Thanks for the commonsense and good luck at the hospital.
I was in Boots today and there was nothing I was interested in sampling so I ended up spraying Aramis on my arm (couldn't remember trying it before strangely) A few minutes later I had a weird...
Live long and prosper
I wouldn't dare enter into a fragrance discussion with someone who had actually spent time in Grasse :shocked:
but if you think you have made some significant scientific breakthrough I suggest you...
You've been reading the forum for years and it didn't occur to you that calling yourself MillesimeMe and posting that you had found "the best blend of all time " might mark you as today's CREED ...
Yes there he is thanks.
On reflection though I think it's more deserving of a custard pie.
Where's my Godzilla facepalm picture?
I can't even be bothered posting it.
Are you the same person who posted as "Alejandro-Loves -CREED last week and posted this ? :
" For those who know...
L'Eau D'Issey for a seventeen year old in the summer I think.
Well, I'm sure some of us are basically in agreement with you.
If you want to accustom yourself to individual notes there are ways to do so, check some of the other forums on the site for leads....
Looks like Alejandro has been called in for re-programming
Two pieces of advice to anyone new to Basenotes :
1. Don't invest in the hype.
2. Don't invest in any batch variation foolishness.
We haven't heard the last of this :undecided:
It's too late I've given up.
I thought anyone who had ever kissed a woman wearing lipstick knew what it smelled like :huh:
You'll have to find something else to compare the smell of lipstick to ?
Like what ?:undecided:
What's so complicated about recognising the smell of lipstick ?
... and what is there to feel...
I'm not sure you are allowed to describe the Creed F^nb*ys on Basenotes as f*nb*ys , though you may get away with this one as some of them are banned just now. ..:happy:
Antaeus for me, I find...
I think your list is fine.
In the heat I think Dior Homme Sport would be great on all counts, except I'm not certain about longevity.
Tom Ford Grey Vetiver I also like the idea of in the warmth,...
That gives me another idea for a thread...:beer:
Seem as you have resurrected the thread I'll agree with you, I think Grey Vetiver is an excellent scent.
OK I know it looks bad :embarassed: but it's all in the interest of science...
* But they have to vote for Opium P H or L'Eau D'Issey P H :tongue:
Pity you didn't think to tell them how you'd like the bottle to look while you were at it :smiley:
Can't wait for the " which is the holiest batch " thread.
Thanks André. I really like Cacharel Pour Homme but have only tried the current version.
Seems rather a pointless "battle", a bit like asking which is better out of Motown or heavy metal music. I couldn't say.
Re. more people commenting on Creed fragrances clearly there is a hardcore...
Pretty much my choices.
I would put vintage Kouros just above Rive Gauche and Egoiste just above Pour Homme
I have only tried Jicky in it's current EDT (I assume it was EDT, I didn't look closely at the bottle now that I think about it) and I prefer MDM, partly because the opening seems a little less...
I didn't agree with this but I have tried them both side by side this evening and have now changed my mind.:shocked:
Roadster Sport shares the basic scent and would probably suit someone who...
Water off a duck's back :coolold:
Not sure the previous post (or the thread come to think of it ) deserved that display of reason sense and clear thinking but it was appreciated :smiley:.
Would you mind putting that in English for me ?
Rarely have I seen the nail hit so squarely on the head. :beer:
I more or less agree.
Often a compliment will be a reaction to really noticing something, the response could be "are you wearing aftershave ?" or perhaps if someone is feeling kindly disposed...
Right I'm off up the wooden hills to Bedfordshire but let me leave you with a thought :
Jive : How about you give a rest to the assessing of new and newish members and how they are shaping up as Basenoters ?
Your sarcastic response to this poster just re-inforces his...
Thanks. I'll bear it in mind.
I would start with Burberry London or maybe just Dior Homme Intense (Or Dior Homme, I like it just as much and it's a bit cheaper)
Really though, try them and make up your own mind.
I always test projection by checking if the cat retains consciousness when I walk past him. If he doesn't I know I'm good to go.
I would start at ten with a weak scent like DH personally.
I carry a spare bottle in my lunchbox :smiley:
What do we think?
I personally think it says a lot about ebay that the seller is permitted to do business on the site.
He's certainly got some balls :smiley:
New Creed thread bumper in town.
Just what the forums need :thumbsup:
Don't pay attention to that thread, for Christ's sake :rolleyes:
Fair point. I haven't tried Costume National so I might give it a go, not that I need anything similar to Egoiste when i have the original.
Well I wouldn't want to be guilty of brolitical incorrectness!
