Got me some hype from the past ......Spice bomb !!!!
Ummm .....Rive Gauche?
cool - that explains it quite well - thank you
Am I going crazy or is there an easy way to update a for sale item in the marketplace? I would like to bring it to the top (after several days of being posted) to bring additions and changes to...
Well I am certainly going to get my money from that overseas princess! I am now waiting to hear back ;)
Thanks for addressing this
Ok - for now I like my A*Men and I like My Pure Malt - so I will stand there I think I have covered this area well enough (not a total gourmand freak) and will move on (have sampled B Men and Pure...
Nailed it for me :) How about serious hoarder? I have more scents than I will ever use - but I like variety
Ok I have Amen and Pure Malt - would adding Taste of Fragrence be overlap? or does it bring that much new to the party ?
From the scents I have tried easily Pure Malt. At least in the opening for sure.
And the dry down is excellent!
I would indeed contact them and review the situation and see if they are billing you for it as such
With shipping, paperwork and time being what they are - I might see if they want it back - and...
Not a bad scent - and much better of a scent at today's prices :)
Cant add much to Slayerized's response other than
One of my earliest blind buys a few years ago - snagged real vintage Azzaro. Its something that has to be experienced :)
Jumping more into the Fall rotation :)
Givenchy Gentleman (verrrry vintage)
Its nice for the office :)
This is now on its way to a new home - thanks all!
I have a nice older tin still in the wrap of YSL Rive Gauche
28/34 bd dy Parc
92521 Neuilly Cedex France
Wanted M7 Absolute Oud
I have been around a little and have come to an appreciation to the finer things in life.
So I have a new in wrapper YSL Rive Gauche 2.5 Tin. Its one of the...
I get a good amount of wood out of this, it's a quality fragrance, and it's not overwhelming. - of course some of the youngsters prefer more sweetness, musk and presence -...
La Nuit - This. its not bad - but to me not all that special of a scent and very fleeting
Heck even Burberry London - not a monster hype but one often mentioned - and while its an enjoyable...
No real advise - but Good Luck and I hope you enjoy your journey
But I must say that in the Fragrance World - your business ethics.class will not help at all.... :)
Amen Pure Malt !
Not sure if it fits your description - but baby what a scent!
Polo Green to me is more of a mossy - spicy -leather - and I like it
But perhaps something more like Terre De Hermes ? Encre Noire?
To me $200 is a lot of money and there are many good...
AB Spirit Silver
I am happy with this one - it hits the spot for me!
Samba Skin! <$15 - last and has is a great tobacco /vanilla combo scent
Because its moving to that time of year again - and this is great for another long cold winter :)
And for full blown winter - grab some Samba Skin - a nice Tobacco Vanilla style - great lasting scent!
And again - will not break the bank! With the two above and this you should be just north of...
Heck I would try Yardley Citrus and Woods - will need to be a blind buy but its a great scent on its own and is very much like Terre De Hermes
And then go for the AB Silver Spirit for something to...
Ohh - now this sounds interesting !
This weekend I added some Body Shop Amber Oud to my application of Aramis Havana and it worked out well too!
Great woody scent - with a little spice
Good luck with your quest
Wow now this is a description I can get my head around! I now know I need this scent!!! ;)
Np - PM to you for the details :)
OP - if interested I would be happy to send you a partial bottle of Azzaro Onyx that I have in my stock. It's just sitting there and would save you the money and trouble of finding out with money...
Dolce &Gabbana Pour Homme - vintage
Excellent longevity, depth, silage and style. :)
Of the ones listed - Blue Jeans. Vanilla amber and powder - it's nice enough.
Reg Azzaro Pour Homme might be an interesting alternative.
Cool Water is a classic ( good in both warm and...
Ok - I have been following this one for a bit, but have not taken the leap of faith yet.
What is the silage and longevity like? I seem to be one of the skin soakers and most do not last for me...
Not powdery - but sweet. On me it does not last long other than a skin scent - which may still fit the bill for cuddling. ;)
Angel Men works for me - as does Pure Malt
In both cases - you may need to adjust application for desired results (like anything) Not so sure about The Dreamer - for cuddling.
I have been...
Well at the Fairmont on the big island they stocked the rooms with Le Labo Rose 31 and that was very nice :)
Bvlgari Aqua worked well daytime for me this January - evenings I found Occitane vetiver worked well too
Given your longevity/scent preferences - perhaps the original A**Men would be another consideration. Its really a great scent and you will find it for better prices :)
+1 - this is a great office /everyday version of TDH.
Around here (MN) - I think even adding in deodorant and antiperspirant- daily - - you might get to around 20% ;)
Hi I would love to try these
This is kind of a fun scent
First the announcement - Smell just like aventus!
Then the blind buys and trials
And then the reports - too often - the bad reports start coming in - nothing like...
9 hours and still getting wiffs. I wore this to work today (did get some on my shirt) and its great. 80 degrees outside and between that an inside air-conditioning its still rolling.
and the price changes princes into paupers...... ;)
For me - Givenchy Gentleman Vintage - make me feel like a Million Dollars
TDH Parfume - ya
TDH EDT and a bottle of the Silver Spirit !! - different and both are quite enjoyable for us average guys :)
Yardley Citrus and Woods - Woot!
+2 - And I have two 4.2 oz bottles to last me through - Italy - Euroitalia - only way to go :)
Yardley Citrus and Woods
A great combination of great scent and great value !
Samba Skin!!! tabacco - vanillie anyone?
Diesel Plus - Plus ! Spicy vanilla !
Both cost less the $15 each!!!
