Not interested in buying this. This experience soured me.
I am surprised that no one has mentioned Hermes Santal Massoia. A huge coconut vibe.
You can still buy this from the L'Occitane Web site: http://usa.loccitane.com/men's-fragrances,82,1,39148,0.htm
No, but the EDT can be found with a cool keyring. :grin::grin:
I was unimpressed. Poor longevity and poor sillage. This is like the things they sell in those bath shops.
I just bought a backup of EdB online with some deodorant and aftershave balm. :)
Great article. Thank you for sharing.
Agree here. I would prefer to have synthetics in this regard. I am happy to wear my aldehydes and muscones.
+1 on Azuree, Pollux. It's also a green leather.
I vote for A La Nuit. In the Tom Ford, the jasmine is not the main player. If you like jasmine, also try SL Sarrasins. Jasmine and leather.
I also have too many!
It's a beautiful herbal floral and can be used by men. Reminds me of Apres L'Ondee.
Socal, I never tried the shower gel. DH loves the aftershave balm and the deodorant.
Too bad they also phased out the Notre Flore Mediterranean line. I adore the Iris, Jasmin, Immortelle and the...
All of the ELdO names are odd.
For me, the start is a dark brown when help up to light.
What a shame that EdB is getting the axe. The scent is wonderful and affordable, and the grooming items are also very good (deodorant and shaving balm.)
More votes for:
Chanel No. 19 (all versions)
Vol de Nuit in the parfum
Miss Dior (original version)
You might also try Must de Cartier as it has a lot of galbanum in the top notes,...
Thank you for sharing your impressions. This one is on my list to try.
Sounds interesting, so I am bumping this to see if anyone can help.
Good for you! Enjoy!
Don't know if this is old news or not, but I saw this on Lucky Scent. I have only seen them at department stores and boutiques, with Neroli Portofino at Sephora.
A new attempt at niche...
Almost all men's scents have florals in them: lavender, orange blossom, jasmine, rose. A scent is as masculine as the man who wears it.
Welcome, Kop. LOL!
I think SL Muscs Kublai Khan is an odd one.
I thought this was a new Italian scent called "Il struzzo." :grin: After all, Kenzo have Elephant and Tiger.
I avoid animal ingredients if I know they are in the fragrance. I bought the Mugler Angel Leather (which I love) and was distressed that it was made of real leather. I though it was, like most...
I know that SL Sarrasins stains like wine. I don't recall this on the box, but can anyone add to this?
Have her sample Dior Granville. This is a very herbal and aromatic scent.
For me, Vol de Nuit parfum.
I like Idole, but now I prefer Bentley in the EDT or EDP. I like this better than Idole EDP.
Many young men wear gourmands like Spicebomb, Givenchy Pi and One Million.
SDV is really an "old-school Victorian floral masculine scent."
If you like it, wear it!
Jicky in the EDP.
Every one has a limit. I go with dougczar,
I recall seeing some shoppers and sampling fragrance. One saw the price and exclaimed, "THIS is $40.00?!" For them, that was sticker shock.
Thank you for the kind thought.
Hard to tell.
Thank you for sharing.
1970s? You may wish to post this to the perfume bottle threads. The 75 degrees is the alcohol content.
I did not vote. The best of these, as you said, are in the old striped boxes. I prefer the EDT of Le Dandy.
L'Intrigante is a women's scent that was launched in 2010. There was no striped box...
I would say they are two different scents. I love both and have both.
Cuir de Lancome is a wonderful smoky floral leather (jasmine) and Cuir de Russie is an aldehyde floral leather with just a...
I understand that all posts from Huddler are in an archive and will be restored at some point.
I don't know what you think "mature" might be, but these scents are decades old, reformulated to some extent, of course.
All the current versions are very good. They are classics--for a good...
How wonderful, Suppressor! Very, very best wishes!
Count me in for a sample! :2vrolijk_08:
+1 on Hedonist's suggestion. This is also called 1740 Marquis de Sade, but it's very pleasant.
+1 on Arsene Lupin/Dandy
Rose d'Homme by Rosine is a wonderful suggestion, hednic.
Also try buying a decant of Dior Oud Ispanhan.
Do not blind buy Pure Leather. In my opinion, I like the Angel Cuir much better, the one marketed for women.
I salute you, sjg! For too many, Veterans' Day is just a chance to get a day off from work. For someone who knows/loves/loved one who served/serves, especially if you lost someone to combat, it's...
I think Chanel No. 19 had more leather in the 1970s.
I would venture to say that all modern fragrances have been reworked, regardless of claims that they have not. Raw...
I love the heavy scent of Black Orchid and the rich rose/patchouli in Midnight Poison.
I have both.
One article you need to read with a comment about Black Orchid:
+1 on Bois des Iles.
Maybe someone can suggest another fruitchouli.
Thank you all for the replies.
I beg to differ that this thread is "wrong" in any way. War is an ugly reality and yet life goes on. I think the image of a soldier buying perfume for his...
The original version of the EDP and the parfum have agarwood (oud). I have the Beau Cavalier and the leather case bottles. The oud is not that pronounced.
Socal, I agree with you. "Nouveau niche" is a funny term.
Veterans' Day/Armistice Day is celebrated in many places around the world and causes us to reflect on the sacrifices made by soldiers in the service to their countries. It also cause us to reflect,...
