  1. Re: What are you wearing for the Polar Vortex?

  2. Re: Grey Vetiver... EDT? I guess there's a new version. Anybody smelled it?

    I actually find the EDP a little thick/heavy and cloying. So, I'd love to give the EDT a try.

    I recently bought a small bottle of New York Intense and have been wearing it in the office once a week.
