Eventually for limited time I'm sure.
Call creed boutique and ask.
I am at a work related conference for 2 days and I brought with me one cologne only: Dior homme. Works for the day meetings and works for the evening get togethers. Classy and elegant. Not...
Great thread. Made my morning.
One of the best scents I have ever smelled.
Expensive though. And in short supply due to limited production. So you pay a lot of money to get a small decant and if you like if, you'll have to...
If I lived near this I would DEFINITELY go and ditch my wife for the evening if that's what it required lol.
Sounds like it would be a fun experience for a fraghead. Too bad I like in the middle...
There is no "best miss" it's just a good discussion for message boards. There are about 5-7 who I consider brilliant and I'm sure more
Hard to say who is best - but he is one of them! Brilliant scents INCLUDING le male.
It's low priority for them. It will eventually go to dior homme stores at some point.
Aventus and MI go well together too
Thanks for posting this! Love these types of posts. I did similar and made the rounds all over Vegas to the perfume shops. Hope to do same in NYC, London and Paris in future.
I'm not trying to be snarky but Why not just try it bro.
Sometimes I experiment after evening shower to see how scents mix. If I don't like it I won't wear it in public.
You're welcome my friend!
I like this. It is important where you are in the food chain as far as how you dress and smell and look.
JUST BOUGHT IT AT MACYS.
It's really good. Has a mandarin thing going on that I like.
The cat piss smell is gone.
I prefer this to the old Michael Kors from 10 years ago. That one is very...
Versace pour homme gets a lot of love here
Dior homme can be hit or miss but favorable to my lady friend and other women I work with
Aventus for nights
Ysl nuit for nights
I've tried both.
The old one was too masculine and almost powerhouse but with spices.
The new one smelled better in style for me but did have a component that like cat urine (pre reformation)...
Not your top 5 favorite, not your most worn....but the 5 you respect the most as scents.
I know other threads are like this but here's mine:
In no particular order
Vintage Dior Homme EDT...
It's a good one. Got an instant compliment wearing in the first time.
Pineapple with a little hint of smoke, like the kind of batch of Aventus I favor.
Thank you SportsFan!
Dior Homme is my fave. I am a snob and prefer the more powdery iris-y vintage but realize that's gonna go away when I run out.
The new stuff is good too.
Dior Homme EDT
Those three will do. If I had to add two more:
Dior Homme Eau
I wear Dior Homme all the time - have NEVER been told I smell feminine and in fact have gotten many compliments.
In fact, have gotten compliments from the women in my life (including wife)...
a lot of sarcasm and negativity and snobbery on this board. it needs to stop
Thank you for sharing this story. Sounds like a great experience.
A perfume legend meets a basenotes legend!
Love MR but not universal appeal - some hate it.
poAL is a masterpiece but not mainstream. Very strong. Difficult to wear in casual setting or everyday.
Geranium is a nice classy work scent...
Very good scent maybe the best bond. Lots of compliments. Have to like green opening to enjoy this. Evolves nicely. I don't wear it as much as I should.
Love it when I'm in the mood for it.
When you don't want to smell exotic and unique but rather just want to smell good, pleasant, and low key...AHS hits the spot for me. Wore it today for first...
Yes. Caps are magnetic
eBay sucks. Avoid it
I did this today with Dior Homme EDT. Don't know if it made a diff to be honest.
LOL I did the same thing as soon as I bought it - peel that sticker off!
I like GOI! Much better than non-I.
It's fantastic. Someone on here (herbert?) recommended it on one of the layering threads and it works really well. It lightens up Aventus, which is good for example when I go to work and don't want...
Not sure if this counts as a compliment. The lady friend said "you smell good...but it's really strong....it's not Aventus is it?" Lol. She likes aventus but feels aventus overpowers the house.
Both but would go with vintage DH over ANY other fragrance!
good point tmoran.
As an american, I laughed hard at this and agree! lol
Lol yarn love the pic! Two guys look like Dana White and the guy on the left doesn't ;)
Keyboard warriors who will wear whatever they want whenever they want but afraid to post a real pic ;)
Haha jk. I'm not posting a pic but won't post a fake one either.
That's why I respect...
Add MPG ambre precioux to the list!
At work not even 2 minutes and got a compliment on Bond Scent of Peace for Him (2 sprays). First time wearing this since I bought it this wknd and already a winner!
"Wow someone smells really...
Just bought it today. Wearing tonight for myself and enjoying. Plan on wearing it it to work tomorrow.
Is this a 2 sprays only type of scent?
Just bought this today. Smells nice. I think it will be good for work.
Well I'll be damned. This afternoon when I tested at store then came to this thread, I said it was nothing like...
GIT and Dior Homme Eau
Swiss army classic
Another one for Black Orchid
I smelled it at the Michael Kors store at the Venetian Palazzo in Vegas. Thought it smelled good, far from rancid, but just wasn't my cup of tea so I didn't purchase.
Dior Homme (vintage)
Back to Black
Lanvin Arpege (mens)
Where did you buy it from? eBay or Hermes boutique makes a big difference whether you even have legit juice.
Lol I don't mean to slag on d&s but those reviews were rather worthless to me ;)
I'm glad I wasn't the only one.
I liked that one guy who was monkey puddle or monkey bars I can't tber
For example, I didn't always agree with petruccijc's tastes but I really liked his posts.
Liked DULLAHs input a lot.
Where are they know?
So many good posts who have moved on - where did they...
