    Default ROMEO GIGLI POUR HOMME: green juice vs. pink juice

    I bought a bottle of Romeo Gigli Pour Homme several years ago, and I've never liked it. To me, it smells like a make-up bag with cotton candy. Seriously. The color of the juice is pink.

    However, the reviews I've read describe this as nothing like the stuff I have. In fact, the reviews make me want to try it again. Also, most of the bottles I've seen have a green colored juice.

    Can any of you explain this? Did I get the wrong bottle?

    Don't know bro. I have the nuclear green juice and it has a healthy dose of civet in it.

    I get some spices, herbs, honey, florals... There´s a lot going on with this superb scent.
    " make-up bag with cotton candy " - not really, but you never know!
    If you like, I could send you a sample.

    I've often had the same thoughts as you. But my problem is compounded by my being partially colour blind. I think the bottle is pink looking, but held against some lights it seems greenish too.
    Whatever it is I own, it's okay, but nothing that I find compelling.

    Just to clarify, are we talking about Romeo Gigli per Uomo ? That is what it says on the bottom of my bottle.
    Seeking: Bottles/decants : of Feeling Man, Gucci pour Homme, Essence of John Galliano, Nicole Miller (vintage), Opium pour Homme, Oxford & Cambridge...etc.

    Seeking decant/sample of Jil Sander Feeling Man, Cacharel Nemo, Bijan for Men EDC, Lanvin for Men, Giorgio VIP, Il Lancetti and other old school frags ....etc. I have samples to swap.

    I have the green liquid and I don't get the cotton candy idea at all. It's got a lot going on, it's subtle (remember I usually spray once or twice at most, and try to avoid top notes), and it's nicely blended.

    Perhaps what you own is the female version? There is one reviewer that suggests that this is a female perfume (which is not listed?). The one is have is green and says uomo on the bottom too. It's only a little bit sweet.

    That it could be it. It's hard to imagine that there would be such a great difference in color.
