    Question New and not sure what to get..

    I've had some stuff before but mostly when I was a teen, so I've got into a somewhat mood of wanting to some some new smells and I ended up getting this and a few samples..

    D&G Masculine full size (blind buy)

    samples:

    Xerjoff 40 Knots

    A lab on fire:Almost transparent

    Splash:
    Versace Man Eau Fraiche

    I was kind of wondering how each will smell or are they all going to smell kind of similar?

    Almost Transparent Blue is a nice aldehydic citrus scent with lime being a key player, slightly woody in the dry down.

    As a starter you should have Bleu de Chanel in your starting line up mike

    Good call - agree.

    Ok a little update so I put on a little D&G Masculine and the scent does not last that long at all I mean almost 2 hours later it's just skin level and I only did 4 sprays.

    Hope the other stuff above listed lasts longer.. I can hardly smell it on myself now.

    Oh no dude don't worry i don't mess with anything that doesn't last long. I don't care how good something smells, if it doesnt last atleast 6-8 hours i don't even consider owning it. D&G frags in general don't last very long.. D&G the one being the worst. Bleu de chanel & chanel allure homme sport are decent frags also.

    I have dry skin so I did 10 sprays this morning on myself before I left and about 2 hours after I hardly had any smell at all.. having dry skin does not help I suppose.

    Try using an unscented lotion.. it helps with longevity. But wait about 15min after you apply the lotion to put on your fragrance. I use vaseline brand but aveeno makes a good unscented lotion also. I also use unscented bodywash/soap so the scents from the soap don't clash with my fragrance.

    Thanks for a tip.. I'm picky about unscented stuff because sometimes it still has a trace of a scent
