Yeah, you know, fire and brimstone and Hell. No he won't smell too great.
After some research I found that Jesus wears frankincense and myrrh.
The devil will no doubt have something sulfur based.
Thanks yellowcedar, I will check them out for sure.
Hi, I am looking into making my own lotion. Anybody have any tips on how to exactly or where to go to get the ingredients? Any input would be appreciated. I am a complete newbie to this. Thanks
Thank you kind people for your responses.
After seeing brief posts on the greatness of Mazzolari Lui I finally tried a sample of it from LuckyScent. Hot diggity dog! This has got to be the most macho, animalic, kick rear scent that I have...
I have never smelled SDV but Vanilla in general makes me nauseous. I can't imagine that I would like it. Tom Ford's Tobacco Vanilla made me want to wretch. It was nice at first but evolved into blech!
Chanel Pour Monsieur Concentree
Herrera for Men Sensual Vetiver
I gave away too much Ambre Canelle
Chanel PH Concentree
Bois du Portugal
Kiehl's Original Musk
I don't know about Xeryus but I love Gentleman but it lasts about 30 minutes on me. Very frustrating after reading how it is supposed to last so long.
Redneck Perfumisto and Lian. Thanks for the suggestions I will have to try the MPG and I have a swap in the works as I type for Jicky.
shalashaska, to be honest with you I don't know if it has aoud in it or not but our very own abubakr_al-misky has Mukhallat Emirates and I love it. It seems like most people like it and it is very...
If this thread isn't played out I am:
good sense of humor
fairly reserved until I get to know you
hot looking :D (not really, but passable)
Thanks for the response everybody.
I have some sinus problems and this could be a God send. Does anybody know if it works if one nostril is slightly blocked?
I would like to get a diffuser. Where is the best place to get one? Thanks.
Hi all, I am really interested in ambergris. What would be the best way to experience it and how would I get it? Any info would really be nice. Thanks in advance.
Not to offend but I was actually nauseated by CPH. Typically I'm not crazy about vanilla and this one was no exception. Flat, as was mentioned before.
Hi Gabe and welcome to the madness. I'm a newbie too but I am having a lot of fun with the Mid Eastern perfumes as well. As you say, they are so much more dense and interesting.
Taz, I don't know (shrugs). I got it from Simon. As Shultz on Hogan's Heroes used to say, "I knooowww NOTHING"!! I sure do like it though. I am almost getting to the point that I don't care what...
Ok. Thanks Simon. You are informative as usual.
Hi Dimi. You have to let me know your secret. You get all the free LP No. 9, the cool bottle and juice for next to nothing, and win the contest for the ouds. You're hurting me. :D I got a sample of...
Thanks everybody. Hi nenugal. The only Montale oudhs that I have tried are Black Aoud and Attar. I love them both. I love heavier scents so I don't mind either of them in just about any situation. I...
A friend gave me a bottle about a year ago. I ended up throwing it in the trash.
Hi folks. My name is Bill and I am definitely an amateur and maybe always will be. When it comes to deciphering different notes I can get a very few but not too many.You guys blow me away in your...
Ok, ok. I wrote that I thought that Aramis 900 smelled like I smeared poop on me. :eek: I love it now. Hmmm, what does that say about me? :wink:
I must say that I get a little embarrassed to give my opinion as I don't really have a very discerning nose but to put it in really minimalistic terms, in my opinion, the Ungaro is dirty (in a good...
You know, Dimitri what you need to do is to send it to me and let me check it out. I would definitely be able to tell you exactly what you have there. :wink:
Seriously though, way to go. :thumbup:
I didn't buy anything but while at Nordstrom at South Coast Plaza (Orange County) I was given 4ml samples of the entire new Tom Ford line and a mini of Lalique Encre Noire.
Hey, thanks for the tips. I'll have to go there or at least whenever I can tear myself away from the beach.
Hey guys, I am in Orange County for a visit and I was wondering if there are any places to go for scents besides South Coast Plaza? Any input would be really appreciated. I am digging the beach. A...
All I know is that the only place I won't wear Kouros is at work. Otherwise I have had a lot of women respond favorably. Like, "Oh my, is that you that smells so wonderful? What IS that?" I always...
To this nose it is just plain offensive. Very harsh and loud. :eek:
OMG! Don't tell me that you do that! :eek:
Ok. So where do you live. That doesn't sound very good. :eek: :D
Fresh cut grass
Freshly overturned earth (dirt)
Fresh home made bread?
I don't know if it's my body chemistry or what but for me its:
Tabac Blond and Dzongkha
Green Irish Tweed
Silver Mountain Water
You know, I don't pretend to have the most sophisticated nose in the world but MKK and Kiehl's are remarkably similar to me. As you say, beautiful, big, and rich but dirty body parts and nasty? No...
Yes, Musc Koublai Khan and Kiehl's Musk are very similar and what a price difference!
I got Dzing! and Chypre Rouge. Dzing! was ok but just didn't make it. Chypre Rouge was nasty. Too sweet and strange and no longevity. To heck with blind buys. I like the sense of adventure but its...
Grant, you rock!!! Thanks!
