bump! some of these have not been added
This house is still not added it seems.
Of note, see the similarity of Ybry's original bottle designs and the design of Lagerfeld's Kapsule scents.
Apparently Coty's design team and...
I like it that i can be gone for ages and it always feels like home.
Thank you team BN
I am so sorry to be answering this late. My apologies.
I did find a bottle of Ivoire the original at an auction a long time ago (like most avid bottle and fragrance collectors, i was hunting them...
Amazing, I'm so glad these will not be forgotten!
Thank you so much furrypine for the continued updates, sometimes i thought, why keep posting since no one seemed to care or answer but i was clearly wrong!
Thanks to the Basenotes team as well...
No, they don't.
Where in my post did i mention K was not a masterpiece?
I agree with KK , Antaeus and Amouage Gold
I agree with the mentions of Cuir Mauresque and Bal à Versailles
I was talking about the base which on me is skanky.
I would most certainly not classify Kouros as classy
so since 3 is too little: here's part 2 of my previous selection
1. Davidoff Relax
2. Fendi Theorema
3. Chanel Bois Noir
Chanel's Platinum Égoïste has a rather skanky animalic base and it's one of the classiest drydowns there are and last a long time on me.
I've read about what you may want, and I would say save a little more and test the Acqua di parma's Blu Mediterraneo line, I would say for you it sounds like Arancia di Capri , Mandorlo di Sicilia or...
Welcome! you might want to try:
Eau de Guerlain
Hermès Eau de Colgne
Armani Pour Homme
VF is much more cirtusy and I find a bit of spearmint as well, nice sillage , longevity varies from skin to skin,on me it's decent.
Very different basenotes, not warm at all nor spicy (very light)...
P is for Pasha by Cartier
Cartier's Pasha Fraîcheur Menthe. It's minty ice/glaciar in a bottle .
1. Ô pour Homme
2. Fahrenheit -original
3. Bois des Îles -Chanel-original
why 3 only?
H is for Habanita by Molinard
You mentioned here Infini, i'd say go for it only if you love deeply intense Aldehydic fragrances, it's more in the line of Arpège or Climat, even a very old bottle will give you an intense aldehydic...
Agree with most of the Vetivers recommended in here. It might be interesting to test even fresher scents as a dichotomy for wintery weather, think of it as eating Ice cream in mid-winter.
It's all -technically- about the concentration as it has been said, but it's important to know that some houses also like to change the notes included in a scent of the same name but of different...
Not all of them are trash
About the misleading thread title...give me a break.
I'm actually wearing DHI right now, and i have liked all versions of DH so i hope i'll get to try this one out but i'm confident about it!
Thank you! Vetiver is one of my favorite notes.
J is for Jasmin de Rigaud by Rigaud
there are more "new" fragrances by the house:
Blue Aire de Sevilla
Posseidon Gold Hombre
Lavanda inglesa and Posseidon White have...
Have lots of fun hednic!
It's a sunny day so I'll go for a sunny oldie: Insensé by Givenchy...
It's fine, I'm very patient, thank you again! :dankk2:
As they say, piano piano si va lontano ...or somethin' like that hehe
I'd say as many as you like.
If you like to be practical and savings-savvy then less is more but always keep one or 2 pairs more than the absolute minimum required for your personal needs in case...
Same here, I prefer to be clean shaved anyway.
I tend to mix beards with laziness and bad smelling things. (think hobo and out of work types)
But if it makes you happy, then go for it of...
You could also use a home-made light exfoliating paste/mask and also, there are also natural ways to moisturize the skin (there's plenty of info you can search for online) to help with it and I would...
I usually sample the scent for a full day and go about my day and use up the entire thing if there's enough but not all at once, just reapply bit by bit if i can...and if i don't like it at first,...
For the office it's always best something alluring but understated (as is, strong but silent man type) , not too loud but if it's unique it would be a plus, although not a necessity.
One of my Holy Grails...let me spray some of this masterpiece.
That said, even the various reformulations and flankers smell better than a whole bunch of new designer -and many niches- it's bold...
