    Interesting thread!

    For me, safe does not always mean boring. I think De Bachmakov by TdC is the among the most safe scents I've ever smelled, but the stuff is absolutely marvelous. It smells like a perfect spring morning. It's one I look forward to wearing. That being said, I did start a thread about De Bachmakov, asking if it was too nice. If it had a bit more edge to it, it could be a perfect ten for me, but even as is, it's at least a 9. I love it.

    On the other hand, there are definitely scents that bore me after a while and I find that I don't reach for them anymore. Just as you said in the original post: "Something that you like but don't love and never reach for.." Bois D'Argent. It's excellent, but for some reason, it's a like, not a love, and I never reach for it. It's been months and I haven't even finished a 2.5ml sample.

    I'd say YSL L'homme or perhaps DG light blue. I like the both but they don't get reached for often.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    Oh, it's plenty offensive.

    I've culled out most of the 'uninteresting' bottles from my wardrobe. I don't hold back on most of what I wear in the office on a daily basis (though Knize 10 doesn't wear at work). Almost all of what I have left have something that I find interesting. That said, CdG Amazinggreen is pretty safe and I don't wear it much as I always reach for something more interesting.
