    Default Rive Gauche and age!!! [story inside]

    Well , after reading indie_guy's topic , i decided to take the car and visit my nearest perfume shop.

    I located the botle of Rive Gauche, sprayed once on my wrist, and left the store, going back home.

    In the car i smelled it; agreed that it is very good, but i wasnt really impressed.
    Judging on the comments this got as being sex in a botle, i wasn't impressed and slightly disappointed.

    I came home and decided to ask my mom if she liked this scent.

    She was sniffing my wrist for a minute.
    She got tears in her eyes and started philosophating how amazingly good this was.
    She stated that this would certainly attract girls.
    A true chick magnet, according to her.
    I had never seen a person react so emotional to a scent.
    According to her, this smells like a freshly shaven guy and describes it as being so sexy you might score a girl every night you go out.

    Me, in total shock, realised i should buy this as it delivers the rumored effect.

    But then i realised my mom isn't in the age group where i want this effect to happen.

    SO THE MAIN QUESTION: As a 19 year old university student, can i use Rive Gauche without smelling like a very, very old man?

    And will the special effect also work on younger girls?

    Interesting question. I have RG and just ordered RGL; I think its a great, versatile scent. I don't get the "sex in the bottle" descriptions others have provided. I happen to believe that the barbasol shaving cream concept will only work with those who have experience with it. I suspect that if you're young that you may not have even heard of barbasol.

    All that said, I don't get the old man scent with this one as much as BdP or others.

    My mother knows best, whether I like it or not...

    Rive Gauche will get the required reaction. Whether you like it or not...

    (BTW try the Intense and ask her opinion again )

    I'm a frequent user and I'm 45. So far, it has not had the desired effect on any woman, man, dog, cat, or anyone else, sad to say. I still like it, though.

    I think that it's safe to say you'll have a large group of mothers waiting outside your door.

    To skew the curve even further, I am 50ish, and don't care for RG that much.

    I hope this won't turn into a comedy topic.

    It seriously isn't meant like that.

    I'm just full of doubts if i should use a seventies powerhouse as a 19 year old guy.

    My experience is that women of all ages like it.

    The main thing is whether or not you like it. "Waste time wondering what 'cologne' pulls better, and your genes will spread only by lucky accident. A perfume should be right for the man, not the job."

    The men's version was a Tom Ford release in 2003. The female one is the 70s one.

    It wasn't my intention to derail your thread. I was just being a smart ass.

    I'm 35 and i love RG. But sadly, i have never had any strong reactions from women while wearing it. If i were you, i would only use a small amount and see how women your age react. You never know, you just might be surprised.

    I can guarantee you that this story is true.
    Your post still can't convince me as you never smelled it lol.

    If only indie_guy told us how old he is and how old that girl is who bit his nipple.

    Just my opinion, but I cant imagine wearing something that I dont care for much, whether so and so says it will attract women or not. You've worn it, so does it make you smell like a very old man? Only you can decide that.

    I own the light version and only wear it on certain formal occasions.

    If you don't like it, don't wear it. If you feel uncomfortable wearing it, don't wear it. If you feel no confidence wearing it, don't wear it.

    Problem solved.

    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.

    I can't really decide if this is the scent for an old man.
    That's why i ask your opinions about this scent.

    Dont you think it smells alot like Shaving Cream? Most men that shave use shaving cream, not just the older ones.

    Smell is very subjective, hard for someone to tell you what you smell and even harder to tell you what you think it smells like. It would be one thing if you were asking and hadnt smelled it before, but you have.

    A scent like Eau Sauvage (Dior) smells, to me, like an old man perfume.

    All i wonna know is if Rive Gauche is just like that.
    I just want people's opinions.

    If someone can convince me, i'll retest Rive Gauche and decide on the factors mister R$ mentioned.

    Some people just can't help talking about anything but the subject.

    Haha really. I hate my wardrobe I hate Roberto Cavalli and just wanna get rid of it. let's see if i get any compliments on my RG (intense). Great Sillage + longevity (i hardly say this to any frag except this and A men).

    My story about RG (how i got it): Last year i walked pass YSL shop >>> heard about RG on basenotes: "young, masculine,sexy, chick magnet, king of compliments" >>> tried it >> didnt like it >>> go home.
    just a few weeks ago, there were so many frag on sale at Myer department store. Tried it again. Didnt like it that much. Bought it anyway, realize it was not the original version, it was RG intense. Wore it on my body and immediately fell in love.
