  1. Re: Please give me some opinions about frags with vetiver-noted or with aloofness for hot seasons

    I picked up a bottle of Art of Shaving Vetiver Citron at TJ Maxx for $12.99, and, find it extremely nice especially for that price point. I would second Creed OV and/or Mugler Cologne as well.
