L'eau The One by Dolce & Gabbana
Sugar overloaded! An ultra-sweet and grating scent more suitable on a young lass than on me. I love sweet but not this sweet!
Passion for Men by Elizabeth Taylor
Much better than my last experience wearing it. I've moved it from a 1-star frag back up to 3 stars. Sadly, it progresses to its spicy/sweet base (smells like cinnamon and sugar, with just a hint of woods and a noticeable jasmine presence) all too fast.
It's like a sweeter/darker and far less citrusy version of Antidote. Chop the top off Antidote, add more jasmine and vanilla to it, and you've got Passion.

One of Dior's great men's scents. Relatively unknown for a while, it dropped below the radar until Dior began to offer it more widely for sale again in the U. S. a couple of years ago. This is a woody, leather (and tobacco?) scent with some unusual green notes in the top. Florals in the heart are kept in low profile by the more assertive notes, but are definitely there and eventually revealed for what they are. The base is woody, mossy, leather, a touch of oriental, and the impression of tobacco. I suspect this is a scent made to please a man. Don't think it would appeal much to many women, though they might grudgingly tolerate on a man they really liked...
Yr good bud,

Dior Homme.. awsome
unico grande amore.
In a world where people smell bad, it is the personal responsibility of every Basenoter to improve the world one SotD at a time...
Mitsouko parfum straight up.
Don a wig of larks and fly!
Guerlain L'Instant pour Homme EdT
Creed - Bois du Portugal ... but it has poor sillage and longevity on me, its been 2 hours since I applied it on and I feel I need to spray it again ...
Polo Black by Ralph Lauren
I don't understand the negativity towards this one. I find it very pleasant and inoffensive, but lacking in sillage and longevity so you'd probably have to give this a few good spritzes. Just because it doesn't smell black doesn't mean the fragrance is bad =] Slick bottle too!
Looking for samples, or *cheap* (partial or full) bottles of: Liz Claiborne's Curve and Abercrombie and Fitch Fierce.
Also, anyone who knows where I can try/sample these in Australia (Sydney) please send me a PM! =]
