no wonder! enjoy!
So it was going to be over 40 degrees Celsius today, and it was off to the beach. I put on 8 sprays of Rive Gauche PH in order to have something fresh on me for the car trip.
At the beach I meet two female acquaintances. One started sniffing me continually, saying it was the best male scent she'd ever smelled.
The other did the same and said "If I was your wife and you were wearing that, I'd be jumping all over you".
They both wanted to know what it was called and where to buy it.
After an hour of this I decided it was the wisest course to go into the water and rub it off.
Funny thing is - I've never been particularly fond of Rive Gauche PH.
no wonder! enjoy!
Next time try one spray
You mean to say in other words that you got called "that cologne smelling guy"
Which 'spot' you spray on?
Some fragrances should come with a stick to beat them off.
Was this the new one or the vintage as the latter gives me all day longevity with just one spray. Eight sprays - aaahhhhhhh run for your life!
Wife couldn't stand the current formulation of RG so I have kept away from it, and that's with one spritz...
Still not managed to get hold of the original though
was it the old rive gauche (the tall tin bottle) or the new one (cubic bottle) ?
I love Rive Gauche PH, but I wouldn't dare put on more than 2 sprays of it, especially in the 40C/100F weather(!)
Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve other individuals' acknowledgement or respect.
That's the power of Rive Gauche
Don't know, but the RG i have is kinda weak. Some of my spanish friends feel the same way about it... so sad...
... And do me a favor - don't disturb my friend. He's dead tired.
Welcome to the Bwahahaha! era...
TUM TUM PISH!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Ha! I'm wearing Rive Gauche today! I want half the reaction you had!
Actually, I usually only wear 6 sprays of anyy scent, but was worried it might conk out in the heat.
I need not have worried - it is now 15 hours later, and my shirt is still putting out reasonable strength Rive Gauche. And it's 3am and the temperature outside which had dropped to 30C, has just risen to 33C.
Don't forget though - it's cold where you are, and Rive Gauche is very fresh. I'd be wearing thick non-fresh scents for that sort of weather.
On the other hand, it's a good experiment to see if it works well in cool weather.
Great fragrance indeed, almost irrespective of the reactions (that may well be a pleasant bonus just the same).
