Banana Republic: Slate
Ambrť Baldessarini +1
Lovely bar room vibe, and the face of the range is Charles Schumann, a highly regarded Munich barkeeper.
+1 Czech & Speake Oxford & Cambridge
Happy New Year, 2012! May this be a year of superb smelling for all us Basenoters!
I just scooped a fingertip of ashes from our fire. I couldn't smell anything - perhaps the 'ash note' is firewood type dependant or my late-night wine weakened olfactory skills are suspect - but I...
My mistake. I meant the Nivea Revitalizing Shave Gel with Q10 (although I use the Nivea Replenishing Balm)
Not sure about 1740. To me the opening smells like a rich BBQ sauce - albeit a good one. I quite like the wet leather accord, once the dark fruitiness has subsided, but I think this one will be a...
Angel Schlesser Homme smells like rice.
Nivea Replenishing for Men
Seeing your avatar, perhaps everyone in town thought you were 'the most interesting man in the world' - are you sure it wasn't Dos Equis you were distilling?
But seriously, your story is an...
I recently ordered, and promptly recieved a 6 sample pack from HdP. I tried Ambre 114 yesterday and was very impressed. Today is 1725 day and, although I'm not an anise fan, I liked it a lot. The...
Was browsing around, and read on the Bronnley website that the company entered administration on the 29th November 2011. They are still trading at the moment, but the administrators are 'actively...
Just ordered six 2ml samples from HdP online, including Ambre 114 (only 10 euro and free delivery). Really looking forward to trying this, especially given the many positive comments.
Found R'Oud Elements by Kerosene on Etsy.com for $75 and the following description
'An edp with notes of Oud, Sandalwood, Amber, Vanilla, Lavender, Iris and Orange Bitters.

Apocalypse Now (1979) edit:
Kilgore: Smell that? You smell that?
Kilgore: Bottled Boss, son. They say nothing in the world smells like that.
Kilgore: I love the smell...
+1 C&S No 88
+1 Ungaro III
also Loud for Him by Tommy Hilfiger
+1 Cool Water Game
and also VV Man by Robert Verino (nice retro bottle)
Bald boy: Do not try and smell the fragrance. That's impossible. Instead... only try to realize the truth.
Neo: What truth?
Bald boy: There is no fragrance.
Neo: There is no fragrance?
Also, I like Lynx Boost/Ignite - red gel which has guava and 'volcanic stone extracts' (smells light menthol aniseed to me).
C&S No88 +1
Ungaro III (I've only tried the latest reformulation but I really like it)
I also like C&S Dark Rose but that might be too feminine for you
At the moment I'm enjoying the Nesti Dante Chic Animalier range. These look and feel luxurious, and the fragrance is fabulous. My favourite is Bronze Leopard.
When I'm in a rustic/minimalist phase...
I now it's an old thread, but I couldn't resist.
1964: Brut by Faberge
... and I'm wearing it now.
Every fragrance you expected to receive at Christmas ... but didn't (le voleur de NoŽl). Or maybe something fecal from all the reindeer pooh - C&S Cuba perhaps; it's even got a peppermint stick...
Colors Uomo by Benetton +1 (and in UK, 100ml under £10 online)
Try it again, and leave it on for a few hours.
My daughter bought me Georgio for my birthday a couple of weeks ago. I always wore Azzaro PH in my early 80s college years and was keen to smell this...
