Never underestimate the depth of a curious mind.
I have two recommendations:Angel (Thierry Mugler)Aqua di GioBoth of those fragrances are like Carrie-magnets =)
I do like Aqua di Gio, but I've never smelled Angel. Might have to make a trip to the store :-)Thanks for the suggestions.
I better clarify: I think you have to ask for "Angel for Men" or they'll assume you want the ladies' version. The women's bottle is shaped like a star and the men's has a star on it. Nordstrom's offers $40 refills once you purchase the original bottle, which is pretty sweet.http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P9866&categoryId=B70I know they have samples, too (you know, like the little travel bottles), but it is always tough to squeeze a sample out of the salespeople unless you're actually buying something...
I'll be sure to pick the right one. It's high time for a trip to Nordstrom and/or Sephora, anyway. :-)Back in the day, I used to be able to get enough fragrance samples at the local Leggett store to keep me smelling good for months. They've really cut back, like you said.
I used to wear cologne, that is until I got pregnant 18 years ago. Since then smells (especially perfume smells) bother me. I get headaches and all stopped up by them. Most everything I buy from detergent to soaps and deodorant has to be unscented anymore.
As I get older, everything I have that isn't cologne is becoming unscented. I guess I want to control the fragrance ;-)
