    Something that smells like cotton candy and lasts fifteen minutes. Meant for teenie-boppers, not your average Basenoter. The young girls will love it, and there's nothing wrong with that.

    Not sold in the US

    A friend of mine will be in Paris in a couple of weeks and asked if there was anything he could pick up for me that I can't buy in the US. The only fragrance I could come up with was Chanel Pour...

    A guy like you needs something youthful, avant-garde, and grungy. I would suggest Comme des Garçons Series 3 Synthetic: Garage. It really does smell exactly like a commercial garage. It's very rough...

    Depends on what you like, dude. I went to the Creed counters at Nieman Marcus and Bloomingdales to try them out. Glad I did. I bought bottles of Royal Oud and Millesime Imperial, which I love, and...

    Re: Which is the best "amber" perfume?

    I like Ambre Extreme too. It has that Ellena feel to it that I've grown to love.

    Re: Dior Homme Intense reformulated review.

    I have the May 2011 DHI. It's nice for sure (it smells leathery to me), but it's not like my vintage DH, which makes me swoon. I'm glad I bought two bottles when I did.

    Re: A beginner's wardrobe

    Just picked up a bottle of Stetson at K-Mart for $9.99. What a surprise! I found I love florals, and Stetson original, despite the marketing message, is about as fem floral as I've found. LOVE IT!

    Re: Strange Longevity and Sillage - Le Male

    Re: The longevity and sillage of Egoiste

    It's been ten hours since I applied Egoiste, and the exquisite drydown has become more pronounced over the past couple of hours. It's one of the best fragrances I've ever worn.

    Re: Creed Royal Oud

    I put some on yesterday at 7:30 am and at 6:30 pm gave a friend a hug. He said: "You smell nice, and I usually don't like cologne." I had thought it was long gone by then. It's very subtle.

    Thanks for all the information. Very cool. I have a lot to learn.

    If I underapplied, then definitely not a fragrance for the office.

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

    I've been testing the sillage of a different fragrance every day on some of my colleagues at the office. So far, the women's favorites are Guerlain Vetiver, Dior Homme, and Amouage Memoir Man.

    Re: Guess Seductive Homme

    I sprayed my arms and chest with a sample tonight. The cardamon and caramel top notes are nice, but collide with the pungent violet leaves. It reminds me of being in a freshly painted room.
