    Default Trump not selling good

    Looking down the isle of my Wal-Mart I noticed that Trump's new fragrance was already on clerance. We have not even had it that long. I've also seen bottles at discounters.

    There's a reason why it's being pushed out of stores and into the deep discounters and Wal-Mart clearance racks of America.

    IT STINKS!!!

    well, its completely disappeared around here - not even discounted - GONE. I wouldn't say it stinks really, it more just kind of sucked. It would have actually been good if he endorsed and released a real stinker though!! It was all a joke anyway. Now Trump's dress shirt line, I really like *8-)

    It only recently started being sold down here. I can't say I was impressed.

    OK, I'll be the lone dissenter on this thread. A coworker bought me a discounted bottle for my birthday. I do wear it occasionally, and it's no worse than AdG, Chrome, Unbound, Higher, etc. In fact, my GF--who's smelled everything I own--likes it quite a bit.

    It's not bad. Smells like a junior level executive, not the top- dog, very clean and fresh. But not at all distinctive.

    Huge discount on FragranceNet for the next 5 hours. BUY if you want it. I paid way more than this from Perfumania.

    I doubt anyone would want to buy his empire even at clearance.

    Oh, heaven help me. Is it now mandatory that we all own the full set? "It's a wonderful series of colognes. Wonderful. Just wonderful stuff. It's really...wonderful." I'm not even sure I could do it as a novelty, and I have contemplated a celebrity frag sub-collection. But where would I store them all???

    Yep. Fragrances are logically in the same family as Pokémon - gotta collect 'em all. It's a rather implicit rule here at BN.

    Shouldn't the title be though, "Trump not selling well"?

    Well, maybe, if fragrances are something strictly to be collected. I express disdain at there seeming to be a run, currently, on moronic celebrity frags, like tRump's.

    I promise you that everything I wrote earlier was an attempt at tongue-in-cheek humor and not to be taken seriously. Despite having somewhat of a decent sized collection, I only purchase what I would wear more than once.

    Celebrity frags rarely tend to be in my decision process. Whomever wears it; great for them. If I cannot find myself liking it past the first few minutes of development, I just won't purchase it. I've like absolutely none of Trump's attempts at fragrances.

    Anything to do with Trump has a certain stigma attached to it now. I liked him when he was on Celebrity Apprentice but after he started his run for the Presidency and his extreme views and racism became known, it changed my opinion of him and at that point, there was no way I could support anything he does or buy anything with his name attached to it.

    Having said that, admittedly, I've never smelt his new fragrance but it could be so good that I orgasm from smelling it and still wouldn't buy it. I know that we're supposed to judge a fragrance on its own merit but in this case, there's no way I could be objective.

    always made my skin crawl. what some people are willing to idolize, lionize and legitimize never ceases to amaze me. i have recently come to thoroughly, and unapologetically, loathe about 35% of my fellow citizens. for liking fragrances like this, I mean.
