Armani code ultimate
I bought the following vintages
Azzaro chrome fresh woody
Zino davidoff (vintage)
Givenchy gentleman (vintage)
Giorgio for men (vintage)
Photo lagerfeld (vintage)
Lauder for men
+1 for Givenchy gentleman
Thanks Bigsly good to know
Vintage is much more refined and robust I enjoy it a lot more than the current. I managed to get a 50ml bottle from ebay $60 worth every penny
I just received a Zino bottle with script lettering (calligraphy lettering) but no mention anywhere that it was distributed from Lancaster (as you can see attached), what do you make of it?
Don't worry you're safe mine looks exactly as your bottle and got it from Debenhams UK can't go wrong
That's right but you still get many written variations on base of calligraphy lettering bottles(see attached in my previous post).. Not sure which is original/vintage 80's bottle.
Can anyone spot which Zino is the original/vintage?
Hi again Basenoters,
Is this Zino original/vintage?
knowing Ricky's financial difficulties and priorities I would go with Axe body spray
Unfortunately haven't tried the vintage Lauder so i'm referring to the reformulated
I tried pour lui for the first time yesterday it reminded me with Lauder for Men (mid way through) and the dry-down leaning more towards Antaeus and VCA.
I am just wondering which one is the original 1986 bottle (they are all italics script):
This one 
or this 
silentrich, good information but which one is the 1986 bottle the 2.5 or 4.2oz?
Badarun, i'm aware of this fact. Even within the italic there are different versions for example some mention 'natural spray' while others state 'vaporisateur' on the boxes (refer to images below)....
Slayer, snaggy is right the splash image above is 2.5. Sorry I didn't mention earlier
Have you compared your splash bottle to spray vintage and noticed any difference?
Cheers tensor good info.
Good to know hednic. Can you tell if the spray bottle shown in the image above vintage or not? Have you tried the splash bottle I wonder if longevity and sillage are better than spray?
I wonder whether Zino (EDT) was released as a splash or spray back in 1986? Which is the original (please refer to images)? If you would choose between the two which one would you...
I haven't had the chance to smell the vintage but the re-issued version from Arden is divine. It reminds me of Givenchy Gentleman (especially dry-down) but prefer Giorgio For Men for smell,...
I got this set it from a shop while I was on a visit to Düsseldorf last year so haven't got a clue sorry
Got it from Germany. They smell the same. EDT is harsher and I get 6+ hours from it, Aftershave is smoother and lasts for an hour or so. Really good quality stuff 29534
That's exactly how I feel about aventus.
Thinking about Hard Rock era 1985-89 (Dokken Ratt WASP Whitesnake WhiteLion) I'd go with Giorgio Beverly Hills/Lauder for Men/Givenchy Gentleman/Aramis/Paco Rabanne/One Man show \m/
Acqua di Parma Colonia Intensa - perfect for office especially this time of the year
Good ol' kouros it ain't just an exceptional frag but brings also humour in people.. Brilliant indeed.
Kouros Yves Saint Laurent for men (current formulation) - complimented by a female colleague and she wants to buy one for her husband
I did this last night but with Burberry London
CK One Summer 2013 or Clinique Happy will do it for me if i'm heading to a warm/hot coastal location on a sunny day
The dry down is delicious but the opening is too sweet for my taste I just wonder if honey replaced with leather would it be the perfect scent?
I bought my bottle last year batch #: 62H901 from Debenhams (UK chain so got to be original).
2 glass seems is exactly what I've got.
But.. I don't have the words 'Imp.by/par YSL Beauté...
Code ultimate.. By far the best Code around IMO... quality fragrance.. deliciously vanilla!
Mine comes up as 2013.. maybe i should of checked first before buying it
Interesting! Not in my case. If you still keeping the packet, does it say in the bottom 'atomiseur naturel' or 'vaporisateur'?
How many reformulations since the original? Can someone pls show pics (bottles/packaging) for each original + reformulated versions?
Vintage Lauder for Men would probably be the only option then? however getting won't be easy and expensive i guess (after all these years)?
I did some search in the net and saw this one at Amazon...
Guess what guys, i just bought this from Debenhams and I'm totally disappointed with it... even though it smells delicious but longevity is a disaster with 40 minutes tops. Here are the pics of my...
I found this Azzaro pour homme URBANSPRAY in Dubai duty free (pic attached).. I couldn't find much info about it on the net. Anyone know anything about this? and how is it compared to the original...
Lauder for men by Estee Lauder (1985)
Giorgio Beverly Hills (1986)
Givenchy Gentleman (1974)
If you chose 'other', mention the one you prefer over the above (stick with 70s & 80s).
Thanks for your kind replies sounds like there are different versions out there. Thanks for taking that picture and posting it easyfish. Bigsly, can you please post the photo of the one you have if...
This is one of my all time wicked fragrance. I don't know whether if I just go ahead and get this one from Macy's or get it from eBay
If it's been reformulated badly (not worth grabbing the...
Azzaro chrome.. safe/refreshing
If you're on the 'sweet' side of things then Infusion d`Homme Prada OR Terre de Hermes (as mentioned earlier by cameron).
these bottles suit...
me too.. fab selections but can't buy any because I tend to have issues with longevity.
Beautifully presented thanks for sharing
I wore Azzaro PH for my latest job interview and I got the job
This week i've been using Drakkar Noir and Azzaro chrome.. last week i used Prada Infusion d'Homme on couple of occasions.. they're all good and safe IMO.. i normally use couple of sprays on the...
