You can ask the lovely lady behind the contact e-mail from Jean Patou's web site. She was good enough to answer my questions about my bottle of L'Heure Attendue while on her free time, altough she...
What year is this version of Samsara? 2000?
Jean Paul Gaultier - Fragile (EdP)
This stuff is so, so good, but I think it would be better on a female lol
Doesn't smell like celery to you?
To me it does :laugh:
I finally found a thread here on Basenotes and it seems that the bottle is from 1999 or 2009.
The 3 stands for the month it was made and the 9 for the year. The last digit is an "O" not a "0" . ...
I have found on a local site a bottle of Passage d'Enfer for a good price, but it does not have a cap and I do not know if it is the vintage or a more recent version. The bottom code is...
What is your opinion about Must and Must II from Cartier?
Which one would you prefer and how would you rate them? Do you prefer vintage Must over modern-day version or viceversa?
Pascal Morabito - Or Black
On the card of a sample of CF I have, there is written 72% VOL and on the sample itself 25% PV . My sample is a 2mls one, from 2010.
The 72% VOL is the alcohol + water and whatever else and the...
Send an e-mail to Caron and ask them. They will probably provide more info. Congrats!
I would gladly send you some samples of Nombre Noir, but the thing is that the rumors are true... :( the juice is very fragile so it will easily turn bad. Now, it smells a little bit spicy and rosey,...
Hugo Boss -Hugo (1995)
Yes, it is Nombre Noir.
The next house?
I have for sale a bottle of Shiseido's Basala in perfect condition.
50 ml bottle, used a few mls
Please see some pictures here: http://postimg.org/gallery/zwp196ea/
I can post it...
I went with Héritage (EdT)
Guerlain sounds good!
I will probably go with Heritage or Mitsouko (Parfum de Toilette).
What is the next house for this Friday?
Carven - Ma Griffe (Parfum de Toilette)
I have a bottle of Narciso Rodriguez For Him and I was wondering if it is vintage or not (i.e. first release).
I went to checkcosmetic to verify the code and it appears that my...
Eau Sauvage for me today!
Tomorrow I will go with Eau Sauvage and, perhaps, Saturday I will choose Poison. Wearing vintage Dior three days in a row :D
Dior sounds fine!
I wore yesterday night Insense. Dazzling and surreal. A masterpiece!
What is the house for the next Friday?
Carven - Ma Griffe
Carnal Flower at day, Insense at night.
I think what saminlondon means is that we should open a new thread each day, a thread dedicated exclusively to us posting what vintage fragrance are we wearing that day.
That would not be such a...
I just bought online a 30 ml bottle of Carven - Ma Griffe for peanuts. In box and in parfum de toilette concentration. Probably from the 80s. Anyone familiar with this one?
Thanks for opening this thread!
I joined this very first Synchronized Friday Vintage Edition by choosing to wear Burberrys (1981). As it smells mainly of leather and is very dry and hard for the...
A new thread dedicated to Synchronized Vintage Friday - or any day of the week - is a good idea.
If all the people who post here decide to join in SVF, then the vintage SOTD thread will be empty...
We should do more of Synchronized Vintage Friday. How about Synchronized Vintage Givenchy Friday?
I have Insense and Xeryus and I am sure most of us have at least one of the following: Insense,...
SotN: Burberrys (1981)
^ Good song!
Friday, like tomorrow Friday or next Friday?
I'm in! The only vintage from Burberry I have is Burberrys and I will wear that.
I found this lady's blog while searching for something: http://collectionsautourduparfum.jimdo.com/
My mind was blown away. Her house is probably a museum for vintage fragrances.
Nope, never. I used to have a few bottles of Basala/Basara but I gave them to my father or either sold a couple of them. I much desire to test some fragrances, things like Escada Pour Homme or Yohji...
Hugo Boss - Hugo
Eurocos version. Is that vintage or what?
Vetyver - you get what the name implies and since vetiver is a classy note used mainly in men's perfumes...
Lumiere is the best from these three. Sillage and longevity are not so good like in APOM, but I do not like APOM since it is a big white floral that easily gives me a headache.
Pluriel is the...
And one from an era when Kurkdjian created things worth sniffing...
I love this thread! Great pictures everyone!
I know some people think that they are alike, but unfortunately, I have not been able to put my nose on this one.
I still have around 6-7 mls of GPH I in my bottle, so that should last me a...
