    Default Some opinions from my fellow cologne lovers

    Hey guys

    Finally signed up with my email address so I can actually say
    something now. Just wanted to mention 2 things to you. First of
    all, I have two colognes that I NEVER see mentioned or reviewed on
    cologne websites (all 2, and now only 1 of them) and I wanted to get
    you guys' opinion on them. The first is Jovan Ginseng NRG. You can
    get the stuff at walmart for VERY CHEAP (15 bucks for a 1.7 oz), and
    that's probably why no one else seems to have it but me, because they
    think its garbage (which is true for the VAST majority of colognes at
    Wal-Mart). It SMELLS so good and fresh!! I have gotten NUMEROUS
    compliments on how good I smell, and "What is that you're wearing?"
    Seriously guys, I would DEFINITELY recommend this cologne as a daily
    cologne, one that you would wear to class, the gym, anytime you want
    to smell nice but don't want to use that 60 dollar stuff. The other
    cologne that I am a huge fan of is Claiborne Sport. This stuff
    smells GREAT! And like Ginseng, it has gotten me NUMEROUS
    compliments. And yet, I never hear anything about it. What do you
    guys think of it? Anyway, just thought I would recommend it to you.
    Secondly, some of you may know about it, but I buy the majority of my
    colognes online through www.fragranceblvd.com. This website works
    GREAT if you can find a cologne that is on sale, which is about half
    of them. I bought a 1.7 oz of Claiborne Sport for 18 dollars
    INCULDING SHIPPING AND HANDLING!!! The 1.7 costs 37.50 at Wal-Mart.
    And I bought a sample bottle of the stuff at Wal-Mart and
    compared....it's the real deal. So anyway, if you want a cologne
    that is a little bit old (Don't try for Freedom or Romance), then try
    www.fragranceblvd.com because they will sell them DIRT CHEAP!!! Ok,
    thanks for listening to me ramble. And for further reference, my
    other colognes are Egoiste Platinum (I don't like it, doesn't work
    with my skin too well I think), Curve (for winter and cold nights),
    and Realm (church on Sunday).

    Hi Clay,

    Nice you could join us. If you would like to review Jovan Ginseng NRG
    for the website then go ahead!

    Anyone know of any other 'mass market' colognes that aren't really bad.
    I've got to admit, I 'quite like' Old Spice Whitewater. Its nothing
    like the original Old Spice and is similar to things like Romance or
    Tommy Freedom.

    Good call Grant about Old Spice Whitewater, but I much prefer the
    aftershave over the cologne. It smells better than ANY other
    afterhsave on the market in my opinion. However, at 6 dollars a pop,
    that's twice the price of every other afterhsave, and in my opinion,
    not worth it. I'll just wait until Hudson Salvage closes out a drug
    store and stock up on 90% off bottles of it.

    Hi Clay,

    I'll have to experience the NRG with my next visit to Walmart. I
    eventually wander over to the fragrance dept. while tirelessly waiting
    for oil changes, tires etc... I usually disegarded it, just naturally
    scanning past when seeing "Jovan" displayed. I've ran into other
    proponents of Claiborne Sport, so that's another of the "I'll have to
    look into" category. Also, it's a pleasant surprise to hear someone
    else mention Realm. Definitely a favorite oriental of mine. It's
    hard to understand it's lack of air time. I used it just Yesterday at
    a formal ceremony and got some positive feedback. It was a great
    opportunity to give the Erox corp. a plug. I've sampled Curve and it
    lives up to the buzz. My "next to acquire" category.

    Hello Group:

    Yves Rocher makes a number of excellent men's colognes that
    are quite inexpensive, particularly when they are on sale in
    the Yves Rocher mail brochure which is regularly sent to me
    since I purchased one of their products. I live in Canada but
    I assume the same conditions apply in the U.S.A. and Britain.
    Has anyone else any freedback on these colognes?

    Best Wishes,

    Rob
