  1. Re: Know nothing of fragrances - buying samples on ebay (Creed).

    Definitely sample as much as you can and don't judge a fragrance by the first 15 minutes. They change a lot from start to finish. Good luck and have fun!
  2. Poll: Re: Should the mods delete posts about what a religious leader would wear?
