This has been re-released earlier this year and is available at Nordstroms, at least it was a couple of months ago.Originally Posted by Borky
Try Hugo by Hugo Boss.
OK, OK -- I have to admit that Acqua di Selva is better than Pino, yes. Still, I wouldn't go so far as to say that it is exponentially better. Furthermore, Pino has incredible lasting power, whereas AdS comes (and goes) faster than Hugh Grant with a Sunset Strip hooker.
And as for Green Jeans, well, it's very like Blue Jeans and Black Jeans in that you either love it (as I do), or you hate it. There seems to be no via media for this most coniferous of Versace's creations.

Latrelle: "Isn't he only on the second floor?"
Peggy: "Yes, but he hit his head on a lawn gnome."

Update: I sampled Pino Silvestre, Yatagan, Aqua di Selva, and Bowling Green yesterday. I bought Bowling Green. Aqua di Selva was too fleeting, and Yatagan and Pino Silvestre were just...well...umm..not for me.
I plan on sampling Duc de Vervins as soon as I can. I saw it at SAKS last time is was in the store.
Thanks once again for all the input. You all have been a big help.
Jo Malone has come out with a Pine and Eucalyptus candle and living cologne for the holidays. Too bad it is not offered in a regular cologne because I have heard the Pine and Eucalyptus candle is amazing.
Spray ADS on your shirt and it will last all day, if not longer. I also think this is one that others can smell long after you can't smell it on yourself.
The Directory says it's "in production," and I see it at Neiman's all the time. There was a limited edition out for a while, and maybe they're closing that one down...Originally Posted by Borky
Yr good bud,

Qui nihil potest sperare, desperet nihil.
Let him who can hope for nothing despair of nothing.

It is an evil thing to arm an angry man.
The most pure scent of pine that I ever came across was Arden's Sandalwood actually
Has anyone ever tried Agraria - Balsam? What's it like?
Did a careful test of ADS today. It lasted all day, and even 14 hours later could be reactivated by body heat or by rubbing wrists together. I also noticed that it has a drydown very reminiscent of Irish spring soap. I really am starting to like this one again, could be a new fav.
Rec. swiped from another board ... CB I Hate Perfume makes "Fir Tree." I have not sampled but it is supposedly pure winter pine.
Beauty is an ecstasy; it is as simple as hunger.
There is really nothing to be said about it.
It is like the perfume of a rose: you can smell it and that is all.

Baldessarini, smooth pine, but has some longevity problems with the EdC.
HOLY COW! I went back today and tested Yatagan at a local store. On Monday, I just spritzed it quickly with about 5 other scents and was not impressed. DustB got me curious to try this again today. So I gave it another chance. I am in love with this stuff!! Thanks to those of you who encouraged me to try Yatagan. What an about face for me. I bought it on the spot.
This is very masculine stuff but has a feel for me that is very much the same as when I wear Helmut Lang - Cuiron. Oh well!

Right I'm definitely going to wear it for my trip to the races this weekend. I was going to go for something leathery - but Yatagan is the one for a tweedy, boozy Autumn afternoon losing lots of money in the great outdoors!Originally Posted by Jock_With_Scents
