Green Irish Tweed.
In my opinion by far less powdery than DHI. I've never felt it to be suffocating at alla, whilst when trying DHI, almost ever.
My latest real shock is undoubtedly Penhaligon's Bayolea. I'm in a real disbelief. They've built a complete men's grooming line upon this ....? It IS bad. Not disgusting, just bad.
Thank you guys, indeed. Of course I'll have a sample first. If it's more green, all the better.
I simply love Ormonde Jayne Man. However, at several places I found that the woman version -which I still don't know - is actually unisex, and is very good either. I wonder if there are guys among...
So do I. And among the top 5 ever.
1. Kurkdjian's APOM Homme
2. Boucheron Jaipur Homme Edt
3. Knize Forest
4. Amouage Honour Homme
5. L'Artisan Dzing!
Is Bayolea so weak?
Having tested about 10 from the Xerjoff lines (Xerjoff, Casamorati 1888, JTC), I find 40 Knots to be the most agreeable to my tastes. Quite unique, well-crafted, longevity is satisfactory.
I tend to agree. I didn't find the original one especially interesting, yet this new formula I do find a rather different story. Still experimenting with it, but I can see myself wearing it on a...
Is that still in production?
I've had the chance to try it at Douglas this morning. Although without question it belongs to the 'Dior Homme' family, it does exist on its own right. It's a hell of a scent, I say. Deep, dark, with...
I'm not sure, but from my recent sample I do suspect that they've changed something in APOM. I bought it in Paris at the Maison when it came out, still there are some drops in the bottle. It's as...
Iris Nazarena is a terrific scent. "The rest - silence".
I like it a lot, but longevity is quite bad.
Still I haven't found a Kilian FBW. So of these two Dia.
How different noses can be :) I have APOM, it was my signature scent for two years. Kobe however made me actually sick, I had to wash it off both times I gave it a try. Total disaster to me.
Frapin Speakeasy. Lots - I MEAN lots - of immortelle. To my nose it ruins the whole scent, but you might enjoy it.
I'm tempted to buy Amouage Gold Man. Yes, I know............ still, it's such a glorious scent. The Travel set can be bought for a reasonable price at our country's dealer. And I'm after several...
Celebrating the 1000th post! That is, claiming that no, they are quite different. Go with GIT, forever.
Vetiver turns up my stomach - verbatim. And yet, Escentric Molecules Kinski is very near to be my next signature scent. I recommend it give it a try.
For about two years I used it nearly exclusively, my first real signature scent. Now I've been running out of the bottle, I'm trying to find a new signature - not easy, so much did (and do) like it....
Only tried it once, but definitely stands out from the recent designer scents. Still I don't know if it's bottle-worthy, but for office I reckon it's ideal. Just don't try to compare to the original....
I have still just a sample, based on that I feel the same, too. I hope that spraying from the bottle, applied generously, would result in better longevity. I think this is the kind of scent which is...
... OR unless I live in Hungary.
Are you sure you're not a week late?
It's a really great scent. I don't see the comparison with Kouros, nevertheless.
I didn't find anything pleasant or interesting in it. Washed it off, will never try it again.
No wonder. Regarding what I think about MKK, to be (seriously) drunk is the only state of mind I think one would find MKK fantastic :) Just kidding boy. You've found the most important aspect of this...
Well, I don't care how many Molecule and/or Escentric Iso-propil-metil-poopil juice would come out from the lab of Geza Schoen. But Kinski is the strongest candidate to be my new signature scent. I...
Sometimes we get fed up with all our life. Sometimes with just a slice of it. I wish you that you find enough pleasure and happiness in what you still have - friends, family, anything else.
I wouldn't hurt anyone, I hope this IS just a play :) Well, so diptyque would deserve what you say...
Escentric Molecules Kinski. A hauntingly beautiful Vetiver scent. I can't smell the dirty, animalic side of it, which is mentioned sveeral times.
I miss from this list Etro's Messe de Minuit. A truly gothic, cold, almost frightening incense scent.
Only once: Kurkdjian's APOM Homme.
I never really liked any of them, but now I've found Kinski from Escentric Molecules and I dare say that Kinski is what these two should have been. I highly recommend it give it a try before you...
This is the first time I try Kinski from a sample, but I dare say I AM hooked. I never did care for TdH or Red Vetiver, but Kinski is in another league in my opinion. A very-very nice scent. It's me...
Although I tried Duro years ago, but as a can recall, perhaps that's the nearest. But Amouage Interlude is a good take, either.
Here I am :) I find Honour Man to be the best one by miles.
Now that you have and probably use Aura Maris, what's your opinion about it? I'm on the fence...
More generally, about all the niche houses I've come across I find rather disappointed. When I read threads like this one, and find different names, I usually think "that's right" and "well, how true...
Profumum Thundra. Look what's written at luckyscent about that frag - I completely agree:
"A solitary walk through a cool, damp forest, just after the rain. You can smell the rich earth as it...
With due respect I don't clearly see why are there so many vetiver-mentions in this thread.
Bud, there are times when we basenoters don't understand each other :) I've just seen that the 'best man scent ever' is Aventus. I can't see myself to list it within the best 200... it seems that not...
I've been experiencing with my Ambre Topkapi, but each time I find it synthetic. You don't feel it?
- - - Updated - - -
For a time I have one and only answer to these amber-questions:...
I found it really beautiful for a woman.
I proudly inform you that the juice in the bottles was created by my friend, The Hungarian Nose, the talented Zsolt Zólyomi.
