Obsession for men vintage 48oz stashed away in a controlled environment should last my lifetime. :0)
Love the bottle and presentation cant wait to sample this one.
I can't believe that LVMH is pulling the plug on these Fendi scents....Assoluto is my go to fall scent
I have a headache just thing about this :(
Like it the current version it is less harsh but still has the long down dry and sillage.
Rasasi: Emotion for men a great woody rose scent that is mild and long lasting.
Tuscany has always been a golden hue. Greenish makes me feel it has gone bad or exposed to sun and heat.
Actually I find their quality of knock off very good. Their Spirt of Heaven is a dead ringer for Amen. All of their scents are very powerful a little goes a long way
Wore today the most current formulation and got to admit it's not bad very office friendly but powerful
It appears to be launching at
Kohls in the U.S.
1 Million Cologne - very fresh take on the original removing the cinnamon spice components
I obtained a bottle of Noir Sacre and agree though the bottle looks identical to Montana Black Edition the are totally two different scents. Noir reminds me of the late Escada Magnetism Homme it has...
It is a eau de parfume
Just love the gold chains hanging from the bottle ...just that in itself is selling me :0)
Armaf is part of Sterling Perfumes you can check them out on the web.
Aventus. I have to get around to it to see what all the fuss is about.
Actually the idea of a Edp makes me yawn it just Muglar Parfums jumping on the Edp bandwagon for men. I feel it will not be stronger just a rework of notes or maybe a closer to skin version of the...
Yeah I spoke with a Mugler rep at Macy's she clarified and showed me how it works, very much like the Angel you purchase a refill vile and refill the glass bottle part. A new metal flask will come...
How does this work and when did this happen???
This scent projects very strongly on me actually all Herrera scents do the same on me
It's is exclusive to Macy's it was a pre-order that I placed about 2 months ago.
It will be coming to Nordstrom soon as a exclusive
I just received my bottle of this today and I am again impressed by Paco Rabanne. The bottle is real again eye catching and well done. The scent is really a different spin on the original scent...
I have to say Invictus. The price point for Spicebomb does not match the qualities.
Someone once posted a dead roach that was found inside a bottle... Bleck
Gosh the LeMale ship is on a never ending journey since it set sail in 1995....from Paris.
I have noticed a great change in longevity and sillage from what it was back in the early 90's. I believe the change is in fact due to changes in style and tastes has scents as a whole moved to...
Link to a official press pack on the new scent but no launch date given:
The squat square is good if you can't get your hands on the original it still has the killer top notes and mega sillage. The mythical one is a total remake with a bight citrus opening light woods...
The Obsession for men sold now is a full fledged remaking for the original. I find it now very sweet fresh smelling like a slight spicy soap the longevity is horrible even the color of the fragrance...
3 am what kind of name is that? Wasn't that a song by The KLF? LMAO
Going to bump this
Totally different look for Boucheron from Jaipur Homme back in 1998 - can't wait to sample it.
I own it also the notes are: thyme, raspberry, jasmine, cashmere wood, labdanum, leather, cedar, amber, musk
Marshals I spotted 4.2 oz Joop Homme Wild for 19.98.
Correct. Darn iPad keeps auto correcting my thoughts :0)
The bottle is really well done in design and the fragrance is a intense fig coconut mix ... Loving it.
Was not crazy about the original but this is big improvement
Legend always get noticed when I wear it. The scent has geat sillage and longevity on me.
I've used the scent from when it as launched and found though the scent itself has not be tampered with the longevity and project have be changed.
I am glad to see Spicebomb is following in suite of Flowerbomb that has an Extreme version. I have a feeling it will launch first with Nordstom, hope the don't plan to launch this in summer.
To this day Pi Fraiche is the best just don't know why it was discontinued :0(
I bought a bottle but may return it to Macy's ...I find the longevity and sillage null.
EMPIRE's confident stride begins with crisp notes of peppermint, rich chai accord and a hint of juicy apple. It's addictive aroma continues to unfold into the heart of the fragrance with a masculine...
What I find a little suspicious is the spray is not brushed copper like the cap and have Aspen engraved on it ...that is how I remember the original.
Sunrise by Franck Olivier
I have not got my hands on this but would love to try it. I am a huge fan of their Patchouli which is a winter staple for me.
As you all know Coty sold off the Lagerfeld portfolio to InterPerfumes in Oct 2012. I've noticed that Lagerfeld Classic has been cleaned up a little from the destruction of Coty now that it is under...
I like the brand for the price and quality. My question is if anyone tried their scent called Reyane for men the bottle kind of looks like a lantern.
I have large collection of vintage Obsession for men below are some pictures of my rare 20 year anniversary edition bottle. Notice how darker the fragrance was back then it was like the color of...
The bottle is based on the women version both based on the concept of the spiral a maple seed makes falling to the ground. I believe Serge Mansau created it. It does look better in black.
that was fast in coming to America! anyone sample it yet?
The black is very close to what the vintage Montana Homme in the red box used to smell like as I remembered back in the early 90's. Very dry peppery and spicy.
