    First things first: don't blind buy.

    To answer your question properly, I'd go with Paco XS, Subtil, Chrome, and L'Eau d'Issey Summer.

    These blind buys better be cheap! anyhows,

    XS - mint, flowers and woods. much like Eternity

    F Pour Homme - above average fresh scent that has a warm dry down, add some spice to it too

    212 men - All i can think of is how sweet this is. literally

    Chrome - Citrus/Chypre opening, ends warmly

    let us know what u think soon

    Thanks Genvy5! Unfortunatley, I go have to go blind most of the time due to conviance, but I don't mind. Reviews and suggestions on BN have helped tremendously! If I may bother one other time, Would the Issey Summer be to simialar to L'Issey original which I already own?

    I wanted to mention earlier to avoid Issey Summer 08, but since u asked, here's why,

    poor longevity
    poor sillage
    too sweet
    hardly any significant notes similar to the original

    Gracias Matthew. Its been such a pleasant surprise to find so many others that share my recent OCD facination and are so willing to help a relative stranger? Much appreciated


    Th problem is that seller doesn't have much to work with thats "original",so I'm trying to make do with what he's got.

    Look forward to getting to know all of you better...

    ur most welcome. alot of ppl do blind buys though not too frequently.....
    what "recent ocd fascination" are we talking about? the need to buy for the sake of it, or the need to have a wider range to choose from your collection. just curious, nothing serious

    To be honest, I've just can't seem to get enough knowledge/research about different houses + frags lately. With the help of BN, its opened up a whole new world and culture of exciting scents. For example, This week I've added the followig o my collection..(most I've never heard of prior to spending countless hrs on BN, much to the shagrine of my girlfriend

    HM
    Terre d'Hemes
    Creed OV
    Himalaya (off ebay, hope its not a fake)
    Leu D'Issey
    Mont Blanc Individual
    Mulger Cologne
    L'Intstant d' Geurlien
    A-Men

    I also purchased (5) used bottles from BN member Fidat which include:
    M7
    M7 Fresh
    Versace Man (purple bottleO
    Jil Sander Man
    B-men


    As you can see, I jst can't get enough! Although I reletivy new to this world, I'd welcome any suggestions I might be omiting.


    Thanks again for your help! relly appreciate th "coaching" up

    I dont really think you need too many more suggestions coz you already have quite a number coming in soon. I can sense your enthusiasm trust me

    i see u have m7 ordered. I would suggest you hold on to it even if u dont really like it initially from the first couple uses. this one "grows on" really well. LDIssey, Himalaya, TDH are all above average imo. keep us updated
