Gantier's 'Grain de Plaisir' and 'Ambre Precieux' would be on it as would CDG's 'White'. Practically anything by Mark Buxton. I'm more interested in discovering new fragrances than making lists though. Sorry.
Hello again -- not a big fan of Egoiste, I find it a bit crude, but it's miles better than the 'Platinum' version. Rive Gauche is lovely and usually purchase once every two years.
I also want you to pls write your 10-15 most favorite male Fragrances which u consider as classics whether they r modern or old.
hey hope you are doing well.. I would like have your words on Chanel Egoiste and YSL Rive Gauche ..pls. dont be too precised pls.
For your understanding i can say the Eau de toilette is 10% base and 90% alcohol , this 10% base is imported here as concentrated perfumes, Normally Baldessarini lasts to 4 to 6 hours but if u wear the concentrated baldessarini which i do most often, it lasts daysssssssss rather than hours.
They are available in our local market costing 200 to 500 rupees for 10 to 12ml. These are sold as the alternative to perfumes with their names. if i can have your email address i will send you the pics and names of these. haven't you tried Arabian Ittar like Sultan , Al-Khaleeg, Fawake etc..? these are same in look but fragrance is changed.
I am talking about the concentrated perfume (the Eau De Perfume has only 20% prefume but concentrated is 100%) being created by very famous companies where top noses are employed and u can see the names of those companies followed by a perfumer's name in the introduction of various perfumes here in Basenotes. i am not mentioning the name deliberatly.
But when ever i wear this (we call it concentrated perfume) people recognize it as the relevant cologne , for instance if i wear concentrated Armani Code , one of my friend who uses original Alcohol based cologne of Black Code by Armani , immediately smiles and says u wearing code na ??....so as others.
This is a totally different industry originated from France , companies create the base.. and exports it as for industrial usage.
I tried Havana Reserva today ,,, it did not inspired me.
I have got some thing to ask .... if we have only base (essential oil , concentrated perfume) will it smell like the alcoholic version(after getting dried/ set)?
What about Aramis Havana ??? i got the sample(concentrated).
yeah ..Your emotions could easily be seen in your reiviews. "aweful diamonds, offensive to physical(Lacoste PH) etc".
I see reviews of some writers like articles 2 paragraphs on topnotes only, who got as much time to read till the end.
