Yes, sometimes you can find very good stuff. I bought a 12ml mini of Patou pour Homme, for 15 bucks, at the german ebay site!
Do you have Domenico Caraceni?
Habanita lasts forever. So does Desert Marocain. And Kouros.
They last until you shower. Even if it takes a week for you to shower. :)
Is it a sharp, tart, green smell? Like the Diptyque?
The bottle is awesome, especially the cap!
How do you compare its berry-rose combination with that of L'Ombre Dans L'Eau?
A perfumist can probably answer this....I would guess that the change is small, but I have no data to substantiate this claim. :)
I am afraid of Kouros. I really fear this perfume. I don't know how to react to it.
I always buy the 3.3 OZ, because it is a better value. The price per ml drops considerably if you buy a larger bottle. Also, if I die before using the entire bottle, my nephew will inherit the...
Pino is the supreme bargain.
I've tried many many rose perfumes in my short period as perfume lover. But to my nose, the rose notes in these perfumes are quite different from the real rose note. I mean, the note that you get...
Yes, yes, they do ship to usa. I ordered it myself.
But Mclrmind, you can still buy it. They are accepting backorders and it takes only 2 weeks! Do it, man.
I had a great experience with escentual.com . You can trust them. They sent me the right perfume!
Mrclmind, You have to be brave and buy it here:
I would help if I could......I never did the change!
What do you want to put in place of the old pic?
Guys, the LALIQUE bottles are gorgeous!
I hate the medicinal blast in the beginning, but the drydown is gorgeous, I really like it.
I recommend all to try Habit Rouge EDP for a more natural oud note.
I think I bought mine at ultrafragrances.com . I have 3 bottles. It is a delicious perfume for the summer.
I love white flowers. I even drink jasmine tea all the time, because of its fragrance.
Pino Silvestre is under rated. It costs 13 bucks but it is worth $50. It has quality and extremely low price....it should receive more recognition!
I have myrre ardente and Eau DHadrien, and I love both. My sister in law also loves Hadrien and I always bring a bottle to her as a christmas gift. I think Hadrien is an anti-depressant perfume. It...
It is a lightweight green melon thing. I do love it too. it has perfect balance and is ideal for a stroll in the park during summer.
Dior --- Eau Sauvage
I don't care all that much for the other houses.
Me too. Nowadays I am selling more than buying. And in very small quantities. I've stabilized the collection.
I agree with your view, Sculpure, of course.
P.S. I remember reading a post very much like this, in the archive.
Sculpture is basic saying that we are all addicts, and we can't simply interrupt our addiction. We need the thrills of collecting. We need to try and buy compulsively.
We even lie to ourselves,...
And Encre Noir is purer, more natural, without the medicinal blast of M7.
The base of M7 and the base of Encre noire have more than a thing or two in common.
Don't do it, man. It wouldn't work.
Of course we can. I've been to Hammams, to normal saunas, to gay saunas, and to in-house saunas (at my parents and friends' houses). Saunas are part of my life and my adventures!
He will have a very hard time citing a D)
That is the best approach, Young Dro! :)
There is also a dreaded C option:
C) To make the perfume more attractive to current mass consumers.
From reading the posts here at basenotes, it seems that perfume companies always make their perfumes worse when they are updated/adapted/re-released/reformulated. They either tame the perfumes and...
I do everything online. I find that SAs only make it more difficult to buy what you want. I do study a lot before buying and I do frequently ask for samples online.
By doing everything 100%...
Hi, I bought a bottle recently but the perfume was ok. I do love this perfume. I think it is superior to Pino Silvestre. It was created by a italian nobleman, the father of Luchino Visconti.
Do you like it better than Parma and Vieille? I never heard of this one before....I'm curious.
It is a modern adaptation of a prelude by chopin. Jack Nicholson plays this same prelude on the piano, in the movie "Five Easy Pieces".
guys, is the 10 oz bottle filled with cologne? I just bought this one at 1stperfume.... I hope it is not the EDT. Also, do you know if the cologne can be used as an after shave?
Yes, there is a large group of mediocre perfumes that sell a lot. These are the ones.
Thanks PerfumeAddict. Perfumes are like love affairs to me. Food is too.
I have a large amount of Eau Sauvage, and I think it is the perfect fragrance for travelling. You can wear it with a bathing suit, you can wear it with a tuxedo, and you can wear it without wearing...
I had a bottle of polo in the beginning of the 90's, and I bought a bottle recently. I could not find any difference!
I still think that concepts like fidelity are good things. Fidelity exists. It is just a matter of finding someone or some perfume that you love and really stands out.
P.S. I use a beard trimmer, set at position #1 in order to trim my eyebrows. I use a basic tweezer to pluck them. It works great.
I have thick eyebrows, and now that I am over 30, I do trim them just a little bit, and pluck the ones in the middle, near the nose. This procedure does make me look younger.
My holy grail is Hammam Bouquet. I love it forever. I still like diversity and I wear many perfumes....but my heart belongs to HB.
I think it is perfectly possible to live and be happy with fewer than 100 bottles. Any one can survive with 100 bottles. You just have to be selective and get a lot of samples.
I am more sensitive than you... Usually my stomach gets ill even when I smell the cap or my wrist. This happened with Rive Gauche, Opium PH EDP, Z-14, Grey Flannel, and to a lesser degree with Kouros.
The averagest fragrance is the one that sells more.
Which fragrance has the highest sales figures? That is the most "average" one for sure.
