    sorry, total brain-blank moment. I meant PROJECTION on Jubilation XXV, the longevity is excellent. Anyone have problems with Projection of this bad boy?

    Hmmm...hard to tell. I've never been a good judge on whether or not something projected. I think it's because I don't produce enough body-heat(?)

    I'd be fairly confident that it projects relatively well though...it's one that I continue to catch whiffs of during the day.

    XXV was completely overpowering the 1 time I tried it. I can't imagine ever describing this stuff as "subtle"

    When I wear XXV, I can't smell it on my skin after a few hours. At first I thought that it had very poor longevity, which surprised me. But then I noticed that when I left a room and came back, I could smell the scent in the room. But I still couldn't smell it on my arm.

    Was given a large number of Bond No. 9 Brooklyn samples recently. It's cool by itself, but mixes incredibly well well with Bleu de Chanel. The only issue is that Brooklyn is a touch pricey. Anyone know of a suitable replacement?

    I really like O&C as well, although it's awfully pricey for what it is.

    Today: Giorgio for Men. Big honking Fabio-in-a-bottle.

    Any generic blue juice should suffice.

    Bvlgari Man completely reminded me of Brooklyn.

    Wearing a blind buy, Mandarina Duck Pure Black. It's okay. I get sort of a sweet coffee/leather or maybe tobacco. Not sure which is which. Gets citrusy as it dries down. Has a very designer feel to it. After just a couple hours I think it's fading, and I'm not too optimistic on longevity, but I guess I'll find out later today.

    Yes, just a touch. [​IMG]

    O&C has a great opening, agreed... but the stuff was literally gone in like a half hour.

    Today, Creed VIW. 3 hours and still going strong... so far so good. a little too synthetic though.

    ^^ how would you compare that to Bigarade?

    I'm looking at getting a bottle of Concentree D'Orange but already have Terre D'Hermes and some Bigarade, plus some declaration so I'm not sure if it's redundent.

    Just curious. Anyone here a fan of Creed Orange Spice? I was up in the Midwest recently and found it to be a nice little fragrange on cold blustery days.

    Blue? By cool I mean a generally wearable (it's actually really heavy on the cedar), not fresh if that's what you mean.

    Bvlgari Man completely reminded me of Brooklyn.

    I'll give it a check- thanks!
