If anything, it feels like Chanel Allure without the household cleaner opening.
When was the last time we've seen an actual release from this house that was not a flanker? Or any other considerably successful designer house for that matter?
Curve and Eternity are very similar in my opinion. Green, mossy, and annoying.
You could say the same thing about any house now that I think of it.
YSL..you have L'Homme, Rice Gauche, Opium, M7 and many endless flankers fit for summer, spring, winter, and fall!
BdC...unless of course you like the constant smell of sugary cream soda invading your nostrils. :-)
Cool Water, Eternity, Drakkar Noir, CK One & Fahrenheit seem to be the big sellers of the 90's.
2000's & 2010's big sellers are definitely Acqua Di Gio, L'eau D'issey, YSL L'Homme among others.
Narrowed things down over the years. I used to have 40+ bottles but found myself only using 15 of them.
Dior - Intense
Dior - Fahrenheit (Vintage)
Dior - Fahrenheit (Current)
Chanel - Bleu...
I never understood Armani Code's popularity in the first place. I was testing fragrances with my roommate and he said that Code smelled like furniture polish to him..as for me, I never liked the...
Hello, I am looking for either a 1.7oz or 3.4oz bottle of vintage formulation Fahrenheit. It does not have to come with a box, but I do prefer one with a cap. Also, the spray as oppose to the splash...
I prefer Blanche, Platinum and Egoiste over the both of them though.
Sport is definitely at the bottom of the list!
Hugo by Hugo Boss
Carolina Herrera Chic
Thanks for the replies everybody. I'm not much of a hoarder; I'm actually quite the opposite. I enjoy simplicity and minimalism. I have my gigantic shelf of movies, board games, and books (all of...
Okay...so it has been about 3 and a half years since my interest in fragrances has spawned. It started with Darkkar Noir, L'eau D'issey Pour Homme and Hugo Boss. My preferred fragrance themes have...
L'Homme Libre started giving me a headache after a while. It's like a kitchen spice blended into some sort of shampoo smell. ICK.
This. 'Horrid' is not exaggerated either.
Most aquatics already give me the vibe of stale urine. I revisited Acqua Di Gio after so many years and thought, "God. It's cheap! Smells like the creepy guy at the club."
However, scents like Cool...
No offense Moog, but you sound like a frustrated dingbat.
I'd say New West smells a little like Speed Stick. Same goes for Dana California.
Type in the serial code at the bottom of the box/bottle.
I had the same box and it was released in 2004. Can somebody enlighten on the difference between the '88-Early...
I wouldn't advise purchasing La Nuit. It's less mature than L'Homme and has that cavity sweetness reminiscent to One Million. Might I suggest Boss #6? Two sprays and you'll smell like a champ. Real...
It smells exactly like L'Homme Libre to me...no surprise there. They both have the same appearance: transparent blue to clear glass. Hint of spice here, bergamot there...BLAH! Zzzz
No surprise there! Vintage Fahrenheit is pure gold.
They're also distinguishable enough to justify the purchase of a vintage. Go for it..just make sure it's from a legitimate seller.
Agreed. Fragrances can also be banal and sickening at the same time. Some examples include Burberry and the new Gucci Guilty.
Love the bottle! The earlier formulations of Fahrenheit are so distinct and are like no other!
It's so cheap and it smells pretty good.
That's not even the oldest formulation! I found a good price on the same formulation for a mere $55.00.
I'm still looking forward to amount of money people will be spending on the notorious Escada...
I enjoyed Summer Fizz..looking forward to trying this.
Agreed. The only time anyone has ever told me that I smelled 'absolutely delectable' was when I was wearing Z Zegna.
Of course. Because everyone who dislikes Black Afgano adores Acqua Di Gio.
I just irritated when I see people in their 30's, 40's and beyond on Youtube (not going to mention any names) pinning scents from the 70's and 80's as 'old man scents' and that it's something they...
Black Diamond is glorious. Is your nose cray?
Joop! Homme comes to mind.
I wanted to resurrect this thread by saying that I hate the terrm dated with a passion!
It's unfortunate that people my age (22) can't appreciate great fragrances like Azzaro Pour Homme, Tiffany,...
How silly. What would they know? Give Chanel Pour Monsier Concentree a whirl! They have it at Sephora.
Carolina Herrera Chic For Men
I was looking for that one. -_-
I did a side-by-side comparison of Le Male and Body Kouros and it made me realize how synthetic and cheap Le Male was. Yeah..dislike.
I have an older formulation and one of the newer formulations. Your nose isn't tricking you by any means. They are almost 2 completely different scents. The original is more heady and natural...
When do we actually get to see an original release again? I think Gucci Guilty was one of the only original launches by a designer house last year and it was atrocious. I'm not saying that this...
Burlington Coat Factory had a big load of clearance items when I went the other day..2 of which were Givenchy Pi and Kouros.
Hello all, I've found a few good prices on KL Homme on Ebay and it I wouldn't doubt that prices might just start increasing from this point on. When it comes to the oriental/animalic side of things,...
Don't get me wrong, I enjoy some reviews. Cubby is great as are some others, but its turned into 'follow the leader' scenario where if someone tells them to jump, they jump. And that term 'panty...
I hate Macy's. I don't bother stepping foot in there because they don't leave you the f*ck alone! :-(
However, shops like Sephora and Nordstrom are worth checking out.