Gucci Pour Homme I
Soon, my bottle will be empty :sad:
The wonderful Gianfranco Ferre for Man thanks to Colin Maillard! :beer:
Any G-Shock users here? What is your opinion about them?
I wanted to buy a Multiband 6, but all this radio-controlled thing got me thinking about the signal not being received here where and I...
That bottle looks ridiculous! Pass!
Samsara in the morning, Good Life for the evening
Again. 4 wears in 8 days. This stuff is killing me softly. If it still available in shops I will certainly give it a try to see how they butchered it.
Guerlain - Samsara (edp)
2004 YSL - Cinéma
Mitsouko Parfum de Toilette
2000 Rochas Man or this isnt considered vintage? :rolleyesold:
^ Never knew that they make fragrances beside cigars.
How it is?
Guerlain - Heritage (EdT)
For me, a vintage fragrance is vintage if it meets at least one of the following criteria:
1. Not in production anymore & hard to get
2. First formulation
Today I am wearing Good Life...
Davidoff - Good Life
Probably pure perfume concentration of III . The juice inside my bottle has the exact same colour.
Christian Dior - Poison (edc)
Really useful information! Thank you, Slayerized!
I like very much and wear Samsara, Mitsouko, Shalimar, Carnal Flower, Dans tes Bras, Dune, PHI, Caleche, Plum Japonais and many others. No compliments, no weird looks, no questions asked, nothing so...
When did Coty took over Lancaster? My bottle is from 2008 and has "Homme" under "Joop", therefore is not that old... This one was never a projection beast on my skin. I wonder how is the vintage.
Givenchy - Insensé
Davidoff Good Life
Savile Row - 9 wears
M - 2 wears
Samsara - 2 wears
Good Life - 2 wears
Plum Japonais - 2 wears
It does not look like a typical Chanel vintage bottle. Can it be that somebody is trying to fake a Chanel by putting an old label on a bottle and then trying to sell it as a vintage Chanel?
I have read that Liquid Karl by Karl Lagerfeld would smell of bread. I have not tested it yet, so I can not confirm, but perhaps others who are familiar with this fragrance will share their...
Cher - Uninhibited
Guerlain - Samsara (1990 bottle)
Thanks, Roky! The black one is Nombre Noir.
My little samurai army:
From what I know, this bottle was never produced in the 50 ml size.
An original item would have the glass a bit wider in the place where it meets the brown plastic, but yours looks like the glass...
Goodlife works well on hot weather. That would be my choice between the two.
I would also grab some Samsara for the real Mysore sandalwood.
I just got my bottles and I am impressed. A soft floral that could easily become my signature. Thanks Sol invictus for the heads-up!
Davidoff (1984) - lime and castoreum
I am curious if they ship outside the UK as I have just bought a bottle for me and a friend and I know the rules are very strict regarding perfumes...
Selling a very rare fragrance: Jean Patou - L'Heure Attendue . Probably 100 ml and probably from the period of the release (1946). Hard to say for sure as I have not come across a single...
Have you tried M/Mink from Byredo? Or even Pulp, although many people find this one to be on the "normal" side?
I also recommend you to test out the house of Imaginary Authors. Every one of them...
I never get compliments from strangers, but my mother always tells me how great I smell, so I got that going for me which is nice :lolk:
I had a bottle of this and got rid of it. Very nasty stuff. I can hardly imagine someone liking it or even wearing it in public. It smells mostly of lilac and some sort of glue. Chemical warfare!
On the bottom of my MR bottle from 2010 was written the date it was made. I have no idea if the newer ones with the shiny cap follow the same pattern.
I used to like this one when I was new in the game. I have tried it recently and I have found it to be very synthetic and chemical. No natural thing about it. Not from this world.
Thanks! Do you spray on clothes or only on skin? It would not be quite a big problem the longevity on skin as long as I can spray some on my clothes and get some whiffs through out the day.
I have found a bottle of Vetiver Oriental by Serge Lutens that I am thinking about buying. My only concern would be the longevity and the projection. How does Vetiver Oriental performs on...
This one is nowhere to be found. At least this kind of bottle which was the first release. And the prices are crazy.
It is a copy of Azzaro Pour Homme. It was 10 euro. Not expensive. But neither Azzaro Pour Homme is expensive.
Top notes: Lavander, Basil, Rosewood
Middle notes: Tuberose, Tobacco, Labdanum, Vetiver
Base notes: Sandalwood, Patchouli, Incense, Leather
