    I never considered his occupation, I like his ''Pit Boss'' stick deodorant, it's unsurpassed for performance and given my profession and all the manual labor involved I'm sure you can see why that's important!

    Much like OP, I haven't had a great deal of exposure but what I have tried includes the following;
    Calvin Klien Euphoria/Euphoria Intense
    Davidoff Cool Water
    Versace Eau Fraiche
    Cerruti L'Essence De Cerruti
    Dolce & Gabbana The One
    Issey Miyake L'Eau d'Issey Pour Homme Sport
    Yves Saint Laurent L'Homme

    Favourite being the Cerruti. Almost impossible to find now, I've just ordered some from fragrancenet (I know :( ) in the US. Hopefully it a) arrives and b) is actually the real thing.
    The YSL and CK Euphoria Intense were also very good.

    A day rarely goes by without Acqua di Parma featuring at some point. I'll often change twice in a day, on occasion three times. I'm always wearing a scent, regardless of whether I leave the house or not.

    I haven't sampled a great deal of scents but I have and really enjoy;

    Safari ( I started buying this in 1993 and still do so must be good!)
    English Blazer and
    Tsar (Wife's favourite hands down).

    After smelling @todras's Aqua de Sydney I'm pretty keen to get some Aqua de Gio though.

    Aqua di Gio is one of the best scents around IMO

    Blended scotch, no thanks mate. I'm a single malt kinda guy.
  14. I'm yet to try a single malt that I actualy like. maybe you can open my eyes to the world of single malts one day

    but until then the smokey line of blendeds are my go to.

    but in saying that I never turn my nose up to something that someone has crafted and they stand behind. I will always give a product Wether it's a scotch whiskey or bourbon or even a tequila brewed in a bath tub, it's time before I judge

    Johnny green is not a very good single malt. I am sure @Monsta_AU can make a few recommendations
