Azzaro Chrome. Just got it today. :)
Blvgari Black. Haven't used this in a long time. :)
AQUA DI GIO should just die die die.
Boss #6 aka Boss Bottled!
Calyx is a girl scent that I love. :) Smells like a fruit basket and it's great during summer. I more often than not end up borrwing my friend's bottle. :)
L'eau par Kenzo
Definitely Live Jazz or L'eau par Kenzo!
Burning? Maybe it's because of all the spices one can smell in this scent. Certainly not burning but heaven. :) I love M7.
Your GF just means that you're on fire/hot with M7. HAHA! Now shouldn't...
I really can't decide but whatever it is I want it to smell of cinnamon and pepper. :D
Sad. All good things must come to an end. :(
You should have waited to get past that topnote... it doesn't last long and then the fragrance turns into something quite nice...and naughty.[/quote]
Cumming? It does smell nice. And very...
I just might add that if you liked BVL Black then you should try Chanel Allure Homme. :) Got a tester of it today and my God it is fantastic! But I still love Herrera for Men nontheless. :)
D&G PH is one of the most adaptable and flexible scents I've owned other than Azzaro. From day to night it's great! Enjoy! :)
I hope the 2006 frag is a good interpretation of the original. I used to love the original. :)
I prefer Ungaro II & III. I doesn't seem to make an impression on me.
Ah, the program in the link has helped me a LOT with the french houses and their frags.
I'd buy my friends and relatives good frags and get them started on this frag addiction so that I would have died doing something; getting people hooked on frags! Spread the love! HEHE!
I think, it depends on the girl. Some girls like sweet smelling frags, and some like manly smelling ones. Frags and their effect on others are ABSOLUTELY SUBJECTIVE. :) Just wear what you think...
Actually, buying frags is my way of dealing with stress/depression. A whiff from these bottles takes me away from reality. :) I dunno if that's healthy but that's me. :P
HAHA! Raunchy sex indeed!
Kouros for raunchy sex! :D
Bvlgari Black is my choice of the three. I would recommend Gucci Envy or Herrera for Men. :)
Well, as far as I remember, the difference between the two was like $10. So, I don't know. Yes, Tiffany does smell more refined and classy. Hmm...
So, I had extra money today. Being me, I spent it on a frag. I bought Azzaro PH. It's okay but I can't seem to appreciate it. But I love it nonetheless as I love masculine scents. I picked Azzaro...
Just bought it today. Had a hard time choosing between it and Azzaro PH but the shop had extra stock of Azzaro anyway so I'm just gonna go back for it.
God, it smells GREAT! I love it. :) I...
Welcome to the boards! It's so nice that new people keep coming in. Us frag junkies. :D Haha! Well, try Eau Savage and Herrera for Men. :)
L'eau par Kenzo or Live Jazz is good during summer. :)
L'eau par Kenzo strikes me as lime-y. :)
I envy you. I don't have Allure anymore. :( And it's quite hard to find here in my country unless I buy it from Chanel.
Don't get me wrong, they're both great scents - I thought Good Life was fabulous, until I found Ferragamo, it just took a back seat afterwards. I'm pretty sure that among Fig leaf fans there would be...
I did the same thing to Lubin. Since i have no excess to the new Idole, i e-mailed them and i got a sincere reply asking for my address so they can send me some samples. Such houses have excellent...
Well, restrained can be good too at times since I'm more of a conservative type of guy. :) But at the same time I'm not afraid of trying new things. Won't Azzaro hold up well? I have my doubts with...
I agree. It's a really raw scent in the animalistic in a back-to-basics way. :D Pornography in liquid form? Nice analogy. :P
Ah, I see. I should look for Ferragamo then. :) Does it have the same lasting power as Good Life? And BTW, Zino is love. :)
Actually, I was looking for it in the forums and database as to give my friend better advice but it's neither discussed nor in the database. :(
White box? The place where I shop has new boxes of Eau Savage and it's still like the old one except it comes in 200ml. I always associate white boxes with testers.
