Hmm, maybe it was manufactured with some type of green coloration already in it and light exposure expresses that more? I don't know.
Also, lighting can make a big difference on how things look....
I own Fahrenheit Absolute. It maybe can come off as skanky or whatever, however that might not be cumin in the frag, but rather incense.
It might happen to me to where it may smell as cumin (or...
Maybe it's a first run fragrance.
If a fragrance gets released say.. January 2015, that doesn't necessarily mean that ALL (or any) of the first ones to be put out for sale are made that exact same...
Arg, I have two 2013/2014 or whatever bottles...
Maybe I'll test a newer packaging type sometime in the future.
Probably the name brand.
Call me shallow. =D
"Paid $90 on Allure Homme Sport and haven't gotten a compliment so far"
....and? Just because you bought it doesn't mean you're entitled to get complimented.
Is this a troll thread?
Now... are you referring to 2011 Z01 or 2013 Z01, or?...
Except... it's not fake?
You bought it from FragranceNet? Dude, you took a metal object and rubbed/scratched it against a painted or w/e glass bottle? Come on..
Also, that's maybe THE latest...
It's perfume though, relax. :)
Did you guys not read the actual first post?
I'm assuming it smells of Aventus. :eek:
Guys, just get Aventus and don't worry about batch number stuff.
Smell Aventus without looking at the batch code (if there even is one), and ask...
From the first wearing/smelling or so, what fragrances 'blew your mind'?
Sure, I have a bunch of frags, but perhaps a small portion was like "WOW!" initially (whether from a paper thing, the...
If anyone wants to swap their 'I' for one of the 'III' labeled ones I have, try to let me know!
I've tried one of the III labeled ones so far.
Hi, I got my little samples in recently. Except, I might have two III's and one II. They're supposed to be marked on the top of the little lids, yes? I may have been sent two III's, so I may be...
Uh.. why? Do you not think that's way overboard and wasting fragrance?
Half of 4oz bottle (120ml), let's just go with.. 60 ml. 9 sprays per ml. 60 x 9 = 540 sprays.
540 sprays / 21 (3 weeks) =...
Hm? Are they closed for a while or something? Moving? Have a link/url?
Thanks! (He was referring to Balenciaga pour Homme, if anyone is wondering). :)
I like the site integrated SOTD stuff. :) But, I don't know, maybe I'll post in a thread in the future! Not sure if I have in the past.
A thing that can be kinda 'bummy' is if you put on a...
Do you know how after you select a fragrance as an SOTD, it brings you to the page where you can add a comment and view other people's 'SOTD'?
Add some more comments! Is it from a sample, vintage,...
I own and enjoy the EdP. It's a frosted bottle (mostly?), but a date of somewhere in 2012 comes up when I put in the batch code. Not sure if December or not..
Use code 'School'
The Chanel thing isn't a hard rule, but it can be a good cause(?) for concern/a red flag. However, the website Beautyspin.com seems to be regarded positively, and they may sell Chanel stuff as well....
-Talks about Aventus.
The spacing with the X at the end is maybe how the batch code or w/e is for Le Male at least, for however many years?
Aoud Melody - Blind buy.
Thank you, :).
I'm not asking for the ingredients listed on BpH. I have multiple 100ml bottles.
Err, I wasn't saying that I thought it's still being produced. I've assumed it's older product (maybe 1999 at the latest).
I'm also not asking for a list or something regarding BpH specifically of...
Hey guys, so.. Balenciaga pour Homme was discontinued in... 1999?
I've read about it being discontinued rather than being reformulated. If that's true... why?
Was/Is there some kind of...
Has Spicebomb actually been reformulated?
Anyone to respond that has tried original (or so?) Spicebomb and newer stuff.. say... 2014/2015 batch(es)?
How's longevity? Projection? Noticeable...
Hi! I was at a family party recently, and talked with an Aunt of mine about fragrances/perfume. Turns out her current signature fragrance is Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue, however, my uncle's previous...
How old is the bottle? Is there a batch code?
Oooh, please let us know if they're doing the higher concentration thing again!
It might be this..
Black Aoud (original, Paris)
Black Aoud (original, Paris) - but 'watered down' (reformulated?)
Black Aoud (Middle Eastern marketed type that abujouda might sell) - different...
I just got Vanille and Vetyver from them. In the order, one of the samples I got is a little splash bottle of Vetyver, haha. So, I've decanted some into an atomizer. Probably not going to get to my...
Austin isn't real far away from me, :). Thank you.
Also, whoa, 1st post after joining over 2 1/3 years ago? Haha.
I just looked at stuff for my TF PB frags.
Tuscan Leather 100ml - MADE IN U.S.A.
Tobacco Vanille 100ml - MADE IN U.S.A.
On the back of the bottom piece of the 'box'.
Both purchased from...
Oh wow, I just used CheckFresh for my CH Men, and supposedly it's a 2010. Nice. :thumbup:
Mmm.. be careful, those pics might not even be of the actual bottle up for sale.
Look at the tubing inside the bottle, that might be an/the older thicker style tubing, not the current type?
A faint memory? Are you sure that it was DHP? It just came out last year.
and here I am at 26 feeling old and being worried about getting older.. haha.
Guys. I'm not saying what fragrances do you think will be reformulated.... sigh..
Basically, what fragrances do you think are so good, that you'd want to snatch up at least one bottle just IN CASE...
"just in case they get reformulated (or reformulated further)"
If you want, think of it like.. "Oh man, I better hurry and buy fragrance X now just in case it gets reformulated later on and I miss...
Hey guys, are there any fragrances you recommend to hurry up and buy 'ASAP', just in case they get reformulated (or reformulated further)?
I've been itching for Leather Oud..
That's more like it, :p
Where to start with this house?
