Creed OV for me as well.
No and pass as well.
Bleu de Chanel. I can see what ChuckW was referring to. The reason I love this so much is because it's made in France. My previous bottles were not and inferior to this one. Funny, but true. This...
You are the one to place labels on fragrances based upon how you perceive them. Over time your tastes will evolve as you evolve.
GIT or Bleu de Chanel.
Clive Christian no.1 if I ever get in the position to. I actually love the smell of this.
You're not cheap as long as you're okay with the delivery mechanism of the juice.
When in doubt, get permission or simply post it, but do not get ruffled should it be removed. After all, we love interesting threads,but do want to remain amicable and friendly. Good question.
Bleu de Chanel - made in France. Love this stuff!
No matter what I think, it's appropriate to defer to the mods decision in matters of thread management. It isn't up to me and so it isn't my concern. We must trust and abide by their judgment for the...
Thanks for the info. Hednic, please let us know if you were able to go and if they have it. I'd like to know what your first thoughts are. Thank you!
Royal Vintage is a near identical copy.
Sometimes a fragrance can connect me to a special time and place, long since withered away. Many moons can grow the distance between those memories and a fragrance can transport you. However, for...
Current Fahrenheit. Sometimes the oily/petroleum comes through a tad much and would also categorize this as a love/love less but only on some days. So, its mostly a love.
Perhaps keep your top 10 and sell the rest?
It was pleasant with iris, cedar, and cashmere. I considered it but never didn't feel it was quite FBW.
No headache that I can recall.
Your journey will continue like many of ours.
I like it. It was my scent in Jr. High. The new stuff today isn't the powerhouse it was back then. Longevity is on the poor side for me today whereas it use to be a beast.
Vetiver 46. Smells like Gucci PH I
Wear it with anything you'd like. Yes, it will work.
Good gracious lad! I totally understand how you feel as I've done that, though not with LIDE. From memory, Lidge is no lightweight and I say lesson learned. I hope you're able to enjoy it in the...
I've not seen this one on the shelves. I've only seen Brut classic, though I think the likes of Brut or Old Spice are hardly "classic". They are nothing like their former selves. They use to be so...
To ban fragrances simply because some might be allergic would be like banning peanuts or peanut butter. Ridiculous! Thats why people should test and find what works for them.
I have problems with that fragrance too. No matter how I wear it, it doesn't sit well with me. Either makes me nauseous, headache, or both. This is why I'm not a fan of it.
I wear what I like regardless if I think I'll receive a compliment. Without sounding pretentious, I'd say most, if not all of my fragrances are pleasant. That being said, GIT for sure commands...
Paul Smith Men
Inensa, Essenza, Leather, and Oud are all good.
Guerlain Arsene Lupin Voyou.
I generally felt the same way. The parfum shocked me in a revolting kind of way. I'll sniff the reform as well, but as of now, prefer the EDT.
Think its a good fragrance and conceptually different, but never knew if I could get past the carrot note.
+1. Vetiver Extraordinaire is awesome.
I wear all fragrances both indoors and outdoors. Limiting a fragrance to indoors due to fear of rejection is about like being ashamed of your lover lol.
Try Guerlain Aresene Lupin Voyou. You'll be surprised!
I'm going to aquire the Dandy sample. However, Aresene Lupin Voyou is the best sandalwood fragrance I have smelled. I'll have to get it someday. I will test the Boise today. Heritage and Habit Rouge...
Thanks for your astute observations. I'll have to check it out. Is the dirty note still as present or is that toned down?
GIT but both are nice.
The original Feragamo in the red box
I have one more question about the sprayer. I like the way my sprayer sprays, however, when I start to depress it, it won't budge a micrometer. So I keep pushing harder until finally it makes a click...
It has been ages since I've smelled LIDGE. So long ago that I can't comment on similarities to Cd68. My memory is vague and hazy on that one. I remember the L'Instant a bit better as being a somewhat...
Derby is stellar. I want to sample Aresene Lupin Dandy myself.
Nothing that I can add that hasn't been said. However, this is highly subjective. Depends on what fragrance you're using, how many sprays, and who is around you.
I found terrible to be more similar to the original and would choose that of your list but would personally go for the original and if you wante an awesome niche version along the same lines then go...
