat powdery (not much) and dry scent. I like it well enough that I think I may buy a backup. This has heavy sillage/projection for the first 2 hours, moderate at 4, closer after.Cartier’s Baiser du Dragon (the Dragon’s Kiss) is a dangerous and powerful scent.
After some time, I get cedar and some very faint florals.This current version is very woody with much stronger vetiver and cedar notes.The floral notes are much more understated, hidden, almost non existent.A 'You know me and you don't' type of deal whereas LBd D is based around recognizable 'orientalism', much like Coco was.Not really comparable to anything else رائحة قشر اللوز الغبارية مع رائحة الفيتفير الارضية اعطت للعطر رائحة باودرية تقريباً تليق به كعطرٍ نسائي ..
