Quoted for Truth. Kron often splits Tom Ford and his are really well done. Great spray bottles and packaging.
get both! :D
Yep, all the time.
Hey, I got that strange plastic note too from my original bottle of Pure Malt. I gave that bottle to my brother--I wanted to give him a gift for his bday and when it was unexpectedly re-released, I...
Wow... I know the 2011 batches are more potent than the previous year but I'm not as lucky as you are. If any Creed would last 12 hours on my skin, I'd be in heaven.
Yeah my skin eats up frags too :(
I get 3-4 hours on creeds. I love how they smell but because of this, I tend to reach for rich, sweet winter-friendly edps
half the time, PH's opening is harsh on my nose. i like really like PH, but i LOVE TV. it lasts for ages!
I absolutely love this scent. I think this is my 2nd favorite scent ever. I think the fact that it remains potent for a very long time helps with that opinion
i like the way they make your blankets smell when you wake up
It might have something to do with you living in Pakistan. How long a frag lasts depends not only on skin chemistry but more so where you live in my opinion. On my trip to Vietnam (which is very...
and after that,
boss bottled sport eau fraiche extreme cool summer edition
Rezzing this thread cuz i noticed people kept mentioning diet but nobody was specific about it. What should you be consuming?
I suppose it is somewhat boring, but it's not as boring as say, Abercrombie and Fitch Fierce.
It smells clean, pleasant and inoffensive. Perfect for a professional environment.
Well it does remind me of 1 million as well, in its sweetest stage.
Tried this today. I quite like it. However, I opted not to buy it yet because I have a TV decant incoming. I can totally see the association with TV. I can't comment on it's likeness to EDB,...
fack! I missed out on this too. I have a crappier 2010 batch. Do you know when this deal will come around again, specifically?
No one said it was shockingly good?
Thank you, Dullah. I'm guessing if you already own TV, you would gladly pick this one up anyway?
i don't know about elsewhere, but many of the californian girls i've talked to only like fresh and clean scents... bleh
bland is one thing, but the fact that those type of scents don't last on my...
people bash whatever young people tend to over spray, particularly since these are so loud, over spraying makes it a bad experience for others
Rezzing this thread cuz I want to know how they compare in terms longevity and projection. Can anyone input?
yep, it's definitely sleek
It's a meee, MARIO!
Pure Malt has a better opening but New Haarlem has a better drydown, and since the drydown is much lengthier than the opening, New Haarlem wins.
What lotion do you use?
Despite its poorer projection and longevity, MI smells sooo much better than L'eau D'Issey.
This is what I perceive as well.
I felt that way at first. Thought it was okay...then one day, months after owning it, it just hit me. Now I can't resist this smell.
You're right, it doesn't project much but it lasts a long time
Heh. Love and Luck's longevity is even worse on me!
These are exactly my thoughts after having read through everything in this thread.
I haven't had much experience with niche so I'll just say this in regards to designers; once you grow accustomed to the iris note, this scent becomes stunningly wonderful
Which one has better longevity?
They are both absolutely worth owning. I liked DHI to start but I didnt' start wearing it much until 5 months after purchasing it. Now I'm just blown away by it. The more I wear it, the more I...
Cool. Do you just spray from the main bottle into the little ones?
Yeah I really think so too. It's ironic--considering most women I know have a sweet tooth, yet they prefer fresh, light, clean scents.
I never really thought it was THAT great but I can see why people like it. Overrated? Probably, but hey, I love Le Male and people think that's overrated...
yeah if you don't smell le male after an hour...it's totally fake.
sometimes i smell it the next day
what seller did you buy them from?
it's much sweeter than those two but it's a very fine frag. its classy and mature without smelling old. so it really just depends if you enjoy gourmands
I am hoping it's just my nose but I've tried it on two separate occasions recently and came up with the same results. On one hand, I made an old thread about how my Cool Water smelled very...
I bought it from Sephora.
I've owned my bottle for less than a year. The top smells very harsh now and not fresh and uplifting like I remember it. Is it because I brought it with me on a month-long trip to a very hot and...
I like fall/winter the most. It's the time you can get away with wearing the most bold, strong smelling stuff. Summer scents don't last long on my skin... but on the bright side, you get to spray...
I love them both but L'Instant Extreme is more complex and interesting. It is also a lot more rare. Although HM is very pleasant, it is a little on the feminine side.
They are both worth owning...
I was in the same position as you. I figured since it is inexpensive I could get away with blind buying it. My experience echos what others have said. I think it is a very well blended, soft...
I haven't tried all of these but here are some more ideas.
I'm surprised people find Irish Spring that harsh. I quite like it.
Your husband seems like a cool dude. Too bad he won't use anything that isn't bar form. Those poufs keep your skin in good...
Kinda like the phrase Real men wear pink?
I just realized from your avatar that Tom Ford must have a huge brain
I dont understand the hate for this fragrance. Yes it is common, yes you can smell it yards away from the store. As people have mentioned, its popularity can probably be attributed to its...
You know, I waited (more like hoped for) in anticipation for this for at least half a year and now that I have it, I'm not so sure I like it more than Pure Havane... The top notes are so very nice...
