Jovan Monsieur ;)
Dead on arrival. Not gonna sell, and the retail stores know that. Straight to TJMaxx, Ross, and Marshalls.
R de Capucci. Don't go playing games with his heart now! ;)
Try Eau De Grey Flannel for Swiss Army Classic.
A dirt cheap great smelling aromatic fougere that remains "extremely competitive" with its expensive counterparts is Lomani Pour Homme. If you like Drakkar Noir you'll love Lomani. Bought mine for...
Look no further than Karl Lagerfeld Kapsule Light. Not much unlike Lucky No. 6, but with more wood, saffron, ISO E Super, and less musk.
Antonio Puig SybAris
Scratch both, and go with Antoio Puigs Agua Brava
The current formulation of Drakkar Noir is a ghost of the original, I'm fortunate to own a 50ml aerosol bottle made in 1982, the longevity, and sillage are remarkable. As green as can be, and one of...
No regrets here, and I've made a lot of blind buys based solely on packaging. Something about eighties perfume packaging that screams "My font looks good, my name is exotic, buy me!..you won't regret...
Yes! these are all amazing scents, Havana never fails to put a smile on my face when worn. Aramis 900 is awesome! Let's not forget Tuscany Uomo, always puts me in a good mood. My favorite of the...
Alain Delon AD, I backed it up with it's smoother and more "appealing to the masses" twin called AD Plus! Both are derived from the inimitable creation named Caron Le Troisemme Homme. Also Giorgio...
Yes! It's on my to try list, I've heard no wardrobe can be complete without this one.
Hugo By Hugo Boss (the one in the canteen bottle) introduced millions of people to Boss as a fragrance house. The marketing behind it was innovative and unlike any other fragrance marketing, i.e.:...
Yes, I heard it is the first edible fragrance to hit the market. it probably smells like a codfish, and tastes like a chicken run/gizzards. MUY FEA! Won't be purchasing.
I layered dzing and Dzonghka. Smelled like an old Roald Dahl bookset that I own.
The one that smells like Rosemary and a ham sangwitch! Purple Patchouli!
It reeks of an old shoe box filled with drug money and cocaine! It's about as attractive as an uneducated thug decked out in baggy clothes screaming this is his year. *Esta es el año!*
Joop Jump rocks! Props to the OP!
Any fragrance put out by this house after 2000 are asthma inducing failures, especially the one with the mace accord. Enjoy the apple smelling one though!
Opium For Women! The perfect fragrance for the astute man. 😉
Dodge those two and get Love (Berry Parfait Desert) or A Taste Of Heaven (Pure Lavender). Pass on the StH smells like spoiled liquor, and ISO E Super.
The original (box on the left) is THE one to get!
A top hat and 4711 Jacaranda is all you need for Cabo!
Parfum d' habit and santal noble. Unique, and elegant smelling. Nothing compares to these ones.
Did it make you dislike the fragrance? I was wearing Balenciaga Pour Homme while coping with my biggest hangover. It is still in my rotation, and in my top ten.
Lacoste Off & On
Good luck SFN! Viva Amouage!
Spray Navy in your desired spots, then follow with sprays of Coco Extreme. Less of a hassle, and would also prevent caking, and clumping if blended in decants.
Andnext on my buy list a ye olde flacon of Royal Oud!
I had no idea they had a mouthwash line! The ingredients that Dental Elixir is enriched with makes me want to tinker with my Scope, and make my own niche mouthwash. *GARGLE GARGLE*
I don't like it.
Try mixing Navy for men and Bomptoir Sud Pacifique Coco Extreme. Poor mans VIW.
It's a nice scent. Gucci by gucci however smells like something a failed rapper would wear.
As true as blue. Legit bottle. Not a fake.
This one really is a special subtle scent. Wears like an EDC. The best offering from this house since Lacoste Pour Homme (2002).
Probably Boss in Motion, and anyone from my Al Haramain collection.
Jil Sander Bath & Beauty
Wise words from a very wise man! :D
Not to get off track here but I have a 1oz Nautica Voyage distributed by Coty, and a 3.4oz distributed by Lancaster. Does anybody know which one is older/better?
Might I add Contradiction, and Bad English. R.P. would give these to his comrades. Because he's a nut case who's as cool as Fonzi!
