If you like Acqua di Gio, i'd say you should go for the Essenza one instead of the original.
The fruity aquatic aspect is much stronger and does pretty well in the heat.
Guerlain 180 Ans de Création
actually have it already but It is such a great perfume and like to see this in production in the near future.
better yet, would be nice that it becomes part of Les...
Forget to mention..
If you have already past the time limit, don't give that up and tell them this is your first time to file a chargeback and very often case like this usually negotiable.
Contact paypal and tell them you will be filing a chargeback with your credit card company if they won't handle the case. Skip the customer service representative and demand to talk to...
Bleu de Chanel is an aquatic?:confused:
I thought it was on par with Egoiste (Chanel) or Fierce (A&F).
Couple months ago a buyer from LA who seems to like Chrome Hearts Jewellery bid a fragrance from me on ebay but didn't pay. Sent couple messages to him and hope would get an answer because i needed...
He is indeed a very talented perfumer.
Have Cologne Blanche and Absolut Pour Le Matin on both arms right now and both seem to share a faint resemblance of that fresh citrusy powderiness that Mr....
Vegan's diet consume a significant amount of soy products as it is one of the main source of protein for vegans. Although it may not easy to find a legit organic soybean these days, try to find an...
It's fine, no worries.
Google image search Cologne Blanche, a discontinued fragrance from this line and you will see some pics of the previous packaging just like the one that you have.
From all three on your list, i like Voyage d'Hermes.
Haven't tried the EDP yet, but gone though one 35ml EDT in one summer. It's kinda give you a bubbly refreshing feeling from a soda pop.
Those do look like books and you know what, actually you gave me an idea of maybe some bookshelves shots.
a soliflore rose scent.
would have liked Lumiere Noire homme if i could smell it, it is one of those scent that goes mute on me.
Tried it couple times every once in a while in the past, nothing bad happened actually. The color would turn murky and the texture of the shower gel start losing its consistency and become watery...
Screening is very strict at Givaudan, in general the requirement is based on the level of school achievement to determine admission and they only recruit 12 people each year.
In this three-year...
After the theme song..
My pineapple brings all the boys to the yard,
And they're like
It's better than yours,
Damn right it's better than yours,
I can teach you,
But I have to charge..
Is there any Kiehl's store/counter/pop-up near where you located?
They have one named Vanilla & Cedarwood and it is very close to what Tobacco Vanille smells like.
“Eau de cologne was very fashionable in the 1920, 1930. It was sold in the mass market and worn in the great quantities. Now it has practically disappeared. Eau de toilette was created to take...
I put some in ziplock bag even at home. i know..i know..
or simply La Parfumerie ; like Chocolatier to the foodie.
Maison Molinard is another good example. La Parfumerie, a well established perfume brand without an exaggerated price tag.
Me either, would rather categorizing those exclusive lines to 'Luxe', which seems far more suitable.
That's the reason why pricing and packaging do play a very important role when launching a perfume or any products. Like gourmand sandwich, what so gourmand about it? i have no idea..
Here's something i dont understand...
Rarely hear people use the word niche to describe skincare products where there plenty available on the market, probably none. But to perfume, whatever hits...
Just like many things in life, i don't like to be bounded by some unnecessary rules, so there would not be any specific scent for a specific occasion here.
Have not tried Mona di Orio Vanille.. but Musc Ravageur opening smells like salty spicy coke then later merges into a cozy musky scent, and the vanilla note in MR is rather subtle actually.
Appreciated your efforts very much Andre.
i like the step by step photos, kinda feel like ifixit for perfumes.
What the artist (perfumer) meant to portray,
what the artist (perfumer) actually did portray and
how we react, as individuals, to both the intended and actual messages.
saw this and think that...
Red rash from various Serge Lutens perfumes, but not sure rather is the alcohol base or the ingredients.
The entire line from Boadicea The Victorious Perfume fit the theme quite well.
and Decorous for Khaleesi and her fire dragons.
Paul P anytime!
(Neroli Neroli sounds pretty good and actually i was just browsing to see any boutiques carries this brand in Pacific region and saw that page)
:D..HAllen, didn't realize the resemblance.

@Georgio, that's a nice find, quite stylish.

My favorites from L'Art et la Matière.
