    Profumum Antico Caruso - mini review

    I really enjoy this scent. Yes, it is a fairly straight forward Barbershop type scent and I'm also aware of the similarities to Le Male which is significantly less expensive. What I love about Antico...

    Re: Which Heeley?

    As others have suggested, MI and Sel Marin are not at all similar. I'd also add Heeley's Verveine to your list. It's a very clean minimalist scent that stays close to the skin but it's well grafted.

  22. Re: Question for the group? decant or whole bottles?

    Decants are the only way to go if you like a lot of variety. Buying decants allow me to experience frags that I normally wouldn't purchase a full bottle of.

    I may be interested in a decant of Malle's Geranium Pour Monsieur, particularly with Spring right around the corner. Another option would be Heeley's Verveine and/or Menthe Fraiche.
