  1. Re: Getting really awful longevity with Bleu de Chanel

    While I do not have Bleu de Chanel, I will say that what M.T. states in his post immediately above, has happened to me with many fragrances. It probably sounds crazy, but many times I get a new...

    My wife doesn't like anything I wear; and I have mostly mainstream designer stuff. Generally, I wash off my fragrance before bedtime. It's a bit of a drag, but what are you going to do? She's a good...
  3. Re: Two fragrances that have me constantly smelling my wrist. YSL Rive Gauche, and Azzaro Pour Homme

    Those are two good ones. I slightly prefer Azzaro, but Rive Gauche performs much better.

    Not my first cologne, but the first one I loved was Sandlewood for Men by Elizabeth Arden. My office use to smell of it.

    Re: Back up Bottles.

    One each of:

    Terre d' Hermes
    Grey Vetiver
    Encre Noire
    Viaggio d'Africa

    Been thinking about getting another Terre, but I've been fighting off the impulse.
  6. Re: TERRE d'HERMES: 9 batches comparison REVIEW

    Excellent research and information. Terre d'Hermes is my favorite fragrance and I'm happy to see your results. I do think that often times the reformulation hysteria is over blown. Thanks.

  16. Re: What is your favorite designer (or niche) house for scents?

    I would have to say Chanel. I have four at the moment and will probably be getting a fifth soon. I find a lot of Chanel fragrances to be elegant and a great "bang for the buck!"
