does anyone agree…..I cannot discern any difference between the two….perhaps BDA is a tad mustier.
Got a big stash from Remik today: ADP Colonia Intensa, Bois D'Argent, UNUM LAVS and Coromandel.
Bullet proof packaging, stunning presentation…land I love the new spray bottles.
L'Air du Desert Marocain is ahead of its time.
As someone who purchases splits, I consider myself lucky to have found this site. Without it, I would never even have come close to 1/10th of the frags I have now, Id just buy one bottle of something...
Bad people for steeling.
Try the dior boutique in singapore....its in the shoppes by the bay opposite the marina bay sands casino...few weeks ago they were doing 25% off...plus you get gst refund.
Oh, to be 21 again :)
...i tried a sample of this a few minutes ago and love it because its so arid and aloof.
I test stuff.
I know…its bloody ridiculous…I get friends to pick me up a bottle or two when they're in Paris….last time I paid 148 Euro each for 120ml of Tabarome and BDP…and then got a VAT refund of 17 or 19% at...
007 would never ask anyones opinion…he'd listen to moneypenny fannying around a bit, and Q's stuffy admonitions...then he'd go ahead and do whatever he wanted and make up his excuses later.
Me...if i dont like a smell around me, i just move.
Since the Coromandel split hasn't filled up entirely, could you please adjust my portion to 50ml only (previous was 50 + 25 mls).
Also, if possible, could you put me down for 10ml of...
Hey Remik I can imagine it must be PM overload at your end…so please don't read this as a sign of my impatience….just wanted to point out in case you missed my PM:
1. Bois D'Argent split is full...
Remik, kindly put me down for 75ml of Coromandel, mate…I never thought this hypnotising elixir would make a re-appearance…one of the few things I've gone full bottle on in the past and never...
I had the exact same experience with Yatagan and Caron Pour Homme…i have them away for free to a relative. I haven't yet mustered up the courage to ask them if they like it.
Aah yes, Happy Birthday Remik…the one day you get to relax from your busy splitting schedule….haha.
Remik is you inbox still full mate? I sent you a PM enquiring about the possibility of consolidating my two splits together once the last spot on Bois D'Argent fills up (fingers crossed).
Ordered some stuff through them 2 weeks back…it showed as 'in stock'….they emailed me a week later and said they didn't have any of it any more and were wiring for new stock... someone else ordered...
Sorry to hear you had a bad experience…I have used them while ordering from Singapore and once I submit card details, I get an sms on my phone with a code that I have to input into the security...
I have tried both and can safely say that Aventus is a must in the arsenal of any horse (or filly) whisperer.
Want to get some ADP Colonia Intensa Shave Balm and collezione barbieri shave cream.
Not interested in all the big stores…any nice niche loyalty discount websites ala FragranceX …the latter don't...
Its good when they take off VAT…I was contemplating a purchase from an Italy based site recommended here and the guys refused to take off the VAT even though I was requesting shipping to Asia and...
Once again Remik delivers….received my Cuir D' Ange…what an amazing fragrance! Thanks.
If that is the case and your facial hair does turn grey, spraying aventus (batch zz01) will turn it black again.
I tried a sample of this and was blown away but i can see how it may not appeal to everyone...the names is very apt too.
Patch imperial....love the drydown...but the first hours i dont care much...
Just wanted to know what the codes 'ePS' and 'ePH' next to the split-ees name stand for?
What's that got to do with the price of fish?
Hey Remik i just read that epic locked thread....wtf.....lol.....the cheek of some of these young whippersnappers. Keep splitting man, love your work!
Although I had hopped off the Remik Express a few stations ago, I am glad to have jumped back on.
What can I say? Remik rocks…amazing attention to detail, communication, packaging and quality with...
Armani Prive Oud Royal is very nice. Id give it a sample sniff to see if you like it.
I wouldnt call it attractive but sexy....i would actively encourage people to dislike it.....one less person wearing it makes it that little bit less common.
I wouldn't have known where to look if not for your photograph….the embossing was too faint to detect on mine but yeah…both mine are 3174.
This is not the version where you spray 2 sprays and it lasts a day…i reckon you gotta go hog wild….like the 8 spray guys.
Also, haven't been bitten by anyone yet.
