I also swapped about a month ago and have not received any word or a package. Any update would be appreciated.
I've only tried 5 of the private blends and a few of the "designer line", but my favorite was just Tom Ford for Men.
My order of scent as well as performance.
I have for sale the following, pics upon request:
1) Guerlain Tonka Imperiale, about 11ml left, comes with full display $55
2) Thierry Mugler Angel Men, 50ml bottle, 75% left $35
Dior and Chanels are both great.
I wore La Nuit last year. Dior Homme would also be a great choice. I'd go for a more sensual than fresh scent which is why I wouldn't do BdC or Sauvage despite liking them.
2. Herod & Pure Havane (Tie)
3. Jubilation XXV & Reflection Man (Tie)
Never tried B2B, but Herod destroys TV in my book.
Designer: Pure Havane
Reflection Man... HOLY CRAP THIS IS AMAZING! I could actually see this ousting Aventus as my "signature scent" if I have one. This portrays the exact image which I'd like to send. Perhaps Reflection...
Completely agree. OP, While I will say that Aventus is the most universally pleasing fragrance on this list, your scent should be chosen to portray the image you desire to send, not the one that you...
Seeing Naylor do a mega split of Italian Cypress got me thinking; if anyone was to do a mega one of Tuscan Leather with similar pricing I would certainly jump in on it.
Blind bought: Mont Blanc Individuel, Aventus, MI, Tobacco Vanille, and Parfums de Marly Herod. The only one I regret was Tobacco Vanille. However, that was over a year ago and I would like to get my...
For the average lady, I'd go Aventus. But since she has a taste in fragrance, I would actually ask which she prefers.
Trying Sauvage today for the first time, could definitely see myself getting a full bottle of this.
As a 17 year old I'll tell you that Aventus is my most complimented, but to parties I tend to wear YSL La Nuit De LHomme and many people tell me how good I smell. It's also much cheaper than Aventus.
Have some decants I have up for trade:
30ml Creed Virgin Island Water
7ml Tom Ford Italian Cypress (TRADED)
20ml Thierry Mugler Pure Malt
5ml Creed Original Santal
15ml Bond No.9 Bleeker...
My Top Ten Designer in no particular order
Dior Homme Eau
YSL La Nuit De Lhomme
Gucci Made To Measure
Mont Blanc Individuel
Oooh can't wait to sample it. Love Pure Malt and Havane.
Allure Homme Edition Blanche
Aventus (even though I wear this in the cold someone frequently)
Just got a decant of Original Santal today and sprayed Individuel on one arm with OS on the other. While they are very similar, I actually preferred Individuel, it's seems a little fresher and more...
Formal: Jubilation XXV
Once broke a Jubilation XXV sample... Yeah that was a rough day lol
At least get a decant for sure. It's lovely.
Only one I've smelled yet is Jubilation XXV. I have a decant of Reflection man that should get here in a couple of days. However, I voted Jubilation based on scent because its probably in the my top...
Intense and Sport
Was gonna go Pure Malt, but ended with Pure Havane. Discovering that it's my favorite Mugler.
This is probably in my top 10 posts I've ever read here lol.
Surprised that nobody has said 0 yet... But I'd go 2-3
I can't stand MI. It was an absolute scrubber... please don't hurt me :)
IMO there are way better options for a college student than those. But of that list, I'd go TdH
Pure Malt or La Nuit De L'homme
I can attest to Aventus being far and away my most complimented fragrance, especially at school. I've been here for years and have no Creed affiliation; in fact I will say that MI is IMO the most...
*Edit* didn't realize that this thread was in the Ladie's section.
Big Decant Day:
10ml Montale Intense Café
10ml Paco Rabbane 1 Million Absolutely Gold Pure Parfum
30ml Victor & Rolf Spicebomb
20ml Chanel Allure Homme Editión Blanche
10ml Amouage Reflection...
I'm 17 and my far and away most complimented fragrance is Aventus. A 100ml decant won't set you back a ton more than any of the ones you listed. Of those listed, I own La Nuit and Fierce. La Nuit...
FragranceBros (the ones with Jer, who left the channel)
In the words of Warren Buffet, "I'd rather get a good company at a fair price than a poor company at a great price." ... so no I wouldn't.
Tobacco Vanille is the only one I've smelt, but it was certainly no skin scent.
Currently bartering for a 20ml decant. If I go through it quickly, it will be full-bottle worthy.
Hi, I have a 4.0oz bottle of MI which is 50% full which I am looking to trade. Comes with cap, but no box.
Here's what I'm mainly interested in, but offer whatever you have and the worst I can...
Just sprayed on Jubilation XXV... WOW. It's not as unwearable as I thought it would be. Might possibly get in on a split or find a decant.
Amouage Jubilation XXV. Am I crazy for thinking that I could wear this in college (probably fall and winter nights) every now and then? It doesn't seem as unwearable as I've heard.
Basketball with some friends early on Boxing Day: A&F Fierce
Just got this today as a gift and after shaving with it tonight, I am very impressed. I really only have ever used schick hydro and this is an improvement on the contours of my face.
