Caron 3rd Man goes through so many changes, great stuff
I like Jo Malone's Rose Cologne
I like Jo Malone's Rose Cologne
Another great one for men is Mitousko EDT, the EDP wears a little too thick on me
Confidence and a little booze will make Aqua di gio smell like Serge Lutens
Dior Homme. I prefer the "vintage" (lol, a year old) EDT to the current Dior Homme Extreme, but still very good.
Chanel Coromandel...a dream
Perhaps Chanel Egoiste (not platinum) and Caron 3eme Homme would be to your liking
Oud 27 and Labo's Iris are my favorites
Chanel Sycomore + Guerlain Jicky EDT
The Lubin with the mask on the bottle (duh)
I love Egoiste though I wish it were a bit denser (I guess that's what the Concentree is for) and with a more substantial bottle/cap.
A*Men - la nuit shrills
lol A+ comment
Concentree d'Orange Verte by Hermes.
Chanel Cuir de Russie over Guerlain Vetiver is wonderful
I was disgusted by MdM at first sniff - two weeks later I sniffed my sample again and bought a full bottle. Magical stuff
bottle looks a lot like dior's
To wear daily, L'instant PH
Otherwise, Mouchoir de Monsieur
I would love to know the same thing - I've only sampled the EDP and it smells thick sweet and greasy, like a cookie sheet
Chanel Antaeus is the most aloof fragrance i own
I'm thinking about a jug of Chanel Coromandel - I'm telling myself it'll be my last purchase for years
MdM first, then Apres l'Ondee and then Jicky :P
You should get samples of:
Chanel Egoiste (NOT PLatinum Egoiste), Coromandel
Guerlain Vetiver, L'instant pour homme,
Caron Pour un Homme, Le Troisieme Homme (3rd...
Bois des Iles, Mouchoir de Monsieur
I have both. I think Antaeus is a bit colder and aloof while Egoiste is warmer - I have no doubts that you'll get more compliments from Egoiste, which is more a crowd pleaser.
28 La Pausa is incredible but very short-lived - buy the jug
+ Apres l'Ondee by Guerlain
Bois des Iles, Chanel
To say that it's light on new material is an ENORMOUS understatement - there are - maybe - 12 updates. The book is the same as their previous effort - there are no new reviews, just updates. A...
I wore Yatagan for two weeks at the beach in the summer during the day, it was great
I cycle through obsessions (cashmere, leather, and most recently perfumes). I try to follow the 5 piece french wardrobe (adding only 4-5 things per season) to restrain myself. I've built a...
I've worn the EDP before and it's beautiful. I could never wear it for myself, though, big shoes to fill.
I love Shalimar, Vetiver, Le Male, Chanel Edition Blanche -- I dont own any :(
I had the same realization. Today I own Mouchoir de Monsieur, Jicky, and Eau du Coq. In the near future I'd like to get Vetiver and Shalimar (edt) and I'd love to try Cologne du 68 and L'instant...
This thing lasts 10 hours+ on my skin, and on my clothes for weeks; different for everyone i guess
I know their stuff is really high quality but as compositions they're uninteresting (imo of course)
Cuir Lancome + Caron Third Man
Chanel Sycomore + Caron Third Man
(The Caron's clove and lavender does something great to the Lancome and make the Chanel a little brighter)
To all: I am curious to know what qualities of Habit Rouge or any other masculines are considered "old mannish" - genuinely interested, not just being a dic*
In order of "masculinity"
Sycomore, Coromandel, Cuir Russie, 28 La Pausa (VERY short lived), 31 Rue Cambon
I have great memories of this fragrance so I am biased, but I do think it would be excellent to have in a warmer place where other fragrances could come off as funky. Once I finish Monsieur Balmain,...
Given your price range you should look into Dior Homme (not intense) and Gucci Pour Homme I. The first is iris//lavender/vanilla/cocoa/leather. Gucci PH is also excellent, a ton of incense and cedar....
I wear whatever suits my clothes
In back row from left to right:
Chanel: Antaeus, Egoiste, Cuir Russie, Sycomore; Dior Homme; Guerlain Mouchoir de Monsieur, Jicky; YSL Kouros
After rabidly sh*tting on Dior, I bought Dior Homme at Sephora. The juice out of the tester was pleasant enough (it was either this or Chanel Edition Blanche), but I asked for a cabinet bottle--"Give...
