    Default Frag shopping initial impressions Antidote, London, Gaultier2

    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
    buying this.
    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!
