Is anyone interested in splitting Musc Ravageur? Perfect fall scent.
added a few more
Removed swapped items!
I sold my VIW on eBay a while back. I sold it to a reseller for $80. I noticed he resold it for $75. :grin:
Same here. The only fragrance I have ever tried that induces an instant headache.
Thanks for sharing your impressions. Like you, my girlfriend is not a huge fan of aventus. But I've gotten endless compliments from Milliseme imperial (I don't even like that much.) tends to be the...
I honestly only do one spray to the chest. I use fragrance just for me, and with just one spray I can smell my fragrance all day.
I fall into stereotypical marketing. Although pure white cologne does seem like a white t-shirt cologne to me.
Milliseme Imperial (I'm not a fan, she just loves it.)
Black XS and Pure Havane are two excellent suggestions. I hate the taste of Red Bull myself, but a friend left a can in my car the other day and it really had a nice aroma. Thanks for those...
Any other suggestions? I've tried Apple Brandy and boss bottled, but can't seem to find anything similar. Any 2015 suggestions would be great!
My current top five:
- Creed Jardin D'amalfi
- Creed Pure White Cologne
- Frederic Malle Musc Ravauger
- Frapin L'humaniste
- Creed Royal Water
Summers coming up though, may have to make a...
Thank you for all the splits you've hosted over the past couple years. Half of my collection has a bottle with your label on it.
Much appreciated! Best of luck to your future endeavors.
I just finished my 50mL bottle of musc ravageur. It's the only scent that I consistently get compliments at work with. On top of that I only used one spray as it's quite strong.
Oud wood gave me...
I ordered a package on March 25th and the tracking currently shows up as Germany. Although, I am optimistic it will arrive by next week.
Just came home to four perfectly packaged, sublime smelling fragrances, compliments of Remik. Remik has the most attention to detail and with each one of his splits I continue to be amazed at the...
I would not buy Creed from ebay, let alone a 4oz bottle. I use eBay for carded samples and thats pretty much it. I would suggest if you can not afford to pay the extra it takes to purchase from other...
Can you put me down for 50mL of Jardin, 50mL of spice and wood and 10mL of Roja.
Just wanted to thank you for the split. Shipping was extremely quick and the PWC smells great!
Looks 100% real to me.
1. Windsor - Creed (Reminds her of moth balls)
2. Fars - Xerjoff (Just way too strong)
3. Aventus - Creed (Was told it smells like I've been BBQing)
Interesting how a lot of you have La nuit on your list.
1) Silver Mountain Water (By a landslide)
2) Green Irish Tweed
3) Dior Homme Eau
I agree! Royal Water is one of my favorite scents.
This is quite an interesting hypothesis idea of perfume induced headaches. I would be really interested to read any peer-reviewed research articles done on this subject. You're right though. Perhaps...
Royal Service has been re-released :rolleyesold: Anyone feeling prodigal?
I too would participate in Sublime Vanille
Perhaps they knew you wouldn't be using it as a gift as you are a repeat customer. (One can only hope) :tongue:
Even still, just goes to show how poor their batch control they have. If I spent...
:lolk: On my exams each time I see SMW I need to remind myself its Small Molecular Weight :vrolijk_26:
Thanks for the input. I almost blind bought Fleurs de Gardenia, but I'll be sure to buy a sample before fully committing. :vrolijk_26:
You know I had the same impression when I first sprayed Gucci PH II. I gave it another chance and it has really grown to be one of my favorite scents. Before selling them all quickly, give them...
Great insight! Thank you for sharing. Most of which I agree with! I also do enjoy Aberdeen Lavander. I feel like it is extremely similar to musc ravager, minus the cloves. But your right the opening...
Xerjoff - Fars
Nobody else seems to like it, that I've asked. I love it on the other hand.
I too would be interested in Tabarome Milleseme, as well as Himalaya.
I believe there are, but they aren't cheap as they come with 13mL. In my opinion it would be better to try to find a sample from a different retailer.
I agree with many of the above posts. The only three I have found worthy of a decant/full bottle are
Great choice, also my recommendation if money is not your biggest factor.
Thanks for sharing Remik. A very well done ad that appeals to the masses rather then high school teens (most axe commercials.) Although I doubt a dictator would prefer Axe Peace over Lyric Man :lolk:
In terms of longevity, I have not noticed any difference between batches. They all smell pretty similar to me. But, in terms of opening I prefer other batches. 2011 batch still smells wonderful as...
