This is my nr. 1
A true masterpiece!:coolold:
Hi from Italy here,
as Armani pour Homme is among my favourite scents (and the most Italian smelling juice ever IMHO:p), after reading this post I run :eek:to a perfume shop in my town and asked...
Méchant Loup. It is not a loud scent, sometimes I don't smell it on me, but after some hours, it start again to rise up. Very strange...
I think you have drunk it instead of spraying it. :D In this case, when you sweat, you get the scent. Good idea!
Sometimes, if you search in some small perfume shops you can find special offers of discontinued colognes sold at a fraction of price, because the owner wants to ged rid of old stocks. So I got many...
Yesterday I've got 2 x 60 ml bottles at Euro 19 each ;)
(Just to make you envious).
It is true - To wear this is simply a godly experience. :bath:
I'm with you Pelle, and would like to add Méchant Loup, which to my nose is also very poetic. Cheers. W
I've tried Infusion d'Homme yesterday. I have detected neroli + iris on a light vetiver base. I found it very nice but with no lasting power at all (10 min. or so).
The soapy aspect is due to...
[quote=perfumeboss;1315361]also got to try this was told it smells "like a frenchwoman's crotch" didn't catch the name.
all I've got to say is, men, don't start wearing this one, whatever the...
I've the same problem and resolved as follows :
option 1) Terracotta for Man by Guerlain. Very good stuff, invisible but gives a little colour without shining
Knize 10 and Knize forest are easily available in Italy, at least in the best perfume shops, not in the mainstream ones. Hugs
after checking my fragrance wardrobe I've noticed that most part of my scents are -
Among the newest releases I'd say Marc Jacobs Cotton or one of the other waters of the line (big spash bottles)
Go with Original Tabac (German grandpa)
Jil Sander for men (for younger crowd)
Patou pour Homme 2 60 ml splash bottles Euro 19 each:thumbsup:
Shiseido Tactics 100 ml Euro 40:cool:
Signoricci (vintage) 100 ml Euro 35
Arrogance Uomo 100 ml Euro 3,5
Montana pour Homme 75 ml...
the correct name is Eau Sauvage fraicheur cuir, but on the box there is also the English translation Eau sauvage Leather freshness.
It starts like the original but soon after the initial...
Among best: Eau Sauvage Fraicheur Cuir, Fahrenheit 32, Chanel Allure Cologne Blanche.
Worst: don't know
:dankk2:a lot at first for all the replies.
So, I've sampled Chevrefeuille Original, and it was a good idea to smell before buying!
This is a nice herbal scent, suitable for summer, but as I...
This is exactly the the reason why Neroli is claimed to have a calming effect on the emotional sphere (and the reason why I have a lot of orange blossom scents)
Enjoy it! I do the same.
I wouldn't date a girl who wears this perfume... :p
I totally agree;). Perhaps we have similar skin types or perfume taste. To my nose Chanel Allure Cologne Blanche is delicious and the best of the Allure bunch.
I enjoy it in the summer heat, when...
You should tell us how this line is. I'm very curious.
Please let us know if you now looks younger and your skin is glowing!
I totally agree!
I'm so proud of my hairy chest... And scents last longer :p
Caron pour un Homme
Rive Gauche pour homme YSL
Any light pine and/or citrus cologne
Here is getting really hot hot and humid here :beer:and was thinking to buy Chevrefeuille Original by Creed to refresh myself a little.
I love the smell of the honeysuckles blossoming...
Moreover, Aveda Per-fume Tonic doesn't resemble any cologne I've smelt before, even if the ingredients are soo classic...
glad to find another Aveda Per-Fume Tonic fan.
This is a simple scent, and should be totally natural/organic BTW.
It is a cologne that can be used also like body mist. It smell...
KOUROS makes me horny!!!
You are totally right Renato.
I had the same experience with SM. A strong and forever lasting vomit stench that made me gag. The most disturbing scent so far.
I've tested this for you boys:p. After the bad experience of Secretion Magnifique :eek: I was a little scared, but Tom of Finland is nice - green airy opening, then a rubbery medicinal smell of...
I've tried Secretion Magnifique some days ago, unfortunately on my skin.
It doesn't smell like sex or to anything sex-related. It smells like plain vomit and is extremely longlasting. I felt...
I use white vinegar to rinse old perfume bottle and vials, then I rinse again with water.
