Bottle it up, slap a "Fahrenheit Intense" label on it, and start selling!! I'd sign up for a big bottle of that. ;-)
Awesome! Where is "here", by the way?
I just went to a specialty spice store the other day and among all sorts of interesting things, they had frankincense and myrrh in raw form - can be used as...
I've been wearing Blackbird on and off for the past couple of weeks and I'm still super impressed. The beauty is in the eye of the beholder, of course, but I find it extremely complex, rich, very...
Old thread revival... love it. ;-)
As the OP, I should add that I did a complete 180 on Tam Dao - EDP at least. I posted another thread about it. I was sniffing my arm up close and when you do...
Atelier Cologne - Gold Leather
If you only have a bottle or three, probably a year or two. If you have a few dozen or a few hundred bottles - you'll likely never make a dent in a 3.4oz bottle.
I always thought Hermes Equipage has that "old money" sort of vibe... as if you never had to work for the money you have. It's my SOTD :-)
Or a 180, as it may be... :-)
Enjoy! TdH is a true modern masterpiece, I bet (or hope) Hermes will keep it around for many decades to come, right next to Bel Ami, Equipage, Eau d'Hermes, etc.
OK, tried Vetiver Veritas on skin today. The opening is quite arresting, unlike most Heeley releases which tend to be nice and pleasant. This one - is dark, menthol-y, sort of like wintergreen mint...
Oh my... Is your middle name "Dexter" by chance? :shocked:
PalmBeach has a split of this one already running, there's one spot left.... with your name on it. ;-)
(otherwise I'd run it, lol)
With Stuigi's permission, I'll be adding it in the next few minutes. ;-)
UPDATE: It looks like there is a 200ml size bottle that qualifies for the split. I posted that one moments ago....
Yup, same exact experience here - I love it and find it very similar to Bigarade Concentree, at a fraction of the cost. I got a backup bottle in a swap couple of weeks ago, before fragnet got it in...
Sure. Consider it done - just posted it.
Rob - I've been out all day yesterday, but am responding to PMs now to catch up. I did get your PM - will be responding in the next couple of minutes. Everything is still on track, no worries.
Interesting. Of all the ouds I've tried, this one is not skanky at all to my nose. It's the opposite, more in line with Tom Ford Oud Wood (sweet and clean) vs something like Dior Leather Oud (super...
P is for Psychedelique by Jovoy Paris
The House of Matriarch Blackbird wowed me recently... I know, I know, I've been slow on this one - I practically ignored it when it first hit the BN circles, expecting it to be yet another thing...
K is for Kouros by YSL
D is for Duro by Nasomatto
Only two I like:
Not a big fan of lavender - I can only tolerate it in very small doses... but last night I sprayed my sheets with Cologne Pour Le Soir and it was wonderful. It's normally a little heavy on the...
Thank you - I do get them all and I do respond to all, no worries.
I just got a decant from a split, arrived today. Have not sprayed it on yet, will try it tomorrow. Just sniffing it from the bottle, though - not impressed. But I guess it deserves at least one...
And the split just closed tonight. Thank you baaghji! :-)
It's nice for Creed to offer the 1oz version, but, ugh, price-wise it's... a little crazy. $235? (and possibly add sales tax) Yikes. ...
The list got very long. The more bottles I buy, the more I seem to be adding to the TO TEST list... it doesn't seem to be shrinking fast enough.
I've only tried L'Homme de Coeur from Divine, so far (and love it). Adding L'Homme Sage to my TO TEST list. Thanks guys for your reviews.
LOL. Well, I'm glad I have a nearly full bottle and another one still sealed, both 100ml, from 2012. I'm guessing these are before the 2013/2014 reformulations.
I use small refillable atomizers when traveling... No need to bring big bottles along, and if anything goes missing - no big whoop.
These are great, I have a stack of them in different colors:...
I get this same effect from just two sprays. I've been told that perhaps one spray is more than enough. It really is... EPIC....
Say what?? These are completely different and not similar at all. It's like comparing apples to baby strollers. Both great, sure, but not similar whatsoever.

Chanel Égoïste Cologne Concentrée sure would meet the pricing rules, since it's now as extinct as a rainbow unicorn and 100ml bottles go for far, far more than $200 (the min price per BN rules). ...
Pure Havane. For some reason it just works, even though in general I despise loud, synthetic fragrances like this one.
Pure Havane is my little guilty pleasure. I generally dislike loud, mostly synthetic scents, yet this one pushes the right buttons and I enjoy wearing every now and then.
I've tried to explain to someone in another thread... Basically take Oud Wood and add a healthy dose of cinnamon, white sugar, and hot pimento pepper to the mix. It's quite a bit more spicy/hot,...
It's nice, but I didn't care for it when I tried it. It was released at the same time as Tobacco Oud, and that one I do love - I bought a big bottle after just one quick sniff, I knew it was "meant...
Cazzio bailed out on two splits after they closed and payment requests were sent (Masque Milano Tango and Profumum Roma Acqua Viva). Will not respond to any messages.
Well that was fast... Just added bottle #2 for Bruno Fazzolari Lampback.
And like magic - it's there... http://www.basenotes.net/threads/380646
PM me with your split commitments, please.
Definitely M7 (vintage) - has cherry cough syrup in the opening. I don't get cherry in K10 though...
Shipping is from UAE so... about three weeks. But it's worth it.
Ameer Al Oudh is a close cousin of Oud Wood, but it's louder, more spicy (cinnamon/sugar), and lasts pretty much all day. And for $30 (including shipping from UAE) you can't beat it.
Although - I...
Awesome, glad to hear it!
I'm very impressed with Blackbird myself. Very complex, rich, satisfying... Love it!

Bruno Fazzolari Lampback
OK, so everyone knows that UK has some crazy new regulations when it comes to shipping fragrances to or from that country. And it's a shame, because they are one of the few places in the world where...
Bump. Added Jubilation XXV, lowered all other prices.
Xerjoff XJ 17/17 - Stone Label - Richwood

Yup. It's a bad week if Montale doesn't release AT LEAST one new oud/rose something or other. Typically two a week. I can't keep up anymore. I got a sample of Nepal Aoud that was JUST released,...
Try Lalique White. $30 for 120ml bottle. Awesome fragrance, inoffensive, masculine, pleasant all the way around.
It's not stellar in terms of longevity - I definitely do not get "9-10 hours" like some other people - more like 3-4 hours. BUT... it is so cheap that it doesn't matter - just keep spraying it...
It's an Amouage day, I see... ;-)
Here you go, just added: http://www.basenotes.net/threads/380646
KBF1972 just PM'd me yesterday that the samples have been mailed.... Aug.2... So I should be getting them this coming week. It's been a looooooong wait. :lipsrsealed:

Call the Dior boutique in Las Vegas, they sell it here in the US.
Good news, BN friends and family members!!
I was able to find a different source for LM Parfums Hard Leather, with a price tag about $50 lower than having it shipped from EU. The new source has...
Yup, less than 12 hours. I added second bottle just now in case others who were interested missed the opportunity.
Just got an email from LuckyScent - Heeley Vetiver Veritas is out, ready to be shipped Aug.4. And it looks like they changed the packaging a bit - this looks better than the preview photos.
Just got a sample of this one the other day - very nice! May have to get some of this (highly recommended for all vetiver lovers)
+100!!! Love this one. For an Eau Fraiche, it feels...
House of Matriarch - Blackbird
LM Parfums - Hard Leather
Bois d'Argent - sorry, not expensive enough to qualify under BN rules.
Bergamote 22 - PalmBeach was running a split recently, perhaps he may run a second bottle?

Sel Marin does it for me.
Acqua di Gio Essenza is a close second, though this one is less salty/marine, more woodsy, but it has that same seaside summery vibe.
megatropolis - you bumped this thread on the 27th, but you are not responding to any PMs sent your way. Are you still selling these items? Please check your inbox.
Creed Spice and Wood has similar vibe, without the pineapple though.
+1. Love HiM, but hate the older HM.
Tumulte!! My favorite little gem!!
U is for Ungaro Man by Emanuel Ungaro.
Please all see the Basenote rules - http://www.basenotes.net/threads/283242#post2270162
30 ml. bottle must cost $90 | £56 or more, minimum split is 5 ml.
50 ml. bottle must...
You won't find vintage Bel Ami at a Hermes boutique - it's been re formulated and replaced with the new version many years ago. At this point your only hope to find a vintage bottle would be eBay,...
I've heard that too - not sure if it's true or not.
The crazy thing is - I'm willing to pay even exorbitant international shipping, but even then none of the companies I've contacted in Europe are...
I think I'm next on the list. I'm PM'ing my mailing address to the person ahead of me now.
I've sampled a few Slumberhouse releases so far (couldn't wait 8 months, lol, ordered samples of the...
Unfortunately none of these qualify for a split under the BN rules. :-(

PM me your mailing address and I'll look up the shipping cost for you. If you are willing to pay international rates and understand the potential risks/costs involved with customs and duties in your...
Sure, would love to hear your comments - especially if you are familiar with Wonderwood, so you can hopefully say how similar this new one is.
:-( Too bad. I'd love a bottle, but do not have European vacation planned in my near term future...
+1 on Fico di Amalfi, my favorite from the Blu line.
I saw it last night!! I'm like one click away from ordering it, sight unseen. Anyone convince me otherwise? Or anyone convince me to push the SUBMIT button to complete the order? ;-)

I'm afraid I have to add negative comment to this thread. A few months ago I purchased an item from starshipvelcro, sent payment, then haven't heard from him for I think 2-3 weeks despite numerous...
Well, don't take my word for it... according to both Basenotes and Fragrantica reviews, most people do get strong leather from it. Perhaps I need to revisit it, but last couple times I wore it, I...
I got a bottle of it and love it, but you really have to go to town and waaaaay overspray it to get enough strength and longevity out of it. If you overspray it (10+ sprays) it seems to work well...
If you like Puredistance M, Bois Du Portugal, and Fetish Pour Homme - you'll also like Moschino Pour Homme! It's rich and aromatic, sort of similar to Hermes Bel Ami (a little) but with less leather...
Egoiste, for sure. Excellent longevity as well.
And as rynegne mentioned, Tam Dao EDP, if your local Nordstrom carries the line.
A few good incense suggestions already came up for that church vibe, but if you still want some vampire vibe instead... I think all releases from Blood Concept should fill this void nicely. Or...
If you can hold off a few days, I can send you a sample of Santal Majuscule along with your Cuir Ottoman split.
I have not tried JdP, but I got a 5ml sample of Santal Majuscule and I'm glad I didn't blind buy a full bottle (and I was thiiiiiiiis close!). It's not that it's bad, it is actually quite lovely...
Bump. Chopped prices, added new items, removed sold items.
If you see something you like - PM me and let's work out a deal.
I know it's an old thread, but I recently got a nice 5ml sample of Versilia Vintage Boise and I *love it!*. Yes, it's not inexpensive, but it's not priced terribly either (and if you want...
Identical you say? Well look no further than Lalique Encre Noire for Men, of course. At ~$25 for 100ml bottle, it's practically as cheap as they get. Anything 'similar' (like the already mentioned...
I've been testing Intense Cafe lately and there's something about it that I find very arresting - while completely avoiding Montale's sea of aoud releases. Very rich coffee and rose scent, strange...
I don't like the pricing games Fragrancenet plays. They seem to be monitoring BN forums and if something has an uptick in popularity, shows up on the "today I bought" forum, they bump up the prices...
+1000. Not even close!

You got it!
Someone asked me about Masque Milano Terralba in a PM. Since this is a split thread, not review, how about a link to a great review by Alfarom instead: ...
That is exactly it - you can make it out on BluRay just fine, in the scene where Bond opens up her purse, pulls out the shell, and the bottle lies flat with the label up, easily readable. ;-)
There are couple giveaway threads here on BN where you may also want to post those unwanted fragrances. Someone else might be interested in giving them a try. Both samples and partial bottles are...

My first thought was: WOW, COOL!!
My second thought, reading about it: damn, Drakkar was released in 1972?? I thought it was more like early 80's. Then I realized they were talking about the...
