I'd be interested in reading people's experiences with Portrait of a Laddie.
Styx opens with bergamot and violet. It is somewhat reminiscent of Paris but the violet is more nuanced and there is a faint woody backdrop and a slight earthiness.
Moments in, there is a a dry...
My first impression of Coty Paris was Violet Canels chewing gum with a subtle musk presence.
It seems loud synthetic sandalwood accords combos are en vogue around the office. :(
I'll wear just about anything that doesn't project much or fresher/cleaner things that project well. I'm...
I applied La Rose Jaqcueminot on my wrist and the first smell presented a spicy, airy, and somewhat jammy rose with just a slight aldehydic quasi-wax feel. Minutes into the wearing, I noticed a cedar...
Just to report that I've received the samples from kumquat the day before yesterday. A i'm traveling until Sunday, I will likely not be able to properly sample until then - but I'll try....
Royal Oud or Mayfair.
... or quit while you're ahead.
I like the spotted eggplant, too.
He will probably contact you prior to shipping your order. ;)
I'll do it. :)
He's busy. :)
The compliment was female.
the thread is about female compliments, not compliments from females.
Instead of wasting a post and everyone's time (like others have) and just saying that I don't like any of the three; I'll say that Opus II would be the one I'd wear the most of the three.
I came over just to subscribe to read people's impressions, but can be the second third if nobody has jumped in yet.
Twistedlily and Luckyscent should be having sales. Slumberhouse is available through them.
Grev by Slumberhouse got the best compliment I've heard in a while (and I get compliments on my fragrances regularly, mind you).
My opinion is that you should give White a try before making a decision. It is not that difficult to acquire samples of it.
No. I never leave the house. :vrolijk_1:
Yeah, that was my first thought "wait a minute, H Mart reeks of fish." Although I can see the combination of the place's smell plus perfume getting even more so overwhelming.
Whatever you do, OP,...
I've only tried Blacks Club Leather and it is one of my favorites of late.
D&G pour homme, M7, Black Afgano, Patou pour homme prive.
My first thought was LADDM, but that's on your shortlist already. Otherwise:
Slumberhouse Norne or Ore.
Histoires de Parfum 1899 Hemingway.
It makes a big difference in the marketing of a fragrance, yes.
None by Slumberhouse.
Well, I requested a sample from Luckyscent with my purchase of Iris Cendre and they didn't include it (not surprised there) nor substitute with anything else (not surprised there either). I might...
Norne - not exactly common but worth seeking out at least a sample of.
This is being released the first of April.
Since it seems you have tested and liked all the ones you list; just go with the one that is the least distracting to you.
Aventus (which was formulated to be a feminine fragrance but Creed decided it would sell more if it was marketed to men).
Shalimar is the most popular among the members in the site's user base that identify as 'female' according to the SOTD page just like Aventus is for those that identify as 'male'
Naomi Goodsir Iris Cendre (blind buy)
They've tried to make him the "face" of several fragrances before. However, the photographers haven't had powerful enough lenses to zoom in enough to not make him the "face and half torso" so they...
Cleanest: Molecule 01
Dirtiest: I dunno.. maybe Sadanne or Oud 27.
What I've understood is that you bought one version and didn't like it. Then you bought this version and didn't like it either. You also happen to have yet another version on order which you will...
Just Starting Forum thread types:
"I'm young so what should I wear?"
"What should I wear to work?"
"I have a small collection, what should I buy next?"
"I'm trying to sell this but can't...
I tend to stay away from most fragrances listing any type of berries in their structure.
Bel Ami, Fahrenheit, Aventus.
I'd leave them like that. You will just expose them to more oxygen (oxidation) by combining them.
Some pros to leaving them separate:
- Convenient to carry with you and dispose of on-the-go....
Oh, boy, Malle dives deeper into flanker territory.
Although I can't say that I'm not curious to smell this.
Because no manly man would want to smell like a fragrance that Tom Cruise peddles.
Ballena de la Pampa.
