One of my favorites. I usually buy decant quantities to save a few bucks.

This one doesn't do it for me though some like it a lot. One of those you do or you don't situations I expect.

The Journey

Postby EL Alamein » Wed May 28, 2014 5:28 pm

Well, I once had a bottle of the Cool Water that a girl gave me to wear on dates with her - we were teens at the time. I really didn't care for it but didn't mind it either at the time as we were both teens. Well, the affair ended and a small bit is left in the bottle and I just can't stand it now, except if I sniff what has been dried on the atomizer after all these years. "Industrial Fuel" is a phrase I've read that describes it perfectly to me.

And although that sniff of the atomizer can evoke a different time, place, and pleasant memories the full on application (which I have smelled on others in public) is nauseating. This is not only true for this fragrance but many others I have been given over the years by women. I attribute this effect to being exposed to true high end scents which I believe have spoiled me to most "modern" fragrances. I wonder how did I ever tolerate such things?

I don't meant to disparage what's available now or even those who enjoy such things just to describe, in brief, my journey. Part of what I have experienced may be attributed to age and/or maturing tastes. Enjoy what you like is what I say. I just think there is better out there.

Chris, What a charming post!...why, you sound like....well, you sound like me ( chuckle ). "Industrial fuel" is a phrase I used in this context years ago, I think on the old MSN forum. We used to get these younger guys who would say that their GF ( or wife, or whatever ) wanted them to wear this or that cologne of this type and I used to remind them that most American women now grew up smelling that sort of stuff, that they'd never had a sniff of more traditional perfumery and therefore were thrown by it. More often than not though, if the gent persisted they reported that their GF wound up liking what they originally always seemed to describe as an "old man's scent". I've been fortunate in that both my ex and my current wife really like the more classic men's colognes. My current wife is considerably younger than me and she told me she loved Chanel Coco when she was in college ( in the '80s ). I said, "don't bother, they've reformulated and ruined it". She didn't really believe me until she sniffed some in a dept. store and said, "my God!...you're right!...why did they DO that?!" Why indeed?

Seems like whenever there is a change in management there is a refocus and the channeling of new energy to existing product lines. It's as if they feel they have to justify their new position by bringing change and innovation to the table.

That or they just cheapen the products to achieve short term profits.

Isn't it one of the fixatives that Creed favour that give rise to that characteristic undertone? I think Michael B. said something to that effect once.

I totally agree that the pernicious but now pervasive business culture that says that if you get a job (sorry: "if you are honoured by concerned stakeholders to be entrusted with the direction of this team, then you are, in a very real and profound way, obliged to use your own particular lens to examine the optics of the situation, while making appropriate consultations in an innovative and timely fashion, and at the end of the day having utmost sensitivity to the needs and values of all those upon whom your decision impacts...,"*) you must change all that went before to simply show that you are doing something.

I hate it, the practitioners of this shallow show who have no skill but merely imitate their colleagues and congratulate each other on doing so, the effects it has on all it touches, and the fact that business culture is now worshipped by the friggin' parasites that have taken >50% of health care spending and directed it to their own empire building rather than the patient care it was meant for when it was paid as taxes.

I haven't ordered this specific fragrance, but I can recommend LuckyScent. I have bought a few products from this vendor, and I have communicated with the owner on more than one occasion via his website. He communicates readily, his pricing is competitive and his service and shipping practices have been exemplary. Here is a link --- http://www.luckyscent.com/search?gsearc ... rish+tweed

Try to get a sample first Clarky. If I had bought this one based on reviews I would've been very disappointed.
