    Re: GIT vs. Coolwater -- Afraid to see.....

    Your post said you were an "owner" of CW. If CW was your daily sent and you didn't realize it's connection with GIT (other than perhaps some superficial similarity), until you read about on BN, ok,...

    Re: GIT vs. Coolwater -- Afraid to see.....

    This is a pretty bad example. There is a large objectifiable difference between an $8 steak and a $35 steak. One is clearly better than the other under generally recognized criteria. Now, I really...

    Re: Major Cologne Storage Warning

    I tested one of the bottles, but I can't remember if it was the one I fridge tested. The decanted product in the new "controlled" test seems just fine as of now. At this point I have to believe it...

    Re: Major Cologne Storage Warning

    The more I think about it, the more convinced I'm becoming that there was a problem with the bottle I put in the fridge, but the only way to find out for 100% certain is to do another test with stuff...

    Re: Major Cologne Storage Warning

    With the Mugler -- Unless someone has another explanation -- storage overnight in the fridge at a modest temp (45-50) completely ruined the cologne. It now has no fragrance whatsoever. I know this...

    Re: Major Cologne Storage Warning

    What was it stored at yesterday, and what was the effect? The only alternative explanation for my experience is that the bottle I used in the fridge had slightly less juice than the others -- less...

    Major Cologne Storage Warning

    I recently had the opportunity to purchase my favorite, Mugler cologne, at bargain basement price -- $9 for 2.6oz tester. Anyway, after reviewing a number of threads on cologne storage, I thought I...

    Re: Gendarme Question

    Thanks all. Returned mine for a full refund. Frankly, I'm not that sorry. Bulgari PH is better and Mugler cologne WAY better IMHO. Unlike what some others have said, I think all 3 do the same...

    Re: Clove

    I like clove also -- Jacomo di Jacomo -- the most clovey I know, but I don't really like it. Royall Bay Rum, excellent, but the scent is not very long lasting (this is a great aftershave also). I...
