  1. Re: Have you ever worn a scent you thought was great...

    LOL @ all the great stories - thanks to all for sharing! I noticed a trend in "bug spray" comments - that's interesting! I personally don't recall ever encountering any fragrances that smelled like...
  2. Re: Have you ever worn a scent you thought was great...

    Wow, it's been a long time since I last smelled Drakkar Noir on anyone. Seems like no one wears it anymore. It used to be so big in the 80s, and it really wasn't that bad. Just a victim of its own...

    Re: Name your best incense cologne.

    Me three for C&S's Frankincense & Myrrh! Not really an incense fan and this frag is light and pleasant enough that I can enjoy it all day without feeling overpowered.
  4. Re: What is your top 3 longest lasting colognes?

    I had a traumatic experience with Black Tourmaline (this is one of those "not in a good way" responses :)) - only two little spritzes from a sample vial, and it Would Not Go Away. Took almost 3 days,...

  7. Re: Have you ever worn a scent you thought was great...

    LOL! Great stories, thanks for sharing guys!

    I've never had any obvious positive or negative reactions from other people myself, but then again I guess most people would not feel comfortable...
  8. Re: Have you ever worn a scent you thought was great...

    I'm guessing no responses means this has never happened to anyone before! :)

    In that case let me reverse the question:

    Have you ever worn a scent you didn't think was that great, and then found...
  9. Have you ever worn a scent you thought was great...

    and then realized from reactions or comments that other people really didn't like it?

    If so, what was the scent, and what were the responses like?

    And did you ever try it again after that? :)

  10. Re: have you ever been identified by a fragrance?

    haha, yes. for a long period when i was using the same scent all the time, i would get comments like "oh, i knew it was you, that's your smell!" not anymore, i switch around too much nowadays! :)
