    Default Is there a frag that we all (or most) can agree on that smells great?

    Since we are all individuals with different styles, tastes, etc there are always conflicting reviews for colognes (or anything for that matter). 2 reviews will say its the greatest thing ever and the next 2 will say its crap. Is there a fragrances thats widely regarded as good that most ppl hear can agree smells nice and possibly would wear? I see Green Irish Tweed is almost worshiped around here but is there anything else?

    Impossible.

    Theres some fragrances that please 90% of the people, but there will be always the others 10%. Or Vice Versa.


    Maybe Vintage Tabarome will please 99%, but the 800usd per bottle dont please even 1% of them!

    yea I know its impossible for a scent for EVERYBODY to 100% agree on. I mean is there something that most ppl find attractive. at least a 85% approval rate

    I would love to check out GIT but i dont know of any stores here in NYC that sell it. I need to test it first. Its too expensive to blind buy.

    I know many people who don't care for powerful old-school scents like Vintage Tabarome and Azzaro. Then again I haven't met a person who doesn't like the smell of a fine natural cologne such as Guerlain' Imperiale. There are negative reviews, yes, but they are about lack of longevity.

    Is there a fragrance that we can all agree smells great?

    I hope not. Because whatever it is probably isn't anything with more than a drop or two of mystery.

    i dont know man, i think thats a pretty interesting question! imagine if we all decided there was one we all t5hought smelled good??? not to say its the best or everyones favorite or the true #1 or anything, just that we all LIKE it! i like this idea very much... the idea of agreeing with everyone all at once rather than disagreeing... cant you see the good in that?? plus, i betcha that cologne will sell better!

    haha I have 2 kids I know exactly what you mean.

    For the record I havent met a woman yet that didnt like YSL L'Nuit or JPG Le Male. Both get tremendous compliments across the board when I wear it.

    I'm one of the minority who doesn't like Azzaro at all. I think as close as you can get is GIT by Creed. I'm very sensitive to any harsh or rough ingredients in frags, and this one passes the test.

    Definitely check it out. I always wear it when I want to make a impression. Never fails to get a compliment. I know some say its overrated but ive had nothing but positive experiences with it...except that one time I sprayed too much on and gave myself a headache after a while, but that was my own fault lol

    Right on with this. I don't think that anyone would find Guerlain Imperiale unpleasant.

    Is it really that good or is it getting these high marks because its a "classic" and respected by fragrance lovers? does it smell dated or for older people? if it came out today under a different name, would it still be embraced?
    sometimes i feel like some of these get great marks for classic and for nostalgic purposes, but im curious how the scent would stand alone. (i've never smelled it but thought about picking it up)

    another one i noticed that has a great ratio is Burberry London
    105 Positive Reviews • neutral34 Neutral Reviews • negative 7 Negative Reviews
    never smelled this one either but im going to soon. seems like the guys like this one but im not sure if the ladies do?

    Azzaro PH is really that good. If Montale released Azzaro pour Homme today and called it "Djibouti Ochre" Basenoters would be hocking their Rolexes to buy it.

    I'm not sure if it's a great candidate for a fragrance that everyone would immediately like though - I hated it when I first tried it, I thought it was a sour, acrid mess. That opinion changed quite dramatically, obviously.
