Amouage's Al Mas attar has it in spades.
Amouage Gentleman's Cologne, the top notes are so beautiful that time literally stops for a few seconds.
+1. Al Shomoukh and Tribute on each wrist is a beautiful combination. I sampled Oud Stars Al Khatt and as someone mentioned its death by Jasmine and little else. Oud Stars Najaf is next on the list...
Amouage Gentleman's Cologne.
I like SL Iris Silver Mist, I love Xerjoff Irisss.
I'm not sure where you're located, but it comes alive in mild to cool weather.
April Aromatics Ray of Light is a must buy, the most beautiful citrus I've smelled to date. Zegna Haitian Vetiver is also on the buy list.
I'd like to sample Xerjoff Oud Stars Najaf and Alexandria...
The most favourite part for me is the research and the wearing, the buying part is something that just has to be done, much like flying and travel.
Added more new items.
Don't give up on the Amouage Interlude Man, especially as we're just into Winter. Interlude is intense but you can tame it and the oregano note by going light with the sprayer.
Fragrances I don't like are thrown out.
Fragrances that aren't my style are sold.
Fragrances I don't understand, I keep in the hope I may one day appreciate them.
Amouage Dia Man or Jubilation XXV.
Lucky get with the non-magnetic bottles!! I'd love to find another Jub XXV.
Xerjoff Kobe, wearing the warm weather stuff while I can.
Fragrant Near Year's resolution is to sample and purchase only what I love.
Current Top 10:
Amouage Dia Man
Amouage Taifi Rose
Malle Vetiver Extraordinaire
Roja Parfums Goodman's
MFK Aqua Universalis Forte.
Dior Privee Vetiver.
So how does it smell?!
I simply like to smell good from the top notes to catching whiffs throughout the day, a pure luxury. I also get a kick out of wearing something my girlfriend loves like MFK Aqua Universalis Forte.
Egoiste. If meeting the parents, go light on the sprayer.
Tea and bitter orange peel. Ok but not something I love. I'd recommend Casamorati 1888, beautiful floral, honey, woods and leather.
Xerjoff Kobe. Lovely stuff, I've been wearing it every day for the past week.
Goes without saying :)
Lucky man, this is first edition from 1973 to early 1980's. Don't let it go, they're hard to find!
Also consider a Xerjoff citrus like Nio, Kobe or Fiero.
Get one an older one without the magnetic cap, softer texture and much more delicious.
Xerjoff Nio or Kobe but sample first. It will be significantly less if you purchase from Essenza Nobile in Germany given the weakness of the Euro.
Aventus take a bow.
Bond's Scent of Peace for Him, sweet thermo-nuclear liquid with a half life of 1,000 years.
I'd rather wear Zafar in a crowded lift, ok maybe not, but you get my drift.
Very useful thread, here goes in no particular order:
1. Puredistance M
2. Roja Parfums Enigma PH Extrait
3. Roja Parfums Amber Extrait
4. Xerjoff Casamorati 1888
5. April Aromatics Precious...
Malle GPM works very well in very hot weather.
Travelling and beautiful women.
Added new items!
Any questions, please feel free to PM.
A collection of beautiful gems, provided you have back-ups.
I've thought about this recently as well. The easiest thing to do would be to simply look at your collection and ask yourself if you can let go of the fragrance, simple yes or no answering off the...
I ordered a sample of Nacre after seeing your original post, can hardly wait to try it :)
Scent of the day is Xerjoff Kobe, I'm really smitten by this fragrance.
Darn it, just forgot I need to try Xerjoff's Alexandria and the Henry Jacques range. Ok maybe there is no 'enough' :tongue:
The vintage is a masterpiece, I catch myself sniffing the sprayer.
Most SAs I have spoken with are nice and knowledgeable. I've only had an issue with the Hermes boutique in both Singapore and Tokyo, where they have no clue about upcoming fragrance releases,...
Amouage Tribute, Homage and Taifi Rose. On a per ml basis, it would be Oriscent's ouds.
Enough is when you're satisfied with your collection and you can enjoy what you have for the foreseeable future. I'm near that stage now.
Amouage attars are still available and they're pretty good regardless of red or black box, very few white box attars are available. If you'd like to sample them, I recommend getting in touch with...
Thanks Hednic and Jon, now I just have to wait for 2 weeks.
Xerjoff Irisss, too beautiful to resist.
Ordered it today. Couldn't help it, this one speaks to the heart and not the mind.
Xerjoff Kobe. Beautiful stuff :)
The By Kilian travel atomisers are beautiful. I have them in black and silver, the black is painted and mine shows no wear, and the silver is chromed (no paint). They are heavy (solid metal...
Xerjoff Irisss. Just have to figure out how to afford it.
