    Layering Serge Lutens / any "recipes" ?

    I know Serge Lutens has commented and even encouraged that his scents be layered. I've done this personally with other items in my collection, and it works. But I'm curious if any forum participants...
  2. Has anyone purchased from PureLifeVision.com?

    I was looking for some cheaper online versions of Serge Lutens and Google shopping brought me to this website. I have seen mentioned here to be a bit cautious about these things since they could be...

    I would never buy blind. I tried this at Macy's and didn't care for it.
  4. Re: Men over 45: Do any of you wear Mugler fragrances?

    So much of what to wear, and when to wear (seasonal) and should women or men wear a scent, and what age groups seems so arbitrary to me. I'm over 50 and think Amen seems great, but it's very rich...

    Re: Can Someone Explain this Phenomenon?

    Yes, happened/happens with me when I wear Amouage Lyric for Men. I purchased a bottle, not cheap stuff, and I want to smell it on me obviously (that's the main reason why I buy fragrances). Something...

    LOL @ scenting 34th St Station. Why stop there, the entire MTA needs scenting. :laugh:
  7. Re: Amouage Lyric for Men is a great dry down scent

    This stuff smells so different when you try it on your wrists versus a normal wear. I got a decanter from Perfumed Court and loved it, and purchased a bottle from Aedes on Christopher Street in the...

  9. Re: My wifes take on A* Men. Funniest thing I ever heard

    I bought a bottle of this, but am still going through my samples. I'm not sure if I will keep it still. Just too much money to wear something that annoys me.
  10. Re: My wifes take on A* Men. Funniest thing I ever heard

    Certainly smells different if you just spray in the air or someone else. When I wear, it's almost a bit overwhelming at times.

    Re: Fahrenheit Reformulation (help please)

    Yeah, my brother used to wear it years ago, when I sampled it last night, it smelled a lot different. I don't care for it at all now.
  12. Re: Niches versus designers: the loudness factor OR Why can't I smell niches as easily

    I'd love to try to sample that here somewhere in NYC, I asked Aedes de Venustas if they carry that line, but apparently they don't now, even though they used to.
  13. Re: Niches versus designers: the loudness factor OR Why can't I smell niches as easily

    Yeah, I saw reviews here about Arabie that complained about it smelling like fruitcake-- and that's EXACTLY what it smells like, but I LIKE fruitcake, so it was a win-win for me. What I don't...

    Re: Santal imperial deceptive longevity

    Recently I've started layering it with a tiny spray of Creed Original Santal. It's kind of like sandalwood heaven. If you're inclined to try this recipe, go very, very light on the OS, or you'll...

    How does that compare to Santal Noble ?

    Funny you mention A*men. I got a decanter of that from The Perfumed Court and for some reason I bought a bottle at Macy's. It smells wonderful when sprayed and on paper, but when I got the decanter...
