The site looks great. I was looking for a US distributor.
I might just end up taking a trip to Kohshi in SF and ask them. They specialize in Japanese, but they have to have some Tibetan. Loves me...
That is an inappropriate question!
Lol maybe where do you spray?
Bringing up a year-old post, but I was reading on olactoryrescueservice that a high-ent tibetan can be had easily at $25t.
Sadly, I can't give you specifics on where to try, mor just food for...
This happens to me. Notes I hate I keep finding in frags I love. Frags I love become meh, and frags I disliked become hmm.
Check out Black Orchid while you are there...
Dark, cool, dry.
Your taste will change before the juice goes bad.
I don't think having less juice is that detrimental. The bottle is mostly alcohol, which is a preservative.
I like Kouros and don't think it is aged...
Just wait, I bet he gets promoted before you!
What a grand discussion.
After age 8, your olfactory ability is in decline. Later in life is a sharper decline.
So there is the physical aspect.
Experience. Just like Sommeliers, the fraghead...
I live in Northern California and smell cologne on men all the time!
Granted, I greet people by shaking hands, bringing it in for a hug, then a quick sniff at the neck...
I have trouble appreciating aquatics in general.
That said, I don't consider BdC an aquatic.
I have heard so many people (non-fumeheads) talking about this to see it being the next AdG...
Deborah is you info compiled from Feminine-marketed scents only?
Both are safe designer frags. Amber or aquatic...
There are older theads on it. Search Tool.
Hermes has a lot of frags. TdH and Eau d'Orange Verte are talked about more for sure..
But wouldn't it just piss you off if your Rocabar became the...
My help with blind buys is... don't blind buy. Take your time, sample, save your money, get things you know you'll love.

This comes from experience. There are half a dozen...
^these are all deep
2 man (I don't detect a big citrus top. Its more "wearable" than the above.)
Carbone de Balmain
I will prolly get haters, but try Aventus....
OP I think you are hypersensitive to vanilla. I don't thinks it is built around vanilla or anything.
It is pretty cheap. Get it while you can (Zirh out of business.)
For the price I would have expected more Encre Noir recs
By your OP, this will work.
Monte Blanc Legend :happy:
"Welcome to hell, you are our 7 billionth customer! Which fragrance would you like to make your stay more pleasant?"
"Wow, really?! Green Irish Tweed, please."
"Here you go."
"This is Cool...
Ya I can see JV. I bought the coffrette collection.
Lot of D&G issues...
And yes, I stand by my 1828 statement
Lot of good ideas here.
Cordouroy, London, 2man...
Try Gucci Pour Homme II or Carbone de Balmain
Have the vintage and current formulation.
Love the dry down. Look forward to seeing a post after 8 hours.
Green Irish Tweed.
Not new, but available. Are you saying new because you don't want something others are wearing? -if you are, it is a lot rarer than designer frags.
Not $80 for a full bottle, but...
After sampling for awhile, I noticed a group forming in my samples stash..
Those frags I would buy if only they had greater longevity.
Are there any frags you passed up solely on longevity...
^ haha +1. Happy sampling!
Take it slow... you are about to change your tastes

+1 to check out Badgerandblade. Good place to discover more shavins.
Proraso green def has eucalyptus and menthol. I'm more of a Blue guy myself.
I don't think of Proraso as "exotic." It is...
Good review. I finally found some at a good price and picked it up.
I get better than 4 hours of projection, tho.
I spray one time on every part of my body I want a woman to be on.
Sometimes that is just one spray, sometimes...
Welcome. Have fun
I was accidentally shipped a sample of Dr. Harris Marlborough instead of MWF. I now prefer Doc Harris to TOBS.
Other preference alterations...
LEA after shave balsam feels and smells great.
I have only layered TV the day after because it is still on me. Burberry London the day after.
From your list I would consider Jubilation XXV, but it doesn't need anything else. Always a winner.
Since everyone thinks this thread is so barbaric, Invasion Barbare.
To all the naysayers of hanging.. Remember, hanging is the punishment with the least carbon footprint. Its cheap, made with...
Haven't found a better deodorant for annihilating odor.
*WARNING* Brut is only for real men. Boys will cry for two hours upon application.
But to stay on topic... Aventus? Lol
The scent most plagued by the notorious Creed batch variations.
There was one sample vial I loved. So I bought a split and hated it. Bought another sample and hated it.
*sigh* Not worth the...
Versace Dreamer is popular, but others will be wearing it.
GIT is always appropriate.
Rive Gauche is refreshing in the summer.
Since you work at a boba place test out Un Jardin en Mediterranee...
Lucyscent has been Basenotes Readers Favorite Online Boutique 2 years running.
Let them respond before tinkering.
If you decide to tinker, most atomizers are pinched around the glass. You might...
Anything by Black Phoenix Alchemy Labs
Names like: Embalming Fluid, Cup of Death, Haunted, and all manner of gothicness
Asking for it with this post...
It might help to describe what age group you are aiming at. And most girls will have much simpler tastes than the women of Basenotes
Green Irish Tweed. I sound like a fanboy whenever I talk about GIT, but it truly is damn versatile.
It always brings a smile to my face and never seems out of place no matter what.
