Can we have a simpler list in one single page :)
I finally received my Aventus split from Remik.
I must say that I really appreciate the quality of the bottle (good pump size). Custom labels of the fragrance name and batch number even aligned...
I believe this to be the case.
I thought I would drop by a boutique and try Royal Oud (which wasn't my style) and took the opportunity to try couple of sprays of GIT tester on my hand. This GIT was very pleasant, creamy and smooth...
Any ideas when we might start seeing 2015 batches?
Mine doesn't even smell like Aventus. #CreedSorryNotSorry
Did you have to buy the Milano from duty free?
It satisfies my curiosity lol.
But I think it is most fair to Remik. Because he has been diligent and transparent in conducting his splits. Good product presentation, responsive, proactive, and...
Yep, I only participate when I know I can pay as soon as I send a PM to request to be a part of any splits.
I recently purchased Travalo to carry around 5ml of Creed fragrance, while on my dresser at home I have the decanted atomizer bottle.
In my experience, the problem with Travalo is they occasional...
I had a problem with this thread not loading in various browsers, too. Figured out that the special chracters in "Armani-Privé-Dior-Privée" caused it and had to replace it with normal "E".
Nope, I am lucky in that my height, shoulder width and body shape fits perfect with cheaper brands.
Does Aventus set at the bottom of a bottle? I bought my last one off a split and only some of the participants were happy with projection and longevity.
The rest of us just got what seemed like...
I tested new Aventus arrivals today (so I was told by the assistant) at a department store. The bottom where the batch number is usually displayed was masked by a sticker so I couldn't tell which...
Four years.. This thread is immortal [emoji23]
Hi Remik, I've sent the payment for my part of the Aventus split, thanks!
Hi Remik, I'll take the last 100ml of Aventus in the split off your hand. Payment details please.
Hi Remik, what's the batch number of the current Aventus split? I might be interested in 100ml.
Aventus, batch 14H01.
This, and to me it smells almost like a flower and some kind of sweet grapefruit. Something about it reminds me of One Million, Creed really needs to put in quality control.
Pity you don't do International shipping, after having purchased a bad batch I really need a good replacement.
Please keep us posted!
Same, I am usually fine with variations in Aventus. Not this time.
I got my 14H01 from a recent split on the split board. After about 4 weeks wait, it was the first time a fragrance sent me into a head spin and difficulty breathing. The juice doesn't last, doesn't...
Thanks all, which one do you think would do best in the heat? Tom Ford Grey Vetiver turned out rather pleasant after an hour (EDP), the medicinal scent fades away after the first 30 minutes. Not sure...
Hi all, which all-round vetiver scent would you pick, if you have to pick one or two?
Skimmed through the reviews, these vetiver scents seem to be the common candidates.
Hi gents, I have $150 or slightly more (including postage) to spend on a fragrance. Which one fragrance would you recommend?
Recently made purchases on fresher scents. It's now the beginning of...
Would you care to share?
I kid you not, Pure Malt unblocks my nose :lolk:
Do we lose our spots if we don't pay within, say, 4 weeks?
This should be an etiquette for split participants :D
Thanks Remik, not rushing you just wanted to know what to expect.
Does anybody knows how soon after collecting the payments will Remik usually ships the splits / different shipping options?
The real smell of life, my friend. Perhaps you should try a different brand.
Just a quick tip, if you have pets then you should avoid tea tree oil. Extremely toxic and could even paralyse them.
I'm glad to see others are also interested in preserving the environment!
I switch to different brands and products as they are made available. At the moment I use Earth Choice and Organic Care.
Organic bio degradable natural stuff that is friendly to the environment. So are my dish detergent and cleaning products. Environment first, smelling good second.
I don't know which city you live in, but that sounds like my train rides to and from work.. suffocating :lolk:
Patiently waiting for Green Irish Tweed split to close, more takers please :)
Musc Ravageur by Frederic Malle!
Allure Homme Sport. I gym at lunch break and it's refreshing!
So many leagues away from Allure Homme Sport, sorry :laugh:
I don't know about the price tag of this unknown fragrance, but the scent of it just mushes the mind.. in a good way lol
I can recall having smelled a couple of whiffs of a male fragrance in an empty elevator at work quite many years ago.
The smell was magical, it was fresh, very bright but grounded, slightly spicy...
None in my city to sample :cry:
I'm interested in 100ml of Green Irish Tweed, still available?
Thanks guys, I stopped by a store that sells some niche fragrances.
They have limited number of niche fragrances so I couldn't them all.
I managed to test Tom Ford's Tobacco Vanille, the mid...
The summer has cooled down a little, and I'm looking for a scent in a reasonable price range to transition me from the end of summer, to autumn, and winter.
I like and owned Pure Malt and GIT...
Is it just me or the price has recently gone up? I think I got a 4oz bottle shipped to Australia for around $275 AUD two years ago from Fragrancenet.
I've ran out of Creed a long while ago, looking at getting new 4 oz bottles.
If I recall correctly, I purchased previous bottles from Fragrancenet. Does anybody have a suggestion of the best...
We are heading towards warmer months now and the sun has been hot in the past weeks. It definitely smells different.
Yeah, what a waste of good fragrance and money :(
Yes I forgot, and I had to be in and out of town working off-site. That aside, should I just replace Aventus with a new bottle of Aventus or get GIT?
I don't have uncover car park, so my car is almost always left in the sun. I left half a bottle of 250ml Aventus in the side compartment of my car door for 4 weeks! To my horror I brought Aventus up...
Not sure if good or bad :grin:
Hopefully this is what happened here.
