    Have you seen my thread about not wanting to let my room mate buy any of the same scents as me? LOL I guess thats more greed than snobbery!

    I AM convinced that I have great taste!
    Lately I've been wearing:
    Windsor, Bois de Santal, Original Santal, Elixir, Douro, Endymion, Reflection, Arcus, Marwah

    You're on a work related road trip with a good friend and co-worker, driving through the night and stopping at a very clean highway rest stop. You're at separate urinals and he remarks, geez, they really keep this place smelling clean, out here in the sticks. You know you're the snob you are when you reply, "Yeah, and they're clearly very into the restroom cleaning agents with heavy doses of heliotrope. Geez is right."

    I heard heliotrope jokes at the office for a month.

    -When you correct everyone's French for the proper pronunciation of fragrance names, even when the names are in english like Silver Mountain Water, and when you say the names of all your fragrances, including the English ones with an affected Parisian accent, and also when you run around in general speaking in a fake Parisian accent...

    -When you can't decide which fragrance to wear to your morning shower.

    "The beginning of freedom is the realization that you are not the "thinker." The moment you start watching the thinker, a higher level of consciousness becomes activated. You then begin to realize that there is a vast realm of intelligence beyond thought, that thought is only a tiny aspect of that intelligence. You also realize that all the things that truly matter - beauty, love, creativity, joy, inner peace - arise from beyond the mind.

    Everyone on here laughs when they hear "AdG/Fierce/Drift is the BEST cologne ever." from drunk girls at a party. And drunk guys. Like last night for example, when I somehow dropped the bomb that I have 51 fragrances (Not colognes), and one of my friends decided it was his solemn duty to tell me what the best ones were. Can you guess who passed out in the car from over-intoxication, and who didn't?

    Someone asks what cologne you're wearing, and when they don't recognize "Black Aoud by Montale", they feel it necessary to say "Well, my boyfriend used to wear this cologne that nobody had ever heard of, and it smelled really good too." As if that makes it OK for me to wear Black Aoud. It's like when somebody says "Well, I knew a Black/Gay/Atheist/Muslim guy in high school." And that's supposed to make it OK that you're Black/Gay/Atheist/Muslim. STFU.

    You get more concernicus than anyone else in the van when they pull out the can of Axe and start spraying people as a joke. You scream and start punching people. Then you drive Drew to the ER to get stitches....

    Similar situation happens to me almost all the time I go out... I spray something on before I leave the house, go to friends house to meet everyone... pre-game a little. They decide to cloud the entire room with Polo Blue/Curve Wave/AXE/etc ... I run and hide before I start to smell of it too, sometimes I make it out of there in time, and sometimes I don't

    SNOB is an imitator, comformist, the slave of "refined taste", a man without brains. He wears good perfumes not for the reason he likes and understands the quality of a scent. He wears them because he knows taht it is "good taste"

    When you are ever so slightly disturbed reading a fragrance review that is so far into your idea of fragrance left field that it sounds like a different fragrance to you even though you know everyone is entitled to his or her opinion This is especially true when it's one of your favorites.

    When it kinda makes you a little mad when your best friend doesn't mention your debut of the newest "mind blowing" fragrance you've purchased.
