Givenchy pour Homme (2002, red bottle)
It is true that Russia is packed with vintages, but shipping overseas is a drag
Opium, Body Kouros, Antidote
If I love original Mania (I own vintage first year of production bottle), then is it worth getting this flanker? What's your take on it gentlemen
Ferrari Uomo (2009 release). This is Bottega Veneta Extreme for a price three times less
I have this. Batch 2002, too. Anniversary release, you are correct
Old bottle of Ferrari Uomo, I like it a lot.
Body Kouros for me
This is excellent stuff
Vintage Sandalwood by Elizabeth Arden
Nice place to drop a funny name of a fake that I saw the other day - CREDO ADVENTIST
About 15 classic male fragrances from Dzintars house, all made in USSR (Latvia) from 1960s to 1990s
I found an awesome scent by Demeter at last - Wall Street - and bought it on spot, but again... it doesn't last, and this is too bad, because it smells fantastic
Demeter Wall Street.
The scent is so beautiful, but vanishes in an hour
Bought this cheap, out of plain curiosity - can't say I like it much
Actually, it's 212 White, not listed
What, NO IRIS?
The house of Chanel alone worth owning at least 8 different scents, so I'd say 300 bottles is about perfect
Had the same dilemma two weeks ago, after extensive and repeating sampling bought myself a bottle of
I would say, EXQUISITE
Chanel Pour Monsieur
Penhaligon's Juniper Sling
I've sent a letter to C&S customer support asking what year this batch code may be. But I bought this bottle without the box - it's full, but the box was lost, so no info on that
Yes, thank you very much for confirming my thoughts.
Bought full 100ml of Czech & Speake #88 on some webboard in my country from a guy who apparently had no clue - and for so...
This topic is VAST. I don't know where to start, frankly.
If you by any chance see the vintage Zarya cologne, just grab it. If you see such items, as women's Mystere or Kuznetsky Most, or The...
100ml of Czech & Speake #88 - Vintage
A solid new player has entered this field since the inception of this thread - Eau de Cedrat by L'Occitane. This fragrance will be huge by the end of the year
My recent purchase as well, very pleased with it.
I received mine couple of days ago, and enjoy it a lot, too. Its smoky notes remind me of CDG Man2 a little bit. Interesting frag, there's a whole movie going on in there, as it's so dynamic
I know a couple of provincial cities in Northeastern China that smell worse and less livable
Pure and clean straightforward rose soliflore that somehow smells masculine. Great longevity, awesome price.I enjoy it A LOT, as it's so airy, fresh, and easy to wear.
If you have Extreme, you won't need this. It's basically the same, just a tad weaker. And sweeter. I own both the original LR and Extreme, and this Sport is worse than both of them. Typical case of...
How do you like this Chopard, Colin? I see the bottle in one of our shops, but it is sealed. Many people praise it for being a great woody-spicy blend. Does it smell similar to any of well-known...
Dear John cologne body spray from Lush - I see this to become my #1 summer fragrance this year
Ferre Lui / Him - I don't need it, actually, because I have several scents of this kind (Zino, Armani Attitude, etc) - but...
Got it. Full wear tomorrow.
Proof that they do exist in our troubled world
My thoughts exactly. I like it so much that I think I'll get a bottle this week. Have been testing this since April, and each time like it more and more
I see, thank you!
What about the bottle that preceded the newest one? I'm talking about tallish blue bottle that still sells on many various web stores? Does it smell similar to original even slightly?
The sprayer looks oldish indeed, and this "90% Vol" thing is something out of past I think. Would be great if I got vintage
Jacomo De Jacomo came in the mail today - and I have a question: is this an older style bottle, or 50ml always come like that, and Zippo-like white top is a style for 100ml bottles only?
L'Occitane Eau De Baux
Scherrer (the very first Jeane-Louis Scherrer for women)
Knowing Estee Lauder
Angel Schlesser Pour Femme
Yes, thank you!
Article - where, if I may ask? Would like to read it too
Ordered Le Vetiver today. I have Vetiver by Carven in clear bottle with plexi cap, so it would be fun to compare. Have about 15 vetivers in my collection, one more won't hurt
Recently I tried Mania in the store, and it is not the same scent now that I have from 2002 or so. Old Mania is worthy of its name, the new one smells like an amateur sketch of the great oil...
