Amouage Journey man - LOVE the opening of pepper and tobacco , 4 hours later the base SUX
I got a bottle of neroli from tmoran (thanks again man)
My take : it's a great frag!
To my nose it's a cross between neroli portofino and neroli portofino forte! Get a solid 6-8 hours of...
Funny that you post this. I have been dying to try some more FM. I recently tried Carnal Flower as well as VE and MR. All are extremely high quality and great frags.
I was hoping to try a few...
Ive been in this "hobby" for about 2 years now. I have spent $7-8K and bought/sold/traded/given away/used so much fragrance its ridiculous.
This is truly an addicting hobby, and as fun as it...
Success by donal trump ;)
When does this 2 for 1 start?
Thanks for the reply.
Do you find oajan too sweet or cloying?
Did a search and came up empty. Looking for suggestions on a male or unisex frag that has the best and most prominent cinnamon note. I'm not looking for tobacco based scents with...
I really enjoy this fragrance. Most have been very critical of it since its release but after the initial hatred wears away I think this will be a crowd favorite in the designer realm for a while
Eucalyptus, Gin, pine, rose, cedar .........
Off the top of my head these are mine in order of my favorites:
(Very distant behind Windsor),
2: Pure white cologne, Aventus, Royal Mayfair, Royal oud
3: GIT, millesime...
Would be interested in blind buying but can't find it for sale on the Internet
Cape heartache. Best pine scent I've tried. Pine and fruit and a hint of smoke.
windsor is my #1 fragrance. I absolutely LOVE it. So when I read about the new mayfair months ago I was eager to see what it would be like.
I recieved a carded sample from the boutique in the...
Cape heartache and MOAT are FBW for me. Absolute powerhouses for the cool weather. I would mention that they are not compliment getters. But I truly don't wear these for compliments. On a cool fall...
Air of despair
The new imaginary authors. Can't wait til it gets here!
baie rose 26 is better smelling to me than r31.
poivre 23 is a masterpiece, but 1-2 sprays is more than enough, so 280/50 ml or 440/100ml is just out of the question in my opinion
I have only worn 09 Windsor, but it's my favorite fragrance and I've worn it in lots of different settings. I love it all year round, but have found that in high temps with high humidity, the...
Costa azzurra has tobe given a few FULL wearings before deciding against it in my opinion. There is a very nice driftwood note that emerges after the plain Jane aroma dies out. CA is one that I get a...
Pure white cologne
Spice and wood
Bleu de Chanel
Maybe I'll just sell my others.
The outlets are offering 20% off this weekend. If you go back ask about the coupon. The outlet I was at had the bottles listed at $59. So I pulled up coach's website and showed them the $48 price and...
for the money (at least at $38 each), you cant find better everyday scents. All 3 of these blow out 90% of the designers at your local sephora IMO. Extremely impressed by these
Went to a coach outlet today in northern va. Got all three coach mens edp's for $38 each. Couldn't beat that.
They still had a large inventory of each one of the bottles in...
Nio is the king of citrus IMO. It lasts all day and more.
Pwc is one of the best scents I have ever tried. Just doesn't last more than 4-6 hours for me
Can't speak on l'humaniste
xerjoff nio or uden? is anyone already splitting these?
I will take the other remaining 20 ml of JDA and you can ship it with dcason92's package. Just PM with a price
Pure white cologne / Original Cologne from creed
How about selling it mr Hyde? Pm me lol
If you haven't tried IB, PLEASE give it a full wearing or two and experience the dry down.
I sprayed some on a shirt and went back a day later and it was magical. Bought a large amount on the...
If I had to start over, or could give any advice to a new person to this hobby, it would simply be to not skimp on expensive frags. I spent (and lost) SO much money trying to find those cheap frags...
The dry down of Royal oud, for me, is where it's at. I love the juice and am surprised at how many people compliment it
thanks for the replies!
This is a great thread.
I'm curious about which of these above fragrances is a fresh/clean rose. Windsor is my favorite frag because of the beautiful rose in the dry down. Anything out there that...
