Does TF Amber Absolute count?
Welcome back! Glad to see you reviewing again, i look forward to your write ups.
Interestingly, the vote choice up there is for Herod.
My choice would be Reflection Man. I can see how this could be cloying after a while. Less is more with Reflection in my opinion to avoid...
LOL. i got a sample of this from their store last year. I have tried and tired multiple times to see what people like in this but just cant. It smells sickly sweet to me and just persists for a long...
You also do not need to deal with salespeople in stores. simply walk in and tell them that you will call them over if you need help and smell to your hearts desire. That way you dont waste anyone's...
I truly enjoy your insight on this site. Im still waiting to read one post of yours that i am diametrically opposed to, and still haven't seen it yet.
Ugh too bad you just posted about this today. about 15 testers of them popped up for under $100 on ebay last week. (after coupon and ebay bucks). I'l keep an eye out if i come across anymore.
I cant say i know what real oud smells like, but my favorite frags with oud listed as a note are:
1. Roja Amber Aoud
2. Killian Musk Oud
3. Creed Royal Oud
4. Tom Ford Oud Wood
5. Roja Musk Oud
This is my experience as well. i enjoy it after that first hour but its not as mindblowing as i expected from reveiws. I have a 100ml bottle but wont go out of my way to buy more once its done.
Its probably just a typo. Wow i didnt know Notino carried Rojas too.
This! End of discussion.
They are like any other house with hits and misses. Nio is pretty decent albeit a bit too linear in (screeching in its opening). Other standouts which i own or have owned at some point are Richwood,...
With storefronts come expensive retail rents too as well..
Target and walmart sell some higher end fragrances like creed online through third party retailers.
Nice work OP. Good choices,
Hey hedic! So I contacted them and they said it would cost 60 pounds for them to ship it to the states which is a bit much. Luckily I have a friend who is traveling to the U.K. And I have asked him...
I wasn't a fan of most of the classic mentioned in this thread personally. Give them a shot, but the L'Art Et La Matiere collection is also worth checking out.
good advice here
Ha! I would take that trip in a heartbeat if i were still a single man without obligations. Fares are incredibly affordable these days.
Thats what i was scared of.. :(
If anyone would know, it would be you Hednic. Thanks! I wonder if proxy services agree to ship perfumes.. hmm
Has anyone purchased frags from this house in the U.S.? Any online sites that will ship here? Im interested in White Leather.
Came in to say something similar. Reminds me of a more spicy Epic man. Good frag if you like frags with pepper in it.
misread OP's criteria
To answer the question, probably Molecule 01.
Celestia would be a good one as long as you dont find it too floral/ feminine.
120 fragrances in 10 years? LOL. You are asking for advice in the wrong place buddy.
Ive heard great things about Fan your Flames. I need to check it out.
Tried the oud for the first time today and was impressed.
Came in to add Rich Warm Addictive from Zara. I don't really get the comparisons to Herod, but once it settles, its a really good smelling fragrance regardless of its price point.
I picked up a bottle of molecule 01 a couple of days ago and wore erolfa with it yesterday. Erolfa was clearly perceptible over 8 hrs later and I could still smell traces after I showered last night.
Still a lot cheaper than what they charge us in the states.
Has anyone received a bottle or tried this out yet?
Interesting to find that people found the Aqua version of Neroli Portofino stronger. I prefer the acqua version because it seemed a bit toned...
Great fragrance. I gotta get down to new york to check their other offerings. Glad to have a legit stateside spot to purchase instead of having to order from kuwait. How much is the bottle here?
Tom Ford Mandarino D'Amalfi Acqua
This is my experience for the most part. Vetiver i do catch whiffs of through out the day but its still pretty faint. Enigma stops projecting on me after the first hour (and thats being generous).It...
Vert Des Bois is a throwback to me. Not something i would recommend for someone "young" as the Op mentioned.
OP, i would lean towards a freshie like Mandarino D' Amalfi, Costa Azzura or Neroli...
I know this feeling all too well. It would make it a lot easier to select what to wear each morning.
nice deal on the AVentus. Looks legit.
Parfums De Marly
In that order.
I should buy it so i can finally join the oversprayers club..
The leaking bulb was a problem even before they changed it to the new design.
5 hours of projection sounds about right to me, and I'm ok with that. However after that, it lasts all day and then some on clothes. I don't use more than a couple of sprays though for me
LOL thats one hilarious review.
Ombre Leather 16 was my favorite release of the year.
I tried UAE and Sultanate of Oman 2 weeks ago and did not like them at all. Glad i finally tried though because i had my eye on them. I really enjoyed great britain, britannia and Nuwa, and will be...
Also tried Nuwa last week and really enjoyed it. There is no way i can afford it at that price, so ill keep enjoying it from tester sprays whenever i happen to be close to a store that carries Roja.
Intoxicated which is also my favorite from the house. Other offeriengs are Musk Oud and Cruel Intentions
Updating my post above. Did you end up making a purchase? I purchased a bottle from Amazon that is very balanced, on the verge of being coconut dominant. the batch number is 16a01. I am really happy...
HA same here.
I do. Well its in my gym bag. I go to the gym for 3-4 times a week, so i need to either reapply or apply something new after i shower.
Have you tried Amouage Myths for men or Amouage Interlude yet? Sounds like those would be right up your alley.
