I own a decant of this one and sadly I can only see myself wearing this in the scorching heat since the longevity and projection are terrible on my skin. I was really looking forward to this one and...
They are very different but if I had to pick only one I would be hard pressed not to choose the ADP. It is a very interesting mix of citrus and oud. If you are a fan of the less in your face oud...
I got 5ml of each of these coming and I am really looking forward to these especially Imperial Tea.
I am loving Apple Brandy, I just wish it was giving me more performance.
I wear own 4 pairs of Levi's and I chose GIT, go figure...
I would go with Oud Wood.
Memoir Man by Amouage is an amazing fragrance that is one of the most complex and brooding fragrances that I have ever had the privilege of getting my nose on.
and Vetiver 46.
For the last three days I have been going with Herod and all I can say is wow!
I would probably go with Windsor.
Even though I am not completely sold on MI, GIT and Aventus are two of the best fragrances money can buy IMO.
MDO I would go with Vetiver, Serge Lutens I would go with Chergui or Fumerie Turque, Frederic Malle my beloved Musc Ravageur and Amouage gets Memoir Man.
I actually enjoy BDP quite a bit. I think if given the chance you will be blown away by Spice and Wood, which I consider to be a masterpiece.
New Haarlem and take a look at my top ten. Ambre Narguille, Pure Malt and 1270 are really good too.
Of the two I would go with Platinum Egoiste.
GIT and Aventus are two excellent choices IMO.
I would go with LDDM as a great starting point that you definitely will not be disappointed in.
I agree, Chergui is another scent like Back to Black that if you overspray it becomes way too heavy on the powder that every one keeps talking about. I owned and loved Back to Black twice but I just...
MI projects and last longer on my skin.
Tonka Imperiale is amazing and I miss it!
add L'Humaniste and his list can't get any better!
Dude... Am I the only one that gets a caramel apple out of this one? All of this love for Ambre Narguille yet everyone seems to be at best indifferent with this scent. I love this from sampling on...
Way too many to mention but I would have to derail the hype trains that are TDH, LIDGE and Egoiste to start with. I know, I know the beloved Egoiste, it just has this sour note that turns my stomach.
I recently picked a decant of Ore extrait and this has catapulted into my top ten, as always thank you.
Uden reminds me quite a bit of Allure Homme from Chanel. Allure Homme smells a little more synthetic but it can easily be a much cheaper alternative.
I thought it was a good fragrance but it lacked that wow factor. It sounds like you may like Norne from the Slumberhouse line.
Thanks, I already swapped off my sample of it. Wasn't really to my liking at all. However, I absolutely adore Santal Noble but does anyone else has longevity and projection problems with this one...
Herod by Parfums de Marly
I feel the same way about most pepper based scents with the exception of Honour Man which I find absolutely stunning!
I agree whole heartedly. Certain scents less is really more and this is definitely one of them.
I was wondering what your thoughts were on Herod by Parfums de Marly. Now, I don't buy into the hype train that occurs with a lot of the more mainstream type of niche fragrances but this one has...
1740,1725 and 1899 are all at least decant worthy. Ambre 114 is my go to amber that I don't think will ever be without.
Idole Lubin and Silver Factory are two scents that are very similar and you should really like.
It is a very big crowd pleaser so as long as you don't overspray. Three tops with this one. I cannot even believe I said only three sprays!
Yes, I did. I have a really bad cold so I can't smell anything right now so I can't revisit it really. With the initial impression I wasn't very wowed by it. Have you tried this?
I really like Sahara Noir but I love Avignon.
I would say go for Dior Homme and welcome.
As an oversprayer it broke my heart to get rid of my 1861!
Really want to sample some of this line.
Sucks, you only came away with a couple of winners. One piece of advice about Interlude though is to spray away from the front of your neck and you will leave an amazing scent trail that will...
I actually am quite fond of it. However, I don't think I will ever pick up a bottle. This fragrance is most closely associated with that douchey type of arrogant clean cut pretty boy who can't take...
I was at a strip club last Thursday and a Japanese stripper licked my neck and told me I smelled really really good while I was wearing this scent. Needless to say stripper or no stripper this is in...
I love Bois d'argent! This one is a definite keeper! Just like how Buysblind said you have to go heavy with the sprayer. When I did? Wow! This one is getting added to my rotation, thanks bro. I...
That's not heavy at all!
