Haven't tried Rose Oud yet although read good things about it.
I bought it too. Definitely not disappointed in terms of price and function. (A nice addition to my stash of Aventus.)
Oud group: http://www.basenotes.net/group.php?groupid=15
0.3gr is actually a good amount to sample from. Yes, the very final bit of the oil may get stuck to the bottom but that would be a tiny...
If the OP got a bottle of Anentus that would be a great twist :D
I hope Kilian sends out samples like they did with their last releases. I'm intrigued.
Sote: Rania J Oud Assam.
Thanks Hednic. Is it similar to any other oud fragrance you are aware of?
Has anybody tried Givenchy's Oud Flamboyant? How does it compare to other oud offerings?
Lol, no sarcasm intended. Just thinking about giving the company plenty of time to look into it. Maybe a few weeks is more practical, just don't open it/use it for a 'reasonable' amount of time...
Drop them an email. If no response for 6 months it's yours.
Rania J Oud Assam.
I think that people often make comments without thinking about the impact; it is just idle banter to them, blurted out.
Then there are those who fire heat seeking missiles loaded with negativity,...
Going by memory here as I had the pre-reform ages ago but the newer one is lacking in Oakmoss I think. The older version was heavier in the base and had more depth to it. The current version smells...
My wife is cool with it, she thinks everyone should have a hobby of some sort. She has asked once or twice what I'm going to do with all the litres of perfume. I'm working on getting her more...
I used to love this. Was my signature for many years. Sadly it's been reformulated, wish I could get my hands on a pre-reform bottle :(
Pure Oud By Kilian
Oud Royal Armani Prive
I like it. Bought it straight away after sampling. It smells classy.
Sote: Puredistance Black.
Eau de Gloire Cologne pour l'Hiver Edition Millésimée.
My Straight to Heaven refill pack came with a funnel, an empty atomiser with spray attachment and a longer spray attachment to be used with the refill bottle itself. I bought it about 6 weeks ago...
The prices of Royal ingredients must surely have increased. Main culprits are probably Royal Oud and Royal Pineapple.
Tough question. I have grown to like the house over the last 2 years.
Pure Oud & Extreme Oud
Straight to Heaven & A Taste of Heaven
Amber Oud (which I...
Thats a good point.
Next time you can say AB Silver Lomani ;)
Lol. That scent has already been done :grin:
It doesn't happen often but if asked I will tell. However I really really have to resist going into fraghead mode and talking about perfumes for ages.
Lol, I was also looking at Interlude Man :)
Sotd: Grossmith Saffron Rose
Perhaps get in on a split of some of the more expensive ones?
Grossmith Saffron Rose
I too found Geo to be very generous with samples. I have a bottle of Sandalwood, picked it up for £10 off eBay :)
Lol, I do lots of thinking there too :grin:
Norma Kamali Incense
Amouage Tribute Attar (the white packaged version)
MFK Cashmere Mood
Hello and Welcome!
I'm having a clear out and will be adding items every few days :)
UK only. All prices include tracked UK delivery. Payments via Paypal. All fragrances have been stored in a...
Perhaps the odd full bottle of white packaging Tribute and Homage, Windsor, and some of the classic vintages.
There isn't much I want that I haven't already got my hands on so far by way of a...
Good point, but I've found the scent to be different if say I sprayed above the wrist on my forearm. Perhaps the hairs there trap other odours/whatevers too.
Creed Spice and Wood.
A female student complimented me as she walked past me to get to her seat, something along the lines of "that's really nice, are you wearing perfume?" I got rather embarrassed. Earlier in the day...
Works well for me too.
Bought a back up bottle of Duro today.
Sotd: O Hira
Sote: Spice and Wood.
I don't find Ameer al Oudh to be anything like 24 Gold. After the initial alcoholic blast it's a creamy vanillic oud.
Ameer al Oudh 2 is more like 24 Gold. It is sweet with prominent raspberry and...
Give me a day as I haven't worn it for a while. Will update tomorrow.
I've got Ameer al Oudh 1 & 2. Some of the names sound interesting.
