    For those of you that own Aventus, have you noticed a drop in compliments the longer you wear the fragrance. I'm not talking about longevity issues, but I feel as though I have been getting more...

    First of all, what they say about it is true. This is by far the most complimented fragrance I have ever worn. I have never gotten as many unsolicited compliments as I have with Aventus. With that...

    Re: Thoughts on Creed Himalaya?

    This one is very tricky. It smells very old-man (grandpa-like) on my skin. But it smells very good on my buddy. Risky blind buy, but you should try a sample if you can.

    If you were to break this down, it's not very expensive at all. The big creed bottle with the atomizer has 120ml, aproximately 720 sprays. If you were to use this every damn day, at 6 sprays a day,...

  24. Re: Which is more suitable for the winter: Silver Mountain Water or Aventus

    yeah, indoors isn't really a problem, its just that I wore SMW today and I feel as though the cold weather really killed the scent. I have no complaints about SMW in the spring/fall/summer.
