    Default "Stop The (Flanker) Madness" Campaign: La Nuit de L'Homme Frozen Cologne

    Nice folks there at L'Oreal/"YSL" have done it again:
    Just what the world needed...Another flanker of L'Homme, or to be precise a flanker of a flanker... Yawn...
    Am i being too harsh here?

    Depends what it smells like!

    ...But I imagine I'd rather have a new stand-alone release, or even better, a re-release of original M7!

    Ya they are just capitalizing on the success of Nuit (which I love). They can't fool the nose however. Will have to try it out.

    Guess the original was quite a success. I've not smelled any of them yet. Must keep up, or not.

    I keep hearing of L'Homme flankers I have never seen. L'Homme Summer? Is that out in the US?

    If it smells good, who really cares? Just scratch the name off the bottle if it bothers you so much.

    I find it funny how you guys curse YSL for releasing flankers in the L'homme line, but are totally on board as Guerlain continues making Homme and Habit Rouge flankers.

    Eheh, sure i dont hate anything before or after I test it Hating is just a waste of time, and I like to keep things in perspective!

    Actually the "Stop the Madness" thing is just a small pun on the campaign with same name that Roadrunner Records ran in the 80's/90's against the use of drugs and has been since used here and there with anything people consider is getting "too much"...

    Actually there's no "madness" in releasing flanker-after-flanker-after-flanker, in reality it shows shrewd calculism and in plain commercial terms it makes perfect sense.

    If there was anything i could call "madness" (in a good way) was releasing M7 in 2002, in the way it was a bold, daring risk at the time...heck, it was a release before it's time, IMO!

    I gotta say, I'm pretty excited about a new L'Homme flanker. Simple as that. I'll definitely get it when it comes out.

    So really you are saying "STOP THE MADNESS OF MAKING TONS OF MONEY!!!"

    How about "D.A.R.E...... to keep kids off of YSL L'Homme flankers!!"

    Hating is all relative on here. Like, you can say that you really hate a violet note and we know what you mean...

    If the fragrance is nice then I don't mind flankers (or flankers of flankers!).

    Plus the bottles look cool all lined up together!

    I like flankers except when they don't make sense.

    The summer flanker of L'Eau D'Issey doesn't make sense to me because - Issey is already a summery scent as far as I'm concerned. Wheras Issey Intense is more wearable in other seasons, because of its added woods.

    The summer flankers of Kouros make more sense - to me it's best as a summer scent, but I know others wear it in other seasons.

    By way of contrast all the summer flankers of Joop PH make total sense, as Joop is pretty overpowering in summer.

    Regards,
    Renato