Kurkdjian's APOM Homme.
My vote went for Fumerie Turque - too bad that I have so strong allergic reactions that I can't wear it.
Apart from that one, the next one might be Herod from Marly, missing from the list. A bit...
A good start. Choose whichever you want.
You'll find comments/reviews connecting IB to Fahrenheit. According to my previous post, in my view the connection is more apt to Quimbaya, though Fahrenheit is not far-fetched either. I'm curious if...
I can remember a scent which has a kind of similar character - Jean Pascal's Quimbaya. I never could warm up to it, perhaps it was too sharp where IB is mellow, perhaps it was too near to Fahrenheit...
I don't find it to be a good idea - just from my own experience. Just like someone above, I have a sample for about 4 years, once one a quarter-year I spray it on my wrist, just to see if I've...
You never can tell. Some say Puredistance M is the greatest thing since the sliced bread, yet I found it so food-spice-like that I had simply no idea how others don't smell it :) Go after your own...
No question: the single very best scent I've ever come across. I don't think I'm snobbish just because of the MDCI name: I don't understand Chypre Palatin, washed it off - period. Ambre Topkapi - I...
To my greatest surprise and joy, my country's first niche-oriented shop has just begun carrying the MDCI line. And my three samples are already on the way :) I'm extremely curious about IB and CP -...
Yesterday I gave one more chance to Aventus from my official Creed sample. After an hour I had to wash it off. How nice it is we are so different:)
Surely Kurkdjian's Maison and probably Guerlain.
With due respect I find the best way to avoid/disregard the hype is trying Creed scents and judging yourself. And not to swim with the current - either direction :)
As for me, the only Creed I...
Never in my life received I as many favorable comments/inquiries as during the years I worn APOM Homme exclusively.
I don't know Honour woman, but in my books Honour man is in the three most luxurious scents I've come across in 25 years.
From Amouage by miles the most elegant, ethereal, luxury scent which would do in your profession is Honour Man. For selling luxury watches I think these are about the most important features.
My signature scent APOM Homme - no question.
Man, you actually have an Invasion Barbare sample? Now I realize I owe samples to you.... in change of that :)
- - - Updated - - -
They are anything but fresh - especially the Goodsir.
I'm with you in this. The new Frapin Speakeasy surely a nice scent, but after a while it's about nothing but immortelle - it simply turns my stomach.
I've never had this feeling with GFT. Rather, Neroli Portofino I actually find like some furniture polish.
Boy, I hope it WAS a blind buy. Because if you smelled it before buying, I DON'T KNOW YOU EVER MORE!!! :)
- - - Updated - - -
Prada Pour Homme Intense. I know I should educate myself, but...
I think Trumper GFT is great for your purpose. Read the reviews.
If you MEAN robust then I do recommend Herod from Marly:
I find it simply better than AdP Colonia Assoluta. Actually a gorgeous citrus scent, with remarkable depth and longevity.
Good news :)
Today I had the chance to try them at Douglas. The 'original' I tried several years ago, I don't know if there's been a reformulation in the meantime, but this one seems to me much more 'mellow', the...
Yes: the issue being that it gets even better by time :) I bought it 2 years ago, used the 70 mls bottle very sparingly, so there's still about 4-5 mls in the bottle. I keep it in its original box....
Hot weather = cold weather = Kurkdjian's APOM Homme. Since I bought it I've tried about 150 scents. Nothing comes close.
Have you tried it yet? My friend has just begun selling this one, after all the others from Marly. I'm really curious. They write -and I haven't read from them similar- that this is the most...
Kurkdjian's APOM Homme. Or for a bit less bucks Narciso Rodriguez Musc For Him Parfum.
As I know there's no hype, I was just joking... never mind.
I'd rather say the one I love much stronger than (seemingly) others is Aigner Black. A terrific scent.
You seem to disagree with those who hate it, to the extreme...
I had that mini Background years ago and I can remember how unique and gorgeous it was.
Maybe I've found a wrong batch number :)
Today I received my Volutes EdT sample and must conclude that this is not the house for me. And surely this was my last trying. Period.
Anyhow, if you like Philosykos EdT then surely will love the...
After a long last I've received my samples. Initial impressions: BdA a great scent, for sure. I don't see the resemblance to Arso, but I tried Arso about a month ago, maybe I'm wrong. After 15...
I don't think it's similar to Reflection. Yes, a good almond soothing scent with decent longevity. If I should find a comparison, it would be perhaps Penhaligon's Sartorial.
Mona d'Orio Vetyver. The best vetiver I've ever come across, by miles.
I own and love GIT. I have a sample of Aventus and don't know (and don't care) about the batch number. I wouldn't spend a penny on it.
From the shape of the bottle I thought this must be for women, and look:
My limit is 0. So sorry, I can't stand any scent with recognizable civet.
You mean 2/3 of the basenotes community is an opinionless mass-market-lover moron?
At about the end of the communist era in my country, there were some 'dollar-shops' where there were very limited number of western scents. The first one I bought was Alain Delon Iquitos, a really...
I agree. About the only amber I like - that is love.
Bleu over-hyped? Maybe I don't really know the meaning of the expression...
About 80 USD for 100 ml (3.4 Oz) juice? I don't see it to be high.
I wouldn't like to be in the place of say hirch_duckfinder or foetidus - just to name two giga-opinionless-losers with positive reviews... Bad for them, sure.
