Sometimes, things are totally what they seem.

My husband, V and I went to the local outlets today. 

While there, V bought some cologne — Bvlgarie Soir.

While shopping, however, we discovered how incredibly, almost absurdly *direct* the marketing seems to be for men’s cologne. 

Case in point, we sampled a cologne called Power, and a cologne called Victory. 

And we found out that it seems that things are what you might think:

Power comes on strong, but fades after a time; meanwhile Victory remains steady and vaguely fruity smelling even hours later. (Yes, Victory is sweet. ;))
