Black Aoud - Montale
Takes some swagger for sure
It's a delicious indulgence that Red Aoud - sometimes I wear it to bed. It's sugary, sweet, Aoud-y, and heavy. I wouldn't dream of wearing it out though. Plus, it kind of makes me hungry (maybe not...
Anyone else here getting similarities to MPG Ambre Precieux? That's all I can think about when wearing. I guess it must be the amber in this fragrance.
I totally agree with the observations that...
Great thread, I think it's worth resurrecting!
+1 for Daim Blond by Lutens
Also Montale White Aoud
Mind has changed. Actually ended up liking Tea for Two.
The sickening title has been swapped over to Montale's Embruns D'Essoeira
That stuff is HORRIBLE. Instant headache, then stomach turn....
This is something I've thought about more than a few times.
I liken it to headphones. A beautiful, detailed pair of headphones like the Beyerdynamic DT880s can produce the most amazing sound,...
Black Aoud. It's growing on me, hated it at first.
BK smells sugary- think brown sugar. La Nuit smells more like Rootbeer. When I smell BK I think of hairy chested young guy in black shirt with the top buttons unbuttoned (and one too many unbuttoned...
I'm trying to figure out if I am close here or if the scents are quite different.
I seem to smell a striking similarity between L'Artisan Mechant Loup and John Varvatos by John Varvatos. Does...
Montale Embruns D'Essaouria
made me gag and I was physically repulsed, but didnt vomit.
When I was in elementary school I left a sandwich in the cloakroom for a week in a container. When I...
Most AXE fragrances, especially the early releases.

sorry to bring this thread back from 2008 but I just had to post about it. I would say there has never been a fragrance that I have tried before that has been so embodied by a song and video as...
I've had this on my arm all day, and with one spray it projects like no other. It also doesn't show any signs of slowing down anytime soon.
The association I get in my head is 'rootbeer.' And the...
I have been on the hunt for a new scent for quite some time now. Having been through many different samples and after trying a few heavy hitters from Basenotes (Lutens Chergui, the Creed lines, etc)...
I can relate to the creaminess of soap that might be apparent in L'Homme Sage, but otherwise I dont notice it. Good luck finding one that you can both enjoy :)
interesting, I actually really like this one~!
nice description though Supermarky!
So here goes:
Im looking for a slim cut wool jacket (either black or charcoal) with a low to medium height collar. Can be button up or zip, but button preferred. Slim pockets are a must, mabye 2...
Green Irish Tweed. Works 60% of the time, everytime
But yeah, that was the one for 2006! Ladies love :)
holy... i could NEVER imagine wearing the Squash Air Spencer. Thats the red one right? i'd smell like my old car :P
Smells great for cars, but id think that it would go very bad on skin
no reactions yet positive or negative
but i really really like this one
Xen - Im still looking for that one
Yeah this happens to me all the time. I get a vivid 'memory' of a scent that I experience as the scent itself for a few fleeting moments
looks waaaaay better
the first anti-blind buy it opinion here:
i'd have to say its one of the more synthetic smelling frags I've tried.
Like cough syrup with sprinkled spices in the opening
dries down to something...
I really dont know what to say to this...
I mean, i guess that could work!
i dont know someone else help out here :p
I think you'd notice a huge difference on the skin, and i'd say that 99% of BNers are going to reply the same and list the reasons. Mostly the skin chemistry
the question as to why...
No! No no no! Please I hope I hope that people dont assign celebrity status to this one a la Creed. Its simply too good! Dont waste this one. Get Ricky Martin away from it! Damned TV :(
what pleasure could an 18 month old child derive from wearing a fragrance ? :S
I sprayed G20 on this morning, and its still going strong. The longevity with this one on me is major
The lavender in the opening is fantastic, but i also dont notice it sticking around long enough...
Iconfig: Thank you! I also notice the pencil shavings. Its so vivid to me that I can see the whole elementary school pencil, all the way from the yellow casing to the eraser. THe whole experience...
I own a bottle of Metal Jeans
I used to wear it quite a lot when I was a bit younger instead of AdG.
I still like to wear it occasionally - reminds me of those times. However, it always had poor...
great idea! I'll have to go on quite the hunt to get all those fragrances for her! thanx everyone
I just recently tried some of the private collection.
