  1. How sweet is the latest Lapidus pour homme?

    Traumatised by Joop and Angel men. I don't know why but I think of diabetes when wearing both. On a scale of 1 to 10, with Angel Men being an 8, how sweet do you think Lapidus is?

  2. Re: Which fragrance garners the most COMPLAINTS when you wear it?

    Is Lapidus more floral or more piney?

    I've even heard it smells like urinal cakes and water.