The base of my can has the numbers 33232 AL
Box has a long number sequence under barcode:
3 365440 245242
Below the barcode, outside the barcode printing area the number reads 16000
Ive seen it ar a big store near me....very affordable and smells divine.
But wonder if mysore sandal soap contains genuine sandal....anyone know for sure.
The manufacturer of this soap is a...
Got mine….smells nice and potent….love the anise note….I couldn't find the Batch no 4008 printed anywhere on the outer box, nor the can.
Nice work guys....i am sure we can raise the price of oil next if we all try....hehehehe.
I have only sampled half a dozen of montales offerings and own 2 of them....but this is not a brand i like.
I find their stuff to be devoid of any subtlety or finesse....the scents ive smelt are...
Some time back, I had read that Fragrancex didn't ship fast enough…seems to have changed, since I got an email the same day saying my stuff had shipped.
That was a very poor show by the shop in question. Must say I've never come across such rudeness before. I hope it was an isolated, thoughtless act, or they will drive away anyone who calls.
I jumped on this immediately…got two for good measure.
Hednic, I also discovered that the code you provided (FALL2014) still works for 11% off and free shipping …didn't get free shipping though...
Don't wear it to the interview…wear it to your first day on the job and let everyone know that things are gonna be different around here from now on.
I have become quite the perfumista thanks to these excellent splits that Remik hosts….got my latest selection….topnotch as usual. Excellent packaging and outstanding attention to detail. Must say I...
Few years ago, I remember trying Creed Baie de Genievre which had a great ambergris note….nowadays Im enjoying ambergris in Dior Ambre Nuit.
I agree with your sentiments entirely....in light of this, could you perhaps review this old thread and see whether it still deserves to be on this forum?
Good choice…very unique. Loved my time with coromandel.
Was also ging to suggest Penhaligon's Sartorial .
Others may disagree but Ive always been careful with TL in office situations....its just too damn sexy.
It really sends out that full on clubbing vibe....(let's hit the toilets and do some...
A masterpiece for those times when you choose not to be subtle.
Very true...strawberrynet has free shipping almost always but i dont see it carried on their site...i used to buy the gel version from them. Maybe its a matter of just waiting. Thanks for your help.
Any online site you can recommend (preferably US) that doesn't charge an arm and a leg on shipping overseas….First in Fragrance is about 25 euros to singapore, premiere avenue is 45 euros which costs...
Thanks hednic.....they charge 50 usd to ship overseas on a product that costs 46 usd....they are just taking the piss :)
I might have to call them and see what options are possible.
Ohh, really? I thought tl was a bit bad boy...lol.
Now im really intrigued.
Was reading a review here where someone likened it to bringing a bouquet of flowers into a petrol station.
Or is amazon still my only hope? Can amazon vendors be trusted? Ive only bought stuff sold and fulfilled by amazon in the past not from their affiliates....i would be annoyed if i ended up copping a...
After reading all the raves a la turin and now this,mive got NY on my to do list. 30ml is the ideal size and i wish all perfume came with that option.
Im a fan of creed bdp it used to be my signature for years....does ib fall in the same ballpark roughly?
This has been on my radar for a while.....if i LOVE tuscan leather, what are my chances of liking K10?
Unreasonable question i know, but still.....
I like all the descriptions although i cant vouch for their accuracy.....however people may have different frames of reference....one persons walk by the sea may differ from anothers.
Alternately, find new friends.
A topic Ive been interested in myself. However Ive been disappointed by both Tam Dao (meh!) and Bois des Isles (too weak on my skin).
Does anyoe know of a fragrance that uses mysore sandal as its...
Did not see any votes for Guerlain Derby....I wouldve placed it in my top 3.
+1....Coromandel, out of all ive tested.
Quality, not quantity, is what i say to myself as a means of consolation.
I liked the nasomatto website with gualtieri swinging across the page on a chandelier....summed up the house's irreverence very nicely. This tries a bit hard though....lol.
I ordered a sample solely on the basis of the thread title and have to concur.
The only thing I wil add (at the risk of incriminating myself) is that the smell is like more of an...
Was going to start a new thread but saw this first.
Just received an order that I had made with them. Took about a week to get to Singapore.....order was accurately filled, well packed and 6...
