Great update! I loved the line about placing more emphasis on the smell over the performance of a fragrance! That's my philosophy as well.
Well done sir!
It's the ashy note! Ombré leather lasts as long as Tuscan Leather on me. No worries about longevity for me (it's almost too long lol) . It is easily perceived also. Excellent flanker.
I'm glad I have no longevity issues with this one. I could smell it the next morning and it was from a lil sample vial they give you at Nordstrom. I just received a 50 ml decant. I hope it performs...
Creation E to a lesser extent.
That 10% makes all the difference. What use is it to have a high end muscle car that is overkill for your every day mundane tasks like running erands and going to the grocery store? Tuscan Leather is...
Your Least favourite: Tabarome mellisime
Most Unique: Jardin D' Amalfi
Worst Performer: Virgin Island Water
Yet to try: Vintage Tabarome
Wish you owned but don't: Full bottle...
i own and use L'occitane Baux shower gel and it is excellent. I want to get theJubilation XXv one but its a bit pricier than i care to spend at the
As long as you have an office door to spare your co workers :)
I'll echo ithat its not something i would recommend anyone wear to work. That being said, one spray on the body should be fine.
Noir De Noir would be my choice. Neither one is "office safe" per se as they are pretty heavy fragrances. That being said, you can wear one spray under your clothing and still perceive it without...
Ebay and the Facebook groups. They cost more than the current version. I dont think the reforumlation made it sweeter from what ive read.
I agree with the highlighted. I suppose if i own more than a couple of their products, i like the house? I have no affinity to any houses though.
For going out, from your list above, i would say Noir de Noir.
My favorite overall used to be Italian Cypress for me, but after encountering Ombre Leather 16, we have a new champion. Excellent...
This has easily become my fav Tom Ford. It is very similar to Tuscan Leather, and its perfect. It smells like a lighter Godolphin to me. I am definitely getting a large decant of it
OP for something unique and if you dont mind a mild oud, look into Kalemat by Arabian Oud. You will smell great and i bet no one around you will be wearing it.
Try out Cedrat Boise if you...
Ill send you a pm shortly.
Two completely different frags. But cedrat Boise all day.
D&G By Man, a partial Gucci Envy and back up bottle of Aventus. I will get rid of them soon.
Xerjoff Casamorati 1888. I got a 15ml discovery set vial and had to get the big bottle immediately.
Did you end up getting puchasing from lily direct? if so, did you get a magnetic cap?
In this order for me:
I had Uden, didnt care for the dry down, and sold it
I'm wearing Jubilation XXV today. Its 90 degrees outside and its not cloying to me.
Italian Cypress all day!
Old thread but ill contribute:
Listen to this man. Great advice.
Or brilliant. They already have the "boys" market covered, if they could convince women to buy it for themselves, that's a bigger marketbase and more $$ in the bank for them
You dont really need a massive projector as you will be very close to people in a club, especially if you are dancing.
Anyway, pure malt is a good one.
You find Pulp "thin"?
I don't think this store carries the private blend line.You will probably have to head to Tysons corner or Chevy Chase to try these.
Nice reviews Remik
Kalemat- Arabian Oud
Sent you a pm.
haha i was going to ask the same thing. And how do quite a few of you know how the set of a 70 's porn smells like?
I wouldn't blind buy it. Luckily, I was able to try it out at perfums du France when the owner recommended it. Beautyspin carries the line at a discount if you ever try it and decide to purchase.
I tried it a while back. It didn't come off as synthetic to me, but i recall thinking it may have longevity issues. I liked the way it smelled back then and put it on a list of things i would want to...
It is a pretty weak fragrance over the past few years. As for your question, take your pick from the provumum roma line. Their Neroli is one of the most potent frags i have tried on.
Thank you. I thought i was imagining things...
I guess that explains why the use of oakmoss was restricted
Tuscan Leather and/or Godolphin. My wife says its too "musky" for her.
Bergamot 22 and Nio would be my recommendations..
Its an excellent fragrance and i just picked up a decant yesterday. I think its not discussed because it has that tag of being "mature" The dry down is one of my favorite things to smell, and it...
You are not alone. It is unwearable to me.
THANK YOU!! you would think some people have a gun pointed to their head forcing them to respond to EVERY thread.
@ OP mine is Green Irish Tweed as well.
i agree with this 100%
Give it another shot, but it is possible that it just isn't for you. And there isn't anything wrong with that :)
And then when he digs up and posts in one of these old threads, he will get yelled at...
I got a sample with a purchase i made a couple of days ago, and I'm wearing it today. I put some on about noon on my way out to lunch, and got the following reaction upon my return to my office about...
I tried a sample i received today and it has impressive longevity to me. Even though there isnt any oud in it (at least not listed) it acts as if there is some in there, and is constantly sending...
I cant imagine anything stronger than Black Aoud. I got a sample months back and one dab was enough to be perceptible in my office the entire day.
Why are people called out for posting relevant topics in old threads? Isn't that what they are supposed to do to avoid multiple threads over the same topic?
anyway, someone found M.I. to be...
