VC&A - Midnight in Paris
Versace The Dreamer
CK Shock (The drydown is lovely)
Adidas Fresh Impact
Quite liberal "dousings" of Florida Water and 4711 splashes which if sprayed would likely equal 10-12 sprays
Those are only ones I can think of
Hmm, tis a puzzlement indeed - It seems many have projection and longevity problems yet others do not, I fall into the "do not" group. I get about 7-8 hours on average, sometimes a bit less sometimes...
One of the ultimate "cheap and cheerfuls" at least IMO - I am always surprised by the number of compliments this has garnered over the years
It is a very nice list my faves of that group would be
Serge Lutens Chergui (cooler weather signature)
Bleu de Chanel (warmer weather signature)
Creed Millisime Imperial (been a long time...
Maybe for some, for me once I crossed the line, I pretty much never came back I need to cross back over a bit more now and then, there ARE some nice rich feminine things I do like. Some never cross...
Seems I am the lone dissenter so far, I greatly prefer Armani Code, but then, I am woman who likes to wear almost all men's scents, and women tend to like Code - so it just is par for the course I...
+1 MJ Legend - also MJ Flight and MJ Michael Jordan
Yes, I have experienced it some, not to a great degree though, I still like most things I used to like, but just don't stay only with them and have added to the list - sort of like a kid who only...
"Some believe it is only Great Power that can hold evil in check. But that is not what I have found. I have found that...
Yep, another good one
Layer Dior Farenheit with Tom Ford Tuscan Leather.
Yes, this is a definite good one
Everlast Original 1910 will come in way under £20 - Curve, and Curve Chill are both good for younger and will come in under 20 in fact you could get probably get Everlast and a Curve for under £20...
The aforementioned Fahrenheit - OR a combo of a fairly liberal application of Dirty English, with a base layer of AXE Music (yes, just try it) and a drop or two of a good Patchouli oil in the center...
Get the Acqua di Gio now and the London in the Fall - both are great and both get compliments - you just can't go wrong with either one.
The original Curve - women LOVE it - full stop I won't say ALL women but a very high number of them do, of all ages
Curve Crush - I find this one best on cooler days - have gotten random compliments...
Here are some I like in several price ranges
Horizon-Guy LaRoche - cheap but not cheap smelling
Penhaligon's Castile - kind of expensive
Burberry Brit - mid range
Eau Sauvage - higher mid...
I seldom buy higher cost scents, and to me and my income, Bleu qualifies as one. I had to think about it a bit, I just don't have them that high on the priorities list budget wise, I have to REALLY...
That Minajesty may just be the winner - myself - I find the Fierce Bottle repulsive
Hadn't decided what to wear yet today, the mention of Jeanne Arthes in another thread helped me decide
I say too, get it - I have only 5 of theirs but all the ones I have are quite decent for the price.
I get at least one compliment every time I wear that stuff - seriously
good suggestion, also the directory on here can give you some good insight too - then just go to places and try some things and/or order a few samples to give you an idea what you like
Eau Sauvage or if I had it (I want it) Penhaligon's Castile
A friend of mine used to wear that most of the time many years ago and on him it smelled positively divine
"Not to get into a big discussion about spending money- yadda yadda, but I do think that you come to a point when you are spending $50-80 for mediocre scents that you don't really wear vs. a really...
The only Burberry that gets mentioned often is London - truthfully, I have several of the Burberrys, London, Touch, Brit and Weekend (don't currently have "For Men" but have had it in the past) and...
Versace The Dreamer
Van Cleef and Arpels -Midnight in Paris
All of these are quite nice, all affordable and all are "women pleasers" A lot of women DO like Fierce...
Forgot about Mustang, may wear that one soon
A lot of the Cubas and Cubano Gold, the Paris Hiltons are dirt cheap now I like Just Me and Heir, Aqua Velva Musk - cheap as chips and draws compliments, some of the Jeanne Arthes stuff - ones I...
Incomplete is a good way to put it
yeah, the "Ummm yeah, I like dis" ones that drag on for 12 minutes are annoying as are the 8 minute vids with 5 minutes of that being devoted to "unboxing", discussing the box, the bottle and the cap...
It's very rare that I don't wear something and it's almost never that I forget, it is part of simply getting myself together, getting dressed etc. On those very rare times I have on nothing at all I...
Very close game Legend wins by a point - for better longevity
Paying a lot for Barbershop "vibe" I think is different - and if you have the money to spend at will - then go for it
+1 on Bleu de Chanel it seems to be a "year rounder", never offensive and a compliment getter as well - also Eau Sauvage is nice especially in the spring and summer.
^^^This - "barbershop" is VERY seldom true to form if it is a high price scent - unless of course one frequents the sort of "barbershop" that is more commonly known as a "Studio". I personally LOVE...
