Saffron for me.

I was thinking MKK
I wonder what fragrance he is wearing?
Just got samples of this and just applied. I am pretty sure there is a healthy dose of saffron in this. This is the only note that I am definitely pulling out at the moment. I normally don't like...
Black Afgano makes me nauseated
Eagerly awaiting a bottle of fragrance that you have ordered, but when it finally arrives, the atomizer is suboptimal (happened to me with Creed VIW) or doesn't work at all (happened to me with...
I spoke to a Creed rep at NM in Tampa as well, and they said Royal Oud is NOT being discontinued.
Any chance you can add Windsor and Sublime Vanille to your list?
I would be happy with just a re-release of Pure Coffee.
Got this from the Vegas Guerlain boutique a couple of months ago. They mailed it right to me.

I tend to go heavy on the trigger on almost all of my fragrances when I am...
Is the Terre d'Hermes edt or edp? If edp, I would go with 1-2 sprays max. Otherwise, GIT.
Of the choices, I would pick Ciel. To me it is not an in your face aggressive lavender. But, Beloved Man is really quite stunning, and truly suited for warm weather or just year round for that...
Me: "OK, So what."
She was speaking of Rose Nacree du Desert by Guerlain. It is obviously a big rose, but to me it comes off as genderless, not that it matters. I sprayed it heavy, about six...
Green Irish Tweed always makes me happy
Try Virgin Island Water. I cant wait to wear it a bunch this summer.
Try Neroli Sauvage or Jardin d'Amalfi for your citrus.
I would not layer anything that is already sweet with TV as it may get cloying. The only fragrance that I will sometimes layer with TV is Tuscan Leather, but only if the mood suits me.
Montale Dark Aoud no doubt. The hangee will will know death is imminent when he catches a waft.
Spice and wood
Not being able to obtain this one was driving me nuts at one point. Last time I was down at Epcot I purchased the Givenchy Play Leather Edition, which I really liked the twist on the original Play...
Amouage Silver Man has a hint of plum
The first thing that came to mind for me was Spice and Wood from Creed.
I have well over 100, but I just gave my wife the go ahead to list at least half of my Bonds on ebay. I will never sell any of the Amouage, Creed, or Guerlains that I have acquired.
I have sampled twice, but it has been awhile. I did like it and remember it being a bit on the sweet side. You could tell it was high quality, but just not something I would personally wear. Just...
Amouage Beloved Man
I wore a whole lot of Drakkar Noir and Chaps in the 1980's
Maybe a lot of folks don't have the disposable income to invest in fragrances these days.
Graphite, I will have to swipe your Cruel Gardenia to complete my collection. If you miss it I'll send you a sample :)
Havane, Malt, and Leather...yes. Chili...maybe. Pure Shot...no.
Even non-Aventus threads turn into Aventus threads around here. Further evidence that Aventus is the best perfume ever. But yeah, +1 on luckyscent.
"I tested 1932 a few weeks ago and was disappointed. On the paper it was tempting but on my skin it just became a floral Chanel."
My wife and daughters enjoy it so I bought it for them, but you...
I would use my Royal Scottish Lavender much much more if I weren't so worried that I will not be able to get another bottle when mine runs out. It is my favorite lavender.
They don't smell similar to me either. I prefer New York Oud to Noir de Noir, but I always wear New York Oud in combination with Chez Bond because I get self-conscious when I wear New York Oud by...
Creed and Guerlain
Forget getting drunk on the stuff, I hear Aventus enemas are all the rage lately.
Just ordered one on the site earlier today. Payed $98, but that was with expedited shipping.
Sweet pics Starship - which Xerjoff is that in the pic of your current favorites? Also, what is that white bottle in the back with the four gold dots?
I'm a gambler. I'm risking a blind buy on this one once Bergdorf's gets it in stock. Can't wait.
I could care less, don't live in New Hampshire. Seems a bit silly to me given the current condition most of the nation is facing. Great thing about America, though, is that if you don't agree with...
This is exactly what I had in mind before I opened the thread, so +1.
I need to read all the way down. +2
Like the others have said, you probably just don't like it. Some other really good Creed summer fragrances are Neroli Sauvage, Royal Water, and Pure White Cologne.
I also own both. I recently purchased the Selection Verte Flacon as it may run out soon. I love this stuff, but due to poor longevity and projection that you have mentioned, I apply it very heavily....
I never really know what I am looking for until I sample something I like. I tend to lean strongly towards the following notes: woods, incense, and vanilla in in moderate doses with supporting...
Which one of these are your...
If I remember right, Fierce reminded me a bit of Riverside Drive.
If you are looking for something similar to SMW, then Hamptons would be the closest thing from BN9 IMO.
Atelier - Vanille Insensee. This stuff is cloyingly nasty. Creed Sublime Vanille is a delicious vanilla citrus fragrance, but Vanille Insensee is a diet version with full blown aspartame in your...
I like in no specific order:
1) Bond # 9 Harrod's Oud
2) Amouage Epic Man
3) Guerlain Song d'un bois d'ete
4) Creed Royal Oud
5) Mona di Orio Oud
IMO - When you check out of this life, you can't take your money with you, but the government sure as hell will try to get a piece of it. It is much harder for Uncle Sam to get a piece when it is...
1 spray Royal Oud, 3 sprays Aventus
Does Aedes carry Invasion Barbare? I'd go with an Amouage - Jubliation XXV
That cabinet came from pottery barn. IMO, it is very difficult to find a good quality cabinet to suit the storage needs I was looking for. Most of these cabinets are display type with glass doors,...
Not horribly tech savvy, but I'll give this a shot:
In walk-in closet-
Creed Vetiver 48
Interested - 18 years or so.
Obsessed - mid 30's.
Creed Feuille Verte
Agree, that juice is really yellow. It is supposed to be colorless.
I agree, I didn't particularly care for it when I sniffed it from the sample vial, but I poured it in a small glass atomizer last night and wore it ~ 5 sprays, and I actually really like it. After...
Do you get more/less rose with one or the other, saffron, "our", etc. Does one smell more natural to you?
This is more of a collection question for me. I own the other two Les Deserts d'Orient Fragrances, and although I have sampled and have grown to enjoy Rose Nacree du Desert, it smells really close to...
My Memoir Man from Lucky Scent came without a written note. I wouldn't worry about it.
Aventus to work this morning. Probably pull something from my samples later...maybe Montale Red Vetiver.
God I hope not.
- - - Updated - - -
Probably so, but I can still hope.
- - - Updated - - -
...maybe just a sneaking suspicion or a long shot hope. With no masculines released in 2012 and already a new floral feminine released in 2013. Hopefully Creed has a big surprise in 2013. All the...
Are you talking about blind buying or will you be able to sample? If blind, then I also believe that Homme is the safest (minty fresh lime), although I prefer the Homme Intense myself. If you are...
Yeah, I couldn't believe it. I had purchased two Creeds that day and some deodorant. I asked her if she had any remaining bottles of Green Valley, she said hold on, and came back with a nearly full...
Yeah, it would need to be the cap from the the Green Valley bottle. Clear cap with green Creed emblem on top I believe. For me it is more about a complete piece in my collection than just having a...
Apples and oranges IMO. If i had to pick though, it would definitely be Borneo.
Wore LIDG (EDT) to work, Selection Verte to dinner (was unseasonably warm in the low 80s today), then Acier Aluminum.
Musc Ravageur for me, I also enjoy the intense clove opening. My wife likes Carnal Flower, but go easy on this one.
Received a free tester bottle (2.5 oz) from a Creed rep that was ~ 90% full, but it had no cap. Willing to trade a reasonable size decant of something from my wardrobe for said cap. Sorry if this is...
Almost pulled the trigger on a bottle of Windsor, but the SA was unable to track oned down. Unfortunately I wasnt so lucky this past weekend
Called Saks and they said I could return it, but I couldn't find the return label. Did I throw it away? So I look through two full garbage bags to no avail. I'm getting pissed at this point. I go...
Purchased from Sak's online. How long are we talking before the fragrance would be affected by the bulb? I guess I will just decant this bottle as I go and seal it with the cap that came with it....
Just got a bottle of SDV in the mail today, and the atomizer worked for about 8 sprays, then it crapped out. I put the bulb atomizer on for now, but does anyone know how get these atomizers working...
Black Violet + Oud Wood is pretty nice too.
$94 and there are five of us. Florida residents too. Eating lunch in world showcase morocco at the moment then off to Guerlain. Thanks fir the heads up on givenchy and geir ness

