Aventus. I went through a 4 oz and two 50 mL bottles from splits. My second most worn is a tie between Gucci Envy and Platinum Egoiste. With each of those, I went through 50 and 100 mL bottles.
Gucci Envy....I did some wild things wearing that scent.
Bleu de Chanel
Allure Homme Sport
Gucci Envy(Sorta cheating)
Mont Blanc Individuel
I'm in the camp that thinks you should wait before application. My fragrances never last if I apply right out of the shower....but when I wait, I get good performance.
I just received my bottle. I can't speak on performance but I sprayed it in my bathroom, came back 10 minutes later and I was amazed...it really does smell like Aventus. The two batches of Aventus...
Summer is tricky to me. In my experience, heat seems to accelerate anosmia. I live in the southeastern US with hot and humid summers...and there have been several occasions where I was projecting...
Designer: Gucci Envy
Underrated:Mont Blanc Individuel
There are some fragrances that perform better in certain situations/weather than others....but really I wear what I want to when I want to. When you own as many bottles as we fragheads do, we'd waste...
Allure Homme Sport
I always test how my bottles smell to others by generously spraying my fragrances in the air in one of my bedrooms. At close range, I thought BDC was generic....but when I sprayed it in the air and...
I live in the rural south....and Issey Miyake, the Polos, AdG, Light Blue, and Le Male are the ones I always smell.
1. Bleu de Chanel
3. Green Irish Tweed
4. Allure Homme Sport
5. Dolce & Gabbana Pour Homme
Bleu De Chanel
"Oooooo weeeeee......you SHOW smell good!!!!.....cashier at the grocery store.....I was wearing Mont Blanc Individuel
I spray my bed with Jaipur.
Givenchy Play Intense
YSL La Nuit
CK Euphoria Intense
Dior Homme Intense
D&G The One
212. Its grass and musk but surpisingly pleasant.
I could live without GIT....sometimes it's too sharp. It makes me feel as if I'm the offensive cologne guy. But I totally agree on Aventus....unless a celebrity copies Aventus and its cheap clone...
My signature scent should be a swiss army knife that I can use in all situations......even when I don't know what to wear. It has to have great longevity, good projection and a darn good smell unique...
I recieved my Aventus today. The shipping, packaging and atomizers were great. Would definitely do a split again!
Paris Hilton. Its light, cool and transparent...perfect for the gym.
La Nuit. Their smells are equally pleasing but in real world measurables (projection, longevity, compliments), La Nuit easily wins in my world.
Aventus is easily my most complimented fragrance. People who've NEVER complimented me on my other fragrances have complimented me on Aventus. And I swear more women flirt and talk to me when I wear...
Because in some really irrational way, its incredibly satisfying hoarding a bunch of stuff I'll never use.
I love Bleu and I have no problems with longevity.
On days I'm in the lab, aquatics are my favorite since I wear a hot lab coat. On days I'm at the computer, all of my fragrances except my attention except my attention whores are fair game.
I find that the fragrance hobby is extremely toxic to my financial health....I make impulse buys....then I go home and live with the guilt and the shame while crying in a corner screaming...
Egoiste Platinum was my most worn fragrance. It's one of my favorites but I don't have a single favorite....so I guess that makes it a go-to fragrance.
On my skin, Aventus lasts all day. On my clothes, Aventus has lasted through a wash cycle. While ironing my shirt after the wash cycle, it smelled soooooo good!
When I hear about how some people are struggling, I feel terrible spending money on fragrances I don't need. Thus I'd like to stop buying fragrances period.
Maybe someday I'll run into the ONE that I can spend the rest of my life with....a fragrance I can call my one and only. Until then, I'll just continue to live the life of a promiscuous fragrance...
I ordered my bottle from Neiman Marcus. They didn't send free samples but if you look up their coupon codes, you can receive free shipping with your purchase.
I have to say that I totally agree with you! The women who gave me emphatic compliments were already attracted to me. The women who weren't/aren't attracted to me.....they could care less about my...
It does smell cheap. It does smell tacky. However, it stills smells good, lasts a long time, and grabs loads of positive attention. It's my weapon of choice on weekend nights.
Chanel Pour Monsieur Concentree
There are other threads similar to this....and people who argue about this topic seem to be extremely partisan in their views....so it's futile arguing about this;). But I'll just say one more thing...
Angel is a loud, impulsive, bad a** who SCREAMS look at me!!!! Pure Malt is Angel's nice, quiet little brother who shies away from attention. I'll take Angel anyday!
So true....I've been a Basenotes lurker for quite some time. When I discovered Basenotes, I went out and bought some Basenotes approved fragrances (Egoiste, Guerlain Vetiver, Jaipur) while looking...
I'm a member of BMAO (Basenotes Members Against Opium). Considering that you'd like to attract YOUNG, PRETTY women, you should join.
Gucci Envy used to be my most complimented fragrance. I love me some Envy!
I'm in my mid 20s. AT THE MOMENT, my top three are:
1. Allure Homme Sport. It's so easy to wear. Fresh but not too sharp. Sweet but not too heavy. It's extremely versatile. I love it!
