    Re: New Chanel COCO pour homme!!!!!!!

    I saw one a long time ago in a different bottle. It will rise in value I guess. Just costs a few pounds, I might bid on it.

    Any info on Musk Monsieur?

    What does it smell like?
    Any other perfumes similar to it?
    It is by Dana? I always thought it is by Houbigant.
