Andy Warhol Pop, and it is inexpensive too.
It is available at Amazon:
Humidity should not be an issue with spray bottles since there is not way water could get into the bottle, and a little water will not harm the fragrance anyway. But light and temperature will ruin...
Maybe Ablaze by Boadicea the Victorious is what you are looking for:
I second that
Montana Black is a different perfume, it may share some notes with Montana PdH, but they differ is deveral aspects.
Read my review of Montana Black
I agree with Renato. The current version of Quorum maybe doesn't have the balls of the original, but the rougher edges were softened down making Quorum a rounder, more wearable perfume and I love...
Agua Lavanda by Puig
Heno de Pravia
Molinard Cologne Lavande
Pinaud Lime Sec
Alvarez Gomez Agua Colonia Concentrada
or Extra Vieille.
The best part is that they are so cheap you can...
I do agree with this, but you may wanna try "Sleeping with Ghost" that is marketed for women and men
If it is your "Holy Grail", then it means you are still in the search, how can you call it a holy grail if you already have it. at least that is a concept of a Holy Grail.
If you mean the perfume...
They smell absolutely different to me
No clove in my opinion.
Back to the original question:
Pino Silvestre is the obvious answer, but I'll like to add Norne, Yatagan and Arboretum.
I disagree with your perception of similarities within Silver and Silver Water Mountain, they only are similar in one thing, both have the word Silver in their name, and that's about it.
Guerlain Vetiver was my absolute favorite before the numerous reformulations it has undergone. Today's GV is still pretty good but it has been "dethroned" by several great vetivers like Grey Vetiver...
Are you kidding me????
VdP is one of the most honest Vetivers in the market, You can really smell the vetiver without the strong spices, tobacco or leather that are characteristic of most "so...
Of course SSSB in not an alternative to VIW, it is better.
Like Neroli Portofino lasted much longer.
Well, perhaps you are right, it lasts for about two extra minutes longer.
Instead of Neroli Portofino get yourself a bottle of 4711 Original Cologne or Myrurgia 1916, you'll save a lot of money.
And instead of Virgin Island Water get either Aqua Motu by Comptoit SP ot...
I think there is a bit of a confusion here:
A Honda made in the USA is still a Japanese car, isn't it?, and a Volkswagen made in Brazil is still a German car, is it not?
If I am listing cars...
I've tried many Russian perfumes and they are just mediocre at best.
Jamaican perfumes?, never seen even one in my whole life.
C,mon, be serious
I love French fragrances, not only Creeds, but I have several Molinards, several Fragonards, and many many more. But the fact that I love french perfumes doesn't render me blind to the superiority of...
i've tried them all, have you tried any from Abdul Samad Al Qurashi, Asgharali or Syed Junaid Alam?
One, just one of them.
Or you are not familiar with Amouage?
Paco Rabanne perfumes are made in both Spain and France, your comment has no bearings in the fact that some great perfumes are made in Spain.
Are you telling us that Amouage has not mastered the art of alcohol based perfumes????????????
And German and Swiss perfumes are what? Chopped liver?
Anybody that voted for any other region but Middle East did so because he/she doesn't really know the fragrances of the Middle East.
Here in the USA or Europe we get only a small sample of the...
Nikos Sculpture is good in any season, and IMO much better than Versace Dreamer.
For a Vetiver I would recommend Puig's, it is a genuine vetiver scent without other notes interfering with the...
I second that and add what to me is the epitome of a gothic scent: Ungaro III
In the "Aqua di Colonia" type scents, to me the best is "Myrurgia 1916" and second Roger&Gallet "Extra Vieille", to me they are not only better than AdP's, but a lot cheaper too.
If I had to chose only 1 cologne to wear for the next 5 years....... I'll kill myself
I have to agree that Salvador Dali Pour Homme is one of the darkest scents around, but similar and even darker is Sashka Black by M. Micallef. Unfortunately it has been discontinued, but it can be...
