Giorgio VIP for me thanks to Stuigi.
L'anarchiste would be my choice. Too bad I had serious longevity issues with it. If It lasted on me for more than an hour I would still own it.
In my opinion Serge Noire is almost exactly like Idole, at least in the opening. Lasted on me all day and into the next.
Burberry for men 1991 version
Especially the Clive Chrisitan. Billed as the most expensive fragrance ever. I have tested and at one time owned all three of the offerings for men I see...
I don't know if it is undervalued in terms of cost but I do believe it is underappreciated or hardly mentioned on these boards
Cote Bastide Amber
I do like the 1776 and I thank two roads for turning me on to it. Another sleeper for me at least is Royal Brier. I can't get enough of that stuff. It too comes in a big splash bottle. I don't...
SL Bois Oriental from a decant.
I am not that knowledgable about Feminine fragraces but I think that you are doing the right thing by testing alot. Don't be shy about going back to the SA for more samples....
Young folks these days. What will we ever do with them. LOL.
In my opinion there is really no age on a cologne or fragrance. Any age that is there is only in your mind. If you like it then...
I really like L'anarchiste but it doesn't last on me for more that an hour or two. If you want to spray and not worry about how many times that is one I would suggest. If...
I agree with petruccigc,
When I first started lurking here and then joined I went all out. I bought bottle after bottle. Then I would have to sell the...
See if someone on the site has a small sample of Creed Erolfa for you to try. It is more on the Oceanic side. Sort of salty, Iodine like. Bulgari has an aquatic but the name escapes me now.
Introducing yourself is a great idea. That is what I did when I first joined. I must have done ok cause this is the very first internet forum site I joined. Boy was I...
I guess what I am getting at is when they say orange blossom I always thought it meant from the same tree we get our oranges that we eat . I hate neroli and all its works and all its ways. I have...
This is kinda a newb question so I thought it should be on this board. I always get fooled when the perfume house lists orange blossom or orange notes in their scent description. It usually turns...
I just copied this link off their website. I also ordered a 2 ml bottle of the perfume. I found it on the website with absolutly no problem.
Feuille de Tabac by Miller Harris
Habanita. This may be a wear at home frag. I like it but I might be a bit gunshy about wearing it to work. It is a tad bit more feminine than I am comfortable wearing at my place of work. My self...
I have sampled quite a few from this line. I have tried and tried to like at least one of their frags. The closest I came was bigarrade concentre. It had poor sillage on me and seemed not much...
When ever I have purchased a flacon it has arrived safely with no spillage. The only time spillage has happened is if I swap or sell a partial flacon. That glass lid, once opened. does not seal as...
Iquitos- Way too much rose makes me nausous
I used to put a spritz on my hands and rub it on my neck and through my hair then I combed my hair. I use a product from Kiehls that you rub on your hair to make it lie down and not frizz. I love...
This hobby has been mine for a while and over time I have felt that smaller bottles are the way to go. I also like to rotate and the only creed one oz I have completly gone through is Tab Milliseme....
I too have gotten a fake GIT. I got my money back but it took constant polite pressure from me to make it happen. The Guy accused me of all sorts of things. I was besmurching his good name and...
I have run across Molton Brown and Gilchrist and Soames. I also like the products at the Holiday express. Personally I am not the least bit bothered by staying at a motel 6 or super 8. Most of the...
If you use two sprays you will wish to dear God you hadn't even 6 hours later. I can smell it quite distinctly the next am and only a shower makes it go away. Somewhat.
I loved Molton Browns Black Pepper, The Rive Gauche shower gel is intense but I just couldn't get into the scent itself.
I just recieved small amts of Tabac Blond and Habanita from perfumelle yesterday. Love them both. I don't find them at all unwearable as a man. I would say they really are unisex before calling...
Don't get me wrong. I liked Straight to Heaven but I found it a bit linear. A bit boozy at first like Idole but then turns into this woody monster sort of like montales Greyland. For me it just...
GIT first because it is so versitile. Cuir d Russe because it is a manly citrus and great for all year round.
My heavy artillary is Tab milliseme though,
Hats off to jaime B and sculpture. I had asked this question about a year ago but the answers left it a little murky for me. Now I think I understand it better.
I find Creed's Cuir d Russe to be...
I have heard some here mention that Obsession was reformulated at one point. Just curious if it was and if so is there a " Vintage Obsession"? It could be my imagination but it just doesn't smell...
I was told some time ago by one of the ladies that run Luscious cargo that the reason they kept pulling things from their website made by LV was that thier distributer or thier ability to meet orders...
Jimi Hendrix- And the Gods made love
Jim Morrison- Lizard King
The Three Stooges- L'eau a wise guy huh
Charlie Chaplin- Black white and silent
Gary Busey- Scent of my lower companion
Cote Bastide Amber. I have tried lots of ambers and this is far and away the best I have tried. More complex than AP or L'eau.
Welcome to the site,
I will add just a bit to the decant bottle thing. I try to get two or more sample tubes of the fragrance I want to try and put them in the decant bottle. I think...
I tried this a number of years ago. I would like to try it again. I would also like to know if it is still in production? The fragrance directory says it is. Is it difficult to find? I just...
I love animalic scents. I have several of the frags mentioned here that have civit note in them but I'll be darned if I know or can detect this note in a fragrance. I would appreciate any help...
Burberry for men 1981 version not 1991

Most hated: Drakkar Noir
Most loved: Vintage Burberry for men, Ungaro ll, Vintage Giorgio for men, Vintaage Red for men, Vintage Greenbrier
I don't think that those that resell the vintage version of giorgio for men will have any problem. I think the current rerelease is terrible in comparison. I can't speak for the rerelease of red as...
