Iris 39 is the only one I crave for.
C&S Oxford&Cambridge is an "infamous" lavender (and oakmoss) for instance, I like also Rania J Lavende 44, lavender usage in the vintage Drakkar Noir and in Penhaligon's English Fern, Kiki Parfum...
Supremely smooth, heavenly, strictly balanced, eliotropic and refined.
Aramis Havana is still one of the 3-4 best tobacco fragrances around and one of the classiest and more virile scents of all time, with all the respect it wins 10-0 against many ridiculously...
Another great one is Hilde Soliani Bell'Antonio (a dry toasted tobacco magistrally combined with coffee, spices and earthy-aromatic notes).
Absolutely, hardly we can find around a better blended tobacco note.
Yes so many are still in production and several new (or less new) brands are going back to that "style" in the new production.
Quorum is an "evergreen", an uncompromisingly virile (affordable and versatile) stuff. Yes, try Esencia de Loewe, one of my favorite, a superior fragrance in my opinion. Anyway, If you like the note...
Of course, good references.
Hi dear, (apart longevity) fantastic fragrance.
Reminiscence Noir, Costume National Scent Intense, Bentley For Man Intense, John Varvados Vintage, Egoiste Chanel, Narciso Rodriguez for Him, Vetiver Guerlain, Marte Arte Battistoni,...
Tonight I've decided: House of Matriarch Bohemian Black.
Most worn by me: Amour de Palazzo Jul et Mad, Aramis by Aramis, Costume National Scent Intense, Cuba Czeck&Speak, Hilde Soliani Bell'Antonio, Habit Rouge Guerlain, Morabito Or Black 2014.
I'm enjoying a lot several scents from Gorilla Perfumes (Lush)....The President Hat, The Bug, Stayin' Alive. Fantastic perfumes.
I've seen it on internet for € 40 less or more....here in London you can find a full 100 bottle for about £ 45-50 I suppose. Anyway, really interesting fragrance in my humble opinion and yes, I see...
I crave for this scent.... so virile, resinous, balsamic, distinguished. I'm thinking to buy a full bottle soon.
J.P. Guerlain, Bernard Chant, Edmond Roudnitska, Corticchiato, Olivia Giacobetti, the sadly departed Laurent Bruyere, B. Duchaufour, Jaques Polge, Silvana Casoli, Christi Meshell, Roja Dove, Paolo...
Cuba Czeck&Speak, English Fern by Penhaligon's, L'Air de Rien Miller Harris, Sandalwood Cologne Geo F. Trumper, Roja Dove Musk Aoud Absolue Precieux and Royal Arms Diamond Edition Floris, for...
Incredible collection Paul, a hug.
Arabian Wood, Sahara Noir, Noir de Noir, Italian Cypress.
Royal Vintage is the one closest to Aventus I've tryed
Aramis Havana and Aramis classic, you can buy either with $ 100 and will smell like a king.
Wonderful holidays for everybody guys.
I like both (I own two little bottles as kind homage from Dubrana), both are great but Mecca Balsam is in perfect accord with my personal taste.
Jacques Zolty by Jacques Zolty ( In my humble opinion there are several points in common between this one and Interlude Man).
Yes Serge Noir, try also Donna Karan Black Cashmere, Costume National Scent Intense, Dior Homme Intense Parfum, Aramis By Aramis, Habit Rouge EdP, Patchouli Intense by Molinard, Arabian Nights by...
Vintage Ungaro III is a giant (I'm lucky to own a bottle- the last version is unfortunately less deep, more synthetic and watered down), but also the others are great, in particular I. UII is not...
Yes both great but Esencia is amazing.
Dior Hypnotic Poison
Marc Jacobs Lola
Paco Rabanne Ultraviolet Man
Davidoff Hot Water
Paco Rananne Invictus
A somewhere defined "Grandma smell" is a positive vibe in my personal olfactory vocabulary, so for instance Roccobarocco by Roccobarocco, vintage Youth Dew, Aramis JHL, Fendi Classic, V&A First,...
