    I should've known after the cloying monster that was Diesel Plus Plus not to buy this, but the reviews made it sound soo tempting.
    I wore my Diesel Plus Masculine last week and I still like it. Funny thing was I went and put my jumper on four days later, and it smelled heavenly of cinnamon and all the other good things. That Diesel Plus Masculine has got some serious staying power.

    Seems to me you're more a subtle kind of guy Anthony. Have you tried the Armani's?

    I've stopped buying for a while. Been very happy with my last 2 purchases (D&G pour Homme, Claiborne Sport) so I don't feel like I need to buy anymore for a while! All up for trading my stuff that I dont wear though

    I haven't tried the Armanis properly. I smelt Aqua di Gio on at least 7 different guys on the way to and from work today :\. I'll have to give their other frags a sniff in the next few weeks. Most of the stuff I own is pretty 'inoffensive' though, the most outgoing frags I own are probably le Male, Black XS and Rive Gauche.

    I'm glad you liked the Clairborne Sport, I was wondering how it would work out for you. Oddly enough, while I really like the two Diesels you despise, D&G Homme is the most cloying scent I own - I like it a lot when I first put it on, then don't won't to see it again for weeks by the end of the day.

    Since we seem to be poles apart on many scents, I'd be curious to know your thoughts on my favourite Armani, namely Remix.

    I don't find D & G pH cloying at all. I can happily spray it on the front of my neck and not get a headache or any cloying feeling in the back of my throat!. I get more of a soapy, tobacco, tonka-bean vibe. Sorta like what a shirt smells like 2 days after wearing le Male, mixed with unsmoked cigs.. Maybe its my skin? Its easily in my top 5 out of what I own.
    I've found, however, that Joop! Jump and Oscar de la Renta pour Lui both give me massive headaches - although they couldn't be more opposite fragrances!