Can anyone who has recently purchased a bottle describe the smell in detail? What is your batch number? I recently bought it as well. #: 1T01...
Back with a little more feedback. I'm growing accustomed to having little anise but I certainly do miss it. I don't think it's the sprayer as a few have mentioned because this isn't my first time...
Got my bottle of PM today. Felt like a kid on Christmas :D
Now wearing it inappropriately to school for the hell of it. It's fucking delicious. My brother really wanted one too but he got his...
Why did it take them so long to figure out they couldn't honor our orders? Heh, talk about underestimating demand. Or is it they just don't have the materials to make it? Not only did the sale not...
I don't have the EDT but I can tell you a little bit about the EDP; it stays close to the skin but it lasts all day and then some.
I blind bought it and now it's my current favorite. If you don't like it, you could always sell it or trade it since it's a valuable limited edition.
My first cologne... I think was Polo Sport.
I was about to pass out until my phone notified me I had a new email. Thanks for updating us guys. I was shitting bricks the second time around too though.
I tried to log into the TM site but...
I had tried for 30 mins using two browsers with no luck. What kind of business is that??
What a fucking gip man...
"One or more fields in the request contains invalid data.

Haha you guys. Were you lurking online the whole time?? I can't get it to work either...
Exactly, it's like they were intentionally designed to be awful so that you'll want to buy their metal flask
Thierry Mugler is cackling madly as we hammer his website with refreshes. We should sue for causing emotional trauma!
Yes angle men pure muggles I buy it all
I tried that and although it made it better by increasing my olfactory sensitivity, it doesn't explain why in a side-by-side comparison, that the decant was so much more potent. And still, instead...
Huh... Interesting I never thought about it that way--that the perfumed court actually gave me the EDT version... It was indeed very strong anise with much louder projection. And yes I did side by...
I got it from beauty-enhancement. As I said already, I'm sure I got the EDP.
I'm positive I got the EDP. I could probably return it but buying another one else where wouldn't guarantee I would get something that smells different. That's why I'm trying to find out if anyone...
A few months ago I bought a decant of L' Instant EDP from The Perfumed Court. It was robust with anise. I was crazy about it. But I recently got a new, full bottle and it smells very different. ...
If Pure Malt isn't re-released... hell if I ever run out of Pure Havane, I'm going postal. Watch out.
Sorry I'm drunk
Honestly, I don't think it's all that pleasant, but it smells like power and prestige
something with longevity
la nuit or one million
I have not seen l'instant edp listed there for a couple months now and I check every day
Kouros and A*men are freaking potent. Even though a lot of people say that Fierce is strong for an EDC, I find myself not enjoying the same amount of longevity and projection others are claiming.
They are all nice. However, D&G Pour Homme smells a bit mature. Boss Bottled and L'Homme are probably the most agreeable and versatile scents for your age bracket but are weak in terms of...
Oh man! I love gourmands--well sweet scents anyway. I don't have a lot of experience with niche frags because they are usually too expensive for me. And the girls here in So Cal tend to prefer...
Cool diagram. I didn't even know they had diagrams for this kind of thing. I wonder how close movie stars stand next to each other when they are doing a close up 1 on 1 conversation...
Besides, they already re-released Pure Malt. Why not do it again? (That's a rhetorical question, they should definitely fucking release it again)
Yeah, it's one thing to generate interest; it's another to miss out on a lot of potential customers.
Goddamnit so that tweet that pure malt would be re-released for a short time in Sept is bullshit?
wow.. lucky! if only every bottle was like this!
Well done. I've worn PH for at least a week and it hasn't reached below the top star at all
I wonder if a 2 year time limit is too extreme... How long would a citrusy aquatic last before it expires in a very hot and humid tropical climate?
Happy and Green Tea...
They remind me of a girl I was in love with a long time ago.
Let's pretend your frags will all expire in 2 years. What would be the ideal number of frags to have in your collection so that:
1. Nothing outside of your rotation will be neglected and go to...
haha i know this is an old thread but i was sniffing fierce today and it totally reminded me of a more friendly version of platinum egoiste (which i feel is heartless lol)
which one lasts longer? ...
In my opinion, the edt smells fresher and the edp smells dirtier...
I'd say A*men. Givenchy Play Intense is chocolatey but has a bunch of floral too. I don't have regular Rochas Man, but I have the intense version and it smells more like cotton candy than chocolate...
Been checking strawberry.net almost everyday for a month to no avail. I like the prices but I guess I shoulda sucked it up and got it from beauty encounter while they had it.
who's the first chick? she looks awfully familiar...
So I tried it and I don't think it smells like GIT. Then again, some people think Cool Water and GIT are almost identical--which I don't agree with either.
I've only had the chance to sample the oil version. It was what I imagined Ron Jeremy's leopard patterned banana hammock to smell like. Any chance I'd like the regular version?
Your credit card company is being cautious. I've had my card shut down because I used it many times online and in many different places all in one day. I just had to clear it up with the bank. ...
We should get as many people to report as many air freshener scents as possible--because there's like trillions of them!
Cool beans. I'll have to check it out.
Ahh I see. You always have good answers to my questions
