It opens nice but becomes too feminine and floral shortly after.
Nice top notes tho. Could see it more of a "blue" bottle release
I own Lumiere Blanche and Panorama.
Both are very good scents. Panorama doesnt last as long but its a very nice modern green scent.
I find LB to be a great almond milk scent.
I am looking...
Thank you. That makes sense.
www.checkfresh.com does note that batch codes repeat themselves every 10 years. According to you mine is a 2002, which would explain the 2012 on checkfresh
Any theories behind it?
My only assumption is that the batch codes and the sites that check them are not aligned on this one
D&G BY Man
Just got my bottle of D&G by from another basenoter.
Its been a long time since i smelled this amazing fragrance.
I remembered it smelling slightly spicier than the bottle i got. Similar thing...
Is it going to be a daily wearer? or just a fragrance in the collection, or even a special occasion fragrance?
Its also really important to know his age. Freshman vs senior makes a big different...
I cant really recall what live jazz smells like and at 50$ a bottle its a pretty safe blind buy.
I recently changed /replaced a big part of my casual-summer-day fragrances, and i am in process...
I thought creed pure white is a nice take on a traditional edc.
I am actually looking for one also. Must last longer than 2 hours.
Does Malle BC takes the win?
scent of peace by bond no 9
Cartier roadster sport
I got it as a gift. It's a very nice green clean citrusy scent
Smells very similar
His name was prorock2013
I bought other fragrances from him as well
The Macy's on 34th street carries it.
Yes I did read recent comments about "tester" bottles being fake etc, however if you continue to research you will in fact find people mentioning that tester...
I bought TF Tuscan Leather and Azure Lime.
About 100 each with 15$ shipping from Russia.
Was concerned at first because the Tuscan Leather had "Tester" stamped on it.
Both are 100% real. Took...
Both are very nice.
Dark rum is a full bottle worthy IMO.
It's somewhere on my list
I think CNH is similar to Bois 1920 Dolce di Giorno, which btw is a fantastic scent all around.
Try both. If price isn't an issue i prefer the Bois1920.
The ferragamo is a great scent. I got a...
Bois 1920 - Verde di Mare
Bois 1920 - dolce di giorno
Both are beautiful summer scents. Verde smells to me like a the first day going to the beach when it's warm and nice out.
Fresh spray of leather oud during the summer, while being locked in a small car?
Not a good scenario.
I like leather oud but it's not the time of the year to wear it
I thought medicinal, but honestly to me its more on the soapy / spa spectrum.
Its not a powdery soapy scent, but it definitely smells like a high end spa, or a very luxurious hotel if that makes...
Yeah I am. Idk if the price is justified but that's a whole different discussion
I grabbed my bottle today and I'm happy about it.
Lasts pretty good so far also. I sprayed it on at the store around 4pm. I can still smell it
Yeah I got to the store around 4pm, I applied two sprays and I still smell it very strong
I did not own windsor.
I smelled it once a long time ago. Can't recall
Just got my bottle as well. Walking home wit it as we speak.
I sprayed some at the store, and so far I'm enjoying it a lot.
It's very classy and good for daily wear.
It has a lot of character yet...
I have OV and MI.
SMW didn't really do it for me, same goes for the royal exclusives.
I also have TF - NP and azure lime (incase it would be suggested)
While BdP is a fuller scent I found it...
While i wait for my bottle of Royal Mayfair i told myself i can only buy one (maybe two) fragrances in the meantime.
While options are limitless these are the ones i found myself thinking about...
I regret buying noir extreme.
Has no place in my collection.
It's a very "shy" scent, like projection is weak and a better word to describe it would be thin.
The fragrance itself doesn't have much...
I got oud wood fragrance and face mask
i got a few samples when i got noir extreme from them.
i didnt ask it just came with it
I have the AdP and I do like it but it's very linear.
Reason I suggested PE is because it's all year around, every occasion and weather.
It smells very classy and upscale, but still has that...
Chanel platinum egoiste.