And sociology as well ;)
mais chacun à son goût!
Kilian A taste of heaven
Oud 27 is incredible
Bulgari Black, Guerlain Jicky (EDT for the vanilla note)
There is a strong clove that works nicely with the jasmine and orange blossom/peel
Mouchoir de Monsieur - I dabbed a 2ml sample and all I got was a blast of urine...then I went to sleep sniffing my wrist
OOO I've been curious about BaV, hopefully more people will weigh in
Creed's frags in general are shrill to my nose, the exception was GIT, nothing I'd spend more than $50 on.
Chanel Cuir de Russie - I wear it whenever I go get tested :)
Bois des Iles is so beautiful. I bought Egoiste as a cheaper alternative but I'd love to buy BdI as a gift for someone I'd see everyday.
Bottles: Chanel Coromandel, Guerlain Vetiver (I'll wait for Spring/Summer to replace my disappointing Monsieur Balmain) and Jicky EDP (I'll wait until my EDT is used up)
Congrats I hope you like it and post your opinions, I'm curious about Knize Ten myself. I have a big jug of CdR and I can't get enough of the leather
+1, don't blind buy anything at all
I have to say that I like both the old and new formulations of Dior Homme. Both are of excellent quality, but there are thousands of other perfumes out there -- it's time to move on. Yes, the...
Is the juniper berry very pronounced? It sounds interesting
I like Antaeus - the dry down reminds of the smell of chewed honeycomb
I looked up older threads but all I could find were discussions about Foucault. Does Heritage bear strong similarities to other Guerlain masculines? I'm on the hunt for something warm and inviting....
there should be a "none" option
I would choose something that would complement the smell of the smoke and fire
I absolutely love 3eme Homme, though admittedly it took a few full wearings of a decant for it to click so to speak.
I think once you get used to the JASMINE which is the most challenging/heady part...
lol it's just perfume guyz
Most expensive would be the exclusif jugs (cdr and sycomore), though they're actually great deals. next jugs: coromandel and 31 rue cambon
I didn't think highly but I gave it some time and I was able to pick and distinguish notes I love, the castoreum, the pine - I love it equally alongside the much more expensive and plush Cuir de...
That website is hilarious, thanks for posting.
someone is ballin'
That I wear:
Chanel Exclusives: In order of perceived "masculinity" and tenacity: Sycomore, Coromandel, 31 Rue Cambon, Cuir Russie, 28 La Pausa
I find these Chanels to be very comfortable,...
I love PUH, Yatagan and 3rd Man, they're my fragrance bread and butter
Only embarrassment has prevented me from buying Addict, it's great
Chanel Sycomore - lovely incense and pepper notes
Bulgari Black, Gucci Pour Homme I
Gucci Pour Homme I reminds me of a particular indigenous ceremony. When I smell it, it transports me to the burning of incense and wood, the hummed chants, and the quiet of the moment. It makes me...
I think the only way Dior will get the message is if they see a drop in their sales. I've considered buying Dior Homme (because I liked the vintage) but I don't want to support a company that...
I love the stuff but I don't want to break the bank. What perfumes like it (in notes or attitude) would you recommend?
I sprayed Guerlain L'Instant Pour Homme on a strip about a week ago and the...
This has been my only successful blind buy - I love layering a spray of Gucci Pour Homme I over it
During the summer, Monsieur Balmain
Now, Caron Pour un homme
Chanel Sycomore, there is a wonderful incense note. Encre Noire for its simplicity. I dont find it dark or moody at all, rather cold and clear.
Why is Guerlain considered a design house?
Of those two, Allure.
Egoiste (not platinum) is great for fall as well, sweet and warm sandalwood. Antaeus is excellent but I'd rather wear it in the winter.
I'd choose Egoiste even though I already have it - backup never hurts :)
It seems that Dior goes through more drastic reformulations than other houses. To be honest I've never really been a fan, perhaps because I've never had a chance
I don't recommend blind buying, it's expensive and risky. The money you could spend on a blind buy could buy up to a dozen or so samples, one (or several) of which you could absolutely adore.
Is it possible to check the batch code/ date of the juice inside from the box itself? Information could be useful when buying, especially with the cosmetic calculator (http://checkcosmetic.net/)
I had the opportunity to smell the new Dior Homme (both intense and the edt) and I have to say that while the reformulations are very obviously high quality fragrances, they feel like photocopies of...
