      Can we chalk it up to bad eye sight and a small screen?

      Thanks, I thought I was fancy because I thought I knew the OSX shortcut, but it was the wrong one!

    Last month there was a post (Getup of Harvest and Thanks) that listed a solid cologne as part of the overall ensemble and it got me wondering how it differs from a traditional spray cologne such as this one. I’ve always used spray in the past but am very intrigued by the solid–seems like the scent would last longer–and would love to get some feedback. Thanks.

    I’m no aficionado… but I’ve tried my fair share of cologne and been around the basenotes forums. This is really a great manly scent. Smells good, natural, manly without being too metrosexual or “cologney”. No one will confuse you for an abercrombie model or a cologne guy (unless you bathe in it). 2 sprays is enough to last all day. Definitely something any older guy can wear. Highly recommend this one.

    I’ll try to find a sample of this but I’m a long-time fan of BR’s Black Walnut. Curious to hear what you all say about that one.

    FYI: If you want to try it out but can’t find it in a store (or magazine), they have a small sample bottle of it for $2.50 at

      Closest thing I could find on the site was the .17 oz and gel for $13.75 with coupon. Am I looking in the wrong place?

    I’ve been wearing this off and on for a few years – woodsy and mellow, a nice sandalwood/cedar smell that lasts for a long time without being obnoxious. I reach for Moonshine more often for regular wear but I like this one if I’m heading out after work.

    Wore this to a party last night and ended up making out with a random chick. This stuff is potent o_o.

    I am a big fan of Tom Ford and his fragrances (Extreme, Man, Black Orchid). One for every occasion. I was not as blown away by Hermes as I was by Tom Ford. What do you think?

    came out in 2006. 2014 – 2006 = 8 years old.

    the top note of this is VERY harsh however it quickly dissipates and the dry down is a real earthy / orange smell.

    Its good… but not Aventus good
