As stated above, Oud Save the King is great.
While not ground breaking, it is a really well composed sweet oud scent.
It smells very high quality and classy.
The Triple Extrait was pretty good...
i think it beats the point of the fragrance
After a full day wear I find it very similar to the recent tom ford noir extreme.
Opening is nice, but the dry down is average plus.
So far the leather one is my favorite out of that...
Barney's did not have a bottle yet from what I saw but they had samples
I see. Thank you for clearing it up
Got a sample of it today from Barneys.
i got to say...it's a very nice smelling amber.
it doesn't have much "amber" feel to it like some of the popular ambers.
the notes are very well blended....

YSL - la...
Yes the outer shell is a thin metal sheet.
Feels very cheap.
^ exactly my thoughts.
That is why I was disappointment from such a tamed release.
sprayed it at 8am. I can still smell it pretty good on me.
For a mainstream release it is very high quality,...
I think the regular noir was too niche for the mainstream.
This was the toned down fix.
I see where you get the spice bomb.
It's defenitly a crowed pleaser. Suitable for most occasions. Maybe...
Its not a bad scent. I would much rather wear it above the other ones.
I do like how it smells, but as a big tom ford fan i am a little disappointed.
Its too mainstream for a TF release. It comes...
I shouldve waited and not blind bought it.
It smells a lot better IMO than the said two, but what i was trying to say is that it smells mainstream and the two scents share some similarities.
Just got my bottle.
First thing that i dont like is the gold cap.
If it was metal it would be awesome, but the plastic cap feels very cheap.
Now for the smell:
So on the initial spray i...
I just it their regular oud last night.
I'm curious to see how this one smells
Tom Ford Noir Extreme.
Can't wait for it to arrive
L'artisan - Timbuktu
Nasomatto - Black afgano
i found velvet and cashmere to be very similar.
From your perspective, how would you describe the differences?
I only smelled them on paper. Minor differences to my nose
I like their regular oud a lot.
Its next on my list together with montale black aoud.
The thing is that to me, the regular Oud isnt oud focused but rather a composition.
The velvet oud...
Picked up a bottle of Velvet mood few days ago.
Very unique deep resinous - industrial like scent.
Gasoline laced scent. Smokey and very deep.
Complex and beautiful but very hard to pull off.
TF azure lime
Updated and sent pm
MFK - oud velvet mood
Dior - Leather Oud
Amouage - memoir man
In retrospective I should've bought more bottles.
It's available in duty free shops. Not sure if it's exclusive to a specific airport chain
I just picked up Dior homme Parfum at the delta terminal in JFK.
What a great scent.
I was never a fan of any of the other Dior Homme.
The original and the intense version were too lipsticky...
I find Oud Wood incredible.
Is it hyped? yes, unfortunately it is. In my opinion it takes away a little from the scent, but when not overdone, its a great scent.
Apom by MFk, to me smells similar
Citrus and anise hmm
I had Must de Cartier and i was not a fan of the anise there.
Happen to know if there are any similarities?
Got an offer to buy a bottle at a really good price.
Can't seem to find too much information or reviews about this one.
Has anyone tried it, and if so what are your thoughts?
I blind bought Palermo and received it today.
Its not mind blowing but its a very good summer scent.
I got to smell a couple from their line at Barneys, and they all smelled pretty linear to me....
I just bought the above online at a very good price.
I was reading that its similar to MFK's Oud scent, which i really like (in my buy list)
For those who have experience with the scent,...
No they are just not as "mainstream" aka crowd-pleasers as most scents.
Its not necessarily a bad thing. I mean, a Ferrari would be less appealing if it was an everyday car.
They arent bold scents,...
I agree that most of them are inflexible. Cologne and sycomore are probably the more flexible ones.
I don't consider them as challenging, but I don't see them as wearable as some stuff.
Check out no22
It's floral but I find it very wearable
Maison Francis Kurkdjian - Lumiere Noire Pour Homme
I think a lot of people are giving bond a hard time.
Yes it's gimmicky and over priced, but they make some really good scents.
I never got the wet dog accord until recently. I think Wall Street...
Its not about the price. Im just wondering if its worth it as in if its noticeably different than the EDT
So few days ago i got rid of my bottle of MiP EDT.
I liked the scent, but nothing more than that.
