Yes yahoo! In my e-mail this evening. So many choices.
How was the Derby Remik?
Thanks Duke for the info. I will sample first.
This is the one I want to try. I hear good things about this unsung Malle.
I only had five of them. I must be an outlier. Especially, since I love Platinum.
One spray and wow! So 80's like. This is so unlike anything that I currently have. I have had Bohemian Black in my sights as Blackbird was a stunner. I have that Sexmagic and Epipheny rounding out my...
Congratulations on the Malle purchases. The shipping being uneventful now that's a very different story. But I adjust for that type of thinking now a days. 13 days and still sitting in customs. I...
Thanks rynegne. For some reason I have been going through a floral scent fetish of late so this may hit the sweet spot for me.
Amouage Jubliation XXV, Aventus & Dior Eau Sauvage
Bottle on the way for me from a fellow basenoter. I can't wait.
I have been on the fence buying this one. Very good to know.
I agree. This is a safe and enjoyable workday scent for me.
I love it too. I can only imagine how the original was.
Not sure about others but the Opus benchmark is VI. I find it intriguingly suave and uplifting to the senses a dry amber than brings the burning sands to you. Wonderful!
Very impressive indeed. Thanks for sharing.
Exactly what I have been doing. If you venture to the Netherlands with 21% VAT with a outlet such as Skins and the saving become even more attractive on a big order. EN is a great outlet for...
Thanks PalmBeach. This puts my mind at ease. The MAAI thread itself is a great testimony.
Sadly, I have always been on the fence to try this because of the frequent complaining about longevity on most sites. I just can't bring myself to even be remotely interested if the cost doesn't...
I tend to like that thought and I'm sure not far off the mark.
Smell is the litmus test for me.
I haven't tried it but you had me at slightly reminiscent of Silver Mountain Water. I will now have to explore. I know this line usually has monster longevity so two positives already.
Congrats I hope you enjoy them. I have yet to sample them but hope to in the coming months.
I have an order out at the moment with EN since the 16th. I hope I can have it within 9 days like...
Parfums MDCI Chypre Palatin
I am seriously considering Bogue MAAI if I take a deep breath from the cost per ml.
Thanks Robspace for the heads up. I am sorry you had to go through what you did? The old mantra "if it's to good to be true it probably is".
Rania J Lavende 44
Memoir woman & Lyric woman in Amouage line are standouts over the male counterparts in my opinion.
Thank you for sharing. A very interesting house of fragrances to be sure. Soul sounds interesting.
Hopefully, if we keep chipping away when we see if they have items in stock during the order process a friendly mention could be in order.
I find the selections on par or exceed other houses of merit. I do agree Un fleur de Cassie is a hidden gem which doesn't seem to garner a lot of attention like others in the lineup receive. Personal...
Me too. I would gladly pay for it with the savings 19% VAT and exchange rate for US residents.
I agree with the above comments. I do hope they make arraignments to bring this to the forefront again. Hopefully, sales would improve.
Sorry you don't care for Silver Mountain Water. It is my favorite Creed for some time and a excellent compliment catcher.
VIW is great for the warmer regions were you reside. I don't mind Royal...
Platinum Egoiste is a staple in my work fragrance arsenal. A winner in my book.
Shipping is the only problem. They are great and the exchange rate beats the socks of Stateside vendors. One of my favorite outlets.
Thanks. I am very fortunate this time around. Although bought for the summer a very nice scent indeed. Big bottle as well fortunate for me after reading the longevity issues. So a re-spray every now...
Love that one.
May I add L'ombre Fauve by Perfumerie Generale
Not achieved 100 bottles just yet but I would speculate 10years plus would be a very good estimate.
I just received mine today. I must say a lot better service this time around. Enjoying MFK Aqua Vitae this evening.
Great scent and a steal for the price.
Great I can't wait to hear what you think of the Profumum.
I have a sample but it is fleeting. I don't think it's full bottle worthy for me. Definitely not in the same ballpark as La Nuit which I have a great relationship with.
It is a winner! A blind buy for me and one that I really love. Pushing Tango as the my favorite from the house. Very good longevity.
My ETA is Wednesday. If this is correct they would have shaved a week and a half of the their last discount promotion.
I love Vanille as you do. Vetyer and Ambre are very well composed and I enjoy. I never really wanted to pay the big bucks for OUD at the time. But I am very happy with the three I mentioned.
This was a pleasant surprise. Very nice indeed.
Yes that is a good estimate. Sometimes more than 12 but not much more. A very good premise is 2 weeks.
Maison Francis Kurdijan Aqua Vitae for a unbelievable price.
Opus VI, Interlude Man & Jubilation XXV are my personal favorites.
Is anyone having trouble getting this one to work. I have e-mailed Claire numerous times and nothing is working for me. Perhaps it only works on Blackbird my previous purchase and not newer...
I do need them! Thanks Hednic.
Aqua Vitae seems to have mixed reviews do you like the accords? Also, another question mark is its longevity being all over the board.
Thanks Socialwoman MFK Aqua Vitae for half price is a very good deal but I know it will take forever to receive any feedback on if I got it in time. I'm keeping my fingers crossed though and sweat it...
Yes. EDP is a really good one. I'm sure the longevity would be worth the backup in its self.
