    Default Please advise: these are my favorites

    Varvatos
    Spicebomb
    Polo(green)
    Calvin(original)
    Creed GIT

    Thank you for resisting the temptation to advise me to get some taste or to let go of the past. lol

    Knowing that these are my favorites, what other scents would you recommend?

    I tried Guerlain Derby and Antaeus, and found both overpoweringly vulgar. I am typically not into the summertime, citruisy scents either.

    Thanks!

    A good collection. Maybe something a bit different: Creed Selection Verte, Gucci pour homme 2, Penhaligon's English Fern.

    Varvatos, Spicebomb, and GIT are also favorites of mine...so here are some others I have loved (in no order): Mont Blanc Legend, L'Homme (YSL), Dior Homme (This one died quickly on me, so I have a sample of DHI on the way to try), Chanel Egoiste, Guerlain's L'Instant pour Homme (either the EDT or Extreme version), and Bleu de Chanel (okay...I don't LOVE this one, but I do enjoy it...my wife loves it, as do most females that have smelled it on me).

    Hope this helps.

    Spicebomb, GIT, Polo Green. Love em all. Also enjoy Tom Ford's Tobacco Vanille, Tam Dao, Aventus, Midnight In Paris, Dior Homme Intense. Get some samples. I am sure you will like some or all of them.

    Given the propensity toward "spicebomb" and the green of Polo and GIT, I most highly recomend...


    L`Eau au Masculin Lolita Lempicka for men

    That's a fairly diverse group you have there. You may like some of the A*Men flankers (heck, I think you may like the original as well). Midnight in Paris might be to your liking too

    THanks one and all for the advice. I am excited to try some new juices: new to me anyway.
