what is similar out there that I compare it with ?
Lets talked about it: Bijan.
There is a famous latin singer that wears it. I happen to like his music and...
I have the following niche fragances for swap. I am looking for other niche options so please try me.
Fougere Royale by Houbigant. 100ml. Sprayed once.Cap + box.
Orange Spice by...
What are the fundamental differences between IB and 1725? Can anyone pinpoint it for me? I own 1725 but never smelled IB.
hi Wayne send me your details via msg same thing axmaster
I would like to give away two fragrances preferable to newbies. Basenotes has been a great source of opinions and information, so basically sharing is really a matter of fairness. I have more...
I cant find anything that epitomizes the quintessential fragrance for man as Paco PH does. Simply glorious, uncomplicated yet epic. It has the punch other superb iconic men fragrances lack such as...
I gave my sister as a present a bottle of Aqua Oriens and she really likes it but cant find it. She is now looking for something in those lines. Any recommendation please?
Thanks a lot....
Breath of God by Lush
Rien by Eldo
1725 by HdP
I like it, in fact I wore it yesterday and after a shower I can still smell some on me. It is VERY similar to kouros but more refined.
thank you all for your opinion. :-)
I will pull the trigger.
What can you tell me about Eloge du Traite? Its described by many as a great modern fougere and ELDO surely know how to push fragrance genres over the top. What is out there that could...
thanks a lot for your hints and advise I will order some samples, better than blind buy.
good to see you back mate.
blind buy it, I mean. Thanks
Is there anything out there similar to give me an indication of what to expect? I am thinking to blind it.
I read the reviews yet I am interested in your recent fresh interpretation.
Thanks a lot...
thank you all for your great opinions, 90% of the fragrances you are recommending I already had or still have. I will check the 10% that I dont have looking for thar elusive holy grail that never...
In your personal opinion what would be the best fougere in the market. Basically I am looking form a barbershop fougere with class and style. If I can find a hybrid between Paco Rabanne + Rive Gauche...
it should be terminated.
hard to find, in fact I never saw it before.
ouch... it was nice though :-)
oh crap the one i tried is called kenzo Jungle elephant....... is it the same?
the bottle I tried is different it has no zebra hair on top, squared bottle.
Besides Fat Electrician and Rien that I already have what are their also unique and worth offerings???
I agree with you all, perhaps a little cloying yet bearable.
Potent juice, great offering really, quality is also superb. Any fans here?
thank you hednic... immortalle..... same as in 1740 , tons of it. A fougere should not have immortalle as core ingredient
Le Male, the most disgusting fragrance on earth
What is similar out there to Fougere Bengala? I need an indication before I blind buy it.
hednic what is the number that accompanies all your posts in this case ( 3767)
From the new Lubin offerings (excluding Idole) which is the most original/ unique one?
hahaha fair enough
you guys kidnapped my post, at the end, no fragrance discussion.
*hit, they keep changing regulations...
In an increasingly regulated world from today we will be allow to own ONLY the following. Pick yours and let me know.
1 x niche
1 x designer

thanks mate, any input? what is your take on it?
I just pulled the trigger (blind buy). Is the barbershop noticeable or rather very sublet? I never tried Invasion Barbare either so this could open the door to it. I am always in the quest for the...
the one I got opens like Jicky or MdM... briefly. very nice composition and also very estrange
wow got it already. It opens with a blast of fresh civet and then, very fast, goes medicinal / leather. It has a smoky vibe to it, tar perhaps? Incredible this fragrance was created in 1901. After...
I found one bottle still in square shape and icy bands around it. Is the juice in the new bottles the same as the former?
Estratto triplo? wow.... let me try first the regular one before I jump into bigger ventures :-) Thank you all for your kind opinions.
well my sister was in Firenze and she got it for me at the main store, I am very excited. I like Knize Ten and I already went through a bottle. Then I got ELDO Rien and also Cuir Beluga so, I am into...
Have any of you tried it? Is it similar to Knize Ten? I am about to order a bottle as it seems to be a fantastic leather scent, and being from 1901 certainly intrigues me greatly. I have read all...
JPG Le Male. The combination of lavender and vanilla makes me sick, it smells like Plasticine. The same goes for The Dreamer and Caron PH, those two notes combine are a no go for me.
I have been wearing it for a week or longer now and... I am experiencing a need to give it a rest as its getting cloying.... thick.
The rose note seems to be more prominent than I initially...
I am most impressed with such a fantastic fragrance. It creates the most realistic humid pond vibe, rose, green, grey, perhaps one of the...
You should get mouchoir monsieur
Cuir Beluga hands down I bought it for my wife last week and she keeps getting compliments, every time she wears it she is surrounded by a exquisite aura , it may not seem like a sillage monster but...
good suggestions everyone I never heard of Lizzipan and Galimard, good call. Keep the coming.
I am looking for something that, believe it or not, have not found yet (after 200 + fragrances). What I want is something like Paco Rabanne pour Homme but with more body,more potency and...
thank you for your opinion.
I have MpG Centaure but I dont really get any vetiver in there, I also have Encre Noire but it gives me a headache (must be the ISO E Super), I also have Vetiver Haiti...
I just pulled the trigger and bought both blind, I absolutely adore vetiver the wilder the better.
