Black Walnut

I have recently finished a bottle of cologne. And with that, I am moving to a new one.

I just finished a bottle of Black Walnut by Banana Republic. This is one of the rare instances in which I get a cologne that I didn't buy. In this case, back in 2008, when someone who used to be a friend was leaving Buffalo for good, he gave me this cologne, because he bought it, but realized that he didn't want it. I didn't mind the smell, but it wasn't my most favorite bottle. It was a 100ml bottle, and now it is gone.

So now I am moving to Chrome Legend by Azzaro. I remember buying this one 3 years ago, in May 2010, in John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York City. I was flying back to Manila after an absence of 3 years, and I was browsing the duty-free section. The Armenian sales person was quite persuasive so I decided to buy this one. I have a 75ml bottle, as the larger bottle was 125ml and therefore cannot be carried as carry-on in aircraft. We'll see how it goes.

  1. Azzaro has some great stuff! I'm also a fan of Hugo Boss, the guy's perfume. A bit strong but I'm addicted to the smell for some reason.

    1. Zhu,

      Oh I used to have a Hugo Boss, long time ago. It was given to my father but my mother forbid my father to wear colognes, so every cologne he receives as a gift goes to me.
