Based on what I read from you overall and that includes quite a lot I have a feeling that I know what is going to be the winner... Ambre 114. It deserves it's praise.
Other than that very good...
Owned a bottle but got rid of it as I never wore it. Too versatile and too "safe", which means I always have something that suits the mood better.
Hm, I think I heard some year back or so in another thread that the sample sets are gone, is that true?
And if they are still around, could one get a free mix of the scents, say, 3x IB, 2 x AT?
Agreeing on DrSeids statement.
212 is vile IMO. But, this being said, of the three my choice would be Code.
However I think i'd still rather go unscented.
As I said, I did exactly that and still wound up with the questions, stupid as they may be.

Thank you, I will do that. Again, great advice!
Great, thank you very much!
Very, very helpfull advice!
I will keep all that in mind.
regarding 4) I dont know about the quantities I should order.
Do you personally have experience...
after significantly getting bored with the industry and getting satisfied with my collection I finally want to put a long neglected plan into action, that is putting some stuff...
I have been using a note/letter holder.
Solid stone base and half a dozen thin, stiff metal wires that end in coils.
Worked like a charm but eventually I got rid of it as my desktop is rather...
Agree on the 1270 resemblance and lots of booze again for sure.
The mint is rather faint and overall it's that nice sweetish winter gem some maybe looking for.
For a minute I was considering it...
One thread not enough?
Divine choices, people.
I am enveloped in

With fall holding a tight grip on Berlin and Germany this has once again...
Great recs in here already, I want to add (and am very suprised this hasnt been mentioned yet) INVASIO BARBARE!
Special and classy as it gets and definitely a splurge ;)
Strong seconds on
Larimar, please let me know once you get this. Your opinions cover my questions 9 times out of 10 and I'm truly hooked right now.
Also, if someone would be willing to split this let me now!
From Silverbullets list:
Neat, clean wardrobe!
First real date she ended up crawling into my neck because of the scent I wore.
Have been wearing SLIVER AOUD lots since that day :)
IMO not alike at all, either.
Bottled and event that I am looking to sell.
Well see, but a few that itch me are
Ambre Nuit/Bois dArgent.
None of them FBs though...
Why not? Because I dont have 8000 $.
>10: Sliver Aoud, it's great in the heat and the GF eats it off my skin, too
>5: Lumiere Noir ph, APOM ph, Cuba (C&S)
But I often wear 2 frags per day.
Other than that it's been widely...
Only thing I notice that despite very down to earth discussions and VERY thorough and insightful reviewing on basenotes money still gets you somewhere.
It was Malle and Amouage who right away had...
How I wished this to be true.
Coco Noir, sounds like a legacy by itself.
The bottle is perfect, too.
But grapefruit as a main player? I mean GRAPEFRUIT?
Saddening how little they care anymore...
This poll will be interesting to me.
I have been milking my IB sample for some time now and I think it may be time to invest in the discovery set.
Cuba Czech and Speake
Seconds on Linstant Extreme and especially Ambre Nuit.
For what it's worth this is the very first time I see Petruccijc mis-replying to a thread :D
:shocked: These are sublime!
Cool Water for me, did the deed.
Currently Diors Iris in Homme, Tauers Rose in Incense Rose and the Orange Blossom in APOM
I am opposed to the idea as well but for completely different reasons.
Firstly the atmosphere:
I myself have hopped over from time to time and found the females side more personal, more chatty...
Once again, trying to get rid of a few scents that I dont use much anymore.
This is just the provisonal list, will update with exact descriptions.
All with cap in box unless differently stated.
Do love this gem. I got the trio of LNPH, APOM and AplS and this get's by far the most wearings.
A classic: Aramis, Azzaro, Paco or something like that
Something classic: Habit Rouge, Bel Ami or something like that
Something bold: Kouros, knize 10 or something like that
Well a few BasenotesMarchMadnesses ago they did fight and pretty hard at that, I think L'Air won...
Anyway, my favs
Midnight in Paris, Dior Homme (jumped the vintage waggon eventhough I knew wat I was getting into, will likely be able to unload it though but figured I'l hold onto it until the colder months), Hot...
L'Air du Desert Marocain
Jeff, I would have appreciated a reply, also a negative one. I am still very interested and was wondering whether you will be doing another Aventus. Please get back to me via mail, if you have...
Yeah. But admittedly I have lately vendoured backwards a little towards the safer, more crowdpleasing scents.
Own a bottle and it has got maybe two full wearings. Too tough to pull off for me i fear :(
Absolutely ridiculous name.
It actually does not, sorry :)
Physical appearance IMO do not matter when it comes to fine fragrances.
But from what you have written, I think Rose31 will suit you just fine.
