Every time I wear Muscs Koublai Khan by Serge Lutens, the panties all around me fall to the floor.
welcome. search the site and you will find tons of suggestions. you might start here:
it is very difficult for a woman to pull off a truly masculine scent (in fact, imo it's difficult for a man to pull off). both the woman and the situation would have to be quite unique. i would...
something in Aqua Motu makes me vaguely noxious, which is unfortunate because i do like it.
i can't really remember Odeur 53 right now.
for an aquatic kenzo, try L'Eau par Kenzo pour Homme. ...
Chance - Chanel
Coco Mademoiselle - Chanel
Spring Flower - Creed
La Chasse Aux Papillons - L'artisan
Philosykos - Diptyque
i think some of you may be projecting your own preconceptions onto the smells, which is perfectly natural of course. but what i mean is that there is nothing inherently "weak" or "immature" or...
i love "bimbo" perfume. mmmmmm :D
i like the new cap better, but it's pretty generic/modernish looking. in my mind the old bottle will be the "real" bottle.
curve or ck one or something like that. something popular and easy to "get".
spring flower maybe
i say pretend to like it. the giver may have put a lot of thought into the gift. even if you don't like it, appreciate the thought and leave it at that.
in your specific case, as shycat said,...
i believe the specific offence in question is hotlinking, and not copyright violation. you can post pics as long as they are hosted by you - meaning you personally are storing the pic on some...

alright well i need to buy gifts for 2 young ladies, and i've decided to go with perfume. one girl is about 23 and the other is 17. i'm thinking of getting chanel coco mademoiselle and chanel...
coco mademoiselle manly? i think not! it's very feminine and sexy.
aqua motu is very oceanic, which i like. but there's something in it that turns my stomach just a little bit.
definitely for cooler weather.
yay! but why is your kitty dancing so fast?
oh it's a slighty different animation. cool. cute spazzy dance. :)
wait it works! should work as an avatar too...
edit: i just tested it in avatar. says the file is too large. i think if the...
smells like an old man and yet somehow appealing? why certainly...

for her slightly darker more introverted side: angel
for her pure girly sunny side: my perennial fav, spring flower
i don't really see a difference between what you're asking and what has been discussed. there are 2 measures of quality we could talk about. the objective and the subjective.
Q) objective. does...
i like it, but there's a hint of something in there that's not quite right. at least on my skin.
same as shopping for any frag. the only way to be sure is to get it from an authorized seller such as department stores.
for a slightly lower level of confidence (but still acceptable imo), look...
useful threads in the FAQ, under :
Q) How long until fragrances go bad? What is their shelf life? How does fragrance change with age?
welcome to BN. :)
i believe that everything there is to say about creed has already been said about 100 times. ;) if you do a search of the boards you'll have plenty to read. and the many reviews...
i was thinking that perhaps there is a difference in frame of reference for this frag. i've heard some ppl refer to it as "rotting vegetation". to me, it smells completely natural. it smells like the...
ok who revived this thread? ::)
i wouldn't trust it personally. that frag goes for $100 or so online.
i can't emphasize enough that there is no such thing as a "good cologne". it's all totally subjective. i agree with those who advised you to just go and smell some. there really is no trick to it....
AlthaeaSoaps, that is a fantastic picture. i hope you have it framed. :)
yes, that is quite interesting. i did find myself agreeing with yet still somehow puzzled by some of the female...
this has a cultural component to it. in the US the morning shower is almost universal. but i've been to quite a few other countries where a shower before bed is a given.
but that means you have more money for perfume! YAY!
haha ok... hmmm... i think i would keep it simple. just go to the bathroom and wash your wrists off with soap and water. then maybe use a stainless steel bar to get rid of some of the soap smell.
Rivière de Janvier is also quite enchanting. to quote my friend scentemental, it is "an evening wear version of Philosykos".
p.s. as you may know, Philosykos and Premier Figuier were both created...
love the topnotes.
creed makes some nice smellies. i like a lot of their frags.
but as others have said, there's no reason to believe that they are the "best quality".
so tiff, did you get em?
wear something really revealing so you have plenty of exposed skin to spray on.
awesome frag. i wear it in the summer. it smells like camping or a walk in the woods, so it works better in a non-urban environment.
well wearing similar clothes or something is very different than wearing the same scent. it just is. i don't think you did anything wrong, but the fact is that i (and probably most guys) would feel...
when you get them, model them for us. ;)
those are hot too. but i think the white ones still win in the sexy and pretty summer category.
how many pairs of shoes do you have? :)
you need to open a window, my man.
p.s. this is why it's not a good idea to wear fragrance to interviews and such.
years ago i read all of fleming's bond books. might have to revisit them.
doesn't your decision kinda depend on what color you want? like what outfits you would wear it with. maybe white for summer?
then again i never could figure out how girls decide what shoes...