Doubt I'll get to test them.
I wore Safari in my teens. Used to get compliments galore. Unfortunately have been unable to get the vintage :( I still like the new incarnation but reminisce about the good 'ol days.
The tag line is indicative of the target market "real men get more", wow.
Sound interesting. I expected an oud fragrance and lo and behold.
Hmmm. I'll wait for the masses to test this first. I'm sure I'll get a whiff of it soon enough.
I like 1870 and Lp No9 and have a bottle of each.
Incense Oud By Kilian.
Sote: Genghis Khan (vintage).
Hopefully it will already be IFRA compliant, otherwise cue vintage vs reform hype.
I ended up trying things via decants :D
I think OP is referring to a different Amber Extrait, recently released. I think it's this one: http://www.rojaparfums.com/#/extrait/?amber
I haven't tried it yet, will do soon, got a decant on...
I was gifted Faqat Lil Rijal (Just/Only for Men) which I really enjoyed. Excellent longevity and sillage. Very exotic smelling.
La Yuqawam (No Resistance) is a Tuscan Leather clone.
Sounds great! Going to try to navigate the French site!
Sotd: RD's Diaghilev
Sote: RD's Crystal Aoud. The dry down on this caught me by surprise today, delicious.
Avena was mentioned earlier in the thread as being used by Kron: http://www.avena.co.uk/glass-bottles-jars/
I'm worried about bothering myself. I sprayed about 6 times around my neck and chest area before an 8 hour flight and I had a headache. I never get headaches. Lesson learnt; spray lower down the body...
I've only tried 2 of the women's fragrances; Epic Woman and Fate Woman. Whilst both are nice and can be worn by a man imo, personally I'd only wear Epic Woman.
Yet to try Jubilation 25 and Ubar.
Definitely contact them first before forming an opinion and publicising it. It's only fair.
Lol. Crazy list. Closest thing to me would be CK Truth.
For winter, out of the 2, I would have to go with M. The opulence and complexity of it is just something else.
I ended up buying from allbeauty as via topcashback they worked out cheaper, but perfume-click were cheaper if a straight purchase without cashback.
I wear my sample 2-3 times before buying a full bottle. That is with fragrances I like straight off. If I have to think about it then it isn't FBW.
I got a sample of this a few days ago. It's pleasant. Reminded me of 24 Gold and Oud Malaki by Chopard. I have both of those so won't be buying this (I would rather have this than the Chopard so that...
Roja Dove's Diaghilev.
I think they have some huge hornets in Japan? Ouch.
I'd be careful buying off eBay. I recently bought a bottle of Frapin 1270 (off a Basenoter on eBay) and it hadn't been stored properly; the box was all mouldy and damp and the bottle was very grubby....
Must have been some interesting search terms you used to find that thread!
I have experienced it with attars a few times. :grin:
Not too amusing though!
Kilian's Eternal Oud.
SotE: Amouage Jubilation XXV. (Trying to convince myself I don't need a third bottle incase of reformulations).
A back up bottle of Armani Prive Oud Royal.
About 10-15 minutes.
Soleil du Jeddah.
Fetish Pour Homme would be quite apt for Jock Strap Night!
A good question actually. May be a blast from the past of some sort.
Most likely nothing except a few backup bottles of fragrances I love before IFRA destroys them; Rania J Oud Assam, Straight to Heaven, Armani Prive Oud Royal, something from MDCI (undecided) & Sacred...
+1 for Pure Oud.
You could also try Armani Prive Oud Royal and MFK Cashmere or Velvet Mood.
Ufff, strong choice!
I went with Gianfranco Ferre Bergamotto Marino.
1. Amber scent: Amber Oud by Roja Dove
2. Vanilla scent: Diaghiliv by Roja Dove
3. Oud scent: Armani Prive Oud Royal
4. Leather scent: Fetish Pour Homme Parfum by Roja Dove
Sote: Armani Prive Oud Royal.
Sotd: Clive Christian X
Same here for Interlude Man. I've tried really hard but it's not happening.
Probably around 60% of my collection and 90% of all the niche fragrances I own.
