Excellent Summer scents !
OMG me too ! Especially expensive shit like Creed...Those sprayers are the worse...
Be different and pick up a bottle of Lalique White.
Great for spring and summer. Kind of a lemony-pencil shavings (cedar) scent...Good stuff, IMO...
No particular order:
Frank no. 2 LA
Byredo Bal d'afrique
MFK Pluriel for men
GPH II would be my second choice for sure...Good catch !
What is wrong with you, dude ? You still on your medications? lol....
LOL....I don't have a full bottle of the stuff ! Are you kidding me? It was a split but rarely do I wear it...It's just too opulent, certainly not a daytime scent.
Interesting...Why would you think I was an Oakley kinda guy? I like the Japanese frames a lot. They make a lot of the titanium frames that are lighter and better quality....Love my Masunaga's !
Almost like finding a hair on your pizza or something....idk....Gives me the "Heebie Jeebies" thinking about it...
For which one are we talking about? My selections or Versace Oud?
Gucci Pour Homme 2
YSL La Nuit
D&G The One
Versace Pour Homme
Sorry but these are too generic. I always dress for success and first dates, I also want to impress. these options...
at least it's not a pube....or is it?
I still love Oliver People's frames but own Theo, Zero G's and Masunaga frames...They're interesting frames and people all the time ask where I got them....Little store in Tampa carry them but...
Rarely do I spray one spray of anything....But Puredistance M is up there and probably Tom of Finland...Both very POTENT..
Not a Oud fan. Many people especially women who smell it on me hate it so I tend to steer away from the stuff but I do like MFK Oud and ADP Colonia Intensa Oud....It's just one note to me that not...
You can look below and find my top 10 for summer thus far....I would include Anat Fritz Tzora too...
Dirty is probably the most long -lasting and indeed a projection beast....I own it and love it however lately Lush fragrances are getting on my nerves for some reason not sure if I'm rehashing my...
Got a compliment today at Starbucks wearing Clive Christian X....First time for me on this one...
Hednic for South Bay....Another great scent for the Summer...
It's cool, man...I don't get the plum in it at all...Maybe at the beginning, but the dry down for me is the best with the orange blossom and cedar combo mix...I get quite a few compliments with it...
YES ! I AM LOVED....Well, at least until the point of actually purchasing it, then I'm not loved so much...lol
Well damn....I was hoping somebody would list my name for Molecule 01 at least....SHEESH!
Anyway, great examples of some super cool BN members....there's a reason they keep coming up over and over...
Same here...There has been so many that I have tried and liked because of BN members like yourself...It's hard to keep track but I'm sure there are one or two that standout because this particular...
alfarom - Lampblack for me...
I have three really good ones:
Hednic - Gengis Khan
Jack Hunter - Murdock's Black Tea
PalmBeach - Tiffany for Men (Vintage)
I own and wear these because of my pals on BN....
Some great suggestions, guys !
I'm sorry....but this thread bothers me. who cares if you are gay or straight? Fragrances work for EVERY sexual orientation. I didn't like the framework of the question and might ask the OP how he...
I love VETIVER....But I have Sycomore, VE, Vetiver Fatal, Lampblack and some others already. Not a fan of the dirty, rooty, kind of Vetiver...I like the Vetivers that are wearable and smell...
ok....thanks guys for the warning !
Anybody tried anything from the house of Blood Concept? what are some "homeruns"?
Some fantastic suggestions and favorites....trying to check the notes on some of these on Fragrantica....See if they might "strike my fancy"....lol
Could you possibly describe how this one smells, Doug?
Mine would definitely have to be Lampblack. But definitely looking at others...I am really liking the UNKNOWN or houses that have maybe 4-5 scents available.
Anything by Kilian or Serge Lutens should fit the bill....These scents are way to strong for me, though...and with this heat in Florida, FORGET ABOUT IT....
These are some great Creed's to sample too....Love these and have each in my wardrobe.
I keep mentioning this but NOBODY seems to listen. It's simply one of the best out there. If you want compliments, uniqueness, easy to wear fragrance then you shouldn't have to look to much...
Best suggestion....hands down !
Dia Man and Honour man.
not sure if I already said this but Lampblack has did it for me...
Me too...it's easily in my top ten for the Summer....I had never smelled it before. Great stuff !
Hell yes, I like it ! Are you kidding me? One of the best tea note scents out there...
Got more compliments with Versace than Bleu.
Chanel De Bleu
Creed MI, GIT
Frank No. 2
Hmmm....I don't have a signature scent per se, but Frank no. 2 would come awfully close...It just works well with my chemistry, gets the compliments, and is extremely easy to wear.
