Cruel Intentions it is!
Thanks for the Birthday wishes!
Today is my 29th. I'd like to treat myself to a fragrance. I have 2 in mind.
By Kilian Prelude to Love
By Kilian Cruel Intention
I can only get one. I'm leaning more towards Prelude, but...
Very quickly. I bought a bottle of PM straight from TM.com. Had it in less than a week.
CW in no way compares to the quality of GIT. If you can afford Creed, you'll be doing yourself a huge disservice by buying CW, imo.
Reflection Man is very nice. It's not too heavy that it'll choke someone out. In fact, it's what I'm wearing today.
OS is very nice, as is TV. Especially now that it's fall. I haven't tried the TL.
They're great. I've bought quite a few decants from them.
Tom Ford is very nice. Another, and it's very polarizing here, is Bond #9. You can go to their website and get a sample pack for $15. I believe it's 6 samples. Comes in nice little 1.5ml sample...
I'll go against the grain and say I think there are more important things to focus on at 14 than fragrances. Just imho.
Tom Ford TV will be back in rotation. Also YSL La Nuit.
Bond #9 Riverside Dr.
I'd say Creed Aventus, Green Irish Tweed, Milliseme Imperial but they may be out of your budget. Try Fragrancenet.com BMRC2 is a 10% off...
You can get splits of the more expensive scents like Creed here. You can find them in your price range, maybe a bit more.
Creed Green Irish Tweed, Millisime Imperial and Aventus are all very nice scents.
Bond #9 Riverside Dr. is another. It has great longevity and projection.
Also Bond #9 Wallstreet. It's...
This is exactly why there are batch variations. It's not a quality control issue at all, imo. Nothing in nature is ever the same, thus the variations. Personally, I rather like it. Now it can be...
I believe he meant the X02 batch is no longer.
The current Z01 batch is excellent. But really, the best batch is what YOU like the most. Smell is so subjective that it's different for everyone. ...
Yep! I just like getting whiffs of my frags, even if no one else is around. And as said, a great opportunity to sample new scents.
No problem. I splurged and got the Creed black leather wrapped atomizer. It's much larger than the pics make it look. I'd guess 2oz (60ml). But it is incredibly nice. I put the remainder of my...
Nasomatto Black Afghano
I already have Tom Ford TV, which is a wonderful cold weather scent. I'm looking for 1 or 2 more, though. But I don't know what.
I do 4. Each arm, shirt and back of neck. I work in a glassblowing shop, so it's not obnoxious to my shopmates. I also sweat a LOT working with hot glass, so sometimes it doesn't have great...
You took the words right out of my mouth.
Btw, what do you think of the flacon of Z01 that you, Skip and myself split? I rather enjoy it.
The Z01 is good juice. I'll have to give Creed a call and order an N01 batch, if they have any.
How do you like Aventus overall? It's becoming my signature scent, but I think I'm going to switch...
Depends on what I choose to wear. Sometimes 1 spray is all I need. The max I'll go is 4.
Either Aventus, GIT or MI.
I respectfully disagree. When I spray a scent on my shirt that's not known for great longevity (some Creed, for example) it has much more staying power while sillage is about the same.
That's my experience. I've had a 4oz bottle of Z01 for about a month, month and a half. Psychoskip, 1280Adam and myself just split a 500ml flacon of the same batch this week. The Z01 that I've had...
I have no clue as to the answer of your question. I just found it interesting as I'm quitting smoking and using an E-Cigarette. It's actually helping; I was a 2 pack a day smoker. In the 4 days...
Z01 is a good batch. Give it a week to mix with air in the bottle. Then post your findings. I have a batch of Z01 AND a split I did with 2 other members of the same Z01. The Z01 that I've had...
Huh, strange. On the FAQ page, it says people are using their 'tinctures' for electric cigarettes (E-cigs). http://shop.perfumersapprentice.com/t-faq.aspx Second question down on "inhalation...
Wow, this is difficult! I have much more than 5, but off the top of my head:
Bond #9 Wall St.
Bond#9 Riverside Dr.