Lol! Windsor by creed "from mothballs to magnificent"
I'm down for a flacon if it's similar to 09 or 10. Both are excellent IMO
Without sounding rude, I find this very hard to believe.
This rumor has been released numerous times before from other retail SAs. I certainly hope it's true as I only have around 80mls...
i prefer the edt based on scent. i enjoy the drydown of edt much more than the edp
I consider it part of the "millesime" base, shared by most of the millesime line from creed.
Either love it or hate it it seems.
I love it!
Don't recommend using frags at the gym
But YSL L'homme sport smells ok if I wear it to the gym occasionally
you devil you, DO NOT unfriend me haha
if you would consider niche, check out the creed millesimes if you havent already
Imperial, SMW, and himalaya work well for me in hot/humid summertime conditions
PWC is the only cologne in my collection that I can say i would enjoy bathing in.
I cant get enough of it. Im not sure what it is about it specifically that draws me in; but it does.
High heat AND humidity - Creed Erolfa
High heat - VIW, Coney Island
Warm - SMW, Chanel Allure Homme Sport
my wife loves it when i wear himalaya. I enjoy it, but its definitely not one of my favorites.
but my wife supports my cologne habit, so i cant really complain too much.
royal oud is definitely great juice.
I get a decent amount of complements with it, but usually all from men.
my wife only likes it after that 3-4 hour mark (on my skin) when it turns from a...
my wifes favorite from the millesime line is himalaya
but i get most complimented with VIW, SMW, and MI.
Never get any complements from GIT
with BdA, its like a 96% love for me. the way its blended and the way it performs for me is awesome. But there is just this one off putting note that I get, and other too, that make this at most...
smoky raspberry goodness - Tuscan Leather mmmmmmmm
i will beat you with my bottle of bleecker :tongue:
i agree, that it is most important do wear/buy what YOU prefer.
IF my tastes align with someone elses, GREAT
I really despise incense in a fragrance, but even I can appreciate how nice a job...
I don't enjoy going to a fancy restaurant, and paying for a $100-$300 bottle of wine, hoping that it "challenges" my taste buds.
I much rather enjoy a simple, and dare I say, more palatable wine...
at the end of the day, its all about what the owner and wearer enjoy.
Obviously there are thousands if not millions who really enjoy creed. Count me in as a lover of their frags. I enjoy the...
you will be fine. i bought a bottle of MI and SMW from fragrencenet, and even with all the other comments from people, still had my doubts. But when my MI and SMW showed up they were great. The MI...
i have to agree with you, and second Tabac Rouge. I freakin love tuscan leather, and its nuclear performance (for me), but TV is just too much. TV has such a limited usability for me, but Tabac Rouge...
i think I have around 30 frags now including decants that i really enjoy. But sometimes i stand in front of my collection (two shelves in my closet) and get frustrated because i cant decide what Id...
No one has mentioned Erolfa.
When I first tested Erolfa I was not impressed. However, Erolfa is a scent that, to me, has to be tested in warmer weather. Also, the sillage is what makes it so...
Andy warhol 100 ml blind buy
Overrated : noir de noir, andy Warhol, DHI (although I do enjoy DHI)
Underrated : I'll second l'homme sport, Coney Island, allure homme sport Eau extreme
Fahrenheit has always been cheaper
I wore 14d01 the night before last to a new years eve dinner at an upscale restaurant. Two half sprays on my neck was on my skin and projecting 19 hours later. I could smell it distinctly, as well as...
Creed father and son
I have l'homme, la nuit, and l'homme sport.
I actually enjoy the sport a whole lot surprisingly!
Tuscan leather is a masterpiece. I much prefer it to tobacco vanille
Tom Ford Tuscan Leather
Creed Royal Oud
Dior homme vintage
Chanel Bleu de Chanel
Bleecker street had a very nice blueberry note. Not sweet blueberry, but imagine you picked a fresh blueberry off the vine and mashed it in your hand, that is what I get from bleecker
Only designer I can't get rid of
I'm getting unsolicited compliments from people passing me or even just being near me 18 hours after applying my 14A01 and my 14D01. That's two sprays on my neck
I've had batches from 10,11,12...
