SOTE: Kinski (sample)
Ditto. I might never have made the ink association had I not read others mention it but now I can't get away from it. Don't like it at all.
Last time I wore Sova I was told that I smelled like a glass of Maker's Mark bourbon that had been drunk several hours before. I had to ask if that was a good thing and was assured that it was....
Would Absolue Pour le Sois fit here? Musk isn't a listed note but the opening is unmistakable skank. I called it "sweaty butt crack" in another thread, and I mean that in a good way. Oddly...
Pure White Cologne
Penhaligon's Opus 1870
You guys realize the last post made in this thread up until 30 minutes ago was almost four years ago right?
I loved the smell of both Five O'clock au Gingembre and Cedre on paper but they didn't work on my skin. I also like Tubereuse Criminelle but the only one I actually own is Fille en Aiguilles.
It's coming back. I just read this on twitter:
This is good news for anybody that missed out when it was discontinued. Love this stuff.
Coming this Winter: Aoud Dumpster
Full Incense is a good one but most all of the rest that I have tried (40+) are just a mess, particularly the Aouds. I get the appeal of sillage and longevity but for most all that I have tried I...
Fragrance Republic's 01/03. Sweet and summery and quite nice but sillage is poor and longevity isn't much better. The whole fragrance might work better as the top notes to a more complete composition.
Save for a few of their offerings I totally agree with you. Apparently you and I are in the minority however as they seemingly crank out a new bottle every other week.
Transferred everything to decants. I tried it again earlier today and I don't think number 5 is for me either. The anise is a turned up kinda loud. Also retried number one and don't care for it. Will...
Seems like it took them a couple of weeks before I got my shipment confirmation so hang in there.
To the OP- I slathered on 01/05 today. I have a hard time with dauber vials as I never feel like i...
You should also keep the ones that you currently don't think have potential. A year from now you will likely be surprised at your opinion of some of those as well (and some will remain...
Pure White Cologne (sample)
Atelier Cologne offers samples of all 17 of their scents for $25.
Amouage Fate Man today. My descriptive talents are nil so I won't embarrass myself, but I don't care for this stuff. Amouage is a tough house to wrap my head around.
Maybe consider an r or two :D

Re-trying my sample of Frapin 1270
I am with you here. Terrible and strong stuff (although I didn't buy it).
I think it's awful. The most prominent note according to Fragrantica users is "sea notes" which has a lot to do with my dislike. I hate most aquatic scents. I'll take the poop filled barnyard.
Nice job! Free is my favorite price.
Where are you in Texas? I picked up a few samples at Neiman Marcus at NorthPark Center mall on a recent trip to Dallas.
Love it and looking forward to fall weather so I can take it for a spin.
I like Interlude a lot and would love to have about 20ml. It is so powerful that I believe that amount would last me several years.
I am looking forward to the cooler weather just so I can finally wear the Fille en Aiguilles that I purchased in the summer.
Peace of Mind incense
Acqua di Parma Colonia
Redken high up spiking cream wax
Montale Black Aoud
Bentley Intense (not bad but the hype was HUGE here so my expectations were high)
Bleu de Chanel
Haitian Vetiver (sample)
I have been using this stuff for over 2 years and it has worked great for me. I have one in the bathroom and one in my travel bag and best I can tell, I am never going to run out of either one. These...
SOTE: Poivre Samarcande
Rochas Man is a good choice for an inexpensive scent, as would be Lolita Lempicka Au Masculin.
But consciously going without for a day or two would be considered fasting (and near impossible).
I see what you did there...lol.
Tried it recently and didn't care for it even a little bit. Just not my style at all.
Champa Flower incense
While I love Carnal Flower I tend to view it as a very feminine scent and don't think I would be comfortable were I to wear it.
Edit: answer found.
I thought MPeG only came in 100ml bottles.
Acqua di Parma Colonia (sample)
When is the reveal, Mike?
Based on this description I would say you have answered your own question. Enjoy!
Tried this today at Macy's for the first time. It's awful, just awful.
Each 1.2 ml sample is $12. You can get all 9 for $108. That's nuts
Ummm, wth is "orient"?
It will go a lot faster than you think, GIT is very versatile. It was one of my first "higher end" fragrances and still gets a lot of use in my wardrobe. Good choice, and welcome to basenotes!
I have sampled several Montale Aouds and came away almost universally disappointed. After reading the reviews of a few of the new ones (Aoud and Pine, Aoud Samarkand, etc.) I admit I am curious about...
Agree. Also Musc Ravageur by Frederic Malle
I was really looking forward to getting in on this one, until I read Mr. Burr's description. It just didn't sound like something that I would enjoy. Now based off of the few reviews above I am happy...
Montale Dark Purple (sample)
I like the tone of these forums specifically because of the niche discussions. I live in a smaller city so my access to more exclusive fragrances is quite limited. I do still appreciate the...
Atelier Vetiver Fatal (sample)
Lolita Lempicka Au Masculin
The AdP Leather, like the Oud is quite nice. I couldn't disagree more with the Tuscan Leather crowd. The AdP is much better. You made a wise choice my friend.
Declaration, Declaration d'Un Soir and Roadster
Green Irish Tweed
Frankincense scented incense cones. I have really been burning a lot of incense lately.
Bingo. Sweaty booty in a bottle, but in a good way.