I have to say now that I own some vintage fragrances like Nobile, Tiffany For Men, and Cuiron, I appreciate the artistry and the place that these hold in everybody's heart, past and present. ...
Enjoy this one...I sure do !
NO I totally agree with you and to be fair, maybe I have overpriced some before BUT buying and selling here on BN is a privilege that we all should appreciate. I hate selling on Ebay with all of...
I have not ! Thanks for the tip !
I love Vetiver Fatal and just picked up a new bottle for the Summer...Good stuff. Sorry you feel the need to get rid of your 40 fragrances or downsize. I'm feeling that way too because there are so...
I hate selling on eBay but what else are you gonna do ? You put stuff here on BN to sell and it sits there. Nobody buys anything unless you discount it so much that your basically bent over a log...
Sounds like you might have dropped a couple of thousand on some really nice fragrances.....Hope you can eat for the rest of the week...lol
There's always TV dinners and spam sandwiches...
I'd say this one:
That's pretty heavy stuff maybe even cloying in high heat, like phoenix....I haven't smelled Kiste before to be fair but I have smelled other fragrances from Slumberhouse and that stuff is potent ! ...
Versace Pour homme
I have heard of this house before but never tried their scents outside of liquidnight which was fantastic !
yes...true....Might be better for Winter and fall perhaps...
Need more input....lol
I'm leaning toward Christopher Street myself...It really smells great...In the beginning....The drydown though....Somewhat weird...Strong smoky vetiver, some people describe it as a animalistic of...
I'm wanting to bring a new modern scent to my collection...
Love Murdock's Black Tea...Need to wear this one more often...I forget about it sometimes...
Got one today from my wife:
Frank no. 2
Was it an April Fools joke???
um...NOPE ! She was dead serious...lol
Yes...Im right there with you but love the scent thus far. Confused still though when to wear it. Could be a daily scent or more nighttime, evening going-out scent...Not sure yet.
Owned it...loved it....eventually sold it.
South Water but longevity is awful...
Me neither. Doesn't last too long on the skin either. None of their fragrances do really...
I posted this one a while back but was hoping for some input....Anybody try it ? Thoughts ? It smells a lot like (to me) Eau Des Baux from L'occitan. I'm trying to think of what else it might...
Not saying it's an EXACT match but I think SMW smells more similar to MI than GIT...Just my opinion....
Maybe but Mugler cologne to me has crappier longevity. I get WAY better longevity and sillage with OV than Mugler. Mugler lasts about 1/2 hour on me and then it becomes a skin scent. The deepness...
Excellent selection, IMO...Even more so than the Fraiche.
Balenciaga Pour Homme
I own it but disappointed with longevity and projection.
I like Gendarme too. Smells great and non-offensive.
Chanel de Bleu
any 30ml bottle of Atelier Cologne (I prefer Vetiver Fatal and Cedrat Envirant)
Sounds awesome for the Summer...I might pick up a bottle...Love these small indie-type fragrances. That's why I love this place!
I have it and love it...Highly recommend.
Cedrat Enivrant - 30mL is very reasonable
Vetiver Fatal - 30ml
Eau de Baux
All excellent and fairly reasonable.
I never said it was...I am glad you get compliments with it...Just wondering because you mention it often. I don't think it's the same person always recommending Aventus as a compliment getter...I...
LOL...Hell no ! I would NEVER sell that one...Plus there is a new reformulation for this one that's out...Im talking more about Gucci Nobile perhaps. (And please don't PM me wanting the...
Here's the thing...
I like having vintage bottles of fragrance like Cuiron, Nobile and Tiffany for men...They smell GREAT...But I don't wear them often because they are so rare and expensive
I'm telling you..This is a safe "blind buy" to me and I know a lot of people will come down on me for saying that, but it's amazing and the time it takes to get a sample in the mail and try the...
Yea...I actually wore Pluriel yesterday just because someone mentioned it here and how great it was....I was like "Yea...It IS pretty great....Almost forgot about it !" I think it happens when you...
Um....there are over 400 retail stores in the US for Abercrombie and Fitch and one Boutique for Creed in New York...So that's not possible...lol
Frank No. 2 LA
Scent of Peace for him
Out of the 3 you mentioned, I own and love Creed's OV...However, those mentioned are not my favorite Vetivers. I love VE, Sycomore, and Vetiver Fatal....
Good stuff !
Cmon, Chuck...You're withholding a few bottles...I thought you had at least 5-10K worth of fragrance..
