  1. Re: Wearable chocolate/cacao/coffee gourmand fragrance advice

    So I managed to get a full wear of A*Men, I must say, I like it. It's not as chocolate'y as I expected but very sweet and somehow it is more than just a sugarbomb, very complex scent and lasts long...
  2. Wearable chocolate/cacao/coffee gourmand fragrance advice

    Gents,

    I'm already looking for something new for fall/winter, something with chocolate, coffee or cacoa. Must be readily available to sample and not overly expensive (so probably not niche)....

    Re: Looking for a new every-day fragrance.

    I know I tend to give my favorite as a suggestion alot, but Dior Fahrenheit comes to mind instantly.
    It opens pretty spicy (some report a petroleum note) but quickly settles into leather with...

    Re: What about ginger!?

    As previously mentioned, Dior Homme Sport has a very prominent ginger note.
  5. Re: Hello everyone, introduction and need suggestions!

    Fahrenheit by Dior. But try before you buy and do not overapply in warm weather please.

    Re: rescue me from body spray

    Boss Orange does smell a little like oranges (not fresh orange but more like a bitter orange peel), but does not really have orange in it. You can try the Boss in motion alternative (as someone...

    Re: Fahrenheit smells feminine

    My Fahrenheit got some rest the last 2 weeks due to hot temperatures. But after reading this thread I applied half a spritz to my wrist this evening. I now get the petroleum note some are reporting....

    Re: The Best Cheap Fragrances Ever?

    Tabac Eau De Cologne (or After Shave) is pretty nice. Denim is decent too. Maybe Paco Rabanne pour homme?
  11. Re: What hairstyling product (wax/pomade/gel/etc.) do you use?

    So what are exactly the characteristics of Brylcreem? The classic in the red tub.
    I suppose it gives shine but does it give alot of texture like a gel or more a soft effect like a pomade or wax. And...

    Re: Fahrenheit smells feminine

    I can surely imagine ladies pulling off wearing some scents marketed for men. However, Fahrenheit? No way! It's just manliness in a bottle, wondefull stuff. I also do not get the gasoline / petroleum...

    I have thick hair as well. I know from experience that a haircut like that is very hard to pull off with thick hair. Sure you could go to the barber, get your hair thinned, but no product will keep...

  18. Re: The Joy of Alum - Or Who Needs Aftershave Balms?

    I do not use alum as an after-shave but use it on my fingers to help stretch the skin (so you can get a hold of the skin even on the soap/cream) and versus nicks and weepers. By the way, here...

    Re: Weather and Fragrance

    Only in extreme heat I tend to pick something that will not turn bad because of high humidity and sweat. For the rest, I mix it up, Fahrenheit in summer and aquatics in winter, it's possible.

    Re: what are some fruity/sweeter scents?

    I sampled Paco Rabanne Black XS today and it has a strong strawberry note in it on top of the praline. Not for daytime summer wear though imo.
    If you're more into citrus, try Laura Biagiotti ROMA...

    Re: Which frags have the worst drydowns?

    Re: Am I missing something about Polo's frags?

    Polo Blue is quite nice, gets the most compliments and ladies like it, but it's linear and not that interesting. I like it over Polo Explorer. Others I haven't tried yet.

    Re: Marine/oceanic vs Aquatic??

    For me it's a matter how 'salty' the scent is.

    For example, for example to me, Kenzo Homme and Nautica Voyage have a hint of salt in it and are less fruity than others (like Bvlgari, Mexx Men,...
