Guerlain Vetiver, Givenchy Gentleman or Rive Gauche pour Homme.
Can't settle with one.
Gentleman is their best.
Rive Gauche pour Homme
L'Instant de Guerlain pour Homme edt.
You're smelling the honey and civet combo. I personally enjoy it.
Caron Pour un Homme and Yatagan
Van Cleef & Arpels Pour Homme & Tsar
Zino by Davidoff
This month has been all about the old school classics...
I personally don't get the Le male association but can certainly see how RG might give off a minty vanilla vibe through the combination of anise, lavender, rosemary and coumarin. Come to think of it,...
Rive Gauche pour homme is the mature and suited-up Ck Be that you're looking for. Give it a try.
The Dreamer is my choice for a rainy day. Smells like a warm, lit cigarette and fresh lavender which gives It this dry smoke and clean linen vibe which is an absolute treat during such weather.
Another great one to try would be Havana by Aramis. It has a huge cigar tobacco note, earthy, smokey with a splash of classic wet shaver's bay rum. Again, no traces of sweetness. Really masculine and...
You must try vermeil for men by jean louis vermeil. Its like quorom with the tobacco notes excessively amplified. And there is no perceptible sweetness.
Grey Flannel by Geofferey Beene
Helmut Lang Edc
A huge bottle of vintage Canoe by Dana
Vintage English Fern & Douro
Vintage Azzaro Pour Homme
Vintage Paco Rabanne Pour Homme
Vintage Eau Sauvage
DH & DHI, Prada amber ph & Prada Infusion D'homme, Gucci p2 & Armani diamonds.
Dior Homme Intense is co-dominated by a dark syrupy vanilla note along with the cocoa powder. The vanilla in this fragrance has a dark brown texture, not black.
Gucci Pour Homme II
You're saying it like this, if they had come up with something completely new in design and name, it wouldn't have caused the reformulation of the original Eau pour Homme, which doesn't make sense to...
I don't get why people pass judgments on new or yet to be released fragrances based on their bottle design & name and are mostly pessimistic about them in general. The only thing I'm going to judge a...
Eau de cologne.
On a more serious note though The One is quite an exceptional frag based on scent alone, there is nothing quite like it. Such a shame about the longevity, why are d&g playing dumb...
Why are you looking for an alternative to the original stuff, it is still available and hasn't been discontinued, if I remember correctly.
Notes sound quite interesting to be honest. Mojito opening with a cocoa base would render something of a summer gourmand, looking forward to reading the reviews and potential sampling.
Diamonds for men
Lol. Fun thread.
Dior Homme intense - Dark Chocolate pudding.
Joop! Homme - Cinnamon spiced cherry candies.
Azzaro Chrome sport - Frozen ginger ale.
Finally pulled the trigged on a 3.4oz of Acteur for 25$. Good deal ?
Hey franeri, is your bottle of acteur the vintage or reformulated ?
What's that ? You're six inches tall ? then you must be setting world records too.
I enjoy wearing Dior Homme in the summer heat, it's got this coolness to it along with the light gourmand notes. I've not tried MiP yet but from what I've been hearing it's quite similar to DH and so...
Signature & formal - Dior homme
Work - Infusion d'homme
Night out - Dior homme Intense, Dreamer
Date - Prada amber ph
Beach - Davidoff cool water
At home, lounging around - Gucci PH 2
That is for you to find out! IMO Dreamer is not gourmand but it is quite powdery, sweet and very different from the diors.
Do they really smell similar? In what ways? DHI's star player is the rich cocoa note backed by iris and vanilla whereas MIP has no cocoa, nor the infamous iris note.....so how do these two warrant a...
Yes in the opening it does smell like cough syrup which I happen to like, also has a nice jasmine note in the middle, the problem is with the dry down where I get this cinnamon dusted wet rice smell...
Dreamer is a great fragrance. It's very powdery yet clean and refreshing which makes it a very versatile all weather fragrance. The juice is very potent and hence gives excellent longevity and strong...
Are there any other fragrances from this house which are worth trying ?
Superb review, you've got an amazing nose!
Very entertaining! wish he did reviews more often, has been very inactive these days.....
At least they could've though of a better name, sport athlete? They stupid ?
How does the current formulation Cool water smell ?
I remember smelling Cool water on my uncle some 5 years ago and I was absolutely stunned, it was so fresh, minty, herbal, salty and instantly...
All fragrances are overrated, they don't project on my intimidating 3'2.75" 347 pounds frame. I only seem to attract the dogs with my expensive niche perfume and they don't even compliment...
I loove the Kenzo bottles & box designs!
Chrome is way too metallic and harsh. Chrome sport is much much better, it's a great green gingery aquatic scent with above average longevity and moderate sillage.
Well , based on what many here describe the development of their silver collars compared to reformulated bottles I would say my black/black 2010 bottle is vintage and apparently these were...
Anything pre may 2011 is vintage IMO.
Tuscany by Aramis
Citrus & leather with a hint of spiciness.
Poor naming but note pyramid looks interesting enough.
Get this bottle. Same juice.
LOL! good one :]
Yes , it does smell a lot like make-up/traditional red lipstick. But I think the ladies will quite enjoy it, that followed up by the gorgeous chocolate, leather notes is sure to make them ecstatic.
(just for a bit of fun)
How do you know DHI is not for you ?
