    Wow! How many sprays do you use, and how often do you re-apply?!
  88. Re: what is your "You Will Notice Me!" niche fragrance?

    Domenico Caraceni 1913, by far and for sure. I absolutely love that scent, and I think others do too.

    Re: mint.

    Holy crap, I can't believe nobody has suggested "Menthe Fraiche" by Heeley. Absolutely perfect mint scent. I'll second CdG#5's Sherbert: Peppermint. Great layering fragrance.

    Sticky: Re: Which scent get's you the most female compliments?

    I agree with Tanto, but "too much" is subjective, and based largely on your skin. For example, I wear a spray on the inside of each wrist, one on the base of the neck where the collar bones meet, and...

    Re: The darkest most powerful mainstream scent

    I'm going to go ahead and through Domenico Caraceni 1913 out there. Not mainstream by any measure, but very dark, rich, and powerful. Immensely complex and beautiful at the same time.

    Re: Zegna Z Fresh

    I have not tried it yet, but I'm planning on going to Sephora today or tomorrow, and I think they had a bottle of it... I'll let you know if it's the one I saw there :)

    Re: Looking for: daily summer wear

    Le Male summer isn't so great, it's a watered-down version of the original. There's much better summer-edition scents, like Very Irresistible Fresh Attitude Summer Cocktail. What a mouthful! But it's...

    Re: "summer edition" scents

    Yeah I wasn't so fond of Le Male Summer. It smelled like a watered-down version of the original, which is stifling in the summer.

    I tried to find M7 Fresh but they don't have any of those where I...

    "summer edition" scents

    So I've been trying out the scents that some of you recommended to me in the previous thread, and none of them really stood out to me until my friend Rich came up to me and said here, try this, and...

    crisp and fresh scent

    Dearest basenoters,

    It's been quite a while since I've been here! It's good to see those of you who are still active as ever -- and now, it is time to test the depths of your knowledges once again...

    BK similarities?

    Dear friends,

    I just sampled BK again for the fourth time (hey, I like to keep an open mind!) and I still don't like it. It's too flat, it needs some spice and less synthetic sweetness. To me,...

    Re: UJEM vs. Miller et Bertaux #3

    I'm glad I'm hearing all of this feedback. UJSLN lasts no less than 10 hours on me (we're talking about people still being able to smell it as they walk by me), and so I was hoping that the...

    Re: UJEM vs. Miller et Bertaux #3

    I ordered a bottle of UJEM. I heard a lot of positive feedback about it; and if it's not as green and sharp as I like MeB#3 to be, then oh well. I liked Terre d'Hermes, but ended up ordering UJSLN,...
