Sort of wanting ADG's Essenza, but I want to see how Pure Tonka is rated first
Lutens - Borneo 1834
Lutens - MKK
By Kilian - Pure Oud
From the fact that a lot of people like it, I may have received a bad sample. It started off good, but
I got a strong alcohol smell from it after a few hours & an even worse vomit-like odor a little...
Interested, but I really thought there would be a pure Oud by now
Moon Aoud - Red Aoud - Aoud Lime - Aoud Musk - Black Musk - Nepal Aoud - Intense Cafe
Gucci Envy, Marc Jacobs, & Mugler's "Pure Pepper"
Any problems with performance? I'm just curious because I'm sure it'll be back soon & I don't know if it's just better to go with SDV instead.
If you've tried both boozy Bentley Intense & Oud Black Vanilla Absolute, which do you prefer?
Serge Lutens - Muscs Koublai Khan
Like the Agonist house? lol
Really? I thought there were some excellent points discussed.
What do you consider the good designer scents released in the last 5 or 10 years?
I guess it's safe to sum up the answer, for the most part, with a NO! :dankk2:
Why even bother with that?
Thanks for all the other responses thus far though.
I'm starting to feel like once you compare the quality, uniqueness, & overall style of
a great deal of niche houses, designer fragrances (with maybe just a FEW exceptions) don't really compete.
Black XS L'Exces for Him
no full bottles & maybe just 10-12 samples toward the end of next year
still need to try some of the big names yet(Tuscan Leather, Portrait of a Lady, etc.)
so some of those & maybe whatever big...
What's Brown Aoud like? Any good?
I have a .42oz of the parfum, so I went with edt. If it's reformulated horribly, I'll give it away I guess.
The reviews seemed a bit better for Pro than Ess overall. I guess we'll see.
It smells like a xmas tree? Or just a dud?
last 2 of the year & (hopefully) next year
finally warmed up to this one, hope I don't get some reformulated junk
a bit odd of a choice for me, blind & never owned the...
I'm surprised man in black can be considered boozy, yet also be compared to spicebomb.
Anyway, I haven't tried MiB, but I own BI & recommend it.
Star Fucker - Opus Oils
I finally sampled Herod this week & would have to disagree.
I didn't get good performance with it & also feel dhi is quite a bit better.
I was thinking it was closer to London, but I actually...
Designer : I have faith I'll like Ultra Male & since my Le Male bottle is getting low...
Niche : I have several on the radar, but this Pure Oud sure is hitting the spot
While it is unique, it...
So, how's this house doing now? I haven't sampled any yet & didn't know if it was a success.
What's 1 designer fragrance & 1 niche fragrance on your "to-buy" list as of right now?
Decided on 1.4oz of Ultra Male, out of curiosity
2.5 of tdhpp
& a sample of Jub25, didn't understand the hype the 1st try, so maybe something was off...
I want to buy myself TDH edt or PP, but rumors of Reformulations have me worried.
Either Marley Herod or Hermes Ambre Narguile
That brings up a good point. Let's say someone gave APLS a 10 & APOM a 9, but if they knew APOM wasn't selling
as well, they might purchase APOM instead to help keep it in production. This can go...
Gold Intensitive Aoud
I believe it's spelled wrong on here AND Fragrantica.
I'm a fan, but I like the original a bit more. It doesn't quite compete with the best of the best in it's genre, but odds are no one else will be wearing it. At one time, I probably would have scored...
The more I wear Legend at this point, the less I like it. I'm not getting anywhere near the performance as Rochas Man & although the smell is good, RM is borderline great imo. Legend might be good to...
I love both, too close to pick just 1 for me, & agree with aoud lime also being great
I'll add moon aoud for something to consider.
Thanks, agree, working on finishing my .42oz of it now, took time to win me over though
I see & I have RLBO already too, not a huge fan though
For those who've tried Oud Black Vanilla Absolute, is this really worthy of the hype?
Does it compare with anything besides SDV? Bentley Intense, perhaps?
Are there any performance issues thus far?...
Ah, I see, thanks
Besides their vehicles, what offerings were you referring to out of curiosity?
I see. I've read the edt isn't as good as it was(reformulated I guess), but maybe 1 spray edt & 1 PP would do the trick.
Sorry about hijacking the thread :undecided:
Recommend anything instead?..
Perfect for fall imo, like the scent, bottle, & even the color of the juice
It's not in my top 10, but it's still 1 of my better fragrances from my 30ish bottle collection
I now have my eye on...
