I agree with most of this post. I dont have a problem wearing SDV, it opens up pretty strong but mellows out after a couple of hours. Sublime Vanille is a citursy vanilla that is very easy to wear. I...
Put on a couple of sprays of interlude, if you cant smell it at the end of the day, then its your nose.
Yea right.. which is why you can go to some perfume stores and still find discontinued fragrances like Gucci Pour Homme 1 and Gucci Envy at or below MSRP? SOme businesses are aware and others are not.
There were a lot of great deals as late as yesterday before they smartened up probably due to the buying patterns and the unfathomable email questioning their low prices.
or because they are not widely available for people to actually test and smell them.
Try out Creed Millesime Imperial if you haven't. Otherwise, i would check out Bergamot 22 and the popular Xerjoffs (1861, Nio and Kobe).
Chanelle Allure Homme Edition Blanche is also excellent
Cologne of the Missons Le Couvent de Minimes and Guerlain Spirtuese Double Vanille. While SDV is a better scent, the price difference and similarity of the scents is enough for me to use the Missons...
This. There is nothing wrong with her nose. She prefers Axe over AHS simple.
Sometimes some of you people over think things...
Roja Dove Vetitver
Le Labo Bergamot 22
Bergamot is my favorite note in fragrances.
Lol i wear cologne as much as possible in order to make some sort of a dent in the amount i have.
I also prefer the "reformulated" one. It is a lot easier to wear than the original.
I really enjoy this one an it performs excellently on me as well.
Creed describes it as "fruit notes" i personally dont smell watermelon but a decent no of people do.
Doubt we will be seeing any Roja counterfeits anytime soon..
I smelled gasoline immediately i put farenheit on eons before i knew that basenotes existed. That is a major reason why i loved the fragrance because i like the smell of gasoline.
I beg to differ. Today i am wearing a singlet aka wife beater, a dress shirt, and a sweater on top of it and i put on three sprays of Virgin Island Water (which to me is one of my more subtle but...
It varies depending on the fragrance. I experience the same projection with minute amounts of tobacco vanille (small dabs from the 4ml official sample) at times chokes me out. That being said, some...
This is accurate. You can find it on at ULTA in the U.S. They are pretty similar but SDV is a bit more refined. I love SDV but am not that huge of a fan of Cuir Beluga
Creed. Most of their offerings smell good to me. I cant say the same for FM's creations.
Did they reveal the price of the flaccon yet, or did you just place your cc on hold with them?
Wow thats unfortunate. Did you try complaining to Harrods directly (assuming you made your purchase at the Roja booth in that store) or contacting corporate directly? You will be surprised at how...
Starting from where i am, i only have three i would get at the moment. A bottle of Roja Vetiver Extrait, a Bottle of bergamot 22 and and a bottle or large decant of Creed Pure White Cologne.
Vetiver Extraordinarie was more on the dry side to me and def not fresh. I dont recally perceiving a "bo note". I have heard that that Roja Dove created Vetiver extrait as his replacement for the...
Not much more to add. I am not a fan of vetiver scents but this is excellent.
Whats the difference between the two?
They smell alike. I prefer Original Santal as it is not as harsh to my nose as Joop. I grew tired of both and dont wear either anymore. This topic has been discussed numerous times on this board.
Every now and then. Timely topic because ive been wearing bergamot 22 all week. Its usually GIT for me that i wear back to back but add B22 to that list
my rating from Coldest to warmest
dior homme Intense (or parfum) not sure which one you have there
Gucci Pour Homme II
i am 100% certain that you are enough alone with this opinion.. :p
Creed has more offerings that appeal to me than Roja. So Creed wins in my opinion.
Tom Ford White Suede on occasion.
Ive read that Coney Island by Bond No 9 has a Guava note.
I haven't smelled Absolue to be able to comment but the other 3 are different enough where it wouldn't be redundant owning all 3. L'Humaniste while it smells excellent is just too fleeting to have as...
That sounds about right. I got 50 mL but luckily they sold it to me for $325. Its a great smelling fragrance but i doubt i will pay that much for it again. i can't even imagine the price will be...
1. Jardin D Amalfi
2. Creed Windsor
3. Noir De Noir
4. Miellisime Imperial
5. Green Irish Tweed
7. Xerjoff NIo
8. Bergamot 22
9. Roja Vetiver
10.Creed Original Cologne
The highlighted is acceptable grounds for divorce in 45 states..
Tom Ford Patchouli Absolu
Tom Ford Tuscan Leather- the drydown smells like an ashtray
Miellisime Imperial.. hate that ambegris drydown..
This sounds like my normal experience with Royal oud. It has excellent longevity but its projection disappears after about 3-4 hours.
I absolutely love this frag. My favorite out of the TFPB. Mine is also the dark colored liquid. It would be a shame if the lighter one strays too far from the version im used to.
If price isnt a big concern i would recommence the following
1. Xerjoff Nio
2. Le Labo Bergamot 22
I personally enjoy seeing what people think about a fragrance over time. I like the organization and requirement that people try to post in similar existing threads.
I used to like SMW but cant...
