It was so awful. She can't sing live
STH. Though i hardly wear it anymore.
Kobe. All week
How are you supposed to smell C for Men when the room was already pretty much filled with C for Women? Beautiful room, beautiful host/presenter but still kind of a weird way of presenting a fragrance...
I just noticed the shooting stars line is now $265 on Luckyscent.com :vrolijk_26:
good to see this line coming to a more...
I finally bought:
and also a 15ml bottle of Dhofar
Yes, I've ordered from them before and had no issues. They are a small shop in Delray Beach, FL. I keep meaning to go check them out in person one of these days as they are less than an hour away...
Best price Ive seen is from FourSeasonsProducts.com using their 20% off discount code ( LOVE ) which should bring the price down to just over $200. Still costly but I hope that helps to soothe the...
What he said.
To the original poster: Lots of people have contacted Creed directly concerning variations in their batches. The only answer I have seen, and perhaps someone will come forward with other information,...
If I remember correctly I'm the one who bought your bottle. I too sold it off not long after. I kept a small decant of which I still have most of it.
It was just so non-remarkable to me. I liked...
Agreed, Dia is one of the best from this house for sure! Subtle but persistent, lasts all day on me.
SOTD: Creed - Green Valley
SOTE: Le Labo - Vanille 44
My guess (and I could be totally wrong) is that it's Givaudan Oud Opur and cypriol oil.
good luck with that.
Brrr, Its a little shilly in here.
Thanks, that is not me. Im more of a behind the camera kind of guy lol. It's a friend of mine I did some head shots for. We used some of my stuff (i.e. headphones and glasses, etc).
Nikon D700, ...
Ok, so these are one of the frames I'm currently into. Chrome Hearts - Straight Up 1. I got them last year and i've bought two other ones since. I have issues lol
Nice frames, Hedonist. My favorite lines are at the moment are Oliver Peoples & Chrome Hearts. I'll post some photos when I have time to take a few.
Although not my favorite, Black Violet doesn't register as feminine to my nose.
You can always try it but it doesn't sound like a good combo to me. Why not just wear Tuscan Leather by itself.
Creed - Green Valley today
we are back to our regular temps down here (80s) so.....
CREED - Windsor
Sorry to hear about this. With ebay/paypal you do have some recourse. If you contact eBay/Paypal and let them know that you received counterfeit products and they will more than likely side in your...
I know what you mean. i get the urge periodically. I seem to purge and then before you know it I've bought new frags.
double post, sorry
Wow, for a luxe brand I would have at least expected a reply, a 'thank you for the information" would have sufficed. A sample or two to offset the lost ml's wouldn't have hurt and would have gone a...
There hasn't been much buzz about these. I'd check out #12 (incense) and #13 (leather). The iris one was nice but too fleeting.
Also the prices don't shock me as much as they did originally. I...
Thanks, I have champagne tastes and a Ritz cola budget lol
Congrats! The top notes are just amazing. I recently picked up a 75ml bottle in the marketplace.
I like it but I can't smell it after 1 hour which is unusual for me. I really can't justify the purchase. The SA gave me some extra carded Royal Oud samples. They have your name on it.
Unfortunately I have many. Photography, I DJ, I collect vinyl, sound and light gear, sunglasses, silver biker jewelry. And I just transitioned and made photography my career.
and I have to force...
Today I wore:
perfect for the 55 degree weather we are having.
Saks Dadeland had that promotion on the 30th. It was a last minute thing and I got a txt from my SA there the same day. I almost wasn't able to make it... Almost.
My local Creed Counter had a promotion, bring in an empty Creed Atomizer and they would fill it with any fragrance of my choice. No purchase necessary. I had a red one that i originally had intended...
Creed - Royal Oud for a cold evening in Miami.
Congrats! its a really special scent. I don't wear BO often but when i do i prefer it over the edp.
Whoa! Why would they do that?
more than likely it will be Kobe.
Le Labo - Vanille 44
Nice upcoming purchases everyone.
My next purchase is going to be a flacon of Windsor 09 that a Creed SA tracked down for me. Then when my wallet recovers I see a bottle Xerjoff Kobe and a...
It lasts quite well on me. About 7 hours or so, but it has quite bit of iso e super if my nose does not deceive me. and that could trigger olfactory fatigue.
My pet peeves is the "I'm sorry that has been discontinued" when you know that it hasn't. But then again i don't shop much with SA's like are like that.
Xerjoff - NIO from a sample
I don't find them anything alike and I wouldn't hesitate to to have both in the same wardrobe.
I got myself a bottle of Vanille 44 and restocked my supplies with almost 50ml of Windsor (first batch).
You're killing me but I'm oh so tempted.
I couldn't help it, i tried to resist but the lure was too strong.
I just ordered a bottle of Le Labo's Vanille 44 from Luckyscent before November is over and so are their city exclusives. I...
Congrats on the sale.
My guess is that the other seller is a Basenoter as well.
Good Lord!... I'll wait until they have the refills available, if ever.
