Patyka Fougere for me.
I've got a bottle of LR and used it this morning because I felt like a splash application on a warm sunny day.
I agree with you that it's not a lavender prominent juice, and indeed the...
Whatever WildThingy wears.
Two scents today. I got up early, put on CdG Vetiveru, and went to a beach. Stayed there a while feeling great with summer. Now I'm home, re-showered, and wearing MPG's Baime.
These are the blues that come with Basenotes activity: no one else can buy you fragrances anymore without causing you dread.
Before BN you'd say "oh that's fine honey, anything will be just...
I would give it entre into The Order of the Double Leaping Kangaroo and Songbird Rumble Strips.
I have to admit that I like the stuff, and liked it a lot ten years ago. The flanker though, Higher Energy, is the worst Dior scent ever.
That and Luke, it is your destiny!
Great posts, Noggs. The truth.
The answer is yes, you're going to go down this long dusty road and settle back where you started in a few years. No doubt about it. Why? There are two reasons.
1) Standard hero narrative. ...
I'm wearing a very green vetiver oil a kind and generous Basenoter sent me from Pakistan. I love this in today's heat.
I think you're applying the juice of the viles poorly, DS. Instead of using a cotton ball (which will absorb the liquid) concentrate on splashing, tipping, turning over, the vial directly into your...
I couldn't agree more.
I don't have a single one of the twenty.
It's good to see so many of us have and want to comment on this great juice.
Zz, I've read the same posts you have (in this thread and history) and I just don't get the same sense of the member's intentions that you have. I think you've got it wrong and I think you're...
Az, it was Julian or IPFTN, IPaidForThisName, who started and wrote lengthy MPG reviews in the link I posted. Great stuff, you're right. Scentemental weighs in briefly praising his stuff too.
Yes I do, Zz, but I think you're rather alone in your conviction in this case. I've been reading lots of post for lots of time here and reading this one it looks to me like you're the one here with...
Sorry to keep posting to this, but I found my introductory post to that thread, and I'll post it here. Also, it looks like the house referendum thread itself was lost somehow, but members made a new...
Blast, I can't find that old thread. Should be from 2006, and be part of the "House Referendum" series which includes L'Artisan and YSL only, but blast it I can't find it. Maybe I'm confusing it...
We used to have a good thread describing many of the scents from MPG, one that I started and stickied at the top as part of a series of house-round-up themes, but the search engine doesn't bring it...
I'd say bring the Wild Aoud for sure since it's a favorite, but because I'm who I am I say add Guerlain Vetiver to the mix. If you get there and the other things seem heavy suddenly, not that they...
Score! It does feel great doesn't it? Like having a smell mirror show you how good you smell to the world.
Great news. No doubt the first compliment is long overdue.
Not a skin scent for me either. Pretty powerful sillage I think.
Aww DoubleZed, look who's talking. I think you are highly discourteous here, and make a post that will drum up more heated discussion while it's not worth it.
It's just not.
Day two of CdG Vetiveru.
A friend gave me a big hug yesterday and remarked that I smelled really great. CdG Vetiveru onward!
Ouch. I almost voted Givenchy for those reasons but went with Dior. Close one. I'm glad someone stuck up for Givenchy though.
Yes, the bold-faced lie of it is striking.
Yes, the bold-faced lie of it is striking.
CdG Vetiveru for me today.
Why would the "status" matter? Would they be more valuable or prestigious to you if they weren't in pharmacies?
I'm game. Can't hurt a thing. I'll be glad to try and review Wooznibesque.
Might check your dates. Rochas Man is from 1999 and New Haarlem from 2003.
Best to check things like this before posting.
I've got to agree with these two. I'd also especially stress Eau Sauvage, Yatagan, Caron Pour un Homme, and Habit Rouge edc or edp.
Damn straight my friend! Drop me a note anytime I can help out with anything and maybe we can pick a scent we mutually hate/love or whatever and do a fighting review thread on it.