Have you tried Xerjoff Richwood? I think it checks all the marks for you.
I know the price is found to be prohibitive by some, but its the most incredible creamy sandalwood base that I've ever...
Oh yea that's the sweet spot. You can fit a range that spans from XS to Medium depending on the manufacturer. And there are usually options left in one of those sizes at the clearance racks. :)
Welcome back! posting ITT so i get notifications when you post.
Thierry Mugler Ultra Zest.
Cant agree more with the above. Most compliments i receive come in 2 settings (1) when people actually come close enough to me to smell me or (2) very shortly after application when it is still...
I can see how Sri (i think thats how it is spelled) could come off as not interested in helping, She does stand back and allow you to explore to your hearts content, and i truly appreciate SA's like...
Check out reviews on Amazon.
frags with less online hype these days
1. Pure Malt
3. Windsor/Royal Mayfair
What an apt gif LOL
For Honey and Tobacco in your list, i would choose Back to Black. I do not get any Honey/ Tobacco from Ambre Naguile and Kalemat.
For overall smell, i would take Kalemat over everything else on...
What? Thats still available. It was restocked on beautyspin 2 days ago.
Oh well, if Italian Cypress goes, we still have Z-14.
Ha sounds like you are the perfect person to talk to!
Thank you. I called and they confirmed they have one left of the item i am interested in. I will place my order before the coupon expires...
Thanks Hednic. Have you ever purchased from this site? Interested in getting something here, but the Four Seasons sells fragrances? i wonder who fulfills their orders for them
This is a tough one. I personally would go with Cedrat Boise as its the "easiest" to wear of the three. Uden is too heavy for me for the summer heat, and Nio can be a bit bracing on the opening. I...
Blue de Channel, Dior Homme and flaknkers, La Nuit and L'Homme.
Yea l'erbolario is a pretty good substitute for AN. A lot more affordable too. oajan by parfums de Marley is also similar and an excellent fragrance
I agree with this. Especially when it comes to "wearability" For uniqueness, amouage will win hands down.
I have tried and/owned all of the above except for Golden Boy and i think Aoud leather. Of the three, the closest to me is La Yuquawam and Charles Street is the "furthest". My favorite from the list...
There is a lot of good information in this thread
Xerjoff Casomarati 1888
Nice. Thanks for sharing. It's good to have another site to purchase from. The bottles don't bother me one bit.
nice! thanks for the review. i hope to read your thought on galloway if/when you get it.
A lot of people on these boards do not care about the marketing labels. If it smells good, it will be worn regardless of the gender it is marketed towards.
I had the same thought.
Encre Noire Sport
Interesting. That's the reason i asked. I recently acquired Galloway and read that people likened it to Lalique White on Frangtica. I haven't tired Lalique White, so I wanted to get Mythrol's...
With the incense, Spirtuese Double Vanille has a bit of a burnt sugar accord to me.
Have you smelled Galloway by Parfums de Marly?
Still voting for Nio but i suspect colonia will pull off the upset.
Tuscan leather is the runner up
proabably the roja dove with gold flakes in it
For me in what i own, Kalemat by Arabian Oud fits the opulent definition
This is my experience as well.
Nah not at all at least not in my case as long as you hand your clothes up after wearing and you rotate your wardrobe. I wear mostly creeds and those dissipate in a day or two. I could see that...
Go ahead and crown Nio king already :)
J/k Nio is a bit of an enigma to me. That opening is a bit too strong and green in my opinion. I love the dry down, but at that point, the fragrance is...
Interesting concept. Its plausible, afterall, the rancid smells emanating from some peoples feet and shoes have absolutely no problems rising up to nose level. I personally avoid spraying around my...
I wish i experienced this with Tuscan leather. It dries down to stale ashtray/cigarette breath smell to me.
Yes whatsapp is user friendly. Its just like another messenger application. If you can use a smartphone, you will have no issues. Look your money is already out there. You wanted to get a fragrance,...
Very nice review. It is my favorite vetiver and im not a fan of vetivers at all. Which version did you test? The discontinued extrait or edp or parfum?
Kalemat and remnants of Dior Vetiver Extrait
Do you have access to whatsapp? They are very responsive (at least they were for me) when i contacted them via whats app. Their number is +96599123466. In January, i purchased Kalemat from them and...
It lasts all day on me as well. It stops projecting after about 3-4 hours but i clearly smell it on my clothes all day and even subsequent days if my clothes are in a hamper. That being said, i do...
Yes. I prefer la Yuqawam to Tuscan leather. For a college student, I would recommend Eros every single time over Tuscan leather. Especially for the purposes you plan to use it.
Thanks for the update. I'll stop by and check out some of their newer stuff.
I second kalemat by Arabian oud
33 bottles (2 are back ups) so 31 unique bottles. A similar amount in decants.
Way too much for me. I use pretty much all but two of them every month.
Yes Aventus. Dont knock it until you try it ;)
I cant imagine anyone finding the performance of Tuscan Leather as weak. Its too strong for me that i now prefer Godolphin over it.
