    Re: YOUR 3 GREATEST but WEAKEST SCENTS ?

    Surprised at Terre being mentioned on the list.

    One spray of it lasts 12 hours on me. And I'm cautious about wearing more than one.

    I ought to try walking into a mist of it once or twice.

    Re: Scents for 29 Year Old

    It would help if you provided what type of scents you prefer.

    Do you still prefer aquatics (with the likes of AdG) or sweeter scents? Or perhaps woody scents?

    Re: Best cologne for a night out?

    That's odd, because I've found that two sprays of L'homme is more than enough, and lasts 8+ hours on me.

    After today I've decided that L'Homme is no longer a daytime scent. Probably just reserve it more for nighttime.

    I suppose it's easier for me since I'm in college. It's all a matter of:
