I rolled out the Platinum again this morning. Yep, it is just as good!
I used the Platinum this morning... excellent in all respects. The scent is outstanding.
Your description of fresh pineapple and with the dry down of cedar sold me on this. Reminds me of Creeds Aventus. Are you familiar with Aventus? Are they similar?
Jesse-It was based on Creed Aventus. Good nose...........
I have not tried Creed Aventus, but now I'm curious about it. If you get the Platinum, please let me know what you think!
Sure thing Thanks Paul. Ordered it this morning thanks to your enabling.
So I looked into Aventus... yikes! Too rich for my blood! I'll stick with Platinum
I just sampled Fine Italian Citrus this morning. Definitely a keeper and going on my wish list. SWMBO likes it too.
I have the Snake Bite because I love the menthol blast on these warm and humid mornings in South Louisiana. I just bought the American Blend but haven't used it yet. I haven't tried the others. Perhaps you can give us a critique on them since you've ordered the samples.
What I like about the Snake Bite is that I don't seem to have a "film" on my face when I use it. It's just alcohol, fragrance, and menthol. I'm much more comfortable with it.
Snake bite is next on my list.
I used XXX the other day and it was amazing. My girlfriend says I smell like an old man when I wear it, but I don't care.
American Blend is also really good.
See post #19 for my brief thoughts on each scent.
Over time I have purchased the entire line. They are all very nice. My fav is the American blend. #1 in my rotation.
I just received the Fine sampler yesterday. All seven varieties for $20. My biggest problem is I go into vapor lock deciding which to use.
Today I used their Snake Bite for menthol Monday. Wow
I have snake bite, and Platinum coming today.
Love the Vetever and American blend!
Today I used the orange noir. Very nice. Started with a moderate alcohol warmth and is finishing with a pleasing scent. Winner
I've purchased all except Platinum (on it's way... ordered 2 by mistake though) and Snakebite (maybe next time). I like the Clean Vetiver a bit better than the Fresh vetiver, but all others (American blend, Lavandar, L'orange Noir, Italian Citrus) are also winners !! Actually, I just ordered a backup bottle of Italian Citrus and Clean vetiver. I can't help myself
BTW.... many women have provided compliments. I would recommend any of these scents !
... oh... one more thing;
To me the Amer Blend starts off a bit too grassy (almost the scent of 'celery' to my nose) but it dries down to a very pleasing aroma. I like it.
The Platinum is something very special. It's in my top 3. Right behind Speick. Snake bite, great label! Just can't get the hang of it. And I like cold..
