what did you end up going with??
Granted, scents do not have gender. They just have plastic surgery after theyre made.
Which frag out there is aimed at the ladies but you wouldn't mind wearing this out to a special occasion... or...
OK so I'm not hooked up right now and honestly it's great not having to shell out money for Valentine's day. This works out bc I'm relatively cheap plus I dont like feeling pressured by media or...
wow, blast from the past
totally forgot about this one
i think Dracula the mythical figure would wear Hermes Caleche. He's THAT manly.
^LOL, what I meant was that it's excellent at attracting attention without being overbearing. 1hr into a properly applied spray, it's calling out 'heeey stranger' LOL
gun to the head time again eh? as of today:
Clive Christian C
probably because it's not douchey enough. when you discover 1Million, will you actually set out to create 1Million threads about 1Million??
more infraction bait
I am in the process of re-reviewing the Tom Ford house. TFX is still a little harsh if I catch any of the aerosolized droplets, but the notes are very smooth. I've loved Black Orchid for a while...
Not even close
TF Neroli Portofino
TF Tuscan Leather
TF Oud Wood
D&G TOG is close to Guerlain L'Instant. Which says something about D&G.
Doesn't taste like Hawaian Punch either. Ripoff!
Actually what I detect defies explanation. It's so complex I just lose my train of ....
TL is wearable, everyday fragrance
CC-C is otherworldly, but always a formal scent. That's too bad, cuz I been wearing it to the gym. Going to have to pick up some TL soon.
but NO, it's not a powerhouse. it's a whorehouse.
and it's terrific
some epic lavender
it's the discerning gentleman's vetiver
Such a fragrance hasn't been properly evaluated.
Wore some Amouage RM, lipstick, and some KY. Off to my corner to cry for a few hours.
... as they turn a scheduled maintenance into a ripoff extravaganza.
Edited: I confused The One with The One Gentleman (which is similar to L'Instant)
GIT works better in daytime imo
to those that complain about price, you're 100% right
that's why I always do overstock or fragrancenet for Creed, decent discounts
post of the year
its a bit flat about 2 hours into wearing, but so far only worn twice, both times in winter.
the notes are very well balanced and suited for casual to summer formal
a more civilized alternative to 1Million, same scent, just toned down a bit, throw in some extra vanilla for a smoother drydown
i think this is what you are looking for:
Get the samples first. I like Escentric 02 and...
guys, please post if you see it in the stores
gave away my Jivago 24k bottle a few years ago after I made the mistake of buying it
that would be Tuscan Leather
Tucson is quite a different territory
for the love of Pete!!
Same scenario here. MI rocks out in summer, tends to dissipate quicky in Midwest winters.
none of you are worthy :P
Check out some Creeds: Millesime Imperiale, Himalaya...
Guerlain L'Instant is a warmer subtler alternative to MI.
Guerlain Heritage is citrus spicy elegance, affordable alternative to Brioni.
"quick update guys... i detect some apple in here too. woww soo awesome you guys, this is the most perfect scent ever!!"
My Nordstroms SA had never even heard of it. Amateurs. I'll take...
PR 1 Million is a leather and silk wearing gypsy pimp with a gun. AB Secret is more like a persian guy blasting techno music in his Mercedes S class.
Seriously though, i've come back to 1Mil a...
I've made peace with Kouros. Azarro Homme too. Matter of fact, we went bowling together the other night. Kouros got way too drunk and started some trouble with Le Male who was there (he always shows...
Don't ever say I haven't done anything for you guys. :P
I'm too exhausted for a full review, but it's exactly...
If you like your frag without the birth control, then try these:
Tim Hortons 2 cream 1 sugar or Bigby Regular Blend splashed behind the ears
its bloody classic. got a whiff of it today whilst shopping and will be sure to pick it up from TJ Maxx
Going along this fragrance journey, I realized that so many men's frags are both pleasant and safe by using citrus notes such as bergamot, lemon, grapefruit. Nice, but sometimes you want something...
ran out of my larger vial, and the small one is with my brother in Cali. So I sampled it again today at Sephora...
it was all i could do to keep from buying it.
im waiting bc there seems to...
Have you tried anything yet?
honestly, Farenheit or Kouros would be perfect
and yes, you absolutely have to tailor your scent to be appropriate for the occupation/surroundings
sample as much as you can
I recommend Guerlain Heritage
Montale Woods and Spices may do the trick
pure crap until proven otherwise
who's the perfumerier?