Black Musk cause is lunar and moonshiny as the Tokyo's night in the Haruki Murakami's romances (1Q84 for instance).
Immediately later Black Aoud and Aoud Cuir d'Arabie cause are bold.
Faconnable by Faconnable, one of the most minty ever. Unfortunately really hard to find.
Kiori by Kiori is a perfect dark accord of vanilla, aromatic resins, realistic patchouli and sharp floral notes (rose/geranium I suppose). It seems (at least at the beginning) to be dealing with a...
I see much more a reference to Chanel Cuir de Russie than to a more stout leather a la Knize Ten. Anyway Dior Cuir Cannage is a classic amber leather so white, floral, delicate and chypre in...
Lanvin L'Homme, Dior Homme Intense, Creed GIT, Pure Malt.
A virile "fluidy-piquant" urban-fancy oudh.
L'Erbolario is a dignified cheap italian "Herbalist's shop-like" brand, I highly recommend Magnolia, Eaux de Veriver de la Reunion, Lavender, Hedera, Imperial Eau de Cologne. Looking forward to test...
Mecca Balsam, Hindu Kush, Patchouly (not listed yet on Basenotes), Muschio di Quercia, Legno di Nave, Castoreum, Don Corleone , Milano Caffè, Venezia Giardini Segreti and Sharif are probably my...
For instance, according with my personal idea of yellow-clean freshness (may be soapy, may be spicy or talky-eliotropic), good choices would be Casamorati Fiero Xerjoff, Taormine by Keiko Mecheri,...
For instance Eau d'Italie Bois d'Ombrie, Athunis Sigilli, Private Label Jovoy, Vintage Etro Vetiver, Jacomo de Jacomo, Mona di Orio Vetyver, Slumberhouse Norne and Vikt, Xeryus Givenchy, Enrico...
L'Artisan Al Oudh is effectively an excellent choice, try also the vintage Habit Rouge Edp, I like also Serge Noir which in my opinion features a touch of (not listed) synthetic oudh.
Polo Green vintage and Safari.
Still Aramis Havana.
For instance my last purchase, the great immeasurable Aramis by Aramis.
Soooo, great, He seems an humble and caring person too, yes nice story and a wonderful experience for you hednic. Thank you for sharing.
Class and " Beauty". :-)
Agree with Drseid, as always.
The coffee is there but not in a dominant way.
Habit Rouge, Aramis Havana.
1) Dior Homme
2) Cool Water
The note of saffron is often connected to oudh (Montale, Mancera, Memo, Cale', Neela Vermeire, Histoires de Parfums etc), I detect also the presence of Saffron in several O'driu' scent for instance...
Gold Rose Oudh by Tiziana Terenzi is fantastic, than Vintage Ungaro III, Alain Delon Iquitos, Rose de Taif Perris Montecarlo, Lyric Man Amouage, Black Aoud Montale, La Perla by La Perla (good also...
Tested last day at London Stansted Airport, well the Pasha Noir Edition is an aromatic (new generation, unfortunately) fougere which effectively possesses the herbal Pasha's background but it is...
Helmut Lang EdC for Men is an amazing fragrance which combines a multifaceted powdery-laundry, heliotropic and vaguely earthy (in a typical Etro's style) chypre neo classic approach with a brand's...
Azzaro Pour Homme for instance.
I would add Hilde Soliani Bell'Antonio.
Overall thanks to my friend drseid, you know well how much appreciate your compliments, thank you my lovely Foustie. Well, about the connection I see between Rose de Taif and 88 I wanted to mean (but...
Rose de Taif
What a great piece of dry vegetal bold musky rose! Rose de Taif if for sure the fragrance from the Perris Montecarlo line that I prefer, the one really distinguished and highly...
