    Re: Millesime imperial clones

    It's not nearly as good, but someone spilled a bottle of Bod Silver in an aisle at walgreens, and it's another MI clone.

    I remember sampling it and I more or less got sunscreen, it could be a cheaper alternative to Fire Island by Bond No. 9 from what I've heard about Fire Island and can definitely be considered unisex....

  7. Re: Name a Perfume House which you like (nearly) ALL their offerings?

    Rochas and Viktor & Rolf would probably be the only two for me (as long as the scent isn't Le Parfum from V&R), but I only own one frag from each.

    Re: top 3 most OVERRATED scents.

    Jaipur Homme by Boucheron and
    Eau d'Orange Vert by Hermes
    both are pleasant enough, but way overhyped.

    Code by Armani
    terrible and incredibly overused

    Re: Something Similar to CK One Summer 2007?

    Would that be the men's haiku or the woman's haiku? It looks like the women's version is green and the men's is white.

    Something Similar to CK One Summer 2007?

    One of my first purchases when I really started getting in to fragrance was a 3.4 oz. bottle of CK One Summer from TJ Maxx (the red, yellow, and green version}, and I really enjoyed using it. It's...

    Re: Candy

    Oyedo by Diptique is a fruity candy one for sure, and I've seen reviews of M7 Fresh that describe it as candy-sweet. No first hand experience with that, though.

    Also, Anice by Etro reminds me of...

    Re: When you want something subtle?

    I turn to Cool Water Deep when I want to wear something that won't offend. It has a definite presence, but it's not "in your face" at all.

  15. Re: When did you start wearing colognes and what was your first scent?

    Two years ago, when I was sixteen, I was picking up some snacks at a convenience store and bought a 1.3oz bottle of Brut Revolution on a whim for about ten dollars. It's just an AdG clone, but it...

    I also picked up CK One Summer 2007, if nothing else it's a really cool bottle. I've also recently snagged 1 oz. bottles of OP Blend and Cool Water Game.

  19. How to find the target age group of a fragrance?

    Re: A*Men Pure Coffee Impressions

    I went to Nordstrom's today and tried out the tester. It smelled like coffee for sure, but it still isn't as smooth as Rochas Man. I've never sampled New Haarlem, so I can't really compare it to that.
