If you like aquatics but don't know what an 80s power frag is like, it may not be a bad idea to grab one of these as a "reference" frag because they are still fairly cheap. At some point you'll see them on ebay for $100 a bottle or so.
    Yep, I don't think it'll get a lot of love from people used to modern fragrances. It's definitely old school, and VERY herbal.

    Don't do it dude. I don't think Horizon will sit well with you. Like others above me have mentioned, it is more herbal. It is also somewhat dated. This is not Terre Hermes, something I have read that you like. Being "dated" is not bad, but you come across as someone who prefers modern aquatics and sport fragrances. Nothing wrong with that. I really think you are due to buy a boat load of samples and work your way through them.

    But, don't buy Horizon ( blind).

    Just bought a 1.7 oz bottle of Horizon blind off of Ebay for $5. I figured that even I could afford that blind buy (even if it turns out to be a fake).

    Well why did everyone choose Horizon over Aqua di Gio in the list that I provided if it came down to choosing those 3 fragrances? I love Aqua di Gio "kinds" of fragrances, and with a little twist is fine, and I'm guessing the marine note in Horizon would be a nice change..

    Because people on these boards don't like AdG. Horizon is nothing, I repeat NOTHING, like Acqua di Gio. They are 100% poles apart.

    For $5, you cannot go wrong. Good buy Shortino ( I like that nickname !). At the worst, you can just swap it off. But, I hope it works out great for ya

    As mtgprox mentioned, alot of guys detest the smell of AdG. Me included. I gave my bottle away ( it was practically new !). I think Sander for Man is a more better choice. Its a pretty cool fragrance. Casual and sporty, but also interesting.

    I got a large bottle of this for $30 over at parfum1 so I will be equipped with this scent for a while. I'm even thinking about buying a backup bottle later this year. There is a tad of a classic feel to it but not enough for the younger crowd like myself to be turned off by it. It's just an all-around great smell that goes well in all weather conditions.
