Yes, I totally enjoyed the SF trip. SF is dangerous for me! LOL. Thanks for reaching out.!!!
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,
Power Where You Need It
