    Is your nose not burning / burnt out after that many scents in one day!!?

    And surely you can't form an opinion on the later ones you tried, as your nose would be fatigued...

    I'd be interested to know what order you tried them in, and if that has affected your preferences? You should try a few at a time, and then come back and review your chart...

    Why would you buy Fahrenheit if you hate it?

    An epic binge. Congratulations! We're all insanely jealous. Might not be every BN-ers taste, but your enthusiasm is contagious. Well done.

    There are at least 3 I would wear in your collection, albeit they are listed between position 11 and 17!

    ... Nice purchase!

    Cool purchase list. Let Fahrenheit grow on you a bit, definitely one of my favorites.

    It's strange how everyone thinks Fahrenheit smells like gasoline. I get a heady/fuzzy aroma from Fahrenheit similar to gasoline but it doesn't SMELL like gasoline. I love the stuff!

    I haven't tried many in your list, but some comments on a couple I have.

    1)Fahrenheit - my favorite from your list, but I can understand your initial distaste. It is raw; smells like a mechanic hanging out with his son who just mowed the lawn after refilling the gas tank. Not only do I like it now but have found occasions for it (hanging out with the boys, barring); however, certainly not a clean smelling scent and I would not wear to work.
    2) Joop and Paco Rabanne - sweet and decent for club; but I will never own either due to other options in this particular category. Still, not bad.
    3) Aqua Toniq - have not tried this one yet, but the original Aqua is solid.
    4) Drakkar Noir - Really? IMO, I think nastalgia gets in the way of some people's perception on this one. Maybe not, but to me this thing, like really no other scent I have tried smells "dated," and "old man." But just IMO (and gf's..)
    Current favorites_____Black Tourmaline_____Gucci Pour Homme II_____Memoir Man_____Tuscan Leather______Montale Aoud and Pine_____Sel Marin_____Invasion Barbare_____Tonka Imperial____Dior Homme Intense_____L'Humaniste____Santal 33_____Bois d'Argent_____Nio_____MFK Oud_____Lumiere Noire_____Bois d'Encens_____Cuir Ottoman

    Now that my nose is more refined, I'm not smelling gasoline like I use to. I get LOTS of violet and leather but its truly an amazing scent. I've heard it was once more than it is even today. A true classic.
    Summer Rotation:

    Versace Pour Homme by Versace
    Cool Water Game by Davidoff
    Tom Ford Grey Vetiver
    H.M. by Hanae Mori
    Vettiveru by Commes Des Garçons
    Riverside Drive by Bond No. 9
    Soon to include "Ab Spirit Silver"

    If smelling good was a crime, I'd be serving a lifetime sentence....

    First smell I got this horribly deep, rich, thick, headache-inducing green smell. Next I got pure gasoline. Now It's absolutely complex and beautiful. I just don't wear it, I've got better options for my tastes!

    He probably blind bought most (if not all of them.) I know in Canada I don't have access to a lot of the niche fragrances so I have to blind buy bottles I can't sample in stores. I have 4-5 bottles I absolutely hate, unfortunately, and another 6-7 bottles I don't really mind for. So I really love only half of my collection.

    It happens.
    Top 5:
    1) La Nuit De L'Homme by Yves Saint Laurent
    2) Lumière Noire pour Homme by Maison Francis Kurkdjian
    3) Royal Oud by Creed
    4) One Million by Paco Rabanne
    5) Allure Homme Sport by Chanel

    From this list, particularly Ungaro III, Declaration Bois Bleu and Fahrenheit truly stand out

    Big purchase! Glad you enjoy almost all of them. I know and enjoy Kouros Body, Red, Ungaro iii, Animale Animale and Fahrenheit.

    Wow, that must be a bit of a record.

    I'm not sure how you can put Lomani ahead of Drakkar Noir.

    And Fahrenheit is a green mossy scent which paved the way for other popular green mossy scents like 212 Men. If you like 212 Men, I can't see how you can stop Fahrenheit from growing on you.

    And, as an interesting historical fact Animale Animale came out a year before A*men, and as such, it is the original mainstream men's chocolate scent.

    If that is the original Joop Homme you have bought, try racing it off against A*men on shirts. My Joop lasts nearly two weeks.

    Renato, I don't know of we can sing the praises of Animale Animale so quick. I got a chance to try out Angel (Women) last week, and it is a dead ringer of AA, pretty much the same smell on my skin. Angel (women) 1992, AA (1994), AMen (1996).

    Animale Animale is a good fragrance though! And at the price hard to beat!

    If only women thought Angel and Animale Animale were the same - I'd have saved a fortune. My wife and earlier girlfriend didn't think Animale Animale was anything much like the far more feminine Angel.
