That was awesome. Top 10 Top 10. Hilarious stuff
Glad I just picked up a bottle of edt last week 3.4 oz tester for $23 shipped.
Yeah I sampled this at a discount store, there was an open box, and I left the store within 10 minutes and smelled my arm in the car. It was barely detectable. No place in my wardrobe for a fleeting...
Lomani Black Intense. This one wowed me. For $20 this could easily cost $120.
Cedar and Incense. Warm yet fresh. I can see this being a year round staple. I don't care what anyone compares this to...
She tolerates. Rolls her eyes a lot. But doesn't really say anything.
She never understands refreshing a fragrance or wearing something before bed.
Nor does she appreciate overspraying.
Bvlgari PH Soir
+1 Gucci PH II
Most used favorites recently
Lomani AB Silver
Bvlgari PH Extreme
Lomani Black Intense
Midnight in Paris would be a good one
Ck One Shock
Try LIDG more cacao than LIDGE. Also easier to find.
HM is nice citrus and chocolate.
Emporio Armani Diamonds has a nice cocoa scent.

Lanvin L'Homme sport

Yea it is pretty powerful after the initial spray. But it does settle down nicely as you have found.
You definately don't need to overspray with this, as it lasts and projects.
Thanks for your...
I've never had a fragrance give me a headache. Usually it's stress or sinus.
Rochas is a very nice gourmand frag. Well worth trying.
You like vanilla and want affordable, try Altamir by Ted...
These do not work as 'antiperspirants' but as a deodorant. They don't block the perspiration from coming through, you still sweat, they kill the bacteria from causing the sweat to create odor...I...
I just keep picturing Jerry Seinfeld, button down, jeans and sneakers.
Not the best look.
I wear casual loafers or driving mocs. Sometimes Chuck Taylor's.
When the weather gets cold it's boots
I have had good luck with Crystal. It's like an alum stick. No odor after 12 hours even when working outside.
I keep mine on a shelf in walk in closet ( we have his and hers, so it is MY closet).
Door stays closed,light off. I keep the floor vent open in summer and closed in winter.
I have a digital...
Chanel Allure Sport Extreme.
It just smells good to me. Also garners many compliments.
Spray your wrists or forearms. Inner elbow works well too. Maybe try back of your neck.
Anywhere where it won't be directly wafting up to your nose and overwhelming your smell.
I like tops of...
Somebody find an answer... I am dying to know.
I would think Old Spice, Aramis, Polo, Cool Water, and Curve would be a good top 5 guess.
Maybe it was a 1 Million air freshener hanging from his review mirror.
I bought a tester in 2013. I have no idea when it was made.
I spray one to the chest and one each side of neck. Put undershirt on and respray same spots 5 minutes later.
This is pretty standard...
I wore LW yesterday to work. I work in a restaurant so food begins to be your scent. But 6 sprays and 8 hours later my wife hugged me when I got home and said "you smell nice"
This post was more about a small perfume house with a lovely vetiver fragrance for, I believe $16.
Not a your favorite vetiver thread.
But thanks for the info
Fruity tobacco that maintains a fresh feel. It becomes a little woody with sandalwood and musk while maintaining a fresh fruity vibe. Excellent longevity. It just seems like a well blended fragrance...
Feeling Man by Jil Sander. I had a mini of this and scored a 1.7 bottle on ebay for a decent price. I love this fragrance
I have the New Spice edt. It is nuclear longevity and projection. Gourmand with a caramel sweetness. Very nice in cold.
I have samples of refined, aspect, and arimarse. None seemed to have lasting...
I have not tried GV so I have no reference. I would call it smoky yet bright.
Encre Noir with a little sweetness added to it from neroli
I tried Issey at a duty free shop once. And while not vile, I did go to the bathroom and scrub it off after about 10 minutes.
I went back to spray something else for my 6 hour plane ride.
Wait a minute... Uh, what. I don't get it. Never mind. I'm confused
[QUOTE=dmckean44;3213714]I ordered a bottle earlier this morning. I figured I'll give it a try since it looks like a good value.[/
I hope you enjoy. Thank you for giving it a shot.
You are welcome. I know I enjoy wearing this frag. I am surprised at the limited responses for this post.
I hope somebody checks it out so the word can spread. The owner, Wendy, is fantastic. Great...
I have a sample of 12. I thought I would let my wife try it but she is not so enthusiastic about fragrance.
I thought I would gift in a trade someday or whatever. Now you have piqued my interest.
I though 5 used to be 6. Now 6 is 5. Maybe I'm wrong.