For me it was GIT!
When I delved into niche I immediatly went to creeds. Got all the main players (aventus, SMW, GIT, VIW, MI, and OS). Got decants of them all. Enjoyed and loved most of them. But...
i just dont get the aventus reference. in the opening i definitly get pineapple and fruit.
However after a few hours Im left with a strikingly Mont Blanc Individuel scent. Like crazy close.
I would love to see a picture please!
14a01 and 14d01 are the bomb!
A very good offering from their house IMO. I own a few bond bottles and have to agree with some others who say that their juice comes off as somewhat synthetic. But it doesn't give me headaches, in...
After purchasing 4 different batches from 3 different years of aventus, I purchased two bottles of what I found to be the best juice for me. Figured with the inconsistency of that particular juice I...
I have had 3 different years of aventus batches before. IMO the 14 batches have been the best for fruit AND longevity.
I currently have a 14A01 (new sprayer) and a 14D01 (old sprayer). They smell...
Will be curious to see what the outcome is for you. I too love the smell of MI
Maybe confusing it with dior homme cologne. DHC is a pure lemon shot.
i can sorta see a slight comparison, but they are absolutely different frags. not similar at all in the dry down.
dhi has no nutty vibe at all.
BOTH for certain. DH for daylights and DHI for nighttime or cold weather. Absolutely worth owning both
uomo is such a great scent. and I agree with the above poster about an "intense" version being needed.
seems like that could be said for just about all the decent designer releases in the past few...
Man I'm glad the community here has experience with this. I feel a lot better haha!
Hello, just looking to see the general consensus in purchasing from a retailer in Australia and the time frame for shipping from there to the U.S.
In particular : City Perfumes
My wife found...
I'm still a fan of imsurrection pure. It's the best IMO of the copies.
But a bottle of 14a01 has effects on a man lol
But I do stick to it that ab spirit platinum is TDH EDT all the way!
get the real thing my friend.
i tried them all then i got my hands on a bottle of the real deal. there is NO comparison.
insurrection pure was my favorite out of the group though. i have a...
Man DO NOT blind buy this one.
I have/had all the amen flankers. All are/were worth the value in one way or another. EXCEPT this one. Many here will tell you how great it is. And maybe it is for...
I'm all for honesty, and if they want back then fine. But I'd be holding it until you know for certain your card won't be charged. If you sent it back this early then were happend to be charged what...
I must be in the minority, because this and DH last longer on me than I'd sometimes care for! Valentino especially lasts on clothing. So bad that I almost can't use any other frags until that article...
I love dior homme! And dior is an awesome frag for just about anytime of the year IMO. Valentino does have a slightly similar vibe, but is well worth owning on its own. Love the chocolate hazelnut...
Thanks for the reviews so far. I have a decant coming hopefully this week!
i think a few people on youtube aren't giving Dark a full wearing. At the first spray Dark is a very spicy and cherry "dr pepper" smell. But I'm 7+ hours in with dark and malt on separate arms, and...
Like my previous thread, I wanted to share my thoughts on this one and see what the community thinks.
Wore insurrection II Dark on one arm today alongside Pure Malt. Lots of similarities. Dark...
Yea I'd like to pay $11 for another bottle of this and pure right now!
Ok so it's been about 6 hours and the wild has become less of a projector, but so has the havane. They both smell the same to me on separate hands, but honestly the havane is a little bit stronger....
Received this frag in the mail this morning. Sprayed it on a cars and was immediately reminded of a longtime favorite of mine. So instead of just saying this smells like this other frag, I decided to...
I'm going to start a thread on insurrection wild. Just wanted to give you a heads up. I think you'll be happy to read it!!
bigbz - i have insurrection dark and insurrection wild on the way to my house now. i will let you know about those when they get here
bigsly - you and me both, i love buying these cheapies. i...
I enjoy silver a lot, but combine it with insurrection pure II and you've really got a winner!
