    Re: Where can you buy Knize Ten?

    Well, if you are in the UK you can go direct to manufactum.co.uk online.
    That is where I bought mine from, no problems, very efficient. Other sources are, of course, no doubt available...

    Re: Bought a fake Cool Water from Amazon

    A google search with the seller company name + "fake" reveals some interesting results.
    It appears that quite a few people have not been happy with their purchases of various frags.

    Lynx "instinct" !

    If I could have posted anonymously it might have been less shameful...
    .. but I tested the high-street "Lynx Instinct" anti-perspirant (Unilever, UK) and was amused to find more than a hint of...
  4. Re: Your most loved OR hated Powerhouse, Uber-Macho fragrances?

    Knize Ten, definitely.

    I'm not sure whether to love it or hate it.
    The vicious top notes tend to make me feel slightly queazy, and I can smell it in a room where used it 2 days before. My bottle...

    Re: Fragrance storage tip

    Actually my cute little fridge is set not-too-cold and is actually sitting at 50F (10C) at the moment (you can tell I'm a scientist; I measured it).
    It is easily adjustable but I'm sure that the...

    Fragrance storage tip

    Now this might be stating the very obvious, if so please excuse me.
    I'm not a wildly extravagant fragrance user, but I do like to keep a good variety on hand for different occasions.
    The problem is...

    Re: Berlin - Germany

    I was very impressed with KaDeWe (Tauentzienstraße 21-24).
    I noticed that they had the Creed range and also Etienne Aigner (which I couldn't find anywhere in the UK).
    Sadly my German speaking is...

    Re: Helmut Lang Cuiron alternative?

    Cuiron is definitely interesting, but I prefer Etienne Aigner "In Leather" Man. This seems to have what I can only describe as a "smoother" leather note to it. On the other hand, it does seem to...

    Re: leather note

    As I understand it, the following are commonly used in the creation of leather notes. The important synthetic one which I'm sure I can now recognise in many formulations is the isobutyl quinoline....

    Re: Obsession Night for men ... worth it?

    I bought a small bottle as an impulsive blind buy because I liked the original Obsession for Men.
    I suppose I was hoping for an interesting variation on the original, but sadly that's not what I...

    Re: Whose More Into Frag -- men or woman?

    I think it's mostly about culture / tradition. In the past, a man with more than a passing interest in fragrances would definitely be considered a bit "sexually suspicious", certainly in this...

    Re: Eau Sauvage Fraicheur Cuir - Where is it???

    What a shame - because I like it a lot, but then again I can't remember the "original".
    I agree, it's not strong except for the initial zesty lemon top note, but I did like the way it seemed to...

    Re: Eau Sauvage Fraicheur Cuir - Where is it???

    Sorry not to mention it before, but being a newbie here I was a bit wary of coming close to "advertising" so thought I'd wait until someone asked.
    Mine came from Knight and Lee in Southsea, a branch...

    Re: Eau Sauvage Fraicheur Cuir - Where is it???

    My local department store in the UK had a tester - I think I was the first one to try it!
    I let it dry down over lunch, went right back and bought it !

    Re: Eau Sauvage Fraicheur Cuir - Where is it???

    I know it's little consolation if you are in the US, but other readers might be interested to know that it is now available in some UK department stores.

  17. Re: Helmut Lang "Cuiron" : Does it survive storage ?

    Well, I've ordered it now - so we'll see !

    I'll "come out" and confess that I do have a penchant for the smell of fresh leather. I sometimes wonder whether the appeal is solely due to scent that...
  18. Re: Helmut Lang "Cuiron" : Does it survive storage ?

    Thanks for the advice, everyone.
    I've managed to order some Cuiron by mail, and also located stocks of Etienne Aigner "in leather", so I'll hopefully be able to compare the two soon.

  19. Helmut Lang "Cuiron" : Does it survive storage ?

    Reading the threads here it seems like Cuiron is well respected amongst the frags with leather notes.
    I'm tempted to buy some - but of course it's been out of manufacture for years now.
    Although...
