Espresso Royale, no doubt.
I smell peach, but this is a tea fragrance for me, just Slumberhouse's version of it. It's intriguing
Trying to figure out if I can detach it to do the syringe method of decanting. Thanks!
Espresso Royale is my favorite scent. Made from an indie shop.
Use them as lights.
EDIT: nextlevelpowerliftin is me on reddit
Add me down for 25ml of Aventus with Friends/Family option. I'll PM you this, too.
Without a doubt Espresso Royale.
If you don't mind, please state which fragrances reflect the seasons best:
Fall - Espresso Royale. Comforting espresso on a cool chilly day.
Winter - Messe de Minuit. Isolated in a Church...
Espresso Royale = coffee beans
Ambre Narguile = cinnamon apple pie
Kerosene Unknown Pleasures = fog machine's fog
Muscs Koublai Khan = diaper feces
Very interested in this if it is at a competitive price. Thanks!
Aventus. Far more versatile, genuinely appealing, and won't make someone not Oriental look strange for wearing it.
A smokey, warm, cinnammon apple pie.
My buddy is looking for one. I recommended:
Messe de Minuit
but am having trouble thinking of others that may fit. What would you say?
EDIT: Now he just said "sensual...
I did not purchase anything either. Nothing he's decided to do lately invites me to support Slumberhouse. Let's see how he changes it up.
Hell, I'm still looking for my holy grail of a combination of Amber Narguile and tobacco in one scent :(
Their store is excellent, you'll have a lovely time. Very mature feeling, with a lot of different perfume brands, too.
Went to NYC and stopped in to smell some of their work. Wow, it's absolutely stunning stuff! I especially enjoyed Magic Circus, it was darkly enchanting.
Messe de Minuit
Too strong of perfumes.
FYI, Josh said Sova is going to retailers with Sadanne very shortly. Doesn't know what's in the pipeline.
Have not, will put it on my list! Interestingly, I was very excited to try "Chene" by them after reading it is comparable to the smell of firewood burning in North Carolina's Fall. Yeah...not even...
Apparently :) I've tried many "gourmands" and I'm still looking for that ONE that is both a gourmand yet Fall.
Sova - FALL, but TOO HEAVY.
Bois Bond - "hay" but too dry
Chergui - Ideal in...
Hey all, I went from owning 40+ fragrances to three. And I've sampled over 100+ additional.
Only ones I genuinely enjoy:
Amber Narguile - Absolutely love it
Messe de Minuit - Gorgeous, "apple...
Fille by Serge does, as well as Chene :)
I sampled Slumberhouse Baque. It's a very boozy, Fall-ish gourmond in the Slumberhouse vein. Not animalistc, not an open field, nor a farmhouse. It's more a barrel of alcohol with honey. Pretty good,...
Talk about an extremely passionate, diverse independent line. Their fall candles are to die for - VERY potent, cute, etc.
Listen, I'd love to write a favorable review of his scents. I've had a total 180 on them. It's odd to me that unless you write favorable things you're perceived to be a bad individual. Isn't...
Hmm, what about the end for you?
Josh's issue is that his fragrances are "art for arts sake" and people buy it purely on the "hipster niche perfume" appeal the shop has. It's the craft-beer of perfumery - many interesting styles,...
Not enjoying it outside of its opening. The "ash tray" vibe comes up too fast.
I like gourmands, too. None of them do it for me.
Any tobacco only fragrances out there as to not blend anything else other than the one note?
I'm looking for something that has:
as a base. The "apple pie" vibe Amber Narguile gets is seductive, amazing, but I want it a TOUCH more masculine.
I've tried Or Du...
Currently, I'm experiencing a sort of "falling away" from them. Only a few are completely intoxicating to me - Ambre Narguile, Back to Black, Messe de Minuit, Espresso Royale, New Haarlem. I suppose...
From my experience, and this is coming from a fan of the Fall, horror movies, haunted attractions, etc - it isn't wearable. While fully representative of the season, it's too pungent and...
I know exactly what you mean! And your description of saying the perfume "stews" is great. I recently sold a bottle on here, hated to see it go.
