  1. I will definitely be purchasing in future, I tried to get it when it was released but Australia got a very delayed launch

    Have you tried Equipage Geranium? You would probably like it.
  3. My collection is locked up away from light and temperature fluctuations. It is always a challenge keeping a large collection preserved and secure.
  4. Nick, with all the liters you have, how do you store them? Do you keep them in their boxes away from all sources of light? What about temperature fluctuation?
  5. Thanks for the feedback as I used this one in high school and I wanted to check it out, but I heard it was very different from the one I used back in high school. Your delineation of it as helped me tremendously. Great " trio"of purchases there btw. Enjoy, mate. Have a great day! Paul H.
  6. I only have a very faint memory of the original that my brother owned 25 years ago. To me, they seem in the same ballpark. The new one opens with a fantastic citrus accord that is similar to a lot of neroli heavy colognes but this one is a touch less dry than normal. After 20 minutes the citrus accord disappears deep into the background and you are left with a dominant combination of nutmeg, cloves and oak moss which is very 80s, very musculine. To me, the drydown is not so leas ant because I am not a fan of these notes at the best of times. And unfortunately projection during the drydown is average. I only tried this one at home so will have to give it a wearing in public to form my final opinion. If it doesn't please me then, it may find itself for sale on the bay.
  7. Nick, does the Armani Eau Pour Homme compare to the original? Thanks, mate. Paul H.

Daring fragrances

by NickZee on 19th October 2017 at 10:31 PM
I came across this amusing comment in the forums recently:

I sympathise with this comment to an extent. Daring fragrances can alarm the senses because the brain is trying to determine if the smell is safe.

How leathery are you willing to get ?

There are several great leather note categories represented by Bel Ami, Tuscan Leather and Royal English Leather. These three are the most popular of their respective "teams", though not necessarily the best.

Dior Leather Oud, Montale Aoud Cuir d'Arabie and MPG Parfum d'Habit are the great lone rangers in the leather world.

Synthetics vs naturals

by NickZee on 20th April 2017 at 11:27 PM

A natural ingredient is very complex, so some facets will reflect the beautiful door the relevant note is famous for, while other facets will carry bitterness, earthiness and other elements that the perfumer or the user don't want to be there. High quality synthetics address this problem by separating

Do fragrances "Mature" in the bottle? Royal

by NickZee on 3rd January 2017 at 09:39 PM

1). The mixing process creates a lot of chemical reactions that produce volatile, unstable long chain molecules that breakdown with time into simpler molecules that no longer accent the fragrance with chemical resonance

2) The perfumer will need to overload the volatile topnotes to ensure they are present

any point in reading reviews?

The best reviewers, of which we have maybe 2 or 3 on this site, are so good at describing a fragrance that even when they personally dislike a fragrance you can determine that you will like it, or vice versa! I myself am too lazy in my reviews to achieve this but occasionally I try. I review mainly to keep track of my own thoughts,
