No worries, Scripture. I try and reply to all my inquiries, but this has been the busiest year of my life and sometimes people get missed. I've had so many requests asking me how to begin to make...
Luckyscent has indeed contacted to pick up my brand, but for the time-being, Im exclusive through MiN NY. For how long, remains to be seen. But so far, that's what it is.
- - - Updated - - -
It’s true, a lot of releases this year, but I don’t think they will disappoint. Wood Haven was a scent in the works for over a year now, and Fields of Rubus, close to 8 months. Im...
Wow, a real honor to be mentioned in the same paragraph as Creed and M7! Thanks so much,
Thanks so much for the interest! Itís been difficult keeping up with all the fragrance outlets, especially Basenotes. Im currently working on a website where all the information for...
I like it cause I like the original. The Summer Edition smells just like the original, just a bit lighter and a hair fresher. Still smells heavy and powdery for summer though. But that's just my nose.
Thanks and back at ya.
Did your decant arrive yet? Were you in on one of the splits?
I was there most of the weekend and loved my time in NY. MiN is a top-notch class act and Im honored to be in with them.
Hoping to get my tail down there this Fall.
It'll be officially released in March.
True, but it feels darn strange to wear a "sexy" scent to church! :)
Yep, it's shipping out tomorrow!
Thanks everyone. I really appreciate the kind words and support. I really do.
Very cool news, MiN New York, a very nice shop in Soho is picking up my fragrance line. We are looking to see product in their stores in a couple weeks. Super excited!
I've never smelled CdG 3. Only the original and 2. I love CdG perfumes!
The cloves is just a supporting note. Not super prominent as in say, Musc Ravageur.
Yes, I use only essential oils and absolutes with very little aroma chemicals in these two scents. For the scents, I go with my instincts and trials with a group of people from work and online. Not...
Absolutely! I try to hook up people that buy bottles. :)
Understand. PM me and I can give you the details. Thanks,
Thanks guys. Please feel free to post your thoughts on the scent. I love to hear feedback, good or bad.
Unfortunately, the samples arent free. By the amounts of requests, I just cant handle it financially.
1ml vials with sticks.
Absolutely. No plans on discontinuing it yet. ;)
Hi, and yes, created by me. Thanks!
Thought I'd let you guys know about a couple new scents. Please PM me if you'd like to sample these.
Thanks so much, Quiptos!
I can ship anywhere.
It's very, very unlike any Montale I've smelled.
Wanna sample it? I really think this scent is, "oud for those that dont like oud" ! I know, it makes no sense but does.
Thanks so much!
Good question. Actually, like with my writing (I write mostly short stories), they seem to be inspired off real life events, but I actually don’t read a ton. I try not to get influences if possible,...
If your sample didnt go out on Saturday, it's going out tonight after work.
Appreciate the feedback.
Thanks everyone, I really appreciate the support.
Iím not into marketing so Iím really just going to let the people that try the fragrance be the voice for it. Like all scents, itíll either be...
Well, I finally got the ethanol from Snowdrift Farms. Never did hear from them, but I got a tracking number after the bottle was delivered. haha
I got my ethanol from Save on Scents in about 7...
In the meantime, I just ordered a small bottle from Save On Scents. I'll post how that goes.
I dont know how Snowdrift stays in business. Crazy.
I placed an order with them almost two weeks ago for 1 bottle of denatured alcohol. Iíve called them and left a message and emailed twice on the status of my order. Zero response. This hasnít been a...
I love coffee and pepper notes.
On paper, it reminds me a little of Le Male without the lavender note. Havent tested it on skin though.
Yep, makes sense. I guess that's what Im trying to achieve, is more depth. Sidenote with C-12 MNA, it works great with Habanolide. Really amps up the white musk accord.
Tommy Girl and I have no idea why. haha
Also, Womanity. Love that scent on my wife.
Yep, I have C-12 MNA, and man, that's a strong chemical. I have to dilute that one to around 1% or less to be tolerable. What's weird is that I dont get the "dry amber" tone. More floral smelling to...
Good suggestions. I have Iso E, but not Pharaone, which sounds like something Im looking for. Fuzzy and a little sweet.
This might sound strange, but what notes can give a fragrance a ďfuzzyĒ smelling sorta vibe? Im trying to give my concoction a fuzzy radiating quality, but havenít been able to achieve it yet. Thanks,
Did you get a new formulation? lol
Check out Step 8 LOL
Im betting it'll just be the grapefruit and mint on top of the standard violet/Fahrenheit base like the Summer version. Im not expecting much from this, but like all new scents, Im curious to smell...
