Try Wild Aoud by Montale.
This is pretty difficult to narrow down , but here is my list.
Amouage Memoir Man
MDCI Chypre Palatin
Dior Bois D'Argent
Thierry Mugler A*Men...
1) Redundancy of reviews, how many reviews of Aventus, DHI, and Black Afgano can one watch? Most ground has been covered and the new reviewers are merely repeating old info without offering anything...
I like the forum here on basenotes its much more informative and the debates are lively.
Obsession gets no love, but I will never be without it.
This is an interesting observation. I have a bottle of Aventus that seems to have become much more powerful after I used it a few times and some air got in the bottle, but maybe its only my...
Pure Havane or 1 million.
Definitely get your nose on a sample and buy it if you like it. The three or four perfumes you could have had for that price will still be there for a future purchase. You have a lifetime to collect...
This is a frivolous hobby, how someone can blow 700 dollars 10 perfumes, 7 perfumes or 3 perfumes then balk at spending it on one perfume makes no sense. Because in the end you still blew 700 hundred...
Dior by a knockout!
I own a couple of scents with that note. Yojhi Homme and Lolita Lempicka au masculin Eau de Minuit. Enjoy them both immensely.
I don't mind a tester , but I would prefer a cap.
I would say Yohji Homme, its amazing for such a faint/airy scent. Its discontinued ,but worth the bother of tracking down.
It has to be Yohji Homme.
Don't wear anything, it can't possibly help you get a job so don't bother. Just be clean and awesome at what you do.
I have had issues with the USPS as well, when you open a case an inspector is supposed to call you back within 24 hours. However, I received no response on two different occasions. There is talk of...
This...no matter what you do 99cents will never be a dollar.
It is possible because I get that musk+flower=soap thing from a lot of frags. It just kills it for me when something smells great for an hour then dries down to a bar of soap.
I Agree with the OP vetiver is not good as a main note in frags. Creed OV may not be a real vetiver scent but is just a scrubber to my nose for sure. However,because it is so bad smelling Creed OV...
No similarities here.
Everything in the house of Micallef has serious longevity issues. They smell great but are hard to recommend imho just because 3-4 hours is unacceptable for the price. I know someone is going to...
Get it while the getting is good, rumor has it slated for discontinuation.
I use to wonder the same thing. Here is the official response from MDCI.
The glass bottle spray cannot be opened and refilled. It is a spray, and the pump cannot be removed. If you do...
I just got into the fragrance game six months ago but my favorites are:
MDCI - Chypre Palatin
Paco Rabanne - 1 million
Nasomatto- Black Afgano
Dior Bois D'Argent
You can easily get a reformulated M7 decant sample from eBay. That's what I did. Glad I did too, seemed way too similar to Oud Wood. I already have Oud Wood in my collection and owning M7 would have...
Agreed. The guy looks like a bum. No forty something man should walk around looking like he slept in his clothes and doesn't own a comb. Then he has the nerve to rock a frag? Hahaha.......
It was reformulated once and both versions are great. It was discontinued so you have to blind buy it. There is no way to get a sample. Just go for it, if on the off chance you don't like it,you can...
One spray to the chest. If outdoors hit a wrist and do a wrist tap as well.
I prefer Cartier Declaration as well. I don't think you need both of these Terre d`Hermes seems redundant imo.
PI Leather Edition
Invasion Barbare by a long shot.
It goes back to the discussion of how many sprays. Many people do not use common sense while over spraying and making fools of themselves. I think it is a serious problem that people refuse to...
Don't buy Sublime Vanille. What you want is Vaniglia del Madagascar from Farmacia SS Annunziata Dal 1561 Firenze. The problem with Micallef is her stuff never has proper longevity so test her stuff...
Keep it for your collection.
Fragrance collecting is relatively inexpensive if you buy quality. I've collected many other things in my life and the key to collecting is taking your time and going the slow and steady route. Rome...
I say buy what you want with your money and wear the heck out of it.
Its not her place, if she is not your woman why are you catering to her?
Since you are worried about your identity don't do it. Why you do something you are ashamed of owning?
This is like an intense version of PI with a smooth leather note throughout. Longevity/projection much improved as well. It is now shipping to the US from:
I wear Creed Himalaya or Dior Bois D'Argent to work every day except Fridays so they are definitely putting in some serious work.
Amouage and Serge Lutens are next on my list of houses to invade. However I have smelled very little of most houses.
If you get electronic bills just reply to the email with a attachment of your utility bill. That should get around the fax (really who uses those anymore? Lol).
I use 15ml as being owned and anything less as a sample. 15ml is at least month of continuous use so its safe to say you own it.
A woman can easily wear Dior Homme or Dior Homme Intense. I also think a man can wear Cuir de Russe. But everyone can't wear everything. Just because a woman may look good in your shirt doesn't mean...
