Very reminiscent of TF's Tuscan Leather.
Dior and Chanel, IMO.
Drop by Nieman Marcus if you can. I came out of there yesterday with 5 MFK samples, each in a 3ml atomizer.
Just got this yesterday. I'll probably be wearing this for the next few days as I find it very intoxicating...
Every time I put it on.
Fleur du Male
YSL l'homme libre
I've had several project like a beast sometimes but not others.
I think Aventus is my overall winner only because it's my most complimented which gives me some indication it's projecting fairly...
I use to be fond of Le Male's minimalism. Outright vanilla, lavender, and mint in the opening. Not that I abhor it now or anything, my tastes are just evolving and favoring other not-so-sweet...
May be your guys' country's customs causing the delay. I received my Adventus three days after he shipped them.
Aventus & Green Irish Tweed.
Surprised to see the org. A*Men mentioned. One of my favorites, but certainly not for its opening.
I remember Sean John's I Am King dissipating quickly through its linear stay. Douse yourself, whatever; it'll be gone completely in less than an hour. Juicy Couture's Dirty English isn't far behind...
What list of fragrances do you have that you would consider swapping for Encre Noire?
The Baron and Midnight in Paris. The latter had my relatives asking why my room smelled like baby powder.
A*Men, Le Male, Opium, Antaeus, Egoiste, M7, and Joop.
Hopefully add a couple more by then.
Acqua di Gio
Green Irish Tweed
Are the ones that instantly come to mind... and oddly enough, Le Male too.
Fleur du Male in the A.M.
Aventus in the P.M.
Received my Aventus yesterday. Thanks again, Dullah!
This. Le Male by JPG is also another winter frag to consider.
I have this imbalance in my collection too but don't mind it at all! I'll even wear these heavy hitters in the spring/summer months because they are too good to isolate to two seasons.
Had to laugh at this!
Never doubted you for a minute, Dullah. I understand everything that goes into this process of splitting and the time it takes. I'm just thankful you're offering such a service.
Before I get any emails telling me to pay because it's not appearing on the above list, I paid as soon as Dullah PMed us telling the split was filled.
Green Irish Tweed, Gucci PH ii, and Havana by Aramis.
Le Male has always been my clubbing scent. A*Men is second.
As for Burberry London, I like it but it doesn't really project. For a stronger and more competitively priced tobacco frag, try cK One...
Read that it will be available around September 16th, according to an online retailer who plans to carry the frag.
Platinum Egoiste will have you ascending the social rungs in no time.
On another note, I doubt Warren Buffett ever wore a fragrance.
It's really difficult for me even to suggest one because I really like all three.
Since you may have all three eventually, for now, Havana.
Very nice purchases indeed. Wish I had that old formulation of Havana.
I wear it to work quite frequently and it garners compliments from the older crowd of women, but is received with aversion or indifference with younger females, from my experience.
Dueto Parfums Golden Boy
In that case, Gucci PH ii + something else!
CK One Shock
Might be worth checking out this thread as it may cover a fragrance not mentioned here:...
Clean boy - Eau Sauvage by Dior
Bad boy - Havana by Aramis
Funny Drakkar Noir was mentioned as that's one of the ones I wore when student teaching. Otherwise I would wear Love & Luck or Sean John I Am King (definitely a time when I wasn't as serious about...
Fougere: Green Irish Tweed
I was just wondering about the Aramis mini coffret last night. Are the small bottles splashes or do they come with an atomizer?
Republican - Gray Flannel
Democrat - Green Irish Tweed
One antiquated, and the other modern with many batch variations.
Joop Homme. I sprayed this on myself at my work in our break room which is fairly big and has adequate ventilation and my one coworker went back in it nearly 15-30 minutes after I had sprayed and...
Not sure how I missed mentioning Fleur du Male by JPG. It's the only fragrance that when I applied a spray to the neck I felt it asphyxiating me and had to wrap another shirt around my throat like a...
