Thanks. However, I've tried both of those and don't really like them. Have a great day.

Looking for Dulcis in Fundo, Encanted Forest, Fusion Sacree Pour Lui
Yes, yes, yes. And maybe whether the pineapple in various batches is sweet or sour.
See the list of what I have to swap below. I'm looking for the following:
Phi Une Rose du Kandahar
Fusion Sacree pour Lui
I need to find good homes for these fragrances. All are at least 90% full and most have boxes.
Creed Millesime Imperiale 200ml - $100
L'Artisan Traversee du Bosphore 100ml - $115
How verified? Laboratory testing or human perception?
Why is Creed the only company I see criticized on this forum for batch variations?
Has to be more to the story...
What are the variables in determining the smell of different batch numbers?
A person's nose - no two of us smell things exactly the same way.
A person's skin - our skin reacts to fragrance in...
So, are we to conclude from the responses to the question that older Creeds don't have the batch number on the bottle and the newer ones do? Side by side comparisons of my bottles sans batch numbers...
I'm in an interesting conversation with another fragrance connoisseur. I have purchased numerous bottles of Creed and currently have three in my collection. Nothing I have now or have ever bought has...
I've tried them all and like many of them - BUT - none are worth the price. I'll pay what it takes, but Bond just doesn't rise to that level.
With all due respect, according to other threads about Creed, they didn't do fragrance until around 1975 so how can this even be a controversy?
Excuse me - but - wasn't the name of Hitler's party the National Socialist? Are socialists "right wing?"
Someone please share with us what this fragrance, Royal Mayfair, has done wrong. What is it actually guilty of?
New Haarlem is a clone of Michael Jordan Legend only the Bond is VERY much more expensive.
As someone else has stated, Killian makes very sweet fragrances. I like sweet, but his Sweet Redemption...
Agree that it's totally different. VF is more of a spicy vanilla. It is cheap however and is nice.
I played "back in the day" - 60's and 70's and wearing fragrance was a waste of time. You and your equipment all smelled of cigarette smoke. Nothing could penetrate that.
I get a foul smell from the basenotes of many Creeds.
The only reason I get tired of fragrances I have is that I keep finding fragrances that are BETTER. I could care less whether designer or niche.
Maybe a whale ate a squid then pooped it before full digestion was complete.
Cedar Atlas by Atelier Cologne is...well...CEDAR.
Don't know about specials. Was trying to buy some Tauer PHI Rose du Kandahar and they seem to be the only shop that has any right now.
Anyone bought something from The Perfume House? Are they legit?
Sorry - I wasn't addressing my comments to you but people in general. There are always exceptions.
don't care for Terre but Chergui is one of the best fragrances ever concocted. The more I wear it, the more I like it.
Had you visited a site like Basenotes in the early 90's Joop Homme would be all the rage. Guess what - for the most part, it's still the same fragrance it was back then. So, the disdain it gets here...
Amber Absolute absolutely. Amber is my favorite note so I've tried most. Ambre Sultan on me has skanky basenotes. AA is very linear and keeps that magnificent amber note throughout.
Regardless of what you wear, ask yourself this question, "What if the person I'm interviewing with doesn't like what I'm wearing?"
Or even worse, has a very negative reaction.
I would never...
They also make Rhinoceros and at least one other, maybe Squirrel or Pole Cat?
THANKS SO MUCH FOR GUESSING 49!!!!!! Actually, that's my birth year - 1949.
Based on the wardrobe, I'd guess Zerby is 40-45.
Invasion Barbare for being the opposite of what it sounds like it would be. Nothing barbaric about it.
Want to purchase or swap for:
Rose De Kandahar
Terri Bozzo - Perfumes by Terri
She's in CA
Hope it's all legit, but unless there has been a change, the VIW cap is blue.
You have great taste. those are the four I just bought.
Just tried all her samples - excellent. Just ordered four. Prices are unbelievable for EDP.
If you aren't already familiar with Perfumes by Terri, and you're a gourmand lover, check them out. ALL their offerings are excellent and the prices are phenomenal.
Many great vanillas our there. One that is vanilla without being overly sweet is Vanilla Flash.
Also think Shams is good but didn't crave the rest of the line.
I was born too early. When I was in school, the girls could only wear dresses, skirts, and button up blouses. We couldn't tell what was under there...
If you apply to clothing, be sure to spray on the inside. Some fragrances will stain the fabric.
Amber Absolute and Aventus. Also have backup of Joop Homme ...oops...probably shouldn't have admitted that.
People who use words like "shit" in these forums.
I'm there also. First, I'm just not finding anything that is really different or interesting enough to buy. Second, I've realized that I'm so busy testing samples that I'm only occasionally wearing...
YES! Give him a gift certificate.
I wear whatever I like regardless of the categorization. Two I particularly like are Coromandel and Shalimar.
This happens to me everywhere I go and it is extremely irritating and frustrating. It's their job to approach you but, after you've stated you need no help, they shouldn't continue to spray cards and...
West Third Brand's Tobacco 1812
Smell Bent's Chile Vanilli - spicy patchouli with a bit of vanilla
Sonoma Scent Studio's Incense Pure and Champagne Bois
Naomi Goodsir's Cuir...
