Nice description pigeon.
Thanks for taking time out to share your views on this fragrance. Really appreciate it.
Will let you have my observations on the fragrance when it arrives.
I was really looking...
I've gone for it blind.
I'm an optimistic guy. I'm expecting to be impressed with this fragrance.
Ok awesome guys thanks so much for the comments.
Sounds like something I should definitely try!
However, as some of you have pointed out, it is fairly affordable so I could just hedge my bets...
How highly do you guys rate this fragrance?
Thinking about getting a blind buy!
Looking for another masculine, sexy winter fragrance with good longevity (although not cloying), which I can...
Ok cheers Levente, I will look your review up!
Ok, sign me up....I am now officially declaring myself part of the "Chanel Antaeus fan club" on Basenotes. You guys have another member.
What an uber-masculine and incredibly sexy fragrance! I...
Ok gentlemen, here is my top 5 in no particular order: -
1) YSL Kouros
2) YSL Rive Gauche
3) Creed BdP
4) Chanel Antaeus
5) Old Spice
Honourable mention to Caron Yatagan.
what would be your three?
Your top 3
Got a feeling its going to be neck and neck between the two big hitters Antaeus and L'Egoiste!
Cast your vote!
Rive Gauche PH
Thanks for all your comments so far.
Guys do you recommend this scent?
How long does the lavender stay with you? Is the lavender note quite persistent?
Is it linear or does it evolve?
Does it elicit many compliments?
Thanks for the replies so far guys. Keep them coming!
Have been thinking recently about a sneaky purchase of SL Gris Clair but you guys have definitely given me some other options to weigh up.
Guys what are your all time favourite lavender fragrances?
(1) Rive Gauche PH
(2) YSL Kouros
I don't know what it is about these two particular fragrances but women absolutely seem to love the smell!
How would you sum up this frangrance?
What are the best occasions to where it?
Ever received any compliments from wearing it/what kind of comments does this fragrance elicit...
Mine is Kouros
what about BdP in the office?
What do you guys think?
That you have never owned.
What would you go for?
List your top three fragrances for each scenario: -
(1) Best daytime
(2) Best evening
(3) Most masculine
(4) Biggest compliment getters
Which fragrances do you regard as not getting the deserved praise or enough worthy mention (or indeed any mention at all) here on Basenotes?
Many thanks for your responses.
My mistake, it must have been 75ml for £85.00. I am based in Tunbridge Wells in the UK and the department store was Fenwicks.
I will check out...
That ships to the UK. The only place I can find that stocks it close to me is selling 50ml for £85 ($160). Obviously this is a bit expensive and I would prefer to pay US prices and ship to the UK...
Thanks for your responses.
Fumerie Turque certainly seems to be flavour of the month here!
Of these two fragrances, which do you prefer and why.
Haha! Thanks! (I am male) ;)
(1) Gris Clair
(3) Rive Gauche Pour Homme
(4) Musc Ravageur
(5) Voleur de Roses
Oh and I just thought I would mention
Fumerie Turque >>>>>>>>>>>>>> Chergui !
Top 5 Serge Lutens for men IMO: -
(1) Fumerie Turque
(3) Gris Clair
(4) Amber Sultan
(5) Daim Blond
What a diverse selection!
If a fragrance could be "dark and evil" which would be the darkest?
(Suspend your disbelief!) :0)
I still can't decide which one to go for: MKK or FT.
Either way, I am going to be buying blind!
Anyone else have a view?
Does anyone here have experience with a particular fragrance(s) that brings on a headache because, for me, M7 Fresh is particularly headache inducing!
That nothing else ever comes CLOSE.
(*Mods: have tried using the search facility here for similiar threads but have obviously been blind or useless or both and not found any substantive threads on the subject - please post the...
I am going to break with convention and say M7 Fresh.
There are issues with longevity, however.
Apologies if this has been a thread on this recently (and I sure there probably has been) but what would you guys say is the most masculine rose scent?
Voleur de Roses?
It will be interesting...
Guys, I already own a smokey/sweet scent as in Tea for Two. I have read so many good reviews of Fumerie Turque on here, which I understand is broadly also a smokey/sweet scent.
My question is,...
Any that you guys can think of?
Is it Creed BdP or YSL Kouros?
I need to know! :)
you guys have tried?