No smell at all after this treatment. :p
The Frangipane (Plumeria) flower smells like a buttery indolic jasmine with citric overtones and animalic undertones. In particular, the SMN rendition has a drydown reminiscent of Sheldrake perfumes...
I did it - I went out to an high end perfume shop (only niche and ultra expensive stuff) and bought me Frangipane and Ginestra by Santa Maria Novella.
Frangipane is a true...
I second Tvlampboy. Laser is the best and it is not so expensive if you mind how much creams cost.
I'm under laser trearment against broken capillaries and redness on face and it works!
Try ZAGARA by Santa Maria Novella. It is pure Neroli. (Zagara in Italian means orange flower)
Is Sychomore supposed to contain also Sychomore notes?
Just to be precise, as a musicologist I think a scent for an opera evening should be tuned according to the opera your are going to.
Puccini has different notes than Verdi or Wagner, so, if you...
finally I did it, I bought Eau de Merveilles, because I wamted a summer scent.
I was undecided between the Eau and the Elixir, but this last has a sugary note, also found in...
Colonia Russa is a magic blend of bitter orange and balsamic/ambery notes.
It is both uplifting and melanchonic/nostalgic, a classic gentleman scent of old school.
I use it in the cold...
At the end of this thread I'm wondering:
which one shoud I get of EDR, the woman or the man version?
AVEDA Pur-fume tonic.
It is bright, brisk and lemony with a clean powdery drydown.
Moreover, it is made of natural ingredients. Pretty uplifting.
Yes, you are correct. The drydown of Bal à Versailles is very similar to the one of Knize 10. I didn't buy Bal à versailles because I already own Knize 10.
If I had to choose now between these two...
And what about Muschio and Muschio Oro by Santa maria novella, or Etro's Musk ... ?
I don't know them but would like to have some inputs.:confused:
Thank you and cheers. W
Colonia Russa by SMN is one of my favorites scents ever - neroli + bitter orange on a warm and smooth ambery base. Absolutely stylish and gentlemanly.
Knize Ten is definitely a German perfume.
Ferré Uomo (1986) is still wonderful.
Armani pour homme also.
I miss this experience!!! Hope to :wink: fill the gap soon.
Krizia Uomo is still a cheap best seller amond the "oldies".
Get it! You won't regret the buy. It is such a clear and luminous scent!
Try Acteur by Azzaro (now discontinued) if you find it. It is a fruity rose + leather. Very nice.;)
Etro's New Tradition is a nice musk with citrus top notes. Not too strong but long lasting.
This is interesting. I also strongly dislike the licorice note in many Lutens (e.g. Arabie, Santal Blanc). Any suggestions about "Licorice-free" Lutens?
Thank you in advance!
Eau du Coq (Guerlain)
Acqua di Parma
Acqua classica Borsari
Armani pour homme
Leonard pour homme
Roger & Gallet (I don't remember the exact name, but it is the...
"You smell like cat litter, not used cat litter, just fresh plain deodorant smelling cat litter" I was wearing my beloved Ferre pour homme 1986.
"What f###k did you put on? Violetta di Parma of...
For me traditional colognes with prominent rosemary, eucaliptus, basil, mint, neroli and uplifting citrus notes are the most brain stimulating. In other words, an intellectual stimulating perfume is...
The original Indian VICCO toothpaste is really a must try!
Hi, I have a samples of Eau du Soir. It is a modern chypre, slightly recalling Mitsouko.
To my nose it is very "femme", even matronly. Very good indeed, but as a man I wouldn't wear it. Anyway,...
The new Mitsouko is good but oakmoss free (it is a banned component because allergenic)
You should look for the vintage formulation.
Try Alien by Mugler...
Should work well...
I remember a delicious rubbery/leathery note in the drydown.
I'm speechless. Why should Emes get such a series of insulting answers? He isn't the first to be interested in wearing female perfumes.
I use Mitsouko edp as a room spray (luxury!!!) It is really nice and my cat is really moved when he smells it.
So far, the only female fragrance I feel confident to wear is Feminité du bois, because it is woody and has low sillage, i.e. it is a skin scent to my nose and works well.
I enjoy wearing Jicky,...
Many fragrance-lovers use this word 'dirty' about a scent. I am not sure exactly what is meant by that. Anyone can explain? Perhaps it means 'leathery', 'animalic', 'earthy/rooty'? I'd then say that...
The notes are quite disgusting and I fear the list is not complete!
One good thing: After this release I'm sure Kouros will be praised as the most clean smelling perfume ever!
One of my holy grails (if such a thing exists).
