Today I put on 8 sprays of Chanel Sycomore.
Six sprays of Silver Mountain Water.
Monsieur Balmain is a long lasting lemon verbena chypre.
I think Geranium Pour Monsieur is one of those weird scents, with its peppermint, geranium leaf, and ambroxan.
Another weird one, and a masterpiece, is Vero Onda - a dirty and disconcerting vetiver.
From the list provided: Jules.
Another one thrown in for consideration: Oscar de la Renta Pour Lui.
A lady came into my office wearing Coco - she is an octogenarian and it smelled great on her. I have a bottle of vintage Coco extrait and reserve it for nighttime at home.
Thanks, dude. I only have a version which is around four years old. I need to score me some vintage.
Why is that the case for you? I've never tried the vintage, but I did try the ribbed bottle, which I never liked, and then liked it when they put it into the rectangular bottle identical to one Habit...
rulopbo is apparently still a teenager and has neither the knowledge of what depression is, on top of the typical teenager sense of knowing everything, as well as the total lack of empathy and sense...
Jesus, Grant, the way you described it hits straight to the heart - I've experienced that perspective of life that depression presents to you all my life and have never really been able to articulate...
I love their Vetyver - my bottle is from 2003 and really isn't green to me like many vetivers but instead is warm and quite comforting with the influence of nutmeg.
Today was four sprays of Masque Russian Tea, which is a shitload considering how potent this stuff is.
Wow, Vanilla Smoke sounds right up my alley.
Any of my vetivers
I blind-bought L'Envol because of the good reviews and the bottle design pushed me over the edge, without a doubt. I figured it would not be that high quality of a design and composition (bottle,...
I smelled Vero Rubj wafting by me at the ballet last night. That was a pleasant surprise.
Oh yeah, you don't hear about No 18 much. I have a sample of this and found it very interesting when I've worn it.
Crap, I just read this about her husband. Thanks for sharing your experience.
I also recommend Masque L'Attesa.
Today I'm wearing eight sprays of Comme des Garçons Blue Santal.
I wore four sprays of Annick Goutal Vetiver today and loved the tobacco dry down, so I put on another twelve sprays this evening to wallow in it. I guess this is my Valentine Darling this year.
Tam Dao - vintage EdT
Chanel Pour Monsieur - vintage, before they castrated it by removing the oak moss
Geranium Pour Monsieur
And a newcomer I'd like to add is...
I don't want to jump to conclusions since I've only been wearing it for three weeks, but it's up there with Vol de Nuit for me and I can easily see why people consider it the best of all time.
You mean shorts?
Yep, but that's not what the OP was asking.
I have to agree with all of Suspended's points in this thread - there are very, very few lines of fragrances which have a "signature smell", which is what the original post requested examples of and...
Oh shit, now I'm stressed out that your expectations are too high!
Tried The Different Company's Adjatay today on my arm and I was very impressed with the deep animalic tuberose they achieved there. There's something there, bearing in mind this is a first...
Nine sprays of Cartier L'Envol this afternoon and evening.
I'm generally not a fan of vanilla, at all, in fragrances, but my recent discovery of the magnificence of Shalimar makes me want to try the vintage Spirituese Double Vanilla. Is there a smoky quality...
As a third party, I didn't get that he was saying that at all.
Today it was sunny after all of that rain which hit Northern California, so I wore eleven sprays of Penhaligons Ostara.
I get a strong cold cream note in Cuir d'Ange which turns me off.
The smoky vanilla, combined with the animalic base, gives Shalimar a fantastic leather drydown.
I think it will always be Vol de Nuit in extrait form. To me, it's perfect.
I've very recently fallen in love with Shalimar extrait, with the persistent brightness of lemon as a foil to the...
Very gracious offerings.
It's a masterpiece of men's fragrances. It is a nod to older style of fragrances - more of a next sentence in the narrative of men's fragrances and it is a damn, damn shame that is discontinued. It...
This evening I just put on eleven sprays of Chergui.
Coeur du Desert
Derby has leather but so much more.
Get a sample of Jules.
Oud 27 is an excellent example of what I'm talking about in the original post.
What?! Are you people nuts?
Fourteen sprays of Papillon Anubis this evening. I'm catching notes now which make me think this could be named "Gucci Pour Homme I Intense".
I decided to stay at home, order a pizza, and watch the Super Bowl - 13 sprays of Interlude Man. Don't believe me? Step outside and smell.
Yup! Amazing fragrance. This is sacrilege, but Cuir Pleine Fleur is everything Fahrenheit should be.
I'm loving the bottle of Alt-Innsbruck I'm using as an aftershave. First, the mint in it is so refreshing when applied to my face and it's a perfect foil for the sweet tobacco flower, which I'm under...
10 sprays today of Cartier L'Envol.
8 sprays of Guerlain Vetiver.
I had the day off so I put on eight sprays of Morabito Or Black and just applied four more to freshen things up a bit before bed.
