is that when you say: NO, THANKS?
Patchouli 24 is my favorite from Le Labo and has one of the best dry-downs. Smokyyyyyyyy
Ylang is a beautiful woody mossy floral and I'm planning on getting a bottle
Lys 41 is big time white...
So you launched a personal attack at me by quoting my post about civility then posting "Before anyone lectures anyone on "civility"...they should take a good look in the mirror, and realize that...
I'm surprised you're not banned yet! David is sharing something he discovered with other members, if you don't like his views, either be polite about it or don't comment!
We're not blind, we can...
Here is a fragrantica link:
Hot flashes... they happen!
Thanks for the suggestions... I actually own all of the ones you mentioned above except the Diptyque.
Thanks for the feedback... I was hoping you'd say "similar in that they both smell like smoking oud chips" because I love the smokiness in La Fumee Arabie.
I wasn't very impressed with any...
how is the oud note compared to La Fumee Arabie by Miller Harris?
Thank you Salim for giving ebay sellers a bad name...
First - you misrepresented the item you're selling.
Second - you refunded the payment and asked the buyer to keep the item which is one of...
I'm not sure how they got a hold of a few bottles but it's available here:
but I'm not blind buying!
To me, maybe the "cool" pine note is in common between this and BB... but I don't think the two should be compared!
The name refers to the Moroccan City "Essaouira"
anyone else tried this one?
Order from the store located near you... North Americans from Luckyscent and Europeans from FIF or other European sites, otherwise expect delays and "very" crappy shipping services. If you have a...
Haaa! Nice to see someone else here using the Axe Deep Space shower gel. Spicy cardamom and minty freshness is what I get from this... would be nice if they can make a fragrance that smells like it.
Fleeting because the "perfumers are using natural materials" is what some people are saying! So from now on we'll have to sacrifice the whole experience of wearing a fragrance if we want to use...
Today I tried Valais and actually liked what I'm smelling and I thought FINALLY a new release that's interesting! Since I'm not very good at describing scents I will copy/paste the description from...
I'm surprised you didn't find this one more on the feminine side!!! I find it sweet/fruity/floral... Dry down is nice but I'm still not sure if I should get a full bottle, I guess I'm not convinced...
Extremely annoying especially when the comment bumping the thread is irrelevant to the whole discussion.
I get some similarity with Sycomore but only in the basenotes when Smoke for the Soul becomes a skin scent and it's about to disappear!
Go for it! It's complex, masculine, leathery, smokey, earthy and has some dry fruit notes. An excellent fragrance, one of my favorites!
Rania J - Lavande 44 ... released sometime in 2012 but to me it's the best Lavender I have ever smelled. Actually, all the Rania J releases have been "best finds" for me. An amazing perfumer who...
:shocked: you're joking right?
tell him if he's thinking about reformulating his fragrances he should give them new names or add "NEW & IMPROVED" to the name once a fragrance is reformulated!
but what do you guys mean when you say "modern" ? Does it mean Bentley Absolute has something in common with most designer masculines released these days?
Thanks for the feedback!
I agree with this... I also prefer the Zegna! Tom Ford Patchouli Absolu is dark and gloomy while Javanese is bright and happy.
Please try Bond no 9 Coney Island and let me know what you think! It has an aquatic/ozonic base that makes it "disturbingly" disgusting! "rotting fish/biomass" is a good description for it. ...
It's being compared to Armani Privé Oud Royal on Fragrantica and that's not a bad thing!
LOL... Do I sense some attitude problem here? I never said that my posts speak on behalf of anyone!
The way you say "this is absolutely the reference" makes it sound like you are a...
Are you saying that because you're also smelling the harsh woody notes or because you've seen me post about not liking those synthetic sharp notes on the forum all the time?
In this frag the amber...
yes yes yes
Synthetic dry woody notes overdose in this one ... I don't like it at all!
LOL... Thanks guys!
the bottle is made of dark glass, if you hold a flash light to it you should be able to see through!
I tried some of the creed perfumed oils. I felt like the whole idea behind the oils was to moisturize the skin, unlike the creed EDP or the EDT which you wear to "perfume" yourself. Yes the oil...
I agree with the above and I don't think these Bond attars will have any chance in the middle east trying to compete with the big brands and especially at those prices!
But outside that region and...
so the gazillion releases by Bond no.9 weren't enough, they had to release different variations too!!!
So how do they compare to the EDP's ?
I guess it's real then! Yaaaaay more Bond no.9
Am I the only one thinking this news is fake?
Well, I'm sure that building is cockroach free now
Indeed! I was interested in sampling some of their releases but as soon as they came out with this peepee gimmick I lost interest... what a turn-off! What's next? What's the sequel.......
Palmbeach is running a split of Santal 33... 50ml @ 84$ ... but it's taking too long to fill!
ROFL... and 3 people dined at that price!!!
Thanks again Hednic... here's more good news, it went through New York customs then out the same day.
And finally... Delivered in about 6 days!!! Wow, someone got it right this time!
Kobe... but to me, no xerjoff is FBW!
Thanks Hednic. My order has already been shipped and I can track it with USPS!