I love roses and love this. It is powdery at the end, that's why I use it after evening showers.
Necessary in sad moments, especially before going...
who is BPI? Sorry for my ignorance.
Just a question about the bronzing powder : Does this emphasize lines and wrinkle ? Does it stain shirts ?
I ask you this because I had this...
I had this one! A glass bottle with blue characters, gears-like edges and a bitter/warm wintery spicy scent.
I nearly forgot to have used it. Thank you for old memories you awoke in me.
I had a look at the Ormond Jayne website. I fear I should ask my bank for a mortgage... They sell also the samples, no free samples, sigh & sob
I would love to sniff this, but unfortunately Ormond Jayne perfumes are not available in Italy.
I think I have a samples vial of Royal Water. Is this that was made for lady Diana?
If yes, it shares some similarities with O de Lancome (the woman perfume).
As O de Lancome is IMO wearable...
Yes, I second this. PdT has the right balance. Very nice and sexy. W
Sorry for being sooo precise... but Anise is not Licorice, they 2 different plants.
They share some similarities, but they are definitely different.
Perhaps this could sound strange... But try Arabie by Serge Lutens. I've tried this (unfortunately) and it smells like plain licorice for the first day, the day after this develops a dried...
thank you for the quick reply!
If the original red box Montana is back on the market I'll douse myself with my two bottles... Glad to hear this.
Regarding the Signoricci, I...
Just before Christmas I've found in my town a perfume shops, where I bought some sadly discontinued juices I was looking for :
Shiseido - Feminité du bois
This is to my nose the scent of...
Hi, I've smelt this just one time. It smells a little like fish, but in a good way!
But I think it is to weird for me to wear.
I find MR is very similar to Amen...
I lover the bitter orange smell.
To my nose Santa Maria Novella "Colonia Russa" is one of the best achievement in this field, a slightly dirty/ambery bitter orange, which is suitable for winter...
This is also an issue for me, because I love to wear leather (especially black).
Luca Turin says to avoid for instance Anteus while wearing leather jackets, but he doesn't...
I'm proud owner of a japanese bottle of Shiseido men edt.
It is even not listed in BN directory!
My ultra cheap choice:
honey + fine salt + some lemon juice drops = very effective and moisturizing
plain white sugar
Madridabadid, really I cannot understand how you can say that the atmosphere in south Spain "stinks" of orange blossoms. In Southern Italy it is a heavenly smell.
If you don't like orange blossom...
Yes, I know them. They are all delicious and very cheap.
Vanilla Lime has citrus top notes, the Vanilla coffee is very wintery and sweet, and the Vanilla Mango is one of my summer favourites, really...
My armpits after a working day!
I can send samples...
As far as I remember in Aleppo you can buy perfume oils in the suk (market).
I don't remember any shop like in the western countries, aside from airport shops, which anyway carry just the main...
I think that the old good Armani pour homme could be an alternative for eau d'hadrien.
IMO the drydown of Armani pour homme is better, dry/woodier and less sweet/ambery.
The topnotes are...
you always forget Ferrè pour Homme 1986. Best of best!!!
I'd add Eau Dynamisant by Clarins, very seldom mentioned here, but very nice, in the vein of Eau Sauvage... Very summery, invigorating and refreshing (not very long lasting, but you can reapply or...
Usually I don't expect compliments for a fragrance, but my young female colleague today said me: You smell divine this morning... I want my man smell like this for our wedding.
So I told her what...
The two latest suggestions may be useful even if these procedures seem a little bit complicated. The main issue is that a fragrance applied through an emulsion carrier may cause allergic reactions,...
Yes: It is an evergreen!!! A true classic!
No: It is too classic!
Good question! I also wondered why, but now I noticed that some cosmetic companies propose after-shave balms as body/hand lotions for men. After-shave balms and body lotions are pretty similar...
Could be America?
Hesperia = The country of the sunset for the old Greek = Italy = the country where lemon, orange and bergamot trees blossom.
So hesperidian is a citrus dominated perfume.
Hope this helps.
The only Series I didn't warm up to were Guerrilla Series, which I found very disappointing.[/QUOTE]
This is a good sign Tig: Especially the name Guerrilla for a perfume is extremely stupid and...
Rose is my favourite flower notes in men's perfumes. Until now the best I've found is
Acteur by Azzaro, which is now unfortunately discontinued, a beautiful true rose and leather fragrances. Very...
On a man:
Kouros, Jicky, Amen
