Merkur 34C HD and a Merkur Futur
My top 5 in order of performance and availability
1. Nivea Shave Cream
2. Palmolive Classic/Classica
4. Proraso Original (green)
5. Gillette Sensitive Shave Cream
I have tried...
I used to be able to get the Dove Men soap bars dirt cheap here in the UK but the stopped producing them for the UK market which was a shame. Can still get them online and I rate them quite highly.
Creed - Millesime Imperiale & GIT (and Cool Water)
SMN - Peau d'Espagne, Melograno & Pot Pourri
Lorenzo Villoresi - Uomo & Piper Nigrum
Comme des Garcons/Monocle - Hinoki
Montale - Full Incense and maybe Dark Aoud too
Peau d'Espange by Santa Maria Novella
Well I knew it wouldn't be long from sample to full bottle for these two.
Comme des Garcons Blue Encens and Blue Santal
It's been a long time since I last tried a fragrance that I didn't think was just middle of the road and haven't found anything that really grabbed my attention.
I was browsing the net a few weeks...
Comme des Garcons Blue Encens from a sample..... very VERY close to going FB on this.
So I am looking to place an order to replace some Lorenzo Villoresi bottles I have and I was wondering if anyone had ordered from their own website directly. The best options seem to be to...
Well in that case, as much as I like the bottles, I don't think I'll bother getting the "extra" version.
Now the profumo..... that's a different matter :grin:
Has anyone tried both of these?
I have had a few bottles of Uomo in the past. I love it and am currently looking into replacing my last bottle however I was wondering if it was worth...
I've used them loads of times. The used to be called cheapsmells.com.
Quick delivery and great products.
I've selected other because my favourite is Cipresso di Toscana
As it is now spring and I dip my toes once more into the Basenotes fold....
I once made £20 profit but that was because what I bought was an absolute steal and the person buying made me an offer.
Everything else I have ever sold has been done at a loss or breaking even.
Everyone remembers this one however the one that sticks in my mind is the references to the balms and ointments from the Santa Maria Novella in Mason Verger's house. Then later in the book there is...
A couple of years back a lot of shaving webshops came into a formulation of Old Spice that came from India.
Myself I was able to bag a handful of bottles of the Old Spice Lime formulation and to...
I've only found 3 of them to be bottle worthy for me and those were Black Musk, Dark Aoud and Full Incense. As well as these I also have a 20ml bottle of Black Aoud which I like but don't really see...
A brand new bottle of CdG Hinoki for me and a bottle of Salvatore Ferragamo Signorina for my sister.
I dug this out the cupboard. It was once on my selling list and I'm glad it never sold now given that it's almost gone from the world completely
Sneaking in at the end of the month, I was able to bag a 100ml bottle of Terre D'Hermes for £49. Nice way to go.
You could add me to the list of those with a bottle of Egoiste Cologne Concentree. 100ml still wrapped in cellophane when I got it.
Funnily enough as rare as it is I've been considering parting...
Anglomania your experience is exactly the same as mine, flawless.
www.ausliebezumduft.de is the place that most people get Montale samples from. Myself included.
SOTD and SOTE will be Dark Aoud
From your list (and my personal favourites) I'd go with Dark Aoud and Black Musk next.
I would also suggest samples of Aoud Lime, Aoud Musk and maybe Aoud Cuir d'Arabie
Once upon a time I would have said Millesime Imperiale however I believe if this option were given to me today it would be Villoresi Uomo (somewhere really warm) or Montale Dark Aoud (anywhere else).
Montale Dark Aoud
Montale Aoud Lime
Montale Aoud Musk
Montale - Aoud Cuir d'Arabie - Perfect, but I am unable to shake the fecal/vomit note in it.
SOTE: First wearing out
I don't have any :thumbsup:
No wonder. I just tried to open this site and my antivirus went nuts. The site appears to be riddled with malware.
I have purchased direct from Montale in the last week through their own website. Paid through paypal on Nov 29th and received my fragrances on the 5th Dec.
Paypal is about as safe an secure as you...
I think the high prices were fuelled by the possibility of "no more Montale" a while back. They have become widely available again meaning that the prices all go back to normal. Well at least outside...
Well seeing as a lot of people were asking. I have just had a pleasant transaction with Montale.
Ordered 2 bottles on Thursday 29th November and here they sit in my hands on Wednesday 5th...
Montale Full Incense, Dark Aoud, Black Musk and Crystal Flowers
I have both Egoiste and Egoiste Cologne Concentree.
Egoiste is like being punched in the face
Egoiste Cologne Concentree is like being punched in the face with a velvet glove... an all round...
I do sort of agree with Greyland however all I got from it was cumin.
No Aoud and No Leather?
If fresh is your thing then Santal Wood
The longer I wear this the more I realise I need to explore this house...
So I got my samples through and this is what I find so far.
Dark Aoud: The star of the show. Smokey Aoud and easily worth a full bottle.
Santal Wood: Initially I found this to be really nice...
Sorry to hijack the thread but does Full Incense smell like Silver Factory or is Silver Factory just a longer lasting Incense fragrance.
Montale - Santal Wood
Been thinking about a bottle of Havana for a while but am unable to test as this isn't available stores in the UK (or at least not any I've been to).
