    The only unscented ones I've seen are anti persperant which I prefer not to use. Do you find the crystal actually works? I used it about 10 years ago and found that by about 4pm I was starting to smell. Maybe now that I'm older ([​IMG] ) my scent will be less.
    Drugstore.com search for Unscented Deodorant - bunch of things there worth trying. I like the Crystal and have been using it for a few years now. The best tips I've picked up were use it damp, use it generously, and make sure you're very clean first. If you don't necessarily shower every day then its probably not the best option since it basically is a breeding ground for bacteria.

    Le Labo Patchouli 24 bath oil for me today. Good alternative to the EDT if you find it to be too much, as I did.

    I also use the Chrystal stick and found it works great. i'm not a heavy or smelly sweater to begin with but it's worked from 8am to 1am no problem for me. As mentioned, the tips are to apply it right after showering, apply rub up and down like 5 times and let the stick dry out. I occasionally spray my stick with rubbing alcohol just incase there's any surface bacteria.

    Now i also got my dad and brother using it and neither of them found it worked, but i have my suspicions they weren't using it right. still, it's like $6-7 and has lasted me a year so far and I've barely made a dent on the stick. I also have broken off a piece and crushed it up into some water in a 50ml plastic atomizer (shake until the rocks are completely dissolved/absorbed) and use it as a spray and it works just as well.

    I'm placing the split order from Aedes and I'm trying to decide what I want for my seven samples. I could use some help if you guys have a minute to look through their lineup. Here's what I've got so far:

    CdG - Kyoto
    Lubin - Idole
    L'Artisan - Nuit de Tuberose & Travers√É[​IMG]e du Bosphore (no idea about this one)I was thinking about 3 Amouages since I've yet to try them and XXV, Dia, and Epic seem to be pretty popular. Anything else worth while from the more obscure brands?

    I'd highly suggest trying their exlusif frag from l'artisan. it's similar to jubilation xxv. The CdG Daphne and Wonderwood seem to be popular. I've heard the costes one is interesting. Etro is a little hard to find and a few are quite nice (messier de minute, sandalo, shal nur). I happen to like parfums delrai paradisi (jammy rose). the different company is hard to find.

    otherwise there's teh usual suspects from the big guys like l'artisan, dyptique, etc.

    I've been completely unimpressed with the two TDC frags I've tried (RP and SdV). Etro I've already pretty much worked my way through, with Sandalwood being meh and Shaal Nur being pretty decent. Most other L'Artisan's and Diptyique I've tried and Diptyque isn't really that good IMO.

    Oud 27. Felt like it's been too long since wearing it.

    JV 10th Anniversary again today. I get notes of patchouli, vanilla, maybe bits of pine and vetiver. I'm tempted to get it. Not that it's really FBW, but I have a Saks gift card that's been burning a hole in my pocket. Reminds me of Bond Cooper Square, but at like 1/3rd the price.

    L'ap TdB is very nice, and quite unique. A real fragrance chameleon, but in a good way (changes character a lot from top to dry down.)

    Enjoy!
