  2. Are these 80s masterpieces to be found in a modern scent?

    There are a plethora of 80s fragrances, long discontinued, that I wold love to find again. My hope is that the basenotes alumni will know modern fragrances that may closely resemble some of these cherished scents of my youth. If you have any experience with modern smell-alikes, I would be forever indebted to you.

I begin to wonder whether florals fundamentally don't play well with masculine skin - or at least, not as well as woods, citrus and so on do.

  5. HDP 1740 Batch info

    Greetings
    I'm new to Basenotes and would be quite grateful with some help with a Frag I'm interested in.
    It's Histoires De Parfum's 1740:

    1st - can anyone confirm that this was reformulated?
    2nd if anyone knows the answer to the first question (2012??) where do these batch numbers fall?

    I usually use Checkfresh.com but either these aren't the correct BN's or the site doesn't support this house.
