I purchased a large bottle of Les Copains Homme as pictured above about 6 months ago & find it a quality frag , very strong & light applications required .
Around the same time I scored a large...

& Sevigne #3 ? :evil:
mmmmm .... just 5 years only ? :sad:
probably reformulated juice your also talking about ?
How about Missoni Sport .
Anybody tried this one ?
a top class frag !
under the radar also
blind buy worthy 5/5
:evil: .... bigs , im still hunting for a sample of Everlast ..
a flanker to Tabu ...
... Witness by Bogart
thanks Montana & Milan , glad you guys agree :dankk2:
I recently purchased a 2014 or 2015 release & it is nowhere near as good as the bottle i purchased approx 10 years ago (not vintage either )
Luckily I have purchased a small army of vintage 7ml...
let us once again remember this gem ...
Seems like us who have it have forgotten about this one in recent years ..

In original formulation yes ! a hard split between this & Sport .

I hope you get some response here ....
have you tried Etiene Aigner II yet ?
Bogner Man II
I also own Battistone Marte ... It has an embossed ancient Roman Legionare on the bottle .
I was moved to look it up...
KR ... you can easily get minis fairly quickly online via Ebay
& even at $2 or even $3 per ml factoring in postage it is a bargain !
get some if u find it freschi .....
I first tried it in 2010 thanks to a generous basenoter i did a swap with .....
It was a 5ml bottle that he sent as an extra .... I liked it so much that
This frag is another gem !!! .............
Flown under the radar for far too long & it deserves much more praise & discussion .
I feel if it was widely available & with more reviews to be read ,...
read again derangedgoose