Going to be Ajmal Aqhawan
That is funny. Heritage is the first one that popped into my head. Great minds think alike, huh, Mike?
I listened to the hype and got it. Its ok but it totally disappears in minutes and ended up not really keeping my interest anyway. I have a bottle that sits and collects dust. One of those buys I...
Not too long ago I gave my nephew Live Jazz, Quorum, Paco Rabanne, Curve, and a few others that I can't remember. Good riddance.
Don't tell me then, you giggled when you saw the gaggle of gay geese? Nyuk, nyuk.
Quite an article. I had actually seen it before.
Recently it was a fairly warm day and I was out running some errands and put on a few sprays of Kingdom. I think that I remember some folks talking about it being too much for warm weather, well, and...
Hey Renato, what a great story! You bought it at a hardware store?
You know, I have never heard that saying before. You've got to tell me Mike, how gay is a goose? :D
Nothing personal Zorro08, but I find Erolfa like a lot of other Creeds, pretty average. Don't get me wrong, I love some of them. Bois du Portugal, Ambre Canelle, Acier Aluminum, and Orange Spice but...
While I can appreciate your pain knightowl, having your beloved juice change like that on you, I have never tried the "old" Yatagan but I love the "new".
Guerlain Habit Rouge
Guerlain Heritage Edp
I recently revisited Guerlain Heritage in the edt and wondered what in the heck I had been thinking before when I thought, "meh, this is just ok". Well it knocked my socks off this time and after...
I am thinking of buying from Scentsations of Troon in the UK. I was wondering if they are a reputable place or not. Thanks for any info.
Ok, once again, I am going to show my ignorance on BN. What is a rent boy?
ROFL :grin: I triple dog dare you.
You've got that right!
I smelled PS tonight and I need to know from folks in the know, Is it really similar to Ambre Canelle or is my sniffer going completely haywire? Especially at first I thought that they were a lot...
M7 comes up on the sales and swap threads on Basenotes fairly regularly. Try that and good luck.
Ok, I am going to show my ignorance but what exactly is wearability in a cologne? I see some folks even putting that they like certain scents but won't use it because it is not wearable. If you like...
Hey Jim, I gave it about a month or two and its not as bad but not worth the misery. I haven't heard anyone else having any problems it is absolutely the only one that effects me that way. Habit...
L'Air du Desert Marocain
I recently bought Stardust blind after all the press here for it. It is a nice frag but when I put it on I immediately started violently sneezing and my lungs tightened up. I am just curious but has...
Yeah its pretty amazing that you have to pull teeth to get some stuff here and if I'm not mistaken the Edp is about 3 times higher priced than the Edt. "Shudder".
studdg: IMHO it is much better...
Thank you all kindly. I got a sample vial and to me it is a different animal than the edt. Deeper, richer, and longer lasting. The edt is gone in minutes. I may have to to South Africa. :shocked:
From what I can see, they only have the feminine version. Boo hoo.
I have looked and all I can find is the Edt. Where in the heck can I find some? Thanks for any info.
Ajmal Aqhawan. Yeowsah!
Hi Grant, I tried that but I get the dropdown menu but it won't take anything that I click on. It stays at default. Thanks, Bill
BTW; you rock!
I can't leave feedback or add a custom icon to my wardrobe. I get the drop down with all of them but when I click on one it doesn't highlight it or put it on my page.
Same here. :huh:
YSL Pour Homme Haute Concentration.
I have never tried Declaration but yep, Eau d'Hermes is really nice. I don't understand why its considered so dirty by so many but good stuff.
Its ok but to me it is just "pretty average".
Couldn't agree more. If you like it wear it! If you don't. Don't.
By the way, Welcome!
quickly becoming one: Versace L'Homme
Can I add Ambre Canelle and Black Orchid too? Please, can I?
Over the past month or so I have occasionally gone into to my friendly, neighborhood Gordman's. They have had tons of Versace L'Homme. I would always get a spritz and would not be crazy about the top...
Its not Marshall's but at Gordman's in Kansas City I have seen lots of different Blvgari, Azzaro, and Versace including L'Homme that I picked up. A 100ml for $23.00. Nice, really nice stuff. It did...
I am not all that crazy about Himalaya but hey, its all about personal preference. You gotta go for what "you" and/or a SO likes. My favorite is Ambre Canelle. It is different and it is not a BN...
I've said it before and I will say it again. "Grant, you are the man!" Thanks.
C. diff rocks huh? You haven't lived until you have smelled that. I liked LL until I wore it for a day. Different body chemistry I guess.
I know that when I am depressed my sense of smell and taste are, shall we say, depressed as well. However when I am depressed the last thing that I want to do is put on cologne.
Hey, I work in a hospital so I pretty much smell it all and can deal with it but after wearing Lolita Lempicka Au Masculin for a day I wanted to spew. Sickeningly sweet.
Hey thenmarcher, I have never smelled either one but I can say whatever works for you is what you need to do unless it makes you or those around you have an asthmatic fit or vomit. No shame you know?
Just got some more today! It completely rocks! I can't imagine not having it. Two big thumbs up.
I never knew that. :o Thanks. Nice that someone is looking out for us poor folk. :D
