    I love Cool Water and Unforgivable even though many here hate them because they are cheaper wannabe's of their beloved Creed scents.

    They smell good and the price is right for me thats all that matters in my book.

    Cool Water, for I have to admit it is quite original for the year it was released.
    Le Male proved a surprise, I found the dry down very nice.
    B*Men: I like Avon's Woody Musk, B*Men is its complex version.
    Adddition: I forgot about Mennen's Skin Bracer! Add the original scent dodorant to it and it is a smasher... LOL

    Many Basenoters happen not to like or at least, are neutral, about YSL PH Concentree, but I love it, because it has style and is one of the best classic (old-school, conservatively elegant) citrus frags around.

    I still like cKone.
    It is known that there are an infinite number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near nothing as makes no odds, so the average population of all the planets in the Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that the population of the whole Universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely products of a deranged imagination.

    Stetson is girly as hell, and it smells great.

    Not a fragrance as such but I really enjoy the smell of Aqua Velva Musk aftershave (the orange-colored one).

    It's not hated by any means, but I've never gotten the Terre d"Hermes backlash that followed its initial celebration. It's never been my favorite frag, but I love it as well as I did when I got it over a year ago. Versatile and incredibly wearable.

    I like Fantasy and Midnight Fantasy by Britney Spears, they're fun and I enjoy them once in awhile. And since I grew up in the '90s, I have a soft-spot for CK Escape and Cool Water Woman.

    A lovely aromatic fougére. No matter how synthetic it is, it smells great on me.

    I finally tried Caesar's Man for the first time a few days ago, and I really like it. There are lots of bad reviews on it here, calling it cheap-smelling garbage. Sure the packaging and the fact that it's made in Las Vegas reek of cheap cheeziness, but it doesn't smell cheap.

    Unhappy Re: Frags hated by many BNers that you like, and why.

    I usually dislike modern synthetic sweet-fruity-vanilla type fragrances alot. But for some strange reason, I like Lacoste Pour Homme quite abit. It is kind of similar with Boss Bottled, which then again is horrid. Weird, I know!

    Now you guys know my darkest secret.

    Cool Re: Frags hated by many BNers that you like, and why.

    1. Salvador by Dali (not Salvador Dali by Dali)
    Why?
    Because it's far, far from pedestrian, though most reviewers think so.

    2. Le Roy Soleil also by Dali. Not as condemned as Salvador, but highly underrated.

    3. The Baron (1965) by LTL or Evyan or whoever owns it these days.
    Because it's funky and fun.

    4. Mont Blanc Individuel by Mont Blanc
    Because I'm not yet 100 years old, nor as much of a snob as I think--Oh the shame of it!

    It seems to me that Sécrétions Magnifiques is a “bête noire” for a lot of people here. However, I really like it. If I recall well (please, correct me if I am wrong), only a few other Basenoters (tigrushka, moon_fish, sofresh…) find it winsome, as well. Oh, and why do I like it? I don’t know exactly, I mean: why do we like or dislike anything in our lives?

    Jessica Simpson Fancy. I luuuurve it. Subtle and well-done.

    I also appreciate/enjoy the whole idea behind the ELdO line, which a lot of people seem to loathe. Cheeky is good in my book and I like that they're doing something that feels different.

    Polo Blue. It seems quite... "meloncholy" to me. Especially for a fresh scent, and that's why I like it. I quite like the suede-y note and the strong alcohol note, too.

    Why - I always get this "love/hate" response. My closest friends always give me some "constructive" feedback when I wear this, and then total strangers compliment me on it. I will always have a bottle in my wardrobe - I enjoy constructive feedback

    Acqua di Gio and Armani Code. Armani scents get bashed over here but in the "normal" world it almost always gets positive feedback and more important.. I just love them
