Pure Distance M
Definitely L'homme from your list.
Dior Homme intense
When I first started to really become passionate about fragrances, I used YouTube as a way to get suggestions on what's good, what's bad, etc. I think what led me to follow YouTube reviews, was...
Everything in my signature...
Looking for the above mentioned fragrances. Have a couple to swap. PM if interested. Thanks for looking!
the A*men series by a mile...
I held off on buying for a long while after it was reintroduced, because of the hype. I bought it and I love it! I really think all of the Thierry Muglers are well done. I love how they took the...
the former 3 smell more floral than aquatic to my nose. Maybe Sel Marin and Voyage aren't exact matches, as Voyage IS more sweet and synthetic, but it seems very strange that the majority of you...
I guess aquatics just aren't my thing. I dislike Bvlgari aqua and marine, Voyage, and now Sel Marin. I like L'eau d'issey and acqua di gio, and Millesime Imperial but the former fragrances really...
It smells like clean,fresh, white sheets. There is nothing inherently wrong with that. The problem is that the smell is magnified X100! I scrubbed my hand for 5 minutes straight and I STILL smell it....
I just sampled the 20ml decant of Sel Marin that I recently purchased and I swear this stuff smells EXACTLY like Nautica Voyage. Not a completely unpleasant smell, but it does make me extremely...
Tom Ford Black Orchid
Creed Jardin d' Amalfi
Frederic Malle Carnal Flower/Portrait of a Lady
Guerlain Spiriteuse Double Vanille
My wife really likes L'eau d' issey and Terre de Hermes, neither of which I own anymore, lol! In general she likes reserved fresh scents. Which is the opposite of 75 percent of my collection.
Edition Blanche is a safe blind buy but if you are worried about projection, I would definitely pass on that one. I owned it, and ended up giving it away because the projection was MAYBE 2-3 hours...
Dior Homme Intense from your list!
Mine have to be Pure Havane, LIDGE, and M. I think that Geranium Pour Monsieur and Lumiere Noire will be added to that list very soon....
please give us so examples...
I had an SA at a perfume kiosk sniff New Haarlem that I had sprayed on a tester strip tell me it was disgusting but in the same breath tell me that thallium was the nectar of the gods...
Pure Distance M
Silver Mountain Water
Bois du Portugal
Honestly, hype will.probably get you a crowd pleasers no problem. I promise you though that you will end up spending alot of money because you will not be truly satisfied unless you sniff and sample...
PM sent on Versace Dreamer
I am due to receive a 20ml decant in the mail today. I hope I do not have the same experience...
Both are great but HM fits the occasion better IMO.
Hello! Here is what is for sale:
Creeds purchased from Neiman Marcus at Tysons Galleria, Amouage purchased from Luckyscent.
2.5oz Aventus 60% full (paper wrapper missing that surrounds bottle, PM...
Bois du Portugal
I tried it and was not impressed. The only one from Prada worth purchasing (that i have smelled) IMO is Prada Amber Pour Homme
I cannot see your fragrance wardrobe so I don't know if you've tried it but I suggest Creed Virgin I sland Water. It reminds me so much of when I was stationed in Hawaii.
D&G Pour Homme(vintage)
Interesting. I thought Rose 31, LDDM, and honestly LDDM were all okay. I ended up giving away LDDM, swapping Rose 31, and now trying to swap GIT, but I would NEVER swap IB unless it was for a flacon...
I have not smelled the 2012 version but I really like the vintage version
It's great to see the diversity of smell preference in here
Pure Distance M followed by Pure Malt
Hello! I just wanted to see if there were any Maryland/military frag heads out there. It would be nice to get together and check out the Tyson's Galleria to do some sampling or somewhere else if...
I LOOOOOVE when my wife wears Daisy by Marc Jacobs and believe it or not Tommy Girl. That stuff makes me go wild! SN: My wife doesn't wear it but I go crazy for Carnal Flower as well. I used to own...
Looking for bottles or decant a of the above mentioned fragrances. PM me if you have them. Thanks for looking!
For me its meh. I used to really like it, but the more fragrances I got my nose on, the less "special' it was to me. I eventually sold it, to buy something else.
someone's got a sweet tooth. ;)
I have to choose 2: Carnal Flower and M.
I would suggest Virgin Island Water and Royal Oud.
- - - Updated - - -
for work I would substitute Silver Mountain Water for Virgin Island Water.
The fragrances I seem to reach for the most often are LIDGE and DHI. Personal favorite must be Pure Distance M though.
Least Favorite: Anise
I have never tried Third Man but Lolita Lempicka Au Masculin has an amazing vanilla drydown and I personally find it suitable for summer/spring.
I would "tactically acquire" badarun's Ambre Precieux, Ambre 114, and Fahrenheit!!!
They dont know it but I seem to follow alot of the same interests as theBeck and Jack Hunter.
