Now here's a borderline frag, that you definitely have to like very citrus floral light sharp femi type frags to appreciate Habit Rouge.
Worst blind buy yet for me since I gave $80 for it and it's awful even after 6-8 wearings.......awful !
This is a Dandy/Gay frag. Straight guys who pull this frag off have big cojones
Well, dammit! I like Habit Rouge, especially in winter and I'll have you know that I've slept with more women than all you bast --oops, sorry got carried away.
Don't worry, I have similar feelings towards M7, JHL, and other popular scents as you do towards HR. And no, Egoiste is not considered a gay frag unless you listen to a Judy Garland or Bette Midler song while wearing it.Egoiste
is sweet accord--and apparently some folks believe that a man's frag has to be pungent and spicy to get a high rating on the macho-meter.
This hypothesis works quite well provided one is referring to "Vintage "Tabarome, Jean Patou PH. Macassar,-- or many of the powerhouse frags from the 80's when men were men!
( Unless they were Oakmoss )
But fails miserably when it praises over the top stink bombs like Quorum ahead of Egoiste.
Mind you, as usual this is simply my personal, subjective and infallible opinion.
Unfortunately Habit Rouge
has been reformulated ( I know what the hell hasn't?) so I don't know what version of the EDT you got--last time I bought it I had to return it the next day even though I tested 3 different bottles prior to purchase.
Yes, they're a very understanding store (they should be, I've dropped enough money there!) And though the bottles looked identical the juice varied widely and ultimately none of them smelled quite right. Not even the one I took home *sob*
(NO, boys and girls this is NOT
a CREED thread; it's about something far less controversial and inflammatory, your sexuality)
So, permit me an update on my particular brand of perversion ( highly intelligent and crazy women)
I offer the following advice for my fellow hetero males by updating an old post of mine:" What kind of woman
do you really want to attract:
BABE MAGNETS AND THEIR 'MISSION STATEMENT'
--If she's into leather. * Smells so bad, she's got to be a masochist! * *
* Whip me, *beat me, *make me write bad checks---- *
2. CREED'S ROYAL ENGLISH LEATHER
----But do so with elegance and finesse.
3. OLD SPICE
--Her grandpa or her father probably wore it at some point. (see also Aramis, Brut, etc.) So, smell like him! So many women still want to sit on daddy's lap.
4. BOWLING GREEN
---Especially if he wore tassel loafers, voted conservative and played golf.
5. JEAN PATOU POUR HOMME
-- Hot Damn! How many bottles does he have? Her father's loaded! Marry her, quick!
6. VERSACE DREAMER. Mission statement: * I'm a poet, with a poet's brooding melancholy . . . *
7. VERSACE by VERSACE: *I laugh at poets and losers. I'm rich, *ruthless in business, grey around the temples, and I once fired Donald Trump. *
8. ROMA UOMO
-- You are unapologetically masculine, she'll rip your clothes off. NOW!
9. LE MALE
-- Or queer eye for the straight guy; the cologne bottle design episode. You rejoice in your feminine side--
(any): ---And so you could buy a boutique together and live happily ever after *
(any)--Except you've just been evicted from your trailer park. *Good! *See if she comes through for you and lets you move in rent free.
12. MUSC KUBLAI KHAN
---Cut to the chase, you only want her if she's an erotically frenzied wildcat. *
: But If she likes this atrocity, she's even more perverted than you imagined. Run awaaaayyy! *
Freud would have thought you stuck in the oral/narcissist phase, but what did he know? He should have paid you for counseling. She better compliment your sweet/tarred magnificence and pick up the dinner tab as you surreptitiously smell yourself.
15. ROCHAS MAN
--- Or A*men Redux. An improvement over that de-caf hype. Still, it's so chocolate shake that you might attract jailbait. Check I.D. and have a *a good lawyer handy.
16. PIPER NIGRUM:
Redundant if you're a waiter in an Italian restaurant, but otherwise a masterpiece of seduction by LV. Think of it ! You'll smell like a *wonderful dish of linguini with olive oil. *How many millions of women want to break their diet? Can't miss.
(Just remember you're also the prey)
Don't say I didn't warn you.