How do you compare both? Which one do you think is better and more original?
I am also after...
Thank you all for your suggestions, very interesting , a few of them I did not know of. Definitely I will try to get a hold of most.
Ok guys help me here.
I would like to get up to 10 niche fragrances.
I bought Idole and Itaska last week and I like them both, however I am not too keen to unisex fragrances.
If you could get...
Itasca by Lubin. awesome vetiver smoky fragrance, pure quality.
thank you for your kind opinion, it seems quite a complex fragrance perhaps covering too many basis. I am somehow tired of the woody/cedar drydown.
I am considering their signature scent for man, any thoughts? I never tried so it will be a blind buy... ouch!
really? I guess I have to revisit Fleur du Male. ...
Polo Modern Reserve or Mugler cologne.
Finally I pulled the trigger and bought Custo Man. If you like Original Vetiver and Mugler Cologne you will enjoy Custo Man. Pungent citric synthetic opening that mellows down into a sweeter/ vanilla...
I have 4711 already.
I never ired Crantree and evelyn thanks for the tip.
I am looking for an eau d cologne with a superior quality, more volume, something that shines. My current favorite is AdP colonia and I also like Cartier eau cologne so I like Armani, yet I am still...
I assume there is something else but ISO E Super and alcohol. Isn't it?
Creed is like Apple products.
it seems Molecule 01 is well known for not being smelled by the wearer but by the others.
I am glad to learn that someone else is experiencing the same. I have never smelled ISO E Super in its purest form but Molecule 01 so it must be the cocktail what bothers me and not necessarily ISO E
Certainly Molecule 01 is a very interesting fragrance regardless it only contains or for the most part ISO E Super. I am regaining interests because I tried it again not long ago and my wife thought...
nowadays everything seems to be fruity (1 million) or Iris (Dior Homme). In this case the fragrance is not bad but why should you buy a fragrance that is pretty much copying other. Get the real deal...
I wore Armani Eau pour homme for years and years as I considered one of the most versatile fragrances of its time, also elegant and refined. Yesterday I tried Eau de Nuit and it has nothing in common...
Who is the perfumer that most impressed you with one creation and disappoint you with another?
just ignore all the animosity towards Polo since its a product of a typical basenote snobbishness. In my opinion Polo "classic" has a place in any collection as one of the most remarkable fragrances...
I have two bottles and I reach for it often.
While I was embarked in a journey that took me visiting most niche houses I forgot how good Armani eau pour homme is. It seems it has been reformulated though as I find it weaker yet still fantastic....
Signature scent: Polo Modern Reserve
Work scent: Armani Eau Pour Homme
Going on scent: L Anarchiste by Caron
Close encounters: Molecule 1
Most daring: Knize Ten
Sophisticated: Bois du Portugal...
Swapping: Parfums de Nicolai ROSE PIVOINE eau de toilette.
100 ML bottle with cap. Sprayed 3 times only.
I am opened to suggestion.
Thanks for reading and Merry Christmas:thumbup:
Hommage to Man Lalique
Opened to suggestions
*looking for Modern Reserve (Polo).
Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier PARFUM D'HABIT.100 ml BOX, CAP 80% (SWAPPED)
Jacomo de Jacomo.100 ml DEEP BLUE 80%...
ok thanks for your input, perhaps time to stock up a few bottles...
I have read mixed comments. Is it a special edition or a regular one? I hope they dont discontinue it as I adore it.
Which one would you buy?
I like Bulgari PH and L Eau d Issey PH equally, in fact I find both in the same league an category. I am based in a small city in Africa and I found both for sale in...
What a surprise! The closets juice to Rive Gauche yet, it has that barbershop vibe but fresher and "happier". The geranium dominates all through the fragrance life. Icy (Geranium) Fresh...
it seems a promising beat.. I like the bottle as well.
Creed Original Santal and Joop Homme
- - - Updated - - -
Paco XS = Himalaya
I am sure nothing smells like Aventus yet it could hint you what it smells like. For instance if someone asks about GIT one can refer it to Cool Water and if they need to know what is MI like they...
the Sprint bottle and Gold bottle are identical only we wording changes... very confusing.
I never tried Aventus before but I did read intermittent comments that Zara Gold smells somehow like it that is enough resemblance to get a flavor what is Aventus about. The problem is that...
thank you for your offer but there is nothing that I fancy from your list. Good luck.
CK shock for him.
Paul Smith for man.
VARON DANDY BY PARERA.
Polo Modern Reserve. Pure class and quality. What a great tribute to the monumental Polo "green".
From my 100 + fragrances I chose M.R. as my wedding scent.
I am somehow intrigued about 24 Gold but I cannot find an online store to buy it. Can anyone of you point me out in the right direction?
A mixture of Le Male+ XS Black+A*Man.
I have taken their 15 more significant fragrances (out of 60+ offerings) and it adds 263 positive- 47 neutral- 80 negative.
In my personal opinion Kenzo is one of the best designers brands and one...
as long as you dont wear Le Male...
certainly the juice is what really matters but I also appreciate a good bottle and packaging, it shows care and some degree of pride in their own product.
I wonder how much money of what we pay for an average designer fragrance is allocated to:
- The fragrance itself.
- The bottle/flask.
- licensing+ other expenses.