Anyone else know of the quality of the current batch of Aventus at Fragrancenet?
I ordered Aventus last week, checked order status today on their web site and it shows as In Our Warehouse. It's been 4 days, anyone recently ordered from Fragrancenet and experiencing the same delay...
I was contemplating the same thing so I walked into a store and grabbed Aventus, then applied 3 full sprays to my arm at 5:20PM. That night I went out and pretty much passed out without having shower...
Good day Basenoters, I've finished both GIT and Aventus over the last summer and need to restock for winter. I only want to purchase one at this time, what do you recommend?
I'll probably buy one...

Hi Sammyjenkis, yes I did purchase one from Fragrancenet last week. Received a one with Arabic writing under the bottle. First impression wasn't so great, but I'll hold on to the bottle and see if...
Hi BN'ers. I've just received A3211NO1 from Fragrancenet and I have to say it's very disappoint for the money paid.
The bottle like many described the batch number is engraved onto the back of the...
My blood smells sort of like that animalic and a touch of metallic scent off Kouros. I used to bleed on a regular basis doing contact sports, so pretty sure it's not just my imagination.
Something that actually smells nice, or so you were told. Also what was the reaction you received.
While she whispers to him in voice soft and low.. "pass me... my.... inhaler..."
Not sure if you're joking or that's just the way Adelaidians roll.
After glancing at Kouros everytime I visit a fragrance store I've given in and bought a 50ml bottle. Personally I find this scent both intriguing, well done and at times disgusted by it.
Is there one?
Last post was almost 2 months ago. Anyone bought a bottle of GIT from Fragrancenet in recent week? What batch can I expect?
Was it Flacon or the dark sand bottle? At $285 for a 4oz compared to FragranceNet I think it's rather expensive. Has anybody purchased from FragranceNet recently and how is the quality / batch?
First post for September! *Bump*
I've decided to get another bottle of GIT, from the posts the batch A3211N01 is the one I should get. The problem is the only place in this city that has GIT...
Please pick one or suggest something else.
My GIT (lol) isn't so sparkly, it's more warm and soothing. Has anyone got GIT from FragranceNet lately and how's the batch they've got? Otherwise AHS, though the price isn't too much different.
I've been wanting to get AHS for a while, though my GIT is running low. So guys, GIT or AHS for this Spring / Summer?
sancherr - My bottle of Aventus wasn't that smokey at first. After a few months the smokey note became stronger. Perhaps it was just my nose at the time.
I've sampled Bleu on a rather warm day. The scent is too heavy, thick and warm for our summer. I could see myself get really cranky wearing Bleu.
I don't remember whether it was Allure Homme Sport...
OP, which one did you like better?
It should be made into an etiquette that whenever this is said you should give the names of these other ones. Don't leave us hanging :grin:
Couldn't believe it, my local shopping mall stocks CK One Shock. I bought one today, sprayed it on and after hours of warm weather it mixed with my sweat and smelled to me "a little" like L'Instant...
I have to use that trick of yours when people ask me next time.
I would love to get one from Neiman Marcus, but the price is $285. Compared to FragranceNet (fake?) for almost half the price.
You are indeed very dirty.
I hope you didn't tell everyone of this mythical potion ; )
Where did you get yours from?
Dr_Rudi, I haven't heard of Boots before, thanks :)
Hi CoL, do they ship internationally and what's the web site address?
Sounds very interesting and the reviews make me want to get it blind. Can't it find it anywhere though that will ship to Aust.
Will this make a good summer scent?
Gents, I've been wearing down my flacon of GIT all year round. Any suggestions for other highly complimented scents for SUMMER?
The weather is transitioning into wet and warm summer here soon.
Thank you Emlynevermore, I already selected a nubmer of them and decided I would really appreciate fragrance related suggestions which is why I asked. I couldn't have said it better than what you did...
HAHAHAAH lol yes hair from the head.
I've discovered why this bottle of GIT has given me much success and compliments from the ladies. Hair! I found human hair inside my bottle of GIT, then it all just came to me.
I am sorry buddy, but I really don't need dating advice. I've worked on my physical fitness, my manners, topics of conversation, my haircut, style, hygiene, the way I carry myself, etc, heck even my...
Yes, yes, I gotcha but. I have my main course, just need your opinions about the appetizer, before I score a dessert ;)
Edit: That was so bloody funny
Hey guys, going to a house party tonight with lots of mid-twenty girls :grin: What do I wear with my casual attire?
L'Instant de Gurlain Extreme?
Aventus? (Hasn't got any...
Update - I've just received my bottle of L'Instant Extreme yesterday. Initial impression, wasn't all that impressed. But after a day has gone by, I'm growing more and more fond of this finely crafted...
No it's all fine, you gave us your opinion with it's very own values and contribution. All I did was to follow you and do the same, there are always common grounds to stand on :)
Women appreciate men that look after themselves, in terms of style, cleanliness, the way they look (fit / unfit), social status (cars / house / whatever), their manners, etc. Most of these are on the...
I need to correct my last post about the GIT I bought, the smell has changed and is better than before. I still like the bottle I bought from FragranceNet a lot better.
Fragrancenet had the black...
I'm not usually a fan of Amouge, but there's something special about Opus IV.
Now now, what do you suggest I do to not overapply A*Men? Do I spray it 2 meters into the air twice, open my arms, close my eyes and wait for the mist to rain down on me?
Not me, as your "we" don't include me. Mugler Cologne is very affordable at the moment so I'm tempted to get a big bottle :(
I'm surprised though by the poll result that A*Men original is...
