    Ahh the smell of Bruce Wayne after a long night of research in the BatCave.

    Mysterious!

    Re: Portrait of a Lady... thoughts?

    So I'm wearing this now. It's... lovely, to say the least. Classy. Elegant. Like slightly smoked wood with incense and roses. I can see wearing this with a vest and tie, or another elegant night out....
  5. Re: How many years does a fragrance keep?

    :shocked:

    That long!! I figured 5 years was a farfetched reach!

    What is good storage, per say?

    Curious, because investing a few hundred on fragrances would seem silly if they didn't last for a few years.

  9. Re: What is your favorite "Santal" fragrance?

    Tried Creed OS just yesterday. Smells great, but I agree it can be a bit Big Reddish.

    Great scent though! Would love one like it, but with less big red!
  10. Re: I never understood "fecal notes" in a fragrance until I tried Rive Gauche.

    What's the appeal of GIT?

    Invasion Barbare. Smells so versatile and safe that I ended up NOT buying it.

  22. Which fragrance has your favorite blend of smoke AND fruit?

    I get that Aventus holds the most-loved/most-hated of this category, but what fragrance has your favorite combination of smoke and fruit?

    Dangit! It just doesn't project on me! Must be my body chemistry, because this is my fourth day and it' just not pushing out nor is it lasting like the Ramon Monegals!
  40. Re: I tried Clive Christian X for men, and it smells delicious, but is too weak. Any similar perfume

    To be honest, the cedar reminds me of guinea-pig cage wood chips.

    I smell like my pet guinea pig. But a sexy, manly, regal version.

  45. Re: I tried Clive Christian X for men, and it smells delicious, but is too weak. Any similar perfume

    So far so good, even about 7 hours out. The projection really isn't what I want it at. I'm not looking for intrusive and oppressive, but definitely something that requires more than hugging vicinity.

  48. Re: I tried Clive Christian X for men, and it smells delicious, but is too weak. Any similar perfume
