  10. Re: First Creed. Aventus bought online. Is it real?

    Yeah man it'd be hard to fake a bottle like that from the box all the way down to the digitized lot number at the bottom. If it were a fake, it'd likely be fake juice in a real bottle.

    Re: Whats similar to Tom of Finland?

    Yeah the thing with Tom of Finland is there aren't many other leather scents that are that powdery and leathery at the same time.
  35. Re: how do you decide which fragrance is next to own?

    Buy a bunch of samples. Decide I dislike or are ambivalent to most of them. Put the one's I really like on a to-buy list. Buy later when opportunity arises.

  42. Re: VC&A Midnight In Paris: EDT versus EDP?

    Does the EdP come in anything other than 4.2oz? I'll be much more interested in this scent if the EdP has a 1.7/2.5/3.3oz option.

  48. Re: What are your thoughts on Mark Birley's offerings?

    I don't like MB, but I enjoy Charles Street. I haven't bought a bottle of it, but if I did it would be for wearing around people who "don't like fragrances" so I can be as subtle as possible.

    Oh, completely agree. I always give extra points for cool bottle design.

    Because maybe I forgot to factor in something important, such as their longevity or their annoying ad campaign or their variance.
