    Sticky: Re: Which scent gets you the most female compliments?

    Rarely, and I mean RARELY, do I get compliments from women on fragrances.
    Got an unsolicited compliment from an attractive cashier I see everyday

    Re: Thanks to the fragrance community!

    Congratulations! Non-smokers have no idea how hard it is to quit.

    I got into the fragrance hobby shortly after I quit (with Chantix too).
    But, I only stayed off the sticks for 6 months. Went...

    Re: Vintage Fougere Royale

    Glad to hear your thoughts as well. Sounds like there's not much need to track down the vintage.

    The reason I used Gucci Guilty, Musk Ravageur and Invasion Barbare in my comparison is because
    these fragrances are perfect examples of what qualifies as "designer" and "niche" in my mind.

    Niche...

    Re: Free to a good home

    Glad you like it, and glad it arrived quicker than expected :)
    It's a really good fragrance, I just never seemed to reach for it though.
    I'm glad someone will get good use out of it.
  95. Re: Finally got me a vial of Fougere Royale.............NICE!

    I like the re-release as well, and was lucky enough
    to get good deal on a partial bottle from a fellow basenoter recently.

    I think it's an excellent fragrance, but not worth the

    Re: Musc Kublai Khan question

    I have to say that I love this one as well.
    But, then again, I like animalic fragrances, so take what I say with
    a grain of salt.

    I ordered a bottle of this one blind, and I really liked it,...

    Re: "What does niche smell like?"

    I'd let them smell something like Gucci Guilty for Men,
    then I'd let them sample something like
    Musk Ravegeur, or Invasion Barbare, and watch in
