    I dunno, but it sure smells a lot like starting threads for the sake of it...

    Eau de Cartier. You need to be a sniffer dog to perceive it. If you manage you're confronted with a joyless, anaemic, little brother of Declaration.

    The nothingness in most of the designer perfumes we smell.

    That sharp generic note thats skewed to smell citrusy, maybe fruity and floral. Then finally closed down with either musky nothingness Auranone or woody nothingness Norlimbanol.

    for swap/sale:

    Those aren't the anti-fragrance. Those are focus-group-dollar-seekers. Safe for the suburbs because that's what sells.

    In all seriousness...

    Fragrance = fragrant.
    Anti = against or adverse to.

    Thus, common sense tells us, anti-fragrance means against fragrance or adverse to fragrance, meaning clean with no applied scents.

    In my swap list: Gucci Pour Homme (2003) BNIB.
    I'm looking for Reflection Man or Andy Warhol (silver bottle w/Andy's face)

    All of those sorts those seemingly made to sell by shock instead of really to wear, like secretions, blood groups, black gaga containing own blood styles, that sort of thing.

    (I add that I have only smelled the first one of these and not the others, so apologies in advance if I am wrong with those).
