For $4 bucks I ended up ordering too. Too dumb of a price not to. Ill be posting too.
Thanks for the link. In case you weren't aware, there are many different interpretations of amber in perfumery from Michael Jordan Legend to HdP Ambre 114 to TF Amber Absolute. All amber, all very...
Ive already read all of them. Not a single person describes the amber in their description.
Ive been reading up on this one. Seems to be an impressive little stunner for dirt cheap. What Im curious of is the amber in it. I see a lot of people get amber here but don't say what kind. Is...
OMG everything!!!!! Buy, buy, buy!!! Where is this place? LOL
Ive discovered this along the way a few months ago. I was looking for 'leather' and found what was referred to as leather. In my world, leather is the smell of my hunting boots or my work...
I like this, kinda funny but so true.
Just shows you the power of the pine. My favorite pine would be SL Fille en Aiguilles for strictly pine. So many good ones listed here.
You might as well buy it again now. You know you are going to use it.
Im was with you on this thought...lol
Id go with
vintage Polo-green, masculine tobacco and leather, not a trace of powder
vintage Halston Z14-cinnamon, leather, and pine....no powder
YSL Opium-cinnamon and spice, not as old as the...
Im also a very big green fan. Id recommend:
Ralph Lauren Polo &
For me its absolutely vintage Polo since Im completely obsessed with it right now. Its full of character, like me.
Id suggest Acqua di Parma Colonia for its all around capabilities. But, Grey Vetiver is hard to beat and very highly recommended too.
The only problem I could see would be the strength and longevity as stated above. Otherwise, spray away!
How will this work? A sweet EDC?
I like the sound of the EDT better but I definitely would like to smell both of these.
StH give me OF. But then so does Aventus. Not a fan of either but Id pick Aventus because its more interesting to me.
Oud and incense have been done before....get Memoir.
These are all easily wearable.....a real man can wear Boadicea the Victorious Complex! I cant understand how anyone can wear something this harsh and leathery.
Wow. You have me really interested in Rose 31 with this sentence. I really like d'un Soir; creamy woody rose with good sillage and longevity for me.
A lot of in-laws would see "cologne" as a way of attracting another woman which would not be looked very highly upon. Unless you think they can understand, no need to reveal everything to them.
This is great to hear! I have yet to buy a bottle of this one which I much prefer of the extreme counterpart.
I say add the option and fill it in if you want. If not, don't. Pretty easy......
I would just wear what you usually do according to the season or however you do it.
I cant see them restoring the King to the throne where he should be for 2015. Not with oakmoss being pushed out even more. Its still worth a hope and a try.
Its good to hear these two have some similarities as I was just re-testing the Guerlain and found it very clean, citrusy pleasant.
Where do I buy the Guerlain? Its no where to be found!
After reading the hype I was sure I was going to really like this. Got my sample, tried it, hated it. Months later, tried again, not too bad. Weeks later, tried again, WOW, gotta get a bigger...
I like oud with a little skank or barnyard. Cant stand oud with rose. Oud and rose is nice but way too overdone in my opinion.
That would be an amazing time exploring the cellar of an old perfumery shop. Could you imagine what may be hiding in the corner?
My only thought is reformulations! I know that's jumping the gun a bit though.
Very thoughtful topic here. I like to think I have a keen nose but its hard to say what I may be anosmic to and not smelling around me. Someone must have done some studies on this somewhere along...
In Pennsylvania, I smell it all the time on women, almost all of them have some sort of scent be it perfume or smelly hand lotion. The men on the other hand, very, very few wear any scent at all...
Neat post. I think it goes without saying that the two must smell very similar for the memories to come rolling in like that. Its hard to trick the brain.
Im really liking what AdP has been up to in the past and lately. Im excited to see what they bring out.
This sounds interesting to me. Maybe nothing new but not a note list ive gave much thought.
Nothing. Why risk it?
Definitely recommend a vetiver of some sort for hot weather. Take your pick but Id start with Guerlain Vetiver.
Without a doubt! Also enjoying Guerlain home Intense right now. I never came around to Encre Noir, too sharp for my nose. Creed OV and TF Grey Vetiver are nice but nothing new.
Im sure somewhere Im using something wrongly but I try my best not to because it gets confusing. We need industry standard definitions!
Since we have a bunch of people on this thread familiar with PpH, how would you all say this fragrance smells? As in the main notes of the heart and base....
Definitely sample as much as you can and don't judge a fragrance by the first 15 minutes. They change a lot from start to finish. Good luck and have fun!
I would rather not see them personally. Honestly, if you are wondering "what would ______ wear?" you need to log-off and go play in the real world for a while. Who cares what they would wear!
What about Heeley Menthe Fraiche? Would it fit what Im looking for?
I just ordered a sample of Geranium pour Monsieur......thanks folks....also checking out Kenzo Power.
Ive heard the dislike for DN from different sources. Unfortunately, I cant comment on the vintage stuff. The notes list reads nice but when trying the newest stuff I really don't get any of it. ...
I don't get a lot of it in the ones Ive tried except Italian Cypress. IC would be amazing if not for the fact that it overpowers my nose and I cant smell it after a while. I would have to guess...
I don't get a lot of NP in Mugler Cologne. NP has a lot of neroli and white floral while Mugler has a lot of vetiver and soap. I find Bergamotto Marino with more similarities, although it has some...
Thanks anyway.....I may just blind buy it.
Ill check out the Eau Aimable again.
Anymore, something with a bit of minty freshness in it?
The Savile Row sounds like exactly what I am looking for. Anyone have a sample they want to cough up or trade?
I have some neroli fragrances that I absolutely love but I don't really consider...
Plenty of great suggestions here, thanks!
