After reading some suggestions in another thread for a nice men's scent I settled on 1 Million by Paco Rabanne.
    Wrapping presents just now I noticed I'd bought Millionaire by Lomani instead. Stupid me, rushing today, didn't notice, didn't even think when paying why it was so cheap.
I don't know wether it's worth battling the shops again tomorrow to swap it, or just wrapping it and giving it anyway.
I liked the smell of 1 Million, haven't smelt the other. Seeing as it's for DH I will be smelling it a lot (I guess, depending if he likes it and wears it).
I know it's trivial, he may not even like either one, just torn on what to do.
Has anyone compared the two, or has smelt the Lomani?

I wear Paco Rabanne Lady Million and its beautiful. I'd be braving the shops to change it.

I did the same kind of thing today! As I was walking past the perfume shop I saw Cool Water by Davidoff on sale and decided to add it to DH's Christmas present. Brought it home,only to discover I bought the womens fragrance of it.  I think I will attempt to exchange it tomorrow for the mens version (Which probably isn't on sale)

I'd brave the shops.

Not that I have any choice, I'll be working tomorrow (retail) so I'll be there anyway.

TBH you dodged a bullet. 1million by Paco raeben is disgusting don't return what you picked up as what you indented is really quiet feral. Don't brave the shops just give the scent if it's nice.

I haven't smelt the mistake buy yet.
Here's hoping it's half decent as I don't fancy a trip back on Xmas eve. I managed to get everything I need today.
The only place I plan to visit tomorrow is the bottle shop for last minute, much needed supplies cool.gif .

Thanks to you all and Merry Xmas to you and yours.