That's how it is with GIT. Wouldn't be surprised if they started that w/ Aventus. And yes, Z01 is a good batch.
I have a bottle of Creed Original Vetiver (no cap, not a tester) 2.5oz that I've only sprayed 4 times. I just don't like it. $100
I also have a bottle of Dolce & Gabbana pour Homme 2.5oz that I...
I would put them in the back of the refrigerator, in their box, unopened with the cellophane still on the box.
I wear whatever, whenever. Actually, there are some I save for certain times. Tom Ford TV is way to 'heavy' for a hot summer day in Houston, Tx.
I second this. It's very sweet, though. Also Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille.
Amouage, Bond #9 (Wallstreet and Riverside Dr.) and Creed (Aventus, MI, GIT, Original Santal, Himalaya) and Tom Ford (if that's even niche). I must say that I'm new to fragrances, so I don't know a...
I know this is very over-hyped, but I wear Aventus on a first date. Sometimes GIT or IM/MI (whatever it's called). Since longevity isn't great, I carry a little 2.5ml atomizer to freshen up in the...
This. At $5 a pop, it'a a good deal for a nice looking accessory. I have one in every color so I know what's what.
Although, I'd LOVE to get a CREED atomizer. I'm not a fanboy, but I really...
Pretty much this. I will add that Psychoskip is good people and safe to do 'business' with. I've had a few transactions with him and won't hesitate to do any more splits with him. In fact, we're...
LOL!!! I mean if I'm not already dressed. But yes, holstering up would be part of Mad Max's routine. :)
This. Aventus, MI, Bond 9 Wallstreet, Riverside Drive (applied lightly), immediately.
GIT and other strong scents, about 30 minutes, or the time it takes to make sure my dogs have water in the...
I wear Creed Aventus, Green Irish Tweed and Imperial Milliseme. I wait ~15 minutes before leaving the house. I only use 2 or 3 sprays, but it's a very nice, non offensive scent.
Now, if I'm...
I don't think they're accurate. Most are missing one or more of the following: Top notes, Heart and base notes.
Ebay prices are usually always a bit cheaper with Etailers. It's used to move old stock quickly to make room for new stock. I and many other people do this in my industry, which is...
Glassblowing/flameworking, which I made a career out of, cars and guns.
Awesome. I'll be re-upping my Aventus when I get back from vacation. I've still got a bit left. If it's only $20-30, it's not an issue. I'll very happily pay to get a bangin' batch. It's shaping...
Thanks for your quick reply. That's nice to know. Does anyone happen to know how much they were charging for batch requests?
Can one call the NYC Creed Boutique and request, and actually receive a certain batch/check availability?
Either Creed GIT or Milesime Imperiale. TdH isn't what I'd really consider 'fresh'. Very nice, but not fresh.
Creed OG Vetiver
I always say that I think Bvlgari Aqva is superior to ADG. Not as many bro dawgs know of it. I REALLY try to stay away from the scents that are 'in' in the younger adult crowd (I'm 28).
I don't think it's too young. Your Son has good taste.
This is like comparing apples to chicken.
Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille. Look no further.
How many sprays are you applying? Not as many sprays may give you less problems.
Bvlgari BLV or Aqva. Really, most any aquas are great summer scents, imo.
If you have some money to spend, I'll add Aventus and Green Irish Tweed. Vetiver, too, if you like that fresh, clean and...
Exactly! I've sampled all of the ones I bought. SMW was my least fav, but I still enjoyed it. Not to mention, I only got an Oz. I got the big bottle where it counts... GIT. I have a 4oz Aventus...
I just bought 4 bottles of Creed (OG Santal 1oz., Himalaya 1oz., GIT 4oz. and SMW 1oz.) from the Creed Boutique online last night ($740!!-I'm a tight wad. For me to spend that amount says a lot...
I'm a glassblower and this is a very common "repair" that I have to do. Try lightly tapping the female fitting with a wooden spoon. Also try rocking the fitting back and forth. They are never 100%...
Burberry Touch reminds me of rain.
