  1. Re: At first sniff you recoil in horror... then come back...

    Habit Rouge for me. I couldn't get over the camphor in the top notes. But I began to warm up to it after a few wearings. It takes a special frame of mind for me to make it a SOTD, but I genuinely...
  2. What scent do you prefer after the perfect shave?

    I just finished a great Sunday morning shave with my straight and Trumper's Rose soap. I threw on some Grafton by Truefitt & Hill, I feel like a million bucks! What's your favorite scent after a good...

    Re: Best Aftershave (unscented)

    I found I was getting breakouts using unscented AS's with lots of moisturizers. My skin can get really angry depending on how careful I am with my DE, but this one has become my favorite!

  4. Re: Any BN's into wetshaving? Straight razor or double edged?

    I'm using a merkur 38c, the pilot heads were too aggresive for my face. I recommend a merkur because the heads are more forgiving, only if I stop paying attention will I cut myself. My suggestion is...

    Re: Abandoned buildings

    How 'bout 10 sprays of Rive Gauche, so we can find you if you get lost?
  6. Re: Your latest fragrance comment by others; positive or negative

    I was at the gym lifting with a buddy of mine. As we were walking he said "Wow, it smells like that laser tag place in here. Oh, it must be the dust from the construction."

    My scent of the day was...
  7. Poll: Re: HM Vs. Eau Fraiche Vs. L'Eau Par Kenzo Vs. Versace Homme

    I really enjoy L'eau par Kenzo on warm days. To me it is a very bright and uplifting scent. Longevity and projection might be on the light side, but tbh, I think that is a plus for considering what...

    Re: unfair to cool water

    I agree with the longevity comments about Cool Water. I'm a bit too young to have experienced the vintage formulation, but I think I'll be giving my bottle away. I was proud to make it my poorman's...
  9. Re: need help finding a fall signature / office fragrance..

    I doesn't get much love around here. But if you can find a cheap bottle of Gucci by Gucci, the folks in my office really like it on me. It isn't the perfect frag by any means, but I get reasonable...

    Re: Your favorite gourmands??

    I am really enjoying Lolita Lempicka au Masculin...boozy licorice. Cheap and sweet, its a bit of a guilty pleasure.
  11. Re: Just bought some new scents - what do you think/what should I add

    A nice, classy iris maybe? I've found Habit Rouge to be fairly easy to wear.
  12. Re: Are they worth a buy blind ? - Live Jazz , Izod , VSC man eau fraiche

    Another on for Live Jazz....

    This frag truly feels refreashing whenever I wear it. Makes me feel like I stuck my head in a cool crisper filled with grapefruit, rhubarb, and mint.

    Re: TODAY I BOUGHT - July 2012

    Popped into a shop on a whim on my way home to check if they had it. The box was sitting on top of the counter at a discount like they knew I was coming. This was meant to be!

    Re: YSL Live Jazz: Worth a blind buy?

    I find Live Jazz to be like putting your head under the vegetable misters at the grocery store. My first blind buy and I couldn't be happier.

    Vertiver des Sables by Montale? It's a light, comforting vetiver with some mild spices.

    I'm wearing the dreamer right now, fantastic! It smells like a fluffy tobacco pillow. Wasn't able to sample Egoiste, even Holt Renfrew didn't have it.

    Re: A scent for spring evenings?

    The notes seem very appealing for The Dreamer, tobacco is a winner to me. Would it be safe as a blind?

    Whoa, I have so much to try now, thanks! Oh one more thing, does leather fit well with many spring scents? I think I remember it in Aventus, or maybe just the smokiness that did the trick.

    Sycomore eh? Fragrantica shows that as a women's scent, which throws me off because I see it mentioned here with regularity. It's been on my mind to try but I would have been nervous strutting up to...
