    Default Thought I Had my Wedding Day Frag..... BACK TO THE DRAWING BOARD!

    Ok So I went down the Bond No. Route... (gotta make my rounds) And got samples of Riverside Drive and Wall St. and Chanel Sent me sycomore.



    I can say that 1st off Most Bond's dont have great projection and most also wear very close to the skin. I didnt get the Eau De Parfume vibe at all. Riverside smells like a more well done Chanel Platinum and Wall St. is a well done spice/Aquatic (cucumber)

    When the Sycomore samples came in I was very excited initially. The 1st spray I was like WHAT THE F$%& I got my suit and tie frag. I was set. The "end all be all". Then the dry down hit and I was disappointed.


    SO! I'm back to the drawing board. Wedding is in Sept. Funny I brought home Bond Madison Square for my fiance and she LOVED IT and thats gonna be her wedding day frag lol so at least one of us won out lol

    So Ive been hearing about dior intense and being I have Dior Homme reg I was gonna Blind Buy intense but FragrenceNet is out of stock and Ive herd other retailers are kinda shady. ALSO New Haarlem IS a winter fall frag but the women LOVE IT. One is basically saying if it smells good it smells good. So I'm kinda torn.



    I need help guys

    Yea, Grey Vetiver is very nice, but not wedding day material IMO.

    I second the Lumiere Noire. I bought this for my best friend when I was his best man, it's definitely great.

    I second PdN New York -- marriage is a celebratory occasion, but also something pretty serious, hence something a bit more classical but classy at the same time.

    May 1st. 1971 I wore a fragrance then known as Chanel For Men. You know what It's called now. May be a good omen.Even if it isn't It's still a damn good fragrance. Good luck man.
    Don't panic. Just stay calm, and reload....

    The two that spring to mind are Encre Noire (similar to Sycomore, but different drydown), and Dior Homme.

    Best of luck!

    Chez Bond TO ME smells like Riverside Drive shy little brother. In a 3 piece suit I might as well where nothing lol.

    I already have Dior Homme and had it for a while. I wished I would've discovered it late because it IS one of those James Bond in a Bottle smells. But I need a new one. Something impressionable.

    Hang on, wait a minute. You're looking for 007's scent? Is that D Craig's Bond as he sips on his martini or when he was strapped naked to the chair frame, hvg his nuts busted??

    If you're above 30 yrs try a light spritz of Grey Flannel. Nobody will mistake it for the bride's fragrance, I can tell you that. Throw the rest of your fragrance budget for some honeymoon shopping.

    LOL funny.

    The David Craig James Bond while he was driving in his new Ashton Martin to the Hotel to play million dollar poker In Casino Royale is the vibe I want.
