  2. Re: Tom Ford Neroli Portofino - something similar ??

    Give John Varvatos Artisan a sniff. It's a crowd-pleaser, and I've always considered neroli to be the signature note in this one. I wore it just last Saturday, in fact, and all I could think of all...

    My collection consists of products produced starting around 2009 and later. So while I do have some oakmoss classics, like Pour Monsieur and Eau Sauvage, my versions are far from vintage and the...

    To the best of my knowledge, Purple Label has not been discontinued. It's currently available on the Ralph Lauren website. (Sadly, Modern Reserve is no longer in production, though.)
  9. Re: New Fragrance: Dior Homme Eau for Men - Dior

    I see Eau as a good replacement for the original Dior Homme Cologne (2007). I am fortunate to have a bottle of the 2007 Cologne, and while I love it, performance it truly terrible. As we all know,...

  19. Re: Any fragrance similar to Jack Black's Turbo Wash?

    Jack Black's own JB Eau de Parfum is what you want. Dries down similar to T'erre d'Hermes but opens with a great eucalyptus blast, just like Turbo Wash.

    As most of us have realized, the word "sport" (or lack of it) on the label does not indicate whether something is a true sport scent. I love Lanvin L'homme Sport, but with its heavy patchouli base I...
