    I'd rather say the one I love much stronger than (seemingly) others is Aigner Black. A terrific scent.

    I think Bvlgari Man is quite nice, and don't get the bad reviews and lack of respect it seems to have.
    Wife likes that one alot too. She chose it as best out of several men's colognes I asked her opinion on.

    Deauville Pour Homme by Michel Germain.

    A great fragrance that often can be found cheap, yet it gets almost no love on Basenotes.

    Long time lurker, first time poster:

    I think it is a great reflection of these forums that a discussion like this can be had (ON THE INTERNETZ!!!) without a massive flame-war errupting! Bravo!

    That said, I think a lot of "over-rated" scents are actually just popular scents that become too familiar to the nose. Such as pleasant company that has stayed beyond their welcome.

    I agree wholeheartedly. Thank you for your bravery. I think it smells like hand lotion, specifically one called Aquamarine. My mother used it back in the day.

    Here, probably Pure Malt? Didn't it have its own extra section even, just for Pure Malt discussion, or was that something else? It's not a bad scent though but I'd consider it massively overrated. Perhaps Aventus too, but I have not tried it yet, it could be amazing.

    Aventus is nice...but not so as to talk about it on every thread on every board every day every where....

    One persons overrated is another persons underrated. Therefore its a pointless thread. As pointless as your comment.

    Default Re: Name an unnecessarily OVERRATED frag you know or own!!!

    I can see that to a brand new member it might be a little confusing to see overrated and underrated conversations in the same thread. Maybe the word "pointless" didn't convey what was meant?

    It isn't always easy to strike a balance between not bumping an old thread and starting new threads when the subject has been recently discussed. Since there had been no activity to the thread in more than six months, another way to approach it might be to start a new thread in the Just Starting Out area, asking either what scents are over-rated or what scent are under-rated and linking to this older thread for reference, assuming your intent is to get that kind of information, and not to stir the pot.

    It was pointless in the first place as the answer to anyone who isn't completely blinkered is Aventus.



    Time to lock the thread ?

    I don't think it's pointless. It's interesting. Helpful? Maybe not that much.

    I do find some worthwhile insight here. Creed makes wonderful fragrances, but for me they do not last very long. I can't see spending so much on vaporware, especially Aventus. That's what I also found with Guerlain Corolian. Beautiful bottle and appealing combination of notes, but... after an hour it was gone.

    So n00b status is an adequate defense to necroposting for the sole purpose of a threadcrap (yes, internet lingo!)? It would seem more likely that it just exacerbates the frustration caused by such behavior.
