    Poll: Re: Deodorant

    Of the ones listed Swagger is the best.

    My new favorite is Fiji. I got a gift set with the body wash, spray, deodorant and a shower scrub. At first it smelt like a pina colada but the scent has...
  2. Re: Do you find fragrance based body-washes worth it?

    Not worth it IMO.

    I try not to use a soap or bodywash that will conflict with the scent I am using that day. Today to the office I am wearing Polo Black and I used Old Spice Swagger body wash in...

    Re: Old Spice smells like manure

    Shulton Old Spice has a warm vanilla floral smell.

    P&G Old Spice has a powdery floral with a hint of licorice smell.

    Both are classics that I enjoy from time to time.

    Re: Bigelow Barber Cologne Elixir Black No. 1581

    I agree that Black smells like JV. Black dries down to a plain vanilla musk smell after awhile though.

  8. Re: What fragrance smells like Speed Stick Musk?

    Speed Stick Musk is a great scent. It is a pity the deodorant doesn't last longer. I expected more since the cover reads "all day odor protection" More like 3 hour protection at best.
