Going old school - and looking forward to it :)
In this case I have to say it .... Both :cool:
Don't know about true Oudh scent - But I find Fahrenheit Absolute to be a sweet enough, lasting and woody

An outlet had a display of these last fall and I passed on grabbing one ... the wife was there..... and we were early Christmas shopping...and runing late

One Man Show Oud Edition

Fahrenheit Vintage - Because someday Spring will come!
If this is to be like the Oscars - shouldn't the Industry be deciding? The Oscars is not the people choice awards.... This if like the Hollwood version would be the Industry patting themselves on...
After several years of hanging around here I just got my first bottle go GPHII and I am glad I waited
I needed to try the monsters, the loud ones and the syrupy ones... first . And I still enjoy...
Yup - I enjoy this one - more of a warmer weather ( as warm as a typical Minnesota day can be)
But then I like Aramis too - so what do I know :)
OMS - Oud
OMG...... I am not sure is is a good thing... ;)

DHI - because like Chesterfield........ It satisfies :)
Perfect for a relaxing Sunday
very true - knives that are sharp, scissors and baseball bats are easily available..... The horror!

Have good house - payed off in full
No car loans - but nice 2013 car

My inlaws never understood me from the beginning. And I do not understand them. They are unable to appreciate much of anything - unless they could get bragging rights from it to pass onto their...
For the strongest creature in the forest the Lion is also the one most at ease.
its just a nice scent :)
What no 1 Million or Joop?? Come on! :)
SOD - Les Notes de Lanvin - Oud & Rose
nice light oud (ish) and rose
None at the moment. Quite content with the scents in my price range / possession - in fact when I have reached in the past I did not notice that much improvement in the scent.
Interesting on the ISO-Super. I find myself also not hitting the TDH (ETD or Perfume) in the winter and use it much more the rest of the year. However I enjoy my Encre Noir more in the winter and...
To each his own - but that would be one tough old bird who would wear this :)
+1 on this - really a what were they thinking? - heck old ladies would find this one over the top
As well as Fahrenheit 32 - similar, musky thing......
Not sure about DHI in the full bore TX summer, but then often you find yourself in air conditioning which is a consideration. And truly, most fragrances can be worn year round in many places -...
I enjoy seeing these old threads come up - as it shows how the passions change overtime. And then compare them to the hot, new, "must have" scents in fashion right now. It puts a perspective on...
Got to agree with this as well - versatile - and cost effective :)
Ok received this today -
On paper first ;) A vetiver Lemmonish scent It's old so hard to say but the Lemmon is a bit dusty with some flowers on top
its interesting (and a least not jovan)...
Dreaming of summer - needed a good go to for daily wear when things someday warm up :shocked:
As we here in the [God forsaken] outer lands look forward to a high of 2 degrees today..........
A*Men - vintage formula from sliver flask ... kind of wish there was something else in the...
Agreed - at least here in the US - it will be more of a supporting role - underlying scent upon which other notes will play off
Its kind of the new civet :happy: :)
Bang for buck? Cool Water - you can find it very cheap and its a great [year round] scent.
But I also agree with others on Encre Noire
And ++ on the Carven - Homme!!!
Himmm - well this will be fun. The journey to a cure for blind buys can be interesting ....
Its on its way now and I will update next week when it come in.
One question - if I need to - how...
Per the seller.... "UNMARKED BOTTLE OF VERY NICE EXPENSIVE FRAGRANCE FOR MAN"
So you know its something really great ..right? ") Its kind of like jug fishing on the bottom .... sometimes you...
Generic looking bottle for sure - but has been used for some good stuff in the past ...
And ya - I will try on a test strip first and then carefully sniff .....:shocked:
HA ! - now that would teach me....Jovan.... :)
But I have not received it yet - just asking in advance. Will update when it comes in
Ok - My first buy of the new year!! A crazy blind - blind buy. Just having some fun - cheap and what the heck...
Anyone have an idea what it is??
Dior Homme - modern edition
Just relaxing tonight and enjoying it all
GIT or Grey Vetive
Like others I would go with either of these. You just want to smell good and classy
Agreed - I enjoy this one for the entire ride :)
oh boy, I am getting old.. The time is passing so quickly ;)
ya - and today we have the lefty thought police, PC speak and the IFRA Lovely , simply lovely......
( at least in the day there actually were Stalins goons and useful idiots running around....)...
I am not sure about the color .... But who is going to fake that dispencer???
For a balmy 41 degree day in the north woods - now this I call December! :beer:
This one nicely fits a space in my rotation and I enjoy it thoroughly. Excellent scent and great value! I too am glad I have it Here-here!
Oh lovely - they are simple, nostalgic and conscious
The use of empty, meaningless - meaning everything - meaning nothing word masters. Conscious really?? - as compared to all those other...
Of course such things are relative - to what you already have and what ground you want to cover
I had a bottle found it to be good - but needed to go in other directions - and relative to what I...
couple hundred rounds of ammo - loose. I mean these boxes break going to the range .
Oh wait... wrong board.....:rolleyesold:
This must be the extreme version ... :cheesy:
ditto this - I have both Vintage Fahrenheit and Absolute - they are different but both are excellent. Different moods and to me times if year. Fahrenheit is more fall spring and Absolute winter -...
Nice - congratulations :)
I stepped up to the plate .................... Dior Homme Intense
and I am loving it - woot. :
Got to say it today ... Farhenheit Absolute!
(I got a complement!! - I never get complements!!)
