Yeah I definitely scored two bottles of Acqua Di Gio for 13 bucks each.
It went down to 9 dollars each the day after I purchased.
And then sold out the same day. Then got restocked and is now 60...
Hednic is great. Super nice guy. F the h8rz
Yep they raised a bunch of their niche prices by 40-50 bucks each (Atikinsons, Perris Monte Carlo, Creed, CDG, HDP.. even their Montales went up)
The site officially sucks now, there's no reason...
Their website is among the best I've used. The mobile experience is tight. Probably a database goof on all their image file names. Shouldn't hurt their SEO too hard i don't think.
Yeah several of my friends have purchased happily from them, legit products. Not an evil business. But those bottles look way too weird to me. Possible they got their stock from a bad source for cdg...
Yeah i was totally right about this hehe
The top part of the bottle near where the sprayer comes up looks like it's curved upwards -- normal bottles are clean cut and don't go upwards like that. The "2" looks further to the right than any...
Let me know how that turns out. I was eyeing it but the bottle looks fake. Same for Wonderwood.
They make new creed sprayers now or is it just aventus?
I like wall street the best of that lot
I'm hella sketched out by this site because the prices are too good to be true, and look at this Aventus sprayer?
All frags kept dark and cool. Prices include shipping. Paypal.
3.4oz Amouage Journey Woman sprayed once (tester box, has cap, has scratch see pics) - $140
3.4oz Acqua di Gio (Acqua for Life...
Wanted to bump this as I recently purchased an Aoud Leather by Montale International Design, and it's a much, much weaker scent than the Montale Paris version. I sprayed it 4 hours ago and it's...
I just had an interesting scenario play out in real life:
I am an actual merchant 2000 years ago (time machine, was able to build it after being inspired by Aventus). I'm finna capture some fine...
Not what you asked, but ELDO Rien reminds me of something cdg could have released. Worth checking out if you like the incensey offerings, or scents like cdg's Hinoki. Cdg's been a bit of a...
Yep, almost happened with my old Epic. Had it happen to Gucci envy once, fixed it, happens to one of my gf's Caron bottles, but the worst is my Gucci ph cap. The thing is locked in the cap and WILL...
Is shipping free at 20 dollars exactly? The programmer in me is having a hard time discerning :)
OP, don't be mad that some of us enjoy Kouros and you don't.
26 years old :)
No, it's quite obvious and great :)
And i think we all know the only proper answer to that is Aventus, but I'm willing to hear some alternatives.
Eddie, that's why you apply liberally beforehand.
Also I'm not talking about covering up the smell afterwards, I'm talking like yo, I'm about to drop the most epic deuce, what frag should i put...
Yeah i was gonna say aventus
Was taking a dump earlier and it got me wonderin.
It's not this :)
It's this, plus not being able to take another "what's a good pantydropper" "something something aventus something" "dhi or lidge" thread again
Diptyque L'eau de L'eau, or Geranium Odorata
Where's the amouage? Serge?
It's a good scent, memoir, but this isn't the right thread to discuss it.
Whoa. I made this thread six years ago. I'd hate myself if i met me from six years ago.
I'm now middle of the fence about the scent. I am disappointed to hear about the reformulations though....
Er, maybe it was cosmo. It was attached to cosmo, which i think crystals is if i remember? I could walk from my room to the shop without going outside.
There's a beauty shop in crystals that has amouage, mfk, creed, but in limited quantity.
Doubt the Guerlains are actually getting pulled. More ofyen than not, that's just a sales tactic to scare...
Dolce and Gabbana light blue for women, or Marc Jacobs Daisy. Your search is over! :)
Big fan of amouage, but not thrilled with Chong's character and his severance of the brand's ties to Oman.
I highly recommend you try Epic Woman and Fate Woman. Crown jewels, those. From the...
Doubt it'll phase him; he didn't make it :)
Isn't Gucci ph ii after the Tom Ford era?
I just smelled black afgano for the first time yesterday, and found it very similar to Cuirs. Cuir is a very dry norlimbanol bomb. I liked it at first but it wore thin on me over time. Honestly, not...
Or Aqua Unversalis Forte.
both of these are like, really expensive tho.
Creed Selection Verte
This is still being sold online at Dior's website and in Neimans stores.. are we totally sure it was discontinued?
Serge lutens ambre sultan (can be had for 65 bucks easily)
Caron pour un homme
And then you're missing a good floral, but i can't think of any cheap ones off the top of my...
Tom Ford, La Nuit, and Issey.
Every three hours? Olfactory fatigue, dude.
I don't find it similar to DHI. Thought it was more similar to DH. The Dior is superior imo.
I have a new bottle of epic with magnetic cap (thanks pman!) and they definitely didn't water it down.