To many, the opening of Mouchoir de Monsieur is a diaper filler.
I agree with the Guerlain Vetiver but my interpretation of the original post is that, while Habit Rouge is absolutely timeless, it doesn't really smell modern to me, but only to the detriment of...
I have to say that Comme des Garçons Daphne Guinness is a fantastic fragrance which is never discussed from what I've seen.
Heh, today I put on 9 sprays of Aoud Cuir d'Arabie.
I have to throw in for consideration Parfumerie Generale Iris Taizo - a warm iris fragrance that is perfect for cold winter days.
Wow, I forgot about Catalyst - my dad used to have a bottle of this that looked like a test tube.
L'Eau de L'Eau by Diptyque has a fantastic clove component.
Also recommend Chanel Coco.
10 sprays of Rochas Lui.
Interesting. I know Dans tes Bras is supposed to have a lot of Cashmeran. I need to o find a sample of the pure stuff.
This evening I put on 12 sprays of Tauer Lonesome Rider.
I love the Comme des Garçons 2 bottle designs.
Also Halston Z-14 pinched bottle is a classic.
I really like the Masque bottles and the cap, especially L'Attesa.
Find out what her creepy uncle wears.
Golconda by JAR.
I just ordered a customized Scent For The Soul! The components I requested (you get to choose seven) are:
I was definitely "WTF??" when I first opened this thread, but I really now enjoy enjoy the decadence of wearing so much fragrance. However, I do it just at home - absolutely never at work, unless...
I have a strong dislike for Creed, but I actually envy your perspective on this because I know that I'm not letting just my nose do the deciding on what to buy and wear and therefore doing myself a...
He will have the best smelling tent under the freeway.
My theory is that since it's such a hyper real narcissus, it utilized true narcissus absolute or however it was extracted, and I'm under the impression that it is quite expensive. It is indeed one of...
I've always been turned off by the note I can only describe as celery seed.
Do people really say stuff like this unironically?
Thirteen sprays this evening of 1976's Gucci Pour Homme.
I must say I really like Cartier L'Envol.
I strongly recommend Passage d'Enfer by L'Artisan.
This evening I sprayed on 8 sprays of Borneo 1834.
I second the recommendation of Safran Troublant. I also recommend Parfumerie Generale Iris Taizo, which has a powdery milkiness of almond milk along with a warm cardamom component.
Today was thirteen sprays of Comme des Garçons 2 Man.
Today was a dozen dabs of Chanel No 19 extrait.
You're a lucky man to have this bottle. It's a masterpiece which I'd love to own a bottle of.
Thanks for the recommendation of Oxiana, Kumquat. I agree that myrrh is a geeky note - a freckled sibling to the bright frankincense which takes some time observing to get the beauty. I don't know if...
12 heavy and running dabs of Shalimar extrait.
This makes me think of craft brewers in the U.S. with the use of hops - many of the acclaimed beers made here are to me out of whack with the heavy use of hops. To their credit, the brewers often get...
Off the top of my head, I think of Masque Milano, whose Russian Tea and Montecristo are powerhouses. One of my favorite niche houses, Papillon, are quite powerful in content and composition. This is...
Big, big fan of Tabac. He also has a jasmine and tobacco fragrance called Casablanca which is fantastic.
I'm glad I tried it. It's quite powerful and a little too sweet for my taste. I have a sample, though which I will try every once in a while.
Today was 10 sprays of Memoir Man.
Yeah, I'd say that many of Comme des Garcons fragrances are for geeks and fits my original post - Odeur 71? Synthetic Series? Absolutely. They don't jive with the conventional wisdom of what a...
You have a good point about us being kind of in a bubble where the discussion is indeed deeper than casual conversations.
The person who wrote that article is an idiot with a flawed logic that is only slightly more benign than anti vaxxers.
You speaking of salt, that is a geeky component, in my opinion. I think of Annick Goutal's Vetiver in the vintage form - it has this strong saline note which is quite strange.
Chinotto, eh? I will have to check that out. Are there an fragrances in particular that has that component? I love bitter stuff.
Read GEEK, not Greek!
Among wine lovers there is a classification of wines which are loosely applied to ones which are obscure and unconventional in style - this may be in part to the...
Today was a day off, so I wore 10 sprays of Cadavre Exquis.
This evening, after I showered, I put on 10 sprays (six on the chest and four on the neck) of 1983 vintage Mitsouko extrait - it is...
Have you tried Papillon Anubis?
Have you tried Diptyque? Frederic Malle?
Good! I'm excited that my recommendation stuck. Let us know what you think.
Yes! That's what came to mind for me as well. I would classify it as herbal and medicinal, as well as fresh and long-lasting.
For your consideration is Chanel Pour Monsieur Concentree.
Three sprays of Portrait of a Lady. If you don't think that's a lot then you've never worn this perfume.
Probably one of my most simple fragrances: Tam Dao EdT (vintage).
Oh wow, thanks. I'm going to have to explore this again.
