Aventus. it's just this disgusting blend of musk, oud, and something that smells like vomit. Gross.
Is this really what you should be worrying about? Gee hmm isn't there an unemployment problem in the United States of America?
Yes you learn what things smell like over time. That seems kind of obvious, jackass.
I found this neither funny nor heartwarming. Did you forget to take your brain medicine?
I don't wear fragrances at all.
I spray 25.
I highly doubt you're going to live that long. 12 years is too long for someone who sprays 30 sprays a day. the cancer will catch up to you and you will die.
Kill them. They obviously don't understand you at all. Use the fragrance to blow fireballs in their faces.
Just a bottle of liquid? So are you, dumbass.
You know how they say that God is love? Well Jesus = Aventus. I learned that in Catholic school.
This is a really hard one but i'll try my best.
Creed- Une Seife de la Nil
Bond No. 9- Hanzie pour homme
Gucci- Fuck Who You Know
Prada- And Where You Heard It From
Louis- And From Whom
I don't really know the guy, so I have nothing against him personally. Sure we made out once and it was a little awkward, but overall, I can't say I like Aqua di Gio that much.
Pure musk oils make a truly luxurious shampoo.
I've recently returned from a trip to the United Arab Emirates and I had the privilege of smelling a lot of things I couldn't here in the states. It was a really amazing fragrance...
There's a super niche company called Matthew Raimo. They make the best vetiver I've ever smelled. Check it out!
I use it to suffocate cockroaches in my basement.
I have 7 bottles of Acqua di Gio. It's my favorite and it's hard to find here in Tanzania.
It's easily a classic, one of the best aquatics along with A*Men Pure Malt.
Hey cologne experts, I really need your help! I'm hosting a film screening and I need a scent to wear. The STAR of the movie, the incredible Matt Raimo (remember that name, he's going to be...
Nah, go with A*Men. They're basically the same thing.
I have FIVE HUNDRED dollars to spend in Grenarnia, a country that only rich people know about.
It's real. I bought one in Chinatown on Canal Street and it looks just like yours. Chinatown only sells real Gaultiers. you're good bro.
Funny! Oh my god what a coincidence! I met Shaniqua Creed in Queens just the other day. She gave me free samples of Creed Sublime Vanille.
Definitely creed Aventus. It was the worst blind buy ever. I only like artistic fragrances that don't obviously smell good when you first sniff them. Aventus is too obvious and therefore I don't...
The other day I went to the zoo. I sprayed Black Aoud and I was raped by a monkey. It was the most unexpected compliment ever.
I bought 700 dollars of rare oud oils from Nigeria.
The other day I went to the zoo. I had sprayed fake YSL L'homme that I had bought in Chinatown for 20 bucks. I got at least 7 female compliments, all from really cute girls around my age (20). I...
Look, it's never too late to have a unique signature scent. It's true that Aqua di Gio will not be that common for a teenager, but after a little while, you'll feel like you need something...
Do said deadbeat dads happen to be horrible serial killers?
This is really cool. Thanks very much!
1. How old are you? 20
2. Male or female? Male
3. Are you an introvert (enjoy time alone) or an extrovert (outgoing and social)? Introvert
Can I make a prediction? you'll be back. lol
This actually isn't bad. Much better than Light Blue!
Hey, some of the fakes these days are amazing! They smell just like the real thing!
Muscs Koublai Khan
Paco Rabanne pour homme
They're all worth exploring, as everyone says. I'm not that into the Diors, I honestly found them a little disappointing, but I've only smelled 5 or so and that line has expanded. But you know, I...
Real Estate, or possibly education. Both are good investments.
OR- La Nuit de L'homme and a split of Aventus
I wouldn't be surprised if you found even real oud oils kind of nasty. It's definitely an acquired taste, not a note that the general public will point to and say "that smells good".
I think Portrait is pretty masculine actually. However, if you think Rose 31 is girly, stay away from Portrait. Definitely sample both though. I personally think Musc Rav is gross.
I think you should collect pokemon cards instead =P
On a serious note, of the few Malles that I've sniffed it's probably my favorite. Hate Musc Ravageur, hate Tubureuse Criminelle, like this one....
Pardon my ignorance. Can a business guy and sale rare fragrances at high prices? I realize that obviously local pharmacies and small stores can do this, but online retailers (fragrancenet, beautiy...
Nah, we keep trying, collecting, and learning. I think that's the way it should be anyway, otherwise we'd lose interest in a heartbeat.
Grant et al-
I realize asking for more is probably very rude right now, and I can't thank you enough for tirelessly working to make Basenotes possible. Is it possible to make it so that recently...
You got Terre? Awesome, that was the one that actually got me into basenotes! At the time, 75 bucks for a stupid cologne was ridonculous. Dior Homme (any formulation, really), Burberry London, the...
Lyric Man, but to be very honest I think Tea Rose is close enough to it at a tiny portion of the price
Sycomore is excellent, but as protector says above, I'd much prefer to buy 3 great designer scents. Try Dior Homme, and Terre d'Hermes, plus a cheapy like Giorgio Bevery Hills or Rochas Man. Those...
I really just find immense shots of musk disgusting. I understand where the appeal comes from, but I just cannot get into it at all. Some are ok- Kiehl's original works for me. But ones I cannot...
Double, and sorry for up above =(
Well I feel really silly trying to do this. But hell, maybe I'll be like the annoying kid in Revenge of the Sith who proposes to Obi-Wan that maybe someone erased the information about the clone...
