Holy smokes!! Is it THAT bad?? I bought this stuff as my FIRST fragrance (not a hand-me-down) in 1987 and wore it regularly for quite some time, eventually having it and many other scents of the day in regular rotation. The last time I wore it was in 1998 and a female friend said, "Oh..I like the smell of your aftershave." [smiley=grin.gif] Aftershave...cologne...whatever! I haven't even smelled it since almost then. I don't remember it being THAT bad!! Oh well, to each his or her own!
