Original oud is nice. The others (extraits) don't wow me enough to justify the price jump.

Original oud is nice. The others (extraits) don't wow me enough to justify the price jump.
Having never tried the original and desperately wanting to...I think I may drop a tear or 2.
If you want to sell a ml or 2 of the original let me know please.
Can I ask where this afrikan elephant might be available? I'm already salivating.
I offered decants of vintage 1981 and 1992 kouros and I had 2 types of response. Those afraid to try it and those that thought I should sell it for $1 per ml. Seriously? I'm not trying to make a...
It's a masterpiece. That sells for top dollar. That many people feel is quite a spectacular scent.
Nobody is begging you to wear it.
Feel free to send me your bottle, I'm glad to trade you a...
It's simply just not that good.
Due to my personal experience with them and nothing to do with what is mentioned here, although similar NEVER AGAIN
I still own the 1981 version. It hasn't lost any oomph that is for sure. I own more of it than any other frag. Fabulous stuff. They don't make them like that anymore
I would start with vintage and go forward just as I did. To see where things are its helpful to see where they came from.
1981 Chanel Antaeus. I had at one point about 850ml running low at give or take 300 now.
I have 1 bottle of 1988 EDC and it is truly special. A true vetiver. Nothing light about it. The current EdT doesn't compare.
Givenchy Insense. The original version
Good heavens...talk about a scent grabbing a man by the neck, or by another body part. Had to have 2 bottles right that damn minute.
No way man. That stuff is as rare as unicorn tears. I've heard 1 drop can cure cancer.
I only smell it right before the headache starts.
The only thing that comes to mind is Kouros Fraicheur. An absolute Masterpiece and expensive which can be hard to find. The name might lead one to think it is fresh in a "light" or airy way. This is...
You've already decided quite rapidly what you choose to dismiss. Leather oud to many here is legendary. Oud ispahan I would hold in the same regard. Ambre nuit worn by my lady friend makes my knees...
My advice...go for the parfum corps bottles. 1000x easier to find than the Charles of Ritz version and about 95% as good. In fact that's what I wear 99% of the time. The OG Charles is too rare to...
The vintage is a masterpiece. I have an extra partial bottle that will go up on the block soon ...
For those looking to get a great bottle of MI without dropping a lot of cash...get in on a split from MJONES on the splits board here. He only to my knowledge splits the 13X01 which is a fantastic...
I guess vintage M7. Bought several more bottles after that first one, you know...just to be safe
Isn't that the belief of a twin out there somewhere?
Well since we are a fragrance bunch here I thought why not put a twist on something that I'm sure has been brought up before.....fragrances with...
Wasn't me that bought it either, im already bathing in 81 kouros and 81 antaeus.
I bought Givenchy Insense. Nice stuff.
I'm no scientist but is that accurate? The weight of the bottle would factor in no?
Regardless if it's a bottle like Antaeus...put a flashlight up against the bottle and turn it on.
Don't you just hate when your booties aren't stored correctly? Talk about a bad day...
Vintage egoiste no question
Sauvage EDT....would be my choice.
But what do I know I'm just an olé fart ..42
Givenchy Insense original release
Willing to pay within reason or trade for it
I have plenty of vintage stuff to trade.
Kouros,antaeus, m7, polo green, ungaro2, egoiste,envy, our ispahan, smaltoPH,
All vintage releases. At least 3 bottlesof each
Balenciaga Ho Hang Club
And a measly 15bux for 50ml ebay
My significant other absolutely loves this on me. It shares the top shelf from privee line for me along with leather oud and oud ispahan. Very very nice frag. Nothing feminine about it to me,...
It's alright. Nothing spectacular. Safe and gets occasional compliments. My 14yr old daughter enjoys it much more than I do.....and stole my bottle. As a powerhouse frag lover I'm glad she took it...
Haven't tried fuyro yet and yes balenciaga PH is very high quality. A touch high on the incense for me but very good nonetheless. Glad others share the appreciation for ho hang club!
I won't bore you with note pyramids and all that blah blah..
I am seriously blown away at how nice this stuff smells and for the super cheap price for 50ml you CANT go wrong. Just buy it...or don't,...
On the hot days I reach for Creed MI or Tom Ford Grey Vetiver.
Fell free to substitute "monster truck comp.....knitting conventions.....multi cellular organism think tanks..." in place of the word bars in my statement. We all have different watering holes, no...
Tell a friend you are going to go grab a drink with...to wear one of yours just for a laugh and spray something good on him. Go to a bar. Slip a few bucks to an attractive bartender and ask him/ her...
Kouros 1981 vintage
Antaeus 1981 vintage

Wearing Kouros Fraicheur as a warm up for the big day. Or course I've worn 1981 Kouros at least 10 times in the last month so I'm looking forward to another fabulous day. About 4 hours after...
Saying Kouros smells bad( I think it's a masterpiece) will be just as relevant as my opinion that DHI smells beyond horrible. There is no consensus on anything.
We might as well decide what form of...
It is actually..something quite special.
I use my bottle very sparingly.
I wear it all. Leather oud. MFK APLS. Vintage Kouros.
