Edition Blanche would gettign boring after a while. Platinum Egoiste has much more character and it smells terrific.
Katie looks so beautiful, almost child like face :) and her reviews are anything but passionate. thanks for this wonderful article!
final verdict - it's a classic. never has a scent came across as balanced and composed as this one. considering it plays with lotta heavy accords.
hands down black oud. it's the undisputed king.
for the 20 ml, try their Blue Amber...another cult classic from their non oudh line.
+3 on Unbound.
theres one more that i liekd very much..but my memory fails me..
Tobacco... hmmm Miller Harris Feuilles de Tabac and Xerjoff's Oroville has to be the scents that paint my olfactory image of tobacco. however...i dotn think i have come across a scent which adds a...
im glad to see so many perfumes houses interpretating this note. about time.
...yes, i do cheat more than often.
isnt it the same which is orange blossom/jasmine powerhouse...? i think it smells quite intensely feminine.. if you are like most here who don't care a damn about whether a scent smells feminine or...
returned after ages...not much has changed :)
alas...someone mentions alamut!! count me in as a villoresi fanboy.. one will notice a common theme in this thread..which is, his unique style.
yerbamate is dreamy.. incensi and uomo are...
i don't see any connection between lddm and other scents mentioned in this thread (L'Homme Divine??)
to OP - Zegna Forte and Lacroix Absynthe Homme - never got a chance to sample these....
Different Company Bois de Iris
Serge Lutens Serge Noire
Cartier Santos Eau de Sport
Guerlain Heritage Eau de Parfum & Bois de Armenie
Parfumerie Generale Intrigrant Patchouli
i'm glad someone mentioned this one.. it's such a fab scent. the closest i got to in terms of feel is Agua de Loewe by Loewe.
i agree with your assessment.. i get similar vibes. similar accords can be experienced in Havana reserva.
then again...its is all about perceptions..how and what you refer to as tobacco or...
i choose my scent based on what i wear or viz. with that in mind, i pretty much go with anything in my wardrobe. no such rule. perfumes are supposed to smell nice..
i don't think you'll like it. there is "a" note in it, which is a hit or miss. it's nothing like Knize Ten or a Heeley Fine Leather.. the closest comparison and that too by a mile would be Tauers...
i get it! you love ur in-laws :P
Top 5 "makes me feel suave/good" scents
1. Lalique White
2. Amoauge Jubilation XXV
3. Guerlain Bois d'Armenie
4. Rochas Lui
5. FCUK Connect Him & Dior Homme
Chanel Allure Homme Edition Blanche
you may want to try Pal Zileri's Sartoriale for tones similar to Encre Noir. for softer versions of guerlain vetiver, you may want to try Mugler Cologne
100ml bottles of Chanel PM and PMC in recent times.. . i have earlier gobbled up a 120 ml bottle of Photo and Lagerfeld Classic ...but i didn't have 50 bottles at that point... maybe 30..
it ends with you finally giving in for a xerjoff and with lot lesser money.
some are vague, i agree. but please do share your thoughts..
rochas man would be right up your alley.
Lemon Cheese cake - Chanel Allure Homme Edition Blanche
Caramel milk shake - Rochas Man
Cocoa powder - A*Men
(dark) Chocolate dessert/pastries - Tom Ford Black orchid
Spearmint chewing gum -...
dimi - ..your a spoiled brat with good taste....in life :)
+++ on Dior Homme
+++ on YSL M7
i always associate it with lava (i haven't been anywhere near a volcano)...it does evoke tht reaction.. but, i love it.. especially cool winter evenings. i mean, common, who doesn't like to cuddle...
holding you to that :)
ELDO - Jasmine et Cigarette
Miller Harris - Feuilles de Tabac
good for intimate moments..
Lagerfeld - Liquid Karl
Le Labo - Vanille 44
it's a very good bad idea.
i get compliments by truckloads when i wear Montale Black Oudh & Tauer's L'Air. im sure i smell good otherwise too :) but those two, i think force a compliment and makes people inquire as to what it...
Ck Obsession Night
Dior Homme Intense
Dimi, your blog is absolute goldmine. love going through it.. love some of the features you have added..
aqua di gio and cool water hasnt lost it's lustre as yet. but mostly from the armani, versace & boss line
oh me like it very much thank you. elegant indeed.
do you see the creed smw dipped in oudh comparison...?
secretions magnifique, Hanae Mori H.m.
the best violet, a violet i can wear is - Eau de Italie Sienne d'hiver
I have -
Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille - i simply adore it's prunes, sticky dates, vanille opening, with warm undertones of tobacco and amber. i agree with reviews which states it's mids to base smells...
keep it coming!
it's good. but gucci ph is much much much better.
jovan sex appeal.