And another no, I wouldnt do it.
Lancel, enable your wardrobe ;)
Pelle: Hard to recommend anything, he's got it all.
I was thinking GivenchyIII when I say he has it. Pelle is that the vintage juice?
Other than that Lumiere...
It could also be due to the fact that when it is really cold other smells tend to diminish. I dont know whether this is due to less molecular movement (but it sounds sensible to me) but during the...
Generally, I'm strongly against any kind of stereotyping, ruling or whatever of our hobby. What to wear, when to wear, bring it on, I dont care.
But during the wintertime I find myself craving...
I find it extremely misleading and stripped from content.
From that ad I would have expected something dry, possibly etheral along the lines of (self explanatory) L'Air, not the fresh-ish, rotten...
I'm with SmellsLIke on this, I do not test in the passing, merely getting a whiff from the cap.
If I am interested in a fragrance I spray on paper and my skin and observe the development on both....
Must be a good idea, since the acronym SL is free in the upper class fragrance market...
I'm not gonna try it as I seriously fear falling for yet another Amouage -.-
God knows I would love to smell ANY version of this grail of yours, hednic!
Congratulations on the well deserved reward of your persistance.
email sent regarding aventus.
would love a spot!
When really down I do not wear frags.
They are too quickly linked to the emotion in my case.
Since in Germany the 24th is the big day and I'm about to enjoy a nice afternoon with the family I wanted to wish all of you a merry christmas and happy holidays.
None. i'm far too overprotective with my frags. THere are a lot I regret not BUYING though.
I wouldnt want an alternative for BJ as I have yet to come across one that is remotely similar.
Yeah, Cool water may fit the bill but I was going to recommend a nice fig scent, in this case and speaking for myslef i'd say Figues et Garcons by Nez a Nez.
C&S Cuba is another favourite for the...
A mislabeled 75ml ofMinotaure, BNIB on ebay for the opening bid - 10 €.
As true as it is with the rest of the world.
Been good, sold Charogne and got myself some 40 ml of
INSANELY good amber.
SLiver Aoud today
i dont like it
Interested in the SDV as well (something like 20 ml). Might go ahead and join the Aventus wagon then, too.
I assume you'l keep those going?
they are all divine
dislike the cucumber in it
My own niche favourites for clubbing are the frequently complimented
tonight I think I will go with either Black Tie or Lumiere Noir, leaning towards...
Jup, a fav. Was one of my very first niches.
and when he left it was the scent of Istanbul and is going to be for several years to ome :)
But hell yeah, perfect accompaniment!
Finally got it.
Anyway, Ambre 114 is great, my SotD and decidedly FBW.
To be fair that sentence does sound like a princess talking about her favourite unicorn :)
lol I thought he meant "coming out" or somethin.
@ PM, I dont get it.
Have not seen these 2.5 oz bottles around so far!
I love resurrecting threads :)
MR all the way.
Thanks, I will check that out. Kinda sucks that I have to buy a new book if I want to read them completely, especially since I had to order the current oe from the UK...
I have never said this since I joined BN but this comes as close to Holy Grail material as I have experienced. Not in the way that it exceeds all other fragranes qualitywise or regarding uniqueness...
Are you talking about Montale or Nez a Nez?
Either way, by now I own Wild Aoud also (gloriously radiating) and one from Nez a Nez - Figue et Garcons (translucent, sweet fig.Great in the heat.) and...
NO FLAME WARS PLEASE!!! Keep it civil!
Title pretty much sais it all.
Lately I have been re-enjoying the guide a lot. I do not concur with all review, far from it, but they are sharp witted,...
I personally prefer the Cuir Beluga.
Having tried dozens and dozens of leather scents I highly appreciate one done right. It's precisely how you described it - the Suede is smooth and refined....
Exactly. Far superior to the pathetic, yet more expensive clone ;)
I havent tried al of them but IB and LN are both worth to be AT LEAST sampled.
Bottle looks expensive, no?
Jup, the one I mean looks entirely different.
Lifes too short to mourn and there are too many other great scents around to pay vintage prices for PPH or the like.
I cant take any more ridiculously priced "Exclusifs" or whatever.
Will not even try this.
Hoarding tendency, alterning, collecting, in this order.
I smelled them both and I found For Him creamier, less powdery but also sweeter.
I would prefer the Zara but I'm no fan of NH anyway.
I will give it another go this weekend and come back with...
I stand corrected by my own thread from this summer that has reappeared :)
Must go back, I had completely forgotten how much I did like it.
I dont think I will be bying myself anything for christmas
I smelled all of them while pickung up Sprint thi summer and they had a few good ones however nothing I found groundbreaking.
I dont think many people would have noticed if it had not been so widely discussed.
