    Re: What Is Your Most Wanted Fragrance?

    Vintage Rive Gauche, its getter rarer and rarer.
  6. Re: How have your tastes evolved since getting into fragrances?

    I agree with this very much too. It is sad though its taken about 50 purchases or more to realize what I like to wear any time I feel like reaching for it.
  7. Re: How have your tastes evolved since getting into fragrances?
