Thread: New Purchases

    Default New Purchases

    New picks – 320ml Puig Agua Brava (looks like a bottle of mateus wine, got it cheap, still trying to discover if it is vile or ok), Guerlain chant d’aromes (very nice, also cheap, it’s a dented 125ml refill, full, wears excellent!), and 75ml original heritage from ’91 splash, wearing today.

    wow! What a huge bottle of Agua Brava! Let me know what you think about it, I'm also deciding if It's worth enough to consider a buy (even though It's pretty cheap)

    hey Renato, you know, it's ok.. I haven't fallen in love with it or anything, but it's kind of woody and leathery and I'm really still not sure what to make of it. It's been a while since I've been so undecided on a cologne choice.. If you can get it cheap, try it out! why not. I bought the big bottle as it was $5 more than the 100ml spray - go figure.

    Nice haul, Ric!

    I have a bottle of the '91 Heritage splash as well... Or at least I did have until my darling SO sniffed it one day and 'acquired' it for himself. Luckily I did find it a bit too masculine woody for me but he had swiped it sooner then you could say "maybe..."

    It is an arid, woody, peppery classic conveying strength, power, and good breeding. Wonderful on the right chemistry of a man with the right attitude.

    Enjoy!

    Heritage = Guerlain's number one male power frag, even over Mouchoir de Monsieur and Habit Rouge. Great stuff!!!

    That would explain it! Getting SO interested in frags for himself is like pulling teeth - but he snapped up that Heritage so fast I got whiplash! He does like a bit of the sterner stuff... his other major players are Chanel Antaeus & Givenchy Xeryus Rouge!

    I got L'Anarchiste and Magie Noire as gifts, so of course, I went out and bought Trussardi Uomo, Billy Jealousy Illicit, and Paco Rabanne Métal and Calandre. I managed not to pop for Thallium Sport, but it could be next!

    well Moondiva, your man sounds like a guy with some very good taste. Both Heritage and Antaeus are right up there in my tops. Heritage is indeed amazing, and for the price I paid, I just couldnt refuse - I also have a full 100ml EDT spray as backup lol. And I am now worried MY SO if after mine! She can't get enough.. If you've ever tried the EDP, it is out of this world - the silage carries like nothing but class.
