    Thanks for the suggestions everyone, Ive always wanted to try some Creed. Does anyone know any dealers in MN.

    I came to basenotes many years ago in search of the perfect scent. I collected a good dozen bottles of my favorites, I then made the decision to use what I have and revisit in 10 years. This...

    I do not get half the comments about this stuff either. I hear people who don't like it say that its pleasent at first, but with bad drydown. I think exact opposite. I can barely stand this stuff...

    Re: Massive Decant Exchange Group

    Yeah after more thought the logistics is really not feasible. However I can totally see this working by just gathering a group of 3-4 friends and using 1 oz decants.

    No doubt I would rather have...

    This seem to happen with everyone. For someone like me who loves to smell around but can't justify having a wardrobe past 6-7 scents it is the worst. I broke out my Issey Miyake from its winter...

    Before I ever knew of Basenotes I was at the local department store smelling some colognes. I sprayed out a bit of Kouros and was horrified by how it smelt like bad body odor. I went along and when I...

    Chrome & Aqua Di Gio near top the list because of number of compliments vs. how much I wear them. They also have never gotten a BAD response.

    Re: Teenager's first fragrance - suggestions?

    I vote (yet again) for Chrome by Azzaro. Someone mentioned CkOne which smells VERY similar to Chrome but I find Chrome to be a bit more masucline, have longer lasting power and a better drydown. I...

    I think PI gets a bad rap for a few reasons.

    1) It is hands-down the most potent cologne I own. 1 spritz MAYBE 2 and that is all you need. People claim they feel completely overhwhelmed by the...
