I dumped some Madini Ambergris oil into mine, which made it quite feral , and darker.
I have Joop, but rarely use it. It reminds me of Nag Champa incense, which I love, but Joop is way over the top, at times.
I switched to Mauboussin (2000, edp, in the rounded pyramid bottle. ) as...
I forgot about Silences. I have the old one, which is still readily available. Not keen on the opening, but the dry-down is bitter, dark and vegetal. Somehow, it reminds me of green camouflage...
This is hilarious!
2 MAN: Smokey, snuffed candle scent, with vetiver. I love this in the fall.
Comme des Garcons (original, edp): Very spicy, dry and medicinal, with some rose. I love it in the winter.
Aramis 900, Haramain Al Mahfuz and Rose Poivree are my rose scents. Other than that, I very picky when it comes to rose.
I just got a mini of Balmain Ivoire (2011 version). Vibrant, succulent, green opening; soap in the middle, and more soap in the base. Might be a little too feminine, maybe, at least in the beginning....
Eau de Gentaine Blanche
I'd rather have Vivre, though it's not something I'd wear. I love that bottle! I have two empty ones, but would love to some original fragrance to put in.
White Musk for men is my favorite. N.R.G is second, Jovan Musk (men) is next.
Jovan musk for men, was my very first fragrance, ever. I worn it for years.
I love the smell of Dove soap, the original, white bar. My great-grandmother, did not wear perfume, but she used Dove soap.
I find that Jean-Louis Scherrer edt, smells a lot like Dove soap in the...
I got mine yesterday, June 4. I thought I was getting the silver shouldered bottle, but I received the newer one instead. It's still the same scent I remember, but perhaps not as long lasting. Seems...
Yatagan is my favorite autumn scent. I was comparing it the other night, with Jean Louis Scherrer edt (the original), I noticed similarities. JLS is a more floral, summer version, of Yatagan; green...
I have a sample, and I like, but I'm gonna use up something else, before I buy this one. For me, Kinski is a chypre, my favorite genre. I call it a "marijuana chypre".
I won;t be able to wear Kouros, today, as I don't have any. :( , but I did order some 2 night ago, so at least I have it for the rest of June! :)
Watch it with Dark Purple, though. It can be a bit too much. It's definitely not a multiple spray scent. It's very much a dab on type fragrance. I really have to be in the mood for it. The weather...
BTW, here's a strange little vid, featuring Professor Ellen Covey (Owner and perfumer of Olympic Orchids), herself.
I got the huge sample pack (discovery set) a few years ago. I liked a lot of them, but I thought Salamanca was ok . It's dark, kinda bitter...very heavy. Not sweet at all, but this was before it...
I have a few big bottles (they look kinda like liquor bottles). I like to dowse myself with it on a hot day, especially after doing work outside, and then stretch out on the floor, in front of a fan....
I got TONS of compliments while wearing Dorissima Narziss. Need to get another bottle.
Mine is Cuir Venenum (Parfumerie Generale). It's a very strange scent; you either love it, or hate it. Reminds me of summer nights, here in SC. Drinking beer with friends, bonfires, warm skin after a...
I thought it was great, about 25 years ago. I bought a bottle recently, but I can't wear it. Seems like it has changed. Too much powder, now.
Eau de Gentiane Blanche.
Mitti Attar from India, is petrichor/geosmin scent, mixed into sandalwood oil. It's actually distilled from baked clay!. It smells like rain hitting dry clay. It's also expensive, but a very little...
I gotta buy a bottle. I ran out long ago, but now regret not being more conservative with it. I wore it to bed, all the time!
June 1st: World wide Kouros "stink out" Day ....I love it.
Olympic Orchids Red Cattleya smells like Red Bull to me.
Annick Goutal Mon Parfum Cheri, par Camille: Get some samples of this! You won't be disappointed. This perfume, has all that fatty, waxy, aldehydic, makeup, lipstick-y smell.
I wear mostly men's, but I do have some favorites that are marketed as women's. Bandit parfum, for one, is my most favorite scent ever, but I try not to wear it every single day (I wore Montana Homme...
I want to try Honey Aoud.
Annick Goutal Petite Cherie. It's a feminine, but it's very pear-ish. It's cool, juicy pear, with grass. I don;t wear it, myself, but I have a few samples of it, that I like to experience at times.