I get nothing more that a vanilla that's reminiscent of cocoa butter. Has a slight ambery tone to it. Not my thing.
Interesting. Will it be at department stores or the boutique only?
Vanilla and tonka are usually my nemesis but hope it appeals to lovers of those notes. A pass for me I'm sure.
Bleu de chanel
Interesting bottle. Looks very apothecary like.
I stand behind my initial opinion regard the vintage Eternity. However, the latest 2014 bottle of mine has been tweaked a bit. It still has the green opening, but a little less of that mossy musk and...
Bleu de Chanel
Paul Smith Men
Congrats on this! Where did you find it?
Okay, I put only Ormonde Man on. I can smell it know, albeit I have to get my nose close. I swear I've smelled some other watered down swill smilier to this. While not offensive, it doesn't appeal...
I see, thanks Chuck! I really love the smell of this. I spray my wrist, chest, and shirt. Spraying on clothes helps it last a bit longer. This bottle has the best smell of all the bottles I've...
My Favs from Chanel:
Yes, what would be the significance of this?
I don't want to hijack this thread, but I also don't want to start another thread. I've ready that One Man Show and Krizia Uomo are identical. Which do you prefer and recommend a blind purchase?...
I'm not trying to be a downer, but I don't like the bottle either. Its been a very long time since I've been into TM. I currently own nothing from the house. I'm happy for the fans though. I've...
Probably legit. Three shots of that to the neck will certainly reach beyond 2 feet in the right circumstances. However, maybe her allergies were acting up due to the weather.
The only thing a gentleman can do and I agree!
Love the fragrance also.
Not sure I'm pumped about the notes.
I purchased a 5.0 oz bottle of the EDT tonight. This is probably my 4th time to purchase this. It has been reformed and weakened. I might catch flack for saying this, but I actually like it much...
5.0 oz bottle for the nth time. I'm committed this time!
I will test OM on its own. I'll have to if I want to smell it better. I've already received a complement on Sycomore. Everyone has made valid and interesting comments!
Well, perhaps this post is premature, but I've got Ormonde Man on my left hand and Sycomore on the right. Without going into how they actually smell at this time, I want to say that I'm struggling to...
The reason I like the EDT is for that metallic flinty note that comes off zesty. The EDP loses that and tends to be a little flat but smooth.
Like others, I'm tired of the "extreme" "intense", etc. flankers. What every happened to creating a masterpiece and allowing it to be. This makes me feel the original formula needed improving upon....
A pass for me. Doesn't interest me for some reason although there might be a gem in there.
Never. There isn't a point.
I evaluate a fragrance based on its olfactive merits. The bottle is secondary, but not a real deciding factor.
Bravo! The best answer yet!
I'm not sure, but one of these would qualify:
The ones that came to mind have been mentioned:
Dior Homme Eau. It stars out with the DNA of DH and ends with a smooth musk like AF Fierce. Also, the one sport is light and fresh.
Agree that cyprus musc is underrated. I am coveting my remaining juice and usually remove the cap to smell it, rather than to wear it. I might have 20 ml left.
It also doesn't help for those of us that buzz our hair as I do, or those that shave it. lol
I always usually spray on clothes. That way if I want to change or wear something else, its just a matter of changing shirts. This method does seem to help with longevity, but I actually think the...
One of the very few vanilla fragrances done right and that I actually like.
Guerlain Homme: For me, it has a kind of rubber note that ruins for me. Hard to explain.
Versace Eros: Had no idea it was a tonka bomb in the base notes.
CD Poison. A girlfriend a very long time ago wore it. Kinda makes me sick now lol.
Most: Spice and Wood
Least: Paul Smith Men (can be had on black market for $27, but I never buy that route).
Both are decent fragrances, but I might lean towards Varvatos. I've owned both at different times, but currently do not.
Nice to see you back again! Some great recommendations so far. It seems you're into gourmands, but I'll suggest Killian Straight to heavy for a nice boozy cedar fragrance for something different.
I love the note for adding greenness to a fragrance.
Anyone smell this yet? Please report if so.
Underrated: Paul Smith Men
From your list perhaps Puredistance M. May I recommend Memoir Man?
I've forgotten how much I love this stuff!!
I dislike all three as well. Sorry man.
