    Re: What do you consider

    Not enough sales. Everything else goes on sale at some time or another: hard drives, clothing, peanut butter...why not fragrance? Can't the Bay have a 50% off sale once and a while?

    Re: Plastic atomizer changing scent?

    Both Azzaro Chrome and Black XS actually make me gag a bit. But Black XS is really the worst fragrance I've ever smelled. I should note that I've not smelled most of the ones listed here.

    Re: versace pour homme grey market or fake?

    Thanks guys. After nearly four hours of testing I think I'm ready to call this one ok. The most likely explanation is probably that they just aren't official. Scary though!

    versace pour homme grey market or fake?

    So I got a bottle of Versace Pour Homme from 1001fragrance.ca. I was wondering if this was either grey market or fake.

    Cool Water probably. I take many trips and I just take Cool Water with me, so I won't be too disappointed if my luggage is lost (it's the cheapest, not because I don't like it).

    I feel this saying only really applies to saying bad things about individuals close to you so you can avoid hurting their feelings. I don't think anyone cares about the feelings of a company.