Ive tried Insense and love it but its not airy enough for me. I have a bottle of Cuir Pleine Fleur and LOVE it! Almost forgot about those two.
Hey folks. Im looking for a light, airy masculine floral. Something along the lines of Guerlain Homme Intense, Amouage Gold Man, or Issey Miyake original. Anything out there along those lines with...
Any pics of the bottom of the bottle?
Absolutely! This one is great. Huge bottle at a joke of a price. Pure L-A-V-E-N-D-E-R
Id recommend Colonia, Essenza, and Assoluta. I think the one that's probably the most crowd pleasing from this list would be the Assoluta but they are all really nice. Great citrus, good longevity,...
I have very few that are straight up sweet. Some of the others may have a sweet note in them but they aren't sweet overall. I tend to avoid sweet frags as they give off a vibe that I don't like.
hedonist222, if you are still into lavender it would be a big mistake to not check out Agua Lavanda by Puig. Its straight up earthy lavender in an EDC format for dirt cheap. Very good specimen for...
Damn!!! This is the most interested ive been in a while. All three look very intriguing, especially the Tellus. When are we doing a split on these?
Yeah that's what I thought. I was really excited reading the notes until I got to the amber and vanilla. Has generic-sweet-bomb written all over it.
Im on the fence with it. I bought a small sample of it and don't find myself reaching for it very much. I know its a better designer fragrance but it doesn't get me going.
Yes and no. Yes because I have many great fragrances from vintage to designer to niche. No because I would like to fill in some gaps where Im lacking variety in certain genres.
Much better....probably masterpiece material here were talking about.
Very good everyday frag, once sales get too low, I believe it will go too.
I believe there is a really good thread on here somewhere for dating Eau Sauvage. Ill see if I can find it.
Best answer here by far!
I try my best to steer clear of most SA's offering advice.
From the picture and notes listed above, I really had no hope for this one.
Ive bought a few back-ups recently. Ive seen a few come and go and have a descent grasp on when the time is right for a back-up. I agree that more designers are backed up due to two reasons. One,...
Buy the real deal!!! Weve all been down this road before and mostly regret getting the second best.
Suck it up! Just because someone smells funny doesn't mean they have nothing interesting to say. I bet Hemmingway had some funny smells about him through his lifetime.
This is a great deal! I wish I could justify another bottle of Cuir Pleine Fleur.
We need someone who owns one or the other to chime in. Anyone? Am I going to have to make the sacrifice and buy both for the sake of figuring this out?
For some reason Polo Green takes me back to my younger days. I just feel so relaxed and calm smelling it.
Ive been spraying my clothes for a long time, no problems so far. Spray away.
We need more answers on this. Ive been eyeing up regular vs concentree since I smelled the concentree at Nordstrom last year. I remember I liked it a lot but cant remember what the progression of...
Id hate to add it all up. I think it would make me realize how much of a problem this is. Remember, the first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem.....so don't admit to it!!!!.....or...
I don't know if this is a practice in the fragrance world but does anyone think they may be taking orders and treating them as pre-orders, kinda gauging how much to make?
And was dirt cheap too, now its doubled or tripled in price. Very good summer fragrance. Still need to buy the biggest bottle I can find. Quickly!
Very interesting thread here and im really glad someone dug it up. My vote goes to Quorum, vintage of course.
Im still trying to wrap my head around someone saying that Aventus is an oakmoss...
Under: Halston Z14
Most: Heeley Cuir Pleine Fleur
Least: RL Polo
I love Z14! Its probably my second favorite fragrance, seems to fit me perfectly also. It is very good in all forms except the newest without oakmoss.
How many sprays to clear out the straw? Ive never tried....
Nevermind, Neal. I just saw a price for one on the 'bay. $595 for 100ml. Not worth it to me.
That's it? Only 179? If you aren't interested in this hobby maybe you should find something else to do. J/K Sampling is VERY addicting.
Owwww boy, now you really started it.....
In your own words, what does Halston 101 smell like? Its breakdown looks interesting...
Oakmoss and vanilla. You could throw vials of oakmoss or vanilla into a blackhole across the galaxy and I would easily be able to smell them.
Been busy with work and finally getting back to this thread. Lot of good suggestions here. Vintage Loewe Esencia (current is not piney), Granville, Blenheim Bouquet (looks thin and lemony from the...
Essenza is the close winner for me followed by Colonia. Intensa was a different leathery take on the genre. The new Leather was good but I found it too feminine.
VERY well said SportsFan.....I couldn't have said it any better....
I recommend against LDDM. It gives me anosmia. I found that out after I bought a bottle. Sample it first!
I don't think the old powerhouses will ever be done the same way again. Powerhouses may come around again but in a different form. Think Slumberhouse or maybe something like Egoiste extrait.
I wouldn't do it. If you really want to mix the two to see what they smell like together, buy a 2ml atomizer and mix in there. It could be god-awful and at least youre only out 2ml of fragrance. ...
Mine is more of a skin scent throughout the life of the frag but it does last all day. Its a very nice tea, tobacco, and cinnamon fragrance as stated above. Im sure it would be perfect for work,...
Im really into some vintage Polo and Z14. What are some other vintage 'pine monsters' from back in the day that exude deep, green character? Im talking truly deep, green fragrances, not something...
I know at least one person on here owns this.
The hardest part about this maddening hobby is knowing when you've found your favorite 3 or so to buy. The nagging question "did I miss something great or will the next one be 'the one'" always...
Invasion Barbare or Grey Flannel both last tremendously on my clothing....days.....
Im with you on the BtB for a tobacco vanilla kick but TV and Spicebomb are leagues apart. I prefer Spicebomb by a mile with its leather, tobacco, and cinnamon. TV is too gourmand for me.
PdE Ambre Russe.....great boozy amber with amazing staying power and sillage
