  1. Re: a green smell of the woods after the rain ?

    No. 19 is a green citrus with woods. Although it smells tempting, I feel the drydown in disctinctly feminine.

  4. Re: Creed's Feuille Verte:  Initial Impressions

    I thought that movie "Gone in 60 Seconds" was about a bottle of Feuille Verte but I later found out it was about cars! LOL! Anyways, if you like FV, give cyprus musc a try, you won't regret it!
  5. Re: One day you like it then the next you hate it.

    For me, Neroli Sauvage is divine every time! My story is with Rive Gauche. I loved it now I hate it. It is nothing more than a can of barbesol shave cream. I like Jazz much better. D&G is comparable...
  6. Re: Terre D'Hermes - Summer's Essence

    I just love TDH and it is my holy grail. I have creeds and other niche stuff but TDH is the ultimate fresh and masculine fragrance. I will always have it, always!
  7. Re: One scent for the rest of your life.

    I was going to answer with Terre D'hermes but golly, A*Men is quickly growing on me!
  8. Re: Suggestion for next cologne? (22yr old male)

    I love Terre D'Hermes but I don't know if it might be a tad more mature. If you want a young teenage girly magnet fragrance found at a bazillion department stores, go for Chrome, kenneth cole...
  9. Re: A*Men: Born on the 4th of July

    I did one direct spray and then one walk-through. I found myself craving just one more spray but would that be living on the edge? LOL! I have enjoyed it tremendously today!

    Terre D'Hermes is a holy grail for me. I love the green and inscensy notes! I kept wondering what smelled so good all day yesterday and it was where TDH did not wash out of my shirt! I use tide which...

  14. Re: General CREED perfumes impression

    Some do smell of old world quality, some are beautiful, and some are other-worldly. Creed doesn't make a bad fragrance, it is a matter of finding the one for you. With me, I change my mind often.
  15. Re: A*Men: Born on the 4th of July

    I forgot to add that the summer flash is absolutely amazing! All of their stock was gone but I still got to sample it from the tester!
  16. Re: Which is the most unique fresh fragrance...

    Neroli Sauvage

    Dolce and Gabanna PH! I love the lemony fresh start but that tobacco note makes me sick and ill!

    Re: Fuille Verte Review(s)

    Let me have a stab. The lime is detectable in the topnotes which quickly fades to some raw woods. The overall longevity is poor, at best 10 minuites. At $475, it ought to have sillage from hates! Not...

    I have been admiring this fragrance. I am tempted to believe that these are in the same genre perhaps:
