I could... smell that
I would commission Ben Affleck to do it, particularly with slept-in dress shirt look in Gone Girl. It's an odd choice, but I think his image would be congruous with that of Kouros.
If you were in a position to advise a celebrity as to what fragrance they should wear, what matches would you make? I offer the following:
Prince William - Oxford & Cambridge
George Clooney -...
S.N.S Herning, Buttero, Drake's, Crockett & Jones, Carmina, Pure Blue Japan, Bresciani, Maison Kitsuné
Save up to get something you will want to wear, don’t settle. Too bad Temple of Jawnz closed their MTM operation.
Belatedly, I’d like to mention Suit Supply. It’s slightly out of the desired price range, but I think they’re the best in town for what they offer at <$500.
Formal and casual: P.Johnson. I think aesthetically his style is closest to my ideal (sans the ghastly casual shoe/cotton suit combo). Magically, if I could have a handful of suits occupying my...
On the contrary, a black suit is the safest attire for a groom. Consider the fact that you may be looking back at your wedding photos with your grandchildren. Do you really want to explain your...
Dimly lit bars where smoke and trouble share the air. Eau des Iles. What say you?
If you don’t know who Audrey Hollander is, keep safesearch on. Redhead in Bed in name is apt, but the actual scent isn’t. I think the dirty honey of Miel de Bois would be so sexy on this dirty honey.
Mazzolari Lui would be another contender.
What would be its equivalent?
Time is obviously not considered a factor in this exercise.
I say Fumidus.
Mazzolari Lui? Fumidus?
Here’s what the following are after in their choice of fragrance:
Ben Affleck, slightly bitter opening.
George Clooney, beauty masquerading as beast.
Joaquin Phoenix pines for a concoction...
Here’s your definitive answer.
Carnal Flower? Nah… 1000 deserves mention.
^^ + 1 on Silver
She wears Carnal Flower.
What do you think he’s wearing these days?
Aomassai – the most spectacular transition from gourmand to woods in perfumery.
Borneo - juxtaposition of cocoa and patchouli, it’s like a more complex Angel.
Coze - it’s a meditation on...
Keep the fragrance, trade the girl.
I’ll go Borneo. You?
The answer is simple: Constant wear over time.
1. Why the hell are you washing them off?
2. Time = Change.
3. I mainly wear the fragrances I don’t like.
What do you think? I can totally see someone like a Zooey Deschanel, Diane Kruger or Sophie Marceau wearing it. I know if I got a whiff of it off a girl on the street, it would intrigue me.
I look forward to reading it.
I’ll disagree. I get sweetness. It‘s not harsh. My mustard comparisons are fairly accurate. There’s some green in there, to be certain, but it is also the most mustard like of any scent that I can...
Not even one response to this fantasy question? As you can see, I have put a fair bit of work into this.
You are to come up with your own niche house. The minimum number of fragrances is 5, the maximum is 10. You have every perfumer at your disposal (exclusivity contracts are suspended). Any perfumer/s!...
I still have Dulcis in Fundo on from yesterday. They seem to be tenacious. These new ones don’t pique my interest, though.
If you have to ask, don’t do it.
Of course I did.
Fresh: Philosykos - coconut growing on fig tree.
Forlorn: Black Orchid - the individual parts collectively morph into a confused and complex coconut.
What are you doing overlooking PUH?
As blasphemous as it is, Mitsouko.
You’ve got your condiments confused. The answer we’re looking for is mustard. Think about that.
Prepare to be disappointed.
You can limit your scope to just this one. It’s fantastic.
You are describing Jubilation XXV.
Jubilation XXV is certainly not that. The scent of dried fruit is quite prominent.
I only procure samples from TPC. I don’t consider LS an option. They are nowhere near as flexible as TPC on the sizing front.
It can take anywhere between 2-4 weeks. If they don’t have something in, they usually send you a card to notify you. It’s a shame their database isn’t up to date enough to reflect this prior to the...
How long do you people keep them for? You’re definitely not keeping them for more than a few weeks. I place large orders, but they always spoil.
It’s definitely a case of caveat emptor. As a frequent purchaser of Perfumed Court scents, I have to say that I find little fault with the scents that are shipped out to me. The issue starts after...
I expect some MKK and Secretions Magnifique responses. IMO she’d wear, the one and only, Kouros.
Miel de Bois.
a couple of D.S & Durga fragrances.
Seriously, check out the Etat Libre d’Orange range. They’re inexpensive and are an interesting first foray into niche. Personally, I fear you won’t care for your ADG in a few years time. That time of...
What do you smell? Can you think of any fragrance similar (without delving into the flankers)?
Iris Silver Mist
Encens et Lavande
While I have moved on from these types of scents some years ago, I have to say that the difference is far from being negligible. L’Eau D’Issey is much more complex and interesting than the Armani....
I’m fortunate to have osmanthus in my frontyard and a pomelo tree in my backyard. Perfumers will never capture their dynamic and ethereal qualities. Sillage would also be a problem with osmanthus if...
1. Green Irish Tweed
2. Royal Scottish Lavender
3. Orange Spice
5. Green Valley
I don’t know why, but I’ve always imagined Bond smelling like Amway’s Bois d’Azur.
Anthousa Fig & Vetiver
- green and woody
Christopher Brosius, Pierre Bourdon
- The real-to-life compositions of the former with the ‘catchiness’ of the latter.
