    I harness worn ESP for a while so its time had come.
    1. No, never blind buy (I do, but do as I say, not as I do. I'm taking no responsibility for your fragrance gambling).
    2. Get them both. You're a Basenoter and you know you're going to end up purchasing them both eventually.
    3. Yes, it has been reformulated.
    4. Looking for a signature scent? You've come to the wrong place.

    I'll grab a sample, thanks! Aside from those two, the other one that comes up frequently as a potential exception to my Creed-aversion is Bois du Portugal. Not that everyone must have a Creed in their collection, but I accept that it might happen some day. (Technically, I have one—GIT Millésime—but it doesn't count, since I plan to divest myself of it.)

    That's actually the most logical explanation for wearing one.

    You will be shocked and horrified with how good of a leather that plastic $8 bottle is, and a dead ringer for the $1,200+ vaulted Creed. Ask Epapsiou. He'll back me up on that one.

    You had me at "shocked and horrified." I've got the smaller $5 bottle on order.

    Funny thing is that I didn't expect to like it at all when I first sprayed it on a testing paper just to get to know how it smells like. I didn't even want to like it because the bottle is silly and I never liked Gucci anyway and somethingsomething, but when I smelled it, I just had to spray it on my hand, too, and then I had to come back for more, and two emptied sample vials later I couldn't tell myself that I don't need it.

    I bought Pegwell Bay from Haeckels some months ago. I also bought an exploration pack and it included Botany Bay so I took the Botany Bay vial with me on a trip and just put it on this morning to give it a try.

    Okay tempted as it's only £14 in the UK.... Is it really that good? Amazon reviews are mixed.

    Wearing Colonia Assoluta by Acqua di Parma as my little girl loves the smell and wearing it a few days to see whether a full bottle should be purchased.

    If you like a zero-nonsense leather/tobacco/clove chypre that makes you feel like you're living in 1895, this stuff is a steal.

    Chanel will always be my favorite house and the one that really sparked my OCD in the hobby. Allure Edition Blanche is a comfort scent and I haven't worn it in a while. Love it!

    Rose & Cuir to get more familiar with it.
    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 hadn't worn Music for a While in several weeks until the other day, and wearing it again reminded me of how much I love it. It's supposed to be pretty warm today, and since the forecast for today is pretty warm weather, I decided to wear it again.

    MFK Acqua Universalis. Giving it another chance, as there's something off-putting about it.

    Hermès Equipage. After days of quality time with Bleu de Chanel and getting to actually enjoy Sauvage, I needed a break from the big oh-so-modern hits. The spices-and-moss of Equipage is just the ticket. Gawd, this stuff is gorgeous.

    Not a lot of people here have a signature that they reach for half of the time or more. I say, if you've found something you love, stick to it! Nothing wrong with a signature scent plus some variety.

    I could have sworn I posted about wearing Dunhill For Men Aftershave (1934) 5 minutes ago, but see no trace
    Anyway, I wore Dunhill For Men Aftershave (1934) as I'd wet shaved and fancied a traditional cooling and pore closing method rather than a lotion.
    Magnificent, but the bottle will soon be empty and I'm unlikely to be able to find a replacement

    Have you checked Fleabay? I don't know if this is what you had but there are a couple vintage D.Men aftershave.

    My wife went out of town for the day, so it seemed like a good time to try Mülhens Men's Classic, recommended as an alternative to Polo—a scent my wife dislikes. Alas, while it's a pleasant enough concoction for the most part, I pick up a stale sweat note (for lack of a better description) that precludes it from entering regular rotation. I don't mind some righteous funk, but this is the wrong kind. So, I will probably send my bottle of MC down the road in the near future.
