I have both Set Sail St Barts and VIW and for me they smell very different from each other. I blind bought St Barts as a substitute for VIW because I didn't want to spend that kind of money for VIW....
I have purchased a lot from online retailers and only had one issue one time which was corrected immediately.
I would not pay full retail for an expensive fragrance that I cold buy at half the...
I have it as well and it's unisex imo. It's a very good fragrance.
Cartier Declaration for me.
If niche, I'd say Aventus.
I bought a Prada Luna Rossa Extreme gift set which includes the 3.4 oz bottles of the edp and the aftershave balm.
I was married in 1988 and took Nino Cerruti Cerruti for men and I still have over 1/2 of a bottle left.
Virgin Island Water
As a CFO who has interviewed many, I would strongly suggest not wearing any fragrance to an interview. Be neutral with your essence. As an iinterviewer, I want to know what you know, not what you...
Same here. Now it's one of my favorites. It really is a very nice fragrance.
Acqua Di Parma Colonia Leather
Creed Virgin Island Water.....
I sampled this at the Scent Bar in Los Angeles a few months ago and I was surprised how much I really enjoyed VIW and how long it lasted on my skin.
This thread has inspired me to buy a bottle of...
Atelier Rose Anonyme is a beautiful rose based fragrance.
ADP Colonia Leather.
I spray my front seat seatbelt chest straps with Aventus. It lasts for weeks and really does smell nice as I catch a whiff every so often.
Either Aventus which I have on right now at work, or Acqua Di Parma Colonia Leather. Maybe both.
+2 for ADP Colonia Leather.
In fact, I just bought a supposedly new unopened 100ml bottle yesterday on Ebay for $140. We'll see what I end up with.
When I was around 8 yo in the late 60s my dad had Jade East and that's when I got hooked on fragrances. From there it was on to Avon Collectibles which was filled with their Wild Country fragrance.
I don't keep a fragrance in my car per se but I do spray the driver's side seat belt shoulder strap (where it rests around my chest) with Aventus every few weeks or so. A couple sprays will last...
I started a similar "Best Rose for Men" thread a couple years ago and with all the great suggestions, and a fantastically generous offering of many rose fragrance samples sent to me from fellow...
Is anyone going to do a split on this?
Thanks for posting the discount info, TNB. :thumbsup:
I just tried to order CDG Wonderwood from them. The FALLSALE code wouldn't take. I called them and they said there are certain brands that are not part of the discount. When I asked if they had a...
I have layered two Creeds today; Original Vetiver and Millesime Imperial. To me this is a very nice combination.
I think I'll wait for it to show up at one of the discounters. If it does, then I'll probably buy it.
If you go through Ebates website to shop at Fragrancenet, you'll get an additional 6% discount on top of Fragrancenet's usual 20%.
I recently purchased Memoir Man from them which I really like a...
Among the ones already mentioned, I think Creed Original Vetiver is one that will work anytime any place.
Also, Boucheron Pour Homme EDP is very nice.
This is what my bottle that I've had for several years looks like. The EDP version is one of my favorite fragrances.
+1 for the Jo Malone scents. Many of them are very nice and on the lighter side.
Jovan Musk for me. I have always loved this fragrance and still do.
I think you can buy it at your local drug store for around $16 for 5000ml. :bath:
I'll wear fragrances for a couple reasons.
One reason is that some fragrances remind me of things. What I mean is they bring back fond memories of something.
For example, one of the...
My first Amouage, and the only Amouage I really like.
Memoir Man, from Fragrancenet. A 3.4 ounce bottle for $139 after rebates.
Creed's Bois Du Portugal is like this for me. One spray - maybe one and a half - on the back of the neck is perfect for me to smell all the great notes that are in this. Any more than that then some...
I've purchased a lot from Fragrancenet. No Amouage though. Many Creeds. All were fine. A great place to shop imo.
Creed Green Irish Tweed
The first time I tried this at the Scent Bar I really liked it. I did catch that weird sea odor of something that I thought might be seaweed in it, but I was so impressed with how much a fragrance...
I always use to shop for fragrances and buy them for me or my wife at places like Nordstrom, Macys, Sephora, etc..
Then I came here to BN and was wised up. Most of the stuff I bought could easily...
A blind buy of Tommy Bahama Set Sail St. Barts for $22.
I put this on for the first time this morning and six hours later this stuff still smells great and is projecting very nicely. For just...
Last year $580 for a 500ml flacon of Creed Aventus from Creed Boutique.
I've been wanting a nice leather fragrance. I definitely want to sample it.
I noticed that they have this one in a 6oz bottle at Nordstrom for $265. The 3.3oz at Neiman's is $210.
Rose Anonyme by Atelier is my favorite. Le Labo 31 is my second favorite.
Actuer by Azzaro is my third and is a fantastic rose plus it's not expensive.
Same here. AND that next day dry down smells very nice as well.
Atelier Gold Leather
BdP, which I happen to be wearing as my sotd today.
Prada Infusion De Vetiver
Still testing Phaedon Tabac Rouge and still enjoying it.
I'm wearing it as I type this. It really is a fantastic scent that's so much like tv that it's hard for me to tell the difference untill the complete dry down. Then TR at that point is less sweet...
What's the best batch number?
Tam Dao EDP.
I have both the EDP and EDT now. Both are very very nice.