Please don't say M7 Fresh!
Lol no votes at all for Kouros Eau D’Ete.
Is it really that ordinary?
Vote for your top 3.
"lying with your lover by an open fire" kind of scent?
Hmmm, interesting. Thanks for the feedback.
By the way, found a beautiful review of FT, attached hereto below:-
Fumerie Turque must be the scent that pervades Eugène...
Thanks for your replies guys.
Seems that FT wins hands down.
Would it be correct to say that FT is a lot more complex frag than T4T?
Which is the superior smoky/sweet scent out of these two heavyweights?
What is the reason for Europe having superior frangrance houses to that of the the United States?
Xen have edited my post. As you say, it wasn't that clear.
What are considered to be the really RARE frags?
Haha. Thanks everyone for the feedback. BdP it is!! :D
Thanks. That was really helpful.
Guys (and girls) thanks for the replies so far. Your comments on MKK are laugh out loud funny! *;D
Indeed this is the most random poll of fragrances ever! I suppose I am looking for a general all...
please and thanks. *:D
I can vouch for the two I own: TfT and VdR - last ages on me. 8+ hours
I really would love to sample Egoiste.
It is no longer commercially available in the UK.
I have heard it said before, however, that Egoiste is more appropriate for the 40+ crowd?
that doesn't elicit any "old man" comments?
Do you guys know what I mean? Some of the classy scents that immediatelty spring to mind (i.e. BdP or Rive Gauche PH) can sometimes appear a bit old...
I'll add it to the list!
This is by far my favourite summer scent.
I have to add that all I get with this scent is compliments, compliments, compliments. 8-)
Definitely the softest and most wearable Serge Lutens and...
I see some of you are trying to dethrone The King :D
For me Kouros is the best fragrance of all time - but then that is another thread altogether.
Worst fragrance of all time? Could not say.
There is nothing particularly distinctive about this scent and it does not last more than an hour.
Any other dissenters?
VdR - the perfect rain scent
Join the club MM!
SixCats you are a man of IMPECCABLE taste! ;)
Just interested to see who the Kouros hardcore following is here.
1) Kouros - I am so grateful to this community for talking so much about this fragrance (good and bad) that I had to go and see what all the
fuss was about, because I absolutely love it....
Haha Stuigi - I was wearing YSL Kouros. She loved it! 8-)
Let's keep this regularly updated of your recent compliments and the fragrance you were wearing when you were complimented.
Today (1st June 2006) I was wearing Kouros and was told that I smelt...
I have a sample of this.
Would I be going too far if I was to say that this is one of the sexiest scents ever?
Thanks for the replies.
I take it that MKK is not a fragrance one would wear to work then? :D
In your collection.
Today I must have received literally about 5 minutes worth of compliments about how much this particular fragrance I was wearing was making her feel very "sexual" (sorry to lower the tone but on a...
Yeah, you nailed it. I think that sums it up for me.
Does anyone else here find that their designer frags garnish more compliments than their expensive niche frags?
I also find Kouros to be quite unique actually.
I know this is a HUGE favourite here but is there anyone else here who is not a massive fan?
I personally find it to be a bit too sweet, femine and linear to be a top contender for me.
I haven't tried all the other Kouros variants but I wouldn't be surprised if none of them had the "X" factor of the original.
I certainly know that Body Kouros doesn't. It is officially the most...
Dammit you guys are lucky that you do not live in the most expensive place in the World, the UK.
We have to pay about £45 for M7 Fresh here which translates to US$100+
For winter's rains and ruins are over,
And all the season of snows and sins;
The days dividing lover and lover,
The light that loses, the night that wins;
And time remembered is grief forgotten,...
Rive Gauche PH or A*Men
I know that it depends a lot on skin chemistry.
That notwithstanding, I have seen a lot of people mention here that Dzing! does not last, which having
sampled it previously, I agree with.
a light spray of Rive Gauche IMO
Voleur de Roses
I love the descriptions of VdR in the directory from Messrs tigrushka, AZSmells and Jeff H :-
"Voleur de Roses...takes me to a leisurely bare-foot walk in a charmingly unkempt...
2. Rive Gauche PH
3. Bois du Portugal
These two sound quite similar on paper. What is the major difference between them?
If you had to choose which one would you say you prefer?
