mes amis, apply the scent to your chest. Right on the heart.
Why do this? Because it is good.
First off, I think Drakkar Noir is awesome - very unique indeed. I first smelled it in college in the mid-80's. We wore it then and a friend gave me my first bottle when we graduated.
Santos and Paco Rabanne PH - both of which I wear to work.
Paco Rabanne ph
very true - thank you for this observation. Kouros can smell quite strong on the card, but quite delightful on the skin. I am wearing some Givenchy Gentleman right now. The initial opening is...
Any difference between these two? - meaning are they the same cologne just different bottles.
I read in Esquire that he wears Paco Rabanne pour homme
I think new clothes smell like startch. I always assume there is tons of starch in them to keep them looking good in the store. I am not sure which notes will smell like starch.
I use the Whole Foods (365) brand unscented glycerin soap - makes a nice lather and I use it to wash my hair too.
For deodorant, I use Tom's of Maine unscented (original not long-lasting) deodorant...
I agree Zgb; I have thought the same. They are both fougeres and they share a similar quality. There is a certain beautiful richness to the base - perhaps tonka amber or something of the sort that...
I really like Z-14 as well. Excellent stuff. Forget about the price, the advertising, or where you bought it. Get it and enjoy it.
I wear it to work - 1 spray. Excellent stuff
I love Kouros as well - some call it the white devil :) I too was repulsed the first time I smelled it. It was much different on my skin. I only use one spray to the chest - even 2 sprays can be a...
odd that Rive Gauche is not in there...
Tom's of Maine unscented deodorant stick (the "original care" not the "long-lasting" one)
I certainly haven't been stockpiling. I have a bottle of regular Kouros and recently picked up Fraicheur. I have received compliments when wearing Kouros. It does really smell beautiful on my...
Halston Z-14. You can get the stuff for practically free. A wonderful scent that never disappoints.
I have 2 Caswell Massey talcs - Patchouli and Jockey Club. I got them both cheap at Marshalls or TJ's. Occasionally I check for them there. I prefer the Patchouli - it is a nice addition to a...
Royall Vetiver is a cheap yet respectable alternative to GV
I think this is an important point. I have not smelled the aftershave, but I think this is what generally gets all the good reviews (from what I've read). I had the EDT and it was sharp and harsh -...
Kouros (yes at work) One shot to the chest.
I smell magnificent.
Today at work, I am wearing Kouros, the white devil himself. Just one spray, so he doesn't turn on me.
I am wearing Kouros at work today - one spray - so awesome
Second the Z-14. Never disappoints, never hurts the wallet.
I am 41 and have had minor to moderate acne over the years. Maybe it has subsided with age, but here is my current regimen that appears to keep it in check:
No caffeine (it affects my sleep...
Tom's of Maine Unscented Deodorant.
check out perfumeworldwide.com - you can get samples for 2.99 which includes shipping. I also second Sephora - if its not busy, they can usually make you some small spray samples.
I second the Royall vetiver - cheap in price, but a decent scent. I have come to realize vetiver is not my thing. I have bottles of Guerlain Vetiver and Royall Vetiver gathering dust if anyone is...
My ex-girlfriend gave complements on Kouros on several occasions. The key is to not overapply. One spray on the chest will do just fine. 2 tops. I find M7 is the same 1 spray is enough. I think...
this is just the difference in rounding the decimal place:
100ml is 3.381402 oz
Similar experience: I kept smelling PMR on my hand after 3 days and I was thinking, "damn, this stuff is strong." Turns out I got some on my watch band when I sprayed it at the store. The jury is...
I have owned all three.
I swapped the Antaeus
Santos is nice, but not great
Kouros IMO is outstanding and would be my pick.
I always found GV to be fickle - or volatile. I had a bottle from 99 that went bad on me. I swear it smells different if you give the bottle a couple of shakes. Sacrelige perhaps, but give it a...
Yes I think it's the vanilla. Habit Rouge to me smells like a woman's perfume. Not that this is good or bad - it's just the impression I get.
For me, I cant wear the vanilla. I am into the...
Chaps - old version
I got a big bottle of Royal Copenhagen if anyone wants to swap, trade, or buy. PM me.
And yes, it is very powdery.
Is there a cologne that has a strong white sage note? Like the Native American smudge stick - if you've had the chance to smell that. Sweet and sweaty.
I would say the Coty Musk is more like Kiehl's...
Kouros was referred to as the "White Devil" in another post. I love this name, and I love wearing the White Devil. I find it very versatile and wear it in many situations including work.
don't dismiss Kouros until you wear it on your skin. This is when the magic comes alive
I understand. I think Hugo Boss number One has this same quality.
havent decided for tonight yet...
(the other vetiver)
Polo and even better Polo Crest
Azzaro pour homme
Hugo Boss number One
Drakkar and Chaps in College 86-89
Had a bottle of Z-14 after graduation 1990
Got a bottle of Guerlain Vetiver when I was married c. 2000
Discovered basenotes when I got divorced 2005
yes, I agree with your observation. The scent on paper can be very different than the skin. I think a spray on the wrist is also different from a full wearing of a fragrance on the...
I got a sample of Colonia and Assoluta at CO Bigelow's
Also be aware that concentration does not necessarily mean a stronger smelling scent. The sillage and duration are also dependant on the specific scent oil/molecule or whatever it is. I am not sure...
Before I shell out my cash for a bottle of Dunhill 1934, I would like to know if there is anything similar, but perhaps a bit stronger i.e. more sillage.
And secondly, has anyone seen...
Quoted from tvlampboy's review of Polo Crest:
"And yes, everything you've heard about Jacques Bogart's Chevignon is true -- it's a dead ringer for Polo Crest, or at least really damn close."
Santos de Cartier
Today I wore Royall Vetiver to work.
I sampled some Boss Number One after dinner
I would be interested in trying "Sniper," "Wanted" and "Propaganda" on the names alone.
I am on the Kouros bandwagon as well (thanks BN!)
The smell can be strong on the card, but it is so nice on the skin.
I dont find it overpowering at all
I will purchase based on your advice. I am wearing Polo Crest today, but my supply is dwindling.
Thanks for everyone's replies
Let us know what it smells like. It appears that the same bottle and package can contain 2 totally different fragrances (old or new). I have a sample vial coming and I am eager to see which one I...
Is the one pictured in Atrac's post the one you have?
I receive a fake bottle of Old Spice aftershave from an online vendor. I could tell by the font on the bottom of the box and something in the middle notes was off by about 5% - an obvious fake.
Has anyone tried the vetiver?
I've tried a spray at the store and I like it, but I am wondering about the longevity.
the bottle in the pictures (both old and new) is tall and flat and with a silver cap. the box is shown as light brown - the color of a paper bag.
I was interested in the one that...
Azzaro has a nice anise note.
Azzaro is heavy and clean all at the same time if you know what I mean.
hello fragrance friends ,
Based on recent reviews I am interested in Chevignon for men. I have a small sample on order.
I have two questions about Chevignon. Sometimes it is listed as...
I've tried them, but I don't really like tobacco scents. I guess that's another thing Clay and I don't have in common...
the marketing of fragrances actually turns me off. I am fairly conservative, so I don't like the ads. I go by smell alone...
Herrera for men
I am answering your question about spraying on the wrist or chest. I always spray on the chest - right in the middle of my chest and on the base of my neck. I find this...
I think FB is Filene's Basement...
'round these parts FB is a little more expensive than TJM or Marshalls. The fragrances are a little better organized at FB. TJM and Marsh. require a little...
Always try before you buy or you'll end up like me with bottle you will never wear.
I really like Kouros - it is surprising, because it smells strong out of the bottle or on paper. I think the...
Yes perfume is art - art is best defined by the effort, skill, experience and imagination of its creator.
Non est ars quae ad effectum casu venit. - That which achieves its effect by accident is...
In the "old days" they suggested a one-page resume - that ship has sailed. The rules have changed. I show up with clean resumes on heavy cotton paper, and I can't give one away. Everyone already...
I heard about this study on the radio - NPR?
I defiitely applies to many consumer choices. Higher price is considered better - better quality. This is not always the case. And sometimes you get...
Smell for yourself. I was not impressed by them (there is also a vetiver in the collection as well). I also recall seeing that stuff for less.
Sometimes you can find Azzaro pour Homme and TJ's -...
Fendi Uomo lasts quite a long time.
I thought it ws widely known that pimps wore Pierre Cardin. I suppose M7 would be suitable
I have been debating whether I like Guerlain Vetiver for close to 10 yrs...
I have come to realize that there are few fragrances that no one likes - basically you can always find a positive review. Occasionally, the positive reviews get "hyped" and the reader (like myself)...
I was 20 in college and I bought a bottle of Chaps.
Halston Z-14 is pretty grungy
Fendi Uomo has leather as does Halston z-14
(sorry if someone already mentioned)
I keep my collection in 2 separate batches: the ones I like and plan to keep and the ones I want to get rid of. I try to give away the ones I don't want.
The other day I transferred AdG and Azzaro...
I owned Bulgari pH but gave it away. I liked the scent ok, but found it lacking in the strength department. Overall a very class scent.
I have also tried the Extreme version,at TJMaxx but did...
I have a 50 ml bottle of Ungaro III for swaps or cheap...
never tried Egoiste
www.perfumeworldwide.com has the "try before you buy" 2.99 sample vials you are looking for.
I thought of Bulgari pH immediately
Vera Wang for men stays pretty close too
I have a 3.4oz (100mL) bottle of Tabac Original EDT 90+% full - for the taking
You, my friend, have excellent taste.
I would add:
Paco Rabanne pH
I will throw Kouros in as well
Absolutely excellent thread, please continue!!
IMO good fragrance will never compensate for bad breath.
"Always remember you are unique; just like everyone else." - that's funny
Work: Paco pH, Equipage, Guerlain Vetiver, Kouros
Play: M7, Polo Crest, Fendi Uomo, Kouros
Love: Kouros, Envy
Paco Rabanne pH
As I recall, this is a big bottle. I tried it before and would really like to try it again - as would many others. To spread the joy, I would take what I need (15mL or so) and pass on the rest in...
I was out shopping yesterday and I tried some PE on a card, some sprayed on my hand by accident. Later, at TJMaxx, I took a spray of Eau de Grey Flannel on my other hand. I thought it...
I bought Kouros this year - highly satisying.
