    Default Oh, it's on now...

    Playing my Man Card. Just ordered samples of Antaeus, L'Instant pour Homme Extreme, Dior Homme Extreme, and Tobacco Vanille. This may just be the strongest package I'll ever open (insert jokes here).

    You're missing a few (TL), but that sounds like a nice manly package on the way. The one I opened today (TL, TV, OS) was pretty amazing smelling .

    Don't mind me asking, but where did you order them from ? Would love to try out a few of the ones you mentioned.

    Surrender to Chance site. They had a lot that were on my To Try list...these were just the next ones up. Pretty psyched about the two Extremes...Antaeus is loved by many, so I have high hopes for it...Tobacco Vanille just made the list a couple weeks ago. I like Tom Ford scents, but haven't LOVED many yet, so we'll see on that one.

    Manly? True for Anteus, but the rest? All great scents but not very manly...

    That's actually a good list you have going there.

    I like Antaeus and Tobacco Vanille from that list (albeit, with respect to TV, I think another tobacco-laced scent you already love is much better for a lot less money in Costume National Homme). It will be great to hear your thoughts on all of them when they arrive... Enjoy!
    Current Top Favorites:
    1) Portrait of a Lady original formula (EdP Frédéric Malle)
    2) Giorgio for Men vintage/V.I.P. for Men (Giorgio Beverly Hills)
    3) Dia Man vintage edt (Amouage)
    4) Les Nombres d'Or Vetyver (Mona di Orio) - tie
    4) Lalfeorosa (O'driù) - tie

    6) Anat Fritz Original Formula and Classical (Anat Fritz)
    7) Captain vintage (Molyneux)
    8) Tzora (Anat Fritz)

    Sorry, scent-imental, I did mean DHIntense. Just used to everything being called extreme, not intense. Drseid, while I absolutely love CN Homme, unless I put my nose directly on my wrist, I can't smell it. It was after posting that that someone suggested TV...so I looked into it a bit and decided to give it a shot.

    Sounds like someone is going to be busy sampling the next few days! Happy and jealous for you.

    Do yourself a favor, sample the Tobacco Vanille on a cooler day. It smells so much nicer in cool than in hot and humid. I made that mistake...

    I agree. LIDGPHEE, DHI and TV are all pretty unisex, in my opinion. My wife has taken a recent liking to Tobacco Vanille. The other two are nice, gender neutral gourmands to my nose.

    Nice choices. You should enjoy most or all. And yes, they are manly choices.

    One of the highlights since I've been in this hobby was definitely ripping open the package of Millisime Imperiale, Green Irish Tweed and Aventus samples.
    Where I live, there is not a single Creed boutique, so testing the fragrances I mentioned could only be done through ordering samples.

    After seeing them all over the place on YouTube and on here, it was like a dream come true opening them up.
    Enjoy the samples