I've had it for a few years & was always a fan. At one point, it was probably in my top 3 but I hadn't sampled quite as many at the time. The only way I could describe it is very smooth & a bit like...
mugler - chyprissime
didn't see this in the directory, not sure it should be though :evil:
bvlgari - blackhttp://www.fragrances-4u.info/perfumes/bvlgari/bvlgari-black-75ml-edt/thumb/bvlgari-black-75ml-edt.jpg
aoud cuir d'arabie - montale
I guess I'll stick with it even though I may or may not start to love it before the bottle is empty.
What is it that you like about Absolute? I own & bottle & can't see a reason to enjoy it
even after several wearings. Perhaps I need more time, but I'd be surprised if so.
Please explain the...
Lol, do you really consider the differences "just one thing"?
Ah, I see what you mean. I'll have to look into them. Those 3 do need a few more hits.
I wrote "designer" because the good, autumn scents in the niche world are almost overwhelming, but I guess designers are growing as well.
I plan on using these the most this time of year & in no order.
I'm still sampling my way through all the versions of...
Thanks for the responses, I'll keep all this in mind.
Would buying a gift set be a possible way to avoid Reformulations? I assume they don't have the high volume of sales
as just a 50 or 100ml bottle does. So a set w/ deodorant, a mini, shower gel, or...
Sometimes I'm in the mood for 1 over the other, but I'd give a slight edge to dhi once you become comfortable with the iris.
I actually like the anise & pretty much everything else about lidge, but...
My sample smelled cheap & plasticky. It almost makes me think they accidentally made a bad batch but used it anyway,
either knowingly or not, since some seem to like it.
The fact you asked...
I just received a half oz. of the Parfum today. So far, I'm not getting good projection. I may try 1 spray edt, 1 Parfum & see if it helps.
I'm actually a fan, but I don't consider it a must-own. It seems especially appropriate for a night out on a 20-something year old.
Robes08 has a good YouTube review on UV if you're interested. I'm...
It's unique & perfect for a fun night out specifically in colder weather. I did a 180 on it over time.
It doesn't crack my top 10 list, but I'd say it's worth it for a decent price.
I love both.
Thanks, some think the Parfum is only different during the 1st few minutes, so I guess everyone has an opinion, lol.
Thanks for all the advice. I think I'll get a half oz. of the Parfum for now and hope for the best, lol.
So even your fave of the 4 has taken a hit, interesting & disappointing
I think I'm willing to give Terre d'Hermes another chance after many years. I was in the beginning stage of my interest in fragrances & wasn't a fan of my initial impression. I'm sure my tastes have...
I had no problems with Pure Coffee, but some do with Pure Wood.
My order is
1. Tie : A*Men, Malt
3. Tie : Havane, Wood
Don't like the others enough to own
A fan of Bleu, it seemed mostly woody though, didn't care for light blue from what I remember, I hear the woman's version is better though
1st I've heard of this house, I'll have to check it out, thanks to all for the suggestions, I have tried a few of those,
but I'll resample some to confirm my lack of love for incense(although I did...
As I decide my next batch of samples, why should I add any incensed-based frags?
If I want to smell like that, I don't see why I just wouldn't burn it in the room before I leave
instead of paying a...
Sounds great, not sure what kind of question you were expecting, lol
How's the frag?
Haven't heard of that house but it sure looks cool
I guess you know what I'm going to ask, lol.....
I would blind buy Tar if that happened, lol.
That's what holds me back from sampling more from the house. I'm not a huge fan of incense. It can be good with other notes,
but an incense-heavy frag is usually boring to me.
I read a response on here recently that said he felt like everyone needs at least 1 Comme des Garçons
frag in their lineup. I think I know what he meant by that. There are times when something off...
I've read some reviews of it over the years that I felt hyped it up a bit too much. However, I do think it holds it's own in the gourmand category very well, which is impressive considering how much...
Weird, I was just about to resurrect this.
Oud is a fragrance which celebrates the tradition of Arabic scents and presents the Orient in a perfect way....
Gucci Envy-like? No thanks
I'm also curious.
Oh, I wasn't aware of a reformulation. Another "one" bites the dust I guess.
Is there a reason you spelled Aventus backwards? Where's Kouros & Old Spice? No, I'm not joking, hah.
I'm not sure why, especially since I didn't even own it in it's heyday, but I've been craving, or at least considering,
a FB of CK One. How do you feel about it in 2015? Is it OK every now & then,...
Has anyone tried any of these yet? They sure look cool.
finishing off my sample of Ultra Zest
I've worn it more now & I think it's one of the good ones out of the flankers. I'm not sure I'm impressed with it as some of the others, but the orange note is actually good & this is from someone...
Even if "you" don't like it personally, Le Male is a classic that's been around for 2 decades & has aged much better than scents like CkOne.
While the licorice note in AM is pretty unique, the...
