    8) Hi Rob . . . Ca va? If you have a strong stomach, and better yet, a stuffed up nose . . . try HEI, by Alfred Sung. This is about as watery as a fragrance, gets . . . burp.

    Re: FORGET FENDI UOMO

    8) I never have brought it up. This is the first time I've ever uttered a syllable about Fendi Uomo. I don't like it. The women's Fendi is even worse.

    Re: I feel cheated

    8) I think you already have. Jim 'the Bark' is a basenoter with formidable knowledge of out of the way scents for men, and he has a terrific nose. But still: I do not promote the notion of asking...

  100. Re: Eau de Rochas Homme: what are you waiting for?

    8) Byzance was created as a women's fragrance. I didn't care for that one, either. I used to love Madame Rochas . . . but it has been 'modernized,' with less than pleasing results. I don't know Globe.