Purchasing a full bottle is not an...
I love Egoiste and I also bagged a FB of the cologne concentree earlier this year. It is simply one of the greatest fragrances I've ever had the pleasure to wear. It never gets me compliments though....
I wish you worked with me. I offer these ladies so much scented pleasure but they must all be too shy to say so :/
Like everyone else here, the first thing I thought was "Cool Water"

Like everyone else here, the first thing I thought was "Cool Water"
Came in from my Sunday on at work, feeling a bit below par, shower, shave then decided to wear this. At once everything was perfect. Some classics will always have a place.
Smelling like the inside of a new wallet.
2 seperate not desperate. Damn phone.
I did say it's for 2 desperate people. I'm only trying to do something nice, not change the world.
I could just as easily be selfish and say that I'll just get all bottles for myself.
No reason for it being Montage except that I'm getting samples for myself to cater for my tastes but I'm rubbish at choosing for someone else.
I recently posted on the male forum about picking up some Montale samples with the intention of purchasing a full bottle in the future. While I have settled on the samples for myself I...
I kinda thought this would happen.
Ive narrowed it down to 6 samples
Aoud Cuir d'Arabie
You'd think it would be that simple eh?
I've recently been interested in Arabian/Eastern influenced fragrances and have been shopping about the budget level of perfumers (Al Rehab, Al Haramain, Ajmal etc). While some of these...
Well so far.
Al Haramain - Naeem - Turned into a big soapy powerhouse on me that people were noticing and I wasn't too taken with it. Im sure it will find a home somewhere as a gift.
Al Rehab -...
If I like Khaliji then I'd maybe look to getting a spray bottle although I was lead to believe that many Arabic fragrances aren't/don't mix well with alcohol.
Thanks for the recommendations. At...
In my ever ongoing quest to find something different I did a little research regarding Arabic fragrances/oils etc.
I've been on a bit of an Arabic/oriental/spicy kick recently (not just in regard...
At SMN in London, what are the prices of their Cologne range?
I know in mainland Europe you're looking at 75Eur but I've heard they are quite a bit more expensive here. Can anyone...
Is there anywhere online I can buy legit Santa Maria Novella?
I can't seem to find anywhere. Especially in the UK.
If I called the UK store would they take an order over the phone?
If anyone is interested I'm selling HdP Ambre 114 on the BST.
You need to source yourself some of the "Indian" Old Spice that you can find on ebay. It is the business. Especially the Lime variety.
Lorenzo Villoresi - Piper Nigrum
Comme de Garcons Hinoki reminds me of old furniture. Specifically old furniture in an old church which I remember as a child.
Happened with this, Rive Gauche, Body Kouros, and almost any Serge Lutens I've tried.
It always seems to happen.
I test out a scent and find that I love it. I go full bottle on it and after wearing it a few times I find it gives me a headache :(
Not everything I own does this to...
This time last year I was just back from Florence. Have thought about that place every day since.
I think this could have been a great opportunity which will more than likely be missed.
Lacoste L.12.12 Blanc
That's how I feel. I see guys getting complimented all the time for smelling "soooooo good" with something cheap/designer. It's what matters to me that matters most.
Have given this a full wearing tonight after trying on in a store. Nothing to write home about but inoffensive generic summer sport fragrance.
If you wanted something aquatic/sporty then there is...
I think most of you guys will be pleasantly surprised. Especially if your expectations are as low as you make out. Ok so it's not groundbreaking but it is pretty wearable.
Sure is working.
Ah ok, I could consider this thread closed then.
Thanks for all your hard work Grant!
Cheers for the feedback. I could consider this thread closed now.
Thanks for the hard work Grant!
I've seen some people on here using the Tapatalk forum App
Has anyone else's stopped working? Mine wont sync with the website and says I should contact website admin.
It works fine...
Lorenzo Villoresi Uomo
CK One shock - Graffitti
Comme des Garcons/Monocle Hinoki
Just an extra shout out for Connaught Shaving. Paul has been my one stop shop for all shaving gear for the last few years.
Only down side is because they are small sometimes they go out of stock...
Puredistance M = Worn in leather jacket
Had a craving for this..................
IMO its not that the Allure line is bad as such more that it is there to please the mass market. I liked the original Allure Homme and bought it but it never got that many outings. AHS is the real...
Roger & Gallet, Jean Marie Farina will fit the bill perfectly.
Modern take? Comme des Garcons Cittrico Cologne
Histoires de Parfums 1740 (Marquis de Sade) may fit the bill. Not too fruity but strange enough.
I agree with Creed Millesime Imperiale however IMO if you really like the "Colonia" type citrus then you could not go wrong with Lorenzo Villoresi Uomo.
I wore Chanel Cuir de Russie on my wedding...
Unfortunately not, While HdP are very generous with samples the Edition Rare frags are not sold in sample bottles, so I'm out.
Well I've only had my Bottle of Ambre 114 for about a week and man what a fragrance.
I knew what I was getting myself into with it when I had been trying it from a sample but I had no idea what it...
Nice spring day, dentist appointment in an hour. A nice healthy dose of.....
Sneaking in right at the end of the month and no thanks to the ineptitude of La Poste.........
HdP Ambre 114 and a collection of 6 samples....
