How Much?!?!?

So today during lunch I amble off to the mall. I go to the department store that was founded here to get some cologne. First problem, they doubled the size of it and I am now making laps trying to find "men's fragrances". I found it and grabbed what I was looking for. 


















So here comes the stylishly dressed "sales associate" to help. I told her I found what I needed and we went to a register. 55 BUCKS? AMERICAN? Really? What the hell is this 1.7 ounces of stuff made out of? Unicorn sweat? I know its hard nowadays to capture one with the whole virgin thing needed to do so but really? 

I better really smell great with this stuff on, velvet ropes should part and champagne fall from the sky when I break this out! 

My sales associate however brightened up and exclaimed: "There is a gift with purchase!" Whoo Hooo! My lucky day as she was pretty enough.... Oh no wait. My bad. Here is the gift:


 














Oh yippee! A crap canvas bag (might be useful for the small stuff at the range), and some other stuff. 

Considering I normally smell like this stuff, perhaps I should stay out of the department stores?

  1. The wife says Hoppe's Number 9 is my cologne... and I say if you can find a gal that will put up with it... keep her... and both will save you a few bucks... ;-)

  4. Just stick with the Hoppe's. And you should take my advice, a complete stranger at the gas station today told me that I've got it goin' on.

  5. You should have told sales associate that the gift would make a good range bag. ;)

  6. Honestly, Keads (and you can ask Odysseus for confirmation on this)...I really prefer the Hoppe's over most other scents.

  7. I love the smell of gun cleaning time...however, this place may save you money - I selected 5 different scents to try and, frankly, the generous sample bottles will last a long while. http://luckyscent.com/

    Really good descriptions can help limit your selection and you don't have to spend the twice (sometimes thrice) what you did only to not like it...

    And if I may be so bold? Creed's Silver Mountain Water is the best scent - period.
