My favorite is Eau Noire with Ambre Nuit coming in a very close second.
1985: Green Irish Weed
Most prolific men's scent of all time.
5"10 is pretty average. But if you're looking to add a few ups look no further than Michael Jordan Flight, it'll increase not only your height but also adding a max of 3 inches to your vertical leap.
Can't say it's a masterpiece for me, but it's definitely very good which is what I voted for. What's striking about Nio is that it has great performance for a citrus/green fragrance!
I'd go with the regular Dior Homme
Black Afgano smells bad, and it smells like ass. It's badass!!
Hilde Soliani Bell'Antonio is your best bet my friend,
Hilde Soliani Bell'Antonio
Opulent Shaik No 77
One that always comes up is Paul Smith London, it has no coconut as a note, yet it has a very coconutty scent. I used to wear it, and it did at times remind me of coconut. Great scent that I...
Guerlain Arsene Lupin Dandy
And maybe some Parfumerie Generale Coze
Memoir Man, subtle and mysterious.
For me too. Dia is good, but it's too subtle. But i'm not saying that Dandy is a beast, it definitely is not.
*Sigh* here we go: Aventus.
I've never received a compliment while wearing it, not even from my wife or family, very frustrating!
1. Royal Oud (best Creed ever released)
2. Spice and Wood
3. Pure While Cologne
4. Jardin d'Amalfi
5. Royal Mayfair
DNQ (did not qualify). Aventus, it had more batch variations than the total...
All-time: La Nuit de L'Homme
Aventus: Nil (guess I need to get a better batch, preferably those fruity ones, I suspect mine is too ashy/smoky)
Guerlain Heritage: 2nd formulation
Creed Aventus: Batch Unknown
M7, Jaipur Homme is great too.
You're probably right. I did test a few other fragrances that were stronger that day, so they may have overpowered the RM.
I'll do a fun test soon since I have decants of Windsor from both 2009...
Tested this over the weekend. What a letdown! The new one for sure had a more greener opening as the eucalyptus wasn't as strong as the 2009/2010 Windsor. Then it did settle just like Windsor,...
Sorry Kera! You'll have to move across the border next time ;) I joke.
The few times I wore it my wife said I smelled like herbal medicine, go figure.
Hilde Soliani Bell'Antonio is the best I've come across so far.
Puredistance Black. Big gamble and a big win! Blind buys are fun......sometimes.
I've ordered from them a few times, took them a week to prepare the package, but once it was in DHL's hands the package was smooth sailing and got me (Canada) in a week and half.
I'd say a week. For example I've gone to Mexico (beach resorts) a few times in the past several years and I did not bring any fragrances with me, I knew I would be in the water most of the time so...
Guerlain Songe dun bois d'ete
Brooklyn Perfume Company Oud
Armani Oud Royal
just to name a few
I admit that most Rojas have not been crowd pleasers for me. But I do agree that Vetiver Extrait is probably the safest and most pleasing, it has good lasting power but does not project too much...
Ladies and gents. The following new launches are now available in Niche essence:
Amouage Opus IX
Xerjoff Gran Ballo
Parfums de Marly Sedbury
Creed Aventus (No, it's not a...
An unremarkable rose and oud combo on the sweeter side, didn't get much sandalwood. Songe dun bois d'ete is the oud that Guerlain has done right. SR is quite unnecessary imo.
If you have a spare L'Artisan cap (new versions) please let me know.
+1 on Frapin L'Humaniste
Also, Heeley Sel Marin is one of the best aquatics I've ever experienced, could round off your collection very well.
++ on R'Oud Elements, gorgeous fragrance. The orange and amber notes linger for a while.
I wear Amouage Honour Man a lot in the scorching summer heat, superb performer without being obnoxious, a fairly unique one to boot too!
M7 Oud Absolue, might be a little bit over $50, but still worth it. You might find a bottle for less than $50 online or ebay from time to time.
Yep, I bought my Royal Oud from an authorized retailer when it was first launched (at retail price too, silly I know), and the cap is very loose. The other ones I owned were a little better but...