Matt now has me very interested to...
Yeah like AMen it appears the blue color will change over time to grey and other funky colors...
I never purchased it for I felt it was the Montana Black Edition just renamed and repackaged.
If it is the pictured that's fine but if it has the gold bottom missing that is a reformulization version.
Yeah I have been wondering why Kouros and Body have not been added to the square bottles yet????
Sounds like a little darker ADG reading that incense has been added to the mix
seem like all the flankers from Amen are now weak in sillage. Pure Wood was too light and fleeting for the price. Ultra Zest will not be a blind buy for me.
I love pistachio kulfi its a sweet cream so I feel this is going to be a sweet scent. I want this loved both his EDP and EDT of Noir.
I will say it will was a little unusual of a fragrance and that is why it was never popular despite Bon Jovi being the front man for the fragrance. The old package with the wooden box does sum up...
I just noticed that Parlux has brought back this from Kenneth Cole it now come in a black bottle and is sold on Perfumania. I loved this scent for its deep cedar notes but it was impossible and also...
The square bottle still holds its own to the original it's the current Xeryus in the Les Parfumes Mythiques edition the is terrible. That version is all grapefruit and very light.
Dior Homme - is hands down for me!
In this year they will be releasing a Burberry Rhythm Intense and even that will be in EDT concentration- I don't think the company has ever branched out into marketing EDP for men.
Dior Homme: Edt, Intense, Eau, Edp
Love 32 the blend of vanilla counter balanced by vetiver is very original
This really sounds interesting to me zesty pink grapefruit... nutmeg cloves cinnamon with orange and vanilla!
Lapidus Pour Homme Gold Extreme by Ted Lapidus is a Oriental Spicy fragrance for...
I just really wish this company would invest in a new master band for men, the AMen flanker is just boring now to me enough! 20 years you think you would want to create something different from...
Sounds like the first flanker that will not hold the Mugler DNA of chocolate / patchouli / coffee
Oops spoke too soon....
Also sweet & spicy in a BIG way!
Not to change the subject but I found the same situation with Blv Pour Homme, it appears the women's version was phased out.
Witness, unique grapefruit and cinnamon blend
I wore the scent a lot in the mid 90's and possible could have been the first person to own it in the US. I can vouch that the longevity and sillage have been reduced from what the used to be. As...
Love how this is made in the United States but you can't find a bottle for sale stateside!
To me the difference between the old and current bottle is very slight to me. I feel that being a high quality house that Chanel is and being very astute to keep up their image, they took a very...
I would have to agree with the suggestions of Mont Blanc Individuel and Creed Original Santal both are not new but hold the DNA of Joop in different variations. Joop is such a polarizing scent that...
That orange sherbet note that Roma has been undefinable for me in other fragrances. I would suggest another bottle.
So agreed! Thank you Andre for the time and effort you put into sharing this insightful information. I enjoy your blog.
I always find Guerlain's male EDP to my very close skin scents the never project on my skin as much as the EDT
I tried this today and found the opening very pleasing but the middle and base took it downhill for me. The longevity was not there for my skin and the overall brightness of original was gone. I...
Why is this posted here? It is not a discussion about fragrance.
I don't feel this will be a stronger version as in projection but rather a reworking of the note composition.
Wall of Shame for 2014:
Bvlgari Aqva Amara
Jimmy Choo Man
I often have the suspicion that Jeffery my behind this whole CH frenzy here at Basenote.
The only new ones I noticed are Reveal Man and Intenso.
I found my local Macy's stocking a big case of the new fragrance, lucky they did have a tester and I tried it. It smells like a less sharp version of the original being a edp it is a very mello...
I have to agree too. I sampled this today at Macy's and yes it has the makings of a great fragrance sweet warm and salty but the fragrance is too thin, I got no sillage and could only smell it if I...
When this fragrance was first launched I thought it was the greatest thing in the mid 90's. I was very sad when Estée Lauder took over the Donna Karen fragrance portfolio and discontinued DK Fuel...
If you like this scent you can find a copy which can be found cheaper lasts much longer with better silage. Its called Pal Zeler Uomo, $23.00 @ Fragrancenet
There is a reformulation which is greatly detected in new bottles. With need to remove the oak moss they also lightened the overall stillage of the fragrance.
I didn't see this post and just posted a quick review on these two scent. If the moderator could join my post to this one that would be great, so we keep all the info together.
I purchased both of these fragrances rather cheap from Scented Monkey this past week. I never dabbled in the original Latour Cigar fragrance but for the price of these new editions - I could help to...
Is this why fragrance from European countries can't be shipped to the west?
I have to say Versace Eros. I have been wearing it a lot in the cold weather and it really radiates a rich woody citric sweetness.
Aqua di Gio it fits any occasion
To me it's timeless for it has a classic men fragrance of woods and leather
Pre internet I always had collection but it was hard to find out about new launches it took a lot of research into European magazines and such to find out information.
212 Sexy will give you better mileage then Le Terrible for sure.
