    Just looking at the notes for VIFASS (the name, hello!) makes my stomach churn. Who on earth came up with the idea to mix all that together? Ugh.

    It doesn't sound appealing to me either, but I think those notes are pretty similar to the original Fresh Attitude (don't you love it when they do a flanker of a flanker?) so presumably if you liked that, you'd probably like this?

    I don't see myself liking this ~ I hated both the original and the flanker. But love the term flanker of a flanker, we can shorten it to FOF from now on, no? Seeing as there've been so many of those lately :-)

    Looking forward to a sniff of the Calyx flanker. It seems like it would be similar to the original? I've probably outgrown it by now, but I'm still curious. Gosh, I used to want to bathe in Calyx – couldn't get enough of it back in the day! ;-)

    FOF works for me!

    I love Calyx! Guessing this will be a bit lighter maybe? Just hope it isn't way more fruity & sweet than the original.

    Exactly – I hope they don't jump on that bandwagon!

    I second that thought – the original Calyx is lovely. Will definitely try this flanker.

    The Very Irresistable for men sounds really interesting. I may have to give this a smell when it shows up at the counters.

    Then let us know how it is — it's not tempting me to buy unsniffed, that's for sure.

    I just can't imagine how this will smell so am intrigued. It may pong but I just have to know for sure!