SOTD: Creed - Royal Oud
I didn't care for Montales Original Oud but going by your description I must try Kilians Extreme Oud. I really liked Pure Oud so I can only imagine Im gonna love Extreme Oud.
Welcome to Basenotes. Sorry you're having that issue
I am not sure what it is but I would try spraying on my shirt or some other piece of clothing. It should solve that problem and also make the...
Compared to oud oils its not even close. If you're after the real deal oils are the way to go. But compared to other oud scents its not bad at all. The closest thing to it is Montales Original Oud...
I get 6-8 hours but other people have told me that they could still smell it on me even in the 10-12 hour range.
Vivace does sound nice.
They must really like purple over at Xerjoff. I had Dhofar in the presentation box and the box was purple. I don't get it.
$116 for 15ml of Vanille 44. *Sigh*
Santal 33 for me as well.
It's fantastic. I've been wearing it most of this past week. Looks like I'll be ordering a bottle of this soon.
My SOTD is Santal 33 by Le Labo
I was very surprised by this one. The sandalwood, cedar, papyrus combo is just spectacular. I can't stop smelling myself.
Wow, so in a split it will be only $340 for 50ml.
or $6.80 per ml.
Fueille Verte is my SOTD. I wish I had an '06 sample to compare.
I finally tried this one over the weekend. It reminds me of L'Artisan's Tea for Two.
$300 for 75ml? Thanks but I'll pass. They gave me a sample so I'll give it another wearing but at this point...
To me it always reminds me of Bleecker Street with those Violet aroma chemicals.
No they are not the same. Harrods Limited Edition comes in a green bottle with graphic/crystals of the front of Harrords.
im sooo tempted. thanks for the info.
Pure Oud - By Kilian
Creed has made some changes to the boxes over the years. I believe the one listed for $136 is the older box if I'm not mistaken, at least it matches the one I have.
Usually just one for me. Sometimes two if I go out that night
Yup, like Hedinc said. as far as I know there is only one concentration. Looks like they messed up.
Unless it's changed I am pretty sure that they will ship the exclusives to you. At least thats how I got the ones I have a few years ago.
SOTD: Pure Oud - by Kilian
And lots of it. Watch out world!
Like Hednic, the closest thing I've smelled is Montale's de Mysore. Unfortunately it's very pricey probably more so than the real thing.
Almay is my preferred deodorant. it is scentless.
They are not! Thank heavens. Oud 27 has a very fecal opening. I love the woody dry down but I can't get past the top notes.
Some other oud centric fragrances to try are:
Bond no 9 - Harrods...
Chances are that the bottle you purchased off of eBay is fine. When I use NP I usually can't smell it on myself after only a few hours but I know that it's there cause other people can smell it on...
Wow, it is gone from the website. What a shame, that is one of the best bonds. But i'll pass for $625.
You can get a non-blinged out bottle on their website for $300 or so.
I guess if anything is to be learned is that no matter how descriptive a review of a fragrance is it still cannot compare to actually smelling it. Blind buys are risky. Decants and samples will save...
Derby (vintage formulation)
It reminded me a bit of Amouage Silver.
Yeah I dont see any similarities between them. HOT's opening should be cinnamon and dry down to leather if I remember correctly.
On a side note I FINALLY have Harrods Limited edition Oud in my...
Silver is one of my favorites as well. You may be getting put off by the civet in it.
You may want to take a look and maybe ask in the oud group. Lots of information and knowledgable people there that may not see this forum.
Contact TF through their website. Ask nicely. TF is very accommodating with samples.
Couldn't one just call the store and have it shipped directly to you. Im pretty sure that even with shipping it would be cheaper than that auction.
Azure lime's longevity is deceptive because it can seem to last for only 30 minutes or so but it in fact lasts all day. Something about the musk may block our olfactory receptors but I've have others...
And while you're at the Montale Paris boutique you may want to try some of their Confidential Collection. Particularly Santal de Mysore. They are prohibitively expensive but definite must try for a...
Ouch! Particularly the decanter. At those prices there doesn't seem to be much of a incentive to biggie size it. The notes do sound interesting though.
congrats! good to hear that they made good.
Im glad someone else backed me up on this. After a while we get used to the smells around us (including ourselves) and can not detect it. This happens with all fragrances smells etc. We have evolved...
Probably not. I think the reason for this is marketing. Some people just want to pay more for something. It originally was meant to be available for a limited time and possibly a stepping stone to...
Yes, so much that even the vendor is obviously confused. You may have to educate them.
Thanks for the pic and the information D! Also glad to hear that the juice is good.
Not feeling the new bottles at all
Like Kevin pointed out they re-used the Maitre bottles and just added a...
It really varies with application, temperatures and skin types but MI should last most of the day. The base is what really persists. The tops gone in two hours or less and the middle notes are gone...
Extreme was one of my first purchases after finding Basenotes. Ive since gone through phases where I dont wear it much but I always seem to come back to it when the weather allows. I cant wear when...
But yet they re-released Windsor about a year or so after it came out. Wasnt Winsdor a "limited" release as well?
