TSA in Atlanta (I'm convinced) stole my Opium and a nearly full bottle of L'Instant! I REALLY want to replace my Opium since it has been discontinued! Help me out! Buy or trade!
Hey guys! Been a LONG time. I left my bottle of Opium pour homme at a hotel! I want to swap my 2.5 oz 75 ml PDB (BNIB with cellophane intact) for as new a bottle of Opium pour homme as I can get,...
(yeah, no kidding. This one will be around in the year 3111)......OK
Which frag will make the females hump my leg?
Gucci pour homme.....I'm Catholic and incense is sometimes used. Pencil shavings Sunday. Love it. Maybe tomorrow......
OH, and also Fart.....seems like some slob always farts in church.....who...
From dmarino's great collection:
Acqua di Parma Colonia
Opium pour homme EDP
follower be nice. I have only like 22 to choose from....
Bvlgari pour homme or pour homme Extreme.
Opium pour homme EDT.....AND EDP....
I think of a night club where I'm easily in the top 1 percentile in age. It's too smoky, wayyy to frickin loud and the single men are in the rut wearing their AdG.....the whole place reeks of it. Not...
Jaipur homme, became cloying vanilla bomb
Escape (CK, hate, vomit)
Zino Davidoff, liked for a day, then began to dislike intensely
Well, if you like smelling fresh and classy and lemony at age 22 then I think you should use it. Of course, I only use it because I'm in late 40s....;-)
Wow, had no idea there were so many lemony frags out there! While it suits my own personal tastes, I sort of thought, Well is lemon a masculine scent? Then I thought, Well I don't give a sh*t....I...
Thanks everyone! Keep em coming! And just to be clear, I do like blatant lemon note, not necessarily a lemon accord. I've smelled Boucheron Homme before and it just doesn't smell like lemons to me...
I'm still on my lemon note kick and want to try some new options. I have AdP Colonia and R&G Jean Marie Farina Extra Veielle EDC. I've heard of a couple more, Blonheim Boquet (sp?) and Monsieur...
LOL....love this. You see? There is no accounting for these Zinobots....they love their Zino. I don't get it, but, evidently, they do! Vive le difference!
Hugo EDT by Hugo Boss.
Yes, second. Stole my thunder. Extreme would work well too. Very refined, classy scent.
Even though you work at home 3 weeks per month, you still apply your SOTD....and give it some serious thought before you do.
I gave away a perfectly good bottle of Aqua di Gio because it has a tendency to shout as though in a crowded dance club, which is a common venue for this fragrance. Being....more mature....by a...
Paco is soapy and classy, where Brut sort of smells cheap and watery.
Cool Water early PM
Guerlain Vetiver late PM to present
Burberry London EDT.
Elements Aqua by Hugo Boss...
God bless Margaret Thatcher! Rest in peace Ronald Wilson Reagan!
I'd have to say it was Terre d Hermes. I'd smell the atomizer constantly...amazed, but I couldn't bring myself to actually wear it....so I traded it away. Easy trade, went very very fast...
I'm going to say Grey Flannel....I thought, WHO the ______ would wear this concoction?
Black Aoud. Not familiar either, but I'm thinking book store..
Fleur du Male....sounds flowery. Shower replacement.
Chanel No. 5....give it to my mom for mother's day..
Atman by Phat Farm....anyone else have this?
Dr. Creed......Holy sheep Sh*t.........awesome. What DON'T you have? That would be a smaller picture!
I'm going to say.......college football game. Big 10 college football game.....it smells like a clean victory...
OK, well, if it smells like lemons it's a lead pipe cynch I will be getting it. I have Acqua di Parma Colonia and R&G Jean Marie Farina Extra Vieille EDC, so I will be adding a third lemon accord....
Hell, I don't know....this thread is cracking me up....
Tommy Bahama Set Sail South Seas.....and not even sure why, since I don't particularly like it.
I can't wear it. It's too redolent, overpowering.
But you know.....I've never ever bought a room fragrance that lasted longer than 15 minutes. For some reason, the Cool Water sticks around for a long time.
throw up, yeah no kidding. You'd really have to get a dim-witted slut to "bend over" as he says. The frag is just part of the package. If it weren't then guys who look like Steve Buscemi...
Which of your frags (presumably a couple bought blind) have you used--and better serves--as a room freshener? I will go first:
1. Cool Water by Davidoff
2. Nautica Competition (my 9 y.o. son...
HammerFist, you're just killing some people! LOL....you know, the "haters!"
Let's give them all a Nelson Muntz: Ha-Haaaa!
Just scored a 3.3oz tester of Burberry London from Fragrance shop.com for 23.95 + 5.95 shipping. All it lacked was the lid and the marketing box.
Equipage to me was a million flower gardens in my nose. Hyper, hypercloying....maybe something 18th century French aristocrats would splash on to cover up their never-bathe funk. It was a blind buy...
Second on the Burberry London and Opium pour homme YSL. You might want to find a sample of Monk by Michael Storer and two other Storer frags, Il Giardino and Dijn are all very sweet.
My spanish teacher gave me the name Geronimo and my middle name is Matthew, so how about:
I don't know, I'm...
