I don't find it similar to Pluriel. I find it closer to Nuit D'Issey. It's a very poor release for me and I'm a huge Dior fan. Hugely dissapointed
Not entirely sure but I think that might be correct
Not fake and Amber Absolute is coming back, although hugely reformulated
Notes of bergamot, neroli, orange blossom, vanilla and tonka.
Can't understand the apathy over celebrity scents or auto brand scents.
Ferrari Essence Line

That's just 3 examples I can think of where...

Givenchy Play Intense - 49/50ml - No Box - £20
Paco Rabanne 1 Million Cologne (New 2015 release) - 74/75ml - Boxed - £30
Armani Code Sport Athlete -...
Aventus and CK One have both suffered this fate. Wore them on heavy nights out in the past and now can't stand either. The CK One night was 12 years ago and I still can't stand it!
Try Imaginary Authors Mosaic. Has a prominent limestone accord.
Prices include UK postage:
Montale Aoud & Pine - 99/100ml - Fully Boxed - £45

Raghba Wood Intense...
April 2nd in the UK
How did you know about the flash event? Just luck?
OM is magnificent.
That's a touch harsh on Euphoria Gold. It's not that bad. I think it's fairly similar to Arpege Homme.
How does it compare to Euphoria Gold?
If you'd posted this 2 months ago then I would have been able to sort you out. I recently sold my bottle (in the UK) and let it go for fairly cheap. It's really not that good. Smells like vanilla ice...
It's an excellent substitute. Next best thing to the real mccoy. Not as lush or rich as GIT and that signature Creed base is missing but still an excellent scent. It's a no Brainerd for the price.
Ok that makes more sense. Brown bottles has no connection with GIT as you said. The black bottle Raghba for Men on the other hand is very close to GIT. It's very similar but is obviously missing that...
No comparison? I find that astonishing. Are you talking about Raghba or Raghba for Men in the Black bottle?
Please delete this psot
£54 for 100ml. Bargain.
Agreed. It's a great scent but I also find it easily the most feminine from the line. My wife agrees.
Cedrat Enivrant and Vetiver Fatal are my favourites
Any more opinions on this?
Also got my 3 samples yesterday. Only tried Intoxicated so far. Reminds me of Muglers Angel (not Amen), only more green. I actually found it pretty horrible. Had to scrub it.
AB Spirit Silver is probably the 'most sold' scent I've seen on the UK Facebook groups. Seems like almost everyone gave up on it afrer a couple of wearings.
I actually heard the same thing regarding MiP earlier this week. Someone on the UK facebook group actually called Van Cleef and Arpels and they confirmed the news. Both EDT and EDP.