Thank you all for the comments.
I have the MPG George Sand, and it reminds me of Youth Dew.
I agree with Hedonist. Do the best you can.
Sometimes companies mix things, such as Prada's Amber Pour Homme. It's not "ambre."
Keiko Mecheri has a scent called "Bal de Roses," and not "Bal...
Most alcohol-based aftershaves don't last long. The scented balms last a little longer.
If you are going for fragrance, why not just use the scent?
Thank you, Willy. I want to try both and see which might better suit me. I tend to go for longevity and sillage.
Another "root beer" scent is Creed Royal Delight, which I enjoy. It's a very...
I enjoy the Granville, Oud Ispahan and Leather Oud and am interested in sampling the Gris Montaigne and Bois d'Argent.
Which of these should I try first? I understand both have leather and iris....
Pollux, if that experience won't kill your love for Kouros, nothing will.
Thank you, Hedonist, for the update.
I will have to sample this.
Oolong Infini by Atelier Cologne
Cumberland Ti by Liz Zorn
Age does not define taste. Taste defines taste. Many young people like and wear "old man" and "old woman" scents because they are sick of the plethora of men's aquatics and the...
I enjoy the Habanita, but in the EDT. The EDP is not bad, but the EDT seems like a better balance of notes.
The Jasmin and Patchouli in EDT are also very good.
The Tom Ford exclusives are usually sold as unisex, and apart from the designer line.
Glad you bought it! It's a great citrus with power.
Great "gateway" fragrances for the children.
I was sniffing, I am told, about the time I learned to walk.
This one showed up at discounters along with the men's body wash and deodorant.
Glad it's still being made.
I hear this is similar to Lubin Idole. If so, it must be a nice scent.
I feel for you Oslo, but unless one owns a bespoke scent, this is bound to happen.
Just continuing in wearing what you like and don't let it bother you.
The man has taste. You can strike up a...
What are the differences and are they much to notice in the Intense, which is said to have incense and geramium.
In my opinion:
Le Labo Patchouli 24
Cuir de Lancome
Things so dear and familiar.
Thanks for the update, Danielle.
Nice to see you, Mimi!
+1 These are two very different scents.
It's all relative. There are some here who might be highly offended by the notion of a strip club as morally offensive or for other reasons.
Totally agree with the above.
The humor is just...
ROTFL! I wish they would do that scent!
That said, how about "Place de la Concorde" as a new scent?
Onyx by Lentheric (vintage)
Murasaki by Shiseido
The scent of a lover's skin.
That said, Eau Sauvage in the EDT or the Eau Sauvage Cuir Fraicheur.
I don't think women should flaunt a muffin top when they dress.
I liked this when it first came out and wore several bottles. My tastes have changed, and I don't think I will go back to this at any point soon. Who know?
Las Vegas has a shopping center called Crystals at City Centre. They have Tom Ford and Hermes.
They also have a Chanel boutique.
Have a wonderful trip!
I think the model here is the Bohr atomic model. :)
I would like to know more about this line.
GQ are saying this is a new scent. (March 2013 article)
Any ideas on this? Launched in 2011 but not much press on it.
Please try Sycomore. It's a double for Encre Noir by Lalique.
I know many companies are no longer with the original companies.
Many fragrance companies are revived from very old companies so that the company can claim an old and glorious image of catering...
Thank you for the report.
These two scents are truly niche offerings.
I would llke to add that Comptoir Sud Pacifique carry some scents with coconut, too.
Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess has amber with coconut.
Great video! I truly feel sorry for staff who must enforce the rules that are not customer-friendly.
LOL! Here is an article on return policies and customer loyalty. Some companies lose business over a $35 item.
For instance some stores will re-charge a customer to ship out an item to replace...
Neroli Portofino by Tom Ford.
You may wish to try Bandit or Balmain Jolie Madame. Men can enjoy wearing these. My other half wears my Jicky and Antaeus.
Demeter Apple Pie. The name says it all. Nice and fun but not a scent for longevity.
We all buy fragrance. Some of us spend quite a good deal on fragances.
We buy fragrance from discount e-tailers to boutique counters from luxury department stores. We pay and expect to receive...
Thank you for agreeing that the double-charge was wrong. This was at the department store counter, and a high-end one at that.
Eau des Baux
Roberto Cavalli Man
Opium Pour Homme
Pour Un Homme
One can still track down the old 90 ml bottles of Parfum d'Habit.
I recall this one as a "hairy-chested" scent. LOL!
I think Armani has a good set of exclusives, but they come and go. My beloved Amethyste was gone, and I don't know if it returned. I like it when companies have set that stay.
Real men don't need to spray anything on.
The smell alone of sweat, a leather jacket and wool clothes will do the trick.
If you want rough, try Le Labo Patchouli 24. It's all smoke and leather.
To each his own.
They have my credit card number already. If I did not return the item in a timely manner, THEN they should have charged my card. Easy enough. many companies do this. They...
They sound wonderful. Thank you for the post.
I understand the original scents were EDTs.
I had issue with the latter. I made a phone order and was sent the wrong item. In order for them to send the correct item, my credit card was charged again--even though it was the fault of...
Lesson learned the hard way, I guess.
The real lesson is never again to buy from them.
There are a lot of other retailers who will take my money AND get the order correct, or who will ship the...
