    Re: What Is Your Top 5 As Of Right Now?

    1. Aventus
    2. GIT
    3. Egoiste
    4. Platinum Egoiste
    5. Hanae Mori Him EDP
  10. Re: Fragrances that blew your mind when you first smelled them?

    For me Egoiste (2009), GIT and Aventus immediately come to mind. Aventus being the biggest surprise of them all as I really didn't think it could live up to all that hype but it did IMHO.
  11. Re: Why do so many men not like Chanel's Blue de Chanel?

    Yes and that's the sad part. People willingly accept mediocrity when that's all they know. Goes for everything in general these days.

    I have a sample around and wore it yesterday for the heck of it. Incredibly weak and no staying power in the slightest. Maybe the EDP version is better but I wouldn't pay a dime for the EDT.