Killian - Straight To Heaven
Frapin - 1270
Mugler - Pure Havane
HdP - 1725
Dior - Dior Homme Parfum
I actually find the 40ml bottles great. They are perfectly sized for someone with a large collection. I personally shy away from 100ml bottles if I can due to the fact that I'll probably never use it...
My Puro Intense looks like this:
Apparently the EDT was reforumulated this year and re-released in order to comply with IFRA restrictions. Maybe this is the new version?
Any other fans of this? Have worn it a couple of times this week alone. Fantastic scent. How does the original Puro compare and has anyone tried the Extreme version?
Outstanding release from Dior. It's absolutely beautiful.
This one is similar to 24 Gold.
Never tried the roll-on but I found the spray to be pretty terrible.
Raghba For Men is excellent
Used to like this one. It just comes across like a chemical mess to my nose now though. Maybe I've been spoiled.
Dior Homme Parfum
Agreed on both. Herod also might be worth a look. Has the cinnamon and vanilla but the tobacco gives it a slightly more masculine vibe.
Strange. I get hardly any cinnamon from it. I find it almost identical to Sculpture. Just seen the post below......glad the Fragrantica users agree with me on the 24 comparisons. 24 people (funnily...
Agreed on all points.
Mark Birley Charles Street - 125ml - 99% full with box - £45
Vintage Le Male (Collectors edition 2006 with kilt) - 125ml bottle with over 100ml remaining - £32
Ferrari Silver Essence - 100ml -...
It's been bugging me what this smells like for weeks and I just realised last night:
My bottle arrives tomorrow. :D
I ordered this the moment I saw it!
Dior Homme Parfum
Yep. Splendid Wood. Seller was southernben1
Was just about to say the same.
They are all legit. I bought one for less than £40 and it was an unused tester (with cap) and a white tester box. The real deal.
Could be a fake. Lots of them around
Parfumo are reporting them to be the same scent:
Are the note breakdowns the same as well?
I got the EDP very cheap in the UK. Was £20 for 50ml. Very nice. Reminds me of a cross between GPH2 and Spicebomb
Daarej is decent. Reminds me of Valentino V
Yep! That's exactly what I was getting at. Glad it's not just me!
Only if they paid for expedited shipping. :)
I'm too cheap for that.
Ah OK, thanks. It's just that Nio has been out of stock for months.
Bella Beslissima - White Leather
Anyone ever seen or heard of this before? If so, is there anything remotely different other than the packaging?
Any fans of this? Seems fairly under the radar. It's a spectacularly good scent in my opinion. Definitely on my to buy list.
I get a Marmalade vibe with this one. Not sure why but the Orange comes across that way to me. Not sure I like it.
Where did you get Nio from if you don't mind me asking?
I much prefer the Parfum. The EDT gives me a headache but the Parfum is much smoother to my nose.
Another option is the superb Raghba for Men by Lattafa Perfumes. Very, very similar to GIT.
Very different. New Haarlem is very thick and syrup like. Smells more like butterscotch or pancake syrup than coffee. Pure Coffee is more what you'd expect from a coffee scent. It's not a freshly...
8 bottles today:
Mauboussin - Homme
Mugler - Pure Coffee
Laura Biagiotti - Roma
Lalique - Encre Noire Sport
Nikos - Sculpture Homme
Jill Sander - Man
Lolita Lempicka - L'eau Au Masculin...
Just ordered. Only had around 20ml of my bottle left so this is good timing.
YSL Rive Gauche and Penhaligons Sartorial are worth a look
Nice sweeping generalisation there. Just because some of us like it, it doesn't mean we are going with the flow. It means we actually might....you know.....like it.
Shay and Blue are an excellent house. Try Blood Oranges if you can. Surprised so many people haven't heard of them.
I'll be trying this one
As in House of Fraser?
24 Gold Oud Edition
Ferrari Silver Essence
Nejma Puro Intense
Lomani Intense Black
Killian Straight To Heaven
Mugler Pure Havane
Haha, saw that last night. Must be a mistake. That seller usually sells for realistic prices.
Safe blind buy? No. Worthwhile blind buy? Yes.
The opening can be a bit off putting but the dry down is sensational.
It's not a million miles apart. Pure Shot is fresher though with the minty, menthol vibe. Ice Men has a slight iced coffee feel along with nutmeg and the strong patch (it's not a strong coffee note)....
A cheap, very basic summer patchouli scent would be Muglers Ice Men.
It's not pathetic trash. Not by a long shot. I get a mix of Dolcelisir and Valentino Uomo. No bad thing in my opinion. Very much enjoying it.
The Truth? You can't handle the Truth!
I don't really understand the minimum bottle price either. I once split a 150ml bottle of Edition Blanche 3 ways on one of the Facebook groups. Worked out great for the 3 of us who only needed 50ml...
Had Silver Spiit and sold it. Beautybase sell it for £15
Like Gucci Rush.....only better
Probably a co-worker on a night out. She kept saying how she loved what I was wearing and even noted it down. Then as I was leaving she asked for a hug so she could smell me one more time before...
Is that Sawyer from Lost?
Davidoff Silver Shadow Altitude
Nothing wrong with it, just doesn't do enough to keep me interested.
