yey portrait of a lady, one of my beloveds
happy anniv basenotes!!
btw, any link to see the whole list?
i bought all three CPUH, 3rd Man & Yatagan.. all recent, so non-vintage
Yatagan was the only one i liked/loved/use
18 yo i wld recommend start with pour un homme or yatagan..
me! i am a fan.. i finished a few bottles a decade or so ago.. im not sure if i want to go back to using it though.. i think it still has one of the more distinctive scents among the fresh family of...
in my younger years i would have chosen Safari.. i remember i hated pasha back then
now im older i prefer pasha
but even back then i never got to finish my one big bottle of safari.. i...
i would still wear these if i feel like wearing them private or not; these are just those that i tend to use more/exclusively in private
Hypnotic Poison - it's very comforting and sometimes so...
this is an old thread but brough a smile to my face :p it has probably some of the funniest & memorable quotable quotes so far for me
anyway i landed here coz i check in once in a while to see if...
im not surprised
i love the frag
i dont wear it much though, havent finished my small bottle
CDG avignon / kyoto / zagorsk
its no typo, im sulking at home so im playing with these
ooh.. interesting! i hope it becomes available at my area's sephora
ive only loved the original DH though so am curious what this would be like
some names mentioned in one chatroom i saw (but this was more than a month ago) were One million and Invictus
im not a fan of A*men but am familiar with it and am also surprised it doesnt have good longevity/sillage on you
i have B*men and it has good longevity on me, im just assuming it would have been...
just an update
i was in the process of purchasing Full Incense from the montale website when i noticed they didnt have Singapore in the country list, so thats an 'X'.. and checking ebay in the...
ah thanks for the info!
err.. im not sure why my question thread was closed
anyway ive read about this montale/mancera/tanelli thing
tnx for the...
has anyone emailed or transacted online with montale recently?
sent several emails asking about their shipping process/info, sometimes i would receive a copy of my msg most times not, and i...
not really on sheets.. i usually spray curtains for the whole room
if i do on sheets its usually the lush dirty body spray or some calming incense like CDG kyoto
(i though i replied :))
well i got to retry the oval bottles at the store, though this was a week or so ago so my recollection may not be that fresh
my impression was that in general the ovals...
my 'classic' diptyque obsession started with Jardin Clos, bottle circa 2007
i was looking for a watery white floral scent thats potent, memorable and not heavy in the usual way for a perfume.....
no one asked but id just like to share.. ordered a sample set -- containing incense rose, lonestar memories, l.a.d.d. marocain, incense extreme & une rose chypree -- last time from tauer.. tried them...
thanks so much folks for all the insights
i'll (most probably) request this as a sample then :)
has anyone tried the tauer pentachords Verdant?
robin from nowsmellthis liked it and i am tempted to buy it unsniffed as my nose usually agrees with her 'likes'..
though just looking around in...
with all due respect, i think lutens SMLR is as unisex as a unisex rose can be.. from lutens i own and love the smell of un lys a la nuit but i dont wear them out deeming them 'too feminine' for my...
i work in Singapore and have probably seen a few frangipani trees around.. though i remember it more from my childhood in the philippines where there were lots of it around our school campus.. and it...
ah yes indeed :) :(
like 'fountain' here though, i dont really put moisturizer on my body.. anyway for me, spraying perfume is the last thing i do before i go as i assume it give my body time to...
i own eau noire and have samples of sables.. i love eau noire but would probably love it more if the lavender top notes stayed throughout to maintain the extra kick.. but like i said, i love it...
mechant loup is the only one i have.. i dont recognize immortelle in this either.. hmm..
diptyque virgilio smells of herbs.. i think thyme..
i wasnt planning on buying and was out to get a gift for my friend, didnt find what i was looking for her so i got this for myself.. never tried this before and was just curious since...
hmm.. im quite a fan of dior so am looking forward to this collection, thanks for mentioning this release.. i think they're trying to kill my wallet.....
ei?? didnt know i was in the female frag forum.. hehe.. sorry.. anyways.. since im here.. same questions for those who have tried.. tnx
(too) spicy sounds good to me :)
not familiar with lyric so thinking randomly, does it in any way similar to either tauer incense rose? or diptyque l'ombre too?
im kinda agreeing with this.. seems "older designers" for me too..
congrats on your purchase.. sounds awesome..
