    Occasionally it actually happens! However after a long, long, very long time! :D
  87. Re: New Armani code Eau de Parfum!? Anybody try this one yet?

    I always sympathised with the original, but never enough to buy a full bottle. Maybe this flanker gets a chance.
  88. Re: Recommendations next purchase ( any good or must here ? )

    Most certainly Cartier, quoted above in my post! As per Parfum flanker, I really loathe that one. I find the original EdT to be much better.

    Although some time has passed since I tried Narciso...

    Azzaro Pour Homme
    Creed Aventus
    YSL Kouros
    Dior Fahrenheit

    On the more flexible side, depending on the season:

    Dont worry, sometimes it takes even more than a month. It'll appear...eventually.
  91. Re: Got Pi by Givenchy as present, is this really an ok male fragrance?

    It's a fine wear for males, albeit more for the winter, preferably evening.

    Re: Most overrated fragrances

    I love it, but does it deserve all that hype? No! I'd take even the reformulated Azzaro Pour Homme sooner than YSL, but still I'm glad I have it.

    Re: Clean and safe all-round Spring-Summer sent

    Plenty of very good suggestions here, so I've nothing much to add.

    Givenchy Pour Homme
    Hermes Terre d'Hermes
    Prada Amber/Man
    Prada Luna Rossa
    Guerlain Homme EdP
    Chanel Allure Homme Edition...
  98. Re: Which one ? Allure Edition Blanche or Guerlain L'Homme ideal Cologne

    The reason I'd take Guerlain L'Homme Ideal Cologne is because it's discontinued. That being said, Allure Homme Edition Blanche is more sophisticated and overall a better fragrance.
  99. Re: Luna Rossa Carbon by Prada, is Rich in Lavender ?

    That's my opinion since the first time I smelled it.

    I just ordered YSL M7 Oud Absolu because the price is not too steep and it's supposedly discontinued.
