    I guess this is what will be replacing the downtown Robson street Sears store in Vancouver. Holt Renfrew is in the same mall.

    Re: Platinum Egoiste or Fierce?

    Fierce. PE is nice but it smells much classier to me which doesn't evoke a picture of arrogance. Fierce is also better for your age and girls love it.
