Word on the street is that 1 Million from Paco Rabanne bears more than a passing resemblance.
I second Azzaro Pour Homme.
I don't know anyone who doesn't like it and it's very reasonably priced.
Not in a thousand years.
Mario Absolutely nailed the description of 1 Million - which is an instant classic. Great job.
Paco Robanne have always been up-to-date and this new offering is no different. A welcome change from...
I think them fellowes at CD have succeeded in splitting opinion as the original Fahrenheit does. Bottle design betrays the fragrance though. Certainly not pure as the container suggests.
Tried this today at the fragrance counter in Boots.
Appently contains notes of pineapple, citrus, frosted mint, thyme, geranium, cedarwood, white musk, and tonka bean.
First impressions bad,...
Rocabar by Hermes
My favourite hangover scent. A perfect blend of cinnamon and vanilla
100% blind buy safe
Fantastic stuff thank you so much.
The only one I have tried from the previous suggestions is Kouros which I also love. I've just ordered up Richard James which was reassuringly expensive. I'm over...
My favourite scents of all time are
1, No. 88 by Czech And Speake
2, JHL by Aramis
3, Edition by Dunhill
4, Love Potion No. 9 by Penhaligons
With that said I'm having trouble locating...
A truly horrible scent, like shoving pipe cleaners up your snout
Hi, Does anyone remember the original Lynx/axe deoderant sprays from the 80's? I used to love all 4 which were Amber, Spice, Musk and Orient.
My favourite was always Orient for which I have been...
I really love the smell of Fahrenheit by Dior. I understand that the main ingredient is honeysuckle. The only problem I have with Fahrenheit is that it's so popular and therefore want something...
Excellent thread, knew you had to name drop Mugler. You must really love that stuff ::)
I would tend to dissagree with the direction in which male fragrance is heading. I do not yet believe we have...
Hi, I would love to know more about peoples opinions of this range as I received a sample today of Opus 1870 which I fell for immediately. Usually it takes a few hours at least for my nose to...
Has anyone ever tried replacing/mixing water in their steam iron with fragrance. Would the heat affect it? What are the health issues with inhaling steam edt? Am I nuts??
I am ready to buy something from this range but would love some opinions on which is the best one. I understand that most are unisex fragrances and that is fine, but I wouldn't like anything too...
Hi, I have recently run out of a favourite of mine, Polo Crest by Ralph Lauren now I have decided to try something different but similar if you know what I mean.
The closest frangrance I have at the...
If you had to pick just 1 design house that you were allowed fragrances from, what would it be?
Personally I would have to say Givenchy because the diversity and originality of this brand is unique...
Hi, can anyone tell me about this fragrance?
OK, take Kouros add rose, honey and Johnsons baby powder and there you have Amouage gold
I have read your own 'well informed, entertaining and sensible posts', Graffam. Quite frankly I am not impressed.
As for being petulant and juvenile, I admit to being so. With that said.... EAT MY...
Yeah, why is that. I got a collection of 50 fragrances now and the only one which is an EDP is Lalique pour homme.
Something must be done!! >:(
I think that the one and only reason we wear frangrance is to impress other people. Who can say that they would ever get bored of someone complimenting you on how good you smell or inquiring as to...
What are you going on about noseorgy?
All I want to know is why there are more posts on this website from men than from women.
I wasn't really implying Basenotes was sexist, that was just an attenton grabber.
As for posting in the female forums, no thanks. I get no pleasure from 'girly' scents. Although I am wearing...
Just wondering why you think there are so many more topics started in these forums regarding mens fragrance than womens?
Certainly not stereotypical I think.
Hi, Does anyone know anything about this one? I've heard it is similar to Givenchy Pi. Any thoughts?
Kouros don't smell like piss!!! It smells like poo
Would anyone be willing to let me send them a sample vial of a fragrance which I am unable to identify as the tester des not have a lable on.
I think it is for men but could be unisex.
Bustin' my cherry on Paul Smith London
Does anyone know where I can get hold of Anatomy for men by Concorde?
On the side of the bottle is a web address ( fragrancesample.com ) by this aint working.
This is like nothing I've...
I know that some of the members may find it vulgar to discuss the price of fragrances, which if you add up the cost of this hobby could be ££££'s or $$$$'s. But I would like to know what was your...
Another fragrance similar to this I believe is Romeo Gigli. Has a rose topnote followed by spices then wood. Although the difference being an unusual note running all the way through which reminds me...
