Hey, thanks for the tip! I know Dimitri really loves CN scents, but I've never smelled any of them. I was definitely curious. If this is even CLOSE to CdG 2MAN, then I'm totally there! Your description sounds great. I will definitely begin seeking this out in earnest. Thanks VERY MUCH for the heads-up!
Hey Red! I know you're a fan of Comme des Garcons 2 man, which is a sort of incense frag, and I just got done with my second wearing of Costume National's 21. Not sure if you've tried it or not, but WOW! It opens a little sweet, a little spicy, a little fruity, and a little creamy. It dries down to a sort of soft incense (which you can detect from the beginning) and woods. It's so well done! There's no way this ISN'T going on my to buy list. Just thought I'd give you a heads up on its amazingness!
Ohh well THAT'S good ! And you're welcome!!
Hey, Tim! Good to hear from you. Yeah, I got sidetracked by geek stuff. Thankfully, I've had some time to get back to fragrance a bit here. Very enjoyable, too! We'll see if it sticks. I'm hoping that my fellow geeks have things under control - or at least enough that I can get more frag time in. Let's hope so! In any case, thanks for the welcome back! -Red
Hey Red! I hope all is well with you. I haven't seen you around that much! Well anywho, keep it real and keep it fragrant
Hahaa ain't it the truth! I could do a better job than damn near all of the SA's I've dealt with. "What are you trying to find? Musky, amber? Well.. I REALLY like Black by Kenneth Cole.. it smells so good" I'm happy I'm not the only one about L'Homme!! It seems everyone mentions so many YSL scents and how good they are.. but not that one That scent sounds right up my alley! I've been trying to find a smokey scent just to get a feel of how it would be.. and yes! Anise is definitely something I try and stay away from.. I just don't like it at all haha
Yeah I was on the search for frags that were warm and sensual and maybe a bit spicy for Fall/Winter.. and I think The One would do quite nice.. or Guess by Marciano. I'm quite fond of Amber and Musky frags. I wanna try Express Reserve cause it sounds right up that alley.
Yes, definitely! Thanks for the comments/messages
I kind of suspected you were talking about that one. Well, I haven't sniffed that, either, so now I have to sniff both! Just one more fragrance to try. Not a bad thing! Thanks for setting me straight on the version - I'll try to sniff this weekend! Ciao! -Red
Haha yeah I guess i'll have to just keep it around maybe I'll end up liking it again! I should have been more specific about 212, I meant 212 on Ice haha I need to try 212 again.. the SA sprayed the sample card until it was wet and limp and all I got was a hefty dose of pepper. I of course know a LOT more about drydowns and such now so I wanna try it again. I hear so much about how many complements it gets.. but of course it comes down to whether I like it or not
