I hope you'll report back on what you think, teardrop!
I usually agree with your assessment of amber fragrances and I have a soft spot for gardenia.
The only gardenia scent I have at this point...
Sometimes testers are the only way to get a fragrance that has been discontinued or is otherwise unavailable.
I've ordered two testers so far, one from Beautyencounter and one from Fragrancenet:...
Thanks, lpp. I've read that thread and almost revived it. It's an introduction to the house (mostly info from the En Voyage website) as well as a kind offer from En Voyage about samples. There's no...
Freddie of Smellythoughts has blogged and posted some glowing reviews on the fragrances of En Voyage Perfumes.
I am intrigued by what I've read and heard, but don't find very much on-line about this...
Sorry, my mistake.
Kafka has an excellent review of Montecristo, but as of February was unable to find anywhere to buy the fragrance or sample except on-line. I got a decant from a split offered by...
BE has a 21% off sale on everything for men (Fathers Day Sale) and they have Kouros testers available.
Have you tried Montecristo yet?
I hope I get a sample of MAAI included in my delivery from Bogue Profumo! You got my attention at 'animalic chypre'.
When you get back to KER I'd be very interested if you get the 'sexy gardenia...
Thanks, deadidol. Do you know when MAAI will be released for purchase? It doesn't show up on his website yet.
There's also this entry yesterday on Antonio's Bogue Profumo Facebook page. Is this...
Based on this thread I broke out the L'Occitane Cade shower gel that I've had for years in the back of my perfume cabinet.
Wow! I only used a little bit this morning and I felt like I was being...
BRUNO FAZZOLARI Au Delà
The name fits, as does my avatar.
1740 Marquis de Sade
by Histoires de Parfums
Amouage BELOVED (Man)
Some other houses that come to mind:
Oudh Lacquer from Liz Zorn
COLOGNE RELOADED from Bogue Profumo
I thought the Hard Leather advertisement fit the first part of NIWIS's request perfectly! :evil:
The fragrance itself is more problematical. My vote goes to Mick Trick's suggestion, Masque...
Noir de Réminiscence by Réminiscence
Palmbeach had a split on Krigler's Established Cognac which I opted into.
I really like the fragrance, but it's longevity is quite brief before it becomes a skin scent.
Still, I really enjoy...
A just published review by Kafka of Vétiver Royal Bourbon.
I asked Monsieur Lambert for some more details on Vétiver Royal Bourbon and received the following response:
"This perfume is very very Vétiver smocky (sic) an leathery on the base notes."
I found these release dates on a French website (italics and bolding adding). I dont' know if they're accurate:
Vétiver Royal Bourbon sera réédité et disponible le 15 mai.
Royal Oeillet le 30...
Yeah, Vétiver Royal Bourbon is one of the Oriza L. Legrand's series of fragrances going for 90€ for 100 ml.
I find the bottle shape, label, and color of the juice very seductive. (Not to mention the...
I see that Oriza L. Legrand has a new vetiver scent available on their website: Vétiver Royal Bourbon
Has anyone had a chance to try this out?
The notes are:
Top Notes: Peppermint, Thyme &...
I've grown especially fond of L'Occitan and Imortelle de Corse, but all three are very useful additions to the fragrance repertoire.
Diptyque L'Ombre dans l'Eau
Goutal Ambre Fétiche
Oriza L. Legrand:
Serge Lutens: Ambre Sultan
I have a 50ml bottle of Rume as well. :coolold: Did Josh discontinue Rume? I don't find it listed in any of the stock list sites and he hasn't put his Slumberhouse sale page up yet on his website.
Rume...but then I dab from a 5ml freebie I got from Josh when Rume first came out and it has a fantastic honey note to go with the festivities of the spice notes. Love the honey note!
Me too! :2vrolijk_08:
USPS Tracking - Expected Delivery Day: Tuesday, February 18, 2014
Thanks for the suggestion, Buyblind.
Do you think his email is still firstname.lastname@example.org since his website has changed?
Just a heads up - Ambre Fetiche testers are on sale at Frangrancenet under Annick Goutal Orientalist (for men).
With the 20% off coupons the cost is just under $70.
Happy New Year! :smiley:
L'Ombre Fauve by Parfumerie Generale.
Just at $100 for 50 ml. Worth a test drive.
Janjanjan, like you, the HYLNDS fragrances (and story line) grabbed my attention and fit in with my fascination with Scotland and Celtic mythology. My take on Bitter Rose Broken Spear from a post on...
I'd like something along the lines of Absinth by Nasomatto coupled with a medium to dark roasted coffee bean note.
The vetiver, herbals, & wormwood with roasted coffee bean aroma would be an...
You might want to try out Arso by Profumum Roma. I believe Arso means "burnt". :laugh:
It's a bit like Olibanum by Profumum, but with a strong tree resin and camp fire opening with frankincense.
Arquiste Boutonniere No. 7
Complementing drseid's great reviews - here's Katie Puckrik's take on some of the L'Antichambre fragrances:
Katie Puckrik Smells - L'Antichambre
I'm about your dad's age and I like Le Labo Rose 31 and Bois 1920 Real Patchouly a lot.
Givenchy Vetyver and Chanel Egoiste would also be really nice as would L'Occitane Eau des Baux or Guerlain...
I really like the sandalwood from Chanel's Bois des Iles.
Strangely, though, I get days of sandalwood smelling pleasure from it when I spray a paper test strip and smell that.
Before I bought...
I have two bottles of Rume. One was a sample from Josh that came in a 5 ml bottle about a year or so ago. When I daub a little from that bottle I get a wonderful honey top note that is blissfully...
any of the 64 positive reviews would give a great explanation...
+1 for Cologne pour le Soir is possibly my limit on animalic madness, though I also think Leather Oud is great.
Just in terms of animalic - not necessarily musk related - Chanel's Antaeus gets a...
From your list: Ambre 114
When you get a chance, try a sample of Profumum's Ambra Aurea
The only one that has stopped a female friend and had her poke her head into my chest was Bois 1920 - Real Patchouly.

