Great, so pleased you'r appreciating this fragrance, enjoy it.
Aramis Havana, Arabian Oud Gentleman Secret, Heliotrope Etro, Vetiver Guerlain, Capucci Classic Pour Homme, Casamorati Fiero etc.
Absolutely agree about the "melancholic mood". I'm lucky to own a full bottle of this great great fragrance. Extremely virile, assertive, classy, "silent".
Santi Burgas Lojazz is probably the most convincing piece included in the Loant's collection. A supremely floral accord of neroli, I suppose tuberose (not listed), oily sambac jasmine...
Ahhhhhhh, I know how you feel, have the same problem.
Yes, Dsquared He Wood as ideally combined with the classic Lancome Trophee (or in part Trussardi Action Uomo and MY Land), Basile Uomo and Canali for Men. Cale' Fragranze d'Autore Roboris is...
Opus 1144 (assumedly the Gothic one) is paradoxically the most modern (and bright) among the Unum's compositions which are taking the world by storm by now on Basenotes. Actually, in spite of its...
Yes, I have both the versions and the 2014's one is outstanding too imo.
Thank you so much dear.
After such accurate and passionate reviews previously appointed by my two talented friends (and highly generous master-reviewers) Alfarom and Colin Maillard is not properly easy to add further...
I'm sorry but I absolutely don't detect any similarity between the typically liturgical Loence and the spicy/leathery/oriental Sahara Noir. Where is the (typical in Sahara Noir) burnt sugar/spicy...
Exactly Francesco, is just not our ideal genre but agree with you (excellent reviews from you and Colin Maillard, as usual, just I catch the rose which is not typically leafy-lymphatic-earthy but...
Unum Rosa Nigra represents my first approach with this new "dodgy" (not for the Basenoters of course) italian niche brand and I welcome its aroma as a quite sophisticated take on the...
I'm gradually realizing that is really important to "play" the game of the "alchemical" associations between the singular scents of the Loant Collection (which taken singularly could turn out overly...
Santi Burgas Lorose is another minimalist floral accord rich in vegetal musky subtleness and partially synthetic (as usual for all the "pieces" of this SB's series it seems to experience a...
Hy Lynn, I love heliotrope too, actually I've never tested something matching the Etro's one in quality.
Futuristic and minimalist combination of elements preserving throughout a sort of "industrial laboratory vibe" . There is actually all around the wearer a "vitreous" typical "chemical...
Loant (as elsewhere well specified) is ideated to be the heart of the LOANT collection, a juice to be used separately (as an accomplished ambery-musky-floral fragrance) or combined with other...
Well, two giants, both possess an almost balsamic turpentinic vibe but while Loence is more on the boise-musky resins and woods (morphing finally in to something musky, "soothed", almost suede...
Thank you guys,
Loence is an otherworldly composition, its vorticose depth masters over almost the totality of the incensey compositions I've experienced on skin, Santi Burgas means research,...
Without doubts Sel de Vetiver which is a far better fragrance.
Lôtree by Santi Burgas
Amazing minimalist (more than vaguely a la Wonderwood Comme des Garcons in style) musky combination of fresh fluidy bamboo and woods (high quality cedarwood, agarwood and...
Lôence by Santi Burgas
If you are on the earthy-boise and realistically sacramental resins there is no stuff matching this juice around guys. Santi Burgas Loence is a majestic vegetal woody-incensey...
Welcome and good work here on Basenotes Mustafa911.
For instance Aramis Havana, Aramis, Gianfranco Ferre for Man, Battistoni Marte, Romeo Gigli by Romeo Gigli.
Still Aramis Havana, Acqua di Cuba by Santa Maria Novella, Cigar by Remy Latour, Gentleman Secret by Arabian Oud, Czeck&Speak Cuba and yes even the Guerlain Vetiver exotic tonka.
P.S: would be...
I've tested today on skin (neaby the London Oxford Street Arabian Oud Boutique) Gentleman Secret, one of the most recent releases from this brand, a fantastic freshly exotic musky accord of cardamom,...
