  1. Re: You people realize that real smells are infinitely better than fake ones, right?

    The problem with "real smells" is that I don't have blackcurrant, bergamot, apple, pineapple, rose, birch, jasmine, patchouli, musk, oak moss, ambergris, and vanilla laying around my dorm room. That...

    Re: Creed Windsor

    Does anyone know just how rare Windsor is? Like how many bottles are floating around there? And is it likely that it'll be re-issued?

    People claim Gucci by Gucci is similar. I own both and don't really see the connection.

    Montblanc's most recent fragrance has a near identical pyramid, but are not so similar either. My answer:...

    Obligatory vote for Aventus. Because you really should, if you're willing to shell out the money for it. You won't be disappointed.

    Re: Dolce and Gabbana THE ONE--Love it, but. . .

  13. Re: Ask a guy wearing TEN SPRAYS, of Aventus, anything.

    I have it on good authority that ten sprays of Joop! is enough to kill a man. More than two and I myself begin to cough. Are you lying?
  14. Re: Best vanilla: Jaipur Homme, Givenchy Pi, or Acqua di Parma Mandorlo di Sicilia?

    The note in Pi that you smell as vanilla is most likely benzoin, but yes, Pi has the best effect of the three. I also like Creed's Sublime Vanille and Guerlain's Spiriteuse Double Vanille.

    Kilian's Cruel Intentions is not overly loud if you don't overspray. Notes of bergamot and rose, and a little neroli blend well into the oud so that it isn't overpowering.
