Hi Redneck. So, I tried that, but it didn't work. The search results contained Allure OR Homme OR Sport, but not necessarily all of them. Does it really work for you?
This may be a dumb question, but how do I search for two terms together?
Example: I want to search for "Allure Sport". This search gives me threads with "Allure" only, threads with "Sport" only and...
Well, it's not blackberry, and I don't know how oud or opoponax smells. But it's probably the frankincense.
Idk if this is what you're looking for, but Jubilation for men kinda makes me sad. don't know why though
La Nuit is not fresh, so if you're looking for that, forget La Nuit. (But it gets compliments like crazy, though)
Also, Issey has a downside: the first hour. It's too damn floral,...
Well, no, actually I am ordering Bond no 9 samples from them :) as it's quite hard to find a site that sells it and ships to Brazil.
But I'll look into these Bentley too, as everyone is talking...
Alright thanks guys! I will order from them too :)
So, the new Montauk is the same juice as Andy Warhol Montauk? Have anyone tried both?
I saw some samples I want there, but I'm not sure the site is legit:
Have anyone ever bought from them?
Have you guys heard of this fragrance?
I'm thinking about layering it with Blanche :D
But I can't find it in Ava Luxe's site
Hmm...I don't find Set sail st. barts too coconutty, to be honest. I was expecting something with a strong and edible smell of coconut.
I've read somewhere that applying Allure Blanche with some coconut lotion or oil(I don't remember) resulted in a heavenly smell, and I'm willing to try it.
Can anybody recommend me a good coconut...
Hey inc0gnito, sorry if you said it already and I didn't understand, but how was longevity/projection with The One from Palermo?
How much $$$ have you spent on your fragrances so far ?
If you have so many of them what's your plan in the future ?. Keep buying ? Selling ? Trading ?
Yes, yes, yes
Will you be able to...
Oh, I see. That sucks man :/
I second that. Specially the 2012 reformulation!
It's very versatile, can be worn day or night and smells unique to me ;]
No! Terrible stuff man :0 I almost puked all the times I tested it. But that's only me, you know.
It's a very bitter smell to my nose, actually it's the most vile stuff I tested up to date, no...
Same story here man! I still don't find myself wearing "old man" stuff. The most daring scent I wear is Fahrenheit, but that's a great exception I can make :)
I ordered a vial of Burberry London...
Yes! This feeling is only growing recently...I'm trying to limit my collection and I only have 11 bottles, from which 2 I'm trying to sell now and 2 I'll be giving away soon(As soon as I find...
I believe the older we get, the more we reach for woody and heavy fragrances. Don't know why, though
Hey guys, what happened to Hiro's channel?
Nice! I would suggest these for you too:
-Dior Homme Sport 2012
-Versace pour Homme
-Versace man eau fraiche
But specially DHS 2012. Give it a try, it's marvelous and unique, in my opinion
So, which one did you end up getting? :D
Wow! I just posted this here and my package arrived hahaha :D
Umbeliavable...but thanks anyway Palmbeach
I'm from Brazil and I bought some samples from fragrancevials.com, they shipped my samples and gave me the tracking number on USPS: LC668019443US.
The thing is: it has been three weeks...
I voted Dior Homme Sport (2012) because it smells awesome, and Bleu's incense drive me mad...I can't stand it.
But Bleu is stronger, if you're worried only about longevity/projection. DHS 2012...
Yep. Probably the best option, also because I'm not staying there that long to wait for it to be shipped and all that...
But if I lived there, I would surely try my luck at amazon haha
What about the risks of getting a fake? :/
Shit, really? :( How much is the tax?
Well, I'm going to Las Vegas and New York...I could buy it in either city
Thanks for the info man :)
Yeah, I've tried it too...but, I don't know...it just doesn't seem to do the same thing for me as Fierce does. Maybe I'm biased, but Legend doesn't seem to have the...
Hello, does anyone know how much are they charging for a bottle of Fierce 6.7oz at the Abercrombie stores? I'm going to the US soon and I need to know how much I will spend :)
On their site, a 6.7oz...
Hello fellows basenoters!
I live in BRAZIL and I want to buy samples of DESIGNER fragrances, mostly, but this has proven to be a bit harder than I thought.
