Maybe this'll shed dome light:
Did you get any skank there? Somewhere into the late dry down is where it came up for me.
It's refreshing to see an opinion on the fragrance from someone devoid of pre-conceived notions of it by...
You may have better luck getting feedback here.
It seems I'll never get to smell this one (unless I find it at one of the local CdG retailers). I've ordered samples from both Aedes and Twisted Lily and both times I've received Wonderwood instead....
Did someone say biscuits and cakes?
I wish I was mumsy's kid.
Same reason I pay for music (both recorded and live), food (both to cook myself and to eat at restaurant), plastic art (both to have in my house and to admire at museums, galleries, and studios),...
One that I haven't seen mentioned: Wazamba.
The box is from the smokey batch. :bath:
It's part of the line's expansion to gender-identity-and-sexual-preference-specific flankers (from research conducted here). Next up are 1 gillion, 1 lillion, and 1 willion. 1 trillion will be coming...
That's been my experience (minus the being talked down to) with the local Neimans. They like pushing MFK for some reason.
I've been wearing this every day for the last week for no other reason than I just like it that much. I would not call it intense... nor cuir... nor does it necessarily smell like Cuban tobacco,...
It's enough when you have to ask if it's enough.
If you're interested in Montale, I'd add Red Oud and Dark Oud. I second the Ex Idolo Thirty-Three suggestion for rose-prominent fragrance. If you have a Sephora around you, I'd take the Atelier...
So Andy Tauer not only discovered teleportation but also proved that there is a soul? There's at least one Nobel Prize there. :bath:
The sample I tried must have been deffective because it left me...
I never understood how someone would want to sit through 20+ minutes of review. Especially when every review seems to be "thisisaworkofartmasterpieceohmygodsoamazingthumbsup!"
Hindu Kush is amazing.
Maybe Spice and Wood or Royal Oud of the more readily available.
Aventus could also be a year-round one. However, Creed wouldn't be amongst my first recommendation for a colder weather/night...
Mona di Orio Les Nombres d'Or - Ambre
Atelier de Geste - Wild is the Wind
Atelier de Geste - The Good Earth
Parfums de Nicolai - Cuir Cuba Intense
I actually put my order for these in last night, so technically it was November that...
So can any of the lucky recipients chime in on their impressions? :)
I was planning on doing so on this thread but my sample never appeared. :(
The best (pushiest) for me was at Nordstrom. My girlfriend was shopping for a suit, so I went downstairs to kill time and check out the fragrance section.
I was surprised to see Parfums de Marly...
Coat your palate and tongue with wax and bite off the affected part. Spit out immediately afterwards.
That's not the inventory they need to clear. ;)
Yeah, they should really do Norne II. :bath:
worn-out elastic bands: the true panty droppers.
I smelled this at NM before it launched officially and I have to echo that I was more impressed by the feminine version. I was not very impressed with the masculin.
Awesome! If this were five years ago, I'd so be there.
Thanks for the info, lpp. :)
The main benefit I would see if I were to start hosting splits (besides those of any other hobby) is that I would get exposed to many more fragrances than I normally would.
It goes without saying...
Mine came in on Saturday - picked it up on Tuesday from the post office, if that helps get an idea. I haven't given it a try yet, but I liked what I smelled off of the closed vial.
btw, I love the...
I do get raunch before the very late drydown. It's an ambergris bomb at one point.
If getting laid is considered profit; none.
I'm guessing they are cheaper to manufacture... and they're gimmicky.
They are to keep from accidentally spraying in lieu of bottle caps.
Hold the bottle at arms length so that the label is facing you, shake three times to the left, two times to the right. Now the molecules have been properly activated and your fragrance will be good...
I thought of that, too! My version is more romantic. :P
It reminds me of childhood:
This is what I wrote to them through their "contact us" page a few months ago:
And this is what they came back with:
If that doesn't work, not much more will.
You can also email following the contact information on their website. I scored samples of their essenze line that way.
I got indirect compliments from two male coworkers earlier today. When I revealed it was my cologne (Santa Maria Novella's Peau d'Espagne) that they were smelling, we went into the whole Anchorman...
Spray the door with sunblock.
"You smell like a sexy baby."
See you soon. :)
Yeah, balsamic vinegar has no balsam whatsoever...
Another reference on Orange is the New Black happens in a flashback scene for one of the inmates, Rosa. She has just robbed a bank with three males, one of which is her boyfriend. I believe it is him...
