I'm curious what others have to say about this stuff. I had my first exposure to it yesterday and it was less than impressive....

Like Arko, it's one of those classic scents that's been around for a long time and you probably either love it  or hate it.  I like Arko and dislike "The Veg."

IMO it's at least unique and something geared towards the Boomer and earlier generations, I was born in '59, it's a scent I remember as a young boy.  It bought back good memories, but not something I'd wear outside the home or very often, that sad, it wasn't a re-buy and I satisfied my curiosity.

Boy, you're really trying to start up trouble with this one, Tappan. At least for me, I can't imagine a worse scent. I'd rather ride in the car with my old dog in the back seat and with the windows rolled up than ride with someone wearing LilacVeg.  Biggrin

I find that first out of the bottle it smells like a Jeyes Fluid mixed with a urinal cake.  Once on my face, however, it changes dramatically and isn't half bad.  Obviously, the trick is to withstand the initial smell.

I love the veg. It was good enough for John Wayne, and it's good enough for me. (:>)

Ha Ha, so this is the real reason I posted this thread. It's funny. I went to North Carolina for a week to visit my good bud Lance ( Skinny Rogers )
While out strolling around we happen stumble on the Veg. I've never smelled it before and asked Lance about the smell, he handed me the bottle and being a bit stuffed up due to pollen I went to squeeze the bottle to push some scented air out of the bottle but I squeezed TOOOO HARD and drowned my face and shirt..!! We both died laughing.. Then I went to Banana Republic and bought a new shirt..!!!

Well Tappan, you have not told us what you think of the scent.
