  1. Poll: Re: Do you make distinctions between frags you wear during the day and night?

    I tend to prefer very powerful frags which I'll apply in the morning and enjoy until bedtime, so maybe I appreciate a good drydown in the evening. No specific frags for night though, unless maybe it...

    Re: The one that got away?

    I would have avoided most of the gourmands I purchased and gotten Incense Avignon, Aoud Cuir D'Arabie and Rose 31. I don't beat myself up too much about my early purchases, it just took me a while...
  3. Re: Can women really distinguish expensive cologne?

    You can get compliments from stick deodorant if it projects enough. I was complimented once while wearing Old Spice Showtime and a friend of mine is frequently complimented on Old Spice Swagger. If...
  4. Re: What does the term "synthetic" constitute?

    I think the term "synthetic" is often used as a catch-all for disagreeable perfume traits, and it's sometimes used as a lofty way of putting a fragrance down. Rather than say a perfume seems bitter...

    Re: I have a Game - Dress me in a scent.

    The first fragrance that came to mind was Tonka Imperiale, maybe because it's refined enough to go with the urban attire and it lets others know that, despite your "alternative" look, you're still...

    Re: EC Looks to Ban Three Fragrance Ingredients

    Maybe the "oversprayers club" has the right idea. Give 'em an inch, they take a mile.

    Re: Worst cologne you've ever smelled???????????

    Interesting responses. I'm repulsed by cloying smells more than body odor or the like, which is why Tobacco Vanille is the closest thing to a scrubber that I have worn. Aoud Cuir D'Arabie is one of...
  8. Re: Could my bottle be damaged from the winter cold?

    I've had mailed bottles sit out in the cold with no problem. I haven't noticed any scents go bad with extreme temperatures, but leaky caps can cause evaporation even at room temp. That's the only...

    Re: What a load of BS

    Agreed. I've been burned by variations a few times when upgrading from decant to full bottle, from various houses. Most of the time though, I haven't noticed a difference.

    As far as Creed goes,...

    Re: Fragrance houses you generally dislike

    Out of the four or five Tom Ford scents I've tried, I couldn't get into his stuff. He seems to take a nice concept and ruin it with a heavy handed approach.

    Re: Montale?

    It's difficult to say. There are still a lot of reports of good bottles, and there have been reports of 50ml bottles that are substantially weaker. I'll probably test my luck in the future with a...

    Re: Bvlgari Man

    It's really not bad, but it could be better. I might be going on a limb here, but if you like this one, Dark Aoud might be worth a try. It's less sweet, but it does bear some similarity in my mind.

    Re: Is it just me or does Tobacco Vanille.....

    It is a compliment getter, to be sure, but I think it's gross. It smells as if the tobacco was added to mask the excessive sweetness.

    Re: what do u think of a flowery scent on men?

    Flowers smell too good to be relegated to a single gender. What I'd really like to find is a lilac-dominant "masculine" fragrance.

    Re: rose cologne for men a do or dont.?

    I agree on both counts. I would get a decant or, if you like Noir de Noir that much, maybe you could get a very small decant to get you by while you save up for a full bottle.

    Re: Smoothest scent you own

    Tom Ford's Noir de Noir is the smoothest thing I have in my opinion, but I prefer scents with a little harshness.

    I would like to be added to the Aventus split, provided there is a spot left.