Power reminds me of a sport type of fragrance. Very safe scent. Actually, too safe.
I reviewed By Man a while back if anyone's interested in hearing my thoughts on it. It's not the end all of be all. But it does smell nice.
CK Man has a really nice violet note. Also, I smell a heavy, dark green violet in Dior's Fahrenheit.
Im not repulsed by Michael Kors for Men, but there's something in there (a slightly sweet floral note) that doesnt sit well with me. And yeah, it lasts over 10 hours on my skin.
...why do the...
Hahaha, sorry about that....not my intent, my man! I really do like L'eau a lot. I just might pick it up this summer if I find it cheaper. Yeah, $60 isnt bad. :)
Comme des Garcons
I reviewed this scent (it's great btw) not too long ago. I wouldnt pay $70 for it, but $50 or under.
As an active Basenoter and Youtube reviewer, I thought I'd share my latest review of the classic Vetiver. Im sure a lot of people here dont know that I review there.
Not many others, if any at your prom will have New Haarlem on. I say rock that one!
Have fun and be safe!
Yeah, it's loaded with Iso E Super which is a smooth cedar/sandalwood scent. Very prominent in the drydown.
The opening of the parfum is much richer and intense, but after a few hours, they both drydown very similar. I've grown to love that intense orange/grapefruity opening.
Both last pretty much the...
It's a good all year round scent for me.
"It has real bits of Panther in it, so you know it's good."
Classier? EB by far.
Definitely check out Abercrombie and Fitch Woods. Very classic smelling and long lasting for an edc.
Yeah, I find that Rive Gauche is a slightly more mature version of Black Jeans, but Black Jeans has this interesting herbal quality that's not in Rive Gauche.
No sir, it's not.
Hey thanks. Im getting ready for my next review and it has a nice mint note. Guerlain Homme L'eau. This stuff is really nice. And the mint note lasts a good deal on my skin. Plus the citrus is...
I dont really care for either, but if had to pick, I'd go with Faconnable.
So I picked up a bottle for cheap of Guerlain Vetiver for possible trade bait, but kick me in the pants and call me grandpa, this stuff isnt bad at all. The first hour is a really dated smell of...
When in doubt, carry a small decant.
Unless I spray the front of my shirt, most scents last in the 6 hour range. It's not just olfactory fatigue because if a person that hasnt been around me cant...
Not to mention, she has kick-butt writing skills.
At least it didnt change for the worst! :)
I think it's a very fresh, clean scent. The woodiness comes in on my skin after about an hour, but I still smell a lemony aroma with it.
I love Aventus.
Pffft, call me when Le Male Sport hits the shelves....
I smelled Roadster Sport over the weekend. Im not a fan of the original, and Sport smells cleaner and fresher to me. It's nothing unique, but smells nice.
I have Silver Mountain Water and always give that one a shot to the front of my shirt. I smell it wafting around all day. Never had a bad comment and always women at work say how nice it smells.
Olfactory fatigue is a mystery indeed....
If I spray Aventus on the skin of my right arm, and at the same time, spray my shirt cuff of my left arm, the scent is gone from my skin in 4-5 hours. But...
I visited a couple Nordstroms over the weekend. Both had plenty of stock of Terre d'Hermes. The Parfum and edt. It's not going anywhere. Thank goodness!!
I like it. It's a safe clean scent.
Funny. I would say the same thing about Tobacco Vanille. Headache inducing, vanilla soaked cigarette pack. Nauseates me. But it's not cheap smelling, and neither is Pure Havane.
I got a review up if anyone's interested in what my nose picks up.
Weird. I hate Pure Malt and like Pure Havane. ...then again, im a little strange.... :D
Windsor by Creed is a cleaner version of Rose31.
Yeah, there's definite tobacco in Pure Havane. It's the honey and tobacco together that gives off a boozy Pure Malt vibe. This only lasts a few minutes before the heart shows up and it starts to...
Totally agree with this. I love that black currant note, and also the ambergris.
New Haarlem by far.
Only if it has goat pee in it.
Prada Amber PH
Yep. FdM is all about the Orange Blossom and if you dont like that note, you wont like FdM.
Hey Jonny19. I could send you a sample of FdM. I like it...actually wore it today to work. Stuff is strong and lasts over 12 hours on my skin. It's way different than Le Male.
I get a really nice sandalwood from Bel Ami by Hermes.
Totally agree with ya about Polo Explorer.
For me, it's gotta be this beauty: Baldessarini Ambre
Youtube reviews are lame.
If you like a sweet tobacco leaf note, then you'll probably like The Dreamer.
