ooh i wonder if cw has a great flanker bners are fondof?
i wore coolwater in the 90s bought it again a few years back so no hate here but i do like copycats for that reason. i don't want coolwater but just something similar. i love git and aspen too..
jasmine et cigarette..
i enjoy all whiffs of fragrance i get actually even the supposedly crappy frags people wear to the gym. so to me wearing a frag is better than no frag.
ysl la nuit
what is the blue brut in a square box? i have only tried the aftershave splash when i was in a retro barbershop phase..
acqua di parma colonia
from the reviews it seems like a decent fougere..
so it is a green frag? put it on my test list...
amen has mint but iv never worn it out in the sun..
anyone tried ck1 shock?
perry ellis 360 red
paris hilton just me
niche version? lol y not i'd be curious to try that too..
i owned ck one summer 2005 pre basenotes. i'm not up to date with the rest but would like to revisit this series..
2012 seems promising with the green packaging. love green frags..
wonder if f for men is good but i couldn't smell anything the last time around.
perhaps we need more boardroom frags too coz this is where i seemed to have always spotted it being the number 1 choice.
were the purchased by a huge luxury conglomerate?
stuff like acqua di parma never used to reach my shores but i believe the tod's ceo bought the brand which might explain the availability now..
what is this frag called canoe? is it aromatic or more straight up fougere?
grey flannel. narciso rodriguez are they more violet leaf than fougere?
bahaha no it was kevin costner!
iv never tried it tho so no idea if it is good or bad but it used to be mentioned alot.
discontinued? raised to limited edition status? what?
yeah hehe! i thot that would mean they were light frags if they were in that type.
terre iv never seen in that so i was hoping to exclude it even tho i own it.
i think belami and equipage are...
i mean the ones that come in eau d'orange verte bottles..
i am looking for something very green/ fern-y...
i may have seen that minotaure before. i will look out for it next time. will check out emporio armani. thanks! i do own roadster.
hednic, it is rather expensive no? at least that is what i remember last time i read about it.
so jazz isn't an aromatic? just straight up fougere?
ahh yes iv smelled those great aromatic fougeres!
good call on the penhaligons. haven't tried it but i have tried trufitt and hill...
i owned that way back..
must be y i lyk it then..
my all time favorite fragrance is acqua di parma. finished my bottle a long time ago and haven't caught a huge sale since. this might just be a...
hey what is your reference fougere bigsly?
that is what i was trying to ask. perhaps the ysl jazz in the title was misleading.
the opening has a very cologney feel and i was abit suspicious if it was refilled juice coz it was from my brother haha (though i have never seen him tinkering with fume bottles and funnels.. ) the...
polo blue if you are taking suggestions.
iv owned versace man eau fraiche and kenzo power recently.
ferragamo tuscan soul is my current summer frag but it is not very good in longevity. really...
i know there are other types like the aromatic so perhaps list both.
i also know stuff like fougere royale are probably the real reference frags but i am looking for something i can own.
never got it tho i am cool with azzaro ph and it's flanker onyx..
boss bottled- adidas victory leagyue
van cleef and arpels pour homme
polo double black is a good one for the night out scent here in manila. we're known for mangoes too. and yeah strong coffee to i guess..
a hot halfie once told me she found burberry for men in the...
if it is anything like the bulgari then i will like it. bphs is my fave of the 3 bulgari colognes. wonder what are their similar notes? also one thing i love about bulgaris is they're soo unisex.
Wonder if it is just me but the azzaro seemed pretty fresh to me. I might even try wearing it to the gym. :cheesy: ..maybe after is a better idea haha!
I know a lot probably prefer rive gauche...
dior homme cologne
gucci ph II
bulgari ph soir
the most elegant gentleman i know wears this. he isn't insanely wealthy but he just does things with such style. this frag tho was what he was wearing when he met his wife. he hasn't changed t since.
i did sense that with so many of them hitting the bins but they're still sold over the counters here.
tried it today. yeah pretty late to the party. i'm a huge fan of the original azzaro but it smells like dad to me (even though mine never wore it). i still wore it coz it grew on me and it's really...
i am kind of looking for a gym frag. it's either this or something like polo blue.. or buy brit and wear nothing to the gym lol!
