Ha funny thing....i always put on a fragrance in the morning....take a shower around noon and slap some more on afterwards...my morning scent today was zino.....great stuff
I wanted to love this one....hasn't happened yet....it has been a minor miracle that I didn't blind buy it...I'll try it again soon but I'm not expecting too much folks....
The Shower Gel is Incredible by the way.....I use about 1 drop of it every week or so....it is sooooo good that I don't want to use it! Kind of a special occasion type of shower gel...is that weird?
Pollux- Interesting. I guess you have that risk when you play with things, but I'm willing to be more often than not it ends up a success although you are only batting .500 it sounds like...
So here is the deal. I had a 100ml bottle of Jardin du Nil (MPG) with a busted sprayer (Those new MPG bottles suck) and once I finished off my 90ml Pour le Jeune Homme, I cleaned it out and ripped up...
HAHA this is a funny thread!
Well I actually have just gotten into hot yoga recently and have been rocking Jardin du Nil by MPG (funky flowers of the Nile!) when I attend class. No fragrance is...
If you want the real deal in sexy black leather scents, go find some Kolnische Jucten by Regence. Trust me on this one.....
When MPG was looking like it was folding I freaked out... I hadn't even smelled the line but I'd heard so much praise I had to investigate. I was a recent college graduate, unable to find a job and...
How bout you just get Garrigue? That's the best of the three!
OK, WHO can give me a full line up of the lines at Takashimaya? I have a sister there who may be able to make a cover op into the store during lunch to snag some gems! but I need to plan this out!
Dont give up on Tabac Blond. The current version is still good!
Habinita though. OHH man! Thats a fragrance that should get more pub on here. A little harsh and off putting to start but the...
I'm up to no good again..buying blind again (mostly) and the following fragrances are locked into my sights:
Monsieur de Givenchy vintage
To the "Test List" they go! But out of The two Rochas which would you recommend?
I have smelled Eau de Rochas (thanks Xmen/Henri) and like it quite a bit. I'm wondering how the homme version compares. Which one is better?
I've got the EDT, vintage EDC, and the EDP....All are worth it. This is such a great fragrance and each variant has merits! Go nuts...
Habit Rouge edt 5 sprays, yey!
Track down some Garrigue by MPG as well if you want another good option in this category....
No where! MPG doesn't have a distributer in the US market right now and in a panic most of the supply on store shelves was snached up by people wanting backups! Good luck....
Cant believe there has been no mention of Bahiana by MPG yet! This one is delightful, though not much cheaper than Creed and harder to find....worth mentioning though!
I've got a chance to pick up a 90ml bottle of this fragrance but the store no longer has the tester! I generally love MPG fragrances but I need to smell this one. Who has experience with this...
I owe this fragrance some debt because it was my very first purchase in the fragrance world but have since evolved. Decent, but nothing great.
Maitre Parfumer et Gantier
UHHHH? April fools riiiiight?
So I take it that there would be little point in springing for a 20 year old bottle that may have degraded some through the years?
I've recently happened upon a store that has some PdN fragrances from the first couples years of the company. The boxes are clearly older and different from the current PdN lot and ...
That looks exactly like the bottle I bought 3 years ago. As far as I know that is/was the standard packaging at the time when it was discontinued.
I have less than 1oz of this left and really...
Eau de Iles- MPG
Might as well join in!
Honestly, there are very few notes I dislike. The notes that I do like are constantly changing. What I am after is the finest structurally sound fragrances. That being said, I'm hoping to get some...
I am going to treat myself to a couple Nicolai fragrances. I have tried New York and that will likely be one of the two but what should my other selection be?
Habinita is FANTASTIC!
I've seen it for a paltry $25 for 100ml online....it is almost a no risk buy. Check it out
Heritage EdT- Guerlain
My first time testing! yey!
On the PdT, very interesting indeed. Not sure how much that helps my cause but nevertheless thank you.
Can't wait to buy my bottle~
Thanks for the suggestions people...
I actually have Habit Rouge EdT and I don't get much leather from it. I'm being sent the vintage EdC right now so maybe that will have a different feel to it....
Bel Ami- Hermes
Perhaps you should seek out the Regence version as that is the one most discussed...
I just adore Shalimar EdP and EdC but really would like some leather in there. That would probably be my top fragrances, neigh, signature fragrance if I found it. Does anyone know of a fragrance that...
Haha....Cologne du 68 is my vote.
