    What do you guys think of Boss In Motion? Judging by the reviews I think I might like it. Its hard to tell, because I kind of have to rely on bad reviews sometimes, because I like the fruity and aquatics that so many seem to hate.

    I have read some reviews. Some of the positives say grapefruit juice, some say cola, some same fruity pebbles, etc. Some of the negatives say medicine, mouthwash, Vicks Vapor-rub, etc... lol. This is the widest range of smells I think I've ever seen. Which of these is closest?

    On the Chanel one, most people said a Lemon smell maybe mixed with vanilla (to give a creme' type of smell).
    I am going to be purchasing Happy as soon as I find a good deal. I'm pretty excited about this one based of what you guys have said.
    I actually started another thread asking if anyone knows of a good alternative to VIW. It sounds awesome.

    Maybe a little of all of the above. Like M7 it is complex. To me it has slightly sweet and fruity topnotes and some heavier slightly darker basenotes. Definelty not your typical fruity scent.

    Cool Re: Manly and Fruity?

    I'd listen to her if I were you
    There's a leather note among the fruits that keeps it high on the macho-meter.
    As to the cheapest place to get samples: http://scentmonkey.com/

    Much as I love Nicole Miller for Men, I lucked out in getting the vintage version. The new one lasts about 15 min on me. Not recommended.

    Other cheap--um --inexpensive--runner ups:

    Quasar by J del Pozo--a half-insane fruity aquatic with notes of banana and newspaper print. (No, I'm not kidding.) Actually, it's not bad, even if the notes sound awful---and it is unique

    Homme Nature--by Yves Rocher--don't let the French name frighten you. Super cheap, natural, made in Canada and quite fresh.

    If you can transcend gender marketing it would seem to me that the original l'eau d'issey for women fits your brief nicely. There is no reason whatsoever that this should have been marketed as a feminine fragrance. Also it should be easily available!
