I think of L'Homme and it makes me wanna weep
Sounds as though you should get Rien or Rien Intense first -- then Knize Ten won't shock you as much
Why don't we have 1 day a month with no moderators so we can govern ourselves - so a sort of anarchy will prevail?
They can then clear up the debris the following day :shocked:
From Bulgari Black to Dior Homme? They are so different that there could be thousands that make you vomit
The ones that you get on with are very diverse also
Can't really help
Oh dear -- I really don't think the Cartier would work in heat and humidity-- it is quite a 'dense' jam type rose suited for evenings out or cooler weather -- very lovely though
Can't comment on...
Yatagan has definitely been messed with -- the opening is much less challenging and seems much more 'user friendly'
Not sure this is a good thing in general, but I like it very much now
The one with the chillis -- TASTE
Then the 'cologne' and 'B-MEN'
That's two too many :evil:
English Pear and Freesia -- Jo Malone
Oh- just noticed -- this is a bit fem
Please ------ stop it :cry:
Because I remember owning and loving 'Crest' -- that's why
Wtf has happened since then?
Avaliable at Harrods only? Hmmm - may give them a testing
Have you checked whether your neighbours' Mum has actually passed away?
That is a mystery. They might be better than the original though?
Saw the modern version lying on it's side, selling for £13.99 at the weekend. So sad.
I like women to smell like this [ barnyard, faecal, animalic or urinous ]
Don't other men?
Drinks all round, barman! I am so happy
Wearing nubucks by Tods -- £320.00
Purchased Lanvin pumps for £150.00 in sale at Selfridges (were £350)
It's all relative though isn't it?
It's funny -- the most unsolicited compliments I've got from women have been for fragrances that women could quite easily wear, mainly based around tuberose. Also, very sweet ones.
Stick with Jeremy's advice then
I don't wear fragrances to get laid
A salient point. One to respect rather than put on skin. I prefer Cuir Cannage.
I was thinking the demise of Dunhill fragrances was complete, but I'll try it anyway
Tricky one -- most fragrances have a sort of 'gene pool'.
The opening of Nostalgia was pretty revelatory and the original M7 was a 'groundbreaker'
Man -- you seem DES----PER----ATE
GIT is wonderfully made and a very smooth ride -- I just don't like it
Ipso Facto -- EdH is my choice, however disparate the two are
Has Creed found it's rightful home?
I will never know :cry:
Yeah -- that's a nineties bottle alright
I have always liked it, but yes I can't trace any sandalwood in it.
Maybe worth layering with a dry sandalwood like Sandalo
Yes -- more curry fragrances please -- I love 'em
Thanks, darling, that was 'textbook ':2vrolijk_08:
Gaultier is niche then? Pretty sure Shiseido deal with their perfumes
Are you on mind-altering drugs?
If you can buy it in Boots, Superdrug or the Perfume Shop -- it's designer
Problem solved :thumbsup:
It's like living in a parallel world here
The flanker is even lovelier imo.
A lot of the Gantier (MPG) fragrances can still be picked up for under £100 a bottle -- well worth testing
I'd also recommend testing the ELdO range -- 50ml of...
Yikes -- that would be worth a fortune now on Ebay -- if it wasn't so crappy of course :wink:
I think I have a sample of IU Blue Laser somewhere - does that count? :cheesy:
Don't think either could be called a 'patchouli' in the base
It might be just the same musk used (there are scores to choose from)
I know this woman who wears Le Male
She smokes a pipe and wears Dr Martens
This is a hard one to work out :undecided:
Aventus Sport Blue
Maybe True Lust by Eldo ?
Verbena & Waterlily (Soft & Gentle) £2.35 a pop -- lovely
This is too simplistic imo. Individual circumstances are important, i.e. what you do for a living, family, friends and obviously how you feel personally, i.e. do you feel comfortable or...
Paco Rabanne PH -- vintage if possible
Mine have always been snug fitting -- sounds as though I have just been lucky
Maybe the batch variations extend to to the caps as well? :wink:
The old ones have a wide spray area and are bigger -- these look stingy
Never lost a cap in my life
Authentic maybe, but don't like them -- cheap looking
Two wrongs don't make a right
Perception mayhem! I don't get it at all
One is a sweet so called goumand mess -- the other is a sophisticated work of art (DHI)
Probabaly a mixture of cardamom and a fixative musk.
Ted Baker for Him
All readily available over here. I've smelt a lot worse and they are reasonably priced
I like the tobacco of Enigma
The thing is -- I don't really want to line his pockets again (for personal reasons)
Proves my point. Doesn't actually smell of petrol does it? More leathery than anything. It's a 'hard' wear but it will have it's fans.
