    Re: Arquiste Anima Dulcis

    In my experience as someone still relatively new to deliberately exploring fragrances, I've found that first impressions aren't always consistent. Sometimes I'll find upon subsequent sampling that...

    Re: Arquiste Anima Dulcis

    I had sampled this a long while back... couldn't remember. Does it feel like it has something in common with Slumberhouse Norne? That one gave me a very potent PNW forest kind of aroma.

    Re: Recommend fragrances similar to Kouros

    That's a good comparison, Titan. I can see the "Irish Spring" connection with Fraicheur.

    For a while, there was a glut of older Balenciaga Pour Homme and FragranceNet was dispensing a pretty...

    Re: Fragrances that "WOW" you recently?

    I'm glad you said that, because I just recently picked up a bottle of Mona di Orio Vetyver, in favor over spending a lot more for less quantity of Roja Dove Vetiver Extrait.

    I can see how you...

    Luca, I would so enjoy seeing you do a before/after reformulation comparative review with a few select fragrances, where some fail miserably and others manage to stay respectable.

    Oh sir, if you do that you can be guaranteed you'll set off a huge barrage of emboldened arguments between Aventus lovers and haters. The moderators will love you for it! ;)

    Re: Lutens fanboy thread

    Thanks! Yep, it's a Lincoln MKC... click "here" for the original commercial (there's a whole series of them now). Plus, if you enjoy the humor of Ellen Degeneres, she made a hilarious spoof on it.

    I don't like spraying fragrances on clothes. They can cause stains, depending upon the fragrance strength and the resilience of the cloth. Also, if your outerwear rubs against clothing that has...

    Re: Recommend fragrances similar to Kouros

    I have a small 30ml bottle of it and it does have a bit of a KOUROS vibe. But it's not a long term impression into the dry down.

    I'd say you need a dose of KOUROS Fraicheur. It's a wonderfully...
