    Re: What to wear on first dates

    My wife is 30 and she hated TDH at first blush, and I think she only tolerates it now. I would definitely not recommend TDH. Out of your current wardrobe, Chanel Allure Homme is great. As to other...

    Re: Channel: Platinum Egoiste

    This is me, but with one switch. I wear PE to work, Bleu as a day scent, and Allure Homme as my night fragrance.
  3. Re: Which fragrance smells the CLOSEST to Curve by Liz Claiborne?

    Curve bears some resemblance to Chanel Platinum Egoiste (and, in turn, Mont Blanc Legend) but Curve is far cheaper. You'd probably be better off purchasing Curve from someone overseas and having it...

    Agreed that the dry down is very nice, particularly once the mint fades into the background. But I think that's the trouble I'm having with it. I don't like the mint note, and it stays prevalent a...

    Need your expert guidance.

    Hey all,

    I did a lot of designer sampling this weekend in an attempt to find another good office scent for the wardrobe. Here are some conclusions I've reached, with a question to follow:

    In the Tampa, FL area I would say that fragrances in general aren't that commonly worn. Here in the office I occasionally smell some aquatic or another. Out and about in the evening I pick up lots...

    Re: Bleu de Chanel - how does it wear on you?

    I get grapefruit out of the gate for the first 10 minutes or so, followed by a dark incense/patchouli/vetiver composition for the remainder of the day. It's weird ... sometimes the vetiver is very...

    Chanel Platinum Egoiste would fit your description. Also Tom Ford Grey Vetiver.

  12. Re: Anyone else worried about bothering people with Tobacco Vanille?

    I'm half joking. I'm sure lots of fragrances could give you a headache if you loaded up on them in excess. I'm sure I'll give it a try one day.
  13. Re: Anyone else worried about bothering people with Tobacco Vanille?

    The only fragrance that ever induced a migraine for me is Azzaro Chrome. Now I know to avoid TV. We should start a new thread ... "migraine inducers."

    I'd second Allure Homme. Very different fragrance from Allure Homme Sport. Has a fall/winter vibe to it (although you could definitely wear it year round).

    Re: Help for a new male fragrance :)

    I also quite regularly wear Bvlgari Pour Homme. One that I think has a similar vibe is Versace Man Eau Fraiche. And you can get this one fairly cheap.
  24. Re: What's the most annoying, screechy, metallic(?), synthetic smelling frag you know of?

    +6 for Chrome. Ugh I can't STAND it. What a mess. I wore it one day and had a raging headache by the end of the day.

    And yet it does manage to get compliments.

    This was EXACTLY my experience with it as well. Underwhelmed on the test strip, but once I wore it for a while, the vetiver came FLYING out of it. For me, this is the smoothest vetiver scent I can...
  31. Re: I am smelling a huge ginger frag among the crowd. Which scent can be?

    I'd also guess YSL L'Homme. That is typically my go-to fragrance on a summer evening out. If I'm wearing it, I'm sure others are too. Has a powdery sweet ginger drydown.
