    Eau Sauvage Parfum also, this stuff just rings totally Niche to me. It's extremely potent juice, love it.

    Spicebomb, definitely. I bought Eau Sauvage Parfum, too, but quickly sold it. I think I wore too much (3 full sprays) and it became cloying and sickening. Maybe if I had stuck to 1 spray...

    Bvlgari Extreme Pour Homme. My pharmacy was selling off some perfumes, and I grabbed this l'il smoothy at $17.95/50ml. It is not a recent release, but it is new to me

    Spicebomb? One spray only? I have a bottle. It doesn't seem to last at all. I can put 5 sprays of this and not be overwhelmed. Am I missing something here? Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

    I think the one spray reference was for Eau Sauvage Parfum which is one of the strongest releases I have sniffed to date (not strong in quality, but rather potency). One spray of that one should be more than enough for most folks.

    I would have mentioned ADG Essenza, Pure Leather, and Spicebomb, but I bought those blindly. All 3 ended up being FBW.

    Pure Leather and Spicebomb, I'd probably lean more to Spicebomb as the leather in the Mugler offering is pretty weak, but its not terrible.

    I really liked Hanae Mori HiM when I tried it a couple weeks ago. I'm gonna give my sample of the EdT a tryout tonight. If I do buy it will be the EdP, because, as with HM, I thought it was richer and more complex when trying them side by side in store.
    I don't have a signature fragrance. My signature changes a little bit every day, why shouldn't my fragrance?

    Ha, well, my tastes are changing somewhat but hopefully they'll still align with some other people's noses. Moreso than ever, I'm removing myself from the hype around a fragrance or a brand, and even removing myself from trying to objectively rate quality, and instead just wearing what I like. That said, I honestly think Encounter is pretty good. It needs skin though, and maybe a few wearings. It didn't click with me at all the first few times I tested it on a card, nor the first time I wore it. I couldn't smell it properly - something was missing. The second wearing on skin and it really came together; a wonderful balance of hot and cold notes, freshness and light and spice and darkness. The troublesome note for me is the jasmine note; sometimes I don't pick it up strongly and then the scent seems off kilter - the fresh notes (a hint of something ozonic maybe... not calone) come through too strongly and it can smell faintly of deodorant. When the jasmine comes through though , it's wonderful (and I don't yet know why the variation; if it's a skin thing, a heat thing, or what...or maybe sometimes my nose just hones in on the fresher notes for some reason?)

    Agreed. None is the perfect amount for me too.

    Same. I bought it after testing it once.