Diptyque Volutes and Kilian Back to Black are closer than not. I prefer Chergui though
Fate, Epic, Memoir, Ubar, possibly Interlude
You'll probably like Memoir man and Journey man, possibly Opus Vi and Interlude.
I agree with Spoombung. A good scent for sure, but not a safe blind buy by any means.
that's chanel allure ph, not chanel ph :)
How did you get it for 86 bucks? I can only see it for 114 on BE
For others to smell, yes, but if you want to test longevity, spray only on arms or wrists (topside) so the scent doesn't become white nose to you
- - - Updated - - -
Not just for this frag but...
Longevity only slightly worse, nothing major. Still huge longevity. Don't spray your neck or chest and you'll see. You're experiencing olfactory fatigue.
Yes, but minor reformulation. New allure sport(I think ca 2009) has more aquatic top note, orange top note, less pepper, less / almost no vetiver, less cedar, more Tonka. Smells more like the generic...
Himalaya best by far. MI in winter will leave you wanting more. Himalaya is beautiful in winter and summer.
Ugh. This sucks, I'm almost out of my 2007 bottle with the sticker made in Italy. Where can I get another vintage version?
I've been out of the game for so long, is Vetiver Oriental now on the exclusive line only as well?
Do you cats foresee it jumping in price in a couple years and becoming a collector's item like many discontinued A&F frags?
I love Antaeus!
Petrucci your post implies that the scent is bad. But there directory reviews are 68:20:16, Positive:Neutral:Negative. I can't believe it!
3.4 oz EDT Spray (Tester)
Sale Price - $18.43
Retail Price - $31.00 (tester?)
Ok cool but what's your opinion on the matter? Have you smelled either?
I had the pleasure of receiving a sample of this scent from the Perfume House recently and I loved it, but as I continue to wear it I can't help but think it smells like something from Abercrombie...
I hate youtube reviews of fragrances. Yuck. If we had a smelltube or something, that'd be great.
If you're getting your idea of the thread's content from the first paragraph, there's no way to make an informed post on it. You haven't read his post yet.
Chanel No. 19
lol. didn't read the opening post or check the post date.
Parfum d'Empire Iskander definitely.
Recently been loving L'eau de L'eau myself.
So the limited edition bottle has different juice? confirmed?
I don't understand the keyword comparisons but w/e.
Wasn't aware that Allure Sport was a best seller..? I've never smelled anyone wear it but me, saw a guy buy it once but that's it, and sales...
Always hated Brit, smelled it again when I was at nordies the other day and I was totally blown away. To start with, it reminded me a LOT of Rose 31 for some reason. The new packaging was much more...
Someone is a new-gen Chanel fanatic ;D
why are there so many reviews comparing these two? they are so dissimilar. even looking at the note pyramids and not having smelled them before. am I alone in thinking this?
Good question johnny
In the context of my original post your post makes no sense
Figured out what la nuit reminds me of, some loccitane frag, can't remember which or too drunk to look it up
Imo you tone Exxo the lavender in Gris clair and add some smoke to the sweet warm base and you have gentleman, but I wish you would step back from that ledge my oriend!!!!!!
YSL la nuit
the one gentleman
...I'm not used to such good releases come so frequently!
Maybe you're like WHAT but straight up those two are p solid. While no crazy or offensive niche types,...
Haha I love where this has gone.. name change and all. I was so confused by the first post change at first, I thought you made another thread about the two colognes I was like -_______-
No offense but you just make a million threads about colognes and you just need to COMMIT to one for once. I don't recommend Gucci PH I at 18 years old. I'm 23 and most girls my age don't think they...
I prefer the first one though.
You have been on the forum for four months
I've been here for four years
And you have nearly as many posts as I do
800 of which are questions about scents you aren't ever going to bother to smell
nvm found it
Too bad nobody at my college knows anything more than department store shiz
I found this a while back but don't have it bookmarked anymore. It has an odd name, possibly with a t or z in it? Something slightly bizarre like that. And it sold Encre Noire, Antaeus (once upon a...
lmao @ OP
did not read the rest of topic
I would like to update my previous post in this ancient thread to be: Creed Himalaya.
I looove nutmeg, I've been cooking with it a lot lately and it makes me miss Visit
Hey y'all. Sorry I don't come round much anymore. Hella busy and not much moolah to be sampling perfumes with.
But I was wondering. Does anyone else find CDG Kyoto similar to Azzaro Visit? I never...
HUGE fan of the packaging. Excellent design.
JKR (the design group behind it) is pretty legit. Here's their article about Sartorial's design....
A surprising number of people - even vets - aren't aware of olfactory fatigue and never get the opinions of others.
Before they muted the vetiver and amped up the aquatic opening.
The balance is a little off now. I just sprayed some of my old 1.7 oz bottle (almost gone, been saving it since I know it's much...
Bottle looks amazing.
