Say word, son. Say word.
Best pick, in my view.
To the first question, yes, it's doable. Many men's fragrances are essentially rose with a multi-tonal masculine wrapper around it.
Amouage Taifi Rose.
The only one I liked and agreed with was Hiro. And the fragrance addiction guy. He's great, actually. The rest come across as dorks.
Wait, there's Freddy. Now there's a quality reviewer. ...
Cartier Heure Brilliante.
Try all of them three times and buy the one you like the most.
I believe that IFRA makes the world a better place and I only buy authorized, authentic products sold through authorized distribution channels.
That's my take on it.
Santos. With no limitation on price I'd say that Oud & Oud is Mathilde's magnum opus.
Pretty offensive, I'd say.
She's right about Terre d'Hermes, you know.
Both are amber-y. Both somewhat dark-ish. I like both. Different shades of the same mood.
So many to choose from. Western, Gaultier 2. Eastern, Amouage Tribute.
Meeting in a conference room, black tie event in a hotel, two different things. Depends on what business you're in. You have much more leeway in an off-premises event. Whatever your tribe allows. ...
Probably my father's bottle of Paco.
Givenchy Pi. Not discontinued, and totally awesome.
Musc Ravageur. If you survive the opening, it will passionately make love to you for hours.
Hanae Mori: first place. Edition Blanche: one of my more costly mistakes. Last place.
You did the right thing.
Coppertone or Piz Buin.
Non-sweet? Mona, probably.
Deep Rose is my pick, though I imagine that for most it requires a certain level of self-assurance. Supposedly has oud - or the synthetic that for some reason is referred to as oud - but there's...
ASAQ Misk Al Jism.
Mods - Google it before you taze me!
The One, although, I wouldn't make a priority of wearing either. But out of the two, The One.
Perlier Honey Miel.
Cartier Treizieme Heure. Trust me on this.
Second the Hanae Mori.
Never got around to it.
No. It's the opposite of what you wrote, in my experience.
Totally forgot KL Homme. Good call. It's hard to find orientals from that era. It's a good one.
I predict that aquatics, like anything else, will be seen, eventually, by a new generation, as something associated with parents, or the proverbial pervy uncle, and they will slip into the mists of...
I have a bottle of Original Santal, although I don't know where it is at the moment. Haven't seen it in months. I'll be disappointed if I can't find it.
Santos, Santos Eau de Sport, VCAPH.
Only three times. Two of the wearers were nyc cabbies.
Looked great on paper. In reality, too green and grassy for me.
Wearing as much Bulgari green tea and white tea as I do, I expected to like gph 2. I think it's barely ok. The violet is the issue. Not a fan of violet. But, you know, I had to spend money to...
Another vote for Concentre d'Orange Verte. You can remain well within your comfort zone with that one. And another vote, a really enthusiastic vote, for Cartier Zeste de Soleil, though I wonder if...
Fendi Uomo, if the particular social circumstances one should find oneself in require dat you trow a beatin'.
No, it's just an accessory. But, go ahead, buy your gf a bottle of cheap perfume and let me know how it goes.
Who am I to say?
Two thumbs up.
I don't like opaque bottles. Even the ones you can actually see through with a back-lighting with an LED flashlight. Transparent or translucent bottles are much prettier.
I like cold-weather, rich, heavy, luxurious, opulent stuff much better than summer citrus, so I feel you, brosef. I mean, I love the Bulgari teas during the warmer weather, but outside of them I'm...
It's one of the names I don't layer. I think it's pretty much a work of art the way it is. And I like layering. Possibly, just possibly, I might try Molecule 01 with it.
I darn near broke an ankle jumping on this bandwagon. I...... admit it.
I don't know. It's possible I guess.
Well, the list of what I haven't tried is multiples of what I have tried. The reason? You can't kiss all the girls. So to speak. That's an old expression. It's like Chinese restaurants in nyc. ...
Next time smile and wink at the lady holding her nose.
Even though I posted recently that I don't buy decants, decants were in fact the way that I tip-toed into the attar group. So for all of you western hemisphere citizens who either own or are...
In my view, the contemporary version (as of about two years ago) is admirably faithful to the old version.
