That is a beautiful ad, indeed.
It has been an education for me, but in the way that I've already suggested. And an education is never a pity.
Because in this entire thread there is not one of you man enough to just say. 'Hey, what I really wanted to agree with was just that 900 is a great cologne. I didn't really want to agree that there...
I quoted you because I intended to answer your question. But I understand your resentment.
I had not intended to include you in with "all of us" at all. Interesting that you thought I was doing...
And this is what I get for being nice to you!
I see what you mean it is something like "the three stooges go to a semantics convention." :rolleyes:
When someone says "Aramis 900 is one of the few men's colognes that's worth a shit", it...
I don't see any point in saying anything more here: it is perfectly obvious that you have no ability whatsoever to read the exchange and see what I was protesting about or why I felt attacked and...
I'm getting a little tired of silly imbeciles trying to pretend that my defence of myself constitutes an unprovoked attack. Grow up or go away.

Great scent, that attracts too little comment here.
I still think you should try it but I'm with Cognoscento on this: I think your reaction will be "this is too old for me". Just a wild hunch.
I'd say in this case the gender of the nouns follows the sex of the gods of those heavenly bodies. In most Indo-European derived cultures the sun god is masculine.
It may be that the way...
Yes, it was very common in the immediate post war generation, and it was an expression solely used by women, because it was mainly they who had to rent the stall. Very unfair, and I can remember my...
This is not that old: it was very common in my mother's generation. And public toilets in England cost money until quite recently, though more than a penny nowadays.
Sure. You keep telling yourself that.

You know Mikey, the thing that I notice most about your supercilious post is that in the entirety of it there is absolutely no mention of the...
Yes, it is but it's really an evening scent and it will only last that long. Don't think of it as a day long scent.
I have three generations of III and the longevity gets less with each generation. I have one of the black box scents and I can only describe it as rancid compared to the original and even the red...
Just try it you'll answer your own question.
(The laughter dried on his lips when Eluard informed him that he was from Portsmouth :D )
This is fine by me — you misunderstood what part of Pluran's statement I was objecting to, and responded. I think I've made it clear now what I was objecting to and why. I see nothing more to add to...
I'm sorry but I have to wonder about your ability to read. And, no, I don't respect your ability to misunderstand in such a flagrant fashion what I said, and what previous posters have said. And my...
Guess? for Men
the original discontinued frag.
Rubbish! It's just an example of argumentative hyperbolae. There are many, many great male fragrances and I could rattle off twenty without even trying. So, for that matter, could Pluran because he...
I suggest Gucci PH. After the initial blast of incense it goes into a cedar/sandalwood fragrance that lasts and lasts. This is one that will have your girlfriend nuzzling your collar!
(And it is...
Thanks Mic! Much obliged.
You are in possession of a lot of interesting information there scentimus! There is a long lost, highly lamented Aramis scent called Chromatics. Do you happen to know if that was also doubled up by a...
I have fragrances in my cabinet that are 15 years old and they still smell exactly the same. It really depends on how much heat and light they are exposed to.
I knew that male bottom would get to you!
What beautiful ads from the classic art deco period! Thank you.
It is very hard to smell civet, because it is there not as something to smell but to support the construction of the fragrance. All I can really smell of civet is a scent a little like dirt, somwhere...
The late sixties were charcterised by Patchouli oil and Aramis (classic). The latter smelt much stronger, and was a v. much darker colour than the juice that now passes under that name.
I'm really sorry to hear of your awful tribulations, Alex. Really sorry. But given your medical condition perhaps you shouldn't be doing anything that might harm the lining of your lungs at this...
OK narcus, confession time how much Derby have you stockpiled against the nuclear winter that is discontinuation?
Ha! Here is the thread that answers the poster's original question:
Aromatics vs 900
I think Guerlain's L'Instant EDP is a rather fine gourmand.
I'm very surprised no Burberry scent made it into the top five.
Bandit it arrived this week and I am test driving it post-purchase. All my nose is getting is rose, quite a beautiful rose, but just rose no dirt or sweat. Damned nose!
I think with RG it might be a case of grab it while you can it might not be around much longer. That said I prefer Azzarro, because it is as you say "old school", a more forward kind of old...
Seconded there is a LOT of musk in the drydown of this one. For me this makes it a really interesting citrus scent.
Like kbe I only have AdG from this list, and I never wear it. Jeesus, what a bunch of unfashionable bastards we all are!
Personalities are multi-facetted beasts, never simple, never one-dimensional. The thing is to find more fragrances that have that feeling of complementing you, but a different aspect of yourself. If...
That's a rec that's good enough for me.
Interesting! Even JHL! Is 900 readily available in the U.S.? I just looked at Fragrance X and they don't have it online.
I don't know what 3661 means but I have noticed previously that Aramis fragrances are made in different places in the world and have regional differences depending on where they are made. I first...
I disagree with pretty much everyone here! :D In my view fragrances are priced way too cheap. It is the fact that they are priced too cheap that keeps driving the trend to discontinue or reformulate...
Mic can you look on the bottle and tell us where yours was made.
Great review Hirch! Mouth watering! I've never seen any Mike Storer scents "down under", so maybe this is one that has to be travelled for.
Mikeperez was singing the praises of Clinique Aromatiques recently. Maybe he could shed some light on the comparison.
I must say I love threads that make me want to try something that I've...
You got it. Congratulations! I said it was a speed round.
The return of the prodigal daughter! What no Partridge Family guesses? :D
But no, sorry, not Givenchy - L'Interdit, though you're along the right lines.
(And there's no sound alike to this...
Brotha Ill put in a speed round if I may before you go with yours. I feel inspired.
House and fragrance.
Well done Tang!
This is something (the EDP) that I would certainly like to try but suspect that it won't be available outside Nth America.
