... in search of peppermint , this was suggested to me at Sephora .
There may be a hint of mint in the opening but it soon fades and disappears on dry down .
But I like it !
Clean , exotic , and...
which of these or others is appropriate for night .
Minty ; prefer Peppermint ?
Haven't tried but Frederic Malle shower gel might work .
I've tried many bar soaps , some quite expensive , in search of a clean feeling and clean smelling scent .
In an upset , Ivory Aloe Scent !
Agua de Colonia Concentrada by Alvarez Gomez.
Forget designer .
I find that Aesop Deodorant works with many fragrances .
J&J is Mineral Oil ; don't know if that's good for your skin .
Are there any clean face oils made for men ?
Aesop , What do you think about this brand ?
Some want sillage , some want subtle .
Thanks ; that's what I want .
What is the meaning of the term "skin scent" ?
a brilliant hack !
Ex-Officio ; more than $25 , but more than worth it .
Lush body spray sounds good ; thanks .
Molten Brown is mentioned in another thread .
What others leave a subtle but noticeable scent .
Looking for pre/post yoga practice .
Clean , Fresh , Sporty Scent for before and after the Gym ?
Alvarez Gomez Agua de Colonia Concentrada Eau de Cologne
Impressive list .
Thanks ; I'm also open to other than Sandalwood .
From the description CREED Himalaya may be the one .
I was thinking more along the lines of a light sandalwood , but appreciate the feedback so far .
Summer Fragrance for a Gentleman Yogi ?
"The summer edition of Jean Paul Gaultier's Le Male plays with "fresher and lighter notes such as mint and rosemary," says Francis Kurkdjian, who created Le Male."
Another one ; Gendarme ?
great question .
surprised there isn't a fragrance named SPA already .
There is a Spa cosmetics line from France called Phytomer , that has/had a men's line with a cologne or aftershave .
... don't know that 4711 has ever been bettered .
Just a couple of this type I like are , Imperiale Cologne by Guerlain , and Alvarez Gomez Agua de Colonia Concentrada
Favorite 4711 type scent ?
conceptually , it's the medicinally clean just showered scent
specifically , it's the unique powdery , eucalyptus/menthol scent .
Booster by Lacoste is the closest I've ever found .
Looking for a cologne like Gold Bond Medicated Powder .
Not a copy ; I'm not so sure .
Replica sneakers :
I think At the Barber's is a replica , an exact copy , of Pashana Cologne .
What about the others ?
Replica seems to be an exact copy of a certain scent from my past .
Not sure but think it may be Pashana Original Cologne , a cheap cologne from the U.K.
In anycase , $125 for 3.4 oz. is insane ....
Looking for a recommended place in LA that offers both Men's and Women's facials .

... thought Bleu might be considered a younger mans scent
Do you think Bleu de Chanel similar to Le Male ?
Do you think older gents , late 50's , can wear Bleu ?
Where can I get Mandom ?
It's discontinued , right ?
Thanks. Arigato . Xiexie .
I'm torn between wanting to smell like a Kyoto temple monk , an older Japanese salaryman , or L'Aventurier's girlfriend in the morning !
Thanks ; exactly what I'm looking for !
I'll start ; Comme des Garcons Series 3 Incense: Kyoto
Zio Agide by Hilde Soliani
$120 vs. aprox. $8 ; it's a bit more refined but not sure it's worth the extra $
New York Shaving Company Original Unscented Shaving Cream
Cushion , glide , lather , non-irritating ; checks all the boxes .
I've tried many creams and this one leaves my post shave skin in the...
...this smells like an EdeP version of a classic EdeC .
[QUOTE=rubegon;2706265]Hmm - many of the above-mentioned perfumes certainly have a powdery component, but I don't find that overall they smell like talcum powder.
yes , talcum powder , not powdery...
a scent like talcum powder ?
This reminds me of a medicinal talcum powder or a sweeter version of Gold Bond Body Powder .
Parfums de Nicolai New York ?
... sampled from fresh bottle in store sprayed on wrist .
...delicate for the genre.
and do I detect a trace of baby poop ?
I don't really get the notes of brown Scotch tape and glue upon application .
Anyway , love it .
Eau de Parfum or Extrait de Parfum ?
Bulgari's is best .
I agree ; it does appear to be one of a kind , but I like .
I think I'm attracted to the Musk component rather then the monoaminated alkaloids Theobromine and Phenylethylamine .
Reminiscent of a...
Similar to Smiley ?
No info in the directory .
Looking for notes , nose , ect ...
correction ; it was "t" parfum by Takashimaya that I sampled .
Is there a "female" fragrance that smells like the "men's" cologne Old Spice ?
I recently sampled a fragrance by Yosh , (don't know which one) , that inspired the question.
just realized I should change my signature line for this thread .

Where can I buy a bottle of Penhaligon's Esprit De Lavande ?
Comme Des Garçons Series 4 Eau de Cologne Citrico , a re-working of 4711 .
Thank You ; Himalaya sounds like what I'm looking for .
looking for an arctic scent .....
Can't find the "Blue" version .
The "Red" is very vaguely reminiscent of Le Male ; albeit much much lighter , with a very very light musky basenote .
I put the scent of this bodywash in the ...
This is a new body wash , but since it's “pheromone-infused” , thought forum would be interested....
Rive Gauche pour Homme = Barbasol shaving cream

I edited Classic to traditional in my post ; unable to edit the title however.
I would have to say a traditional Eau de Cologne .
This topic is probably the most overlooked and abused in the world of fragrance.
One of the beautiful characteristics of traditional Eau de Cologne is it can be worn by any age or gender.
Any specialities in Barcelona, Spain ?

your name implies you may know something about Old Hollywood ?
what was used back in the day , way back , like '20's and 30's .
The best masculine summer fragrance/cologne would be your choice of any of the versions of the original Eau de Cologne . Some examples are , Extra Vieille Jean Marie Farina by Roger & Gallet , 4711...
A better Brut than Brut ?
Thanks for the water suggestion , it's almost brilliant(ine) !
Thanks for the DD suggestion , but I can't wait two weeks !
So far I've tried Vitalis , Brylcream , brilliantine , and American Crew Pomade which has given the best results , but not enough of the "wet" look.
Going for "Old Hollywood" style .
Is there a hair tonic like Vitalis , only better ?
A*Men to that !
That's exactly what I thought , a shameless copy .
How shameful .
