That green is so off putting
AdP Colonia for me, hands down.
Yup, have owned and loved both, especially DHI.
I'm a huge fan of the entire Dior Homme lineup (some exceptions), but Eau just didn't do it for me on the 1st wearing. I actually got decent...
Tried it yesterday--very mediocre in both my opinion and that of my company.
Are you sure Lumiere Noire has been reformulated? Any more input on that? (Sorry for the hijack)
Dolce & Gabanna Pour Homme (vintage)
I second Lumiere Noire
D&G PH vintage is a go-to first date frag for me (or maybe 2nd if she's worth my limited quantity :p
I'm falling more in love with Lumiere Noire each day so I hope to buy this for Spring :)
Based upon your description, MFK Lumiere Noire springs to mind. I think it would fit really well in your collection
I have a D&G Pour Homme Made in Italy tester up for sale
Bought from a fellow member here few months ago.
$55 shipped anywhere CONUS
Merry Christmas and all the best to everyone here! :)
It seems many of you guys are saying to go light on the trigger with Uden; in my experience Uden is down there with my least well
performing scents. Poor longevity/projection on me.
Thanks for the replies, everyone! She bailed on me, lol-- but Uden will live to see another day :)
I normally don't post threads such as these, but this could be interesting. Going to a female colleague's place tonight to study. We're both in professional school, mid-early twenties. Beyond making...
Maybe too harsh, but I want to say YSL L'Homme Parfum Intense
Looking for any bottles (new or used) of Le Male before the reformulation. I believe the changed occurred circa 2010-- so any bottles purchased well before that, I'd be interested in.
Bois du Portugal
Not listed here, but mine would be D&G Pour Homme vintage
New Haarlem is pretty high on my most complimented list--but you should know that I often do not wear many/most other niche at school, so my answer here is "biased"
edit: also Noir de Noir
How about Noir de Noir
I'm very inclined to say GPH2 but it's just so fleeting, I'm not sure that it is worthy to have for that sole reason. Everything else about it is almost perfect, however.
I love VT, very smooth and exceptional
Tried this yesterday -- although wholly unoriginal, it's still a decently likeable scent that would probably do well with people my age
All the above and I'd throw in Gucci PHii as well
Philosykos and bal d'afrique
IMO, a cheap, super versatile frag is L`homme by YSL
Hermes Vetiver Tonka, YSL La Nuit De L`Homme, Dior Homme Intense, VC&A Midnight in Paris -- are all good introductory fragrances IMO :)
Hehe you guys are great :) I got 30 mL coming my way hopefully sometime this week, I'm super excited! I've been wearing the heck out of my small collection of NdN samples lately and the love is only...
Hahah, I got a good laugh from this :)))
I was at a party yesterday (wore Aventus, duh!) and felt self-conscious that I may have used too much. I did 4 (smaller, not whole) sprays about 2 hours...
I've been wearing my sample all throughout this fall and I LOVE everything about it. I'm getting great longevity, at least 6-7 hrs. I can't tell much about the projection b/c I'm dabbing it from a...
I can imagine Vetiver Tonka being a great office scent!
Super excited to try this! Hope somebody can chime in :)
Glad to see all the love for this frag
I wore my sample today to a picnic in 80+ degree weather and it garnered 3-4 compliments :)
@pelle: thank you for the VT suggestion. I've always been...
BdP is a lovely scent, and one of my favorites from the house of Creed. Not for my age group (IMO), but we can still appreciate, right?
I went to Saks the other day to try on some Malles and ended up at the Byredo counter. I was particularly attracted to Bal d`Afrique. Reminds me of l`Anonyme -- transient and minimalist -- yet...
I remember wearing this in HS, it was perfect, and def. stands out from all the ADG-types. 2-4 sprays and you're set.
Excited to try this one out!
Although controversial, I think this is a great dress watch: PAM 183 or 210
LOL!! made my day too
Noir de Noir & Tobacco Vanille are the quintessential autumn fragrances IMO.
How's the atomiser in these bottles? Looks to be a pretty generous spray...is this correct? Cheers!

Fleur du Male by JPG
I smelled this one a few weeks at Macy's and loved it. I've been wearing it a lot lately with nonstop compliments. I personally find it very sexy & sensual, and surprised it doesn't get more...
How about one from the Acqua di Parma line? Classic, inoffensive, and fairly close to the skin.
My sentiments exactly! It is pretty feminine, especially on the top. It's such a great scent though, so revitalising. I noticed you're from Chicago too, did you sample it at the boutique downtown or...
I'd go with London or Bleu for this one. If you reschedule to a lunch & coffee during the day, then ADP Assoluta.
I second Midnight in Paris. I can't wait to make my purchase on it soon :)
This is awesome, I can't wait for new splits from you as I didn't get a chance this time around. All the best! :)
I've only done a few videos, but that was when I had a lot more time on my hands. Now I'm studying for Step 1 and other finals. This upcoming summer I plan on making one a week or every other week...
IMO, Philosykos is a very great representation of what you're seeking.
That's very nice of you to donate your time and energy. I haven't seen this one hit department stores yet (at least where I'm at).
Another vote for Neroli Portofino !
