Francis Kurkdjian talks about his upcoming fragrances.
It might just be my nose but I get a very nice minty note from Dior Bois d'Argent.
I have been shaving with a sensor two blade cartridge my whole life and thought I'd try a DE. Ordered the Edwin Jagger DE89 and Derby blades (yes I was going the beginner / safe route) and they came...
I bought it this week and really love this stuff. Very smooth, not greasy and the smell is great, at least IMHO. Have actually been using all over, face hands and body.
I am on a bit of a ASB and Shave Cream search at the present time and I still have not settled on a finalist. I have tried many different brands. I don't have any serious skin problems so my ASB...
I received a sample of Jasmin Rouge several months ago. I liked it so much I that ordered a bottle as a gift for my wife. It arrived about three weeks ago. She has never worn, nor wanted to wear...
If you are near a L'Occitane store try sampling some Eau Des Beaux. Price is very reasonable and smell great too.
Darn it Ron, your killing me here man. I'm supposed to be getting tax extensions finished and I find that I'm killing too much time repeatedly checking BN each evening so I can get your daily update....
So then we agree. You simply don't invite the guy back, or in the case of the store, you simply remove the testers or place them behind the counter.
I likewise disagree with your analogy. You pay before you step up to the buffet.
It's not stealing but it is known here in the south as "bad manners". If we were to throw a house party and set out a big bowl of boiled shrimp for all of the guests, we are expecting you to take...
Ron, you are a fragrance god !I bow at your feet, you have inhaled more artwork in one day than I may in a lifetime.
Hail to the Jedi master DJRon.
All Hail Aventus !
I just checked Strawberry net and they have DHI in stock now. Don't know if this is the reformulated or some old stock. Someone might want to check. It is after Sept 13th after all.
What is this blasphemy ?
You will never have your fragrance staring at you with arms crossed and tapping foot, it will not change the TV channel to the Lifetime Movie Network in the middle of the Super Bowl, and your...
It's a clear sign. She is not the one for you !
I remember the first time I had sex.... I was so frightened and scared and alone .....
No actually a 360 and youd be going the same direction.
Man you are exactly right ! I'm going to be turning 58 soon and the dementia is setting in. Besides I haven't watched a Charlie Brown episode in probably three or four years. Just another classic...
Us guys are generally better at beating a dead horse. Just look at the sheer quantity of Pure Malt, Aventus Batch Number etc etc posts.
Would be neat if we could pull statistics on SOTD. ! I know it shows who's wearing what etc but I'd love to be able to ask for a chart showing top 10 or 20 most worn men/women, how many wore...
Actually quite liked this one. First time I had experienced the citrus/leather combo. I liked it so much I just bought a bottle this week. My biggest concern is possible lack of projection. It seems...
Love TFM, wore it as my SOTD today.
Maybe 28 or 29 years ago when my grown children were small, we lived in a small older home with a full, unfinished concrete block basement. This basement had a loose fitting garage style door in the...
I've always thought it is funny how the faint smell of skunk off in the distance is somewhat pleasant to my nose, within 50 to 100 yards, Not So Much !
My online order went through with no problems, Big Brown PM Hockey Puck is on it's way to Hooterville.
This is starting to remind me of one of those "The World is going to end on such and such a date" preachers. And to think I sold all of my possessions, bought a tent and a laptop and have been camped...
Sonoma Scent Studios, Tabac Aurea today.
Best : L'Air du Desert Marocain
Worst : Delicious Closet Queen
I strive to be one ~
Well Dan (MyMickers) finally hit the bigtime. Made the local newspaper. Nice article Dan, congratulations.
Ready for a Friday nite on the town with Aventus
When you mentioned coconut soaps my first thought was Virgin Island Water !
I'm needing to add this to my wardrobe also. It's fantastic IMHO. Thanks
I enjoy visiting the department store fragrance counter and asking the SA of the day "Do you have any Gur-layne Poor Homie?" with my deep redneck accent. I assure you it wouldn't matter how many...
Yes soy candles are often more difficult to get scent to "throw", it is much easier with paraffin wax. I make candles at home as a hobby and many of my suppliers actually recommend certain fragrances...
Ouch ! Major childhood flashback ! I remember owning that green car, it was my first ever cologne when I was about 11 or 12 years old. I'm now 57 !
You are now considered a "professional BN'r", your membership card is in the mail.
I think Captain America opened at the theaters this weekend. Anyone going? If you are wear the cologne !
Next... Mazzolari patchouli and Montale patchouli leaves. Two entirely different patchouli themes from those you have already tried.
BTW another BN'r here calls me "Patch-head" so I guess I'm...
Mine is pretty dark blue but it's fairly new also, about three months old. PM me if you want me to send you a decant to give him for comparison. Bought mine at Macy's. It's the only one I've owned...
