    Re: Fragrances that "WOW" you recently?

    You're going to think I'm crazy, but this cologne actually wowed me! Not sure if it's because it's so different from anything else I have or because it was $8 and I wasn't expecting much from it!...
  2. Re: What was your last full bottle purchase and why?

    Jovan White Musk for Men, 3.0 ounces. It gets great reviews and it cost $7.35 for a 3 ounce bottle.