White Musk is my favorite
Boiled down to a couple of Sisley frags - Eau 2 and Eau D'Ikar: date, business, party, hot or cold, doesn't matter. Yeah, most versatile
Simple, yet pleasant masculine rose with natural oils. Made in Bulgaria where people know their roses.
There was a time when I had several back-ups (M7, vintage DHI, etc), but I sold everything except KenzoAir Intense.
Saw the thread, wore it yesterday again - Reveal works for me. Great fragrance, unusual, gets compliments. Two rules, though - do not overapply (three spray MAX), and do not wear it in hot and humid...
I feel the opposite: that Montales are like mass-market compared to Manceras, the hi-end.
Interesting idea, I've got a confirmation from seller that my sample is French, so it would be fun to compare
Ok, this is valuable information from person who seem to know the topic very well - I trust your opinion, and get the bottle with most active price then! Thank you!
Thank you, that's why I asked - all I see in my immmediate field of view is bottles made in Italy.
The mail just came in with vintage Burberry Touch (2000, first year of production), Monsieur de Givenchy AS (weak, but...
Prada Luna Rossa, the original one, is phenomenal summer scent. My latest discovery. Check it out
Interesting. Will try to find it in my country.
Prada Luna Rossa (American Cup Special Edition) and Luna Rossa Extreme, plus two feminine cheapies that smell totaly...
Silver Intensitive Aoud
Luna Rossa Extreme is phenomenal, will definitely check out the Sport flanker
Dunhill Icon - pass
Eau Sauvage Cologne - awesome
I have a sample of it for several days now, but never tried it yet. Will report back on this thread in couple of days.
Prada Luna Rossa Extreme
See if you can go for 30 days without any music.
See if you can go for 30 days without buying a good album.
Mancera Cedrat Boise batch 12J29C - guess it's 2012, second year of production, may be wrong.
I'm from Vladivostok, Russia - that's the port city on the Sea of Japan.
It's almost midnight here, too late to examine the box and the bottle with magnifying glass, but I have a feeling it's an older batch, judging by the condition of cellophane and overall exterior. May...
Cerruti 1881 is great, really. From a cap it may seem like a million of other chyprougeres from the 80s or 90s, but on skin it transforms into something totally unique, I was going like WOW, what IS...
Cedrat Boise I was eyeing for quite some time, love it to bits - very versatile, easy to wear, people seem to love it (but no full wears yet, so no reports on compliments, though I'm not out to seek...
Angel Schlesser Pour Femme is amazing unisex fragrance. Many older chypres too (by Scherrer, Balmain, Estee Lauder, etc).
Funny, just yesterday I was reading everything I could find about this fragrance, thinking to buy it blind, but changed my mind at the last minute and ordered Oscar de la Renta Pour Lui instead
If you dig Coriolan, this.
Dangerous man for the industry. This school of thought soon will be hurting sales, LOL
In Russia, they are for sale on every store, but I never bothered to try them. Yet. Because they are dirt cheap. Maybe I should.
I'm awaiting this perfume to arrive after testing Rose of Bulgaria AFTERSHAVE which I found amazingly beautiful fragrance, very close to natural fresh-cut rose in smell, and nothing in common with...
I'd get Body Kouros, gets more compliments for me. La Nuit smells too common (Bentley Intense, Eau De Baux, etc).
Shanghai Night by Jeanne Arthes - cool old-school mossy chypre. So impressed, I wrote a separate post about it.
Yesterday I bought this less-known cheapie for equivalent of $8.00 being intrigued by the fact that this fragrance in a...
My wedding scent! Still have it.
On topic: Vintage Leonard Homme stood the test of time very well. Not dated at all. Light leather and orris, feels very modern.
And Balafre is timeless, of...
Balenciaga Pour Homme, Antaeus, Bel Ami, Krizia Moods
In my city it's all over the place, but no testers anywhere, and all bottles stand sealed, so nobody buys them, orange bubblegum thing that people mention bothers me, but I'll probably blind buy it...
Dark Oud by My Perfumes is what you need.
Same applies, doesn't matter. Santos, Must, Declaration, Pasha. But Roadster is another case.
