A nearly full 3.4 oz bottle of Musk Blanc - Robert Piguet
You don't have to control every variable. Just run multiple trials so that the signal to noise ratio is high, look at the distribution of distances to make sure error variance is normally distributed...
On the whole, I agree with Kagey's point.
However, A sample size of 4 can be reasonable if you are using repeated trials (seems like you did) and you have good reason to expect a high signal to...
Since most of my bottles are about 100ml, but there are a fair bit that are less, ~200bottlesx100ml=20000ml, spray about 10x so ~1ml a day, though this varies from fragrance to fragrance, some...
I've never found the smell of oud incense like (or at least what I'm told is oud). I find it rather funky, like sweat. Though not dirty sweat.
2. Vetyver (Givenchy)
4. Terre d'Hermes
5. Vetiver (Guerlain)
Eau des Baux
I think you're talking about culture and not nature. But that's a long debate. Anthropology is full of surprises. Please look at research beyond the United States. Thanks.
I disagree. I don't think there's a clear fact of the matter about what the "nature" of man is. Much less one that is extroverted &c. I am an introvert and I am into this hobby. Please discard...
Any of the top 3 are good choices, really. I'd personally go with Reflection if that's the one you're most comfortable with.
A hint- you can email Amouage for some samples. It worked for me, at any rate. Not sure about MFK.
I have a professor who wears whatever he likes. It works.
G: Geranium Pour Monsieur by F. Malle
No real method. I just kind of go with whatever's around.
This man knows what he's talking about.
I don't see why the second association would piss you off? That's what it is for me, at any rate.
You could just buy up a bunch of GPHII while they're still floating around (and they are floating around allover with etailers and what-have-you) if you're that worried... it's not easy to find...
Incidentally, I was wearing vetiver tonka today, and this girl, who also happens to be a friend, told me that it smelled like perfume, not cologne. I kind of rolled my eyes.
hmmm wasn't there speak of pure coffee being sold again? what of that? I don't really care about PM at this point (have more than enough)
When you go back to retest Timbuktu, try Passage d'Enfer as well. Also if you want a straight up anise that isn't sweet and lasts all day, Guerlain's Aqua Allegoria Anisia Bella is your ticket. I...
Sorry, but I don't exactly agree with this. People cannot always justify their preferences, especially those (myself included) who cannot really distinguish notes and ingredients, and often fabricate...
None. People should be able to find out for themselves what works and doesn't work for them.
Angelique sous la pluie - ok sillage for 1 hour, and then 2 hours of skin scent.
I'd imagine whatever you wear would get 'washed off'..
Try xmen's sales thread ;)
Don't know what M7 or Egoiste have to do with it. I'm slightly surprised at Polo Black making it on there.
Lol DavidBee... 4 creeds?
From what I know of the houses you listed, Diptyque would seem the most appropriate for summery scents. I'd say Philosykos and Tam Dao.
Lutens you could probably get...
Plain ones are refill bottles. And much cheaper. (5+ year old thread, btw)
Those are actually really cool looking bottles imo (though if I do end up buying any HdP, I'd go for the large size anyway)
!! Actually I'm in Chicago and the temperature will drop again tomorrow >_<
Their selection is a little limited. But I'm thinking Hypnotic Poison.
I didn't see any rose scents in your wardrobe, or I'd recommend Midnight Poison.
Daniel - Midnight Poison (unless Laroche decides to pick one for you)
Laroche - Pure Havane
I 180'd on Grey Flannel (from dislike to like). The initial blast was definitely what was off-putting about it for me originally. Now I can stand it, plus it fades away rather quickly as subhuman85...
I grant that I used the word 'data' as if it were singular once. I also grant that I did not hyphenate that compound modifier. I think the comma question is beside the point, which was emphasis.
Reviving a 4.5 month old thread to... promote creed? Particularly when Dmitri just posted a thread on a scent containing real oud? I know this horse has been beaten to death, but those 20 forum...
Sorry, but this is uncritical reading... correlation does not imply causation correlation does not imply causation correlation does not imply causation.
Now that that's out of my system, many...
I hope you meant creedence :p
Maybe an Amouage or a By Killian. I wish somebody was willing to just dump $500 on me.
Since when was Caron classic?
When somebody says "I am in college", a lot of information about lifestyle choices is missing. For example, I can go to a small liberal arts college or to a large state university, then I will either...
I'm a college kid and none of my creeds have been mentioned in this thread. :P (Caveat: have a bottle of BdP coming)
Eh, one day someone asked me what I was wearing, and I sort of stopped and thought about how best to reply, and then I went ahead and said "L'air du Desert Marocain". I'm almost certain my...
Straight from my wardrobe:
Vol de Nuit//Guerlain
It's not a bad idea, but I've passed the point of no return, as they say.
Pluran knows what he's talking about. Hopefully this won't kill Creeds for you, though.
Hm, I'm also a 20 year old college student. My wardrobe looks quite different from yours. It depends a lot more on what you like doing than the fact that you are a college student to be honest. I'm...