^the d&g sport must be new. iv read about the issey sport..
i'll allow aspen haha just kidding!
i remember a lot of hate towards nautica voyage many many months ago. i read about it in the guide as a floral aquatic by roucel like a male versin of missoni. i'm pretty stoked by the current hype...
i guess i'll go with mugler or creed ov (whichever i can find) then polo blue as 2nd choice..
much thanks guys!
:thumbup: i did like that as well. been trying to find infusion de vetiver on the cheap for the longest time.
haha it's a huge hit here in manila. :D
^could never find the first one but always hear goog stuff bout it. those 2 seem very nice. thanks for the recs..
oh btw would you mind listing your 2nd choice as well in case i can't find any of these. tho i've seen all of them around. counters are just spotty here..
will be using them for or after the gym.
i'm 27. live in manila, philippines.
tho i usually wear a frag after. still a nice feeling to wear something sporty.
been looking into a few BN classics..
i so tried to word that so not all the replies would be green irish tweed LOL!:tongue:
what are the light fragrances francis has done to compete with ellena's? just a question as i'm only familiar with the non niche heavies. straight to heaven? is that the lavender?
miller harris fleurs de sel
heeley sel marin
azzaro chrome legend
are i hear similar. i like fleurs de sel but i like some of the miller harris frags too..
i also really really like guerlain homme..
i myself will look into the lacostes from reading this thread. i remember liking something a SA sprayed me with but i was avoidant of them and only later went hmm.. not a bad frag and i could see why...
dior homme COLOGNE
bulgaris are really nice. i like pour homme soir and BLV II, which is a women's frag.
i like the bottle too. is it good at least for the gym?
^i love formal fragrances and gourmands as well ugh hehe tough choice!
(i swear this is the last thread i make on my upcoming purchase choices!)
i'm 27. location is manila.
i'm from manila, philippines lol! so pretty far off but the stuff we get here are from places like marshalls/ tjmaxx. this one had a cap too. it's usually testers.
envy is the only frag my pops...
LOL oops.. well as long as i can't detect it. azzaro chromes are probably synthetic as hell but i couldn't really detect a synthetic harshness in chrome sport..
my signature ever since getting into frags has been bulgari black. it is subtle tho or at least my application is. it certainly is no opium. maybe the scents these days are not made with giving the...
i really like some adidas frags victory league and pure game.. 100ml of this is really super cheap.
the bulgari house especially black.
kenzo power/ power cologne.
i still see old guccis...
thanks for the description! i'll test black xs soon.. sounds like a decent frag. i owned fraiche but it was too synthetic for me. i love allure homme as well.
thanks! it is still a detectable lavender tho right?
see if i wanted a gendarme like fragrance i'd go kenzo power/ kenzo power cologne for me.
so the lavender in 20 might sway me over to the...
i should mention that i'm also not from the US and the ubiquity of black xs or fierce is very much unkown to me..
7-6 bulgari black
i guess i won't be changing tho i would have thot encre noire was more versatile being a vetiver and all, while black is an oiental. no?
sorry for the vague question. i saw an a&f frag but didn't read the box and am wondering if fierce is the only thing that comes in a greyish box in the abercrombie lineup..
secondly, is it a good...
how does it compare to other lavenderss? it's listed as a masculine while most of the lavenders i have tried are unisex or feminine. is it really on the masculine side of the fragrance spectrum?
it was in a grey box. didn't see the bottle. more tall than wide. must have been from the current selection.
i'm wondering if it could be fierce. is that discontinued? if so how does it smell? i...
i forgot to test it when i was at the store but i will in the coming weeks. would like to know what you guys think of it.
i've owned both. still have a few left in my bulgari black bottle. i'm out of encre noire. black has been a signature fragrance for me for quite some time. this is my 3rd bottle. considering a switch...
fleurs de sel by miller harris
i got dated/ old man from aramis original once when i first tried it a couple of years back but just once. the current one didn't give me that vibe anymore. azarro, which i like, always seems like...
it does seem like a decent fragrance from the reviews.
anyone like this?
my signature scent!
any current stuff you are using that fir this criteria? hopefully easily obtainable too. thanks!
