Guerlain Samsara, Ysl Paris and Kingdom by McQueen.
Marte Arte Battistoni, really close to Fahrenheit (but with no petrol).
Thank you so much. Current Aramis formulation is excellent (I've tryed it recently in London), just a tad less "animalic" and dirty but still warm, classy, sexy and powerful, anyway I have two 90's...
So hard, anyway probably this, 3 different type of fragrances for diverse "ambiences": Aramis by Aramis, Habit Rouge Edt vintage (the 90's formulation for instance), Costume National Scent Intense.
Durbano Black Tourmaline for instance.
La Via del Profumo Muschio di Quercia for instance.
Amour de Palazzo is a fantastic fragrance which I love to wear for particular occasions. I don't know a lot about Garuda unfortunately.
Frankly the current versions of the Aramis fragrances are excellent while unfortunately the current Habit Rouge (still anyway more than good) lacks the baroque hesperidic "gradeur" and the complexity...
I just would like to recommend you 3 historical pieces of art: Aramis by Aramis, Aramis Havana and Guerlain Habit Rouge. You can't miss these creations among thousands you could pick up.
Thanks for the pics Colin. Looking forward to discover these unknown (by me) dodgy fragrances.
Cerchi Nell'Acqua Usmar Venezia, Hilde Soliani Bell'Antonio, Bruno Acampora Nero.
L'Homme, The Dreamer, Blonde, Black Jeans, Gianni Versace, Versus Uomo,
To quote several: Bruno Acampora Blu, Le Labo Ylang 49, Mona di Orio Vanilia, Gentleman Secret Arabian Oud, Guerlain Samsara, Ylang in Gold by Micallef.
So many, two for instance: Fazzolari Au Dela, La Via del Profumo Tawaf.
Moschino Pour Homme, Romeo Gigli by Romeo Gigli, Enrico Coveri Pour Homme, Versus Uomo by Gianni Versace, Macassar Rochas, IL Lancetti, Vintage Trussardi Uomo, Xeryus Givenchy, Venezia Uomo...
One of my 4-5 all time favorite lines. I'm wearing Aramis while writing.
Good Alfarom's tips. Several further scents for the Tokyo suburbia's metallurgical night: CdG Black (wait the dry down), several from Room 1015 (Blomma Cult for instance), Narciso Rodriguez For Him,...
Just to quote several: Costume National 21, Costume National Scent Intense, Aramis by Aramis, Montecristo Masque, La Via del Profumo Muschio di Quercia, Azzaro Pour Homme, Parfum d'Empire Musc...

Hi dear, welcome.
Vintage Polo, no doubt for me.
Amazing amazing fragrance, still one of my favorite, please guys don't forget to moisturize my corpse with Aramis the day of my dead as I'm doing often nowadays alive, virile and "fragrant". This...
I see just one masterpiece over there: Habit Rouge (Kouros is anyway a great scent).
Boucheron Jaipur Homme for instance.
Thank you so much guys, I'm speechless and honoured to share in here on Basenotes my passion with all of you. Classic Carven Homme is just one of the great scents of the past which manage to fire up...
Agree with you Alfa.
Agree, one my favorite, try also Enrico Coveri Classic Pour Homme if you like Xeryus.
No please Hednic, they should kill me by discontinuing my beloved Aramis.
I've detected an oudh's presence just in the first EDP's formulation
(by a red leather stuff wrapped).
So many, Ferre Pontaccio 21, Aramis, Romeo Gigli by Romeo Gigli, Gianfranco Ferre For Man, Aramis Havana, Or Black etc
Domenico Caraceni 1913. Mint is not a listed note but the general effect is more than vaguely minty/aromatic, earthy/floral and incensey. Another great one is Faconnable by Faconnable.
Simply that aggressive sub-human was a pretty fucked up (in the brain) idiot. Nothing wrong with you.
Lately Bruno Fazzolari and House of Matriarch.
My humble opinion is antithetic, Havana is one of the few masterpieces of all times and this is plain, an unforgettable fragrance on the right man, spicy, fresh, exotic, sultry, classy. "Complete and...
Agree with you dear, as usual.
Scent Intense for sure, simply amazing. I appreciate also a lot CN 21.
Yes, I'd add for instance Lavande Royal Roger&Gallet, English Lavender Atkinsons, Eau de Lavande Diptyque, the lavender from L'Occitane etc
Gianfranco Ferre for Man for instance
The more you have occasion to experience each single ingredient/raw material by its own (and furthermore in combination with other notes) the more you will get precious informations useful to decode...
Overall I just think is better (in any case and whichever fragrance you are curious about) trying the current versions since the vintage formulas are going soon to disappear and you won't find those...
1) Salvatore Ferragamo Pour Homme
2) Chrome Azzaro
3) Nautica Voyage
Hi dear Rick,
I just hope you could start writing soon your reviews in here, your point of view is precious as well. Nobody is born "yet learned" and you can learn a lot along the way, I consider...
Azzaro PH is simply timeless, you can try anyway Cuba Black by Cuba Paris for instance.
One of my favorite "stuffs" in absolute.
Close to skin scents, namely Balenciaga Ho Hang, Casamorati Fiero, L'Erbolario Corteccia, Askett&English Essential, Eau Sauvage Classic , Santa Maria Novella Acqua di Sicilia, several 4711, Aqua...
Tested it recently on skin, lot of suggestion around the new formulation which is not so bad, utterly agree with Drseid and Diamondflame.