So a shout out to the rest of the world: anyone else seen this?
The one to try to get is the older bottle with the red cap. The box also has a light gold trim around the outside. The red pettled box is otherwise the same, but the original juice was manufactured...
I'm not sure if this has been covered here: but does everyone know that Gucci Rush has been discontinued, about six months ago, possibly more? I mention this only because those who love it might want...
Interesting! I smelled this for the second time today got sprayed in a department store. The opening is a mess and not particularly inviting. But the musky-woody drydown, particularly the guaiac...
It is indeed xx396! Scent On!
well………………ok then.………………apology accepted!
:: mumbles fine young man, that! Goes back to raking up leaves, shooing kids away from topiary llamas.. ::
I'll bet that you would also notice that people of your age never apologise for the same reason.
(This seems one of the curses of the Age to me: people never have the balls to just apologise.)
How about Vanille West Indies?
LOL Drag this man back to off-topic in chains!
Unless I'm sick and then it's just a matter of not being able to drag myself over to where they are.
I wear more when I'm alone than when I go out.
And how about Fumerie Turque for Jose Ferrer? Suitably unisex?
For the trek across the desert it would have to be Montale's Cuir d'Arabia.
We must also remember that Omar Shariff has his own signature fragrance so we should definitely put that in there...
Thanks gupts --- I'm going after it!
The Dreamer for $45 Aus, which was a good buy here. Great scent!
The original Gucci PH now goes for about $250 US for a 3.3 oz bottle. I've just bought a 1oz bottle so will throw in my 2cents when it arrives. It's the kind of thing I will probably like, but your...
Yes, I wondered that — you do you have to get rid of anything? You're only 20 years old: you've got about sixty years to try to get through what you've got. I reckon you'll run out by the time you're...
I gave in today and picked up The Dreamer — for a long time I resisted as I didn't think it would last. I like it a lot, and it lasts!, but I am really struck by the fact that the tobacco accord is...
What a sensitive little orchid you are!
It was stocked by David Jones in Australia as late as November of last year as I almost bought some. Assuming they didn't send it all back there may still be some in one of the stores.
Thanks, so much! Mildly of cedar, I'd say, because it is varnished. But the Heritage that is in the box is also excellent: it is a first release of the fragrance and it smells wonderful. Very pure....
This is such a lovely, warm-hearted reply that it makes me, also, very glad that there's an internet. Please talk about Guerlain as much as you like: passion is contagious.
(Oh and you should do a...
There you go again with your Americano-centric thinking!! (kidding, kidding!)
Nope, there are at least three of us.
Yes, good thought: try spraying them on your legs. Assuming that you have hairy legs most of us do they should act as excellent scent-catchers.
A very informative thread I immediately went out (figuratively speaking) and purchsed the parfum. Always wanted to own it, and now I do!
It's a great shame that Guerlain's Vetiver is not here: it would have gotten my vote.
Thanks these were two great interviews. Very interesting indeed!
Oxygene by Lanvin.
You're impressed, eh? I didn't even need to add: as smoked by a one-legged ex-sailor who has just jumped ship from Caracas; the silk sash he wears as a neck-tie might be thought to betray a dandyish...
I think you've attempted to clarify (or tweak) the question quite well, but I don't think it's entirely right either. Compare it to film icons: Brigitte Bardot is a film icon, as is Alain Delon. So...
Well iconic doesn't mean best, or most popular.
Given that I say that Eau Sauvage fits the icon status the best. But it is a hard question when you are talking about male scents.
Last month I would have gone for Patou PH but this month it has got to be Antaeus. I'm in love with this stuff despite a serious dalliance with Guerlain's Vetiver today.
Oh I'm too slutty to...
Yes, the notes are slightly different in the EDP, but to my mind it is perhaps even more wearable. The sharpness in the openining has been tamed down a bit think of rolling off the high frequencies...
I second the suggestion of MIchael Kors. For me the tobacco note is so distinctive that I can pinpoint what kind of tobacco it is: Cavendish pipe tobacco!
OK Tao, just for you, here is the whole rationale.
AC/DC are known to their fans as "Acker Dacker", but since they only say it, never spell it, it might as well be spelled Acca Dacca. Replace the...
We have a Winnnahhhh!! That is right BrothaG. And well done to you!
(Now that wasn't so hard, was it kiddies?)
And that is good night from me.
OK great Indiscreet, I knew that either you or Lily would recognise the band. Well done. It is AC DC.
REM are from Athens Georgia, but I mean the other Athens, the one in Greece.
So here is...
The puzzle won't fade, it will be here until it is solved! I haven't seen any sign of a serious attempt as yet.
And no to your guesses.
No, sorry tao!
Surely someone knows the name of this band? Surely!? I mean, they are really famous!
No, but it is in England.
"Wild" was the only thing correct here. :D No, to the rest, and certainly not the Partridge family! But a noble attempt!
The second clue should be right up your street!
Thanks Brotha and R., nice puzzle (that painting looks like me with my frock coat on!). Now, gird your loins everyone for this one!
House and Fragrance:
Sounds like (and looks like!) these...
How about Voyageur by Jean Patou.
The painting is The Wanderer above the Sea and Fog by Caspar David Friedrich.
If I am right then I would like to have the...
But I'm puzzled: if there is no indication that you are wearing too much then why do you want to tone it down further?
Personally I think you should push it up by one spray and see what happens....
If you look at the times of the posts you'll see that we gave our answers before the editing of the colour of 'city'. So that couldn't have suggested anything.
Well done Brotha! If you hadn't...
I have been mulling over your post for two weeks now, trying to put my finger on what really disturbs me abour Chandler Burr. And I think I now have it!
There is no indication that he had the...
If we are right Brotha we will share it!
