Another for Egoiste
I have sampled them on skin and like others have reported I got about 2 hours max out of them. Definitely a no buy for me especially at that price point.
FOR SWAP!!!! (possibly sale)
Byredo Accord Oud 100mil bottle 99%+ full no box.
This bottle has the original "puck" style cap not the new rounded one.
Will entertain all reasonable offers...
They spray a very fine mist cloud type of spray. I also have to spray a lot more with Roja scents than others for the same effect.
Yep it's the same juice just a limited edition bottle.
I enjoy both DH and DHI but I dont think masculine is necessarily a word I would use to describe them at least in the traditional sense of what I consider masculine. I think DH is more "masculine"...
Bump new item added
Looking for a partial or full bottle (no decants please) of Portrait of a Lady. I have lots to trade and would prefer a swap but would also consider purchasing. PM me if you can help.
I used to own it and it smells fantastic but it stayed very close to the skin on me which I didn't like. As soon as I purchased Rosae Mundi by Profumum I sold Lumiere Noire because it is very similar...
X for men is my favorite and the only one I own a full bottle of. I was lucky enough to get it for a great price but not sure I would pay retail for it.
I'm negative on this one. There is something sharp in it that stings my nostrils and really gets to me.
Opium pour homme +1
I love Antico. It's a great long lasting barbershop like scent. Happy to have it in my collection.
It could be your skin or olfactory fatigue
In my opinion one thing Joop definitely doesn't lack is projection and longevity. It's a beast in both aspects.
This is the absolute best amber ive tried. As said above it's thick and has a lot of depth. Just great stuff.
When I was at the boutique a few weeks ago the sales associate said they were going to be releasing an edt version of Cade in the near future. He could not tell me exactly when though.
I wore Osswald Aoud 1 today and couldnt disagree more. I find it fresh, fruity, and the oud is definitely there but in the background to keep it from being to sweet. I love it and find no resemblance...
Yea way too much cumin in fate for me. To me it smells like body odor and Indian food. I love Indian food but I don't want to smell like it. Instant scrubber.
I own a bottle and love it. I definitely get the resemblance to Lumiere Noire PH but it's much deeper than that. The performance is second to none also as with most of the Profumums. This is quickly...
Amber Aoud and Musk Aoud are my favorites. Aoud is nice too but it's more of a floral oud.
Nio and Kobe are nice but I was very disappointed with Uden. It just wasn't anything special and at that price point no way.
Eau de sport is my favorite version of Kouros right next to original vintage Kouros. Luckily I have enough to keep me stocked for a long time.
Montale Dark Aoud
I agree with DH and DHI. Although I don't really feel they are ever truly "masculine" at any point during a wearing. Unisex at best but still love them both.
Received my bottle yesterday and what a great scent. It's fruity and fresh with some sweetness but the oud works perfectly in the background to keep it from being too sweet. One of my wifes favorites...
I'm not sure but I think the OP might be asking about differences between Amber Aoud and Amber Aoud Crystal. There are crystal versions of all three Roja Aouds.
In my opinion, dark juice amber...
My bottle should arrive on Monday
Seducteur by Micallef
+1 Leather Oud. It's just horrible not much more to say.
Haha no kidding. I live just north of Atlanta and all we have is Saks and Neimans
I got mine from Osswalds. I think they may still have a*couple left. Just ask for Josie she is great and very helpful.
I tried Lillipur last week and have a full bottle on the way already. It really is amazing stuff. Also at $145.00 for 100mil bottle it's a pretty good value for a niche house.
Yea it it's 140 or 150 on fragrancenet
I would choose Royal Oud as well. In my opinion this is one of the most unique Creeds and very versatile. I also don't have the longevity problems others have with this one. I get 8-10 hours easily...
Profumum Antico Caruso 100mil bottle with approx 60mils remaining. This comes complete with box, funnel, sprayer, and 5mil roll on.
Asking $160.00 shipped priority in the continental US although...
As far as longevity and projection go Acqua Viva by a landslide. Obviously Balmain is a much better value but AV is the longest lasting citrus I've come across.
This is the worst fragrance I've tried thus far. To me it smells just like a circus tent or petting zoo as others have stated.
Creed OV, Roja Dove Vetiver Extrait, Dior Vetiver, vintage Guerlain Vetiver edt
Yes I own or have owned all of them
Bergamot Extrait, Neroli Extrait, Vetiver Extrait, and Scandal would all work well in the summer IMO
I totally agree with this. This is a great citrus scent and by far the longest lasting and best projecting citrus I have come across.
Ahh I see. It really is a great old school fragrance.
I'm not sure which version of the reformulation I tried but I know it was by EA fragrances and the juice was very light green. The vintage I have is distributed by Giorgio Beverly Hills and it's a...
