I really like that you meet the same people in different places of the internet. And i’ve seen a few Basenotes members at parfumo.net already. But the international parfumo still needs to grow (which...
Fleur de Sel
Ambre à Sade by Nez à Nez.
My question wasn’t about morality but if the image would be legal. That i personally don’t like the objectification of women (of any age) doesn’t make it less legal.
So, if Jürgen Teller takes the same picture (or a very similar one) in four month again, everythings fine?
What’s wrong with 80ml?
Sycomore, Itasca, VE
It’s very nice. The drydown is a bit strong on the vanilla side. Layering with Kyoto f.ex. helps.
Even if i decided to wear Acqua di Gio, i’d say chances are slim that i run into anyone wearing that fragrance. It would be different of course if you work at a Creed Boutique.
Miller Harris: Fleur de Sel ;)
One – when you’ve found it, it’d be nice if you return to us to answer this question.
Sounds like a great trip. Thanks for sharing.
EN should send samples to the netherlands. Their prices are good: http://shop.essenza-nobile.de/duefte
Divine - L’Homme de Coeur / An iris centered fragrance without the lipstick connotations of Dior Homme and definately less everyday than Prada’s infusion. A clean and elegant scent with herbal...
„ail by hand in the highest tradition of the founder“ :D
It’s a good enough leather scent. But i don’t want to smell like a new car.
I was more bothered by the bullshit itself than by the typos.
Don’t buy CW. You’ll be totally uninteresting to her if you first ask what she likes and then follow that road. The question you should ask yourself is: What would a woman really be impressed by who...
WS starts like strawberry marmelade and gets woodier, until there’s not much strawberry left. If you don’t care for gourmands, you won’t like it. But who asks for strawberries and doesn’t like...
Thanks for the information. :-)
Why do you use that much? A perfume bottle without spry is traditionalle used by closing the bottle with your finger, turning the bottle upsidedown, turning it up again, putting your now perfume wet...
Ambre Gris – Balmain
I don’t like either very much. I also don’t think they share much besides the word ambre.
Congrats on your purchase. SMW is a great scent. Different batches of the Creed Millesime line have not always exactly the same smell. So, if you compare the stuff from the bottle with your sample...
This one is subtle. The vanilla is definitely build as a floral, but the floral aspect isn’t as dominant as in Vanille Galante f.ex. It provides an almondy sweetness which reminds of mazipan. It...
Try this site. Besides Coumarin there should be everything listed: http://belabela.posterous.com/chypre
If there’s a Basenotes award for people who care about fragrance, you should get one. Thinking about your perfume while being totured by kidney stones is a serious statement.
Get well soon!
The name is Indult Tihota. Tihota means Sugar in Polynesian. And the perfume is limited to 999 flacons – as an owner you can register to get more. Be quick.
PdN make very harmonic and elegant scents. And they have a style of their own. The perfumes are wearable and understated yet they aren’t common or mundane. Nonetheless there are very few that i...
Dick Fuld told the rest of us every day. Still believe, he was right.
Well, if you don’t like it, you can return it, you know...
There’d be much less reviews if one always should finish a 100ml bottle of perfume before writing. Sorry, but if i didn’t get a fragrance after 2-3ml i’d have no nose. I don’t have to finish a barrel...
Yes, this is exactly what makes it so horrific.
I don’t think we will see the death of any of the above mentioned things.
ps. What’s a check?
So just because you don’t accept someone’s opinion you should be able to delete it?
Eau des Baux by L’Occitane. You seem to like sweeter scents and it’s centred around francincense without being smoky. It’s also quite inexpensive – you could get anoter scent for 150$. :)
Many of you may not be old enough to remember. But once there was something called journalism. :(
If it was Joop!, it wasn’t you.
There’s no need for sarcasm. Flammable liquids are prohibited at any size.
They’re 2ml – at least that’s what they state on their website. But that’s quite enough for several wearings and intensive testing.
While i personally don’t like Aventus i think it’s quite impossible to overdo it. But there seem to be people who are very sensitive to that one. My girlfried smelled the one spray on my wrist...
ALzD is very good, as is Essenza Nobile. UK-based Les Senteurs offers a nice sample service, too. They ship for free in the EU and samples are 3 Pound each. I received factory samples aswell as...
Now, that’s evil. ;)
They are great. I once ordered a batch of samples and they didn’t have enough juice to completely fill one of the atomizers. I wouldn’t have noticed the difference really as it was ~1.5ml full, but...