Which ones are the gourmands, orientals, compliment getters, challenging, etc. if applicable?
Do any of you have this type of Angel (100 ml Eau de Parfum, refillable).
If so, do you have a batch code ANYWHERE on the bottle? I have not found one. I did find what seems to be 'RD' etched into...
It can be annoying when I read things like:
"The reformulation is a shadow of its former self."
"The current stuff out there pales in comparison to the vintage formulation."
"The vintage is the...
Which Black Aoud? The maybe different newer Middle Eastern type, or the OG type, or(?)?
A lot of light weights in here? :happy:
A fragrance I smelled that I ended up throwing away was a bottle I received for free from someone, not sure if it had spoiled. Oudy Woody by Surrati. At...
I'm going to be in Austin this month, are there any notable stores up there? I might try to look up to see if there's any Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus stores - but are there any other...
Figured I'd bump this thread. I just got the same batch code of Himalaya as in the OP post. Perhaps this will help myself and others get peace of mind.
I bought from Beautyspin, which as we know,...
Not sure if this is the latest one, but: http://www.basenotes.net/threads/398544-Post-a-Picture-of-Your-Scents-Edition-VII/page4
The ones that I own (bottle at least), excluding any formulation stuff, if applicable, are:
1. Aventus (69.8)
2. La Nuit de L'Homme (30)
3. Bleu de Chanel (regular or whatever, got it before the...
Thanks, :). I bought teflon tape today and applied. The atomizer stuff seemed to screw on good with my AA, but with my Acqua Viva... I can turn the cap and then it becomes loose again (with the...
I did a contact thing for who I bought it from, maybe I'll be able to exchange it or something..
Thanks. I'm not big on decanting my own personal fragrances. I don't decant if I go travel or something, for example. I did notice leakage already with my Acqua Viva today. If I wrap the threading...
Hm, are you familiar with Profumum Roma threads? From what I saw in the cap at least, they might be pretty big spaced out threads, not a bunch of smaller ones.
But basically you'd recommend teflon...
Thicker? I've maybe been reading about how thin/flexible it is. Are we talking about a different type of Parafilm? I'm talking about Parafilm M or whatever, not Parafilm grafting tape.
Well, they come with a splash cap and the sprayer mechanism separate in the package (think Serge Lutens). I don't really like this, as it doesn't seem/'feel' as sealed compared to a crimped bottle,...
I'm going to order Parafilm. Not even going to take off the cap of my other PR until after Parafilm gets here. Heh.
Edit: Hm.. except... would Parafilm be okay to use with threads? The threads...
So, I just got a couple Profumum Roma bottles in yesterday.
I... may not have realized that they don't come with a sprayer attached already. Which is kind of a bummer.
I have the sprayer on one...
I just got an order from them in today. Profumum Roma fragrances, and 'free' samples. They're an official retailer for PR...
Woooot, just got a call about the package! The guy told me he couldn't/couldn't quite make out the address? Haha. It might be here in about 30 minutes. Yessssssss!
Hey guys, so, I'm waiting on an order that's been shipped via(?) Colissimo. It says, when translated, "Your package has arrived at its distribution site". However, where? Does that mean in the state...
Okay, so mine arrived today. It smells familiar to me, and I may have figured out what that is... Thallium Black. Not exactly, but similar (judging from at least smelling from the opening of the...
You might be applying too much as well. I mean, she told you she could easily smell it, right? After like TWELVE hours.
Try 3 sprays? maybe even 2?
hednic, when you have time and if you don't mind... how prominent is the sandalwood note in Lys Toscana? Thanks!
Thanks. I have a plated one. Got mine back in 2012.
A: "Okay, I'm pretty sure now.... are you wearing Aventus?"
A: "Nice. So, are you into fragrances?"
B: ":huh: Uh, no. It was well over three hundred dollars."
A: "No shit. I...
Thanks. Aw man, I'm not sure, but maybe sandalwood was my main interest with Laudano Nero. :undecided:
Nice, thanks! hednic, you're ubiquitous here on Basenotes, haha. :beer:
Do any of you know if Ron Robinson does (or how often) any kind of promo sales?
Know of any current coupon codes?
Thanks! Not sure if this is the right place to post.. but..
I do like Back to Black! Get this... I've had my bottle since January or so of 2013.... and I haven't even sprayed it yet! :rolleyesold:
I thought about saving it (or at least initially spraying?)...
The batch code might simply be the AA1 part. :)
Well hey, 2 feet is/can be great! In general, I'd maybe rather people be able to smell/notice my scent when in close proximity to me, as opposed to across the room! :wink:
Being discovered, rather...
Thanks, :). A cheapie, Swiss Arabian Attar Mubakhar.
I've been interested in Opium pour Homme Eau de Parfum for a while, finally going to be able to try it (own it :cheesy:)! (Escentual, I may...
Hm, oh, nvm. Yeah, post back about the 1 spray thing! Let us know how it goes. :beer:
Have you tried applying unscented lotion before spraying on Aventus?
Someone help me out, isn't there a...
Hm. But, they seemed strong to you?
Not all ordered today (2 are). None have arrived yet. All blind buys.
Dude, what? of Aventus?
... try 1 or 2 sprays.. seriously. Have you tried getting anyone else to try to see if they can smell it? Maybe you've been getting olfactory fatigue? 4-6 sprays... what if...
How many of you have tried:
Sigilli - Hymba (Is this basically a sweet citrusy oriental or something?)
Sigilli - Electra (Is this pretty much an amber(gris?) scent, or amber(gris?) +...
Is the website down/offline currently?
Thanks for responses!
So far, two that I might be the most/quite interested in are Amber Aoud (Parfum/Absolue Précieux - though, I'd maybe get AAParfum out of the two... first? :grin:) and...
Do you personally get oud out of it?
