Thank you for the great review of my beloved Catalyst.
Thanks for the quick reply! I guess our skin chemistry must be very different then, because Cinnabar was extremely potent on me (1 spray gave ample projection and 16+ hours longevity) and JHL seemed more reserved-- it smelled sort of like Cinnabar without the orange sherbet and hefty amber but more animalic and calm. Guess I'll have to amp up the dosage or just reapply to get the longevity of a feminine with the reserved qualities of a masculine. Funny how that works...
Thanks a ton!
I was just reading your lovely review of JHL and I was curious-- are you reviewing the relaunch in the aramis gentleman's collection or the older version? Because I don't find JHL to be very long-lived in comparison to most other fragrances of its class (Cinnabar, Opium, Coco, etc.) or even at all, it seems to be 6 hours max on me. Thanks!
I've noticed you're an enthusiast of Giorgio by Giorgio Beverly Hills.
Could you please kindly tell me if the re-launched fragrance is still as strong as it was back in the 1990s when I used to wear it? I recall it would leave a gorgeous trail and I got many compliments on it.
Would you say it works the same today? Is it true that the formula was altered?
I'm also considering an A*Men purchase but something tells me Giorgio holds on for much longer. Let alone, I think its formula is more original than that of A*Men.
I'm curious to read your opinion.
Do pardon my strangled English. I work as a translator but, busy as I've been, I don't get many opportunities to actually TALK to people.
Sorry To bother you.
I am again looking for a zesty citrusy fresh summer frag for the 48deg Indian summers.
It should have monster sillage and great Longevity.
I am planning to buy
Solo Loewe Agua
are they fine?
thanks for your answer anyway,i've already launched a thread on the forum and few americans(apperantly they are) gave me some advices among which Aramis havana and JHL and some other brands whicj i've never even heard of like co bigelow and caswell massey.But you are not the first who tells me about those new aramises,so i guess it must be be something awesome...->goes on my list.
Hi.Once again turning for a piece of advice to someone who creates respectable and worthy image of oneself judging just by the number of your reviews here.We ,europeans, have mostly a very particular idea of them yanks especially when it comes to perfumery which according to some opinions was invented in the USA(right after the USA itself was invented,the very next thing thereafter...).Cut to the chase-my pal is leaving for US soon to do some business and me ,being very keen and eager to try some of them american scent waters,i want to let him get few souvenirs, perfumes that are very specific for USA and which man can not get here in europe.Could you give some names which are 1)exclusively american 2) are worthy the buying 3)for men 4) freely avilable and are not of the posh-niche-la-di-daah type (Clive Chrisitian or Bond9 etc...).Your advice will be highly appreciated.
I'm sorry for the last one - wrong window. And thank you so much for the hint
Could You please help me? I'm in trouble looking perfumes for my GF. I know nothing about perfumes but I checked her wardrobe lately and I noticed she likes scents that could be described as florals broken by fruits. She owns Gucci Rush, Escada Magnetism and an untagged bottle shaped like red apple with golden top). I believe she'd rather prefer a bit darker, misterious scents than lighter and ’careless’ ones.
I would be grateful if You could recommend 3-5 scents which I should check.
I sent this question to Foetidus but he recommended You as an appropriate person to ask for an answer.
Thanks in advance.
