    Default received my rive gauche pour homme today. my opinion

    SIMILARITIES WITH AZARRO:

    just on the first minute, then it turn away from it, going to a more soapy and talc vibe.

    GRANPA OR DADDY COLOGNE?

    yes, it have an old vibe, my girlfriend agreed, BUT, a very good old vibe cologne which bring a charm to men only, not boys. ( mental age above 25 ).

    COMPLIMENTS: just from my girlfriend til now, I received it today 3 hs ago.

    SPRAYS: hot days on day= 1 spray on the chest.
    hot days on night= 2 sprays on the chest.

    if anything new happen about this scent, I will post.


    I M SO HAPPY

    Good scent, but not very good longevity on me.

    Received mine yesterday. Have only tried it once so far and definitely enjoyed it. At the moment I'm saving it for warmer weather.

    Received my bottle as well this week. And I agree, it's a manly scent and not for boys. It also lasts 12+ hours on my skin in the cold weather.

    Just curious to know if you have the older bottle / formula (tall skinny tin can) or the newer cubic box shape Rive Gauche ?

    Classic straight out of the barbershop smell. Shaving cream vibe. Great scent.

    I guess I am the only one who cant stand this stuff. I cant even sell this, I will have to wait to tin cans to disappear before I try and sell again.

    I'm with you brother! I have only tried it on paper but I didn't like it at all. I would like to try it on skin before writing it off.

    Lol does it smell bad to you? I find it to hard to believe that some people can't stand it . It seems like such a likeable scent. Oh well, different noses

    I really enjoy RG.

    Wonderful all-rounder, smelling fresh, soapy, crisp, clean while still remaining fashionably and maturely elegant.

    You're not the only one. I ordered a sample a few years back after reading all the hype, and I hate the stuff. To me, it's just way too dated and mature. It smells exactly like something my grandfather would've worn (and I'm in my early 40s). I just can't imagine this getting very many compliments from any younger or even middle aged women. Also I don't get the shaving cream comparisons either. Granted, I've never went to an old school barbershop, but this certainly doesn't resemble Barbasol or any other shaving cream I've ever purchased. I'm glad many here like it, but it's not for me, and I still have a 2ml sample from two years ago that I haven't even finished.

    I blind bought it at a Walmart the other night at a bargain basement price. I wore it yesterday for casual Friday at my work. I really enjoyed it but longevity was not great for me. I ended up reapplying it every 4 or so hours throughout the day and night. It's a good work scent for me and as a bonus, love the tin. Lol.

    I didn't like it as well the first time I tested it on my skin; my sample sat in my drawer for months. Then, I decided to give it another try -- this time by a full wearing in the office (it takes a man to do this :P) and loved it.

    Lol! Out of curiosity, why do you say this? I found it very safe and about as inoffensive as they come. It didn't even dawn on me that anyone around me would dislike it. Maybe I should reassess. I have it sitting among my most work friendly scents.

    I have forgotten how strong Rive Gauche was, so it was basically a blind wear for me when I wore it for the first time in the office. It was inoffensive mostly, but there was a time in the middle stage, where I thought the patchouli was a little over-powering. So, next time I will do 1/2 (half) sprays instead.

    Yeah, I only do a max of 2 sprays. That's enough to get noticed. Anymore than that and you're probably going to choke people out.

    updating.....

    im becoming worried about rgph, im loosing confidence with this scent, nor even 1 comment about it,not even from close friends, and today, a co worker entering the room looked to the air-conditioner( next to me) and said that since yesterday(monday- the day i started using rgph) that he is scenting a roach smell.

    i thing i m the kind of man that care about what others smell on you.

    RG smells clean, like soap, so I'm not clear what the reference to roaches might be (not that I know how roaches smell). Perhaps said coworker has abundant roaches in his bathroom and less familiarity with soap, so he confuses the two.

    As for compliments, I've never received compliments myself, and my guess is that most compliments really come only when one douses himself so much that people have to pay attention.

    Did you spray any on your clothing? It could also be skin chemistry, which would suck because RGPH is a great scent.

    Was there a giveaway or sale or something? Why is everyone receiving Rive Gauche? Did you all just happen to order it at teh same time?
