strange that as it's quite strong on me and very distinctive, so much the gf started complaining about it. 2nd bottle too but I do tend to put quite a bit on. Much prefer the essenza version, less soapy on the dry and has a more wintery feel to it.

I just picked up a bottle of the Wonderwood and contrary to what some have said it lasts for ages with me - smells beautiful too.

new bottle of the the staple 888 + Le Labo Bergamote 22 was a crimbo prez, very lemony and a bit spicy - one for the summer, prefer their vetiver but mustn't grumble.

On the note of Labo - the Vetiver 46 is (imo) extremely nice:

get that wonderwood.

Mate got this recently, smells like 'changing room / wardrobe' to me Smiling

+1 for the Tom Ford private blend.

Just a couple I've picked up recently, got about 50 bottles now Oops Oops (no weirdo)

Tobacco Vanille (classic)
Bois Marrocain (fave. Smells amazing)
Noir De Noir ***** (bit overpowering / feminine if sprayed more than once imo)
Black Orchid ****

Guerlain L'instant EDP

My secret Santa was kind enough to get me cdg2 shower gel. It really lasts on your body and clothes once you've washed with it. Can anyone recommend any other fragranced shower gels that have that lasting smell? Cheers

I also really like Acqua di Parma colognes.

Dior Homme (Regular or Intense) is really nice too Cool

Don't think this really deserves a new thread, but I have a 100ml bottle of cdg 888, that I've sprayed about 10-15 times that I don't want anymore. It really doesn't suit me. Would do it for £35. If anyone is interested drop me a PM.

I know I wax lyrical about Frederic Malle - but got sent a couple of testers of this one, very light/fresh summer smelly (if not a bit minty/powdery to start off). Will be my next purchase.
