Gosh... I wish I was a clever as many of the posters here. Funny stuff.
Wow! I wish I could "get" Fahrenheit the way so many others seem to. I just can't warm up the oil/grease note which is all I get.
But... I don't regret any of the frags that I've sold or...
But I respectfully disagree with you about DHI. To me it is quite femme, and does indeed smell like granny's handbag, but with some cocoa powder dumped in. I strongly suggest people...
Haven't tried the 212, but my 1 Million seems to be well-liked by women of various ages. But apparently in some places, like the UK and some other Euro countries, there are a lot of people wearing...
Blind bought Kiton Men after finding a very good deal on the net from a discount store. PM me if you want details. :2vrolijk_08:
OP.... isn't this a great answer to your question?? :rolleyesold:
As for me, I think Escada is out of the game. No big loss.
Very nice frag. I would say I get, in this order... citrus, woods, and maybe very light incense. I don't get the musk, which is a note I generally don't care for. Despite what he naysayers claim,...
In my years of experience, the vast majority of men do not wear cologne. In any given week, counting guys who may just put some on a single time while going out on Friday night or something, I would...
True. I love the scent, but am not convinced it is the longevity/projection/sillage monster that many claim. It's OK, but not great, and seems to vary from wearing to wearing.
This morning I put...
+3 Van Cleef & Arpels pour homme. Totally masculine, strong, but no sweetness whatsoever (in case that is important to you.)
I own and like the Bleu edt, and will sample the edp when it is available in my neck of the woods.
Hanae Mori HiM is excellent, dude. My wife loves this stuff. And it actually has decent longevity, which I rarely get with any frag.
After enjoying a 1 ml sample I had, I just recently swapped for a bottle of BK with a fellow here on BN.
My wife and I really like the scent. The longevity is not what I hoped for, but I am used to...
Very interesting, David. Thanks for this report.
Actually, the current version of VC&A PH is excellent in all respects.
Think I'll try this, brotato.
OK... send me some vintage and I will re-evaluate :beer:
I agree totally with the current Dreamer smelling like some old lady's nasty hairspray. Very good analogy.
Welcome to my world, bro. I have found many scents I like, but few that give me good longevity or projection. And like you, with some that seem to fade quickly, I have asked others around me if...
Maybe I shouldn't have voted as I've only tried the LADDM, but I thought it was a pretty unique and inoffensive frag.
Wouldn't mind owning some, but the cost scares me off a bit.
Gotta edit this... I had only put my favorites originally.
Favorites: Polo and LaNuit
Least favorites: DHI and The Dreamer.
Hanae Mori HM (edp)
VC&A PH is my absolute favorite scent. Some dark rose, has a luxury soap vibe, and very macho.
Did not care for ODLRPL at all.
LaNuit is a good choice, and by no means limited to the 30 and under crowd.
You might want to look into Carven Homme (discontinued but available for cheap by a guy on ebay).
The suggestions of...
Didn't like The Dreamer at all, and swapped it away pretty quickly.
Very interesting story, Swedish. I envy you being able to visit the Baltic countries, as I would like to.
I haven't gotten tired of 1 Million yet. I think it is the most "fun" frag I have. It...
Loved the scent. Raw masculinity. I had the latest version and tested it in cold, hot, and temperatures in-between. Consistent poor longevity.
A crying shame. I had to part with it.
This is my wife's favorite out of my wardrobe. She sampled it at Sephora, couldn't resist it, and got it for me.
Oh, and I like it too :thumbsup:
Hey... doesn't sound half bad. And if you are getting good longevity with it, that's a huge plus. I tend not to get decent longevity with too many frags. Now off to read the comments on this one. ...
Post #5484 in this thread, from earlier this year, has the top 60 tallied.
Here are your top 20:
1. Creed Aventus (78.3)
2. YSL La Nuit de L`Homme (32.5)
3. Bleu de Chanel (21.3)
Haven't tried too many niche frags, and in fact have been appalled by some of them.
But I think I could dig some LADDM if it was cheaper or money was no object.
Stop trying to tempt me...
I didn't get good longevity or projection with this one, or the very similar AdG. Forget Issey and get Hanae Mori HM, especially the edp version for a nice, sweet citrus with good longevity.
Hey, that was my SOTD yesterday too. Nice scent, and good staying power.
Welcome... and not a bad little collection so far. Don't underestimate 1 Million, though. I think it is one of the better sweet/gourmand type frags, not just for the scent but also the longevity.
Hi young lady. You will find some of the nicest people on the net right here. :smiley:
Greetings. Hope all is well in my home state.
Welcome... and hope you like the VC&A PH. It's still my #1. :smiley:
Current version of Cool Water and Joop Nightflight. Synthetic cleaning products.
A couple of times guys have asked what I'm wearing, and show interest in getting it. And that's great. But a compliment from a female, rare though they are, is a whole different...
I don't see that you caused any "chaos." You were just trying something different, and as always meant well. Don't worry. :wink:
The same female security guard where I work who liked my Aventus a few weeks ago.
This time I was talking at the front desk with another security guard as I was leaving for the day.
She walked by...
Good point. It is amazing what we are propagandized and forced to tolerate... things that are changing our entire country and culture for the worse. Yet people whine about trivial issues like...
I had been toying with the idea of trying GIT as my next Creed, after being pretty happy with my 50 ml Aventus decant. But after reading some of these posts, I don't think I'll chance it with GIT. ...
