    Was way out of my way when I spotted a Burlington Coat Factory and stopped in for no good reason since they never, ever, ever have anything but the most god-awful crap.... Ten minutes and $32 later I walked out with an On El EDT and ASB set for $19.99 but the real steal was a full size Joseph Abboud set in a black velvet lined presentation box minus one cap for $7.99. Both boxes were grimy and had multiple stickers on them from what I presume to be years of mark downs until they finally wound up here, of all places at give away prices.

    Not ashamed to admit that I had this one some years ago, tried it a few times and found it to be unwearable. Sharp almost to the point of acridly harsh, my nose just did not get it at all. I came across a vial in the bottom of the sock drawer last spring and set it aside intending to pass it along to some unfortunate swapper. A few months ago either boredom or, more likely, failing memory led me to add it to the pile of things to test. This time around I found it to be quite spicy and warm upon application and reminded me a lot of Basala. It's very dry, the acrid has now become arid ala Yatagan or Sud Est. I don't get the pepper that some do but now pick up the tangy citrus accords that have a zing that is pepper-like to me. It's odd but appealing and causes repeat hand sniffing to see which way it's going to turn next. Drydown is all dry woods and I'll be darned if I can differentiate between sandalwood and cedar and wind up getting more of a redwood-ish accord like the kind found in CDG Sequoia.

    For me, at least, this one definitely benefits from a splash on application. Sprayed slowly into a palm and laid on thick, it wears a whole lot better than atomized juice.

    - Guerlain: Habit Rouge eau de toilette légère (I was so disappointed by the sport version that I venged myself with this one)
    - Guerlain: Habit Rouge eau de cologne (for its perfect balance)
    - Guerlain: Vetiver, current eau de toilette
    - Guerlain: Anisia Bella (one of the best AA IMO)
    - Hermès: Un Jardin en Méditerranée (should become a gift)
    - Kenzo: Kenzo Homme (this one is for a gift)

    I bought Dolce "The One" yesterday off ebay.

    I walked around Burlington Coat Factory today and found nothing. They did have a number of decent fragrances at 50% off, including Bvlgari Aqva, a very nice scent. They also had 50% off a number of gift sets including RSVP, KC Signature, Essenza di Zegna and others.

    I also went in a cologne shop ran by an Indian fellow. When I walked in he looked at me, smiled and said "Creed". I wasn't wearing it, he just remembered me talking about it before. He said his business is way down. He offered a 4.0 Of Tabarome for $129, but, nah. I wanted to help him out by buying something, but nothing worked out. He's a nice chap, worried about his job.
    Current faves: Aventus, ADG Essenza, MFK Masculin Pluriel, Creed Royal Mayfair, TDH Parfum, Tom Ford Italian Cypress

    I bought two vintage Prince Matchabelli bottles (both Wind Song), including this rare one on a neckchain. See my blog for a Matchabelli collector write-up.

    My absurdly good luck with vintage Givenchy III continues....

    I just won a NIB Givenchy III parfum 7.5ml for $26. Coupled with the EdP I got for $10 and EdT for $15 (within the last couple weeks to supplement my existing vintage bottle), I got the entire set of concentrations for $51!

    I picked up Armani Prive Eau de Jade today at Marshalls, and another 40ml bottle of Zirh came with my refresh of Clean, Scrub, and Defend. Soon I'll have enough 40ml bottles of Zirh to make a mountain or something.

    But once you get locked into a serious perfume collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.

    Not fair!!! Have you tried it before, or was it a blind buy? Would you mind describing it?

    Bulgari Aqva pour Homme (Gift for my brother, his birthday is this Sunday!)
    Chanel Allure Sport Homme (I think I'm in love, great "young man" scent imo)
    Givenchy Blue Label (My old bottleis almost finished; and summer in Mexico calls for this fragrance.
    Guerlain Vetiver (Yikes, my girlfriend hates it but I absolutely love it; although I don't think I can pull it off. Still, love to wear it when I'm in the house or doing some gardening)

    I was about to blind buy L'Eau de Issey PH; but I thought that would be just too much.

    It really is difficult to get testers here in Mexico, most department stores only carry samples for the newest colognes =(

    It was a blind buy but I tried it on when I got home after buying it. I like the fragrance quite a bit, I'd describe it as a spicy grass scent. It's been about 8 hours since I put it on and I can't smell it on me anymore, but the girlfriend says that she can still smell it a little bit. I like it, though I'm not sure that I'll ever use the full flacon so I may end up decanting and selling some later on.
