I admit that I've never ever tried anything from Burberry. The brand just never seemed that interesting.

I'm with cacio on this, I wouldn't consider Dior Homme Parfum as a 'leather' fragrance to suit your preference for creamy leather. While the leather is noticeable, it is a background note.
Thanks for the info AntonPan.
Interesting price point - 250 euro in Russia converts to about $380 Aussie dollars; which is more expensive than the widely available gold top 1001 night Prive's and...
Me too! :grin:
From the Whale & the Rose website://www.thewhaleandtherose.com/perfume-o-pedia/armani-prive-vert-malachite/
The notes for Vert Malachite appear to be: Benzoin, BitterOrange, Lily, Petitgrain, Pink...
Excluding 1 Million which I don't own and have never worn, most on your list garner some compliments when I wear them. Curiously though Aventus has probably received the least. Other contenders in my...
Ermenegildo Zegna Essenze Mediterranean Neroli
Ermenegildo Zegna Essenze Mediterranean Neroli. Bought a full bottle on the spot. Gorgeous!
I've narrowed it down to either Armani Privé Sable Fumé or Armani Privé Sable Or. It will depend on the weather on the day. If it's cooler I'll go with Sable Or. If it's hotter I'll go with Sable...
Rive Gauche Pour Homme for me too. It's been my absolute favourite fragrance since I first had the pleasure to smell it. One of a kind and nothing really comes close to being as perfect as Rive...
It's a shame you didn't like it.
As a big fan of YSL's L'Homme Parfum Intense I'd still love to check this one out if it ever makes it to Australia.
Thanks for the heads up AntonPan. I really hope this makes it to Australia.
My pleasure MELVCMS01! Glad you found the pictures too. As soon as I know these are available, I'll be putting my name down for a bottle of each.
I voted for the original but a close second for me would be Sport Eau Extreme.
I've tried this and I'm very glad to have a bottle of this. Although I have and love Italian Bergamot and there is a definite resemblance between the two, both are worth having. Although it's an EDT...
I own and love Leather Blend and find it quite unique for a leather fragrance. Nevertheless I'm a bit disappointed in this release announcement. I was kind of hoping that the 'Blend' series would...
Me too. I love both but Profumo just beats Essenza.
La Nuit de L'Homme L'Intense & Chanel Pour Monsieur Eau De Parfum.
Thankfully my regrets are few, but the following are memorable:
1. Bentley for men Intense - I just couldn't like this one no matter how hard I tried.
2. FCUK Him - an atrocious medicinal blast...
Both perform very well for me. I concur with the other posters that Cuir Amethyst tends to have the better longevity.
I had a chat to my Armani Rep and she informed me that when the original line of Armani Prive' was released, they only came in 50ml bottles that sat inside of a black wooden container. Armani used to...
JON RODGERS's it was seriously difficult to pick any stinkers from such a vast wardrobe! In the end I could only pick one I didn't like and that is Body Kouros.
Armani Privé Sable Fumé & Armani Privé Sable Or
I voted for Coromandel. Jersey would be my very close second choice.
I currently have 4 large 125ml backup bottles of Rive Gauche Pour Homme in the tin can and 2 60ml back up bottles of Rive Gauche Pour Homme Intense. Although it may seem ridiculous to have so many...
Although I selected Man from your list as I do really like it, I actually rather prefer many of Bvlgari's other offerrings. Eau the Vert Extreme is probably the best Bvlgari overall (I'm on my third...
Sorry that link was meant to be www.cityperfume.com.au
I got my bottle at city perfume.com.au
I was quite surprised with this one too. Not at all what I expected but very nice.
I'm also loving Davidoff Leather Blend. It's almost a perfect leather; not too animalistic but still a decent...
Davidoff Leather Blend
Les Exclusifs de Chanel Jersey
Christian Dior La Collection Privée Ambre Nuit
I can't say for certain (as it was at least 25+ years ago) but I would guess either Kouros or Sport de Paco Rabanne; both of which I can remember buying with my own money shortly after starting my...
Chanel Les Exclusifs Coromandel & Sycomore
Hi Tha_Doggg, so far I'm loving Terre D'Hermes Eau Tres Fraiche. It has the truest grapefruit up front that I think I've ever come across. It also seems to have excellent longevity which is a bit...
