Lots of great suggestions. Thanks to all.
As the title infers, I am looking for a masculine or unisex rose scent with juicy green stems, soil and all. Any suggestions.
Has there been any consensus as to whether or not TF AA has been tweaked at all?
Break out the one-and-only (original formulation, please) Burberry London.
Oh God, your gonna have to expand on that one...Portuguese Barbershop? Similar to Spanish?
I'll give that one a try. I saw a sample on eBay. Thank you.
I've been on a real barbershop kick of late. I am looking for something very traditional and classic (Rive Gauche, Pinaud Clubman, Truefitt and Hill Grafton) ....BUT with a twist. Any suggestions? I...
What Mike said^^
Dark Saphir by Agonist.
Cosmair is not 'one-of-a-kind' - the Warner/Lauren release is the real vintage rich stuff. There is a 5 ml bottle here. I'd grab it if you want to experience the...
I just hope there is a bit more of a variation on the oud theme.
There are so many great ones as noted. The one that has captured my heart more than all the rest is 2014's L`incendiaire.
Thet are available here...
Any suggestions as to where to start with the NISHANE ISTANBUL line?
I have Amouage Journey. Very different zeitgeist from Rien Intense. Perhaps I should have stated that I am looking for something much darker.
I was searching for the subject heading and hoped I had found it in Rien Intense Incense Etat Libre d`Orange. I got my sample today and was disappointed - not in the scent as it is a beautiful...
1) The initial Givenchy distribution had the name MICHAEL on the bottle. This was the fullest, richest gorgeous juice.
2) The first wave of distribution transition from Givenchy to Estee Lauder had...
I am also really diggin' Ermenegildo Zegna Essenze Italian Bergamot as well.
Are we talking about the newer "squat" bottle found here?
Really looking froward to this.
I am trying to determine a bottle of A*men is the older formulation. Are there any clues based upon the box/packaging?
A follow up... if the box is the baby blue color and it says Angel Men and...
Looking for a 10 ml decant of Vintage (pre-reformulation) A*men. Please PM me.
I should have bought A*men before it was reformulated. Does anyone know if a the 30ml metal flask would be pre-reformulation?
LOTS of patchouli. The most recent formulation is less about arabica and more about chocolate. Pass.
One of the worst reformulations I have ever had to deal with. The older Polo Blue (c. 2002) was a much more natural smelling watery cucumber. The version that is presently out is a horrible...
Back to Black. Incense Oud and Smoke for the Soul as a novelty.
There's only one ;') ... Jaipur (EDT or EDP) by Boucheron.
Any suggestions as where to start with this Italian Line?
I feel it's very dated. One of the few Creed's I was meh, about.
I just received my bottle and although the juice smells good it seems very weak, watered down? anyone here have this juice?
I now know your not a big fan of the CK Summer Flankers ;')
How might I know this?
I just got done reading two dozen threads ;')
The general consensus is that for CK ONE SUMMER - 2008 is the pick year.
Is there a similar consensus with CK ETERNITY SUMMER?
Is that not, an oxymoron ;')
Incense Oud on me is a gorgeous skin scent on me. Amber Oud was too synthetic and vanilla more than amber. Musk Oud is lovely. Pure Oud is nice - just not my taste.
Thank you, Hednic.
Where to purchase as this is no longer available at Luckyscent.
If, by rainy day you mean melancholy ...Nicolaï Pour Homme by Nicolai Parfumeur.
Apply for a job with Bond No.9 New York ;')
Here it is...http://www.basenotes.net/threads/308190-CHANEL-quot-BOIS-NOIR-quot-on-eBay-Auction-starts-at-849-USD

Please correct me if I'm wrong but didn't a bottle of Chanel Bois Noir recently go for about $600.00?
Serge Noir by Serge Lutens.
Yes. It is the second generation. A very good juice. I have that bottle as well as the same year generation EDP (which is utterly amazing)
Perhaps a flirtation. Marriage, hmm - that would be my new love Heeley's Vetiver Veritas. ;')
Mine finally arrived the other day. It's nice and very close to how you described but it clearly reflects it's price. Somewhat synthetic, somewhat stereotypic designer in feel and no real...
I am. As a matter of fact I have tickets to the Celtic's game tonight and will stop in at Barney's before the game.
Where can this be purchased as the Barney's link brings a 404 message. The only place I have seen them is on eBay. I'm caving to the price as I really like L`incendiaire.
Can you be more articulate, specific?
It's a novelty and I must be careful where and when I don it, but I find Smoke for the Soul quite fun to wear.
Has anybody sampled?
Cartier has neither smoke nor leather.
Plum, prune, apricot.
Sold. I love and own them both.
I have a good two dozen vetiver centric frags. This would be a blind buty for me. Can anyone tell me what other vetiver it resembles?
Looking for a fragrance with Dried, dark fruits in the vein of L`incendiaire bySerge Lutens. Any suggestions?
Yup. Just what Bokaba said ^^^. Very light and uplifting,
Yes, it does. I have Serge Noir. They're different. I don't get the dark dried fruits nearly as much in Serge Noir.
Just got a sample of L`incendiaire Serge Lutens and I love it. What I don't love is the price. Anything even remotely similar? I get dark dried fruits, oud, incense, tar, resins.
What you're looking for is L`Artisan Parfumeur Vetiver from 1978.
I get no chocolate, cocoa or the like in Uomo, let alone a sickly chocolate.
Hmmm. Okay. Thanks.
Is Uomo Noir Edition the same juice as Valentino Uomo or has it been tweaked. There seems to be a lot of conflicting opinions.
I've been doing some reading and it seems the original crystal bottle was perceived as feminine - hence the change.
Has there been a definite answer as to whether this is the same juice as Valentino Uomo or is it different?
Hmmm. Okay, I'll keep researching.
Any idea which of these boxes contains the 1994 juice?
Thank you so much.
Does any fellow Basenoter know what the original 1994 GAP Grass bottle looks like?
Thank you. When I said more oomph, I was referring the subtleness of L'Eau de l'Artisan. It's really a polite skin scent.
I am looking for something very similar to L'Eau de l'Artisan but with a little more oomph. Any suggestions will be appreciated.
Has anyone tried this yet?
Gendarme Green is the closest I have come to the smell of Irish Spring soap. On another note, Castile by Penhaligon is the closest I have come to the smell of Ivory soap.
I believe it's just a unique tester bottle.
Just got my bottle from Scentmonkey for $85 with coupon.
Could not agree more. Dior Homme Intense, I love. Dior Homme never felt right to me. But The Parfum. Oh, my! Here, the toned down iris, the toned up patchouli, musk and leather all make for a dark,...
Any suggestions as where to start for a masculine in the SoOud line?
I am going to guess. Amber.
Does anyone now which one of these is older?
Let us not forget the ever elusive Halston 101.
Thank you. I will begin my search.
Couldn't agree more. I'd also add Heeleys new Vetiver Veritas.
I'd like to try some classic Arabian perfumes but have no idea where to begin? Any suggestions?
I have to agree. This has quickly become one of my favorite vetivers. IMO,this is very similar in "tone" to L'artisan Vetiver (from 1978) not Coeur de Vétiver Sacré. It is now on sale for $130.00 at...
Yep, sniffed it the other day and it's been eviscerated ;'( Gonna check eBay for an older bottle.
My four (s)cents...Dark Aoud, Black Musk, Aoud and Pine and Moon Aoud.
Yes, saw it on the eBay listing.
Hmmm, just found this...
