  1. Chanel Allure made in USA, not France??

    Just returned home with my new bottle of Allure Homme (my first Chanel), and noticed that the box says "Made in USA". I guess I just assumed it was made in France, as is everything else I own ( YSL,...

    Varvatos vs. Polo Double Black

    Please compare + contrast. By John Varvatos, I mean original, not Vintage.
    I plan to buy one or the other. I like both, and find them similar in some respects.

  8. Re: Frag for a warm night, suit and tie.....

    Thanks to all......

    Any designer / accessible......i.e. Macy's Sephora recommendations?

    I'm not opposed to a niche purchase but given the timeframe a local designer frag would be prudent.

  9. Re: Frag for a warm night, suit and tie.....
