Sorry I haven't been so active lately It feels like I'm in between 2 places. I haven't been visiting the Just Starting Out cause I've pretty much nailed down what I like.. but I don't feel like I have enough experience to post in the main Fragrance Discussion. Oh well..
In other news I received my samples of Dolce & Gabanna - By Man, Viktor & Rolf - Antidote, and Narciso Rodriguez for Him. I gave them a quick try last night and they all seemed really good except for Narciso
