    Rome/Florence/Naples/Istanbul

    Advice is needed, gentlemen and ladies.

    Anything to look out for at the Rome or Istanbul duty free shops?

    I dunno what else to look out for, on the ground, as far as local specialities—that is,...

  3. Re: why does everyone jump on luca turin's bandwagon?

    Some people are put off by strong opinions. I'm not. Especially when they're coming from two experts who are absolutely brilliant and witty writers.
  4. Re: Which perfume house's concept is boring & the biggest bust in your opinion?

    PdN, obviously. :)
  5. Re: Which perfume house's concept is boring & the biggest bust in your opinion?

    Parfums de Nicolaï. It's like they use a 1993 version of CorelDraw.

  6. Re: If you were to add a new masculine fragrance to Chanel's lineup, what would it be like?

    At the very least, no more Allure flankers. My God. It's like a zombie from the '90s.

    I would love something in the vein of Sycomore.
  7. If you were to add a new masculine fragrance to Chanel's lineup, what would it be like?

    Because, frankly, I find their lineup a bit lacking. I think Bleu was a misstep and a move towards the middlebrow.

    Re: Which formulations Mr. Turin ??

    I believe they're all samples that were procured in 2007. The smaller book contains samples from 2011 and 2007 (and notes any differences).
  9. Re: What is the signature men's fragrance of our time (that isn't shit)?

    Ironically, this is less the case in the US than Europe. :p I don't think I've ever smelled 1 Million in NY. Men seem to still be fixated on Acqua di Giò and Le Mâle, like it's 1999.

    I do think...
  10. Re: What is the signature men's fragrance of our time (that isn't shit)?

    I suppose you're right.

    Let's say the signature fragrance of our time (that isn't shit) is something that a basenoter of impeccable taste might wear. Something that is neither vulgar and...

    Poll: Re: Guerlain Heritage vs. Chanel Egoiste

    The most severe, unsmiling frags in their respective houses. Not that that's a bad thing. I'd have to go with Égoïste.
  12. What is the signature men's fragrance of our time (that isn't shit)?

    I would define the signature scent of the era of my youth, in the '90s, as being l'Eau d'Issey pour Homme.

    For the past decade or so until today, I'd say Terre d'Hermès or Dior Homme.
  13. I love New-York, which Nicolaï fragrance do I go for next?

    What's a good masculine fragrance of theirs that is not New-York?

    btw, I live in NYC and won't be traveling to Paris any time soon, so I'll have to rely on the only two shops in NYC that stock a...

    Re: What was the first fragrance that you bought?

    cK One in 7th grade. Then I went for Tommy in high school and Eau d'Issey in college. ('90s kids represent.)

    Re: What is your favorite TV character wearing?

    Don Draper probably just wears Old Spice. Or perhaps Chanel PM or Caron Pour un Homme. Would Eau Sauvage be too trendy?
  18. Re: Which perfume house uses the best/worst quality bottles in comparison to their price tag?

    Nicolaï need to fire/sue their designers, if indeed they have designers and aren't working from an HP home printing decal set.

  19. Re: suggestions for elegant, sophisticated yet youthful frags

    Acqua di Parma and the Guerlain Hommies would be a good place to start.



    It is great, but I'd describe it as more mature and dandified.

    Re: Most classic male fragrance?

    I agree! Didn't they both make innovative use of new industrial materials? Aldehydes with Chanel No. 5 and synthetic leathers with Knize 10. In that sense, they're truly classics of the modern...

    Re: Any B&M Stores Carry Rive Gauche?

    Look for independent perfume stores. You're not going to find it in any of the national chains.
  24. Besides New-York, what Parfums de Nicolaï frags are worth checking out?

    For men, that is.

    Thanks, everybody. I have tried a few of the Lutens, but, to be honest, I wasn't too bowled over. Maybe I need to spend a bit more time with them or the ones listed above.

    Anyone have any...
