Rarely have I seen the nail hit so squarely on the head. :beer:
I more or less agree.
Often a compliment will be a reaction to really noticing something, the response could be "are you wearing aftershave ?" or perhaps if someone is feeling kindly disposed...
Right I'm off up the wooden hills to Bedfordshire but let me leave you with a thought :
Jive : How about you give a rest to the assessing of new and newish members and how they are shaping up as Basenoters ?
Your sarcastic response to this poster just re-inforces his...
Thanks. I'll bear it in mind.
I would start with Burberry London or maybe just Dior Homme Intense (Or Dior Homme, I like it just as much and it's a bit cheaper)
Really though, try them and make up your own mind.
I always test projection by checking if the cat retains consciousness when I walk past him. If he doesn't I know I'm good to go.
I would start at ten with a weak scent like DH personally.
I carry a spare bottle in my lunchbox :smiley:
What do we think?
I personally think it says a lot about ebay that the seller is permitted to do business on the site.
He's certainly got some balls :smiley:
New Creed thread bumper in town.
Just what the forums need :thumbsup:
Don't pay attention to that thread, for Christ's sake :rolleyes:
Fair point. I haven't tried Costume National so I might give it a go, not that I need anything similar to Egoiste when i have the original.
Well I wouldn't want to be guilty of brolitical incorrectness!
You could try CDG Wonderwood, though again you might find it a bit "dry and literal"...
It might just work, but only if you are rude to people while wearing it.
I haven't tried the edp but going by the edt, you are going to have something extremely rich and extremely long lasting as the edt is both of these things.
I may even be slightly jealous :undecided:
I love Egoiste. The secret of the sweetness could be the rose mixed with the vanilla and the way that combines with the sandalwood is what really does it for me.
Sorry for those who don't get much...
I chipped in with some friends to buy a bag of civet coffee, but wasn't about when it arrived and it all got drunk without me :cry:
Apparently it was pretty good but not worth the pricetag...
Isn't that the new Creed body spray ?
Thanks MIkeMuscle for the clarification.
A "bromance" huh?
I should have guessed....
For work I say Bleu., but I would rotate so as not to get bored. Maybe Dior Homme ( 2 sprays max) and Mont Blanc Legend once a week, for example.
Nice to see this one still running :laugh:
Makes me think of being out in Liverpool at night. Most of the girls (and some of the boys) have that orange tan thing going on.
Someone made me laugh...
My own collection includes Monsieur De Givenchy EDT and aftershave, of which the edt topnotes have suffered slightly,
Chanel A Gentleman's Aftershave, which puzzles me slightly as I can't really...
I almost bid for a bottle not so long ago on ebay.
This talk is making me feel like I missed out...
You could have paid a bit more attention to spelling in the thread title. I thought you meant we were all now supporting or even going to be offered jobs with the Chanel company.
As to whether the...
It appears we looked in different places for our definition. My search brought up :
" a brief but intense infatuation for someone.
she did have a crush on Dr Russell"
Very much doubt it is skin chemistry.
Maybe try again in a while in different conditions and see if you get the same feeling. If you do then maybe they really aren't for you.
I suppose so. We are all of course entitled to our opinions, which makes them "valid" from at least one perspective. My opinion is that only a fool would label his opinion as invalid.
I guess it was a bit rude, but sharing efforts and threads doesn't make you an expert nose.
Because respecting the opinions of experts is always an indication of homosexuality....:kiss:
That's the best laugh I've had all day :thumbsup:
(Though I do respect Ericrico's passion and knowledge)
Ungaro 1 though I'm not quit sure why.
That makes sense. (or at least the Fahrenheit bit makes sense, can't really stand Cool Water personally but whatever.)
Thanks for your opinion :smiley:
Escada pour Homme for me.
That may or may not be the case but it doesn't stop any of us from posting them.
I think in L.T.s case though his background does give his opinions a little more gravitas than the average Basenotes...
Well he only beat you to it by three or four years.
I'm sure you'll be ready next time...:smiley:
I personally disagree with about 95% of your post :smiley: though let's be honest 95% of the time it's the Creed fanboys who complain about Luca Turin's views.
Great for a cheap laugh :wink:
I guess he is talking about original formulations, since the high scores for scents like Cool Water have to be for originality, surely?
I don't know about Fahrenheit though, it does seem a bit...
Well at least it wasn't long enough to get bored with.
Another option, though maybe a long shot is to locate some 5ml miniatures.
i bought a pack of about ten mixed samples between 1.5ml and 5ml...
I recommend young Damian looks for a part used bottle on ebay.
