    I would think twice about the Trussardi or the Yatigan. I like your choice to go with no tie, given the environment.

    This is one of those situations where even a little fragrance can be too much....

    Re: Any thoughts on L'Artisan's Timbuktu?

    So, to recap, Indieguy finds that Timbuktu evokes a black woman wearing gold and eating donuts. Not the strangest assoiations to a fragrance - and somehow fitting. I don't get the "donut note" from...

    Re: Any good green tea fragrances?

    Whoops. Didnt see your response above. The cologne is quite like the soap, but with a more pronounced lemon note. If you like the soap, you will likely enjoy the cologne.

    I usually like woody scents, but I thought this was a just another boring mainstream not-too-offensive fragrance. I have other thinks in that vein that I like better.
