    While at Bloomies to pick up some Marc Jacobs, I also tried a lot of other stuff they had. Their hired-gun was older, but friendly and fun. Plus, she kept giving me free stuff.
    Anyway, I ended up also purchasing "Friends" by Moschino. It reminded me of a great beach restaurant in the Virgin Islands that was wiped out by a huricane a few year back. For The Birds, it was called, and I loved the place. Romantic and tasty.
    I don't know if the Friends cologne will treat me as well, but I'm looking forward to trying it out. Also, I figure its got great anti-LJBF karma. Maybe I'll even work it into a set or objection resolution.
    What experience have people had with Friends?

    Friends are made by the same group that bought the distribution rights to the Versace name.
    This supposed to be a light/summery/citrus scent. I have heard everything from praise to hatred for 'Friends Men". Based on your reccomendation; I'll try it out if I see it.
    I don't normally go in for the citrus thing, and when I do; I'm using Little Italy. My tastes are more woodsy/spicy/gourmand. I also like odd floral scents.
    I'm really into my newest scent. The black plum topnote is fantastic, but the scent doesn't project much or last very long. Shortly after application it settles very close to the skin.
    I've worn in 3 days in a row now (a long time for me).
    If you like citrus scents and there is a Saks nearby - try Little Italy.

    My staples are
    Cool Water Deep-it smells better than normal cool water, and has just enough of a twist to not smell like the cool water gang
    Curve-yeah....I don't care much for it myself, but it's a mean lady killer for some reason
    Van Cleef by Van Cleef & Arpels- This is my favorite. I'd suggest it when your dressed up a few notches. Smells like you reek of money. It's rather hard to explain. Not for the "kids".
    All of the above have done me well to say the least.
    I agree with gameboys reviews overall. Very well done. For what it's worth his opinion is that of the general public noses (that's what counts).
    It may have been said a few times, but http://www.basenotes.net/ is a superb site.

    Deep and regular CW are very simular. It's rather hard to describe....but....to me it smells a bit more natural, as if they refined it some to get out those somewhat synthetic tones. One thing for sure it has better staying power also. It's not a very original scent by any means, but it's sure fire whenever I spray some on a lady will say something like "you smell sooooo good". You gotta love the tone of voice they use too. This may be my paranoia, but alot of guys wear CW, and I think few wear Deep. Thus if a lady went out with a CW wearer, she won't flash back to some dillhole in her past as easily.
    I almost forgot Vetiver by Guerlain. This brew is as old as the hills. To me this SCREAMS with no apologies your alpha male. I would assume this is one of those scents that wouldn't fit everyone though. I'd say if your a good dresser, and a little ruff around the edges, Ala Johnny Depp, this will fit you perfectly. Truly a masterpeice. Imagine Cedar, with a twist of tobacoo, and a very sleight hint of "fruit" ontop. One sexy beast my friends.
    And yes...I don't think many men care all that much for Curve. Don't get me wrong it smells nice, but it's a little loose in the loafers if you will. None the less, there really is something in that brew women just crave like chocolate. In my travels mainly the 21-26ish ladies. If you've never tried it all, put some on and watch how much closer women get when your waiting in line at the grocery store etc. It's pretty strange in all honesty.

    Guerlain Vetiver is great. EXTREMELY versatile and classy.

    I was getting abunch of girls saying that i smelled good, depending on the girl i'd joke that I just farted (it's an easy ice breaker and pretty funny). Anyways, after some time i realized that it wasn't anything i was wearing, it was actually my aftershave?!
    This is the only thing i can think of, but girls love that smell that makes the guy, the guy. I know it's extremely basic, but Gillete aftershave, the green stuff. I've gone as far as getting my girl- friends to smell different stuff including the aftershave. It's just a great guy smell.