Ross/ tj maxx/ marshalls always have for cheap. That cheap online?
^^ picked up some Zirh facial stuff. Maybe we will see Cordouroy(sp?) eventually
My mom has dropped two bottles. They definitely are not ergonomic.
As far as the smell... I have MI so don't need Love & Luck. But if I ever run out I know a good, better priced alternative
Green Irish Tweed
Un Jardin en Mediterranee
^+1. I sell the bottles I don't want on ebay. Not going to get what you paid, prolly, but its sumpin.
Now you know, no blind buys. I still haven't sold all of mine off yet...
Just received my bottle of GPHII in the mail today. Finally pulled the trigger when a reputable Amazon seller put it up.
There. Fixed it for you, lol.
Imho, men have hair. I shave my face, trim when/where appropriate, and get a few haircuts. I always wear a scoop undershirt that nobody ever sees. I will frequently...
Cedar-like smel that sits close to the skin. Probably overpriced considering there are cheaper and better alternatives
A. Tobacco Vanille
D. Bleu de Canel
or GIT for "all of the above."
That study just said the same thing three times, then the lesbians had to go and screw everything up...
Oh its there. Everybody else can smell it. Get your nose out of your wrist and you will be sniffing it all day.
Chanel Allure PH (tried Bleu?)
I don't feel the Egoiste love.. too soapy and reminds me of a bad experience
I like it, I wear it, and people have had nothing but positive things to say about it.
GIT is pretty hard to beat for versatility
Fragrantica has more female members
I never said Norne is Vetiver. I said the OP might like it..
Norne if you want coniferous, dark, and smoldering. Not really vetiver but you may like it.
I just layered Norne and Encre Noir. Try that s***
I see a few of the soapy classic-style.
Maybe something heavy like Norne by Slumberhouse, or Back to Black by By Killian.
Push a natural boundary with Un...
Not likely. You will be out shipping and an additional 25%. That is about $20 minimum on a bottle you don't like. The $10 (high-end) for sampling makes sense if you plan on building a collection. ...
Essenza lasts 8+ hours on me
Tom Ford's Private Blends are all worth taking a look at. It will probably take a couple wearings to decide your opinion on them. Complex, long lasting, and awesome.
A Method of Creation and Perfumery by Jean Carles is available online. According to the perfumersapprentice.com, his model is the foundation of modern perfumery. It is free online because it was...
Adding the crystal flacon and myperfumesamples
Lidge is the only one I can stomach
I have 3 compartments in a box: ones I use, ones that need more uses to figure out, and ones for reference.
There is a 4th spot, a box that I have to give away once I find someone who will use them.
Sadly, our senses decline over the years.
Our experience and training are always improving, however. At least until terminal drop-off...
Mine is pretty dark.
Thank you Flathorn for the read.
As far as feminine fragrances:
Love Spell will always remind me of my mother.
True Star reminds me of an ex that was a lot of fun; she is the only girl I dated...
I thot it was nice. Up my alley in general. Not very high on my buy list, tho.
I do enjoy my sample, tho.
Everything they put out is good. The offerings are different in the sense that they break fragrance rules, but if you are ignorant to those rules you wouldn't be able to tell the difference.
I think "dude" is timeless, lol.
Guy, bro, hombre, idk.
I voted for Love and Luck, btw
No blind buying for any Tom Fords. They don't always behave as you would expect. Complex and often beautiful, but try em!
Don't like patchouli and considering blind buying white patchouli?
I was thinking this when I read the thread title.
OP, no offense intended. You will change your mind every 5 years on what a man is...
S is for Sartorial by Penhaligons
BDC: Bi de Chanel
Pretty different. Both are heavy, dark woods frags.
Where is that wet dog chewing on bandaids? -I need a spritz!
My advice is not to rely on the popularity of a scent here on Basenotes. We are an odd crew with tastes that don't usually parallel the norm.
Test to make sure you like something first. Samples and...
A lot of great ideas for you here.
Considering the warm climate, and wanting to be different, might I suggest Un Jrdin En Mediterranee? It has a natural smell that sings in the sun. An earthy fig...
Dubious on the "real" part. Agree with if you like X, try Z comment.
Vetiver Extraordinaire by Malle
Mmmmmmmmmm.......... still no please.........
I would like to know as well.
Maple wood, raisin,sugar, a touch of ripe apple. That is my best crack.
I think that is the mango oil version.. I will have to put it on the list :)
Seafoam green bhospital-laundered scrubs, ugly flat Brooks standing shoes, and Polo Explorer cause it smells like the fragrance in isopropanol alcohol
I is for Italian Cypress by Tom Ford
Thread revive! Saw this in "similar thread" and thought I'd comment.
My wife has muscular legs and big calves. I love seeing her "American Thighs" and defined calves in Express skinnies, the jean...
Norne by Slumberhouse has some incense with cedar. Like other Slumberhouse offerings, it very much places you in a coniferous forest. It is drier in that it isn't sweet. It is fresh in the sense...
Lol. A fragrance collection is an attractive view...
I had to sell a bottle of my wife's perfume because it reminded me of an ex.
I suppose somebody could fake this fragrance, but it can be found so cheap that I don't think it would be worth it.
$35 for 4 oz. At tj maxx, ross, marshalls.