A back-up bottle of Armani Prive Les Editions Couture Nacre (the second last bottle left in Australia I believe) and Emporio Armani Diamonds for men Summer Edition.
Emporio Armani Diamonds, Terre D'Hermes Eau Tres Fraiche, and a backup bottle of Givenchy Insense Ultramarine (now discontinued).
Musc Ravageur (oh what a beauty!), Armani Code Ice, a back up bottle of Armani Prive Eau de Jade, and I was gifted a 30ml bottle of Penhaligon's Blenheim Bouquet. Not a bad haul if I do say so...
I own all 3 and I agree with the consensus that the differences are quite minimal. The original is still my favourite but I do reach for the other two on occasion. The light and the original are...
Dior Homme Parfum and Bleu de Chanel Parfum
Count me in. I'll be heading to the Sydney store on the weekend to check if or when they will have it.
Perfume Calligraphy Rose by Aramis.
Me too. Rive Gauche Pour Homme is far and away the scent I reach for more than any other.
Thanks. I'm particularly enjoying the Encens Satin. I was lucky to get the Ombre & Lumiere in Sydney Australia as apparently the whole city only got 3 bottles and the whole country only got 15...
Armani Prive Encens Satin, Armani Privé Ombre & Lumiere & Azzaro Club Men. I also recently received in the post a vintage bottle of Hermes Equipage and a bottle of Lalique Hommage. Both the...
Another comment I would add is that in my personal experience the sillage and longevity were very good. I have worn Fahrenheit Parfum to work on several occasions and the sillage was quite...
I'm definitely in the thumbs up camp on this one. Ken_Russell sums it up nicely as being richer and more complex than the original.
I would imagine that if there is any disappointment with this,...
I paid AUS$56 for a 100ml bottle. Retail price in Australia is well over $120.
Comme des Garcons 2 Man
The best laid plans ...... I actually just bought Man 2 Comme des Garcons as I got a real bargain for it.
Me too. I also plan on purchasing Armani Prive Encens Satin and Ombre & Lumiere.
Me too! Mirto is my favourite.
1. Amber scent - Armani Prive' Ambre Orient
2. Vanilla scent - L`Artisan Havana Vanille
3. Oud scent - Armani Prive' Oud Royal
4. Leather scent - Knize 10
5. Gourmand scent - Mugler Pure...
Another + for AdG Essenza. I also prefer all of Fahrenheit's flankers over the original; which just doesn't work on my skin. I would also add to that Pure Malt, Pure Havane, Ice Men & B Men over A...
Sorry :o) when the op wrote "Great Smell / Bad Performance. Who WIN? " I thought the op was asking to judge based on the criteria of smell and performance. Regardless, I'd still pick Code.
I'd have to go with Code due to The One's abysmal performance on my skin!
The most I have spent so far was on a bottle of Armani Prive Nuances (AUS) $650. Worth every scent!
Armani Privé Eclat de Jasmin (which I bought last week and arrived today)
and Rasikh Syed Junaid Alam (which I also bought last...
I own and love full bottles of almost the entire line; with the exception of Eclat de Jasmin, Ambre Soie, and Oranger Alhambra (although I do have samples of each). The absolute standouts for me...
I have a bottle of YSL Kouros Eau de Sport (1986).
My favourite from the Armani Prive 'Eau' collection. In fact I recently got a back up bottle as the Armani Sales Rep in the Sydney store informed me it was being discontinued. That was about six...
Designer: Rive Gauche Pour Homme
Niche: Interlude Man
Underrated: Moschino Uomo?
Rive Gauche Pour Homme in the tin for me. I really do like the Mugler, but nowhere near as much as I love RGPH.
I went with Avignon in first place with Zagorsk a close second.
Zegna Essenze Haitian Vetiver
Just went and bought the Haitian Vetiver to add to the whole collection. It really is very nice and reminds me most of Dior's exclusive Vetiver in that it's quite linear and really smells almost the...
+ 1 on Javanese Patchouli from Zegna's Essenza Collection. Also from your list I voted for Serge Lutens - Bornéo 1834.
