Varvatos Vintage much to my wife's delight.
This is not VIP? It came in a black bottle.
Bleu de Chanel EDP
Ok, here's the latest at TJ Maxx:
Tom Ford Noir EDP $99
Givenchy Play Intense Gift Set $59
Paco Rabanne Men's Mini Set (invictus, one millions, black) $49
Happy Thanksgiiving to all!!! I went with the unconventional (for me) Chanel Allure Homme Sport. I felt like a fresh scent this year. Considered JV Vintage and Cuiron, but wanted a fresh one.
Guerlain L'Homme Ideal
KL Homme by Lagerfeld
That's pretty much where I came down. Good scent, could smell the quality ingredients, but it was not a good fit for me. Did not help that it really disappeared to my own nose very quickly. My wife...
Yes it is. Very light, but extremely pleasant. Maybe my favorite vetiver along with Creed OV. And I don't like vetiver.
I shave every other day. Pretty light beard. I use Gillette Fusion Power. I will use the same cartridge for 2 months at a time. I guess that's pretty good? I wish I always remembered to dry it after...
YSL L'Homme would be an excellent choice.
Happy Birthday! Enjoy it in good health!
Galloway is a very nice scent that got me compliments. Kind of a cross between GIT and SMW.
Congratulations. Funnily enough, I've never owned any from Clive. I have owned many an expensive scent (Creeds, Bonds, Amouage, IB, etc), but never a Clive Christian. Please update with your...
I feel the same way wearing my Patou Pour Homme today. It would flop at Macy's in today's world. So would Fougere Royal. But to the MATURE INITIATED....
Yep. I'm 48 and I love it.
Is he into that?
It's a very good scent, but you'll live just fine without it! Don't sweat it, bro.
Patou Pour Homme 2013 (a happy little blend of JHL, Richard James and YSL Pour Homme original). Better than I expected.
Now that's carnal dementia!
Yep. Great for cold weather.
My hero! Gotta love it when a guy takes care of his family! Hope I can do the same for my future grandkids. Great example, homey.
Patou Pour Homme 2013. Very nice warm spicy scent. Welcome to the wardrobe.
SOTE: Patou Pour Homme 2013. Yummy stuff, fellas! Manly stuff. It's more like JHL for the next generation.
Finally, I own this reissue. I really dig it! It is very of the eighties. It does remind me of a Lauder creation, to my nose it is a fit in the line up with the Aramis Gentlemens Collection. Slots...
Dior has made it an art form. I do like the Creed geyser, though.
I need to explore my Scottish heritage as Williamson is my last name. Might explain my fascination with all things British.
Hope it exceeds your expectations! And gifts always add a bit of sentimental sheen to the scent itself. I like the Houbigant Royal EDP.
My Patou Pour Homme (2013) should be waiting on me when I...
Every compliment I've recorded on here is the straight truth. Several were for Aventus. Several for GIT. They're my all-time leaders. Kouros and TDH are distant followers.
What exactly would be...
Bentley. And it lasts longer than CDG2 Man. That said, 2 Man smells better/awesome for the 30 minutes when I can actually smell it. But the stay is too brief.
Bentley will at least last a while,...
Ambre and Santal by L'Occitane. It's almost like a much more refined take on Givenchy Pi.
Bleu de Chanel EDP
Tons of these gift sets are popping up at TJ Maxx/Ross, etc. at the moment. They have to be passed along from the department stores and manufacturers. Most are phased out from stores. CK Reveal and...
Wore Penhaligons Sartorial EDT and deodorant to a wedding today. Youngsters have odd receptions these days...lotsa skits and beer. Not my scene. Wife and I ducked out for a nice steak dinner, we were...
Look for Ambre and Santal by L'Occitane at Ross. Niche quality in my opinion. Great winter scent for us southerners.
That's all that matters.
No judging from me! I took my wife and my two teenage sons to theFrozen musical at DW this summer...and I like warm hugs just like Olaf.
Lol, you're killing me, in a good way! Great laughs in this thread.
Let it go.
Got a bottle in a swap today. It is so good.
Good, not great. No tears or lost sleep...or "carnal dementia" (which would make a great album title for Muse or Van Halen).
For me, I'd rather have Sauvage than Rive Gauche, but I keep RG because my wife LOVES it. Sauvage is a more modern scent, and I enjoyed it over RG.
Thanks! At this moment, what I am expecting is something that is akin to original YSL Homme (red cap/gold juice), a little lemony with some astringent, herbal qualities. I'd like it to have a little...
It is, so I'm not really that concerned about faithfulness to the original, which I doubt I have ever smelled. Although, I might have at a department store in Huntington, WV called Stone and Thomas...
