That would be the two scents I never, ever tire of..
I picked mine up from The Perfumed Court. The sprayer on those 2.5ml bottles pack a punch. Definitely way too strong for Puredistance M. I'd HIGHLY recommend treading lightly once you receive it,...
Puredistance M was just entirely too much for me. Maybe it was the the sprayer on the 2.5ml decant I have and it just put out way too much. Next time I am feeling ballsy enough to wear it, I'll be...
It's funny reading this now, my girlfriend said I smell like "Apple Jacks" when I wore it over the weekend (not the first time I wore it around her). She loves it though, it's a win/win for me. I...
Pretty excited to receive my sample pack and try these out.. Who doesn't like a sample pack?! :D
Rock the vote!
This is my protocol. Best way and also convenient not carrying a full bottle with you as you make your way to the restroom.
MDCI Invasion Barbare.. SotD&E
Favorites: Vanilla, Leather, Lavender, Cocoa, Cedar, Vetiver, Pineapple, Black Currant, Sandalwood
Least Favorites: Excessive Pepper! Excessive Civet! These are both killers to me. There is...
Great thread and interesting perspectives, theories and facts. I, myself, find a woman's natural scent quite intoxicating (not one of those unbathed for days types) with fragrance as complimentary...
-MDCI Invasion Barbare
-and I just realized how impossible it would be for me to choose a third and final!
(Gucci Pour Homme II/ Creed Virgin Island Water/Viktor & Rolf...
GPHII I love, so I am partial and biased... Though, I'd say grab both if you can! You wouldn't be disappointed with yourself :)
Only Bond's I enjoy:
Brooklyn (own full bottle)
I Love NY for All
Andy Warhol Silver Factory
Gucci Pour Homme II is definitely my favorite. Tea for Two is nice, but GPHII is the one I always go for.
-Pleasure I get from smelling them on me, it brightens my mood
-The experience/journey of discovering new fragrances
-Added bonus: Smelling great, receiving compliments, and girlfriend nuzzling...
Good piece of info for everyone to keep in mind.
I don't know, it's hit or miss with the younger age bracket and Fahrenheit.. I don't wear this one for approval, I wear it when I'm in "that mood"
Looking around to see if anyone has Guerlain's Spiritueuse Double Vanille and Tonka Imperiale they would like to find a new home for. Please PM me if you do or know of a place where I might be able...
Spicebomb was the highlight of 2012 releases for me.
I have three different bottles, all different sizes and all different dates and formulations.
In the youngest bottle I have, the petrol doesn't play as big of a role as I would like, but...
If it's true, sign me up.. but I'm not holding my breath.
I did this with a smaller split bottle of MI (it was in my glove compartment for at least a month and a half during the summer) I've since sprayed it recently and it's still a champ and packs a...
Honestly, I'm not surprised at all. I haven't had such an immediate liking for a frag in a long time. Once the opening is done being all schitzo, it really works its way in to a beauty. This is...
Pure Leather... I'm hooked. I smell bits and pieces of almost every A*Men frag in it. It's like a carnival of notes.
Grabbing to complete my Mugler collection, no questions asked, but also really looking forward to comparing with A*Men, which I love. Not going to lie, the varied reviews have also hyped up my...
Cool story, bro.
Dior Homme Intense
(Office Environment but casual)
Lately, I've been using:
YSL Rive Gauche
Dior Homme/Dior Homme Intense
YSL La Nuit De L'Homme
Creed Virgin Island Water
Had my bottle of GIT and GPH II in my bag, separated and rolled up in clothing. This was in my overnight bag. When I picked it up and placed it on my desk, somehow (I guess from walking) the...
Green Irish Tweed.
I've done this with Aventus as well but I wasn't called out as badly as you were man. Honestly, I'm enjoying YSL La Nuit for the workplace very much. Don't feel self conscious about fogging people...
I feel like Aventus could be one many lists in this post. Get's a lot of love and hate, it seems.