I can't buy from eBay because I don't...
I think that this is legit.
I don't know many scents that fit your description, but Black XS is a nice one
If the young girl is beforehand attracted to you, Fahrenheit will be liked by her too as a side effect :D
Just be sure to not overspray, keep it very light on the trigger.
I don't see the point of buying a huge bottle like that. It's very probable that the juice will go bad before you reach the half of the bottle...
How's the smell?
Chanel and Calvin Klein...but it would be hard to let Dior go
Alright then, I guess I was a little obsessed with 2012 lol.
Thanks so much for your answers SteelerOpera! You were really helpful!
I'll be looking to buy a bottle of 2013 then, it might be a good...
Oh crap...and I'm only going to visit US in August. There it goes my hope to buy 2012 :/
But thanks for the info :)
Well, I guess I'll have to test 2013 and see if I like it. Is it similar to Acqua...
Nice! Hey, I've seen comments saying that 2013 is similar to Acqua di Gio, is that true? If it is I'll be a little let down, because I own AdG already...
Oh, and I got to ask SteelerOpera, when...
What's the color of the 2013 JUICE? Is it blue, or just the bottle?
Can it stain my clothes?
Top: Blueberry, Cherry, a very subdued Sweet Lime and mixed berries notes
Mid: Coconut, Honey, Coffe, Vanilla
Base: Chocolate, Caramel, Sandalwood, Musk, Tonka bean and maybe a hint of Tobacco...
Haha sure man, life is already hard...there's no point in taking it too seriously
C'mon, give the guy a break...not every thread should be serious here :D
Excellent article! Everybody on basenotes should read this, as I'm sure that there are many "cologne guys" around here :D
Like I said, I even had problems with the fresh ones like 212 Men, Acqua di Gio and Fierce.
Tonight I wore 212 and applied 1 spray to neck and 1 under shirt, it seemed to work that way. It wasn't...
Yeah, that's something I can't do, really...I live with my parents and my dad is allergic to fragrances.
Poor dad, how did he end up having a fraghead son? LOL
Check out this thread talking about Iconic by Marks & Spencer:
There are people saying that it's really close....
Wow, talk about an aggressive stance hahaha ;) just kidding
Well, sometimes when I spray two times my girlfriend tells me that it's too strong. One of my friends told me so too, once.
Hmm...never thought of it. This might be a good idea. Where do you guys buy atomizers from?
I usually drive my car and give a ride to some people, when going out (like, my girlfriend, friends, etc.)
And of course, as a fragrance lover, I put on a fragrance and head out to the night.
Versace man eau fraiche
Nice! Thanks for the input.
SteelerOpera I saw your review, that's what got my curiosity on 2013 version.
Which one would you choose between Ck Summer 2013 and 2012?
BTW, on the moment I saw your username here I figured...
I'm very interested in this new version too, as I heard good things about the 08'! If anybody smell it, give us a heads up :)
That's exactly what I'll do :D
But then again, my father is allergic to any fragrances and he gets heavy headaches from them.
So, as I'm going with my parents, I won't be able to wear fragrances...
Thanks for the answers everyone :)
Also, have any of you tried the 2013 version of Ck Summer?
I'm not so sure I will be able to find the 2012 version in August :/
I'm going to the US in August and I'm thinking of buying a summer fragrance for me.
Which one would be best for summer days and nights in your opinion, guys?
Lacoste Essential or Ck One Summer 2012?
Civet, Incense, and something on Le Male that I just don't know what it is...maybe lavender?
You gave me a mini heart attack hahaha
Considering A*Men and its flankers, which one is the most chocolatey of them? :beer:
MikeJ, I don't see this as a mature fragrance...but it doesn't have a sporty/younger vibe as well.
Can't you sample it before you buy? Ebay has tons of samples always :)
Hey, if you want more longevity, try applying it to your hair a couple times...it may help too
I have to try that man! Thanks for the tip!
Funny thing is I can't even find an unscented lotion here LOL...I'll keep looking for it, though.
Yeah, I don't think that I got a fake or a diluted decant, because it lasted a long time, but close to the skin =/
But I'm willing to give it a go, I want a full bottle of Fierce :laugh:
Yeah, I did some tests from the decant I had here...but when I wore it, it didn't project THAT well :/
Even so, the smell is very good...
