  1. Re: Today I finished my bottle of................

    Great thread!

    Recently finished my Beckham Homme which was a nice cheapie though I doubt I'll replace it. My Rochas Man. Live Jazz and Body Kouros are all very low and will be done within 6 months...
  2. Re: Armani Code has to be one of the most underrated fragrances.

    I like not love Code but overall I think Armani fragrances are underrated! Sure Code and Acqua Di Gio exploded but there other stuff is great also. I've also been very impressed Prive line.

    I think my thoughts align with basenotes pretty well as for my circle of friends however they don't have the same appreciation for Dior Homme as I do. Live Jazz is another one they don't 'get'

    2013 Dior Homme Cologne is gorgeous. I bought a bottle recently. I would recommend that before the original DHC. It also has crazy longevity on me for a light citrus/musk.

    They are all synthetic. The job of the perfumer is to make these synthetics smell natural the great noses can accomplish this... has gotten tougher to accomplish obviously with IFRA.