Other: air freshener
I think it's not advisable to overstimulate your baby until at least three of four months of age.
There's some evidence that suggests that the distress response (crying) is a function of the...
womo531 is actually hosting splits of this on the marketplace. ;)
Incense Rose by Tauer
Sorry... but no. This is misinformed. First, you're conflating the olfactory system and the vomeronasal (accessory olfactory) system. The former detects odors. The latter detects pheromones. It is...
Actually, the title of your thread says "sedce", which I'm assuming means seduce, which seems to be a little more than simple attraction.
That said, it depends on the lady in question.
Depends on the frag. 30 minutes should be more than enough for most of anything though.. Just don't stand near her, I guess.
Re: Gucci PHII strength and projection
In my experience (and for others, if we believe their reviews), this hangs pretty close to the skin. So I wouldn't be too worried about overspraying (imo...
Yes and no.
If you're going to worry about adverse effects then it's likely to be a mild stressor, and there's pretty convincing evidence that a prolonged stress response is bad for you. On the...
As far as I know, it's not a competition. Yes there are people who can't spend that much on fragrances, but that isn't necessarily a bad thing. Better to spend less than more on this "hobby" imho....
Not to sound conceited, but people actually do notice things. Of course, individuality is potentially a good thing--it means that people will notice you all the more.
Pal Zileri Sartoriale topnotes smell pretty much identical.
Looks pretty mainstream basenoter sweet hype. I think the niche extension of that wardrobe would include Musc Ravageur. If you're considering the Amouage/Bond price range, Frederic Malle is safely...
There was probably .30 ml in the sample vial I had had. I applied it all at once and it kind of sat close to me the whole day. But I could smell it.
try bvlgari black
Well, if it's alright, I'm in
Trumper's Extract of West Indian Limes
Of course, it barely lasts over an hour..
That's a pretty decent starting lineup. To be honest, there's a lot of stuff out there and you'd probably do better going out and exploring yourself. Don't let basenotes color your expectations or...
L'Air du Desert Marocain
Love in White, maybe.
Hm... AB "sounds" interesting.
The line doesn't seem as provocative as, say, Secretions Magnifique though.
Not a sunset in summer fragrance. But if you're looking for a zen moment, Timbuktu imo.
I haven't seen your top 10 in ages :p
I find Guerlain Vetiver light and inoffensive. It also opens up with some citrusy topnotes.
I'm interested if it's alright.
Thanks as always.
Wonder what you'll spend the $600 on instead. LOL
This thread needs some chlorpromazine.
Sign me up! And thanks as usual 30R
From Giorgio's excellent collection:
For me it's seasonal, but also motivated by (1) wanting to use up my samples and (2) wanting to use up my less-desirable scents.
Of course, there are "special occasions" where I have to pull out...
I'd say Quorum>Z14>Grey Flannel. (I have all 3)
GF is an acquired taste.
I wasn't alive then :D
Hey 30R, thanks for arranging this. I'm interested, can I be the second member of one of the groups?
Speaking for myself, the progression was:
(1) Your step 1
(2) Blind buy "cheapies" because of decent reviews and their price
(3) Your steps (2) (3) and (4) in the opposite order.. e.g. I bought...
I don't get how exactly "icy palm leaf evoke[s] a tropical paradise."
+1 Bertrand Duchafour. Incense.
(1) It doesn't last on me
(2) I've really grown to dislike the way it smells
(3) +1 Blue sugar is sweeter, but I literally felt like I was getting diabetes from smelling that. Horrendous.
Sorry I wasn't specific about "masculine", I wanted to leave it open. As we know, it's a rather ill-defined term.
I already have Grey Flannel and Insense. But the list right now will keep me...
I'm interested. Looked on the other thread and all I saw was rose rose rose.
So apart from The Dreamer and Dior Homme, what have you?
Oh, let me add: Mat; Very Male by Masaki Matsushima, should try to get it while it can still be had for really cheap online (I'm not sure if it's available for sampling anywhere, but it is excellent...
If you have to append the "by Gucci" to "Gucci Pour Homme", then you should also append it to "Gucci by Gucci Pour Homme", which makes "Gucci by Gucci Pour Homme by Gucci". That's grotesque. :P
Gucci PH I, Gucci PH II, Ungaro III, Hypnotic Poison, Midnight Poison and Pal Zileri Sartoriale to name a few (The two poisons are marketed towards women)
Or perhaps I am the pebble, and the continual flux of the stream envelops me?
Busting out the citruses, vetivers, aquatics (because I still have some, shame on me?) and a bunch of l'artisan, trumpers, and goutal samples. Looking forward to it.
Edit: actually spring will...
Almost anything by Demeter Fragrance Library. Only one I have is Dirt, but it's pretty loyal to its name, if you get my drift.
I've also read similar things about CB I hate perfume.
How about something like ending poverty?
Or increasing everyone's standard of living at no cost to anybody?
(Yeah, off-topic. Sue me)
I know where you're coming from though,...
