For a balmy 41 degree day in the north woods - now this I call December! :beer:
This one nicely fits a space in my rotation and I enjoy it thoroughly. Excellent scent and great value! I too am glad I have it Here-here!
Oh lovely - they are simple, nostalgic and conscious
The use of empty, meaningless - meaning everything - meaning nothing word masters. Conscious really?? - as compared to all those other...
Of course such things are relative - to what you already have and what ground you want to cover
I had a bottle found it to be good - but needed to go in other directions - and relative to what I...
couple hundred rounds of ammo - loose. I mean these boxes break going to the range .
Oh wait... wrong board.....:rolleyesold:
This must be the extreme version ... :cheesy:
ditto this - I have both Vintage Fahrenheit and Absolute - they are different but both are excellent. Different moods and to me times if year. Fahrenheit is more fall spring and Absolute winter -...
Nice - congratulations :)
I stepped up to the plate .................... Dior Homme Intense
and I am loving it - woot. :
Got to say it today ... Farhenheit Absolute!
(I got a complement!! - I never get complements!!)
Well I know I like this fragrance - but I actually got a complement form a young co-worker today on it. In the madness what we call work today I forgot exactly what I had put on and had to think
Aramis Havana ;)
Well it beats going to the store and having to fight you way through a bunch of self proclaimed activists having a die in.....at least the SAs are trying to do their jobs. I mean people go to stores...
To me - its a great scent and I enjoy it very much. And I have gotten complements on it from very attractive young ladies. :)
Now in your life you have never smelled something so bad? - You were...
Some good scents there - but for me the scents and their shortness of longevity - cause me to look elsewhere
Burberry Classic (London) is a good one - although projection dies down...
No nitch for me yet - but +1 on these designers !

Cleaning up a few things - too many to hold and more to acquire!
Chanel Egoiste - SOLD !!_ 3.4 - 100 ml Tester Bottle 99% full - a few sprays - but still like new NOW - $60 shipped
Started the day sampling some Dior Homme Eau - it's ok - perhaps something for the office .. In the summer
Skied and showers and now it's Chanel Egoiste for the evening - a nice relaxing evening
Perhaps layering as in for the first half of the day A*Men and then over the top / dry down several hours later the Pure Malt for the evening ...
But it's a little much to use both at the same...
Feeling pretty good about picking up a slightly used Dior Homme 3.4 off eBay for $50 shipped.

