Okay, I am apologizing in advance for my less than
eloquent post here (I am typing this on a sidekick).
I went fragrance shopping yesterday with intentions to
purchase. I had the oportunity to try Antidote,
London, and Gaultier2.
None of these blew me away but I would say Antidote
was the best of the bunch. The best way for me to
describe it is with a comparison. It reminded me of
Burberry Brit for Men minus the ginger and with a
little bit of wood to it. Seriously, the first
thought that came to mind was if you gave Brit for Men
the B*men treatment (like A*men received) it would smell like this. I liked
it but I would have to give it another go before I
would consider purchasing this. I like something with
a little more oomph for fall. It could definitely be used for all seasons. I will definitely sample
it again. My friend thought it was very nice (he likes
fresh light scents) and he said he would consider
Burberry London was a dissapointment. The wine (or brandy) note
that has been discussed reminded me of actual grape skin
and was no more than a fleeting top note, and the base
was a bit of a playdough wood kind of smell. Not real
special to me.
Gaultier2 reminded me of what a creme soda bottle cap
smells like. It has that artificial vanilla smell
with a hint of an effervescence (sp?). It is real
simple but I could see this doing well with people who
want something noticeable for school or the club. I
would personally save 50 dollars and purchase Diesel
Zero for something in the same vein.
Again, these are initial impressions, I smelled probably 15
different colognes so aside form Antidote, the others
were sniffed with an already taxed sniffer. I will
post if the impressions change.
Great post and delightful reviews to read, Snakesandladders. No need to worry that you're less than eloquent. Keep up the great work!
That girl, that bottle, that mattress and me.
