    Re: SOTD: Sunday, April 28, 2013

    Perhaps rare to me only by market circumstance, definitely Tumulte by Christian Lacroix.

  2. Re: Ordered 5 colognes, dislike all of them, need advice please!

    People who blind buy need to have an open mind and realize they're going to end up with mostly fragrances that constitute a collection, not a wardrobe (there's a difference, one is a set you actually...
  3. Re: I've Never Listened To A Single Word From A Sales Associate

    The argument is pretty cut and dry to me. Salespeople in fragrance shops = knowledgeable. Salespeople in shops with more than just fragrances = somewhat knowledgeable. For me, I depend on my own...

    Alternative Men's Fragrance Takes

    Hello, a little bit of shameless bold self promotion.

    Last year I started a men's fragrance blog called The Whiff, which I hope gains a small audience I can kick it with. It's written completely...

    I'm always saying I'm somebody who isn't swayed by trendy packaging, but I have to say this is done tastefully and sticks to the Marc Jacobs style. I'm eager to see if my lady friends will be...
  6. Re: So I let 2 fragrance uneducated people pick my scent for evening

    Smells are subjective and not easily opened for discussion in this aggressive your taste vs. world's tastes manner. Standing around and smelling samples and forming your whole opinion based on that...
  7. Re: The difference between spraying fragrance up close, or far away? How far do you spray it?

    Definitely stay away from too close. What happens is the molecules will layer and you'll end up mixing top/middle/basenotes at simultaneous intervals. If they're not necessarily harmonious all at...

    Re: Best "Bang" for your buck

    Incidentally, I'd have to say my recent purchase of Marc Jacobs' Bang Bang. I'm in love with it and managed to get a good price at a duty-free.

    Re: Lucky You

    Lucky You is fantastic and definitely the best fragrance for those who prefer the grassier, less wooden side of greens. I love wearing it in springtime. It's definitely a more American (casuals from...
  12. Re: The fragance that is "always with you "," in your mind ' ', " you never forget " ( 1 )

    I have to say Be Delicious DKNY. I'm a sucker for fragrances that are casual, a tad bright and fruity (without going into the sport territory), and have just a bit of an upbeat fashionable edge with...

    Like I've said in my review, John Varvatos Star USA is indeed a very quiet scent but has its distinct clean depth. What comes to my mind when wearing it is the sensation of cool, polished black...

    Re: SOTD; Satureday, July 21st, 2012

    I'm tiring out of all of the fresh and lighter wood scents I've been using like clockwork in summer, so I'm going to boldly use something that's a bit unorthodox for a hot day with its fruitiness and...

  16. Re: Which fragrance do you spray the most at one sitting? Which do you spray least?

    Strangely I spray everything about 5 times regardless of what it is. The lighter scents and those with lower durability catch my attention for use when I'm wanting something lighter or not as lasting...
  17. Re: I sampled Brooks Brothers Classic and VR Spice Bomb

    I just ordered a full EDT of Spicebomb after a sample. Really impressed with the depth and the strangely perky character. Definitely a contender for awards in '13.

    It's a rainy late summer up in the northern extreme of the Pacific Northwest. Perfect time for cedar inspiration.

    Gucci Guilty Pour Homme is a winner in my book. It's not as versatile as other nominees but it's definitely got a profound aesthetic that warrants recognition.
