    Default The Bryan Adams Syndrome

    Do you have any colognes that suffer from "The Bryan Adams Syndrome" (translation: they work better for you from a distance yet up close not so good)?

    For me, I prefer the sillage of:

    Sean John Unforgivable
    Swiss Army Original
    Adidas Dare
    Polo Sport
    Giorgio for Men

    When I put my nose up to my skin when wearing them, I don't like the smell nearly as much. But when I notice the sillage, I quite like them.

    Ouch.....snap atrac! I'm a total Bryan Adams nerd and for you to say that about him is unacceptable. This kinda slandering surely Cuts like a Knife !! I'm definitely gonna have to spray you with some Ralph Lauren Romance Men ( aka pickle juice and urine ) . You will be sorry !!!!!!!!!!!!!!




    PS : my choice would be Polo ( original green bottle)

    I have it with Creed MI, smelling it directly from my wrist makes me gag, but from a distance its ok. (obviously its the same with Sean John unforgivable)
    Terre d'hèrmes, from a distance ( 30 feet) its ok, from up close it makes me sick, there is just something about rotten orangepeel in tobacco ash that i don't like.

    I'm wearing Unforgivable Multi Platinum and it smells good up close.
    In general I try to avoid getting my nose too close to my skin, especially right after spraying it on, because it seems to create some aversion. I prefer to smell the sillage.

    I don't like Bryan Adams from any distance, just like a lot of generic mainstream pseudo-adventurous perfumes . Cuts like a wet noodle.

    But some perfumes that come to mind are Ferragamo Incanto and Il Profumo Vetiver de Java (wonderful from a close distance, but strangely bland directly skin-sniffed).