The 1 that fits is probably fake. Joking. But yes, it's definitely my biggest pet peeve of Creed. My Creed caps are loose also except for my old MI bottle, my MI cap doesn't stay down, as soon as...
La Nuit for sure. DHI is more of a comfort scent for me than a compliment-getter.
Speaking of La Nuit, funny my wife told me today that she hosted a job interview this morning and the guy was...
Me and you both!
Francois Demachy can do no wrong, I believe in the man. Maybe it should be called "Believe", and then build an arsenal of flankers like Believe Intense, Believe Parfum, Believe Sport, Believe...
Lots of great suggestion already. I'll add Chanel Platinum Egoiste.
Miss Dior Cherie
Marc by Marc Jacob
Chanel Chance, Beige, Misia, Jersey, Coco Noir, No 22.
Creed Spring Flower
Creed Royal Oud
Guerlain Arsene Lupin (Dandy)
Roja Vetiver Extrait, which Roja stated that he created it to represent the ultimate in how a man should smell. I think he nailed it.
TF Grey Vetiver EDP is very similar to the Roja Vetiver in...
I admit I love wearing Roja fragrances, and I'm one that wears $20 shoes from Payless, socks and undies from Walmart and drives a Civic with the rear bumper hanging halfway to the ground. But...
Nailed it, very well said!
Guerlain Arsene Lupin (Dandy)
Another vote for M7
I agree the pricing is absurd. But like any other line I've experienced there are hit and misses. There are several that I really like and are worth owning to me, so thank goodness for FIF's Euro...
Not including my wife, only once on Dior Homme.
Not a compliment type of year for me so far, in fact I've received a lot more negative feedbacks than compliments.
Totally agree with you. I would definitely go with 1 spray if I ever find the courage to wear Fetish (the EDP is also really potent) again at work. But I do really enjoy wearing Vetiver Extrait to...
Actually Vetiver Extrait is ok for work as I don't find that one project as much as the others. But the 2 that got me in trouble were Fetish Parfum PH and Reckless Parfum PH, I had 3 sprays,...
I'm now reluctant to wear any extrait strength fragrances to work because the few times I wore Roja pafums to work I had a lineup of complaints bombarding me, but I did overspray a little and was...
Don't own Kouros, so I'll wear Body Kouros if that's ok :happy:
No worries, I park underground at work with machine gun securities, and it's being put in a secret fragrance compartment within the car (James Bond style), so my weaponry is safe from global warming...
Beautyspin, Lily direct, Perfume Emporium........just to name a few
Too bad they no longer have the oil. I remember they used to have the Musc Ravageur oil in the roll on, it was heavenly and layered well with the EDP.
Except for extraits, I usually freshen up after lunch, I usually bring the bottle with me and keep it in the car. after lunch I go to my car and bam bam 2 sprays, as good as new!
The vintage DG PH was a beast, I used to wear it in my university years, and with 3-4 sprays I can tell you that the stuff projected all over the lecture halls, my friends used to tell me that my...
If it's almond you're after then try Pegasus, for cinnamon try Oajan. Oajan and Herod have some similarities even though Oajan isn't really a tobacco based fragrance.
Like hednic I pretty much...
Annick Goutal Sables. Tried it based on the fact that I love lavender and immortelle and also my love affair with Dior Eau Noire. But there's something about Sables that is just too herbal for me,...
Smell: EDP, the sweet amber gives the overall scent a little more warmth and sensuality, make it even sexier.
Longevity: About the same for me
Sparkly citrus fragrances tend to make me happy, for example Xerjoff Nio, is just a very uplifting fragrance for me, a sniff of that is more effective than gulping down a bottle of Red Bull.
You need to find the made in Italy version of DG PH, the one that comes in a velvety/textured blue box. I find the newer versions still ok, but a lot more citrusy than the original. Even the new...
Vintage Dolce & Gabbana Pour Homme
Ralph Lauren Romance Silver
Gucci Rush for men
Amouage Fate Man
Z by Zegna
+1 on Michael Kors and Cuiron
Michael Kors is more about dired fruits/plum where cuiron is a fresh plum.
