Fake. I informed fellow Basenoter JWpianoboe that you've stolen his photo.
I'm glad that I'm not alone in this. :)
^ In agreement
Coromandel and Sycomore are probably the most popular. My personal favorite is Bois des Iles. The gingerbread base is very nice.
Wedding day: I'm struggling with this first option, but I suppose Uomo by Lorenzo Villoresi would work; it's a fresh masculine cologne.
Honeymoon: Dior Homme by Dior (no futher Honeymoon...
L'eau d'Hiver by Editions de Parfums
Bois des Iles and Egoiste.
Do anyone know if Amouage Sandalwood oil can be purchased in the US?
I enjoy your sandalwood when-to-wear guide. :) This was helpful.
I've always had a penchant for sandalwood and I'm considering purchasing one of the following:
1/ Tam Dao by Diptyque
2/ Sandalo by Lorenzo Villoresi
3/ Santal Noble by Maitre Parfumeur et...
Boring, but pleasant. The Extreme version is more complex and interesting, in my opinion.
I smelled the similarity.
"The sparkling rose and raspberry jam is folded into a creamy base of vanilla, tonka bean and smooth sandalwood, taking us right to the brink of gourmand, but not quite crossing over. There is...
Gentlemen, choose up to five perfumers (alive or passed) that you would trust to create your personal fragrance.
1/ Dominique Ropion
2/ Olivier Polge
3/ Jacques Guerlain
Une Rose is quite nice.
I'm finding more and more rose centered perfumes available in today's market: Une Rose Chypree by Tauer, Lyric Man by Amouage, and the newest F. Malle, Portrait of a Lady,...
Is there a photo of this collection anywhere? :)
For Strangeness: Silver Factory
For a Macho Man: Riverside Drive
For I Work at Starbucks: New Haarlem
For I Don't Care What People Think: Chinatown
Le Parfum de Therese by Editions de Parfums
Mitsouko by Guerlain
Une Rose Chypree by Tauer Perfumes
and too many others to list...
Une Rose Chypree by Tauer Perfumes:
I have a friend that had this issue; however, he get headaches from most any perfume (fragrance).
Personally, I don't get headaches from any perfume.
Dune pour Homme by Dior
I apologize for the double post.
Invigorating/Uplifting - Geranium Pour Monsieur by Editions de Parfums, and Clinique Happy for Men
Soothing/Relaxing - Tam Dao by Diptyque, and Bois des Iles by Chanel.
The eagle has landed:
I'm surprised that I haven't seen Geranium Pour Monsieur by Editions de Parfums come up yet.
Sephora hasn't updated their photos yet, but if you order Dior Homme from Sephora online, then you will receive a black collared bottle.
I certainly received more compliments wearing the new Dior...
Yes, Dior has announced reformulations. I've attached a link below to blog discussing the Dior reformulations:
I've heard different answers regarding the number for reformulations Dior Homme has undergone. I was under the impression that Dior Homme was reformulated in the early part of 2011; however, Dior...
1/ I personally prefer the original formulation of Dior Homme; it was a designer release that didn't bore me. The new one doesn't bore me either, but it's less interesting.
2/ Yes, I own...
The Dior Homme offered in the bottle with a black stem is different: for simplicity's sake, I'd say the new Dior Homme has less iris, more cocoa, and is a bit more tame (meaning it doesn't project as...
Chanel has tight control of their distribution. It's damaging to Chanel's goodwill (or image) for their perfumes to be sold at discounted prices; customers might question the quality of Chanel's...
Sycomore by Chanel. Masculine and urbane.
We've deviated from the topic. Perhaps the title of this thread should be changed.
Escada pour Homme
My money was refunded.
My order was cancelled, too. I got a consolation coupon code for the cancellation, but it doesn't work.
Does anyone know if the code was a percentage off, or free shipping, or both?
I got one bottle. Thanks.
I hope Abercrombie employees are directed to spray these new colognes on their merchandise; colognes typically have poor longevity and - hopefully - I won't choke as I pass by their boutiques.
This is vulgar:
I've never entertained such a gamble.
I enjoyed this perfume quite a bit.
Perhaps Creed will offer Royal Delight similarly to Selection Verte; only at a certain time of the year and only in the 250 ml flacon.
I've completed splits with a few Bond No. 9 perfumes and - yes - some of the caps arrived loose.
Havana by Aramis.
Fille en Aiguilles by Serge Lutens
There are differences in preference for perfumes from continent to continent at least that's what I've observed from blogs and programs that I've read/watched. Here's what I remember (I apologize for...
Ah. What a pity. I was excited.
I've heard that the Habit Rouge L'eau is a more modern and approachable version of the original. I'm excited about the new Habit Rouge Cuir that's coming out.
