The video is utterly ridiculous:
"I created this fragrance to trigger your full potential ".
"this fragrance is designed for the man who catch the eye of every woman"
The seduction's guru...
Do you think is something general? something due to Fragrancex storage or to the fact of being a tester?
A currrent formulation bottle, a tester boxed in plain box from Fragrancex
My best mixes:
- 2 chest sprays "L'haie fleurie du hameau", a jasmin soliflore by L'Artisan + 2 neck sprays Caron's Third man
- 2 chest sprays of Diorella + 2 Eau Sauvage
- Christmas mix:...
Don't know if is just my bottle but Caron's "Pour un homme" just beat and run
Fougère Bengale is a sort of "pop art" version of Sables
Enhancing mix: 1 spray of Diorella on the upper chest + 2 neck/hair sprays of Eau Sauvage
Jardin apres le mousson Hermes
Nobody found similarities between Habit Rouge structure: citrus— neroli—opoponax—hint of leather and the "Ideal pyramid": citrus—neroli—tonka—leather? Its a marzipan Habit Rouge?
As an ex-compulsive fragrance buyer, I should be careful with my buying frequency to avoid the "dust on boxes" syndrome
Right now I can buy a new one, I'm considering:
- MPG's Parfum d'Habit...
I'm a Bowling Green's user, but sadly nowadays is hard to find online -most after shave or small bottles.
Which one could be the closer alternative to its wonderful celery smell?
Héritage Guerlain: ten lost years in a stupid relationship.
Guerlain's Héritage: It was the 90's scent for me, my ex-wife each birthday gave me a 100 ml. bottle as a present (I didn't like the scent very much), then I owned only one perfume, and nowadays...

What's a "macho" post 00's?
Habit Rouge: sweet, bourgeois and cold.
It always reminds me Severine's (Catherine Deneuve in "Belle de Jour") husband when he whips her while she's tied on a tree.

Aoud Cuir d'Arabie
I love the masculine line of MPG: unusual, dramatic, butch
Is Caron niche? (low distribution, not designer...)
If so: 1 Le Troisième Homme 24€/125 ml.
2 Yatagan 26€/125 ml.
3 Pour un Homme 22€/ 125 ml.
"Guerlain Homme" (mojito's appeal)
"Vanilia" (L'Artisan Parfumeur) or its MPG counterpart "Fleur de Comores"
"Beyond Paradise Men"
Even Le "Jardin Après la Mousson"
TOTALLY AGREE: that's a way to pervert a free opinion forum. STOP FREE ADVERTSING
Both are dated 80's and 90's, but Antaeus right now is post-dated (80's are back).
Egoïste is a sandal-fruity soup, go for the ashes of Antaeus.
Rive Gauche Pour Homme:
People don't catch retro wink, instead, smells old barber lotion.
Thank you for your opinions
(and excuse my english: choice...)
I think both fragrances share the spicy exotic feeling.
If you should choice one, wich one would you choice and why?
Worst: you and your mum at the doctor; the doctor suddenly asks: " Oh! Ms. X (my mum) what a nice perfume are you wearing!... or is that your son?"
So I thought that the perfume should be...
Sequoia (Comme des Garçons Red Series)

Another vote to Idole (Lubin; O. Giacobetti)

Niche: Al-Oudh (L'Artisan Parfumeur) totally underrated
Designer: Midnight in Paris (Van Cleef and Arpels)

D0N'T BUY AT FRAGRANCEX: If your item don't arrive, your money is lost (never refund or resend)
Past August, I oredered a 100 ml. bottle of Encre Noire, they told me that 08/28/09 was shipped,...
In my opinion Dior Homme epitomizes the masculine trends of 00-10
Vetiver Extraordinaire (didn't exist then)
Without hesitation: Le Troisieme Homme de Caron.
Fougère + jasmin-carnation + spices
(y encima se consigue nuevo en gragancenet por 26 €/ 125 ml.!)
Another vote for Caron's Troisieme Homme
In a more girly (strictly floral, more accurately): L'Haie Freuri du Hameau (L'Artisan Parfurmeur).
I did an experinent: my mother was wearing L'Haie...
Buy it! blindly, without hesitation, even if you won't wear it, even if you think is dated...such that beauty should be in any wardrobe
Talking about PuH: how similar/different is to "Impact pour Homme"? Is just an eau de parfum, a more concentrated version or is another animal?

I'm considering to buy Aoud Cuir d'Arabie, but I have seen that Montale has launched a new Aoud-cuir frag: Aoud Leather, I would like to know the main differences between both fragances.

Nobody perceives similarities between Coriolan and Grey Flannel-Narciso Rodriguez Him?
After Manzanita's adquisition some of the Diptyque's first frags were discontinued, L'Autre among them.
But some people say that is not discontinued just limited its distribution.
So Should I...
IMHO very femenine and loud, I can't bear hibiscus seeds in any fragance .
I bought blind a 30 ml bottle and passed to my sister that is crazy about it.
Guerlain Homme: forget all the prejudices, is a fantastic fragance that match perfectly your target
Virgilio: a little bit more bitter but unique (see German Ebay, I think there is a bottle)
Another silly question (I'm bored )
Pick one famous perfumer and propose what's in your opinion his/her best and his/her worst creation.
I'm very curious about your perceptions.
Is one of mu favourite its only flaw is projection/longevity (not totally bad, but could be better)
But at the end...
Is discontinued? or limited to central Diptyque's boutique?
Extra-heavy: Lorenzo Villoresi Patchouli
"Aoud Cuir d'Arabie" de Montale 5 stars!
I would like to know his description to justify the maximun score.
Finally no Montale-revenge
I bought a bottle of Sables to Fragancenet some months ago, it was ok: perfectly sealed... but when I apply the juice is almost indetectable for people arround me, and I'm becoming a litle bit...

A relative smelled it, and due to my expensive-frag-reputation, he suposed: "that should cost you arround 120 € , isn't?"
I said: almost 200
Borneo 1834 a new full bottle of 50 ml: 44 €.

Practical advice: prostitute your memories.

No fragance: a natural odeur that indicates that your immunological system is sligthy different from hers.

Common places, hysterical echoes, fragance is the land of suggestion.
