Tom Ford Arabian Wood vs Oud Wood which would you choose?
If you can find it, Fumerie Turque & Douce Amere
Jeux De Peau is pretty easy to find
Thanks heperd, will keep a look out for that taco trailer.
reminds me of this
cheap and tacky IMO
Where is this perfume wholesale ghetto located in Houston? I'm going to visit in the next couple weeks. Thanks! I would also like to add that the Galleria is awesome! Will check out Etoile and...
Eau Perfumée Au The Vert, like others have mentioned.
I'm the opposite, I vote Reflection Man. I think New Harlem is pretty overrated.
SDV for more of a boozy type vanilla.
Agree with everything you said!
AN - Great for fall/winter, cool nights, great longevity.
GIT - The most versatile of the three. Can wear it with suit and tie, or t-shirt and jeans. spring/summer even fall/winter. Can be found...
Aoud 1 by Parfumerie Bruckner (aka by Martine Micallef). The notes are apple, safflron, peaches, prunes, orange blossoms, jasime, aoud, sandalwood, vanilla.
Since when has TV been reformulated? This is the first I have heard of this.
This is a tough one but I voted LIDGE
DHI is more versatile but TV is much better IMO. You will get a lot more attention with TV!
Have both but I prefer La Nuit
This one hasn't been talked about much but Aoud 1 by Parfumerie Bruckner is an AMAZING scent. You can only get this in Germany. Sadly I only have 5ml of this, I want the flippin bottle!
I understand your pain Joe. The inconsistency of Creed fragrances is disappointing. I just go in on splits for Aventus to save me the hassle of trying to find a good batch.
this is on my next to buy list!
pure havane is more versatile, but daym when its cold out tobacco vanille hands down!
just a heads up to everyone went to my local saks and it seems to have been pulled from the shelves. i'm glad i got my bottle because i'm loving this stuff. I do pick up kitchen spices from aa but...
spicebomb just came out it's not going to get pulled anytime soon if that's what you are asking lol. congrats on your purchases.
I only enjoy john varvatos vintage from this house. most of line lacks in longevity.
amber absolute, might layer it with tobacco vanille.
i'm glad i didn't blind buy it. this is nothing like tobacco vanille, and doesn't smell anything like weed. On my skin the Oud is really loud, and even though there is some tobacco it is very hidden....
great scent. on my to buy list when they have friends and family.
tom ford noir de noir! its been almost a month and i can still smell it on the sample card. =)
I have to disagree this smells more like baby wipes to my nose. prada amber intense has a dark powdery feel to it. burberry brit as others have mentioned is powdery as well. good luck!
TF Tobacco Vanille
Aventus will cut through the rain.
What size did you buy? Is this the original bottle? If you bought it in store I don't see why couldn't return it or trade it in for another bottle.
I didn't find this one interesting as well. YSL has been disappointing lately, along with Gucci.
most of the 2011 batches are great, just don't get any of the 2010 and you should be fine.
I'm the opposite lol, I prefer Creeds during the spring/summer and Bonds during the fall/winter. Both are great houses.
Buy whatever YOU like, if you can sample then sample as much as you can. Some of my favs but are also popular on here are Aventus, Green Irish Tweed, Millesime Imperial, Virigin Island Water, Silver...
From your list:
- Hermes Voyage d'Hermes Eau De Toilette
- Bleu De Chanel Paris Eau De Toilette
- Yves Saint Laurent L'Homme!! not La Nuit
- Dolce & Gabana Light Blue
- Gucci by Gucci Eau De...
I have both and prefer Rochas Man.
I would have to agree, anything that's close to the skin. I would wear Gucci PH II, that's just me though.
Gucci PH II
Bvlgari Eau Parfumee au The Vert Extreme
Bvlgari Eau Parfumee White Tea
Even though Sears is legit, they have a marketplace like Amazon (3rd party sellers). So buyer beware.
Instead or worrying about batch numbers I just go in on a split. The hassle is not worth it. The split I got on has a great pineapple note, longevity 7-8 hours don't know what the batch number is and...
I have tester cards of amber absolute and tuscan leather going 4 weeks strong.
I think your sniffer has gotten better. I don't think your skin adjusted unless you have changed your diet.
Good decision, no one wants to get held up by the TSA. Just want to get through the dam line and go to where i'm going.
