    Default 2 blind purchases

    I'm dissapointed with both, but I only payed $10 each at Marshalls.

    Lanvin - Oxygen Pretty standard modern fresh scent with a little bit more spicyiess than most. Also has that artificial thing going on so prevalent in modern scents. There is a possibility I might come to appreciate it a liitle more with time. It does seem pretty innocuous, so it may be good for work.

    Trussardi - Fresh Uomo I read such good reviews on Trussardi Uomo I figured I'd take a chance on this one. At first it seems like a pretty good spicy scent, but when it drys down there is some discorant note that just sticks out like a sore thumb. I'm not sure what it is yet, but it almost has a "food gone bad" sort of odor. Maybe it's a bad bottle?

    I felt exactly the same as you when I got Lanvin Oxygene. Not bad or offensive, but I just felt it lacked 'oomph' or stand out quality. Pretty ordinary and dull...that said I've worn it once or twice and it has got favourable comments from ladies who've got near enough to smell..so maybe it's more pleasing to the female senses than the male.

    Both are "yucks" in my book too.