All men's fragrances created by Creed since 1985 have a bit of GIT in them
They would be fools not to wouldn't they :rolleyesold:
Zeste Mandarine by Creed
I only really like Annick Goutal's citrusy fragrances -- they should work well
Well -- it would be a boring fragrance world if perfumers didn't experiment at all. I suspect Secretions Magnifique is a 'loss leader' for EldO, but sort of puts them 'on the map'. Bulgari Black is...
Definitely -- just can't remember what they were :vrolijk_26:
You must be the owner of this outfit?
Looks like Le TH there -- what year is that from?
Blimey-- DE finishes with a leather if I remember correctly? Very clever fragrance but a bit heavy for the summer imo.
Spraying Amarige with gay abandon? Bless her cotton socks
However, she may have lost her sense of smell as a direct result :undecided:
Love Equus, but doesn't strike me as a 'classic' smell
Maybe try 'At the Barber's ' by Martin Margiela
Think I penned a review here -- I like it. Nothing like Bahiana though. More like a 'Korma'.
Do any bottle called P Houseboy exist?
Now that is almost blasphemous. Subjectivity can't be streched that far.
A lovely citrus for spring or summer imo. Lasts surprisingly well also.
I don't normally recommend 'blind buys' but I don't think you will regret it with this one.
Yeah -- a lot of scratching around with not much to shout about. Was really up for that new sandalwood from Guerlain but that was disappointing .
I'm checking out 2016 proposed releases already...
Out for one year?
Not a lot fella
About £2000 for what I have and £98,000 for the stress
I'd be suspicious -- especially if they are very expensive
The important thing is to keep them out of direct sunlight
Fabric Conditioners are lined up now just like fragrances and perfumers are involved in the creations
Purchased a lovely Ylang Ylang one recently
Not much help to the OP -- just an aside
Well I went through a whole bottle -- there is a slight skank to it that makes it definitely unisex imo.
I prefer Cedre and Beyond Love.
New Balmain for Men
New Richard James for Men
YSL -- Kouros Silver (just interested )
First release by Louis Vuitton by Jacques Cavaliere (probably for women though)
Which came first -- the fragrance or the hat?
What I have noticed though, is I tend to wear shirt colours according to what fragrance I am going to wear -- darker hues for heaviness and lighter...
PE loses in a contest with practically every fragrance imo.
Agree -- I think a different mindset takes over if you are just testing or blagging -- than having filthy lucre to burn.
Why not save up for a few weeks and shop on a monthly or 2 monthly basis.
I'd say it's tough
I'd like to wear A La Nuit out but just can't
The only one I ever purchased was Spicy For Him
I nicked this from the other (unmentionable) website
'I remember Mia Farrow in Rosemary's Baby saying that she was wearing Detchema'
It's by Revillon
DHI isn't anything like Uomo (those type of scents?)
Fahrenheit has been mucked about with, but still cant think of one quite like it as an alternative. I would probably avoid wearing in the summer, but i'm quite fussy with seasonal wear.
The 500 ml is a splash isn't it? Not sure what the equivalent of 3-4 sprays would be?
3 times a week? Blimey, the 75ml would last a year easily imo.
I'm thinking of dropping for Eros too -- I like that juice :embarassed:
Women love those Kilian boxes -- a way into their hearts
The ideal for me would be to decant IB or CP into that great black bee bottle from Guerlain -- the busts can take a hike
You need to get out to the shops immediately and either spray from a sample bottle or purchase one.
I think I would have turned back and been late to work -- sad but true.
It's very blurred
Where does the Dior Privee line sit? It's hardly 'designer', but maybe it is? Chanel Exclusifs?
I think 'designer' has a slightly negative connotation here - beyond the normal...
They have a store in Brighton
The polite word is 'flannel'
Due to a lack of traceable historical evidence, there has been some skepticism on the authenticity of Creed's historical background. As shown by collectors and...
Nothing like a bit of bubble bursting you iconoclast.! :wink:
Completely true though
Beyond Love is amazing. The best By Kilian by far imo.
Sheldrake's Cedre for Serge Lutens is smashing also. No cedar but a lovely tuberose
I see a lot of bs about The One -- utterly boring imo
Chanel Allure Homme Edition Blanche 8/10
Chanel Allure Homme Sport 3/10
L`Occitane en Provence Eau des Baux 8/10
Dolce&Gabbana The One for Men 1/10
Christian Dior Dior Homme Intense 10/10
MI -- if only for the fact that Tabarome is such a travesty of the original, which was amazing
Absolutley none -- expect more dreck only
Think they have been made independently as general bottles, bit like decanters
Sorry, but they are pretty gross imo
No contest at all for me -- Egoiste by a huge distance
Well, 5 sprays of Interlude in the summer will practically render you unconscious :happy:
Hurrah -- way to go :thumbup:
A real 'sleeper'
Why would you?
After a heavy session you are worried about how you smell while looking as though you have just been run over by a bus