2.5 oz Splash Bottle
Very cool and what a classic scent - the...
Vintage Azzaro Pour Homme - a classic
Warm, spicy and manly :thumbsup:
Clearly the type of girl who likes this fragrance would be one who does not... :)
Is there a category for Boxer Dropper? I mean does this work both ways with scents? :shocked:
True - true :)
Azzaro Pour Homme - Vintage :)
Oh ya - all of them
GIT - found it to be interesting - but not enough interest to coughed up the cash to get it
I settled with...Cool Water for now..............gasp! :)
Best wishes and good luck !
like you I do need to limit my spending. Not for basic financial reasons - but the MRS thinks I get a little crazy over fragrences and provides a good break on my ......
no kidding - ya at this prince I had to order one. Thanks for the heads up!!!
2nd this - Own this because of Base Notes and love it!
From my own postal experience and direct comparisons between the vintage blue bottle to the newest version - I would agree to this. Noting that it is a very good reformulation/reissue (?). Slight...
Christmas with the Inlaws - Pure Malt!!
(helps cover the drinking...)
This one is gone - thanks for all the interest!
SOLD ! :)
Chanel Egoiste Platinum
(not Platinum Egoiste)
No sticker - no box - cap has a couple of marks on the back - but the juice is in excellent condition and plenty left aprox 80%
I am looking for a bottle of Chanel Egoiste. 1-2 oz amount. Vintage or new - does not matter.
I have some things to trade and/or cash
Some things like:
Mugler Pure Havane 3.4 oz...
This ^^^ And then perhaps add DH or DHI (depending on your tastes) for something in lue of the D&G et others
Deodorant me thinks.. :)
Perhaps something from the Old Spice "Wild " Collection?
For me - in all seriousness - right now its Vintage Chanel Egoiste :)
Chanel Egoiste -
A work day from home scent - because I cant wear this to the office - HR would have issues with the reactions of all them cute 20 year olds :)
Joop Homme - vintage of course
And its a show stopper - for all the wrong reasons :)
Dolce & Gabanna Pour Homme - some nice vintage stuff
Something somewhat sunny for a cold dark. damp day in the northern plains
Good stuff Grant - appreciate your efforts
Perhpas a wall of shame sticky at the top to note the more notorious - as additional incentive to keep it all straight up and good :)
Ok got my Pure Wood in the mail today and it's pretty darn good. not too loud and in fact I am finding it to be a nice softer approach to the Amen DNA. I found Eau de Baux to be too much but this...
It does make me wonder sometimes as few in the non Basenotes world even know what a good fragrance is and as such why I get wrapped up in searching out vintages or interesting scents. For my own...
It is. There will always be another hill to climb. :)
Well I cut a deal tonight for a slightly used bottle of Pure Wood for effectively $50 - I look forward to getting this and will add my opinion on this as soon as I get it later next week
+1 on the Pure Malt and/or Pure Havane Both are excellent
Even perhaps Carven Homme!
From my understandings true fakes are not all that common - for some very popular (high selling) fragrances perhaps more so
Imitators on the other hand are more common and while often very...
Pears to Pumpkins - Comparison to to other Flankers? - which would you consider better?
Pure Wood or TOF?
Pure Wood or Pure Leather?
Good question - I would like to hear about this too
now that it's been out for a bit and with th cooler weather what do people think about this one? Compared to the others in the line and to other...
good point - agree as long as you have a known point of reference. I have found that in my [in]experience and with my skin that many times what is a fairly long lasting - good projecting sent for...
Bottom line on many of these discussions - It's based upon personal impressions. There is no absolute standard for strength or longevity as this depends on ones own personal interpertations,...
And actually more carbon dioxide is good for plant life ... and more, better, heather plants means ...more oxygen Which as I understand it is good for us :)
Genius! - The (In) Famous Double Speak
We could set up a governmentaly (public tax dollars at work) supported non profit group - create garbage in a bottle - call it something like "Big...
Eau de BS.
it's what they all wear ... In abundance at your expense
Im amazed someone could come up with 10 things to "love" about them
"Hipster" - its really just a cry for help.....Perhaps their parents did not show them enough love or something ....
Hipsters being the annoyance they are - drink PBR - so I would think Brut would be their scent of choice - so daring and fresh!
And people getting the newest version and saying its a FAKE!
To me this is a real flanker - as it sizzles with the spice (in a good and not overwhelming way) On clothing I can smell it the next day - and the notes change over time - good, interesting stuff
bang - I agree. Happens and then they think - and that bottle does look a little funny, - I must have gotten a fake!
I have found this to be very true - secondary market buyers can get totally paranoid and make crazy accusations ... and its hard to walk them back to reality
It has been a running theme and I am sure that there is some reality to it - but with all the new restrictions, reformulations, personal sensitivity, and yes sometimes overstatements on Basenotes...
(vintage of course)
Its funny - but I find that I enjoy this one as much - if not more - in the cooler weather :)
Revisited last night and I will say Burberry Classic for Men!
Its great for a classy night out on the town - at a reasonable price!
And who has friends that are walking around with hundreds in their pockets?? Heck I am lucky to have a couple bucks cash on me ...ever!
(Darn this automatic deposite thing.... I dont even get to...
Seriously - while the Pure Perfume is not a monster - it does what it should. It is more of a skin scent (get some on your shirt and you will notice it longer) but really from my adventures so far I...
Nice - that's what friends are for!
Now hit the bay and scoop another full one up for $60 :)
I am some what torn on this one - it seems as though the tar is turned down a touch. I really like the full bore tar and to me it smells stronger in the older batches
Regardless it's still an...
Up for sale - got to raise some cash
A*Men Classic 3.4 oz Tester
- 99% Full - great scent - newer version with less Tar, pleasant and lasting - Sold!!
A*Men Taste of Fragrance 3.4 oz -...
Les Notes De Lanvin II OUD & Rose
A wonderful hidden gem :thumbsup:
Love it and thats why I have been gathering as much older stock as I can - it has the tar in abundance - the newer production seem to be weaker in this area
Which means to many the new is more...
And it does smell good ! - a softer, perhaps more office/formal appropriate M7 :)
It kind of reminds me of Rive Gauche - a beautiful scent - with mixed reports on longevity and silage
Oh the conspiracy theorists will be sooo disappointed - thanks all :)
And this does make sense - why copy the reformulated? If your going through the trouble why copy the reform? - Go for the...
So here is what I have Fake or Real? I am not expert - but looks real to me - or someone spent a lot of effort faking :)
Ya - the whole "is this a fake?" thing has taken on a life of its own. Them North Korean factories must really be putting in the overtime !!! :)
M7 reformulated bottle - fakes?
While I know it's a possibility I have not heard of any cases. but would like to know - has anyone come across any?
The M7 reformulated ( clear sided bottle )...
cool - good information Hedni - thanks
I am just working on acquiring more of the - "more original" amen while I can. I started with some vintage and then received some newer juice and yes while...
I have searched a bit and my understanding is that the A*Men line started with metal bottles - silver
Then the all black rubber
But I have seen the black rubber bottles with "A*Men" noted in...
One of Hednic's Top 10
.....ok - its no his top 10 not to wear list - but I like :)
A*Men, Pure Malt - or go really crazy and make the night sizzel - go Taste of Fragrance!
I finally got some TOF and I really like it and it is a different take on the Amen DNA :thumbsup:
Encre Noir - dark, earthy... :)
And you provide the rum ...Arrrh Arrrrhhhh!
Ok I will step in it :) - But an interesting mix... Noting that I have only sampled the others - but own CW
[edit - I am talking about the vintage CW ]
DH > CW >>>>>>BDC
Apparently such rubbish sells in today's "modern society"
No - because that is not who I am.
And every time I wore it I would be reminded of what I have done. Lord knows I have made enough stupid moves in my life - but at least not this and never will
Help him out:
Terre di Hermers
You think buy blondes is cheap? Man, you have serious money! ;)
Ship it to Mexico and have someone walk it over.....:shocked:
I have not been motivated enough to even sample it - my loss I am sure
And that should cover the bases
Yardley Citrus and Woods
The Night version- which also includes the scent of cooked Beets!
Ohh yaa - nothing sets the mood better :2vrolijk_08:
A great mossy - touch of pine cologne :) If similar to PG then the vintage only - nothing like the current PG

Ok - outing my ebay seller - as really straight up, very accommodating, and embarrassingly generous :).
Its not when things all go right that a good seller matters - its what...
Yup - most of mine come from there. Now granted I am not buying $100 fragrances - but yes I do it.
you have to know what you are doing and verify as best you can. And ebay covers you from...
Ding - ding - ding! Exactly !
And I would love to out this seller if that is allowed?
