    Re: Stupid questions...

    From what I've read, temperature changes and light are the worst enemies of fragrance. I keep mine in a small box in the fridge. I have a few too many bottles, so it's gonna be a while before I get...

    Re: Best scent ever

    I'm such a newbie. So far I'd have to say, Paris Hilton for men. I kid, I kid. In my sheltered experience, I think Narciso Rodriguez is the best on my skin so far. I have so much to learn.

    Re: Dislike of Brit

    I think you're right about the powdery sweetness and floral turning me away from it. I don't mind powder, or floral scents for that matter. I really can't think of a sweet scent that I am fond of. ...

    Dislike of Brit

    I bought a 3.4 of Brit blindly late last year. I was really looking forward to trying it out since I loved London. Lo and behold, I can't tolerate it on my skin. I can't put my finger on exactly...

    Re: Bulgari Black

    Varvatos is weird on my skin. I get this coconut sort of background smell when I wear it. Not a bad frag at all, I just don't think I can wear it too often in the hotter months. Kinda reminds me...

    Re: Let's Talk About Bulgari Aqua

    I happen to be wearing Aqua as my SOTD today. I like that it isn't as popular as some of the other "mainstream" aquatics out there. The longevity on me lasts 8-10 hours, which I think is fantastic. ...

    Re: Bulgari Black

    I just love bulgari black. Of all my frags, it's the one that I can wear pretty much any time. Just the other day, I was gathering my dirty laundry and I picked up a t-shirt from the basket. As I...

    Re: What's the best Bad Boy frag?

    I just saw the Superdevil and laughed root-beer out of my nose-holes.

    Mr. Badass likely smells of Brut and stale cigarettes.

    Alright! My four Creed samples finally arrived today from TPC. Here are my first impressions. The first one I tried was Himalaya. It started off a lot like Eternity (to me anyhow) but then the...

    Really stupid question here

    Okay, here it is. What is the point of a top note if it just disappears after a short while anyhow? I have two fragrances that don't really change much at all. Bulgari Black and Allesanrdo Dell...

    But seriously, maybe if I can get him to bite on something that I know he likes, he'll throw the axe away. The OZONE will thank him.
