    Default Gift Certificate at Macys

    Hey guys, i received a gift card for 50.00 at Macys and figured i'd go buy a new scent with it. I'm mentioned in previous posts that I've dwindled down my collection from 40+ bottles down to 10 and almost all are Niche, so i figured why not add a nice quality designer scent. I thinking of stopping by during my lunch break and picking up one of the following:

    Chanel Bleu
    Prada Amber Intense
    YSL La Nuit

    Or any other suggestions for something that can found at Macys.

    Thanks

    I may be in the minority but I have always enjoyed Ferragamo F Black. At least take a sniff.

    + 1. Excellent underrated fragrance. Good compliment getter also.

    From your list, I would say Chanel Bleu. Didn't care for it the 1st time I tried it about 6 months ago. Received a sample yesterday and tried it again. Fell in love with it, and went a bought a full bottle last night.

    Out of the three, I would say Chanel Bleu. Akahina made a good suggestion. Ferragamo Black would be a better choice (just so happens to be my SOTD).

    I'm leaning towards Bleu. Out of my collection i have a lot of unique frags that fit the bill for different settings but something like Bleu just seems like a very easy wear, everyday type of scent and from what i remember had pretty good performance. Plus doesn't hurt that the ladies love it

    When it comes to the ladies, you're better off with Egoiste. At least, you won't smell like 1 out of 3 guys other there wearing Bleu.

    original egoiste or Platinum?

    You may want to also test Mont Blanc Legend. I believe they still carry it. It's a more mature version of A&F Fierce. When I tested it I got about 2 hours of Platinum Egoiste and then it dried down into more of a smooth Fierce. Not bad and a good price for what you get.

    Chanel Bleu
    YSL La Nuit
    I have these two and enjoy both. I take monetary considerations into account when shopping at Macy's (or Sephora, etc.). If I can find the fragrance elsewhere for cheaper, I avoid getting it at these retailers, but if I can't, I have no problem spending a good amount for something I enjoy. In this case, Chanel is a lot harder to find outside of retailers, so I would vote Bleu.

    Out of those 3, go for the Prada or Chanel.

    I have that scent and like it, but there may be something in it that I'm sensitive to; to where I can sneeze and perhaps be irritated. Don't know if it's because of (a) synthetic ingredient(s) or what. Cool bottle too.

    La'Nuit gets my vote. Bleu is too generic.

    Default Re: Gift Certificate at Macys

    Bleu has a great dry down but I can't suffer the top notes too well. On your list, I'd go with either Bleu or La Nuit, which is easier for me to wear. Off your list, I agree with Mont Blanc Legend or perhaps a Bvlgari.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    Prada Luna Rossa is new and pretty good

    I'd recommend Armani Eau Pour Homme. I haven't tried the new Nuit version but that might be worth sampling too.