Aside from Guerlain boutique?
At first sniff I was reminded of silver mountain water as well. My wife opened the sample I got today and she says it reminds her a bit of Christmas just like another poster mentioned which I get as...
1. TM Pure Havane
2. TM Pure Leather
3. Creed GIT
4. Creed Original Santal
5. BN9 New Haarlem
I do get that herbal vibe in the top, but I'm not good enough to call it oregano although I know that is what is listed. I do not relate it to dried oregano that one may sprinkle on pizza...either...
Just got a sample of this stuff with a recent purchase. Used about 1/3 of the Lucky Scent sample (I'd guess 2-3 sprays from an Amouage bottle) and not only is this stuff a beautiful smoky incense...
I've been wearing Vetiver Tonka quite a bit lately. A bit more than $200 for a full bottle, but for ~ $150 you could sample four from the Hermessence line including Vetiver Tonka. Definitely not as...
Virgin Island Water

+2 on Eau du Pamplemousse Rose. Have not tried Concentree d'Orange Verte.
BN9 New Haarlem
I think this is right. The Sublime Vanille tester at the NM I go to had an atomizer last time I was there.
For whatever reason, coincidence perhaps, it seems as though the ones more likely to be worm by men (Spice and Wood, Pure White Cologne) have atomizers.
About 10 sprays Chergui, Tobacco Vanille, or Amber Absolute should do the trick. Seriously, though Mugler would be nice or Original Vetiver if you have it...it may last a little longer than Mugler.
I'm wearing both of these tonight in the comfort of my home. Top notes of PM >>>>> top notes of Angel Men. Maybe you're right and Angel Men will lift PM up in the dry down. I pretty sure the Angel...
I will be wearing Original Santal quite a bit again this year. Can't wait either love the stuff
I think I can see lyric and epic on the bottom row to the left.

It says it contains all of the current fragrances
Exactly what he said. For me Angel Men tones down the pepper a bit in ToF and lasts and lasts and lasts.
Just curious. Sometimes I will spray original Angel Men on one part of my arm or neck then spray the flanker on another part. I especially enjoy doing this with Angel Men Taste of Fragrance and most...