Hugo Boss Number One
I have them both in original formulations now .....
:shocked: what !
TV is very heavy in the sweet vanilla .....
RL Cigar is more bitter & pungent .
Polar opposites .
Despite the price difference & arguably the quality in the ingredients , I like them both .
Ducatti for Men
Versace L'Homme Vintage
Hugo Boss #1 Vintage
Gianfranco Ferre for Men Vintage
sure did ! ... vintage juice is total animal
nice frag , but lacking big bang power and sillage , like Armani Eau Pour Homme
A soft discreet classic !
I treasure my little decant of vintage juice
i have the original .... nice frag !
I have never heard of this 2000 release
I own Visit & Sartoriale & i will also mention , Celine Fever .
I like them al , with Visit being my fave followed by Fever , I never tried Rush .
one is pour homme , the other femme
& they both exist in 2 strengths
Im trying to find a seller who ships Internationally !
Anyone bought some i the past few days , via Airmail ?
* bump *
any one else notice an difference between the cube bottle & formulations from the past ?
I purchased Police Dark , a few years ago .
I wear it a few times a year in winter .
Its rich & full & yes , quite a dark oriental .
I like it .....
I have not tried Aventus as yet ...... but im enjoying this thread ! .
Has anyone purchased some in the past week online , with stock who ship Internationally ?
glad you are enjoying Black Wood & agree with its quality to the nose farno .
I will be purchasing Black Oud also in the coming few weeks ....
I will have a total of four from this house soon ......
very strong & pungent
I received my Black Wood .......
fantastic frag , mega longevity & great sillage .
A lovely ambery woody oriental , almost niche quality !
Roadster by Cartier
Messe de Minuit vintge
Versace L'Homme vintage
Giorgio Beverly Hills vintage
Dunhill Blend 30
Francesco Smalto PH
great combo !
Encre Noir lends itself nicely to blending ..........
try it with some Obsession or Opium :happy:
I have Ebene 50ml , $100 US shipped
& Les Copains Pour Homme 100ml . blue box & crest $80 US shipped on the way .
Prices are sky rocketing !
Im glad i picked up many vintage gems way back in 2006 & 2007 .
I noticed Basala & Good Life recently over the $300 mark .
What have you vintage lovers &...
:shocked: ... are you just joking ?
I have the original & many other mentioned ... it is still unique in my books .
I di like to try the Classic Match someday .
gentleman ..... I do not own a bottle of Patou PH & i certainly will not be buying the reformulation .
I do feel privileged to own vintage GFerre , Bijan , Equipage , Blend 30 , Monsieur Carven &...
agree with Florestano ....
David , does honey smell like vinegar ? :)
Casanova smells nothing like Cacharel, old or new version , its much better & smoother .
Im still looking for the EDP...
not even close to Envy ................
like comparing , honey to vinegar !
copies , clones or wannabee's ..........
Armaf's frags , are way way better than many of the big name designer frags being sold & big noted .
Summing up >> good quality ingredients & blending ,...
good point ................
but tweaked or untweeked
Kouros did not need any flankers .... (most of them are thin pale & lifeless & some others totally nothing to do with the classic)
get him to try Aigner One , vintage if possible...
Its a richer Stetson !!
thats the way guys ......
how about to Ozz ?
I have Shades Wood by Afnan ...
I bought it because one review over at FR said it resembled Interlude Man .....
Well it doesn't .......
As a stand alone scent its ok , bitter & strong & very...
I played it safe & I got 25ml in a 50ml spray & last nite I won a 50ml recharge ...
Can recharge bottles be decanted or opened easily ?
I recently purchased Black Wood & i hope it will arrive within the week ..
If its good , I will also get Black Oud .
I will come back & share my thoughts .
pal , its great your enquiring about an old frag
but the days of asking and getting many responses on classics is dwindling .
only a few months ago we had another HDG thread .....
I said this...
IIRC ... check out Slumberhouse
It is Santos we are talking about :)
you are referring to Decleration .....
Does the same apply to Santos ?
So I figured also that it cannot be a red box in b/w ?
Santos .. I do think the grey box is a new release because i only noticed it a few week ago ....& that is after seeing the red box for over a decade .
Im totally aware of that Bigs !
Howdy Demon .....
No resemblance to vintage Calvin .....
& it seems there is the all grey box also , which must be the latest formula ?
Hello Timothy ... get some Kouros if you like it & also M7
and most other frags we discuss here
Metropolis by Estee Lauder
Ebene by Balmain
& Casanova for Men EDP
............................................... can anyone help !!
Hello gents ....
Im hoping the folks at Cartier have done what Van Cleef & Arpels managed to do ...
& returned one of the classics...
I have read over at fragrantica that the most recent release of Santos is a return to its former glory ?
The reformulation that has been sold this past decade or so in the red box has been replaced...
I'll do it for the man !
Moschino Pour Homme
the first & by far the best ..................
A masterpiece in my book , perhaps bcoz it has gone unoticed & not been praised in reviews by the big wigs ......
Has more going on than 4 modern...
SS .... Like Milan said It doesn't resemble Havana & I agree , much lighter in all aspects especially the dark tobacco & heavy clove .
CH is much more discreet but a really good blend & its very...
Its very strong & most certainly in the powerhouse league near the top end in my book .
A few days after responding to yr thread , I tried some on one arm prior to sleep & it was still there 16 hrs...
Demon .... I own Homme De Gres . I can say that it is not similiar to Polo green . I also totally disagree with Bigsly's comments . This gem is not fruity & floral & strong in Sandalwood .. no-no...
Vizzari for Men
Byblos n Black
if you want a cheapie try .
I have both EDP vintage & the current EDT .
Im almost 100% certain that they are made in Italy .
If nobody confirms , I will get my bottles out of lock up & confirm.
M Generation by Mauboussin
remember to try >> Grey Flannel , Bijan & Versace L'Homme
great score ...
I'm glad you got some Cavs .
Its certainly a gem & they don't make them like this anymore .
I remember almost 10 yrs ago when i first joined BN i made some inquiries & then i got a bottle about the...
TL Pour Lui
about the same as the current TDH .
Byblos in Black & Yardley's Citrus & Wood outlasts these both .
my bottle arrived today .................
Mila Schon Uomo is a Terre De Hermes , clone .
So in my cabinet it sits alongside
> Yardley Citrus & Wood
> Byblos Black
> UDV Action
I can say that...
good score !! What you have is vintage juice ... enjoy it
nice bottle , i have one of her older mens releases
I have heard this has been reformulated ...........& badly also .
Perhaps you should do some research to see which one is vintage ?
Logic dictates ...to get the "splash"
Dr Seid , thanks for mentioning Australia .
I just picked up a large bottle ....
last week i got a large bottle of Arrogance PH
Nazareno Gabrielli was made in the early 90's ? ... so i would bet its much better than reformulated D&G
I am lucky i have vintage Pino , some Capucci in a decant & a 3 great Lancetti frags in my...
sure , nothing wrong with them three !!
but I am curious .... > Is reformulated D&G better than Nazareno Gabrielli