Usually the Zegna's are mediocre creations (common and pale), I have to say anyway that Haitian Vetiver and Italian Bergamot are interesting (in the synthetic range of course, we are far from a...
Cerchi Nell'Acqua Jolie opens with a delicate chypre accord more than vaguely aristocratic and art deco. A first spray on skin and immediately a flashback, I detect indeed for a while a sort of more...
So many, eventually:
Esencia de Loewe
Domenico Caraceni 1913
N 88 C&S
Vintage Ungaro III
House of Matriarch, Maria Candida Gentile, Hilde Soliani, Tiziana Terenzi, Jul et Mad, Abdul Samad Al Qurashi, La Via del Profumo, Neela Vermeire, Ulrich Lang, Nu_be, Andrea Maack, Sonoma Scent...
Several are for instance Maria Candida Gentile, House of Matriarch, La Via del Profumo, Hilde Soliani, Tiziana Terenzi, Parfumerie Generale, Odori di Firenze, Parfums de Nicolai, Neil Morris, O'...
Probably my absolute favorite is still Norma Kamali Incense.
The following fragrances are great take on the incense theme:
La Via del Profumo Balsamo della Mecca
Vis et Honor by O'driu'...
The most missed is the unfortunately discontinued IL. So many following modern fragrances have been inspired and influenced by IL.
Apart the "usual suspects" I frankly quite enjoy on myself Feminite du Bois despite labelled uncompromisingly feminine.
Thank you so much, great work.
Usually months but it happens to make an instant purchase sometimes.
Habit Rouge Guerlain, Aramis Havana, Costume National Scent Intense.
Same feeling for me.
Yes in my humble experience Egoiste is one of the most beloved by women for sure.
Ambre Noir, Ispahan and Comme Une Evidence Homme are decent creations.
Excellent leather powerhouse.
Of course, on my skin Alyssa Ashley Essence de Patchouli is for instance absolutely identical to Perris Montecarlo Essence de Patchouli. It seems the brands are connected.
Yes, Villoresi of course.
Well, your can have dozens of alternatives, I will never be tired to recommend several brands as Maria Candida Gentile (Cinabre, Exultat, Finisterre are stunning), Bruno Acampora, Tiziana Terenzi,...
Of course I underline all, just add the brand offers a huge range of diverse concoctions, several of which are lighter and far more wearable (think to Tabac, Acqua di Angelica, Fiore della Notte,...
Yes I know Jolie as well as all the fragrances of this wonderful italian niche brand mastered by the supertalented Master Perfumer Enrico Buccella. I recommend all the fragrances of the brand ( White...
Yes, this, apart the absurd price.
Micallef Royal Vintage.
Muscs Koublai Khan
Feminite du Bois
Fille en Aiguilles
Among the "designers" Aramis Havana is still my N. 1, than I love effectively Equipage, Michael for Men, Gianfranco Ferre for Man (I detect tobacco in here), Guerlain Vetiver, Shiseido Basala (don't...
P.S: longevity is stout on my skin.
It seems Bogue MAAI has caught up a sort of mythical-cult status here on Basenotes (actually not just here) and it finally rendered me so curious to the point of swinging me in to...
Salvatore Ferragamo Pour Homme.
Leather Oud, Patchouli Imperial.
My review about Caoba (my first approach with Fueguia):
I don't know what to think about this fragrance, really, just know that I like it. Shocking citric/herbal/rooty/spicy/tobacco aromatic...
Nightscape is really a wonderful scent, I love it. Another summer patchouli could be La Martina Quero. Also Mistral Patchouli is interesting.
Lavandula, Violetta, Gardenia, Castile are "light choices" (despite not my favorite).
Daimiris for instance is an interesting scent.
Thank you so much iodine.
I own it, utterly fecal, pure and animalic, just to be cleverly combined with further elements, I appreciate it on me but the aroused effect around is just real abashment.
So nice my lovely Foustie :-)