I used to wear Grey Flannel, but I tired of it quickly. I do think it's better dabbed on, than sprayed.
I didn't realize the Ralph Lauren Blue, was a great musk fragrance in the dry down. It's one of the muskiest. It's a glean/dirty musk.
I have a Bath and Body Works fragrance, with the same thing. Looks like dandruff! When I got the bottle, it had none of the flakes in it, but with in a week, the flakes appeared. I have to the store...
I always put scent on. I even wear it to bed. I can go out, looking like a sloppy, unmade bed, but I be damned if I go out with no fragrance on.
L de Lolita Lempicka.
ELDO The Afternoon of a Faun.
THE PERFUMED COURT ain't what it used to be. They mess up orders, too. I like Luckyscent, and the Perfume Shoppe.
I have the oil base Burning Leaves, great stuff, but a little goes along way. Mix it with some CB Musk, and it's really feral!
Yes...Eau de Gentiane Blanche. That's another favorite of mine!
Mine would be a .5 oz bottle of Habanita, from the 50's, maybe. I haven't really checked.
I still have a bottle of Jamoca Musk for Men, that I purchased way back in 1996, or so.
Bandit: An unsweetened green, that's very dry. My top green.
Jean Louis Scherrer: Bracing, cool, mossy, forest type of green. My second favorite, especially in summer, when Bandit may be too...
I bought a bottle of Parfum d'Homme. The box was genuine, with all the hallmarks, but the bottle inside turned out to be the grey one; the new 2001 scent, Montana Homme. I had been swindled. I ended...
Parfum de Peau
I wouldn't call my collection "big", and there are a lot of things I like to wear, but Bandit seems to be the one that gets my attention the most. I assume a signature scent, for one that owns many,...
Frankincense and Myrrh, of course.
Something with civet, musk and castoreum....and perhaps hyrax, too. He had two of each, so there was plenty. ;)
PG Psychotrope is my light, leathery, floral.
I have a mini, but I wear it very seldom. It's very nice on sunny days, with little humidity, especially in fall. I also have the Lolita Lempicka (original) in the apple bottle. Its smells similar,...
Swiss Arabian Jannatul Firdous; big, fat, soapy, mess.....but then recently, I tried it again, and figured out how to wear it. So not really a bad blind after all, plus it was very cheap.
I was so appointed in Kokoriko. It doesn't seem to live up to the flashy aesthetic, of the other JPG offerings. I like the bottle, but the scent that's in it, doesn't represent, IMO. I expected...
Lauder for Men is great stuff. I didn't think about Habit Rouge and Jicky. I've sampled both sometime ago, so I need another go at them. I remember really liking Jicky.
I've been on a chypre kick, lately. I've been sampling a few, from Luckyscent.
Chypre Palatin: This is really nice, but it's a bit sweet, and certainly out of my price range.
Chypre Mousse : ...
I'm really starting to love these dark, bitter, chypres, but it seems they are scare these days. I found a small Magie Noire etd mini, that I had purchased and forgotten a number of years ago. I...
I have Ambraliquidia, which is very sweet and powdery. I have a sample of Dolcelisir, also very nice. I've sampled Meharees, and liked it a lot, along with Myrrhea.
CBIHatePerfume Winter 1972.
I have the oil. It smells like cold air, cold soil/snow, with a little snow laden conifer thrown in.
CdG Odeur 53 also reminds me of cold air.
I've really taken an interest in Smell Bent, after blind buying Commando. I purchased a lot of spray samples, and I've found that Smell Bent's production philosophy, truly is rooted in the...
Tabac is powdery sweet. My dad told me never to wear it around him, again; he hated it that much. Too much of a 'grandpa' moment.
You want Christmas, get:
Comme des Garcons (original) edp.
'The Afternoon of a Faun,' is the most conservative I've tried from that house. A dusty chypre type scent, that will smell great on granny, as much as anyone else.
I have L'artisan Mure et Musc Extreme. I get tons of compliments on it.
Bandit parfum is my favorite bitter green. Gets a lot of wear in the spring and early summer.
PR Metal is another one that's good for summer, especially on rainy days .
I've just discovered JC...
Etro Palais Jamais (very dry grey-green)
I've gotten a lot of compliments on it, too.
I'm still torn on this one. Better get a bottle before it 's really too late!
