When you say dusty, do you mean like L'air du Desert Marocain? (I'm not partial to LDDM) I may need to seek this one out via sample before I have my SO get met a bottle for Christmas.
I don't have a lot of experience with LDDM, but I did have a sample and I really didn't like it...I tried to like it 3 different times and it never happened. There was, what I would deem as a powdery note to it, which is what you felt was dusty about it, that really turned me off to it...so, we might dislike LDDM for the same reason. The dusty sort of effect to Roam is very different than that in LDDM, so I think you would like it. I don't know if dusty is the right term for it, but it's how I would describe something being a little dusty...it's not super dusty, just a little. Do you have experience with Avignon? I consider Avignon to be a little dusty, and I feel that Roam is the same kind of dustiness. I love Avignon by the way!
A word of caution though...there are a lot of extremely popular fragrances that are mentioned a lot here on BN that I don't like at all...and there are a lot of not so popular fragrances that people either don't mention or they are unpopular because a lot of people don't like them here on BN that I really love...I just say that because just because I like it doesn't mean that it is as great as I, personally, think it is apparently. So maybe you shouldn't get your hopes up to high coming from one of my reviews. But, I like what I like and I'm ok with that. I just don't want you to get a sample and think "man was he off on this one".