Tom Ford Grey Vetiver
Tom Ford Extreme.
I have both in my arsenal, I find myself going for Back to Black much more often, though I like them both very much.
Today was Eau Sauvage
Any thoughts from you guys on what the next "invest-able" fragrance might be? In other words what can we buy and hold for retirement income? Do they make a "limited edition Grey Flannel"? <g>
Serge Lutens Cedre today.
I saw that a bottle of Pure Coffee just sold for $259 on ebay.
Next time my wife complains about my...
My SOTD is Sonoma Scent Studios Sienna Musk, love it.
Sonoma Scent Studios, Sienna Musk
Full agreement ! I also wear a half helmet and my bike has a windshield. The draft over the windshield and back up in my face works like spritzing the bottle into a fan.
Acqua di Parma Colonia
I have a Harley Road King and wore Sonoma Scent Studios Tabac Aurea last week when riding in to work. I could actually smell it all the way to work (16 miles) and had scent to spare till around 2:00...
Mazzolari Patchouli or Montale Patchouli Leaves are my favorites.
Oldest advertising and marketing trick in the book. Start a buzz about your product!
Frapin Caravelle Epicee
Back to Black
Love here for Sonoma Scent Studio Tabac Aurea. Also a big fan of Tobacco Vanille.
The first time I applied Aventus, I got the ashtray thing going on as well. I was quite repulsed and actually took a shower within 5 minutes to remove it. Came back to it about a week later and tried...
"What Batch numbers do I need to watch out for?"
Souk - Impressions
Souk starts, to me, as a smokey, black-light, beads and bongs head-shop incense stick. I swear there is an incense stick that smell just like Souk. I am totally lost trying to...
Sikar - Impressions
I find Sikar even nicer than Cathedral in Flames. To me it is a bit harder to describe and I get sensations of notes that apparently do not exist. It is also more masculine in...
I apologize for not looking closely at the name <Grin> Cathedral on Fire ..Cathedral in Flames... Gaff #1
Have tried to correct my post, hope it worked,
I say Aqua-d-million !
Cathedral In Flames - first impressions - 6-1-2011
I received the samples from Jim yesterday and have completed my first full day test drive. I randomly chose Cathedral In Flames for no...
I love this fragrance. I get the chocolate/vanilla in the drydown but the most interesting thing I get from it is some light pipe tobacco. Not overwhelming nor as strong as Tobacco Vanille but...
Virgin Island Water today...
The only similarity between Anteus and Kouros is Powerhouse ! Don't base your decision on that.
I dig Montale too.
Don't do it ! Don't give in to the Darkside, Luke ! Let the woman go. You have too many years invested in this relationship. Signed Dear Abby.
Bless you and your family mate, happy days!
My Condolences dude. But whatever you do, don't let her read this thread.
Your exactly right of course ! There goes my feeble attempt at humorous sarcasm. lol
I just placed my first order through Fragrance.Net and the first steps went fine, Ordered 5/21 (great price BTW) and notified that it was shipped on 5/23 but I'm not sure about this Fed-Ex stuff...
Sorry but I had to laugh when I saw the title of this thread. I thought it was about a PGA golf tournament . lol.
How about A*Men Sport?
Let's see, according to various advise received above, the R is silent and the G is silent so it's obviously ...Thiey Mule...
Browsing the counter at one of the larger local department stores. There were many Chanel's but they did not appear to have any of the exclusifs. I thought it wouldn't hurt to ask anyway. SA said...
I'd look for something that makes me smell like a brass pole. Any ideas anyone?
Info should be in your PM box, thanks
Be glad to help if you need another USA.
From reading you post I would bet that both you and he would like Pure Havane. Verrrry Interesting.
A powerhouse not only smacks you in the face, it also leaves a cloud behind you wherever you go.
Like that Linus character in the Charlie Brown cartoon.
From a business perspective, this way you only have to sell a few to have a good year.
I am on a quest to sample them all !
What Next - Musc Ravageur Sport
I disagree with your assumption entirely. I was once sprayed by a skunk and my wife wouldn't bed me for a month. So I think smell has a lot to do with it.
Read your article Ron'.. great job. Looking forward to the "inexpensive alternatives". Be sure to let us know when it comes out.
I think heaven smells like Tobacco Vanille, that's what I'm going to wear.
I do declare I believe you are Hilbillyphobic. Not only can I pull it off right here in the trailer park, but my coon dog will be wearing it too.
I believe DJRon wears Black Orchid quite often. He sent me a sample today and I got my first whiff. I think I can pull it off. Time will tell.
I have too many samples to go through. I might have some recommendations in a few months. <G>
Tobacco Vanille today.http://t0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQR9cGzmGIarJ7tkExesZY4B4Hnr85mmWEIN8_mtfLodPE4wl2wyQ
