    Wink Your top 5 fragrances before you knew Basenotes

    This makes me appreciate basenotes a lot.

    Here are my top 5 fragrances before I visite BN.
    - Cool Water
    - Le Male
    - Chanel Platinum Egoiste
    - One Million
    - Polo Black

    After BN I have a lot of scents for different situations. Now I have some scent that I will use all my life.

    Nice memory exercise.

    XS (mainly that)

    also:

    Jazz
    Azzaro
    some cheap stuff that was supposed to be a copy of Fahrenheit (that one was really good, I emptied 3 or 4 bottles in sequence, and inevitably garnered compliments, way more than the "good" Fahrenheit!)
    some cheap imitation of Cool Water
    some now discontinued or reformulated fragrances from O Boticário

    From those, only Azzaro remains.

    Here is my shitty line up:

    Cool Water (WTF was I thinking? Can't stand it now)
    Acqua di Gio (hate it)
    (the rest are decent)
    Armani Code
    Gucci Envy
    Polo Blue

    Thank God for Basenotes!
