Thanks for reporting. I'm anxious to smell it.
Is Zahd shipping soon?
Bought Vikt + mare.
Thanks. Any pictures of the new bottles?
WHAT? When, what prices, etc? Details!
Who knows - I mean I've seen a lot of releases I've never been able to try because they're so limited that I literally have no idea how to try it (eg: Kote). And then each re-released version and...
Anyone else think he's releasing too muhc, too fast:?
I LOVE Jeke, but the ONLY thing preventing me from purchasing it is that it isn't "wearable" to me! Anything like it but with a little more "sweet" ?
Please PM me.
Yikes, don't do that. He won't learn what he likes. If anything, ask for samples of the best sellers.
Try Burberry London, d'orange verte, and Acqua di Gio.
Eventually start checking out...
Song (be sure to listen to the first minute)
What do you like doing in your free time?
I have samples of:
Pear & Olive
Does anyone have samples of their other kinds they'd want to swap with me? If so, please PM with what you have!
Well he did go to Pear & Olive! Honestly, besides Himalaya's cold opening, I haven't seen any other fragrances which evoke a lonesome, desolate winter...and even Himalaya doesn't do that, it's a...
In what situation would you wear it?
I hope he releases a "cold" fragrance, a "frosty" one.
And their candles don't smell outside of 5 inches
I thought Sova and Jeke were dark as well, though heavy seems to be a more appropriate term.
I tried Flou and Sana, they did nothing for me.
My ONLY issue with this fantastic line is that they simply aren't wearable in the typical sense. I would love it if he could explore more diverse options rather than the typical dark routes.
Messe de Minuit
I have Acqua di Gio and l'eau d'issey. In retrospect, they are good smelling, but fairly "generic."
Looking for something that'll satisfy the thread title. I already also have Aventus and...
Thank you for your welcoming words, I look forward to reading yours as well sir!
I don't get it, people love this but it seems generically spicey?
And I spend way too much. I'm not rich, just graduated from university with a good paying job without any debt.
<-- needs self-control!
Ha, well the only reason is because I outgrew my 250r and wanted to focus on improving myself in other ways. Took a decent chunk of change and thought, "Well, it'll improve how I carry myself, how...
WISH it would last more than 5 minutes.
Thank you so much. I'll have to revisit Bvlgari Black, when I tried it I thought I was in a tire store and don't know how that can be appealing! But hey, that's me - maybe I should be more confident...
Yikes, wasn't a fan of this. Literally vegetables haha.
Thanks. I sampled Royal Oud and it was nice, but I couldn't see where I would specifically wear it. Every other scent I've purchased I can see myself wearing.
Funny enough, Messe de Minuit by Etro...
Yikes, leather, tobacco, and oud are the hardest for me to pull off - I don't even enjoy those scents. Are there any mild ones that you would suggest?
Funny story, I tried Les Nombres d'Or....
Thank you! It's funny, originally I said, "Okay, I have a fresh scent - Acqua, let me check Basenotes for a good cold scent."
Well, I did, and then it dawned on me by reading that I should have...
I sold my motorcycle and received a nice amount of money. I took it to sample and then purchase these:
Acqua di Gio
L'Eau d'Issey Pour Homme
Noir de Noir...
Avignon is so much better. I don't like Kyoto one bit. Avignon is cold, ethereal, supernatural, spooky, almost sexy in a dark way, very religious - I LOVE it.
Bond. no 9 I Love New York For All
Absolutely amazing, scrumptous, amazing amazing amazing vanilla.
I Love New York For All
I've never met someone who doesn't like Pure Malt. FYI, Desert Marocain is a great smell, but very difficult to wear in any occassion.
How can we skip over Slumberhouse for beautiful bottles and great sprayers?
Ha. I don't know - I love the Noir de Noir, like I said. It's just dabbling feminine. I don't know if it's the poignant rose, or the combination of chocolate truffles + the rose. It's beautiful,...
I LOVE Noir de Noir. However, it dabbles a LITTLE on the feminine side for my tastes.
1) Pure Malt
2) Avignon // Messe de Minuit
3) Slumberhouse Jeke
4) Slumberhouse Pear & Olive
5) Noir de Noir
Wanted to chime in and say I love this line, period. The best.
Oh really? I thought the sprayers were unscrewable on all fragrances?
- - - Updated - - -
Welp, nevermind then. Shit, I love the bottles, just can't justify $200+ for just a bottle.
Can I order a retail bottle, use it, and then refill from a split? Noir de Noir is great, I want the bottle at $205, and I can do splits for $120. Something irks me about not having the real bottle...
Yep, a ton. I would usually take it, leave a sample on for five minutes, and if the top note doesn't work for me I'll toss it. Then I took an alcohol swab and wiped it down, let it dry, and apply...
