    Curve is pretty long lasting on me. Given that it is an EdT, I (used to) get about 6 hours with it.

    WOW, I live in the US and department stores are almost giving the Curve away for free! I liked it actually, very sporty and aquatic.

    Now for your other two choices. I would go with Visit and Bvlari Aqva (although I would try the Z Zegna first in place of the Bvlgari--better balance of spice and citrus)

    212 also has a limited summer edition called 212 on Ice. I like that one much better--citrus and wood prevails with this one.

    I too was impressed w/ the Z Zegna. Very soapy & clean smelling. Bit too masculine for me in the drydown, though

    Well i popped in "the other" cologne shop in town today, and they were out of Bvulgari Aqua & 212 On Ice, but i did sample:

    L'eau par Kenzo
    Azzaro Chrome
    Aramis Life...

    And i have to say so far the Chrome is reminding me somewhat of Cool Water...anyone else think this? I have to say i was expecting more. Aramis life is oook, but out of the 3 i like the Kenzo most [smiley=thumbsup.gif]

    Actually i'm gonna bite the bullet, i'm gonna go to the big store where that girl might see me, lol...who cares right?! I'm gonna see if they have any Bvulgari Aqua (must sample this), Azzaro Visit, Z Zegna, 212 On Ice.

    Anyone agree that the Kenzo is slightly feminine, but not overly so?

    L'eau par Kenzo pH is just a slight variation from the female version, no doubt it would have many characteristics you can consider 'feminine'.

    I don't think Chrome has any similarities with Cool Water. It would be similar to ck One and Eau Parfumee Au the Vert from Bvlgari but definitely not Cool Water.

    Ok guys i'm back and after all that they had no 212 On Ice or Bvlgari Aqua [smiley=rolleyes.gif].


    Buuut i did get a sample of Z Zegna, and that's an interesting scent, again it's on the feminine side and i'd class this as a unisex fragrance.............no? I kinda like it, it reminds me of watermelon...

    UPDATE:

    The Chrome - seems to be improving with time, a more spicy quality is coming through over the metallic beginning.

    The Kenzo - i still like this, it's probably fading a little quicker than the Chrome but i have to admit it has a very pleasent smell indeed.

    The Zegna - Definately more masculine notes coming through, i've never smelled anything close to this before, same for the Kenzo, but this is even more unique to me. Thumbs definately up!

    The Aramis Life - nice, but not remarkable.

    Damn shame i can't sample the Bv Aqua just yet, or the Visit (might buy one of these blind). [smiley=happy.gif]

    Hello, folks! I'm still looking for a fresh fragrance and I'm curious about Chrome and L'eau par Kenzo!
    Is Chrome's Metallic smell similar in any way to Tommy T or Davidoff's Echo?
    Any fragrance similar to L'eau ?
    I haven't seen these ones to try and I'll have to order Blind... I started a topic a few days ago and decided to buy 212 after all the raving opinions... I tried it and ARGH! I didn't like it... It's not a bad scent, just too common, non appealling... Too expensive for what it delivers...
    So... My search continues!
    If you know any other f ragrance similar to Echo or Tommy T, please suggest me! THANKS!

    hmmm...i liked the 212. As for Chrome and L' eau par Kenzo they're certainly very different. To me Chrome begins metallic like, then becomes spicy and perhaps a little peppery in time. Kenzo is a different animal all together, it starts very citrusy and sharp but slowly becomes more refined, mellow, subtle but distinctive.

    I really wanna sniff some Bvulgari Aqua, that's in the fresh category. As for the Z Zegna, it smells pretty special to me, but i think it's one of those you either love or hate types...might be wrong.

    I agree that Chrome is a lot like CK1. I was actually wearing Chrome last night & an acquaintance asked me if I was wearing CK1. This was about 3 hours after I had applied it.