Would like to have an Arabian perfume and perhaps something from Amouage actually. The ingredient fenugreek doesn't scare me much as i don't really mind it in various cuisine like dhal or other...
Although not very familiar with Chanel offerings but Beige has also been on my radar for a while as well. Guess that might be my first pick from this brand.
F. Malle's French Lover definitely.
These two are pretty nice, an image of a moment.
The pushers are vendors, trying to get you into their products. Here's a tip, come in close to the beginning or end of store hours. Almost never a vendor there then. Don't let vendors push something...
How to pronounce 'amazzzzzzzzzzing'? :confused:
Perhaps it is not intended to be a statement piece in the first place.
Not really Gab, but very interested in this field.
Along with Vietnam, you guys probably have some of the highest grade agarwood around, and the best is from the northern Kalimantan i heard.
didn't know there many of them were in Jakarta earlier..
There couple L'Erbolario points of sale in Australia, perhaps you could give them a call to see if they have any Neroli Neroli in store.
Try to maintain a collection of 50 max by following 'one in, one out' rule. About maybe 100 or less of samples and decants.
Maurer & Wirtz (4711) introduced a range of eau de cologne a few years back that based on fruits and herbs. Have only tired a couple of them but quite impressed for what it is.
Blood Orange &...
a very cheapo would be 4711.
Got a decant of Vetiver pour Elle and wore it couple times but still not quite sure about it..
There an etched code number located near the bottom in the back in case you wonder.
Only tested Granville couple times and remember it was somewhat a similar to Armani eau pour homme. An aromatic citrusy scent but nothing salty.
sort of like a super-sized sample tube actually.
Never cared much how other people spend their money, because that is really none of my business. So the words snob, or snobbish to me are more like an attitude, which i am still practicing every...
Congrats on your Cologne du Parfumeur bee Ivory88.
My pick today when i had to run some errands this morning. The scent is still AdG but with a good improvement, kind of give me a faint spearmint and fruity aura surround me when the weather is...
Acqua di Gio Essenza
the magnetic cap is a little nice touch..
yup, once bought a bag from them for like 50%off and uff, glad i waited.
Maybe some other times Ulsterman, :)
btw, there two BV outlets in US, one in CA near LA and another one in NY. By outlets i don't mean cheapo stuff, they usually have a decent verity of selection...
Perhaps ask your friend contact those brands directly to see how they would response, like do they know that shop fill up empty vial and sell them as sample to customer and such. It might not leads...
Some backups..Bois d'Arménie, Cuir Beluga, Oriental Brûlant.
Les Parisiennes et les Parisiens: Liu and Derby...
There's a blogger named The Non-Blonde that i like to read her reviews of perfumes from time to time.
Perhaps you could stop by her's blog to check out some of the reviews and writings.
Never seen Lucertola in this color before, they usually come in yellow or other brighter colors.
Great choice there, Tourmaline is a very color indeed, i too have a calf tote bag in this color, a...
Is it a lizard wallet?
Their stingray slg are pretty good too actually, it holds up quite well and pretty much grease/waterproof.
(sorry not meant to confuse you..just thrilled to see another...
Fuel for Life Homme from Diesel has a very prominent raspberry note. So perhaps to give it a try if you don't mind a little sweet thick scent. The raspberry is pretty much there and you will...
Wore the last drop from a small sample today and will be getting a 75ml.
The sheer metallic from currently edt seems has gone or became less obvious. Fruity notes boosts up a bit more in this...
been told strawberrynet usually updates their inventory around 7-8pm HK time, (around 9-10pm in Sydney).
so perhaps you can check it out around that period of time.
^ fingers crossed apple sauce :)
Les Parisiennes or les Parisiens
Just tell 'em you are wearing Womanity pour Homme.
If they asked what's that? Just answer it: huh you didnt know? where have you been?!:laugh:
Understand Creed's perfumes are costly and you're hoping to find one exactly as you expected. But i think the whole Aventus batch number scenario has been blown out of proportion and people begun...
Amyris Femme $120 Sold
*all couple sprays missing. comes with original packaging.
Amyris Homme $130 new...
Nah southerngardens, take it easy, no biggie actually.
Have recently getting interested in Les Parisiennes line and have a Derby bee reserved, maybe Liu will be next.
Attrape Coeur sounds like...
Just a guess..
