something about d'iris annoys me.
d'homme is more soothing and...."perfect"
or why not buy both? AND bvlgari PH?
they are all good
wish i could go. but damn homework and college aps are drowning me.
plus im in a thrifty phase - saving up for my escape.
maybe next time
clarin should make a corresponding fragrance with their mens skincare.

it is nice - found a sample in my sample box
but a tad bit of more freshness and lightness from the orange blossom would be nice
hahaha i should.
mike, what do you think of this:
first of all, you must have dior homme anyways....:cool:
i say dior homme.
it goes well with formal attires. since all i can imagine hearing the words "dior homme" is awesome suits by slimane.
yeah i have to re try that again.
i gave it less respect because of it's sibling un jardin sur le nil. <3
but then again im not a big figgy guy.
i need to go to l'occitane!
its a calm fragrance.
which is good once in a while...after wearing stuff like terre d'hermès or a*men
mirto di panarea
if it was that easy - i should've bought le labo
i forgot to add my "budget":cool:
yes simple is good.
for those days when you just dont want to smell like citrus or something summer-like
i find this scent quite bland; but in a very good way. almost neutral
i want the limited...
i have F32
and i want FdM
BO VdF - i need to smell again. i greedily ignored it because of black orchid.
but i was looking for a more "pure" approach to orange blossom
i should check out...
besides the obvious (jo malone and le labo),
what are some good orange blossom fragrances?
doesn't have to be "for men" but logically wearable for a 17 year old
i have orange blossom by le...
yeah but i meant was...shape wise...any of the womens fragrance with the corresponding shape...

i want a "female" companion to connect with my very male.
i also want an m;men and the mintea....but i need to reassess mintea and choco too
i've only tried two creeds
and one of them was silver mountain water
and compared to all the other fragrances i've tested.
this is quite versatile.
heavenly, i know
but long-lasting? :undecided:
"new subtle fragrances from axe"
i sniffed a sample from the may issue of american GQ
of bergamot - meh.
collection: bergamot, amber, and i think vetiver
i want to try amber
haha i was about to add that to the "fragrance in movies and tv" thread.
i believe its fictional but im probably wrong.
your thought on producing the ficticious fragrance reminded me of how harry...
i've only went through a day without perfumer 3 times because really forgot and though the jacket would have lingering hints of the dry down from last week....or when im sick. but sometimes, i still...
a tad bit sweet
but come on it's summertime!
i love this scent; i see myself wearing this through the summer.:bounce:
wore random scents as a kid
the red lacoste jr. and etc
but i got "into" fragrance when i was 15
and started with Antidote - Viktor & Rolf
vodka sounds interesting
but would't it be nice if they made:
a*men dark chocolate
a*men with citrus perhaps? (hence orange chocolate; maybe bitter orange?)
prada pour homme
gucci pour homme II
mirto di panarea
paul smith story
went to a my first fragrance festival.

but i got:
Thierry Mugler - A*Men Pure Coffee
Acqua di Parma - Mirto di Panarea
something from the CDG incense series
or anythign incense=y, smoke-y, dust-y, or darkly herbaceous.
i agree on the "perfume doesn't age well" thing
maybe their perfumes, specifically, are constructed in a way that it isn't supposed to last a lifetime - having no intense chemicals being it is...
so....the refrigerator storage method is...."okay"
i trust monsieur malle.
i wanna try those booths...
but i just called a boutique and asked, she says "around 2 months"
the olfactory senses are powerfully linked to memory
either smells from daily life allude one's mind to a certain fragrance or memory
a fragrance alludes to a certain memory or object (an...
SOTD reapplied :confused:
saw them at nordstroms
my SA said i'll love them
i did...not just LOVE OMG I NEED THIS!
out of all, the most respectable is basil, but it somehow reminded me of a darker mugler cologne.......
smells generic drugstore ghetto "cologne"....i like the citrus in it............(?) i like the "middle" notes
i prefer the women's if i remember it....smoky almost...:confused:
my little brother's comments: *cough* how much did you put on?!

Prada - Amber Pour Homme is the same as Prada Pour Homme
from what I've hear amber pour homme is the real name
but people call it "prada pour homme" since it is the first fragrance for men from...
silver mountain water has a more fruity approach - sweeter almost.
more bold in "flavor"
while quercus is calm and clean
...more like identical...hahaha
i like both , but i like quercus better...
i know right?:cool:
rough estimate of money spent = $2,000 USD
value of my collection if i was to sell = priceless :cool:
now, money i am about to spent on my list of fragrance to get......
my wardrobe is pretty new
out of the one's that are heavily used and are almost out
the only I'd buy again is Thierry Mugler's Cologne - it's almost like a body mist...:cool:
gucci pour homme II

the alcohol felt as if it was "drying" in my mouth (you know back in the day as kids you'd dry out your tongue on purpose? all salty and lightly stingy?)
actually, i was thinking about getting one ;)
but decided to get a bottle of a Frédéric Malle
terre d'hermès would be perfectly nice - but faintly worn
look for something fresh and "sporty" like:
- lacoste - essential
- acqua di parma - colonia, assoluta, or intensa
- dior - eau...
- dropped Gucci Pour Homme on my foot numerous times
- tipped Mat;Very Male in my perfume cupboard causing a domino effect

but i remember at colette in paris
i say "c'est un peu feminin"
