    Re: Is current dior homme fine?

    I have a newer formulation of DHI and it's totally fine. I did have a "newer" sample of the DH and it was also fine to me!

    Re: 2019 Fall Fragrances You Plan To Wear/Obtain?

    Whatever hits me from my own collection :D

    Potential obtaining one or two of the listed:

    P.R. 1 Million Prive
    V&R Spicebomb Extreme
    CH Men and/or Men Prive
    Gucci by Gucci PH
    Chanel Allure...
  100. Re: What are other perfumes in style of Tom Ford Noir Extreme?

    Well, if we talk about style then PR 1 Million and flankers of it. V&R Spicebomb and Spicebomb Extreme sort of fall into that category followed by Givenchy Gentlemen Only Absolute.

    Maybe this...
