    Unhappy FIRED or RETIRED !! your first casualties of 2008

    It really doesn't matter as your showing them the door .
    Mine are
    BLACK XS
    Liked it somewhat at first , I got it last year ,, I gave it plenty of trial runs thru the four seasons & found it pleasant but nothing special ,, Decided to sell it a few days ago because overall it smells to much like candy-lollies to me and very common artificially flavoured ones at that ...
    ROCABAR
    Nice , green pleasant & fresh .. but "PISS WEAK" .
    It saved Michael Kor's from exiting the drobe at the 23rd hr .
    I don't mind spritzing once or twice on an evening or long day out as Ive done with MK .
    But HERMES c'mon ! why so weak ?
    You expect people to buy it in gallons for marinating in ..

    Got Bora Bora from TJ Maxx----It's probably going to be donated to any friend who wants it. Not good for my nose.

    I got St. John's West Indian Lime, together with a bottle of Trumper's Extract of the same. The latter makes the former superfluous, it has none of zesty freshness of the Trumper.

    Pomegranate Noir: Loved it at first, but it grew heavy, tiresome and lugubrious after a few months.

    DKNY Red Delicious Men is retired.

    I'll use it sometimes, like once a month.
    Not more.

    I have a sneaking suspicion my Czech & Speake 88 is on the out, and Washington Tremlett's Black Tie is on the way in. No.88's "grittiness" I don't seem to be able to come to terms with now I have smelled something superior.
    Possibly keep an eye on my swap thread in weeks to come...

    Same for me too... and in addition C&S Frankincense and Myrrh. Both smell very nice, but just way too fleeting for me. While I don't mind a scent that goes away after 3 or 4 hours, but one to two hours is just way too short... which is the case for these two... Glad I only bought samples!

    Retired Puig Vetiver. Used to like it a lot, but it tended to go sour on me half way through the day.