I would say its close between Amber oud and musk oud from Roja that get a lot of high praise in my experience, but i will give the nod to amber oud. That being said, please please try them out if you...
Yea you are not the only one. Spice and Wood, Italian Cypress and Royal Oud are the only ones that makes it out in the winter months. Although i did wear Aventus and Spice and Wood together last week...
man ill be following this thread. I used to love VIW so much but i really dislike lime in fragrances and it has become a lime dominant fragrance to me.
arabian oud kalemat
Ha! great post! i scored 27
Ha! You and me both. I get stressed out just driving by the packed parking lots. Thanks! ill check again at a different store.
Really? I looked in my store and they didn't have it, (the have the regular L'occitane body wash, not Gel Douche des bavx) and the SA didn't have a clue about it. Also it isn't listed as available...
No worries at all, i was just wondering if i was violating the law! :) Thanks for sharing the pics!
i really need to try the original Bel Ami. so many mentions of it. Is it impossible to find remnants in stores and how do you recognize it?
Molton Brown has a nice eucaluptus body wah.
Does anyone know where I can purchase the shower gel of this in the U.S?
i see this site but dont know how reputable it is
The highlighted is interesting and news to me. I done the VAT refund multiple times while wearing items of clothing i purchased abroad. No one asked to inspect luggage or check to...
Yea it was a pretty good deal. You could also couple it with a kilian promotion where they filled an atomizer filled with any kilian fragrance of your choice if you purchased a byKilian fragrance.
Nope. It never crossed my mind and not at all. Besides, these people try to evoke memory associations in their target audiences minds. It makes sense to use a word or phrase that describes the...
Yes I do because I always shower again before a night out. At that point I generally apply a different frag, but sometimes, I go back to what I wore earlier.
Does Xerjoff Uden count? I think it has a bit of a bitter accord and it lasts a while in my experience.
Mythrol, please continue your quest and dont let individual opinions detract you from the helpful information you are giving the rest of the forum.
I have been looking forward to your Richwood...
i second Jive's comment. Seriously dont limit yourself to just the mens offering. The creative director in an interview i read said they didn't really create gender leaning versions and viewed the...
Got the soap in as well. I like the smell, but it feels like it dries my skin out a lot more than other soaps i have used in the past.
Same here. The added vanilla makes it a lot more wearable than todays current Fahrenheit.
The performance of Naxos tips it over the edge for me. It just keeps going all day. Anything more than a couple of sprays is overkill.
Do we really have to go through this yet again???
Lol what game would you be playing good sir?
Yea they dont have many that appeal to me. Bleecker street is the one i own a substantial decant of approx 30 mls. I also own less than 10mls of Riverside drive. I bought Silver Factory but im trying...
ok thanks for the info!
was there a 40 euro charge for shipping for you?
I persoanlly do not think there is that much of a difference if any between the two. The supposedly new one lasts a long time on me. I do get anosmic to it after a while though
Not at all. They will still be on you. How would it be a waste? Only danger sf that it may get a bit cloying in the heat.
The closest thing that i have experienced to T.I. is Dior's Feve Delicieuse. i dont know anything else that is somewhat close.
Will happily buy and wear it. I don't display my fragrances so the i could not care less what the bottle looks like.
Excellent list. Sandalwood is one of my fav notes. Looking forward to stuff ill purchase from this!
75 ml looks better. But if its a frag you wear a lot, you have to get the 120ml.
All you need is right here
Great update! I loved the line about placing more emphasis on the smell over the performance of a fragrance! That's my philosophy as well.
Well done sir!
It's the ashy note! Ombré leather lasts as long as Tuscan Leather on me. No worries about longevity for me (it's almost too long lol) . It is easily perceived also. Excellent flanker.
I'm glad I have no longevity issues with this one. I could smell it the next morning and it was from a lil sample vial they give you at Nordstrom. I just received a 50 ml decant. I hope it performs...
Creation E to a lesser extent.
That 10% makes all the difference. What use is it to have a high end muscle car that is overkill for your every day mundane tasks like running erands and going to the grocery store? Tuscan Leather is...
Your Least favourite: Tabarome mellisime
Most Unique: Jardin D' Amalfi
Worst Performer: Virgin Island Water
Yet to try: Vintage Tabarome
Wish you owned but don't: Full bottle...
i own and use L'occitane Baux shower gel and it is excellent. I want to get theJubilation XXv one but its a bit pricier than i care to spend at the
As long as you have an office door to spare your co workers :)
I'll echo ithat its not something i would recommend anyone wear to work. That being said, one spray on the body should be fine.
Noir De Noir would be my choice. Neither one is "office safe" per se as they are pretty heavy fragrances. That being said, you can wear one spray under your clothing and still perceive it without...
Ebay and the Facebook groups. They cost more than the current version. I dont think the reforumlation made it sweeter from what ive read.
I agree with the highlighted. I suppose if i own more than a couple of their products, i like the house? I have no affinity to any houses though.
For going out, from your list above, i would say Noir de Noir.
My favorite overall used to be Italian Cypress for me, but after encountering Ombre Leather 16, we have a new champion. Excellent...
This has easily become my fav Tom Ford. It is very similar to Tuscan Leather, and its perfect. It smells like a lighter Godolphin to me. I am definitely getting a large decant of it
