The Different Company
Are you speaking of traditionally women's fragrances that would be suitable for a man to wear?
Has anyone tried this yet? Island Hawaii is one of my all-time favorites. And yes, I'm a guy and actually I find it very unisex, but this comes from a guy who has no problem wearing D&G Light Blue...
Au The Blanc
Comme des Garcons Odeur 53
For me, this was one doozie of a scrubber!
Thanks guys! Hopefully I'll be able to get out today and try it out. I like most white florals, tuberose and neroli included.
I absolutely love gardenia. The smell is very intoxicating. I work for a nursery and I'm constantly stopping by the gardenias to cop a whiff. Unfortunately, I have no yard anymore. I gave it up...
I like wearing Kingdom during hot weather as well, but mikeperez23 hit the nail on the head--go lightly. I also really love to wear MKK during the hot steamy months. And that's another one to go...
The label design on Bleecker Street is indeed a sticker. I think it was probably far too complex of a design to actually be incorporated into a bottle. The label on my bottle is very well done. ...
I don't really categorize fragrances anymore. If I like it, I'll wear it. That really started happening for me when I discovered niche fragrances. Putting fragrances into distinctly masculine or...
I stopped by Saks this past Saturday to see my buddy at the Bond counter--who happened to jump ship over to Prada at Neiman Marcus--hoping to get some info. My fave Bond rep however was working the...
Has anyone gotten wind of upcoming fragrances from Bond No. 9? Any non-Warhol inspired stuff?
It was rumored for a while last year that Astor Place, Sutton Place and Brooklyn were all in the...
Bond No. 9
I hit my Dzing! sample and second AND third time and I don't know what to do! I kinda like it....but is it a fragrance? Literally speaking it is.....but jeez, do I buy it? I sorta feel like I have...
I can already guess what the comment would be on SMW: Screechy.
I personally love it.
I would have liked to see the Damien Bash line of fragrances reviewed, as well as some of the CB I Hate...
Yeah, this is indeed a good one. There are so many (I have a list) but the highlights are:
Beyond Paradise - Estee Lauder (both men's and women's)
Calyx - Prescriptives
Donna Karan Gold - Donna...
Bond No. 9
Orange Blossom Cologne
Do Parfumeurs (I hope I'm using the correct term) as talented as this get picked up by a House such as L'Artisan or do the Parfumeurs decide with whom they want to go? Or is it a mutual agreement? ...
SOTD: Calvin Klein CKone Summer 2005 edition (no, it's not stale yet)
SOTE: L'Artisan Parfumeur Navegar
I bought it off eBay and it arrived today....with a slightly dented cap (that was not mentioned in the listing, but I'm not too mad). "LC" gave it three stars in...
Burr, most definitely....he's hellasexy! I mean, Turin's not a bad looking guy and all, but.....uhhhhh....
......sorry, I guess I should have read all the posts to get a clear understanding of...
Yes, Pluran--thanks a million for your comments. I suppose the best thing for me to do is to trek down to my local Neiman Marcus to see if they have a copy I can look at. I find the staff at Saks a...
Etat Libre d'Orange
Vierges et Toreros
Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier
I never thought about that. Most of the Sephora SA's really aren't that knowledgeable about the fragrances anyway--at least the ones in the Atlanta area. If there was indeed a copy lying around the...
I have always wanted a copy of Michael Edwards' Fragrances of the World--and now that his website is offering the new 2008 edition at a ten percent discount it's awfully tempting. But...
Bond No. 9
Nuits de Noho
Mure et Musc Extreme
Bond No. 9 New York
Yves Saint Laurent
Voleur de Roses--intoxicating and seductive, just like the Count. The damp earth note makes me think of an old, musty castle.
12 to 15 sprays of Marc Jacobs takes the cake. I really love this fragrance, especially the coconut note, but there is NO sillage whatsoever. Or longevity for that matter. Whenever I wear this I...
For me, the ultimate in Fresh and Woody would be Versace Man Eau Fraiche. Citrus and light woods. The only problem could be with the sillage. It can be very overpowering if not used in...
Ugh.....I just felt a little bit sick to my stomach thinking about only having one fragrance. I wonder if I could ever get down to just a dozen!?!?
If I had to pick from what I have...
Thanks for the link! I searched and searched last night but was not able to find that particular page.
I can't believe that there are people who would blantly disregard the forum rules--or more...
I pulled up someone's profile yesterday and noticed below the member name it read "Banned". When I looked this person up on the "Member List" the name was not on there. Do people really get Banned...

TDC Rose Poivree wins the battle against number two seated SL Rose de Nuit in my War of the Roses. L'Artisan Voleur des Roses comes in a very close third.
I haven't tried either C&S No,.88 or...
From just what I own it would have to be KISS HIM. Laugh if you want but I love this stuff. It's dark, smoky, and sultry. I can't imagine any other color when smelling this. Not even the dark red...

How do you get them for free? I saw the set posted for sale on eBay and considered bidding--but not now. I definately want to get the full effect of the fragrance, top notes and all, especially if...
Serge Lutens is putting out these sample cards of their fragrances in solid paraffin form, four to a card. I've gotten EDP vials before but I've never heard of these! Can these samples be worn on...
.....Bond No. 9 Saks Fifth Avenue
I absolutely LOVED last year's Island Hawaii and consider it to be a very unisex fragrance. In fact, I've received so many complements when wearing it and love it SO much that I've hoarded a second...
I've been wanting to try this one out but haven't made it to my local "big box" retailer yet. Go ahead, make fun if you want, but I really liked last year's SUNSET HEAT for men. Granted, it wasn't...

.....Thierry Mugler ~ B*Men
.....Versace Man Eau Fraiche
I'm SO looking forward to trying this one out....just haven't made it over to Saks yet. I hope it will become my 6th bottle of Bond No. 9. The "mix" reminds me of one of my favorites: Very...