Late to the party:
I applied a spray of Rume on my wrist less than an hour ago. The immediate thing I noticed was a blast of cola and less "festivity" than what I remember the square bottle...
From what I remember, the notification is sent through Paypal (as an update to the shipping details on your order). I am sure that if you contact Slumberhouse for shipping confirmation after placing...
I the d on "You smell do good!" made me read it like she had a stuffy nose. ;)
Got two at the same time on Royal Mayfair last night.
Most mothers are female.
Does she have a cold?
Retailers (brick and mortar as well as web-based) will have the same price as that on the Slumberhouse website. So your best bet is to check for e-tailers that offer free shipping or that...
I've worn it during softball season and it's nice.
Whoa. Looking at current listings, I got it in January for less than 1/3 of the current asking prices.
Thanks for the clarification. I did mean Extract of Mysore Sandalwood. I was lucky enough to find a bottle of it within the past year at a more than reasonable price. It's one of my favorites,...
This one is worth keeping an eye out for.
I've only ordered from them once (Tea for Two). Placed my order on Jan 20 and received an email notification of shipment dispatch three days later. UPS delivered the parcel on Jan 28.
Friday night (technically saturday morning as this happened over the span of midnight to 6ish AM) was compliment night for me. Got two compliments on Red Vetyver and two compliments on my watch - by...
I appreciate Musc Ravageur... I just don't like it.
My vote would go for Back to Black.
All of the "Is my Aventus fake?" threads. The task will kill your soul, but at least you'll learn of the dangers of following hype blindly and it will potentially save you beaucoup bucks..
Hard LEather, Yatagan, Musk Oud.
Oh, come on. Let's not exaggerate. That's 999,993% fake, at most.
I got a hernia just reading this, but I rubbed some Aventus on it and the hernia subsided and I was left with a six pack. Believe the hype.
As per Merriam-Webster:
1vintage noun vin·tage \ˈvin-tij\VIntage: Term that people use to describe their possessions in order to feel better about owning them.
Les Nombres d'Or - Vetyver
Turtle Vetiver Back
Thanks for all your hard work over the years, Rich! You've been the best curator of splits I've had the pleasure of buying from.
and many, many more.
I have not noticed problems adding to my wardrobe (haven't done it in about a week), but I do have difficulty seeing my SOTDs recorded. I will click on the button and the SOTD page that loads will...
Hooray for more sample passes! I, too, am interested to read what everyone has to say about these as I have yet to experience this house's offerings/
I like this fragrance because I have bad taste. :bath:
The only one I can remember negative comments about is Millesime Imperial.
Not at all. This stuff is great so far.
For some reason my first thought of when to wear this tells me "on hot rainy days."
Lothair opens with a bright citrus burst with juniper and slight spices. Immediately after that first impression, I noticed the greenness of the fig. The combination at the top works together to give...
Blind-bought it and it should be waiting for me when I get home today. I hope I didn't have a sample sent and find it arriving later than the bottle. :bath:
I received the samples, safe and sound, from Ms. cello and have this to say about the two I've tested so far:
Levantium: The oud is evident straight away with spices complementing the top aspects...
I do not expect this one to be ground-breaking, but rather a good (to great) cologne. It looks like it's more an offering that caters the new-found exposure that the house is to get with the recent...
Here's me keeping the momentum going (I'm in!). Thanks, Jimmy and 30 Roses.
Seconding Code Sport.
Creeds, Bond no 9s, Acqua di Parmas,
They contain alcohol in high quantities. ;)
A good way of getting people to suggest expensive fragrances is to give them a budget ceiling ($100 in this case). ;)
Terre d'Hermes is not as strict a vetiver as others suggested in this thread,...
It's easier to copy an "original opinion" and make it their own if they're talking about the same thing. It's a bro thing.
One spray. No more.
I'd also like to add that it'd be wise to spray on the wrist as spraying on the chest (or anywhere close to the face/nose) might be overwhelming before you know what to expect.
Nasomatto Blamage. Beware, it's got its haters.
I sampled this and ordered 3 bottles just in case.
