LOL i have the a similar experience with Aventus. But i have received some compliments from women as well.
A compliment is a compliment. In fact a compliment from a guy especially a stranger is a lot harder to garner due to the "macho" culture where people are afraid to be labelled gay from saying...
Encre Noir Sport if you can find some to purchase.
samples i dont like? all the time (especially that exceptional crap that fragrance net pushes). One bottle of one of those so called "blends" that supposedly enhances the smell of M.I. I cant...
Not a good sign that she felt comfortable enough to pay him a compliment about how good he smells? what am i missing here?
Not all of them are that way.
I agree. I haven't tried it but it cant hurt to try.
The word Sales Associates is akin to a red cloth to a bull to some people on this forum..
If you are looking to impress her, wear what she likes. If not then wear your reflection.
because he ends up with three fragrances for the same amount of 1 niche fragrance. He is not blind buying mainstream releases and so one would assume he is actually happy with the designer...
Wow ... you are quite a considerate gf. Kudos to you.
Just like you are entiled to like 10 or whatever of their fragrances, i am entitled to say that most of the stuff they release is not tolerable to me. YOU do not get to tell me what i can or can not...
Great scent. Ran into a lil under half filled tester at a kiosk in the mall this past weekend that they wanted $70 for. yea its not that good..
My exact feeling..
one of the few tolerable Bonds but it still has that unpleasant note that doesn't sit well with me.
The only thing that smells a bit like GIT to me is Green Valley. I dont see the similarities to MI.
LIDGE is one of (if not) my longest lasting fragrances but it stops projecting after a couple of hours for me. It lasts all day on my clothes and skin over 10 hours but someone standing a lil off...
LIDG and LIDGE seem like two separate frags to me. Even if the patch is cut down, i doubt it will be as bland as the original pour homme.
Sounds perfect now. I pray this review is accurate. :) LIDGE has never really been a huge projector after the first couple of hours anyway.
If they do reformulate it, i hope they cut down on the patchouli. its a tad bit much in my opinion
Toss up between silver mountain water and By Man
tried em out and i like their Neroli. It is very strong though especially for a citrus scent. good in the summer.
Creed Jardin d' Amalfi
I always spray on my clothes in addition to my skin. The scents go away after i wash them or after a couple of days for the items i don't wash immediately. I def helps with longevity and projection.
Hopefully no one else has to endure that :laugh:
Ok now its obvious you are trolling.. :)
This has to be one of the most absurd things ive read online.. :) At least its posted in the right forum..
LOL never ceases to amaze me.
MI. VIW is excellent but could do with a lil less lime in my opinion.
OP- None from your list. Listen to this man above pls.. This set has great variety and he will find something he likes in there.
Mont Blanc Individuel has less projection/longevity than Joop in my opinion. They do smell similar to one another though. Alpha1 try spraying on your undershirts if you wear any, otherwise, spray...
I prefer the opening of Aventus but the drydown of GIT. Both excellent frags.
The onese made by Travolo work well for me

10 ml atomizers are small enough for you to discreetly apply in your car, bathroom, office gym etc. Aventus is surprisingly strong. Even one spray lasts long and is perceptible by those around you.
They are not not made for the general public.
No need to defend your position. if you like it, own up and be proud.
Please repeat the highlighted again. I dont understand why this concept is so hard for people to get. If you dont like something, keep moving. No one compels you to read or respond to anything!
Lol. yea Erolfa does nothing for me.
Creed WIndsor with its gin note sounds like something you might like, i.e. if you can find one at a decent price.
It was an old response but quite shocking. I dont understand why people have a problem when someone has a different opinion or experience from them. Anyone who does not agree with them is...
What principle though? Do perfume houses have an exclusive right to a specific smell? I dont see the reason to make any apologies for what you are wearing regardless of price to the average consumer....
I disagree. The opening of MI can be harsh to the nose. I sneeze at times if i spray this on my upper chest and catch a whiff of the opening so i understand completely why she would react that way....
Lyric Man for me all day. I tried PoAL and had to wash it right off my skin. I have no desire whatsoever to smell like that. Discarded my sample as well to make sure i don't put it on and spray it...
Too cloying for me no matter how little i spray. The ginger is extra sharp and stings my nose. Unfortunately, a tester broke on my bathroom floor a while back and that was difficult to bear for a...
Excellent advice in this post..
LOl this happened to me the first time i got aventus as well. 3 or 4 sprays was waaaayyy too much. I was also visiting friends with a young baby in the house. Never made that mistake again.
M7's "reformulated" version (not the current version) really is not that much different from the vintage. It is definitely tamer in the opening but the drydown is exactly the same to me.
And this is the classy way to disagree with someone Else's point of view. kudos to you.
You never eat Ice Cream with Pie, Or Salad and Dressing, or Surf and Turf?, what about Picture in Picture? :tongue:
To me, MBI and Joop smell a lot closer to each other than either of them smell to Original Santal.