Sad to hear the news. I like to liberally apply this one in the summer; I guess I'll have to use it much more wisely :( was going to purchase the 3.4 from sephora but it's out of stock.
Allure Homme (Sport)
Dior Homme Cologne
Versace Man Eau Fraiche
Allure Homme Edition Blanche
Yves Saint Laurent L'Homme
Thank you very much hednic! I always appreciate your comments very much :) I'm taking a little break from reviewing due to major exams coming up within the next 2 months, but afterwards, I can't wait...
I definitely think you should surprise her and NOT wear PE. Keep her guessing and keep her interested. Are you sure Aventus smells effeminate on your person? It tends to be a pretty masculine smell...
I'm revisiting Edition Blanche today in 20*C weather and it's superb. In comparison, I find EB to be much more interesting and immensely less cloying than Bleu's overt synthetic nature.
To my nose there is a considerable difference. I much prefer Essenza, as I find the original to be slightly too powdery and unappealing to my age group (although I myself enjoy it). The neroli and...
A long time ago when I made a purchase from a fellow BNer, he generously included a sample vial of Rive Gauche which I somehow managed to misplace after one wearing. I liked it a lot, but...
SMW is one of my favorite Spring fragrances. My cohort always compliments me when I wear it. It's definitely a unique take on the fresh/ floral category, which happens to be just my kind of fragrance.
I enjoy Armani Prive more as well
Another vote for Fleur du Male
I second hednic's opinion!
Dior Homme .... all by myself x(
I like OV very much. Definitely inoffensive and highly versatile for everyday wear!
I'm looking for Rose Alexandrie by Armani Prive.
Please PM me with anything and we can work something out!
Thanks and regards
I love both very much but would go for Allure in a classroom. I'd go for DH in a more romantic/date scene.
After reading this thread, I decided to give Intensa another try. I really like it-- definitely smells like old-world class. A classic Italian scent; when you wear this scent, you almost certainly...
Aventus or Iris Poudre for me.
I feel Essenza is closer to Assoluta, as both share a lot of the neroli, bergamot and (mandarin) orange. Essenza is my favorite from the line, followed by Assoluta at a close second. I also agree...
I can't wait to try this one! I love lavender based perfumes. What's the consensus on projection/longevity?
I second the Homage Attar. I think if you like it that much you should embrace it as such. Give Alien a try too, granted its somewhat sweet and synthetic, I think it definitely fits your above...
Here it is guys. I thought this fragrance needed more love around here :)
Please let me know what you think! I'm happy with how this video came out :)
DULLAH at one point suggested Zara Sprint 9.58. The pineapple note (maybe a bit sweeter and def. more artificial) is similar throughout without the asky/smoky/leather accord that we see in Aventus....
I'm not a very big fan of Bond, and much rather prefer Creed.
Hugo Boss - Boss Bottled #6 3.3oz (98% full) - SOLD
Jean Paul Gaultier - Fleur du Male 4.2 oz (99.9% full) - SOLD
Creed - Silver Mountain Water 4oz - SOLD
Creed - Green Irish Tweed...
One drop of this from a little sample vial lasts me the entire day easily and tends to off-put all human interaction within a 10ft radius. I decided to get 'back' my friend that gave it to me by...
delete this post please
I know the general consensus of this fragrance on BN is that it's rather dull, I find it quite the opposite. My friend circle compliments me on this one many times, and I myself find it much more...
I feel very honored to receive such nice feedback from you guys, thank you!
@Hednic: Thank you, your opinion means a lot to me!
@Mario: Thank you for taking the time out of your day to write...
This is my third one, and I feel slightly more fluid on camera. I'm wondering if you guys think my timeframes are too short? I don't want to talk about packaging and boxes, but rather the scents,...
Tried this one today. I fell in love with it instantly. I have been looking for a nice floral to replace Iris Poudre and this may just fit the bill.
A slightly metallic floral & citrus top with a...
I've been using Taylor of Old Bond Street Lavender which I like a lot. Used to use Proraso tube at first, but I've been loving Santa Maria Novella and RazoRock XXX lately. Castle Forbes is hard to...
I dislike DHS with a passion, so I'd go with AHS
There is absolutely only one version of GIT, and Creed like to call it Millesime & denotes it as an EDP on the packaging.
I'm thinking my newly acquired Aventus; or maybe Dior Homme.
Merry Christmas all :) Cheers!
L'Ombre dans l'Eau by Diptyque is your best bet
Silver Mountain Water no doubt
So after getting many encouraging comments on my first video, I went back to the drawing board, fixed some things, tweaked my audio/video, and produced my second video on L'Anonyme ou OP. ...
I hear so many great things about this one! This or Santa Maria Novella is my next buy for sure!
Since my last reply on this thread I bought Castle Forbes Lavender and TOBS Lavender. The Castle...
Thank you- I was aiming for a short and concise video without all the needless commentary (like you stated, QWERTYOP). I'm thinking the 3-4minute mark would be perfect, anything more than that would...
Thank you very much for the comments! I did not expect so many words of encouragement, I appreciate it very much. I'm thinking my next review might be Dior Homme Cologne just because it doesn't get...
This is my first ever review/video; I've always had a huge appreciation for the reviewers out there, and it has always been something I've been meaning to do.
With that said, this...
