I like Dunhill fragrances.
Well, when I bought colognes because I thought a celebrity or fictional character would wear them, I was not satisfied with myself. But as I get older, I've become more selective and mainly want...
These all sound great!
I have begun weeding out most (but not all) of the fragrances I bought because they reminded me of how someone else I admire would smell (a celebrity, a fictional character), or that encapsulate some...
:D How can we not admire ourselves when we smell so dang good? :)
You guys and gals are going all out! :) I love it! With such fine fragrance notes you all are listing, I feel compelled to include my whole list of ingredients. If I made mine just a bit more...
One Man Show has coconut in it, but it doesn't smell all that coconutty. But it is a great, great cologne.
Creed Ambre Cannelle, by far.
All those sound good.
You guys would be one good-smellin' bunch! Re: Rex- try searching for Yohji Homme (I think it fits most of those criteria), Navegar, and Spark for Men.
That sounds awesome!
No, but one time I was at a mall and I had just come out of a Nordstroms, and I sniffed my wrist. This guy said, "Admiring your wrist?" I was caught off-guard at the time, but after I walked away I...
This one goes on my never-to-buy list.
A fragrance inspired by you and you alone? Mine would be a mix of Chocolate, Masculine Musk, Cedar, Amber, and a slight hint of Patchouli.
Cuiron. And some scents I've had made for me. But Cuiron seems to fit me.
Marc Jacobs is pretty boring, in my honest opinion. I bought it because of a sample, but after I wore it a few times, I was thinking, "This is bland." I wonder if the sample was more concentrated...
I keep some fragrances secret. Like Playboy Hollywood For Men. :) I'd be hesitant to admit that one. But I like the way it smells like a maculine sugar candy.
I love it. I don't have it but I used to have a sample of it. I'll buy it one day.
Dominica Bay Rum.
Congratulations Dimitri, Ruggles and Quarry! They all sound great and I can't wait to buy each one!
Good points all!
I think that if an untitled brief wins, it should be given a name either by a collective effort by Basenotes members or the perfumers who are working on it, or both, what do you guys think?
Thank you Redneck Perfumisto!
Thank you very much! I was inspired by the history of Venice, and Italy in general, and the long history of romantic escapades therein.
Re: Fragrance Brief by hmedlock; It's just him, over and over again, posting glowing reviews of his own fragrance.
Thanks! I think if done right, it could be unisex, but you're right, it does sound predominantly feminine. Gondolas are made out of a lot of different woods, I didn't want to list them all.
It must always remain secret, but he's been charming audiences for decades, he defines cool, and his shades are dark, dark black.
Thanks Asha! I love vintage fragrances.
I understand what you're saying, but I can't grasp the emotional tone of your post. Are you angry at me?
Thanks everyone for the kind words!
Yes, the scent is wonderful and it was amazing to see an idea come to fruition like that. I had an idea for Red Vintage to be a scent that would be exciting and suave, and the scent is all of that...
Thanks for all the replies everybody!
I'm looking for masculine or unisex scents with the following general scent profile: A pink note like peach or pink grapefruit or jasmine or anything remotely pink; a suede-like note; and a vanilla...
Who cares what he wore. He was a very sick man.
What fragrance to you captures Picasso's painting style?
One of the coolest threads ever.
What would the different models of Aston Martin's be? Or just Aston Martin in general.
Halston Z-14 and Jules smell somewhat similar to me. Anyone else pick up on this?
Is that what it's called? And what can you tell me about it?
I'll have to try that. Thanks!
Thanks for the replies everybody! I'm going to get samples of all of those. Except that I can't find any info on the Fragonard Siecle. And yeah, it does sound like a project for CDG! :)
Not that you would. But a couple of years ago, I bought a deodorant stick of a cologne I liked instead of buying the cologne itself. That in and of itself is fine. But I applied the deodorant to...
Since I've been a kid (that was a long time ago), for Halloween I've dressed up as Groucho Marx and I put on a black greasepaint mustache and eyebrows. I've gotten really attached to the smell. ...
