I agree, but would go with the 3.4oz of DH
I would suggest Platinum Egoiste or Creed Green Irish Tweed for fresh green scents.
Rochas man, nuff said! it double's as a ..........., well you know.
Im interested in purchasing the Parfum Oil, anyone willing to participate in a split?
I hear an angel dies every time a fragrance breaks. you must have killed a 1000 with that one.
I want to give the Finasteride treatment a try. Do you need a prescription, if not where is a reliable site to order it from? thanks in advance.
getting rid of all my Creed's (Himalaya, Silver Mountain Water, Green Irish Tweed, and Millesime Imperial) if anyone is interested send me a PM for prices and pics.

have the same issue with 3.4oz but im sure it is 100% legit
looks just like mine besides the symmetrical issues.
Ed Hardy's Love and Luck reminds me a lot of 1 Million, also try Joop.
I agree with Body Kouros on the affordable end and Musc Ravageur on the expensive route. they both project and have lasting power and have never given me a headache, which im accustomed to getting...
Well the thing is that I realized I would never find that "ONE" scent I could ever truly be satisfied with because it REALLY has nothing to do with the fragrance, it's ALL about the hunt. But Creed's...
i think if it hadn't affected the OP there wouldn't of been a need to post a thread about it, imo but i may be wrong.
i think that (even though you might not admit it) you were actually embarrassed to have purchased a fragrance labeled "for females" because it hurt your male ego to be called out on it. fragrances...
my honeymoon period is over, I've found my scent and got a hold of my impulsive buying.
I went on a fragrance binge that started a few months ago. I've spent about $1000 but i think i've got it under control now, key word "think".
I've never heard of it but i'd go with Strellerson just because it almost sounds like Stetson.
Acqua de Gio
try Body Kouros by YSL. it isnt a niche house but definitely smells like one. if you want to go niche i recommend Amouage Reflection Man.
This is some great advice given by inscents, the only thing i can add is to stay away from the really, REALLY cheapies. they are in the bargain bin for a reason. i started by buying cheapies and know...
smells like Jergans face lotion. whats so special about that?
same here, I hate it since L'Homme is such a great scent
best and lowest priced I found and like is on ebay. PM me for the seller I've use.
testers are commonly found in department stores as the fragrance bottle used for samples. also, usually testers are more reliable to be genuine as they aren't counterfeited. (key word, "usually")
bond no 9
Warm and Fresh
Pretty much any aquatic. Acqua de Gio comes to mind
I haven't tried it but perhaps filling it with alcohol, spraying it and letting it sit for a day or two. I think its worth a shot as alcohol is cheaper than atomizers.
on authentic creeds the stem of the sprayer is white, yours is real
YSL live jazz, a cheapie but good mint
I like Gucci pour homme II, its a great black tea scent
I have to admit that I bought into all the hype. I just received my 3 sample from frederic malle and ALL I have to say is,"What a joke!" Musc ravageur smells like some type of cheap body cream,...
I had read that Riverside Drive was the most popular scent (from the bond house) for men. so when i saw a 3.3 oz. tester on fragrancenet for $65, I had to jump on it and blind buy. i was very...
You must be "that guy", funny thing about being "that guy" is that you NEVER know you are "that guy" LOL
What a tale, thanks for sharing.
CK Escape is a sexy designer fragrance that is under estimated. I've had girls tell me it completely turns them on. I don't own a bottle any more but if you have never sampled it, its worth a try.
Fragrancenet rocks, I accidentally purchased Chanel Allure Sport COLOGNE thinking it was the EDT and I returned it no questions asked. Im waiting to order a 4oz. tester bottle of MI once I see it on...
LOL Jackie Robinson (42), Im around the Michael Jordan range (23)
A fragrance shouldn't be so complicated, its just a fragrance not rocket science.
I never thought about this but it seems to make perfect sense. I would always shake my frags if i thought they had sat to long thinking that it caused some of the ingredients to settle at the bottom.
Get this, Creeds Aventus = (you ready for this?!) Versace BLUE JEANS!
So I just got a 2.5 oz. bottle of aventus and I gave it a try. Initially I got the pineapple on top but it quickly turns into...