By the way, I'm from Brazil...can you guys point me out...
hahahahah that's where I went wrong then...I'm hitting the gym right away!
That's interesting man...I think I'll purchase a full bottle and see how it goes for me. BTW, is it projecting better...
Well, I did my last wearing on Fierce last night at a party and got the same results: it lasts a good amount of time as a skin scent, but I asked my gf if she could smell it from an arm's length...
212 Sexy Man is supposedly similar to Le Male
*Hugo Element by Hugo Boss (2009) (I love this fragrance, even though it gets bashed everywhere. I never got a full wear of it, so can't comment on longevity and projection.)
@atrac: Wow man! That's quite a story...I hope it really is olfactory fatigue for me too...
Coming to think of it, on the day I wore it and nobody noticed it, I was at a party on the terrace of a...
Yeah, I need to sniff MB Legend, but I heard it's watered down Fierce, so it doesn't sound too exciting...
@knoxthis: I thought about fatigue too, but if others can't smell me too, it can't be...
Rick, I tried Egoiste Platinum too...but they are not very similar, in my opinion.
It's too mature, I don't know...I prefer Fierce's smell.
Neil4Speed, Yeah man, I just can't believe some people...
Everyone says that Fierce projects like crazy and lasts for hours, but that's not what's happening to me.
I apply 6 or 7 sprays total, to my neck, back of the neck, hair, arms, shirt...
Thanks Lorien! Yes, I want sincere opinions like yours lol :laugh:
Keep them coming girls, please :)
Oh, and about the original Allure...I don't know, I didn't care much for it. Not that...
Hello girls, I'm a 25 guy and I want to know your opinions on three fragrances.
I've sampled a lot and narrowed it down to only three I would like to have as my signature, just choose the one that...
Hmm really? I thought young chicks dig Fierce more...but it seems that AHS is winning here LOL
Are you guys considering just young girls or every girl?
I don't want you guys to tell me which one smells better...I just wanna know which one has gotten you MORE COMPLIMENTS from the girls! Allure Homme Sport or A&F Fierce?
Which one does not fail to...
Well, I am a little bit chocoholic :D
But what I wanted to do is a fragrance with a chocolate base similar to A*Men...a super strong chocolate base (ooh that chocolate note).
I imagine that A*Men...
Thank you very much, Chris! I'll go to the chemicals shop and ask what kind of oils they sell. Then I'll report back here :)
Thanks Lauren, I'll try to mix it with patchouli too.
Also, how can I make a chocolate scent last longer with a powerful chocolate base? (Sort of like Angel Men)
This is my first time here in the DIY forum. Reading the topics here has made me want to do a fragrance for myself (Yes, I've read the Primer).
I'll try to make a fragrance...
Wow, that's strange...because Marc Jacobs was released in 2002 too. Maybe they used some other thing to simulate a Fig Leaf note? Is pure Fig (not the leaf) banned too?
I read in multiple places that Fig (or Fig leaves, idk) smells like a coconut note...Marc Jacobs for Men uses Fig to give a coconut impression (I actually never smelled MJ, I'm only repeating what I...
I'm sorry to revive this thread, but I too am looking for a great "sprite-like-refreshing" fragrance...preferably designer.
Any other suggestions?
I tried this Nivea too, but it didn't work for me...still got yellow stains ;/
I had the same problem! Yellow stains on my t-shirts, specially on white ones.
Now, I use MILK OF MAGNESIA instead of deodorant. Believe me, it works very well! (And I live in Brazil, hot days all...
Are you really serious about this??
I'm a bit scared of how you guys have a lot of money to spend :|
I'd never spray something to take a shower right after...
I don't mean no disrespect, though :]
Well, I just ended up buying it from a friend. I got a half-full 100ml bottle.
Now I'm praying that I can stick to this one as a signature, or even alternate 212 with 2 more scents, like Renato...
I prefer the original one, but Absolute is still great! If you like incense fragrances, you'll probably love it.
@SteelerOpera: Best reply to this thread lol
I see that you like powerful projection fragrances!
So, I recommend:
212 VIP (a bit similar to 1 Million)
Black XS (maybe, it's not a sillage monster)
