    Re: Know Any Allergy Fakers?

    CJ's brother's ex sounds like a faker, too - might even be she felt attracted to him and had to make a great show of proving she wasn't.

    I'm paranoid about becoming (or being) a faker. Not sure...

    Aw, come on Spicemeister! You could do like Michael on the office, wear a MissTery suit with no butt pockets, and bust darts.

  10. Re: Smelled it again...that horrid, powdery sweet, marine men's cologne - what is it?

    That's the reaction I have to Blue Water (Davidoff). I finally found out what it was by asking a guy on the street.

    Re: Looking for a nice fig scent

    Exactly! The unpredictability of scents IRL really gets me. On the card, Higo smelled like a fabulously figgy fruit salad. On me, it might come out smelling like Lysol.

    one scent for summer - just one

    I've got Etra (Etro) on right now, and on my skin it's all spice, not sweet (as some get, per their reviews). Depends on how it works on your skin - it's worth a try.