Of all the hundreds of perfumes that I have tried in my life, hammam Bouquet is and I believe always will be my favorite. I think it is a work of genius. it remains truly original after all these...
Whenever I find a perfume or a place that has the smells that I remember from my childhood, I get kind of paralyzed. I feel genuinely touched, with a nostalgic feeling, a mixture of sadness and...
Also, I was told that the middle-east ouds have a medicinal topnote. But I haven't confirmed this yet. I don't have enough money right now. I will test it someday.
Yes, my most powerful oud oil does have a barnyard note. It is a manure note, basically.
When I was a kid, I used to spend my vacations in a farm. I know what a barnyard smells like, and my oud...
Do you think maybe they just forgot to put the pine note in it? I mean, on the promotional thing.
I like Opium for women, it is truly good. But Opium for men makes me want to throw up. I don't know which note causes it, but I think it is horrible. :(
Are there any truly successful, positive reformulations? It seems that most of the reformulations have a negative outcome, at least in the opinion of the connoisseurs.
Hi Badulfita, here are my rings. Sorry, the photo is not so good.
I forgot to mention that a masterpiece must be innovative.
If a masterpiece is a copy of another, then it is not a masterpiece. It is a copy.
I like the "Bulgarian" perfume Eau Thee Verte. It is delicious.
I have dozens of cufflinks (including some exotic ones), tie clips, and two rings. One is a signet ring, made of sterling silver, which I intend to engrave with the greek owl, a symbol of knowledge....
Would the niche perfumes ever become a mass market product, even if the niche companies invested heavily in marketing? I have my doubts. The thing is, the niche companies have more freedom to make...
A masterpiece is a perfume that is considered a masterpiece by a good number of serious perfume lovers. This is the usual definition. But each person should choose his or hers own masterpieces. I...
Iez, I did some research on my own and you are absolutely right. Nicotine is easily absorbed by the skin. I will try the denicotinized product...
I've never tried the Petersen tobacco, is it very...
I never measured my .... and I never counted my collection. I guess it is more than 50, but certainly fewer than 100!
He was cute and androgynous. Does anybody know who his mentor was?
It is ok, Mathematics. :)
My ouds are indian, the hindi ouds.....
The bottle is cute. Very much like a sophisticated cell phone.
I just don't agree with them when they say that it could be worn by women. I don't think a woman can pull it off.
I LOVE Pino silvestre. It is probably the best bargain you can find. A truly excellent perfume for less than 20 bucks.
But mathematics, I have two oud oils, pure oils, and they do not have the weird medicinal blast of M7. They are balsamic, sharply woody, animalic, "sweaty" and even fecal. But they are not medicinal...
I would turn straight and hit on you in case you wore Hammam Bouquet. HB is the best rose scent.
He must be depressed, poor guy.
I read many of the posts about fragrances with the Oud note, and it is clear that when someone talks about a popular oud fragrance, many people think of M7. But the problem is that M7 has that...
Yes Dimitrios, I tried the cherry cavendish and the black cavendish. I think that some pipe tobaccos are as good as fragrances. They are delicious, warm and complex. I will try to make my tinctures...
Ruggles, you can buy Alt Insbruck here:
Thanks so much Odysseus and Mrclmind for the good info! I do love the simple but classic and delicious original FERN accord. I hope it were more popular. It is like what happens in the music market....
I tried to like it, I really did. But when I first applied it on me, I felt really, really sick. Seriously. I thought it was horrible.
The only good thing is that it was easy to sell, because so...
Yeah, I see what you mean. But isn't it such a good opportunity for cheaper brands to release these well established fragrances? The fern accord has been in the market for many many decades. So why...
I tried Caron PuH... I can confirm that it is not fern. It is vanilla and lavender, not fern.
I need FERN. The original accord!
In daily normal life, I use a compact leather keyholder that has places for keys and cards. I can put cash, ID, one VISA card and my health insurance card in it.
When I travel or when I need more...
Thanks so much!
The weirdest I ever did was to apply on my armpits and the back of my head.
Folks, we know that the fern accord/recipe is one of the oldest. Traditional houses like Penhaligons and Trumper have their own fern fragrances which are quite similar. But these classic ferns are...
Equus is the smell of a lumber yard. Pure wood shavings. I found it pretty boring. I recommend you to buy Encre Noir instead....
Good Life, could you describe Alt Insbruk for us? I saw that a canadian website was selling it, but I could not find reviews about it....
Pino Silvestre is incredibly cheap and a pretty good perfume. One of the best representatives of the pine note. You don't need to buy blenheim bouquet to learn about pine. Acqua di Selva is another...
Please trust me, I've tried many. But I found the true one here:
(I am not associated with this store in any way)
It's because good pipe tobacco is already kind of complex. My cavendish has vanilla and chocolate and other notes together with the tobacco!
I tried Miel de Bois and I thought it smelled more like honey than honey itself! It's a paradoxical cologne.
Folks, would it be possible to create a Pipe Tobacco cologne by simply immersing pipe tobacco into perfumer's alcohol for a long time, and then filtering the solution? In case you think it would...
I love the tobacco in it, but I think it could be improved if someone made a hardcore version of it, without sweetness in the base. I read here that the "guilty" ingredient is Tonka Bean.
Try these two guerlains:
Habit Rouge EDC
Extra Vieille by Roger Gallet
Creed Bois de Portugal
It is very easy to try out the popular aquatic perfumes, because they are available in almost every store. I tried most of them, but the only one that I tolerate is the original, old version of...
