I got a small (1 oz.) bottle of Hermès Eau des Merveilles. I like Ralf Schwieger pretty much, and was curious. I have good results usually with Hermès.
I dont know why, but I was expecting this to be sweet. Not even. It's rather nice, dry: citrus and the sea. Interestingly, Bruno Fazzolari's horror movie homage, Room 237, smells nearly identical, although the listed notes are very different. Hmmmmm..... (EDIT: I asked my building manager if she thought they smelled the same. She preferred Room 237 and said it was more feminine and sweeter. Eau des Merveilles smelled masculine to her. )
I also got a bottle of Claude Montana, Montana Black Edition, which was very cheap, and smells it.
I also got a rather large (150 ml) bottle of Bvlgari Eau Parfumée au Thé Bleu, which is not nearly as nice as the Thé Rouge, which has been discontinued.
