  87. Re: Article: Burr's S01E02 fragrance revealed to be Mugler Cologne

    $50 for 1 oz. of a niche perfume. I am doing that! I've followed Chandler's reviews long enough to trust his recommendations.
  88. Ma Griffe...

    Ma Griffe has always smelled like damp mossy earth to me. I love it.
  89. Re: Bulgari on a blind buy for girlfriend's Christmas present: Au The Rouge, or Au The Vert Extreme!

    I don't get many compliments on my scents (just the occasional once or twice a year from strangers), but I was complimented on Au The Rouge, and I think that's grounds for recommending it. I also...
  90. Re: How much extrait do you apply? And how?

    I tip the bottle against my (clean) finger, and apply 3-4 "splashes". The right amount varies widely from fragrance to fragrance. I used this amount recently with some Chanel 22 parfum and nearly...

    Re: Compliments on Perfume

    I average about one compliment a year on fragrances: this year's was Kenzo Flower (last month), and last year it was Womanity. Previous honors go to Badgley Mishka, Must de Cartier and Alyssa Ashley...

    Re: Versace Blonde

    The wardrobe scent picker chose Blonde for me today, so I finally opened my bottle. Yes, I can see the Fracas resemblance, in an Italian re-interpretation. If you love tuberose, you should enjoy this.

    Re: Sample Of The Day - June 2011

    I've worn Mimosaique for the past six years or so, and have never had a problem with longevity or sillage. IMO, its just about the perfect Mimosa.
  95. Re: Oops, You Died! What Fragrance You Want On You, Buried With You, Etc.?

    I'll take the last of my Deneuve parfum with me.
  96. Re: Why all the hate for Unforgivable by Sean John?

    After spritzing some on my significant other at Walmart (yes, they sell it at the W) I got a bottle for him because it smells great on him. That was about two years ago, and he wears it most days...
  97. Re: Miss Dior Cherie EDP 2011 v. Miss Dior Cherie EDP 2005

    I have had trouble keeping track of bottles lately, and although I knew I had a bottle of MDC, I hadn't seen it in a while. But when searching for another MIA scent, I came across the MDC - 2005 EDP...

    Re: if i like RL Tuxedo, i'll love ...

    I don't think it will help you much, but I'm a huge fan of Tuxedo, and I think Bill Blass Basic Black has a very similar feel. Unfortunately, its probably even harder to find than Tuxedo. But I can...
  100. Re: A little Christmas Shopping Help Please! :)

    Last Christmas I gave my Nephew, who was 23 at the time, Kenzo Power. I think he was skepictical about it at first, because it is floral, but gave it a chance. I recently smelled in on him at one of...
