london. hands down, must spray on clothes
Bleu de Chanel you'll like it more and more you wear it. I tried very hard to not like it, but was caught in its web as well as the majority here.
ADG decent with sub par projection and longevity...
Same longevity, similar scent, Prefer Versace EF.
If you must buy a aquatic and generally don't like them. I'd go with bleu just because Aqva does not get any compliments.
because ADG layers well with any fragrance say 1 million for example ... Acqua di million.
Bleu de chanel..
^ I lol'ed irl. ORLY? This will be interesting.
a light fresh scent should do the trick if you really bent on a putting on a fragrance.
^^^ This pretty much sums it all up.
On topic: neither have the projection and longevity that suit me.
If it smells like what it should then it's _ _ _ _
Getting myself in on an aventus Split via pigasus27, pm him if you want in.
Last thing I'd care about before going into surgery would be the fragrance I sniff shortly after waking up.
If you sampled these 3 enough times you would of already bought a bottle.
Heres what I do for designer fragrances that can be had in sephora /macy's. I drive to the mall, and ask for 1 sample of...
Nope they a quite different, smell it and if you find that is it unique enough in cases where Sport won't fit then buy a bottle. Although I am not a fan of Heavy lemon pie.
Cool film, generic scent
Apologizing for something you didn't do... to a group of people whom you speak with online and have never met face to face...someone really cares about their image in a "virtual" community...
this thread has inadvertently become the most interesting thread I've encounter since joining.
God bless America, and it's return policy. In Vietnam, when you bought anything as soon as you walked out the store you were stuck with the item for LIFE even if it broke on you shortly after. Abuse...
Boss Bottled : Well suited for any young professional.
College fragrance ? ctran091 specifically recommends Nautica Voyage which can be had for 14 dollars at walmart and has great reviews. It's an "normal smellingl" fruit/aquatic/fresh/safe scent....
The real question is how much does a perfume bottle cost to make from scratch and how much it is sold for. I'm pretty sure it doesn't cost 60~ dollars to make a designer perfume bottle.
I lol'ed irl.
I'd take freezing cold over blazing hot any day.
Why keep your old bottles when you don't really like them all that much anymore ?
Theres something called the return/enter key. Use it!
La Nuit de L'homme, Meh
Chanel Allure homme sport, Nice
prada amber pour homme, meh
john varvatos meh
I'd probably would trade for aventus.
Personally if you can get away with it then go...
If any of those scents you are returning has some signature scent possibly during any seasons I say no, otherwise swap them for Aventus, the only creed I'd pay retail for.
Never thought le male lovers ever dabbled with aquatic/fruit scents, let alone considered them top 3 material.
Try Burberry London, You'd be surprised.
Unforgivable Multi Plat is worth 2-3 times as much Unforgivable. It last 3-4 hours longer than the regular version and has better ingredients overall better everything. The only thing some might not...
YATCT - Yet another top creeds thread
2. Millesime Imperial
Bulgari - Man.
21 Years old
2. Abercrombie Fierce
3. Chanel Allure Sport
1. Aventus (When I get it)
I'm gonna say code simply because brit is too feminine for me. Maybe not the top notes, but in mid and base for sure.
Know whay ! Creed makes fragrances with decent sillage and longevity ?
Under radar would be Allure Sport.
Just get Fierce, why ? Because you like it and it smells good to you and supposedly to others around you.
At the end of the day what you seek to buy is a cologne that smells good. Whether it is...
Nautica voyage. If you aren't it wearing for sports then you are wearing it at every other casual place. Casual . casual . casual.
Can't seem to find anything about that.
... no doubt in a vain attempt to entice the younger crowds.
I'm seeking the king of Cinnabon, not cinnamon.
Agreed, how anyone would pay 50$ for this fragrance is beyond me. I stopped paying attention after 30 - 1 hour of wearing the fragrance, cause I assume it'd be linear. Projection and sillage...
With all being said, New harleem is a bit out of my price range.
@ slush : I get where you can feel a cinnabon vibe, but to me I picture more of a vanilla-ish cinnabon-ish that lacks warmth.
You must sample Aventus and if you can afford it, Millesime Imperial. After sampling avoid Creeds completely as the rest of the line is just meh.
I have yet to try New Haarlem, but probably would not purchase a bond 9 fragrance to begin with as it keeps getting mixed reviews on it's actual worth along with the Creeds.
people say that it has a opening which contains heavy doses of tabacco. My question is, does this take away from the overall middle and base of the scent ?
