    Absolutely nothing is accomplished by posting the names of 5 fragrances. It's really incredibly pointless.

    Re: Masculine, Sexy, Rose fragrance

    Diptyque's Vetyvero is a combination of vetiver and rose. While it's only 50-ish percent rose and the vetiver is still the primary note, the rose note definitely adds a lot of smoothness while the...

    Re: Sample Of The Day - July 2010

    Diptyque's Vetyvero today. I've worn this at least three times before, and every time I love it more. I love the smell of vetiver, but I never want to wear something that is prominently vetiver. So...
  8. Re: summer and winter scent for a high schooler

    If Gucci Sport is out of your price range, then I'd go for some budget stuff. Any of the Claiborne stuff is typically pretty decent and worth the (often minimal) price. Claiborne Sport and Lucky You...

    Re: Fragrances from the House of Diptyque

    Vetyvero isn't getting nearly as much love as it should. Rose and vetiver? Yesssss.

    Diptyque's scents are all fairly organic and plant-like, but they're all quality and very genuine smelling. I...
  10. Re: Your Favorite Fragrance has just been....discontinued!

    I'd move on. There are thousands out there to try, so I wouldn't worry about stocking up on the same one just because at the time I liked it a lot.

    Re: Sample Of The Day - July 2010

    Aedes hooked me up quite a bit, so the next month or two will be nonstop sampling. Today was L'Artisan's Dzongkha. My collection is boring and designer, so wearing this was definitely something new....

    Re: Your favorite Gourmand

    I've always loved AMen, but I find B9's New Haarlem to be a lot more wearable, and Mechant Loup to be even more elegant and interesting.
  13. Re: Tom Ford Grey Vetiver vs. Creed Original Vetiver

    I think that while it's there, the Original Vetiver is a better smell. The problem is that I could apply the Creed and reapply it about 6 times to keep it there in the time it takes the Grey Vetiver...

    Aedes was absolutely stunning. When I shyly asked about a sample or two, the owner asked me what all I was interested in,...

    Best option in NYC?

    Sticky: Re: On Getting Free Samples from Companies Now

    I'll add to that, Diptyque sent me a package with a handwritten note and 5 2ml sprays of some of their stuff. Besides Divine, that's about the most personal I've seen from a company.

    Re: Voyage d' Hermes

    I found this to be a more complex, elegant version of azzaro chrome. Light and nice, a good summer scent, but nothing I'd pay full price for.
  20. When does smelling good turn into self centeredness/vanity?

    I love fragrance and I do believe that people here have more respect for their olfactory sense than most.

    ...but often times I've seen people reference wearing cologne on walks, what scent to wear...
  21. Re: Please recommend fragances heavie long lasting!

    Tom Ford's Grey Vetiver by far has the best longevity of anything I've worn. I remember once putting it on at 4 p.m. The next morning, after running and sweating and working out, I realized that it...

    I'm interested in trying something natural like this, so far everything I own pretty much falls under the 'synthetic' category.

    Re: Sample Of The Day ~ May 2010

    Today I used up my sample of Mugler's Sunessence, and in the evening wore a sample of Azzaro Chrome Sport.

    The Sunessence is a good summer version of A*Men. Fresher, not as deep, not as strong. I...