There is also a Jacomo Oud for men!
This is what he says about it:
"Now this was a surprise I didn't see coming. They were launching two new fragrances and one of them promised something I...
That's good to hear... I will have to make sure everything is in stock!
Yeah, DHL Paket sucks I know but I'm willing to try my luck with these guys, hopefully I'll have better luck with this...
Some people were getting sick of all the "bleu" and the "noir" attached to fragrance names so here you go, Rodriguez solved the problem for you by using both colors in one name... This has got to ...
how long does it take before they ship orders?
Looking great there, Foustie :)
You can always edit the picture with MS paint , crop , resize then post again!
WAIT a minute.... your real name is EMMET ??? looking good there Emmet Brickowski!!!
Thanks for confirming
They blame DHL and tell you there are no other options or it's too expensive using Fedex or UPS or DHL Express... Yes it can be expensive for individuals but for a business that ships...
Hopefully I'll have better luck with that other German site!!!
The shipper contacted DHL to send it to the correct "country" and somehow DHL decided to return it to Essenza-nobile in Germany! I'm not sure how something like that can happen but I already gave...
or maybe this:
Mauboussin M Generation for men... the Bottle is futuristic too
Whenever I see Norlimbanol in a fragrance description I steer clear! Thanks mumsy :)
By the way, I believe the correct name for that molecule is N O R L I M B A N O L and not norimbanol.
Out of the whole Miller Harris line, la Fumee Arabie was the most interesting and this is why I had high hopes for this one but after reading your posts... Not anymore!
Oh well, thanks for saving...
But this is a new release not a re-release!
I believe this one is available now... anyone tried it?
"This stuff stinks" is regularly used when describing real oud oil! Maybe this Cartier does contain the real thing :wink:
Tried all 3 and I have to say the Oud & Oud one is very nice, it's hard to find an oud fragrance that smells like the smoke when burning oud chips but this one does. Smells really smokey and lasts...
Don't worry, I agree 100% with you on this one, especially because it's from Guerlain... They have no reason/excuse releasing trash like this!
The complete opposite for me.... Potion Royal Black sucked big time with its "synthetic and brash" oud-wanna-be sharp notes!
I keep seeing the word feminine in the reviews but maybe that's because of the floral notes, I really need to sample or blind buy this one!
Some fragrances from this house don't stick around...
yes it is possible to manipulate those "smells like" ratings
Shipping within the US and accepting US credit cards ONLY... I guess we'll have to wait for luckyscent then!
Thanks for the feedback... I guess I won't be trying so hard to get a sample of this one then!
any thooughts??? is it that good ? :shocked:
any feedback on this one ?
I missed on that Reckless split.... how is Reckless Pour Homme? can anyone describe it?
Some of these European stores badly need professional help when creating their online shops!!!
You're getting them in 72 hrs because the seller is using Fedex... I wonder how much he's paying for shipping!!!
Thanks for the suggestions... I tried to create an order with Jovoy last week and noticed that I couldn't select the US or Canada from the drop down menu at the address screen so I figured they don't...
Yes shipping from France is fast but I can't find any decent online shops located in France!
DHL Paket sucks big time and they're ruining the reputation of the online shops that use that...
Very lucky indeed... Thanks for the update!
My package is still showing it's in the UAE with no updates to the tracking since October 2nd. I have to mention that Essenza nobile is keeping an...
Again you're making them look bad and making me feel bad and worried too! You're telling me that I should be prepared to lose an order valued at more than 500$ because these things happen??? I'm...
like I said in my previous post, I did not come here to make your store look bad, I simply asked a question about shipping to the US. I was not complaining but I found it strange that the package...
We're in the year 2014. I've ordered all kinds of things from all over the world and this is the first time I see this kind of "delivery delay" If you want to have an online business or any kind of...
eternal oud = musk oud
extreme oud = pure oud
black oud = incense oud
gold oud = rose oud
is that correct ?
Thanks hednic. I think essenza-nobile just went to the bottom of my list when it comes to shopping sites! This is the 3rd delay to the same order.
yeah and the problem is that DHL thinks that it's the destination country!!!!
Status from Thu, 02.10.2014 The shipment has arrived in the destination country
Next step: The shipment is...
If my order from essenza-nobile is to be sent to the USA why is it landing in Dubai? according to tracking info from DHL! For those who ordered from the US, is this normal?
The Kafkaesque experience is close to mine... Yes you're right to not blind buy this, I think the whole thing was damaged by the use of synthetic woody notes... sample it first!
Yes that's what I meant when I said the 80's are baaaaack in my review!
It does remind me of Italian Cypress before it gets to the dry down stage!
Starts with patchouli and more patchouli sometimes even smokey patchouli, but then dries down to something herbal/mossy/woody it reminds me of the classic masculines from the past like Azzaro, Quorum...
thanks for the feedback hednic!
I'll try contacting them by phone next time.
Speaking of Parfum1, do these guys EVER reply to their customer service emails? I tried emailing them about 5 different times using the form on their website and never received a reply!
Just noticed this one is released already ... anyone tried it? is it really an intense version of New York or is it different?