With all the interest on James Bond, I thought I might post this item. I previously posted this under another basenotes account. I have a big bottle of Bond L'Homme. The full name of the cologne...
Can't argue with that, that's what I was going to say.
I've heard this idea floating around about having to buy samples, and I think it's a wonderful idea. If you had to buy samples, the SA's wouldn't give you any attitude. What do you guys think?
Whoa, thanks for all the replies everybody!
Sorry if this question has already been asked.
I don't like it, but I do like Fleur de Male.
Great responses everybody! Thank you! Now to get my hands on some samples.
I had this dream where I smelled this amazing weird sweet lavender scent. What scents would fall under that category? And they don't have to be sweet, but that would help. But again, any weird,...
If so, how is it?
Thanks for the replies everybody!
What do they smell like? Do you have a favorite?
Do you mean you're up for it? Someone else is doing the scent for me, I think, but I might have another scent for you to work on.
I love this one.
That sounds good!
What I'm trying to convey with the fragrance is a James Bond-type cologne, inspired by Sean Connery in his early years as Bond. It should be exciting. It is inspired by a fragrance I came up with a...
Will do. I'm on vacation now, but I will take all the advice to heart and work on it when I get back. Thanks.
Okay, I'll work on shortening the list of notes.
I've bought decants through Perfumed Court and I don't think they're expensive, and I'm pretty poor. I don't buy the biggest sizes (except for Habit Rouge which was a reasonable price), I just...
1 oz. White Grape juice
1 oz. Mandarin juice
1/2 oz. Maraschino juice
Garnish with a Lemon Twist (a long, thin slice of lemon peel)
Even if you don't like the cologne, the...
Boss Selection for Daniel Craig.
Going down the list,
Gucci Pour Homme is a great, smokey fragrance;
Tommy Bahama smells good, but it's supposed to smell tropical and it includes no tropical notes;
Burberry London smells the...
Garnish with an Orange Twist (a long, thin slice of orange peel)
Top with Cinnamon and Nutmeg
Gucci Pour Homme:
Mojo by Gendarme:
Creme de Menthe
I've been working on some drinks inspired by colognes for a while, I will post some of them. Here's one:
Mania Pour Homme:
1 oz. Mandarin Vodka
1 oz. Pepper Vodka
1/2 oz. Amaretto
A splash of...
Count me in.
Here's the link:
"No one messes with Adam We!"
It certainly smells like there are rubber notes in it!
It's in the kid's section, it's for boys, but remarkably it smells like a cross between Armani Attitude and Bulgari Black. It does smell very Batman-y. :)
Thanks for the responses everybody!
I've read about this one, it sounds wonderful!
That does sound good. I'd like to try that.
Thanks, I'll check those out!
$150.00 for a bottle of Amber Canelle.
Hi. I came up with a scent (just the idea of it) a while ago, and I've been trying to find a scent which even slightly resembles it, because I seriously want to smell like this all the time. Any...
Happy Ramadan to my Muslim friends!
Thanks for all of the responses everybody!
Ha! No, just looking for a good virile scent.
VIMAX? No, I'll do a search.
Someone thought I left? :)
Oh yeah, list as many as you want! That applies to everybody.
What scent makes you feel virile?
Sounds good, but um, "The juice, concocted by Michel Girard and Louise Turner of French perfume house Givaudan, also includes "daring" ingredients you would not expect to find in a men's fragrance,...
Thanks for the responses everybody!
Which concentration would you say is the manliest version of Jicky?
Why? I think colors can have a smell.
I'm going to post a topic called "Laxatives and the Overwhelming Scent". jk!
(Note: This scent has been made. Scroll down to posts 16 and 19 to see the results!)
Here's a men's cologne that I'd like to have made. I stripped out the notes that would be too expensive to...
HA! Oh knightowl, you so crazy!
Yep, that's the thread that I mentioned in the first post. I posted that one as a joke. There are some really funny responses on that one!
Tom Ford does a lot of research, doesn't he? :D
Ha! No, that's Joop!