Montale Oudh Lime
mugler hands down.. but, essential is no pushover.
ohh, cant get tougher than this. i like both! incense extreme packs in a punch and is very direct but, avignon has much more character imho... so, for me, avingon would tip incense extreme but just...
neither... i dont like these kinda fragrances i guess.. not that i dont like gourmands.. but, not like these..
on a side note...i can see the fizziness in Jean Claude Ellena creations...like there are some parallels one can draw between Poivre Samarcande, Un Jardin sur le nil and Molecule 1
cute question.. i'd choose the robot dance application method from step up 3 - http://youtu.be/8VTW1iUn3Bg
we are one annoying lot...
love querelle :)
ok, ill play..of the ones i have, which are
Querelle - excellent sillage and longevity 8-10 hours.
Cuir D'Iris - good sillage and longevity 8-10 hours.
L'Ombre Fuave -...
Capucci - R de Capucci
Carthusia - Numero Uno
Moschino Freinds has an accord which i find in secretions magnifique too..
hmm..i felt it was gritty...but i sampled it only once in a mall.. will sample it again...
talking about baby powder...you need to try burberry touch :)
+1 you'll fall in love with your skin :)
you have selected some classics you can go wrong with them.
Montale Black Oudh
Hermessense Poivre Samarcande
Ormond Jayne - Ormond Man
i wouldnt sweat too much over it. but, if you get it, great. it's slightly lighter and most importantly, greener version of the original.
try contacting xmen on BN.. he may have it.
alfarom gave a nice analogy "salt in cake". i had similar query on ISO E, and in that thread Indie Guy gave a beautiful explanation... and what they essentially tried to say is, some folks may feel...
Mike - glad to see you liked Sandalo ! i just didn't expect such a realistic accord coming from Villoresi.
off topic, Villoresi Alamut too is a hidden gem.
to OP - Amen.
Cariter, Chanel, Guerlain, YSL, Lalique, Hermes are some of the names tht pop in mind.
most number of sprays comes from Chanel Pour Monsieur...till i get my olfactory orgasm; nothign to do with the strength
the scent tht that i love and is probably nearing finish line- Montale Black...
reviews. matter of fact, the first 6-7 months, i was never into forums, coz im not on any other forum per se, not used to this format of bonding over internet...then the reviews section was down for...
true.. one has to like sweeter orientals to appreciate PG fragrances. i crave for it.
echoing wht others have already said...
new harlem smells better than rochas man..
Amouage Jubilation XXV & Lyric Man
Guerlain Bois d'incens
the entire luciano soprani line is kinda underrated..
Azzaro Pour Homme
i once saw a cavalli silk dress..which was nothing more than a scarf for a price tag of $4000.... beauty is in the eye of the beholder
yuo guys smell wonderful :)
me: Chanel Egoiste Concentree
now i am confused whether i had sampled Uomo or Numero Uno.. :(
if i remember it correctly, it smells of very intense lime peels and woods.. it sorta reminded me of an intense, gritty version of PDN NY or a YSL Jazz (they don't smell alike, just a...
very thoughtful review.. you seem to be a natural at reviews..
you may want to sample:
Domenico Caraceni 1913 (rose, tobacco, geranium)
Serge Lutens Gris Clair (lavendar)
John Varvatos Artisan Black
isit similar to Lutens 5'o clock Gingermbre?
you are hilarious buddy :)
you win, cant beat that.
was here to say this.
however, it's not XXV. there is no exact match... XXV is that good.
Frapin Caravelle Epicee
didnt get a chance to sample Un Crime Exotique; however, have scents such as Lombre Fuave, Cuir d'iris, Querelle & Bois blond from the private collection.. and, when i look at them (or wear them);...
of the ones i have sampled, cartier roadster.
black oudh. period. have you worn it as your sotd? have you experienced it's creamy/rosy mids to drydown... cant beat that..
lol, nice one. however...i like it :(
note, i said drydown :) i could imagine how top to mid notes may not go well with many. spice overload...
with regards to your preferences for "true-to-life, natural and linear" sandalwood, i...
its such a unique fragrance...more than a perfume if i were to be poetic.. whenever i wear it, i forget i'm wearing a "perfume"...
nice reviews Mike!
just don't agree with the santal de mysore and Santal Noble reviews (but you already knew it was coming :)... Santal de Mysore has a lovely drydown which smells extremely rich...
puma has some good releases...
i don't feel theres a single bottle available out there which isnt turned..
i love all three.. pressed to choose one, Ormond Man (i lean towards heavier fragrances)
smells of amber, rose, cedar, vanilla.
i always felt L'Air carried the same structure as Guerlain's Heritage EDP.
you smell good kind sir.
of the two SDV. Lartisan's Vanille smells much better than UbV.
Serge Lutens Gris Clair
