      A*Men Pure Shot : Thierry Mugler ? No f-ing way. That stuff was awful...

      I hope TF's Noir wins best new for Men -- I love that stuff.

    • andym72 | 28th March 2013 17:23

      I'm glad to see that some of my shortlist suggestions made it...

    • Francop | 29th March 2013 19:51

      Great Stuff! Thank You!

      I voted for Tolu by Ormonde Jayne in most categories; where is it?

    • Sandy | 30th March 2013 07:33

      Yesterday I gave one more chance to Aventus from my official Creed sample. After an hour I had to wash it off. How nice it is we are so different:)

    • Scentsucker | 30th March 2013 18:11

      Hey, all my choices made it into the finalist list!

    • sin_is_in | 31st March 2013 23:43

      "Best Marketing Campaign: Chanel - Inevitable" :beer:

    • PureBoy | 1st April 2013 17:53

      Agree! Completely! Pure Shot sucks!

      - - - Updated - - -

      The few ones that I voted (now on the list) are:

      - Carnal Flower

      - L'Air du Desert Marocain

      - Liberty, London (perfumery)

      OMG!

      LOL.

      ...Some hid scars and some hid scratches

      It made me wonder about their past

      And as I looked around, I began to notice

      That we were nothing like the rest...

      :confused:

      Hoping that the Brad Pitt "Inevitable" ad doesn't win.
