LOL! Maybe I just associate it with my wife, rendering it unwearable for me
We have a full bottle of it and it's an amazing scent! It's one of my wife's "date night" fragrances. It is really great, but I couldn't imagine wearing POAL for myself. I'm not really big on florals or scents with massive projection like that for me. We're both big fans of FM though. My wife's "work scent" is L'eau d'Hiver and I have full bottles of Geranium Pour Monsieur and Bois d'Orage (French Lover).

Wearing The Archetects Club by Arquiste today. I smell like vanilla cupcakes.
@TweedyProf, I don't have any Rain last (yet, MTO burg bal boots arriving in the next couple of weeks), but here's a side by side shot of 348 vs Forest last if it helps.
Thanks Steve, I appreciate it, although I know I got a ridiculous deal!
Whoo! Carmina shell for $446 with the code?! Just placed an order for these:
I'm not sure if this is the case, so apologies if it isn't, but from your questions it seems like you are newly purchasing shoes of a higher quality than you previously were wearing. In general, I find that your sneaker size in the well known brands is often a full size higher than your dress shoe size from the better makers. If you ordered your Cheaneys are the same size that you have previously been wearing for sneakers and glued shoes they very likely are too big. Here...
