    Re: Perry Ellis M

    It shares some similarities to Allure but its very much its own fragrance. For about $20 I would say its definitely worth the blind buy. I get at least 8 hours on my skin which is decent longevity...

    Re: Mont Blanc Individuel

    As others have said I can't see myself wearing this in the summer months. Early spring on cool days is about as warm as I would go with Individuel. Age wise I think anyone 25+ can pull this off. ...
  3. Re: Perry Ellis 360 Red or Liz Claiborne Curve For Men

    Of the two I would go with 360 Red. I would also put Nautica Voyage on your radar too. You can pick that up at Ross or Marshalls for around $15.

  5. Re: Looking for some reasonably priced unique frags for my small collection

    One I'm wearing at the moment that I really like is Black Touch by Franck Olivier. 3.4 oz bottle can be had for under $25 and its smells well over double that price.