Anti-aging seems to be too early for your age -unless you've seen a marked loss in your skin's overall condition compared to before-, what I would recommend more is a good sun block/sun screen -as it...
After all this time I'm painfully aware of the shenanigans of our scented-world friends, like, will living in the north for what it seems like an eternity (no pun intended) will I end up anosmic to...
Cypria (year ?) 10s
Casanova is from 1929
Lotion Fourgère (year ?) earliest possible, before 1900. -note: Different from Fourgère-
Victrix (year ?) 10s -1913 most likely-...
Thank you for sharing and I love how your collection has grown! You have a good eye for shapes and colors also.
I have a theory about the use of Gardenia on olden scents, the thing is, it's very...
Ahhhh Theorema, the name alone evokes intelligence and balance and that's before we open the bottle and marvel at the scent on all levels... I love that it's getting continued respect from all of...
I haven't been here in a while and everything seems to be working great! Good job!
Fantastic! Thank you so much Furrypine!
Here's some more:
This is an old Chilean house that creates and produces budget scents for men, women and unisex, they...
Thank you for sharing, I can't wait to sample Entre Naranjos.
I don't find either Kouros nor APH "tough guy" fragrances, Kouros I find it to be a little too sporty for that and APH is too elegant to be that way, as I tend to mix unelegance with "tough...
edit - double post
Don't know how this happened
Thank you for this one, i was wondering about it, the notes seem very nice indeed (Topnote: Pomelo, Orange Heartnote: Geranium, Pepper, Agarwood (Oud) Basenote: Patchouly, Cedarwood, Musk ).
Absolutely... you can't
Just hold onto it for a coupke of years, I recently (this year) saw a similar one at an auction and it actually went for about 4000 USD, which is not too shabby :wink: I thought it was going for...
The collection is getting better and better!
I specially loved the red czech cut glass from the 20s and the fantastic Garniture Enfants de Lalique which I believe this one in particular is from...
I wish I could've had the multiple choice option here.
and about Monotheme's lines, they have added some scents to their "Classic" line as well:
APOTHEOSE DE ROSE
They are all unisex and in...
As I mentioned on my 2009 post, Mavive still distributes Pino Silvestre and they now have other scents in production apart from the classic (it's listed under the label "Silvestre" in the Directory)...
Some are still not in the directory...
Since Mavivie now distributes/produces a bunch of brands now I'd like to add other of Mavive's brands in this thread, I'll start with:
Pal Zileri (all...
The site has funcioned perfectly for the last days, very smoothly and I haven't had any problems like before, Thank you BN Team!
Very difficult as i like them all. Since Arancia di Capri hasn't gotten any votes, I'll give it one, not that it doesn't deserve it, it does, I do wish they would have added a more "fizzy" note to it.
Too bad for the models, their jobs seem meaningless next to celebrities nowadays.
I'm on firefox and today I have replied to some threads and after the reply is sent I get "database error" and then it doesn't get posted but after I re-post it doesn't show up yet still says it's a...
Right now I'm using this one and works just fine:
along with just one drop of this one:...
Of the "Oldies" I have tried both scents you mention and also Chloé Innocence, which was a pre-fruity floral, more in the ranks of Narcisse than Original Cholé. All three scents are tremendously...
Madonna on IFRA (via Now Smell This):
also, the article in The Guardian (UK) about it:...
I'm surprised and shocked at this comment to say the least.
I have no problem with any perfume that says "Made in Mexico" or any other latin country for that matter.
Here's more information and a previous thread:
Yes, I'm sure. The bottles were expensive for manufacture, so Guerlain stopped making them, also, they did not sell as expected, so the extraits went back to their original bottle designs, which were...
The bottle is from the 50s.
This specific design was made available from 1950 to 1955, some bottles were designed and produced by Baccarat and other bottles by Pochet et du Courval. This design...
I agree, The Dreamer is a pleasant scent for me in its entirety as well .
The Dreamer is a rather unique fragrance, but there are various scents that denote a certain aura similar to it,...
