    Re: 2003 Bottle of Givenchy Pi

    He's asking about a 13 year old vintage bottle that has since been reformulated, so it's probably not all that easy to find this exact type of info. And this is a thread created by a new member who...

    Re: One more cold weather scent..

    It was between Armani Code Profumo and Armani Code Special Blend for me....and I was having a tough time deciding on which one, so I did the old "ask some (4) women which one they prefer" bit. It...
  91. Re: IF like Polo Crest but don`t like Polo Green Original..............?

    Think the reasoning behind that could be because Crest came out in '91, and by then, original Polo had been out since '78....and if you were like me, after wearing Polo as practically a signature...

    Poll: Re: The Best Fragrance To Wear On Dates

  94. Re: MACY'S Fragrances: Do They Really All Smell The Same?

    I agree with you regarding Macy's "sales" approach. You are absolutely right, that if they can't or don't sell you something, it does seem that they would just as soon have you leave the store. ...
  95. Re: MACY'S Fragrances: Do They Really All Smell The Same?

    Funny you mention this...because Macy's STILL carries Chanel, where as Sephora no longer does (at least, in my area), and Ulta doesn't. Matter of fact, Macy's is where I got my bottle of Bleu de...

    Re: Rotating Fragrances through the Seasons

    Same here. I admit that I have some that I tend to wear MORE OFTEN during the warmer weather or during the cooler weather, but even then, I'll still bring out ones that most people associate as a...
  99. Re: Like Armani Code - but more fresh/less sweet

    As a lifelong fan of Armani/Black Code...I've pretty much settled on Special Blend at this point, which I wouldn't say is any fresher, but is probably a tad spicier and also a tad less sweet. Until...
