I will be buying from eBay a couple of vintages
Gold has resemblance to Aventus ..pineapple
anything you try will be very interesting and good.
I like en passant and geranium without a real particular reason maybe it was the moment I smell it for the first time. Great house.
thanks for all your comments and for joining me in the tribute. I was sure there is a platoon of basenoters that appreciates the fragrance, keep your comments coming. Even Luca Turin is quite...
so far I have not found anything like it, as I said, I have to try Great Jones yet. For the price of Paco I have tried pretty much under the sun but Paco is Paco.
I would like to call it the most iconic fragrance for men in the past 40 years, a true gem, the best, the titan but . I know it is not, or is it? My subjective appreciation for Paco pour homme might...
Francolino nice watch you have there really nice. I almost pulled the trigger but ended up buying a Royal Oak (Audemars Piguet)

Today I am wearing a Rolex Submariner 50 Anniversary (the one with the green bezel) but I own a couple more. The Rolex Submarine is the most iconic watch in the world, it is all you want in a watch....
medicinal in its opening, cloying and sweet it has an oilish feel to it.
It mellows down and you can smell the smoky note. It also has a leathery note in there , pungent , like wetting a leather...
reading the reviews on Vintage a couple of people mentioned Polo, I assume they are referring to Polo classic. How strong or sublet the similarities are, if there is any indeed. I...
Notes sound interesting but the name and bottle are horrible,,, clearly targetting 18-25 years old people.
I have the following fragrances for swap without their boxes.
I am opened to suggestions, I like fourgeres. John Varvatos is something that I like and dont have.
Tom Ford Noir....
I am testing the newest Gold version.
I like Gold but not crazy about it. I have tried 12 different Amouage already. I like most of them on paper they are stunning but not sure if I will like to...
Am I the only one finding a resemblance between Jockey Club by Caswell Massey and Amouage Gold?
Leaving aside the ingredients quality they both share a very similar overall smell.
I can't wait to buy it sound like a totally must try to me ...I am an avid fajitas of Paco Rabanne.thanks for the input. I am also intriguedo but Hot Always
I am interested in the fougere aspect of the fragrance as I read a couple of people mentioning Paco Rabanne in their review. How much so is it really in the same vibe? Anone could...
Thank you for your valued opinion. From your comments I am still undecided :-) I should buy both
Which one would pick if your favorite style is aromatic fougere?
Thank you all for the good advice very useful.
Different opinions...I already have 1725 and also invasion barbera.
Time for amouage now.thank you for your opinions
Which amouage has the most fougere or babershop vibe to it ....if any?
I am planning to buy two ..one jubilation xxv and a second as per my enquire. Or even something that resemblance...
Sartorial hands down....
there is a lot of panic about reformulations and so on, you can still get many classics from all houses that, not being the same, are close enough
I have for swap a 100 ml (3 1/2 fl oz.) bottle of Eau de Parfum AOUD CUIR D ARBIE. sprayed only once.
It comes in its pouch and box.
I am opened to suggestions, I love fougeres...

My younger sister is getting married in February and I would like to get for her a wedding fragrance. Her favorite fragrance is Dior Escale a Portofino and I would like to buy a niche fragrance that...
Is there anything out there mixing both? they seem antagonist notes but... maybe it works
I have a 60 ml bottle of HdP 1740 with box and cap, all in perfect condition. There is 90% left.
Also a bottle of Bentley Extreme 100 ml. 85% left, box and cap.
and a BNIB 100 ml of...
thanks all for your input, I remember a well spoken fragrance evoking for some reason a light blue color in my mind with a clean cut and soapy vibe and a sublet incense touch.
what is similar out there that I compare it with ?
Lets talked about it: Bijan.
There is a famous latin singer that wears it. I happen to like his music and...
I have the following niche fragances for swap. I am looking for other niche options so please try me.
Fougere Royale by Houbigant. 100ml. Sprayed once.Cap + box.
Orange Spice by...
What are the fundamental differences between IB and 1725? Can anyone pinpoint it for me? I own 1725 but never smelled IB.
hi Wayne send me your details via msg same thing axmaster
I would like to give away two fragrances preferable to newbies. Basenotes has been a great source of opinions and information, so basically sharing is really a matter of fairness. I have more...
I cant find anything that epitomizes the quintessential fragrance for man as Paco PH does. Simply glorious, uncomplicated yet epic. It has the punch other superb iconic men fragrances lack such as...
I gave my sister as a present a bottle of Aqua Oriens and she really likes it but cant find it. She is now looking for something in those lines. Any recommendation please?
Thanks a lot....
Breath of God by Lush
Rien by Eldo
1725 by HdP
I like it, in fact I wore it yesterday and after a shower I can still smell some on me. It is VERY similar to kouros but more refined.
thank you all for your opinion. :-)
I will pull the trigger.
What can you tell me about Eloge du Traite? Its described by many as a great modern fougere and ELDO surely know how to push fragrance genres over the top. What is out there that could...
thanks a lot for your hints and advise I will order some samples, better than blind buy.
good to see you back mate.
blind buy it, I mean. Thanks
Is there anything out there similar to give me an indication of what to expect? I am thinking to blind it.
I read the reviews yet I am interested in your recent fresh interpretation.
Thanks a lot...
thank you all for your great opinions, 90% of the fragrances you are recommending I already had or still have. I will check the 10% that I dont have looking for thar elusive holy grail that never...
In your personal opinion what would be the best fougere in the market. Basically I am looking form a barbershop fougere with class and style. If I can find a hybrid between Paco Rabanne + Rive Gauche...
it should be terminated.
hard to find, in fact I never saw it before.
ouch... it was nice though :-)
oh crap the one i tried is called kenzo Jungle elephant....... is it the same?
the bottle I tried is different it has no zebra hair on top, squared bottle.
Besides Fat Electrician and Rien that I already have what are their also unique and worth offerings???
I agree with you all, perhaps a little cloying yet bearable.
Potent juice, great offering really, quality is also superb. Any fans here?
thank you hednic... immortalle..... same as in 1740 , tons of it. A fougere should not have immortalle as core ingredient
Le Male, the most disgusting fragrance on earth
What is similar out there to Fougere Bengala? I need an indication before I blind buy it.
hednic what is the number that accompanies all your posts in this case ( 3767)
From the new Lubin offerings (excluding Idole) which is the most original/ unique one?
hahaha fair enough
you guys kidnapped my post, at the end, no fragrance discussion.
*hit, they keep changing regulations...
In an increasingly regulated world from today we will be allow to own ONLY the following. Pick yours and let me know.
1 x niche
1 x designer
1 x niche