Honestly I don't see a point in this. I enjoy both niche and designer fragrances and it would be a pain to have to switch back and forth whereas right now it's located in one place.
check out minnewyork.com they are legit
Before basenotes I only had 3 fragrances. It would take me about a year or more to go through a 3.4 oz bottle. Now that I have a collection that's growing including samples, splits/decants I barely...
Caius since you are in the States go check out TJmaxx or Ross (any retail discounter), they usually stock Rochas 1.7oz for $20. That's where I got mine. If they don't have it check every other month...
Wow that's a pretty good fake.
TV hands down for me. TL is a great smokey leathery scent with some raspberry, but the saffron note kills it for me. Don't like saffron notes in my fragrances. To the OP you should also check out...
Premier Figuier by L’Artisan has a beautiful milky coconut IMO. It also has a fig note though, so you probably won't like it.
During the Valentines day sale people were reporting getting 2011 batches which is good IMO.
It seems legit to me. The all black bottle you are referring to is only in the 4 oz bottle.
You are correct, I meant Guerlains L'Art et la Matiere line my bad.
I haven't tried this one yet but a lot of people say Bond No 9 I Love New York for All has a great cocoa note.
It's a great scent just not worth the retail price. Definitely get it at discount or get in on a split.
?? Do you mean nothing that you would buy?
I understand these are entirely different fragrances, but which would you choose. Price is not a factor.
I layer TV with Champaca Absolute and love it. I don't see why not with Noir de Noir.
I never leave the house scentless.
I HATE bottles without caps! FU Le Male, Hermes Hermessence line, & Mugler!
I recently received the exact same size and batch number of MI from fragrancex that you got. I have to say my bottle is pretty horrible. I get a lot of salt seconds after initial spray and the melon...
If you are a member on basenotes, what's the point of a signature scent lol. Personally I don't see the point especially with my growing collection. I would get so bored. To each their own.
GIT and TdH are both very versatile
I don't get any licorice from LIDGE. You should be fine.
I prefer the flankers, not a fan of the original.
Get the big bottle! You never know when one of your favs will get reformulated or discontinued!!
I should see why not. You guys might have a different release date.
Not even in the same league as PC, PM and PH. Taste of fragrance wasn't as popular so I doubt this one will be as popular as the first 3 flankers. From a collectors stand point, it needs to smell...
I use a wine cooler that's unplugged. Has pretty thick insulation so temperatures don't fluctuate much.
rumors from what I have heard, though not confirmed:
Tom Ford Amber Absolute
Gucci PH II
L'Artisan Tea for Two (this is is pretty much confirmed)
Can't stand A*men but love Pure Malt. I'm glad I got 2 backup bottles when it was first released.
did you get the 4oz bottles of Aventus from fragrancenet?
Not a fan of this fragrance, but hey if you like it then stock up! Everyone has different tastes.
I had to vote niche. The perfumers are not as held back with cost and quality of ingredients when compared to designer fragrances.
Premier Figuier by L'Artisan Parfumeur
Thanks for the input guys!
I know these two fragrances are entirely different, but which do you prefer of these amber based scents?
I believe all the above you mentioned have been discontinued. Though I do see them on ebay from time to time. Buy at your own risk though. Some people are saying it's on its way to being discontinued.
Whoaa seriously? I get a good 8+ hours out of this juice. That really sucks.
whoa not worth $300, the newer release is not too different from the vintage juice.
Gris Clair by Serge Lutens.
With all this hype I wouldn't be surprised if they released a limited edition gold bottle down the road haha.
The first frag the comes to mind is Creeds Silver Mountain Water.
Creeds BDP is a beast on my skin. This stuff projects like a mutha and I get a good 8+ hours on my skin
I have to agree. I rather have the flask than the torso. There is nothing wrong with the torso design, but I just think this design is much better.
That's a horrible combination lol. You could clear a room before you even enter it.
OOoOOoo it's limited edition from TM. I MUST GET MY HANDS ON THIS SO I CAN SELL IT ON EBAY FOR TRIPLE THE COST! Honestly it looks really cheap and cheesy to me.
The flask actually looks kinda cool. I wonder why the huge revamp? The torso never bothered me, and I find it to be unique.
Zen for Men by Shiseido
Yea it is a little generic IMO, but a great smelling fragrance that will garner compliments.
Yeop that's why I decided not to get a bottle. Great opening but nothing like the other flankers. Very weak and overpriced for what it is IMO.
Whoa around 15 pumps? Mine only took like 3-4.
On my skin it definitely projects for a good 4-5 hours. After, it gets close to the skin.