It didnt get too many wears. Something about the EDT just didnt smell rights to me.
I think chanel platinum egoiste or tom ford grey vetiver are very good choices.
They are both very high quality and can be worn year around. They fit every occasion and when I wear them I always get...
It's the application of it.
I get uncomfortable wearing two full sprays of it.
It's more tamed once dried down. I do like one full spray and it's good.
I have layered a little of TF Extreme...
I have a 3.4oz bottle.
I like it. Its nothing outstanding but a good go to smell.
Smelling from the bottle/ cap i do get the wet dog reference, but once you wear it and it dries down it shares some...
I want to take a small step back here and re-state something.
When i said smelling good, i meant fit in the common concept of smelling good.
A collection can consist of mainly mainstream...
I have tam dao also. Great smell
It's not that niche don't smell good. It's just that a lot of them go against the common perception of a good smell.
Same as in sushi where the general society...
its been a while since i last posted here.
My taste in fragrances just like in food, has recently shifted towards more exotic and different things that stand out.
One of my...
I have BO and it doesnt get many wears.
The scent is beautiful but like some people have stated its very "out there"
It is not an easy one to wear. It will definitely make you stand out, but at...
How do i know which one i have without having the box anymore?
I was at BG yesterday and smelled their aventus.
Smells so different than mine. I bought mine nearly two years ago. Smells much...

Wore it two or three times, just doesn't wear well on me.
Open to any swap of equal or higher value (willing to add...
I wasnt able to find the regular one, but this one is pretty woodsy. Kind of like one of the JV artisan. Maybe the black one but with less of a fabreeze smell to it.
I can see the 8hr of power and...
Today while in israel on vacation i found a discounted section of different men cosmetics and fragrances. I did not have have enough with me to buy more then one item so i am planning...
Vera Wang Men
Givenchy Intense Ultramarine (great aquatic scent btw)
I saw this at the aveda store few days ago.
Its pretty good. Its a spicy lemon/woodsy leather.
Im thinking of picking up a bottle.
what do yall think?
its really not a bad scent. i dont see why you dislike it.
it does have a very strong sense of class to it, yet it is a great all around scent.
it isnt phenomenal but its not bad either.
Yes I also thought it would be for romantic use but its a very nice all-around scent.
itasts pretty good on me, it jusy doesnt really project.
The anis is a little overwhelming at first. I used 4...
So i decided to buy few new winter frags.
I ended up going for
Must de Cartier
Today MDC arrived and its a lot different from what i expected.
From the description...
i see what your saying, but its not really true imo.
rochas is "younger" because it is sweeter, and as coffee is more common/available it does appeal to a wider range of people.
Pure Malt is more...
they are both honestly great.
i get equal amount of female comments from each one, but never from the same girl...
i honestly didnt find a girl who liked both.
I am starting to like rochas more...
i couldnt find L'instant so i dropped it.
i added two different ones:
I have a good amount of gourmands which help me back from getting rochas, but after having a...
Burberry london gets me a large amount of female compliments.
i was at a frat party yesterday and about 10 girls told me how great i smell
So i am about to purchase two new winter scents.
i narrowed down my list to the following:
Guerlain L'Instant EDP
MINOTAURE by Paloma Picasso
Must de Cartier
Boucheron EDP (for some reason...
I think i am going to get L'Instant. I saw the edp on amazon but i cant find it anymore =\
I decided i want a new winter fragrance and after previously trying both and liking them as well i decided it is time to buy one.
The only thing i didnt get a chance to try is the EDP...
I mean to say there that in the world of mainstream frag's and its shoppers the opinion people get from girls is what matters
Tom Ford Grey Vetiver allways reminded me of fresh cut grass...being set on fire lol
nothing bad about it tho
I was at lord and taylor today with a buddy his gf and two of her female friends shopping for a present for a mutual friend.
As we passed the men fragrance counter we were offered to smell the new...
Gandarme G EDP
I really like it and so do the girls. Its unique in a sense that no one else will have it.
I bought a 3.4oz in israel for 25usd. Great buy if you can find it for less then 40
While walking in bloomingdales i noticed this girl i used to know working at the jo malone counter.
I never got a chance to check any of Jo Malones fragrances so this was a good opportunity to get...
Im going to blind buy it.
