  1. Re: Your favorite Geranium and minty fragrance?

    Yep, that would the best that has both.

    If you would like some rum / vetiver with it, I strongly suggest Guerlain Homme Intense.

    Poll: Re: Favourite Creed House Fragrance (Poll) ?

    IMO any poll about Creed fragrances really should include

    Jardin d'Amalfi
    Royal Oud
    Bois du Portugal
    Bois de Cedrat
  4. Poll: Re: Terre d'Hermes Pure Parfum vs. Dior Homme Intense

    Weak? No. But not a "beast" - but that is a plus. If you are the type of person who wears TdH, you probably don't want to be "that guy" anyway.
  5. Poll: Re: Terre d'Hermes Pure Parfum vs. Dior Homme Intense

    Own both, but TdH Parfum is better and far more versatile.
