I don't know if they "defined" that decade but those are my favorites :
- Tauer Incense Rose
- Slumberhouse Ore
- Tauer Incense extreme
- Serge Lutens Un bois vanille
- L'air du desert...
Boom! Just pulled the trigger on an 3.3 ml of this. Let's see how this goes.
Cool thanks. I think i'm gonna go for the 3.3 sample of blackbird. But it's the price of the 60 ml that pains me if i happen to like it , that's why i don't wanna dive in deeply lol.
Devotion. That's what their manager recommended in an email chat with him while i was inquiring about shipping. He said it's his favorite from the line and a must for incense lovers.
I wanna explore this house, but too pricey ! I've been told they have an incense scent that takes 24 hours to develop ???
Sure lpp, i'll play along : Slumberhouse Ore. Period.
Yes, Bleu Chanel..
- You also need to check Bvlgari Aqva. It definitely gives that blue aquatic feeling. I usually wear it very lightly whenever I have a beach day (swimming).
- Another one to...
Going "dark" all the way for the evening :
Jeke extrait on right hand and a big dose of Serge Noire on left hand and wrist....
A woody fragrance released in mid July....mmm...
Wondering what else is in the notes.

You won't be disappointed. Beautiful scent and very complex as well. It ticks all the boxes for me and satisfies all my olfactory cravings when i wear it.
Thanks for the description Hackerx. I'm starting to kinda see images of the drydown of Serge Noire (not the opening) from the descriptions in this thread, with some added whiskey and somali incense....
Ah I see. I was looking at Fragrantica description, that's why I missed it then.
Interesting, Thanks Rynegne.
If i love the fragrance, i always aim for the bigger size.
If 100 ml is not an option ( like Tauer), then i aim for 50 ml.
So the smoke in this is a bonfire smoke or is it a burning incense smoke ?
I need to know before i order a 5ml sample :undecided:...
It's a great scent for the price, but i got bored of it and i don't reach for it often like i used to.
Still keeping it in case the enthusiasm comes back in the future.
Bleu de chanel for sure.
Black Aoud is not my favorite from Montale
Very close, expect essenza takes the slightly "acidic" sharp aspects of the original and smoothes them out with some soft woods and sweet musk in the base.
I find the essenza much more...
It's fine on me. Around 6 hours. The florals in it bloom in the heat.
You need to sample ADG essenza as well. Best of the bunch in my opinion.
1- Acqua Di Gio
2- Mugler Cologne (it's not an aquatic)
3- Bvlgari Aqva
4- Allure Sport (It's not an aquatic)
5- Bvlgari Aqva Marine
Squeezed the last drop of my Incense Rose 2ml sample.
This tops everything i have tried from Tauer so far. LDDM is a shadow besides it in my opinion and in my personal preferences ( i do own LDDM...