I have #s 5,7,11 &14. I love all of them. I am always tempted to buy 4 just to complete the set, but consensus reviews are it has serious...
Altamir by Ted Lapidus
Cereus 14. Very good longevity but not good projection. Boozy scent
Lanvin Arpege discontinued but still obtainable
I enjoy Havana but don't seem to reach for it often. It is a nice summer night fragrance, a bit heavy, but does give you the feeling of sitting in an open air bar with 85 degree temperature sipping...
I urge you to try a fragrance from Saint Charles Shave. A lovely vetiver called Very V.
You can order a sample for a few bucks or take the plunge and spend less than $30 for a full bottle.
Azzaro PH. I don't get the love for this.
I have no problem with longevity, 6-8 hrs with 4-6 sprays. It works very well in summer and autumn.
I find it to be similar to Oscar de la Renta for men. This has more depth and not as linear as...
How similar is Intense Black to Quorum Silver? I have QS and I read some thoughts that it was similar.
If IB is a cedar bomb I may pass on it.
I am interested in original AB Spirit. However if...
Lomani Silver Spirit
Both bottles are very wearable in summer. Versatile for year round.
You will have change in your pocket from your $50
Thinking of picking up 24 Gold. So much love for this I think I have to have it for this coming cold weather.
Also been contemplating Atelier Ambre Nu
Autumn for me. I can start to pull out the heavy hitters and still wear some transitional stuff.
Problem is, I can't put anything away too deep. Because fall in Ohio can be 80's or 40's . Sun or...
I got 2 compliments wearing this yesterday.
A female friend at dinner said I smelled good from about 3 feet. That was at 8:30
My wife hugged me goodbye at 5:00 am and said I smelled nice....
I was gifted this. It's pretty good i wear it occasionally, although not in awhile.
I think Atelier Vanilla Incensee works pretty well in summer. The citrus keeps it bright.
I also use Perry Ellis 360* White in the summer. It seems to not have the sweetness of a lot of vanilla...
If you have a Trader Joes nearby, I love their lemon/verbena soap and the verte soap. The verte is a green tea soap and smells wonderful.
I just jumped on the hype train. I ordered a bottle from FragrenceX $22.95 shipped.
I have never smelled Aventus, but hopefully I will be impressed with this one.
I have recently fell in love with a few cheapies.
Salvatore Feragamo PH is a fantastic scent. I would pay 3 times what it cost.
Original Penguin is another really nice frag. I think I paid $5.99...
Oh, you have tried all the cheapies? Because I have mostly cheapies, some I love, some I like. I know this is your opinion, but I beg to differ.
Also what is your $$ definition of a cheapie? From...
That's what I was thinking
I have similar tendencies, saving my loved ones for special occasions and wearing my like so a day to day.
I think if I use up some of the good ones. I can then move on to the greats.
Black Touch by Franck Olivier. Very close in scent and performance. <$30 try it it's very nice
Coming of age
Halston I 12 & Z 14
Also Blue Stratos, I used to wear the shit out of this in like 1984 when I was 12
First time blending scents.
I layered Quorum Silver w/ Guy Laroche Horizon and it was quite a nice fragrance blend.
I think I might also try Horizon with Chopard Noble Cedar, I think that might...
D&G the One
Just like fragrances, something different every shave. I shave 5 or 6 days a week and have about 15-20 soaps and creams I rotate. I also have about 40-50 A/S's I use depending on mood, weather, what...
Yeah I saw Cereus website and they have no new offerings, they still have the 5 male originals. $125 each
I got all 4 of mine for about $100 total.
Never thought about starting a "Is my Cereus...
I love # 5, 7 & 11,
#14 least favorite, not due to scent, but performance. It's very well done fragrance though.
# 11 is probably my favorite. Wonderful play of anise and vetiver that lasts and...
I don't know of any reforms I like better than originals, but flankers
Lanvin homme sport better than L'Homme
YSL La Nuit better than L'Homme
L'Essence de Cerutti better than Cerutti Homme...
I thought the Cereus house was no longer producing fragrances. As in discontinued as a line of frags.
All of there offerings can be found on ebay for around $30 or less.
I have all of their scents...
I wouldn't suggest polo red. For the price longevity is an issue. It's a nice scent but nothing extraordinary.
I haven't tried Aqua Marine but it has piqued my interest.
Some budget friendly...
I'm going to throw in Original Penguin. Very nice. I got 1 oz for $6 at TJs
Virgin Island Water or
Allure Homme Edition Blanche
Thanks for the input. I think I may pass. I have plenty of fresh, light summer frags
Guy Laroche Horizon 1.7 for $8
If anybody owns this or has tried this can you reccomend blind buying?
