    Re: Creed Scents: Overrated (A Noob's Opinion)

    I have two thoughts here. First, Creed is consistently exorbitantly expensive regardless of whether the item is new or established. Most new fragrances from other houses have various promotions of...

    Re: What is your most used fragrance?

    Most used is Patchouli by Molinard. Usually that's paired with Blue Sugar by Aquolina as the patchouli tones down the sweetness o Blue Sugar for me. My all time favorite and trusted standby is...
  6. Re: Which two cologne scents do you like to wear layered together?

    I am really surprised at the many people who "don't layer"!
    Layering or pairing can so often alter fragrances for the better, ESPECIALLY those fragrances that get negatively reviewed here. I...

  8. Re: looking for a very strong scent for men , which lasts really long , plss help ,

    Patchouli by MOLINARD. Very strong...moderate longevity, but warm and masculine. Pi by GIVENCHY is easily the strongest and most pervasively long lasting and projecting "Mens" cologne I've ever...

    Re: Looking for a 'fun' scent.

    Patchouli by Molinard. Definitely "smoldering"! Gianfranco Ferre for Him and GF Lui should also suit your taste/style.

    Re: Favorite "smell good"/"safe"/"blind buy" scent?

    Gianfranco Ferre for Man is first choice. Also like GF Lui. Burberry... All are pleasant, mild, and inoffensive in mixed company.

    I've tested several Creed fragrances and was generally disappointed. Of what you mention, Aventus is nice enough, but heed the warnings here about Creed's poor longevity! That they dissipate quickly...

    Re: 'Rugged' daily wear fragrance?

    For daily wear, you can't go wrong with Gianfranco Ferre Man. Yes, it's less expensive but it is suitable for winter, manages to be bold yet inoffensive in any situation, and has great longevity.