This interview was done in september 2013 and the six upcoming scents mentioned in it are most likely the newly released so called middle east exclusives.
I have no idea (nor i want to have one,...
From a conversation with indiescents owner, i understood that indiescents will have the last remaining current stock left. After that they won't be carrying SSS anymore because the latter decided to...
I can see that happening.
Off topic though: This one turned out to be a big compliment getter for me.
Tauer Incense Rose
I'm planning to wear some generous doses of Narciso Rodriguez musc for him next week. Not for any specific or religious reason whatsoever, but just because I haven't worn it for a while and I feel it...
It lasts forever too, on par with Slumberhouse potency. 2 sprays is all you need.
Incense Pure is sappy airy incense. It's never tiring and very original : Imagine the raw frankincense resins flying around you while taking a walk in a forest. Labdanum and sandalwood also very...
I only tried Incense Pure, Tabac Aurea and Fig tree.
- Loved incense pure
- Liked fig tree
- Disliked Tabac Aurea
Yes that's true, but he's a also a good friend of mine. We hang out all the time.
I despise the powdery smell of violet. I find it very "meh" with no identity or personality whatsoever.
Violet leaf is a different story for me. Can't get enough of it.
Dior Homme series sprayers are fantastic.
Also ADG essenza.
Aha, it's totally the opposite of what i thought. I'll take my beloved 24 gold out of the equation then !
Will get back to you on that one. Can't think of any right now.
I don't know how high the $ bar is in your definition of cheapos , but the first one that comes to mind (if not the only) is : 24 Gold
Yesterday my barber complimented me and said my scent smells similar to Kouros. I told him no, it's the new Valentino Uomo.
But then i don't blame him, he wears Kouros as his signature scent so...
Kenzo pour homme is fir dominated to my nose with some lovely sandalwood and salty "sea" notes added to the mix.
It dries down to a beautiful semi sweet comforting bed of vetiver and with a hint...
Sonoma Scent Studios
In my opinion, Narciso Rodriguez musc ranks miles above the rest of the bunch you acquired. One of my favorites scents of all time.
Tabac Original : Bergamot/lemon coated aldehydes with a vanilla background.
This scent recreates the perfect creamy lemon vibe for me .
Pure Malt Creation 2013
I'm not a collector either. I narrowed down my wardrobe to around 48 scents that feature accords/combos of my favorite notes.
Whatever I add in the future (and I constantly do) is for the passion...

Between $1 and $7(sometimes even more).
Depends on the channel's popularity and consistency in releasing as many "popular" daily videos as possible.

24 Gold Oud Edition
I'm not a Montale expert, Hednic and Vinramini09 are :)
It was Vinramini09 who compared it to Dior homme and i can see a slight resemblance yes.
To be honest, i find Aoud & Pine to be unlike...
Aoud & pine hands down. No contest.
Angel Schlesser Oriental Edition 2
Youtube has been making it very hard (it started earlier this year) on popular but not popular enough channels to get paid decent money on clicks. It's not what it used to be 2 years ago. I don't...
I would wear GIT in this situation.
Designer : Fahrenheit
Niche : Tauer Incense extreme
Underrated : Tom Ford Noir edp (not noir de noir)
Love both Fahrenheit and Dior Homme Intense equally.
In your case, i would get Fahrenheit at the moment and aim for Dior Homme Intense later on.
Memoir turned too "sour" and animalic on my skin. Got better in the drydown but still didn't like it.
I might be in the minority, but I'm yet to find an Amouage that is bottle...
- Terre D'hermes : Great for winter in my opinion, especially for someone who is careful like you
- The new Valentino Uomo : Test it first
- Pure Malt
And more power to you :)
I remember this being extremely strong when i tried it.
I got a compliment on Saturday while wearing Bois D'encens.
What ????? Yeaaaah i'll take it :)
The mandarins were too much on my skin in the original Gentlemen only. It seems this one took care of the balance. Will try it this week.
Armani Code Sport Athlete
Yup, it's such a unique beauty and happens to be a compliment getter as well.
Still in my top 5 after all this time.
@Neal : As hednic mentioned, if you're into the notes, you can't go wrong...
Thank you. Yes that Norma Kamali I've been eyeing to try for a while now. Will order a sample soon.
They're indeed different, but the "I'm a skin scent" attitude of Play intense pisses me off.
Pure Malt's projection is fantastic.
mmmm...Well i'm a jazz-fusion songwriter/pianist/keyboardist and i have to be honest. I never ever associated perfumes with my music whatsoever.
The fact that i have to think hard before...
Tauer Incense Extreme
After my 2ml sample was finished, i simply could not get this scent out of my head.
Finally bought a bottle.
Al Arousa : locally blended Frankincense & amber Eau de parfum.
Don't like it.
Sent from Galaxy Note 3
5+ sprays at least for me from my bottle
I own fille en Aiguilles but i prefer Ambre Sultan over it.
The reason why i didn't buy Ambre Sultan later on is because i bought the irresistible L'air Du Desert Marocain.
