Yah Mo B-Men - Michael McDonald
This is exactly what I was thinking.
Sadly, it's equivalent to saying "If you want to hear a composition in D minor, please play Fantasie Impromptu. Don't compose a new song."
I have always...
I just did this and I AM IN HEAVEN!!!! Perfect for spring or fall..... WOW
My number two after polo green is definitely Calvin Klein original in blue
Certainly this. Nothing better represents the decade. It was seen as the pinnacle amongst my classmates. While it was always exciting to wear or try another, it always seemed like settling if I wore...
I'm going to go out on a limb here. I actually like the Lomani better! There's less of a sweetness compared to SB. Amazing stuff.
Are they reputable?
Boss Number One
By the way, I can't imagine even wearing ONE spray of the aforementioned.
...the wearer likes Kenzo Jungle Homme and Terre D Hermes? The both strike me as having some intangible....oh..."dirty" smell to them. Not earthy-dirty. Dirty as in you know when you smell it what...
Thanks for the tips, my friend.
I am a fan of Loewe Esencia. I am thinking a blind buy is in order.
How powerful is this?
I will NEVER doubt any of your assessments. EVER.
This stuff smells more like SpiceBomb than Spicebomb itself!!!
Less than $15 shipped and 3.4 oz!
My brother.....my friend.
Sorry for the delay, Mr. C. I also have no love for Gucci PH II. I don't smell any similarity between them. There's something kind of "musty"(not musky) about GPH2. HiM smooths the gnarly edges with...
What are some common frags containing neroli?
I have never smelled it, and where I live it is unlikely that I will without a blind buy.
Who here can tell me about it?
Is it like Polo Green??? I did read one comparison the PG.
I just sent them a message online. We shall see when they respond.
Much is compared to Pure Havane: Samba Skin, Insurrection Wild, TV....
I own both, and I LOVE LOVE LOVE both.
Amber Man seems more complex, is more like incense, and you are more likely to spray it repeatedly just to examine and analyze the opening. Stunning....
Of COURSE, krsams1! How could I forget? Lomani AB Silver, Insurrection Pure, Fresco...good call.
Lately it seems like any of a number of frags are being compared to One Million. Not everyone likes it, but I have read about Antonio Banderas' Golden Secret, Halloween Man, and Lomani AB Millionaire...
I am shocked at those who don't pick up a gasoline note. It makes me wonder if you've never smelled gasoline.
and I need more characters
I bought mine on ebay.
If you like Halston Amber this will certainly work for you, but it's more intense and spicy. I like it.
Bump........has anyone tried this yet?
This smells like soap to me. Maybe Paul Sebastian?
Scentstory 24 Gold-
Smells like a warm square of crumbly coffee cake with extra cinnamon and a drizzle of vanilla frosting
Thanks for the well-wishes, gents. I don't mind the symptoms so much. I just can't stand not being able to smell lol
Either one is too much on its own. :)
Well, Decillis, my good sir, it would help if in the future you not hold back so much on your feelings.
I have not, but based on the quality of the two I own, I am VERY intrigued by the entire house.
Insurrection II Dark will be my next.
This is horrible. I can smell NOTHING.
I even got a new Glade Plug-In, and had to ask my daughter how it smells.
Oh I'll be getting "Dark!"
This house is a dream come true. It's like "Our Version Of" scents done by Bill Nye the Science Guy.
What does Pure smell like?
So I have Insurrection and Insurrection II Wild....
High quality frags, both.
I especially am blown away by Wild. UNCANNY likeness to Pure Havane! In fact, a little less "dry" smelling than PH....
It can be had cheaply on ebay provided you are willing to have it shipped from Australia or China....in the $41-48 US range.
I found a 6.7 ouncer with a body wash for $15 at TX Maxx.....unreal.
Believe it or not, i passed. I think it smells like some cheap 70s after shave. Maybe something by Mennen.
Okay, BigBZ.......I am officially blown away! The differences to my nose are practically non existent!!! What a great value!
When's Al DiMeola or Billy Cobham getting a celebrity fragrance???
Eau Des Baux
ok.....20.24 for a 3.4.....like 25 for a 6.7.....are you kidding me with this???
Okay, gents.....off to Fragrancenet I go to get some Shock. Back soon.....
I have come to the point of thinking that pineapple is a silly smell for a man to have. No offense to SpongeBob SquarePants. I am seriously baffled as to the big deal. I have worn Aventus and thought...
During the drydown? I only sprayed it on a card.
Insurrection II Wild ordered, blind bought....$26 includes shipping.
Insurrection Wild, huh? I just got Insurrection and find it unique: like an orange creamsicle maybe. I'll give insurrection Wild a whirl. Thank you :)
I don't drink Starbucks, but I own all three frags. I think people are missing the point of the thread. I am hardly impoverished. Perhaps this was an attempt at humor on your behalf.
I must have had a bad bottle of Avant Garde. I smelled no similarity.
Anyway, we are talking about a couple of $10-$15 bottles. Avant Garde is double that if memory serves.
Both of these, Samba Skin and Animale Animale, have been touted as good alternatives to Pure Havane, and even sometimes mentioned as great alternatives to TV.
My vote will go with Samba Skin...
This thread goes from being my undoing to being my legacy. Far out.
20.24 on fragrancenet. Blind buy for the cost of a niche decant? ALL. DAY. LONG.
lmao 89 VIEWS AND NO COMMENTS????
I better go blind buy this....only 11 left and you people are DANGEROUS in matters such as these!
Anyone here try this yet? I see oak moss!!!!!!!!!
