Many say with the recent bottle change that the scent was reformulated.
I have a bottle of Intensa and something about it smells medicinal to me so I'm not a fan of it and hardly wear it.
I recently acquired a bottle of DHP after having a small decant and actually prefer it over DHI.
Since Aventus is fairly expensive, they're most likely using Insurrection Pure II
CH Men before it got reformulated
The most recent formulation reminds me of Azzaro Chrome (but not as synthetic) due to the metallic note.
I was curious about how many here actually use the matching aftershave?
Was this the bottle of DHS you purchased?
I just noticed Fierce Intense is back instock on the A&F website. I'm still unsure on whether I want to spend that much on an A&F scent :/
usually it will smell like alcohol
Sadly that fragrance also suffers from poor longevity.
Some reason why scents get reformulated and packages get redone is to meet EU regulations. Just like how Frederic Malle was forced to reformulate about a quarter of his scents last year just to meet...
I would wear something green such as Ralph Lauren Purple label or Bond no9 Bleecker St.
I own bottle of both and vote for XXV.
Sounds like Méharées by L'Erbolario.
Spicebomb then a reformulated YSL La Nuit
Wow a very nice pick up!!
Yes sir I did acquire the bottle on Ebay.
There is no laser etched batch code as seen on silentrich's bottle. Just the embossed lettering/numbering on the bottom.
I just checked my 2014 DHI box and the bee logo was on the inside box lid.
I received this bottle in the mail.
I've seen that bee logo also on the DHI box as well. According to the quote it looks like the bee logo is also used in their Dior Homme clothing line as well.
Interesting vintage Platinum Egoiste bottle silentrich. Since the "eau de toilette" is below the "Chanel" instead of above it as jason_newton mentioned.
Here's a pic of the bottle I just...
ADP Colonia Assoluta
Counterfeit kilians? Never knew that.
Do you have pics of the bottle and box?
Hopefully the 4oz bottles are priced similarly to Aventus 4oz bottles :)
Looks like there's a new A&F scent out.
A very interesting combo of bergamont, water lily, and seamoss.
Congrats on the pick up!
If you have a spare fridge why not keep it in there. I keep mine in my dresser where it's cool and dark and away from light.
Interesting find. I would've snatched that up for $29 considering its discontinued and sells for 4x that much.
inb4 the Windsor batch variation thread
I picked up a bottle when I heard it's being discontinued the first time.
Is Gucci by Gucci and Gucci sport discontinued as well, since it's no longer on their website?
You'll need to cut off the entire rubber top so you'll have access to the atomizer. Near the atomizer sprayer mechanism is another batch code which is etched.
Looks like it's real then. The batch number near the sprayer should match the batch number on the bottom of the bottle and the bottom of the box.
shouldn't the batch on the bottom of the bottle match the one of the box?
I recently had an incident of sellers remorse. I won an item and paid for it immediately (buy it now auction). The seller sends me an email saying they plan on listing 4 more of the same item and if...
Technically they do own the fragrance given it's only a small amount. Juice is Juice. It's not like they're using a fake. But if they're claiming to own a bottle and only own a sample now that's a...
How about Orange Sanguine or millesime imperial.
Depends on the individual. I found the EDT to be sharp while the EDP was much smoother and easier to wear.
How's the rose note in lyric man?
I believe the EDT and the cologne are the same strength. It's just an earlier bottle and in the later bottles switched from 'Cologne Spray" to "EDT Spray".
I try and read all the reviews possible and see if it's something I might like to own.
D&G Light Blue
I have to admit that the presentation was nice. The box and bottle looked like niche quality. But I agree the marketing and price point were failures.
Not many would pay $120 plus tax for 50ml of fierce. Also a lot of the brick and mortar stores didn't have any tester bottles available so basically you had to blind buy it.
Which version did you pick up? I own the EDP and I agree it's a great scent for the price.
Ysl live jazz
That mint note is very refreshing.
how's the projection and longevity?
The reason why it hasn't been mentioned yet was because OP stated in his post that he was looking for a designer not a niche.
