  1. Re: Everyday compliment getter for teen?

    Y EDP is great, IMO. And definitely better than Sauvage.
  2. Re: Which Fragrance Are You Currently Waiting To Be Delivered In The Mail?

    I bid and won on a 4.2 oz. bottle of Michael for Men by Michael Kors
  3. Re: Halston Z-14, is it me or I can't smell it on me after 30min??

    The last time I sampled it, it was potent and lasted a while. But the quality doesn't seem to be what it once was. The longevity still seems strong, from the times I've tried it.
  4. Re: Michael For Men by Michael Kors - Does anyone still wear this?

    I went ahead a bought 4.2 oz of Michael on ebay. Based on the photo, its still pretty full. Seller said he only used10 sprays of it. Fingers crossed.

  6. Re: Spotted at Marshalls, TJ Maxx, Ross, etc. Vol. 3

    Are you ready for this?.....I saw a bottle of Beverly Hills 90210 eau de toillette for men at TJ Maxx. Who knew.
  7. Re: Name a scent that smells even better when you overspray it

    I would never have thought that two or three extra sprays would make a scent better than two sprays of the same scent. Maybe only because you can smell it better because there's more of it.

    Re: Polo 50th anniversary edition.

    It's been ripped off and copied so many times. Those are laughable, I think, but the RL POLO logo is classic.
  9. Re: Why is there so much hate for Grey Flannel?

    Shlorpy, don't put Grey Flannel in the same camp as POLO. GF is, at least in its current formulation, total crap. Just my opinion, of course. But I, too, have no idea why some people praise GF.
  10. Re: Do you prefer having one signature fragrance or having a small collection to choose from?

    POLO is my signature, as I wear it about 4 or 5 times a week. But I like to have a variety so I can change things up from time to time.