Silver Mountain Water (Creed), Prada Infusion Homme, Live Jazz (YSL), Classic 1920 (Bois 1920), Fleur de Sel (Miller Harris), Ecre Noir (Lalique), French Lover (Malle), He Wood Rocky Mountain Wood...
La Mâle terrible ;)
Italian Cypress by far. And it’s best in warm summer nights.
I prefer Musc Rav, too – on girls ... rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
Taking over Hermès is a bit more difficult, since there’s very little stock openly traded. More than 70% is owned by the family. This said, some members of he family seem to want to sell, since LVMH...
Sycomore. If it should be available in 75ml soon, there should also be enough money left to get a straighter vetiver, too. FM also has a small travelling set 3x10ml. So this is really a vote for...
Why don’t we have a Creed longevity sub forum? ;)
It’s a great perfume and really something special, yet very wearable and versatile.
Dulcis in Fundo by Profumum Roma
Any special bug spray? Does it have decent sillage and longevity? ;-)
Well, my knowledge in chemistry is limited, but a chromatograph doesn’t tell you about the ingredients but the molecules in the liquid.
You might like Fleur de Sel by Miller Harris. But maybe you find it too harsh or dry. Many women like it, though, and i see no reason why you shouldn’t like it on a woman. Good luck!
IBAN/swift is wire transfer. In the EU it should cost as much to transfer the money as it does in your own country – not £25. Could be that the UK doesn’t take part in those EU regulations.
It is a very good vetiver, very puristic. But there are many other vetivers out there which aren’t as expensive. While i think it’s a great perfume it’s the one i’d less likely buy from the line.
I’ve bought a 4oz bottle of this on Ebay. Do you think it’s fake??
This would be my suggestion. The bottle alone is a winner. ;)
Just buy her a bottle of Putain des Palaces to make up for it. ;)
Vanille Galante isn't a traditional vanilla scent. It's a very delicate floral with lilly as a main player which is backed by a thin hint of vanilla. That's what makes it so intriguing - or not. But...
Les Senteurs from London offers to ship samples at 3£ each (up to 6 sampes). They ship outside the UK, too, at least in europe. Don’t know about the US. But it’s far less expensive than ordering from...
What JCE wears.
No problem with ebay and fragrances here.
Here you go: http://www.hintmag.com/post/qampa-with-the-legendary-chanel-perfumer-jacques-polge--september-02-2010
You might want to tell us, where you live. ;)
I don’t get the obsession with brands. I own bottles and samples by Creed and TF, but many others too. To me this evolution sounds like: I want to smell>smell good>smell good and exclusive/different....
I like neither Amouage nor Xerjoff, though they are both very high quality. To me it feels like a world class orchestra playing a rather mundane symphony. That said Xerjoff is a bit lighter, but also...
Life is adventure!
I find the strong angelica note in FL rather unique and central for the composition. Since Gucci pH (both: 1976 and 2003) lack this one, i don’t see much of a similarity.
Those would be horrible fragrances for everyone, not only for an 18 year old.
Maybe his grandpa wears MI. ;)
The Private Blends are also quite reasonable if you buy them online from the UK.
„Oh, that was a gift. You like it? It’s from Puredistance ... but i haven’t seen it anywhere, yet.
Extreme, because it’s interestingly well blend being ambratic, powdery, leathery and smoky at once. Though it is daring and manly it remains elegant. It’s the best of the common people Tom Fords.
If you work either here or here, it’s ok.
I had to stop wearing SMW at work, because my boss was always hitting on me, when she smelled it. But i guess that’s ok, when you’re 19 and attending university.
This! (Well one of them, not all together.)
Actually, i don’t think that people who don’t have this hobby don’t appreciate perfume, but do it in a different way. Maybe even in a better way, because they wouldn’t know the scent is good but...
You’re shopping in the wrong places.
I don’t get where his style comes into play. He’s almost exclusively wearing Gucci.
Tom Ford Private Blends ... Tobacco Vanille would be right for the cold seasons, but you might like other scents from the line better. They are usually around 70£ on Ebay in GB.
I think i’m going to call it that from now on. :D (sorry for OT)
I second Eau des Baux – great scent and great value fpr money.
Because they were hyped?
While i think Ebay’s policies are mostly rubbish, this time it’s not their fault. You cannot legally sell testers in the european union anymore. On June 6th 2010 the european court of justice ruled...
My girlfriend reacts crazy, when she smells porcinos (especially when i put them in a risotto). Still haven’t found a way to make my body smell that way. :(