Yea I recently accquired a bottle of vintage and it is completely different than the current formulation. It's a spicy, sweet, mossy masculine beast. I honestly don't even see how they could call the...
Love this stuff and just ordered a bottle of it
I would suggest Roseaoud and Musc by Mancera as well as Black Aoud by Montale.
They are all great but I really like Gold Man
Tuscan Leather for me
I have to go with Musc Ravageur too. I was so excited when I got a bottle of this from all the rave reviews and was not impressed at all. I sold it immediately.
Sent you a PM yesterday
Pm sent on ex idolo
Yes they feel very lightweight.
Thanks again for suggesting it Hednic!
Hey guys I received my Roseaoud and Musc today and just wanted to give an update. This fragrance is AWESOME! The oud is not as abrasive as in the Montales and is blended beautifully. The realistic...
Man I wish I could get my hands on some of these. Would be nice to know someone over there that could buy them and ship them to the states.
Thanks Hednic and thanks for the suggestion. The notes sound right up my alley!
Just bought a 4oz bottle of Roseaoud and Musc from Amazon. It was a great deal ($139.99) can't wait for it to arrive!
Ok I will check those out thank you Hednic. How is The Aoud?
Which Mancera would you guys consider to be in the same category at Montales Black Aoud in terms of that heavy medicinal aoud and rose with similar projection and longevity?
[QUOTE=insomniac;3029634]If I had such a certificate - Lubin Itasca, nothing else in my scent library smells like it.[/QUOTE
I was actually considering this one. How is the longevity and...
I'm glad you started this thread FSU because I got a 50 dollar gift certificate to LuckyScent also and was trying to figure out what to put it towards!
Wow can't wait to try this one!
I really wish some of these middle east exclusives were more readily available here in the US. Black Aoud is one of my favorite scents and love most of the ouds from Montale. Would be nice to be able...
I get great longevity of about 12 hours with Tuscan Leather. Projection isn't beastly for me but it seems to have about a foot of projection and I can catch whiffs the entire life of the fragrance.
That's awesome! A keeper for sure.
Vintage Kouros is one of my favorite fragrances
I agree that the opening may be a little strong if your not used to it but once it dries down it smells awesome. I think you will like it.
Serge Lutens Ambre Sultan
I would be grateful to get a sample of any of them besides pear and olive as it's the only one I have tried.
Black Aoud by Montale
I own it and think it's a very nice fragrance but I don't find myself wearing it very often.
I like this line a lot also. From what I've tried Tuscan Leather is my favorite so far.
Tuscan Leather by Tom Ford
With my limited experience with ouds so far a couple of my favorites are Epic Man by Amouage and Black Aoud by Montale.
Ok thanks Hednic
A little off topic but does anyone know it any brick and mortar stores carry Montale?
Ahhh that explains it then. Well I will continue to buy 50mil bottles then as it seems luckyscent has most of their Montale inventory available in 50 mils
Hey Tony yes I just bought it from LuckyScent last week and it arrived a couple of days ago.
@Ilikepeeps I guess it's possible I received older stock but I'm most sure how I would be able to tell.
Hmmmm that's strange. My black aoud lasts at least 12 hours and projects like crazy almost the entire life of the fragrance. If it was any stronger I think my nose would be blown out lol.
Thanks Hednic! It is quickly becoming one of my favorites.
I just received my 50ml bottle of Black Aoud from LuckyScent and it lasts forever and has monstrous projection. This is my first Montale so I can't speak on older batches but I couldn't imagine it...
Thanks for all the suggestions so far guys! Looks like I will have to order a bunch of samples.
Patchouli Leaves by Montale
I found the opening of cuir d' arabie very dirty and did not wait for the dry down. The rubber in knize ten is what put me off for sure. I do like fruit so I'm thinking Tuscan leather may be a good...
Thanks for the suggestions so far guys? I did sample cuir d'arabie but was turned off by the opening and had to wash it off. Maybe I should resample it again and let it dry down a bit.
I would like to add a leather based fragrance to my collection as I do not currently have one. I tend to like darker, stronger scents that are long lasting and project well. I tried Knize Ten and I...
Fragrancenet, Beauty Encounter and FragranceX are all reputable retailers and everything I have purchased from them has been 100% authentic and ive never had a question or concern.
I'm hoping to get either Cedrat Boise or Kumkat Wood by Mancera.
I am wearing it a lot lately too. It's a great scent.
I will suggest Carven Homme. A great scent with a very nice nutmeg note IMO. Chanel pour monsieur concentree is also a very nice one.
Ok thanks Hednic I guess I'll just order some samples from Min
Does anyone know if they stock these at the high end stores like Neiman Marcus or Saks? I live in the Atlanta area and would like to try them or will I have to order samples?
Ok I will check that out thanks Tony.
Thanks so much for all the help guys! I will keep you guys posted and will be getting samples very soon.
