Sel de Vetiver by The Different Company
Creed Original Vetiver on this rainy, grey day. nice and comforting
oh look it's an argumentative creed thread on BN!
my guess is you're experiencing scent fatigue. this one hangs on for a good 12 hours for me and is truly worshipped as a longevity monster around these parts
Sushi Imperiale by Bois 1920
notes: citrus, pepper, nutmeg, cinnamon, Madagascan vanilla
from a sample, very nice - reminds me a bit of an oriental, but much...
haven't worn this one for a while and forgot how nice it is:
Must de Cartier pour Homme
Boucheron Pour Homme EDP
Today was (in honour of that Green Day):
Miller Harris Tangerine Vert
Creed Virgin Island Water
turning out to be my "casual Friday in the office" go-to scent
dayum i smell good
I'm a bit interested to know of these many scents that Creed has copied, Reej
do go on
will echo Mike's suggestion of Lemon Sorbet and Acqua Viva, and the suggestion of Neroli Suvage as a great Creed.... and add in a couple of my current favorites as well:
Miller Harris Tangerine...
smelling yummy today in a very comfortable scent:
Jo Malone Blue Agava and Cacao
I don't think i could pull this off with the warmer days, but today it's wearing very nicely
the wonderful citrus powerhouse of
MPG Fraîche Badiane
I'll go a different route, since (like many in this thread) I feel there are more than one in your list that are unnecessary
For example, I'd actually pick Erolfa over MI,etc
so here's the list...
making my re-entry to the world of BN with a return to form:
my SOTD is
Etro Lemon Sorbet
and biggest best wishes for a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my wondertwin Mike!
Hope it's a great day, bro!
Wow, no neroli? I was getting major neroli in the topnotes - maybe the blend of mandarin and waterlily? In any event, love it love it love it. Thanks again!!
Neil Morris Fragrances
see my NMF Week thread for more on this gorgeous beauty
Sorry I never got back around to talking more about October, had a h-e-l-l-i-s-h day at work yesterday, not much time for BN.
But October definitely stood the test. It grounded my mood while all...
Neil Morris Fragrances
Neil, I have to tell you you're batting 1000 here for me. Today I'm in...
I've just applied about a half hour ago, so I'll wait to fully weigh in until I get through these wonderfully...
i actually have a hard time thinking *any* niche is a good blind buy, unless there's a crazy good clearance deal, etc
i feel like such a newb when these threads roll around :)
great to have you on the board tvlampboy, you truly are an asset to BN
I don't believe so, mike, i think it's one of the "vault" fragrances
but i've got a half a sample vial left I'd be happy to pass along. you want?
OK, so I missed out on NMF day due to a very slow US Postal Service, but due to ComDiva's amazing generosity, I've actually got enough samples to do an entire NMF week, and it's started off with an...
kicking off my Neil Morris Frangrances week (courtesy of gracious ComDiva!) with:
look out for my very own NMF thread that i'll be adding to all week to hear more about this dark 'n'...
Acqua Di Parma Colonia
Maître Parfumeur et Gantier
Thanks for the nice apology Luis
awesome, scent twins!
wearing from my newly arrived bottle of Bois D'iris (by The Different Company) too.
Why am I picturing all of you looking like Farrah Fawcett?
Blindfolded, using only my senses of touch and sound
Creed Selection Verte
is all that really the name of just one bottle, Mike? :p
HE STARTED IT!
DustB, it's like you didn't even post in the thread....
give it time, hanging around here at BN will drive you to "camp a" before you know it :)
I'm firmly A Camp
interesting. great bottle for sure. thanks for sharing Griff, you've truly raised the standard for fragranceporn around here
what's the odd looking greyish-black bottle/flask in the bottom right hand corner of this picture?
MONTALE BLACK AOUD
Damn I Smell Good!
which goes under and which goes over? :grin:
me? i hate splash because it stresses me out that i'm wasting good frag, and wind up worrying about having it roll down my forearm and drip on the...
yeah, my recc is Black Aoud as well.
it's SO GOOD!
Cool, autumnal weather today, so took the opportunity to break out the
Hermès Un Jardin en Méditerranée
so so nice, always forget how much I love this one
Today I'm wearing my newly arrived Sel de Vetiver and HOLY WHOAH is it all that and a bag of chips. Vibert's reference point of single malt scotch in his review of this frag is strangely apt. A...
yes and yes, haven't tried the Frederic Malle, but it's probably next on my list
today I'm sampling
Bond No 9 Chinatown
WOW, not knowing what to expect with this, it's really knocked my socks off. Excellent!!
Went and played two softball games in this glorious weather today, sweated a bunch, came home, showered and applied my sample of
CBIHP Black March
really loving it. it makes me think of lots...
great pics and NICE COLLECTION. not knowing womens' fragrances, pardon my ingorance... but what are the bottles with the glass butterflies on the top? those are GREAT! :)
MPG Jardin du Nil
by L'Artisan Parfumeur
Sounds like a fragrant extravaganza of a holiday! Enjoy your treats and may they always remind you of your nice trip to Italy...
