anyones opinionn on the CDG/HM smelly? i find the top notes a bit gross (like carpet flavour?) but then the bass is classic comme, reminds me a little of issey miyake pour homme bleu.

A good smelly day today , picked up a bottle of Kenzo Air at the Maxx for £4.99

Received a nice decant of Guerlain Spirituese Double Vanille , hugely expensive for a 5ml decant but its a Paris exclusive
and massively expensive . Also received a sample of Montale Attar which is just Jawdropping! nice , one of the best frags I ever smelt and want a bottle right now Laughing out loud

Anywhere you can pick up CDG 2 for around 20 notes? Gran wants to buy me some scent for christmas to go with the money she gives me and dont want to end up with Old Spice Laughing out loud

1. Clinique Happy
2. Issey Miyake L'Eau D'Issey Pour Homme
3. Aqua Di Gio

Never tried anything else yet, CDG2's probably next.

I get just as many bad comments as good. It does smell like talcum powder. Never had a bad comment with 8 88 but my bottle just ran out and I'm bored of it now. Gonna try some of the suggestions in here

Cheers MoB just copped that stuff, Grans been going on at me to buy some for Xmas otherwise I'd probably end up with old spice Laughing out loud and couldnt find any CDG for cheap enough. Was about to pick up some Gucci Pour Hommme II and take a risk on it. But found a bottle of that Kiehls for a good price Cool
