In before the chaos starts
And to answer OP's question, I have not tried any of their work
Haven't read a single reply but I am guessing that GIT makes numerous appearances?
Edit - have now read all the replies and find it has become a kind of different thread to what I thought!
Tried the 50% concentration and it wasn't a particularly good performer but I would have thought it would sit closer to the skin at this sort of concentration
Don't particularly remember any...
Interesting read - Patchouli is fast becoming my favourite note and having tried a number of scents mentioned by OP, I largely agree with what has been said
Only thing that I am not quite in line...
I am going with a house rather than a specific scent
I enjoy many from the house but genuinely believe the compositions are conceived, made and bottled at a rate that is close to the...
It is really good and worth owning in my opinion
Never with perfume but once got chilli on the little fella after failing to wash my hands after chopping some up
"Men tend to exhibit strong brand loyalty when it comes to cologne"
I am currently loyal to around 137 houses
I have used them before and found them to be very efficient. From memory, the package was very neat and I think that they included some free samples.
It was a while ago that I used them but I only...
Adding a couple that I don't think have been mentioned
Revillon Pour Homme Haute Concentration
You can buy it from the MFK site and Liberty also have it as available
Did they have all of the items you ordered in stock at the time of the order?
The only delays that I have had with them is when they had to wait for an item to come into stock
Just received my sample of this and wanted desperately to not like it (the wallet needs a rest)
Unfortunately, on paper, it smells great.
It immediately reminded me of something and having read...
My credit card company
Best - MFK
Worst - Bond No 9
I like both but would go for Reflection
Sartorial has an old school vibe going on so if that floats your boat go with that - I don't think you would be disappointed with either
My bottle seems fine
It was on my 'to buy' list - just found out that I was fortunate enough to earn a bonus I wasn't expecting so trigger pulled
Emir from M. Micallef or L'Animale Sauvage from Marlou
Like others have mentioned, they kind of reminded me of my teenage years
Possibly the single best ever use of the search facility
Pros and Cons for a signature scent:
Pro - wallet would be in a far healthier state
Con - I would be bored senseless
I have all of them in 8mlspray vials which came in a really nice leather binder- they are not easy to get on with and are a bit of a challenge. Coeur de Noir is my favourite with Vi et Armis becoming...
Fortunate to own this along with the Haute Concentration version which I think is even better
www.allbeauty.com are still selling the 75ml bottles if anyone in the UK needed to pick up a bottle
Cant believe you haven't suggested Gengis Khan - has a huge clove note to my nose
Keen on the FV from Creed if others are interested?
Nearly all the time
Combination of not having much choice where I live, cost of sampling being surprisingly expensive and a raging compulsive personality lead to pretty much non stop blind buying
I never take the word 'best' too literally - generally it is a word used to get a thread going so I have no real issue with it.
I would rather see 'best' than 'your own subjective view on the...
Also, Le Labo are doing a 15 x 1.5ml sample set that also includes a 50ml bottle of your choice
MDCI do a great sample set - you get to pick which ones you want and then the cost of the sample set is knocked off the cost of a full bottle. You also get 5 x 12ml which is a decent amount in my...
Probably my favourite house at the moment with hardly any misses for me
One that I really like but I don't think has been mentioned is Cashmere Oud
Egoiste and Oud Wood
Safari by Ralph Lauren
I am a huge oversprayer (normally 10+) but this one can last all day with 2 or 3
Very nice scent, average performance (for me), way too expensive
Little chance of finishing anything, possibly the odd sample
Right, todays answer is:
Bel Ami (vintage)
Givenchy Gentleman (vintage)
Will never buy anything from Bond No 9
There is no right answer here but what I can say is that I received a compliment about LM Parfums Black Oud today
I honestly do not know
At best, haphazard
Nothing other than samples
I have started trying to buy the smallest bottles available (usually 30ml) - cant finish them either
My wife made me scrub off Tribute Attar the other day - I was gutted
We are now divorcing
Its a room-filler for sure and it lasts all day for me
According to the SOTD feature, 233 different scents - not going to list them all but Oud Cashmere Mood was the most worn with 12
I am surprised by the 2016 winner for me:
Oud Cashmere Mood (MFK) x 12
Patchovly (Profumum Roma) x 11
Givenchy Gentleman (vintage) x 11
An additional 230 others worn throughout the year
Lampblack for me
I have a couple of vintage bottles but haven't actually tried the current one - will be interested to hear peoples thoughts on the two
(as ever, could be a different three this time next week)
Unsurprisingly, similar offers on Montale are being shown on the same site
The Beaufort collection in a nice leather wallet and the Le Labo 15 x 1.5ml sample set
Lasts for ages, smells nothing like the original
A couple of female friends have commented in the past as to how much they like this one
I bought some candles from FiF for my wife and just before checking out I added a bottle of Lavande 44 for myself
My favourite for the year is El from Arquiste
Close second is Opus X from Amouage
Not bored as such but certainly struggling to get excited about new purchases
Still enjoy picking SOTD and SOTE
I am quite partial to Lampblack
All of the ones I own last for ages, in particular The Aoud and Roses Vanille
Dark Aoud is my favourite by some distance
Honourable mention for Honey Aoud, Black Aoud, Aoud Lime and Aoud & Pine
Dark Aoud for me
Ok, a couple more than a couple!
