    Thumbs down Today I Regret Buying......

    A 5ml "Travalo" atomizer full of Black XS for $20 from Perfumania... I don't have any idea what I was thinking... so now I have to buy the real thing and refill the atomizer to make it feel worth my while.. or just find a friend with Black XS and steal his

    What did you buy today (or recently) that you regret?

    Ed Hardy - Love and Luck. Was a blind buy though. Don't get much projection or longevity :/ I'll try it on a very hot day in the next few months

    Aramis... Not really bad, but there was some underlying unpleasant accord that made it unappealing to me. It was dirt cheap, so no biggie.

    @drseid - I hate Aramis as well, reminds me of Kouros, smells like a cheap drugstore frag

    @teemas - I'm still considering buying that

    The Concentrate version gets rid of the dirt/fecal/indolic disagreeable note. Not actually stronger but cleaner.
    ointments and perfume delight the heart....

    Ralph Lauren Pony #2. I think I've worn it three or four times in the time that I owned it. I've since moved onto better things.

    6 skinny ties at Dillards on clearance. At 6 foot and 202, I'm still too chunky for them. At least I did not pay full price!

    Nothing today.
    Don't worry, 5ml is more than enough Black XS for anyone to own.
    Just wash out the atomizer with something nuclear and you've got a nice carrier to fill with something decent.

    Never have any regrets with anything I buy luckily.

    S.T. Dupont pour Homme. Like the top notes, even the dry down is nice for a scent of its kind, but it just doesn't last all that long on me. It's on Ebay, try it :-)

    Still on the fence - Pure Malt. It just seems pretty familiar, that berry vanilla (24 Gold? Animale Animale?) and also not that strong/long lasting. I wish it was a bit rougher/darker like A*Men. Will have to try it a little more. It is nice but just doesn't reach the highs of scents such as for example DHI. Also, when I wore it and went down the shop, some girls said something about pure malt whiskey...not sure if they were talking about me lol. I have not drunk whiskey in a long time so can't judge if it reeks of it. To me it smells mainly like berries, a bit fruity, a bit young.