thanks mate, any input? what is your take on it?
I just pulled the trigger (blind buy). Is the barbershop noticeable or rather very sublet? I never tried Invasion Barbare either so this could open the door to it. I am always in the quest for the...
the one I got opens like Jicky or MdM... briefly. very nice composition and also very estrange
wow got it already. It opens with a blast of fresh civet and then, very fast, goes medicinal / leather. It has a smoky vibe to it, tar perhaps? Incredible this fragrance was created in 1901. After...
I found one bottle still in square shape and icy bands around it. Is the juice in the new bottles the same as the former?
Estratto triplo? wow.... let me try first the regular one before I jump into bigger ventures :-) Thank you all for your kind opinions.
well my sister was in Firenze and she got it for me at the main store, I am very excited. I like Knize Ten and I already went through a bottle. Then I got ELDO Rien and also Cuir Beluga so, I am into...
Have any of you tried it? Is it similar to Knize Ten? I am about to order a bottle as it seems to be a fantastic leather scent, and being from 1901 certainly intrigues me greatly. I have read all...
JPG Le Male. The combination of lavender and vanilla makes me sick, it smells like Plasticine. The same goes for The Dreamer and Caron PH, those two notes combine are a no go for me.
I have been wearing it for a week or longer now and... I am experiencing a need to give it a rest as its getting cloying.... thick.
The rose note seems to be more prominent than I initially...
I am most impressed with such a fantastic fragrance. It creates the most realistic humid pond vibe, rose, green, grey, perhaps one of the...
You should get mouchoir monsieur
Cuir Beluga hands down I bought it for my wife last week and she keeps getting compliments, every time she wears it she is surrounded by a exquisite aura , it may not seem like a sillage monster but...
good suggestions everyone I never heard of Lizzipan and Galimard, good call. Keep the coming.
I am looking for something that, believe it or not, have not found yet (after 200 + fragrances). What I want is something like Paco Rabanne pour Homme but with more body,more potency and...
thank you for your opinion.
I have MpG Centaure but I dont really get any vetiver in there, I also have Encre Noire but it gives me a headache (must be the ISO E Super), I also have Vetiver Haiti...
I just pulled the trigger and bought both blind, I absolutely adore vetiver the wilder the better.
How do you compare both? Which one do you think is better and more original?
I am also after...
Thank you all for your suggestions, very interesting , a few of them I did not know of. Definitely I will try to get a hold of most.
Ok guys help me here.
I would like to get up to 10 niche fragrances.
I bought Idole and Itaska last week and I like them both, however I am not too keen to unisex fragrances.
If you could get...
Itasca by Lubin. awesome vetiver smoky fragrance, pure quality.
thank you for your kind opinion, it seems quite a complex fragrance perhaps covering too many basis. I am somehow tired of the woody/cedar drydown.
I am considering their signature scent for man, any thoughts? I never tried so it will be a blind buy... ouch!
really? I guess I have to revisit Fleur du Male. ...
Polo Modern Reserve or Mugler cologne.
Finally I pulled the trigger and bought Custo Man. If you like Original Vetiver and Mugler Cologne you will enjoy Custo Man. Pungent citric synthetic opening that mellows down into a sweeter/ vanilla...
I have 4711 already.
I never ired Crantree and evelyn thanks for the tip.
I am looking for an eau d cologne with a superior quality, more volume, something that shines. My current favorite is AdP colonia and I also like Cartier eau cologne so I like Armani, yet I am still...
I assume there is something else but ISO E Super and alcohol. Isn't it?
Creed is like Apple products.
it seems Molecule 01 is well known for not being smelled by the wearer but by the others.
I am glad to learn that someone else is experiencing the same. I have never smelled ISO E Super in its purest form but Molecule 01 so it must be the cocktail what bothers me and not necessarily ISO E
Certainly Molecule 01 is a very interesting fragrance regardless it only contains or for the most part ISO E Super. I am regaining interests because I tried it again not long ago and my wife thought...