I love the presentation of the 3. Hope I'm not greeted by notes of poached eggs, and stagnated "lemony" water like their first release.
Can't go wrong with Encre Noir in the spring time! That fresh Polaroid picture inky note is so addictive!
Have you created any interesting combos? What do they smell like?
Lolita lempicka "L" and Fleur Defundue got them for a steal at $19.99 at Marshalls. Cute bottles! :D
The one that wouldn't be worn by Bebop & Rocksteady.
Sounds like the seller who was selling gallons of fake DKNY 6 years ago.
I was under the impression that if it doesn't have the "pitch-in" "garbage can" De Silva decal at the bottom it isn't officially vintage.
With me it is Aramis. Such a beautiful list of notes. I really want to like this fragrance, and know that it will one day get as much play as the others in my rotation. Until then it remains in the...
Too dark, and too sweet. I owned Alien Parfum de Liqueur, and let it go on the boards.
Yes! Clean public toilets, and basements in the Yunnan Province of China!
I'd go with Lalique Pour Homme Lion. Ambergris, Calone, and a touch of Salem cigarettes for an older gentleman vibe.
I tend to gravitate towards my aquatics when dawning a hat (baseball cap).
Tipping my hat to you for an excellent interpretation.
Exchange it for New West. Tuscany is lighter than Havana too, however it might be harder to find.
Not impressed by the fragrances put out by this house.
Every new release by Dolce & Gabbana since By Man.
Simon says Platinum Egoiste (middle-run formulation)
Xerjoff Nio is a winna!
"Scent of the Gods?" More like the scent of a Neanderthal!
Also wearing Platinum Egoiste (Vintage). This one has the sillage of fumes from of a 767, and the longevity of powder that emits from a 367. Shame on Chanel for altering the formula and bottles on...
Don't forget the up and down test.
Santa Maria Novella Acqua Di Colognia Russa
Max Deville Camera
I wish your next purchase to arrive faster than a speeding woodpecker with a weasel on his back!
$4 Dollars shipped!? This must be the Amazonian "Blue Light Special" of the year! Amazing!
Dior Homme! Smells like the bottom of a make-up purse, complete with clumps of old butterscotch, and rustic pennies.
Yes, I know, my vintage bottle will do just fine, it gets a lot of compliments. The stuff is so elegant, I feel I need me a Beamer in order to wear it.
My '88 has a brown tint.
Not gonna hassle trying to find this one, probably one of the reformulations that smells like "old man dust" and "wine."
No alcohol was used in the making of this scent, and still longevity is at 13+ hours on my skin. It smells like talcum powder, dirty sand from a beach club, and (ironically) drinkable alcohol. Not...
Recently went to Wal-Marty and smelled it. Smells the same as when I first discovered it in '95. I now can confirm with some of the reviewers that it is indeed a close-cousin of Giorgio Beverly Hills...
Might I add that it was awfully powdery.
Why is the fluid green? Also, there is no birthdate on the back. Was about to buy it, but clearly it's nothing but a fake. Smelled like shampoo.
Dancing all the way to the BANK to pull out chump change for these!
Some say it's similar to Lacoste Land. Released in 2014 concocted in '93.
It's the illegal Dashboard Confessional app. You'll go to prison.
Searching everywhere, can't seem to find it.
Giorgio Beverly Hills Red (Vintage)
Ralph Lauren Purple Label
And when it finally took off, Lagerfeld coat-tailed it's success, and cut into Eternitys sales by offering free shirts with Photo.
Depends on why your flying. If you're being exiled, then damn right they'll confiscate it. :D
I put my money on something by Faberge, or perhaps even Jovan.
For my Valentine I would have gone with Jivago and an added sprinkle of 24K Gold. She'll love you forever.
True. I believe with Phileas he replaced the pine note with a celery note. They're nearly identical.
There is no discernible tobacco accord in Van Cleef & Arpels Pour Homme, those who say there is must have their "wires-crossed."
Just thought I'd mention it since the directory urges us to "Let Us Know."
A fine scent indeed.
I would love to here Bigsly opinion in this thread. Sadly his account has been taken over by criminally insane hackers, hasn't been him for about six months. I believe he diluted his strong...
