    Sorry for recommending SM to you! I have to say, though, it's been a lot of fun to chart your reaction from "hmm, not so bad" to "oh, I'm kinda not liking this" to "this is revolting and is ruining my appetite."

    no way man!!, i totally appreciate your recommendations . keep them coming and i want to try them too. it was worth fulfilling my curiosity. i dont take the negative reaction i have to the parfum as actually a 'negative' if you know what i mean. just a taste of the broad spectrum out there on fragrances. but yeah, i cant handle that fragrance anymore.

    Sho'nuff, How much do you have left? Maybe we should do a round robin so others on SOTD can try SM. You send it to me and I try a dab, I send it to the next person, etc. Just trying to keep it interesting here!

    today, PdN Baladin - meh, it's okay, just not that interesting and lacks projection or longevity.

    L'Incandescent - how did you find the projection and longevity of the Ungaro III? I was disapointed. actually I don't even understand the reviews 'cause I didn't really get a 'gothic rose' scent there... Cannabis rose however I find goes strong for 14-16 hours or more and projects like crazy. Strong stuff that.

    Funny enough I bought Baladin blind and never grew to like it. It's like a weak version of Aramis / Azuree.

    ^^ not unusual to come back around on a scent that didn't work out the first time. Happened to me a number of times.

    Although, if a scent makes me queasy, that's it. It ain't going to not make me queasy in the future.

    Today - old school: Azzaro Pour Homme. Aromatic fougere, which is to say: lavender, vanilla, rosemary, anise. Kind of stuck in the 70's but happy all the same.

    It's good to be me. At this point it cannot be denied.

    today, PdN Baladin - meh, it's okay, just not that interesting and lacks projection or longevity.

    You know, I actually thought the Ungaro III had pretty impressive projection and longevity. I could still smell it after about 10 hours. It's hard to make a judgment after one wearing, but I think I'm going to like it quite a bit. It is different from what I'd been led to expect by the reviews, though.

    The Cannabis Rose has extremely strong longevity and projection. I actually overapplied a little bit, not realizing how strong it was. I think I'm going to like that one a lot too.
