    Didn't like this one it all. Dirty, harsh, and unpleasant. It's almost as far from "fresh" as you can get.
  94. Re: What scents have you been the most surprised by people's reactions to - either positive or negat

    Surprised by POSITIVE reactions to Aventus. The first night I wore it I had multiple women flocking around me in a bar gushing over how good I smelled. No exaggeration.
  95. Re: Creed Spring Flower and Sublime Vanille, and other Creed femmes

    IMO, Love in White is all about the drydown. It is initially citrusy and a little sweet and nice, but the drywdown is really sexy.

    Good to hear about Spring Flowers! It's great stuff!

    I've never even tried Fierce. I should check it out at the mall.

    Re: Do you tip the mule?

    I think he's referring to tipping the mule like you would a waitress, not a cow. :)

    I was going to make a joke about this, but didn't.