Dislike/Just doesn't do it for me:
Egoiste (and Platinum)
You're covered with this purchase. The fact that a 14 day return policy is included should put you at ease as well. I wouldn't stress it. Hopefully it's a great batch... ;)
I get the urge once in a while but find myself just reaching for a very non-complex, simple frag. Just to feel basic, if only for a little bit :) Nothing wrong with switching things up here and...
Thumbs up! Two of them, even!
Easily my most complimented and most sampled by anyone who stops by my place and scopes out my wardrobe. It just smells good and it creates a nice cloud around you for all to enjoy. No conspiracy. ...
Quite frequently, but the biggest standouts to me were backstage at a metal show (pretty well known band), one of the members sprayed up with A*Men by strict orders of his significant other, she...
Interesting read and good find. Feels like the author though already had their preconceived judgments and it really shone through in the writing.
Thanks for scanning and posting, Brian.
Right now, Pure Coffee and Pure Malt... 4-8months from now, I wouldn't say any of them, to be honest. I think Mugler is going to pull through with another hefty re-release of Pure Malt and possibly...
I just got my new bottle from fragrancenet yesterday and the initial 5-10 minutes is a heavy dose of lime/citrus.. Following that. it tames down in to a very smooth blend of the coconut/lime/rum...
I wish there weren't any inconsistencies as well, that's for sure.. It seems like Creed has ironed out the batch issues pretty well with Aventus as of late. Thankfully, I haven't ran in to any bad...
Aventus, excellent choice! Can't wait to here how that one goes over
Fahrenheit, for me..
Tonka Imperiale yumyums!
Aventus and VIW
Haven't had a bad experience yet. I've used them 5+ times for things as basic as low cost designer frags up to Creeds, including Aventus. Juice has always been good.
Best bet is where you are (basenotes) and hopefully there are some people with finished bottles and no longer need their caps. Good luck with this, I know it's not the easiest thing to acquire,...
I'm a sucker for Tam Dao
what hep said.. but what i find myself doing just for a quick pick-me-up is to spray something that has a lot of positive memories tied to it.. seems to take my mind back to the memories associated...
Beyond the Rack is legit with all their products, I have purchased many things from them in the past. I'm not sure how much of a sale they will have on Creed but it's always worth a look.
Received with 112216 as well and the juice smells identical, if not better/more potent than the bottle I already had.
I spit out my Red Bull at work as soon as I saw this response lmao
As mentioned previously, Aventus seems to be one that gets the best response. Wouldn't say dropper, but it'll get her going. ...
As opposed to making a new thread, I figured I would pull up and re-visit this and see if anyone else has since sampled the EDT and EDP side by side, and their thoughts? I have sampled the EDT only...
Wow.. That's just awful.. I really hope no one out there seriously considers buying from this person.
Spicebomb by Viktor & Rolf (15)
L'Instant de Guerlain pour Homme by Guerlain (13)
A*Men Pure Malt by Thierry Mugler (12)
L'Instant de Guerlain Pour Homme Extreme by Guerlain (12)
Midnight in Paris EDP, hands down.
Definitely not a powdery cocoa.. To me, it is kind of a dirty cocoa, the way it's blended with everything else. Still an amazing cocoa drydown.
Got my order placed 10:15 this morning for a bottle.. Really wish they unleashed Pure Malt as well!
This is probably the most intense sample I've ever tried, I felt like I caught a buzz after taking one whiff of it.
As mentioned above, Pure Malt would be an obvious suggestion, but Frapin 1697...
New Haarlem I just do not like one bit. Such a heavy maple syrup experience is what my nose gets from it. I only own Brooklyn and have kept it. The only other bottles I'd consider:
New York Oud...
Pure Malt > A*Men > ToF > Pure Havane > Pure Coffee
You can wear it any time.. In fact I feel like I can wear my EDP any time, so you should be set with the EDT... Enjoy it :)
Very interesting! I'd be very interested in seeing what some of the colorful and creative personalities on here come up with!
I wish they would have purchasing limits on Limited Edition fragrances to allow everyone a fair chance at getting a bottle themselves. Like limit it to one per customer for the first week or two,...