I sampled both Tom Ford TV and Phaedon Tabac Rouge yesterday at the Scent Bar here in Los Angeles. I sprayed TV on my right hand and TR on my left. To me they smelled almost identical. In fact, I had...
You're right. They no longer put the expiration date on the bottle. Instead, here in Los Angeles Le Labo, now they put the date that they mixed the fragrance on the bottle and then tell you verbally...
Some say TF Tobacco Vanille and Phaedon Tabac Rouge are almost identical. Some like TR better than TV and it's quite a bit cheaper. I haven't smelled TR but I have it on order.
How about Le Labo? Even comes with an expiration date so you know when to throw away your half-empty bottle.
Thanks, Hednic. It's a blind buy for me inspired by the great reviews it has gotten and some Basenoters' comparison of it to Tobacco Vanille(which I have tried one time and really like). I'm looking...
I placed an order for this from the Scent Bar in Los Angeles which is down the street from my office. It won't be in for a couple weeks. They'll call me when it arrives.
I just semi-blind bought this one today. I think I sprayed some OV on my wrist while I was at The scent Bar here in Los Angeles about a year ago and really liked it. I 'm not sure though because I...
Aventus for me too, with GIT in second place and MI in third.
I also own BdP which I like a lot BUT I think it's more of a special night-out-on-the-town occasional scent for me. I wore it to work...
I was one of the lucky ones to get a 100ml Tam Dao from Hautelook yesterday for $60. I was wearing some today from a sample I had of it and glad it was 1/2 off. I don't think I'd pay full price for...
I enjoy Aventus immensely, and other than HdP 1828, it is the most complimented fragrance I own.
1) HdP 1828
3) Montale Red Vetyver
5) Atelier Vetiver Fatal
It will be fine. My split that I bought from a BNer a few months ago sat in customs for a week or more and was finally released. It was sent from Taiwan.
Atelier Rose Anonyme. Beautiful rosé fragrance.
Michael Kors For Men
Le Labo Rose 31
I blind bought a bottle of SWW last week and returned it two days later. The scent projected less than 45 minutes on me with several sprays plus sprayed on my shirts. After 90 min, it was completely...
For me it's Histoires 1889 Moulin Rouge.
I love both GIT and Aventus. On my skin, the longevity and silage of both are terrific and I think they both smell great.
I wish I could say the same about most Amouage scents. I can find only one...
It's a terrific scent. It's on my want list.
I'm still up in the air about my Histoires 1889 Moulin Rouge purchase. I bought the 4 oz bottle and split it with a co-worker.
I really like the fragrance when I first put it on and even more so...
Another for Acteur. It's an excellent masculine rose for a good price.
If you would have ordered Aventus instead, none of this would've happened.
It depends on how they were going to execute me.
I'd wear Fat Electrician by Etat Libre d`Orange if I was going to the electric chair,
Velvet Rope by Apothia if I were to be hanged,
I just ordered two bottles of GIT from Beauty Encounter and all went very well. The only problem is I live in Southern California where BE is located and as a result, I have to pay sales tax. Evenso,...
I purchased 120ml Histoires de Parfumes Jules Verne (1828) today.
I don't know about Aventus getting you drunk, but I do know that it adds a nice flavor to steaks if you marinade them in it.
3 Tablespoons olive oil,
I just bought Michael Kors blind. I love it.
I wanted a tobacco scent so I went cheap and got me Michael Kors for Men and it arrived today.
It's much nicer than I thought it would be.
Atelier Rose Anonyme
Both are fantastic smelling fragrances.
Oh, and I do like the one with the Royal Pineapple in it as well.
I present to the community of Basenotes and all it's members - the Royal Pineapple.
It smells divine. But don't look at it for very long. :smiley:
I don't understand why some of the member's here are trying to classify someone who buys Creeds as an amateur whose first step in the evolution of collecting "high-end" fragrances has fallen into a...
Type BENEW in the coupon code box during check out. You'll get a $15 credit against the total. You will see it as soon as you type it and click APPLY.
I went through the rose fragrance search and ended up with Atelier Rose Anonyme which is fantastic smelling as well as longevity of 12+ hours on me and projection that is fantastic.
And I also...
Well, with my one GIT bottle in hand(and another one on the way), AND my two 50ml splits of Aventus purchased through BN, I'm ready for some good smellin' and good lovin'. :vrolijk_1:
Same here. An excellent liquid it is.
I'm sort of new to this sort of high end fragrance stuff. My fragrances had always been designer EDTs and EDPs. I think Hermes products were the most expensive thing I owned.
Very recently, and...
There's something peculiar about the middle bottle. I can't quite put my finger on it. :smiley:
I put the A02 batch on yesterday after receiving it from Beauty Encounter. At around 11am, I applied three small half sprays to my right arm and two full sprays to my neck.
I was able to get nice...
I just ordered a bottle from Beauty Encounter. I sampled GIT only once at the Scent Bar and really liked it. I'll let you all know what I end up with when I get it.

Lately, I've noticed that my skin seems to eat up fragrances more than usual. Maybe because I'm exercising more leaving me somewhat dehydrated more than usual.
This Rose Anonyme, as well as other...
Atelier Rose Anonyme.
Cartier Declaration Essence
Boucheron Pour Homme EDP
What a conicidence. I was wearing Heeley's Agarwood yesterday and as I was getting ready to order my bottle of Rose Anonyme I decided to put a dab of Anonyme on my wrist from a sample I had in my...
