    Pure Malt vs. New Haarlem

    Which would you choose as a winter signature scent? I have New Haarlem but the sweetness is starting to get to me a little, would Pure Malt be a good replacement?

    Re: Top Complimented Niche?

    Amouage Reflection Man and New Haarlem. Can't go wrong with either of these. New Haarlem on a night out, Reflection Man for more intimate settings.

    Re: Anyone here own Antico Caruso?

    Sounds very similar to the description given to Amouage Reflection Man. I wonder if they're similar.

    How is longevity for you with AC, particularly during the winter?

    Anyone here own Antico Caruso?

    I used to be a huge fan of Le Male but somehow over the years my nose became extremely sensitive to it and now it gives me a headache everytime I smell it. I still like it, but I can't get over the...
  5. Re: Recommend an alternative to Amouage Reflection Man

  7. Thinking of blind buying Invasion Barbare...

    I've heard it being compared to Le Male and Reflection Man which I absolutely love, would you say it's a safe blind buy for me? How does it fare with your average joe? Is it a compliment getter?
  8. Re: Recommend an alternative to Amouage Reflection Man

    I'm not so sure anymore, I bought a full bottle which came in the mail yesterday and it seems a lot stronger than the sample I was spraying from. Maybe the sample was watered down? I'm not sure. Will...
  9. Re: Recommend an alternative to Amouage Reflection Man

    I'm thinking of trying this one out, the description sounds interesting. Are there any fragrances out there with a similar vibe that you can compare it to? And when would you wear it?

    Really disappointed in Oud Wood...

    I've heard this been described as sex in a bottle but I just don't see it, it's just so harsh and sharp to the nose, smells almost like a turkish dessert.

    New user on ebay is selling them, I first thought it was a scam but he's got 4 positive feedback and all he sells are Amouage fragrances. Must be a dealer.

    Jubilation has that generic attar vibe to me, i've grown up with attars so it didn't impress me much. Does Tribute have a similar vibe or is it incomparable.

    How on earth did you manage to finish a bottle? Isn't a slight dab sufficient for a full wearing?

    I've actually given up on this fragrance, it's too expensive to sample till I find the right batch.

    Anything you can compare it to? Would you say it's worth buying just for the drydown or are the top and heart notes the best part.
  30. What is the Tribute Attar drydown like?

    I really want to try Tribute Attar but I keep on hearing about batch variations, but apparently the dry down is the same for all of them? If so, what is it like? Anything you can compare it to?

    Yeah that makes a lot of sense since Aventus is a compliment getter and therefore appreciated by undeveloped noses as you call them. Way to shoot yourself in the foot.

    How many sprays do you need of this stuff for good longevity and projection? Like how many wearings would you get out of 3ml?

    Wow, I thought this would be close at least. I have DHI but find it a lil too sweet, hope Noir de Noir is a more masculine alternative.
