  1. Re: Just in case you ever doubted A*Men's strength...

    I have cloth seats. And my car doesn't stink by any means, but it doesn't exactly smell like rose petals anf sunshine either.



    Hence the phrase "just in case".

  2. Just in case you ever doubted A*Men's strength...

    I put some on last night, just a normal spraying. I'm not one to drown myself in anything. Anyway, this was last night around 7 or 8.

    Fast forward to about 20 min ago, 4pm. About 21 hours later. ...
  3. Re: Trying to pick two out of three: Bvlgari Black, A*Men, and A*Men Pure Leather

    Well, given I have a hard time detecting it after I spray it on anyway I don't think sniffing it after putting it on will be much of a problem. :lolk:

    No, I mean I can smell it if I really try but...
  4. Re: Trying to pick two out of three: Bvlgari Black, A*Men, and A*Men Pure Leather

    I'll have to sample that one out.



    Not yet. But if they're good like A*Men I won't bother. I'll just get them.
  5. Re: Trying to pick two out of three: Bvlgari Black, A*Men, and A*Men Pure Leather

    I plan on owning at least two or three flankers of A*Men. A*Men is one of the best colognes I've ever sniffed (so far) and I read tons of praise of the flankers. Pure Leather might be one of them.

  6. Re: Trying to pick two out of three: Bvlgari Black, A*Men, and A*Men Pure Leather

    I went with A*Men and Bvlgari Black. I like Black pretty well, but man is it soft. Even when I first spray it on I can barely tell I've got anything on.

    Is that just the nature of it or did I get...
  7. Re: Trying to pick two out of three: Bvlgari Black, A*Men, and A*Men Pure Leather

    No, I haven't smelled either one, but I actually prefer to blind buy, at least with less expensive ($60 and below, to me) fragrances. I just like to get a good feel (as good as can be expected buying...
  8. Re: Trying to pick two out of three: Bvlgari Black, A*Men, and A*Men Pure Leather

    I plan on owning both eventually but for now Pure Malt is out of the price range if I'm going to be getting Black. A*Men original is $45 vs $78 for Malt right now on fragnet. And Pure Leather is even...
  9. Trying to pick two out of three: Bvlgari Black, A*Men, and A*Men Pure Leather

    Can't decide. Would it be too redundant to own both Pure Leather and Bvlgari Black because of the leather note in them?

    I've only ever smelled A*Men, not the other two. Thanks.
