    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.

    I know Orange Spice is popular with a lot of the SOTD regulars. It's a really good scent, and quite a bit unlike most other Creeds. I don't wear it much myself because I actually like Kouros better. Orange Spice is like Kouros plus orange.

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

    Agree with the comment above...Kouros+orange (same perfumer if you're curious).

    I happen to prefer OS to Kouros, but for the price difference, I'd take the latter.

    ^^ 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.
    I was talking with Baron about it a few pages back. Its really hit or miss with me. Some days I think it smells like the sexiest fucking thing ever. Other days, it annoys the shit out of me. I really can't make up my mind. I'll probably end up posting it in the split thread and saving 10ml or some shit.

    I remember Cravate being a fan. I was underwhelmed when I tried it on. So, par for the course when it comes to Creeds. Today - LV Piper Nigrum - This is another one on my "to buy" list. I still need to try the SE LeLabo but this is really the bee's knees.

    Yeah, the LV Piper was quite good iirc.

    Today: Le Labo Oud 27. I keep thinking I need to wear this in the cold months, but it's not so heavy that I can't wear it in the warmer months as well.

    K10 was one of those that smelled fantastic the first time...then gradually became less and less interesting. Still, it's a solid scent and I wouldn't give my bottle away.

    Wearing CDG2 today. Nice balance of aldehydes and chewing-on-tinfoil.

    Getting a little tired of wearing all these heavy scents lately. Need something lighter as I'm tired of the sudden (percieved) 'sillage bloom' that accompanies my mid-day gym visits.

    That happened to me the other day...someone asked if I had just sprayed something on...like I bring a bottle with me to the treadmill.

    It happens with pretty well anything for me, but the heavier scents definitely get more notice. Sometimes I get bloom at the end of the day, when I have to pick up anything or move around a lot.

    Happened with Le Male one time: disappeared around 10 a.m. and came back on the drive home. Still not sure how that happened.

    Acqua di Giò pour Homme today. I am new to scents and am trying to work through the popular/obvious ones. I find Acqua di Giò pleasant, but pretty bland as well. Not offensive but not very interesting either.
