Bleu or L'homme. I'm not a fan of how powdery brit is.
They do definitely have a similarity but GIT is a far superior scent.
Thanks for all the input.
I'm definitely going to have to sample all three now
I'm interested in trying out some creeds for the warmer weather, specifically MI, VIW, and SMW.
Because there is nowhere in my area that I can go and smell these I have to buy samples online.
Safe scent, but kind of expensive if he doesn't end up liking it...
Im a big fan of GPHII. Might be my favorite scent that I've smelt so far.
I'd say bleu is more versatile for every day of the year, although GPHII is a better scent IMO
You can still find some decent prices online, eBay for example.
My roommate has the deodorant and I agree it smells pretty bad.
Something like really sweet cherry cough syrup.
Old Spice or Axe. Just one that's not to strong
Bleu de Chanel
with GPHII as my favorite
I can imagine that amazon would willing to work out any issues that you had with their order but I don't think you should place an order expecting a refund or replacement if its not 100% as you...
StateChamps mentioned this above but fragrances sold on amazon are non-returnable.
Its listed on every page that I've seen: Special Shipping Information: This item is non-returnable
GPHII for sure. The dry down is very nice with the tea notes
Lots of what everyone else has said but something else is what clothes I'm wearing.
If I'm dressing nice on a certain day I tend to reach for something different than if I was wearing something...
That's one expensive shot...
I cant believe you cant smell the similarities. I do agree that CW is much more synthetic though
l'homme or bleu like everyone else has said.
Personally I think l'homme smells better and has more to it.
Essenza is supposedly spicier and it seemed to be stronger and last longer. But I'm not sure if its as much of an aquatic as the original is.
If you had to pick one, which is a better overall scent?
More for warmer weather wear in the spring and summer.
Don't take into consideration popularity/overuse.
Check out some of the threads in Men's Grooming
Dont have many overall so i try to only get ones that fall into this category but +1 for GPHII
This should be renamed to people without common sense should NOT buy from amazon.com
Every time I've order something from them I've been 100% satisfied.
Definitely. I've seen tester bottles that have gone very bad at Spehora. The sales lady said that since they are directly under the display lights that they don't last long at all; so artificial...
I tried legend the other day and all I could think of was YSL L'Homme.
Are they similar or is it worth having both?
There's drawbacks with spraying on clothes though
Generally when I'm wearing cologne I'm also wearing nice clothes. I don't wash my nicer garments after every single wear because they wear out so...
Kind of off topic from the current conversation but, I got a 10ml sample of batch# C3211X02 and I'm somewhat disappointed.
I just get a empty freshness that doesn't do much for me. All I can think...
it may just be me but I'm not a fan of the flower/angel design.
I like any of the ones with the cursive font as well as #43.
+1 on YSL l'homme
Maybe Gucci Pour Homme II
I wear both of those regularly in college as well as Boss Bottled
10 ml sample of Aventus (Z01 batch) and 10 ml sample of GIT for $40 total off ebay.
Anyone know if this is a decent price?
I couldn't imagine having to smell something on myself while I'm at the gym.
Only acceptable scent at the gym is sweat!
I get a strong tea vibe at the top and then it dries down to a very warm, gentle scent. Perfect for a crowded environment; I wear this to class regularly.
eBay. Just order from a top-rated seller and you'll save a lot of money too
I would still say l'homme for during the say in class and Le Male for whenever you go out
You should let someone in charge know because she might ruin the experience for someone in the future that takes it personally.
Im 18 and in my first year in college as well and just recently got into the fragrance world.
My first 3 buys have been:
Gucci Pour Homme II
All are great scents that...
Let her decide which one smells best to her...
Took the words right out of my mouth
Spray all day
It was actually last night but scooped it up off eBay for what I thought was a really good price.
Had to get it soon because they seem to be disappearing from stores...
I almost always go for the smaller bottle. I feel like I would never finish a bigger one.
Thanks for the feedback. Going to go ahead and get it!
I've been thinking about getting GPHII for some time now and saw this on eBay:
Im in the same position as you, college student that is somewhat new to fragrances.
While 1 million is nice I don't think its the right choice for everyday use around campus.
After I did a little...
Just ordered 2 samples. Never tried aventus before but if its as good as I've read and this smells exactly the same why not!?
The color of yours is right. I have a bottle and its definitely not white.
I go with the smaller sizes because I feel like once I use up a bottle I will want to try something new. The better price per oz doesn't appeal to me all that much and if I really do like a scent I...
I really enjoy Boss Bottled. Haven't tried any of the others.
Yes. Might start keeping my bottles in them after reading this.
Im just starting off much like you.
The first two real purchases I've made so far are Boss Bottled and YSL L'Homme.
Neither are aquatics but they were my favorite out of everything I sampled and I...
Hi. Im fairly new to the site and after a lot of reading through I think it might be helpful to have a discussion section for the younger crowd on basenotes.
Just a suggestion as I imagine I will be...
I like it. Especially for daytime use because it has a very pleasant scent and is not to overpowering.
By the way I find Jennifer Aniston very attractive so maybe I'm way off...
Same here. Usually is fine if I come back 5 min later.
Just arrived from amazon.com
This was my first online purchase and I'm very satisfied.
Another for YSL - L'Homme
+1 for Speed Stick. Very inexpensive and in almost every store.
First of the collection!
Thanks everyone for all the great advice.
I think I've narrowed it down to 3, but would really only like to get 2 to start off with.
Acqua di Gio- I'm wondering if this is more of a warmer...
So I tried out burberry brit and it seemed very powdery, something that would maybe seem more suitable for working in an office. I also tried jean paul gaultier le male and this seemed like it may be...
Is boss bottled the same as Boss No.6? Because that keeps coming up when I search it. Or are they two different things?
Im a freshman in college and looking to get 1-2 new scents for everyday use in college.
Ive been browsing a lot and compiled a list of what seems mentioned the most and popular
(not in any sort of...
