    Wow, that is harsh! I thought the rule was that you could bring and drink your own alcohol in the passenger cars, just not in the bar car. But I've never traveled by Amtrak, so I could be wrong.

    Prolly mugler from the list. Not sure how it develops over time.
    My first thought on reading the thread title was Geurlain vetiver. Stonking all day performer, all phases are top notch.
    Currently wearing: Vetiver by Guerlain

    ENS is a nice workhorse scent and would have been my pick of the ones you listed. I won’t like the Mugler

    Bottega gets my vote. It sits close to the skin and is a nice mellowed woody scent

    Glad to see Bottega and ENS get some love haha. Ended up going with Mugler, no complaints. A nice refresher after sleeping in the equivalent of a recliner (and I’m 6’ 4” so that’s no easy feat).

    Que scay-je?

    You made a good choice.
    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 my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    I ended up sleeping pretty well - Ambien helps. And for what it’s worth, a 5 year old boy sitting behind me said I smelled really good, so that’s a win in my book!

    Our local train system Caltrain follows this policy. Quite a lot of individuals take advantage of it especially if they were on their way to see a baseball game

    Had you have eaten a couple pounds of boiled cabbage, you could’ve had a car to yourself.
