    Re: Musc Kublai Khan question

    I have to say that I love this one as well.
    But, then again, I like animalic fragrances, so take what I say with
    a grain of salt.

    I ordered a bottle of this one blind, and I really liked it,...

    I am probably in the minority here, but...

    Maitre Parfumer et Gantier

    For the most part, the fragrances are excellent,
    Santal Noble, Ambre Preicieux, Eau de Iles, etc. etc.

    But, the bottles...

    Re: "What does niche smell like?"

    I'd let them smell something like Gucci Guilty for Men,
    then I'd let them sample something like
    Musk Ravegeur, or Invasion Barbare, and watch in
    amusement as their mind is blown...

    Re: Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme Chanel for men

    Bought this one blind as a bat.
    Just got it via UPS this morning and
    wore it as my SOTD, and I really like it...a lot.

    I don't think I'm going out on too much of a limb
    by saying it's the best...

    I'm sorry that I didn't update my post, but someone has already

    Couldn't agree more with everything you said.

    Basenotes is like an oasis for me, and I'm sure many other men who feel the same way.

    Re: Free to a good home

    This is a great thread :) I probably have at least 5 or 6 bottles that
    I should post here, but all are masculine fragrances--not sure that many women
    would enjoy them.

    I will go ahead and post...

    Re: The Journey: Green, Bitter and Animalic

    Sorry to hear that Versace L'Homme didn't work out for you :(

    Even if you had the most recent formulation, I don't think the
    vintage versions would work for you either due to the leathery/birtch...

    Re: Chanel Pour Monsieur or the Concenree ?

    Does anyone else find it a bit ironic that Polge's best
    masculine fragrances (aside from the notable Egoiste)
    were composed for Tiffany and Ungaro, and not Chanel?

    Re: I think I am allergic to Guerlain Derby

    I ordered a small decant of the re-issue as well from
    the Perfumed Court about 2 months ago. I've worn
    it 4 times and it's almost gone now.

    Like others, I don't get the hype. It's a quality...

    Re: The Journey: Green, Bitter and Animalic

    Versace L'Homme

    I don't see it in either list of fragrances you have tried.
    I wouldn't classify it as animalic, but it is a dark, green, leathery chypre
    to my nose, and something you might like....

    Re: Chanel Pour Monsieur or the Concenree ?

    I think the reason the regular Pour Monsieur is not more readily available in the U.S.
    is all down to marketing. I'm not really sure why, but it seems that Chanel has made
    a decision to push the...
