I still love these 90's fragrances:
D&G Pour Homme
Envy for Men
£16.98 for 120ml.
Great Scent. One of my favourites from Creed. Don't get the comparison with SMW personally.
Black easily gets my vote.
I thank you all kindly for your responses so far.
Scent Intense or 21? Which do you prefer and why?
Yeah, I saw that one too. I was severely tempted to bid on it.
Nice sample haul!
I have a water-tight alibi....
I've also had some nice compliments about Royal Oud.
Sorry about that. Not sure what happened, but I've uploaded the photo again.
Pardon easily. Back to Black was slightly too powdery for me.
Love both. Slight nod to MR on this one.
My advice: Always buy 'boxed' vintages whenever possible, even if it costs a little more. Sealed? Even better.
I have both, but I slightly prefer Pardon. I like the (synthetic?) Oud note in Pardon, and I find it just a bit more wearable and masculine than Ore. Ore is a great fragrance too, and definitely...
I love Green Valley, but I would never pay that for it. If you look around enough and don't mind waiting, I'm sure you could find a better deal.
It was 3 sprays on my arm from a tester bottle in an airport (during a 5 hour layover). I couldn't smell it after an hour. Neither could my partner. Maybe it was a bad bottle.
I didn't like the...
This lasted less than an hour on me. Not impressed. Nothing intense about it at all. If you want intense, just get some vintage D&G PH and be done with it.
Ambre Nuit or Cologne Blanche.
+1 for The Dreamer
My favourite 3:
I got a distinct barbershop vibe from it. I quite liked it but it was weak in terms of performance.
Spiritueuse Double Vanille
Dior Homme Intense
1740 Marquis de Sade
Haven't tried Bentley for Men Intense.
Welcome back Nersh!
You could try: Aqua di Gio Profumo, Polo Supreme Oud, An Air of Despair by Imaginary Authors and Oud Satin Mood by MFK. I also really liked Dress Code.
I have just bought a 30ml splash bottle with exactly the same design/info as Bottle #2 (pre '88?) in My First Scents post above. It smells absolutely amazing, and lasts all day. Probably the best $25...
I feel for you change1! I hope it was a near-empty bottle at least? I've dropped my fair share of fragrances over the years, the latest being a glass decant of Declaration d'Un Soir on NYE. I waited...
Loved the smell but it had close projection and quite poor longevity on me.
Thanks badarun! How similar is Moustache to Success by MCM? I didn't like that one much. Moustache has been added to the test list anyway, just for the name alone!
I really didn't like Leather Oud much at all, but I did like the big, dirty musk in Musc Ravageur though. I think it was the strong leather / musk combo in Leather Oud that turned me off. Thanks...
I rate Jicky very highly and it's great in any form. I know what you mean about the 'slightly alarming' opening though. I'm hoping MdM will last at least 4 hours? Subtle and ethereal excite me! Thank...
I have two decants, one from 2010 and one from 2013. Both have beastly performance on me.
Thanks Hednic! Didn't like the others or you haven't tried them?
It's the EDT. It will be the first fragrance I've sampled from this line. Love a good tobacco note, so I'm happy to hear this. Thanks Kaern!
I love the civet in Ungaro II. Hopefully I will...
Thank you for your impressions hitman!
I've read a plethora of reviews in the directory (as well as a number of threads) for each of them, but I'm looking for any more opinions and/or descriptions. Any love, hate or general indifference...
Designer: Diesel Zero Plus. It's discontinued now I think, but it's still easily found. And it's cheap as chips.
Niche: Musc Ravageur.
I'm thinking of buying a sealed 75ml vintage Egoiste Apres Rasage. I was wondering if anyone has experience with it? Specifically, I'm interested in its longevity. I know it's an 'after shave', but I...
According to http://checkcosmetic.net, it was manufactured in 1987 (a year before it was released!). Somewhere between 1990 and 1996 would be my best guess. It will probably go for a lot more than...
Not bad advice at all.
D&G Pour Homme
Gianfranco Ferre for Man
Gucci PH (1976)
What kind of longevity do you get from the EDP?
Which one did you go for in the end?
Acqua di Sale
L'Eau Serge Lutens
Anyone tried this yet? No reviews in the directory.
So many.....difficult to make a top 5.
Gianfranco Ferré for Man
Eau des 4 Voleurs
Great fragrance though.
I've had several new/boxed/unsealed Kouros Eau Du Sport bottles over the years, and most have suffered quite badly with, what I have always assumed was, evaporation. Maybe it's a bad bottle design?
