No 88 Czech & Speake (by the way, Ozzy Osbourne wear this on his reality show on tv)
Sorry guys, i did a mistake. I was reporting my opinion for the former version, not the current one. I like the previous one... found it modern and still with some barbershop smell. The current one...
Nice point of view!
Rum, do you think the rechargeable is more similar to Rive Gauche than previous formulations? Any of you guys had this impression too?
Oh, I noticed exactly what Rum wrote. This rechargeable is more toward to a summer scent than ever. Light, creamier, almost none musk. For me it was like a "Rive Gauche fraiche". I dare someone would...
Well, i would like to cultivate some flower plants that are more often used in fragrances. But many of these flowers does have many species... For example, i would like to know which geranium species...
I just don't want a retro vibe, not this time. :D
Halston Z-14 (people say is mostly piney, but i never tried)
The Azzaro Pour Homme 2015 does not have the silver strip on the cap. Did they also reformulated it again?
Yatagan is great, i often wear it in hot weather.
Santos by Cartier
Yes!!! I prefer Havana because there are many fougere's better than Tuscany (i only know and and have the current... it's weak and i wear it as a second option for casual wear)
For me, the new azzaro reformulation is quite modern, close to skin and reminds Rive Gauche but in a weaker manner. I never tried L'Eau . I would really enjoy if L'eau is even more close to Rive...
Egoiste is more complex. I would not recommend it as a blind buy. I like it very much, but if you sweat, the smell turns to a saliva-like odor to me. I guess is the sandalwood. Vetiver Guerlain is...
@hednic, is there any perfume near Rive Gauche? Especially, i am interested in that soap smooth middle and base. I am not looking for musk soapy notes, however.
Does anybody knows if L'eau is more related to Rive Gauche than Azzaro PH (current reformulation: silver band at lower edge of the cap instead of the top of cap) is?
I used to see grey boxes and red boxes for Must de Cartier. So, i don´t think this is a release.
I like the tea note on BPH extreme, but overall it's too loud on synthetic side. At the end of the day i get tired of it. Maybe pour Homme or B Man extreme might have a more pleasant wearing? I read...
No, i meant to ask between those 4, because i know Black and many others are prefered here in basenotes.
Choose the best Bvlgari in your opinion, among those 4 listed. Leave a comment!
i found current Azzaro pour Homme much closer to Rive Gauche than old versions of APH. Oakmoss and musk were removed a lot (maybe fully removed). The citrus opening is very bright now, however...
Thank you, Dave!
Rive Gauche, but the current Azzaro is quite modern and easy to wear by young men.
I am interested in that tea note, airy and fresh. Maybe any of those below? Thanks!
Bvlgari Pour Homme Soir
Eau Parfumee au The Vert
Bvlgari Man Extreme
I like the creamy smell of muguet, but i suspect it's almost a exclusive note of female gender fragrances. Can i find any fragrance that a man might wear?
I would like to know if Azzaro is the scent that most smells like RG. I tried the new reformulation of Azzaro and for me both have somethings in common, although Azzaro is much more weak than RG....
I love RGPH but the soapier smell i tried is Van Cleef and Arpels Pour Homme.
Don´t expect much of it. I would compare it to Armani Code and Rochas Man. It has a kind of rum-sugary smell in a woody base. Do i like it? Yes. Outstanding? No.
Amazon is not the best option. Brazil' shipping cost is 55 USD per item.
I get a shower and wear Yatagan, then i feel clean, no dirtiness... However i feel more confident aplying on my chest and fabric. It works great on fabric. A coniferous forest smell for sure!
It could be worse! It could be Coty! LOL
As a physician, i would say it's a shame.
Hi guys, i am having problems on finding Rive Gauche... even on ebay, most sellers don't ship to Brazil. Is there any webstore that still sells this one? Thanks!
YSL Rive Gauche
YSL M7 Absolu oud
Dior Eau Sauvage
Hermes Concentre D'Orange Verte
Lalique Encre Noire
Visit Azzaro for 20 USD. I have a 10 years bottle and all i smell is incense, almost like Kyoto by CdG. By the way: CdG men, Gucci pour Homme I, Body Kouros, Loewe 7, all are on designer prices range...
Egoiste is such a great scent, however the ending drydown smells for me "sweaty" . Not body odour, but like dried saliva smell on skin. What is this? Sandalwood?
The scent you are looking for is Santos de Cartier. It has a coconut-like dry down instead of amber (Antaeus).
Preferably designer's scents, but can be any.
I'll try the new one soon. It's hot here in Brazil now, sunny hot days...
I think i only know the "old" one. I met this scent in 2008-2009, and then, never again. What i remember is a very strong opening, like a dry bush. Very realistic, but way from nowadays citrus...
No Ink. It's all mirrh and vetiver with some ambery dry-down base.
I love some of those! Haven´t tried Aramis yet;i love Santos and Antaeus, but can´t put then often, because they are a little off place. There are some scents i clearly remember the moment and place...
Very very similar is Kyoto by Comme des Garçons. Ferrari Black is to my nose similar too. Also, but i did not try : Celine Fever, Sartoriale Paul Zileri.
That was my doubt. Thanks.
Definitely a sick society that needs tons of rules and laws to not disturb the too much fragile and sensitive human being of 2014.
i have Habit Rouge EDT and don't like it much. It's too powdery, stinky. People around tends to like it, but not me. I found shalimar EDC and was curious about it, but don't want that pressed powder...
Have not tried the new one. Looks like is a more modern approach than the vintage, isn't it? Could it be good for night parties or is it a daytime scent?
