    Sticky: Re: Which scent gets you the most female compliments?

    Walked into class, passing a couple of girls to get to my seat, I heard a faint "dang he smells good" (not a direct compliment, but I'll take it as one!)
    I was wearing Virgin Island Water, which is...

    Re: Has Amazon stopped selling Creeds

    How is the bottle of BdP? Fragrancenet doesn't carry it (at least for the season) and I'm planning on buying a bottle late summer/early fall. If it's good who was the seller?

  98. Re: Bleu de Chanel or Dior homme or Aqua di Parma intensa

    I just looked it up on fragrantica to view the notes and it sure does look different! Colonia is definitely lemon based, where as this seems to have a lot more going on. I would actually love to give...

    I've tried Colonia, unfortunately haven't had the pleasure to smell the intense version.

    For summer I would suggest Virgin Island Water from Creed.. Ever since I bought myself a bottle of this liquid gold I can't stop praising it. Easily one of my favorite scents that I own (exclusively...
