You truly are what makes Basenotes what it is.
I used to to one spray nowadays I spray on a card and smell it throughout the day. It has better longevity this way too.
I remember TT as a super happy Quorum and unlike GPHII which is quite modern. It's been a long while since I last smelled it though.
I was actually going to mention Feu de Bois and I agree with BT. It excites me that you mention cdg Black in the same post with those others.
If you really want a fragrance with much more vetiver either get givenchy vetiver, or for an inexpensive solution with the most vetiver out there, get some good quality vetiver oil.
patchouli 24 and bois d'ascese
look for these before anything else.
afaik there is a a brown hard box, a paper black and a paper white box. they don't reflect what's inside either by size or the name of the fragrance.
If you bought a 30ml tribute, and you get a 12ml in the box I think you should be able to return it just fine. Especially seeing how the supplier is insisting it's 30ml, it's not like you have other...
how about opening the box?
Every fragrance out there has somebody wearing them. They are meant to be worn.
Regarding other people's reactions, I think you'll find being distinctive is better than being like everyone else....
Encre Noire has good reviews, and it smells terrible. OP is baffled by this. Disregarding the possibility that his subjective perception of EN might not be shared by others, he comes to the "obvious"...
Your quest for "truth" is heavily biased.
two very good suggestions.
95% full, not much air exposure, harder to go bad completely.
Cabinet, not much light to trigger a fast oxidation.
I would happily pay 10$ for this nombre noir. The bottle alone is worth much...
are there any really expensive bay rums?
I hear ogallala is good.
piguet is churning out one fragrance after another. puts me off to be honest.
Tribute most definitely.
It is discontinued. IIRC Incensi is discontinued as well. They seem to be paring down and focusing more on the mare nostrum and the new fragrances.
pino silvestre or fahrenheit.
I think it's a great fragrance and severely overlooked.
nope, nobody likes it. it's just a massive prank by caron.
Has anyone really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like?
My advice? Never come back to this forum if you're tight on cash.
and yeah, it's normal.
Sorry for your loss Chris :(
The problem is simply lack of olfactory vocabulary. Which is very common. I have mentioned this before in another post.
I think you both would like sequoia and jaisalmer.
If you want the safe route, skip wonderwood and go for artek standard.
I got the thread anniversary mail and thought I'd post here.
Today I'm resampling the newest odriu, and trying to make up my mind about it. I'll post again in this thread later about it but in the...
You said no amouage but... Opus VI
Ambre Sultan's herbal accents also make it sizzle, and it is very dry.
L'artisan Al Oudh might not have leather listed but it is a spice and leather fragrance imo. Very heavy on spices.
Little to no sweetness and smoothness suggest almost an impossibility to me but.....
One might be better off using those as "panty droppers" as they are cheaper. if that's the main reason you wear fragrances.
however keep in mind they might not be appropriate for you.
My suggestion is don't buy any oud until the last day. Try all the oils. Drip some on cotton balls and put them in small ziplock bags. Label them. Ask their lowest price. Note it down. Also let them...
VC&A Bois D'iris
I hope laltrove 1001 goes out of stock soon :P
don't buy a single note amber "essential oil" as it doesn't exist. vetiver oil however exists, is cheap and wonderful by itself to boot.
my my, the note pyramid is seems incredibly mainstream/classic. Which might be good though...
musk are the most obvious choice. there are some natural alternatives to it though to some extent, like costus and ambrette. woody ambers, aldehydes and various modifiers could also be useful. Top...
I wonder what the synthetics are, as there are SO many super useful synthetics.
read the MSDS documents of the oils you want, then read more. we do have lots of data readily available nowadays.
That's what I mean lilybelle. We are human with all our flaws, and beneath the surface lies a savage. However our culture and values have changed tremendously. I would subjectively say for the better...
People rarely fail to prove that they too are human, they too are much less than perfect.
IMO the reaction against the duchafour diss is over the top and unnecessary. Sure one might understand...
I love it. Great fragrance, still quite unique as well.
why I think it's unlikely
it doesn't look like amber at all.
even if it did look like an amber many things that look like amber are not amber.
it doesn't melt
the smell could be due to a...
it's very unlikely
comme des garçons has some pretty over the top notes, like meteorite and magma in stephen jones for example:
for outrageous, I'd say...
subscribe to the chypre genre in general. that's where grandmas live.
cabochard and knize ten for a really hairy grandma.
habanita and habit rouge for the soft, humanist powder.
I got close to getting myself one of these, but I was late.
absolutely spot on.
I hear there is also a new version on the market, which I believe is the 3rd generation. don't know how different it is.
don't be so cynical. there are lots of great people around the internet, as long as the culture of the environment allows them to shine through. I'm sure there are quite a few nice people right here...
above all, it isn't french. so...
get 10ml of iso e super, mix with 90ml alcohol. presto.
despite my initial skepticism now I find myself wanting to try this.
