    Got a bottle of Creed Aventus recently, but it's just not for me. Would anybody potentially be interested in this? It's a 120ml bottle, which is over 90% full I estimate.

    Try it a few more times, especially during warm weather. It takes a bit of getting used to.

    Finally some sun and a little warmth today.

    Eau d'hermes!


    Ah, I love that one! Too bad it's still cold and dreary here today.

    Just got my bottle of Hermes Eau d'Orange Vert Concentre yesterday. Sprays on like fruit loops and oranges, fades to pure 100% awesome. I am addicted to Hermes cologne, I've never gotten so many compliments on scents in my life

    I like the sound of this one. Maybe I need to seek out a sample.

    Alexander McQueen Kingdom. Wow! This is really amazing, maybe even an instant top-ten fragrance. The cumin note is very prominent, just as advertised, but it's balanced very nicely by some bright citrus notes. As it dries down, it becomes more like a classic oriental with a sweet vanilla base.

    I don't know if Rambo has tried this, but I know exactly how he'd describe it. And he wouldn't be entirely wrong.

    ^^ yep, I'm quite fond of it myself, after the first ten minutes.

    today: Kouros Fraicheur. Considerably more pleasant than the original.

    You fellas know I'm all about the stinkers, but Kingdom just didn't do it for me. And I had both the EdP and the Body Creme, because I was convinced I SHOULD like it. I realized, though, that I actually don't like cumin. I like civet as a stinker note, but not cumin. consistently, scents that I THOUGHT I'd really like, I haven't, because of a cumin note. Red Aoud (which I liked), nevertheless had something in it that I said, "what?" Santal Blanc. Diptyque L'autre. Montale Grayland. And the list goes on. Given that I'll be moving soon, I'm down to just a few bottles. Weather was warm, though cloudy, so I did Chamade. I'll give you a random "WTF?" scent for you cumin boys... try Kiss' fragrance, "KISS HIM." You'll say, "Huh?" but it's actually quite unique and stinky, in a not-altogether-unpleasant way. Best cumin I've ever tried, though, was probably Montale Grayland. I think it might be OOP, but it was quite unique. Spicy, hot, and yet fresh and citrusy.

    +1 on KISS Him. I'm sometimes embarrassed to admit it, but it's a great cumin scent.

    Today it's unfortunately Creed Royal Water. Yuck! smells like stale lemons blended with rotton herbs. I'm not exactly sure why anyone would purchase this one.

    AHEM.....
    Today I'm trying a sample of TDC Rose Poivre.
    This is going down at #2 on my list of fragrances that make me smell like an unwashed cunt.
    what's #1?