I was like 20 when I got my first bottle. Always kept one since.
Oud wood and london
Yeah it's insane.
I don't find it appealing
Well I reserved a 2.5oz bottle.
I will give it another sniff once the testers are in and hopefully be able to get an actual sample as well.
I am not sure what is RE. Royal exclusive you mean?
I smelled it today at the Madison store.
The SA only has an automizer for now. Testers will be in next week. They will have the bottles in 3 weeks give or take.
I think it's very nice. I can't...
Was just at the Malle boutique off Madison.
Picked up my first fragrance from the line- bois d'orange
While there the SA showed me their Oud release.
800$ for 50ml.
Smells very pungent and...
Creed Millesime Imperial
After a long wait due to being scared from all the weak batches etc
I decided to just got for it
Shares some notes with bond fire island
I blind bought it because it was cheap.
It's alright. I don't think I will wear it too often.
Anyone us any experience with this line?
Picked up a bottle of Amnesia from barneys.
Came out to be 55$ on sale, instead of 185.
It's a nice marine/ aquatic scent.
Definitely worth the price I...
RXR - Amnesia
A bunch of RXR / X-Ray line are 55$ on barneys warehouse.
I like PE for summer nights, but it's a great all year around. It's one of my go to's when I'm not sure about the occasion etc
NP is also great for any time. Very easy to wear and inoffensive.
does anyone here own both, or finds a reason to have both?
I have very little experience with Malle and xerjoff.
I have seen Kobe mentioned before for a neroli offering.
How's Nio and Kobe compare?
Unfortunately I found the creed to be a lot more "lemon" heavy than a nice green herbal neroli.
Not saying it's bad but it's not what I'm looking for
What makes you prefer the...
I am currently in search for a new neroli fragrance.
I am a big fan of TF NP; great smelling neroli but i think it doesnt last well on me.
Few weeks ago i got a chance to smell the new Malle....
The original ferragamo pour homme, is a beautiful smokey peach / fig scent.
Somewhat similar to boos 1920 dolce di giorno
I have been tempted to buy Vetiver Extraordinaire the past 3 visits to barneys NYC.
Every time i was steered away from it.
How does it wear during the summer heat
What are your top 5 new additions to your collection that were made with summer in mind?
I personally added a lot of Bois 1920. The whole line has a "vacation" feel to it.
1. Bois 1920 - Dolce...
As stated above, Oud Save the King is great.
While not ground breaking, it is a really well composed sweet oud scent.
It smells very high quality and classy.
The Triple Extrait was pretty good...
i think it beats the point of the fragrance
After a full day wear I find it very similar to the recent tom ford noir extreme.
Opening is nice, but the dry down is average plus.
So far the leather one is my favorite out of that...
Barney's did not have a bottle yet from what I saw but they had samples
I see. Thank you for clearing it up
Got a sample of it today from Barneys.
i got to say...it's a very nice smelling amber.
it doesn't have much "amber" feel to it like some of the popular ambers.
the notes are very well blended....
Creed - Acier Aluminium 75ml 99% full
Maison Francis Kurkdjian Oud Velvet Mood - 97% Full (with box)
Montale Aoud Melody 3.4oz 99%full
D&G pour Homme 2.5oz - 98% full
Escada - Vintage...
Yes the outer shell is a thin metal sheet.
Feels very cheap.
^ exactly my thoughts.
That is why I was disappointment from such a tamed release.
sprayed it at 8am. I can still smell it pretty good on me.
For a mainstream release it is very high quality,...
I think the regular noir was too niche for the mainstream.
This was the toned down fix.
I see where you get the spice bomb.
It's defenitly a crowed pleaser. Suitable for most occasions. Maybe...
Its not a bad scent. I would much rather wear it above the other ones.
I do like how it smells, but as a big tom ford fan i am a little disappointed.
Its too mainstream for a TF release. It comes...
I shouldve waited and not blind bought it.
It smells a lot better IMO than the said two, but what i was trying to say is that it smells mainstream and the two scents share some similarities.