Well I know I like this fragrance - but I actually got a complement form a young co-worker today on it. In the madness what we call work today I forgot exactly what I had put on and had to think
Aramis Havana ;)
Well it beats going to the store and having to fight you way through a bunch of self proclaimed activists having a die in.....at least the SAs are trying to do their jobs. I mean people go to stores...
To me - its a great scent and I enjoy it very much. And I have gotten complements on it from very attractive young ladies. :)
Now in your life you have never smelled something so bad? - You were...
Some good scents there - but for me the scents and their shortness of longevity - cause me to look elsewhere
Burberry Classic (London) is a good one - although projection dies down...
No nitch for me yet - but +1 on these designers !
Started the day sampling some Dior Homme Eau - it's ok - perhaps something for the office .. In the summer
Skied and showers and now it's Chanel Egoiste for the evening - a nice relaxing evening
Perhaps layering as in for the first half of the day A*Men and then over the top / dry down several hours later the Pure Malt for the evening ...
But it's a little much to use both at the same...
Feeling pretty good about picking up a slightly used Dior Homme 3.4 off eBay for $50 shipped.
finally got my head around this and am loving it :)
Thats my collection too - M7 Absolute and Fahrenheit Absoulte -
I also enjoy a hard to find Body Shop Amber Oudh that's pretty good too
Dior Homme - modern version
something nice to recover from 8 hours of abuse from the I laws yesterday ....;)
Vintage Azzaro Pour Homme - a classic
Warm, spicy and manly :thumbsup:
Clearly the type of girl who likes this fragrance would be one who does not... :)
Is there a category for Boxer Dropper? I mean does this work both ways with scents? :shocked:
True - true :)
Azzaro Pour Homme - Vintage :)
Oh ya - all of them
GIT - found it to be interesting - but not enough interest to coughed up the cash to get it
I settled with...Cool Water for now..............gasp! :)
Best wishes and good luck !
like you I do need to limit my spending. Not for basic financial reasons - but the MRS thinks I get a little crazy over fragrences and provides a good break on my ......
no kidding - ya at this prince I had to order one. Thanks for the heads up!!!
2nd this - Own this because of Base Notes and love it!
From my own postal experience and direct comparisons between the vintage blue bottle to the newest version - I would agree to this. Noting that it is a very good reformulation/reissue (?). Slight...
Christmas with the Inlaws - Pure Malt!!
(helps cover the drinking...)
This ^^^ And then perhaps add DH or DHI (depending on your tastes) for something in lue of the D&G et others
Deodorant me thinks.. :)
Perhaps something from the Old Spice "Wild " Collection?
For me - in all seriousness - right now its Vintage Chanel Egoiste :)
Chanel Egoiste -
A work day from home scent - because I cant wear this to the office - HR would have issues with the reactions of all them cute 20 year olds :)
Joop Homme - vintage of course
And its a show stopper - for all the wrong reasons :)
Dolce & Gabanna Pour Homme - some nice vintage stuff
Something somewhat sunny for a cold dark. damp day in the northern plains
Good stuff Grant - appreciate your efforts
Perhpas a wall of shame sticky at the top to note the more notorious - as additional incentive to keep it all straight up and good :)
Ok got my Pure Wood in the mail today and it's pretty darn good. not too loud and in fact I am finding it to be a nice softer approach to the Amen DNA. I found Eau de Baux to be too much but this...
It does make me wonder sometimes as few in the non Basenotes world even know what a good fragrance is and as such why I get wrapped up in searching out vintages or interesting scents. For my own...
It is. There will always be another hill to climb. :)
Well I cut a deal tonight for a slightly used bottle of Pure Wood for effectively $50 - I look forward to getting this and will add my opinion on this as soon as I get it later next week
+1 on the Pure Malt and/or Pure Havane Both are excellent
Even perhaps Carven Homme!
From my understandings true fakes are not all that common - for some very popular (high selling) fragrances perhaps more so
Imitators on the other hand are more common and while often very...
Pears to Pumpkins - Comparison to to other Flankers? - which would you consider better?
Pure Wood or TOF?
Pure Wood or Pure Leather?
Good question - I would like to hear about this too
now that it's been out for a bit and with th cooler weather what do people think about this one? Compared to the others in the line and to other...
good point - agree as long as you have a known point of reference. I have found that in my [in]experience and with my skin that many times what is a fairly long lasting - good projecting sent for...
Bottom line on many of these discussions - It's based upon personal impressions. There is no absolute standard for strength or longevity as this depends on ones own personal interpertations,...
And actually more carbon dioxide is good for plant life ... and more, better, heather plants means ...more oxygen Which as I understand it is good for us :)
Genius! - The (In) Famous Double Speak
We could set up a governmentaly (public tax dollars at work) supported non profit group - create garbage in a bottle - call it something like "Big...
Eau de BS.
it's what they all wear ... In abundance at your expense
Im amazed someone could come up with 10 things to "love" about them
"Hipster" - its really just a cry for help.....Perhaps their parents did not show them enough love or something ....
Hipsters being the annoyance they are - drink PBR - so I would think Brut would be their scent of choice - so daring and fresh!
And people getting the newest version and saying its a FAKE!
To me this is a real flanker - as it sizzles with the spice (in a good and not overwhelming way) On clothing I can smell it the next day - and the notes change over time - good, interesting stuff