Ah, so nice to hear good reviews on this. I thought I was the only one who found it interesting since people tend to brush off Davidoff.
I used to love Hugo Dark Blue when I started my frag hobby. Now I'm just sick of it. Same thing goes for Issey Miyake. For some odd reason, the more scents I sample or buy, the worse they become. My...
I was thinking the exact same thing! Haha! :P
I love M7 because it lingers for a long long long long time. :)
Awww. :) Funny though she doesn't remember the scent that she sent you. Good thing is that she goes CRAZY. Hehe!
Really? I don't really see those scents much. Not so popular here I guess.
Ha. Can't sleep. Gucci Envy today. :)
I though the same thing too when I caught a whiff of it. How does it wear during the summer and how long does it last on you?[/quote]
It`s great for the summer: Sweet yet fresh, stays in good...
;D Getting laid tonight? Haha!
I wanna try it so bad but I'd have to get it at the high end shops here and not the usual one where I go. :( It's overpriced where I live. :( Too bad the shop where I buy from randomly stocks on...
I though the same thing too when I caught a whiff of it. How does it wear during the summer and how long does it last on you?
I paid around US$25 for a big 125ml tester bottle without a cap.
Checking out the internet may be a good idea.
Can't really do that as shipping to my country is impossibly...
Oh. It's not THAT cheap here. Around USD40. Not good, right? We don't have that much frag sales here. :(
A friend of mine likes it and has been asking me if it's worth it but I can't seem to decide on it. :( Doesn't seem interesting enough for me. I dunno. I only sampled it once.
Givenchy Very Irresistible original smells great! And I agree, try Dior Homme, it's fab. :)
As much as we'd all like to experience how other basenoters experience and rave about some scents, we can't. Some scents don't last long with me and others don't project their notes so well. Sad sad...
The only thing I'd ever like of those 11 is Versace Dreamer. Other than that, none of them make that much of an impression on me.
I spray Live Jazz on my clothes so it'd last a bit longer considering that it's such a FANTASTIC but light scent. Eau de Parfum please. :D
I just smelled this frag a while ago and I think it smells so refreshing. Reminds me of a perfect summer's day. :) What do you guys think? Does it have enough sillage even? Is it worth investing...
Definitely. I'm sniffing it at the moment and I'm still perplexed by it. :D
That's strange. I don't get anything discordant from either Herrera or Photo. I find the initial note in Herrera a little edgy, but certainly not discordant. I also find that Herrera is not too bad...
By all means, of course it's alright. :) I think a woman can easily pull it off since it has a powdery smell to it when it dries up. :) Anyone would smell so lovely with it. Thanks, I really like it!...
Thanks for the replies guys, but now I think I can narrow it down to 3, mainly, Kouros, Bvl Black, or Azzaro. It's so hard to choose among such excellent fragrances. :-?
XS is as long lasting as Herrera on me. It's a fine scent that I wore fairly frequently the year before last, took a break from, and started wearing again quite a bit lately (but I have so many...
So after being fragrance crazy for the past month, classes in University is coming to an end since summer break is approaching. That means, I won't have any allowance to buy frags until around May to...
My whole frag collection is envious of Herrera for Men and Gucci Envy. :D
Just woke up and I've got finals in University today. Boo.
Herrera for Men by Carolina Herrera for me today! Yay! 8-)
Grats to you! :D Maybe something light, cool, and crisp for the summer? :)
Is it really THAT bad? I'm planning to get myself a bottle soon. :( My friend's bottle though is remarkable since I borrowed it for quite some time without it getting fcuked up. But I took great care...
Herrera for Men
Is it really that bad in hot weather? It seems fine with me. :-? And that IS a very detailed description of the notes. Indeed, you must have worn it for quite some time. I know I am. :D
There's also a strong bitter almond note there.
Ah, I notice this too. :) I think it's the benzonin as well, or probably the "magnetic woods?" Haha, who knows. Is sure balances the scent...