You could try CDG Wonderwood, though again you might find it a bit "dry and literal"...
It might just work, but only if you are rude to people while wearing it.
I haven't tried the edp but going by the edt, you are going to have something extremely rich and extremely long lasting as the edt is both of these things.
I may even be slightly jealous :undecided:
I love Egoiste. The secret of the sweetness could be the rose mixed with the vanilla and the way that combines with the sandalwood is what really does it for me.
Sorry for those who don't get much...
I chipped in with some friends to buy a bag of civet coffee, but wasn't about when it arrived and it all got drunk without me :cry:
Apparently it was pretty good but not worth the pricetag...
Isn't that the new Creed body spray ?
Thanks MIkeMuscle for the clarification.
A "bromance" huh?
I should have guessed....
For work I say Bleu., but I would rotate so as not to get bored. Maybe Dior Homme ( 2 sprays max) and Mont Blanc Legend once a week, for example.
Nice to see this one still running :laugh:
Makes me think of being out in Liverpool at night. Most of the girls (and some of the boys) have that orange tan thing going on.
Someone made me laugh...
My own collection includes Monsieur De Givenchy EDT and aftershave, of which the edt topnotes have suffered slightly,
Chanel A Gentleman's Aftershave, which puzzles me slightly as I can't really...
I almost bid for a bottle not so long ago on ebay.
This talk is making me feel like I missed out...
You could have paid a bit more attention to spelling in the thread title. I thought you meant we were all now supporting or even going to be offered jobs with the Chanel company.
As to whether the...
It appears we looked in different places for our definition. My search brought up :
" a brief but intense infatuation for someone.
she did have a crush on Dr Russell"
Very much doubt it is skin chemistry.
Maybe try again in a while in different conditions and see if you get the same feeling. If you do then maybe they really aren't for you.
I suppose so. We are all of course entitled to our opinions, which makes them "valid" from at least one perspective. My opinion is that only a fool would label his opinion as invalid.
I guess it was a bit rude, but sharing efforts and threads doesn't make you an expert nose.
Because respecting the opinions of experts is always an indication of homosexuality....:kiss:
That's the best laugh I've had all day :thumbsup:
(Though I do respect Ericrico's passion and knowledge)
Ungaro 1 though I'm not quit sure why.
That makes sense. (or at least the Fahrenheit bit makes sense, can't really stand Cool Water personally but whatever.)
Thanks for your opinion :smiley:
Escada pour Homme for me.
That may or may not be the case but it doesn't stop any of us from posting them.
I think in L.T.s case though his background does give his opinions a little more gravitas than the average Basenotes...
Well he only beat you to it by three or four years.
I'm sure you'll be ready next time...:smiley:
I personally disagree with about 95% of your post :smiley: though let's be honest 95% of the time it's the Creed fanboys who complain about Luca Turin's views.
Great for a cheap laugh :wink:
I guess he is talking about original formulations, since the high scores for scents like Cool Water have to be for originality, surely?
I don't know about Fahrenheit though, it does seem a bit...
Well at least it wasn't long enough to get bored with.
Another option, though maybe a long shot is to locate some 5ml miniatures.
i bought a pack of about ten mixed samples between 1.5ml and 5ml...
I recommend young Damian looks for a part used bottle on ebay.
I got half a bottle for about £1700
Haha! sorry that should have read £17.00 but I won't delete it as it made me laugh :smiley:
OP : If you love Black orchid and need to replace it would you not be better just replacing it or looking at other female scents?
Enough said. :beer:
Fair enough, though I think the humour value might be slightly lessened for some of us by the 7,000 Aventus posters who have since written pretty much exactly the same thing . This post came from a...
DHS for me by some way.
Debenhams and John Lewis, (almost) full range of Guerlain ,Aqua Di Parma, Creed etc and only about 200 metres between them in city centre.
Four years ???
Further north Debenhams, John Lewis and Selfridges (if there is one) stock niche scents, depending on one's understanding of that word.
Much appreciated :thumbsup:
Anybody else who feels like putting the plebians in their place now's your chance :smiley:
Members appear to be outing themselves Ipp.
Nice, another one comes out of the woodwork.
Though to be quite honest I...
The question is, is it amusing?
Essenza for me.
Yes, though even rigorous testing doesn't seem to make that much difference in the end with me.
I enjoy something new until it isn't new anymore then the process starts again.
I'm at the point now...
There are still people who believe things that come from Creed marketing department?
Yes I suppose so.
It's the original XS, nothing to do with that nasty Black XS strawberry thing.
OONA NOIR, YOU ARE IN BIG TROUBLE !
