  1. Seasonal fregrances

    Ok, im kind of new to the world of cologne and just learned about the different stages that cologne can have. I've been reading that certain cologne is better to wear in the winter than in the summer. why? what types of cologne are for the winter and which are for the summer? Right now i have three types of cologne: Pour Homme II by Gucci, Code by Armani, and Pi by Givenchy. What seasons would they be good for? I really like the smell of pi on me and feel like i could wear it anytime of the ...
  2. Juicy Couture

    Phew. A scrubber. It has the same stinky, sickly sweet note that I detest in a couple of other yuck-bombs. (Beyond Paradise comes to mind ) It's somewhat like a fake ginger, but I can't stay close enough to really ID the perp. Thank goodness for little cheap-o samples!

  3. L'Eau The One by Dolce & Gabbana

    Another frag I keep hearing about and originally had no plans to try...but it smelled really nice on a co-worker.

  5. Very Irresistable - Rose Centifolia 2006

    In case it isn't obvious, I ordered about a billion little sample sprays from fragrancenet...

    I was a little cautious with this due to the supposed "star anise" note. I hate licorice/anise (I'm talking the real black kind, not the fake red kind). Luckily, all I'm really getting is the rose. Rose, rose and more rose. It's a sweet rose, but nice. Since I love rose, that's OK. Maybe a little generic "white flower", a touch of musk and vanilla, but mostly just rose. ...
