Yikes...second day in a row...I walked into the room and my wife came in close for a sniff and said it smells like Spring (which is the first day of Spring). I've been wanting to wear since I mentioned it in a recent thread by Pippin. Christopher Street. (y)

I just started wearing perfume/cologne again after decades of not. So far Fred Hayman ...with Love seems to be noticed. But I'm not sure it's real compliments...

I've worn Prada Luna Rossa Carbon out of the house about four times. Three times I've gotten compliments on it. Again tonight.
LOL. Over 100 carefully chosen frags and a Sauvage smell alike gets noticed.

Actually in fairness, I had a guy asking me about Antaeus earlier this week. He sincerely wanted to know what it was and where to get it

Doppelgänger Gold Label from Phoenix Artisan Accoutrements. It is beyond fantastic. It is an homage/clone of Creed Royal Mayfair. It smells fresh and super high dollar (like Rolls-Royce’s and Windsor knots).

When I first used Dunhill icon racing EDP, my female colleagues liked the smell. One of them asked me for the perfume's name so she could buy it for her boyfriend.
On the other hand, my wife likes Calvin Klein Truth for Men EDT.

First two days wearing it, I got compliments in the first 3 hours of applying....and it's still cool spring weather 6-10 degrees Celsius.

Scent is Afternoon Swim!

Didn't expect this from this one, thought it was a skin scent.

Creed Royal Oud, but it only lasts 3-4 hours on my skin before fading off into memory. Staying power is not so great on me for the $$, but folks love it when they can smell it.

I don’t think any fragrance that I’ve owned has gotten asked about as often as Tom Ford’s Oud Minerale (gray bottle). Often multiple times in a day whenever I wear it, I will be asked what I’m wearing (in a good way!).