I have an issue. I'll put it on, smell it initially, then I can't smell it anymore no matter what. How can someone test the layering of smells with this?
tim, so what do you wear them then? I can't imagine ever wanting to smell like a leather jacket, or like smoke, or like a fire.
Today I sampled Les Nombres d'Or Cuir and Bois d'Ascese. Hoping they were going to be good based off of favorable reviews. Holy HELL - basically smoke or ashtray smells.
Seriously, why would you...
What's funny is that everyone talks about "notes changing" but for me, I've only smelled notes subsiding! Moreover, if the initial top note is horrible, I won't even bother.
Beautiful. Part of the reason most winter smells don't resonate with me is typical heavy use on tobacco notes. I hate walking around smelling like a smoker - no offense to those that do or who enjoy...
No, don't. They are fairly generic in my opinion.
I know the notes change and all that jazz, but I don't have the patience nor time to sample 15 fragrances. How can I properly test them - alcohol swabs?
Comme de Garcons
It's absolutely sublime.
Yes - hence why I dont' wear them.
I can't stand any others.
Thanks so much. As mentioned, Bois Blond is PHENOMENAL initially then it hits so hard on the tobacco it smells like I've been smoking. Though it's worth a revisit.
Does that mean it won't project at all if I can't smell it?
I blind bought Aventus because it had such rave reviews. Perhaps it was a bad vial, or I didn't pour enough, who knows. My question to you is if you spray it on yourself and you can't smell it, does...
Thanks. I actually ordered a sample pack from them. So far, my favorite scents are A*Male's Pure Malt, CDG's Avignon, Etro's Messe de Minuit (arguably this can pass as what I'm looking for), Ambre...
Despise it. Way, way too peppery.
I'm not even kidding. So powdery and feminine.
I despise, despise Chergui. So powdery, so feminine.
I tried Bois Blond, and I love the idea, but the tobacco smell was too much. Any others that would fit? Apple, pumpking, hay, woods, anything along those lines?
EDIT: FYI, I have tried Ambre...
Within five seconds? It was literally that quick.
What that for Aventus?
L'EAU D'ISSEY POUR HOMME
Not woody, but easily the best Summer fragrance.
Updated with a ton of samples.
Does that mean it isn't working/projecting?
Thanks for the encouragement! Sampling seems cheap, but boy can it get pricey quick :)
So why do they gain popularity (asking, not being sarcastic)? Funny enough, I share the same name as you...
Which caught your eye?
It's weird - like I "enjoy" the scents GIT, Allure Homme, but they're almost "TOO fresh", too clean, not enough fight in it and I didn't get the complexity. I know this...
I've sampled the ones I've commented on. The others are incoming.
I love incense, sadly seems that most women won't - and part of me, truthfully, wants to wear it for them as well (conditional on...
Reading your signature, I noticed you like Black Aoud. Humans are interesting in that I couldn't stand it - primarily because I feel like I couldn't sport it.
Perhaps I should sample some of the...
FB worthy, meaning? Facebook?
You're encouragingly supportive on my journey. I'm learning I despise powdery scents, so I have to be extra cautious of it. Tobacco notes are a turn-off as well.
Here is a list of the fragrances I've tried as a 25/m. My goal is to get three fragrances for both Spring/Summer, and Fall/Winter.
As you can see, I've sampled some quite popular smells, and none...
L'Air du desert marocain
GIT is extremely overrated.
This is, without trying to sound rude, far too ethnic for my taste.
This will sound quite feminine, so pardon me. Ever go to Yankee Candle and smell their fall smells? In particular, this and this? Those smells are amazingly delicious. Anything which can replicate...
Would you have an alternative recommendation for a similar style, floraly?
Avignon. Chilling in an exciting way.
Thank you. What I love about Avignon is that it's direct, it's mysterious, it's cold. It's an amazing wintery smell. I love it, love it, love it. If I may ask you, is it "too" direct in its gothic...
Thanks for the suggestions! I have a sample of Sergui Lutens Chergui coming in, No. 88, and Creed's Green Irish coming in. I suppose I went for the more "risky" ones there, but I'm trying to get a...
Which are you enjoying!?
- - - Updated - - -
What's hilarious is that the L'air, on my skin, was very worldly too me. But I kept smelling it, and smelling it, and smelling it...and it's...
Is it appropriate to wear out and about as a 25 year old male?
I ordered a few samples of things, here are a few words on each:
Bois Blond - I love the idea, I can't agree with it's description. A "tobaccoy" smell.
Passage d'Enfer - Cold, but Avignon hits...
I love the gothicy, cold smell of Avignon. But so far two people hated it. Is it too, I'm not sure, perhaps "striking" in a "death" way to wear?
I tried Avignon, and I love it, but my friend thinks if I wore it I'd be an imbecile, even in the winter. Your thoughts?
I'm new to the forum, sampled a few from luckyscents, and I have to say this is going to be a fun hobby!
As per the thread title, any recommendations are much appreciated!
