I wore Tom Ford for Men from when it came out in 2007 for probably 7-8 years exclusively. Could never think of doing that now. Over the years it got weaker though I feel to the point where I can’t even smell it on myself after an hour now. Probably become anosmic to it to be honest.

Although I do only normally wear Creed Virgin Island Water in Summer which has now changed to Simone Andreoli Malibu as that’s the turbo version.

I’ve bought from both places as I’ve had 3. Ignore the difference in bottles, they rebranded this month, Lazzari store has the new bottles. Easily one of the best Summer scents available, highly recommend.

^Was hoping it would be a sibling/cousin to the discontinued 8 88. Not the case eh? : (

Got a sample for Raw Instinct by Crabtree + Evelyn (their rebrand is nice). Quite good, settles down into a woody/smokey smell but the apple blossom lasts quite well to make it a bit more interesting. Decent prices on ebay, might get as a beater winter scent.

Been wearing CDG 2 Man for donkeys, want to switch to another daily CDG fragrance. What's peoples recommendations? From memory the Wonderwood and Amazinggreen are nice?

Wounderoud seems to be the next step.
For a 'darker' frag go for blackpepper

I didn't like it initially and let it go, but I found a small sample in my drawer recently and immediately bought it again.

Great scent for autumn/winter months.

Wounderoud is very good and quite neutral and I like it more than Amazinggreen. Floriental if you want something a bit fruitier / more floral, and Blue Santal if you want something a bit fresher / more overtly masculine.
