    1. Polo Blue
    2. Paco Rabanne PH *(blind buy after hearing so much good stuff about it)
    3. Carolina Herrera 212
    4. Unscripted (enjoyed a free sample I got somewhere, bottle was too cheap to pass up)
    5. Kenzo Tokyo (backup bottle, love this stuff)
    6. Lacoste Essential
    7. Kenzo PH *(blind buy after loving Tokyo and being impressed with Power)
    8. Kenzo Jungle *(also a blind buy for reasons above.. very impressed with Kenzo so far)
    9. MCM Twenty-Four Evening *(blind buy, heard its good from a Basenoter or two whose opinions have previously led me to winners)

    All purchased on Ebay or online discounters for good prices.. (still, it adds up quickly!).. hope the blind buys are not disappointments!

    Same, it's sorta like gambling, lol.. you have some winners in there for sure, actually those are all quality frags IMO.. interested to hear what you think of Kouros especially (I didn't like it at first, now I love it!)..Lucky #6 in particular is surprisingly good given its low asking price..

    Let me know how the other Kenzo's do .. I own Tokyo (which was my first kenzo and I was blown away) so then I heard good things with Power so I tried that and love it. Same with Paco Rabanne (loved one million) so I went to Black XS and love that too. Perhaps I need to get Paco's PH also.

    Will do, Kenzo is batting 1000 for me right now so we'll see how it goes.. Paco Rabanne PH will be my 2nd Paco (I have Black XS and love that one too.. perfect scent for going out).. still haven't tried One Million but I saw your Youtube for it and been wanting to check it out ever since.. price is still a little high to justify a blind buy though.. only place I can find it for a decent price is on Ebay but they all ship from Turkey or Bulgaria and the sellers have just a few feedback ratings (maybe I'm being paranoid, but it wouldn't be the first time I got a fake on Ebay).. probably just get a sample from TPC and go from there, who knows maybe it's worth the high price..

    I have two on the way:

    Acqua di Parma Colonia (original)

    Acqua di Parma Colonia Assoluta

    I also picked up a Cool Water Gift Set for my Father-in-Law for Christmas. He does not use EDT, just the after shave splash, so I get to keep the EDT spray. The gift set was $29.99 at CVS pharmacy for the 2.5 EDT, 2.5 AS, and tubes of shower gel and AS Balm. Pretty good value in that set.

    Cool Water is a real solid office scent for any time of year.

    Tom Ford - Oud Wood 100ml from a fellow Basenoter.

    Loved it.. fell out of love.. Sold it.. Got interested in oud again... Fell in love again... bought it again. Now I have double the amount. Yikes! This is like the third or forth scent that ive sold only later to purchase again. Hopefully I wont sell it again. LOL

    The only thing I would change is I would get rid of the smoky/peppery top notes. I understand that its supposed to smell like burning oud wood chips so I can see why they included the smoke/pepper. But I would prefer it without.

    I bought a set of 5 samples from Smell Bent - an enterprise founded by a fellow Basenoter.

    I'm looking forward to trying something sure to be original. Check out his unique website when you get a chance !

    I originally thought this was a bad rip off of Mugler Cologne, but I sampled it again today and found it to be a better quality Mugler Cologne, with less shower/soapy vibes and more natural cedar. The only downside is that this is REALLY light. You need to spray liberally, and on your clothes, cuz it only lasts about 4-5 hours. I'm really loving the cedar note - this is one of the few fragrances with cedar that don't smell heavily of Iso E Super.
