Thanks again for the new scent recos.
The last few weeks, I've used
Giorgio Beverly Hills for Men
Perry Ellis original cologne 1985
wow, you guys are fast.
Thanks for the recommendations.
Thanks. I'll try and test those 2 recommendations.
How about with this new look? Which scent will be good?
A couple of basenotes mates on FB said they couldn't recognize me with...
Goof pic with some friends.
I often make an effort to get away from the boyish, mr. nice guy vibe...
Haha. CK one. Why?
It's actually the only cologne my younger brother wants to use.
He HATES nearly all of my stuff.
How old is this bottle? I just got this a couple of days ago.
Oh I'm not sensitive to strong scents, I got Balenciaga PH, vintage Kouros, Aramis, Perry Ellis and stuff like that.
And the box that I saw was at Marshalls, earlier today. Not online.
A quick look at the back of the box, it says part of the ingredients are treemoss extract and oakmoss extract.
A lot of guys here say a lot of the reformulations are bad because they lost the...
I saw a few 1.7 oz bottles of GBH (yellow-white pin stripe box design) with product code of 5AA3 (checkcosmetic says it's batch January 2015)
Is it still a good fragrance for 9 bucks, or should I...
Thank you. I might check it out again. They also have a vintage Hermes Equipage in there, along with a couple dozen other fragrances.
34 US dollars for a 1.7 oz bottle. Not sure if vintage, but probably older stock (saw it in a little general store with a small fragrance section)
Would it be a good blind buy?
I saw an online deal for 3.4 oz Aqua Quorum for less than 10 US dollars.
Is it good enough for an inexpensive after work, going home cologne?
Thanks for the bump.
i don't think I'll layer vintage Kouros (1994). I rarely use it, and only use 1 spray when I do.
I'll make it last a long time.
whenever I read your posts, I keep thinking 1970s pro boxer Chuck Wepner is the one posting, even though I know you really aren't him.
Now with your avatar picture, my mind is sorta confused....
The projected 99 dollar PPV price and the confirmed 1,500 dollar nosebleed seat prices are ridiculous though. I know Pacquiao's gonna try to make it exciting, win or lose.
yeah, people don't...
So SportsFan, speaking of ESPN highlights..
did you see ESPN's Maywether-Pacquiao press con coverage yesterday? Excited for the fight or not?
Where I live, it's rare...
Nenuco EDC maybe.
I started out with a 30 ml bottle of Aspen, Brut Classic (medallion), Brut aftershave splash and 3 local cheapo EDCs (Johnson's baby cologne level) and I thought I was the cologne king of the house,...
I think it's just Sung.
Maybe for female?
Not Sung Homme.
I see it at Marshalls.
Or as of early 2015, cheapskates. :happy:
A couple dozen bottles were available on a New Jersey Century21 store for 19.99 dollars, this past holiday season.
I don't get it.
Just keep the original bottle, buy a 15 ml glass spray bottle atomiser and carry it in your bag, everywhere you go.
Re-fill when needed.
Azzaro PH: Macho man with unwashed arse
Kouros vintage: haunted spirit
Aspen: Strong, cheap deodorant
Eau Sauvage vintage: Old, musty wooden closet
What is the projection and longevity of Clubman?
If I were using Clubman as an aftershave, applied lightly, which of these following EDTs would it compliment?
If the ingredients list has Oakmoss and treemoss written on it, it should smell and last almost as well as the original formulation.
The newest ones doesnt have it on the list, I heard.
75ml kiton men at Century 21
Go get it.
Thanks. I was guessing this one's pre-1990 or something. Bought this along with Eau Sauvage with 117ml printed on the box, from an antique dealer.
This one's strong. I dabbed both...
Anybody know what year Aramis last used this box and bottle design?
She got a bottle of Givenchy Dahlia Divin today.
Thanks for the tips, everyone. She'll go and pick one today. I'll accompany her.
Always kept them in boxes.
I want to protect them, and avoid sunlight and heat.
After spraying, I put it back immediately in the box.
let's just make this an "ask hednic" thread.
I just got a Balenciaga PH, 1 oz, for 25 bucks. I like it a lot.
Now, I suddenly discover another Balenciaga bottle, 3.4 oz, for less...
Merry christmas from the Philippines
From Bulakenyo and Chocknut
My mother is saying she would like to look for perfume for her this holiday season. But I know that retail prices are expensive, and you can find better deals online or at Marshalls/TJ Maxx, etc. I...
OK. Thanks. Might get it today.
25 US dollars for a 30 ml bottle a good deal?
The guys at FX must be thinking "WTF?" this last 48 hours.
that's a quote from the movie, "anchorman".
One of the main characters loves strong colognes, and his secret weapon panty dropper is "sex pamther".
Everybody in hisoffice hates it, and one of the...
Great thread. More please.
They're both dirt cheap, they don't smell aquatic and they have an old school feel.
Some people would say these scents smell more expensive than its selling price.
Which one have you tried, and...
Century21 has it on sale.
24 US dollars for 1.7 oz. plus tax.
Elizabeth Taylor Passion for men
Kiton men (back up)
Thanks. I probably will.
I found a small shop selling a 1.7 oz bottle for 15 US dollars, but no bottle to sample it.
Good blind buy, you guys?
Marshalls New Jersey
2 oz Elizabeth Taylor Passion for men for 8 dollars
4 oz Grey Flannel for 13 dollars.
