  1. Re: (book/magazine) paper + glue-adhesive smell

    I havent tried them, but Comme de Garcons 2011 is supposed to smell like brown packing tape. There is also a fragrance named Book by Commodity that i hear smells like Santal 33.
  2. Re: controversial question about not wearing scents in order to appreciate them more

    I'll take a night off here or there and not spray something before I go to bed. If I was you, I wouldn't think of it as clashing with your wife as much as intermingling.
  3. Re: Your SOTD chart rocket? The newer scents in your wardrobe that are rising fast.

    I wore Viking for Vikings games this year, so that was like 16 wears. That really shot it up fast.