Penhaligon's Endymion. Absolutely gorgeous scent but performance issues has kept me from buying a bottle.
I see you're in Arizona (2nd highest), so yours is actually higher than mine so I guess I can't complain with New York's (7th highest), but there is a difference, albeit it doesn't start making much...
Was given the receipt, so I'll be able to return this for a little less than $100 ($89 plus the inflated NY taxes). Gonna take that cash to either fragrancenet or our own marketplace.
It was a gift from my grandparents. I actually had asked for Dior Homme, but I'm guessing Macy's didn't carry it and this was the closest thing. They actually had a receipt for it, so I could...
I actually noticed that Macy's carries Pure Coffee, which I've never smelled. Perhaps that could do it.
For those saying to ditch it, what would you recommend, keeping in mind that the alternative must be available at Macy's
I'll go with the suggestions and keep it then. 2 hours later and it's already growing on me. Perhaps it just takes more than 2 sprays...
I was recently gifted a bottle of Dior Homme Eau for Man. The smell is pleasant but nothing astonishing and it seems like it sits pretty close to the skin. The Macy's return label is still on it,...
A*Men. I was gonna do Pure Malt, but there's an open bar where we're at and I'm under age, so I don't want anybody to get any ideas... even if they are true.
Decided on Pure Malt for tomorrow. I don't wear it very much, so it will be a special scent for the day.
Aventus by far this year, distantly followed by Polo Black and (I actually really don't like this scent, but it's fine for a cheaply post-gym scent) Azzaro Chrome. I bought a bottle of MI recently...
For those who have thought this far ahead, what are you planning on wearing this Christmas? I'm debating between Pure Malt or trying a sample of Jubilation XXV. How about you?
It's called price segmentation and many companies do it, airliners being the chief culprit. It's business, and if someone is willing to pay $XX for it, then what should stop the company from selling...
Whatever I'm feeling like as long as it fits the situation. My "signature scent", if I have one, would be Aventus.
Looking at the note breakdown, I would probably wear Texas Mountain Water if it was an actual thing.
I voted for Pure Malt. I feel more BA wearing it than any of the others. It's a great boozy, caramel and fruity concoction that just inspires confidence. Pure Havane - which I am currently wearing -...
I don''t really see the purpose because most places with testers give away samples anyways...
Bottle of MI
25 cent Polo imitation spray from the gas station bathroom.
Dior Homme, never got around to getting a bottle despite really liking it. Figured I'd ask for that for Christmas.
Just bought a partial bottle of MI from the marketplace and the seller kindly said he would throw in some Amouage samples. I'll report back with my findings when I get them.
Out of those two, I'd go Nuit.
Ok, I go o a fairly "preppy" college, so dressing fairly nicely is the norm and I have a fair number of friends who also use Creed fragrances. However, I wasn't sure if Amouage would be "crossing the...
I've recently been moving my tastes into the more niche realm when I am able to afford them. However, as a college student there are many fragrances which I feel would not be the most appropriate in...
Aventus is the new king of my compliment game. Wore it two days in a row and got more compliments than I usually get in a month. Best looking girl at work today was particularly into it :)
Aeropostale Benton when I was in 7th grade. I don't have the bottle anymore and probably wouldn't wear it even if I did, but that was the first scent I really loved.
I really hate to be THAT guy that brings up this fragrance, but I got my 100ml decant of Aventus yesterday for the first time to try out and wore two sprays to my classes today. I have never had so...
I don't get a burnt caramel from it personally. Perhaps it's the tar note?
I have seen this as well. I believe it was by a brand called Classic Match.
Today's purchases, the first in a while:
1) 100ml decant of Aventus from the Splits Board - figured it was about time I get some of this stuff.
2) Bottle of Pure Havane. I already have Malt, so I...
I'm 16 and Polo black gets lots of compliments year round for me
Eros or 1million
Guerlain Spiriteuous Double Vanille (Boozy Vanilla)
Creed Millisime Imperial (Lemony)
Guerlain Tonka Imperiale (Almond Cookie)
Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille (Tobacco Leaf and Vanilla)
Guerlain SDV is awesome. Out of the ones that you mentioned I go with NP.
I tell them. If they end up getting it, it just lets me enjoy the scent more often
Pure Malts the only one I've really smelled
So far, my only 10's are Pure Malt and Polo Black, but neither of them are "holy grails".
Chrome is the only thing I've smelled from Azzaro, but I love it.
Aventus, and it took me about 2 wearings to go from love to hat to love again.
It's not that bad in all reality. But I most certainly don't own a bottle.
Got Polo Black on clearance for $15, and now it's one of my all-time favorites. Top-3 compliment getter as well (I have a rather small collection though).
DG Light Blue Pour Homme, very unoffensive.
So, I didn't see the thread when I searched, but it might already exist, but I want to know what that one mainstream fragrance that gets a lot of hate or just bland reviews is that you actually love....
Never smelled 360 red, so I'll do this comparison thinking of it as Aqua Di Gio which it is often considered the same as. SO, I vote Azzaro Chrome because Aqua Di Gio doesn't smell original (not that...
I think we all knew who would take this one :)