Wow, they are really good. Sadly, I cant remember the name of the one that was my favorite :(
I certainly hope it IS out of production. In my opinion Relax reminds me of pepper sprinkled in cough syrup. It burns, then its nauseating. Smelling it is extremely unpleasant.
BUT hey thats...
Hey there everyone
Just thought I'd ask what you could recommend as a present for my mom. I'd like to get her a fragrance since she actually genuinely showed interest in the frags I started...
does anyone ever find that they will find a fragrance that is generally disliked here, like it, and then second-guess themselves? "Oh, this one is actually pretty good... but I guess it cant be THAT...
I admit that I have the same tendencies towards fragrances as I have towards lots of things. Perhaps I have a slightly obsessive personality. For example, with stereos, I became a huge audiophile. ...
Well, just go back to the mall and try to remember which ones you sprayed, and try-try again :)
I put a Montale test strip in my jacket pocket, and the next day the entire inside of the jacket...
wow... you really got going there
yes i agree to a certain extent, but I actually dont mind Truth either
I actually quite like magentism
Doesnt remind me of that at all lol
I'd say thats more Acqua di Gio territory
Another review for The Lion:
The more i've been trying this scent, the more Im warming up to it. I actually really like it now, and find myself reachign for it frequently (ill prob. run out the...
I can still smell traces of Homme Sage and its over 10/11hrs later
Im going to give Homme de Coeur another try tomorrow
If i do would anyone like some decants ? ;)
First of all, they are both very well crafted fragrances. High quality
Homme Sage: reminded me a lot of Chergui, but less sweet. Lasted forever- over 8hrs
Homme de Coeur: honestly, all this...
I tried this one a couple days ago from Perfumeshoppe
Wow, this one really does evoke images of velvet right away
when i started to look around for it though, I couldnt find info on...
where does Tom get those shirts?? I love that style- Tom Ford is an idol of mine lol
Supermarky, your Black Orchid review in another thread has totally sparked my interest in the...
The expensive option:
Editions de Malle Vetiver
Has a strange quality, a reviewer here mentioned that it almost has a quality like water to it in its scent
a very nice vetiver scent, definitely...
My SOTD :)
Yes, I think that Envy gets a bit more spicy than sweet, but it maintains its smooth texture IMO
I think that Floris Santal is a bit less agressive but very similar smelling
Just looking for a few quick comparisons
Im curious about these frags as of late
edit: might as well throw in L'Instant to the comparisons
GIT, MI. Both Creeds
Tea for Two is headache inducing and stomach turning.
That scent makes me feel ill.
my mistake, should have searched first!!
I am just curious if there are any other scents similar to Guerlain's L'Instant. I already really like this scent, but am curious to try one that mabye isnt quite so heavy on the...
Chergui has an amazing sweet drydown, but that might be due to my skin. In any case, its fantastic.
when you guys smell a sample, for example
do you take a full inhale? Like a nice, long 4 second inhale through the nose?
Because I used to only take small sniffs. I just figured out that a nice...
For me it was Polo Sport. I actually traded D&G PH for it once
wow, Im still kicking myself for that one. But then again, everytime I smell Polo Sport.... i am taken back to grade...
Douce Amere! Mmmmm Licorice
Thats quite a good point ben
Of course, I'd assume that there is a point where the pain of losing X amount of dollars does not equal the pleasure of the scent purchased. Lets say SuperscentX costs...
What, no Passage D'Enfer?
Just kidding ;)
but I agree with Acehimself; dont overdo it and be mindful of your location. Crowded in the pews I'd want something that is close to the skin, not a...
No. 88 by C&S :)
Victoria's Secret Very Sexy 2: apparently girls love it, but to me it smells like synthetics
Fendi Uomo: I like to wear this one around the house sometimes, but only then
Roger and Gallet Open:...
arrived today. I can say that I am very impressed with these fragrances
Lion: my favorite. Lasts all day on my skin.
Unicorn: smells fantastic. Also get good longevity out of this one...
I honestly only spray 2 or 3 max
MI always is a compliment getter
it smells so damn good
holy crap... you just described ME at highschool! I had the same colognes too!! :P
What happens when the people decide to take action against the gov't
Also what happens when guys get aroused. Double meaning! ;)
I may be inclined to agree about the SL line.
