Ed Hardy Love is...
D&G The One
50ml of Valentino Uomo
CH Men and Chic I own and really enjoy. Had 212 VIP and sample of the original 212, didn't like 212 and VIP was nice, but weak.
I turn 40 next month and sweet scents(fruity/gourmand/ect.)are generally my favorite....Black XS/Diesel OTB Tattoo/1 Million/CH Men/D&G The One are just a few off the top of my head that I wear a lot...
Midnight In Paris
Yeah, Amber Man is a good one if your into drier, less sweet, amber/oud combos. The only knock is it doesn't last that long. I also had Catalyst, but it was too much clove and other spices...too old...
Like others have said, not a great idea to spray the front of neck...because it will lead of olfactory fatigue. I spray the back of my neck personally and that works well:)
Black XS Potion and Valentino Uomo for me
Midnight In Paris
I own the 2013 version and like it. I had heard the rumor that the 2013 and 2014 scents were the same, just repackaged?(who knows though?) Like all the summer variations, it has strong similarities...
2-4 sprays, but the usual is 3. One to the chest, one to the back of the neck and then usually one to the front of my shirt....and 90% of the time, this is good to go!:)
Polo Sport and Hugo....loved both so bought them both at my local Macy's back in '95!!!:thumbup:
JPG Kokorico By Night
Dior Homme intense
Polo Black for me as well
Only when it's mixed properly. It adds a lot to compositions, so I'm glad for that and enjoy it quite a bit when it's not the dominate note. But I used to work with a "natural" older lady who wore...
Wore Spicebomb today
+1 for 1million:thumbsup:
The opening of Sunrise was harsh and made me recoil a bit when I first smelt it, but the drydown is where the comparison to A&F is at. Also Sunrise has very good longevity. I will say, I never got to...
Only a two word post??? This isn't like you at all Tim?!<bg>
Diesel Plus Plus
Diesel Only The Brave Tattoo
Love and Luck today and CH Men for this evening
Can't you still moonlight as a rockstar on the weekends?!:thumbup:
I thought it was pretty good out of the Bond's I tried, but the "greenness" of this scent would sometimes be overwhelming and get on my nerves.(was really hoping to get more blueberry out of this)...
Boss In Motion
I've got my back-up bottles down to seven right now. I figured since I have yet to finish one bottle of ANYTHING, it was time to start selling some off;)
Mandarina Duck Pure Black
I started like a lot of guys with only a couple different scents, usually bought for me by the girl I was dating at the time. And I only wore them on "special" occasions like dates and such. It...
For me The One is the closest thing to a "perfect" scent that I've found so far.(with CH Men not being far behind:) ) But I'm still very doubtful that there is any such thing as THE perfect...
I blind bought this one too because of all the positive reviews and I thought it was gross and couldn't get rid of it quick enough. Thankfully the one time I wore it, it seemed to have pretty weak...
Smells great, lasts long and is a big time compliment getter....fantastic frag IMO and probably my favorite from the Chanel house.
Vera Wang for men
Boss In Motion
Congrats, you got a great scent! I love this one and was bummed I waited so long before I blind bought it myself. Sweet and unique with HUGE longevity and big projection. The only issue I have with...
Born Wild for today
I like and own By Night...it's sweeter, less earthy and more "safe". It's a really winner for me....if you like LIDGE, I honestly don't see how you could dislike this one.
Yes sir, that's McKenzie pass...we go over to the wet side of the state every fall when the leaves turn.:thumbsup: I've got a buddy that moved from Cottage Grove to Austin about 5yrs ago. He said it...
Own both, but still like 1 Million better. It's right up there in my most complimented scents and for good reason, it was a game changer when it was released.:thumbup:
Scored a 1.7 of the first Penguin frag at Target last night for a little over $10. I'm fairly impressed...nice long lasting, sweet vanilla with apple and musk scent. Good score for the price...
Same with me as well.
CH Men hands down....absolutely LOVING this stuff right now!
I own it....it does remind me of L'Homme Parfum Intense, only I like this better. However on my skin it unfortunately isn't that strong in projection and only average in longevity. Which is...
Allure Homme Sport lasts and projects a long time on me, plus it's one of my most complimented scents....so I'll go with that. Edition Blanche and Eau Fraiche are great as well.
