  2. Etro - Vetiver and which other fragrance?

    Hey Basenoters!

    I (male, 22yo) want to add some Etro flavour to my wardrobe, and since Etro advocates combining their scents, I figured, why not get two (Yes, I totally succumbed to their clever...

    Re: A "bois de cedre" fragrance

    Ok, I tried Les Baux by L'Occtiane and found it to be more of cypress than cedarwood scent.
    I also tried Armani He and thought it was too aquatic.
    So now I also sampled Bois 1920 Extreme and Bois...

  6. Re: Warm and 'sexy' extension to my wardrobe

    Alright, like I said, it doesnt have to be warm.... I tried out Jaipur Homme and Habit Rouge today. I disliked Habit Rouge, the spicyness feels horrible I am afraid. I am on the fence about Jaipur...
  7. Re: Warm and 'sexy' extension to my wardrobe

    True, Egoiste is nice enough, but then again I am not sure if it isn't a bit too similar to L'Homme de Coeur. Does anyone here know both fragrances and could comment? Also, I wonder if Gucci Pour...
  8. Re: Warm and 'sexy' extension to my wardrobe

    Ok, nevermind 'warm'. Sexy, young and not congruent with L'Homme de Coeur is enough :)

  11. Re: Wardrobe needs love, would appreciate some advice

    Alright, but how does that compare to the other fragrances on my 'sexy' list? Which of those are also 'iris' fragrances?
    Thanks for being so patient :D
  12. Re: Wardrobe needs love, would appreciate some advice

    Alright, I tried A*Men and Chanel Egoiste today and A*Men is a definite no, on my skin it smells like piss and chocolate, not exactly what I want to smell like ;) Egoiste was good, if a bit...
  13. Re: Wardrobe needs love, would appreciate some advice

    By the way, here are the notes for L'Homme de Coeur:
    Angelique, genievre, lavande, bergamote, cypres, iris (bold), feuilles de violette liatrix, ambre gris, vetyver, muscs.
    So, which fragrances...
  14. Re: Wardrobe needs love, would appreciate some advice

    Oh, by the way, and I can also get Lanvin Homme, if I recall correctly, that also falls in the 'sexy' category :)
    Again, though, I am not sure in how far, L'Homme de Coeur already covers this... I...

  17. Re: Chaos by Donna Karan - old versus new?

    Since when is there a 'new' Chaos? I thought the 1996 Chaos was discontinued... and I can't find any other Chaos in the Fragrance directory.
  18. Re: Which scents chicks dig/females love/blah blah blah

    The thing is, I just want to know what qualities are generally 'sexy' in a fragrance... chocolate, as in A*Men or vanilla as in Pi? Or just generally any sweet fragrance? Anyhow, I am going to try...
  19. Re: Which scents chicks dig/females love/blah blah blah

    I could use some general suggestions what fragrances fall into the 'sexy' category and are appropriate for my age group (21) and appeals to women in my age bracket (again let's say 20-25). Then I can...
  20. Re: Which is the ultimate vanilla scent for men?

    La Maison de la Vanille - Moai
    An unapologetically Vanilla scent that is marketed as a men's fragrance but could definitely be worn by women as well; so not sure if that's what you are looking for.
  21. Re: Wardrobe needs love, would appreciate some advice

    That's Lalique, right? Alright, I will definitely check it out, thanks for all the replies so far... On a different note, Gucci Pour Homme II was not that bad after the drydown, but I will still skip...
