    I would have to vote for SMW on this one...........but simply because of my personal preference.

    Musc Rav is a bit too cloying and sweet to me. I've never been a fan of the sweet musky scents, and...

    CK Eternity Summer 2008 is a good summer scent thats freshness is owed to a nice use of melon, IMO, instead of the usual citrus. Being a fan of citrus frags, I initially thought I would be...