Really?? For a rodeo... in the middle of summer?
Bad longevity? Poor projection? Then I don't care how good the scent is. I'll pass.
I love Van Cleef & Arpels Pour Homme, but it is a classy, masculine powerhouse, and may not fly if you are a younger guy.
I got a few of these fragrance oils from a different outfit, on the recommendation of someone here on BN. I thought they were all pretty bad, and mostly not even close in scent to the real frags. ...
To me DHI is unisex at best, and feminine at worst. Gave it several chances, and just can't handle the strong cocoa powder note.
Really? All I see is dudes replying here. :confused:
Hope you love 'em. Blind buying is kinda fun, as long as you stick to cheaper frags. :coolold:
Me too, bro. I have found a lot of people here want to swap, but not buy. Even when the price is pretty good.
I am going to try again to unload several items soon, and if I have no buyers again, I...
Because that is his choice.
Interesting. Didn't know there were rules as to how and why people wear frags....
Indeed, shamu1 (Sean) has not added anything to his "pour monsieur" blog in quite a while, but all the old stuff (reviews, general commentary, etc) is still there for all to enjoy.
I very rarely smell frags on guys at all. But to all those here in the USA claiming to smell 1 Million a lot, I would like to know what parts of the country or types of venues this is occurring in. ...
For my fellow Americans and others who may not know, in the UK, "bog" is used as sort of a crude word for a toilet or bathroom. Gotta love them and their wacky slang.
Possibly Lonestar Memories (by Andy Tauer), though it does have some other notes.
Most women like it. That is all the versatility I need. :thumbsup:
I like Sung Homme a lot, and definitely get the Irish Spring soap vibe.
Strange how a couple of people here assumed the OP couldn't be talking about the original, purple juice SH.
Nice scent, good...
Love the LLaM scent, but the longevity is incredibly poor on me. About 1/2 hour, and my wife confirms this, so it's not just me.
Female security guard at the plant I work at.
Joop Nightflight :shocked: Sooo much like some cleaner we used to add to a bucket of water for mopping floors when I was in the military.
After several tries, due to good reviews claiming what a...
3rd Man by Caron. Had a 1 ml sample, but so beautiful and floral I'm afraid it seems too fem for me to own or wear.
Saying it's "not the best smelling frag" is an understatement. Projection/longevity on me wasn't even that great, despite some claims of its beastliness.
The Bogart house disappoints me greatly.
Wish I could contribute more here, Francolino. I have yet to make what I would call a great find :(
Have a tester of the one on the right. It has absolutely horrible longevity. The worst or maybe 2nd worst of any frag I've ever tried or owned.
But what a nice scent. Damn shame.
Love Quorum. Hate the poor longevity (on me).
Hahaha! I hear you, bro.
Great find, Francolino! :vrolijk_26:
Van Cleef & Arpels PH
That IS a great compliment, Chuck. Nice job :coolold:
Might have to look into GIT. I am a fan of Creed's Aventus.
Hanae Mori HiM
Please keep me and my lifestyle out of this discussion :lolk:
I'm pretty sure when I got here about 18-19 months ago, I was seeing TdH, DHI, LIDGE, and GIT mentioned more than I see them now. Discussion of Aventus (good frag in my opinion) is still pretty...
The current Azzaro PH has poor longevity. Don't bother. Polo green is better in both scent and longevity.
Mostly edt, but have Aventus and Hanae Mori HM edp.
Yeah, the person who made this listing has no class whatsoever. His or her overuse of the "f" word is quite obnoxious.
Yes....twice in the past few years. Both times it was co-workers. Once the answer was Cool Water, the next time it was Polo green.
Two times I have also had male co-workers ask me what I was...
What a great son. But don't scare me like that, Chuck. My mind overreacted and I thought you might be alluding to a bad health condition in your family, or something. Glad it's nothing like that! ...
Don't know about Tommy, but I don't care for any of the Bvlgaris, based on poor longevity.
Don't know how this one flies under the radar so much but Hanae Mori HiM is the epitome of woody/spicy, in my experience.
Not tried the Creed S&W.
You misread and misunderstood the post by magnus611. His "TMI" comment was in jest, and his post was definitely not smart ass. Read it again carefully, and think before going into defensive mode.
Nothing wrong with Brut at all. Simple, classic, effective, and manly.
I found this interesting.
Plain and simple, Bleu is a nice scent to the majority of people. I like the stuff, but I realize I'm not the most sophisticated guy in the world.
I don't "get" most of the niche frags, quite...
Gosh.... what's not to like about a great floral like 3rd Man ??? Couldn't stop applying the stuff to my wrist and smelling it when I had a 1 ml sample.
Last full bottle disappointment was Joop Nightflight. Other than that, I've only gotten a few 1 ml samples (like Bvlgari Aqva, Encre Noire, and AdG Essenza) that just didn't excite me.
The delightful Sung Homme :thumbsup:
I agree with this....
I have the original 1 Million, as well as Joop Wild. Wife and I like both of 'em.
Current juice is not that much of a bomb. At least that was my experience. Once it settles down for a bit, I didn't think it was terribly powerful.
A shot to each side of neck, and one to chest (on shirt, sweater, or whatever). Same as many frags.
If you find the longevity isn't good, or you ask people and they can't smell it on you after a...
