Avon Derrick Jeter Driven and new Burberry London
Got my "Driven" yesterday. I'll probably wear it tomorrow. Sprayed it on my hand yesterday. I'm a Jeter fan so I had to have it. It's not bad, real reminiscent of Halston Unbound, Acqua di Gio, etc. For $16 I don't feel ripped off.
I then went to the mall and sprayed new Burberry London on my other hand. NO, I am not saying there's a similarity. No way. London is nice and I think it's an old school fall/winter scent. Sweet and maybe a little smokey.
I went home and had my wife pick the one she liked best, without revealing which was which. She picked London, hands down. But she liked Driven, too. I went to church and came home 3 hours later. She still picked London.
I think I'll ask for London for Christmas.

Well I'm no Jeter fan, but I do adore the fireplace vibe of London. Excellent Christmas choice.
On page 184 of the decemebr GQ, they have "woman-on-the-street" reviews of Jeter's Driven. The responses are hilarious. Only one is unambigiuosly positive about it, the others are "eh" to worse:
"... if my guy wore this, I'd still date him" -Maggie
"It's not for a completely metrosexual guy, but someone whose in touch with his feminine side..." - Dee
"It's girlie. The bottle's not really manly, either. The guy who wears this is probably from Long Island." -Michaela
and, my personal favorite:
"I don't speak English! I'm from Brazil! I think it's very nice for woman." -Mariana