@ OP. if you are interested in Creeds, just try and get decants of them. They are affordable and...
This. The only one i would come close to spraying more than 3-4 sprays would be 8711 and i honestly doubt spraying more would make a difference for that frag.
I dont think DHI blind would be a good idea. You gotta to see if you can enjoy the iris note. Have you tried SDV since you like the sweet frosty vanilla?
Thats how i layer personally, but some people actually mix two separate scents into an atomizer and then spray and it also works well. I layer quite a bit and most times more than i wear individual...
Yea, Eau is far away from DHI. I think you would have been better off buying Dior Homme as that is a lot more versatile for all of the seasons and occassions.
Smells similar to Neroli Portofino, doesn't last longer than 15 minutes.
I see it listed on Ebay, are you scared of it being a fake? A local perfume place had a small bottle in stock but they were asking for way to much for it (similar to ebay prices)
Tom Ford White Suede- 4
Yes it is rare and getting harder to find at an affordable price. Buy it and if you do not like it, you can sell it on ebay or here
This.. I pray i never pick up on it either as JdA is a fav of mine.
Aveeno unscented bodywash and lotion works for me too.
LOL i love safari becuase it reminds me of my Dad. He wore it while i was growing up (sorry OP,i know it reinforces what the girl says). I would buy it the next time i run across a small bottle for...
Tom Ford White Suede works well for me.
They may not know about reformulations, but the average person can notice if something smells different from what they are used to.
I was waiting for your review of JdA and it was worth the wait. Bravo. Definitely my favorite fragrance of all those i own. I also have no problem wearing it although my GF also though i was wearing...
How is this possible when anyone who says anything anything remotely positive about a creed frag is automatically a Creed employee or a shrill for creed?:grin:
Some like the original A*Men but its not for me.
I would love to use the accompanying grooming products as well as they are a perfect way to layer your specific scent,. alas they usually are quite overpriced. Unless i get a gift scent with...
Timmi-j I'm glad you have found something your wife enjoys. I hope you like it as well. I find it to be an excellent scent.
Lets see how long it will take for this thread to be closed down for...
I get tons of Lemon out of Eight & Bob and it has excellent longevity
Yea oh argue semantics when you have no point. It is patently obvious to anyone that chooses to use their brain that my post (and every other response over the past couple of days) was directed at...
First off, good luck at the hospital. I hope your parent is ok.
With regard to the highlighted, you are assuming that newbies go back to the countless pages upon pages to read up on every topic on...
Cmon is the above necessary? Even if he/she is a creed marketer, are you compelled to do anything they post?
LOL was thinking the same thing!
Pull the trigger. This is a rare case the "alternatives" do not really come close to the real thing IMO. The tales of M.I. disappearing is overstated. It lasts for several hours, it just does not...
Ive done a 180 on this. The first time i tried it on, i washed it off my wrist and wondered exactly what you did. I really like it now after trying it again. Surprising because i cant stand Tobacco...
Obviously a poor troll attempt..
There is no indication OP has ever come close to doing that..
No one will compliment you if you smell like crap just because you sprayed more volume of crap on you. A lot of creed fragrances smell good period.
How long did it take for the smell to go away in that room?
Def do not get the cotton candy vibe at all. Loads of eucalyptus for me.
Anything to get rid of Bleu de Chanel...
Try and take a little break from wearing anything to see if you can "reset" your nose.
I do layer mine with Aventus but i dont think it will give you what you are looking for since you want to get more citrus out of it. I found it difficult to wear VIW alone because i thought the lime...
Creed- I can do two versions
Spring- Green Irish Tweed
Summer- Jardin D' Amalfi
Winter- Royal Oud
Spring- Green Valley
Summer- Millesime Imperial
of cours robes08 has decreed it!! Lord forbid anyone have a contrary opinion. He is simply another consumer like you. Just because he has a bunch of videos on youtube doesn't make his opinion the...
don't you have access to a sephora where you can get samples of most of these made for you?
i also never got this "christmas in a bottle" mantra that is repeated re burberry london
Jardin D' Amalfi
Gucci Pour Homme 1 (2003) and Gucci Envy just because they are discontinued and are difficult to come by.
I like the Aventus and JDA blend. Two others that work well for me are Aventus and VIW and especially Aventus and Original Cologne. I have had a few comments on that blend.
The only layering ive...
I would stay away from Himalaya if you dont want powdery. The other choices are pretty good. Erolfa and Royal Water are not my favorites but they are not sweet or powdery so you should still check...
I prefer Tuscan Leather to Tobacco Vanille. Its my SOTD (layered with TV). It also layers excellently with the A word..
Some wear on their clothes also..
The longevity i suppose. Its a bit too linear and spicy for my liking.
