2015 bump. Please read the 'new' stuff in the OP!
What batch codes?
I might have an older type. Batch code 80461 (CheckFresh: 2008-02-15). Bottom of BOTTLE has 'Paris - made in France'. Ingredient stuff is listed on back of box. It does have an embossed or w/e PR...
How many do I need to complete? At the moment.... not applicable? :)
What can make me stop collecting? Well, one thing is me being dead, hah.
How many do I have? Of 'unique' frag bottles......
I actually like the "Is my x fake?" type threads. :).
The long 'story-mode' fragrance reviews can be :rolleyesold:, where I won't even bother reading the whole thing or w/e. In general, I may...
Well... PM, PM EdTC, PM EdP. The latter two haven't even been out for 50 years.
What may have happened is the EdTC changed 'name' to EdP (not sure if worldwide, or just USA/NA, or what). However,...
Enjoy! I actually might prefer/enjoy A*Men Pure Havane more so than A*Men Pure Malt, in general.
Don't hurt me, Basenotes! :vrolijk_1:
Here's some of my stuff, both frags (A*Men Pure Havane and A*Men Pure Malt) were bought directly from an official Mugler site, not from a discounter.
A*Men Pure Havane box:...
Bump. I'm curious. Carnal Flower is a frag I'm interested in getting. Has it been significantly weakened?
Honestly, in general I'd probably still rather have/buy the real deal or w/e as opposed to a clone/smell-a-like.
Thanks for responses Vernona. If I were to order there, I would probably do it to where I'd get free shipping. As it stands currently WITH the shipping, the price is not much less than if I bought...
At an office last year, I did maybe ~2-3 sprays of MI.
Another employee noticed it out in the hallway or w/e. I was using a little office room that leads to the hallway. I don't know if she was...
I did do a contact thing before I read your post, thanks. :).
Thank you. I don't know why, but in the checkout area, there's a tax amount of €38.17 after I've entered in USA shipping information.
??? Do they charge tax regardless of where it's being ordered...
I ordered Reflection Man from FragranceNet (received a magnetic cap type).
I've looked around, could y'all clarify what it means?
Say there's a 78% Vol. or whatever thing on a box for a 100 ml frag. Does that mean it's 78 ml alcohol out of the 100 ml?
OR does it mean...
Different options for cheapies or so, such as.. (at least for USA ordering(?)?)
Midnight in Paris Eau de Parfum
Versace The Dreamer
Lapidus pour Homme
Boss Bottled EdT (#6)...
Er, well, despite what y'all may think of Reflection Man's smell in general(?) - can you compare the differences (if anything noticeable at least?) between magnetic and non-magnetic cap type(s) with...
How is the magnetic cap version compared to non-magnetic cap version (with the current bottle type or w/e), if applicable?
Same? Very similar? Blow to longevity/sillage/projection? Very...
Dude what? Screw the 13ZZ01 and 14G01.... if there's an 11X02, GET THAT! That's maybe *THE* primary 'legendary' batch of Aventus. For whatever reasoning, 11Z01 maybe became more popular.
Do you mean Eau Sauvage Parfum? Maybe ESP out of those 3 for me. But, it might depend. :)
Hah, I've experienced bad smell(s) from one or more frag bottles and/or packaging that I own. Yes, at least one is Bond No. 9. Did you try to smell the cap?
I don't know if it's some type of...
FYI, there is The Scent of Peace and The Scent of Peace for Him. There might be people who have posted here not specifying, which maybe could cause people to seek out the 'wrong' fragrance.
Would you elaborate, please? :)
It might depend? :). I own an EdT of BdC, might get a bottle of EdP in the future.
I also have AdG pH and AdG Essenza.
I own a bottle. To me, it might basically/pretty much smell like orange or some type of orange/orange-ish smell.
I like it. :)
So.. you have a 2014 batch and you want one with 'less' smoke?...
2014... smoke... error! Error!
They told you his name?... Oh man.
Link for the Bond No. 9?
Price range? What about darker/thicker/sweeter?
The One for Men
A*Men Pure Havane
Dior Homme Intense
La Nuit de L'Homme
Thanks, :). I'll maybe do a blind buy in the future for it.