With Fall in season and winter fast approaching I'm on the look out for a scent that'll remind myself of the delicious restaurant that is Cinnabon. I've tried Musc ravaguer but that does not remind...
In before Dulla, writes 3 - 500 word paragraphs on his masterpiece that is Selection verte.
Nothing, Find something more silky/sexy.
Ever blind bought a fragrance and it turns out completely different from what the people say it should smell like. I'm not just talking about 1 or 2 notes, but the entire fragrance was completely...
If you can handle 4 hours longevity every wearing then get EAU FRANCHIE, if you want longer longevity then probably L'eau d'issey blue / bleu de chanel
L'eau D'issey and allure homme sport, both get 8 hours easy on my skin.
ordered 3 times from them and yes they are reliable.
Real to me.
Musc Ravageur is just in another level, bonds can't even compete.
Aventus in a heart beat if you don't like millesime imperial enough. Other than that creeds aren't worth the price tag after you hit the 1-2 bottle owned/own mark.
Greatest compliment getter in my wardrobe and no doubt in many others
Mom: Lancome something's something
Sister: Chloe by Chloe
I loved 1 million, but the occasions where I wore it just weren't ideal which lead me to have to return it.
Take it with a grain of salt, then proceed to frown at the person followed by asking of the reason why and what their impression of it is. I'm mostly in closer quarters settings so I minimize sprays...
Overrated: GIT, Huge price tag for smelling like fresh forest wet grass.
Underrated: Aventus, needs more hype so online sellers can carry it.
sounds like a keeper, I'm getting a bottle.
Pay $250 for a creed and what do you get in return? Longevity of 4 hours max on many scents, loss of top notes after 1-2 years, bottle color change, sub par projection, batch variability.
It's a shame the shelf life of a retail bought MI is about 2 years in terms of strength of top notes.
YEAH fierce baby, imo best/easiest compliment getter from all women. Mine has yet to change Allure sport, it'll change when I get another scent that smells as creamy and last as long.
Layer Le male w/ Angel men and include a few sprays of 1 million on your clothes
It's official, Let the Pure Malt bashing begin
Need another light feminine gourmands right away ? HM
Need another masculine dry borderline-metallic spicy scent right away ? PE
I had HM but found it way to feminine.
I can't survive PE's top...
Sold by fragrancenet. Can't find anything about this version does it have the same notes? I've only heard of the scuba version which was the...
I also agree. Getting 4-6 hours of longevity with "ok" sillage then sticks to the skin for the rest of it's life. Overrated, good thing I only bought one bottle.
I find it a bit too vanilla heavy for me.
How does one recommend a fragrance for the person based on the wardrobe, if you don't have a god dam wordrobe or a list of the fragrances you've gotten as gifts ?
I recommend Acqua di Million (...
Allure edition blanche tips the lemon scale a bit too much, but its not extremely recognizable.
It's a wanna be gourmand that doesn't accomplish anything at the end of the day.
At the current moment
Everyday : Allure Homme Sport
Office: Unforgivable Multi platinum
Date/Night out: Abercrombie Fierce
Don't know if this has been done yet. Go on it'll be fun you can go as many times as you want. This will encourage people to fill out their wardrobe and give people suggestions at the same time on...
Boss bottled for young beginners which I am. My vote
Agreed, all of the fragrances that new people know about are the ones on youtube as that is the place they are most likely to go when looking for answers or reviews. Someone should make the shift...
If lemon is ALL what you want then allure blanche edition will not disappoint.
Herméssence Ambre Narguilé by Hermés
Will never lose it's value and can only be described as one step away from perfect.
If you like a harsh synthetic vanilla toothpaste ish top with a decent vanilla drydown get le male or wise I'd stick with A men.
20 feet away ? That nuts, hows the projection when you layer it with the Deoderant, Body Spray, after shave, and shower gel?
I gave them an email about pure malt before the re-release and they repeated exactly what they said to another basenoter in an email to me, needless to say they basically didn't respond to my email.
Congrats I'm trolling very hard to hit 1k.
Funny story, A rep gave me scent strip of Jack black and I completely dismissed it because it wasn't ever mentioned in videos or on basenotes. She proceeded to say that out of all the fragrances she...
I'm voting Millesime Imperial and Aventus.