Vintage Habit Rouge Edt is probably the most artistic masterpiece in perfumery, pure baroque perfection since the first hesperidic blast to its gorgeous oriental base, the definition "old man scent"...
Hi dear, welcome.
Surely Cartier Panthere and Le Baiser du Dragon.
Dear hednic, you are a tasteful and classy man, ahhhhh.
Fille en Aiguilles
I love Guy Laroche Horizon.
Probably your feces smell like moonflowers. If one seems sophisticated describing as fecal the smell of civet (personally I own civet pure oil and don't find a more appropriate way to describe it) is...
I'm sorry, have you tested this fragrance? Do you know how does exactly civet smell? Have you ever tested a pure civet-castoreum accord? This is simply fecal and there is no hype in it, this is the...
No beeswax. According with my personal experience on skin I've never tested something stronger on civet, honestly far beyond Muscs Koublai Khan, I agree with Alfa about a brooding woody presence of...
I just hope that since now respect and politeness could enrich this forum which is all over the world appreciated for its "fair" use of discordance and dissent.
Sorry...Sycomore, Habit Rouge, l'Instant De Guerlain Pour Homme Extreme
A great fragrance (classy, really musky and lemony), I own a little bottle which I treasure.
Perfumery is an art? Probably, the most individual one, art to convince, thumbs down for the rhetoric of art (of the conceptuality), thumbs down for all those self-declared artists "declaiming" a...
Costume National Scent Intense (androgynous, chic and enygmatic).
With all the respect... Aramis Havana by far.
Yes, I have to agree with you Dave, the Loant Collection is an experiment, too much simplistic and synthetic the "single pieces" (especially Lovann and Lobitt are pretty disappointing), far more...
A fantastic news, one of my favorite fragrances, just hoping the juice will kept identical.
After a more specific and less "instinctual" assessment I have to specify that each piece of the Loant Collection is exclusively due for a combined "implementation" with the further "members" of the...
Gianfranco Ferre for Man, Romeo Gigli by Romeo Gigli, Borsalino Classic, L'Erbolario Corteccia, Battistoni Marte, Aramis, Escada Megnetism for Man, etc
Vintage Etro Vetiver, the number one imo.
At least conceptually Acqua di Selva by Visconti di Modrone, Pino Silvestre, TSAR, Tom Ford Italian Cypress, Caesars Man Caesars World
Notturno is quite interesting (silent and mysterious, evocative about a southern summer night), try also Luci ed Ombre created by Meo Fusciuni for Masque.
A waterfall of injustice without any proof (on the other hand impossible to retrieve cause inexistent), apparently veiled but basically crystalline accusations against respectful persons just...
Commas are enough, the crystalline substance of my writing (despite my poor english) simply buries the misery of your disgusting allusions.
unfortunately neither Unum (or Guerlain) nor the italian company we are working for are paying us lately, can anyone assume the members of our italian clan as cooks till when the crisis...
Oh my God my dear, thank you so much, I'm blushing.
1740 and Noir Patchouli are among my favorite.
For instance Escada Magnetism For Man, YSL Body Kouros, Joop Nightflight.
Vintage Guerlain Habit Rouge Edt
Jovoy L'Art de la Guerre is a particularly (for a part of its run) aqueous-aromatic (and somewhat fruity-musky) take on the sandalwood-leather-forest resins accord. More precisely the aroma opens...
Yes, just to quote a bunch, anyway you can find several further solutions (Serge Noir, Encense et Lavande, Vetiver Oriental etc).
Miller Harris La Fume', Noir de Reminiscence, Several Slumberhouse's, vaguely Etro Messe de Minuit (for several of its nuances). About Lutens more than Chergui I'd say Arabie and Fille en Aiguilles...
Yes, probably the vintage Havana is slightly more spicy in the opening but along the way vintage and new one are pretty similar if not identical, anyway each time I wear this fragrance everybody look...
I own a bottle of new Havana and can swear that is still an amazing exotic fragrance. Aramis preserves the quality and my Aramis by Aramis is amazing too.
Cartier XIII La Treizieme Heure opens soon unmistakably with a combination of smokey leather, aromatic birch and spicy vanilla. There is no way to fail in to catching this central combo if you have...
Yes, of course the great Aramis JHL, try also Aramis Classic, Derby Guerlain, Gianfranco Ferre for Man or Heritage Edt.
For Instance La via del Profumo Cuoio Tartaro, Cuir by Lancome and Micalleff Royal Vintage.
Nowadays I still prefer it anyway (Edt)
Habit Rouge, why? The "old style" (vintage formula) Habit Rouge Edt has been the most classy and luxuriant fragrance ever.
Don't forget that the elements of the Loant Collection are conceived in order to be combined together and have sense just if combined (as part of a more complex orchestra) imo, taken...
Great, so pleased you'r appreciating this fragrance, enjoy it.
Aramis Havana, Arabian Oud Gentleman Secret, Heliotrope Etro, Vetiver Guerlain, Capucci Classic Pour Homme, Casamorati Fiero etc.
Absolutely agree about the "melancholic mood". I'm lucky to own a full bottle of this great great fragrance. Extremely virile, assertive, classy, "silent".
Santi Burgas Lojazz is probably the most convincing piece included in the Loant's collection. A supremely floral accord of neroli, I suppose tuberose (not listed), oily sambac jasmine...