Jazaab - a work colleague said it reminded him of cow shit, I rather enjoy it
Like others, there are one or two mentioned above that I don't get the...
Creepy for me
Is it wrong that I am disappointed for getting a couple wrong?
Cashmere for me followed by Oud but I am sure you will like Satin as I think that they are all pretty good
Tough for me to answer as over 90% of what I own was bought blind so, in terms of risk (cost) and reward I would say Puredistance M
Patchouli 24 is included in the 15 x 1.5ml option
I have already put my order in but what I thought was strange was that they wouldn't ship the 50ml bottle that I wanted with the samples. They have said that I have to receive the samples...
VI for me, I am a big fan of crude synthetic shite
Spooky, came to say these two (wearing Salvador Dali tonight)
Out of interest, do you find any similarity between LB Black Oud and Black Afgano? Each reminds me of the other when I wear them
Oud Palao for me and love Eau Duelle when my wife wears it
With a pretty strong Black Friday offer being run this weekend I am planning on buying
The problem is that sampling is not possible so it is going to be a (not for the first time) blind buy
Not an easy choice and likely to change daily but for now, let's go with MFK
Prefer Black - Red is too sweet for me
Yea, could have easily mixed up the American rappers/producers - wouldn't be my specialist subject on Mastermind
Edit - looks like Diddy is a recently banned member
At a guess, it refers to the recent 'Sectioning' of Kanye West
Possibly due to the stress of being a millionaire egomaniac but I am not 100% certain that this is the case
And in answer to the...
Parfum for me
Lucky to have three vintage bottles and would have it in my personal top 10
This - never had any issues with shipping
Mainly myself but I only wear things my wife doesn't like if she is working nights, no need to subject her to things she doesn't like - I am looking at you Leather Oud!
I think that ACdA is misunderstood (originally by myself also) - it really has a challenging opening but within 10 minutes it changes into a pretty tame kind of thing. Leather Oud on the other hand...
As this thread is old(ish), I can confirm that I still have a soft spot for Arso but Patchovly is fast becoming a favourite of mine
If you literally can not pick one over the others, go for the cheapest
Own quite a few on your list and I like them all
One that is not on your list but is worth a look is Oud Paloa from Diptyque
I started working it out, got to a figure that frightened me (circa £10k) and stopped counting
I honestly do not want to know what the actual figure is
Who are you TS? My wife?
Went with the vintage Salvador Dali last night and I kind of get what people say about it.
Straight off the bat, my wife absolutely hated it (along with my 8 year old who said my bedroom stank). I...
I dug out my Montecristo sample the other day and thoroughly enjoyed it. Longevity was pretty average on me
I got a great deal on the Jovoy and I am wearing it today. I don't find it all that challenging but that isn't to say that I don't like it.
It seems to be a big boozy blast of leather followed by...
I was dealing with someone called Frank (the card in the parcel was signed by him) - the email address was the one I picked up from their website so I am guessing it is the French office. I...
Just thought that I would give an update on my Mancera issue
After 9 emails I finally had a reply although it was not what I was looking for. In answer to my question regarding a replacement...
Like it, bought it, realised it was not blowing me away, sold it
Thanks again everyone for the suggestions
I have just managed to pick up a bottle of vintage Salvador Dali for a pretty cheap price as that one stood out as something that I may enjoy.