Rive Gauche (vintage can)
YSL M7 Oud absolu or a vintage bottle if you can find one
Azarro Pour Homme
My vintage bottle of Eternity arrived today. It's hard to see the batch code but it's J189.
I haven't tried the latest formula but I just have to say that this is some very potent juice. The...
Looks like a security tag to prevent theft (which is why it's hard to remove). Just take it back to Target and get a replacement or have them remove it.
I just tried layering vintage D&G Pour Homme and vintage CK Eternity
When I was checking the past auctions I barely saw any "COLOGNE SPRAY" vintage bottles. Then when I saw this cologne spray bottle pop up one day I had to grab it.
SmellyFinger here is the guy snatching up all the vintage obsession bottles :)
Does your vintage bottle of Eternity say "COLOGNE SPRAY" on it or EDT Spray/vaporisateur?
Actually the Eternity is still in the mail (that's the pic from the auction). But I'm really enjoying the vintage Obsession now that I have a back up bottle :)
I was going to purchase that bottle since it included a box. But the bottle didn't have the "COLOGNE SPRAY" written on it (I wanted a second vintage bottle to match my splash). Also I'm not the...
I also recently just acquired another vintage 4oz bottle but this time with a built in sprayer.
I believe fragnet is sold out of it right now.
Wow 7 bottles nice! My only bottle which was pretty hard to come by.
It looks likes the seller just got more in stock. Ebay auction 231561735438.
If you're looking for a pineapple scent similar to Aventus you should sample BondNo9.com (pricey) or Insurrection II Pure by Reyane (cheapie) which were released in 2013.
How's Invictus vs 1 million Intense?
I've actually never tried the EDP and only have a 2010 bottle of the EDT (a batch before BdC got reforumulated).
Since you already have DHP I would go for LIDGE.
picked up a couple bottles based off your reviews :)
look into some of the new Chanels and Thierry Muglers
Thierry Mugler Ultra Zest
allure homme sport eau extreme
Blue de Chanel EDP...
Fragnet's website with the 25% coupon.
Does anyone know if fragnet is shipping out the reformulated clear bottle or the older black border bottles?
it matches that LV bag perfectly :)
Vanille Bourbon by IL PROFUMO
That batch number looks etched (try rubbing your finger nail across it) and it matches the serial number found on the box. Most fakes don't bother with etching the batch numbers on the bottle. Your...
Do you have pics of the batch number on the bottle?
Green Valley was one of the Creed's that I've blind bought.
you were able to acquire this gem?
i find the EDP more spicier and less sweet
Givenchy Play Intense (before it got reformulated)
I have a bottle of the vintage and it reminds me of Gucci Envy.
Prada Amber Pour Homme Intense
How is this? I've been thinking of picking it up. Is it overly sweet?
came in to say this
or Aventus + VIW
That bottle is at least 95% full and what do they mean by factory sealed? It looks like they just shrink wrapped the bottle :/
How about Armani Prive, Chanel Les Exclusifs, and Tom Ford Private Blend?
Did yours happen to have the paper insert?
How old are these carded samples? What are the batch numbers? I can't imagine samples going bad from shipping. Most likely from improper storage.
What I do with my splash bottles is use a small decanting funnel and decant the liquid into an atomizer. But as hednic mentioned almost all retail bottles are crimped and cannot be refilled.
I've worn the vintage Obsession a couple times and it sort of gives me a Musc Ravageur vibe in the dry down (vanilla and cinnamon).
I was able to pick up most of the men's Cereus lineup (missing #11) and here's how I rank them.
1. #14 (the only EDP in the lineup with good longevity)
I just picked up a 3.4oz bottle of this and many sellers are saying it has been discontinued? Is this true?
I'm looking forward to using it alongside some of my gourmands (i.e. Pure Malt + Raw...
a very classy scent
Egoiste Cologne Concentree and D&G By Man are nice
Here are a couple
Allure Homme Edition Blance
Terre d`Hermes Parfum
Are we also going to overlook that a 10ml decant sold for $110? So a bottle for $600 seems like a deal :)
I received my bottle of X today and the opening reminded me of D&G By Man. Anyone else?
this one looks interesting
3.4oz Dolce & Gabbana By Man
