Horizon by Lancome
Best: KAI II (discontinued now) and KAI Twin Razor Disposable (Sold at Daiso in Melbourne)
Worst - BiC single blade and BiC Metal
The Coral Skin Food is great! As soon as I finish my Nivea After shave balm, I am going to get a bottle of Skin Food. It has fleeting rose smell (very light) but I find it very pleasant.
I like how...
When I have time:
While I am showering: soak my Simpson Commodore pure badger in hot water;
GF Trumper's Rose Shaving cream;
Edwin Jagger DE razor fitted with the Feather DE blade;
+1 For Live Jazz.
You may also want to try Horizon by Lancome.
Polo Black has less darker notes. But to me it smells more generic.
On the other hand, the DB is much reacher, darker and overall is a much better scent.
BdC is the only one from my lot my wife compliments me on. The other one is, wait... Bogart PH. Unreal!
Ted Lapidus PH
Aqua Lavanda Puig
GF Trumpers for after shaves and shaving creams/soaps. Musgo Real for the "old school" cologne. For shaving brushes cannot beat Simpson.
Yes, love them all, a perfect combination, very excited.
Guerlain Homme and Bleu de Chanel
Rochas Lui or Ted (Lapidus) if you can find one.
Floris No. 89 pre-reformulated, Trumpers Rose shaving cream and a Simpson Commodore!
2. Habit Rouge
3. Givenchy Gentleman
With the honourable mention of:
4. Polo Black
I just happened to be at Henry Bucks on Collins Street today and they had Santal for $169 (EdT). I think they were in old packages.
I was actually looking for Floris No. 89 (vintage) but...
Versace - Blue Jeans.
Sweet as and gave me headaches.

Do you still have Ungaro III? Was it the pre-reformulated bottle? I am interested...
There are hundreds of more boring scents around and they don't take so much beating here as Bleu. Its magic works, look at the sales!
Thanks Renato, I might try some of the pre-shave oils mate.
Not sure if I am using what you called an "average" shave creams or soaps. Currently I am using Italian Palmolive (menthol), Trumper's...
I am in my fourth year of trying to find an "ultimate" shaver. Cannot count all of the Gillettes and blades I tried over the years.
Fat boys (2 off), slim and black beauty adjustables, various...
Another vote for Coral Skin Food. Absolutely love it as an aftershave. And I agree with the previous poster, you only need a very tiny amount.
I got some skin food samples from Ludlow's here in...
MpG Parfum D'Habit.
It's a bit dark but definitely is "in your face" kind of thing...
Bleu de Chanel
Apologies, double post
YSL - no brainer
Exactly my thought!
Tom Ford Neroli Portofino. Bleu de Chanel is a masterpiece comparing to this one.
1. Agua Lavanda - Puig
3. Cacharel pour Homme
Ungaro III vintage
Versace Blue Jeans for me.
BTW, Anyone wants it (free to good home, but you pay for postage). Posted in Australia only
Well, since you are hooked on Balenciaga, there is another one for you - Portos (if you can find one...)
Try before you buy this one. Seriously...
there is nothing like it...
Floris 89 (not sure if I am ready to outlay AU$158 for an original 100ml bottle. There are only few left, time is running fast, I know),
L'Instant EDP, one day maybe...
AdP Colonia - timeless...
1. MPG Parfum dHabit
2. Ungaro III
3. Floris 89
If it were 5, then I'd add:
4. Aqua di Parma
5. Agua Lavanda by Puig
Accidentally, there is the original one for sale at the moment in Sales forum (but only limited to Australian buyers)
Hey guys (and gals),
Just posted few items in the For Sale section.
I was wondering if anyone can enlighten me on how I can post frags to overseas via Aust. Post / other. I know that it is not...
My answers are above...
Man, I thought it only happened to me! I placed an order on the 15 December and still am waiting. I queried the delay with them by e-mail and they told me it's on it's way. However they did mention...
Good choice, however I personally prefer Colonia.
Also, may I recommend YSL Live Jazz? Enjoy your stay here mate...
1. MpG Parfum d'Habit
And the rest:
Acqua Di Parma Colonia
YSL Live Jazz
Colonia, the original and the best!
Agua Lavanda is still in production...
Blue Jeans of course!
Aqua Lavanda by Puig.
I feel for you.
Always exchange money before goods!
It's a previous release bottle, not the latest.
But i think it is 50 ml for 49.95
I tried XS (the unboxed one) the other day from the Chemist Warehouse. Didn't last an hour on me.
Usually it lasts and lasts. Not sure but I think it was off / old stock. That's a first time I had...
Ted Lapidus pour Homme (1978)
Exactly my thoughts. Very well described, aaz.
Yesterday I saw Guerlain Vetiver 50 ml bottles (the ones that are in boxes as shown "end of the 90's") for AU$49.00 in a local pharmacy.