And that's what is going to hurt Slumberhouse.They're unique, but their schtick will get old (if it hasn't already). Notice less discussion, realization Zahd is cherry medicine, lack of updates on...
For Slumberhouse, you literally have to look at it as avant-garde art. They're NOT wearable.
It's phenomenal. let me know what you think.
Which perfume season is your favorite?
I need a signature Fall fragrance. Chergui lost its charm because it's too "powdery" for me. Looking for Fall in bottle, but not a gourmond (Ambre Narguile takes care of that).
Hermes Ambre Narguile
Agreed. Glad to see Basenotes are realizing Zahd isn't the "GLORY FRAGRANCE" the hype made it seem. It's cherry medicine in a perfume.
I'll chime in my opinion, but I hate XXV, too. It's EXTREMELY oriental, and doesn't fit my "image".
I shy away from dominant citrus/vetiver Spring fragrances, and haven't explored much of floral. After sampling Xerjoff Nio, I'm flabbergasted that I cannot find a genuinely unique, appealing...
Trust me, you'll regret it. Smells like feces.
I love it. Full bottle worthy.
I have only experience with masculine fragrances. The two requests are:
1) An "appealing" vanilla scent that is wearable all seasons
2) A fragrance that wears closer to the skin, is unique, all...
Winter: Tobacco Vanille
I need a Spring fragrance! Recommendation?
ClaireV, GREAT review.
And not because I am selling one, but I do like New Haarlem a lot.
Two seconds for me.
Engin by MadHat Scents
Thank you all so much :)
A more prominent cinnamon.
Remik, thank you so much! Very kind of you! Please post your opinions on what you receive!
L'eau de Issey
that's abou tit.
I'd imagine it'll be something with tobacco and leather, but I hope it can be genuinely appealing at the same time.
Americana Rust - Imagine yourself riding besides a tobacco field in the middle of rural North Carolina. It's a beautiful day in the Fall, nearing dusk, and you're needing a quick rest. As you pull...
Heeley Menthe Fraiche
There it is.
There is a certain fragrance that people spoke frequently about awhile ago that's not listed here....dang...don't remember though.
Unfortunately, I don't own it :( I heard the red version is where it's at - gothic and beautiful. Any place that you know of selling samples?
Thanks for the contributions thus far! Updated my original post.
Batucuda anyday of the week.
Still waiting on that updated collection :)
1 - Hayride -- Bois Blond or Americana Rust
2 - Medieval -- Messe de Minuit
3 - Nightmare -- Black Tourmaline
4 - Gourmand -- Sorriso
5 - Desert - LDDM
6 - Swampy -
7 - Halloween - Sova or M3...
* New Haarlem
* Noir de Noir
I absolutely ADORE this fragrance and don't see it mentioned frequently, unfortunately. Such an appealing one, with gothic incense and a mix of light floral/fruit.
How interesting! Any recommendations? From my sampling, I avoid most tobaccos because I really just smell ashtray (eg: Les Nombres d'Or Cuir Mona di Orio).
How would you define a controversial opinion?
Please, please post your review! Excited to read it.
Also, do you have updated pictures of your collection?
My intent is not to stir the pot. In fact, I don't know how anyone can get upset at another person's 100% opinion. Here, I hoped to just see and appreciate the differences in our views of fragrance.
3) Noir de Noir
4) New Haarlem
Are you from New York? Their main store is huge! Yeah, they charge quite a bit for how many billions they make (and how awful most of them are). New Haarlem is awesome, tho.
Latter, to me, is more "pulpy" and the former is more straight juice. The latter lasts longer.
Could you take a minute and indulge me as to why one would use a strip rather than skin?
I don't like it whatsoever.
Hence why they're controversial opinions :) It's funny, your top 5 are the complete opposite of my preferences, too. Controversial!
And I don't get Amouage is horrible. Nothing sticks out in their...
CB I Hate Perfume November
This is going to be interesting, but I'm curious about some controversial opinions (meaning, sentiments you have that most would disagree with) regarding the fragrance industry.