As the poll will show, I voted TdH edt.
There are others that are worthy, very nice, and superb, but you've got all your life to pick them up later. The fact of the heat in your country decides...
Wish I could say, oh Sorcerer, but it was a few years ago I sniffed a lot of the Florises in a shop, paying special attention to #89 and #127, but can't remember them. They didn't hit me as powerful...
Thanks, T_C, I always enjoy your thoughts and reviews. I never get tired of a chance to disagree with you, and I hope you find it as worthwhile as I do.
Hey there. In all best humor I sure want to say those who hate Grey Flannel are good people too and likely love their loved ones in all the righteous and upright ways.
I'm looking forward to...
Of course I think this is a good idea, but I wonder what way to get it going will work best, and make the most members here involve themselves.
After reading your post, Lian,...
L'Artisan Parfumeur's The Pour un Ete for sure. Jasmin and some citrus.
Also see if you can check out Givenchy Insense because that's a wonderful citrus and floral.
Yes, Shaheen, I was making a joke reapplying the original logic of liking Aventus to your answer. Just being smarmy. No confusion or misdirection intended.
Thank you Bon3z!
Yes but don't you really love Eau d'Orange Verte only because it's Hermes? I think we all really know that's the reason.
If it's going to be Saturday, when do we get to start walking around with our penises out?
I think this is the movement that even has the time of day when the world will end tomorrow (six pm if I...
Bigsly, can you describe your best dress? It's not some gingham thing is it?
A lady with the priviledge to date the two of us--not at the same time of course--will find us two different men indeed.
Thanks for the great chat.
Make my laughter stop now!
Maybe the source of the confusion is my use of the word "trustworthy" and how one wants a scent that will say that to the smeller. I was saying that pretty casually, and you're absolutely right that...
Ha! All three of us were writing to each other at the same time!
Well I'm unfortunately a single guy and I wear a lot of vetivers--maybe Dorje's schooling me right! Let's all get together, smoke...
Good and central questions, Dorje. I guess my answer would be yes and no. In the same way many newbies here say they need to find three types of scents, one for work, one for weekends/relaxing, one...
Sure brings up a lot of the same threads again and again. Maybe they can all be melded into the already mammoth one. They all seem to be repeats of the same comments.
In these circumstances I always plan on being very upright and conservative smelling. I want to smell trustworthy, not yet smell like an owner of satin sheets.
I pick straight up and direct...
I don't think I could believe in gods so cruel.
Sorry I didn't see this post until today. Andy, I didn't mean to imply that you had been too casual with the term fresh at all, and I regret that my phrasing could have suggested that. I meant it...
Does it smell like royalty playing peasant by chance?
YSL PH HC.
(Yves Saint Laurnent Pour Homme Haute Concentration. The one I love because the abbreviation looks like chemical code.)
Man alive, where do you come across these strange amazing bulldozer scents, Aromi? You make me think Montana must be filled with hidden shelves of masterpieces in old dry goods stores frome the...
Thanks to everyone for the kind and helpful comments. Replying is now difficult because there are so many to thank and so many good observations that I just giggle at the chance to play with.
Like Petruccijc I'm in an Alain Delon: 47 Samourai. It's not that great, but Petrucci's selection is.
With the way they qualify their answers they tell you to put the breaks on, but you just want to rush ahead to the direct answer you’ve asked for, dang it--what’s all this send out for samples stuff...
No one asked for a recommendation ever wants to encounter this response--Gee, no thanks to you man, I tried what you said and lordy, it’s NOT what you said. No. Thanks.
But the requests for...
Let me tell you a story. It starts with how perfect I think Dior’s Eau Sauvage is. Let me elaborate: it’s beyond perfection. It’s what I wish the bounty of nature’s air smelled like for every...
Plenty of good burps then instead!
(I'll put together some citrus scent thoughts and post them tomorrow I expect.)
Which of those dishes smelled the best?
