My wife got me Invictus by Paco Rabanne. It's okay. I never shop for fragrances myself, but I may sample some of the scents posted here.

 

When I was a kid in the mid '60's, probably 11 or 12, I was gifted with a cologne called Hai Karate. I hated it. In moments of boredom, I would pour Hai Karate on cars from model kits I'd built that I had tired of, and burn them. I did this in the driveway, of course.

Commercials were funny with whomever used the stuff having to fight off hoards of women with his Karrateee.

 

I agree!

any users of Nut Rub out there?

I'd have to go with Ocean Breeze. Except in my case it would be Tsunami Tornado.

I’ve got more than I can remember. The few I wear on a rotating basis:

 

Old Spice - just because. I use old spice aftershave most of the time, so I wear this usually on days when I shave.

 

EastWest Bottlers Bluegrass ( it’s a fantastic fragrance and my wife loves it)

 

D.S. Durga Burning Barber Shop - smells about like you would think it does. Smokey and quite complex. It is quite strong, so not much is needed. The description on the site says “A fire broke out in the Curling Bros. barbershop in Westlake, N.Y. in 1891. All the shaving tonics with their spearmint, lime, vanilla and lavender burned. A charred bottle was found half-full. It smelled like this.“. I believe it, lol. One of my favorite scents

 

Czech & Speake #88 - Smokey incense with a rose base. Another One of my favorites

 

Joop Nightflight - this one got hard to find for a while. Haven’t bought it in a long time and I’m almost out

 

 

My uncle and I were quite close growing up. He was very much into fragrances. He always had a massive collection. When he passed away, I took al of them. I have taken up the slack and carry on the obsession, lol

 

Good to hear that you've taken over your uncles obsession j.

I enjoy them but should note that I only paid full retail for one of the bottles (in total I was able to save almost 40% off Neiman prices). There are a few others I have my eye on but I plan to limit my collection to 18 bottles or so, 24 max.

Is this Creed stuff really hundreds of dollars??

 

Yes, but you can get them for much less online if you know how to spot the fakes.

If you are going to wear cologne, Creed is worth it.

 

At NM Creed Green Irish is $295 & up. The Aqua DI Parma that I wear is $265

 

Right. At NM the 50 mL bottle of Creed GIT is $295 and the 100 mL bottle is $395. I got my 100 mL bottle online for $200. Never go full retail.

yeah, I've never paid full retail for Creed.

 

Also, even my go-to 2.5oz bottle of GIT has lasted me 4+ years.

Some ones to try for those interested in entering the realm:

 

YSL L'homme

Lacoste Essential

If you like anything that smells more 'dessert like' you'd be remiss not to try the A Men colognes

I feel like I’m a teenager when wearing it, but my wife only likes Polo by Ralph Lauren. I’ve tried many others over the years but she only likes that one. It starts a fire in her that can’t be put out ? so it is totally worth it. But when I’m wearing it out, I’ve had people comment with wtte of “oh, Polo, I haven’t smelled that on anyone since middle school “. ?