Bruckner Aoud by M. Micallef if I am ever lucky enough to get my nose on. I am also looking for Andy Warhol by Bond No. 9 and last but certainly not least Pardon by Nassomatto.
Couldn't have said it any better myself. Royal Oud will definitely be more wearable and recieve more compliments from the average nose that we encounter on a daily basis. While Memoir Man will...
Just got the second part of my haul and I am really liking Aqua Universalis for a work type summer scent. I am also really enjoying Memoir Man quite a bit more than I remembered. While I do...
Wearing a sample now and all I can say is wow! This is some really good stuff. This might be my replacement for when I run out of my beloved Tobacco Vanille. Luckily, I don't need to make this...
That sucks, I just bought a decant of the edt, which I really enjoyed only to find the edp which I just got a sample of to be the far superior scent!
Santal Noble and Santalum would be my top two followed by Tam Dao edp/edt.
Right now I am two hours into my Tabac Rouge sample and the similarities to Tobacco Vanille are very strong. This one doesn't seem to project as much. This one could be a contender since it seems...
I really enjoy Pardon. However, I feel that you have an excellent fragrance on your hands with Ore, enjoy!
I am waiting for Por Monsieur, Memoir Man and Sushi Imperiale. Unfortunately, the only scent I am digging even a little is Santal Noble. Damn... Oh well, back to the drawing board.
I would go with DHI since I am not a big patchouli fan.
Ugh, it looks like I am going to have to revisit Ore.
Even though I don't agree with some of your rankings, this is a great thread and I can't wait for your next rating.
I am really digging Pardon, going to be getting in on a split soon.
Which one of the two would you pick?
Which one of the two would you pick?
I thought I had found my go to cacao fragrance in LIDGE. I just recently sold my bottle again because I could not get past the patchouli bomb in its drydown. I just recently revisited Pardon by...
I have a sample of Odin 10 Roam coming. I will let you know when I get it.
Thanks, good luck to you too.
Noir De noir in a total landslide.
Nobody has any experience with these scents that hasn't chimed in?
Tam Dao is a fantastic cedarwood/sandalwood fragrance that is worth every penny IMO. Liquid Night is a great warm weather evening scent that I will almost certainly be picking up soon.
Just got my sample of 1899 today. I really like this one but I am not sure if I like this enough for a decant. I will sample again in the coming days to figure out if this one is decant worthy.
Wow, all of these responses are making me very anxious for my samples to arrive!
thanks for the feedback!
Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen! As always, you folks have been a fantastic guide to me in my fragrance journey. I am looking for some feedback on my recent little sample haul. I just ordered...
You aren't the only one.
Noir de Noir is a masterpiece IMO and definitely what you are looking for.
Avignon is by far the better fragrance.
1270 has a great opening and before you know it it's gone. If you want a really good boozy scent try Fusion Sacree. This is the best boozy scent I have ever gotten my nose on. While it is still...
Fusion Sacree is really impressing me right about now!
Slumberhouse Ore kills this one IMO.
Straight to heaven.
I am glad that my vote can contribute to the DHI landslide.
So many to mention so little space but I would go with Black Orchid. It has this rotten fruit accord that every time I smell it my stomach starts turning.
Ambre 114 is my favorite followed by Ambre Precieux and LDDM.
this is one that I have been looking to revisit.
I have a decant of this up for swap. I really want to like this but I just don't.
This is a fantastic blind buy that many a Basenoter's will gladly take off of your hands if this is not to your liking. Great fragrance, even better price. Enjoy this one, I am sure you will.
How about Bois D'Argent?
I have been meaning to try this for quite some time, thanks for the tip!

Chanel Pour Monsieur Concentree sounds very interesting to me, thanks!

I have tried Caravelle Epice by Frapin and even thought the nutmeg is really good in that fragrance I would have to say that the cumin overwhelms it and makes it unwearable IMO.
Hello boys and girls, I have found a new note that isn't so new. I have fallen in love with nutmeg again. I just got a sample of Straight to Heaven again today and I have to say while I really like...
LDDM and Sycomore are both fantastic options within your price point. I would never be without either of these two masterpieces in my wardrobe!
Ooh, that's a tough one. Nice " Core 6 ". If I had to have a " Core 6 " it would be one daytime, one night time for warm weather and one for cooler weather and two for year round. My cooler...
I am looking for decants of Bond No.9 Andy Warhol, Epic Man and Royal Oud.
