After 2-3 sprays at most from a new bottle, everything is usually fine
It is never the outer presentation, just the content, that gave me consistent enjoyment about fragrance- if I do keep the bottle, its is for protective uses alone and regarding the fragrance from...
SOTE: CK Obsession Night
Speaking only on what could be personally noticed: the EDP easily
Perhaps also O de Lancome, Cabotine de Gres
Tough choice, due to liking both extremely much, but agreeing that the EDP version of Boucheron PH is a slight notch up in terms of almost any enjoyable feature
As cliched as it might sound- first though was Aramis Havana or even the now discontinued Escada pour Homme, since they both combine tobacco with boozyness, also a hint of leather and of slightly...
Generally (although the size and/or rate of growth may still lead to exception that confirm the rule eventually) only keeping in my collection the fragrances I enjoy wearing and not just simply...
Perhaps also Gucci pour Homme II, YSL pour Homme, Boss Elements Aqua, Kenzo Homme
Ed Hardy Man
Derby all the way
Perhaps also Jaipur Homme EDP
Happy birthday and congratulations for such a great fragrance choice
While rightfully and deservedly acknowledged, respected within BN and other fragrance connoisseur circles, communities, forums etc. both online and offline, not much of a success outside a quite...
No idea about the compliments, but my personal favorites include, in no particular order: Grey Vetiver, Black Orchid, Noir de Noir, Man, Man Extreme, Noir, Noir Extreme
Welcome to Basenotes!
Seconding especially TF Black Orchid.
And just like in the case of Black Orchid, although marketed as feminine, actually quite unisex and successfully covering most of...
Generally, on longer trips, simply taking a cosmetic bag with me (nothing fancy, but still roomy and well compartmentalized enough to have some more or less insulated spaces that can adsorb shocks...
Perhaps you might like to test Azzaro Visit as a lighter option and CK One Shock (this latter showing a richer, slightly spcier and mor tobacco-dominated involuntary resemblance with...
Congratulations indeed from me too.
Since the house of Penhaligons was mentioned, even at the risk of being subjective (and quite likely wrong), personally get the sensation of a sparkling...
Endymion and Opus are highly rewarding choices, while Sartorial was recently recommended to me by quite a few of my highly fragrance knowledgeable, treu fragrance connoisseur friends (whom I trust...
A few more sampling suggestions that will most likely be affordable, since almost every fragrance stores provides readily available tester bottles and/or small samples of these anyway, could also...
Perhaps also Creed Original Vetiver, CDG 2 Man, Penhaligons Opus 1870, Eau Sauvage Parfum, TF Grey Vetiver
Perhaps you might also like to test: Horizon by Guy Laroche, YSL pour Homme, ADG Essenza.
Likable and inoffensive, possibly also with very high chances to be complimented- but by far not my Paco Rabanne favorite (up to the point of liking even One Million and One Million Intense more)
With apologies for a belated reply, actually not really unremarkable: loved it for being very classy in a simple way, yet also natural and understated- thus ideal for summer, but also versatile...
Zara Collection Man
SOTE: Zara Collection Man
Thanks for the recommendation, will definitely look it up
Perhaps Ambre Sultan by Serge Lutens
Perhaps also Quasar Adventure- for a banana leaf note
Tabac Original EDT
Not to my nose and on my skin, quite the opposite actually
Something like Mugler Cologne, Rive Gauche pour Homme or Gucci pour Homme II would be among my first, likeliest options
Comme une Evidence Homme Green
From a non-expert take on this- the actual fragrance on skin differs minimally, but agreeing that the performance of the newer version falls below the one of its vintage counterpart
No specific requests here either, but my fragrance tastes are already quite well-known anyway
Another fan of Man2 here
Bois du Portugal is one of the best performers so far personally encountered
Woods of Windsor Bergamot&Neroli
Nothing particular, just the regular SOTD/SOTE
Maybe also Givenchy Very Irresistible, Dior DHI, Guerlain LIDGE
Personally thinking (at the risk of being wrong) that a good benchmark for determining the skills of a perfumer is if he releases an affordable fragrance, also destined to be comparatively less...
Niche, designer or any categorization like this does matter very little, as long as you enjoy the fragrance-thanks for posting and sharing your fragrance impressions with us
Quite versatile during the entire daily schedule- have worn it so far (quite frequently) both during daytime and for evenings/nights out etc., never had any problem with it, this fragrance remaining...
Too many memories to mention here- but it is not always related to events, sensations, thoughts, ideas etc. once experienced while wearing a fragrance alone, furthermore, each single perceptible note...
Perhaps my favorite TDH- both compared to the regular EDT and its flankers- while also considering it appropriate for any age group
Even as the amount of fragrances in the collection grew, the top 5 or 10 favorites out of these remained largely unchanged
For some reason, belonging to extreme minority not liking this fragrance.
While objectively acknowledging that its is well made, has quality ingredients and a history behind it, subjectively...
Tried it 1-2 times and most, enjoyed it quite a bit-like a more gourmand, but not overly sugary, just more moderately sweet spicy and more modern version of Caractere. Basically, quite similar to...