+1 for Greenbriar.
Most of them have already been mentioned, but I'd like to add:
Bois des Iles by Chanel
Sous le Vent by Guerlain
Smells like Italian Cypress by Tom Ford to me, but I may have been suffering from nose fatigue; I was wearing Égoïste that day. :P
Odd. The label on your 75 ml (2.5 oz) atomizer seems a bit higher than the one pictured in Chanel's...
Good news! I had no idea that you could order from Les Senteurs in the USA. I added Geranium Pour Monsieur to my cart and the total was roughly $194. A $31 savings from Barney's silly price. Thank...
Guh. Sad news. I was browsing Barneys online and it seems that the entire Editions de Parfums range is now $10 - $20 more expensive depending on the fragrance. Aedes online is still selling at the...
Geranium Pour Monsieur by Editions de Parfums
Hmm. I wonder if the price will drop once it's released globally.
What's the price for the 250 ml flacon?
I'd like to hear your analysis if you decide to purchase from them. :)
I've noticed that a lot of brand representative fragrances, such as Eau de Lalique, Eau de Guerlain, Eau d'Hermes, and so on all have zero or minimal negative reviews.
Eau de Lalique:...
Tonka Imperiale by Guerlain
So, I ran across an interesting online fragrance company.
Here's the link:
Although ersatz reproductions of authentic fragrances is not...
Midnight in Paris is Bulgari Black with the roundness (completeness) of Dior Homme, e.g., nothing seems out of place. It's one of my favorite releases this year.
My list in no particular order:
Musc Ravageur by Editions de Parfums Frederic Malle
Geranium Pour Monsieur by Editions de Parfums Frederic Malle
Epic by Amouage
Aventus by Creed
I heard that it's supposed to be an "unusual" fragrance, perhaps along the same lines as a Comme des Garçons fragrance.
I just tested Musc Ravageur and Dior Homme EDT and the combination is quite pleasant. I'm curious to test MR with Bvlgari Black as well. More vanilla and some leather in there might make an...
As I curiously perused the reviews of Musc Ravageur on Basenotes, I saw one that caught my attention:
The member's review says, "Musc Ravageur also begs to be layered upon. I'll have fun...
How do they withdraw money from a bank account if you used a credit card for payment? I've never seen any unusual deductions from my account.
Can splits be advertised through a thread or only through the split forum?
I wished I knew about your interest in Windsor earlier. I'm getting a flacon in the autumn, but all the shares have been reserved. I'm sure someone else is doing a split for Windsor.
PM sent. :)
Sorry about the double post.
PM sent. :)
Got my flacon in yesterday. Boy, does it smell nice! Here's a link to a photograph I took last night.
I noticed that my MI flacon was an insipid concoction; it was mostly salt. I was concerned, but I purchased it directly from Creed, so it was authentic. I eventually spoke with the director at the...
I just ordered a L'Artisan bottle from Beauty Habit last week and it also had a clear cap. Thanks Oprah!
Also, I was talking to a gentleman in Paris and he mentioned that the bottles at the...
I was planning on purchasing a fragrance from L'Artisan Parfumeur and I noticed a difference their caps color. One website had gold colored caps and another had clear caps. I'm wondering if the clear...
Creed Boutique in NY will get flacons sometime in October.
$600 for Windsor? I thought that they were selling for $405? I need to call up Creed again.
I think that your link completed the split. Thank you for helping me out and for your kind words.
Aventus is currently available for purchase from Creed Boutique online. I'm very interested in this fragrance.
It's been my most reached for bottle this spring and will continue so until summer's end.
Unfortunately, Lucky Scent doesn't carry Editions de Parfums. As for The Perfume Court, 3 samples of close-to-equivalent size would be more expensive than ordering directly from Paris. The best...
I was highly dissatisfied with my recent experience for a sample request from F. Malle:
I placed an order for a 100 ml bottle of Musc Ravageur to be shipped directly from Paris. I asked them to...
You're probably correct; however, I wouldn't treat customers this way.
By the way, I like your avatar. I smelled L'air du désert marocain for the first time last week.
F. Malle now charges for samples. Well, they're complimentary, but they charge 20 € to cover shipping costs of three 2 ml samples (converts to about US$ 25 in June 2010).
I was really...
L'Eau de L'Artisan by L'Artisan Perfemers
I've been working through my sample of Kristiansand NY and it's really growing on me. I'm typically NOT a fan of powdery fragrances, but this is one of the best powders I've encountered. It's clean,...
I just got a bottle of Montauk today. It's fairly nice. Tart fruit and woodsy on my skin. It'll be a good addition to my summer wardrobe.
