How did you lose it?
The sense of smell is so undervalued.

A week or so after i had quite a big operation and got back home i noticed it had gone.
Op was on my stomach though so not sure of the connection. It came back after i had another big op, then went again after a month.
Was wondering if it could be psychological, or a post operative phenomena. Maybe a reaction to anaesthetic, as id never had it before.
Not noticeably affected my taste.

Had a smell of that Tom Ford Black Orchid today after seeing it mentioned in this thread a few times - really soft…seems like one more for the birds, why is it recommended in here so much for blokes? Laughing out loud

Barber Shop is more Toni & Guy than G F Trumper, put it that way. It's light and fresh and all that interesting. Not at all old school or especially masculine.

D.S. & Durga do a great one called Burning Barbershop, if you like the smell of… barber shops.

Yeah that's what I thought when I smelled it, but seen it recommended in this thread loads, so wasn't sure.