+1 for Encre Noire-- dry, earthy, woody
Tom Ford Grey Vetive has this fresh and soapy edge which will make it perfect for your age.. I'm older than you so I prefer Encre Noire where the Vetiver smells more natural and spicier. Give that a...
remember: electricity + water in case of flooding = fire... put on your favorite fragrance, keep calm and think positive.. keep safe and take good care
I have tried Guerlain Vetiver, Tom Ford's Grey Vetiver, Chanel Sycomore and Noble Vetiver Chopard but IMO Encre Niore is more natural (raw), complex, robust and has better longevity out of the whole...
Brut Cologne or Old Spice. Enjoy the party :lolk:
Get in touch with whoever you got this from and explain. Give it a shot.
The other day I was at a fragrance shop and wanted to try Azzaro intense ph but they haven't got a tester, so the customer...
Thanks everyone for your feedback. From what I read, maybe "The One" does not exist for the majority of us. I guess it's true, human nature, we're curious creatures and we always like to try...
way to go Dailey good for you
Finding the perfect fragrance is like finding the perfect woman. Some people are luckier than others, some will find it early on, and some later on in life. Maybe some will never find it but let us...
I don't hate it but it's too expensive for what it is. I sampled Aventus twice, it smells ok but not great. For the same price I can buy bunch of quality fragrances that I enjoy more.
l'Occitane Eau de Vetyver
.... I changed my mind towards Encre Noire after I tried it out and I ended up buying it
I had the chance to finally sample Aventus. From what I've been reading on BN, I expected one exceptional fragrance.
I like it but certainly not exceptional. For example, I find more complexity...
it's mossy but not fishy.. you getting confused!
The only Chanel frag i can stand is bleu. I haven't tried Egoiste (1990) tho!!
I came across this http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/641/dscn0455f.jpg/ - 250ml Old Spice AS in a glass bottle and well priced. I always thought Old Spice now days (Procter & Gamble) is made...
Who cares what girls like on you!!! Be confident and put whatever fragrance you want, they'll be attracted to your confidence and not the fragrance.. But if you rather self conscious whether girls...
Azzaro Chrome Summer (new fragrance 2012), top note as grapefruit. I tried it, pretty simple and fresh you might fall in love
Also try Azzaro chrome you may like it, masculine yet fresh
Haha.. watch out for Kouros then surely they will sniff him out in no time lol
Old Spice.. full of vibe and aroma.. enjoy
Nop, the dry down is too herbal and not exciting to my senses. I sometimes use it as an aftershave but not a cologne.
If you approach a woman with confidence and your heart is filled with happiness, She would love you for it. What i'm trying to say is that try to find a fragrance that makes you...
I love using Old Spice cologne during the spring season. It's also my day-to-day morning aftershave. I still appreciate the current formulation. However Jovan Musk is a complete no no for me.
That's exactly what I do as well.
I personally don't experience any issues with fragrance while traveling... I stick them all in a toilet bag inside the big bag (the one i'm not taking into the...
The magical mighty KOUROS
I read somewhere that Johnny Depp is a big fan of Zino.. I wonder what's his thought in all of this :rolleyesold: .. come on Johnny SAY SOMETHING
If anyone knows the websites where we can get the originals.. that would help!
I recently bought Davidoff in block letter and had to give it away, smells a bit different and hardly stays on your skin after an hour. I gave it away and currently in pursuit of Zino with cursive...
Guys, this smells pretty awesome. Similar to the original Aramis but less offensive (less sweet). The unfortunate fact that its longevity is a bit average to me. Not sure if I will get it or not!!
I will avoid the net and when I get the chance will test the new formula in a legit shop and probably have it again after all these years. You've helped me reach a healthy and peace of mind...
Ted Lapidus PH. as per profile pic
I was hoping the silver packaging refers to the old formula. I heard bad things about the quality of the scent and longevity of the current juice (I assume it's the one which comes with the red...
Thanks. Still in doubt tho
Prada - Infusion d'Homme
I haven't had Santos De Cartier for years and thinking to re-visit. I saw one for a reasonable price but not sure how genuine it is. Because Santos comes mainly in red packaging but this one is...
+1 for Kouros and Yatagan. Also would like to add Ted Lapidus PH.. you're set to go!!
I was testing few fragrances the other day and suddenly this woman turns up grabs a bottle of kouros and sprays it into the air and then she had a big sniff of it.. she turns to me and yells "I LOVE...
+1 for Yatagan. I hope Issac will fear the sharp and curved Turkish saber!
I assume it's gona be pretty warm and sunny since you live in FL so I would keep it simple and enjoy the freshness of Nautica Voyage throughout the day. If you think this is too casual then bring on...
If you wanting green/watery/cucumber fresh notes and less focus on the citrus note then I'd suggest Aramis Always (It's pretty light on the stomach if you know what I mean).
I have a friend who admits loathing the smell of Joop Homme but loves to wear it on certain occasions to experience or exhibit nostalgia. I personally share his initial part of the statement.
Try Lapidus PH.. let us know what you think.
Kouros, Drakkar, Aramis by Aramis all sexy and goody goody exciting stuff
What would you be doing tomorrow? What part of the day? What's the weather like?
Charmeg, you showed passion and persistency, they better comply. Well done!!
I've only tested the current bottle and I'm happy with it. Haven't tested the original tho! You know better.
