Montale Aoud Samarkand
GIT, about 15 years ago. I have a 95% empty GIT in my closet! but I have 99% full bottle I use.
When it's gone, it's gone. I'd move on. This stuff spoils after a while.
My thoughts exactly. Much improved.
Aventus, Rive Gauche or Terre d'Hermes
Eau des Baux for me today.
Yeah, the Parfum is a difficult wear, but it is a unique smell. I could not wear it. It's gone. Still a neat odor unto itself.
Yeah, I wear them 90% for me, 10% for my wife. I have to admit that when she does not notice my SOTD, I'm a wee bit disappointed. But they're primarily for me.
I agree. 3 or 4 sprays is perfect IMHO.
Unfortunately, "according to Chuck" does not count for much, but it's honestly what I perceive. I have owned the silver shoulder/base edition in recent years and I think the newest (white...
I like the smell of Ideal and BDC both. But the scent of Ideal holds up better over the day on my skin. I want to love each of them, I wish both were "beefier" in construction and wore a little...
Love this. Was smitten by it while Christmas chopping. Got it soon after.
Never made peace with Grey Vetiver. Or many vetivers.
BUT....I'm wearing Creed OV ATM and Loving it!
Creed Original Vetiver
The edge for me is that I personally can smell myself better with the EDP. The EDT disappears to my nose very quickly. I hate that.
Same for me. But the 2 and 1/2 sprays I wore today to work seemed a bit much to me. But no negatives. I think 2 sprays would be just right.
That's ok...cool points are for losers anyway. Wear what you like.
Daniel, that could be a fun search. Many here to help you!
When the weather finally turns to the warm side, I may switch these up. But for now, my signature tells the tale.
Party on, Hednic. It's your world, we just spray in it.
In the last 2 days:
Drove past my neighborhood. My son told me I missed it.
Picked up an inkpen. Thought I'd grabbed my cell phone. made it to the back door and realized what I had done.
Box is definitely different, I think the lettering on the bottle has a slightly different font. It may or may not be reformulated...I just know it smells better than what I bought about 2-3 years ago.
[QUOTE=noitsnotme;3481144]My word, as soon as I saw the title, I knew GIT-Fahrenheit-Kouros were coming. :D
Because they're AWESOME!!!
I'm wearing it. Kouros.
I bought the new version at Kohl's yesterday. I'd had a good business day (found a new site for a satellite clinic) and decided a little reward was in order. I went in hoping they still had a bottle,...
Kouros (latest edition). Ahhhhh....familiar and oh so comfy for me...they may have tweaked it back toward the vintage. Sure smells nice.
When I give it a proper wearing, I'll see if that emerges. Our weather has been so cool that I don't think we've had an optimally hot day for it. I'm weird that way. I believe it will shine on a hot...
Thanks, kind sir!
I bought the latest iteration of YSL Kouros at Kohl's today. The clerk said they had just gotten it and Body back in after selling out of the first shipment. Wow. Weird too that Kouros costs $74...
Carolina Herrera CH
I did make a swap, though!!!
Creed Royal Oud. Just awesome.
Puredistance M. Just don't get it. Not that special IMHO.
Love me some Hednic. He is the MAN.
Cartier Pasha Noir
You buy the franchise rights and I'll move out there and run it.
You'd think Beverly Hills would be a natural location for one.
They're both niche. No doubt.
Aventus will get more compliments, but I actually prefer Royal Oud for my own pleasure. Both are great. Enjoy!
In the last 10 years, my most complimented work scent has been Aventus. Prior to that, GIT. I wonder why I favor Creed.
My 47-year-old eyes made your quote look like "Like your fro!". Got a little chuckle.
For a summer pick, the Guerlain Ideal L'Homme I'm wearing today is excellent.
Guerlain L'Homme Ideal
The mind races...
Colognes ARE my medications! Sweet retail and aromatherapy!
Bought nothing this weekend. Weird.
I think we all have a cousin we know who would probably bite. Scents just aren't a priority to most people.
The clove thing makes it a pass for me, but it does have a darn addictive quality. I like to sniff it rather than wear it. Very unique cologne. Nothing quite like it. Great. You have me wanting it...
SOTE: Puredistance M. It really seems like a blend of the vintage versions of Lagerfeld and Bel Ami.
For some reason "M" is a weak skin scent on me. Good thing for my bank account.