"Perhaps The Dollar Store/Poundland should not be your first store of choice for obtaining fragrances"
One I have thought several times but never used - "Just get some Curve, AdG and Fierce and call your High School Years done fragrance wise"
Good old reliable, any weather, any day Curve
Go to Ross and start sniffing if you can - some of the above suggestions are good ones, take notes and try to find some of them - also try Tommy Bahama Set Sail St. Barts and maybe CK Shock, other...
I believe the pleasant scent you are getting from it comes from Peruvian balsam, but you probably already read the ingredients - I guess try some scents that have some balsam in them and you may get...
I won't say the new Obsession "sux" but the old one, from what I can remember anyway, did seem deeper and richer - the new is ok, I like it and many women like it. I got compliments on it "back in...
I agree it is in general woman, most women I know like and buy cologne/perfume etc many of the men do not or they have only 1 or 2 things often gotten as gifts from female companions or female...
I actually read somewhere it was being discontinued too, but I can't remember where - but it wasn't here
I think I would just go online if I were you and get a back-up bottle or two - I found some 30ML bottles at Gordmans for $29.99 so picked up 2 of them as back-ups. I am SURE that will last me along...
A little chilly, rainy, damp, yeah, good day for London
They are all nice, I have only worn 2 of them 4711, have it and Mugler - (From a sample) but am familiar with Bergamotto Marino and am simply trusting on the Tom Ford one - If you are on a budget -...
I remember that one
Don't forget the urinal cake note
"But that _____ (fill in the blank) topnote just kills it for me" - (that note lasts maybe 4 minutes by the way and chances are good no one but that person will ever actually smell it)
another "plane theme" one I like from them is "Jet Lag"
I love this stuff - saw a bottle, yes just one, at TJ Maxx a while back and tried it - went home, waited, kept sniffing and yep - was gonna go get it the next morning, but alas, it was gone - I...
And, now, from the cheap seats there wafts the scent of
Hey, I like it and it smells good :smiley:
another Yes to Set Sail St. Barts
1 KC Reaction
I think the cheapies I mentioned or Mugler cologne may be best for you then - they go well with jeans and t-shirts
Next HOT day I'm going to try the Bleu de Chanel been hearing it's good in hot weather from several of you guys I got it late last fall so have not tried it in the summer yet
2 cheapes that I find work well are Yachtman Blue and Adidas Pure Game also Nautica Voyage or an Adidas "smells similar to Voyage" called Fresh Impact. Penhaligon's Castile is another good one IMO...
Dangerously cheesy, and aged cheddar, no less.
I can definitely see this included in the itinerary if I go to Versailles - what a fabulous labor of it seems, love - I do hope they can get the continued funding they need
OK I am not a British Sterling fan, it's a "semi-classic" that I really do not care much for except the VERY last whiffs of it (I Like powder) BUT, IF the back of my hand continues to smell this good...
First off, Endymion is one of my very favorite scents, you would not go wrong in any way (IMO) getting some it's simply delightful - second as hednic said, the one spray thing seldom does much unless...
I have not worn Bleu de Chanel in the Summer yet, got it in the Fall of last year, but I think I will likely wear it some this Summer - others I like in the Summer are:
I agree with most of the above let me add Michael Jordan - the one that is just Michael Jordan and Tommy Bahama Set Sail St. Barts (I have gotten compliments from HS age girls and early 20s women...
I may have to drop by CVS, even though I have said no more purchases for a while, 5 bucks is nothing - if it's still that cheap.
All 3 were cheapies (surprise surprise) Brut Dominant, Everlast and Jeanne Arthes Supercharged
I don't have Herrera for Men but have smelled it - it IS quite nice indeed and fits the description of what you want. For a low cost alternative that is short on the woody but otherwise fits - Try...
Sort of the same here - the Mascolino is an almost perfect match for AdG and I even use it as a "base" for the AdG it seems to increase the longevity without altering it any. Also the BOD Fresh Guy...
or use it for air freshener or car scent
I have only dated a few that like the "heavy stuff" too but there have been a few. Most, however, like the safe stuff -, luckily, so do I for the most part, but I do love deep patchouli and I...
Cuba Las Vegas is my 3rd fave after Gold and Red - give it a try - had 2 women smell these 3 and the older one (mid 40s) liked the Gold the best and the Red second and the Las Vegas 3rd - the younger...
I admit I was being jaded and personalizing it somewhat - and I agree people can become accustomed to unfamiliar things and even start lking them if they are presented in small "doses"
Yeah, I don't think size matters either, I think personality can to a degree though
Should point out that men are fully capable of pulling the princess act, too. I've seen it plenty of times in both men and women, unfortunately.
As did I. It often goes far beyond kvetching about what colognes you wear. First it's "I don't like that" (with a scent) then it's you can't cook onions in the house, or cabbage or garlic or...