Factory packaging only, for me.
And I think that covers everything on the subject.
Somehow, I've never tried Kouros. I'm not really sure how that happened.
Right? Besides Hiro (now retired), this is the first youtube reviewer I've seen who seems like a real person and not some 28 year old virgin sitting under a bare lightbulb in his mom's basement...
Coromandel, followed by Eau de Cologne.
Amouage Rose TRO.
Bob's your uncle, there's the answer!
Blended in the hands of a master perfumer, I more and more feel like every note has a place somewhere. But I hate violet and tuberose most of the time. Just not all the time. Same with galbanum.
I agree. There are lots of gone-bad "vintage" bottles out there. It's not bordeaux we're talking about. I've tried a few "vintage" bottles and, with the exception of ouds, I'm not going to do it...
Borderline for me. It's the chocolate part of it that makes it risky. Now, understand, I really like Coromandel and I have a 200ml bottle of it. But I tend to wear it in safe environments. Before I...
Oh man, I love amber. Most amber. Etro Ambra, Cote Bastide Ambre, Dior Ambre Nuit are personal favorites.
Depends on the fragrance. I think it's good manners to use as little as possible. It depends on where you work. Show up at a government bond desk radiating volumes of Eau de Mammalian Groin, or Eau...
I'm going to be the contrarian (as usual?) and say that it doesn't sound like a great idea.
If fragrance is, in part, used as "relief" (imaginary relief) from an overabundance of whatever weather...
Very nice, thank you for posting. I love old ads.
Any chance that the hddlr wear & wardrobe data ever comes back?
Everything is "white shirt" for me because I wear one pretty much every day.
And, I'm going to start deliberately getting oud stains on the cuffs. It's going to be the next big style trend and...
Cartier Oud & Musc. Not a huge musk fan but this one I really like and it's easy to wear.
Read what remik said.
I get rid of them and then invariably look for them a few years later on Facebook.
Buy a bottle of Tobacco Oud.
Oh man, I love layering. Makes me feel like an artiste.
Spiritueuse Double Vanille + Tonka Imperiale. I like this so much that I rarely wear them separately anymore. I don't mix them. ...
Robert Piguet Notes. The guest who won't leave. Great for about an hour but the ultra-linear, utterly endless nature of this fragrance (for me) makes me afraid to actually spray some on.
Not knowing when your start date is........... who really knows what will endure? It's not just the juice but it's also how the brand is managed. There's also the idea that some things become so...
Cartier Santos, Halston Z-14.
Oakmoss is gross. Glad to see it go.
All I was really wondering was if Mr. DuPont is distantly related to Pierre Montale.
There are some paints and paint thinners, or the brass polish my doorman uses, that do something kind of similar to me so it's not out of the realm of possibility that it's an oversensitivity that...
How many times has this happened?
A guess would be some kind of social anxiety, though I'm not credentialed to say that.
Thank you, much obliged.
Does it say anywhere on the box or bottle where it's made?
Not a fan for some reason but I guess La Nuit.
When you ride alone, you have to sit tall in the saddle.
Also not in the mood to count, but ok, brb.
BG recently gave me a mini of Orange Sanguine and I'm saving it for summer weather. Smells nice out of the bottle. We'll see.
Cote Bastide Ambre. While keeping in mind the Robert Hunter lyrics "you ain't got half of what you thought you had", I think that my stash will last for quite some time. So no, and no.
This is how I look at it.
Prada Infusion d'Homme, which, I think, contains zero sentimentalism, Bulgari Black, and Bulgari Eau Parfumee au The Vert. Chandler Burr has a great article online about the last one. "Too...
Oh no, quite the opposite.
You're right, but only to the extent that humor appears to be lost on you.
The wikipedia article is marked as lacking verification, and none of those google hits are independently reported to journalistic standards.
No, my guess - and it's only a guess - is that the 1985...
This thread scares me. Can someone write something about the virtue of thrift.
Hermes Eau de Cologne. I can't think of two others.
edit: Now I see that I already posted here. Amouage Oud al Khalood. So that too.
I'm one of those pro-skunk people. It's the smell of the great outdoors.