I'm gonna second Spark. This scent is so under the radar it's crazy. Just excellent, imagine digging into a creme brulee next to a fireplace.
I believe 2011 is quite close to the original. I haven't smelled it, but that's what most people say here on basenotes, and Luca Turin agrees in his book. I'm lucky to have some original and love...
Looks good! I suppose we can think of this from an "upgrading" approach, for example:
swap Antaeus for Santal Noble or Original Santal
swap Chanel pour Monsieur for Millesime Imperial
Nothing wrong with getting either. Hmmm I'd say Bleu might be a little more versatile.
BOTH, but Egoiste is more of a priority imo. And it's cheaper than the parfum
I'm going to assume the Attars are really good. From the regular line, I'd say Lyric man. It's just beautiful, and completely underrated. Reflection can go right out the window.
Awesome man! I'm getting NIB versions of both, so excited.
Nvm. Yaaay security!
Ambre Russe, Ambrarem
Gris Clair, Borneo, probably Fille in Aiguilles
It is! Were this not as good a forum, someone would've trolled this thread by now =P. Welcome to basenotes!
I don't know Bottled, and need to check it out. Of the remaining two, Le Male.
Excellent man! Extremely versatile, great mixes of niche and designer, inexpensive and pricey, and just really well done overall.
You know, I kind of thought this too. I love Dior Homme more than anything, and DHI was just surprisingly sweet and just very off in comparison. I didn't hate it, and I still recommend it, but for...
Nothing wrong with those! I understand wanting to validate our purchases, we all do it and doubt ourselves, but have confidence in your tastes.
My most used is always the current bottle that I'm looking to kill. So I guess- Abercrombie Fierce, Bulgari BLV is a maybe but I doubt it, Happy for Men, Armani Code, Allure Homme Edition Blanche,...
Didn't you do this thread already? lol.
Thanks a lot for your help guys! I found another thread and basically learned everything I could hope to know about Gucci Pour Homme. Nothing else to say but lucky me!!
Haha nah, it's Gucci pour homme. Square bottle with orangey juice, not Gucci by Gucci. Also, sorry to be annoying, but can anyone help me with an authenticity check per chance? I see "scannon SA 33...
Is this thing discontinued? I promise I'm not asking a dumb question. According to BN, it's in production, but a few of the reviews say it's discontinued. I just got a 50 ml for $45 thinking I scored...
Only if you can figure out what to do with the other 13 ounces. You could definitely split it and possibly make a small profit on each sale. I guess the best way to think of it is like this: if a...
That's a bummer man! I'd just say maybe go with the splits
I think it's okay
Welcome! I'd recommend starting out with the good designer scents that have a reputation on this site. Specifically, you can start with the houses YSL, Chanel, and Dior. After enough searching,...
great suggestions. I'd say m7, great starter oud on a budget.
Congrats! Maybe this is a rude assumption to make, but I think you should treat yourself and get something new. Something ridiculous like a xerjoff or a jar. but of those, Frapin.
I don't know the limited edition, sorry. But the regular Harrod's Oud is excellent and I think it can be worn anywhere and anytime.
I HATE THESE GUYS. I just received a new bottle in a swap. Hmmm I wonder how rare it'll be at this point.
Definitely give Cuba from Santa Maria Novella a try if you can. It's a surprising, very overlooked scent that is just an excellent interpretation of tobacco.
I'm surprised Lyric is getting so much attention, since I think of it as kind of underrated. But yeah, Lyric is beautiful. I'd even take it over Jubilation.
Welcome! I also find Musc Ravageur disgusting.
I hate to be that guy, but I just wear fragrances for any season. As for occasion, I still kind of believe that I can wear anything for whatever occasion, though of course for more special occasions...
Tough one. I can rule out Fahrenheit, but it's too tough to choose between Egoiste and Terre.
Interesting choice. Go for it! Have fun, don't die, and visit Guerlain while you're there!
^^^Excellent suggestions up there. Bond Coney Island has a small reputation for being a good layering scent.
If you're so deadset on masculine, Musc Ravageur
How about Amber Sultan? I definitely think a lot more goes into it, but it certainly has an element of minty gum.
Penhaligon- I'd wear Endymion and LP No. 9 any time
L'Artisan- Mechant Loup, Tea for Two, I'm not a Timbuktu fan but I guess that could work
Comme Des Garcon's incense series
Also- like you said, this is an inexpensive and quite simple way to achieve decanting. Regardless of how it affects top notes, it's a great method nonetheless. I recently lost a massive amount (at...
a) This method is excellent and I look forward to using it in the future when I need to decant things
b) My only concern, and this is only based on ideas in my head so I could be very...
Excellent and insightful read
Isn't that basically a modern fougere? Can't say I have any ideas, sorry. I'm thinking something Villoresi.
Welcome! IMO you're in a good place right now. Definitely beats being a cynical old scent head who hates everything. Don't know if that actually happens. I think you can start by looking at...
I'd go Bleu all the way. Allure is too non-distinctive.
It'd definitely be LIDGE and not L'instant. I think La Nuit beats L'homme, and Burberry Touch is definitely not a modern classic (I think it's okay though). My three would be Terre d'Hermes, Dior...
Bleu de Chanel is excellent. For something that will compliment Aqua but still add variety, Terre d'Hermes. Also is your username a reference to David the fiddle God? Or is it just a really common...
