Hi Ody, thanks so very much for taking the time to reply to me. I know Michael used to wear it back in the '80's and 90's and since then hasn't really bothered with another fragrance but I must admit I love a man to wear some. So thought as his Birthday is coming up on April 20th, I may be able to buy something really nice (price isn't an issue - he's worth it ;-) so am grateful for your up dated recommendations. I will go into the City next week to a quality store and look at the two you have mentioned. If you feel there's anything else I should look at, let me know. And again I just really appreciate you taking the time. I don't know a lot about men's fragrances as I only buy for myself usually. Kindest Regards, Sharlene
I know it is an old post of yours from back in 2007 where you translated a review of Dimensione Uomo a men's fragrance released back in the 70's. I am actually trying to track down a bottle of this for my boyfriend who used to wear it years ago and always loved it but am not finding it anywhere. Do you know if it is still made and is so, anywhere at all I may be able to purchase it? I was not with him back when he used to wear it, so don't know what it smell's like, so am at loss to chose something else that may be similar?? Any help at all would be so gratefully appreciated. Kind Regards, Sharlene
Hi Ody -
I've been reading your reviews, and would like to ask for advice. I enjoy very much Terre D'hermes. I like the woodsy (cedar/vetiver), but by the time I got to the drydown, all I could smell on my skin was a very faint musk and powder. I do not really like either of those 2 smells. I did enjoy the subtle rose/floral up front and middle, and the light citrus up front as well, I also liked the benzoin in the middle.
Can you think of something that has those elements, but more woodsy, not musky and no powder drydown? I don't mind the linearity... THANKS for your opinions!
