  1. Re: Does your dog/cat act differently when you wear a certain scent?

    I was once on a train wearing a Kalimantan oud oil I got off Ham Firl on ebay. Anyway, the people in front had a dog. At one point he was licking my hands, then got a whiff of the oud on my wrist and...

    Re: 212 - Surprising discovery for me..

    It's a wonderful fragrance, and nice that you picked out the incense, it's subtly there in the background and for me, is probably the foundation of the wonderful dry down. Enjoy!

    Yes, hope the holy month goes well for all Muslim BN'ers. For me, I associate Eid with two things; a taste, and a smell. A friend of mine brings back unwanted sweets from family Eid celebrations (I...

    Re: Is Issey Miyake for men a classic?

    Whatever it is defined as at present, it will become a classic in due course. It was the first mainstream men's scent to use calone, as far as I know, and when I wore it in 94 people would ask me...

    Monsieur Balmain for a citrus burst. And, dare I say it, that old Basnotes favourite, L'eau D'Issey. I'll get booted now!

    It's going to be something with the next big thing in synthetics, that we won't know about for a century. Think someone wearing calone based fragrances in a Dickens novel or something!

    Re: The Most Sensual Fragrance Poll!

    Any decent oud/agarwood oil is just pure sex and sensuality to me. From dirty, animalistic through to humid jungle, this one is my sex scent!

    Re: Le Labo Oud 27

    I'd like them to not discontinue the 2003 Pour Homme, if that is what they are planning. I'd liek them to re-release Rush. That is all.
