  1. Re: Frederic Malle "Une Rose" vs. Serge Lutens "Sa Majeste la Rose"???

    Definitely Sa Majeste la Rose. It is like catnip to me, I adore it.
    Une Rose on the other hand smells really fake and plasticy to me.
  2. Re: Comme des Garçons for a man who likes Armani Code

  3. Comme des Garçons for a man who likes Armani Code

    I'm a fan of the Comme des Garçons range and would like to buy one for a boyfriend. The only fragrance he owns is Armani code - which CdG do you think he'd like? Thanks for suggestions.

    Re: What would you choose among these four Lutens?

    Yes, I agree for a man. I forgot to make the disclaimer that Feminite de Bois is what I would chose for me and I'm female.

    Feminite de Bois - though it doesn't last long on me unless I accidentally spray some on my clothes, I love it.
  7. Re: Stereotypical "Feminine" Bottles, Packaging: Irritating? Offensive? Humiliating?

    Hmmm, perhaps as a woman this is why I prefer unisex perfumes, nearly all the perfume bottles I own are not pink or flower like at all.
