    Re: Frederic Malle Enthusiasts

    Hey you!
    Read your review on Une Fleur de Cassie, you said it would do good in some warmth. I'm thinking the same, like someone else mentioned it smelled to them like "pure moisture" or something...

    Re: Recommendations please

    If you're going into niche-territory, get some samples of the Frederic Malle/Editions de Parfums ones... More affordable than Creed those bottles.

    My personal favourite after trying about 6-7...

    You will still need 3 to 12 of those for variety. ;-)

    Re: the best fruity perfume for men

    It might as well be. Believe it's launched towards women. Anyway having read some reviews on basenotes it might has well been launched unisex. Not that I have sniffed it.