You can blame the d*ckheads on YT if you'd like..the blind leading the blind.
What is this 'buy, try or pass' nonsense? How about 'test, test, or test'?
And the way they pronounce L'eau D'issey...
Since your budget is tight, might I suggest Carolina Herrera Chic for men? It's a more elegant version of 212 and not many people wear it..it can also be found very cheap if you look in the right...
New Formualtion Fahrenheit
My speculation about the fuss between the new and the old formulations of Fahrenheit changed dramatically. I compared them side-by-side and holy cow!..it's like they're...
GPH II is fantastic.
I'm not much of a fan of L'Instant.
Ungaro Apparition Homme
Paul Sebastian Design For Men (Stomach Acid..Blech!)
A*Men (Synthetic chocolate with mint and patchouli..ew)
Claiborne For Men
Versace Jeans Couture (Or...
Deodorant? Cologne is too distracting. You don't want to be 'that guy' at the gym. C'mon.
It shouldn't be too hard to find a (vintage) Dior Homme in one of those specialty fragrance shops at the mall. I've come across D&G By, Davidoff Relax, vintage Xeryus among many others and they...
McDonald's or Burger King?
How about you treat yourself to a nice meal? :-)
Best: Dior Homme Intense
Worst: Ungaro Apparition Homme *It was only $10.00 for the 50ml, and I feel like I should have spent that $10.00 on lunch.
Fahrenheit is absolutely amazing!
Can't say I have tried this one, but has anyone tried Design by Paul Sebastian? It can easily be qualified as the most disgusting fragrance ever made.
Not to sound like a snobby elitist, but brands like Ed Hardy make my skin crawl. Every Tom, Dick and Harry wears a gaudy Ed Hardy shirt covered in glitter and dragons. I wouldn't be surprised if a...
I don't hate it. I have it on my wrist right now (sprayed it 3 hours ago) and it stops being a syrupy pain in the ass. It becomes more floral with a touch of sandalwood and cinnamon. However, it...
Essenza di Zegna.
M7, M7 Fresh, Kouros Fraicheur.
On a side note, I tried La Nuit today and it was sickeningly sweet and annoying.
Chrome can definitely be thrown in the Had Its Time category. It's very synthetic and flat. It's odd how so many of these mid-90's fragrances still sell so well nowadays.
I use a citrus based moisturizer and my classing antibacterial Dove soap. I never bothered with those gimmicky shower gels. However, the Cool Water aftershave lotion is excellent.
I'm going to be in the deep minority here, but I prefer L'Homme Libre over the 2 mentioned. There's a certain quality in Libre that the other 2 don't contain.
I tested Kouros recently and I am very surprised by all of the negativity that it received from a lot of the users on this site. When I tested Kouros, what I got was a warm, sensual, almost...
I remember trying to find a movie that could compare to the electrifying response I got from watching Casino and The Exorcist for the first time...Don't bother. Fahrenheit is pure magic!
Duty Free's have testers available, don't they?
People will be paying $300+ for Escada Magnetism! XD
I can't wrap my head around the fact that people can loathe Kouros. I tested it at a Duty Free and I enjoyed it! It was strong yet soft with hints of sweetness and spice. Very floral..reminded me of...
It's safe and boring but it is also too sweet. It's hard for me to describe it's lack of appeal, but I just don't like it.
It's best to avoid colognes such as Cool Water, Acqua Di Gio, Le Male etc. on ebay. What I have learned is that the most legitimate sellers will post an actual picture of the cologne that they are...
'Another generic release. I cannot even detect one note of patchouli-soaked butt sweat!'
How does this compare to other YSL offerings? I know many BNers wrote YSL off as a common fragrance distibutor after the original L'Homme. I had L'Homme for a good month before I sold it simply...
Thanks for the info! The bottle is absolutely gorgeous and the notes sound fantastic (Anise, Patchouli, Pink Pepper). I read a review on a website saying that it has characteristics reminiscent of...
Has anybody tried this yet?
I'm not talking about the people who are reselling, I'm talking about the people who for some reason feel that if they don't buy 4 bottles of a rare fragrance, then it will be the end of the world. A...
Nice! How is it? The bottle is gorgeous and the note breakdown is oddly fascinating.
OMG! Totally bought 10 backup bottles because some Youtube idiot told me to! Seriously, you're all being a bunch of sheep.
I've received compliments on everything I've owned. Warm skin + moisturizer + a confident head on your shoulders + good posture will generally garnish a compliment or two. I've even received...
Ooh! Burned! I agree that Boss has some unique scents (despite the fact that they aren't my cup of tea).
I would have to ass Versace Man Eau Fraiche and Lacoste Essential. Even when I started...
Agreed. It has a cheap deodorant smell to it.
Black & Aqva.
This fragrance burns my nostrils. I enjoy many 80's scents (Tuscany, Lacoste, Xeryus etc.) but this one is PAINFUL to wear.
Ezra Fitch has been discontinued for a while and is becoming increasingly hard to find. People are smart enough to sell these rare fragrances for such high prices because people are dumb enough to...
It is oddly similar to Armani Code but more fruity and loud.
Indeed. It's like they're collecting freaking Pokemon cards.
RESURRECTED! My vote goes to Dior Homme.
Definitely one of the best from Joop! along with Jump. It can also be easily found for under $30.00. MAGICAL!
PE (One of my favorites.)
D&G Light Blue (Women's)
Dior Homme Cologne