You ask too many silly, unimportant , time-wasting questions.....
Not a safe blind buy. Buy some samples of it from the perfumed court or a basenoter.
If you don't mind smelling like lipstick or make-up for the first hour or so of the development then I'd say DH is a pretty safe blind buy. Some absolutely hate the lipstick/make-up notes some...
That bottle looks awesome.
Don't go nuts over getting "vintage" DHI especially for 100$+, just get the latest. The difference between them is negligible.
I don't have a signature scent but I do have a signature rotation of fragrances.
I'd go with Nautica Voyage for daytime use and JB Witness for the evening. As for transporting the fragrances just wrap your bottles up with many layers of bubble wrap and seal them with some plastic...
Dior homme , one spray to the base of my forearm lasted 2 days! surviving 3 showers during that period. Insane. Usually a full wearing lasts about 20+ hours.
Prada amber man & Infusion D'homme, on...
You've just described Gucci PH II without of course that gorgeous black tea note. So after reading some reviews and impressions I'm almost certain this shares a lot of similarities with the Gucci and...
Well it depends on what you like more about DH , iris or cocoa.
It's his personal opinion.
Prada Infusion d'homme
He suggested Eau de Grey Flannel by Geoffrey Beene which is a flanker to the original Grey flannel which you purchased.
Hey Checker , this great post by ace11 should help you out......
Agree. My bottle is a nov 2010 black stem which is the 1st reformulation and imo the best, it has the best of both DH & DHI. It starts of with that blast of powdery , potent yet beautiful iris and...
I'd go with Dior Homme for the day & Dior Homme Intense for the evening.
Thanks a lot for this highly informative post, Renato. Much appreciated :thumbup:
hmmmm unfortunate that you didn't like it , I'm yet to sample it, hope it works out well with me.
Most people are still able to detect the cocoa in the reformulated DHI, maybe the cocoa doesn't come out on your skin. You may want to acquire a sample of vintage DHI from a basenoter or the...
+1 Dior homme intense. Syrupy dark chocolate mixed with sugary vanilla powder. Sexy stuff.
Good to hear ,man. It's top 3 in my wishlist among others. Oh and thanks for the review! It was interesting also brought me some lols :D
How can this fragrance be inspired by Surfing and not contain any "Ocean air/mist" or a salty note and is instead dominated by tonka beans ? makes no sense. I can see salty notes working really well...
Yes , it has been reformulated for the better , at least in my opinion.
Here is the note breakdown of the new Dior Homme Sport ;
"Immediate grip that provides the fruity freshness of the...
Here is the official olfactory note description from the "Dior homme paris" website.
"Immediate grip that provides the fruity...
They're two totally different scents. If you want one for nights between the two then DHI wins by default. Kenzo Power is more of a day time fragrance and is way too subtle for evening use.
Well if this really has that signature Iris note then this reformulation is amazing news to me. The original DHS really felt out of place in the DH line. The Iris/ginger combo sounds delightful....
Oh and I forgot to add , lucasai , IMO your original choice of the two prada fragrances are easily the best you can make in the category of classy - clean , soapy , powdery designer scents. They're...
Not sure if serious...... -_-
Try The Dreamer by Versace . A very clean , powdery scent with a touch of ashy yet "airy" tobacco. Oh and ignore the short lived opening which you may feel is harsh or unpleasant .The heart and base...
I don't care if it ranks highly or not. IMO It's a beautiful scent. More of an experience rather than just another good fragrance. A gem. Thank god it's not popular.
Looks much better! now at least I can consider buying this. That torso bottle was just too creepy & cheap looking.
Wow. Looks like it could be something quite nice & unique. Interesting bottle too.
Gucci pour homme II - Cool black tea & chilled cinnamon with a light, sweet and slightly metallic tobacco note in the background. wonderful stuff.
Prada Infsuion d'homme - A fizzy mandarin...
Prada Infusion d'homme / amber PH
Diesel fuel for life
Creamy sweet 'n' sour raspberry yoghurt
The Dreamer! It has this fresh , clean & powdery vibe with an airy tobacco note. A pleasure to wear in hot weather and is a great option for romantic summer evenings.
We want a "The one INTENSE" and not a sport version of something which was supremely weak to begin with! for the love of god , why aren't they getting the message ? Why not follow the example of Dior...
I wish I could but most of these matching products are way too overpriced when bought separately. Gift packs are the way to go but most of my favourite fragrances don't come in gift packs and so I'll...
How about terre d'hermes ? Not tried it yet but from the reviews it seems to be an excellent dirty citrus.
GIT is a good choice but what if she thinks your wearing Cool water ? xD
IMO go with La nuit !
Especially some nice cotton polo shirts :)
I like 'Oceans' best from the Nautica line but still don't feel it warrants a full bottle purchase. IMO Prada infusion d'homme and gucci ph 2 are one of the best spring/summer scents in the designer...
Wow I'm a fan of your posts , you buy some awesome stuff which I can only dream about buying. :thumbsup:
Oh btw , Happy birthday!
Dude all my uncles own that one ! :laugh: It's a nice one though but I'm not to keen about smelling like my uncles :laugh:
Must give it a try just for that bottle :)
I doubt it man , the main reason I love my DH & DHI is the cocoa and iris while I hate rubbery notes which MIP has apparently , they make me sick :D
