    Default Battle of the Scents, Round 1

    All,

    I am finding that as I explore more scents, I have "duplication" meaning that I have too many colognes that I deem in the same category. And they are:

    M7
    Rochas Man
    Fou d'Absinthe
    Clive Christian X

    Would you put them in the same category as well? Furthermore, I plan on selling two of them, which ones would you keep?

    Well, I would definitely sold Clive Christian as it's the most expensive out of them, and the I would buy several other scnets instead.

    But seriously I don't see any similarity between say M7 and Rochas Man, and would eep these since they are getting hard to find, espesiclly M7, and you can hardly encounter someone wearing either.

    I wonder how you came up with this list? Do you have other scents similar to each of these, or are you saying they seem similar to you?

    This is just by my own personal comparison. M7 and Rochas fall into the "sweet" category where CC and FdA fall into another, not sure what I would label it.

    Your 4 scents all seem DARK, to me...

    Sell the CCX and Rochas and get something light, and perhaps a little more FUN - it's Spring!!

    p.s. - I think CCX is highly overrated - the Comme de Garcons Incense series (there are 5 of them) kick CCX's butt in terms of complexities, longevity and they're MUCH cheaper. But they're kinda dark too, so I wouldn't buy them now to replace your CCX.

    M7 has that sultry Oud note, so if you don't have any Montales, it'd be good to hold onto that for a while. Rochas has become a little common, so you might sell it, but I've always enjoyed it. Fou d'Absinthe is a great scent for the first thirty minutes, then it's just fresh and clean, which is good too, but I think that this one you might be able to get rid of.

    As always, disregard most of what I say. It's not worth your heart health to actually worry about what a 23 year old guy from Kansas thinks. Even if he is really ridiculously good looking.

    Ha, good point, but I also need to trim down my light scents (see wardrobe), which is Round 2!

    I would definitely get rid of Fou d'Absinthe and give it to me.

    On a more serious note: since you already own 'Oud Shuyukh, which is incredibly beautiful, I would get rid of M7. The latter might be a bit much for the summer time anyways.

    Oud Shuyukh?? I own no such thing, I've never even heard of it!

    If you happen to decide to sell the Rochas and M7 let me know how full they are and how much you'd be selling them for.

    My bad. It was someone else. Well, now you have heard of it.

    I'm a little surprised, I agree with the earlier comment that FdA is dark...certainly not uplifting. I would definitely categorize it as a winter scent for sure. Fresh and soapy??!!