They have a lot of bottles on stock, at least 20.
also Joop homme 4 oz at 29 dollars, lacoste original at 29 dollars, etc.
2.5 oz Kiton Men for 24 US dollars at Century 21.
just be polite. They're Just doing their best to reach their sales quotas.
The probability of getting a sale from a potential customer who's on the fence gets higher if you try and sales talk them...
Thanks, Rex and Scott.
I saw a 1 oz bottle of Drakkar Noir for 16 dollars at Marshalls.
I've never had DN before. Good deal or pass?
I saw a Boucheron pour homme bottle at Nordstroms last week for 30 or 40ish...
I have a buddy who can get me Kiton 2.5 oz for under 30 US dollars, also Lacoste original, Aramis Tuscany and Joop Homme 125ml for the same price.
Which one should I get, in order of importance?
Thanks, also, MegaMav.
How many sprays do you need for Kiton Men?
34 years old.
Thanks, guys. I may go for it this week.
I saw a full bottle of Kiton Men, in red box, for less than 30 US dollars.
Is Kiton any good? Should I get it ASAP or not?
i was thinking it was more for conserving the original formulation's contents. By usinh the modern juice, but still has the full aroma of the original.
I have a 1994 vintage 50 ml Kouros, and I kinda like it. I use sparingly.
If I bought current version of Kouros, use it, and layer 1 spray of vintage, as amplifier, do you guys think it would work...
First ones I ever tried.. Jovan Musk and Paco Rabanne. My dad's.
First one I owned.. and Drakkar Noir copycat (even bottle design) named Black Knight.
First one I bought.. Aspen
I have the vintage aftershave splash. I decanted it to a 10 ml spray, and the rest, I just stored the big bottle with my other vintage colognes.
It's good. But strong. 2 big sprays and it knocks...
Not really big time classics, but I kinda miss these guys. I either gave them away as gifts, or sold them to friends for almost nothing.
Adidas Sport Field
Vintage Eau Sauvage
Paris Hilton For...
I have a 1993 Kouros spray, and it's probably the strongest cologne I own. It even beats my vintage Aramis in terms of sillage.
Sorry for the thread bump..
but when you guys say warm weather, how warm is it actually?
Out here in the tropics, we can get to the 37+ centigrade levels during summer.
Would that be "too...
I wish they had a sealed box of it available, still. I bought my Vintage Kouros there, and I know light wouldnt have affected that bottle even it was out of it's box often, because the...
How about vintage fragrances that have been stored in a controlled temperature environment, but is out of the box, on display?
Like a vintage Givenchy Insense bottle I saw in a shopping mall...
Thanks, hednic, fragrance123, easyfish.
It is the original, oval-ish bottle version. The same place where I bought my vintage Kouros 50 ml.
Thanks, will go back there, soon.
I found a vintage bottle for sale, full size with the box, unsealed, for around 16 US dollars.
Is it a good deal? They also have vintage Jacomo de Jacomo, same price.
Which one should I get,...
What movie is that from? And they are supposed to be which cologne?
Paco Rabanne PH
Rive Gauche PH
were people or fictional characters, who would they be?
Honest to God, I didnt know who this way off scenter dude was, but reading those new reviews, and a lot of them, in a short time span, i was thinking, "this noob's pretty excellent."
Yes, I do. It is still the ParfumsCorp era box. "1.6 fl. oz" on bottom left side, "e 50 ml" on the right. YSL name on the bottom.
Alcohol, Fragrance, Water" on the side.
Good day, Mr. Moreau.
I have a Kouros 50 ml spray, Parfumscorp marking at the bottom, with 41651 code at the back of the bottle.
Is this from 1994, or am I mistaken?
Your blog said that...
Congrats for the find.
i live in the philippines, and i'm not a big fraghead like most people here (in the real world though, people are surprised why I got more than 20 bottles of cologne)
Not really a steal, i didnt buy it. But I recently got a 1996 Antonio Puig Quorum, 50 ml splash for free.
70% still remaining inside.
It was my deceased grandfather's. my grandmother died...
I have Silver, and I think it's nice.
My next purchase from them would probably be Choco Musk, Dakar (drakkar noir clone) and Full (philippine sampaguita jasmine smell)
I had to get the Aventus, Too expensive to buy. Cheaper to steal.
The newest version (not sure if embossed of stickered) has no more oakmoss and I think treemoss on the ingreedients list (read post number 11 here by Luca)
and the one I have, an embossed version...
How would you rank the embossed bottle version of ApH? In terms of overall performance?
If vintage ApH Intense is 10.0, and the 2013 version without oakmoss is 5.0?
I quite like the version I...
So, the most current release has reverted to the black and white stickers? But is now the weakest version?
I have this.
Embossed glass. No sticker.
Has both oak moss and tree moss in the ingredients list.
Serial number is...
maybe the SAs are trying to be nice and keeping guys from embarrassing yourself when you unwittingly wear a female fragrance.
Maybe their conscience could not take not speaking out and warning a...
They got a100 or 120 ml bottle too, costs about 40 something dollars.
Same price points for the medium and full size Escada pour homme Edts.
I swear if I already didnt have 20...
Thegeneral population isnt that much into fragrances.
And if they do, it' mostly well known designer brands and aquatic, citrusy, fresh stuff.
athey dont really love super heavy scents. Maybe...
Haha, thanks for the replies. Funny and interesting posts.
To Ronin, I'm in the Philippines.
I'm still thinking about buying at least one bottle from the lot of bottles.
By the way, the...
