Nicole Miller works for me.
If you want apple pie / turnover, Hermes Ambre Narguile.
Consulting with my comprehensive spreadsheet of what I own (fellow nerds understand), I believe the following are noteworthy along the lines of the OP/Ambre 114's (2001) stellar review performance...
Not familiar with Dark Aoud but you might find what you're looking for in Xerjoff Najaf.
I've got 62 bottles in the collection from the 80's and consider 24 of them either 4/5 stars. Yesterday it was Ho Hang Club; the day before, Bijan for Men. Today, Davidoff "84.
Disco? It was...
By the time I'd got around to testing CM I'd already bought K10 and Gomma. The perceived similarities were such that CM was not a pursuit.
I'll add Caron - Tabac Blond, Pascal Morabito - Or...

...it's Yatagan again.
Boozy fruit. A fine autumn fragrance. Blind bought the 65ml bottle.
The first time I smelled it I thought "This IS LeDandy". So, I did a side-by-side with Le Dandy (100ml, silver cap) and...
Thanks for the link ms. anya.
At the risk of derailing this thread just a tiny bit... may I make a request of you, ms. anya, to post a thread updating or communicating the status/success etc. of...
Dior Homme, of course, and I like the way that Divine - L'Homme de Coeur Divine provides an iris perception as well.

For my barnyardy taste, Xerjoff - Zafar hovers above the rest.
Down a level comes: By Kilian - Pure Oud, L'Artisan - Al Oudh, Dior - Leather Oud, Le Labo -...
Such a classification scheme has nothing to do with the juice inside the bottle and it therefore means nothing to me. Hell, there have even been enough disagreements about whether a given fragrance...
My understanding is that our skin is a pretty powerful defense mechanism against pathogens. In healthy individuals, it creates an effective barrier to what may otherwise infect. That, coupled with...
:vrolijk_1: Well, you'd have to agree that 'discontinued' and 'dominant sw' apply. Parameters for 'availability' or 'price' weren't expressly mentioned; maybe they were implied and I just didn't...
Thank you. It's a good discussion!
Hope my post was not misunderstood. Pondering is good!
My sentiments and personal philosophy on the matter re the OP coincide nicely with Lem's words,...
Chanel Bois Noir if you can find it.
APLS. I also like Tenere and Mamluk enough to own. I have not tested most on the list though.
Not on the list, I appreciate the contribution the honey accord makes to Kouros, Paco Rabanne, Ted...
I think your Stanislav Lem quote addresses the OP quite directly and succinctly... "There are no answers, only choices."
Sampled MdS within the last 6 months and did not care for the immortelle.
I like the smell of TV and use it mostly in small amounts on cap bills, jacket liners/hems, belts, pant legs,...
I think my edit to post #4 crossed your last post. Sorry for any overlap.
My intent is to stimulate discussion. Parfums Regence KJ is a good one and has been discussed in quite a few threads...
^ Perhaps you mean Jacqueline Perfumery in S.F. That's where I phoned in and bought my bottle of Kölnisch Juchten a few years back.
Yeah, I like that one too. It's an EDT and afaik Parfums...
Let’s Talk Russian Leather. No, not the Cuirs d’Russie under the banner of either Chanel, Creed, Guerlain, etc., nor the various other leathers often discussed (e.g. K10, Rien, Gomma, Lonestar...
Interesting... but no lavender?
I did something somewhat similar back when I had only 164 bottles in the collection (mostly mens). I plotted out the scent accords noted in the basenotes review...
Hermes is one of my favorite houses but this one is too sweet for me.
Check out Halston Catalyst.

Yeah, it is good to be lucky. Thanks for your help!
Very nice mr. Andre.
I've got an old(er) 200ml splash that looks identical to the one you posted except the bottle script seems a bit matte, less metallic. Code PA1200... would you be able to...
Everyone has an opinion and some are more opinionated than others. There are various medium available to express one's opinions and to read/hear those opinions of others. To me, YT is a very...
A few 50ml bottles of Méharées Acqua di Profumo by L'Erbolario.
I get the most abrupt change out of Profumum Fumidus: Smokey campfire / Islay whisky to start and ends up a nice vetiver.
Well I made it through the unabridged version without having to take a nap (I did eat a big bowl of Cheerios mid-way though to liven things up). My only wonder is how masturbation was medicalized?

Livin' large... super size me babeee!
Actually, low price per ml was the appeal.
Er, at the risk of adding something postive to the discussion... I had such good experiences at the Barney's NY & Hermes (Chicago) so much so that they kinda made up for any and all annoying episodes...
:thumbup: I appreciate Winter Woods and the heavier/smokier Fireside Intense the most from Sonoma Scent Studio / Laurie Erickson. WW focuses more on amber, respectively, and comes off comparatively...
I'd suggest also checking out Aedes de Venustas Eau de Parfum (for L'Artisan) by B.Duchaufour.
What'd Mom or Dad say?
That said, in my 50 years I've not come across anything that does a better job than Mitchum (clear gel sport). Used in the morning, you should be good for the day even...
I'm of the 'Correlation does not imply Causation' camp.
After reading the OP, I'd think the title would be better "Does Age Determine One's Preference for a Fragrance?"
That said, I'd bet...

