  1. Re: Went from loving a fragrance to hating it in one wearing? Huh?

    I think this is dead-on actually. There's some specific note in there (that seems to be in both Perry Ellis and L'Instant) that's just cranked up to 11 and completely overpowers everything else. That...
  2. Went from loving a fragrance to hating it in one wearing? Huh?

    After an extensive sampling and testing phase I decided I loved L'Instant de Guerlain PH EDT and bought a bottle. I wore it maybe five times over the next two weeks and it smelled fantastic every...

    Re: Bvlgari MAN

    I tried a bit of this on a card just now and really, really like it. Can't stop smelling it. It's reminiscent of PH Extreme, but without the elements of that fragrance (coriander and grapefruit) that...

    Re: My first real blind BUY!

    I'm wearing the EDT right now and can't imagine how anybody in the world could dislike this smell :)

    Re: Any problems ordering from overseas sites?

    To answer my own question, an order from strawberrynet got here in less than a week with no problems at all :)

    Re: I think I'm on a dangerous path here.

    I'm not. But chavs are a worldwide phenomenon :p

    My first and only blind buy, Tabac Original EdC, finally arrived. And of course it doesn't smell anything like I was expecting it to (I'm detecting...

    Re: I think I'm on a dangerous path here.

    Tracked down a bottle of this at last and it is divine! Great suggestion :smiley:

    The sales lady went straight for the Chanel Bleu and cocked an eyebrow at me when I insisted I wanted to smell...

    Re: I think I'm on a dangerous path here.

    Update!

    The more I smelled L'Instant the more I liked it. Tried a wrist spritz before going out to dinner and a movie with the lady and it was just fantastic, absolutely perfect and inoffensive....

    Re: I think I'm on a dangerous path here.

    More great advice! Thanks Kal, I have also been suggested Luckyscent and these two sites are both pretty reasonable with their shipping.

    I did give Shalimar a sniff and quite liked it, though it...

    Re: I think I'm on a dangerous path here.

    I definitely intend to. They struck me as scents that one should gently ease one's self into. Don't think it will be my first purchase but they will stay in mind. I'm going to go back today to get a...

    Re: I think I'm on a dangerous path here.

    Damn! When you're right you're right. On my lunch break I managed to find a store with a better selection, and thankfully it had a Guerlain counter. I eagerly tried a spritz of Vetiver, only to find...

    Any problems ordering from overseas sites?

    Has anyone done this with success? Any horror stories? The reason I ask is that NZ Post makes it pretty clear that one is not to try to send perfume through the postal system. And I bought something...

    Re: I think I'm on a dangerous path here.

    Thanks for all the advice but especially this, which seems extremely sensible. You're right, of course - will attempt to limit all blind purchases unless they're so cheap that it doesn't matter.

    Re: I think I'm on a dangerous path here.

    Thanks! The EDP is indeed not within my reach. Would you recommend the Habit Rouge EDT over the Heritage EDP? Habit Rouge is half the price, so I'm happy to agree with you on that one.

    I think I'm on a dangerous path here.

    Up until about three weeks ago I had never given cologne the slightest thought. And now here I am, asking for advice on how to spend a not-insignificant fraction of my income on the stuff... this is...