Pure Virgin Island Malt
Bring back Pure Malt, dammit! I'd suggest everyone picking up a bottle of this though.. I'm definitely going to try and grab one.
Rive Gauche PH
Green Irish Tweed
Midnight in Paris EDP
I seem to be super sensitive with anything heavy amber. I have to take it easy with application of Prada APH, even during cooler weather. I'd imagine it projecting like a mofo in the heat,...
I love the retro bottle and glad it's back around.. Now question is, will it be possible to get my hands on it without breaking the bank?!
Wanted: Looking to swap for decants/samples of:
La Nuit de L'Homme Le Parfum
Noir de Noir
Thanks for looking :)
MiP EDP is best bang for your buck. Get the 125ml (4.2ox) for less than $50.
As far as outright comparison, I currently only have DH vintage and MiP EDP and it's really a toss up for me. Two...
Creed's - Aventus, GIT, MI
Gucci Pour Homme II
L'Instant de Guerlain Extreme
These have all been successful for me as far as dates/dating...
For the coming months: TdH EDT
Any cooler type months: MiP EDP
I do shower with Dove Men Soap Bars, use Dove Men deodorant and also own a bottle of Drakkar. It hasn't jumped out at me yet, but I know what I will be testing when I get home. :)
Love the juice and love the bottle. Overall, I just love sweeter fragrances. I wear Spicebomb quite often, love the smell on me and receive positive comments on it from others as well. Different...
Definitely Brooklyn followed by Fire Island
Since she seemed to like AdG...
Gucci Pour Homme II, D&G Light Blue, Cartier Roadster Sport..
But also, have you given Green Irish Tweed or Millesime Imperial a test around her? Aventus also...
Lately it's been:
Gucci Pour Homme II
Midnight in Paris EDP
Gucci Pour Homme II
If you are truly tied on all of these, and only these, go with Code 1000%
I think they're both kind of pricey, but TV is an EDP form and one spray lasts for eternity. I still feel even TV is more bang for the buck; as long as you go with the great split price here, 50ml...
While they both have a home in my wardrobe, I actually did a full on side by side comparison, over a 12 hour time frame.. Tobacco Vanille just loves my skin.. I feel like there's something about PH,...
Just had an opportunity to sample this and I really like their take on this edition of Brit, which I own and love. I was debating on picking it up. A unique "summer edition" frag; it definitely...
+1, big fan of Roadster Sport.. Haven't heard of this Limited Edition though.. Is it LE bottle or is the juice different?
I had gifted my Armani Code to my father and MIP EDP has been a very safe replacement for it. I only smell the resemblance in through the opening. It then dries down to its own identity. Really...
Just sprayed some Antidote for the evening; I'll always keep some around. I bought mine on eBay a while ago for a pretty decent price, but it was the 2.5oz
OOOOOOO.. And intriguing sounding summer edition fragrance! The mentioning of the aquatic/cocoa combo really caught my attention.
Speaking from experience, I have broken out of that zone twice. Both had loved a specific scent on me which they just could not stop smelling on me; one expressing even that it was a turn on (that...
Next purchase will be a full bottle of Aventus, possibly a flacon. Going to have to resist impulses for a month and reward myself with it ;)
Great plan.. Strong memory association and triggers with the sense of smell. I say go with Burberry Brit. That one was a killer for me with my former lady friend ;)
OMG LMFAO,,, I'm dying over here!!!! :D
EDIT: On-topic, my guess is Aventus!
Sounds cool Brian, where at? I just moved so everything has been a bit crazy and still unpacking etc, so might not be able to make this one, but would definitely be up for the next time.
The first few wears all I could focus on was the cocoa. As time progressed and I wore it a few more days, I began to smell the entire composition, not just notes here and there. For me, the citrus...
Giving Midnight in Paris a testing, details to follow. Also, checking out other suggestions to see if I want to sample any others..
I'm sure you will not have any trouble finding a buyer here. I have a couple bottles already otherwise I would take it off your hands. If you aren't strapped for cash though I say hold on to it for...
Some great suggestions in here, thanks for all the replies and keep them coming! :) Looking a bunch of them up now
Out of those, TdH for sure