among the mentioned i have only tried le male which i own and a*men which i dont..
well, no one's asking :) but anyway, for me, basing on those you have named, my taste has somewhat 'changed' the...
hahaha.. what is the message of this
personally i dont like polo on me.. but i like the smell in itself
and IMO it doesnt smell 'old' if thats what you mean.. it's classic, but not old.. to my nose at least.. i dunno about girls but...
nice name.. average odour
MKK?? woooww :P nasty and beautiful.. definitely a must try from lutens.. but like i said, many call it nasty/dirty.. let us know if you liked it
i suggest daim blond.. classy, unique & easy to...
yup indeed :P rephrased in a milder manner
not directly related.. but it just came to my mind how annick goutal releases certain fragrances in both 'female' and 'male' bottles :) a his and hers of the same scent (dunno if any other house does...
haha.. true :) i wonder if anyone has started a thread called "what's your favorite "I'm a man, come and take me" fragrance"
a lot of articles i've come across say that "jasmine is considered as the “King of Flowers"".. and yes, they call rose the "Queen"
and it seems to be more taboo for men to wear 'feminine' fragrances than the other way around.. used to remember my younger days when people in school consider girls to be cool wearing eternity for...
Lutens Fleur de Citronnier
i like to compare BK more to lolita lempicka AM & bvlgari black (especially in aura & style) which are all done by the same perfumer.. and for my nose/skin, it lies somewhere in between.. actually...
totally not the same league..
i love both houses but:
whether you like the weird comparisons of dior homme to makeup etc etc, dior homme is a unique scent.. l'homme smells similar to many...
ah.. never got to try that :) sounds awesome..
i have FDOrangeur i dont really wear it out as i find it a tad too heavy or syrupy and it's a bit too feminine-ish for my taste.. but its nice to smell once in a while..
fleur de citronnier i...
oh is it? just came from the lutens counter here last week and they didnt have it yet and didnt have any news either.. alrightee then, thanks!!
mine doesnt have the gaultier at the back.. i have two bottles both no back mark..the bottom has the imprint though and smells authentic.. got one from the mall gaultier counter the other one from a...
any idea if lutens will still release an exclusive scent to the export line for the holidays 2010?
havent heard any news from the lutens counter at my area..
i do wear some of them.. rochas femme, diorella et al.. they used to be feminine but were reformulated are still for women but are more masculine now and etc etc etc.. anyway all im saying you dont...
i think i grew up with my parents not really using any particular perfumes, so none that i can remember.. but i do remember pretty well how they smell :) i just know my mom is fond of scented...
lol.. and you are still using it (and loving it if my assumption is correct)?? im so coveting this.. hahaha.. my friends are so gonna kill me if i mistakenly wear it out
thanks.. that was very informative.. will take note.. and will also retest chergui to see if it is indeed the hay note that i am sensitive to or the thyme.. i dont remember being migraine-induced by...
i hope i dont get curry overdose as i plan to purchase l'autre unsniffed!! anyway all the classic diptyques have been beautiful even if weird..
is the curry accord in Fougere Bengale more potent...
reading reviews on parfum d'empire's Fougere Bengale puts it on my must try list..
eau noire is one of my favorites and there's something about sables that overwhelms me to wear it but i love it...
thanks much to all for the comments and suggestions..
will do!! am waiting for the f.malles to come here at our area.. should be around january 2011
just an addendum.. it seems it's not purely...
one of my oldies n goodies too,, i'll hunt for this when i see a price that is right :)
bought body kouros a month or two ago.. didnt like it though on myself.. big part is because shared a lot of similarities with lolita lempicka AU which was spawned by the same perfumer, and probably...
its my 100th post :) so am spending it here
bought some of my old but good friends.. m7, dune PH & dior homme.. loved them, loving them still :)
Fille en Aiguilles does indeed have similarities.. so i guess it's the pine/pine-like accord that i am liking..
im not sure if i 'love' the stewed fruits emanating from FEA though, i think i prefer...
not very surprised, but i didnt expect there would come a point i would like it a lot too.. i've used it a lot in the office as well.. my feeling towards it fluctuates though.. i remember this from...
i agree.. was reading the notes list of fou and though about polo green, but i though nah, polo green IS polo green..
hmm.. will have to retry b*men.. honestly dont remember how it smelled like as...
