Hello everyone, it's been a while.
Treated myself to a 100ml bottle of Grossmith Golden Chypre today. Very taken with it.
I am thinning out my wardrobe and have the following for sale. Sorry, UK buyers only. Signed for postage is included.
Creed Baie de Genievre 75ml EdT. Boxed and about 2/3 remaining - £80...
Interesting. I didn't get a cannabis note when I tried it, but I was in the clutches of it's liquid cousin at the time
Richard E Grant's Jack has a prominent cannabis/marijuana note. Perhaps he...
These were waiting for me last night, when I got home.
Light My Fire started out interestingly, but after half an hour the prevailing note was vetiver, a note I am not particularly fond of in it's...
It has a swastika on it?
OK, I'll play.
Bois du Portugal
Green Irish Tweed
Virgin Island Water
Spice and Wood
Silver Mountain Water
Royal Scottish Lavender.
Happy birthday, Jon!!!
Histoires de Parfums 1740 Marquis de Sade.
Probably all of them, as and when I run out of them. But I reckon that what I have will pretty much see me through until I have to don the old pine overcoat..
For me, SMW has a cold quality about it that lends itself to colder weather. Himalaya too.
Woke up to snow, so Himalaya seemed apt.
Like Mr Reasonable said, this is a testament to your good relationship with the SA's. Good for you and well done on this very rare acquisition.
It's absolutely brass monkey weather today, so it's Silver Mountain Water.
Another one for Himalaya.
I also prefer Silver Mountain Water as a cold, winter scent as well.
In no particular order,
Cacharel Pour Homme
What a lovely feeling that must have been, Change!
I got chased by a woman in a mall once. Mind you, she was wearing a uniform and brandishing a truncheon...
Creed Green Valley
Habit Rouge EdP
Frapin Speakeasy, which arrived this morning. Me likey.
Mid 70's to late 80's.
Chanel Pour Monsieur
The ones that made me go "WOW" were CdG Calamus and Habit Rouge EdP, made even better by the fact that neither of them cost an arm and a leg. Immediate purchases.
Nothing to report on question 2.
As have I. Can't wait to try it.
Sounds right up my street.
I own and love 1270 and 1697. I'm sort of ok with L'Humaniste and Terre de Sarment. Passion Boisse and Caravelle Epicee are just not for me.
I'm hoping that Speakeasy bears more resemblance to...
Creed Green Valley, a last wearing until next spring.
I read this in The Times today, too.
Still, from the organization that only wants straight bananas, what can one expect?
I first tried it about four years ago, sorry I have no idea which formulation it was. It conjured up very gothic images in my mind. It was a fine scent, just not for me. Definitely give it a go,...
My impressions of No 88 are:
"Good evening. My name is Dracula and I bid you welcome. Ah, the children of the night - what sweet music they make."
Pretty apt stuff for Halloween.
Le Labo Rose 31.
An EdP I'd heartily recommend is Habit Rouge. The EdT is great, but the EdP is stunning.
And the extrait...... Sublime.
3 x 75ml of Creed Green Valley, purely because it has been discontinued and I love the stuff.
Should be enough to last me until the old toes turn up.
Bond No 9 West Broadway.
It's a great fragrance and a true powerhouse. I originally wore it in the late Eighties and revisited it three or four years ago.
I still wear it, but to me there is something of it's time about...
Good old Aramis.
Sprayed it on this morning, and was instantly 21 again! Until I looked in the mirror.....
Caron's 3rd Man.
A daisy of a deal, Sir.
Orange Spice, while it's still around.
The opening is like being smashed in the face with a civet bat.
Fueille Vert today.
CdG Calamus today.
Penhaligons Opus 1870 today.
Habit Rouge EdP.
Love hearing about your flea market purchases, Duc!
PdN New York.
Quite a few people know in my case. I wouldn't call it a hobby, as I'm a wearer, not a collector.
Since my early teens I have worn fragrances, stuff from Avon and Yardley. In my twenties it was predominantly stuff like Aramis , Kouros, Chanel PM and Zino. A few years ago I saw an article in a...
Fico di Amalfi.
Sorry to resurrect an older thread, but I bought a 30ml tester of this for about £5 on a whim. I wish all my whims resulted in such success!
I really like it, it wears very softly on my skin, and...
Dior Fahrenheit Absolute.
Baie de Genievre today.
Green Irish Tweed/Green Valley mix today.
Virgin Island Water, for exactly the same reasons as some of my countrymen gave yesterday.
Neil Morris' Woodland Strawberries today.
Virgin Island Water, whilst there's still a bit of sun in Blighty.
I own TV and Oud Wood as well, but it's Champaca Absolute for me.
Neroli Sauvage today.
Bond No 9 West Broadway today.
Spice and Wood today.
CdG Calamus today. Beautiful stuff.
Opus 1870 for me, too.
Love Sartorial, BB and Endymion too.
Do I like compliments? Yes - I have an ego that likes the occassional stroke.
But I wouldn't wear anything I don't like.
Another one for Piper Nigrum, although I can't wear it without sneezing.
Czech and Speake Oxford and Cambridge.
Another one who prefers SMW here, although I like Himalaya too.
Good to see the love for Green Valley here too, you all know how much I love it, but SMW and GV are different times of the year...
Or Flatus if you don't like 'em.
The strange thing is, he reckons Habit Rouge is his best "pulling" fragrance!
Good for you, Figgis, and your son too.
I have a nephew who is 14. Whenever I'm approaching the last 25% of a bottle that I will re-purchase, I ask him if he wants it and he always does. As well...
Fico di Amalfi today.
Me too, Jon.
PdN Balle de Match.
Green Irish Valley. (2 parts GV, 1 part GIT). And jolly pleasant it is, too.
AdP Fico di Amalfi today.
Thanks guys. I will give it a few more wearings in the hope that it clicks with me.
MKK for me. Three years ago I thought it was an abomination, but I revisited it on a particularly hot and clammy evening earlier in the year and it just clicked. I can't believe how differently I...
Since I've been on BN, like many, I've done lots of sampling but to my shame, I had never tested any Hermes frags, except for TdH, which is ok, and the Jardin series that my dear old Mum wears, which...
Opus 1870 this morning. Bel Ami this evening.
Penhaligon's Sartorial today.
My experience with this organization have been ok, except that I have had to pay customs charges on the two times that I've used them. I expect shipping costs to include these charges. I won't use...
I agree. Very cheap containers indeed.
Had a splurge on Hermes today. Bought Bel Ami, Equipage and Rocabar.
Yes, I've had similar experiences with my mother and my nephew.
Mum only ever wore L'air du Temps, and only when she was going out. I told her I'd get her some samples to try but she replied "when...
Forest Rain by Kiehl's.
PdN Cedrat Intense.
On account of the fact that you can count the sunny days per annum in the UK on one hand (especially over the past couple of months) and it's as hot as Hades today, it's Virgin Island Water for me.
Comme des Garcons Calamus. Lovely stuff.
Habit Rouge EdP today.
Lutens' Santal de Mysore today.
Aramis by a long way for me.
