I think you may be misremembering.
What is "Aventus"?
Aventus is in Italy, not Africa.
There is no civet note in Kouros, and never has been. Kouros is an aromatic fougère. Also, civet does not smell like urine.
Somebody on here, perhaps in a review, pointed out that it smells like bleach, and I am afraid that this is now all I get from it.
Eau de Guerlain. And the current version is perfectly serviceable. It also goes very well with the various L'Occitane verbena-scented products.
Cool Water has no more calone in it than, say, Grey Flannel, a very similar fragrance. It is not an aquatic. I think possibly the name and the color of the bottle are deceiving people into thinking...
Except of course there is no calone in Cool Water.
And Luca Turin is Satan, perhaps?
Guerlain Homme is intended for the mass market. I am not sure it is even on display in the main Guerlain store in Paris (although I did not specifically look for it).
I find it poetic.
Do it! Then return it.
At the moment, probably Mouchoir de Monsieur. Historically, definitely Vetiver and Habit Rouge, but sadly the current versions are nothing like the originals---they hardly qualify as fragrances at...
Jicky! Just kidding. Intriguingly, my favorite fragrance of all time, Guerlain's Vetiver, was launched the year I was born.
To me, it is similar to Chamade Pour Homme, but others seem to disagree.
Just check what it says on the box first.
Actually, I think I changed my mind about it. I now quite enjoy it. I tell myself the balloon effect is really "myrrh."
Eau de Guerlain. This shower gel from L'Occitane goes very well with it:
Probably Old Spice.
I hate rank fragrances.
Frankly, I would be surprised to learn it had said anything.
It is utterly revolting. Fans of Dior Homme Intense might enjoy it.
It smells nothing like paper.
Knize Ten. The existence of which I learned about on this board, by the way. Thanks, board!
I find it hardly smells of anything at all.
I also have trouble remembering things. In my pockets I find Polaroids of people I do not recognize, with "Do NOT trust this man" or "KILL this man" on them in my own handwriting, and I always wish I...
Of those two---Guerlain.
My guess would be he means "introduced recently."
That is certainly possible.
There are no, or hardly any, musks in Jovan Musk, if I remember correctly.
Where is Blue Stratos?
"Leaves of the Absolute tree," indeed.
A person who "enjoys being depressed" is not actually depressed, you know.
Vetiver Extraordinaire is a reasonable substitute for Guerlain's old Vetiver, which in its current incarnation smells essentially of nothing at all, really. It is somewhat more expensive, of course.
If perfumery was art, there would be a theoretical literature about it, like there is a theoretical literature about film, for instance. But there is none.
Lagerfeld Classic, which may be acquired very inexpensively. Although it starts out quite strange, it quickly settles down to a pleasant leather scent of the Knize Ten type.
How about if we call them "civilians"?
The mask on the cap is wood, not plastic, on the vintage bottles. That is how you tell them apart.
There has definitely been a reformulation. Vintage is the only way to go.
I know what you mean, but using the words "clean" and "fresh" about it is somewhat unfortunate, given the current popular understanding of those terms.
I believe it was just The Factory. And if "factory" is trademarked, lots of firms would be in trouble.
In any case, the current version is fine.
Seeing as how Andy Warhol has been dead for quite some time now, it does seem prudent to part with him.
This, to me, has absolutely nothing to do with the original Colonia, and is not even an Eau de Cologne in any sense of the word.
It comes from a plant, though.
Good! This will allow you to buy more perfumes.
Ha! No, what has happened is that the definition of "chic" has changed. As it does all the time, of course, though slowly.
I had no idea it was possible; I am horrified.
Is there writing in Arabic on it?
The current version is just fine.
You mean typefaces, not fonts.
I see. Single mother.
They are pretty horrible, to be honest.
You mean "eluded."
As long as no specific individuals are named, one can, of course, discuss manners as much as one likes.
Finally! Too many threads here involve boors discussing how they can make random strangers smell their presence. In reality, if others notice your perfume it practically always means something is...
Is there Arabic writing anywhere?
Different situations call for different fragrances. So if you tend to find yourself in 50+ different situations, you may indeed need 50+ different fragrances.
It is part of the craze for everything "vintage."
It is for everyone to enjoy in their own individual way.
What does the Arabic writing say? This is key.
Etro's Palais Jamais is exactly what you are looking for.
I am impressed that you can smell your anus.
Yes. The opening of Eau Sauvage Parfum is wonderful, which makes it a real pity it dries down to something rather revolting.
Bulgari Black is slightly different. I was very enthusiastic about...
To my nose, they are more or less identical. Which is unfortunate, as I do not find that rubber party balloon smell very pleasant.
To this a particular very pessimistic-minded friend of mine would respond with "They do that because they feel sorry for you."
That is not realistic!
Anyway, I own Avignon myself, and I admire it for what it is, but I am unable to think of any social situation in which I would want to, or where it would be appropriate to,...
They are smells, rather than perfumes, often reproducing recognizable everyday scents. A perfume, on the other hand, is something that creates a new sensation, something we do not recognize from...
I must admit I am impressed by Comme des Garcons with their 60+ novelty fragrances, none of which have any realistic uses, really.
Bertrand Russell, right?
It has Arabic writing on it.
Is it available in stores?
The cellophane may be fake.
Why not Aramis 900? It is a unique scent.
I, too, have wondered about this. In particular about the use of the description "fresh" with regard to aquatic fragrances. Aquatics, to me, smell like wet dog or dirty dishwater, and I really cannot...
What is this that is being implied about Santa here?
Batch numbers, or it did not happen.
I used to think everything is so vastly less potent these days. Then I suddenly remembered I used to dab some cologne on my upper lip as a teenager. This no doubt explains at least part of the...
This automatically suggests the question of what the shortest fragrance name is. The answer is π (Pi). There, I saved you a lengthy thread.
To be perfectly precise I think it is the stuff that is removed that is the male signifier. A bearded guy is not necessarily unmanly.
If I remember correctly, Armani Code itself was originally Armani Black Code, or at least in some markets. Consider the name Armani Black Code Sport Athlete, which you have now been spared.
What was their mistake?
"Lit from within"?
To my unsophisticated nose, Gomma and Knize Ten smell extremely similar. Gomma is simply a slightly milder, rounder version of the same thing.
Check if there is Arabic writing on it.
Does it have Arabic writing on it?
Aramis 900 is a work of genius. Devin is also very nice, similar to Yatagan but less food-like and more perfume-like.
Short of closing the shutters, no.