Nobody mentions the most unusual perfume manufacturers in the world, namely:
and I would add any JP Gaultier, Fahrenheit and ADG
Aqua Motu for Pollensa, Mallorca and Cala Sant Jaume, Menorca. For Ibiza Acqua di Sale.
For Venice Beach and Miami Beach nothing better than Set Sails St. Barts and Sel Marin for Pismo...
Buy from Amazon, they have a great selection, prices are very competitive and they deliver in two days anywhere in the country for free if you sign as a "prime" user.
I got my full ounce of Tobacco Flower body oil from Save On Scents and was utterly disappointed.
It has a faint similarity with the Body Works product, but is not what I was looking for, it smells...
Recommending cK Obsession as a replacement of Zino?
Obsession and Zino have as much as common as cats and dogs, the reason of the recommendation is that cK perfumes are also manufactured by Coty,...
That's ridiculous, no perfume in the world is worth 1000 bucks.
Dolce and Gabanna pour homme reminds me a lot of TBS Tobacco Flower, but is not identical.
I used Tobacco Flower for many, many years and I was devastated when they discontinued it. I bought eight...
Witness by J. Bogart Witness
Sashka Black by M. Micallef
Ungaro I and II
On me, it is straight lemon from the get go to the amazing drydown you mention. You are right, the opening and the drydown are better than the heart, nevertheless, it is still a great fragrance....
Messe de Minuit by Etro is like a midnight mass in a catholic church
If you want real lemony lemon, there is nothing like C O Bigelow Lemon Eau de Parfum
It is available in Amazon:
I tried them all in Las Vegas a couple of weeks ago and they are outstanding, specially Indonesian Oud.
I wrote about them in the "Powerhouse Fragarnce Users" group.in the "Guess what Fragrance"...
Duver: Is there an echo??????
Another good one: Molinard Lavande Cologne
Both cheap and come in huge bottles.
Yardley English Lavender and Atkinsons Lavander are also good but a tad more expensive.
Hawaiian White Ginger by Perfumes of Hawaii:
I got a bridge for sale very cheap:
it is called the Brooklyn Bridge and I am sure you'll get your money back very soon by...
The whole Guerlain Homme line consists of rum scents.
Try Set Sails South Seas too.
Eau d'orange verte by Hermes
Micallef Sashka Black
Vermeil by Vermeil
One Man Show
Montana Perfume d'homme
what do you mean?????
Bijan is a designer fragrance!!!!
Giorgio of BH for man leaves all the rest to shame.
Lapidus pH, One Man Show, Sung Homme come next.
NONE of them on your list!!!!!
I went overboard !!!!!
http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51Beo16pUbL._SL500_SS500_.jpg 3.4 oz
http://www.perfumesnow.com/perfume_images/68271M.jpg 6.0 oz
Agreed, also try Agua Lavanda by Puig.
Both dirt cheap to boot.
Orange by Novaya Zaria is just pure Orange.
I got the set of 4 citrics from this house (Orange, Grapefruit. Bergamot and Lemon) and they smell just the real thing, and they are inexpensive.
In your case you should take advantage of "ebay buyer protection". They will refund your money and shipping costs it you are unhappy with your purchase. Plus, they will punish the seller that...
I agree, Norne is one of the darkest scents ever.
Jacomo de Jacomo is also extremely dark.
M. Micallef's Sashka Black is even darker.
If for dark you mean gothic, then Ungaro III with its dark,...
I agree with you 100%, and that's precisely why I don't like Hei, it is like Aqua Velva.
- - - Updated - - -
I do love it too.
Do they deliver?
But I think I'll pass, too many calories.
There are too many to mention here, but these are my favorites leather/patchuli fragrances.:
Montana perfum d'homme
Oscar de la Renta pour Lui
I bought it for my wife (along with Black Orchid Voile de Fleur) and we just love them both.
I wear them occasionally and we like them so much we bought 4 bottles of each for back ups.
Richard James Savile Row Eau de Toilette.
Gives a sense of authority, class and...
Pino Silvestre hands down.
Most Tom Ford's are unisex, so how come it gets mentioned in this thread?