Is it a good price? Should I get one? What do you guys...
Some of my all time favourites:
Balafre by Lancome
Original Ungaro III
My wife ;)
Sorry for a double post (forgot how to delete the previous one)
My wife ;)
I am looking forward to my newly purchased Rochas Lui.
AdP Colonia (the best out of three IMHO), Guerlain L'Instant, Habit Rouge EdC (if I can find one here), Gucci Nobile and the original formulation Ungaro III.
But firstly I need...
It's like a good bottle of whisky on sale, nothing wrong to pay less for a better product :)
And yes, I have both the aftershave and EdT.
Too strong, too much vetiver note and it is too linear.
I tried it twice. Wore it on my wrist for an hour and both times tried to get rid of it under hot water immediately after coming...
MpG Parfum D'Habit with some spare change left.
You are not alone.
I just don't get it. It reminds me (top notes) of Vetiver Hombre by Adolfo Dominguez which I didn't like and sold. (I am not a big fan of Vetiver).
+1 on RG. I am asking myself the same "Why?" question. Cannot wait to finish the bottle. Very overrated (to my taste, of course). Makes me feel that I am wearing Brut and everyone around me knows...
First of all apologies for hijacking the post.
I need an opinion: Is Blue Jeans similar to Body Kouros? I have BJ and like it very much. I also liked BK on a card and was thinking to add it to my...
It is an old formulation in 90 ml bottle. I knew you gonna love it mate. Nothing else smells like it.
A big thanks to Renato who shared his knowledge of where I could get MPG in Melbourne a few...
Hi Trufflehunter, your luck may change if you hurry up!
As I posted some time ago my local Chemist Warehouse is selling boxed Coriolan for $29.95 for 100ml. They had the last bottle today on a...
Card posted today. Tell us what you think
Moved to the Items for Sale thread.
Apologies for any inconvenience.
I am in Melbourne and I can offer you a spritz (only a small one) of my cherished PdH (original, thanks Renato for a tip! It 's a shame really that you've opted for Racine though. I tried them all in...
Mate, you are just unstoppable
I suggest Acqua Di Parma Colonia. Very classy
They sell Coriolan for $140!
3 weeks ago I bought 100 ml bottle (splash) at My chemist warehouse for 29.95.
Thanks for sharing. I bookmarked them for future references (and maybe purchases)
+1 Absolutely. Get it if you can. Cannot say the same for Givenchy Gentleman though. Juice is far superior (as it should).
SOLD to the fellow Australian Basenoter.
I voted yes,
Both Quorum EdT and after shave are a permanent feature on my dressing table.
Should have kept Balafre and Ted empty bottles though.
Parfum d'Habit by MPG.
Terre is way too strong and in your face kind of frag. Definitely for a special occasion. I cannot see me wearing Terre in the office.
RG is definitely more versatile.
Price drop, now $50 plus P&H. Don't want it to collect dust on the shelf.
Balafre by Lancome
Havana by Aramis
Portos by Balenciaga
I paid a visit to Australia Post office today and inquired regarding the above. I was told that it is true for all parcels sent by air (plane), however, Australia Post permits sending...
Habit Rouge sounds good to me. Could you check how much the courier would cost? Shouldn't be overly expensive, should it?
If it is possible then we'll send each other a frag that we...
Hi Dr. Rudy,
Please refer to the attached link for the postage prices. Take your pick (I selected to Prospect as I understood it is not far away from the city)
Edited, swap option added.
Hello fellow aussie Basenoters.
I am selling Terre eau de toilette, Vap. spray (unwanted gift). 100 ml 90-85% full with box. It is just too powerful for me and my liking.
Asking $70 plus P&H. ...
Some pharmacies here in Melb are selling YSL Jazz for 39.95. Also chemist's warehouse is selling Coriolan for 29.95

Nah, my favourite would be Berkley Gulp!
Quorum by Antonio Puig
I tried AdP Colonia, Intensa and Assoluta last week and kind of got interested in other EdC scents. Like 4711, Roger & Gallette Extra Vieille. I would like to try more of the same. What are...
I bought a bottle of Coriolan in Melbourne about a month ago. They still are selling it in some places here.
My Chemist at Chadstone sells Guerlain Coriolan 100 ml EdT Splash for $29.95.
I am also in Melb. Check this site out. Stocks Annick Goutal amongst others - Duel for
example (not cheap at 135 Aus a pop). Also carries one of my favourite lavanda scents - Agua...
Balafre by Lancome and Ted Lapidus PH.
Balenciaga Portos, Ted Lapidus Pour Homme and Lancome Balafre if you can find them!
Stick with Ungaro III
Wow! Thanks guys for all the replies. Now I know what to look for.
Cheers to all
