Hi again, in your past note you said,
"Herbissimo, it's getting harder to find it, which one would you recommend as being "greener" and masculine."
I know, I found it very hard to find the Herbissimo line. I have Mejorana/Marjoram and Enebro/Juniper. They are amazingly good for budget fragrances. The one that is similar both in terms of quality and price is definitely Pino Silvester. I am sure you'd like that. It is very green and very masculine. And it should easily be available.
Hi there, thanks for the note. I've been away for a while. I'll give some thought to it.
As far as Gucci Nobile goes, I haven't had a chance to compare it to the knock-off. It is hard to sample that knock-off, and with my little stash of GN I am content. I wouldn't purchase the other brand blind. So I can't comment. But I'd hazard a guess that GN is old-school, powerful, has great longevity. I can't imagine that the imitation would have the depth. Just speculating...
Oh Grand Poobah of "green" notes, I come to you with a question and request for comments and suggestions.
Herbissimo, it's getting harder to find it, which one would you recommend as being "greener" and masculine. I get the feeling Te Verde would be more uni.
Also have you had a chance to compare Nobile Gucci and Nobile Royalty? I'm wondering if I should bother putting out more money for Gucci when Nobile Royalty might do easily.
Hey Odysseusm, thanks for returning my message. I may not explained myself well, I do have a bottle with: "H pour hommes" at the top.
In your review of this cologne I thought you meant that DiCarpo was on the bottle.
So now that that is all out of the way I guess I do have what you describe as the one you review under "H Pour Hommes" here on basenotes.
I am now set straight and have an idea of Fougere Royale's history, my eyes just about popped out of my head when I saw this bottle of "H pour hommes" for sale at an estate sale, at the time I was thinking it was the original "Fourgere Royale" by Houbigant!
How I envy you, having an original. Well maybe somewhere down the road I can find myself an original Houbigant masterpiece!
Hi, you sent a note asking about H pour Homme Fougere Royale. You said that your bottle does not have the words "H pour Homme" on it, but that it does have Fougere Royale on it.
My bottle is large, 250 cc. The front and back are rectangular, the sides are triangular, creating a six-sided shape. The bottle top is tan with black edges. The words H pour Homme are on the front, and then further down it says Eau de Cologne 90 degrees, Fougere Royale Houbigant Paris.
Is your bottle the same shape? It is odd that it doesn't say H pour Homme on it.
I'm coming to you because I really need help on a little gem I just found.
I read your review for H Pour Hommes.
In your description you mentioned the subsidiary co. of Houbigant and their release with their name on the bottle.
Well I have come across a bottle of H Pour Hommes but the name of the co. is nowhere on the bottle.
It does say "Eau De Cologne 90" though. followed by Fougere Royale.
What am I looking at here?
Your insight is very much appreciated! Thanks for any input.
