I find myself mostly unimpressed with everything I'm sampling, and unmotivated by the recommendations from people whom seem to enjoy the unimpressive. Pretty sure I'm done wasting time and money on more unimpressive fragrances.

Nothing wrong with enjoying what you know and love. :smiley:

Jubilation 25 and Blue Heaven - both of which grow more enjoyable as they dry down.

Boadecia Nemer (smells like a night at the Monte Carlo casino, Carbon Sapphire (great classy office scent) and Almas (rose and fruity carnal oud done to perfection) all proved to be fantastic.

At the other end of the price scale:
Acqua Di Gio Absolu Instinct (ebony wood perfection, no roughness)
Missoni Wave (better than Chanel Allure Sport - an update to that style)
Trussardi Riflesso Blue Vibe (Balenciaga Pour Homme and Tuscan Leather Intense mixed together)

Nasomatto Fantomas is my latest "wow".

This house is one to sample, the 3 I tried I ended up buying. I need to try Fantomas.

Recent WOW- Andree Putnam Formidable Man. Some say it like Terre de Hermes. I think it is very unique. Sour and sweet vibe that I find very original and appealing.

But is it wow'ing you? I have my sample on the queue to retry as well.

I am very curious about it, it hasnt lured me in deep yet after one test, but I have 6 or 7 samples that I have been messing with. All fall winters, I must say Bois du Portugal is the most complete in style and function, and it definitely wows me. I had never smelled it before, but I know thats not new for all of you here.

LV Meteore. It's a glorious green/orange thing to my nose. Very clean and designery.

It tells you a lot about my tastes that my two faves from LV are Meteore and L'Immensite. Yes, my cologne tastes run to the mainstream in flavor. I like both of these better than the Nouveau Monde I wore yesterday.
