Fico d'amalfi is my favorite
Eau d'hadrien is probably the best designer lemon fragrance
Price is not reflective of longevity. It's valid because other fragrances that are more and less expensive have greater longevity. It's a legitimate complaint.
It is a very nice fragrance although, there's a musk note that ruins it for me. Kobe is similar and longer lasting (and unfortunately for expensive) and I prefer it overall.
Oolang Infini by Atelier Cologne
Neroli is my favorite so naturally, I have a lot that feature that note predominantly and have tried many as well.
L'occtaine Neroli EDP (although discontinued, it's amazing!)
It all comes down to taste because there are plenty of excellent Vetiver fragrances.
Some of my favorites are...
Sel de Vetiver
New York Oud
Mona Di Orio Oud
Serge Lutens has a lot of great fragrances. A lot have to be aligned with your taste and some from their house are unwearable. Here are some of my favorites;
Jeux De Peau
I don't get much if any vetiver out of Sel Marin. It's mainly salty lemon citrus with seaweed to me!
I much prefer Egoiste as I found it worth owning while DHI wasn't interesting enough for me. A sweet gourmandish fragrance where there are countless other fragrances that are much better in the same...
Kobe is APOM done a lot better
Don't believe the hype
This whole Oud craze really needs to move on.
Gucci Pour Homme II, Oolang Infini, Silver Mountain Water, Bulgari Black, Bulgari Eau the Vert Extreme are my favorites.
Bronze Goddess or Azure Soleil.
Don't let the name fool you, easily worn by a man and one of the best designer beach scents.
In no particular order
Portrait Of A Lady
Noir De Noir
New York Oud
Sa Majeste La Rose
dries van noten par
Extremely overpriced for the mediocre scent it is. You could do much better for a quarter of the price.
Tobacco Vanille is much better
New Haarlem is probably my favorite Bond and New York Oud is next from your list. Bleecker Street is nice but that's really all that it is. It's nothing special really.
"Wall Street by Bond No 9 is a Aromatic Aquatic fragrance for women and men. Wall Street was launched in 2004. The nose behind this fragrance is David Apel. The fragrance features leather, lavender,...
Wall Street on the other hand was gross. Cheap smelling and pairing a seaweed/cucumber aquatic smell with leather resulted in super projecting nastiness.
Dune Pour Homme
Narciso Rodriguez Musc
Bulgari Au The Vert Extreme
I don't see it as an aquatic, it's more of a citrus/marine fragrance. I can see how it doesn't appeal to people while also seeing how some see it as fantastic.
I don't see any dead fish in the...
The only one that is somewhat close to Neroli Portofino mentioned so far is Grand Neroli. It substitutes vanilla for amber.
They're better citrus scents than 1861 for me, although Kobe isn't a straight citrus like 1861.
Trolling is getting old brah
Called a few Tom Ford stores. It's not discontinued and Italian Cypress only comes in 250ml or 50ml. I can't comment on the large bottle but it's offered in the 50ml if you're interested.
So you decided it was discontinued based on rumors some sales associates told you. How often are they wrong?...
Edit: Called a few Tom Ford stores. It's not discontinued and Italian Cypress only...
Italian Cypress has only been in the 250ml and 50ml.
Pics or I'm calling shenanigans.
Hey just wondering since last time few times I was at Saks I was told it wasn't in the 100 ml, Tom Ford's website doesn't have it listed and so far I've never seen it.
I'll give them a call and...
They really have them in 100ml!? Are you sure?
They don't sell them on Tom Ford's website and I really want a 100ml to replace my 50ml in the future.
Since there is recurring theme of "people with higher standards and discerning taste" (thanks for proving my point is such a short phrase by the way) in your words completely dismissing any sort of...
Unfortunately Italian Cypress only comes in 50ml.
Honestly I think it has to do with some snobbery. The mainstream and "fragrances for the masses" are far more abundant in the fresh and aquatic category than niche houses. With a forum dedicated for...
I agree with this. Add on the fact the owner has been sued for racism as well as colorful bottles and there's more fuel for the fire. I think people fail to realize the perfumers make the scents.
100% agree. If Habit Rouge didn't have the name 'Guerlain' on it, it wouldn't be nearly as praised as it is(which it shouldn't be anyhow).
Coromandel on the other hand, is absolutely gorgeous and...
That seems odd since they're very close.
I do enjoy Essenza, it's very well done and an upgrade to the original in scent and longevity. I do prefer other fragrances over this one during the ocassion...
I love my winter scents and wear them year round but, they really seem to come out during the colder weather which stifes their tenacity.
Egoiste and Prada Amber. Own and love both
I really enjoy it and have no problem wearing it. If you think it's feminine, then it is feminine.
I find it quite unisex.
I don't get any coconut in that to my nose.
I think women's fragrances probably have more prominent coconut notes than men's. I'm with you as I'm not a big fan of fit yet I enjoy coconut and I...
After Midnight is my favorite of the four. Although, their longevity is very bad so they were a pass for me.
Ambre Narguile is probably my favorite.
New York Amber
L'air Du Desert Marocain
Yeah that's rather odd. I've sampled it multiple instances over time since I was debating on whether to buy it since it was competing with Concentre De Pamplemousse Rose, and it's always lasted a...
20 minutes seems like a bit dramatic.
I get 5-6 hours of longevity, it's last quite a while for a citrus.
It's one of my favorites for sure. Violets, leather and a lovely mimosa note.
Cuir Pleine Fleur
Dune Pour Homme
All fantastic and deserve more attention than they get
Bland and mediocre in my opinion. I didn't dislike it or love it, it is such an ubiquitous fresh fragrance. Easily passable as a designer much less at niche prices for both performance and scent.
