100F in St. Louis, MO USA today. I did Colonia Assoluta.
Agree with Vijay. Quimbaya Pour Homme is the closest match I've found. Good price too. On the other hand, I don't find the slightest resemblence between Incense and Fahrenheit
I have returned opened bottles to Walgreens, Macy's and Saks. In each case, I told the SA that I didn't like them.
In each case the bottle and packaging were perfect, and could be mistaken for...
I need a little guidance as to how to vote in my first Basenotes Awards poll.
How are you arriving at your vote? In the Best Fragrance Overall (for men) catagory for example, are you...
Thanks for the review! Agreed that this is a nice scent. Wood, tobacco and incense to my nose. On me this stuff is potent and long-lasting.
I'm a big fan of L'Occitane Vetyver as well. Both are...
Some of my daytime faves:
L'Eau par Kenzo pour Homme
Also check out the Awards to see what Basenotes are voting for as Best Fragrance for...
I am not well-informed regarding feminine scents, but all of the above will be generously stocked with feminine scents as well. Each of the department stores mentioned have several large...
I received mine today in generous glass vials with atomizers. Haven't tried them yet as I need a shower after raking leaves all AM. :mad: I am sure they were worth the wait.
I'm writing to request a sample. I'll let you guys know how it is. :D
Saw the "Puissance" thing in the Burr column as well. Someone fill us in?
Malkovich Malkovich By John Malkovich
Thanks for the write-up. I will have to remember not to decline the new Kenneth Cole. Too bad about the Double Black though. I was looking forward to trying it. :(
I love Burberry London as well....
I have a strange relationship with this stuff.
I tried this frag at a dept. store counter, then obsessed about it until I bought a bottle.
For me, it's not very wearable; I don't want to smell...
Right on. In no particular order:
L'Instant de Guerlain Pour Homme
Hey myaccolades, great post! I'd been wondering about CB IHP since I saw your original post. Thanks for the PM and the excellent info.
Some of my faves:
Acqua di Parma
CB I hate Perfume Shop
In Russia, your fragrances ritually apply you.
I voted lame!
Malle sent me two nice 2ml sprays. I was pretty psych'ed about that. I contacted them via and e-mail address found on their website.
Hugo and Lacoste, on the other hand, each sent...
Nice! I love those runs.
I just won an AdP Colonia 50ml spray, 150 mlColonia lotion & 100g Colonia Soap for 44USD shipped on E-bay.
So many great bottles that I never would have thought to mention!
Many, many thanks for all the excellent posts.
I am in touch with an editor of a local mag regarding a story on fragrance. She is looking for decorative, photogenic bottles for the accompanying photos. I am concerned that my eye is not...
Here's what I know about shopping for Masculine and Unisex frags in the St. Louis Metro Area. Please append!
For me, dealing with the Neiman Marcus SAs is...
Original Santal. Dee-licious.
7 minute public radio interview- "Itís been said that 'writing about music is like dancing about architecture.' The same could be said for writing about food, or dance, or painting. And yet every...
I absolutely love JP2, but dislike Joop I can detect some similarities tho.
BTW, ChuckW- am I the pending buyer for your JP2? :D If so, I'm still interested.
Heh. I tried it and almost bought a bottle! While I don't remember it as being spectacular, it smelled good on me. Most aquatics turn sour the instant they touch my skin.
Does your mall have a L'Occitane? If so, check out Eau de Baux.
Saw the thread title, and Dzing! was the first thing to come to mind and, I might add, quickly!
I never receive compliments on the fresh and clean or citrusy scents. On the other hand, L'Anarchiste, Envy, B*Men and Allure Sport always garner attention. Check out what Envy got me the other day:...
Maybe West Indian Limes by Truefitt and Hill?
I have had nothing but good experiences with my sample requests. The sole negative came from Guerlain, but they were very polite. Truefit & Hill hooked me up with an extremely generous array. I...
Thierry Mugler Cologne
Though I am very new to this as well, I might recommend:
Fresh- Cannibis Santal
Chanel- Alure Sport
Thierry Mugler- A*Men and B*Men
Guerlain- L'instant pour Homme
Also, I recommend you try...
Dolce & Gabbana Pour Homme
I just got some samples from them today! I am psych'ed to say the least.
June 7, PM, I sent a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org explaining that I'd visited the local Neiman-Marcus and was told...
Kouros is crazy. It's fascinating stuff. The way it develops on my skin is amazing. I would own and wear this stuff even if everyone around me hated it.
But this is not the case. Last week I...
The logistics of this are probably to much for my brain, but I'd be an enthusiastic participant should it come to pass. Why don't we see how many will sign up? Perhaps we could do something on a...
I've made quite a few blind buys. I consider only two of them failures- Joop! and Fahrenheit. I bought both knowing the controversy surrounding them among Basenoters. And it's not that I dislike...
Montale Patchouli Leaves- a sample from kindly vendor Vijay.
This stuff is fascinating and plain weird. To my nose this smells like a combo of patchouli oil and a extra musty antique clothing...
Davidoff Good Life. Everyone in my office likes it, male, female, young and old. That never happens. Caron L'Anarchiste is also well-liked.
Whoops, sorry about that. Bad info deleted.
Apologies if this topic has been done recently, or worse, done to death.
I love to see pictures of frag collections. Attached is one of mine. It's small but growing. I'd be very interested in...
Kouros time! ;)
I got the big bottle of M7 for $8 a couple of weeks ago. The juice therein is a steal at 5 times the price IMHO. The bottle wasn't marked, a price check yielded no info, and so they charged me 8...
L'Instant de Guerlain pour Homme
I won't be giving up any time soon. I'm too fascinated with this hobby. I'm definitely looking for the unique scents that you're describing. I bought a handful of decants yesterday,...
I'm new to this fragrance thing, and enjoying it immensely. I've spent hours researching and trying stuff, and I'm hooked.
But I feeel as though I've hit a wall of sorts-...