I guess people don't bother to read the title of the thread!!!!!
This is for best MALE perfumes CAPICHE????
Fragonard has outstanding fragrances and is seldom mentioned here.
Eau de Hongrie
And Molinard. gets no respect either
Maybe Cafe Black Label by Cofinluxe is what you are looking for.
Unfortunately is not in Basenotes database.
But you can find it in Fragrantica.
What about Fragonard?
Zizania, Desert, Concerto, Vetyver, Sieste, Papa cherie, Mesonge and many more, they kick ass and leave Dior, Chanel and YSL in the dust.
Richard James Eau de Toilette, and you can go to Saville Row to get it.
Not only lasts 10-12 hours and has sillage to spare, and it is soooooooo British!!!!!!
There is NOTHING like Norne, believe me, but the closest in my opinion is Arboretum by Le Prince Jardinier for its pine note.
Pino Silvestre is piney too, but not as good as Arboretum.
Chypre, pronounced: [ʃipʁ] or [ʃipχ], is the name of a family (or concept) of perfumes that are characterised by an accord composed of citrus top-notes, a middle centered on cistus labdanum, and a...
Ted Lapidus pour Homme
Silver Mountain Water
Jacomo de Jacomo
Giorgio Beverly Hills
Montana parfum d'homme
I don't want to abuse your generosity (you have been very generous already), but I would love to have that VIW decant you are offering.
You are so right ericrico, furthermore, I find the term insulting and degrading. Those that use the term "old man fragrance" get no respect from me.
Now "old fragrance" is totally different, and...
Maybe it does not qualify as traditional (launched in 2003), but Richard James EdT is the quintessential british perfume.
1. Get a bottle of McCormick vanilla extract and a tube of the mintiest toothpaste you can find, then don't wash for a couple of days.
2. Make a slurry with the toothpaste and vanilla in your hands...
Socalwoman: I tried the sample of Norne today and this is my comment:
It is a wintery cold and dark night, it is snowing outside. The fireplace barely can contain its blazing fire and some of...
1.- Sashka Black - Micallef
2.- Silver Water Mountain - Creed
3.- 1-12 - Halston
4.- Montana Parfum d'Homme
5.- Yatagan - Caron
6.- Krizia Uomo
7.- Fendi Uomo
I agree with cacio, Jannet Firdous is ghastly, although it is very popular in India (I can't figure out why).
I just ordered Kashkha oil and expect to have it in a couple of days, after I get it...
Almost finishing my second 4 oz. bottle I can say that I like OV, and I like it a lot, but I don't love it. It is not at the same level as Himalaya or Silver Mountain Water in the Creed stable.
Le Male and A*men belong to the putrid category.
I should disqualify myself because those are the notes of one of the samples you sent me.
Very nice scent BTW.
Glad you enjoyed my review.
Same here, I just don't like it at all. I wouln't buy it even if it was the last perfume in the world.
Ungaro III to me is THE "must have" classic perfume, but I would mention also its brothers I and II.
The Halston twins (1-12 and Z-14) come in a very close second.
They are excellent and...
Thank you socalwoman for such a fantastic fragrance.
The only way to describe is "leather", just pure unadulterated leather*. Like the smell of a brand new car with leather seats, or the leather...
Bijan nude for men
Varvatos Vintage looks like a great choice indeed, the fir note for the christmas tree and the cinnamon for the eggnog LOL, but I'll replace the cinnamon for cloves so maybe i'll choose Bowling...
Sneaky way to obtain the age of fellow basenoters eh?
I agree, Black Orchid is complex and also somewhat "dirty", heavy and intense, so it fits perfectly a man. If you like it, you may also like Black Orchid Voile de Fleur, which is lighter and more...
Too many to list, but among my favorites:
Lapidus pour Homme
Giorgio of BH for men
Nicole Miller for men
Spark J Claiborne (This one is dirt cheap)
Most Serge Lutens have honey
Actually the juice is even worse
Which GIT batch?
Then put on your profile that you are from the UK.
How in the hell are we suppossed to know if you hide the fact?
