I disagree. I doubt anyone would think it smelled like booze.

Hautelook, Gilt, Amazon, 6pm
That's quite the story hahaha.... I wouldn't say that they're that much different though.
I'd say thyre comparable to maybe wandering down savile row trying to decide on a tailor for a new...
I just received a bottle of Van Cleef and Arpels Bois D' Iris today on a blind buy. I bought it based upon the presumption that it would resemble Bois D' Argent by Dior. While I definitely pick up...

Isn't there an Etat D'Libre like this?
I need to work for you!
If the charges are just pending then I'm sure you;re fine. 2 Months ago I made a large purchase at NM and at the same time made an exchange from my prior visit. Somehow I was overcharged by over...
Just received a new sample of MR from the boutique in NYC and I can say without hesitation that the cloves are waaay toned down. I'm so disappointed...
Thanks for the suggestions... I too was afraid of the recent Estée lauder acquisition and was considering the larger size solely for the purpose of "playing it safe".
As for the scent itself, it...
Which of these would you say have the strongest sprayers?
I don't shop there because I feel like like they are overpriced.
And I agree... It's frustrating, but not the end of the world. I believe the PC is a small operation.
For some reason Aramis smells like urine to me. Also, a woman told me that I smelled like urine while wearing CDG 2 Man (and no, I didn't have an accident).
Haha, ya as much as I love this fragrance, I'm not sure I could stomache 5 sprays. 1-2 would be plenty I think.
Haha that makes sense. I agree that it's pretty amazing also.
Good points have been made. Maybe I'll purchase the 50ml and decant some for swap or sale since I'm sure I won't use the whole bottle any time soon.
Leather for sure
I was at a party once and a friend of mine screamed "it smells like $h!t in here! It was me and I was wearing A*men.
I love soooo many that I couldn't possibly afford. Personally, I would recommend starting with Serge Lutens, as they could be found at VERY reasonably prices. Although I don't think any particular...
I'm ordering a bottle of Patchouli 24 by Le Labo. I plan on wearing 1-2x /week this winter and may dare to wear it in the summer. I'll be spraying 1-2 x. If you were me would you buy the 15 or 50 ml...
Very possible. Btw OP... Your original bottle is newly new, why did you buy a backup bottle? Has there been legit reformulation talk? If so, I need to get that bottle I've been procrastinating on...
I wouldn't worry about going too crazy at first. If you're more interested in tackling niche houses off the bat, then I would recommend visiting very high end dept stores like Saks, Neiman Marcus,...
I agree 100%
I personally think that Mandarino Di Amalfi smells amazing, but is extremely fleeting. Combine that with a >$200 price tag = :thumbdown:
I wouldn't blind buy any of these
Gris Clair and L'Occitan Eau De L'Occitan
I sure hope so. I sold my bottle a couple of years ago due to the shotty longevity.
The service there is great. I'm not sure how knowledgeable they are regarding fragrances however. They specialize in imported toiletries, men's shaving supplies, and holistic/herbal remedies. ...
I used to live down the block and have shopped here plenty. It's a classic German apothecary and they carry a few niche houses such as L'Artisan, Diptyque, and Penhaligon's; along with a ton from...
Hanae Mori HM, Bleecker Street, Pure Havane, and recently discovered Frederic Malle Dries Von Noten
Actually, what are you looking for? If you're looking toward people criticizing you on a "school bus" then none of these are appropriate. In being seemingly responsible... Any woman or...
Well my friend...I can give you some sincere advice from someone who has lived with a 5 o'clock shadow and razor burns so bad that I would only shave every 3 days or so before landing a very...
I wish I had a signature scent.
Bleu de Chanel
Posts most be less than 1000 words...ready the stickies.....JK...
Bought mine 2-3 years ago and easily lasts me 8+ with projection.
Not going to comment on what I'd spray on it. Probably something "natural"...
I still think that A*Men is the best of the bunch. Next I would put pure havane.
The other two are pretty strong IMO. TV is not as potent as you would think. I use 3 sprays and it's not overpowering at all.
Malle- Dries Van Noten
It makes me feel good. I tend to look at each bottle as part of my wardrobe. I don't own one pair of pants, and I certainly wouldn't own one bottle of fragrance. However, in my case shelling out...
I believe the vitamin shoppe carries some for under $10, but I think your best bet would be via Ebay. I've purchased some and they came with droppers, measuring cups, and an assortment of sizes from...
Great to know. Thanks!