Tensor9 and Dougczar are two people I always agree with when reading opinionated scent threads. I don't think you can go wrong with this one. Behind Spice and Wood, this is my favorite Creed. It has...
My personal favorite dry down is Bois Du Portugal by Creed. I'm 23 and this scent may be for an older gentleman, but the dry down is amazing. It starts off smelling a little aged, but 5 hours in you...
I definitely agree. Dior Homme Eau and Milliseme Imperial are the two scents I get the most compliments with. I think it gets a little down played because of how hard it is shoved down our throats...
Not a huge fan of the house. If I had to choose one, New Harleem.
My personal favorite is Gucci Pour Hommè II
I dropped my bon-bon sample of NY Oud and my entire room smelled like plum for a good week or two. :2vrolijk_08:
When I was first really into colognes, I purchased full bottles of anything that had any type of hype. I maybe bought about 20 bottles and have sold 17 of them since them, and repurchased decants of...
I love this scent as well, so much I actually bought the full bottle. (Already on discount websites). I can't seem to smell it after a couple hours, but I constantly get compliments past 10 hours....
I have a decant from 2008. The new batch smells exactly the same to me.
I had the same feeling. I'm not a huge fan of designer fragrances, perhaps its all the head, but the entire Dior Homme line I love. Dior homme, dior homme eau, dior homme intense and so on. All...
Looking for any size decant or bottle.
My Nio has a X too, but my my Uden doesn't as well. I wouldn't be worried. There really havn't been too many fakes of Xerjoff that I know of.
A gift of Nio? What great taste!!!
Silver Mountain Water
Green Irish Tweed
Am I the only one that gets 10+ hours with SMW :beer:
Out of all brands I own, ~ 20 brands, her two favorites are GIT and MI by Creed.
VG is my favorite as well, followed by aberdeen lavender. I'm not sure why lavender isn't getting more love on here. It smells very similar to musc ravageur, minus the clove and has great longevity...
I would go with Vetiver Geranium. It smells far less synthetic then Scent of Peace for men, and it changes quite a lot on your skin while Scent of Peace for men is very linear. Although, we all have...
Best of luck on your exam!
Normally I think what ever scent relaxes you would be best to choose. Common knowledge notes that lavender and rose are most relaxing, so perhaps choose scents based...
Thanks for the update! I'll be sure to jump on this when it releases here in the USA. Pure wood just didn't do it for me....
Same here! I smelled every fragrance at Macy's, finally chose Cool Water. It hurts I knew nothing about the fragrance game and paid MSRP for it....
Xerjoff - Fars
Creed Vetiver Geranium
Creed Cedre Blanc
Gucci Pour Homme II
According to diptyque L'Eau Trois uses notes that were harvested from Greece. I'm not sure how similar it smells to Greece, but you could always give it a shot
OP, I had the exact same reaction to GPH2. I disliked the scent immensely when I first purchased it, returned it, then bought a decant. Ever since I bought the decant I couldn't stop wearing it for...
I currently have for swap;
~9mL Vintage 1948 Vetiver Decant - CREED
~8mL Original Santal Decant CREED
~20mL Neroli Portofino Decant - Tom Ford
~28mL Neroli Sauvage Decant - CREED...
I prefer the Bond No. 9 scents that are more geared towards women. Their men scents do not interest me as much. You can normally find a good deal on a full bottle on amazon and fragrance net. I don't...
Encre Noire Lalique
I went to Neiman's to try out all these scents. By far Cedre Blanc was my favorite. To me is was a lighter, more fruity version of Spice and Wood. Aberdeen Lavander smelled very similar to Guerlains...
I've fallen victim to this. My first ever CREED purchase was from a random seller on Amazon. They promised me a 25$ gift card if I rated the fragrance right away after it was purchased. It smelled...
I'd have to say they smell extremely similar for the first two hours. After that, OV turns into a wonderful drydown while Mugler Cologne stays linear. Both smell wonderful though.
Fresco Ilum Dean
And yes they each have similarities to creed....
You're not alone. My favorite scent was Windsor, but the GF couldn't stand it so I sold it.
I'd suggest just spraying less of the heavy stuff on so it stays closer to skin.
Original Santal. I thought by far this was the worst creed. After obtaining a small decant, I've noticed myself leaning for it time after time.
