    Thanks for your opinion on He Wood Ocean Wet Wood. I tried it 3 times and feel that it stays close to the skin. Do you often get a whiff of it? How many sprays do you use? I use about 5, all on my skin.

    Oh ya lol. I still have the bottle and I can smell it a little, but there's no juice left in it. But, just being able to smell it a little invokes memories; ya know how that goes

    Thank you. I appreciate where the compliment comes from - I've been noticing your reviews with an appreciative eye.

    My favorite citruses are Acqua d Parma Colonia and Jean Marie Farina but I just accept the fact that they are not going to last. The only longer lasting citrus that I came close to loving was Bigarade Concentree (Jean-Claude Ellena) by Federic Malle, but it's been so long that I reviewed it, I can't say that I still would choose it. OH! I remember another one Tova for Men by Tova Borgnine- That one came close to the lemon drop candy note but it never completely crossed the line, if I remember right. The Eau de Rochas - both Femme and Homme - are quite good, but I personally don't think of them as citrus. I bought Acqua di Parma Colonia Absoluta and the citrus in it lasts, but I dislike the scent.

1000 Posts + My letter to Basenotes, blah blah.....

by Grottola on 24th March 2011 at 06:23 PM
Upon reaching 1000 posts today (Oh boy, I'm DEPENDENT now!! ), I'm definitely looking back at my time spent on Basenotes so far. I originally came here as a reviewer when I was 18 and simply reviewed fragrances. I was recommended to Basenotes from a men's grooming forum called MenEssentials. Anyway, time passed and by the spring of 2009 I was reviewing frequently. By that summer, I had left fragrances and Basenotes to pursue other interests.

Flash-forward to October 2010,