AH. MAH. GAHD.
hehe wow man. :)
to veer slightly off topic for a sec, i recall hearing/reading that in the long run, moisturizing your skin is counterproductive. this is because your skin gets used to the extra moisture so it...
to make a bold and unexpected statement, the only solution is to wear nothing!
well, not nothing. just no frag.
ah i see. i've only smelled the new one, but was told by a couple people that the old one smells different. thanks for the info, grant and spawny. i love the new bottle.
i'm constantly approaching - but never reaching - my perfect 10.
my drobe is small but changes a lot.
i totally understand your husband's feeling.
if your ex wore it, then yeah, i'm afraid it's contaminated. i didn't read the thread, but i'm sure someone already explained it. and if this is...
regarding the "ex member" thing:
chanel allure and chanel egoiste. easy to wear, easy to like. they're a cut above most designer frags yet not as "strange" or expensive as niche can be.
oh and m7.
pretty much anything by chanel.
i thought that maybe through some bizarre twist of fate, the 7-11 was selling l'artisan.
regarding smelling other basenoters, there should be some secret gang sign or something to identify...
i get headaches from frags a lot too. seems totally random for me. no specific category. maybe a bit more likely with highly synthetic frags, but it happens with the supposedly more "natural" ones...
she could wear Love in White ;)
nice report timber! :)
my guess is Alien by Thierry Mugler.
edit: oops someone already guessed that. hmm...
Sun Moon Stars?
Night Of The Stars?
though i'm sure it's not necessary for me to mention at this point, it's a good idea to look beyond the first page when searching for swaps.
i don't think any apologies are necessary. just as long as ppl are made aware of the ettiquete. a few of you said that you bumped because of a change/addition. as far as i understand, that's fine. a...
according to bn tradition, no bumpy on swap board unless you actually change/add something. :)
oh see now yer gonna get everyone all paranoid again. ;)
as was i. or was i? :)
i think octo is being ironic. ah the subtle nuances of internet communication.
lol, oh come now. irony is not a hard concept to understand. methinks you give yourself a bit too much credit if you believe irony is lost on the masses. i suspect that it's not that we don't "get"...
it will be fine. i know we talk about the fragility of frags a lot here, but no need to get too freaked out. frags are shipped all over the world all the time. it's not like shipping fruit or...
as of 11:10 pm eastern time, may 20, the off-topic board only shows one page of threads. there should be quite a few pages. just thought i'd mention it.
i love you. come with me and we shall wear tiffany together. forever.
oh now don't go tempting me! i love a good flamewar! ;)
okok. replying but not discussing. woowee, this has been fun. but i will drop it now. only because you are such a nice fellow.
well i am indeed 34. but i don't believe you are 39. :) you know, you keep saying that you won't discuss it. yet you keep replying.
omg too funny! are you actually threatening me? hahaha! i'm 34. my intent is to have a discussion that makes sense. how about you?
edit: ah well, i see you removed the threat. thanks.
haha yeah i saw it. i chose to ignore that part. you don't expect me to do stuff just because you say it do ya?
umm lol what? you're a strange one...
pluran, not sure if that was addressed to me, but i guess it was. it's not my goal to keep harping on this. i have not looked at the thread since it began. however, to say that i/we somehow...
yes i did read your post. i just couldn't believe you were actually saying that ppl would bother fixing a little poll on BN, which is what it sounded like. afterall, if you rule out natural causes...
i don't care about the box but will not buy a bottle with no cap. that's just me.
are you saying there's something fishy going on? that someone is fixing the poll?
well remember that the internet (and therefore bn) spans the globe. overnight, you've got a whole new batch of people in different timezones waking up. there may be cultural differences in taste...
click on "quote" at the upper right of the post in question. then delete whatever you don't want to quote.
not to speak for grant or anything, but i'm sure those quotes are fine. :)
it's one thing to excerpt parts you like from ppl. it's another thing to blatantly rip off stuff - with no...
number one in my book: Spring Flower
number two: Love in White
Jasmal and Irisia are decent too.
10 ml decants.
welcome. :) be sure to tell us all about what you learn!
what the hell...
i believe that feeling is burning rage. no... no wait... it's dejected woe.
i like tea for two a lot. but you know, it smells nothing like tea to me.
yeah designer. designer frags are like textures. like a piece of cloth. feels nice, pretty pattern... i like it! niche frags tend to be more "artistic", and are often not as immediately appealing....
swan if you do a search for "real creed" or "fake creed" or "creed arabic" or something like that you'll get a whole bunch of hits, going deeply into the intricacies of fuzziness, dates,...
at the moment i favor:
Route du Vétiver (pleasantly surprised to see so many fans of this one)
Iris Bleu Gris
think of it as ways to narrow down your search. you go to a frag counter and there are maybe 100 frags there. there's no way you're going to skin-test all of them.
so start with sniffing the...
if the fragrance feels warm, wear it in the winter. if it feels cool, wear it in the summer. simple. but of course in reality there are no rules. wear what you like.
evening frags tend to be more...
