Bottega Veneta PH, Frank LA #2 and Drakkar Essence. Merry Christmas everyone!!!
Enjoy! My wife used to love the original on me many years ago. Merry Christmas! I'd love to have the new version.
I'm wearing the new Cuiron today from a sample. Very faithful to the original and good longevity, Not as zesty or fizzy as the original, it's a little flatter. Still smells very nice. IMHO it's a $75...
Thanks for the kudos guys, but remember these are all just 5% to 10% full each (except for Gucci at about 25% full and Le Male about 15% full). I just cleaned up all the bottles and peeled off all...
You better like Vetiver.....
The new Lang Cuiron today...maybe Montale Black Oud on Christmas Day.
Merry Christmas to all!!!
No cigars for me! It would overpower my cologne! Sorry to see your store close, Jon!
The new Cuiron from a sample spray today.
I've received Frank LA #2 and Bottega Veneta from my wife and kids. My Mom and Dad are giving me Drakkar Essence. So I'm doing alright!
I bought Coco Mademoiselle for my wife. Bought Polo Red...
I love Bond, but Wall Street is awful. And to think, it was my first Bond!!!
Yeah, I figure I can get at least 10 or so wears out of each bottle I bought. So $5.98 is not too shabby!
I stopped at JR's Factory Outlet today where they are going out of business near Charlotte. I got several tester bottles, all about 5% to 10% full. Among them:
Gucci Pour Homme I
Yeah, I feel real sorry for you and your Panerai! Love those! Out of my league, though. Congrats! I just got a new Ball automatic for Christmas from my wife.
I have 10 watches and 31 colognes. I like variety, but I'm not trying necessarily to attract attention. It's more to keep my interest up. But I do like compliments! So it's a little of both for me....
I had a strong feeling they were about to be overcharged for a scent they could walk 20 yards further and get a better deal on. Could I have been wrong? Yes. If it makes you feel any better, they...

The best smelling is Egoiste. The best wearing on my skin are Platinum and Bleu. Edition Blanche is also excellent.
They're both very solid offerings.
Dior Homme and Terre d'Hermes took men's scents in brand new directions. They were game changers. They have both been substantially weakened by reformulation unfortunately.
They introduced new...
I have to agree with your dated list.
My Mom never likes BS.
I agree with my Seminole friend.
Bottega Veneta Pour Homme
Thanks guys! Hope you guys get some nice goodies, too!
Thanks! Merry Christmas to you as well!!!
My wife hated Issey Miyake on me. It's gone. I hated Pens Artemesia on her. It's gone.
We have our little family Christmas early before we go back home. Tonight I got the following scents from my wife:
Frank LA #2 and a set of Bottega Venetta PH. I'm a happy camper!!! Merry...
It reminds me a bit of CK Contradiction for Men.
You did not mess up, but next time go with hour heart and not your head. In matters of scent, go with the one YOU think smells best. To heck with others. I think you'll like both about equally.
I agree it's a tricky one to figure out when to wear, but for me I actually like it as a casual about town type scent. It does not feel right with business suit and tie.
Go to Ross, men. Much better selection.
It's on the way. Next!
Big compliment from one of my employees just now. She was about 15 feet away in my secretary's office. She came sniffing into my office and said "What do you have on? It smells good!". I told her...
I saw a couple of Grandmas in a shop two days ago. They were asking for Armani Code for Men. I just knew they were about to get ripped off by the shop owner, but what do you do? He has a right to run...
Funny thing happened today: I went into Dillard's to buy my wife Chanel Coco Mademoiselle as a tack-on Christmas gift. One of the SA's saw me and said "You look like you are lost!" She said it in a...
Those are all good points. It smelled awesome, but the "label" threw me off.
I've owned it for a year now. It's unisex. My wife bought it for me for Christmas last year. It's very different in my collection. Reminds me so much of the original Perry Ellis for Women from around...
That beats the crap out of Vera Wang Men...that stuff is awful. You did well, with java to boot!
MFK Pluriel Masculine. Got it at a discount for $149.99. Instant love when I tried it in ATL. Modern, classic and manly.
MFK Pluriel Masculine. It knocked my socks off. I'm not frequently wowed, but I dug this big time. Just scored a new bottle for $149.99.
This looks like a split decision.
I agree with Hednic.
I wish they'd do a real hairy chested scent in the vein of Bel Ami or Italian Cypress. A little 80's. Throwback.
That's just mean, lol. Funny, but mean.
GIT is a fickle beast.
I got to smell them this past weekend. My wife liked the Green Tea and I liked the Aberdeen Lavender. I won't buy them because the reviews indicate they are very fleeting. I just hate that. I want an...
Daniel, I had both and swapped them both. They did not click for me. Of the two, Encre Noire Sport because I could smell it. Boisee disappeared on my skin. Bear in mind, vetiver and I are not friends.
DHS 2012 is great versatile juice. Wearing it today.
