and BOSS nr 1 of course :-)
thanks guys, New West, Giorgio and Armani Eau pour homme seems to be the best frags for that place and time...:-)
Of course, every scent of the eighties, I know, but a bit more specific ?
well said !!
- - - Updated - - -
Well said !
I knew it, Renaissance, but the quite strong reaction of Jacomo saying otherwise made me doubt..
Jacomo de Jacomo used to be my signature scent in the 80ies.. Bought it again some time ago and it did not smell the same as I remembered..
I placed it on Facebook and got an...
now that s what I mean !! Used to be such a good scent...
I can :-)
The first one, I ve bought in 2001 in St Tropez, France.
The second, the one from sephora, my sister in law buyed for me last week in Paris, in the sephora shop..
I can say that the...
some nice answers :-), I like eau de Patou, especially frags that were in fashion that time... Thanks !
I would say, Eau Sauvage - Dior (the glam days of St Tropez in the 60-ies)
since the reformulation of ADG (weaker and softer), i suppose it has to be AHS...
My vote : l'eau pour homme Armani...
I ment scent ofcourse :)
guess I m over 300.... could you imagine how difficult it is to choose one every morning ! ?? !!.... I m very jealous from guys who just have one and don t have that problem...
maybe Lovinghealien, but the reformulations of Dior and Chanel weren't the greatest eather !!
Iceberg Twice, for sure !
we all have a glamourus feeling when whe are speaking over the houses DIOR and CHANEL.. Now, do you think that YSL provoques the same feeling in their fragances and why ?
now that what I mean, Roman_nik !! But i could swear that Le Male Terrible resambles more the original than the current Le Male version ...
could it be Le Male has been reformulated ? It did not have the same freshness / lightness as when it came out, IMO...
Sorry if this has been asked yet,
Waw, so much reactions :) Thank you !!
for me, I think Dior has a tad more sophistication and elegance in there frags (and name).. I still can not forgive Chanel how they massacred Anthaeus, and...
Wich house is producing the "better" scents ? I mean in terms of originality, quality etc...
Without any doubt, go for the EDC ....Almost the same smell as the great original !! And buy also the soap, great quality for the money, as all their products !
Why can"t the companies just bring one GOOD perfume once in a while instead of 3 in a year... I miss the 80 ies and 90 ies
Perhaps : Bleu Sport de Chanel :-)
I still have the Prestige version... more flowery and intense....
How much different is the current (latest version in the specials serie) version ?
so should I get the perfume or the Edt...?
so sorry, the question came in my mind and popted it up...but thanks !
can a man wear Chanel nr. 5 ?
Thanks for the link Brian ! But personaly I don t see Draper wearing Eau Sauvage Extreme... :-)
thanks for the suggestions, and this, Jack, is so true :
Oscar de la Renta Pour Lui - But most of his oakmoss companions did not get out of the Eighties alive and the poor chaps that did are half...
sorry if this is old news ( to lazy to surch in the database) but, if I see him in Mad Man, I think inmediatly at Paco Rabanne Pour Homme (I know, did nt exist at that time)..
was better before the reformulation... Have both of them... Not longlasting ..
my friends, a simple question :
which frag of the 80 ies has survived best after the reformulations ? I mean, stayed the closest to the original ?
This is exactely what I experied !
thank you all friends, so for the majority, it is the use of cheap ingredients... but if I think of Tabac Original, it s cheap, but still a very good made scent...and I don t think they make it with...
is it the ingredients, the simplicity ? Can you smell immediatly if a frag is cheap or not ? Is it only the use of expensive ingredients that makes the difference ?
opinions guys :-)
if they don t have back the original formule, than I totally don t understand why the do it :-((((((((
will do :-) Thanks
maybe asked before, but is the formule of the renewed YSL pour homme, Jazz, Rive Gauche and M7 the original, that is, before any reformulation ? Such as the Givenchy collection.. ?
they are always watered down :-(
I think that most of the time, you will notice the difference.. In the case of acqua di Gio f.e., you can smell that the frag is not so strong anymore...
But in case of Obsession for...
My dear friends,
as we all know, every frag has been reformulated...
Wich reformulated frag is the closest to the orignal without almost any difference ? Name a few :-)
Could nt have said it better ! Bought it again last year, bottle is the same, but the juice is much weaker. Becomes a habit, sadly enough
does anybody know if this one is reformulated (stupid question, ofcourse it did, I guess) and still as good as the original ?
yes there was, have it :-)
Could'nt agree more ! Had the original version, bought in Italy when it came out, but the new version, wicht I bought couple of months ago, man man, what a difference ! Stay away from this !!
thanks for anwering fellows !
the original before the reformulation was very good, bought it again last year and very disappointed...lost strength and longlivity..
I find they make very good fragances..from the same house of J.Bogart..
any preferences ?
nope... Due to new regulations, almost evry frag has been reformulated ! Even the boss of Dior (read this 3 weeks ago) said it, and he said, some reformulations are better than others... So, I have...
it happens that I get a lot of compliments wearing Bogart Pour Homme, and I mean a lot !!! But it s not my favourite one..But everyone is feeling good when he get s complimented, so, when I m...
this is so true...like all the powerhouses back than .... shame...
I will not go back to this one due to his reformulation... I was very good and longlasting, but now its, IMO, only good in the beginning and than fades quickly ...
aha ! I ll put up the Blend 30 tomorrow :-)
thank you Igor/1,
I have the latest version but had when it came out, the original...So no need to add more at your advice... will look for the alternatives you ve mentioned !