Aesthetically, I find it a bit odd. But I do like the bottles.
Thankfully, I ended up trying SL scents before I really knew who Serge Lutens was, so...
All Purpose - GIT or Himalaya
Power Play - Antaeus, Creed Imperial
Romantic - Envy, Egoiste
D&G PH... I loved it at first, wore it a few times, then really hated it. I traded it to a buddy who really loved it and still wears it.
But this story has an interesting twist.
A couple months...
I usually go for two sprays. One on the chest/neck, one on the wrist. If I am feeling particularily risky, i'll put one on the chest AND neck. Call me conservative, but I am also a fan of being...
Hello from Vancouver ! :)
Green Irish Tweed!
wait! What was I thinking! I mean actua *BLAM*
Here's just a few quick reviews after trying these out:
Gendarme 20: there is no doubt that the lavender at the opening of this fragrance is amazing; it blends so well and smells fantastic. ...
actually my doctor mentioned that there are some chemicals in Tide that will irritate skin over time
If you want to smell like laundry, try Gendarme for men ;)
but to answer the question, no i...
a skunk's a**?
all I can say is WOW - I was expecting mabye a couple responses, but this is fantastic!
Where to begin: I currently have tried Antaeus, Egoiste, Eau Noir, and Daim Blond. I really really liked...
Here's one to test everyone here: Im looking specifically for a scent that will fit a set of characteristics. I am quite specific with what I'm looking for, but there is definitely...
I have been unable to find information about this fragrance on BN, or about any of his others.
Anyways, I tried it out yesterday. All I can say is that it was much more interesting than I had...
1) Green Irish Tweed
2) Milliseme Imperial
Calling in late (just found this thread)
I will have to try Richard Kidd on Water st.
To me Chergui smells just like a desert. Whenever I smell it i get the feeling of... sand. Lots of sand, swirling around my like that character from the Naruto anime series (sorry if the reference...
Eau Noir, Dior
word, its da shiet
but seriously, 20 sprays Giraffe? Jeez, if I got that volume of juice on me I'd have the entire house smelling of Envy within 10 minutes! Atomic Sillage.
I'd consider Envy...
Acqua di gio... and i dont think ill be wearing it again *sigh*
yes, im glad others share the same view as me on Relax.
I thought I must be the only one that didnt like it after all the hype over it.
One thing I did note though.... the long after lingering...
I find the more you can stick to the juice, the better
I like to keep frags in decants as much as possible
one of the greatest things i found about basenotes was that I was introduced to houses...
Davidoff Relax. It made me feel like throwing up and gave me a splitting headache, and I couldnt scrub it off fast enough.
Oddly though, I gave it another try a few weeks later. Not as bad, but...
i actually checked quite a bit :o
im more into this than i thought!!
but im glad im hooked on this as opposed to other things- it could be quite a lot worse ;)
Im always with my Raybans, I have a few pairs.
Aviators too, I even have some that are half smoked and half clear. I think that Raybans have excellent quality
I tend to agree with all of you here.
However, im curious to know why this is (that the frag develops differently due to area of application)
Heres a quick hypothesis: perhaps due to the seperation...
mabye you're just getting way better looking or something! She never explicitly said it was the TdH...
But then again, mabye it was a combo of both!
Congrats- compliments always feel awesome
How about Gendarme vs the later Gendarme V and 20?
hmmm... I still find Daim Blond to be incredibly smooth and seductive... something about that top note and the leather
Gives me that sharp feeling behind my left eye like someone's trying to drill through there and then starts. Not good.
I dont know why, but every time I smell Bois D'Argent on myself, a frag I really like, I get a hunger pang right at the top of my stomach. Its without fail, everytime: even if I've just had a big...
I have the old Burberry London for Men in the clear bottle
such a distinctive fragrance. Whenever I smell it I am reminded of a branch with berries on it... call me a victim to suggestive naming...
Im sorry to have to continue this thread in this section, but I'd like to be able to just quickly drop my $0.02 about the issue here.
I dont believe that gay people can be stereotyped, as they can...
any update on this?
Whats the Canadian equivalent? :o