Just a heads up, I received my full bottle directly from Frederic Malle and I did not receive samples.
If you're dealing with professionals I'd recommend something inoffensive like creed original vetiver, Malle vetiver extraordinaire, Tom ford grey vetiver, or even prada amber or infusion d'homme.
Can't say that I have one per se, but if I'm up in the air as to what to wear I usually reach for Chanel AHS.
Hanae Mori HM EDP garners many compliments and smells more unique than the ones you listed.
Has anyone ordered directly thought the Frederic Malle or Le Labo websites? I'm curious as to whether or not they include samples. I can order Le Labo through luckyscent, but they do not carry Malle...
Bought a 50ml bottle of Malle Bois d'Orage so that I could splurge on another bottle later this month. Took home tons of Malle, Odin, Le Labo, and SL samples. Really liking Odin 02 and 07 along...
1697 by Frapin...
Wow, I wasn't aware of the EL acquisition. Seems as though that company has its hand in everything.
Thanks for the suggestions thus far. I sniffed many of the malles when I was there but was just overwhelmed by that point. I also sniffed Le Labo patchouli 24, Heeley Cocobello and Hippie Rose, and...
I was referring to the fact that many people dismiss Bond fragrances just because they're Bond fragrances.
The box is unopened. I purchased a travel spray which they filled for me along with the full bottle.
I purchased a bottle of Atkinson's 24 Old Bond Street Triple Extract last week and love it, but longevity, projection, etc are extremely poor. I'm going to exchange it. I'm willing to go up to...
Just buy it. I don't notice great variances in batch numbers. Certainly the average person would not be able to at least.
It shouldn't surprise you that many people on this site are pretentious.
Probably because they share a similar vibe
LDDM, CDG 2 Man, most by Amouage, any of the CDG incense series, Montale's Black, Aoud or Dark Aoud.

Are these still for swap?
What's the exact difference between an EDC and Cologne Concentree?
Eau Sauvage Parfum
Infusion d' Homme
I could've sworn that the original was an EDT and that the EDP replaced it later on.
I need a cap for the following fragrances:
Creed GIT black
I can pay or trade for any of these.
Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille
Tom Ford Tuscan Leather
Tom Ford Extreme
Comme Des Garçons Kyoto
Bond NY Oud
Serge Lutens Chergui
Ralph Lauren Purple Label
TDH by no means resembles any of these fragrances at all. I've owned all 3 of these. La Nuit EDT is definitely my favorite amongst them. As for my feelings in regards to F Black? It's Ok......
A woman once told me I smelled like piss after wearing this.
That being said, aventus gets me compliments every single time I wear it. It's the only fragrance I've ever owned which I can actually...
Mike, would you be interested in doing another Tobacco Vanille split once it gets closer to fall?
Spicebomb is spicy but sweet. Maybe Marc Jacobs bang!
Smelt it on paper today via post card sample from TM. It seems quite different than the other recent flankers. So far I like it.
Looking to swap a few
I have for trade:
Prada Amber Intense
Bleu de Chanel
Lacoste L.12.12 Noir
I don't think chinos and a nightclub mesh well
I wear it year round
Actually, I just browse periodically for scents that I'm looking for. Occasionally I stumble upon deals like this.
This will be arriving today. Amazing deal from overstock. $28.99 shipped for a 100ml tester.
Diesel fuel for life, ysl L'homme, and boss bottled are all good options.
I get my suits from Suits 20/20 in Skokie, on the chicago border Not sure if that's near you or not. They have suits at all price points. I've also considered a custom suit from DeLouice in...
What's wrong with aventus?
Don't think any of them are worth going out of your way to try. I keep very cool in my gym bag because it just smells clean, but not special and definitely does not even remotely resemble allure...
Far too pretentious for my liking
I smelled it at a small shop here, but they kept the Penhaligon's and Juliette Has a Gun behind the counter and just sprayed it on a test strip for me. Barney's sells it, but I refuse to step foot...
That's quite the phallic looking bottle HA!
Prada Amber and Tom Ford Grey Vetiver
This is some good input. So, thus far it seems as though it's not as bad as advertised. Worst case scenario, I'm sure I wouldn't have too hard of a time passing it along to someone on this site.