I agree with both posters above. The drydown is the worst part of Tuscan Leather as the "ash tray"/ stale cigarette smell is unrelenting. Its a shame as its a beautiful scent in the top and mid notes
Get a bottle of Green Irish Tweed and Versace Pour Homme and you will be all set. You can easily get both for $200
I def agree. The osswald sampled seemed bigger than 1ml the last time i got samples from them and their atomizers are excellent.. a lil too good actually. its unfortunate that people abused their...
I agree re Osswald but i believe they require a minimum of 3 samples be purchased.
These two are the only ones that caught my interest from his line.
Fresh smells like a lighter version of M7 with grapefruit added to it. At $60, it is definitely worth purchasing. Even if you do not like it, you can get your money back at the very least.
Spicy, Barbarshop with lavendar sounds like Sartorial Penhaligon`s for men to me..
@OP my choice would ve Virgin Island Water.
@sdotlow, i don't think its a bond thing rather its a decant thing. quite a few of my 10 ml decant tops and sprayers smell putrid after a while. I...
had vanilla and anise a while back. Nothing else has really interested me in their line up
i doubt ill be be interested in something that projects from 120ft away
I am surprised you are very surprised by this. It is a great smelling classic! See below
This is more like it :)
I am surprised that i get more compliments on Aventus from men than women. I...
lol planet fitness
didnt sound rude and this is my approach as well.
No you are not in the minority.
anyway, if OP insists on wearing something, perhaps 8711 which should dissipate pretty quickly..
Dulcis in Fundo
im not surprised. that GIT opening can be a bit too harsh or offputting. the beauty of GIT for me is in its dry down
I blind buy decants (5-10mls) only when i cant try out a fragrance at a store. I refuse to buy samples from luckyscents etc. I do not blind buy bottles.
Frapin L'Humaniste fits your description. It may have longevity issues but its a wonderful fragrance.
Nice write up. I agree with your take on all the ones ive sampled.
I did not like the EDT at all. The EdP is more muted and wearable.
I agree with this. They are pretty different to me on the opening. I havent worn Individuel long enough to see how it dries down.
I agree with this. I also layer my fragrances quite a bit and i prefer to spray one and then dab on the second (usually stronger) one at pulse points that way i reduce the risk of over applying...
Interesting POV. I have noticed that with GIT that i dont experience the harsh opening when i use the sample vials the SA's hand out. And dabs can be as potent as some sprays especially for the...
because it caters to a customer base that reaches past just its citizens..
Check your pm
Tried that a week ago and surprisingly enjoyed it. If only it were somewhat more affordable..
Jardin D' Amalfi
Green Irish Tweed- basenotes..
im guessing its an allusion to valentines day and guys disguising themselves to get away from any commitments.
I tried multiple times to get past the opening but it was virtually impossible for me.
People hate obsession?
Anyway answer for me is Bond no 9 New Haarlem.
Yes d&g light blue for women smells like Jardin D Amalfi. Use your own nose and smell it and make your own conclusions
i also prefer the reformulated version to the original.
That is rather unfortunate. While the flaccons are beautiful to look out, perhaps you should consider decanting it into something that would prevent evaporation.
It is a beautiful scent, and the rose, while slightly dominant ,is not overbearing. It mixes very well with the chocolate and patchouli. It is definitely worth a try
Nice video, but IMO, tests like these are difficult to base conclusions out of due to he fact that the test subject is experiencing the top notes which in a lot of cases can be very harsh and...
I like all versions i've smelled including the dreaded "made in UK" version.
Its a very versatile fragrance.
Excellent choice. :vrolijk_26:
Is it a compliment if he statement is negative? :tongue:
TdH, "it smells like cleaning product in here"
If you are looking for a strong, long lasting neroli, check out Profumum Roma Neroli. That one has NO longevity issues whatsoever. Sample it first if possible though.
i was also agreeing with you...
I also wear aventus in the summer with no issues.
LOL the OP already has. @OP, try reflection and ciel man too if you can from Amouage. They are not as popular as the heavier scents from...
One of the few Amouages i like. Very fresh opening and pretty good longevity. Ill probably get bottle of this if i find a decent deal on fragrancenet.
mugler Pure shot
Nope its working as advertised.. it becomes a skin scent around 2-3 hours for me usually. A bit longer if you spray on clothes.
I cant say this enough... if you only love the dry down, get Meharees.
Ahh that makes sense now. I personally would only load up on the fragrances that i love. Perhaps you could buy samples of all the Amouages that you have not tried out and see if there are any that...
I'm a bit confused at your question and what you are loking for. You are dealing with an Amouage SA who i presume would have access to all that Amouage has to offer. Why cant you smell them all and...
Get a decant of Noir de Noir by Tom Ford. Pure Havane is redundant if you own Pure Malt.
i do. Even one spray anywhere above my belly chokes me out. I prefer to actually dab it from the 4 ml samples over spraying from my decants. I have enough to last a lifetime and i dont even have up...
This. I doubt NdN will survive any layering attempt with TV
LOL @ L'Homme Blanc Individuel sums PoAl up pretty much, old drenched lady funk...
Noir D Noir by far..
Anyone can wear it.
