- Amouage Memoir Man
Ok, guys, what will be your Starting Lineup for this year? :D
1. Work - Amouage Reflection Man
2. Formal - Creed Aventus
3. Date - Carner Barcelona D600
- It must smell nice;
- Must be wearable during (at least) 2 seasons.
- It may be not the easiest fragrance to wear;
- Must be different from the majority of know/usual...
About 30 samples.
From the list, YSL - L'Homme.
Like I wrote several times before, which fragrance gets more compliments is a subjective matter. There are many variables to consider. What would be your perfect signature scent? I believe only you...

1- Creed Aventus

Well, taking in account that to make a rigorous analysis I should consider the same amount of tested fragrance, I will make a TOP 3 of my favorite houses judging by the average results and number of...
Bond No 9 Riverside Drive.
FINAL OVERALL RANKING (Pt.s 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5) - Average results by house
Number of fragrances tested: 11
Average results: 8.64
Thanks, MattJP! Will be great to see you posting.
Thanks, buddy. I will add more information today.
Reflection Man, without doubt. Reflection Man is a masterpiece, Pegasus is a good fragrance.
Iīd advise you to sample first.
I have to agree with you about some of those fragrances. Until recent times, I simply couldnīt stand Interlude Man, but I must agree itīs really a very good fragrance. MFK Oud is nice, but not on my...
I donīt know every fragrance of the list. But, from those I know, Interlude Man.
Ok, guys, here are the results by house:
GENERAL OVERALL RANKINGS BY HOUSE (Pts. 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5)
Memoir Man ---------> 8.92 ***
Lyric Man -------> 8.89**
Reflection Man ------->...
No, not at all! Tuscan Leather, for example, is a fragrance that many people showed indifference or/and negative comments. Still is my #1 fragrance. Thereīs nothing better to me in the world of...
Iīm changing my opinion regarding Interlude Man, as I (now) think itīs a very good fragrance. Very well done, very unique...but it simply made people that smell it to think it was...
Well, sadly, itīs my case. :D
Mona Di Orio fragrances that I own are not among loved, have to say.
From the list, Aventus.
Hereīs my opinion regarding the "giant" of those houses:
Amouage - Lyric Man
Xerjoff - Uden
Creed - Aventus
Dior - Amber Nuit
Hermes - Ambre Narguille
I believe that is really tricky to tell whatīs the best house. There are too many variables to consider. For instance, Xerjoff may be a house of incredible quality, but I may, in general, not like...
Well, maybe itīs my skin, but I was shown that I simply stink while wearing MFK Oud. I personally like the fragrance.
Yes, my friend, they stand among the ones others dislike the most!
In my case, Amouage and Creed shine, and yes, Iīve to agree that those fragrances of these houses mentioned are somehow "easy"/"easier" to like fragrances. Norne, Sova, Jeke and Ore donīt get any...
Well, as you know, Iīm a niche guy. Although I agree there are incredibly good (and many masterpieces) in the realm of designer, I think that niche are, in general, the "Everest" of...
Iīm very curious, to be honest!
Thanks for you input.
Yeah, Iīm actually thinking about 2022 Generation Man and Black Gemstone.
To be honest, lavender is a tricky note for me. Thanks for you suggestions!
No, I havenīt. Creed is one of the houses Iīve tested more and Iīm glad I did. Itīs one of my favorites!
Thanks for you suggestions, my friend!
Well, I guess you can say that rose is a tricky note for you. I understand your discontentment regarding the money spent, but, my friend, thatīs the risk we take when buying things we do not know....
This! Personally, itīs among my Top 3 Amouage fragrances and Iīm a picky with rose based scents.
Well, this poll results is going as I expected, to be honest (relatively close results). :thumbsup:
Amouage Memoir Man
Amouage Lyric Man
Amouage Reflection Man
Amouage Dia Man
Amouage Beloved Man
Amouage Jubilation XXV
Thank you for your recommendations. Iīve already tested TV and Tabac Rouge. Personally, I prefer the latter. Will take a look at that house!
Back to Black
Yes, I did. Back to Black was my vote.
Back to Black, for me!
Ok, guys, here we go!
Itīs a great way to spending a couple of hours! :) No doubt about that!
I can only have acess to Episode 2. Somehow I canīt find 1.
You may find it here:
Yes, I though about that one too.
Itīs great, really! Some of them will order samples, after smelling these fragrances! :thumbsup:
Any fragrance in particular?
2022 Generation Homme?
I agree, my friend.
Thanks for posting!
Although itīs not my favorite Amouage, I think itīs really great! :thumbsup:
Ages were, 30, 31, 35 and 37. Sometimes I did tell. Of course, not everyone agreed whith genderīs labels:
- Back to Black: for most it was a menīs fragrances.
- Dhajala: some thought it was...
Have to agree.
So, once again, recently, I had another good time with a group of friends of mine. As always, we had dinner at a friendīs house. Dinner was over, and then, niche time came! As always, I did spray all...
From those, Iīd go for Aventus or CGD 2Man.
I personally donīt do it. I sample/test fragrances first, always. But you never know if Iīll do it in the future.
Amouage Dia Man!
Thank you, guys!
I already tested MFK Oud. Very nice scent, but...doesnīt work on my skin.
Thanks for your suggestions! :thumbsup:
After thinking better, I decided not to go for Fate Man an Honor Man. I also decided to add Fčve Délicieuse to the list.
Ok! Thank you, my friend.
Amouage Beloved Man.
Yes, I intend to sample it exactly because of that. Iīve already reviewed Byredo Black Saffron, Montale Aoud Leather and Parfums de Marly Godolphin. All of them have similarities, but are not...
Yes, Iīm really anxious these those 3. The one Iīm most curious about is Al-Khatt. I read horrible things about it, but also incredible ones. :D
Thank you, my friend.
Whatīs your opinion about LM Parfums Black Oud?
I already reviewed Portrait of a Lady, but Iīll consider Vetiver Babylone.
Thanks for your suggestions!
Ok, I intend to know more niche fragrances. I already have some "targets", but it would be great for you to give suggestions for more than those Iīm already thinking about sampling. You...
Great to see you typing, my friend!
Yes, I really love Dia Man! If only it had Lyric Manīs performance...! As for Fars, Iīm not convinced...yet, at least!
Itīs quite possible to do a future...
Iīd love to help, but the fact is that itīs highly subjective. That are too many variables to consider. I can tell you what are the fragrance I wear that draw more compliments, if you wish, but I...
Yes. This part showed that I really like Parfums de Marly and Mancera. Amouage was just a confirmation! :D

Yeah, I agree. I recall the moment I smelled this. It was love at first sniff! Really unique scent, with quality! Iīm not a guy that enjoys oud easily, but this is simply beautiful!!
Ambre Nuit followed by Bois D'Argent.
---------->Mancera Sand Aoud<----------
Hot spices, Blackcurrant liqueur, Saffron powder, Patchouli, Vanilla and White musk.
Opinion: Ok, the usual statement, as soon Iīm loving...
Parfums de Marly Herod.
You should really sample Ambre Nuit! Highly recommended!
Thatīs a fact, my friend! :)
Amazing fragrance! :thumbsup:
Although I wrote Reflection Man, Amouage has a "problem". :D It simply has many incredible fragrances! :D :D
Memoir Man, Reflection Man, Lyric Man, Dia Man and Beloved Man are simply INCREDIBLE...
Well, itīs completely fine not to enjoy a certain house. However, Iīd advise you to sample Double Vanille.
If it makes you feel better, at start I didnīt like Tuscan Leather and Back to Black....