I'd say cuir ottoman, but IIRC you already know/have/love it.
another contender might be daimiris by laboratorio olfattivo. it is also not an iris dominated fragrance, but there is a big chunk in...
Actually I hoped it to be the fragrance people perceive it to be. It turns quickly into a regular, quiet, nice woody accord. Maybe I should test it again.
Seems I need to try that norne thing.
papyrus de ciane ?
grandma chypres and skanky ouds get more air time when I'm by myself.
caravelle epicee was the first fragrance I thought of and I second that. It's much easier to wear than cdg.
also villoresi spezie, seeing you can stomach arabie.
I'll also add kelly caleche. I'm very partial to it. Really pretty.
Heeley's cuir pleine fleur could probably also be a contender, based on other peoples reviews. I sadly can not smell the...
I think they also wanted to piss off graphic designers with those all swash characters.
has anyone said zero yet? no?
warm pine scents are rare. while it's not close to yatagan at all, maybe fille en aiguilles could be worth a shot?
I'm also guessing you would like amouage tribute a lot.
I have sampled the new fragrances from odriu and JMT has made a big impression. The only other western fragrance with as much ballsy a jasmine is Kurkdjian's crystal limited edition. So very attar...
the thing that may ruing the fragrance is oxidization. naturally, it involves air. when the bottle is full there isn't much air to do any harm but when there is a lot of air inside the bottle, you...
It's too much of a good thing, and I like it.
oud al khaloud is very nice, but actually overpriced imo.
glad you like it.
for oud based fragrances leather oud and l'artisan's al oudh make the top for me.
zagorsk and eau de gouverneur are top for cold incense.
also, if you forget the name and the bottle, cdg artek standard might well be to your liking.
synthetics are no problem for me. it's just that at this point the word oud doesn't give much information either in the name nor the ingredient list. it's at most on par with the descriptions: "green...
a friend of mine who bought a brand new bottle recently. got my decant from him.
and I'm surprised you didn't like joseph abboud. similarity is a problematic subject anyways.
it's still being produced, but limited in distribution like dior jules.
if you can't find it, get joseph abboud. I think they are closely related.
had high hopes for it. perhaps that's why I found it lacking.
for me, italian means herbs, conifers and citrus. they should invest on what the image they have, instead of ruining it with "expansion"
My favorites in the caron line are l'anarchiste and yatagan. Yatagan is very distinct though. The animalic quality is different than all three, it's vegetal unlike all three, and it doesn't have a...
IIRC he hasn't done tongue in cheeks yet.
it's "terre" but it's so transparent and airy!
plus what hedonist said.
I do think that it's a good ad though.
Serge Lutens first
My gut feeling is that you'll find at least one favorite in CDG Incense line. Check that out as well. If you can, check out the whole range.
I see you also happen to like older...
I think you missed that the fragrance is the "essence of david beckham's spirit". That's the only note.

I think you missed that the fragrance is the "essence of david...
Well, I'm one of the few people who used the word duh so I guess I came off condescending somehow.
Sorry for that. Do you think being mainstream is a condescending argument? It might be used like...
airborne and wonderwood didn't do much for me, and parts of the description makes me drop my expectations severely.
still, it's a comme des garçons, and I'll have to sample it.
After seeing the box and smelling the female counterpart (the masculine bottle was away for a photoshoot, apparently) I was expecting this to be an amouage version of aventus, or something to that...
This is also my experience, although I'd expand the range to include drab.
I'm almost sad that I don't get to enjoy LN as much as people seem to do.
if you mean non-populist fragrances may not have a popular appeal, yeah. and duh.
I love it.
If you don't like it, try something else. Lots of fragrances, not enough life to enjoy them all.
I'll have to try profumi's amber then.
alfarom you lucky guy! I'm also pretty jealous. that's a very pretty presentation.
laurhum apparently is a haute bay rum. which makes sense, considering the style of odriu.
drseid I also really...
Many wonderful, crazy stuff in serge lutens line. It really boils down to preference.
Iris Silver Mist, Borneo, Chene, MKK, Tubereuse Criminelle, Fille en Aiguilles and Fumerie Turque are the ones...
I think it's unisex, but I would consider it more masculine than feminine.
lush - dirty.
this is also great.
you can't go wrong with any roudnitska in this genre.
that's correct my package was missing lafro. and I didn't really ask for any specific fragrance.
well laph, just get all of them. odriu doesn't seem to be making simple pleasantries. if you are going to skip on one, maybe l'eva, I'd say.
yes, lalfeogrigio is quite different than others. within the ones I've tested lalfeogrigio, lalfeorosa, eva and vis et honor are more immediately distinct than others.
I wish this line was more...
tirrenico is the closest one I can think of.
sweet wood and spice with an oud facet. absolutely pleasant. smelled it once, and liked it.
I recall it being somewhere between pure oud and incense oud. it has a similar vibe with both kilians and...
yeah it doesn't say anything about the concentration. even the lightest colognes are made to be 80% alcohol.