So what was the result?
try Kenneth Cole Reaction if you enjoy designer frags.
i just started trading here on basenotes and so far I haven't had a bad experience.
in most cases, i think the fresher the better, IMO.
I find it to be different than anything I have ever smelled before but it does seem like an attention whore.
I must admit, I don't have a refined nose as others do (I'm still much of a novice) but from my first initial impression I get platinum egoiste minus the strong zest/citrus. The dry down just tones...
Its NOT about if women know what a certain scent is, its about what it conjures up. A lot of our memory is associated with smell. So if the AdG brings up negative memories/emotions of an Ex you...
Just received riverside drive in the mail from fragrancenet.com. I saw the 3.3oz tester for $74 with 15% off, so i blind bought it expecting something mind blowing but ALL I got was a weaker Chanel...
i have a small bottle of lucky you i havent worn in years, i have to re-visit it.
I agree, you can only test so many fragrances on your skin at one time. using paper first to determine if you even remotely like the scent is a what i do.
I believe what the original post was asking is if he has made a top 10 list of his perfect 10 frags. Maybe now we can get back on track.
Well said, RESPECT! I apologize for getting off track of the original thread question. It still doesnt change my opinion and im sure that is fine with Robes08 cause its just my opinion, its not fact....
Chanel's Allure Homme for men.
Creed Silver Mountain Water- Classic, sensual, casual, versatile.
yeah there is just something about him, like he is just trying to hard and comes off FAKE to me.
Luckyscent.com and theperfumedcourt.com are good for niche scents. Ebay isn't bad either but its always a gamble dealing with decants from private sellers.
I find him to be OVER-rated and try hard, IMO.....
Sooooo, any good results? Im getting Play Intense in a trade and would like to know what layers well, if any.
i dont have much exposure with niche but really enjoy Creed's Silver Mountain Water and Millesime Imperial. MI does have longevity issues but SMW last 8 hrs plus on me. im also sampling some bond no....
i think if you want to keep your fragrances out on display on top of your dresser or desk, you should keep them in the box. if you keep them in a dark place such as a dresser drawer or closet, you...
I need some helpful advice. whats the cheapest/affordable way to ship a 3.4-4.2 oz. fragrance? Priority flat rate, regular priority, parcel post??????
LMFAO, i had a similar experience not to long ago after eating some medical grade treats.
i like that way of looking at the situation. it would be funny if someone said out loud,"I LOVE that fragrance, can who ever is wearing it, put more on next time!"
So after testing out SMW more extensively, i get more of the sweet honey note. it is a very addicting smell but i just wish it could project more.
Im not sure if its still available at retailers but i know fragrancenet has it for around $50 (with 15% off code) plus shipping. if you like A*men i HIGHLY recommend you pick up Pure Malt. i enjoy it...
i havent tried Erolfa so i cant be certain what it is.
that could be a possibility, i need to sample it some more. i was already wearing MI when the samples arrived in the mail, it might of...
can only be described as smelling like ocean water and or air. i just received my 2 samples of creeds SMW and dont smell anything besides hints of what seems to be the salty note of MI. this...
Dirty English is definitely not fruity. Fahrenheit and Burberry London are also masculine.
cant forget about Thierry Mugler's Pure Malt. Smells like thick whiskey sap, if whiskey came from trees...
oh, you know for what! "wink, wink"
ive never tried guerlain but suggest you sample Creed.
I can NOT see a 15 year old wearing le male, i highly recommend that you DONT purchase it. I would go with Sean John Unforgivable or if you can afford it Creed MI instead, guaranteed "pantie...
i started by blind buying also but after a few disappointments, im now testing first or buying samples.
I think you are referring to a "gentleman" with a risky or gambling quality to him. a safe blind buy is more for the less adventurous and light on the wallet "gentlemen", such as myself.
would you recommend Marc Jacobs for men as a blind buy?
hey guys and gals, first time basenoter here. i like wearing both fragrances that i like and some just for the ladies.
i had acquired YSL's body kouros and didint enjoy it at first. i had heard...
