    Re: Creed MI vs. SMW

    50 bucks for a 4 oz Creed? Hmmm... suspicious. Beware of fake Creeds on eBay.
  2. Re: OK ... which would be the top 5 creeds to try?

    LOL. If Kouros were made by Creed, it wouldn't stink like hell. Creed knows how to tame their fragrances.

    Sticky: Re: Your most complimented frags this year from the opposite sex

    I guess you have the same issue (or non-issue) as mine, only that mine is with GIT. I think it's just natural for this to happen... our noses become too accustomed to our regular fragrance that our...

    Re: Creed MI vs. SMW

    SMW.

    Like some of you, I also thought SMW was a bit too feminine on test card. But on skin, it just smelled magnificent and truly unisex. Whichever it is that lingers around a minute from...
  5. Re: the continued pursuit for 'the holy grail' of perfume

    There is no such thing. Otherwise, the perfume industry will be doomed.

  7. Unisex Scents That Lean Toward Masculine

    I partly depends on body chemistry, that's a given, but in your experience which unisex fragrances smell masculine on YOUR skin, and which ones just tend to smell too feminine?

    For example, I just...

    No, never. If I did dream about fragrances, I'd be starting to doubt my sanity. LOL.

    Re: Kouros-What have I been missing??

    Kouros is too "risky" for me... in a sense that I like it personally, but I fear that a lot of people around me would be offended by its smell, given the mixed reactions it normally gets. In a local...

    Re: Creed: Why "Millésimes"?

    And if Creed is really high-quality as it's purported to be, then it's a must that the overall scent should not deviate by a noticeable degree from the original year's release, and year to year. One...

    Re: NEW: Chanel Allure Homme Edition Blanche

    Hmmm... can't wait to try this. I've been a fan of the entire Allure Homme line, and honestly think that Chanel has a good point in leveraging the Allure branding for this new, seemingly (based on...
  18. Poll: Re: Why aren't all natural perfumes talked about more?

    I live in a place where even Hermes is not available from shops, and niche brand Creed is sold in only ONE shop, so I guess it's a real long shot that one can find those ultra-exclusive stuff here.

    How do you know your millesime if you have the spray bottle (30mL through 120mL, not the bigger flasks without sprayer)? I have a theory... look at the lot number printed at the back towards the...

    A lot of people overdo the application of fragrances, and unfortunately GV is one of those that you should wear in moderation if you don't wanna offend. Some noses are more sensitive than others.
