Havana is beautiful and refreshing.
Strange as it may seem, I am not really familiar with the Gaultiers, so I could not say.
I like it a lot! It is a very sweet, powdery oriental. It is not similar to Opium Pour Homme to me.
I am sure I never heard of it, but it is not impossible.
Bogart Citytower reminds me very strongly of a particular (designer) fragrance from the 80s or possibly early 90s. But I cannot remember which one. Any ideas?
To me Great Jones is more similar to Quorum than to Paco Rabanne Pour Homme.
Habit Rouge, since 1980.
I mean this product.
It is quite similar to Van Gils, except for the weird fruit note at the beginning.
What about the perfume manufacturers themselves? They are taking advantage of the fact that you do not know how to make perfume. The actual ingredients cost less than $1.
Incense, in other words.
1. Civet does not smell like urine.
2. There has never been any civet in Kouros.
It is an aromatic fougère, very similar to Paco Rabanne Pour Homme.
There is an unimaginably tiny Parfums de Nicolaï store not that far from Harrods. It is worth a visit.
Not another thread about "chemicals."
I own one, which I bought in February of 2002. It is just the regular EdT in a weird bottle.
Hardly. I am wearing grey flannel pants as we speak.
Speaking of which, what do you think "Green Irish Tweed" is a reference to?
This is an advanced "panty-dropper" joke that sailed over everyone's head except mine.
Sex Appeal never had any pheromones in it. Perhaps you are thinking of Andron?
It may not be reformulation as much as extreme dilution.
The Eau de Parfum is not really Habit Rouge to me. Of course, the Eau de Toilette is hardly Habit Rouge anymore, either. For some reason the shower gel smells like it should, however.
Just hit him hard in the face once he has answered. That way your manliness cannot be questioned.
Habit Rouge, since 1980.
That musk has come to be associated with cleanliness is testament to the mysteries of the human brain. And it suggests that if only laundry detergent manufacturers would scent their products with...
I really like The Bug, which is more or less a pure blast of galbanum. Very green.
Etro's Palais Jamais is somber and somewhat depressing. But nice.
I am sure they will be happy to let you purchase all of them.
Cotswold by Dukes of Pall Mall. And please try the search function first next time.
Aha! So it was you, then! Unmasked at last!
These older women, exactly how old were they, would you say?
This has nothing to do with the topic, but what happened to the member whose posts were all in lower-case except for the letter "B," which was always capitalized? Does anyone know what I am talking...
It means it does not smell like Christmas. Because the Christmas in question is inside a bottle. Where it cannot be smelled. Because it is in a bottle.
Aramis Havana is what you want.
I am impressed that you allow your husband to go on dates. If only more people were as broad-minded.
As one would expect from its name.
If it is of any help, I am not interested in it.
As an insanely expensive, more subdued alternative to Quorum it works splendidly! I am not entirely sure why such a thing is useful, however. (I bought mine at a substantial discount.)
I think you may be misremembering.
What is "Aventus"?
Aventus is in Italy, not Africa.
There is no civet note in Kouros, and never has been. Kouros is an aromatic fougère. Also, civet does not smell like urine.
Somebody on here, perhaps in a review, pointed out that it smells like bleach, and I am afraid that this is now all I get from it.
Eau de Guerlain. And the current version is perfectly serviceable. It also goes very well with the various L'Occitane verbena-scented products.
Cool Water has no more calone in it than, say, Grey Flannel, a very similar fragrance. It is not an aquatic. I think possibly the name and the color of the bottle are deceiving people into thinking...
Except of course there is no calone in Cool Water.
And Luca Turin is Satan, perhaps?
Guerlain Homme is intended for the mass market. I am not sure it is even on display in the main Guerlain store in Paris (although I did not specifically look for it).
I find it poetic.
Do it! Then return it.
At the moment, probably Mouchoir de Monsieur. Historically, definitely Vetiver and Habit Rouge, but sadly the current versions are nothing like the originals---they hardly qualify as fragrances at...
Jicky! Just kidding. Intriguingly, my favorite fragrance of all time, Guerlain's Vetiver, was launched the year I was born.
To me, it is similar to Chamade Pour Homme, but others seem to disagree.
Just check what it says on the box first.
Actually, I think I changed my mind about it. I now quite enjoy it. I tell myself the balloon effect is really "myrrh."
Eau de Guerlain. This shower gel from L'Occitane goes very well with it:
Probably Old Spice.
I hate rank fragrances.
Frankly, I would be surprised to learn it had said anything.
It is utterly revolting. Fans of Dior Homme Intense might enjoy it.
It smells nothing like paper.
Knize Ten. The existence of which I learned about on this board, by the way. Thanks, board!
I find it hardly smells of anything at all.
I also have trouble remembering things. In my pockets I find Polaroids of people I do not recognize, with "Do NOT trust this man" or "KILL this man" on them in my own handwriting, and I always wish I...
Of those two---Guerlain.
My guess would be he means "introduced recently."
That is certainly possible.
There are no, or hardly any, musks in Jovan Musk, if I remember correctly.
Where is Blue Stratos?
"Leaves of the Absolute tree," indeed.
A person who "enjoys being depressed" is not actually depressed, you know.
Vetiver Extraordinaire is a reasonable substitute for Guerlain's old Vetiver, which in its current incarnation smells essentially of nothing at all, really. It is somewhat more expensive, of course.
If perfumery was art, there would be a theoretical literature about it, like there is a theoretical literature about film, for instance. But there is none.
Lagerfeld Classic, which may be acquired very inexpensively. Although it starts out quite strange, it quickly settles down to a pleasant leather scent of the Knize Ten type.
How about if we call them "civilians"?
The mask on the cap is wood, not plastic, on the vintage bottles. That is how you tell them apart.
There has definitely been a reformulation. Vintage is the only way to go.
I know what you mean, but using the words "clean" and "fresh" about it is somewhat unfortunate, given the current popular understanding of those terms.
I believe it was just The Factory. And if "factory" is trademarked, lots of firms would be in trouble.
In any case, the current version is fine.
Seeing as how Andy Warhol has been dead for quite some time now, it does seem prudent to part with him.
This, to me, has absolutely nothing to do with the original Colonia, and is not even an Eau de Cologne in any sense of the word.
It comes from a plant, though.
Good! This will allow you to buy more perfumes.
Ha! No, what has happened is that the definition of "chic" has changed. As it does all the time, of course, though slowly.
I had no idea it was possible; I am horrified.
Is there writing in Arabic on it?
The current version is just fine.
