  1. Re: What fragrance was so bad you HAD to wash it off?

    Bond no.9 I Love New York. I had it on for about 1-2 hours and took it all off. I couldnt stand how thick/sweet it smelled. It was suffocating.

    If anyone wants a 10ml let me know!
  2. Re: Ever buy something only because your GF likes it on you?

    im in the exact same situation, and am just as bewildered. I do think of buying it though.

  6. Re: Got a Sample of CREED Aventus…Pleasantly DISAPPOINTED, anyone else?

    it may have been the batch? I remember sampling it at a local mall and I hated it, as it smelled like pure smoke. At the same time, i had blind bought a 30ml split and i absolutely loved it.

    Re: Creed Royal Oud or Millesime Imperial?

    MI is way too sweet. I found it smell like sugar coated watermelons with a hint of watery-ness. I'd go for Ryoal Oud if it had to be one of the other, though I'm not a huge fan of either.