Pure Distance M
and Jardin d' Amalfi has been getting alot of press as of late
Really tough decision but I think Pure Malt wins. Both are must haves IMO.
If it were me, I would choose Le Male. I think the better choice for you would be La Nuit. Both smell good though.
TdH gave me a wow factor when I first smelled it. L'eau d' issey is just a good smelling fragrance. TdH is excellent.
Chanel Allure Edition Blanche
Bleu de Chanel
Chanel Allure Homme eau extreme
La nuit de l'homme
L'homme and L'eau d' issey
Givenchy Play Intense
Ed Hardy Love and Luck
Hanae Mori HM
On my skin: Black Afgano, Black Orchid, Pure Malt, Royal Oud, BdP, Carnal Flower, and Amber Absolute.
This, and I would add DHI and PH to your list.
Its amazing, and I dont say amazing about alot of fragrances. Honestly it feels like a niche IMO. It does have the same structure as A*men but it absolutely has the whiskey soaked berry accord, and I...
They are different enough to own both.
I honestly smell Royal Oud throughout the day without even trying. GIT, MI, and even Aventus, though I do enjoy them, dont seem to last longer than 3-4 hours on my skin.
4. Don't buy too many bottles at first, you'll just end up selling them later. When starting out, it makes sense to spend more money on samples rather than bottles.
This should be number 1!!!!...
Cmon man seriously!!! Another reformulation thread?
Ck be reminds me of when I was in High School and I traded this kid across the street from me Micheal Jordan for it. Nautica Competition reminds me of right after I graduated Basic Training when I...
Crazy. Its amazing to me the difference that skin chemistry and fragrance composition makes in the wearing of a fragrance! I have extremely dry skin so when I could still smell it 10 hours later I...
If you dont like the tar note and enjoy the dry down, I would suggest Pure Malt over A*men. I love A*men but swapped my bottle away awhile ago for something else. I was about to pick it up again but...
A*men is much better IMO. I have owned both at one time and while A*men is absolutely enjoyable from start to finish, Animale has this funky synthetic note that I just didnt appreciate. I prefer Pure...
Selection Verte/Millesime Imperial for HOT day, Reflection Man/GIT for a cool summer evening.
This. Additionally, I dont understand how people do not smell the oud in this one. Perhaps its because I dislike oud that it is one of the more prominent notes on my skin. Regardless, I really enjoy...
Millesime Imperiale by a mile
$141 for 50ml shipped doesnt sound too bad at all...
I have never tried Guerlain's Vetiver but I have tried Encre Noir and to be honest, I thought it was disgusting. Grey Vetiver is a very clean bright, slightly sweet (to my nose) vetiver. It is an...
Last week I bought vintage Fahrenheit, vintage Dior Homme Intense, Pure Malt, Selection Verte, Royal Oud, a very old bottle of Le Male and 50 mls Jardin d' Amalfi. I might be done for awhile....
PM sent on the Light Blue
It would be easier to choose between saving my wife and saving my son than choosing between these two.....
Dislike both but if I had to choose it would be Chanel Blue because it is more versatile.
Red Aoud, Jubilation XXV
Pure Distance M 100ML
Creed Royal Oud
L'instant de guerlain extreme
Creed Millesime Imperiale
30 ml Black Afgano BNIB $125 shipped. SOLD!!
PM if interested. Thanks for looking!

I only have one. That is Dior Homme Sport. 10+ hours
Thats very unfortunate that you had such a bad experience with bottle leakage. I ordered mine from LS and it came perfectly packaged no leaks whatsoever. As a matter of fact, I also ordered Chypre...
I get zero longevity from most Creeds but Royal Oud lasts 15+ hours on me. I think that certain notes last longer on some peoples skin more than others. Of course there are longevity monsters (BA,...
I am not sure if its been reformulated but when I wore Cool Water in the 90s it was much denser and had an overall richer smell to my nose. I would say that the 90s Cool Water smells much closer to...
While it will be difficult to find, it can be done. I was on a hunt to find the vintage, and within a course of a week was able to acquire 3 bottles. While everyone is entitled to their own opinion,...
I would recommend against daily wear. Too sweet, could become quite linear and boring over time. While, I personally feel there are much better options, Rochas Man is one of those fragrances you wear...
Bois du Portugal
Green Irish Tweed
I love LIDGE! initially I was very offput by the citrus and anise in the opening. After a few wearings however, it became one of the staples in my collection. I actually ended up getting a backup...
So after a great deal of research on various news articles, it seems P&G entered a joint venture with D&G in 2005, while taking control of D&G's fragrance portfolio in July 2006. With that being...
@Slayerized. See above
So here is where the plot thickens. I have a 4.2 oz bottle from 2007 that has on the sticker P&G Beauty but made in Italy, AND its a sticker bottle!!!