    Game want's me to give reviews of the colognes like I promised... well, alright then. I spent some time with these for about a week and a half. My opinions are my own and I recommend trying them all and developing your own opinions. The colognes I've stolen from an "insider" friend are: Lacoste Essential, Dolce and Gabbana and Stetson Country, we'll get to the samplers I ordered after the review of these. First I will start with Stetson Country, by Coty.
    Stetson Country d (Thumb's Up)
    The first thing I noticed was how much this scent reminded me of Kenctucky in the Spring. It's sweet, but inexplicably so, it's not like a sugary sweet, it's like waking up at 5 A.M., walking into a mist and inhaling deeply through your lungs, so deeply that you feel it in your throat, and it is sweet, oh is it sweet. The smell mimics it's name sake, "country," so well, in my conviction, I can feel the leather, I call up images of misted and flored hills. The scent of rushed blue grass, the hint of floral greens, a minute citrus end note. It makes me feel like a cowboy, at peace with the world, so comfortable in my body and identity that opinions are ireelevant, yet always having the allusion that at any moment I can hap into a remorseless killer, a man with rugged strength and deadly aim, and afterwards, be gentle with a woman. It's wonderfully reminiscenet of one of the best times in my life, carried on that fact alone, I find it deserves a 4/5 on the VC scale.
    Dolce and Gabbana (pour Homme) q (Thumb's Down)
    Apparently this scent is popular. I've never been more disgusted in my life than walking into a Hollister in Newport and finding my lungs coated, literally coated with this. I can assure you, it does not taste good. Taste Tests aside, this is quite possibly the most perfect blend of floral and musky. The depth is virtually non-existant, each level does differ from each other, but the notes themselves are all three rather straight forward, possibly the greatest scent is between 30-80 minutes of wear when both the top and mid note's are blending. It's like Cuba, or perhaps that was it reacting with the all of the Marlboro men from the bar I had just left. In any case, It's a great scent blending woods with citruses as well as pleasant odorants in the vein of spices, peppers and musks. If would get a 3, if it wasn't for it's over population, this jolts it to a below average 2/5 on the VC scale, however as reciprocation, I WILL recommend it... but it still get's the thumbs down.
    Lacoste Essential d (Thumb's Up)
    The only words I can use to describe this scent are "Clean, Fresh, Persistent." It's an amazingly crisp and refreshing scent, it's a modern classic in my head and evokes images of Fred Astaire, and James Dean. It's got that cool guy masculinity about it. With a somewhat green and citrusy top note, a rainy, yet peppery mid and the ever present base woods, it's like the older brother of Patchouli and Sandalwood, all grown up and out of the military. It's clean cut, Extraordinaly lasty (about 15 hours, approximately, on my skin) and it's very fluid, the transitions are some of the best I've ever whiffed, it begins crisply, lowers with a romantic heart and finished with a sturdiness all of which segway perfectly. I don't know what the hell they put in it, but I love it. 4/5 on the VC scale. I'm going to add this one to my roster, I don't have any clean scent's like this, I should thank my friend for having a sample bottle, i'd never heard of this cologne before.
    Now as for demo's I ordered through my friend, I've owned a pair of Burberry sunglasses for several years now and I love them with a passion, so I decided to try out the original Burberry for Men. Also, I recieved a promo in the mail for a scent by the Boxing company, Everlast. The scent is "Everlast Original 1910," I wasn't aware there was an 'un-original everlast' of any year. Any whom, here's my take starting with Everlast.
    Everlast Original 1910 d (Thumb's Up)
    I was expecting a company unrelated to colognes to fail at least moderately with a forray into the aromatic world, however, employing top-notch talent appears to have paid off. The scent is oriential, to my tastes, but is very thickly seductive BUT WAIT! It may be one of the more masculine orientals you ever try. The leather and Musk are plain to my nose, but my pallate also detects sweet citrus, lemons, grapefruits, mandarin and also nutty and woody tones like cypress, nutmeg, cinnamon as well as other masculine odorants like, patchouli and ash. Also, arousingly(?), it feels to me as if someone with much greater levels of testeserone has not only pissed into, but also sweat into the bottle, if that puts you off... don't let it, my mind works in mysterious ways, when you smell it you'll know what I mean, that isn't a correct analogy, but you'll get it. The scent surpasses my expectations and I can't wait until it comes to a store near me. 3/5
    Burberry q (Thumb's Down)
    Not a big fan of this one. First off,the bottle was bland, second off, the cap was broken. Those complaints have nothing to do with aroma, so pardon my temporary deviatation, here is what I thought of the actual scent. Froo. Tee. It doesn't last very long, it has a fake feel to it, it has a terrible amalgam of scents and it's lack of personality is striking, in actuality I can only detect four scents, Mint, Musk, Apple and Vanilla. There are some hint's at sandal wood, as well as a cornicopia of fruits but none-of which I can easilt distinguish based on the blending during release. It's almost like flat honey-root beer, with a musk cloud, in an orchard. 1.5/5
    ...They make great sunglasses though.
    I want y'all to keepin mind that these are my reactions and opinions based on these colognes on my skin, it WILL differ in aroma on your skin and you have different olfactory pleasurables, preferred scents, so I must insist that if you want to try a cologne out, then do so, In fact i URGE you to do so, what I like isn't what you do, got that? Good, now get out there!
    ...and, hey! Good Luck.

    Vincent, Which Burburry did you try?
    There are several in the line. Myself I am VERY partial to the burberry brit for men. It's got a very rich musk contrasted by subtle topnote taht sets the whole thing off. I've not tried the others in the line but I give brit thumbs up all the way