Im buying it together with M7 Fresh. Im trying to buy two opposite ends in some sort of way
Ok thanks i think i will go for it.
it seems like a good deal for the price.
Im not really a big fan of prada amber even though i own it, i like mugler cologne much better.
How would you describe it as a clean scent?
soapy like prada amber
or more woodsy like the john varvatos artisan?
yeah its the top one just a different bottle.
Does it last for long and projects well?
I saw it on amazon for cheap: 3.4oz for ~30usd.
I was wondering what people here think of Gendarme G.
I found it online on Amazon for really cheap and i am very tempted to buy.
what is it like, or what is it similar to?
Why is 4711 so cheap? lol i might just squeeze it in that list.
Any support for Moschino Uomo and Gendarme G?
Im pretty set on M7 Fresh as of right now being a certain buy
does this seem legit to you guys?
Its the Gendarme G EDP 3.4oz for 28$...
I am afraid it may not be...
Monsieur Balmain seems interesting. Yatagan and Silences dont seem like what i am looking for at the moment.
Any one here got an opinion about Gendarme G? for 28$ it sounds pretty tempting
yeah i tired L'Anarchiste together with Pour un Homme and i really liked them.
I am going to buy them at this high-end store next to my house. last time i bought some skincare stuff i got 5...
Long story short i basically have ~80$ credit from amazon.com
I am looking for a couple new summer frags especially after losing my issey miyake in israel.
Basically i dont want to spend too much...
Once im back to te states im going to give this Exilir a proper wear.
I tried wearing it last night, but it didnt work too well for me in this intense heat.
I do really like it. i have been...
for some reason, i like using the more "elegant" scents while wearing a nice pair of shorts, moc's and a wife beater
On me i find some similarities to the original.
Does it work for you in hot weather?
Anyone here familiar with this?
I bought it few days ago here in israel for a pretty good price...~25usd for a 3.4oz
At first it smells nothing like the original. From the bottle i thought it...
the guerlain is not meant to be my summer scent pick.
as i was saying the store got this sale where i buy one fragrance and i get one for free so i can mix and match.
To be honest? i cant make up...
right now im in Israel on vacation and yesterday i was surprised by the large selection of fragrances available.
The prices arent too bad at all...while its a little more then in the US...
Im really not a fan of Marc Jacobs for Men.
The fig is way to strong and it smells a little feminine imo and my girls opinion.
Salvatore Ferragamo pour Homme is a classy little powdery fig...
A*Men Pure Malt - Aged whisky
Guerlain Homme - Mojito
Salvador Dali Laguna - a little like pinacolada
I find Canali Men to be very versatile. Its a very clean leather smell which makes it a very elegant/romantic scent.
Theres some subtle fruity notes which makes it more wearable in the summer. Its...
Lanvin Arpege PH
its ok i dont know what to think about it yet because the weather is too warm.
I find it to be somewhat similar to JPG Le Male blended with Dior Homme and a little Body Kouros
Dirty English is somewhat similar to Gucci PH1, but not as good.
I find M7 to smell like a sauna (the scent of the wood without the sweaty people) with a little sweetness to it.
im usually not a fan of citrus...
is it a subtle citrus or "in your face" kind?
I found this on amazon for 18$ for a 3.4oz bottle so i thought why not.
I never smelled it, but i did like laguna. I am wondering if anyone got a chance to smell it and can tell me what it is...
+1 for Tom Ford Grey Vetiver.
Its a great summer scent imo.
Go to sephora and get a sample first; i hated it first few times i applied it but it grew up on me.
Its a "Dirty Clean" scent. it...
I didnt get a chance to check ice*men.
in theory yeah coffee is a heavy note, but a good quality ice coffee does have a cooling aroma.
Is there any summer coffee scents?
Cartier Roadster Sport. Not really spicy but its a nice clean elegant scent.
If you do want spicy try and get a bottle of YSL M7 Fresh...its similar to the original M7 but a little lighter which...
I was wondering what do you think is the best aquatic available.
There are so many option especially now when every flanker is either sport or aquatic.
I just want to make few exceptions here...
I cant stand scented deodorants or bodywashes...they mess with my natural scent.
A fragrance blends with my natural scent.
check out Anthony Logistics Deodorant.
Its a great smelling...
