Don't see any resemblance whatsoever . They are different as night and day tbh.
Good post Hednic, its almost like you read my mind , I was going to ask for suggestions for a masculine Jasmine, This might be it.
I have Sonia Rykiel Homme which has nice florals but I wanted...
Oud Ispahan has a nice rosy top note but its mainly about an animalic agarwood with patchouli and sandalwood in the background.
Its one of my favs.
Potion Royal black and Black Line have...
I own it .
Its a rose patch -sandalwood -leather- musk fragrance..
From the Manceras I have tried its best and masculine.
I have yet to try Back to Black.
Very safe blind buy
Thanks for the thesis, but its not really needed for a sub par fragrance.
I don't get why you feel the need to reply to anyone who has a dissenting opinion about Intenso,
To imply Intenso has...
Its basically Patchouli with a hint of florals.
I do not get any Cocoa.
I have Molinard's Patchouli and its about 80% similar to LIDGE.
They had Kokorico but it flopped
I thought this was actually pretty damn good. I tried this and was quite impressed. Its actually a much better version of Tom Ford's Noir Extreme which in turn was influenced by the original VR...
Thanks , you got me into the ST Dupont Oud series :happy:
Got my Oud Oriental today, very happy. Got it for a ridiculous bargain on Fragrancenet, where as I paid 80 bucks each for my 2 other bottles.
This fragrance is high quality, reminds me of...
Dior Homme sport 2008 version
To complete my ST Dupont Oud series, Oud Oriental
There is little sandalwood in it , the note is there but by the drydown its soo weak and faint , it really does not matter.
The scent is actually good but its so aqueous it lacks depth. It wears...
I bought the 2008 version today, interestingly .
I find it much better than the current version out there which is not invigorating as the older formulation.
Definitely one of the best designer releases I have tried this year.
Its like TDH with a nice incense note in particular Agarbatti, the combination of the ISO E super and Oud creates that effect....
How many L'Homme Flankers do they need and I thought the Le Parfum version was the intense version of La Nuit already lol.
YSL needs to come up with a new fragrance , they have milked the L'Homme...
Almost all of my designer fragrances come from fragrancenet , great selection and even better prices.
What is the production code series on the bottles?
Thats interesting some people have also said the formulation for Antaeus has also improved a lot ( 8xxx series).
This is a decent scent , but I still think Intense is the best in the line.
Thanks for bringing this to my attention, will look out for this.
Its seems really good, dudes are going ape shit about it on Fragrantica.
I dont care about the name either, the fragrance itself is everything, followed by the bottle. Dior bottles are solid and have excellent sprayers.
I am really looking forward to this fragrance, the...
I don't know why Guerlain did not use the same quality of ingredients as they did in the Desert Oriental series. The Oud note in those is superb, especially in Songe and Rose Nacree. Songe is very...
I thought this was a piss poor fragrance. I detected no Sandalwood or Oud. Its mostly semi sweet fruity tobacco scent with some generic woods in the background. The drydown is absymal.
Loewe 7, my sample was like incense the bottle I got ( reformulated I guess) was just cloves , it smelled like Ayurvedic medicine.
To complete my ST Dupont Oud line
Chypres were worn to mask the smell of cigarettes as they blend well with the smell.
Rose Oud fragrances also work very well.
An extremely over rated fragrance IMO.
If you get the extra concentree of RV from the Paris store YES. But honestly TDH is better blended.
+1 Thats what I exactly thought !
Based of the Vanishing point/ Route 66 imagery.
I am guessing it will be smokey and dry. I am thinking woods, tobacco and incense
What a useless article !
The writer is an obvious shill for IFRA.
Alamut and Sandolo
Oud Delice by Robert Piguet is a Oriental Woody fragrance for women and men. This is a new fragrance. Oud Delice was launched in 2015.
Top note: ...
Wishing you a speedy recovery Aphexacid !!
Its most probably Kurkdijian as he does most NG fragrances as well the original for Him was done by him.
I don't think humidity effects fragrances that much at all, BUT direct sunlight can wreak havoc. I stay in a hot climate, but I put my fragrances in a dark armoir, some are 20+ years old and they...
Whens the last time you heard " Johnny Deep is cool " OR "Johnny Depp is so handsome" .
Honestly he is a good actor but lets get real, looks wise he looks like a trailer trash Jerry Springer...
Based off what I tested at the Guerlain Boutique, I would say Jicky and MdM are 95% similar. MdM is basically a watered down Jicky in a Bee bottle.
Jicky is much richer and fuller esp in the EDP...
No, at Holt Renfrew in Canada
I tested this properly. I do not get Sandalwood or Oud wood at all, what I do get is , fruity cinnamon and tobacco. Its an ok scent but no where as good as theGuerlain Desert series. The drydown...
Yes Pavel, its very different from what is out there in the market, Kudos to the parfumer behind it. That being said . I am not impressed with the main line and the rest of the prive collection.