I think Kouros is reminiscent of a men's locker room in a way, for many people, which produces a "dirty" vibe for them.
I really dislike Polo blue.
Diet too. Increasing more healthy fats - EFAs and Omega-3s - if you hadn't already.
My sentiments as well.
I don't hate this one. I just find it a little too bland and not appealing enough to warrant a purchase.
Hmm, now I wish I had picked a bottle up a bottle of this at TJMaxx today.
Polo Green, Paco Rabanne PH, Aramis, and Azzaro are all old school fragrances still sold in department stores and such today that I would choose over the countless allures, l'hommes, and -insert...
Yes. Good grief.
Le Male, too, according to my girlfriend.
I just had to weigh in on this thread as I'm really enjoying Golden Boy right now.
I've also been interested in getting a split of TF's Tuscan Leather, but if the two are so similar I may just...
I don't get the Rive Gauche or Drakkar Noir similarities at all. OS Swagger and RG both smell soapy to me, but not alike.
Green Irish Tweed tops the list.
And which one do you like that he wears?
Current top 10 in no particular order:
Green Irish Tweed Creed
Platinum Egoiste Chanel
A*Men Thierry Mugler
Golden Boy Dueto
Le Male Jean Paul Gaultier
Midnight in Paris VC&A
Vanilla, lavender, and mint is what I get.
When my roommate use to wear it years ago he over applied it and I only got a room fumigated with what seemed like powder. Then just a couple of months...
GIT coming in second.
Many girls and guys at the college I attend wear chinos and don't come across as the odd ones out. I suppose in the context of today's younger generation where girls wear leggings with ugg boats and...
These posts echo my sentiment regarding the matter!
Normally though, I find purported Autumn/Winter-only scents have more leniency being born in Spring/Summer if worn at night.
Hearing some of these comments regarding TdH reminds me of my experience wearing it at work once.
I prioritize chinos and dress pants before a pair of jeans. I don't find denim jeans to be any more formal than a pair of say 9-11" khaki shorts, or the like. That said, in the warmer months, I...
Temporarily, they are in a dresser drawer; and the boxes are in a separate one.
I like it, but don't love it. While it's not overly complex, it certainly doesn't strike me as cheap smelling.
I don't mind Cool Water at all. I sampled CW at Kohl's recently and my girlfriend caught a whiff of it said she liked it a lot and thought it smelled like "that stuff you own in the big black...
Yes, I do. Especially on eBay and other auction sites when you just don't know if the juice has been exposed to intolerable heat conditions, siphoned out and replaced with knockoff juice, etc.
I've always sprayed my clothes with no problem up until I bought A*Men and sprayed my white shirt all around the torso before going out once. An hour later I noticed what looked like the...
Like others have said, the frag's purpose dictates how much I spray.
If I want to make a loud presence I will spray behind my neck (1), each side of my neck (2), two on the chest (2), each forearm...
I'm still waiting...
Where do Joop! flankers normally retail?
This introduction reeks of a cheesey backstory used for an action-adventure movie...
Encre Noire layered with 1 Million. The paradox seems fitting.
I agree with the above except I want to add that strong frags can be worn in such work environments if used with careful application. I had a waiter who wore Joop that I got intermittent wafts of...
Some day your username will suddenly be a revered niche fragrance to denote your coming along in the perfumery world. :-P
Without outright hating or loving them,
Love to hate: L'homme Libre - I just bought a full bottle and felt like returning it an hour later - all sales final though, the receipt stated :(
Gucci Pour Homme ii and Tommy Bahama Set Sails St. Barts last through a shower and the night into the next morning - but have little to no projection on me. And some of the biggest projectors...
In regard to Sell Marin, maybe you will be the anomaly out there that doesn't appreciate it like this reviewer:
" Warning: Don't buy it if you don't wanna smell like a fish ..... many people love...