MFK Pluriel Masculin. LOVE the smell of this stuff.
There is no accounting for taste.
Fair enough...it FEELS like years.
It may suck, it may rock, we shall see!
I'm sticking with Pluriel, but you cats enjoy! I gave it a fair shot.
Thanks for the kind words, men!
I am very selective seasonally and situationally. These two defy both conventions. Wear them anytime, anywhere.
It smells very classy and low-key. Great with a suit. Old-school in the best possible way.
I think it comes down to whether one likes vetiver and "E".
Reveal is the most potent CK has released in years. I also enjoy the smell of men's Euphoria, but especially the lady's version on my wife this time of year. Smells like a Bond!
Love that dude! My family are all Sherlock nuts!
I have really slowed down as of late, but found a deal I could not pass up on a scent I've been waiting two years to pick up: Patou Pour Homme reissue (2013) for $128 shipped off of eBay. I had a...
Thanks! I had a sudden small windfall and took the plunge...found a new bottle for $128 shipped from an eBay vendor with 100% positive feedback. I've been wanting this for years. Hope it works out!
I agree there is a balance between for ourselves and for others. I also don't wear ONLY what my wife likes on me...nor do I wear what she hates! The best case is when we both love something, which is...
Is that a young Benedict?
I've owned it several times. Never made peace with it and found it a difficult wear. My wife really liked it on me. She is a big vetiver fan (on me)...alas, I am not. I sold it off each time,...
Guerlain L'Homme Ideal EDT
I am one of the few who actually love the original EDT. Definitely not many of us. Probably need to check this one out.
...or does one have to attach it like with a new Serge Lutens 1.7 OZ bottle? Just curious.
I didn't buy anything, but I looked really hard!
You guys better keep your eyes open...new stock is coming in:
D&G Light Blue PH
L'Occitane Ambre and Santal
Polo Blue Sport
CK Dark Obsession
CK Reveal Men Set
You guys have much more discerning noses than I!
I think this cologne is just OK, but it's one of my wife's faves on me.
Prada Amber Pour Homme Intense
My Ross has Ambre Santal at the moment. Is it unisex?
IB is a little staid and stuffy to me. I agree it reeks of quality.
Penhaligons Endymion from a sample. Great smell...weak as a kitten.
I've had to set them straight. Cologne can always go ground.
A lot of people have mentioned Rive Gauche...I have really cooled on that one. For some reason I'm just not that fond of it anymore. Wife loves it though, so I'll hold on to it. RG is basically a...
Dior Homme Cologne '14, Bleu de Chanel Parfum and TDH EDT from my current wardrobe. No-brainer, easy grab scents. Funnily enough, the Dior Homme Cologne smells the strongest to my own nose.
You...you're such a poet! Good work!
As has already been suggested...go with Curve and Cool Water purchased at TJ Maxx/Ross/Burlington. These are the two best bang for your buck options. A man who rotated these two would always smell...
It smells very nice, but it is extremely weak. Year around.
I wish I had kept Noir de Noir...dead ringer for Perry Ellis Woman original.
I wore this today from a sample. I LOVE the way it smells, but "POOF" and it's gone. That's too bad. Outstanding first spray scent. No way I'd lay out big cash.
Commes de Garcons 2 Man. Great smell, but weak IMHO.
I wore three sprays of Bond SOPFH this morning and it has been tenacious. Almost TOO tenacious. Hope I did not gag people this AM.
Ralph Lauren Polo
MFK Pluriel Masculin
For Fathers is a very nice scent. I believe the basil dominates.
Bond No. 9 Scent of Peace for Him
Hang in there, bro.
Try maybe one or two sprays of one of the Bvlgari scents. They wear very close and don't project much. They mostly just smell very clean. I've been in a similar situation at my church, and I've...
On the flip side, try M7 on the 4th of July. Probably not a good idea.
Burberry London for Men. Loving it on a cool day. Very comforting scent.
Creed Royal Oud
Actually, "Homme" is French for "Homey". Hope this helps...LOL!
I wore that yesterday. My wife loves it, but I'm just so-so about it. Kinda feels like I'm wearing Brut.
Yep. Give me the EDP. I get to enjoy it more. I can't smell the EDT for very long, though my wife can.
Yeah, I'd def put them a notch under Dior and Chanel. Just my two cents. Better than Boss and about on par with YSL.
Yep. Just Dress Code. I do LIKE Profumo, though.
I've owned almost all of them at one point or another. I no longer own any. I will say that the original Eau de Cartier is a great smelling scent. They just leave me little cold in the end, kind of...