No, I haven't gotten any malware notifications after the site went up.
I believe Basenotes provides us with the news, the facts, as they always have.
Then, we basenoters choose what's best for us (or not) based on the news BN provided.
Scents are such a personal...
The one with the tulip/flower stopper seems to be the oldest. The dark shalimar right in the middle the second oldest (I'm guessing). If I'm not mistaken, the purse spray is from the 50s -I saw one...
Meanwhile, I eagerly await for the release of Chrome Summer Sport Nights Slate Washboard Limited Edition.
Yes, you know it's coming too.
Thank you for the information; it's always a bit sad when they take something away that was such a staple the way it was before. Alas, It comes as no surprise really.
I'm assuming that it's most...
I have always thought that Anaïs Anaïs is one of those scents that if a man tested a dark vial of it in small doses, he would find the scent to be classified as a unisex scent, it's entirely possible...
Chanel Cuir de Russie
Hermès Kelly Calèche
Royal Rose Oud by M Micallef
Feminite du Bois
there's a long list really.
From the moment I read: wedding, summer, sweden, not crazy about flowers, and outdoors, "Dioressence" by Dior came to mind.
I hope you find what you are looking for scent-wise, congratulations and...
My guess is that they want to steer away from any names that may sound too feminine, so, logically (not), they went for warm bread.
Thank you for the news!
I wonder what makes the industry think we are soon running out of aquatics to buy/want.
I find it vesatile as well, i don't know if i would go to a dance club wearing this, but then again, i never go to dance clubs.
It's very elegant and "grown up" if we go for conventionalisms.
Only if you happen to like AHS.
Both are very different fragrances.
I just noticed you asked the same question in 5 more different threads. What happened?
I got a malware warning on both safari and firefox, just before the site went down.
So, i have just tested this one and I'm happy to say I like it. I tried to avoid reviews to get a more objective view but it was inevitable to avoid Basenotes comments so I was expecting a trashy...
Thank Grant and Co. you for taking care of the site and our info! I really appreciate it.
I used to be as meticulous as this character's personal care but nowadays I take it much more lightly and possibly even leisurely. Strange since I now have plenty more time to do it than before,...
While i agree that Vintage Guerlain's Vetiver is a classic scent that may work at times on the summertime, I do not think it's the best vetiver for intensely hot and humid climates, I do find...
I remember that at some time in the past, the vintage Tosca EdC by Muelhens/4711 (which by the way i don't believe is in the directory) reminded me of Irish Spring Soap.
There's also the very affordable and quite solar and tropical if I may say, Mango Mandarin from Bath & Body Works, it's both fresh and loyal to the notes it advertises and may be a surprisingly...
That's a very unfortunate name yes, maybe they are trying too hard, but when one sees the company it may come as no surprise (no pun intended of course).
Stand-alone, it's very tacky to say the...
If you want to sample a designer scent, the notes you seem to look for are all in Amarige Mariage by Givenchy, it's one of the smoothers creamier florals that also happen to has a little more...
I too like all of these scents.
Licorice seems to be a rather tricky note, as some have mentioned it may turn sour at times. I love sweet licorice the regular licorice allsorts that is, it's both...
The first post is the one i found to be the most entertaining, it was simple and felt like an honest view of some of basenoters' quirks relating to the topic in question.
I started with the...
I don't think so, it would feel as my nose and senses were being hijacked by a dictator.
I'm interested in this one as well, she sounds to be quite the fragrance fan herself since i've read over the years that she loves/likes/wears:
Fracas (like her mother did and also as shown of that...
I went a bit dizzy there for a second at the thought of going all bare (that is, nonscented) to, well, anywhere.
I would recommend a classic, light, possibly grassy/airy, cologne-strengh to the...
I agree with this, i would add Polo (original) and Guerlain's Heritage and Vetiver.
They are all very different so to name just one "Most Classic Smelling" is a bit of a hassle since they are all...
DHI of course.
I lost count of this back in the 60s maybe 70s I think.