Fantastic! I haven't been to Florence, but perhaps this review of a scent adventure in that city will help.
Hope you report back and tell us how it went!
Enjoyed the YouTube video, thank you.
Reminds me of my first time at the Playboy Club in Chicago - when that was still cool and new.
Why not get a new fragrance for the evening, something from...
Browsing and lusting after scents on Luckyscent, I found L'Antichambre listed. Five minutes later I received an email from Luckyscent introducing this house, which I hadn't heard of...not that that's...
Arquiste Parfumeur Anima Dulcis
If you like and can wear LIDGE, you can wear Coromandel, IMO.
I don't think 'The Rock' asks for other folk's opinions, on what he can or can't wear, though. :beer:
Santal 33 again. :evil:
After working out took a shower and dabbed Santal 33 from a Luckyscent sample more than a few times.
Then went to a great Mexican restaurant with friends and all the...
Received Selection Verte today - super fast delivery and great packing against the vicissitudes of the U.S. Mail.
Thanks again, Hep!
Parfum1 has also been removed from the Stocklists...leaving Indiescents as the sole web purveyor for now, other than Josh, of course! :smiley:
I like Ambra Aurea, but it is incredibly expensive and 100 ml would last several lifetimes IMO.
I think Annick Goutal's Ambre Fetiche can still be found on beautyencounter...
I'd also suggest...
PM sent regarding Creed Selection Verte 50 ml.
I'll feel the loss not only in your splits, but in our correspondence.
You have been very generous and a gentleman in all your dealings.
Wishing you all the best and in hopes that some alternate...
PM sent on MEMO Shams split.
Thanks for offering this fragrance!

I've purchased five fragrances from him (parfumsmicallefusa) on eBay. Excellent value and service...and when there were auctions, like hednic said, amazing values.

I suggest sampling the following:
Oliban by Keiko Mecheri
Olibanum by Profumum Roma
Oliban by Mecheri is rose with smoke and a frankincense base. Perfectly unisex and alluring, maybe lighter...
Neither 'old' nor 'forgotten'.
Though it does have patchouli, I don't find it overbearing: Perles de Lalique by Lalique
It is fairly inexpensive - 100 ml for about $40.
Also like Bois D'Encens and Baie Rose 26 (you can find...

Happy Birthday, Akahina! :birthdays:
Your review of Leather Oud says it makes you happy...seems a natural!
Yatagan is a macho woody scent which you'd likely enjoy a great deal. Less versatile but very pleasurable if you like strong comfort scents which you wear for yourself.
L'Anarchiste is very light...
Did you check the plastic tube it shipped in from Les Nez? The plastic tube is labelled 8/100 on mine though the bottle itself only shows /100.
So far...smokey, woody, rooty, with a hint of...

It arrived in perfect condition.

This house produces some extraordinarily enchanting back stories for its fragrances.
Boutonniere No. 7 sounds very intriguing. Gardenia has always been a favorite flower and scent. Are there any...
Received Rume and Pear+Olive today in their new bottles etched with their names. Really fine presentation and both wrapped in individual grey fleece bags secured with a ribbon. Everything accompanied...
Just got a shipping confirmation from PayPal saying my Slumberhouse order has shipped.
I ordered from Josh the Saturday of his Thanksgiving sale. No worries.
Received my box of goodies as well today!
Four split fragrances, each wrapped meticulously and all arriving in perfect condition.
The box was a model of how to ship overseas. Once again Kron...

I get a strong honey note in Slumberhouse's Rume - well, sometimes I do, sometimes I don't, but when I do it's great.
In fact, I bought Rume based on the honey note as when I do smell it it drives...
There are too many Shades of Amber to list a 'best', but L'Ombre Fauve is my go to amber as the weather turns cooler.
A 'furry' amber that goes well with autumn and winter.
Just ordered Pear+Olive and Rume.
Two ends of the spectrum and I think two of Josh's best sellers. :happy:
60's - British Sterling, English Leather
70's - see above
80's - Kouros, British Sterling, English Leather
90's - see above

10's - see wardrobe :thumbsup:
You might sample Parfumerie Generale's L'Ombre Fauvre or Chanel's Coromandel.
(Parfumerie Generale has some great scents that could suit your sweet tooth and they're not too expensive - most can be...
Leather fragrance: Miller Harris Cuir d'Oranger
Fragrance with a leather note: Armani Privé Cuir Noir
LIDG is one of my favorites and I never get a powdery note...but then it's also not a patchouli bomb for me either.
Leather Oud arrived today in excellent condition!!!
Thank you Jonathan - especially for waiting to mail the fragrance for so long!
Sending best regards!
+1 - My first niche and my favorite amber. (Wish it came in something other than 100 ml, though!)
Have you tried any of the Parfumerie Generale fragrances? I really like Intrigant Patchouli and Ombre Fauvre. There are some great reviews here and elsewhere that might pique your interest.

The new Jeke sounds incredible...thanks starshipvelcro!
My best Autumn fragrance (but I knew I needed it) is also one of Josh's - Rume - the honey note is a killer - in a good way!
