2011 batch GIT, amazing stuff
Tobacco Vanille, one or two sprays max, its sexy stuff for sure
To me there is nothing even remotely edible smelling about this scent, its pretty far away from gourmand.
GIT, love the 2011 batch, SMW I do not care for at all.
Well I got GPH and I have to say, I love this one, it's a shame it seems to be discontinued.
a couple sprays of Tobacco Vanille, smooth, luxurious, sexy, loud but extremely restrained, you will have to fend them off, or risk being eaten alive :D
http://www.ausliebezumduft.de/duefte.html faultless service, excellent selection, also check ebay out for samples and decants.
Micallef Note Vanillée
Tobacco Vanille, extremely strong and powerful but also extremely restrained, perfect balance, my most complimented frag by a country mile.
Masterpiece is in the nose of the beholder, to me it is. It depends if you like the smell of it or not, it's a great high quality frag for very little money. £50 for 75ml it's a steal. it's one of my...
calone I dont like at all, It offends me in a sickening sort of way, for fresh frags, mint and non-tart citrus for me is on top.
Tobacco Vanille, new years night L'Instant Extreme
L'instant extreme EDP by miles
It's an absolute beast, in both projection and longevity, love it or hate it, it will get you bleeping on most peoples radars, I had to limit myself to one spray max despite not really smelling it...
Mitchum 48 hr anti persistent un-perfumed for 'women' or so it says
+1 for Tobacco Vanille, give it a good sample wearing. I'm wearing it all the time right now, I find myself enjoying it more every time I wear it, many will say it's linear, but not for me, well...
Has anyone tried proper barrier cream? I've always though to try this sometime, it stops chemicals being absorbed by the skin.
also in second place:
To me one is a thin watery lavender creation, the other is a synthetic vanilla atom bomb, worlds apart.
delete, double post connection glitch ;)
Not to my taste unfortunately, finding it harsh, very loud and far too floral.
GPH now on order, I will try gph2 sometime, so far I have been underwhelmed by tea based frags, like tea for two, like an off smelling tea, didnt quite live up to the hype for me.
Interesting, thx for your insights, I it is, will look out for II as well.
I really like Gucci pour homme, and now considering sourcing a bottle, but never having found a way to sample its newer brethren, which one would you buy if you had to pick?
I'm tempted to blind...
Really like this one,
Agree, lidge wipes the floor with amen flankers, this one is on a whole different level altogether.
Homme is much better, love the smell but no way would I wear it out in public, smells like a grandmas handbag ;)
Guerlain L'Instant Extreme screams confidence, is masculine, dry, open.
Not really a fan of this one at all, from a sample
About £750 to date over the last 20 years
The only one I have tried so far that does it for me every breath is L'instant Pour Homme extreme, been wearing steady for over 2 weeks and still cant get enough
It put me in mind of Paco XS but a bit more refined.
I dont think it smells like chocolate, as in a chocolate bar, or chocolate pudding, more like a dry spicy cocoa, very masculine IMO.
This stuff is super strong, lasts for ages, and it really gets out there, people will smell you. I have had to stop wearing it for a while since I was drawing too much attention, from now on only one...
Good review, audio needs to be fixed though, it fading out and in.
l'instant de guerlain extreme
I buy the full bottle If I find a gem that I love to wear, samples and decants for the rest :)
Only one I tried was Sartorial, great barbershop scent for the first hour or so but I found a floral note in the drydown that ruined it for me, any girlyness and its a pass for me.
My current fave, and yes the more I wear it the more I get addicted to it! you can buy decants from Chris at http://fragrancetalk.com/decants/
Might also be worth trying out Kokorico, it's said to be somewhat similar to l'instant, but I havent got my nose on it yet.
I really like all the youtube reviews, people from different backgrounds with many levels of experience, you dont only get the words but you get the body language as well, so important when trying to...
34 years here,
No 1 bye far for me is Guerlain L'Instant Extreme
No 2 Tobacco Vanille
No 3 probably GIT or L'instant EDT if I had to pick out of my now 100+ bottles, decants & samples
Have a look here, this is a place in Germany that does samples of nearly all the bottles they stock, They send to all over Europe, I have had nothing but great service, all so far have been 2.5ml...
edit, no international shipping :(
I cant thank you guys enough, made my day, I have quite a few of those on order now, keen to seek out the rest of them. Only ones I tried mentioned are Le male and Caron pour un Homme, I like le male...
Cant wait to give that one a go!
Hoping some of you fragheads may be able to point me in the right directions, I'm looking for a nice old school barber shop fragrance, something creamy, luxurious, a hit of maybe wood,...
I'd agree with this, the tobacco in this is not very life like to my nose, I was expecting a lot more on the tobacco side of this, but all in all its not too bad, worthy of a sample at least.
Not a big fan of this one, extremely strong, 2.5mls decant that given the strength I think will last forever.
Aventus and L'instant extreme
The sample I had I could smell it on myself the next day, relentless, but I didnt like the smell, the lime was too pungent for me.
Contradiction for Men by Calvin Klein back in 1999
Two sprays max for me, one is usually fine, man.... 7-8 sprays, you must have been reeking of it lol .
I certainly agree it opens up about an hour in and comes alive, It lasts on me up to 24...
Of the popular ones I have so far tested/own:
L'Instant EDP + EDT, especially the EDT!
Creed GIT, Aventus
I got a bottle from Debenhams recently and I can confirm the packaging is the same as the second one you have listed.
l'instant de guerlain pour homme
Sharp and bitter citrus, like chewing a mouthful of citrus skins, the softer flesh notes of the fruit is great but I cant stand the bitter sharp skin oil notes. Also the classic aquatic note, and any...
I got a sample of Play which was revolting, also a free nail file, since i'm male, I used it to sand the end of a copper pipe prior to soldering 8)
Used them before, perfect service.
both L'instant and Colonia intensa I just cant get enough of them right now!
+1 !! :grin:
I cannot vote, there is good and bad in all these houses, if we dont like the perfume, or we think its too expensive, we have the option simply not to buy it, The haters amuse me equally as much as...
I really like this one, very tempted to go FB, after the decant
black forest gateau
Dark Chocolate, cream, loads of black cherries, kirsch, some vanilla, some peppermint, congac. mmmmmm
I was kind of hoping for a chocolate atom bomb, might give this one a miss!