When I tell you that I have 83 bottles in my wardrobe, and you comment, "That's adorable."
Encre Noir has that dark, burnt smell about it. Like a campfire that burned down to its last few embers just as a light morning rain sprinkled on it.
I also think CK Obsession Night is a good...
Ahhhh, there it is on eBay.
TWO HUNDERD AND TWENTY FIVE DOLLARS.
Guess I'll wait for a domestic release.
I am anticipating a synthetic TDH mixed with Insurrection. Could be ok....
I had purchased the EDP in a 3.4 from FragranceNet before they ran out. So it does exist, or did. I hope this doesn't get discontinued. Maybe the fact that SpiceBomb and 1 Million were making their...
...from FragranceNet. I bought the last, or someone did today. At $23.24, what a steal. I HAD to stock up. I am sure this is temporary, but why why whyyyyyyyyyy is this so cheap??? It's amazing.
Nice little haul is on the way from FN.
Reyane Tradition Insurrection 100 ml $16.49, Michael Kors vial $2.24, Hanae Mori HiM EDP 1.7 oz $23.24, and Animale Animale 100ml for $19.49. I spent just...
Regarding TDH, I have really not had much of a response either way. I live in a part of the country where people are expected to say nice things or keep our mouths shut. That could mean that TDH is...
A big ol' crunchy coffee cake with a vanila cream cheese drizzle....:) NICE stuff.
23.24 on FN using a 25% off coupon. PM me if you can't find that coupon.
I do have Carven Homme. I may give a whirl to the others mentioned. Yardley has been a curiosity for some time. Zara Man is...
Hanae Mori HiM EDP. I am snatching this up at a rate of about $24 a bottle for a 1.7. This has not been on the market long enough to be considered distressed merchandise, and the compliments it...
A parakeet cage with a distant and recently-doused campfire's smoke drifting into the window.
I bought a couple knockoffs for $35 each, and I think they smell better than the real thing. Then again, I am not a fan.
On the cheap side, Dirty English and Tim McGraw Southern Gentleman(weak, though)
JH< I don't think Polo Double Black is bad at all...reminds me of Armani Code. Does MDB last longer than Polo DB?
So what about it did you despise? The notes SEEM appealing, but I am thinking it's a bit polarizing. Is there a cherry pipe tobacco vibe?
I am considering a blind buy, as it's wicked cheap.
I just want your take on it. Any comparisons? Any opinion would be helpful.
Hanae Mori HiM EDP. Can be had on fragrancenet for about $25, and I has garnered more compliments than any I own.
HAHAHAHA I want it just for the name
For me it was a sample of Guerlain Derby. God awful stuff and STRONG!!!
Also disappointed in Giorgio Red, Avant Garde, and Boss Number One.
This may be hard for us, but remember: most guys would struggle with finding a top 2.
This is the best I can do:
Hanae Mori HiM EDP
Kenzo Jungle Homme
Eau Des Baux
Beyond any comparison, Hanae Mori HiM EDP. I had ladies at a local bar calling me "Mr Smell-good" and one even came up to me with a pen and paper and told me to write it down. A co-worker who hates...
I am 100% with you on the Joop PH, but not at all on the TDH, which I love.
Joop is straight up gasoline.
It has that plastic cover thingie, and I do NOT recommend lifting it by that.
So it crashed down to the floor and now it doesn't spray.
I just bought it.
I have ordered three one ounce...
I agree with this wise gentleman, but I would like to add Spicebomb to the list. The popularity of HiM, Avant Garde, and Eau Des Baux seem to have spiked and there seems to be a movement toward spice...
Sounds amazing! Anything to which it compares?
I have never tried black. Enlighten me while I get out my debit card lol
It doesn't smell like anything else I own, either.
Every time I wear it after a long hiatus, I wonder why I don't always keep it in stock. It garners many compliments from both genders too.
Birds of Fire??? GREAT music!
I didn't see this coming, the litany of "MOTHER OF GOD NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!" type posts. Temps in the upper Midwest this time of year range from cold to...
YSL La Nuit
I liked this one the best. lol
Great Puns in this thread lol
I have the following in my car:
Kenzo Jungle Homme
Scentstory 24 Gold
Hanae Mori HiM
Ilum Dean Fresco
Polo Green(one Warner spray, one Cosmair splash)
That's what I...
Hahaha well done
lol dumb cap....and yes it is 360 Black.
There are a lot of great eyes here!
Well done. All are present, Creed is not Aventus though....then again I should not have included Creed in "designer"
17.76 including shipping for the 100 ml.
Anyone here care to tell me your take on this fragrance, as well as whether you feel it was a good deal?
I see I made a typo on Salvatore :(
You're cool, too. You get it.
I do want to throw Calvin (blue bottle) into the mix here. Halston Z-14, Polo green, Calvin....all staples of mine.
I did like Drakkar on occasion, but the new...
I love Spicebomb, but the longevity is disappointing. VERY overwhelming to others at first, though
No matter what they charge you, when you check out they will tell you that you saved $328.23 and it will be circled for emphasis
There are some wonderful suggestions here, and I thank you all for the help. Now phase 2 kicks in. I'll check fragrancenet for availability and go from there.
So far she has DKNY be delicious (2 different ones), Katie Perry: Killer Queen and Royal Revolution, Ralph Rocks, Vive La Juicy and a couple others....
She is 12.
She prefers fruity scents,...
Boss Number One(original formula)
Welcome to Basenotes. Nice list.
We have done threads like this countless times, and we are so Pavlovian regarding fragrance that we dive right in each and every time! I can't believe people will fall for this. Sheesh. Weak People....