I'm quite a fan of this line and have the following from your list:
Insense, Ultramarine, Ultramarine Blue Laser, Ultramarine Ice Cube, Ultramarine Wild Surf, Ultramarine Ocean Spirits Atlantic,...
Unfortunately both project very little and neither lasts long on my skin at all; maybe an hour tops.
Rive Gauche Pour Homme without a doubt.
This is one of my most favourite recent FB purchases. It's deep, rich, smoky and slightly bitter and although I don't have that many myrrh centric fragrances, I understand that is exactly what myrrh...
Another vote for Armani Privé - Oud Royal & I'm really loving Zegna's Indonesian Oud.
I chose L'Artisan, but I only have the Extreme version and haven't tried the original. I also love Dune pour homme and wear it often.
A great one that you missed is Mark Jacobs Fig Splash.
From this list I selected Bvlgari Eau Parfumée au Thé Vert, but I was actually meaning the Extreme version. Although I like GPH II, it only lasts about an hour on my skin, so with such major...
my (very well kept) 30ml, 50ml, &100ml bottles are safe and secure from the ravages of time! But seriously, this was once a stand-out great juice from a fragrance house that has long since given up...
Agreed. Although I do own both, I prefer the richness of the EDP.
Rive Gauche Pour Homme (original tin can)
Summer Fizz, Frozen, Freeze Me, Deep, Game, Summer Dive & Sea, Scents & Sun. My least favourite would be Cool Water Deep (very, very weak & smells like pine disenfectant) and my favourite would be...
My pleasure :happy:
FYI, off topic I just received an e-mail invitation from the Sydney Zegna store to attend the launch of their new Uomo fragrance line next week. Although I have read several...
Not paticularly old, but still fairly rare nowadays are almost full and original bottles of Givenchy Insense (1993), Davidoff Original (1984), Davidoff Relax (1990), Kouros Eau de Sport (1986),...
Actually I was surprised how dominant the rose is in this. It's not so much in the top notes but quite noticeable as the fragrance settles; at least on my skin.
I'm still testing this so I hope...
OK, so I went and tested the whole Essenze collection today and walked out having bought a bottle of Indonesian Oud.
I haven't had time to fully digest Indonesian Oud or the others, but I'll give...
In no particular order:
Azzaro pour Homme Elixir, Essenza di Zegna, Givenchy pour homme, L'Essense de Cerutti, Chopard Noble Cedar, Perry Ellis Platinum Label, Python Uomo, Kenneth Cole RSVP,...
I'll make sure I'm wearing my suit when I go to the Sydney Zegna store to test! :cheesy:
In response to my further recent enquiry to the Sydney Zegna store (who previously denied all knowledge of the new Essenze line), I received the following reply:
"Thank you for your enquiry.
Thanks. I was pretty stoked too :thumbsup:
Out of the whole Armani Prive collection I liked most of them, but really loved maybe 4 or 5, including Cedre Olympe. The other one I almost bought was...
Armani Prive Cuir Amethyste (wonderful & very longlasting leather), Armani Privé Oud Royal (really warm and actually smells like oud!) & Robert Piguet Bois Noir (gorgeous drydown).
Kenneth Cole Signature.
Zino Davidoff (but not on the street, on a train as I was getting off).
I don't mind this one at all, but I don't reach for it too often. It reminds me a bit of Hypnose Homme but lighter.
[QUOTE=del;2912274]I find AHS and AHS Eau Extreme totally different. The former is sharper, and the latter is balmy/sweeter. Eau Extreme has a lasting power, with very good projection on my skin, and...
Although I own and love both, for overall scent it has to be the Dior Homme.
I walked into the Zegna Sydney store last week and they hadn't even heard of these! I don't know if they will even make it down under :sad:
Chopard Noble Cedar.
Tough to pick, but I'd have to go with Essenza. I also love Blue Mediterraneo - Mirto di Panarea.
mlsweeney I'll swipe your Philosykos.
+ 1. Although I really like the smell, MI just isn't worth the price.
I've recently come to really embrace Essenza. IMHO it is the better scent. I don't find it cloying or too strong.