DH P is the one of the DH line I by far prefer and it is far superior than Spicebomb imo.
Reflection Man - Amouage 4,5
Aventus - Creed 6,5
The One for Men - Dolce & Gabbana 6
Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme - Chanel 5
Sculpture Homme - Nikos 7
Pour Homme - Versace 5,5
La Nuit de...
Thank you so much Gianluca, amazing reviews as usual.
An amazing brand, Cuir Ottoman, Eau de Glorie, Musk Tonkin, Wazamba and Corsica Furiosa are at top imo.
Hi, I appreciate a lot the Paolo Terenzi's engagement in perfumery, so looking forward to try this one too.
This is seriously one of the best scents ever.
Valentino Uomo Edition Noir follows the Dior Homme Intense/L'Instant de Guerlain's trend (in particular the LIDGE's nutty, chocolatey, freshly cedary twist, but also the Dior Homme Parfum's...
I've tested today Edition Noir, it seems almost identical (just vaguely soapier) to Valentino Uomo, probably bergamot and myrtle oil seem to utterly darken the juice but the dry down (cedary and...

Top 3 to wear for herself while top 3 on me:
1) Habit Rouge Guerlain, 2) Costume National Scent Intense, 3) Domenico Caraceni 1913
1) Guerlain Samsara
2) Le Labo Iris 39
3) Thierry Mugler Alien
Of course hednic, thank you Grant, crossed fingers.
My girlfriend will be there for me :-), mission at distance, I hope in a bunch of new samples.
Aramis Havana is on the top (forever).
Still my vintage Habit Rouge Edt imo (with its long run and its diverse nuances).
Great, thank you for sharing cacio.
Yea, really close to it, fantastic fragrance imo.
Fico di Amalfi
Cereria Terenzi (Tiziana Terenzi) candles are excellent for instance.
Really "particular" fragrances I own (or owned in past) are Romeo Gigli by Romeo Gigli on the side of vintage Versace Versus Pour Homme, Kenzo Pour Homme, Bruno Acampora Iranzol, Costume National...
The Mazzolari Nero's opening is by soon a powerful Creed Aventus's flashback. This feel is incredibly apparent, especially because of a stout lemony pineapple/black currant accord but also because of...
Hi dear, no honestly I've never heard of it. :-)
So many, at moment I say first of all Bellodgia By Caron (pure Heaven), Habit Rouge Guerlain (anyway, especially in its vintage formulation, too much complex to be simply labelled as a vanilla...
P.S: I've a South's sample which have not tested yet (I will do it soon).
I' ve reviewed Id, North, Alfa and Omega yet, nothing groundbreaking but interesting concoctions anyway, Id is the one I've enjoyed more at moment. Look eventually at my reviews.
Great great appreciation for the excellent Giorgio For Men too.
I'm wearing currently Aramis classic (one of my all time favorites) and Aramis Havana, Sometimes I love to wear Gianfranco Ferre For Man, Vintage Ungaro III, Esencia Loewe, vintage Trussardi Uomo,...
Honoured dear, I own two bottles of this amazing fragrance, one of the two is vintage.
A really amazing piece of spicy-leathery luxury. One of my absolute favorite. A superbly complex mossy-leathery vetiver. Congratulations.
Havana, Aramis, Perfume Calligraphy Rose and JHL are my absolute favorite.
Sonoma Scent Studio Fireside Intense is another recommendation.
Cigar Remy Latour, Burberry for Man, Marte Arte Battistoni, Cuba Black by Cuba Paris.
Vintage Habit Rouge EdT at the beginning of the 90's was the best fragrance of the universe.
Thank you so much dear.
Agree, don't get the similarities with Gucci Pour Homme 2 and see how almost unique Nemo is, just could be found several Nemo's nuances (or at least a common "vein") in Amouage Interlude Man and...
