    The Acqua di Parma is news to me - I am indeed interested in that one.

    The Chanel, the D&G and the Aramis I'm curious about
    The rest... apart from A di P... nope. Certainly not the big pony series... wtf?

    Mint and pepper are popular this season. I'm glad to not be seeing a lot of ginger.

    The Adidas fragrance sounds good. Sundrenched Woods, Yuzu Leaves & Water Mint. When I was in high school, a huge favorite of mine with the original Moves for Him. One of the best inexpensive scents. I still think it's quite good for a quick splash after the gym.

    The Antonio Banderas also has a good list of notes.

    The Aqua di Parma sounds interesting ( mandarin, clove and muguet is an accord I haven't seen before ). The rest? Not even a little excited, I'm afraid.

    Maybe the Aramis Impeccable: Moroccan cedarwood, patchouli, leatherwood, citrus zest and juniper berries.

    As for the rest, Bleh.

    I'll try the Aramis, the Chanel, and the AdiP, just because the houses have such good track records. The D&G has fennel...interesting, but designers these days have a way of taking an interesting note list and making it shockingly bland.

    I'm also a little curious about the Marc Jacobs Bang, in spite of myself. The name makes me hope there's a gunpowder accord in there or something, but I'm not holding my breath.

    Poor Carolina, not even a mention so far! I'm not really in to big woody notes so we'll see. I will say the bottle design for Bang is awesome, and the Bleu de Chanel is nice too although I think many BNers would prefer they stick to the classic Chanel bottle. Speaking of which, am I the only one who cannot understand why they still haven't used the most obvious name for a men's frag: Chanel No. 5 Homme..?
    OK, so would anyone else like to chime in on what the pro noses have conjured up for us?

    I'll definitely get the Chanel. The Acqua di Parma is a maybe. The others? Meh. I am really hankering right now for the upcoming Creed Aventus.

    Include in your list Davidoff Champion.

    And there also will be unveiled yet non-flankers from Armani, Bvlgari and Loewe. And of course new Guerlain Arsen Lupin.

    Looking forward to sampling the new Chanel fragrance. I really dislike the token Marc Jacobs fragrance for men so I'm not too excited for Bang.

    Excited is a bit strong, but I'll definitely sample a few of those when they come out...

    Me too. I've found love notes in some rather odd places. I'll sniff 'em all and let good sort 'em out.