Totally agree with nightcutter
Several times in this forum I have recommend Sonoma Scent Studio. Now I'd like to recommend another company.
Smell Bent is a small, independent perfumer. As a counterpoint to the "seriousness" of...
Hope it's better than the last releases.
The closest I've come is Amber Absolute. Not perfect, but close.
Can't wait until today's "popular," in style fragrances become the "smells like an old man" fragrances in a few years.
That is such a fantastic idea. I have TOO many fragrances yet can't contemplate getting rid of any of them. Let the testing begin.
Wow! You don't like S&R? At least I have the courage to post my own face.
The point I was trying to make is that care must be taken when using only words. Missing body language and tone of voice...
I've had A*Men and all the flankers and Pure Havane is the best.
Since body language and tone of voice can never be included in these postings, it's very important to carefully consider your words and the impact they alone may have on others.
Too many smart a__ __ comments here. Believe it or not, some people were not on basenotes in 2011-12 or whatever year you want to use. If they're new, they can't possibly know what was discussed 3-4...
That was my point during the Creed discussion. Some basenoters indicated they would not buy Creed because they felt their history as presented by the company was fake.
I say to heck with all that...
I've completely fallen in love with Tom Ford's Amber Absolute. Unfortunately, it is discontinued. I have a decant but it won't last forever. So, I'm thinking about trying to recreate it and am...
Harkening back to the recent discussions of Creed's "fabricated" history, does this mean we now also turn against Montale?
OMG! Do you folks actually believe that companies don't exaggerate and lie? I really can't think of one thing currently being marketed that isn't exaggerated.
The point I'm trying to make is that...
IMHO, designer scents come from companies that do other things as well such as Ford and Armani.
Niche refers to fragrances coming from companies that do fragrances exclusively.
I do believe...
Stayed up too late last night and didn't get enough sleep. About halfway to work this morning I realized I hadn't applied any fragrance. I almost returned home but had I done that I would have...
You know, what difference does it make? It's all about the fragrance. If you're so hung up on the "status" of wearing something from a company supposedly created in the 18th century, then obviously...
Yes, Hodor, Hodor...it's anything like Hodor himself, I suspect it would be very much like extreme BO.
Many, but Habit Rouge comes to mind as particularly bad. Also, any "aquatic."
From the notes I should love this. But, I tried it several years ago then tried it again last month and, on me, it is a horrible stink. My wife has also tried it with the same results.
Probably some truth to this but, if the childhood environment/smells have a big impact I'd be wearing Fabulous Fatback, Perfect Pintos, Boisterous Bologna, and Terrific Taters. Occasionally I might...
Great description. I don't like AMen because of the tar note so use this instead.
Absolutely. Two that come to mind are West Third Brand and Sonoma Scent Studio. I have Tobacco 1812 from West Third and it not only smells great but lasts forever. I also have a couple of excellent...
Incense Pure by Sonoma Scent Studio.
I think this is correct. I also think that back "in the day" men used "after shave" to soothe their faces after a shave whethere at home or at the barbershop. They didn't want their fragrance to be...
#1 - Royal Oud
Just be sure not to use too much. Somewhere in the crowd will be someone who doesn't like it. You especially don't want the boss to be that person!
I agree - this one is great.
Ah, those were the days - Hai Karate, Jade East, Brute, English Leather, and Old Spice.
Despite the fact that these fragrances used basically all the major ingredients of today's fragrances, it...
Not a recommendation but wanted to let you know I'm holding 200+ samples right now and would be happy to talk with you about them and what I might have that you want.
Welcome to basenotes.
Please don't wear fragrance to an interview. What if the interviewer dislikes it?
Naomi Goodsir's Cuir Velours (velvet suede) is awesome.
LADDM (sorry for you acronym phobic members)
Made many mistakes but learned from each of them what I DON'T like! I've bought and discarded many more fragrances than are in my current collection. I NEVER blind buy anymore.
Adding nothing to my current collection, I have enough juice to last until at least 2030. My strategy now is to, where possible, buy only decants. That way I will have more fragrances and will be...
Try several offerings from Sonoma Scent Studio. Many feature natural woods.
I got tons of Creeds, Tom Fords, Armani Prive, Jo Malone, etc. at these stores in Charlotte. You just have to act interested and ask. Tell them you don't buy without trying the fragrance for at least...
Holy crap! Royal English Leather for $8,000? I bought a bottle at Neiman Marcus maybe four years ago, didn't like it, and traded it for GIT. Had my crystal ball not been so foggy!
Stores like Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom will cover you up with samples. I recently went to both of them + Hermes and came away with between 15-20 nice samples, some is spray bottles.
L'Air du Desert Morocain
Santa Maria Novella Pot Pourri
Serge Lutens Chergui
Madja Bekkali Fusion Sacree pou Lui
Thank God that our "sniffers" are different. We all tend to pick up different aspects of each fragrance. Me? My nose really picks up anything animalistic. I read reviews by others that describe a...
Maybe it's variation in the natural ingredients? Does an orange ALWAYS taste exactly the same?
I didn't make this up - just sharing the research reported in a reputable medical journal. You can base what you do on either the scientific research or your opinion of one. Again, just reporting...
