  92. Re: Givenchy Pi & Yves Saint Laurent Pour Homme.

    If you want Pi, try to dig up the EdP version (yes, they make one). It's a bit less woodsy, but the longevity is striking and seems more well-blended.

    Re: L'Instant Edp. Where can I get it?

  97. Re: Thats the new MillÚsime Imperial bottle by Creed