Best male rose scent is Lumiere Noire Pour Homme by Maison Francis Kurkdjian.
Thanks guys. I'm going to get the Pardon first then test LIDGE. I don't want chocolate cocoa accords in too many of my fragrances so I'm trying to find the best of the class.
I love M7 and M7 fresh glad I found out about them and got to enjoy them before they dissappeared.
Both of these powerhouse frags are said to have a similar vibe. Can they both coexist in the same collection without being redundant? Also list your favorite of the pair.
Spicebomb is the clear choice here.
Its on the website for sale to France,Spain, and Belgium now.
Less than an hour on me. I'm amazed people are getting six hours from this!
45$ is a good price. Its what I paid for mine (boxed tester with cap). Longevity is 4-5 hours good sillage and projection right to the end on my skin. Amazing scent for the money I would put Martine...
Don't have a similar vibe to my nose.
I would advise that you toss the bottle. There is no need to represent yourself in that manner. The negative impression the first hour leaves with people is not worth the dry down imho.
The best way to sample is to be polite to the SA(which you did). But don't be ashamed to aggressively test and mooch samples because that is why they make samples. You don't have to prove your...
I find it largely irrelevant because in my experience if the sample sucks so does the full bottle. I don't think its wise to not enjoy the sample then buy a full bottle because you think it will...
If you own Cool Water there is no need to collect a bunch of redundant frags. I would make the decision after you use up the Cool Water. I do believe in owning the "best in class" so it might be a...
I do samples at home. One on the back of each hand.
The wardrobe feature seems to be working fine for me.
1 Million makes a good aftershave.
My gf has Aqua Florentina and its not the worst of the bunch. The bottle is similar to the bottle of Michelle Obama's signature scent Creeds Love in White except for the roses. The Aventus bottle...
I tend to listen to the guys who answer simple questions. What does the frag smell like? How does it perform? ..etc..etc. Some will talk for 10 min without even giving that simple info. However its...
Sure, nothing wrong with a nice collection. However you want to be discriminating. On the designer side there are diamonds in the rough to be found and cherished, but don't go buying every sports...
My top summer ouds:
1) Wild Aoud by Montale
2) M7 fresh by YSL
3) Aoud 1 by Brueckner (hard to get a bottle if you live in the states, but decants are plentiful if you check out splits)
I love the concept. Can't wait to smell these.
Don't wear anything to a job interview. This has been repeated because it is good advice.
Agreed. If you feel something is too feminine just skip it. There are tons of other great fragrances out here to choose from without creating some sort of internal moral dilemma. Everyone draws the...
Great scent. Possibly posed to overtake ADG as king of the hill.
Check the box and read the notes 13 in the reformulated while 4 listed on the vintage box.
Aventus and A*men/Pure* are the usual suspects, however the juice is mostly good. The most over rated has to be Musc Ravageur, the heavy clove and anise are not winning any awards anytime soon.
Bleu de Chanel
I have a GF who doesn't like when I wear Bois D'argent. I tell her I was wearing it when you meet me so get over it.
The house of Creed makes some good fragrances, however with longevity issues on some fragrances its not a good buy in my mind. I have a bottle of Aventus with the silver lettering flaking off, label...
My GF and buddies know about my collection. I just say I collect fragrances like fine wine. Everyone thinks its interesting and cool.
I just spray on skin. I don't want to take the risk of messing my clothes up or wearing them out quicker than normal.
Exactly why I can't be bothered with these. Too hard to find without jumping through a bunch of hoops.
M7 has been discontinued and M7 Oud Absolute has been introduced as the flagship product of the M7 lineup. M7 Fresh (a flanker )is discontinued.
I am a fan of spicebomb myself.
I have not tried TL, how does this compare with Montales Aoud Leather?
Keep it at two sprays or wear something more suited for work. No need in doing further damage to your reputation.
I haven't tried it yet.
Luckyscent is good.
Thanks for the tip.
I have one bottle of everything I own.

I have one bottle of everything I own.
Memoir Man first and Reflection if you can squeeze it in as a second purchase.
I don't buy back-ups, my feeling is if they can't be bothered to sell the product then I can't be bothered to buy it. I don't purchase ancillary products because would rather use the money for a new...
I just tested this one, interesting....
M7 is something that will give you some variety to your wardrobe, its just great juice. 1 million is in a class by itself as well and fbw not your typical AdG wannabe nor is it too complex.
Neck under Adams' apple and a wrist tap.
You might not want to load up on vetiver, try something different like GIT if you can get a good price.
The batch variation is a real concern. But its not as extreme with GIT as it is with Aventus. I got the original pineapple batch of Aventus with no smokey feel at all (Y01 batch). I pretty much stay...
Yep, I got one pending as well. Nice topic, I was getting worried.
