Long time viewer of the forum, and old-school fragrance fanatic - but finally signed up formally today, and wanted to say hello...
You have all been a veritable font of knowledge over the past couple of years that I have been cruising this site; your wisdom and opinions are much appreciated!
I am focusing on signature fragrances now; after much trial and error throughout the 80's & 90's.
thebeck has been a great help to me in getting to know the Puredistance line, and I have just ordered my first bottle of "M", and look forward to the winter release of "Black". I think that between these two (both in scent and cost) will keep me happy for the time to come...
Other than these - my most recent purchases have been Houbigant's Fougere Royale (2010), and Heeley's Sel Marin and Cuir Plein Fleur. Previous to those, Narciso Rodriguez For Him in its various incarnations, and my old stand-by since the late 80's - VC&A Pour Homme.
My faves from the past are:
- Jean Patou Pour Homme
- Guerlain Mouchoir de Monsieur
- Knize 10
- Knize Two
- Balenciaga Pour Homme
- Escada Pour Homme
- Boucheron Pour Homme
- S.T. Dupont Signature
- Hermes Bel Ami
- Santos de Cartier
- Grey Flannel
- Zino Davidoff
- Oscar de la Renta Pour Lui
- VC&A Pour Homme
- VC&A Tsar
- Ralph Lauren Polo Green
Looking forward to getting to know you all here -
special thanks in advance to:
thebeck, Darvant, shamu1, Jack Hunter, alfarom, foetidus, drseid, Diamondflame, hednic, marais, bokaba, and Buzzlepuff - (amongst others)
You gents have been quite helpful in these last years of searching the site - as your reviews, observations, and helpful attitude in general are always on point, and say a great deal about your character.
Cheers & Best Regards,