I don't get any smoky aspects of the fragrance either. It's green, barely minty, spicy and very woody. It's more of a dark heavy green than anything light. Absolutely fantastic and I hope Tom Ford...
En Passant, Portrait Of A Lady and Bigarade Concentre are my favorites. Portrait Of A Lady is probably the best one overall.
I find them somewhat similar although, I love Mugler Cologne and I can't stand Original Vetiver so they're definitely different enough.
Pure Malt and Pure Havane are close, but I find Pure Malt more interesting and less sweet. I myself don't find both worth owning unless you are a collector.
As far as longevity and projection, Chez Bond wins.
As far as what scent is better, the one you like more.
Then why vote?
I vote Bois Du Portugal. While not my cup of tea, Bois d'Orage was very forgettable.
I love Virgin Island Water so these two intrigue me.
So far I haven't found a better piña colada type smell that does it better than Virgin Island Water.
Millesime Imperial, Sel Marin and Montauk.
This is one of my absolute favorite fragrances. It's barely minty, spicy, woody, green and the quality is clearly high. It smells reminiscent of older times yet doesn't have a dated feel like many of...
+1. I agree with everything here. There will usually be plenty of fragrances from each house you will dislike. Not to mention blind buying isn't that smart. It satisfies a mystery and impulse desire,...
If soapy and lemon is what you're primarily after, here are some good ones.
YSL Pour Homme
Allure Homme Sport Cologne (clear bottle)
Acqua Di Parma Essenza
Fleurs De Citronnier
As for other...
I agree as well.
I think it gives off a similar vibe but, I get plenty of jasmine and not hint of vanilla. Lovely stuff and pretty underrated in my opinion.
I'm excited to try this one and my sample should be in this week.
I have my doubts on the claims on how bad the longevity really is. I think a better way of really determining longevity is another's...
I notice and pick out certain individual notes a lot more. I'm more critical overall and like to compare more and more fragrances rather than just settling on purchasing something out of a several. ...
The background notes are pretty light so you have to really try hard to notice them. Apart from orange I get a faint geranium and soft woods, a slight sweetness and soft florals. So apart from the...
Dior Homme wins here for me. I didn't find the Prada Intense to be all that interesting while Dior Homme is pretty unique and of great quality. Although, between a choice of the original Prada Amber...
Silver Mountain Water is one I'd pick. Better longevity, sillage and gets more compliments for me. I find more interesting and really enjoyable to wear while Green Irish Tweed loses its appeal for...
I own and love Italian Cypress so I'm curious about Devin. I've also never sampled Halston Z14, but since italian Cypress is the only one in the line not to be made in 100ml I'm worried maybe it...
The vetiver one was quite good although, nothing that hasn't been done before. A very natural lemon citrus with a somewhat restrained vetiver.
The rose one is one of my new favorites from the line....
Then why send something in the mail?
Not too mention his posts are on this thead only. Same account and trolling.
Some people really need attention apparently...and on a fragrance forum!? LOL...
If you're hoping to find Egoiste to be in the vein as Platinum Egoiste, you'll be disappointed. It's a completely different scent altogether. It's rosey, stewed fruits, vanilla and sandalwood. It's...
Don't let the name of the fragrance fool you, it has more than two notes. Here are just the ones given..
Tobacco, tobacco leaf, spice notes, tonka bean, tobacco flower, vanilla, cocoa, dry fruit,...
Tobacco Vanille has no mint and I'm not sure what note in it could be mistaken more mint. It lasts forever for me as well.
I think asnomia could be the problem here.
The One lasts forever and...
A very good vanilla and very vanilla prominent. I find it a bit too sweet though for my tastes.
DHI isn't a straight forward vanilla scent at all, in fact it's more a part of the background. If...
I think the whole limited edition is more of a test of which ones sell the most and those will be in their rotation completely.
Virgin Island Water
At the Beach 1966
Bronze Goddess/Azure Soleil
Bobbi Brown Beach
Set Sail St Bart's
I have no tried Clive Christian V, is it similar to Straight to Heaven? On another note, I refuse to buy any Clive Christians due to their snobbish and pretentious marketing ie "the world's most...
If Pepsi smelled of incense, tobacco, hay and was very powdery I could understand. Since its not, I have never heard anyone thinking Chergui smelled like Pepsi! I don't know what Pepsi you drink.
Voodoodanny will be short Feminite Du Bois and Dior Homme Sport !
I haven't really heard much about this fragrance probably due it being an exclusive for the house. Although, the notes sound very promising with it being a fragrance about violets and leather. It...
I'd say its pretty simple. Massive marketing coupled with exaggerated claims of quality and luxury, as well as easy to like fragrances. A small niche company may come out with the best fragrance, but...
I'd snatch up Parfums De Nicolai New York and Serge Lutens Ambre Sultan and those little trex arms wouldn't be able to snatch them back.
Perhaps they're getting rid of as much stock as they're able? They may not be producing anymore, but they may try to still sell them all while they can.
Saks Fifth Avenue has the new bottles on...
I much prefer Millesime Imperial to the others. Bleu De Chanel is too fruity, screechy and just annoys me. Allure Homme Sport just comes across as uninspired and umbitqotous to me.
Don't let others dictate what you buy, let your nose do that.
Many say Vetiver Extraordinaire and Guerlain Vetiver are amazing, but I don't like them at all while I really enjoy Grey Vetiver. The...
As do I.
Gucci Pour Homme II without a doubt.
New York Amber
New York Oud
Eau De New York
These are my favorites from the line.
Try Bulgari Soir and Bulgari Soir Extreme. Most seem to think they're too similar to own Oolang and the Bulgari.
Portrait Of A Lady, En Passant and Bigarade Concentre are my favorites from the line.
Portrait Of A Lady- Rose, patchouli, incense and raspberry with other spices. Long lasting, very balanced and...
