Thread: 3 Staple Scents

  1. #1

    Default 3 Staple Scents

    Hey guys,

    Much appreciation on my "clean scent" thread, it has actually opened my visibility to Gendarme. To which i have two questions:

    I have three scents that i switch on/off, based on the message/mood. If you had three scents to cover the following three categories what would they be:

    1. All Purpose - your default or sig scent (Mine is GIT)
    2. Power Play - when you want to kick in the doors and exude your confidence (Mine is Douro/Lords Penhaligons)
    3. Scent the Girls love - need i say more (1903 J. Peterman, go figure! every woman who i put a lineup together of scents always loves this the best)

    Regards,
    Nate

    Not that I know of. It's still listed on the YSL website along with the intense version. Also it can be found cheap at scentiments.com

    PS----I agree with SSSS on Chaleur de Animale. Glad to see there's another fan here. This is a really unusual, really sexy scent that doesn't get a lot of air time.

    Wow, it's amazing how my tastes have changed in the span of only 3 months. I guess it's time to update my answer.

    All purpose - Geir
    Power Play - A*men
    Scent the Girls Love - GIT (although I don't love it)

    By the way, I love how you bring back old threads dav-here. It's a really good topic that deserves an encore. Cheers
