    Re: Linday Lohan wears Chanel Bleu

    My wife loves Bleu. If she went rogue on her fragrance gender taboos, she would steal it for sure. But she likes it on me mostly because of the tsunami of clean notes. Fake clean hubs!

    These Jimmy Choo Man scents seem to get better with each new flanker. I liked the Ice flanker, and this one even more.
  15. Re: Caswell Massey Tricorn is excellent.

    Judging by the comments on the C-M site, this Gold Cap version is matching "vintage" 80's Tricorn almost exactly, with the reviewers all praising it, and uniformly hating on the new "Heritage"...