Try Le Male (lavender and vanilla), Terre d'Hermes (citrus/woods), and Platinum Egoiste.
These are big performers that will help cut through the smoke and heat during your daily grind.
Fleur du Male
Bogart pour homme
Honorable mentions/purported ones that need more testing by me:
Green Irish Tweed
I would take all the suggestions from the posters and buy a small 3ml sample of whichever ones you like. This way you can explore outward more and find what you enjoy without sacrificing a lot of...
Another for Green Irish Tweed. If you find you like Cool Water, chances are you will enjoy GIT, too. Of all my blind buys, this is the one I found instantly pleasant and didn't leave me...
Hello everyone. I will be using either one of these in mostly a social/class setting. I've sampled both and thoroughly enjoy them equally, which is why I'm calling on behalf of you guys (and gals)...
I like the mint and lavender in JPG's Le Male.
Kouros and/or Platinum Egoiste for a scent that stands out among the rest.
As of now:
3.) Thierry Mugler
Ok, it's ONE of what, like fifty best-sellers they list?
The rest of the list looks on-par with what we see at local stores and other online stores, i.e., AdG, Cool Water, Joop!, D&G Light Blue,...
Hate is too strong of a word to describe any of the scents in my collection. My dislike for any of my fragrances on a given day is attributed to getting tired of them (worn too consecutively, needs...
Gucci Pour Homme ii
A*Men (or Platinum Egoiste if you feel you have enough 'loud' scents for now)
Curve is indeed the most talked about fragrance at my work where both the men and women, whenever the discussion of fragrance is brought up, reminisce about this juice and it being their all time...
Unfortunately they seem too obscure for the rest of us to try. Have any decants? :-P
My current top five:
Green Irish Tweed
Gucci Pour Gimme ii
I'm using the Travalo refillable atomizer (gold one) and refilled it around five times now and never had a leak of any sort. The filling method is quick and easy. Nice option if you're looking for...
Basically what I was thinking…
Yep, personality, charisma, and looks will dictate the lady pull.
From your list I'd go with Armani Code but would test more at a local mall/boutique that carries a fairly large range of frags...
Hopefully my title is comprehensible enough for you all to get the gist of what I'm asking.
Just a couple that come to mind for me:
Mint - after a light shower from the night before or just a...
Since I've learned sampling is the best way to go rather than blind-buying, my monthly purchases have significantly decreased.
Only fragrance I bought this July is A*Men and one of my favorites -...
Yep, my thoughts too, Tommy.
Possibly my first cologne, or Michael Jordan, but I still apply it when I want to wear something summery and non-offensive to the gym - in other words, an occasion...
I like libre more, especially its drydown. I also agree about this one really appealing to younger individuals.
I agree with hednic's sentiment, Le Male. I find Le Male to be more versatile than Acqua di Gio, personally, as I prefer this one mainly for spring/summer day-time use only, and the former suitable...
Precisely why I keep my soy intake minimal. I'm not sure how much of a concern it should be for a perfume to penetrate deep enough through the skin to have a significant effect. Most products...
I'd be more concerned about this, but given many waterways are contaminated with estrogens that makes its way to our tap water, I think we have bigger concerns. :smiley:
- - - Updated - - -
No offense taken, SmellsLike. Near the completion of my post I realized how nearly impossible it would be to expect someone to know exactly what's for me given the subjectiveness of fragrances, just...
I've been sifting through numerous fragrance reviews and threads looking for a scent that has 1.) A cured tobacco smell, i.e., pipe tobacco or flavored cigar, 2.) The tobacco note is prominent in the...
This echoes my thoughts on the decision. I wore Fierce as my signature scent throughout High School, and nowadays wear Platinum Egoiste.
That's what came to my mind, too.
That I've tried: Ambre Russe and Set Sail St. Barts
I just revisited Bois d'Ombrie since seeing this thread but don't get much of a boozy odor from it. If it's Jim Beam that this frag has a...
