    Re: Spotted at Marshalls, TJ Maxx, Ross, etc. Vol. 3

    Agreed. I've owned/tried CH Men (vintage) and CH Prive and liked both but not enough to own. CH Men Sport is quite different but very good for a recent designer sport release.
  2. Re: What size bottle do you buy of your favorites?

    Go big or go home. Always get the biggest available. For me right now, that's 4.2oz bottles of LIDG PH and 3.4oz Prada Amber PH.