Le Male, I remember this stuff used to dominate the entire clubbing districts, the whole downtown core reeked of that stuff, totally ruined an otherwise great fragrance.
Other than that, Aventus,...
This is bad news as I wanted to order from EN, but yeah they said Canadian customs seizes packages so they stopped. But I've recently ordered from First In Fragrance a few times and their services...
The Bay in Yorkdale now carries Guerlain Exclusive collections, some of the popular ones have already been sold out, but they have just recently started and will continue to carry the Exclusive...
Rush is very good, and thankfully this stuff is still available locally. But the performance of this fragrance is atrocious! 1 hour and poof all gone, it's really too bad as I feel like I need to...
Wind Wood. A good woody violet fragrance that could give Fahrenheit a good run for its reputation.
Bingo! The verdict seems to be that people prefer the EDT. But i'm in the minority, I absolutely love the EDP, it's one of the very few that really impressed me from the designer realm recently,...
Caron Pour Un Homme, especially that I'm a big lavender fan, I have delayed in sniffing this one for many years, but I haven't figured out why.
Prada Luna Rossa
Sounds like it'll be along the lines of Leather Oud
I rarely wear aftershave.
But I always need to have blazers in the wardrobe, I think a few good blazers are good for some semi-formal events or just a night out.
Otherwise, at least a good suit...
Is it bottle worthy? Yes, every penny, it's my favorite from the Shooting Stars collection, it's definitely not the most unique fragrance out there, but it smells darn good, quite versatile and has...
Overall scent: Pluriel
Overall performance: IB
Overall comparison: Tie
Nice! For something that contains 100% real oud 65 Euro for 50ml is an absolute steal.
Well then, i'm going to do a sinking test then won't I? We'll see how that goes, this is as exciting as blind-buying fragrances. Also a good way to find out if an ex-gf really liked you lol.
My question is are they still using the roses from the Duke's own garden? If so, I'm in.
Atelier Cologne Trefle Pur, Cedrat Enivrant, Orange Sanguine.......(so many in this line do well in the summer heat with good performance)
Heeley Sel Marin
Xerjoff Nio, Kobe,...
This reminds me of a wood-beeds bracelet that an ex-girlfriend gave me 10 years ago. She was Cambodian, I remember clearly she told me to treasure the bracelet because it's made of a very precious...
Euphorium Brooklyn Cilice
I'm adding Inception to the list. Also best movie I've ever seen!
Have you contacted Guinness hednic? You need to put yourself in the books soon!
I received my order from FIF in a week and a half. It's true that requesting samples were not allowed if you used the discount. But they still threw in some extra goodies (though not the ones I...
Roja Vetiver Extrait
Parfums de Marly Byerley
Tom Ford Grey Vetiver EDP
That's good! Looking forward to test the new one in Holts and compare it to the 2009 and 2010 batch that I have, however i'm not optimistic about the prices because of the exchange rate, so It's...
I'm a fan of Canali and Zegna suits even though I don't own one. I usually find Hugo Boss suits (though not the best in the game) fit me the best, most Boss suits that I've tried (with the right...
3 sprays, the bottle pumps out a lot of juice per spray, it's just a very big mist, love these sprayers.
Roja Dove Enigma Pour Homme, I personally prefer this to TV or SDV. The only downside is the price-tag.
L'Humaniste is fantastic!!
But my go-to summer scent this year will definitely be Xerjoff Nio, the stuff is just mouth-watering.
As good as Diaghilev is it's just extremely difficult to wear, it's too formal for even the most formal events. Chypre Palatin (while I agree it kind of veers into the oriental direction) is rather...
I have a decant of it from many years ago (surely from a 60ml bottle) and also have a new 75ml bottle, to me they smell pretty much the same.
Visit is not a nutmeg-dominant fragrance to me, it's much more about incense and cedar with peppery undertones. I think it's a good fragrance that is quite wearable in the summer, even though it's...
I have a 2014 batch. I don't smell any vanilla, nor do I smell anything drastically different than the vintage (as I owned a bottle of the vintage), this batch is just as good as the original, and...