Durbano Black Tourmaline, Slumberhouse Norne, Sova and Jeke, yes Bois d'Ascese, Etro Sandalo, Eau d'Italie Bois d'Ombrie, House of Matriarch Blackbird, Athunis Sigilli, Private Label Jovoy, all...
Carven Homme for sure. Another solution is in my humble opinion Very Irresistible for man Givenchy (more powerful, floral and synthetically modern-chic but exuding points in common with Envy which I...
A really particular scent, lucky to have tested it yet.
All good options, for a darker type of vetiver try Mona di Orio Vetyver, Athunis Sigilli, Etro Vetiver, Private Label Jovoy, Gianfranco Ferre for Man, Eau d'Italie Bois d'Ombrie.
Vintage (80-90's) Habit Rouge EdT, licentious baroque decadence.
Ye Olde Civet Cat e Nero Profumo.
Thank you Pluran, great post. Equipage and Bel Ami are enough different of course, I love both but prefer the great Equipage. I recommend you to try one of my favorite fragrance ever, the...
Casamorati Fiero, Ibitira, Kind of Blue, Ivory Route, Birdie, Dama Bianca, Zafar, Modoc, Fiore d'Ulivo and others are more than decently appointed scents of the current market, there is nothing...
Sel de Vetiver.
Try a great cheap magnolia, Magnolia by L'Erbolario.
Lux Patchouli Comme des Garcons.
The Different Company Sel de Vetiver for instance.
For instance Ambre Vie by House of Matriarch, Eau de Gloire by Parfum d'Empire, Fazzolari Lampblack and No Sport by La Parfumerie Moderne.
Gianfranco Ferre for Man.
I've not a (single or complex or whatever) favorite, anyway I think in this moment to Bruno Acampora Blu, Hilde Soliani Bell'Antonio, La Via del Profumo Castoreum, Kenzo Air or Acca Kappa Muschio...
Really great composition as well as Ecstasy, White Fire, Lillipur, Laudano Nero and the other Paolo Terenzi's creations.
For instance Polo Green, Guerlain Veriver, Battistoni Marte (and Marte Arte), Guy Laroche Horizon or Ungaro III.
"Hard" scent to "cope" with.
Gianfranco Ferre for Man, one of the best designer fragrance ever.
Two great great fragrances, there is not a best, Heritage does not smell like Zino (especially the Edt) end is conceptually a really different fragrance than Santos, take your time testing both on...
Unfortunately I've never tryed the Yardley's famous lavender, anyway I see many interesting solutions for the lavender lovers...for instance...Spigo Odori, the lavender from Tonatto, Puig Lavender,...
The same for me.
I've phoned today to Campagna&Caraceni
Campagna & C. S.p.a. Gianni Campagna E Domenico Caraceni Milano
well, a "strange" fellow has told me that at moment Domenico Caraceni 1913 is...
Exactly...anyway in a similar vein but with tobacco we can enjoy (if lucky to find it) Caraceni 1913.
Anyway, I miss many fragrances, one in particular (for affective reasons)....Versus Uomo Gianni Versace.
Caraceni 1913 is not forgotten by me for sure since I've purchased a bottle few days ago :-)
Cause you almost wanna eat, smoke or drink its metropolitan rubber.
I was told to be "the most elegant of the funeral" while wearing the amazing Durbano Black Turmaline :-)
Yes and the most unacceptable thing is that, if you ask them a perfume they don't treat, don't know or don't have anymore in stock, they use to tell you " this perfume is not in production anymore",...
Yes...Olympios and on a certain extent Ferrari Uomo, Canali Men and Narciso Rodriguez for Him.
1) Guerlain Habit Rouge
2) Costume National Scent Intense
3) Aramis Havana
Thank you so much dear.
An "immense" perfume house which presented us immensely temperamental iconic fragrances many of which never miss in my collection (Aramis, Havana and JHL in particular).
Anyway I just can say that Paolo Terenzi (the main performer behind the Tiziana Terenzi creations) is one of the most talented alchemist wizard of the olfactory panorama (and he is a fantastic person...
