    People in the real world don't care about reformulation - especially if someone else is wearing the scent they're smelling. Why on earth would they?

    While I can't say I'm on the Aventus bandwagon (yet, may have to buy a full 1 oz....) I can see why a woman wouldn't like Tuscan Leather. It just doesn't strike me as sensual, or even all that inviting. It's masculine to the core but to me it feels like a man's man scent. Men love it, and women love men who love it, but I'd imagine most women don't love it themselves. Just my two cents

    Hahahaha I hear you but I just can't wait that long. Call me selfish but if the entire building doesn't want to spend the hot summer's day smelling Black Aoud then they shouldn't have let me in the door

    I should also note that I've never gotten any positive unsolicited feedback from Aventus. When I asked for opinions, I was told "It's nice." I enjoy the stuff, but it's not something I wear on dates anymore.
    YES. You are doing it right sir. I spray 5-6 sprays of LDDM early in the night when I'm not around other people. That way, in about 4-6 hours time when (if) things are going swimmingly and the gap between myself and another female human is beginning to shrink, it has lost its 'spice market' feel and has, as you said, evolved into something else that is just magical and fucking sexy. I feel like I sing it's praises far too much, but I can honestly say it has never, ever failed me.

    Oh... and the longevity you mentioned. It is herculean. Doesn't matter what you get up to, the next morning you STILL get compliments which is a real godsend. You know what I'm talkin bout.

    I currently have no girlfriend, but am accepting applications if any female members are interested.

    The last one loved Neroli Portofino. Loved loved loved it. Prior girfriends (just in the past, say, three years) have preferred Chanel Bleu, D&G The One, and Green Irish Tweed.

    I'm still surprised too! But I think that she is more sensitive to the sweet ambery vibe that unfolds on me (a matter of body chemistry maybe). I have to mention that her nose is way better than mine.
    I'm sure she likes woody/ambery frags though.
