Atelier Vetiver Fatal (sample)
Lolita Lempicka Au Masculin
The AdP Leather, like the Oud is quite nice. I couldn't disagree more with the Tuscan Leather crowd. The AdP is much better. You made a wise choice my friend.
Declaration, Declaration d'Un Soir and Roadster
Green Irish Tweed
Frankincense scented incense cones. I have really been burning a lot of incense lately.
Bingo. Sweaty booty in a bottle, but in a good way.
The only Bond I own is Nouveau Bowery. Smells quite similar to Jo Malone's Lime, Basil and Mandarin but with slightly better longevity. I have heard it described as smelling like a lime popsicle and...
CK One-Shock is a cheap possibility
I love the incense accord in Black Amber but don't find it to be particularly churchy. For that particular vibe I would think you can't go wrong with the aforementioned Avignon, Sahara Noir and Full...
You do realize this thread is over four years old right?
For me, yes compliments from males do matter but they don't carry quite as much weight as a compliment from a female. I am appreciative of both but I simply like to hear them more from ladies.
At a very nondescript perfume store in an outlet mall. I think the place was called Fragrance Outlet (very imaginative). It's the type of place that only carries designer scents and has the...
Thanks guys. Exactly why I wanted to share my experience. I knew you guys would "get it".
Never smelled any of their stuff but I sure do love those bottles.
Reading Chuck's thread yesterday got me to thinking about Rive Gauche again. The first time I tried it I didn't love it but knowing that my tastes may change I would hate to want it after all of the...
I have purchased three bottles this month that probably won't be worn until cooler weather, Fille en Aiguilles, Sand Aoud and Eau Lente (blind buy but it was a good deal so I took a chance). Look...
As do I. Life is a special occasion.
Superman, Iron Man and Captain America (and Batman to a lesser degree) bottles are standouts. If these ever come to fruition hopefully D&G will stop at bottle design and outsource the actual juice...
I agree with this. I own both and while I personally prefer Musc Ravageur, Aventus garners far more compliments. Start saving and buy Aventus when it isn't a stretch for your budget. I don't care how...
In before this one gets locked.
On topic: I tried it on paper and liked it so I acquired a sample, then I tried it on skin and hated it. I can't really pinpoint exactly what it is that I don't...
I tend to agree. I am running dangerously low on my GIT and feel like I will probably buy a new one. It's a great workday workhorse.
Also, take a sniff of Tom Ford Plum Japonais at Neiman's.
1. Sonoma Scent Studio- Winter Woods
2. Frederic Malle- Musc Ravageur
3. Mancera- Sand Aoud
4. Naomi Goodsir- Cuir Velours
5. Hermes- Ambre Narguile
After my shower I went rummaging through some old samples and am trying Bond no.9 Little Italy. Not a fan so far.
Vetiver Extraordinaire (sample)
Everything. Were it not for Basenotes I would know nothing beyond the typical mid-range department store fare. Basenotes helped me to realize that fragrance is indeed an art form, even though quite a...
Geranium Pour Monsieur (sample)
+1 Winter Woods
Frederic Malle Musc Ravageur
Tauer Perfumes L'Air du Desert Marocain
Serge Lutens Fille en Aiguilles
Slumberhouse Sova (if you can find it)
Javanese Patchouli (sample)
Aqua Marine Toniq is gag-reflex inducing. There is a rancid seaweed note that turned it altogether unpleasant to my nose. But truth be told, I don't care for aquatics or Bulgari in general.
SOTE: Orange Sanguine (sample). Holy moley does that stuff disappear FAST.
I do and I love it. Plum Japonais is a favorite along with Tobacco Oud and Sahara Noir.
For my physical therapy session this morning
Ermenegildo Zegna Haitian Vetiver (sample)
SOTE: Van Cleef & Arpels Precious Oud (sample)
The Dior for sure
Florentine Iris from a sample
Lush Dirty body spray
Campfire and a saddle. Very masculine.
Histoires de Parfums
Creed and Tom Ford Private Blend are more widely offered and have quite a few scents to explore so you might...
Ramon Monegal Agar Musk from a sample.
Not on me. I love the smell but the edp disappears about as fast as the edt.
Also, Acqua di Parma's Colonia, Intensa and Essenza. Great smell, terrible longevity.
Haitian Vetiver (sample)
Another vote for Terre d'Hermes.
Minty, Absinthe and Licorice.... Lush Dirty.... Nasomatto Absinth... Lolita Lempicka Au Masculin
How about the clueless chime in?! I use a mini-fridge and and tend to believe that this actually gives my paltry amount of scents an advantage. I am probably wrong but I do not care. It seems to me...
This whole exchange is just funny...lol. Women, like men, enjoy very different scents. It will be virtually impossible to narrow it down enough to make even an educated guess as to what women, in...
If you want to try them for about half the price use Aedes de Venustas' sample service. Seven samples for $20 shipped and they carry the ouds about which you inquire. $36 is nuts.
Was in DFW last week and picked this up. Today was my first wear and I can say I'm glad I did. Very fresh...
Black Afgano from a store tester. Still like it.
I am a long way from being an aquatic connoisseur but maybe Creed's Erolfa?
Spicebomb easily. I don't like A*Men even a little bit.
Another for the Dior.
I honestly don't know if there are any that I couldn't live without. That should be tested soon however as my Green Irish Tweed is running alarmingly low.
Aquatic/semi-oceanic/calone... You sir just made me far less bummed out about missing out on this round. Still interested to read impressions though so keep them coming y'all.
It doesn't agree with me either. Not a fan.
I cannot speak to the Armani but the other three are good choices. Tuscan Leather is generally liked here but I am personally not a fan. I think there are much better options both from the Tom Ford...
I voted negative. While I like Interlude and Memoir (and Epic to a lesser degree), Reflection, Gold, Honour and Lyric grind on me.
At that price you'd be losing money if you didn't buy it.
Add me for the hat-trick. It took me forever to find samples of the first two and it cost more than I would have liked, but so glad I didn't buy blind like I wanted to. I don't think them bad scents,...