Millesime Imperial, Green Irish Tweed, Himalaya and of course, last but certainly not least, the all famous Aventus.
L'Essence de Cerruti fits all of your criteria.
Aventus, L'Essence De Cerutti and Eucris
Dior Fahrenheit and L'essence de Cerutti. And of course Aventus :rolleyes:
Creed Aventus, Creed OG Santal, Creed GIT, L'essence de Cerutti, La Nuit, Geo F. Trumper Eucris and a few others.
Usually the windshield crack repair epoxy is the best. Not sure if it'd be smart to use on a frag bottle, though. It penetrates the whole crack to seal it.
Just use some Gorilla glue. Krazy...
I'll second Declaration by Cartier.
Oh, shit. I just bought a bottle of this of Ebay, too. Will you PM me the seller's screen name so I can check if I bought from the same seller, please?
Damn, never mind. Congrats to the winner! That was fast. Some of you Basenoters know your stuff!
So it's not for you. That doesn't discredit the people who do think it's worth it's price. It's all subjective whether a perfume/cologne is worth it's price. I personally like Aventus. I have...
True. I've not tried Bvlgari Man. Only BLV and Aqva. I'll have to get a sample of Man. Is Tom Ford for Men a specific frag, or just 'for men in general'?
I love Tom Ford. I'll have to try this, as I also very much like Bvlgari! Thanks
Sorry to hear that the frag didn't live up to your expectations.
I mean no offense, but Anger Management classes may benefit you.
You're lucky. I'm a glassblower of 12 years. I blow borosilicate (Pyrex is one brand name. I use Simax) glass for a living.
A crack isn't "dangerous", but it can grow very quickly and easily...
I have some similar to these. They work great. I got them from Nordstrom, but can't find them on their website.
+1 to Boss Bottled.
Also, Geo F. Trumper Eucris. It comes in a very nice bottle, too. Read some reviews of this. It's a bit mossy, but very pleasant, especially on the dry down.
You might like Dolce & Gabbana pour Homme, Creed Green Irish Tweed, Millesime Imperial, Aventus or Himalaya.
La Nuit is very nice and stands out, but is still versatile.
Bvlgari Aqva and Bvlgari...
Creed Millésime Impérial is my SOTD.
That is also true. What is 'PM'? So I know that it's strong in the future.
But maybe half sprays behind the ears. Actually, forego behind the ears. Google the reason. Seriously! It has to do with the pH of the oils produced there.
Don't try what? The needle method? That's how some people do splits. Just saw a vid on here yesterday about it.
pop the sprayer off. With a large syringe and thin needle suck up the juice from new bottle. Put needle in the tube's hole under the sprayer (you'll see it when you take the sprayer off-it just...
Creed Aventus or Milliseme Imperial.
Dolce & Gabbana pour Homme
Azzaro Pour Homme
Brilliant! Don't know why I didn't think to do that.
Edit: Decanted 3.5ml into an vial with atomizer. Wonderful. It brings out the notes even better.
Thanks, rynegne. I've been applying directly to my wrists and wiping on my neck. But I'll give the cap method a go. I'm sure with use will come skill. I was just wondering if there's a 'right'...
I really love Geo F. Trumper Eucris.
But I'm having trouble applying it. It's not a sprayer; just a screw off pewter crown cap. I either get way too much or...
Sure is. In Diamonds are Forever.
I really like this. I'm horrible at describing scents. It is super complex. If you like Poison's coffee, you'll like this scent. I wouldn't blind buy it, though.
To me it's subtle. I wouldn't blind buy it. I'm sure you can find it in a store. Or a 1ml sample online.
Geo F. Trumper Eucris is a very nice scent. Mossy undertones that I think you'd like. I recommended it in another thread, also.
La Nuit is wonderful,...
I'll second Bvlgari Aqva. It is very nice with good longevity, projection and decent sillage.
No clue. It's Ebay, where anything goes.
I wouldn't say it's weird, but different. Geo F. Trumper Eucris. The bottle is awesome, too.
You're considering a blind buy for >$800?
