    Re: A cautionary tale

    This was a fantastic 2 hours of sampling product--I thought the fact that we did it right across the street from Aedes (one of the most notorious pushers in town) showed some true chutzpah on our...

    lol creed thread.

    I'm kind of new--how many years have Creed threads all been tailspinning into the same generalized argument again and again?

    Re: Perfumes by amazon.com

    If it says "ships from Amazon.com" you're golden, if it says it ships from anyone else you're probably better off with fragrancenet, luckyscent, etc.

  15. Re: Summer Frag For guy Who Hates Summer Frags?

    I was actually trying to find the same thing. So far I'm really thinking a classic cologne structure and some of the nice light and sharp Vetivers are going to be it.

    Give your shirt a quarter spray? I picked up a shirt I put the tiniest dab of aventus on 9 days ago and still got a clear crisp whiff of it.

    A favorite vetiver scent around here is Chanel Sycomore. To my taste it is amazing. You might want to give it a shot.