Caron Pour un Homme
Pal Zileri Sartoriale
Azzaro Pour Homme
Currently own 7:
17. Musc Ravageur
33. Dolce & Gabbana Pour Homme
34. Royal Oud
50. Interlude Man
51. Rose 31
54. L'air du Desert Marocain
Is there a change in packaging to go with this reformulation?
There's a new Egoiste??
Wear what you like.
Sycomore, Epic Woman, Diorella, Black Cashmere, Sous Le Vent, Attrape Coeur, No.68, Vanilla (L'Artisan), Ambre Russe, Shalimar Light, Elixir des Merveilles, Coromandel,...
I notice you only sell within the U.S.. That cuts off a large % of your potential market.
A few that have come really, really close:
I've tried them all except Gris Montaigne (which is on my to-test list). There are some great fragrances on your list, but the only one I gave 5 stars to was Sycomore, my favourite vetiver.
100% since I only buy bottles/large decants of fragrances that I personally rate as 5 stars. Although, I do end up falling out of love with a few over time, which then get demoted and moved on to...
Dior Homme Parfum
I really enjoy all of By Kilian's Ouds. Straight to Heaven and Back to Black are the other two from this line that stand out to me.
I'll be spending some time in A'dam in July and August, so thanks a lot for this! Have you been? What's their stock usually like?
I've had some good success with Le Labo. I've either liked or loved most of what I've tried so far. Rose 31 has amazing longevity on me.
Will get my nose on this when released. What is a 'Cologne Absolute' anyway?
My two current favourites:
TDC's Oud Shamash
Mona di Orio's Oud
By Killian's Pure Oud and Rose Oud
AdP's Colonia Intensa Oud
Minty sandalwood. Love it. My gf doesn't like it at all. I still wear it often.
Better for cool, Autumn days I found.
I'm also in for some Spice and Wood if you do decide to open another one up...
You should bottle it and sell it.
Windsor / Spice and Wood / Royal Oud
Two 5 star fragrances in my book.
I enjoyed Sel Marin a lot. One of the best-smelling and most realistic marine scents I've tried.
Hopefully more like the original 2009 batch (which also had slightly better projection/longevity imo), but I'm not holding my breath. Just glad to see it's coming back in any form, even though I'll...
2003: Better than average, but not great
I believe you may be in love with the original release from 2009. My 2009 decant was very strong with eucalyptus and pine, and the rose was more in the background. My 2010 decant had a much more...
Italian Cypress works well in the fall.
I love Uomo but I have an issue with the EDT disappearing too quickly on my skin. Must try the parfum version.
Oud Shamash is lovely. To me, it smells like a cross between Jub XXV and GPH.
1. Eau de Gloire
2. Ambre Russe
As an non-US, this is killing me. I don't even know why I keep coming back to the thread.
I'd like to pick up an Egoiste deodorant stick for myself actually. Has anyone ever seen a fake one??
Also hoping that the rumours of DC1913 being reissued this year prove to be true...
I really enjoyed a Terre d'Hermes deodorant that I got for Xmas a couple of years ago.
Love some Ungaro II myself. I like it because the civet is blended so well with the citrus. Usually when I smell civet, it's paired with strong florals or leather, neither of which I like. As you say...
Two nice ones.
Casual Friday, Ore, Ambre Narguile, 1969....if they are considered gourmand?
About 6 Bitcoins....
Several: Amber Precieux, Intrigant Patchouili, Jicky, Encens Mythique d'Orient, Portrait of a lady.
I've been buying vintage bottles of this for the past 5 years or so. As Scott.T said before me, the vintage version can have great projection. It surrounds you in a lovely cloud which projects well...
Cacharel Pour Homme vintage aftershave
I did a search but came up short. If anyone can point me towards an old thread that covers this, I'd really appreciate it.
Does anyone own this? How does...
Ambre Extreme is another good one from this house. Tea for Two is my favourite though.
Citrus and Wood by Yardley is close enough to fool most people. It's quite cheap, too. However, I'm in the 'just buy the Hermes' camp. You could buy 12.5ml travel minis of both the edt and the parfum...
Get the DHI if you haven't already.
Haha...I'll let you be the judge of that one Derbyman.
Good eyes, guys.
Similar bottle, but not GPH II. It's a British celebrity scent....
Banana Republic State / Eau Fraiche and Ferragamo pour Homme are not correct, but good guesses.
The one you guessed to be 'Only the Brave' is actually just part of the faucet! :tongue:
Yeah, I told him to get some Aventus in.
