Hello - I'm pretty new to the frag world. Up until about a month ago I was the kinda guy who thought Acqua di Gio was what all the really cool kids wore. Sad, I know. Anyway, about a month ago I got turned onto Creed and, whoa, my life changed. Not just because Creed is so wonderful, but because as I started spending some time appreciating real quality frags, I realized there's this whole other world that I never knew existed! So, I've spent the last month frantically sampling and buying and sniffing, etc... . I've now got a bathroom countertop littered with bottles of this and that. I've already blown WAY too much money so after finding this site, I figured, heck, why don't I just ask the experts? The rundown of what I've accumulated so far is as follows; Creed GIT, MI, & RW. RL Purple Label. Canali pour Homme. JPG le Male (barf). Guerlain Vetiver, du Coq, & Habit Rouge. Azzaro Pure Lavender. YSL Rive Gauche. So, where do I go from here? What are the "essentials" I need to mature as a conosiour of fine frags? I'm so overwhelmed by all of this I'm gonna be broke in no time. Do I just need to slow down and smell the proverbial roses? I'm really looking to find a "signature fragrance." I'm not afraid of smelling a little feminine or a little butch. I'm just looking for something with a lot of character that every Joe's not familiar with. Something unique. So how do I go about this without breaking the bank? Any insider tips? Sorry for my rambling train of thought. So....thoughts?
