You're welcome, Ody! I've seen you around, but nice to finally make our friendship "official." Have fun in SF, and LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU BUY!
I just wanted to say you're one of my favorite reviewers on this site, and I enjoy your zen-like approach. We have similar tastes as well - I love fresh citrus and green fragrances, as well as classic aromatic fougeres and chypres. I can't stand most of the overly sweet or heavy orientals and tooty-frooty scents that most people my age enjoy (I'm 18). Keep up the good work!
Knowing your love of green, outdoorsy scents, I wonder if you've tried 1903 by J. Peterman?
Thanks odysseum. I have never smelled Polo Crest, and won't be paying big bucks for it - I will probably be outbid as it is on ebay. I have told my wife I intend to cull my collection, so I probably need to even curtail buying this one.
Thank you for the hearty welcome!..Reading some of the visitor comments i realize that you are the go to guy for green scents and i hope to benefit from your knowledge so that i may makes a wise choice when selecting a new fragrance for myself
Thank you ody, I already have a sample of Eloge du Traitre on the way, good to see I'm on the right track. The fragrance I seek need not be overwhelmingly animalic - perhaps a light musk or ambrette would even be enough. But it should be intensely bitterly green. "Powerful" is probably a good way to put it.
Hey Ody, it was recommended that I contact you about my animalic-green fragrance search. Please have a look at my thread! http://www.basenotes.net/threads/277...Green-Animalic
I have tried a lot of fragrances, and so far Yatagan is the only wearable scent I've encountered. But it's a bit too sweet and edible. Do any fragrances occur to you that have not been mentioned in that thread?
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.
Thank you for sharing your recommendations with me. I've been meaning to sample Cypres-Musc for some time, so thanks for reminding me! Hopefully, I can find samples/decants of C-M, 4 Voleurs and Olibanum. Part of the fun in this hobby is trying to track these darn things down.
All the best,
Like you, I enjoy coniferous/pine scents. Currently my favorite is Fou d'Absinthe. I 've tried or own Epicea, Polo, Pino and a few others. Are there any that you really enjoy that you recommend I try?
