    Re: tainted scent cards

    I have had the same problem. When I went to the shop and took ALL Serge Lutens colognes on cards.
    I had like 12 or 13 paper strips in my pocket, by the time I went home they all smell almost the...

    Re: Bought a bottle of BASALA...

    Unfortunately I can't make many comparisons with more other fragrances because I don't own 100 colognes... :(
    But, among what I have, it resembles Allure Homme. But it's NOT as "sweet" and "warm"....

    Re: The Body Shop stuff.

    Will I think you just open the small bottle, let the oil drip on your fingers and dab it on your neck or other pulse point. It's so potent that you only need few drops and they will last all day....

    Bought a bottle of BASALA...

    Hey I've just bought a 50ml bottle of Basala by Shiseido after I read some positive reviews on this one.

  95. Re: If you had to choose: 3 Smoky/Sweet scents

    Yeah Bvlgari Black is very good, it's smoky and vanillic and not eccessively sweet. But you may not like that "rubber" note. Anyway I love that rubber note, after it grew on me, I no longer detect it...

  97. Re: That girl told me what I am wearing on the BUS

    Huahahah well, I got her number because of the passion for colognes! ;D

    Re: Ferre Eau de Cologne Bergamoto Marino

    I have a sample of it here, I like it, it's very particular, it smells kind of "leathery", but not that kind of "dirty" leather you would think. I can also detect melon in it.
    It's an odd scent but...
  99. That girl told me what I am wearing on the BUS!

    This is the most shocking episode in my "cologne-wearing-carrier" so far.

    Today I was wearing Bvlgari Black and went out.
    As I went on a bus, after like 5 minutes, a girl near me smiled at me and...

    A LOT of companies don't mention their old fragrances on their site, I dunno why...