First love was Paco Rabanne pour Homme in the early 80's. Second love was Eternity for Men in the early 90's.
You can rest assured everything from this house smells good. Expensive yes, regret no.
Roja Parfums Danger.
I've made a blend of Amouage Turkish Rose Otto, ASAQ Crassna Oud and Amouage Tribute. It's a beautiful rose and oud fragrance, with hints of smoky Tribute.
Living the good life Hednic, what a beautiful university town.
One of the most beautiful women in the world.
Either Amouage Taifi Rose or Xerjoff Irisss.
Serge Lutens Iris Silver Mist. Interesting but ultimately doesn't tug on the heart strings like Xerjoff Irisss.
I'm ordering the regular MFK Aqua Universalis Forte EDP as a back-up. It's a beautiful fragrance (received 12/10 from GF) and is reasonably priced (USD $185 for 70ml), while I'm at it I will also...
Hence the thought that it may have been reformulated.
I don't see how LDDM is harsh. I have a sample from Luckyscent that's probably 1 year old. It's soft, sweet, nuanced and slightly waxy. I wonder if it's been re-formulated?
The fragrance is...
Tauer LDDM. Have to say its very nice but it doesnt really remind me of the Moroccan desert, it needs to be drier, starker, dusty and isolated but maybe Tauer is being romantic.
These IFRA regs are getting out of hand. I don't understand how they need to regulate citrus fragrances, when I can go into any store and pick up a jar of marmalade.
Europe is economically fucked...
Backup bottle of Casamorati Fiero and a Fornasetti Ortensia room candle.
I would imagine the fragrance is as wonderful as the flacon.
+1 on By Kilian. The bottles and travel atomisers are elegant and well constructed.
I have the EDP and it's a stunning fragrance, my favourite in their range. My girlfriend loves Do Son and my cousin loves L'eau du trente-quatre, they produce some of the best value, natural smelling...
Xerjoff Kobe - lovin' this stuff.
Niche - Amouage Dia Man, Roja Goodman's, Xerjoff Irisss
Designer - Dior Fahrenheit, YSL Opium pour Homme, Guerlain Habit Rouge EDC
Aqua Universalis Forte is a sublime citrus floral. It will be perfect.
Up for sale are several bottles + splits. The price includes tracked worldwide shipping. Paypal is fine.
1. Amouage Jasmine attar - 12ml @ 95% = $175
A true beauty, congrats on the find.
That helps :)
Just purchased some Diptyique Olene for my girlfriend. For xmas I'm getting her some Good Girl Gone Bad by Bykilian.
Xerjoff Kobe, really pleased with this one.
I received Kobe last week, and while initially not impressed it has won me over. This stuff is beautiful and aside from the notes, it has a leaner and drier structure than it's younger cousin Nio....
Congratulations on both of these rare fragrances.
1oz of Gucci Nobile.
ASAQ's Sweet Blue Amber.
- Dior Privee Vetiver
- MDCI Invasion Barbare
- Puredistance M
Penhaligon's Blenheim Bouquet
MFK Aqua Universalis Forte
This line shows the ignorance of Bond as a fragrance house.
You can spray any fragrance on clothes.
Spraying on clothes will make the fragrance last longer. If you spray a fragrance on your skin, it will make the fragrance last a shorter time mainly...
Strangely enough I have been in an elevator with Kenny G.
There is a very small part of the fragrance market that is becoming very expensive, however it's a free market and it wouldn't exist if...
Amouage Al Andalus > GIT > Cool Water.
Congrats, I had this one in the early nineties and would love to find a vintage bottle.
Roja Parfum's Bergamot.
April Aromatics have natural perfume oils, check out their very reasonably priced Precious Woods.
Gently smear on the wrists or behind the ear. Enjoy.
Vintage EDC from 1987 is currently available at Jasina in Singapore.
Cashmere Oud was very good until I took a whiff of Oriscent's ouds. Damn you Ensar ;)
+1. I'd go down this route, $500 can get you a lot of nice decants and you wouldn't be missing a thing.
Aventus is one of Creed's most popular fragrances for good reason.
I picked up some vintage Habit Rouge EDC last week. Long lasting, nice projection and very refined.
Top 5 I've been enjoying this month:
1. Casamorati 1888
2. Xerjoff Fars
3. April Aromatics Calling all Angels
4. Vintage Guerlain Habit Rouge EDC
5. Roja Goodman's
Aqua Universalis Forte and Creed Jardin D'Amalfi are beautiful fragrances with bright citrus, floral and white musk notes. I would say Amouage Dia Woman is a little more complex and sophisticated,...
Reflection Man is probably the safest blind buy, however also consider Dia Man and Jubilation XXV.