It's that gawdawful discordant note that makes Herrera for Men so interesting - I dislike it, but keep going back to sniff it. The I ask myself if I dislike it so much, how come I keep sniffing it...
I tried it on again today and you're right it's the drydown that's great. The initial spray is just horrible. It gets better and better as it fades.
I can't help but agree with you. It's a remarkable scent for me, like nothing I've ever smelled before. Kinda like grape juice on the initial spray but slowly turns into something lovely and subtle....
Ah, yes I agree. I does make you feel warm and it reminds me of my childhood. Depending on the weather, it can be cloying or overly sweet. I think it is best reserved for the colder months but I...
Been buying frags like crazy lately and just 2 days after buying Pi, I bought Herrera for Men by Carolina Herrera. It is FABULOUS! Never smelled anything like it. It seems so familiar though, like...
I'm off to University wearing Givenchy's Pi. Vanilla gets L O V E. :D
Oh, I see your point. To each his own. :)
I guess people are getting into smelling good and loving it. :D
Ha. Just got myself a bottle of it today and I'm in love with it. It smells just like pie! Vanilla lover here. ;D I've never imagined a scent to smell so, uhm, edible. HAHA!
I love Magnetism. It's quite unique and unlike anything I've ever smelled. I dunno, maybe that's just me.
It wouldn't say it was bad but the worst frag gift I recieved was Benneton Cold.
I agree that it needs more UMPH but don't trade it away just because it isn't a sillage monster. It's nice and crisp. Try applying on your shirt for more longlivity.
Grats on your siff-a-thon. :D I love Tea for Two but I can't seem to get my hands on it nowadays.
Oh yeah, how is the sillage on it? Does it last well?
OMG. Blasphemy! Haha! Kidding. :P
In my honest opinion, Envy smells better. But you can't really compare the two since they're from different categories.
A summer frag already? I loved the original. Hope this one doesn't fail to deliver.
I do agree but is it practical to buy a buttload of a certain scent knowing that it has a shelf-life? I mean, I've seen really big bottles of Eau Savage. O_o
Don't pay attention to others and their opinions on when to wear a frag or not. Just be yourself and wear what you feel like wearing. :)
My thoughts as well. Ah, I guess like all other scents, I just have to keep on trying until they grown on me. After all, I wear scents for my own enjoyment; not just to impress others.
Make no mistake, I LOVE it. But I wish it'd just project more on my skin. :( I love orientals and I'm not giving up on Envy yet! :D
Thanks! Now I get it. Haha, stupid me.
Exactly. It is INDEED original. I wanna wear it but I just don't know when. Definitely not a social even as others might find it offensive.[/quote]
But Kouros(1981) is still one of the best...
Exactly. It is INDEED original. I wanna wear it but I just don't know when. Definitely not a social even as others might find it offensive.
I love M7's bottle. It has this understated elegance to it; both modern and refined. But one of the best bottles for me is Givenchy Pi.
Sorry if it's a stupid question but what does fixing their prices with major vendors mean?
I know what you're talking about. I guess it was just too hyped up in basenotes that I expected a LOT from it. You're right though, that it has this gentle and refined thing going on. :)
just out of curiosity, which fragrances do you find to be strong and lasting?[/quote]
Well, Givenchy Pi, for one. Also, YSL M7, D&G PH, Escada Magnetism, Eau Savage Extreme, Allure.
This is what scentaur7 (Marlen Harrison) warned about in his article, "The ramblings of a Fragrance Junkie - Wearing whatever I damn well please!"
IMO, multiple releases of a modified original...
Well, I tried Envy yesterday evening. I sprayed 3 squirts as usual. I COULD smell it but it remained understated. I could detect a whiff of it here and there but it isn't what other basenoters...
It's 8:19am and I'm off to University. It's summer at the moment but I'm wearing Givenchy Pi. I'm feeling down and I wanna smell vanilla. I'm WEIRD.
Well, I went to the shop and asked to try it on and they gave me a sample flask (how generous). It's a great and AGRESSIVE but for some odd reason, after like 5 minutes I get this unsettling feeling...