I like Guerlain Vetiver. Only Guerlain I own. I like it because it smells unusual and the drydown is green and spicey. Don't know about the other ones....isn't L'Instant reminiscint of Egoiste? I...
AND, for a much less expensive doppleganger for AdP-C, you could select Roget & Gallet Jean Marie Farina Extra Vieille.
ampersand giving you some problems?
Less = More, More = Less
More = More, Less = Less
AdG projected so much, I couldn't even get it down low enough of an app to avoid it's cloyingness. I had to trade it. Obsession and Jaipur homme I would also put in the less = more category.
OK, I'm pretty sure I'm reprising an old thread, but here goes. Some frags overpower and change for the worse when overapplied but are great when used in small quantities. Conversely, there are some...
Any occasion. Period.
1997. Coast soap. Pre-dates my frag obsession.
If the price of AdP is off-putting, Scentsitivity replied to my thread about a less expensive doppleganger, which is Roger & Gallet Jean Marie Farina Extra Vieille EDC. It is really quite similar.
yes, definitely Opium pour hommee EDT and EDP. Strong anis in the opening and very very nice drydown, but then you know that, so....
Mr. Coffee hit upon one that I would consider creamy in a bad way: Jaipur homme.....cloying heliotrope vanilla cream bomb...
Opium pour homme
Polo Double Black
Everything on my wife's dresser, because she's had them for like 7 years, never uses them, they're totally exposed to sun and two of my 3 kids (the "girls") randomly spray them on themselves.
Bravo, sir! This is HILARIOUS!
Frankly, I have to say that it irritated me that Acqua di Parma Colonia seemed to be designated unisex, and then when I asked the Community for a less expensive doppleganger to AdP, most people said...
Opium pour homme EDT
First off, I have to say I'm pleased that we have 22 churchies before me! Anyway, I was a church today and I wore Burberry London. Not that it matters, but I was at Catholic mass.
I suppose Gucci...
Rive Gauche, of course, but Caron por un homme also sort of smells shavey creamy...
On my birthday, it must be Burberry London....
Opium pour homme EDT and
Opium pour homme EDP.
Oh, by the way, young man....It's: "My friends and I usually wear....blah blah...."
Chicks dig good grammar! ;-)
I think any woman (or girl in your case) would be hard pressed to dislike Burberry London. But BL is meant for close hand to hand combat....I think all the AdG in the air would swamp it...
I like L'Eau D'Issey. I don't detect the sourness, but I do detect....nothing after a few minutes...
Opium pour homme EDT
Opium pour homme EDP
Polo Double Black
R&G JMF Extra V EDC
which is the better scent
-overall smell--D&G by a nose...
-most liked by females?--dont really know
what trufflehunter said....
Silver Black -- Azzaro
Polo Double Black
Polo (green)....Oh wait. I compliment myself on that one....
I like Acqua di Parma Colonia so much I had to find a less costly doppleganger for it, which is Roger & Gallet Jean Marie Farina Extra Vieille EDC, which I see didn't make the list, even though it's...
Fragrance Notes : Woods, fresh citrus and spicy leaves.
Opium pour homme.....because it's 16 F today.
Well......OK....I still don't get it, and why ya'll don't get the pronounced bologna accord in PS....LOL...just teasin' :-)
I would go with Bvlgari Extreme. It's a dry, classy scent that doesn't cloy.
Holy sh*t! Extreme was either a punching bag or totally ignored....*heavy sigh*.....
I think I'm going to have to agree that Paco is a masterpiece, a soapy masterpiece--in accordance with the first couple of responses, but the REAL masterpiece and a drydown creation of God is--while...
In honor of my friend Stroll Your OR Strolly Our:
In the morning, all the way to my 6:00 workout at the Y:
Then, hit the showers and apply the Extreme:
Roger & Gallet Jean Marie Farina Extra Vieille EDC.
Leigha, your SOTD is ...
what smells similar to that? ;-)
My SOTD is Opium pour homme EDT. The most sublime dry down ever...
Scentsivity just recommended this scent to me and I got it. Love it! It's my cheaper alternative to Aqua di Parma Colonia.
I don't know and frankly I don't give a damn (don't get me wrong, I think it's an interesting question). We're a community, gays, straights and whatever, sharing an interest.
Opium pour homme is always quite inexpensive....online anyway...
Ahhh, the ugly bottle. Actually it was this very thread (the one today about terrible bottle designs) that led me to think about...
Here is the pic in case you're too lazy to click.....LOOK OUT! SHE'S GOTTA FLOWERBOMB!!!!!
I thought this would be an interesting idea for a thread. I am leaving for my once monthly, one week visit to my corporate HQ on 1-24. Tomorrow. As you know, airport security is somewhat heightened...
Agree totally. I scanned through the posts to find this, because I knew it would be here. Le Male is getting ludicrously literal here, aren't they?
Good points, xyakks.
Bummer. I really like Hugo Boss and one of the RL frags, Polo, is FAR from average IMHO.
Trenchant. Just as two examples. AdG and any CK scent. Designer scents, mass marketed, usually over-applied to gain the attention of the opposite sex. The comment or reputation I abhor would be:...