The Third Man- Caron
I really need to buy this. I keep spending my funds on other fragrances and by the time I see a bottle of the edp I can't in good conscience buy it!
Habit Rouge- Guerlain
Azzaro PH is one of the better designer fragrances in the last 30 years. Can't go wrong!
M7 Fresh- YSL
Which version of Mitsouko do you love most N_Tesla?
Devoid of Synthetics? May I nominate:
Route Du Vetiver- MPG
Just got a sample of this! I was all sniffed out by the time I happened upon Havana to much excitement. Got the SA to make one and I will look at this tomorrow I think!
I am excitedly waiting for a bottle of Vintage Heritage EdP to compare with my current version of the EdT. Can't wait. I'll dig this thread up when it comes. Thanks Moltening!
Pure Malt A*Men
Best version of A*men
Amber Precieux- MPG
90% full Testers of:
Amber Precieux- MPG
Glad I got Bahiana and a backup Amber Precieux
The ones saying you have to buy a brand new bottle are likely sales assistants in department stores who get the newest stock. They wouldn't have an interest in telling you to buy a brand new bottle...
Thanks certainly a good start!:rolleyesold:
Heritage EdP Vint
Habit Rouge EdC
Santos Eau de Sport
Jaipur PH EdP
Great! That was really worth reading......Thank you!
Great! now I can try it finally...
Habinita and Shalimar
And I dearly want Tabac Blond!
I had a Tilt-o-whirl package sent to me once and was really surprised anyone would send liquid like that. I actually have a really good feeling it was from FragranceNet actually..Nothing was broken...
I don't know where he gets all of it but the Xmen is GOOD! Can't pass up the goodness he dishes out....:wink:
Time to drop a few hundred on fragrances! YEY!
Below is a list of fragrances I am looking at as potential purchases. Most of these I have not smelled, or own in another incarnation. I am rather...
Eau de Iles- MPG
One recommendation for Racine so far and none for Route de Vetiver? If you ever become a vetiver nut, you must try Route de Vetiver. It's worth the trouble.
AHHHH! Thats nuts! Can you imagine being the one to purchase that container only to find 40% has evaporated and the fragrance is soured and degraded!? That is one hell of a risk...
I seen to remember Rochas had a little more going on than AA when I tested them. Both are better than average gourmands but Man has a rock solid reputation for a reason.
I only own one real leather fragrance but its a doozy- Kolniche Jucten- by Parfumes Regence is about a "leather" as they come. Lots of other great suggestions above as well.
IDYLL Eehh? That is some good stuff too! Too bad you didn't get a chance to snell the new stuff though. Expensive though. It is beautifully presented.
Interesting! Is the edp version only being released as a limited release?
Iris Blue Gris- MPG
Giorgio for Men 1.7
Red for Men 1.7
Both picked up for a paltry $30 total. What value! Liking both so far!
Bingo! Especially Rive Gauche..
Red for men- Giorgio Beverly Hills
I went with a 4 out of 10. I have some real treasures but I am certain that there is a world out there that I want to own but do not quite yet. I also need to purge around 1/3 of the collection.
The original version is perfect for me! All three are good.
While not pure Lavenders, Azzaro and Rive Gauche PH are fantastic scents and cheap!
I love Coromandel. I wish I could afford the $200 price tag! My favorite of the exclusifs by a wide margin.
I forced a number of my fiends to smell this as a gag. Everyone was blown away in a bad way. One buddy keeps telling me he's worried he smells like SM after his workout! I tell him dont worry, you...
I just tested Xeyrus Rouge today and that has some cedar in it for sure. I liked it but did not love it.
Patou Pour Homme
I think Macys is pretty reliable. Suppose anything can happen though. It is not uncommon for companies to dull down the potency so that certainly could be true. Either way, that is a bummer. Hope you...
Bigelows Apothecary in NYC carries this line and they can easily ship...call them up.
Amber Precieux- MPG
I think M7 might smell great with about 5,000 sweaty people in the vicinity.
I will agree with everyone else and say that it is great for just about any occasion!
Saw Giorgio for Men at TJ Maxx at $15 for a 1.6oz bottle and purchased it! Very exciting. So far so good. Girlfriend approves and I'm liking it so far although I have a bit of a stuffed...
Giorgio For Men (just purchased!)
Agreed. Put wheels on it and it will look like the transformers Hot-Wheels....
I'd go with Moustache but its pretty confusing which bottle to look for these days.
Jaipur and Envy are my top two from that list. Pi would be third. Good luck.
