Fusion Sacree Lui.
I think you're taking that too literally. She probably just meant you smell good.
Like all 3, and own Journey and Opus II. I'm working on a couple decants of Interlude, but haven't decided if I will go for a bottle when they're done.
So it's a toss up for me between Journey...
Erolfa. Not a fan of PW. Find it feminine.
$722 for DHI isn't bad either! :huh:
Andrea Maack Coal.
Of the 3 Pluriel is the most appropriate for a warm climate, but agree that APOM is an even better choice.
None for me.
Start with samples.
You seriously think Musc Ravageur is likely to be the most complimented/liked by others? :shocked:
Much more similar to Opium PH to me.
I like a few, but Elixir is their best. Fans of Comme des Garçons should check it out.
Ferragamo Black (under $30 online).
Mont Blanc Legend.
Why are the notes completely different from the original?
You can get a 4oz tester from lilydirect for $123.
Amouage Fate. And I quite like it on myself as well.
What's the reasoning behind that?
Plenty of good ones there, but I'll narrow it down to 5.
I have not tried Accord Oud, but Oud Immortelle is one the worst smelling fragrances I've ever smelled. I'm yet to find anything from this house that I enjoy.
You'll have to decide that for yourself. For me, its not too feminine.
Try Lolita Lempika au Masculine.
There you go again, obsessing about what other people think. Someone should buy Egoiste (or any other fragrance for that matter) because THEY like it, not because some stranger on the internet does....
Perhaps also people who can't read.
Legit, but sample first.
Buy this, op...
Jacomo Aura (under $10)
Smalto For Men (under $15)
Seems to be working now. Well, that was weird.
When I search for anything, I get no results.
So if you pay $20 the fragrance is good, but if you pay $70 it's bad? I don't get it.
I like quite a few...
CK One/Be (although CK One now smells nothing like it once...
One sales associate in Saudi Arabia doesn't speak for the entire global population. Actually, I'm not even sure that covers Saudia Arabia as I'm sure there are plenty of Saudis who wear Terre...
Lately, Anat Fritz Tzora.
So how does that explain your assertion that "Nobody in the general public even know or heard about Aventus"?
How did you arrive at that conclusion, facts or just a feeling you have?
TdH and Aventus are sold in hundreds of department stores all over the world. The notion that only "frag heads" are buying...
99.9% of fragrances will smell good, but obviously we are more critical when it comes to wearing and spending our own $$$.
Seeing as you're wearing Virgin Island Water today you might want to try my sotd L'Artisan Batucada. Same general idea but more citrus less coconut.
Not surprising. The one thing people can't knock Bond for is performance. You even started a thread this morning about the performance of ILNYFH.
Thanks Rex! :smiley:
Can't take a joke? I'm amazed you have a problem with this, but don't seem to mind the posts ITT that lump everyone in eastern Asia into a group of "fragrance haters" that would rather smell of...
OP: try Sushi Imperial.
Egoiste. I've owned all 3, Egoiste is the only one I have now.
Not to my nose. It's very clean and fresh.
You may want to try Opus II by Amouage.
From 2012, but...
"i do not reformulate. There is one exception: Le Maroc pour elle ,where I had to change some things due to legislation. Especially the air du désert marocain is 100% identical...
You're going to love them all. No doubt about that!
Very strong performance on me.
Very similar, and very classy too!
Le Baiser du Dragon
You've failed at both. :tongue:
Yes. A blatant copy of BdC.
What a revelation. Thanks for sharing.
Something from Creed (gateway niche).
Aventus seems to be popular. :huh:
I think you have the best chance of liking Reflection. While I see why some people compare it to Le Male, Reflection is much more natural smelling. I hate Le Male and like Reflection. The thing that...
What was your issue with them?
Nor do I.
Looks good, and a nice fragrance. Enjoy!
Yes! I love L'Instant and DH/DHI, but Ore is the best chocolate fragrance I've smelled.
This question has been asked a thousand times. Did you even attempt a search?
Could you possibly be lowballing, or overestimating what your swappables are worth? In my case, lowballers get ignored.
Wearing now, smells great. A fruity sweet version of Royal Oud. Seems pretty unisex, and I don't feel uncomfortable wearing it.
I've thought of this in the past as I love the smell of the Body Shop's TT oil products. Nothing really comes to mind, but maybe try Slumberhouse Grev.
Like it, but would wait until it's around $40 online.
No, they're Axe deodorant sprays. Hednic was just messing with you.
Excellent point, StylinLA. I sometimes feel the same way.
Anat Fritz Tzora.
I particularly enjoy wearing Amouage Fate Woman.
I was just talking about this with a friend last night and we both agreed that it has definitely been reformulated. The only question is, when?
At 7 or 8 was gifted a 1oz of Or Black by my parents as a stocking stuffer, but didn't become seriously interested in fragrances until I discovered Basenotes in my early 20s.
One thing you will learn from Basenotes is that every time the packaging changes, the scent does too.
Are you planning on having the second hand suit dry cleaned? If yes, you're out 6 bucks. :tongue:
Can't see what you've got there, but you should try the ones that interest you the
I'll choose 3 by Prada
Similar to the point that owning both would feel redundant.
Agree with hednic. They are fine.
Smelled this a while back. Didn't notice too much of a pot smell, but I guess a little. Smoke for the Soul by Kilian, now that stuff smells like pot. Actually lol'd the first time I smelled that one.
Don't waste your time. It's sweet, feminine, and not animalic at all. The last 2 Opus releases have been duds.
Have tried them all. VI and II are the ones I chose to purchase.
Something doesn't seem right here. AFAIK fragrancenet have a no questions asked return policy. People have returned items to fragnet for all sorts of reasons - bad batch, poor longevity, or just...
A 36 way tie.
Mayfair by a wide margin.
1oz of GIT, and congrats!
Are any of them still available for purchase?
Longevity: Interlude (its not up for debate)
Resurrecting an old thread. Picked up a bottle of Vapor with a recent Fragrancex order. Smells decent, and seems to last a few hours. I believe the smell is a copy of Hugo by Hugo Boss from the early...
Is it though? As you said, PH II retains no DNA from PH I and I think that's necessary for it to be considered a flanker. Otherwise we could say that PH I is a flanker of the original Gucci PH...
But you don't get to see what the box looks like and how the sprayer works. :huh:
Ha! Very true.