I tried some Tom Ford White Suede and it felt very clean and elegant to the nose.
Im surrounded by heat and humidity all year around....have had outstanding results with Coromandel.
Do collectors use their fragrances till they are all gone and then hang on to the bottle....or does collecting mean laying off the juice as well?
Tried the Fumee´ classic and it's great, doesn't overdo the incense, just right....I thought it was perhaps a bit subtle on me and hence wondering if its the best choice.
Has anyone tried the...
Timid gals should wear a power scent just to balance things out.....try some tuscan leather.
Cant say im a fan of the brand name....sounds like a sleeping pill.
I have got some derby otw thanks to a split hosted by remik.
The Songe......this needs to go in the fraghead video.
But hey thank you all for the help.
Give Miller Harris La Fumee a sniff.
If thats considered balsamic or with amber then scratch it....i tried it and found it quite wearable in a really cool non extreme sort of way.
I might need to enquire about this at the guerlain boutique....any ideas...something tells me they won't have a clue either but I'd rather go prepared.
How do the perfume creators cope with this....you would think their sense of smell would be shot to hell....given the smells theyre surrounded by day in day out.
Well, I absolutely loved SL Daim Blond...went through a bottle many years ago....a voluptuous, apricot scented, soft leather if I remember correctly....if Kinize lie somewhere between Daim Blond and...
But i LOVE tuscan leather!
However, i nearly threwup when i smelled mona d'orio cuir on my arm. Cuir mauresque too left me unmoved. I mistakenly said in my OP that i liked the leather in...
Sold on Derby.
Re:Knize Gold .....all i can say is that i dislike chanel cuir de russie quite a bit; the leather smells a bit like shiny vinyl couch to me....in light of this, do you think Knize...
I hear you....what confused me is that one reviewer reckons sahara noir is the replacement for tom ford amber absolute.
Thats why i wanted to check if it had any similarity to opus vi since thats...
Both are masculine as helll....different ingredients.
Have tested Derby and its wonderful....i could wear it everyday for months on end.
Havent tried Knize Gold.....bit wary of leathers since...
If i ever lose my phone, i want you to find it. :)
Havent tested Sahara Noir but read all reviews.....frankincense heavy....replacement for TF Amber Absolute.
Tried Opus VI today and like it a lot.....but thats amber and frankincense too, maybe...
One of the most unique and pleasing masculine scents to my nose.....i once used a 200ml bottle everyday for a year till i emptied it. Never got bored.
I once had a problem with a brand new bottle of musc ravageur (leaky sprayer) and the folks at malle sent me a brand new replacement. When i asked them to have their other bottle picked up from my...
I had a sniff and a try of ispahan oud the other day....and its right up there with armani prive oud royal in my book.
Hope its not a misprint.....hehe.....i'd be interested in having this in a roll on version....must ask...
19 euro for 5ml.....and thats with vat. After deducting tax it could be 15 euro....id imagine thats a pretty awesome price for a chance to try BA....what say you guys?
Plus 5ml might be all you...
Occam's Razor to the rescue...yes, of course.
Cheers.....i dont think the interviewer thought of asking her my question.....that sort of thing usually make them squirm.....but a nice read nonetheless.
I agree....just bought my first split....a tom ford private blend.....i'd say not having the original bottle does diminish the experience around 25% or so.....but im willing to admit its all in my...
We're pretty much on the same page here.
To some extent, yes, although it's still conjecture. But it's up to an individual how much info they willingly provide. I also never like to talk about where im going on vacation. But thats another...
Her name sounded interesting and so did one of her creations, bombay bling.....so i googled her...looks like an indian lady you would bump into in new delhi.....not one of johannes vermeer's...
That is an interesting dynamic and the one that i am referring to as well. Not that it matters very much, but do you think she might now resent the fact that you can afford a fragrance that she...
Also....i suspect the reasons people put down some serious coin for an esoteric fragrance is the (often correct) assumption that not everyone will be wearing it.
If everone smelled like Rogers...
Having given this some thought, I think I would be more amenable to sharing fragrance info with strangers I will not see again....but not casual work colleagues.
I simply do not want them piecing...
That's very well put....and probably how I should have framed my original post.
