Imogen Rose by Lush
Recent compliments received on:
Guerlain L'Eau Boisee
Canali Men (aka Canali First)
Have expanded my roost of Soviet era colognes just a little bit. Three standouts from the quick sniffs are Attache (second from left) - Polish People's Republic, the 70s (awesome, really unique...
Exactly Vert and Vetiver I own, and love them both, they are my comfort home scents, but I never tried to layer them
New bottle of Allure, with new bottle design. Don't know if I have a better batch, but this seems to be an improvement...
I really love this one. The smell of Coca-cola infused with cedar and incense. Dark, but transparent. Similar to Armani Attitude, but not as sweet
Picked this out of discount bin. First year of production, 2007
Is this a joke ((
This Avon TODAY, the new one with moss and suede - what's similar to it? I have a bottle in my field of view, but it is sealed, and the owner doesn't want to open the wrappings, nor does she have a...
Caron Pour Un Homme. Two-punch of lavender and vanilla.
Then - Balafre by Lancome,
Now - Chanel Egoiste Platinum
lots of early Demeter stuff
Dana Vetiver is one of the best. Really bright, zesty, fresh, airy vetiver. Has classic feel about it, but smells very modern at the same time.
What I love about my city is that there's a lot of small fragrance shops selling stuff that's rare elsewhere.
CPM EDP and CPM Concentree are different perfumes and have almost nothing in common. I just stopped by Chanel counter after this post and generously sprayed my wrist with Concentree. This is totally...
Sure you're not talking about Le Parfum?
The Art of Shaving Sandalwood. Dry, manly, refined.
An older version of L'Eau Boisee. May be the very first batch, actually, as the code reads 1Z02 = December 2011
In my neck of woods I bought mine for - what's current rate? - like, $15.00 for 50mls, and there's one more bottle left, going for about $35.00 now.
Interesting. My batch is CH200*** Very potent and complex.
Strawberrynet has the regilar Miglia 1000 for 50% discount for couple of months already
Read somewhere that for now it's Emirates-exclusive release. But as we know from the previous Chopard exclusives (Oud Malaki), this should quickly find its way into the West.
If you're able to locate the bottle of Lanvin Arpege, get it.
Just received the mail with the gift to my daughter, vintage Coco EDP from 1991
Couple of great discontinued frags from 00s. LOVE the musk in 212 White. Absolutely amazing flanker.
His current job position and the whole body of work proves the opposite.
When asked "Yo man! How it's going, wassup" - You reply "Nah - not much, just testing my samples"
The end is nigh, mark my words
Must de Cartier for women, mid-90s
Got a sincere compliment yesterday while wearing Antaeus from 18-year old girl, friend of my daughter. I have a bottle from 2001, don't know if this considered vintage or not
This is just WOW
I read this, and feel the smell of L'Eau D'Issey Pour Home Intense for some reason.
A quick question - what do you think is the better way of layering vintage fragrance with the current version of the same...
Drop by any Lush store in town, and try their Flower's Barrow. That's Geranium.
Eau de Patou pour HOMME? Are we talking about this fragrance, or there was another, Pour Homme version?
Paul Smith Story
Eau D'Hongrie (Hungarian Water) by Fragonard dates back to 15th century, and was created by the request of the Queen of Hungary.
Many receipts of Arabian oud attars are quite old, too.
Also: Equipage Hermes
What about Decibel by Azzaro - is there any significant amount of incense in composition? Reviews seem to state that.
W O W. Interesting.
Guerlain's in frosted bottle.
That very place - Molotok.ru, or another site of auction / selling board type - Avito.ru. But you must know exactly what you're looking for, because Soviet vintages is extremely complicated matter -...
Costs about $15.00. When asked if this is a fake, seller responded that all Escadas now are "quality copies from Emirates"....
Yes. The majority of them that you see for sale these days are fakes from UAE. New in boxes Escada Pour Homme, Magnetism, no Casual Fridays though.
I think this Zegna was in production for 5 years tops. It was introduced in 2003, mine is from 2005, according to the batch number on a sticker at the bottom.
This, gentlemen, will be a massive hit.
Hugo Green, are you sure? It has reminded me of Boss, but Boss Bottled, this applepie-ish opening with citrus is much like #6 has
Tested it again today.
It's not fleeting, it's quite tenacious actually.
Moderately sweet. Light. Transparent. Modern in a sense Guerlain L'Ideal is modern.
Fruity top. Ambery heart. Base - I...
Sold all my backups, except Kenzo Air Intense
Tested this the other day. Hard to say for sure, as it's been a typical fragrance store with a cacophony of other scents hanging in the air, but on a strip and a tiny bit that has landed on the wrist...
Found a rare and much-praised discontinued fragrance by Zegna, got it on spot.
