    Looks like four very one-sided contests this time round - strong title contenders in Guerlain Vetiver and Havana and maybe even old Azzaro.

    Dear Lord! Where's all the votes coming for Azzaro PH from?! Le Male smells FAR better on me.

    Seems I overestimated Le Male's popularity.

    And here I am thinking that Azzaro PH is WAY too overrated. I tried it, and then I tried it again, and then again and again because of all the hoopla around it.

    Finally I could find nothing special with it - in fact something that quickly becomes boring.

    On the other hand, I think that Le Male is far better.

    Looks like the Dior Homme vs Diptyque Eau Lente battle is the biggest blowout yet.

    Yeah, Docman nailed that one. I'm taking it hard too since I'm an Eau Lente type.

    Don't forget that this is basenotes forum where trendy and mass market popular scents are bashed and old guy classic fragrances praised ;-) This round is clear example, except of Dior.

    Eau Lente was suggested by one of the private selections, and I was a bit surprised as honestly I'd never heard of it. I'd rather see Tam Dao or Philosykos represent Diptyque next time around.

    I went "Ouch!" on Vetiver versus Platinum Egoiste as I love both, but I went with the Guerlain for longevity and just making me feel slightly more special when I wear it.
    In a world where people smell bad, it is the personal responsibility of every Basenoter to improve the world one SotD at a time...
