  1. Re: Ajaccio Violets (1995) by Geo F Trumper

    Bought it. Wanted to like it, but couldn't. The longevity was not fleeting enough for me, so I gave it away.

  4. Re: first-world problems: dust, scratches, fingerprints, lighting

    Keep them in a cabinet which will reduce the dust. Have one of your maids periodically clean the cabinet. How are you scratching and smudging the bottles? What are you doing with them?
  5. Re: If MONEY was no option....What niche Fragrance would you pick up and why?

    Now that I've received Enigma I would suggest obtaining this one and then trying the rest of Roja Dove's frags.
  6. Re: If MONEY was no option....What niche Fragrance would you pick up and why?

    I took my own advice, it arrives Thursday.
  7. Re: If MONEY was no option....What niche Fragrance would you pick up and why?

    Roja's Enigma parfum extract. Notes sound interesting and sometimes you just have to go for it since life is short.

    I too have been on a quest for a pure lemon scent that lasts. Monsieur Balmain and Aqua Viva are both great. Opposite ends of the cost spectrum, but both are favorites of mine to combat the Houston...
  10. Re: My first Czech & a Speake, which should it be?

    Cuba is my favorite of the the 3 that I have already acquired. I have better longevity with 88, but O&C is a great old school lavender. (Pun intended.)

    As others have said, the determining factor in what I wear is the weather, nothing else. I'm a rich, opulent guy so anything goes..........
  12. Re: Clive Christian C versus X - How do they differ ?

    Tried both at Saks, thought C was ok, but I have other leather scents that I prefer. I wore X yesterday and it is fantastic. As others have said, old school masculine.

    Re: Coolest Looking Cologne Bottle.

    I believe cologne can be a style, a strength, or generic description for fragrances. It depends on the context.
  20. Poll: Re: On a scale from 1-5, how important is presentation to you?

    While the juice is the most important element, the bottle design is also important to me, so it would be a 4. Now that I have a display in my bathroom I can appreciate the artistry of my collection.

    Re: When do you wear Tauer's LDDM?

    I like it during the day when it is cooler. Wonderful scent and it has good longevity.
  29. Re: Thoughts on black afgano by nassamato? (spelling)

    I like this fragrance. As others have said, it is not for everyone, but it is a wonderful smokey, full bodied resinous scent that makes me feel warm on a cold dreary winter day.

    North of 100. I segment my collection into warm and cool weather. I further break it down by casual and more formal wear. I never wear a fragrance two days in a row, rarely wear the same fragrance...

  40. Re: Creed - Neiman Marcus "Refill" Event - November 22

    If they, in fact, re-issue Windsor in the 250 ml flacon it would be cheaper per milliliter (if you can call it that) to buy the flacon at $650.

    If you're looking for a very long lasting singularly beautiful lush lemon it is definitely Acqua Viva. I, too enjoy Monsieur Balmain, but Acqua Viva is in a different category.