I agree 100%. I will try to discover which one it is and bring back the answer to the thread. :D
At night parties i detected a not so pleasant fragrance that is very powerful. Seems like people here gave a break to One Million and many are wearing this designer scent. For me it's a bit...
That's it. Tuscany has a natural citrus top. Then it calms down to a patchouli plus suede-like note (or maybe basil). The longevity is as poor as the one of APH reformulation. I apply 3 or 4 spritz...
Thank you, Ken.
I found New APH reformulated pretty weak. It fades to a skin scent in minutes. If L'Eau is even weaker, i won't buy it.
what about Salvador Dali Pour Homme?
How can these two be compared, in terms of smell and longevity?
I am sad rive gauche will become rare as m7. Prices are going up. I will try sartorial, as i love RG too.
** New reformulated azzaro pour homme has more in common with RG than previous one, but...
I would take 6 seconds to ask the name of the perfume. Wait 6 years is a torture! LOL .
Dior Homme/ Dior Homme Intense
A*Men Pure Malt
Those who supposed about designer scents were right, i find them easier and maybe only them. I have Egoiste, and love it, even when it seems to smell a little "sweaty". Jaipur and Opium i din't like...
i will wear Mugler Cologne to watch Brazil vs Mexico today. Here in my city one entire avenue will be closed for some hours to show the game out in a big screen. Girls are drinking vodka insanely....
Go for Caron pour un Homme.
Anything to do with Acqua di Gio?
What am i looking for? Warm, spicy, soft sweetness if present ( i can´t tolerate vanilla that much).
What i don't want: lavender, patchouli, heavy musk, white florals... (not this time)
This is the probably the most important think. Not the magnetic cap per se. There are fakes with magnetic cap. But legit Bleu de Chanel is like a little of "magic cap": no matter which position you...
Dimitrios, do you think is still ok this new reformulation?
Yeah guys, i was happy and sad when i smelled the reformulation. Happy because the smell is more modern, seems more balmy, just like my beloved Rive Gauche. Nobody will tell is a scent from 70's. But...
How good is this scent nowadays? I saw it a few times, but don´t know much about it.
After i get mine in hands i'll post my impressions too :D
Many i recognize as elegant rather than old. But i don't enjoy strong tobacco and menthe notes and that is the line for me. Givenchy gentleman is one i don't like.
Well, Narciso for him is quite unique, but considering it has something to do with some fougeres, i think you should go this way of patchouli theming: Azzaro PH last reformulation is quite light and...
IMO, L'eau d'Issey has a slight advantage over AdGio. Hanae Mori will probably give you compliments too, because of it's sweet vanilla.
I looked for Norlimbanol and Ambrocenide, but they seems to be new, or newly patented. I think the substract i smell is a bit older, maybe last 10 years.
It's interesting... Here in Brazil they use...
I think all the statements here are of great value and given it´s low price (i found it for $20) i will probably buy it blind. The descriptions here brought to my mind Salvatore Ferragamo PH as both...
Nowadays i am noticing so many scents (or clones, fakes, who knows?) with a disgusting "airy-woody" note. It is the same of DG light blue, Versace PH Fraiche, One Million, Polo Blue ...just to name...
Good explanation by Slayer!
What could be a alternative with good fresh citrus blast, not overly synthetic...a more modern citrusy (1990-2014). LJ was created in 1998, i think.
They re-released it in 1999 and it already got reformulated? This is strange.
Luca Turin reviews were for me like a introduction to perfumes history, mostly through designer's perfumes history and notes. You may be disappointed if you are looking for a buy or not to buy guide.
I think the pic above is about the current one. What has changed? Synthetic, poor longevity ?
I read someone's opinion that rochas man has been widely "cloned" on baby wipes and deodorants (Lynx- Axe Dark Temptation). Does anyone know or agree with that?
Yeah, Modern Reserve is such a beautiful scent.
Oscar for Men is a really cheap scent out there, but in some threads people complained about "too much pepper" on it. Do you guys think is it a good take for summer days? A pleasant citrus scent ?...
I'm addicted to Egoiste. I can't rotate easily these days. I need more and more of it.. LoL. :D
It's fine. Terre is modern but not trendy. Those kind of advise "this scent is not for your age" is irrelevant, in my point of view.
i 've been "bathing" with Mugler Cologne, Monsieur Balmain, Live Jazz e especially Rive Gauche, which seems to calm down my skin. With rive gauche i feel clean and fresh. Ohh, i forgot to say.... The...
If you have a weighing machine you can use the principle of Archimedes. I never tried, but may works.
1- Find a recipient and put water until the top of it, the maximum limit of overflow.
SOLVED. The black small cap was stucked tightly inside the bottle cap hole. So when i opened seemed that the small cap was weirdly missing, and i thought it would be a fake. Thanks Hednic for the...
Maybe Paco Rabanne PH, Tuscany, Monsieur Balmain.
Love your ponderations, always right on target!
you MUST like lavender. It has a lot of it, but it is almost a cologne. It did not last on my skin too long.
Calvin? i don't remember much of it. :(
Choose the more indispensable. Cheers!
I bought one of this. It is just a concentree version tuned down and sweeted with a coconut base. The spray is horrible to apply. Interesting, i wanted to buy the so called "awful" reform. version,...
I want more! \o/
I tried the new one today. I would say it is faint, pale or bright compared to the original. I think it may work fine for a summer scent. It will stay close to skin after few minutes. Looks like most...
I am curious about that. If the answer is positive, say which one.
