Paco Rabonne XS
Parts of this topic remind of the the debate of do we wear frags for ourselves or mainly for the attraction of other people. I am 20 and I have worn Rive Gauche in the past. I can see myself wearing...
Because of basenotes the first frag I purchased blindly was Azzaro Visit. I still wear it to this day and it was my SOTD yesterday.
Testing out Gucci PH. I might have to pick up a bottle soon...
It is my SOTD today so I thought I would comment. A member in a previous post said it has a very calming uplifting effect and I agree. I am not sure what I get out of the top notes. I guess it would...
Congrats Scentronic. I knew you in your perfectfeet days and we have swap and traded various frags. I still talk to you in pms and you give great insight. I consider you a friend in the basenotes...
Gucci Pour Homme!!!
I have been looking to update my wardobe and I have been on the search for the right pair of jeans. The problem is there is so many choices on styles and fits and I do not know what they mean. I also...
Bois du Portugal by Creed
Great post. I could really relate to your pattern of finding hobbies and the stages you go through to explore that hobby. Hopefully I will keep basenotes and fragnances up as a hobby (not an...
Santos by Cartier
I would def try this cologne before you buy it. It is very unique and you may be put off buy it. Try before you buy on this one.
Michael for Men by Michael Kors
Your one lucky guy. The Orginal reformulation was before my time. I love how the new obsession smells so I can not imagine how much better the old one smells? I must of costed you a hefty penny but I...
I have heard that frags usually have a shelf life of 3-5 years. Chances are I will not finish them before they are expired!
Bvlgari Pour Homme
Or sample or decant for that matter. I only have six bottles in my collections but various decants and samples as well. I never have managed to finished a bottle or anything. I think I buy more frags...
Thats cool to here. It is always good to share a passion of yours with someone and have them enjoy it as well. Good call on telling them about basenotes. They will find everything they need to know...
I do the baby powder in the undies.
YSL- Live Jazz
I agree with your pepsi top notes, but I do not get you saying it smells like a pet shop in the basenotes. Maybe I do not know what a pet shop smells like. For me, Magnetism has a vanilla type dry...
When I picked up smoking again I went a while without spraying on cologne. I found the smoke and the scent would not mix well together.
Laguna PH by Dali has a tropical coconut beach aquatic vibe to it.
I think Brit suits this scene
Welcome!! Stick around for a while and if you have any question, ask and you will get an answer. Trust your nose and enjoy the journey.
BTW did you pick your user name after the...
I do not know if this is just me or not, but I find a huge difference in applying scents via spray then splash on. Whenever I go from a sample vial they do not last as long or do not have as much...
Have never smelt Envy I cannot offer my opnion on it. I have smelled M7 and think is a great frag...but not for the club. It is very dark, heavy, and cloying that would be more suitable for a one on...
Editions de Parfums Musc Ravageur
Purchased a 1.75 oz of M7.
It is a great scent and has some lasting power. It is a great summer scent and I love the tea note in it.
I have sampled Xeryus rouge a couple of times and from what I remeber it had average longevity. It is a very sharp sweet smell that reminds me of a lighter M7.
Creed Orginal Vetiver
When I opened this topic the first scent that came to mind was Bulgari PH. It is a very nice frag but since the colder weather is coming up I would suggest Burberry Brit.
Terre De' Hermes
Congrats on your 1000 post. It is quite a feat and you are one of the regulars around here that makes basenotes such a special place. I wish I could help you with your frag choices but no...
Interesting read. Great responses in this topic.
I recently took out a old decant of Habit Rogue EDT and applied some and was not impressed it smells like a old man's lollypop.
D & G Ph
Creed Millésime Impérial
I was testing out some of the 12 decants I ordered. I tried Santos de Cartier and Gendarme and I was not impressed with either of them. They lasted about 30 minutes on my skin. I still have 10 more...
Thierry Mugler Cologne
Vettiveru by Comme des Garçons
After sampling some I strongly disliked
Silver Mountain Water
Top five most wanted bottles
Green Irish Tweed
It seems like the GIT's on ebay are selling for 60 dollars at most. This is probaly a good sign that most of them are probaly fake.
Paco Rabanne XS Pour Homme
cleansweep34. I am also going put up a bottle of obsession night.
Escada Magnetism for Men.
Escada Magnetism for Men.
Hmm maybe I should have done the buy it now feature. The only frag I have seen so far that actually gets bids on it is green irish tweed. The scents I am trying to sell has no bids on mostly all the...
The reason I ask is because I recently listed some frags on ebay and it seems like for all the other auctions in that frag no one is placing any bids. It look at other frags that are being sold and...
I have a decant of this and so far I am turned of it. I have yet to expernience the great dry down that everyone is talking about and it smell really funky. Will keep testing it though.
While I have not gotten around to sampling Garage by Comme de Garccons, the whole house interests me quite a bit. I am in wonder in what most of their scents smell like and like how they push the...
Creed Green Irish Tweed
I recently sampled Dior Homme and to my nose I get some similarities with Dior Homme and A*Men. The only note they share is lavender but Dior smells like a more defined and less intense verision of...
L'Eau D'Issey pour Homme
Creed's Green Irish Tweed
Creed Original Vetiver is pretty clean
I say cool water also. Black code has this weird olive note that really bugs me and does not belong in a fragnance.
Gucci PH or Gucci Envy?
Creed Green Irish Tweed
I saw it for sale at Marshalls today but it does not sound like it is for me.
YSL Live Jazz
Calling it man candy means it is sweet but manly at the same time. IT is kin dof creamy and sweet but still manly. As far as it being cheerful, I do not know. I really do not attach moods to my frags.
I have written a review about this scent. You might want to check it out. The tops notes smell like lemon lysol to me but dry down it a man candy smell. It can be worn in the warmer weather but with...
Most frags are not really a safe blind buy to me. I would try to get a samples from here on basenotes or somewhere else. That being said, it is a unique frag and the dry down is just as good as the...
I think I do not have one right now.
I am kind of like Envyus in the regards that I knew nothing about fragnances before coming here. When I came here I made some blind buys and purchased some decants of a variety of colognes. I...
I would say Azzaro Visit.
M7 is a very sexy fragnances to my nose. The top notes could put some people off, but I find it hard to believe that someone would not like the basenotes of this scent. I think it is a great frag
There is one in the vinicity of where I live and I am going to make a trip up there one days and would like to know what to expect as far as the different frags that will be there. Also do you think...
Creed Orginal Vetiver
Second day of Uomo? Moschino
The top notes of Uomo? Moschino smells like Lemon Lysol
Does Unforgivable have better longevity than MI? If so, I might give it a go;
I pretty much agree with alot of the posts in here. This is truly a great smellin frag. The watermelon and aquatic notes come together with that creed note to form a awesome cool weather frag. As...