yup i have tried that before and i think you're right, it does have have a similar feel to fou.. for some reason, i didnt buy a bottle for myself though (although i gave one as a gift to a friend).....
hmm.. too many combinations that i like..
so for now im thinking a comfort scent which is probably a crisp incensed lily.. (i have passage d'enfer but doesnt quite do it..)
something to the tune...
i bought it 'quite' unsniffed as well.. i didnt care for it at first and left it alone for quite some time.. but now it's one of my faves..
but to be honest, i dont really consider it a 'sexy'...
can anyone recommend a possible alternative to l'artisan's fou d'absinthe? my bottle is almost finished and i like it very much.. but although i really want to love it more, i was always hoping...
kouros & opium pour femme
supposed to tie with m7 but anyway, i chose the classic one over my favorite, so am happy m7 is leading :P
if only this voting boosts sales of m7.. hehe
which is why i dont like it on me.. am ok with powdery, but i find it mostly too sweet.. same as sandalwood :) but i love these scents by themselves and i love smelling them on people
if times and...
hehe.. oops.. so far am the only one who voted miel de bois.. pls dont shoot!! it's weirdly one of my faves
anyways was there any criteria for this 'cutting'? just curious.. or maybe i missed out...
i have read and personally believe fahrenheit has been reformulated.. the classic version is one of my favorites so it was a bit of disappointment for me.. the older version has a sharp green violet...
if my nasal memory is accurate, most common are bvlgari scents.. from aqua to blv..
i also know a few who wear sport scents by chanel or bleu..
not so much of 1 million yet.. maybe in...
for potent fragrances i usually spray on my wrists and use that to apply elsewhere re-spray wrists then re-apply, etc.. so it's easier to wash off if i feel i've oversprayed :)
i havent owned...
o, thanks man :)
maybe this is your view, and it's a great view, but it's neither right nor wrong; on the other hand it's also neither right nor wrong that (perhaps) many people dont view this to be the gauge for a...
i had wanted to come up with a similar thread.. glad u started one..
when i got assigned to shanghai i had brought along my opium PH eau d'orient and happened to buy a bottle of eau d' cartier...
heavy & warm - yes IMO
spicy - depends on what spicy is for you.. if you find the opopanax accord there spicy then it's a yes
masculine - hard to define such for diptyque as most of their...
pls do (stay).. i like your posts :)
chill n cheers!!
oops.. is there a way to delete posts?
lovely collection :) and beautiful photographing too!!
may i know what those are on the right side of the 1st photo, the ones that look like violet chess people.. they look cute :)
another wow collection!!
when one has this much perfume, does one feel like he has all the perfume to last a lifetime??
id probably steal from u :P
it's a wow collection :)
the kilian bottle is classy but is that the usual box packaging?? it's whoa nice!!
it's a bit cold so i topped some parfum sacre over ck One.. cheers!!
interesting good scent.. very linear so what you smell at first is what you'll get all the way.. it smells like chocolatey spice (not quite gourmand though)..
not my usual spicy trip though.. so...
hmm?? what happened to m7.. reformulated?? i'm late with the news..
how different is it? hope it is not so different from the ones i've been using before.. it's one of my all time faves :)
none (or none yet)..
i seem to enjoy all my perfumes even with generous amounts.. otherwise, i either dont purchase or if i have it already, ditch the perfume if they eventually become...
lol at this.. which is why this scent is a must try for me :) sounds really interesting
though am voting from those that i have tried and liked..
followed by polo green, drakkar & kouros
havent smelled vintage antaeus so am not able to pick it..
dunno why but sea water always make me think of l'artisan Navegar
am not a big fan of it though
on the side, J del Pozo Quasar?
and agree with the one who said there's currently too many fragrances around to probably produce something really iconic among the rest..
speaking of iconic..am i...
was hoping at least one will mention lolita :P will have to agree with u.. i prefer lolita lempicka AM over body kouros.. unfortunately on me, body kouros is too subtle and i do sense the camphor in...
me.. i think patchouli is comforting but i dont think i have much perfumes with patchouli as primary note.. i have a lot of patchouli oils though..
love this.. was just thinking of a thread like this.. luckily saw one :)
comforts scents are 'seasonal' for me too, depends on the day and my mood.. though most often are either simple sweet...
fahrenheit too.. but ironically my testing recollection of the reformulated version was that there was less (or none) violet blast in the opening and a softer version of the gasoline leather...
