  2. Re: A good, every day, year around niche scent (no Bond or Creed)

    I like Lubin's Le Vetiver's line for a versatile, year round experience that won't cause your wallet to grieve too much. I don't think you can go wrong with either Itasca or Bluff, although I am a...
  3. Re: Jubilation XXV horrible longevity and sillage

    My most recent sample of J XXV was purchased from Lucky Scent about 6 weeks ago. I get a full business day out of it, although it is reduced to a skin scent in about 3 - 4 hours.

    Re: The Most Sexiest Male fragrance around

    Last week, a complete (very attractive) stranger said: "Ooh, you smell really good. What are you wearing?"

    Re: Most Elegant Vetiver?

    I don't know if this could be classified as a true Vetiver per se, but the one that's always captured my attention, and is very classy in an aristocratic, old world sort of way is Lubin's Itasca.
