    Smile When the shower gel is bettah than the juice itself...



    Today I received a big bottle of Mugler Cologne shower gel / shampoo. I love this stuff. I already had a complimentary mini, and the vetiver-like scent is just SO refreshing under the shower. It's seriously better than the eau de cologne itself.

    What other scents work better for you under the shower, than the actual bottled frag?
    Wanted: a cap of Bvlgari Th Vert

    Wanted: L' Artisan Timbuktu or Fragonard Concerto

    I have had the same feelings for M7.
    Shower Gel smelled much better than the original EdT.

    I think practically everything smells better in the shower - I certainly do!. The humidity and heat really create a fragrance cloud that envelopes your whole body. I've become a compulsive shower junkie since I started using high quality shower products!

    Those I've tried and liked:
    Dior Homme - Fantastic!! Smells just like the fragrance. Equal partners, I'd say.
    Prada Infusion d'Homme - better than the EdT
    Eau des Baux - Definitely better than the EdT, for me at least. The vanilla is toned down considerably.
    l'Instant de Guerlain - I wouldn't say it's better than the fragrance, but it's damn nice.

    It's not necessarily better than the fragrance itself, but Kiehl's Musk body wash is pretty darn good as well.

    Well, there's enough fragrance stuff in your ordinary shampoo, so you're already livin' on the edge.

    Agree with the vote cast for M7 - there's something about warm steam that really makes it magical.

    Bleu d'Issey was kind of a clunky scent, but in the shower gel it was amazing.

    Burberry Touch for Men, with its cool ashy violets, was another one that really came into its own as a bath product.

    Rive Gauche Pour Homme shower gel, if you can find it. I wish I'd have stocked up when it first came out. Hard to believe, but it's even better than the EDT!

    I like the Mugler Cologne shower gel very much and I think it layers very well with the Cologne. The L'Occitane verveine shower gel is very uplifting; I like it as much as the EDT but not more.

    If you like Hanae Mori you'll go through about one of their shower gels a month. When I first got it I even used it for hand wash soap so I could smell it in between showers. On the opposite end of the spectrum sits Kenzo Pour Homme - the longer you shower with it the more you think another shower might be in order to wash all of this seawater off...

    None of the shower gels have been better than the juice for me.. I might buy the shower gel to get an idea of what the fragrance is like, but I generally discard the shower gels.

    I know this fragrance has been a topic of discussion lately, but do yourself a favor and get the Polo Double Black shower gel. It's amazing! It feels great and smell awesome! And it doesn't dry out your skin either.
    Loves it.

    I have sympathy with this point of view - certainly the heat allows the fragrance to come out.

    Kouros was pretty good - but not quite a 'double' of the juice.
    Paco Rabbane was fantastic - and yes, better than the juice.

    I have a Body Kouros that I'm yet to try; and an old Balenciaga pH that I'm holding onto.

    Oh my god, I have turned into an out of control, shower gel freak! Bandit creme shower gel almost puts the EdP to shame. Can you imagine a leather chypre in the shower? I also am nuts about Patou's 1000 and Sublime gels - chypre scents are spectacular shower friends as long as they are not sweet.
    Creed shower gels are awesome, too. Erolfa made last year's outdoor showers on Cape Cod into pure heaven.
    I just bought Bay Rum from Bigelows.

    Yves Saint Laurent L'Homme. It's really nice. If you use it before spraying the juice, it accelerates its potency.

    The Jaipur homme shower gel smells better, to my nose, than both the edt & edp versions of this scent. The shower gel is not overloaded with florals.

    Molton Brown Black Pepper Body Wash pre-existed the edt by several years and is absolutely addictive. For some reason, they were unable to replicate the fragrance in a perfume.
    Also, Gucci Pour Homme II is surprisingly pleasant as a shower gel even though the edt is cloying and annoying. I received free samples of each and have only really used the gel which doubles as a shampoo.

    Easy question for me: Kouros! The shower gel is out of this earth and if the cologne actually smelled like the shower gel, life would be grand. The shower gel helped me "understand" those who appreciate Kouros.

    Escape Calvin Klein shower gel smells divine,I wish the frgrance smelled this good. It takes the freshest of the notes and does away with all the dry notes. Very clean and marine. God I wish I could still wear that scent. It was my first.

    I can confirm this. I only 'kind of like' the cologne, but the Rive Gauche pH Gel makes me understand immediately what the perfumer must have intended to create!
    Bing in it I enjoy even more ! After this experience I tried Rochas Lui Gel in the bath tub, but that's not half as enjoyable. I now hope to find the Kouros and Mugler Cologne Gels for the summer. And Bandit is 250 ml at a very good price. Oh wallet, what a mess we are in!

    I agree with "fool" before I'd read his post I was going to say Molton Brown Black Pepper. The shower gel is just a divine product and smells fantastic. [email protected] says that he doesn't like the secondary products, well in this instant the frag is actually the secondary product to the shower gel. I don't like the frag much at all. It hardly smells anything like the shower gel. You get a little of it in the top notes, then it just burns down to a creamy cloying sweet smell that I dont like.

    Bandit showergel, I had no idea it even existed. I must try it now. Damn you basenotes!!!
    But once you get locked into a serious perfume collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.

    Just ordered the Mugler Cologne shower gel from Beauty Encounter after reading numerous positive comments from multiple threads. I like the Edt, but prefer Creed's OV a bit more. Still it is a very refreshing, uplifting scent.

    I have the M7 shower gel and LOVE it. I like M7, but I feel it can be a bit too much and I sometimes get bored with it. The shower gel still has a very wonderful unique masculine scent to it, but it is less heavy and very refreshing. I don't know quite how to describe it, but I like it a bit more than the edt. I just wish I hadn't broken the top off the container. It keeps leaking

    New obsession: Encens Flamboyant shower gel. It's like taking a shower in the middle of a high mass. Shower gels make taking a shower fun again!

    Back to the original question, Narcisso Rodriguez for him shower gel is fantastic, but I really don't like the actual cologne.

    Thanks to another member here, I recently got two travel kits that include the shower gel AND a big bottle (canister?) of the EDT for a pretty good price. I think I'm set for life

    I second the Eau de Baux
    and I agree with Ruggles, the Encens Flamboyant shower gel is great!
