I wouldn't blind buy
Hey there, I have a question for you guys about finding a particular room scent. I first smelt this scent in the Four Seasons in Istanbul while in the lobby and was immediately addicted. A few weeks...
Well TV and NH aren't really similar apart from being sweet, so it's hard to compare. TV and NH are more "bold" or straightforward I guess you would say while TI is gentle.
When I first smelled TI...
If it THAT good then almost anything if I can save up for it (unfortunately I don't have unlimited funds :p). Practically though, I tend to say $100-150 is comfortable, $150-225 is starting to get...
They are all great and will work fine in a classroom. But please spray with caution because no one wants to be smelling you from 20 feet away during an hour lecture.
I completely agree with everything you said. I like them both, but to me they smell completely different. The Versace is a bit synthetic smelling lemon, while B22 is a more natural smelling, crisp...
It's pretty hot and humid there all the time, so like you said, I don't see cool weather scents fitting in. I would just choose ones that really cut through humidity (are light). Like someone already...
It could be that because of you spraying it on your neck you are constantly smelling the scents and getting fatigue. I would recommend spraying them on your wrist/back of the hand/forearm area and...
Maybe PG Coze? It kind of has a pine/resin with coffee vibe.
Ebay is a lot cheaper and of course you run the risk of getting an old bottle or "bad" batch, so that's up to you. You can just ask them what the batch is and look it up to see if anyone else has any...
Creed Green Valley is my #1, smells like this:
It's pretty expensive if you can find it....
Not much I can add except that I bought New Haarlem from them and it is just fine.
At full retail, honestly none, they are way overpriced. I was able to get some at a discount when I shopped around however, so in that case:
I Love NY for All
Then if you are thinking that way you are very self conscious and should work on that maybe? I don't know what we can really help you with if you don't like the drydown of a scent. I myself am not a...
I am almost a complete noob to actually making fragrances (I know a bit), but I am wondering if anyone has experience in making fragrances for soap. I am thinking about making some soap and want to...
L'Homme or La Nuit are both very good for dates.
It's simplicity is what makes it so good. It's exactly what comes to mind when I think of "citrus", bright, crisp, fresh, etc.
Ya ask Sephora first for samples. Nordstroms and NM will do it too along with most other stores.
For buying niche samples there are:
The perfumed court - big selection, but pretty expensive...
Most people will buy from fragrancenet to save money on Creeds. I think they have a few unique scents like MI, Jardin d'Amalfi, and Green Valley that are worth saving for. But of course the choice is...
Honestly all of those are great choices. I would go with Chanel Allure Blanche if I had to pick one though. Can't go wrong though.
Most of the sub $100 designers seem to garner the most compliments. A&F Fierce is a good example. If you want to use up your whole budget though, look at Frapin L'Humaniste, it's extremely fresh,...
+1 for Jardin d'Amalfi. Smells exactly like being on the Mediterranean coast.
Another +1 for Versace Pour Homme
Since you said sailing, Heeley Sel Marin would be perfect. It smells like the ocean.
Also, I know you said you didn't want a citrus, but I think it would work...
Go for it it is fine. Try before you buy though, that's the only way to know for sure.
Ooh you have a nice selection!
I would go with either Pear and Olive or Bigarade Concentree.
I disagree. I think they are just fine for getting a full wearing. An atomizer would be better, but I have no problems with then at the moment.
Heeley Sel Marin
Le Labo Bergamote 22
Roja Dove Neroli
Creed Jardin d'Amalfi
Oh another Creed thread :)
Moisturizer helps, not sure about unscented deodorant in particular though.
Kind of a broad question considering there are so many that you could like, but I would say Bigarade Concentree
8.7oz is a ton, so I would either get in on a split or find some people to sell the excess juice to if you don't think you can use it all.
Honestly whatever you like the most. I would go with AF fierce or ysl l'homme.
Most sample sites charge $2-5, you won't find much of a discount anywhere. Look at places like the perfumed court, luckyscent, and surrender to chance. You could always ask the house if you could buy...
I don't get any fish smell, just salt
You will never know until your try :)
That's exactly what I am thinking. You said it is your favorite, but it's a blind buy and you can't do it for $22?
+1 Great for the Summer.
If you are buying from a reputable company like the ones you listed, then there shouldn't be fakes. As far as weakened juice, you should be fine. Never had a bad experience when ordering online. If...
$22. On the scent itself, I think you should be the judge. If you have tried it,...
Another +1 for this. A lot of people would say Virgin Island Water, but I like Coccobello more. It smells way more natural, and I find it kind of relaxing.
Well welcome to the whole of perfumery I guess. Like others have said, nothing wrong with more popular scents like Le Male; it's most important to buy what you like. Niche perfumes just give you a...