I did a little research. I don't think it is, but it was a rumor a while back. It's still widely available.
Ok, based on the fact that the price is an issue, Mont Blanc Legend might be a good option. You have TK Maxx, right? Versace Pour Homme (light blue juice) as well.
Hope it does not make her pee.
I loathe scents that do this and I try to avoid them. I like to smell my own cologne, all day preferably.
Epic group there. Wear them frequently.
Dior Homme Sport 2012. This is really good juice.
I have a bottle of Italian Cypress by Tom Ford that's about 30% full. I use it maybe once a month. So I'm not close. Everything else I own is at least 80% full. I would want to replace that TF IC...
Simple. MFK Pluriel Masculine. Tried it, loved it. Need it.
One of my employees gave me a Macy's gift card, so I bought a 3.4 OZ bottle of Dior Homme Sport.
Bleu de Chanel
I do get a shoppers high from purchasing new stuff. The thought of not getting anything new makes me sad. I'm kind of hard wired that way. Thank God I do have my limits. I wish I could go a few...
L'Homme is my favorite. Libre is not good.
My wife loves Nuit on me. Gingembre is a good work scent. Sport is average. Parfum is too sweet.
I tried it a while back. I don't remember being smitten.
I like the cut of your jib, Hednic! Good daddy.
Changed my mind...don't know yet.
Yes sir! My son has an eagle eye!
My box has Jeff Gordon's picture on it.
At least gas is going down, lol! Gucci goes up, gas goes down!
You got it...Ashford Dunwoody. They have recently refurbished that mall...not too bad at all. It's not Lenox, but it's really nice now. Beats Mall of Georgia to pieces.
Don't feel too sorry for me...I still have my 30 bottle collection to drown my sorrows! M7 might have sorely tempted me...
I walked into this neatly set-up cologne store in Atlanta in the Perimeter Mall this past weekend. Very open and accessible store. I walked around and quickly noticed that they had some rarities on...
Yes, TJ Maxx and the other discounters only appear to have the tree moss version these days. My son found mine at a small perfume outlet store while on vacation. After the discount, I think I paid...
YSL Rive Gauche Pour Homme
There are many combinations, but mine came with a EDT spray and a smaller AS splash.
I bought my vintage in a combo pack, but my son was quick to spot the oakmoss in the ingredients panel on the back of the box. By the way, I wore it the other day and it did not wow me. Tom Ford IC...
Try the Zara scents, particularly the Gold one. Polo Red a young scent.
The newest version is much better than the previous, and almost as good as the original. Chanel has made a good effort here.
Probably Varvatos Vintage.
15 of CK Euphoria. Even then, my wife and I could barely smell it.
The Pluriel twins may be Smalto and Preferred Stock.
You are 100% on the money. It's more like cheaper drug store scents, but it smells very nice. I'd love to get a bottle. Just might.
I just tried Pluriel, very nice but it smells like a cheaper cologne. Kind of common smelling....I'd love to remember what this smells like. Something like....I can't pin it down...this will drive me...
Think I'm going with Royal Oud today.
My most recent was a 3.4 OZ Acqua di Gio Pour Homme for $9.40 on a Target clearance deal. As my British friends would say "feeling quite chuffed with myself".
Pluriel sounds good. I have a craving for the aftershavey types right now.
I wore vintage Halston Z-14 today. Three sprays has been about right all day. And I cannot deny that the scent does smell similar to Big Red Cinnamon Chewing Gum, and almost puts that tingly...
I can say with certainty that GQ magazine was my chief resource. Also a short lived magazine called "Men's Guide to Fashion" and Esquire.
But GQ guided me through my teens and twenties. That's...
My 30 bottle collection is worth about $3,000
Vintage Halston Z-14. The similarities with Italian Cypress are incredible. No need to own both.
I do this probably once a month. I have 4 bottles on eBay right now. If they don't move on the swap board, I move them to ebay.
I was just getting ready to post that a Tom Ford rep really knew his stuff last Christmas in Atlanta. Just fantastic. Hope to see him again when my little family makes our annual Christmas trip to...
Eau des Baux
Bond NY for All
Michael Kors 2014
This isn't bad at all! 4 sprays have lasted all day for me..a little weaker than Dior Homme Sport, so that's better than I was expecting. This is very much akin to DHS and Chanel Allure Homme Cologne...
"Prince Hednic". I like it! I can be the "Duke of Augusta".
It's kind of strange for a cologne nut, but I don't have any scents in my car or in my office of more than 10 years now. Just never saw the need. My SOTD has always just carried me through.
Dior Homme Cologne '13. My wife loved it when I sprayed it for her smell last night. She said "do they make anything for women like that?".
I am 47. Before the internet, I had a collection (if I remember correctly) of about 10-12 bottles.
Polo, Kouros, Ferre, Boucheron, Herrera, Benneton, Jaipur, Oscar Pour Lui, Gucci...