You you you you you willll will will will will like like like like like Guerlain Guerlain Guerlain Guerlain Vetiver Vetiver Vetiver Vetiver obey obey obey obey obey! ! ! ! ! !
In all honesty I have to say I think it's cool that Alain Delon has a line of fragrances under his name. Sort of cool for Omar Sharif too. Luciano Pavarotti as well. Pretty tacky of Andy Warhol,...
No, I don't think that's right.
It looks to me like you're calling BN an echo chamber.
For me too.
Heck yeah, all the time: Diptyque Olene and Givenchy Monsieur I'd add to the above lists.
The real problem I think is the too casual use of the word "fresh." I think we use the word less here...
For me it's more about talking about fragrances and thinking about fragrances in our lives, no longer much about purchasing them. So what attracts me here isn't purchasing spurred.
In no way.
Wow, that's a good deal on this fine scent.
On me it's got a great metallic drydown which I think is the cardamom. Awesome scent in all ways. I still think about and give thanks to the BNer who...
Quorum. Oh yeah.
I agree with Miguelca, and I looked over your list but didn't see Eau Sauvage--blast! I'd say that's the ticket. After that I'd say L'Occitane's Vervienne would be good, but it'll be gone from your...
A feminine men's scent. Well that's sure a new request. Haven't seen the subject ever before. I'm afraid one enters into crude and dumb stereotyping when coming up with a conclusion; for example,...
Oh heck, it's just perfume. Two houses with magnificent products. No one says you can't wear the other if you vote.
It's just perfume and talking about it.
L'Interdit de Givenchy edt for me.
What's the cliche? Buy Guerlain for the wife and Caron for the mistress? Can't remember for sure if that's it. The poll results sort of suggest you all (I voted Caron) are a bunch of...
Lionheart, you should be aware that most every newbie here comes in gangbusters asking what from this house somehow fits his personality.
But try out the heavy, older style, leather, loud,...
Sounds like you have two scents you really like. Would that everyone would find such and find contentment there.
Sort of makes questions of "taste" irrelevant, I think, since you're happy...
Does Guerlain have a brand new yuzu scent targeted to men? No? I didn't think so. 'Nuff said. Obviously Caron wins this hands down.
I want to thank all you guys for your very thoughtful turning over of my question. I also want to thank Surfacing for his kind words!
Fresh Index's Cucumber Baies is nice, but just in the okay range. No mind blower.
S.T. Dupont Pour Homme for me.
This is a good floral.
Ow, I voted, but it felt like hitting myself with a hammer.
I see the question in many threads here: "I need recommendations, and I'm in college," or some phrasing very like. When we think about it, I really don't think it means much, and I'll explain, but...
I'd like to know your source for any info like this, Neo.
Good decision. Get BdP.
On NS though, I had a bottle and traded it away because sometimes the juice from that bottle lasted all day, sometimes it was gone in an hour. A complete letdown even of...
I love the weird twist off on these bottles too. Never had it in any other bottle. Fun to wear and fun to open and close! No way to lose.
I once caught a whiff of the first Faconable and it reminded me of Iquitos. Might be worth a try, but it might have been a one-time-only manifestation for me.
Too many to go count now, and certainly too many to remember off hand.
Why do I have/wear them? They rock and I love the way I smell in them.
I'm in a Caron too: Pour un Homme.
You see? There is something better than Kenneth Cole Reaction after all!
Really fun post and fun news, CJ. Glad to have the joy of reading your stuff again.
Stewart is The MAN!
I'll have to add a plus one to this idea.
Guerlain Vetiver edc and L'Artisan Parfumeur Voleur de Roses.
Old Guerlain Vetiver edc for me, along with the great spray on deodorant!
This stuff on a slightly chilly rainy day just blows my mind.
Renato's nephew swears by Paris Hilton for Him (That's the right one, isn't it Renato?), so I say that one is tried and vouched for. It'll ge a good one to check out.
Another day for Bois du Portugal.
