Just thought I'd jump in here and mention that probably almost a year ago I just started getting into fragrances and you mentioned that you really liked Guerlain's AA Pamplelune and after sampling many times I finally got round to pulling the trigger on a bottle and have been wearing it quite often and loving it. Tart citrus with warm vanilla and more. Really enjoyable experience, so thanks for the recommendation professor! and inspired by you, I decided to take the ultimate "fcuk it" test of manliness and bought myself a bottle of Chanel no.5 (Eau Premier) which I've really been on the fence about for months and months. Can a straight mid 20's dude pull this off? and, I used your BN's thread on cracking the Chanel code so I figured out my bottle was pretty recent and fresh, phew. Prof Fab saves the day again ! I've been comparing Vetivers... SOTD today was Givenchy's Vetiver
... sort of limey/citrusy, a whole mix of things I couldn't really pick out. Nothing that really caught my attention. Pretty subtle/low key, I basically forgot I was even wearing something... now BN's reviews are basically 23+ and 0
neutral or negative... am I missing something? Maybe because it's so "true" to vetiver? I'm just bored though. Like/not Guerlains for example, at least it's an opinion.
