Just like you I started my collection with as many inexpensive frags I could get my hands on. After about 120 bottles, I discovered that most fragrances are just copies of each other, and the more I sampled the more I understaood what a quality fragrance is. CK One summer 07 is not bad, but its not great either. However, it will be a good 'gateway' frags to citrus aquatics. My strategy is to buy at least one frag from each fragrance company, this guarantees maximum exposure to as many frag styles as possible. Try the following inexpensive but good 'gateway' frags:
Hey Andrew! I just recently started up my cologne collection. I really appreciate your reviews and have found them very helpful and I think we have pretty similar tastes. So I am in need of your opinion. Currently my favorites are Sunset Heat, Slate, PH Just Me, and Reaction. I'm really into fresh, light scents that smell really good. I am wondering what you think about CK summer 2007 and Halston Unbound. I can get them both for pretty cheap. Also if there are any others that you can suggest. Thanks.
No prob, anytime.
thank u so much
I love both of those notes ......... I'll look for those fragrances
I honestly appriciate your help
Stalker, I know what you mean, Givenchy ph doesn't last much on my body either. I fix the problem by applying a lot (about 10 to 12 sprays). Even if you can no longer smell it on your body, trust that others can. I find that Gph changes depending on the weather also.
But...if you want to try something else, it depends on what aspect of Gph you are attracted to. For me, it is the woodiness, almost smells like cedar shoe trees. if that is waht you like then definately try Paul Smith london in the dark brown round pointy bottle. It is a very woody frag, unrelenting, and it lasts forever. If you like the other aspect of Gph, the fresh almot aquatic frag, the go with the Blue Label version of Givenchy ph...same bottle, but blue instead of red plastic. Good luck...let me know what you do.
Hi Andrew ............. I'm looking for your help
I love Givenchy Pour Homme so much but it doesn't last well on my skin niether the sillage is strong enough
Any recommendation of some fragrances that smell the same like Givenchy Pour Homme with much better longivity and sillage? ..... Thank you
Tanto, wow, thanks so much for such encouraging words. I do agree with you about some reviewers...'spoiled' is a good way of describing such indeed, not everyone can afford or have the desire to spend so much on the niche fragrances. I haven't done much reviewing lately, though I have tested quite a lot of juices recently. Let me know if there is/are any specific ones you want my opinion on, I will certainly oblige. Thanks again. Cheers.
You wrote such a nice review for Jaguar Perormance. I too, like the fragrance. Some of these people are so critical about the fragrances and write such horrible reviews about them. They seem like such "spoiled" people. Sir, I always look for your reviews before I buy anything. You're always "on track". Thanks for being so honest an non-exaggerated, too. Best regards.....Tanto
I live not too far from Cologn (Koln) and I simply go to the house of Farina and buy it. I can sell you a bottle. PM sent.
