    Re: The (Almost) Identical Fragrances Thread

    Ferrari Black and Desire for a man.
    Note the similarities in the top, mid AND base notes.
    Disclaimer: This is how they smell on MY skin and it also might just be my nose!
    The above disclaimer is...

    Re: The (Almost) Identical Fragrances Thread

    Well, I did include a disclaimer, 'Is it just my nose'. So, if no-one else can smell the similarities, it IS my nose!
  4. Re: What's that ugly lingering note?

    Our downstairs storage room is lined with Cedar. It is quite an unpleasant place to be in for any length of time!

    Re: The (Almost) Identical Fragrances Thread

    Allure Homme Sport smells remarkably like Jeans by Tommy Hilfiger which in turn smells a lot like Happy by Clinique. Or is it just my nose??

    Re: What would Björk wear in a concert?

    Having seen some of her weirder video clips I would suggest that she might be wearing a very strong very off-beat MENS fragrance.......

    Yes, I too hate the Joop and Gautier fragrances. I can make a concession for Jocamo De Jocamo Rouge as it has that lovely Mint note.

    Couldn't agree more about not buying M& blind. It is a fantastic fragrance but it may not suit your body chemistry or worse still, you might just hate it's smell. I have to say though that my skin is...

    Re: Paco Rabanne XS for office

    There is the question of the quantity that you apply of course. A sensible level of the stuff will create a limited sillage range! Of course there are those who would consider that suggestion...
  14. Pheromones the odourless scent with a bad taste

    Is it just me or does the Pherotalk website resemble the letter section of Playboy? I haven't read Playboy since in over 20 years but I do remember the 'I bet you get letters like this all the time...
  15. Re: What is the most *unusual* and *unique* fragrance you have EVER tried?

    I think familiarity does breed contempt to some extent but every time I put on YSL Opium for men I wonder what other people must think when they smell it

    Re: What are some clean fresh scents?

    Live Jazz is certainly a smart choice. CK One (as sited above), can be a bit floral (which may not be fresh to all noses). I too am not a fan of aqua based frag's so I obviously wouldn't recommend...
  21. Re: Today's Experiment- attempt to recreate Dior Homme

    I hope I don't sound too cynical here but is it possible that the major frag' houses sometimes omit certain facts about their frag's to avoid them being copied (with any ease). I know there are...
  22. Re: Converting Splash Bottles to Spray Bottles

    I have done this. I got hold of an atomiser spray bottle and decanted by 'splash-on' into it. I now have an atomiser version of the same frag' but not in the same bottle!
    This may not appeal...

    Also, Paul Smith (London and Extreme) are laster on me.

    There is a definite 'force' operating in Male fragrances which is that there are Gay Male users of Male frags (and Female ones as well). I think some of the more subtle homo-erotic adverts for Male...
  26. Re: Why is Allure/D&G strong and Bulgari Black so

    I second the "Body Kouros" motion. I think there is a high degree of similarity in their 'darkness'.
    I always find the YSL frag's to have a very good lasting power on my skin at least.
