    Re: Dua Fragrance, any thought?

    lol Paulie def doesn't work for Dua. My biggest issue is the fact they never responded to that oil video with the same phone number as Dua (and the same dude at Dua) that showed oils being sold for...

    Re: Dua Fragrance, any thought?

    For what it's worth, it's been over 3 weeks since I got Poseidon's Elixir and it smells the same as the day I received it. Closer to Cedrat Boise than Aventus (except at initial spray it's very...

    Re: Dua Fragrance, any thought?

    Extremely reasonable and well said. I'm giving Poseidon's Elixir another week to mellow and see what happens. The smell is decent (although not much like Aventus), so if longevity improves to the 5-7...

    This was my experience, as well. Initial blast smelled decent but longevity was so, so short.

    Re: Dua Fragrance, any thought?

    I'm going to try and see if this helps but I'm not sure how time in bottle will help volatility...so I'll guess that the poor longevity won't be fixed. It's only $45 but I hate wasting money on...

    Re: Dua Fragrance, any thought?

    No chance it's 50%, or even close to it. The Profumum scents I have leave a sorta oily residue for a bit. I have Poseidon's Elixir and it left the same sort of wetness that an EDC/EDT would. Insanely...

    You can get this stuff under $1.50/ml now, and for that price this is amazing juice. At $4/ml I'd never consider it. Probably my favorite in the Creed line in terms of the best combo of...

    To be fair, Norne is probably my favorite scent from the line based on my initial impressions. I just don't know when/where I'd wear it. It evokes a misty forest really well, so I could see putting...

    Re: Saint Charles Shave Sandalwood

    I will second this. Good shave products at a great price. The Sandalwood spray isn't bad, at all. Pretty linear woody, but it's very pleasant and quite cheap!

    I disagree with the tone of this but the underlying idea of just politely saying "I am good for now" works 100% of the time.

    I use a Gillette Fusion. I'm considering the safety razor route but I'm pretty sure I'll end up cleaving my neck nicely on mornings when I'm half asleep after a long night.