Spring and summer rainy days:
Eau de Gentiane Blanche
Winter/ fall rainy days:
CDG 2 Man
The EDP smells exactly the same, to the original, IMO. I did a comparison, and found they are the same, but for me, it's day has past. Me and Helmut Lang, have long since parted ways; ever since it...
I've only tried the one in the blue bottle. I think it's nice, but somewhat common. It's a really hazy, fuzzy, kind of scent...a lot of iso-e super. I already have Molecule 01, which has the same...
Pinaud Clubman is very powdery. It's a available in liquid and talcum powder form. Talcum powder has NEVER been "just for the girls".
I've sampled it, but I thought it was a bit mainstream. It's still nice, though.
oops double post
CdG 2 Man, is unsweetened powder to me. More like a smoky, dried grass, powder.
This week, I discovered Jean Couturier Coriandre. A very green, tart, dry powder, with some rose. I'm usually don't...
I've worked as an arborist for many years. Oak has a distinctive odor, that will permeate everything that been used with it. The ropes and climbing saddles, even after storage, would give off that...
I received my samples from Luckyscent.
Pharrell Williams Girl: I wanted to love this, and it's ok, it just kinda falls flat after a promising opening. Smells like nice shampoo.
I want them to put all my bottles in the casket with me. By then, they'll probably need a forklift as a pallbearer.;)
A few years ago, I acquired a Lancome "La Collection" set. It was on sale, and I figured if I didn't like some of the perfumes, I could give them away. The set included Sagamore, which was a selling...
I think Clinton wore Bijan, Bush and others wore Bijan as well.
I personally don't like Bijan, although I still have a bottle (I just can't dissociate it from a creaky voice, cigars, semen...
I think it would be degrading to smell like shit.
My favorite Cartier scent (so far ) is Baiser du Dragon, I've never tried Essence pour Homme. I'll put it on my "must try" list.
My father very rarely wears any scent, aside from Pure Romance Ego, (.....must be the hemp in it, lol) and Monsieur Musk. He is 69 yrs old, and has Parkinson's, which has recently affected his sense...
I'm waiting on my samples of Cuiron and HL pdp.
Swiss Arabian Jannat al Firdous is very green and musky.
I got the edp...a new bottle from this year. It's ok, but I like the vintage better.
When I first read about the relaunch, I grab my old bottle from 2000 (which has a very few mils left), and sprayed for the first time since, perhaps, 2007. I wanted it to stretch, so I never used it....
I thought Smell Bent Five kinda smells like fries.
When Opium for men came out, I tried it in the store. I thought no self-respecting man would ever wear such a thing; it was just too sweet. Ten years later, I started liking sweeter scents, so I...
I'm certainly gonna try out more Molinard.
Other than Habanita, I haven't experience any other fragrance from this firm, until Wednesday, when I received my latest blind buy. I really enjoy wearing Rem. Patchouli, but it can wear me after a...
No much oud for me, but the scent itself very warm, and very human. I'm thinking of getting it.
I have Caron Eau de Reglisse, LL Minuit Noir (apple), LL Au Masculin, Lolita Lempicka Le Premier Parfum (apple) , Lotlita Lempicka Illusions Noires Le Premier Parfum Eau de Minuit (apple), Opium pour...
SL Jeux de Peau....most definitely. Toasty bread and butter, served on sandalwood platters .
L'erbolario Dolcelisir...apple pie and vanilla ice-cream.
Lotlita Lepicka "L"....lemon, maple and...
Bal a Versailles
Baiser du Dragon
I've trying out Smell Bent lately:
Prairie Nymph: Clementine, carnation (clove like), musk, and a very pissy honey. Seems to last 12 hours plus on my skin, especially the honey note which gets...
I have a travel size of this scent. I was going to wear it when I went to the beach, but I have been yet. It's nice scent; very musky and not too sweet. It's not usually what I go for, but it's...
My grandmother had an old 2 oz. bottle of 4711, which I used to sneak whiffs of as a kid (another "eau" she had, was a full bottle of Hoyt's cologne). The 4711 bottle had only a tiny bit left, but I...
I had a small bottle of Devin, that was part of a mini Aramis collection set. My brother received the set, in 1993 from my mother. The only thing he liked was New West, which, at that time, was a...
I like Wondewood and 2 Man. I haven't tried Wonderoud.
Wonderwood and 2 Man are vastly different from each other, IMO. 2 Man is a distant bonfire, hazy, rustic quality. Wonderwood is more...