Being fragrance connoisseurs, do you like receiving fragrances as gifts or do you prefer to always select your own. What do you say if you get a bottle of brut 33 from an uneducated but well meaning...
I really enjoy the posts here at Basenotes but sometimes I get a bit confused by all the inside jargon used by some members. Being relatively new to this I thought it would be a good idea ask for...
Wow, thanks everyone for the suggestions. I'm gonna buy the one from Corralwest.com. That is exactly what I am looking for so thanks smellitnow. Might even buy myself a genuine cowboy hat too. Yeehaw
I'd really like a scent that smells of black cherries. I'm not sure if it can be pulled off in a mens fragrance. Are there any to buy with this in it?
Is their somebody from the UK that can sell me a small amount of this, a sample or decant. Can pay through Paypal
Thanks for the info Yvan. That's a lot of flavours fighting for attention.
I have a miniature Lapidus here which I have never tried. I'm getting something from the top notes that reminds me of dolly...
I got a bottle of Romeo Gigli and I'm really at a loss to descibe it. I've never smelt anything even remotely similar to this and that's why I think I like it. Are there any more fragrances that...
I'm from the Isle of Wight, England. Most people here don't know their A*MEN from their A*HOLE :-?
Michael Kors Michael for men
The Baron Cologne
Comme des Garcons/White Box
Comme des Garcons/Orange Box
I think I've found one... LeMale. Gotta be right :P
Am I close?
I have received a bottle of Uno For Men by Antonio Puig but there is no review on it here at Basenotes to enlighten me to as whats in it. I myself think it's really pleasing with lots of citrus and...
I suggest Miracle by Lancome or Platinum Egoiste by Chanel. Both are non offensive and I have never received a negative comment on either. Have a search for these on the review section to be sure I'm...
Dolce And Gabanna PH - hard to find something else this good
Why do some colognes froth up when shaken and others don't? I took 2 random colognes from my collection which were platinum egoiste and roger and gallet, shook them and found I got loads of bubbles...
Just wondering if age has anything to do with this great hobby of ours
I'm fairly new to fragrance appreciation but I have just realised that climate would play a major part in what we are all wearing. Having just suffered a really luke warm summer, I am wondering which...
What exactly am I looking for in this scent to know if it is authentic? as I connot compare to anything. What are the notes and the overall experience of Amouage Gold?
I think you may be right, it was offered to me as a second chance offer so it was up for auction not as a buy it now. Does anyone know what particular scent this one is?
Hi there, I have just bought a bottle of Amouage from eBay and was wondering if anyone new if this is authentic and if so what scent it is? It is item number 5614447301 on eBay...
I beleive this one smells remarkebly similar to Versace Dreamer, just a bit of citrus on the top notes.
I could recommend this to be worn to a restaurant as it doesn't offend
Hi there, I know that in one of the episodes she steals Tommy Girl for one of her classmates although she would probably wear something even more tacky than that.
I'm from the UK and am going to see...
Having just received a bottle of YSL M7 I have been blown away by the similarity of this and pure AMBERGRIS.
Maybe they should re-lable this JONAH because it comes stright out of a whale as far as...
But do you find us guilty of holding on too tight to the past, slowing down progress needed to reach perfection?
I say relegate the past to our memories and move on
I feel that Bvlgari Aqva smells almost identical to L'eau D'Issey with something nasty thrown in for good measure. Could be fish..... so may evoke the effect you are looking for
I'd like to get your opinions on new releases as my tastes in fragrance seems to be parallel to how long they've been about. Anything pre 1990 I cannot stand for the reason that they seem outdated. I...
Hi there, that sounds really usefull. If someone could send to firstname.lastname@example.org I would be grateful.
No, this is cannabis oil, it smells nothing like weed...... so I've been told
Does anyone know of any fragrance that uses cannabis/hemp as an ingredient? I have this in an oil burner and it smells great.
gotta be dunhill x-centric for the cleanest smell of all. you could almost drink it
I have just tried Paris Hilton for men and it is surpisingly good as I thought that this would be all about the name and not what is actually inside the bottle. It has a very strong melon...
Thank you very much for your advice. Any more would be very welcome.
The reason I ask is that I have read about a scientific experiment conducted by, well scientists to determine which smells...
Can anyone tell me if there is in existence a fragrance for men containing both cucumber and liquorice?