How's the mint note or w/e in 1861 (Renaissance) compared to Cartier Roadster?
Something that might be cool is if the SOTD fragrance or w/e is displayed under the avatar pic or something, :).
I don't own all of them, probably never will. But I have DH (black stem?), DHI (2x, maybe both dif formulations?), DHS ('newer' 2012 type) and DHP.
Based on smell with the above, I'm not sure,...
(Not saying they're my most wanted or whatever, but..)
No. 1 for Men
In general, do NOT buy Chanel from a discounter. Chanel is a brand that I might ONLY buy through an official Chanel website or an official retailer such as Saks Fifth Avenue.
You may not like The Scent of Peace for Him then.
I made a thread last month: http://www.basenotes.net/threads/403722-Help-identifying-fuzzy-static-y-smell(s)-from-certain-frags?highlight=
Which Z01 might you have tried? What year?
Don't need to manually go through pages or w/e, there's a search feature/search features. 'Search Thread' with a down arrow, top right area of the top area of the page, right above the top post on...
....have you tried searching in this thread?....
OP, are you sure you didn't mean C for Men for the Clive Christian?
Ah, well that's good news. It's probably a pretty safe bet to assume they're an official retailer then if at least two of the brands have them listed on their sites. Thanks!
The lighter blue or darker blue bottle type? or?
Try to test them out from a store or something. Even if a fragrance has been reformulated, try to form your own opinion on what you smelled.
Say you smell a frag, and think it smells fantastic,...
Any of you received confirmation that they're an official retailer of any of the product(s)? I don't mean from Parfumerie du Soleil d'Or, but rather, the brands they might carry.
Out of those.. the D&G might seem the most mature, followed by MiP -> DHS -> Spicebomb.
As far as masculinity.. I'd maybe do the same order OR switch MiP and DHS (so D&G pH -> DHS -> MiP ->...
I'm not sure. Maybe it's a new release? A flanker to regular Attimo pour Homme?
I've bought a lot of frags from discounters, but with Chanel, I have ONLY bought directly via a Chanel website or in person at Saks Fifth Avenue.
I may never end up buying any Chanel from a...
Well also, don't simply think about the quality of the fragrance.
Say there's Cheapie A - cheap ingredients, common amongst public.
Expensive A - cheap ingredients, barely known in public.
Please update if you get any info! :)
What? I copied and pasted. The ~8% thing might be wrong, that may be lower than the actual concentration. Look:
I e-mailed back, and part of my response is:
"To clarify, the X for Men that LuckyScent sells (in the black bottle(s)) are rated for a 25% concentration?"
Alex promptly responded:
A response I got from LuckyScent:
"Hi Robert, thanks for your email. The Clive X for Men is what they've chosen to call a Perfume Spray- they list the concentration at 25%, so in more standard...
Hm, so I maybe did not notice on my CC packaging an 'Eau de Parfum' categorization. Are the regular line ones considered extraits/pure parfum or simply EdP, or?
And the higher priced...
Natural vs. synthetic frags doesn't necessarily mean one is going to be 'better' in regards to allergic reaction(s).
Test frags you're interested in on yourself (sample from (a) physical store(s)...
Thank you. So, are the pure perfume ones non-spray only?
Interesting, I looked at mine, and that's the batch code for it as well (S4311X01).
Are there any of you that own Royal-Oud that is NOT S4311X01?
If you don't mind, share when/where you...
Something I've tried to figure out. Is there not only one strength of X for Men?
I've noticed these little bottles (for example, on StrawberryNET - $1,601.50.) going for way more expensive than...
Interested. I own bottles of Portrait of a Lady and Musc Ravageur, as well as samples of them, and samples of Le Parfum de Therese.
Musc Ravageur is delicious (have only done a wearing from my...
I'm not sure if you misunderstood my post or not (were you trying to agree with me?), but, anyways, to elaborate my point(s):
Read the OP, 'Which is better'. It's regarding both of the scents. One...
Grats. What was your reaction? :)
A thing about these kind of polls might be that people vote without even having tried all of the options or w/e..
If you have not tried all of the options, then perhaps think about (or more so?)...
