    Default You're having a nightmare...

    In this nightmare, you douse yourself heavily in a cologne you can't stand, and you can't scrub it off. You have a very busy day and will be meeting people at work, then you are going out to dinner, followed by a Friday night in the club with all sorts of dignitaries.

    The Fragrance you're wearing is__________

    Without fail, once it began to dry down, it always smelled like minestrone soup on my skin!!!

    This. So much this. And it has actually happened to me. I've used a bonbon sample of Wall Street before going to work. I ended up begging my coworker for wet wipes to get it off my wrists as soap didn't budge it.

    As it does not have to be a men's scent in particular, I'd say 'an overdose of 'La Vie est Belle'.......
    Can handle 1 spray of the stuff (on a woman that is) but an overdose.......on myself.......the horror
    My Top '11':

    - Paco Rabanne: Pour Homme (vtg)
    - Antaeus (vtg)
    - Azzaro: Pour Homme (vtg)
    - Armani: AdG Profumo
    - Jacques Bogart: Furyo
    - Guerlain: Héritage (vtg)
    - Thierry Mugler: A*men
    - SA: Al Basel
    - D&G: Pour Homme (vtg)

    Regular (1995) Hugo by Hugo Boss, though would not consider its flankers that much of a nightmare