Roja Dove Neroli
Another for Slumberhouse Ore extrait
I don't think they smell the same at all. They are my two favorites for the Summer though. If I were to get just one, it would be Bergamote 22, especially considering the price. Nio is an awesome,...
They market with the Amalfi Coast. Usually Bergamot and Amalfi Lemons.
It's hard to pick since it's for your mom and she should ultimately decide. Have you tried Eau de Cologne yet?
I would go with GIT, but you should decide for yourself.
Sample a lot. There's more than one right answer too. If your local mall carries Creed, try them out. They have a lot of crowd pleasers.
EDP has more wood/leaf which is why I got it. Edt has more fig.
I don't get the connection with crack. She tried to buy you something specific and it didn't work out. Just order the right one now and be done.
They say there were no better melon in history...
I haven't seen any. Like aphexacid said, 1oz would be the most economical.
My favorite gourmand is Espresso Royale - Sebastiane. Some other good ones I enjoy:
Jeux de Peau
They aren't really marked down too much so you have to look for coupons like 10% off. I got mine at beautyhabbit for around $100 with some coupons.
There are some fragrances that are so good that they are well worth that to me. The problem is your budget which should ultimately decide. Buying a $600 fragrance is pretty outrageous if you don't...
Try it before you buy it. VIW is like coconut + suntan lotion on a tropical beach resort. Very unique, however I enjoy MI more.
I wear all of them, usually corresponding to season though.
I wore it today again and it smelled absolutely fantastic! It is 97° now and it just works so well. I have tried Profumum Neroli and while I do like the resins, I enjoy Roja Dove's for it's...
+1 very good stuff
After wanting to try some scents from Roja Dove for a long time, I finally got my samples of Bergamot, Aoud, Gardenia, and Neroli. I was really anxious to try Bergamot as I love the note, but I...
Ambre Narguile and Vetiver Tonka
Wow we have almost the exact same choices!
I needed some new sunglasses, so I got these. They look awesome and the company has a cool story.
Google takes 10 seconds. :)
Lots of tech discussion in here :p
Mi, but honestly, you shouldn't be asking us, you need to try them for yourself.
Those are beautiful bottles! Have you tried figue? If so, what are your thoughts?
+1 Definitely try this. Keeps your skin soft too :).
Personally I just don't think the house has released that many amazing pieces. To each his own, but I just think you can get better from different houses for a cheaper price. They do have some unique...
I can't really remember anything extraordinary. It might be a stretch, but the Luckyscent Scentbar is in LA if you consider that an option.
Which do you guys prefer? I hear a lot about Amber Aoud, but not just the plain Aoud. Thoughts?
Le Labo Bergamote 22
Can you try a different bottle? For sure it doesn't smell like nothing. I smell melons and sea air pretty much.
Can you try Jeux de Peau? Not on your list but one of my favorites from the line.
Out if those three I would go with SMW. Honestly though I'm not that big a fan of any of them. I just think you could get a better fragrance for the money.
Exactly! You have to decide for yourself. All of the. Are good choices though. Also try Chanel Allure Edition Blanche.
I don't buy mall juices though, all of my collection is niche (not that I don't like them in general). So say right now I really love Bergamote 22 and L'Humaniste, I'm looking at maybe $400 shipped...
I have probably 60+ samples from them and all of them seem to be fine. No weakness or anything like that.
So this is a huge problem I am having right now. I am in high school so I don't really make that much money every year. I try to save most of it, but of course I have to treat myself and buy some...
Good luck, you sound pretty ambitious and dedicated!
I have tried both a 2011 batch and a 2013 batch and I didn't get any rose in either. Just tangerine and flowers for both. The rose one might be interesting though.
I'm never really around famous people so... :) I should move to Land O Lakes.
Honestly I will ask anyone who smells good what they are wearing.
We are all human.
Fragrancenet had some niche fragrances for a pretty hefty discount. Otherwise you aren't going to really find big discounts. Look for things like 10% off for joining coupons and stuff though.
Except for his website? On their website you have to buy at least 5 samples which equates to something outrageous like $125! I am particularly interested in Bergamot and Neroli. Does anyone know of a...
I voted for Nio with Bergamote 22 and L'Humaniste as close choices. I still need to try Bergamot by Roja Dove which as I have heard is extremely good.
I keep hearing about this one, I really need to try it! :)
I would like to know what others have to say too. I would say Bond no.9 NY for all.
I too don't wear anything when I have a headache, it just makes it 10x worse. Also I don't when traveling, going into nature, and on stressful days.
I would worry about the samples going bad from improper storage considering you would but so many of them.
People usually don't notice a difference, no. In my experience people can't even tell completely different scents apart :p.
I like Nio. Kobe just isn't my stuff.
100ml usually or smaller if necessary. Never bigger.
100% that. It's best to let someone else use them who will enjoy them.
