QEDman DaVinci Water
Booster's Polar Ice, Lustray Spice, and any handy cheap bay rum were also commonly used in years gone by. :tongue:
Good Luck and Best Wishes for this project! :)
Make mine Barry's Gold Blend...

One your senior just stopping by to laud the post, DeeOlive. It's been enjoyable reading -- this thread.:dankk2:
...But I'm tired. So I'm off to hunt for my glucosamine-chondroitin tablet, spritz...
This one would also be one of my definite picks for you to break away on...
...But my top pick suggestion for you to begin branching out with would be Pour un Homme -- a gentle giant from 1934...
First, Chanel Nº 5
It's odd that Caron's aren't more "iconic"?!
Pass the Pinauds Lilac Wegetal if you please... :dankk2:
Wasn't M7 an SSD 'fume in 2004?! :confused:
C-M's Lord Ashley Cooper
I really like this scent, too -- it reminds me of the fresh rain water that collects in a country rain barrel... The Demeter you mentioned has been on my "try" list forever! But so far the most...
Best Wishes to you both, Renato!
Bellagio Uomo. Very "ginny."
($15 should get you a quart or so...)
Waaaaaa-heeheeheeheeheehohohohohoho! Just experiencing a leetle uncontrolled drainage! :eek: :D
Maybe I need Moorbeer! :beer:
Oh, and while I think about it...

Congratulations on "Ten," tigrushka!! :cool:
"Yoohoo guard!... Oh security!...
...Detain that woman!
She has seemingly just this very moment incurred a most prodigious -- and quite grotesque -- protuberance under her clothing?!...Egad!...
One of my favorites that gets overlooked and that -- to me -- suggests a vintage 40's-50's fragrance is Irma Shorell Rose Perfume. Its rose accord is that of Turkish rose.
Kansas City Star -- that's what I are! :p
No wonder the opposite team always tells me I need a bigger Louisville Slugger?! :cry:
Sorry, I voted for Yatagan -- I believe it to be the mucho macho maestro of the ones listed! :p
...But for reasons of terribly negative childhood scent-association -- I don't care for it!
Please post your feelings about this one after it arrives, if you can?! I am very close to throwing this into my shopping cart, too! :)
It seems to almost fall into the "unusual/bizarre" category...
Plops down on kneeler...
..."Pater, mea maxima culpa caeca :cool: est Tam Dao!"
(The price and the lackluster accord -- when compared to Tipton Charles Sandalwood -- was my penance. :)
Congratulation! Give the little one a kitchy-koo http://img19.imageshack.us/img19/8916/emoheartcf3.gif from me, m-kay?

Happy bDay, Thrax! Best Wishes. :)
Check these out for a threaded time-line of interesting sightings, musings, comments, and opinions on BN's own recondite wraiths... :p
Thank you, boriqua!
Truthfully, I think it's just fashionable to give Kouros a woopin'?!...
...and IMO -- because of that, more positive comments are elicited -- and so the whole thing just...
I buy Sen-Sen at the good ol' Vermont Country Store... ($10.95US for a twelve-pak!)
...Oh and Kouros GOOD! I have spoken! http://foolstown.com/sm/sumo.gif
Enjoyable post, tigrushka! :)
Yes, it's always such a nuisance for me to have to stop and try to gather up those obnoxious tattered gauze windings dragging along behind me as I shuffle... :rolleyes:
Jesus H. Christ ?!
I was gonna make a suggestion, but... awfuhgeddaboudit.
Okay. So um, WHAT WAS/IS IT? :D
Mine was Verbena by Caswell-Massey (and it's still nifty...)
I think eau de pungent has a nice, virile ring to it?! :p
Say, I thought Larry Dzongkha was that great Miami Dolphins fullback during their Super Bowl dynasty in the early 70's? :confused:
Bah. Probably just another lousy celebrity scent. :)
Counting bottles, atomizers, decants, and dupes...
hm. Let's see heah...
plus the square root of functional arkansas outhouses

This morning will be haircut time for me! :)
This is a nice, gentle old barbershop-type that won't bowl the barber...
This magnificent fragrance deserves better recognition! It just blows me away! Tobacco'd to the nines... :cool:
Joy by Jean Patou
Ysatis by Givenchy
Equipage by Hermes
Bamboo Fraîcheur Végétale by Yves Rocher is the truest bamboo scent I've owned...
...and you can't beat the price with a bamboo shoot ...err... stick! :cool:

Nice avatar, tigrushka!
At some point, Herb Lady, you absolutely must at least sniff this one! Although it is a bona fide Caron -- it is usually at a nice price point and I would be very surprised if you did not come to...
Well, since I still haven't gotten around to takin' a snif of Timbuktu, and since it's blackberry time in the South right about now -- I would "pick" *:) *Mûre et Musc Extrême -- L'Artisan...
Verbena by Caswell-Massey
Lauder for Men
...in second place.
Every once in awhile I will sniff a fragrance that has a note reminiscent to me of Testor's toluene-based model airplane glue from the 1950's and 60's... *:-?
...Voleur de Roses has this note?!
Verbena by Caswell-Massey -- my first real "nice" cologne.
His Ultraviolet Man is also honey-laden... *:)
Jeez! *I've been snoozin'!!
Just saw this! *Congrats to the three of you! *:) *8-)
Extra Vielle by Roger & Gallet -- clove basenote!
...and Eau de Cologne by Geo F Trumper to me is pretty similar to E.V. but I don't see clove mentioned on Trumper's list of notes for this...
I agree that Bandit is the definitive "raunchy" perfume.
But, truthfully -- although I kid about it a lot when everyone is yea-ing and nay-ing The Great White -- I think Kouros smells great! I...
2. Old Spice
3. Fahrenheit Lauder for Men
Honorable Mention: Brut *8-)

Hello there, grazzum!
These suggestions are excellent. I'm not that knowledgeable, but there is a very strong possibility that since they are two definitive "classic" fragrances -- the Eau...
Good Grief, People!!! *8-)
What beautifully displayed collections! I'm soooo impressed!!!
(I keep mine in two Sterilite storage totes!!!) * :'(
Check it out...
Heh. I just read a post on MUA from some gal -- something to the effect that a handsome guy sat next to her at a bar the other day, but that he appeared so judgmental and smelled so vile that she...
Oh yeah! Alpona is world-class IMO!
I could go with a Tabac Blond and Alpona SOTD rotation forever! *:)
"So can you believe it, Prunella?? *Here it is -- my second day on Match.com and here comes an e-mail from some perverted 29-year old geezer...

It worries me just a bit that The Knize Ten doesn't make your barge buoyant?! *;D
...But if it's because "Ten" seems too in-your-face to you, I'm going to vote with the others that...
Lauder for Men
Mmmm-hmm. Yeah. Right. Sure. A likely story.
The old "I was at church" ploy?! Hmpf.
I can see our Light-fingered Loretta now...
...Pssst. Hey buddy. Wanna buy some perfume? Cheap?
The Knize Ten is a "deflowered" *;D Tabac Blond on steroids.
Yatagan is just... well... it's celery salt! *:-/
Accolades for a well-thought-out assessment, scentemental! :)
I highly recommend Gloves In A Bottle!!! *Although it requires more frequent application than some products -- it "seals in" the moisture more effectively than anything I've tried. *It is developing...
I cast my ballot for VdR.

Iquitos is in the money and completes the trifecta! :P

Mayhem by The Goth Rosary. ;D
Punch, whap, ka-pow!
I've worn it several times... *:)
It seems to me that EG's musk note is particularly understated. *It is one of the freshest, cleanest fragrances that I've ever sniffed! 8-)
No, that would be Tabac Blond from Caron's urn in the same general price range. :)
¡Mi vida loca! in fragrances...
1. Mennen Skin Bracer/Ice Blue Aqua Velva -- Wore these while learnin' to use a styptic pencil to preclude transfusions after whacking away at peach fuzz.
I love this Big Time. *I got a free sample from some online vendor a year ago and never even sniffed it. *For the most part, I shun what I feel are "voguish" fragrances...
...so it astonishes me...
Yes, Egyptian Goddess is their flagship perfume oil and it's super!
Well, from a guy's perspective -- Black Opium is one of my favorites of the line. It's dark, heavy, spicy, and probably more of...
...but having their origin in Morocco -- almost all of Madini's perfume oils are reminiscent of the Middle East.

Nothing -- and I do mean NOTHING -- is more fickle in their perceived aromas than the two scents in question...

Carven Vetiver for me too! *:)
Carven Vetiver 8-)
Nah. *He's usin'! *But he's not smiling for a reason!
Trust me. *If that boy smiled -- the shattering din of fifty pounds of cracked "pancake" hitting the courtroom floor would bring every baliff...
Whenever I'm a defendant in a nasty courtroom venue -- I always line my orange jumpsuit pockets with this....... *;D
Best Wishes and Hurry Back, scentophile!
Oooooh! *Lucky you!! *Head for the sportsbook 'cuz here it is straight from a horse's mouth...... ;D