I get more of a Pure Malt vibe from Animale Animale myself....either way, awesome cheapie!:thumbsup:
Totally agree with you! Haven't tried a ton of Bond scents, but this is by far my favorite. Thought it was FBW so I found a 100ml tester bottle for a great price and picked it up a couple days ago....
1 Million.....but if it's warmer out it would be Aventus or Scent Of Peace
Hands down it's 1 Million for me.
Haven't met a woman who didn't like the smell of it and is among my top compliment getters.(AHS and Curve being the others) It also projects and lasts a VERY...
BOOYAH!!! I'll rock a "made for a woman, but strong enough for a man" fragrance myself tomorrow! :thumbup:
I sure hope not, since I just bought and started wearing my first frag marketed for a woman!:thumbsup:
Well it worked, he got you guys attention! He must of had some interest in someone at your table....bow-chicka-wow-wow!:thumbsup:
I also bought a bottle of the Parfum version and was surprised just how weak the projection was.....the longevity however, was terrific IMO!
Definitely this for me as well!!!
The one I couldn't stand and had to sell was Burberry Brit....YUCK!!!
Yeah, their customer service has always been top notch the few times I've needed them over the years:thumbup:
Never had a problem with FragranceNet until last week when I got a completely empty bottle of M. Micallef #31. I opened the parcel locker and thought, "man, this package feels LIGHT...is there even...
Hmmm....probably Chrome for me, something about that nasty metallic note that makes it seem sterile to me.
Hands down it's Paco Rabanne Ultraviolet Man....very weird scent that feels like it could be from the future!
Givenchy Play Intense
Definitely Queen by Queen Latifah...awesome uber long lasting sweet/boozy vanilla and tonka with smokey undertones. And less than $10 for a 100ml's!!!:shocked:
Whoa Chuck, awesome score! Good for you!!!:thumbsup:
The only thing these two share, is a similarly done sweet note IMO. But one is a sweet leather scent and the other is a sweet watermelon/pepper scent. But to my nose there is a slight "family"...
Yes, FragranceNet is 100% legit....their prices are so good because they sell "grey market" frags. Absolutely nothing wrong with them at all, other than the fact that they maybe some old stock here...
100ml Bond #9 Scent of Peace
Yeah, same here. She especially hates anything with patchouli....I get the biggest "yuck" reaction when I wear the likes of LIDGE or Kokorico By Night. But I love the warm chocolate goodness of these...
Unless it's got Oud in it, I will most definitely be looking forward to trying this one!:)
Started the day with Insurrection Pure for church, and now wearing Bond #9 Scent Of Peace
This is the only Bond scent that is FBW to me....smells great, gets compliments and the longevity and sillage are absolutely amazing!!! When all my samples are gone, I will get a bottle of this....
The highest rated one here on Basenotes used to be Azzaro Pour Homme....when we were on Huddler format for that short time, it used to have them ranked.
Absolutely this! You'll dig it:thumbsup:
Yes, CH men is something special IMO. Of your list, I've only tried 212 VIP and it was weak on me. Smell was good and similar to Halloween Man, but HM lasts MUCH longer and is way cheaper. However, I...
Like you, I own this fragrance and wasn't very impressed with its scent or performance. But then I read a thread about how this opens up and comes into its own when it gets HOT out. So I started...
Diesel Fuel For Life Spirit
Black XS Potion
Own both....prefer the scent of CH Men over LaNuit. CH Men has gotten me a couple compliments the short time I've owned it....oddly, La Nuit has yet to get me any compliments?!:shocked: Both scents...
Yeah I know "best celebrity scent" probably doesn't say a whole lot or inspire much confidence. Probably should have went with, "one of the best low cost scents I've tried"lol
D&G The One
Tous in heaven
Ferragamo F pour homme black is nothing but tonka to my nose!:) Also Perry Ellis M is strong tonka with star anise...very nice and long lasting! And Mandarina Duck Pure Black is tangerine and heavy...
....Queen by Queen Latifah!!! Wow, what a wonderful surprise....really a great oriental gourmand! And best of all I got a 100ml tester off ebay for under $10 shipped to my door. If you like big, bold...
Love and luck
Diesel Only The Brave Tattoo
I like La Nuit's smell MUCH better than Bleu's.(only keep Bleu around because my GF likes it so much;) Bleu's longevity is way better on my skin that La Nuit's and the compliment factor I've found is...
Holy Moly man, that's quite the haul....your gonna be one busy, good smell'in dude!:thumbsup:
