    Default I could use some help!

    I'm going to pick up something off ebay this evening after paypal sent me a coupon, but I'm not quite sure what to get. Please give me your thoughts on the options! Some are obviously more expensive than others, but all are from about 40-80. I'm really leaning to something vintage and have found some good deals.

    Any of the first five or the last would be excellent options. My preference would be the first. Happy choosing!

    Well vintage GG and vintage HR EDC are two of my favorite things, ever, so my vote is obvious.

    Vintage Gentleman is special, and is more different than its current formulation than the other vintage frags listed here are different than their respective new formulations.

    I've been hoarding many bottles of this myself lately.
    Rare, vintage, and niche off-site sales.
    Magnificent niche splits on offer.
    New atomizer and decanting supplies for sale.

    Vintage Gentleman, although I prefer the new formulation because its less forceful.

    If you can handle the patchouli and images of lava lamps and love beads (groovy, baby!) are not conjured up in your mind

    Vintage Givenchy Gentleman

    I ended up realizing how broke I was (funny how a wedding can do that, huh?), but I took all of your input on it and got a vintage Givenchy Gentleman mini. If I love it, the other seller and a couple full bottles.
