    30ml for £15 makes it almost twice the price of the Zara version?!?

    Calm down. It's not a competition.

    I like how the bottle says "perfume name here".

    Still liking Armani 'Stronger with You', and Boss 'The Scent'. Different enough to alternate for a change.
    Courage is being scared to death but saddling up anyway.

    I have Boss The Scent Intense. It is for about 10 minutes but then I cannot smell it. Thankfully I only purchased the 200ml version! Only 190 to go.

    It sounds counter intuitive but try spraying less, and away from your nose (back of neck/stomach for example).

    Zara

    Vibrant Leather, very reasonably priced and is a favourite of mine as is Opus 1870 by Penhaligons.

    I can't smell it after a while either, but the missus says it's still there. She prefers it to the Armani, which is the one I prefer!!!

    Ēnose blindnessĒ is a thing. Whilst you canít smell it others still can. This is borne out by acres of consumer data (I work in the fragrance industry so have a reasonable idea of what Iím talking about).

    The development of things like the 3volution air fresheners was intended to overcome this phenomena by cycling between different olfactive directions in the device to overcome the familiarity and thus non-recognition of the fragrance.

    Gaultier le male best of all time for me.

    Tom ford Black Orchid the absolute worst. Absolutely vile, it knocks me sick.

    Olfactory fatigue is the technical name for when the fragrance stops smelling, or ďnose blindĒ thatís why someone with body odour donít know how bad it smells, or smokers donít notice their clothes smell like a dead person.

    Back of neck, behind ear and/or on the back of the right hand work for me, and I notice the fragrance comes and goes

    I splashed on the real thing last year, having tried Fine Platinum which is an AS splash more that an EDT but followed your advice and have just received a bottle of No9. It's very, very close indeed and cost £13.25 on Amazon. There's maybe a slightly more floral scent in No 9 but at £240 less, I'm convinced!

    Thank you for that hint.

    BRUT - why settle for less?

    More seriously, Penhaligons have new scenes quite frequently, and there are also the classics they stock. The quality is excellent. Different price depending on whether it's eau de t, or cologne.
    For a scarcer fragrance try Amouage (they do men's). Their production is impressive and of a very high standard using many naturally distilled oils, extracts etc.

    Probably quite common, but Iím really enjoying Terre díHermŤs EDP at the moment.

    Oh, and Chanel Allure Homme Sport.

    Presumably thatís because we notice change of smells, not sells themselves.

    Old school now. Have been using for many years. Givinchy gentleman and the old style eau sauvague.
    Not the stuff in the black bottle bought for me in error this Christmas.
    Not as fresh as the old one but not bad.

    L'Occitane is the nicest daytime scent I've used and you can use it quite liberally without overpowering.

    For evening out I wear Hermēs Voyage EDT which is supposed to be unisex but I think it's quite manly. The Voyage parfum is very feminine so make sure you order correctly!

    bleu de chanel

    but I don't buy any now because over the years the laws have force these companies to reformulate when certain things were restricted or banned from use.
    they charge the same but they have become lesser and lesser products that fade quicker and are not worth their money anymore IMO.

    I could be wrong however

    Creed Himalaya is my current favourite, along with Channel Bleu.