Dior Oud Ispahan
Dior Leather Oud
Montale Black Aoud
Bond NY Oud
Tom Ford Grey Vetiver
I tested this fragrance today from Ferragamo's prive line and I was quite impressed, considering I am not a fan of any of their other fragrances.
A very unique scent , it reminded me of Indian...
i tested this today, its decent but I did not get much vetiver. I mean its there but not a true vetiver scent.
Secretions Magnifique is so disgusting , what were they thinking when making this? It seems geared toward psychotic killers or something.
In terms of being safe and pleasant. I think Chanel...
They have quality fragrances so I am curious to try it.
I tested this , waaaaaaaay too sweet. It reminds me of something a Sorority bimbo named Amber or Becki would wear.
Much prefer the original.
Chanel Bleu de Chanel EDT
I would also recomemnd Loewe 7 , which is just incense and cloves
That one is quite spicy!
Its just ISO e super and frankincense no spices.
Wow first time seeing that! Thanks!
I know but I want to see the "MADE IN USA" never ever seen that on a bottle.
This is total news to me. Can anyone post a MADE IN USA bottle please???
Thats good you liked the reformulated version.
This looks like a safe blind buy for me.
How prominent is the ginger Anton pan??
Thanks for the info
Don't make ridiculous assumptions and thanks for that trollish response. Firstly Black Potion does not have any Norlimbanol , its mostly centered on leather , rose and a Cashmeran drydown.
The original Michel Germain Sexual which I got in high school was really good, this line seems to do well, Macy's has been carrying them for years now.
Btw I did indeed order a sample, they ended up sending 2 samples one came from SF and the other from NYC.
Well it smells similar, the wonderful topnotes and midnotes are not the same. The cumin...
No need to be defensive. Often people have no other option to blind buy because of location and how available it is. There are no samples available for this particular fragrance. I blind buy often...
I agree with you this time His shipping is strange. I bought it and it was sitting in the customs in Dubai for 2.5 weeks than BAM, it got Fedexed in 3 days.
It was a bit annoying and I did get a...
Monica on basenotes do decants, otherwise you can only but it in boutiques.
Unfortunately to my nose, this one has been watered down, I guess with Estee Lauder taking over coupled with new IFRA...
Well most reviews even on Fragrantica made the comparison and I agree. Too bad your nose cannot pick up on it.
I blind bought and its definitely one of my best blind buys.
It was made with the purpose of attracting that customer. It has same perfumer and it has the same elements of Incense, ginger, papyrus ,cedar , except its switched up with a leather oud note...
I told that Ebay seller to start selling them as I knew a lot of Basenoters would want it, they are selling like hot cakes, no wonder he jacked up the price.
Its quite similar to GPH I but does...
if it has civet , it has me at Hello
Top notes: bergamot, nutmeg, saffron
Heart: leather, violet leaves
Base: cedar, tonka, moss
thats a sexy bad ass bottle. I own 2 Balmain scents and both are quality fragrances. ( Carbone and Monsieur Balmain)
Lot of their fragrances went through reformulations in 2012 and became more watered down, they are many threads on this in the archives.
Though with the current boutique which has just opened, they...
Thats what I thought. I think Morris perfumes folded and only the Bois 1920 series was kept
Has this line been discontinued??
I have a full bottle of Zafferano, and recently purchased a 50 ml bottle from Fragrancenet for a great deal.
Its a beautiful dusty rose and authentic Saffron...
I frankly see no connection.
i liked the intense waaay more.
The original has too much pepper and cardamom coupled with the plasticky rose, which I cannod stand,
The Intense is more of a Rosey Sandalwood, with sandalwood...
I thought its pretty well made, dare I say I actually like it better than pure Malt lol.
I find Dior Homme Cologne better and stronger. Plus you get 125 ml.
Guerlain Ideal Cologne has a different topnote but dries down into the same thing as Dior Homme cologne but a bit weaker.
Many of my designer fragrances and few niches come from Fragrancenet , 25% coupon for already discounted prices, is a no brainer.
Xeryus Rouge ( vintage)
What pets do you have hednic?
If I really like Cuir Cannage , would Cuir Mauresque be safe blind buy???
Thus far I really like ADG profumo
Yes it has been a while, I think that last time I saw you actively posting was around 2011.
Will you be there to visit the store? If so, please do give your comments.
Hey there Cairo!
Thanks for the image!
Your posting after a VERY LONG time.
Yes and your right about the other seller, abu jouda his shipping is very spotty, this time it almost tried my patience.
I think they listed it just recently. Did you place an order? Do let me...
its on sale here Hednic
I have a feeling its an intense version of it.
well this should come as a surprise lool:
MANCERA IN PARIS
We are pleased to announce that Mancera Parfums will be distributed in Paris from the 15.05.2015 in the new Montale Parfums shop !!
Kenzo Jungle Homme is centered around nutmeg and a perfect Summer fragrance.
Can you give me your batch number of your bottle?
