    Well, let's not hope it turns sour within the next few weeks... :-X That's not what I expect of a scent costing 110 Euros! :o

    I'm also looking for a 70's or 80's powerhouse frag... Well, I have to go to town one of these days to test it! Is it wearable like - say - Zino? Or is the patchouli too much "in your...

    Creed Production Dates

    I have received another bottle of GIT, one of my favourite scents, and to my surprise the production date was 2002! This means that the juice is almost 4 years old!!! Given the fact that Creed mostly...

    Re: Reflections of Man (My 1000th post)

    Congrats from me as well! And the fragrance shop is a brilliant idea, I wish I had the talent and the guts to start something comparable!!!

    As for samples, here in Germany we have this niche page...
  92. Re: Recommendations needed: Masculine office scent

    Actually, I have Creed Tabarome, but now, after having worn it for about 5 times it makes me sick... SADLY!!! I really like the smell, it's a beautiful and masculine scent of superbquality, but...

    It actually is, but due to my "ambiguous" phrasing people reading the headline don't seem to get what I'm looking for! :o THis is why I started aa new thread. I am not looking for a scent that smells...
  94. Scents that start out completely differently

    I'm looking for scents that are easily overlooked because they start out completely differently and need something like at least half an hour to develop on the skin. What I have heard is that Serge...

    Re: Silver Mountain Water

    I don't have SMW, but I've sampled it and must say that on my skin os does last longer than MI, but not as long as GIT. GIT is around 6 - 7 hrs that I can smell it, I'd say with MI I get 3 - 4, SMW...
  98. Scents that smell different when applied to skin?

    I've been collecting and testing frags for quite some time now and have found many that I like and even more that I don't like that much, don't like any longer or don't like at all.

    Re: Aquatic Scents

    I love Erolfa! :-*