What frag would you recommend for a general contractor working in construction industry. The job is primarily outdoors but requires meeting with prospective clients and...
Yes, too many to be meaningful.
If you dont mind my asking, how old are you, what do you wear to work (suit vs casual), and are you midlevel or senior exec?
not sure what youre looking for but you may want to give the Escentric Molecules line a try
Takes time to develop. Smells like nothing at first then explodes later, so probably choc-full of Iso-E. F black is better.
But not a discussion
... part 2 of my post
I've worn these to the office and enjoyed them in that setting
Hermes Terre D'Hermes
Hermes Vetiver Tonka
Cartier Eau De Cartier Concentree
Umm... hang on to the Aventus and Angel Men and revisit them. They are an acquired taste in some people - definitely were for me.
I am assuming an important interview (suit and tie) for a career position. From his wardrobe, those were my recs but there are better ones out there.
Volume is of utmost importance. I think a frag...
I like Chanel for the office. They really know what their doing with truly elegant confident frags. Eau Sauvage is a terrific office scent in the summer, very refreshing.
may have struck gold here
you guys are all crazy
smells like flour tortillas
samples in route along with the Amouage RM Tortilla edition
love love love love this frag
can never find the occasion to wear it
seriously? another nude midnight NY fishing frag thread?
Tom Ford Extreme of course
hookers and cocaine
no, that's not a cologne (but it should be)
(Edited: it read differently last night for some reason)
I didn't do a vid but posted a comment on guinea54's channel. I'm sure I'm not the first one that did it but the combo worked awesome in...
depends on the occasion
wedding: wedding scent
interview: interview scent
casual: casual scent
hope that helps
I get more leather and violet notes. Classic.
Not sure where you want to throw these but
Bond 9 New Harlem
Bond 9 Chez Bond
Bond 9 Coney Island
Hermes Terre D'Hermes
Creed Millesime Imperiale (if we consider it designer rather than niche)
Creed Green Irish Tweed
Creed Original Vetiver
Creed Bois du Portugal
Creed is considered niche AFAIK. As such, and based on my limited experience, here's my votes:
Creed BdP, GIT, MI the usual smattering of sucessful Creeds.
Clive Christian C
Habit Rouge > Boss Bottled > Allure Homme
very lightly applied. I'd do 2 to the chest and that's it.
My goal would be to smell pleasant, not flamboyant. Vetiver works but IMO can be off-putting...
im gonna wait it out and do the usual routine: test it out on a card... ask for samples... complain how the samples dont come with a sprayer... not like it at first... start a thread bashing it......
Well you gotta admit that false rumor worked. Got me chomping at the bit now for some RM.
Allure Homme is very well made, as most Chanel frags are. However, I would recommend Bleu de Chanel over this one.
Puddle Monkey called it first I think, but BdC will be the new Pure Malt once...
sorry, just now saw this.
it's Jack Black Signature EDP. peppery minty herbal citrus fresh scent
Well with all the talk of Amouage this and Amouage that I was sleepwalking and placed an order for 1 (ONE) solitary singular bottle of RM. FML
I've been thinking.... Going to try Iso-E Super next time.
great thread idea, david
was never crazy about frags growing up. in fact, i detested the musky overpowering frags most everyone had in the 80's. Avon Musk or darker smells like Kouros were...
nothing overpowering. ever.
i like L'Instant by Guerlain or Creed MI in the summer. Creed Aventus or YSL La Nuit in colder months.
tasteless. like most Ken Cole crap.
well done. i retract my prev statement
(internet sacrasm fail)
On second thought, Creed Original Vetiver has a calming effect on me, as such it's the only one I can wear and notice enhance sleep. Will have to try lavender. Any...
I get tobacco, gunpowder, mint, tropical fruit. Complex and earthy but with an almost gourmond-ish drydown. Davidoff Zino is what YSL Kouros would wear to court if it was brought up on racketeering...
Erolfa is great. To me, it's a mashup of MI, VIW, and maybe some Royal Water. It's a summer frag though, will dissappear off your skin in the winter.
^ i have no idea what either of you just said, so i'll take it as disrespect
srsly though, i've worn some samples at night to test longevity, never to enhance sleep. if anything, they've disturbed...
the douchebaggery in this thread is so cloying
Dont mess with Epic Beard Man
Great start. Chanel know what theyre doing.
Pick up some Guerlain. Never liked it until I hit my 30's but it's a great house. Try L'Instant first, then Heritage and Habit Rouge.