Before peeking into this study I held the following general non-malicious, non-discriminatory thoughts as far as typical gender scent preferences:

Wiki attributes the following to Chandler Burr: "An opened bottle will keep its aroma intact for several years, as long as it is well stored." Wiki goes on..."However the presence of oxygen in the...
Those pictures remind me of the movie "American Graffiti" which I've not seen for years.
They went well with my coffee & breakfast with the Beatles. Thank you!
I always thought that notation referred to the alcohol content by percentage.
I think the best guage to use are the evident practices of the Osmothèque museum. For those unfamiliar, the Osmothèque is located in Versailles and is attempting to store as many of the influential...
I'd bet the first-sale doctrine applies; even if what the shop sells is protected intellectual property (doubtful), once they sell it they no longer control it.
Incidentally, formulae (think...

MR smells like a big vase of angry easter lillies to me, well into the long drydown of a nice comforting vanilla. I like that.
No, I don't care to smell of it outside the house... so...

It's so subjective. It's all speculation as changes/reformulations are rarely disclosed by the Houses. Even then, how much detail is ever really divulged that...
I've had it since 2009. After a few wears I was caught by how exact mr. robyogi's 2006 review captured my experience with it:

^Some very respectable bn'rs have said it is among the most powerful they've ever had. That's not my experience. But I, like you, bought it off of recommendations 3 or 4 years ago and later chased...

Don't know if you visited this current thread: http://www.basenotes.net/threads/320817-Top-10-Cheapies!
Quorum shows up on quite a few top 10 cheapies lists.
MPG's Secret Melange - orange & clove or perhaps I should say CLOVE & orange, with the clove throwing off a minty vibe (to me, at least).
Somewhere down the line I picked up the following list. Granted, it mostly deals with naturals and I can't vouch for the accuracy but, by experience, it seems on the mark and perhaps might add to...
1) Elsha 1776 Russian Leather -- $5.56/oz

Seemingly from the bn directory... which, of course, is not the proper universe to gather such data.

Dreams of losing that 'wet dog' phase as it leaves the gate and lasting through the first or second turn.
I don't think so. Classy, decidely masculine and rather timeless. Similarly, I'd not have been surprised to see Eau Sauvage, Monsieur Givenchy, Guerlain Vetiver, etc.

Perhaps that'll work for you.
You say he wears PS most everyday. Variations on that theme: Montana parfum d'homme (can be had online for a song) and Aramis Havana (I know Macy's carries the line) might spark...
Aha! Don't judge a book by its cover, and read past the titles. In my opinion these threads are gems and should be required reading. They contain some very well thought out posts on most of the...
Oh yeah. And for my $.02, here are some of the better ones. Some are over 6 years old, but I've yet to see anything of much substance added to the discussion(s) since then.
Nah... I'm pretty sure I saw this trick on "1,000 Ways to Die".
Back to Black. Pipe tobacco. Shares similarities with Tobacco Vanille and Bogart pH, including rather limited versatility imo.
Demeter makes a Pumkin Pie. Never smelled it.
You might want to give the light and refreshing Paestum Rose by Eau d'Italie a sampling.
I just got the mail. It's the spittin' image of the 100ml bottle, except only 60ml.
Adding to those mentioned: Jules, Derby, Edition, Parfum d'Habit, Davidoff '84, Maxims pH, Or Black, Phileas, Tenere, Gomma, Escencia, Furyo, etc.
Don't know how well the picture will come out but I got a little nutty with LeDandy and went after some older edt and edt solidette off eBay some time ago.

Ahhhh... the socialization of an internet forum. Or, more apt, the dumbing down of an internet forum.
Certainly there've been case studies. We've all been to cigar, wine, car, watch, etc.,...
I get spicy, herbal, fir and patchouli. I like good blasts of it most on a thick flannel shirt kind of day, but anytime's fine in moderation.
I spritzed some from a Saks back when it came out and remember thinking that if I didn't already have the 'peppery/cedar vibe' covered with the likes of GPI, Tumulte, Visit, etc., I'd of given it...
I recently took delivery of Spiced Limes and Imperial Lime bottles from Anglia Perfumery. They make sampling easy and aren't terribly expensive. I'm happy.
So, I'm most curious about your self-imposed sabbatical. Do tell. I see you've killed off 5 and mention having a few more to go before apparently reaching an acceptable punshment...
Puff piece indeed. Where's the beef?
I thought I read somewhere (probably here on the forums) that the House of Creed did not advertise or did not advertise much. Well... that's exactly what...
