    Default Just Blind Purchased Carlos Santana ... :-/

    I hope I do not get fooled with the old bait and switch for its scent. I deplore blind buys, but due to the immense praise this fragrance got from several other fragrance web sites, I thought I should try. Well, we'll see how it fares. I hope so...

    I must have got a bad bottle, mine smelled extremely synthetic and heavily of alcohol.

    I prefer Tim Mcgraw's Southern Blend over Carlos Santana as the best celebrity scent.

    Gets hyped a bit on here as the best celebrity scent.. personally I don't think it is very good. At first I loved the smell, but after a few wearings, I quickly grew bored of this normal run of the mill fragrance. It also seemed more feminine than I anticipated. Mcgraw Southern Blend is without doubt one of the best cheapy celeb fragrance around, I second that. In the realm of celeb frags overall though, after having tried/tested or owned most of them, I feel there are only a handful worth bragging about, and Carlos Santana is not one of them.

    Does it smell good? Without doubt, but so does CK Escape, yet nobody wants to wear it (nobody I know at least, including myself)

    But, with my personal feelings aside, when you get this fragrance, please let us know what you think, I look forward to hearing your perception on it.

    Best case scenario here : You spray Carlos Santana on and you suddenly have amazing guitar skills.

    Worst case scenario here : You spray Carlos Santana on and you spontaneously combust.
    Seeking: Bottles/decants : of Pomegranate Noir, Midnight in Paris EDP, Feeling Man, Essence of John Galliano, Azzaro pour Homme (vintage),...etc.

    Seeking decant/sample of Aramis Calligraphy Rose, Penhaligon's Esprit de Roi, PdE Ambre Russe, Jil Sander Feeling Man ....etc. I have samples to swap.

    More HERE
    Please PM me !

    Dang, I thought it was gonna be a sweet and calm inviting scent. I obviously haven't gotten it yet but u all are saying it sucks I guess. It was 18.80 for 3.4 oz. I hope it turns our sensual and nice..because now I'm bummed. O well.

    I've tried a lot of the cheapies and the best ones I've found are Tim Mcgraw's Southern Blend, Carlos Santana, Daddy Yankee, and the mentioned Zirh Corduroy. Considering I bought all of these for less than $50 and they save me from burning through my more expensive fragrances I'm very happy that they exist.