I've turned the corner on this bad boy. I thought it was ok-good when I bought it, now I really like it. Very strong scent when sprayed in a good distinctive way (not strong as in sillage).
I really like this fahrenheit13 fella. Good entertaining threads!
lol at people saying its cruel to the dog but you guys do 12 sprays of black aoud with no concern for your fellow human beings who have to ingest that!
Swiss army classic got me a compliment.
I know this stuff smells kinda generic masculine almost like a deodorant, but for it's genre it smells really good and has an underlying sweetness to it...
I love threads like this!!!!
Reminds me of the cologne for newborn baby thread. An instant classic.
I love it! That's the exact feeling that TDH parfum gives me.
Claus recommended DHI + MIP EDP and it smells amazing.
Someone else (herbert?) on here recommended MI + Aventus and that too smells good.
Those are the only layerings that I've found to be...
Just got complimented by a beautiful woman on New Haarlem (2 sprays).
I love the cooler weather bein back so my gourmands can be work again!
I am wearing Terre de Hermes Parfum again today (2 sprays) to work and damn do I feel good wearing this! It's strong enough that I can actually smell it, it smells AMAZING, and it makes me feel...
2 shots of aventus at work makes me nervous. I may have to try that though.
I do agree that I did one shot of aventus and i wonder if anyone even smelled it at work.
It is probably 2O01 or 2001 or something like that. The very first number is the year of production.
Yours is January 2012.
Try this and you'll see:
The bottle of...
Agree with this.
Same can be said for DH.
How many sprays? I did one spray from a decant (smaller than the creed bottle spray) under my shirt and tie but I don't think anyone smelled it.
Im trying to find a balance between too little and...
Very well said.
Sometimes Egoiste smells dated to me but is incredible.
Aventus can't be worn by me everyday.
Nuit is too much a night scent imo
Sculpture is too loud
Fierce by default even tho it's not the best of four it's prob the best candidate for signature...
How many sprays? I've done two-three but wonder if that's not enough.
Description in title is about right. Awful scent IMO. Dated.
I have Andy Warhol and am getting a decant of Plum Japonais within this week. Will update with impressions.
I sampled Plum last weekend and I was very impressed. Maybe the aura of TF...
Hednic is a legend on here and a class act.
I really want DHP to show up in the US. When I was in Vegas I ask the SA at the Dior Boutique in Venetian if there's any change it's coming to the US. ...
Good post Trebor.
But to this point - we can all choose to change the oil in our car ourselves - but I choose not to out of time/laziness. I don't want to deal with buying everclear alcohol and...
I will make no judgements and I neither endorse nor mock any of these. Just find it interesting. I am not the seller in any of these. Posted for sake of discussion.
Wow good to know. I didn't go to the Cosmo.
I was hoping the apothecary at Wynn would have more high end niche. They had Penhaligons but i would have thought a high end casino like Wynn would be...
Beauty Encounter has a TDH parfum tester for $80 for 2.5 oz and a non-tester for $88. I have used this site with success - all quality products. I don't much other experience with the other sites.
Such a badass looking bottle isn't it
I have not obtained DH Parfum since I live in the US and I generally don't participate in splits and whatnot. Will either wait until Dior Boutiques in US or Canada have it (and can mail to me...
When I got the decant from Surrender to Chance, they have a little blurb on there saying it looks like the bad batches are 2010 and everything since then is about the same. I would agree with that...
One more observation - the Shalimar Souffle is good. I didn't buy the scent - but I think it is worth trying. Smells more like Parfum Initial L'eau rather than Shalimar. Has a soapy vibe. Trends...
DHE has gotten me a lot of compliments along with vintage DH. Since the latter is no longer in production in vintage form, I would say DHE is king of compliments on this line.
DHI feels out of...
Dior Homme line is hands down by favorite line.
DH is my favorite scent of all time (vintage of course).
DHI and DHE are EXCELLENT.
I'm not a huge fan of DHC new (don't have DHC old) or DHS...
My suggestion is to just go to a Nieman Marcus if there are ones near you and literally look at the bottles themselves to get the batch you want. Of course they may not have 2011s in the store, but...
I would like this in male fragrance discussion if possible since it is relevant to this and will prob get most views here rather than saddled in some not well read forum.
Went to Vegas for work...
Creed Aventus. One spray to chest while wearing a t-shirt.
Co-worker beautiful lady friend complimented me.
This is my first day wearing a new 2013 batch.
I am not an Aventus shill. I am...
Vintage Dior Homme EDT
Green Irish Tweed
Very well said.
I wasn't too impressed with Vanille 44 so no IMO.
I really liked Neroli 36 and bought it last week at. Barney's (for $160 for 50 ml iirc).
Upper chest and lower back is one of my strategies. If it's a strong scent, low back is favorable to back of neck. Plus more sweat at low back so may project more.
I'm too lazy to make any perfume myself no matter how simple it is to do. I enjoy this hobby but not that much lol.
DH vintage is best.
This was 4-5 hours in. Did one spray to chest and one spray to lower back so only total of two. But I was wearing light clothing (hospital scrubs) so it projected more than on days I wear a...
Got a compliment on TDH today :)
Unsolicited female compliment on TDH parfum by an older co worker today. Bought it this weekend and this is the first time I'm wearing it.
This stuff smells amazing!!!!!
Nowadays most people want aquatic or clean or green. Anything outside that norm is going to be considered weird even if it smells good. That's an important point folks.
Guy who wears trendy LA...
How many sprays do you recommend?