You should really try the new Chanel Pour Monsieur Eau De Parfum
It's only a matter of time before someone else compares the two directly, and gives your conclusions a valid third-party evaluation
Got a sample of Intenso - fans of vintage DG PH will dig this one. Sweetness of the vintage is out, dry modern tobacco is in. If you own the vintage DG PH, you will recognize this new perfume as a...
Many scents are firmly attached to a certain memories about certain times, but the most vivid is Body Kouros and the early 2000s
Please consider the creation of a separate entry for Chanel Pour Monsieur Eau De Parfum. I think many would agree that this new Chanel product, while being somewhat similar to both Chanel Pour...
I remember Shiseido Basala being gathering dust on every shelf, then one day its gone in a click of fingers
Is there any reason to buy a Gentlenam's Aftershave, if it was made in the 60s? I see it at attractive price being offered on one of the Russian sites, but have my doubts about its plain usability...
I recall my talk with Kiehl's SA in Moscow about this one, they were going to axe the whole line, if I'm not mistaken. Great scent, awesome drydown, I should have bought it. Got Vetiver and Black Tea...
Left me speechless. Amazing work. Pour Monsieur Parfum
Bottega Veneta PH
Fantastic picks. I'll add vintage Versace l'homme. Of those less known - Myth by Dzintars, a masterpiece from the 80s
In India, they call vetiver "the grass of tranquility" for a reason, I guess. Vetiver fragrances are really calming for me
Another bottle of Chypre by Novaya Zarya. Evernia prunastri natural extract, and other usual suspects. $1.50 for 85ml splash
Like we say in Russia, if you mix a barrel of honey and spoonful of shit, you'll get a barrel of shit
Lush is famous for their competent work with customers. Lush Russia, at least. I'm very much positive that they would consult you, if you write them directly. But me personally, I don't remember the...
Sometimes I wonder, what colognes does Bryan Ferry wear. After his latest album I was watching a lot of his interviews on YouTube, and that thought often crossed my mind.
Vetiver by Dana. Bought blind. Awesome stuff. Goes to my Top 5 vetivers ever
Is this different from a regular CH Men? I saw Grand Tour standing side by side to CHM, but couldn't test it, caught a cold on that day
New release from Kiehl's called Vetiver and Black Tea smells fantastic.
Tend to agree. Same picture, better resolution.
If you by any chance come across the vintage 80s cologne called Mountain Lavender from Soviet perfumery Novaya Zarya, give it a try please
Top ten 2014:
Roadster by Cartier (8)

Guerlain L'Homme Ideal
Smuggler's Soul solid perfume by Lush and vintage Body Kouros.
Tuberose and fruity musks
About 200 FBs with many vintages and rarities like Egoiste Concentree, Balafre, and now-expensive Soviet perfumes, so I guess $20 000 minimum
Lighter and more wearable version of vintage Opium. Beeswax, myrrh and incense, huge sillage, lasts very long time, excellent, very natural.
Rare limited edition of Opium. Targeted for women, but I have many masculine colognes that smell more feminine than this spicy oriental that today may be mistaken for the hi-end niche unisex
Two sprays max, otherwise you'll ruin the first impression.
Estee Lauder Beyond Paradise for Men. Sea water and subtle white flowers on tropical fruits background.
From reviews: "To me this is a very informal summer scent. Not for the office and not for...
Writing this from my phone, don't know how to attach the picture, so -
If any of you know the version of Carven's Vetiver pictured above, then the...
I like the majority of them, and have a couple in my collection: Cuir Amethyste, and so elegant and understated Pierre De Lune, so I guess they're best for me.
I have BOG, Karma, Imogen Rose, Icon, Devil's Nightcap, Flower's Barrow, Euphoria, The Bug, and Dirty. Like them all, wear Dirty, DN, BOG the most
My wife is that rare person that IFRA cares so much about. She is sensitive to oakmoss. So any vintages around her are banned. If I need to use, say, vintage Versace L'Homme, I have to dress up...
Get both. Polo will be a great formal addition to the collection, Esencia will be the one you'll love and wear. My case, actually. I have the vintage Polo I'm very proud to own, and Esencia that is...
Have vintage, love it dearly, but don't wear it often - too many other options
Will def check that out too as soon as possible
Bottega Veneta PH is a stunner. Tested it several times, decided my life will be miserable and meaningless without it, got a big 3 oz bottle, and happy now.
Chanel Pour Monsieur Vintage
Bottega Veneta PH
Art of Shaving Sandalwood
Any vintage Dzintars that I don't have
Often fly to Moscow, they really try keep their airports fragrance stores a notch up. Many great lines are present with acceptable prices.
+1 Jean-Luc Amsler Prive
Sure. This is mine. Love it.
Totally agree - I'm nearing the drydown for today, and it is MAAAAJESTIC. Rich and expansive, love it.