Wearing this today and OH MY GOD I LOVE IT!
think I'm gonna be on a bottle hunt soon. to expand on my SOTD post:
A bit like if Eau Sauvage and AdP Colonia had a roll in a grassy flowerbed while...
Maître Parfumeur et Gantier Fraîche Badiane
man i love this stuff. tvlampboy included a NICE decant of it as an extra to another purchase, and I *LOVE* it. it might be bottle worthy for me. A bit...
first wearing from my bottle of
Acqua di Parma Colonia
i own the EdP version as well. I tried both several times before buying, and to me there's no question, the EdP is definitely the one to own.
Feeling refined and gentlemanly in my
Selection Verte, Neroli Sauvage, Virgin Island Water, Original Vetiver
at any given time i'd say any one of the 4 is my favorite
Vetiver and amber. Not much going on here, but it's a nice combination/quality use of both - and the high grade of each ingredient is very apparent. (from a sample)
debating, but man that's a decent bottle of something right there
Best sandalwood I've tried, hands down. Nice review as always Mike!
Didn't realize you were a DJ too, we really are Wonder Twins lol
Diptyque Eau Lente, first time wearing (Thanks Deb!)
Beautiful, spicy, cinnamony and rich. Reminds me in some ways of M7. Great way to enjoy this rainy, grey morning in SoFla
LOL @ this thread
i'm LOLing over here
Yuzu Ab Irato
Eau de Toilette
I love both, but prefer Mediterrenee over Nil
Mediterrenee is simply amazing. It's got this warmth, richness and craftmanship to it that really sold me on Ellena. Now I'm a big fan, but that was...
just as a hint to everyone... if you want to post images, you'll want to save them locally and post them to something like a free picturetrail or imageshack account, your own webspace, etc for use....
Paul, are you trying to say he blü it?
CB I Hate Perfume Burning Leaves
with a decant atomizer of Tangerine Vert in my pocket to offset the rumored short-lived nature of BL, should the need arise.
Wearing it less frequently, just because this was my "signature" summer scent. But still love it. It is so much more than "Pina Colada" on my skin. In fact, the lime and the rum really stick out for...
it's like the opposite of those old Secret commercials
"Rose31 Eau de Parfum, Strong enough for a woman, but made for a man!"
Pretty sure my next one will be No88
As it's been on my "to buy" list for a long while.
I need another bottle like I need another hole in my head, but.....
What if you layer it with Calvin Klein....
Just don't spray Demeter Mojito (or any boozy scents) in your Jeep, could find you walking the line (or however they test for DUI these days)
I actually think something clean and bright would work...
They shortened it from the originally slated "Yuchumpe"
RICH PEOPLE DON"T DO NO LAUNDRY!
sampling Jo Malone's Pomegranate Noir today
i'd say this thread has gotten way HOFF-TOPIC!
and it's makin me hott! LOL
wow, yepyep sure brought the mood down in this thread by about 10 notches
and i think it's hilarious that you don't
to each their own. pluran makes some very good points in this thread, actually
LOL I'll certainly share wonder twin powers...
It's just funny that I actually was in the sale forum, and said 'man that's a good deal on another Diptyque", sent her a PM about buying, and then...
funny, i just wound up buying Eau Lente from another thread in the sale forum
I own BA, have tested RA from a sample. I think they are similar, but can find unique character to each. However, it would probably be somewhat redundant to own both unless you really love Aouds and...
1) Yeah, I bought BA, still intend to buy No88, but it didn't have the same OHMYGODGOTTAHAVEIT as BA did for me.
2) What Vibert said... not enough difference. I think I got my BA for quite close...
No, yes, yes
Usually I like SA's even if they're not knowledgable, because (as Michael points out) they're good at giving samples. Recently I asked "innocently" at Saks if they carried Creed...
Delrae Bois de Paradis - from a sample from Michael (sloan_8013) he sent me a while back...
I tried it once before, didn't make a lot of impression, but hadn't used much of the sample, so that may...
awesome review Mike, you'll have me at the Saks (at mall adjacent to work) tomorrow trying it on for size.
Vetiver and Sandalo. Own the first, looking longingly at the second
Acqua di Parma
I think it's a terrific scent. Does tend to fit a more "Mature" nose, but that has little to do with age, more to do with your personal style.
Try searching on the forum a bit, there have been...
Wow, sound a little bitter. What makes this "whimisical half-baked" fart so anemic? (ie I haven't heard anything about the pyramid for Amalfi Flowers)
Anyone care to elaborate?
Will do, thanks ComDiva!
Posted over there - need a suggestion...
Coral maybe? i'm kinda looking at Zephyr, but thinking it may be too sweet and flowery with the lily and honeysuckle
ok mike recruited me, and i'm definitely game here... but i haven't had a chance to do any investigation on Neil's site.
any suggestions for little ol' hot weather me? tend to shy away from too...
Maître Parfumeur et Gantier Jardin du Nil
Man this is some potent stuff, but I love it.
edit: Happy Birthday, guys!!