Mulger Pure Malt
Especially as we move into late summer and fall
Fahrenheit (Reg vintage or Absolute)
Anyone of these (from my inventory) would work for me :)
Well this week I got
Dunhill for men - vintage
Setting up my late summer fall group :)
+1 - Somehow mine gets to the back of the closet and its great to be reminded of what a joy this one is (was - vintage!)
Dolce & Gabbana Pour Homme - Blue Cap Vintage Italy
Its a little cooler here (70s) and this works so well :)
No - they do not matter. Period.
Throw them away??
Heck I give them to my kids !
Well - how about we put some of these "high moralists" on the island and then nuke it?? Seriously the older I get the less I want to go out into the 12 year old girl society the "progressives" are...
I would agree - Fahrenheit Absolute great scent !!
Wear it again.... And if she comments again then tell her you wore it because she liked it. ;)
Work it girl ... Work it!
Chanel Platinum Egoiste
Clean [ Distinguished] Metal ;)
Aramis Havana - spicy !
And a soccer match can slow down Base Notes? No way ! ;)
From my experience with it .. I will help toss some dirt on the grave
I found it not to my liking ... Very much not to my liking. ;)
Snagged me a little more of this (3.4 oz) - makes me happy :)
Ok - so they are similar in scent?
But one Dolce & Gabana Pour Homme (vintage) has better longevity?
Tom Ford is similar but smoother?
Ok and you do not like my 2nd love Aramis either! ;)
Thanks hedonic - it's all good we do it - because we love them - not because someone else does
Title says it all - I have plenty of D&G Pour Home - somewhere around 5 ounces and I love it ( nicely vintage) but am intrigued by the Tom Ford for Men. Apples to Pears comparison or too similar? ...
Read a lot about it - good and bad. Tried it at a store and scrubbed it off. Horrible. Then two years ( and a lot of scents later) came back to it in vintage and himmmm interetsing. ...
I like encre noire - it's more substantive than I thought it would be and last well for me. But it's not one I would enjoy in the deep of summer .
Playing it casual in some humid conditions - a light application of Bvlgari aqva
And then tonight perhaps some haughty YSL Pour Homme - in the air conditioning !
I would agree with this - each person needs to see what works for them. I truly enjoy Aramis and I know that not exactly everyone does - but I do and I am the one putting down the money. So sample...
What, I am suppose to keep all the fragrances I have purchased?? ;)
Ya, I churn regularly and while I sort of miss some - largely there are so many others to try there is no way I could or reason...
Aramis is sold at the Sophoras in the Penny's Store where I live and I like it ;)
2nds if he is not CUS -- because I am ;)
No - not even the most average of all time - plenty of others there
In vintage - it might not be bad - but that's about the highest complement I can give it
And really - its almost like the...
Well there is that :)
In the US smoking cigarettes is a kin to eating your own children... But smoking dope is cool .......
Polo green -inexpensive and a great daily (green) leather for us average guys :)
Of course there is also Aramis - which is a flat out mainly leather scent - and one of my favorites. To me it's a...
Ditto this. Weddings have gotten to be Prom V - the ceremony is almost an afterthought as are the vows ( for most these days) it's like a grand party for going "really steady". And if it does not...
Pity, adults just can't choose for themselves - but rather have regulatory overlords taking care of them.
And this passes for democracy?
Again , didn't Europe try this once before in the 30s?
Perhaps they can ban aging and we will all live forever.
As Europe once again goes down the path to " Everything within The State and nothing outside The State." Circa 1930.......
And they say...
L'Instant De Guerlain
Recently received a 1 oz decant of this and while I know I am late to this party I am wowed. Quality ingredients and very enjoyable woody scent.
Polo Green .... Vintage ;)
Ergo I fault a lot of today's "modern" fragrances :)
Try the reg Bvlgari Aqva? - not the marine?
Rocking the Chanel Platinum Egoiste. it's something that just so works for me!
it took me a wearing or two and it can get a little tiring -usually when I put too much on - but I am loving it !!!
1 oz Versace l'Homme - 1st reformulation
Cost $ 12.00
I dont know - even something as inexpensive as Diesel Plus - Plus last a loooong time for me
Sure, as companies adjust to the restrictions they will still need to pay attention to the desires of...
Anything mushy, sweet and cloying...... ahhh shall we just say Gormands !
Give me stinky, sharp and spicy and I am a happy guy :)
Dolce & Gabbana Pour Homme - Vintage Italy
Its just a wonderful scent - citrus throughout - smooth [light] tobacco and good projection and longevity
I also like Samba Skin - For what it is
just an average guy dabbling in the scent scene ;)
Well come on - it has to be more civilized than Lepidus Pour Homme ;)
And as a nitch virgin I am not comparing it to the original or anything special - I will just be taking it as it is
Ok - I cant resist a good scent for a good price
fragranceX notified me today they have some in stock - used the free shipping coupon and its on its way to me for $23 :)
PM on the YSL ;)
One of the few I bought (blind), tried on in the car and drove back to return it. I did - do - not like it at all.
Especially given all the easily accessible, better alternatives
For Summer fun - Go Bvlgari Aqva - it's great smelling and for me last.
In one of the Delta terminals I got the duty free lady to give me a good sample sprayer of Egoiste Platinum. Nice way to try a sample and I enjoyed it on my 5 hour flight with some to spare when I...
Notes De Lanvin Rose and OUD
A nice light scent for the office - with a lingering OUD-ish accent :)
Unwanted trouser bulge - I thought thats exactly why the skinny pants were made? :) :)
"is that a gun in your pocket... or are you just happy to see me?" M West
I would think Aramis might fit the bill well to
Not exactly modern - but excellent to me and smooth leather. And what cowboy wears modern scents?? A "Dude" might wear Le Male - but not a real...