If he doesn't like to shop go to the store yourself. Get sample tubes of the ones you like and take them to him. If he still won't sample them spray him when he is asleep LOL.
Midnight Violets is my favorite and I think well worth getting a sample of to try. All the rest that I have tried are less than desirable for me. Midnight brings back memories of the two chair...
I prefer the assoluta. I don't think of it as sweet at all. To my nose it is a dry but very wearable citrus. It smells somewhat old fashioned to me. Victorian era I suppose,
Cote Bastide- Amber EDT
Happy Birthday to tao lady and kiatbkk. Wearing Kenneth Cole RSVP today. I love that musky tangy bottom note.
In my mind I would find the following " houses" to be similar in nature, " old world charm", to penhaligons.
Truefitt and hill
Taylors of old bond st.
I had myself put on a waiting list for giorgio for men edt and had been on the list for some time. Got a call at work from perfumelle saying they had the edt version. I bought...
I just thought of another product they used in the barbershop I frequented as a young boy. It was called " Wild root". I can't remember if there was a scent or if it was a hair tonic or what.
I love amber and have tried alot of different ones. Surprisingly Ambre Precieux, Ambre Extreme and L'eau d' ambre are too sweet for me. Ambre Sultan is too sweet for me as are almost all of SL's...
I live and was raised in a small midwestern town that had several old time barber shops. This was loooong before it became acceptable or even fashionable for men to go to a stylist. I believe that...
I never had any actual " trouble" with Luscious Cargo, or Marcy. She was always quite responsive when called on the phone. Hardly at all responsive via e-mail. Very gracious lady to talk to on the...

From a sample
Thanks tworoads great stuff
Royal brier today. Mmmmmmmmm.
Giorgio Red for men
I think Bulgari pour homme could be nice. I also, like everyone else here, recommend that you sample, sample, sample. Go to the store. Find one you think you might like. Spray some on your wrist...
I would encourage leather scents for you. I am not certain but I believe Kouros is a Leather. I would also recommend Knize 10, Creed Royal English leather, CM jockey club, I am sure others on this...
I am mostly certain they do not use that cruel method to obtain civit any more. I was just havin a bit o fun on the boards today..
Personally I think that Giorgio, reserve and Red have got Patou and Derby beat by a mile. But I am still a babe in the woods here on the site and can always learn something from my wiser basenote...
The south end of a live, enraged northbound civit cat? LOL
Another for chergui
I used to wear this way back in the day. It was in my opinion a great fragrance. I think it is almost extinct now. Does anyone know of any substitute or something similar. I definatly don't mean...
Used to use dial in our family while growing up. The scent that reminds me the most of it is Gucci Pour homme. The original vintage formula. I believe it is discontinued now.
caravelle epicee- one spray and massive sillage
I quite agree. Just bought opium den and was very disappointed. Barely able to detect any scent.
Keiko Mechari-Paname from a sample
Using a sample of gs02 today. liking it but no longevity or sillage on my skin type.
My brother used to wear this back in the day. Probably 1973, 1974. I have no Idea why I had never tried it. I got a sample on a card a few weeks ago in a box with other purchases from...
Balenciaga and creeds inconsistant spray mechanism.
I really appreciate our friendship and your insightful posts. Congrats Sir on a fine accomplishment.
All the Best
Elsha 1776 a sample generously provided by tworoads. Thanks again Paul
I don't know why or how it evolved sociatally but it seems lately there are alot of folks just waiting around looking for somthing to be offended about. I am not sure but my theory is that we in the...
It is as great as I remember from years ago. I feel sophisticated and civilized.
aqua de parma colonnia assoluta
Powerhouse citrus lasts all day and then some.
I think that Montale patchouli leaves smells like freshly turned black loam.
I find Dyptique and Serge lutins to be mostly unwearable to me. With the exception of MKK and chergui. I have respect for these houses though. Dyptique is too odd for me and Lutins is too goopy...
I find that Aqua de Parma colonnia assoluta is quite simalar and as wearable as neroli suavage
Ave Luxe absinthe
Mouchiour de monsuier
I prefer the saron note in Jack Black Black Mark more so than troublant and homme sage.
Almost any of the rose scents
all the vetiver scents
all neroli scents except Neroli suavage
Great stuff. I highly recommend it. Good lather too unlike some body washes
I don't have a favorite review but a favorite reviewer- The infamous and ever elusive mr nead nitram.
I hope I am remebering this correctly. Isn't he the one that speaks of de charlus
My first dissapointment is not even a fragrance but related. I was very dissapointed when the Ave Luxe website shut down just as I was hearing about the frags and became interested.
Thanks Zibeline, You've convinced me to try a sample package from Michael.
Mazzolari Lui on a cold, blustery, rainy December 23
I owned a bottle of the pure perfume spray at one time. I swapped it away. Too feminine for me and not all that outstanding in my opinion. Clive bills his offerings as the most expensive on the...
A few months ago a woman who was very elegantly dressed to the nines walked on our unit to get some pamphlets on stress and potential job loss for her company which was going out of buisness. She...
Tabarome Millisime- for me this one has a nice raunchy basenote that I just groove on all day. I guess I am just a barely civilized barbarian at heart.
I thought they were the same thing but in some recent posts it seems that maybe they aren't. Anyone out there know the difference and can describe it for me if there is one. I can't stand Neroli...
I absolutly loved Musk Musk but I couldn't get past the Floral part of the scent. Every thing else in the scent was just what I wanted in a musk. Scutty, Dirty, So down in the dirt musk but I think...