The definite answer to whether it's fake is
All joking aside, give your nose a rest and revisit the fragrance...
I wore Steampunk last week and found it to be a nice (not too) powdery violet. The opening had some citrus and dry cedar. The violet was always present. I got a slight leather vibe and there was...
I'm wearing Limed today. I love this one - especially the dry down. It's a shame that it's not in the directory.
I got a set of samples some months back as I like a couple of the regular DS & Durga line. I recall enjoying Isle Ryder and Spirit of the Glen (the former more than the later). Ironically, I was more...
Good choice and even better username!
Orris and amber are the main culprits for Dia Man.
Pull straight up. They seal tight, so you need more force than seems reasonable - it'll be fine.
More than I should and not enough.
Slumberhouse Vikt, Ex Idolo Thirty-Three.
The rumour some months ago was that a new, IFRA-compliant, EdT was in the works to be released.
It is absolutely fake and should be immediately destroyed.
The one I have from years ago came in a box like the one shown on the left. No complaints from me.
First impressions: The opening is spiced and (pink) peppery with an aldehydic fruity accord that feels to me mainly like a faint green melon and a zesty and more-sweet-than-sour grapefruit.
I estimated based on 14 sprays per ml (which might be generous, but oh well).
So 3.4 oz = 100.55 ml
100.55 ml x 14 sprays per ml = 1407.7 sprays
1407.7 sprays / 2 sprays per day = 703.85...
Batch variations. ;)
Dude, did I just spray that or did I only think about it?
Bottega Veneta pour Homme, Itasca, Black Cedarwood and Juniper, Serpentine, Voyage d'Hermes.
If you want to smell like dill, Santal 33. If you want to smell like patchouli, Rose 31.
I guess I wasn't hallucinating that pineyness like I thought. To me it was like that singing frog from the Looney Tunes cartoon. I'd get a whiff of it and when I paid attention to what it was, it...
Agreed. The fermented fruits go more in line with the wine feel. I also agree that this one would tilt more towards feminine, but still within the unisex realm. In the dry down I get a waxy rose over...
I just spritzed it on a few (30ish) minutes ago. It opens tart and winey with green berries - not that this smells green, but the tartness of the berries brings to mind not-quite-ripe fruit. Shortly...
I could not agree more.
For what it's worth, when I wore Americana Rust it immediately reminded me of Jeke minus the "nastier" and tea aspects of the Slumberhouse. I am just going off memory here and I haven't worn Jeke...
Coincidentally, I am wearing Vikt today.
Chergui, [insert a popular Bond No. 9 here], and [insert another popular Bond No. 9 here].
Approximately 2 years.
Awesome. Thanks for sharing the info. Parfum1 is certainly great about sample requests, just like Twisted Lily, with the added bonus of discount events occurring more regularly than with Twisted.
Luckyscent and Twisted Lily should have samples available once the official release happens (I hope).
Fixed that for you. ;)
I, for one, am looking forward to sampling this and decide whether a full bottle is in my future. The way it was described to me as something more in the vein of Eki with...
Received as a gift when I was around 7 or 8.
Of the ones shown; I'd only bring Blamage, VE, and AdG along. I think you can dress those up or down for anything business-related and non-business-related. Perhaps also bring the samples along for...
The username is accurate.
They don't sell Slumberhouse via their website. You may call them, however. They are very friendly.
Repeating on the LimeD. Sprayed even more than yesterday.
He's merely rounding up. ;)
I am sincerely glad in reading your post. Congratulations on reaching the milestone!
Yeah. That Minyea-en-inyea pronunciation was a bit tricky. Oear + Olive is much easier.
The operative phrase there is "was nuts." It's just not so nuts of a deal anymore. I wish I'd been lucky enough to have been aware of Slumberhouse back in the good ole days and had snagged some of...
Pastel wound will do in lieu of children's tears.
Yes! I love this approach. I feel that people (me included) tend to get too hung up on the concentration of a fragrance and adjust their...
Limed. I think I overdid it with the sprays but I don't care. :coolold:
Royal pineapple and children's tears.
That would be one heady fragrance.
That's my note wishlist. :)
white wine, rose, strawberry, ambergris, and others.
Pronounced "sardinae." ;)
Thanks for the info on the name and such.
I have samples of some of these. I've only tried Dune Road - a late afternoon walk along the beach with seaweed washing up as the waves crash in.
Oddly, according to my SOTD log, all of my Sova wearings have been in Spring except for one.
