    Re: JV Artisan Pure vs Prada L'homme

    In all my years John Varvatos Artisan Pure is the only gratuity sample I've received in an order that turned me on to a new scent so much that I bought it. I'd never even heard of John Varvatos.

    I guess it's between Fleur Musc and l'Absolu, but I'm really happy with them all.
  10. Re: Name the fragrance you tried/smelled today for the first time. (Feminine fragrances edition!)

    Me, too. I have six NR scents. I love a good musk base. I'm not much interested in the Pure notes, however, and I don't want to get redundant, so that may be all my NRs for a while.