No worries or hesitation . Office work.
Vanilla bombs are more offensive I think.
A true masterpiece but only in its vintage form. Glad I have 4 bottles . Just like other classics, the reforms lack something. But hey that's just me, think and wear what suits you.
1981 Chanel Antaeus.
2 more vintage 1981 kouros. Another vintage vermeil. Another 2 kouros fracheiur. 2 more vintage Egoiste.
Vintage Antaeus . No equal.
It may just be my eyes but after looking at my bottle which is vintage from the seller that Bigs pointed us to , and several stock photos I think I may have noticed another difference. Again it may...
Vintage only for these.
Egoiste. Antaeus. Kouros. Polo.
Ambre nuit. The other just doesn't do it for me
Bizarre. ...another lot of beat up and in my case BEAT UP bottles...With perfect vintage juice. Grab one fellas.
Yes I was talking about Davidoff classic 1984. They have some similar notes, some...
Vintage K is my # 1 or 2 depending on day or mood.
You won't find BK anywhere in my collection. GHASTLY BAD
V Versace L'homme
Muscs Koublai Khan
I'm always willing to assist as long as I don't lose a dime. Shipping...PayPal fees etc.
Buy them people...buy them. The initial blast quickly calms into something very nice and to my nose not dated like some might say Davidoff smells.
Just got my bottle and put my nose to the sprayer. Wow this is a game changer! To put it simply this fragrance is David off classic's evil twin brother. Extremely similar but darker and deeper. They...
Itching to get my hands on my bottle...hurry up usps!
The vintage and 1st reform are both wonderful to me. I use a lot of reform and save the original for certain occasions.
I grabbed the $10 vintage Vermeil that Bigsly pointed out and also these 3 beauties. ALL VINTAGE. I've got a decent stock of these now so if someone wants some all brown 4 ingredient M7 or vintage...
Bought one..what the heck why not. Esp if it's vintage. Thanks bigs.
Own several bottles of each in their vintage formulations. I could never choose between them.
If anyone wants a decant of authentic 1981 chanel antaeus..see link below...no crazy price I promise.
If you think today's "antaeus" is the same...well ....we shall agree to gravely disagree.
Kouros Fraicheur. Nuff said.
60ml of MI if it is the hallowed 13X01 please!
Toss up between
Your used unwanted bottle. Any size.
Kouros fraicheur on a warm evening.
For the best try chanel 31 Rue Cambon
Kouros. Regardless of your exclusion
Go grab some root beer barrel candies. Tell be that it's not the exact same smell. Great candy. Terrible fragrance.
Love no.19 . Not sure if I want to wear it but I do love smelling it
I own several bottles the newest being made in 1992. Yes thr newest. I've smelled the white shoulder bottles and to my nose they simply don't compare to the Paris and Parfumcorp versions.
I have a vintage bottle and adore it. It smells equally intoxicating on me or my lady friend. Vintage is much deeper and richer than the current egoiste. Night and day. Wear it anywhere, it's...
I could have a mouse in a bottle and not know it. Never looked close enough. I have much bigger concerns in my life than a single hair somewhere it shouldn't be. Do what you want about it, I...
Agreed....if masculine does not include classic by your definition then I will decline to answer the question as it makes little sense
Cytherian - 2nd gen Versace l homme. Always loved the 1st
Andre M- Ettore Bugatti. Amazing....
there's plenty more that escape my feeble brain right now
Wonderful amazing stuff. Not femm at all. Well I take that back . Not fem on me, but smells even better on my lady, she stole my bottle and won't give it back! No problem there as I love when she...
80s? Early 90s? Just an estimate
Dior Cuir cannage or however you spell it. My 85 yr old grandma might think this smells too femm. I swear. Wretch.
Same here...long live the king....today's stuff is a shadow of its former glory.
It's a freaking masterpiece.
The #1 for me
Pure perfection. I'm speaking of the vintage version, 2 sprays and after 20min or so. Like many powerhouse scents it needs a little time to calm down or breathe if you will. For those that think it...
The original 4 ingredient in all brown glass is miles ahead of the next release with clear glass and brown stickers on 2 sides. That one is good but not the same . I'm parting with my all brown...
I have a code of HK1 that is on a 1000ml bottle. Let me know if you need a photo Andre
Absolue pour le Soir is top shelf. The rest..ehhh.
Congrats. Excellent purchase. You are in fact an awesome human being. Revel in that . Kouros is king.
Ungaro 2 . Flawless...
I agree 100% and I've sold numerous GPH1 bottles and wouldn't think of selling one of my numerous bottles of vintage M7.
The actual magic of kouros comes about 30 min after application. It has to settle . Then it's heavenly.
Several Paris and parfumcorp Kouros and a partially full 1000ml jug of vintage Antaeus
As much as I love vintage Kouros and since I already have several Paris and parfumcorp bottles, spending 200 for the leather wrapped bottle was something I contemplated but didn't do. I love kouros...
There's no question large bottles are visually awesome. I will always hold onto my 1000ml of vintage Chanel Antaeus even after every last drop has been inhaled deeply.
About 7. Realistically 4 too many