9Z01 from 2009 (previous formula)
1S01 from 2011
Dior Homme 8R02 from 2008, which is Olivier Polge version.
(have a Dior Homme here that bought in 2007 with a code 7B01)
Probably a good idea to buy it at A&F store, i mean the sales tax is less than US$9 and you dont have to concern about shipping, getting fake and all that stuff.
Las Vegas, NV currently is 8.1%
NYC, clothing and shoes over US$110 are subject to general sales tax, which is 8.875% currently.
im not sure about fragrance, perhaps some NYC residents can answer...
Guess that's the color Shadow, it's pretty nice how the color changes under different lighting. From olive green to taupe and ash-grey later.
The price should be the same on their website.
But remember on top on that, you need to add sales tax depends on which county (state) that you are going to visit.
Age is just a number and i DO really admire those senior 65+ folks still have a heart of youth and not living a life that is bounded by some unnecessary rules or others expectation.
Is Mysore same as Santalum album?
A local company here named Choi Fung carries many essential oils and they seem to have Santalum album over there, the prices are about hk$144 for 15ml and $744...
Those from this line pretty much share the same powerful strength. But like the other members suggested, instead of reading the notes on the web, you should go try them in person.
III and IV are...
Guess sodastream means L'eau d'Issey has already had numerous flankers over the years since the original came out in the 90's. L'eau d'Issey should earn a role in Cloud Atlas, the movie.
Just checked out their FB page, gotta say some of their recent ad prints look a lot like Serge Lutens crossover SIGG.
A Men is like full cream milk, and the flankers are 2%, non-fat and skimmed.
Thank you!! 30 bucks a pack sounds pretty good:laugh:
been wanting to try the benzion one for ages and the rose seems not bad either.
^Very nice very nice.
Did you buy those papier d'arménie here?
cut a (small) piece of tin foil, roll up into cone shape, cut the pointy end and volia!
Try Mouchoir de Monsieur.
L'Occitan, a very understated cozy fragrance, not a flamboyant statement piece but still unique in it's own way kind of scent.
or Eau des Baux if he likes vanilla, pretty much can't never goes...
Orchidee Imperiale (home fragrance):laugh:
180 Ans de Créations...
The card comes with the bottle mentions that this is a contemporary amber fragrance, and from what i see there are two parts; the first part is a sheer combination of the classic with a tiny bit of...
Bvlgari has another tea scent which is pretty good and a bit different aside from the usual green tea one.
Eau Parfumee Au The Rouge, the one with a red packaging.
Are you a real Chinese? cause what you spammed above does make any sense, just some fragments that said 'do you know that scene, sitting with brandy and cigar on a chair, stroking a dog on his lap....
No rule at all.
Sometime i used to wear some cheapie (demeter and such) to attend some snobby events when i know some regulars there that like to brag about "sigh~~how my husband only wear niche...
Like: Vanilla, Heliotrope, (Bitter)Almond and Neroli (L'eau d'Hiver comes pretty close for my ideal of tailor-made perfume)
Apricot (a likable scent but for some reasons perfume that...
^^Didn't know it was way back to 2000, thought the new code started when Thierry Wasser becomes the in-house perfumer. But then again to think of it, they have cosmetic/skin care departments that...
Seem the four digits code start from 2008 onwards.
If i remember correctly, 9X01 means it was made in November, 2009.
The number 9 represents the year and the letter X represents the month.
Perhaps you can check out this thread for more info....
Anytime! i was tempted to buy those earlier but couldn't get passed the price and the shipping fee too. The shipping is like half the price of the fragrance.
I just checked on L'Occitane US website and it seemed they either run out of stock or something, only other toiletries products from this line available at the moment. Perhaps try give them a call to...
There some both dark and white Cioccolato Mon Amour on ebay Italy.
I'd also recommend Iris Ganache from Guerlain if you liked white chocolate fragrance. The ganache in this one is like in between...
If you liked something less mainstream, there's an alternative to AdG which's Verdon from L'Occitane. Superb refreshing fragrance and very similar to AdG that i am thinking to get one or Essenza.
From the press release i read; the perfumer has replaced the Calone note with something new called Cascalone, which supposedly gives a fresher spring water sensation at the opening and a new element...
Have not caught up much with the fear monger lately, didn't know it's already spread to the cosmetic industry.
