Acier Aluminium by Creed
I'm in heaven!
Orange Star by Andy Tauer (from a sample).
Freely available here in the UK, bought a bottle 2 weeks ago.
1. Amouage Epic Man
2. Creed Royal Mayfair
3. Santa Maria Novella Patchouli
I have both but I reach for RO far more often than BdP. A far easier wear and much more versatile I feel.
Agreed. This is such a serious, intellectual thread and gdawg needs his bottom severely smacked!:D
Amouage Epic Man
Back to Black
Noir de Noir
Dior Homme Parfum
Santa Maria Novella Patchouli
As long as I don't offend anyone with what i'm wearing that's all the compliment I need!
Cold and windy here today so needed something to take me somewhere else!
I love Himalaya and am coming to the end of my 4oz bottle. I find it very potent and 2 sprays lasts me all day. I most definitely will re-purchase.
Voted Mugler Cologne but Geir Ness is always my choice for clean & fresh.

I have two female assistants in my office and they are both well aware of my fragrance obsession. After a couple of years of "you stink" or "what have you got on today Grandad" I asked them to pick 3...
Equipage all the way for me. I like BDP but I find it a little on the powdery side.
I don't take it personally. Having said that the only time I've had negative feedback is if I've put too much on, usually from my 23 year old secretary who doesn't mince her words! Wish I had...
I don't think I've come across a Creed that I've actively disliked. There are not many houses I can say that about, in fact none spring to mind.

My wife is fond of telling me "you smell like a million dollars but look like a bag of shit". I know she's not exactly being complimentary but I'm kind of ok with that....
Impossible question for me. My most used are...
Vintage Bel Ami
I also adore Jean Patou Pour Homme and Jean Patou Prive but to pick one above all others? Well I simply...
You say you want a strong one? Try Santa Maria Novella Patchouli.

Rose 31. Filthy dark rose. C&S 88 is also a good call.
Tom Ford getting a lot of love today!
I agree, I simply don't believe that random people stop you in public and ask you what you are wearing, certainly not multiple times on the same day. I've had the odd comment from a check out person...
In no particular order.
Frederic Malle Vetiver Extraordinaire
Chanel Exclusifs Sycomore
Zegna Haitian Vetiver
I would be glad to send you a sample but being in the UK we now have these ridiculous restrictions on sending fragrance by air and I fear it would be destroyed by Royal Mail (it has happened to me...
Chanel Sycomore. Malle's Bois d'Orage/French Lover also works well for me in the summer for a non aquatic.
Divine L'homme Sage
This for a winning combination IMO.
Killian-A Taste of Heaven
Santa Maria Novella-PATCHOULI
There are so many things that smell bad in this world, including people. I don't want to be one of them. I'll admit I don't need as many bottles as I do. I guess I collect because I'm always...
I am over the 200 mark now so am going to have a serious word with myself.
I am convinced you're not using that Clive Christian No 1 enough......so I'm 'avin it!!
I like to wear Patchouli Leaves to bed as it's still radiating when I get up in the morning.
I think it's a refreshing change from Guerlain. It is a classic line and there is nothing wrong with them producing something with a little more mass market appeal, they are a business after all....
I've got a bottle of Geir Ness arriving soon on a blind buy, I have great expectations, but then, I always have, hope I'm not disappointed..
I seem to remember a thread or two on this before but I can't find them. Anyway, it's only a bit of fun. For me it's easy, my wife absolutely adores Hermes Equipage. She likes many but if we are...
Allure Homme Sport eau Extreme
One thing that has always puzzled me (and I don't know if some ouds have this) is why some people enjoy a fecal note. Fecal=faeces=shit. Why on earth would anyone want to smell like shit? I first...
This, in a nutshell. For 99% of women I know anyhow.
I enjoy it but I find it a bit "loud", even with one spray. I've had several nice comments (from both sexes) but it's not one I reach for a lot these days. I tend to adapt my fragrances to the...
+1 on Kilian's A Taste of Heaven.
A Taste of Heaven By Killian.
A happy and prosperous New Year to everyone at Basenotes!
Jovoy Private Label.
Santos, but I have the Concentree. Easy choice really as I don't particularly like Anteus, the floral elements are too strong for me.
From a sample and I have just caved in and bought a bottle. Simply beautiful.
Pierre Cardin Pour Homme takes me right back to 1977.
Ermenegildo Zegna Javanese Patchouli and Bel Ami Vetiver. Yes, I had to tell her what to get but I am very happy indeed!
Costume National Scent Intense
Montale Black Aoud
DHI (I've tried, oh how I've tried!)
I'll have to add Le Male.
Not 100% sure but probably Patou pour Homme Prive.
Agreed. I only have a decant of this at the moment but it is the only one where I would consider a flacon.
53, straight, pink...ish and politically slightly to the right of Genghis Khan.
I have a bonbon sample. PM me your address and i'll gladly post it to you (I'm in the US right now).
Extremely strong, a little too much for me. Currently really enjoying Scent of Peace but especially NY Sandalwood.