What can you compare it to?
TJs has it for $15 for 3.4 oz and there is not many reviews or info on this one.
Any help is...
3.4 oz tester w/ cap for $58 shipped. Smells just like my testing and sample from Macys
I bought this blind a while back and really enjoy it on a warm, not too hot spring/summer day. I see it more of a sunshine frag than an evening scent. But YMMV
Wow a lot of hate for AHS Extreme. I enjoy it, in fact out of much sampling at Macys, this was the oneI liked most for a versatile, any season any time scent. I picked it up online for cheap and then...
I would say 30+ FBs
I have a 4 season rotation but some crossover. The seasons in the Midwest can crossover as well, hot and humid in spring and fall as well as snow in fall and spring.
I do wear some heavier scents...
Cartier Declaration d'un Soir
This has been getting a lot of positive chatter lately, thought I'd give it a blind buy.
A little worried about the rose note I hope it's not too prominent. Not one...
Only in the winter, my skin gets very dry in the low humidity cold Ohio winters.
Once the weather and humidity cranks up, I don't feel the need
Aqua di selva nice herbal fresh scent. I get vetiver in the dry down.
Capucci ph is nice lemon scent
Reviving this thread.
I too have been looking for a vetiver aftershave to pair w/ vetiver based frags.
I agree most designer A/S offerings to pair with edts are lacking in ingredients to heal and...
I definately think it works in summer, don't over apply. It has a fresh, ozoneic vibe that plays well with the sweet fruitiness of the fragrance. IMO this makes it work in warmer weather as well as...
Quite a few w/ tonka I wear for summer that work quite well
Hanae Mori HM
Chanel Allure Homme Extreme
R by Revillon
Just to name a few
D&G Light Blue gets tons of compliments for me
On the cheap, cheap side Izod and Lanvin l'homme sport has garnered many a "you smell nice" which is good if you just want to smell nice sometimes
Oh! I was looking at website, which only has 20% off.
New West had my interest at that price but they don't have it on the website
I do not see this sale on perfumania, nor do I see most of these clearance items.
I also love PF. I think Vincent Vega would be wearing something like Paco Rabanne PH . Seems to suit him.
Mrs Mia Wallace, definately something vintage like Chanel no 5, due to her love of...
I bought 30 ml original penguin today for $13
D&G the one travel set for $69 caught my eye but did not buy. 3.3 oz edt w/ shower gel And aftershave
Oscar de la Renta for men has a nicr jasmin note and price makes it a steal.
L'Essence di Cerruti is a nice soft leather.
If you want a punch in the face leather get a bottle of Pinaud Special Reserve and enjoy.
I love NR, but I would never reach for it on a sunny summer day, or warm night. I am one who feels weather/ seasons do play into my fragrance rotation, or selection. To me NR is definately a cooler...
My recent most worn lineup for spring:
D&G PH (vintage)
Hanae Mori hm
Black Touch by Franck Olivier
Chopard Noble Cedar
+1 Pino Silvestre. Heavy dose of pine and green notes that dries down to a lovely vetiver scent that is refreshing, not earthy vetiver. Longevity is great for an edc. I wore 3 sprays yeaterday and...
Just received Lanvin Arpege. I am floored at what an amazing fragrance this is. I am now thinking about a backup while still available and affordable.
Lanvin Arpege 1.7 oz. Blind buy. Now the waiting begins.
Nautica Voyage. :D
Lanvin L'homme sport
Cereus # 5,7,11. Great quality scents, can be found cheap. 11 being my new favorite. Really nice vetiver.
Franck Olivier Black Touch.
Chopard Noble Cedar...
I really like this one. It gets a lot of use when the weather heats up.
Prada amber is more elegant, but maybe too sweet, and or, too mainstream. YSL Pour Homme HC might be what you are looking for. Or try Capucci ph.
I really enjoy Zino. I could take or leave Azzaro ph and after 2 years of Rive Gauche, still trying to decide if I actually like it. I truly dont get the hype with RG or Azzaro. Zino sings in cold...
I received a ADG card in the mail yesterday. You know open the flap, smell the scent, rub it on your skin.
It was an advertisement for Armani where every bottle sold $5 goes to unicef or something...
I am mostly a blind buyer. I am with you. Research as much as you can, know what you like and find the best deal. I have some misses. But nothing I regret too much.
I don't get the "I'll use it as...
I would say not. Too heavy not really a fresh scent. I wouldnt dream of wearing this on a hot GA day.
Try Polo Blue
Good cheapie is Aqua Quorum
Prada Amber, not a fougere, but it's fresh and clean...