Just got my bottle.
First thing that i dont like is the gold cap.
If it was metal it would be awesome, but the plastic cap feels very cheap.
Now for the smell:
So on the initial spray i...
I just it their regular oud last night.
I'm curious to see how this one smells
Tom Ford Noir Extreme.
Can't wait for it to arrive
L'artisan - Timbuktu
Nasomatto - Black afgano
i found velvet and cashmere to be very similar.
From your perspective, how would you describe the differences?
I only smelled them on paper. Minor differences to my nose
I like their regular oud a lot.
Its next on my list together with montale black aoud.
The thing is that to me, the regular Oud isnt oud focused but rather a composition.
The velvet oud...
Picked up a bottle of Velvet mood few days ago.
Very unique deep resinous - industrial like scent.
Gasoline laced scent. Smokey and very deep.
Complex and beautiful but very hard to pull off.
TF azure lime
Updated and sent pm
MFK - oud velvet mood
Dior - Leather Oud
Amouage - memoir man
In retrospective I should've bought more bottles.
It's available in duty free shops. Not sure if it's exclusive to a specific airport chain
I just picked up Dior homme Parfum at the delta terminal in JFK.
What a great scent.
I was never a fan of any of the other Dior Homme.
The original and the intense version were too lipsticky...
I find Oud Wood incredible.
Is it hyped? yes, unfortunately it is. In my opinion it takes away a little from the scent, but when not overdone, its a great scent.
Apom by MFk, to me smells similar
Citrus and anise hmm
I had Must de Cartier and i was not a fan of the anise there.
Happen to know if there are any similarities?
Got an offer to buy a bottle at a really good price.
Can't seem to find too much information or reviews about this one.
Has anyone tried it, and if so what are your thoughts?
I blind bought Palermo and received it today.
Its not mind blowing but its a very good summer scent.
I got to smell a couple from their line at Barneys, and they all smelled pretty linear to me....
I just bought the above online at a very good price.
I was reading that its similar to MFK's Oud scent, which i really like (in my buy list)
For those who have experience with the scent,...
No they are just not as "mainstream" aka crowd-pleasers as most scents.
Its not necessarily a bad thing. I mean, a Ferrari would be less appealing if it was an everyday car.
They arent bold scents,...
I agree that most of them are inflexible. Cologne and sycomore are probably the more flexible ones.
I don't consider them as challenging, but I don't see them as wearable as some stuff.
Check out no22
It's floral but I find it very wearable
Maison Francis Kurkdjian - Lumiere Noire Pour Homme
I think a lot of people are giving bond a hard time.
Yes it's gimmicky and over priced, but they make some really good scents.
I never got the wet dog accord until recently. I think Wall Street...
Its not about the price. Im just wondering if its worth it as in if its noticeably different than the EDT
So few days ago i got rid of my bottle of MiP EDT.
I liked the scent, but nothing more than that.
It didnt get too many wears. Something about the EDT just didnt smell rights to me.
I think chanel platinum egoiste or tom ford grey vetiver are very good choices.
They are both very high quality and can be worn year around. They fit every occasion and when I wear them I always get...
It's the application of it.
I get uncomfortable wearing two full sprays of it.
It's more tamed once dried down. I do like one full spray and it's good.
I have layered a little of TF Extreme...
I have a 3.4oz bottle.
I like it. Its nothing outstanding but a good go to smell.
Smelling from the bottle/ cap i do get the wet dog reference, but once you wear it and it dries down it shares some...
I want to take a small step back here and re-state something.
When i said smelling good, i meant fit in the common concept of smelling good.
A collection can consist of mainly mainstream...
I have tam dao also. Great smell
It's not that niche don't smell good. It's just that a lot of them go against the common perception of a good smell.
Same as in sushi where the general society...

I have BO and it doesnt get many wears.
The scent is beautiful but like some people have stated its very "out there"
It is not an easy one to wear. It will definitely make you stand out, but at...