Bleu EDP already sounds like a great choice
AHS out of these two
Perhaps La Nuit Le Parfum could work
Hardly ever encountered anyone in public places, streets etc. whose SOTD choice was that stunning, that I simply could not help asking. But if it happened, would most likely bring myself to ask-...
Survey duly completed- without wanting to influence the survey and/or its results too much, neutral to mildly positive about it, but on certain conditions and depending on lots of...
Getting some slight similarities from Sir Irisch Moos, Acca Kappa Cedro, Old Spice Whitewater, Agua Brava Sea Power
Shalimar EDP simply has the richer, more dense, more lush vanilla to my nose
Christian Lacroix Nuit pour Homme
Your selection and preferences still remain awesome, as they do successfully cover some of the best (possibly future) classics and also more, daring, avant-garde, state of the art creations in the...
Perhaps also Chanel Allure Homme Sport Extreme, Dior Homme Parfum, Solo Loewe Extreme, YSL pour Homme Haute Concentraion, TF Grey Vetiver EDP, Boucheron pour Homme EDP could be worth testing
Also adding Acqua di Genova EDC and Carthusia EDC
With fewer sprays and especially for cooler and/or damper summer evenings, quite possibly yes
Tending to second/agree with the opinion that the antiperspirant effect may not be optimal or perhaps even nonexistent
Muschio Bianco by Acca Kappa- while not 100% designer, still mostly available and delivering quite good performance for designer prices, as well as getting a comparatively strong musk notes from both...
Still good, still quite nuanced and richly, enjoyably spicy, warm, sensual, impressively standing out
If there is going to be a petition to bring back the 2008 version of DHS back, would be glad to sign it: having enjoyed its bracing freshness, nuanced (not overdone) lightness, with quite a bit of...
SOTE: Woods of Windsor Cedar Woods
Cheapies like the vast majority of Coty fragrances (not the premium and/or vintage gems sold under the same brand name at some point) do include certain underrated decent choices, that might yield...
Perhaps also Eton College Collection by Taylor`s of Old Bond Street
May be also (seconding the recommendations if these fragrances were already mentioned) Acqua di Parma Colonia Assoluta, ADG Essenza, Chanel pour Monsieur Concentree, Eau Sauvage Parfum
Before I seriously got into this hobby, Adidas Classic/Classic Blue, Adidas Dynamic/Dynamic Pulse, Oriflame New Spirit, Paco Energy by Paco Rabanne, Salvador Dali pour Homme and Drakkar Noir being...
By the way, some of the most animalistic fragrances worn by me while going out were (in no particular order) Versace l`Homme, Francesco Smalto pour Homme, Marbert Homme, Drakkar Noir, Fendi Uomo,...
SOTE: Lancetti Uomo Concentree
As long as there is still a slim chances to find vintage formulations at affordable rates (almost impossible at first, although not as unlikely as it sounds) then yes
Congratulations for your choice and enjoy!
May have tested it a few times quite long ago and enjoyed it on each occasion- but then again, having been into powerhouses anyway, the likeliness to...
From this list, Heritage and Habit Rouge share a roughly similarly highly ranked top spot of personal preference
Sorry to hear this- his great knowledge, combined with a vast of high quality visuals about a house of Guerlain surely was a wonderful, fascinating way to promote and inform about this house, rather...
Intense, Cologne, Sport in no particular order
Among many others and considering that most of these could b technically unisex, although in theory limited to one gender alone:
Shalimar EDP, Dior DHI, Caron pour un Homme, Eau des Baux, Jaipur...
In addition to Grey Vetiver, seconding especially Man, Man Extreme, Nor de Noir, Black Orchid
If it is enjoyable and it simply works- why not?
Maybe also Glacier by Oriflame
Perhaps also Christian Lacroix Ambre or Yves Rocher Voile d`Ambre- both with additional gourmand notes as well
The Eau de Parfum is also a good option- very good sillage and longevity throughout each testing, as well as wonderful fragrance composition in general
SOTE: C&E Sienna
In no particular order and including most price, gender-related, note etc. categories: Le Dix by Balenciaga, No. 19 EDP, Opium Eau d`Orient, Eau des Baux, C&E Sandalwood, GFT Spanish Leather, Creed...
Yves Rocher Poire Caramel
May have confessed it a few times, but have to confess yet again that I find myself increasingly drawn towards the austere dry chypre beauty of Chanel No. 19 EDP, as well as male/unisex counterparts...
Perhaps you might like to start testing the Eternity flankers, while afterwards just settle for something or move on from there
Love its vintage and, in fact, any version of it- cannot think of any particular Italian shower gel, body wash etc. brand smelling even remotely similar to this, perhaps there might be a slight...
Most likely (in no particular order): Ungaro III, Lancetti Uomo, one or more Christian Lacroix fragrances
In no particular order, preferring 1 to 10 ranking system, rather than a hierarchy between them:
Bentley for Men Intense- n/a (same ranking used for anything unknown to me/untested by me so far) ...
A very good price for a decent fragrance in its own right