This is so true..
when I trie CW on me, I cannot help that I smell a kind of cat pee on my skin...bab chemistry I suppose, but I have a friend who has the same experience..
does this rings a bell...
did anybody ever get compliments on this, wearing it ?? And do you think a gentlemen could wear this, amongst others wearing luxury frags ?
thanks guys... Guess one of the frags that hasn t been reformulated (or barely noticed) is Tabac Original...gonna stick to this one ;-)
That's exactly what I mean Desmond Hume...Glad I m not the only one who's noticed the difference...Waisted money ..
Has Acqua di Gio been reformulated ?? Bougth one (not a fake) and I missing depth and longlivity...what a shame !
nice weekend everybody !
Be sure to first try YSL La Nuit de l'homme.. I bought the bottle two months ago and the scent does not work for me, so for me its kinda overrated... Maybe acqua di Gio, works always, girls like a...
now guys, suggestions ??
ps, and I don't mean the most popular !!
that it s now much more lighter :-)
The first (and only) bottle I bought was around 1974... I was 14 and when I left home to go to school, overloaded myself with Lagerfeld.. I remember, standing...
Thank you fellows, I ve heard a lot saying that the testers were stronger to convince buying the retails...Now I now its not true..
And tried this morning my bottle of Kouros again, and I must...
well, If you buy Classic Lagerfeld now, you ll notice that the powdery effect is gone, its more spicier than the original !
last year, I bought Kouros in a perfume store, and found it different...not the same anymore, so I just used it twice..
Today, in another store, I sprayed with the tester and that...
You r so right ! The good Kouros is dead, the latest reformulation is just a shadow from the original...sadly, the same with Anteus / Chanel... bought the 2 last year and very disappointed :-(
Tried it this morning.. nice bottle... on my skin, it turns to be (when the final notes are settled) a Thierry Mugler's Amen light.. Not bad, but to close to the skin for me :-)
If u can buy the vintage, go on !
Last month, I bought in a shop the EDT....what a mistake, is just a shadow from the original... Don t know about the after shave, but think it s better that you...
I ve not read all the 46 pages of compliment-getters on top of the male forum, but I wonder if anybody ever get a compliment while wearing TABAC Original ?
It s much praised (well deserved) but...
simple, get another wife :-)
Happy Newyear !!!!
with the latest reformulation of Kouros, it would'nt surprise me if Paris Hilton for men has a better longlivety !!!
the same to you guys :-)
I could not agree more !!! A scent is a scent, it has NO age !!! Mooi gezegd.
So Oslo-Fjord, have you tried one of your 'dated' scents ever on you ? ;-)
None I guess... We can hardly speak of Powerhouses after the reformulations.... So sad
so people, what would George Michael have used in the Last Christmas clip ??
My guess is Drakkar Noir ?!
your s ?
I have to admit, I get the most compliments with this one.. but after a while of using it, it get bored... but massive longlivity and sillage !
I can't agree more with Rickbr !!! Had it when it came out and bougth another bottle last year.....won t buy another one again... defenetly not the same...
Have the one gentlemen though... but tested the other two and I would go for YSL La nuit...but on my skin, it doesn"t last very long, so I ll have to wait for the perfume version...
which perfumes for men would have been used on it ?
I mean, perfumes from that time, guys...or project that time... Thanks
I have bought Kouros in the beginning of this year and you are right !! I read that due to new European standards, the formula has again changed... This is defenitly NOT the Kouros as it was... ...
in my town there is perfume store, the owner is a man who s about 70 years old or more.. He still keeps the shop and he has still loads of stocks f.e. Azzaro pour homme, Jacomo, Alain Delon.. all...
maybe this has been asked again...
in my case, it must be over 300 (and growing)...and 1 ladys frag (La Nuit - Paco Rabanne)....
I think I have a problem ;-)
So, that means if you buy now a bottle of Allure Homme Sport, you ll get the reformulated one ???
thank you guys..
DustB, well, in the police world, more and more female perfumes are getting thrue, as the are more and more females in the force..(not always a good thing, I say)..but, amongst...
to all the people on this fantastic site, to the moderators, tho the maker(s), to all the woman and men sharing there thoughts, love and live.. To all those who make this happen !!
Bought it last week... had jugded it ont the first impressions on my hand..... not bad but absolutely NO longlivety on me :-((( The original was better..
I bought like 10 times from them, never had a problem.. The last time was 8 weeks ago and never received my order altough the money was payed... Send a mail but never got an answer... So never will...
What a coincidence ! Bought two days ago the edt Denim and I had a smile on my face when I smelled it again, after 25 years...
Indeed, a pleasant, soapy en leathery scent, clean and comftable to...
Lacoste, the original...but...now, it s only a shadow of the real original ...O I hate those reformulations :-(
Not any more :-(
I couldn't agree more Oslo-Fjord !!
Dit anybody (who was young in the sixties and seventies ;-) ) remember Joe Mannix, the detective in the so called series ?
Now, Mannix started in 1967 I think and stopped in 1975..
Hey guys and girls..
What do you think about his frags..? Any favourites ?
greetings from Belgium :-)
thank you all for the suggestions and kind words !!
Made me think deeper, and perhaps it's more psychologic than I thought ....So I have a prob....so let's deal with it ! :-)
Reading over all...
aha...1280adam, you have to admit that it was rather confusing, regarding my thread, don't you think ? ;-)
Mind you, it s nothing concerning about getting to know someone, certainly not being a loser !!!
a psycologic view Sandy..maybe you re right...thanks !!