If I wore just one spray, I doubt I would even smell it. Maybe Joop, Polo, Mancera Sand Aoud, there aren't many. LDDM possibly.
I got a similar deal for that same product at our Target about three years ago. I also got a 3.4 ADG for $9.98 at a Target in Columbia, SC about 3 months ago. It pays to check. Our store has had no...
First on Belk website, then confirmed on Dior website.
Hey guys, Dior has redesigned their bath products in sleek new packaging. They are promoting this new "bath" line as an everyday experience. Just FYI. I probably won't buy a single item though.
Creed - Royal Oud
Dior for me. But...the Allure line may be more "wearable" year around in warmer climates like mine. Dior Homme Eau is the only one I'd wear down here in August.
It's a very good scent, and very different. Enjoy!
They are a cut-above most mall scents and I believe at least on par with Chanel. Very masculine distinctive scents.
When all was said and done, I kept the EDP and sold the EDT. The current EDT (France or USA) does not measure up for me. I did buy the deodorant stick to compliment the EDP and hopefully enhance the...
Lalique Hommage de L'Homme
Don't know yet.
Unfortunately, SportsFan was right. It did not please me, it lacked a certain richness I remembered. I've since sold it. Lesson learned. The new Bel Ami Vetiver is better.
Easily. I thought about buying it.
Agreed. Great place to clothe a family with decent stuff. We live in the real world, man! (My own Mom just bought me 3 great ties there and sent them to me for Easter! She really know how to pick...
YSL Rive Gauche
PDN NY Intense
TF Italian Cypress
My local Macy's associates are very nice to me. May be because I have been buying consistently from them for the past 10 years. I might be their best customer! I always chat them up and try to be...
I got a 3 pack of samples unsolicited from Bond yesterday (SOPH, High Line and a new fem)...nice free surprise.
Has Creed ever done this? I can't recall if they did this with the Aventus launch.
Funny story (for me anyway, not my poor victims)...I once tested out the whole Lacoste line while standing in my local Kohl's. I did not spray them on, but just in the air. I left a scent cloud that...
I'll probably get flogged for this, but Express men's store has very well cut suits for around $400. Even my tailor was impressed with them. Snobs will not approve, I know. But every time I wear one,...
Yeah, sometimes we just have to "suck it up". It does stink though. Pout for a day or two and move on.
The Parfums de Nicolai New York Intense I'm wearing today is an opulent scent.
Parfums de Nicolai New York Intense. This is the opulent scent that another thread requested. Rich stuff.
Some good deals there, some not so good. It's a mixed bag.
It's a nice scent. Just relax and enjoy it! You did not blow it!
Mine is the AS spray, but it has surprising presence, very similar to the EDT I have owned in the past. Worth the $7.99.
Kohl's has ridiculous prices for cologne. They wanted $70 for Kouros a few weeks back. No way. Best stay away. Now for clothes, I love to catch their blazers/sport coats and dress clothes on...
IMHO, that's a really nasty scent.
My wife was loving my CH by Herrera this morning.
Carolina Herrera CH. My wife loved it this morning.
Don't know yet, it will be anything but a Creed...I've worn them the last 4 days.
It's a very good scent. Enjoy it!
Creed Aventus for Masters round 3. Go Tiger!
Creed Green Irish Tweed for the final round of the Masters! Again, go Tiger!!!
Let's just hope it sticks around.
Bought Halston Man Aftershave Spray in the 4.2 OZ for $7.99 today at Marshall's. Very nice scent.
Halston Man Aftershave Spray 4.2 OZ for $7.99 at Marshall's. Smells nice!
If you have all those, you may not need this. That's my only caveat. It's very nice with an awesome bottle.
You are 100% correct.
The only place I use moisturizer is on my face and the front of my neck where I shave.
I haven't had a true signature scent. I've always liked a variety. I've had a few that come close:
Polo in my late teens
Kouros in my twenties
Green Irish Tweed in my thirties
Aventus in my...
In your case, that makes sense.
I keep mine in a cool, dark closet off my master bath. Best location I've found yet. Very little light in there and it stays cool. I expect they'll have a great lifespan in there, Lord willing.
Nicolai New York Intense. Awesome lasting power. They had to use great ingredients.
Blend Terre d'Hermes with Acqua di Parma. Little Eau Sauvage tossed in. Wow. Winner.
Smells expensive and old school.
