Habit Rouge: pink-golden pollen
My niece, an ambitious school girl, has decided for her final work in chemistry, to elaborate three perfumes, representatives of the different families in parfumerie, that is to say: a fougère, a...
New bottles, specially caps, feel cheap, not wooden solid caps just a thin surface. Encre Noire's cap is much better in terms of quality feeling: solid piece of wood.

Winter is coming, the air is colder day by day, needing an olfactory warm embrace
Some options in mind: Pure Havane, Pure Tonka, even Héritage edp.
Your wise suggestions are welcomed.
Spring: the pink-golden pollen of Habit Rouge.
Summer: Caron Third man just because must be used, sometime in the year
Fall: the nuttiness of Valentino Uomo or perhaps LIDGE
29 € ... You have to choice between:
A 125 ml. EDP Lalique pour homme LION (Roucel's)
B 100 ml. EDT Prada Amber pour homme (the regular not the intense.
I'd like to know your decissions
In my opinion, it reminds a lot to Valentino Uomo, but with almond instead of hazelnut. Very nice but lacking an "own voice".

In my opinion, after blind buying it reminds a sort of "Troisième Homme" on tuberose
Two blind buys for me, and ... Maybe redundant: both fougères one towards oriental realm and to de dark leather the other one.
So my question to your experienced noses: Or Black 2014 or Balenciaga...
Violet in masculines is a misunderstood note, usually linked to old barbershop lotions or old era femenines, Grey Flannel and Fahrenheit are two honorable exceptions.
But after Fahrenheit......
Eau des Îles (Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier)

Any kind soul could send me a sample of Dsquared Potion Royal Black?

Naming: Eau Sauvage without water

"...Now, a fat electrician in New Jersey, he is cursed with the memory of his glory days. Because all beauty carries within itself the knowledge that it cannot last"
Such an elusive perfumer... his "opus" is both scarce and awesome: Yatagan, Halston Z-14, Private Collection
Any information about his life?
Nope, I don't take it personally: when someone says "puaj! Your cologne stinks!" I just answer "your breath is worse" nothing personal.
A*mem pure shit
A fecal twist on the original composición
the wonderfull, awesome, great Caron's Third man (Le Troisième homme)
Considering a yummy amber for Christmas, my two better contenders are Ambre Precieux by MPG (new formulation) due to the balsamic side and in other hand Parfums d'empire's Ambre Russe due to its...
Self confidence edp.
Eau Sauvage Parfum
Masculine line from Maître Parfumeur et Gantier and Caron
Habit Rouge edt (Guerlain)
+1 Hermés Equipage
Prada amber pour homme

Redundant? Wich one would you pick?
Uh... If she's confident enough to cumpliment your frag... It'

The video is utterly ridiculous:
"I created this fragrance to trigger your full potential ".
"this fragrance is designed for the man who catch the eye of every woman"

Do you think is something general? something due to Fragrancex storage or to the fact of being a tester?
A currrent formulation bottle, a tester boxed in plain box from Fragrancex
My best mixes:
- 2 chest sprays "L'haie fleurie du hameau", a jasmin soliflore by L'Artisan + 2 neck sprays Caron's Third man
- 2 chest sprays of Diorella + 2 Eau Sauvage
- Christmas mix:...
Don't know if is just my bottle but Caron's "Pour un homme" just beat and run
Fougère Bengale is a sort of "pop art" version of Sables
Enhancing mix: 1 spray of Diorella on the upper chest + 2 neck/hair sprays of Eau Sauvage

Nobody found similarities between Habit Rouge structure: citrus— neroli—opoponax—hint of leather and the "Ideal pyramid": citrus—neroli—tonka—leather? Its a marzipan Habit Rouge?
As an ex-compulsive fragrance buyer, I should be careful with my buying frequency to avoid the "dust on boxes" syndrome
Right now I can buy a new one, I'm considering:
- MPG's Parfum d'Habit...
I'm a Bowling Green's user, but sadly nowadays is hard to find online -most after shave or small bottles.
Which one could be the closer alternative to its wonderful celery smell?
Héritage Guerlain: ten lost years in a stupid relationship.

I love the masculine line of MPG: unusual, dramatic, butch
Is Caron niche? (low distribution, not designer...)
If so: 1 Le Troisième Homme 24€/125 ml.
2 Yatagan 26€/125 ml.
3 Pour un Homme 22€/ 125 ml.
"Guerlain Homme" (mojito's appeal)
"Vanilia" (L'Artisan Parfumeur) or its MPG counterpart "Fleur de Comores"
"Beyond Paradise Men"
Even Le "Jardin Après la Mousson"
TOTALLY AGREE: that's a way to pervert a free opinion forum. STOP FREE ADVERTSING
Both are dated 80's and 90's, but Antaeus right now is post-dated (80's are back).
Egoïste is a sandal-fruity soup, go for the ashes of Antaeus.
Rive Gauche Pour Homme:
People don't catch retro wink, instead, smells old barber lotion.
Thank you for your opinions
(and excuse my english: choice...)
I think both fragrances share the spicy exotic feeling.
If you should choice one, wich one would you choice and why?
Worst: you and your mum at the doctor; the doctor suddenly asks: " Oh! Ms. X (my mum) what a nice perfume are you wearing!... or is that your son?"

Past August, I oredered a 100 ml. bottle of Encre Noire, they told me that 08/28/09 was shipped,...
In my opinion Dior Homme epitomizes the masculine trends of 00-10
Vetiver Extraordinaire (didn't exist then)
Without hesitation: Le Troisieme Homme de Caron.
Fougère + jasmin-carnation + spices
(y encima se consigue nuevo en gragancenet por 26 €/ 125 ml.!)
Another vote for Caron's Troisieme Homme
In a more girly (strictly floral, more accurately): L'Haie Freuri du Hameau (L'Artisan Parfurmeur).
I did an experinent: my mother was wearing L'Haie...
Buy it! blindly, without hesitation, even if you won't wear it, even if you think is dated...such that beauty should be in any wardrobe
Talking about PuH: how similar/different is to "Impact pour Homme"? Is just an eau de parfum, a more concentrated version or is another animal?

I'm considering to buy Aoud Cuir d'Arabie, but I have seen that Montale has launched a new Aoud-cuir frag: Aoud Leather, I would like to know the main differences between both fragances.
Sycomore Chanel (hiperluxurious and masculine).
Vetiver extraordinaire by Frederic Malle editions de parfums.
Aoud Cuir d'Arabie by Montale (maybe a little bit "complicated" but...

Nobody perceives similarities between Coriolan and Grey Flannel-Narciso Rodriguez Him?
After Manzanita's adquisition some of the Diptyque's first frags were discontinued, L'Autre among them.
But some people say that is not discontinued just limited its distribution.
So Should I...
IMHO very femenine and loud, I can't bear hibiscus seeds in any fragance .
I bought blind a 30 ml bottle and passed to my sister that is crazy about it.
Guerlain Homme: forget all the prejudices, is a fantastic fragance that match perfectly your target
Virgilio: a little bit more bitter but unique (see German Ebay, I think there is a bottle)
Another silly question (I'm bored )
Pick one famous perfumer and propose what's in your opinion his/her best and his/her worst creation.
I'm very curious about your perceptions.
Is one of mu favourite its only flaw is projection/longevity (not totally bad, but could be better)
But at the end...
Is discontinued? or limited to central Diptyque's boutique?
Extra-heavy: Lorenzo Villoresi Patchouli
"Aoud Cuir d'Arabie" de Montale 5 stars!
I would like to know his description to justify the maximun score.
Finally no Montale-revenge
