  1. Re: What Is The Fragrance You Detest The Most

    Bulgari Black.

    Burning rubber and vanilla. Like a used condom shot across the room, which lands on a lit vanilla incense candle.

    bleh.

    Re: Frags from Marshalls/Tj Maxx

    Grey Flannel is a handful. I'm frightened of it and attracted to it at the same time. For such a timeless classic, and being so inexpensive, it was a blind-buy for me, but I sort of wish I'd tried...

    Re: Spotted at Marshalls, TJ Maxx, Ross, etc. Vol. 3

    That Nautica deal is available online from walmart.

    Nautica Original, Voyage, or Blue, all 3.4 oz, $14.

    Good deal. Available only online, I think.

    You have to search thru - they still have...
  4. Re: Has a comment here ruined -or- enhanced a fragrance experience for you?

    Generally, I put weight into reviews from those who've written a lot of them (Foetidus and the like), and who share my opinion on some key frags. I'll use them as a basis for blind-buys. I find...

    Re: LEMON suggestions

    If you want to keep it really inexpensive, look into Claiborne Sport. You can buy a big bottle of it, and still have enough left over for something more expensive. Great for (very) casual wear. ...
  6. Re: Secretions Magnifique - a review reviewed

    I've not tested SM, but on your opinion of enjoying 'natural' smells more than Americans, I'll say this: I'm almost 40, born and raised in Southern California, lived here all my life. I've spent...

    Re: Better options than British Sterling

    Yes, I actually like the makeup of British Sterling, though I associate it with my father, so I can't picture wearing it myself. But I can see why he's stuck with it for so long - it's solid.

    I...

    Re: Better options than British Sterling

    This is my main concern, but I'm willing to drop some coin to see if he might be pleasantly surprised. Thanks for the more specific breakdown of the notes/accords in BS.

    Re: Better options than British Sterling

    This is true, but he's also the kind of guy that just never bothered to try anything else. I can't imagine him standing at a fragrance counter at a Nordstroms, sampling fragrances. I'm a bit that...

    Better options than British Sterling

    My father's worn British Sterling for 30 years or more, and I'm looking to offer him a better alternative, or at least an alternative at all. It's all he's ever bought. Any suggestions? Similar...

    Re: Halston 1-12

    1-12 smells a lot like Grey Flannel to me, and I prefer it to GF during the drydown, where 1-12 starts to echo the Z-14 drydown, and not the bitter-powder note that GF has on me.

    If you like the...

    Re: Nautica Original/Classic, Any Fans?

    Great on a warm or hot day, especially out of the shower. I think of it as a good casual-wear scent, one I'm not worried about over-applying. Safe. Smells good, and is quite inoffensive. ...
  14. Re: looking for a "cheap" masculine scent that women will love

    If you're looking to see how cheap you can go and still garner attention from the ladies, why not give good old Pierre Cardin Pour Monsieur a try? Find some spare change in your car and pick up a...
