    Giorgio Beverly Hills ! Darn it- I just succumbed to buying some - why I don't know. I will blame hormones. Anyhow, I scrubbed off the three sprays and sprayed myself all over with Shalimar to get rid of any traces after washing it off.
    Take it someone ! Does anyone actually still like this stuff ?

    mysticknot, I'm shamelessly raise my hand for your question about Giorgio Beverly Hills!
    I'd used my mom's bottle in the 80's. Now I'm holding on to that same bottle for dear life. The Juice turned to dangerously amber color. I sprayed it once a couple years ago and almost kill someone with its smell. I'd like to blame it on the aging process though. :P I believe the fresh bottle would smell as lovely as I'd remembered. (It's difficult to find GBh in Asia, too bad.)

    Oh, and my scrubbers (so far) are
    --> Burberry London (w)
    Creed Acier Aluminum
    Jesus Del Pozo In White
    Cuba Gold

    Jasper- I know there are people who love G BH - I thought I did. A lovely lady I know wears it and she is just great. But I cannot take it myself - it's just overwhelmingly strong and this is she who thinks Carnal Flower is tame and wears Fracas with abandon !

    Repeated here from yesterday's SOTD thread - the beyond vile David Yurman.

    Tenacious, throat catching sweet fuzziness with a slightly discordant note to it.

    David, stick to blinging 3 carat rocks, please. I will accept six of these as compensation for the severe sensory trauma you have subjected me to.

    Are you quite sure you don't want me to send you my sample?

    I cannot see a lover of Fleur Blanche getting on with this, mind...it made me feel very queasy indeed, like Boss Orange and Prada Infusion de Fleur d'Oranger - they were all bad in a similar way. So if you don't find either of the latter scents extremely furry, you might still wish to give David's a spin!

    My two last acquisitions turned out to be scrubbers:
    Mania by Armani (the old one, discontinued)
    Addict by Dior
    Both tested before.

    I'm afraid I have to add Emotionelle by DelRae to this list -- too many melons! It's a "weird" melon -- something not quite right with it.

    Although some people consider it to be an exceptional scent: http://1000fragrances.blogspot.com/2...e-del-rae.html

    Maybe I'll be brave enough to re-test it and see what I think then!
