I've become a bit of a MB fanboy in the past couple months after snagging some Fresh Bushukan Citrus Splash at Marshalls. Well today I saw that they had Cool Buchu marked down to $20, so I grabbed a bottle without ever having smelled it. I sprayed it on a piece of paper when I got back to the office, and have been sniffing it periodically this afternoon (is that weird?). Anyway, I loved it in the beginning. Had a nice fresh mint scent to it. Later on, I started noticing that it smelled very similar to a scent that I remembered from my teenage years. I couldn't think of it at first, then it hit me... CK One. Anyone else have this or tried it and noticed that? I'm hoping I'm off base, because I don't want to have to take it back but I really don't want people thinking I'm wearing CK One. Haha.
By the way, here are some other frags I've picked up at Marshalls/TJ Maxx lately...
Zirh Ikon - big fan, and the wife approves. I think the frankincense is what I pick up and like so much.
Gray Flannel - didn't like it at all. Returned it.
Kanon Norwegian Wood - like it quite a bit, and another one that the wife likes (she usually thinks everything just smells like soap).
Halston Z-14 - I like it. Seems more "grown up" than what I usually pick out. Will probably not wear it until fall rolls around.
I usually don't wear cologne at all. Maybe once/month. I started wet shaving in January, which led to an obsession with aftershaves, which has now turned into frags. Anyway, here's what is still in my cupboard that I've accumulated over the years...
Abercrombie Woods - my wife got it for me as a gift a year or two ago, because she loves it.
Kenneth Cole Reaction - have had it for 7+ years. The girlfriend I had at the time used to go crazy for it. Haven't used it in years.
Ferragamo Subtil pour Homme - got it because there were times when I wanted something more... well... subtle. Another I haven't used in years.