For legit Aventus at least, an easy way to tell maybe most of the 2014+ batches is to look at the tubing inside.
Basically.. thicker with the big ball bearing = 2013 and earlier, and thinner =...
Might be real. Older style tubing? White underneath cap? CREED logo or w/e on atomizer head, instead of a CPEED one? :)
Someone got a little cash to burn (in order to share what arrives, if anything)?
Eh, I'd probably rather get multiple smaller bottles (100 ml) rather than one large one (amount of air that gets into the bottle.. I'd rather a single smaller bottle turn and have others that I...
David Yurman Limited Edition
1) Will you restock on it before it's gone forever? Maybe I'd look to order one more?
2) Are you willing to pay crazy prices for it since it is rare now? Currently,...
I'd like to see the new box. I'm curious.
Hm. I don't know. Maybe it's considered discontinued or something for the American/NA market or so, but still 'alive' in other places?
Not saying it's overrated, but, please stop 'talking' about Aventus so much.
Oh wow, really? Have I underestimated mine? Hah
I just got a bottle of PoaL in recently, but I was sent 1-2 spray samples of PoaL along with the order - and 1-2 with another order. So, I have 3...
Do any of you do ~1 spray for Portrait of a Lady?
There may be a problem with this type of thread... that being ignorance/uninformed people.
Such as with 1 Million and Le Male. Are they not the projection/longevity beasts as before? What about...
Vinnie - is it from maybe the latest packaging type? There has been talk of a newer box or whatever for Kouros (I first noticed maybe either this month or last month on basenotes). Maybe the...
Might be waiting for a while.. (in general with regular discounter pricing)************** :).
Also, was it a tester/unboxed?
Huh. Well... maybe it's more concentrated? ;) Less spraying? Haha
Might be waiting for a while...
and what if it's reformulated by that time? ;)
Haha. Probably the hair or w/e got into the bottle prior to the filling process? Maybe they store empty bottles up-right, whether covered or not? I don't know. I would maybe try to get a replacement...
So, I have some FM samples and there might be a date on at least 2 out of the 5 that I have (I haven't tried to look on the backs of the other three so far for date stuff.)
Yet, I haven't found a...
So, I've noticed it with The Scent of Peace for Him, Duro, and *maybe* Black Afgano.
Imagine an older CRT TV or something that isn't on an 'actual' channel, and it has that black/white fuzz going...
I'm not sure about Oud Wood. But, I find Musc Ravageur to be delicious.
As far as a 'sexy signature'. I don't know.
I've done one order with FiF and two with EN. Haven't paid any kind of customs fee or whatever that I'm aware of. :)
As far as sprayed on... Musc Ravageur - Bottle arrived today. Yep, I blind buy! I really like this one!
Black Afgano - From a sample. It maybe doesn't seem to be as 'abstract'/'strange'/'unusual'...
Update: So, the first package that hasn't shown any tracking info (with USPS at least) for being in customs.... has supposedly arrived in the main city and there's an estimated delivery day for...
And did Creed go back to the thicker style tubing temporarily? A person on Facebook sent me a picture of supposedly 14D01 - which has thicker tubing. :shocked: Heh
Okay so, y'all are aware of the like supposedly smoke-less / less smoke-y or whatever batches that have been coming out, aye?
Okay... like when did that 'start'? With the less/non smoke-y-ness....
What kind of shipping times within the past ~2 years have y'all gotten from Essenza Nobile/First in Fragrance (Aus Liebe zum Duft) to the USA?
A big thing I'm interested in is the time, roughly,...
Bump. Anyone else? How many, if applicable, of you have frags/a frag that's at least 20 years old and seems fine to you?
- CPEED instead of CREED on the atomizer head.
- The label on the bottom of the box might seem 'too' white/bright, and thin font(?), and it looks to be frayed or something on edge(s)...
The temperature fluctuation would maybe not be as big compared to a cooler.
For example, say a cooler is.. ~53 degrees, then cuts off, and goes to an ambient ~74. Now, say the A/C cuts off and the...
No, I do not. I don't want big temperature fluctuations (say they're in a cooler, and the power gets cut off or the cooler breaks, and I'm not home for hours/days). I have over 155 different frags,...