Bentley for men Intense
I have to admit I am a Creed Fan boy. But I have many other mistresses in the fragrance world.
These are all excellent.
Let me add
For the longest time Interlude Man from Amouage held that title until I discovered Norne by Slumberhouse.
Eau Sauvage for personal reasons.
CD Eau Sauvage
OC Silver Mountain Water
TF Tobacco Vanille
After your impressive dialogues about Royal Bourbon Vetiver you have me believing into a purchase in the upcoming weeks. Sounds impressive.
Japhur pour Homme
Balenciaga Pour Homme
Midnight in Paris
Ambre Sultan first by a long shot then Chergui. I never connected with Arabie.
I like most of the recommendations so far. I will add Silver Mountain Water and cheaper Burberry Touch.
Armani Prive Royal Oud, House of Matriach Epiphany, Zegna Javanese Patchouly, Puredistance M and Rania J Lavande 44 amongst others.
Most likely from that group the Armani hopefully will be my...
Raina J Lavende 44. This was a complete surprise and a must buy for me this year. My sample is almost depleted.
Add Ambre Sultan, Fille en Aigulles, Norne, Blackbird, Herod, Tango and Chergui.
My favorite is SMW and your correct the dry down is awesome. Creed Spice & Wood is just one you may want to sample it is quickly becoming a top pick for me.
GIT is one of the winners from this prestigious house.
Welcome to the forum.
Sound suspicious to me if you attained it from a reputable website vendor. Fragrances can go bad if not stored in the right environment. This could be a knockoff or old stock...
Original Vetiver by Creed is one of my favorites.
+1 on Montales Red Vetyer awesome scent.
Masque Russian Tea
MPG Ambre Precieux Ultimi
Bruno Fazzolari Au Dela Narcisse des Montagnes
I'll admit it I love and have worn my wife's Lyric Woman. Beautiful scent.
Oriental followed by woody oriental.
Can't wait. Keep them coming. Very enjoyable to see what you think on each scent.
I use all my fragrances but underuse perhaps 10 out of 75 ish. Sad fact is when purchasing new ones I let many go wanting for a season until I rediscover them again.
Thanks pencilling down your thoughts.
Opus VI is a winner hands down. Surprised high marks on VII also I just couldn't connect with it.
First in Fragrance from Germany still offers the line. What is the best male fragrance from the line?
First in Fragrance for me. After VAT is taken into account each item is so much cheaper. They are pleasingly plentiful with samples and the customer service seems very prompt with e-mails. Luckyscent...
Kalemat is awesome. One of my best pickups this year. I did the same I went through Amazon by Arabian Oud and they weren't stingy on the samples either. This scent is very opulent and not no dime...
Silver Mountain Water from Creed. A subtle crowd pleaser.
I am a big fan of this house but I have yet to try this fragrance from MFK. I hope to in the spring summer months.
1740 is just a great scent period. One of the best from the house to me.
Just received my sample from Vagabond Prince through Fragrantica and it's not a bad one I will revisit this more. In fact it's becoming very interesting.
Thanks Josh for the updates. All of what you said made perfect sense. Norne is outstanding indeed! Keep up the great work. I will be a repeat customer.
Tobacco Vanille also.
I only have two so far and love both. Rose D'Arabie and Bois d'Encens. Hopefully Oud Royal will be my next from the house.
I have to say House of Matriach wins in the enticing to buy more and getting repeat customers out of the three I listed. I have to admit though the buy on Norne with the discount was excellent....
Great pictures. I presently enjoy Opus VI a very dry opulent amber. Delicious in every way. Very rare anyone speaks of this masterpiece. Interlude and Jubilation XXV are two others that I really...
Yes I agree. Turin is a eloquent describer of fragrances and I do enjoy his reviews. However, wearing and enjoying is a very personal thing. Lists are lists to some degree of pleasing the masses. You...
Dior Homme Intense is a very good and desirable fragrance when I am in the mood for it. I would place it ahead of the one.
I have to agree. Silver mountain Water takes you to the Alps in all it's majesty. Metallic cool and pleasingly fresh this tea scent in my humble opinion is in a pedigree all on it's own. Absolutely,...
We'll then. Norne the magnificent. One spray and wow! The forest opens up to your senses. Being a big fan of Fille en Aiguelles but this takes it up a couple of notches above that. My first foray...
I don't know Jack Royal Oud wasn't bad was it? Granted Oud was listed in name only and not actually predominant in any way in the fragrance. But I catch your drift it's been done backwards forwards...
Wow! I am very shocked at the voting so far. I though Tauer would win going away. I'm sure if this was taken a few years back Andy would be on top. It goes to show tastes change and the evolution...
I will be down in the next couple of weeks sometime after Christmas. We usually visit Perimeter and Lenox Square Malls when we are in the area. Thanks Chuck for the information now if I can somehow...
I second Blackbird & Balenciaga Pour Homme. Vintage Aramis 900 & Au Dela Narcisse de Montagnes are also stunners in the dry down.
Own a very potent vintage bottle and it is nuclear. My favorite from Amouage by some distance. Perhaps due to the watering down of their new additions perhaps. This has always been a stunner to me.
Thanks Russian I love this scent and happy it seems to be fulfilling more potential. Very nice to know.
