    Recommendations on a Tom Ford Cologne

    I have Tuscan Leather and Tobacco Vanille. The TL has a smoky scent, and is one to wear when your stomach is more settled. Tobacco Vanille has a very strong vanilla accord and as such is more versatile in my opinion. Either are unique and do well to fox the noses of the general public who are...

    A Good Fougere or Chypre?

    Best ever Chypre for me: Penhaligon's Raquets

    Are there any good vanilla colognes you can recommend?

    L'Artisan's Havana Vanille has been my favorite in this category.

    Review by '' on item 'Penhaligon's Eau Sans Pareil'

    I had this as a sample years ago as well. It was always a real pleasure, a very subtle and soothing fragrance, and I for one am sorry they discontinued it.

    Frapin 1270; just gets better

    Ever since getting this one, I find the scent just gets more and more pleasant. Very soft, never cloying, this is a really beautiful fragrance, albeit quite unisex, not a rugged manly scent. I did a review of this one (http://badgerandblade.com/vb/showthread.php?t=174237) and I have to say...

    Etro Gomma and Knize Ten

    I picked up some Etro Gomma recently, and while I know some K10 purists will flame me for saying this, it really is very similar to me to Knize Ten to my basic and untrained sniffer. Knize is very hard to find, and Gomma is more common, so its a nice stand in, sort of like getting Aqua de Borsa...

    Penhaligon English Fern - Ultra Strong?

    No, its strong. You have to be careful in the application--I do anyways--or it is overwhelming to others throughout the day.

    I went to smell Penhaligon's for the first time today

    I'm a fairly "heavy consumer" of Pens. and I too love the Opus. It has a white cedar scent that is evocative for me of waking during a heavy snowfall in the woods, the scent of white cedar about and the promise of a fireplace to come. A result of my own bucolic pursuits here in Canada's...

    Tom Ford Tuscan Leather

    I finally obtained a bottle of Tom Ford Tuscan Leather. Price: TF is expensive stuff, no doubt. The score is reflected on the price. I can't say I'd buy a whole range of TF scents owing to the high price, but I'm not moaning over the money I did spend. Quality: There is nothing that...

    Anyone else enjoy a Big Brush?

    X 2. I have a BK 12 and PETA still sends me hate mail for the lives of the badgers required for that one.......

    Borsari Parma - acqua classica

    I find it so similar to AdP products in terms of feel, scent and quality, that its madness to pay the AdP price for AdP colognes.

    Simpson CH1 vs CH2

    Personally, I would go with the 2, since I prefer a larger brush. It comes down to comfort and preference.

    Time to musk up.

    There's Brut and Clubman at any rate.
