For me, this year has been just one ho-hum scent after another so far. Some cool bottles though ... Juicy is pretty cool as is the Ed Hardy fragrance. Too bad the scents didn't match the bottles. D&G "The One" was OK, but horribly short longevity and no sillage at all on my skin. Tommy Set Sail South Seas wasn't nearly as good as St. Barts. Allure Pour Homme Blanche was just plain disappointing to me. Lasted about 15 minutes on my skin (thankfully). Chrome Legend ... eh, nothing great. Issey Summer 2008 lasted less than half an hour on me and smelled kinda similar to the other Issey scents. Tauer Incense Extreme wound up on my swap list. I thought Escada Moon Sparkle was just plain crap. All in all, a pretty disappointing 1/3 year so far.
I did however find a pleasant $20 purchase (a tester off ebay of course) in CSP's Mage D'Orient. I'm tickled how pleased I am with this scent, especially for the price. It's not gonna knock your socks off but it smells very tropical (coconut, citrus, fruits) and I think anyone who likes Virgin Island Water might like this. One of the more "unisex" fragrances from CSP and VERY summery.