I got half a bottle for about £1700
Haha! sorry that should have read £17.00 but I won't delete it as it made me laugh :smiley:
OP : If you love Black orchid and need to replace it would you not be better just replacing it or looking at other female scents?
Enough said. :beer:
Fair enough, though I think the humour value might be slightly lessened for some of us by the 7,000 Aventus posters who have since written pretty much exactly the same thing . This post came from a...
DHS for me by some way.
Debenhams and John Lewis, (almost) full range of Guerlain ,Aqua Di Parma, Creed etc and only about 200 metres between them in city centre.
Four years ???
Further north Debenhams, John Lewis and Selfridges (if there is one) stock niche scents, depending on one's understanding of that word.
Much appreciated :thumbsup:
Anybody else who feels like putting the plebians in their place now's your chance :smiley:
Members appear to be outing themselves Ipp.
Nice, another one comes out of the woodwork.
Though to be quite honest I...
The question is, is it amusing?
Essenza for me.
Yes, though even rigorous testing doesn't seem to make that much difference in the end with me.
I enjoy something new until it isn't new anymore then the process starts again.
I'm at the point now...
There are still people who believe things that come from Creed marketing department?
Yes I suppose so.
It's the original XS, nothing to do with that nasty Black XS strawberry thing.
OONA NOIR, YOU ARE IN BIG TROUBLE !
The multiple poster or the OP ?
I sometimes think we are all 12 years old here :undecided:
I remember well.
The guy who would generally just condescend to write "Fragrance x is worth owning, fragrance y isn't " :lolk:
At least his elitism was confined to belief in his own superior...
Yes, expecting independent thinking on a fragrance forum, or pretty much anywhere else is kind of a tall order.
At least it's only a little :smiley:
I use all except Egoiste, MDG, Heritage Escada Pour Homme and Paco Tenere.
I will never get through the other bottles if i don't use them for something
It wasn't Prince Phillip was it ?
"Just told me go buy them from Dillard's if I'm so cheap and use a coupon."
Basenote's wouldn't be the same without these elitist charmers.
Some try to hide it, others enjoy flaunting it...
Glad you think so :coolold:
First bottle of Kouros 30 years ago.
I like Roadster personally and much prefer it to the sport version.
I know what people mean about Cartier scents being kind of "almost but not quite" sort of things. I had some samples of...
Unfortunately I feel somewhat the same. Still think it's great but I don't get excited any more by it.
I also had a very quick love affair with Le Male. Tested it and had to buy it. By the time it...
You could try something like Paco rabanne XS, available very cheaply in most places. More similar to Himalaya than Platinum Egoiste but in that ball park.
This has got me wondering if there was any kind of reformulation last year when it was suddenly made much more widely available again (at least in UK) ?
I had for gotten I tried it about a week ago.
Unfortunately I sampled another scent on the other arm at the same time (I can't even remember what it was now) but 2 sprays and It was struggling to be...
Sorry, just trying to lighten the tedium of another utterly pointless Creed thread .
Yeah well, you've got no chance. They are a strictly limited edition of 950.000 to commemorate the partnership with Hersheys.
Gone within two hours of the stores opening.
Eat your heart out !
I got these as a special promotion the other day.
Would have cost me about £250 in Marcus Nieman.
They told me Olivier gave them a lucky roll before packaging them too but I'm not sure I quite...
I don't believe it is much different really, but if you have the option at a good price I would take it.
A case in point.
I like all these scents, particularly Grey Vetiver, but I don't see any common denominator among them or see any reason why they should appeal to you based on what you have said.
Oh well, at least you won't get any more Creed recommendations :smiley:
On second thoughts I wouldn't be too sure of that.
I honestly don't know where to start. I would go and do some sampling in...
I believe so, owing to it's having "Eau De Toilette" written above Chanel..
You want someone you don't know to guess what you will like, and the only criterion is that it should be green? And different?
And you are not a label hound but it has to be from Creed? Or are you...
So where were you when I told ebay someone was selling "Chanel Allure Homme" in a 25 ml size that didn't even exist?
I waited months and nothing happened.
I love the skanky scents, Kouros, Mouchoir de Monsieur , Givenchy Gentleman are all in at least my top ten.
It's just the fecal note in Rive Gauche that I draw the line at :bath:
Self praise is the best praise :undecided:
Vintage bottles have the wraparound label.
I think the new version is OK but it doesn't measure up for me.
BTW I haven't tried any of them so I voted Volutes.
not sure why really.
Maybe the mods could make this thread a sticky?:undecided:
