Lol.... I know they will probably think you have some sort of OCD disorder but it's the only way I can think in trying to get a good batch. As I have a bottle from 2009 I have had no motivation to...
I love Millesime Imperial, it's one of my top favourites. Though batch variations are a curse and a bit of a gamble. You could try a few out in different stores taking note of the year date within...
If I had a Ferrari I would buy a bottle just to put on the dashboard to look good when using it.lol
Noir de Noir and then Potion Royal black for me. With Oud Ispahan the rose part is nice but the drydown smells like the basenotes of Leather Oud. Not something I appreciated when testing this as I...
Congrats on your purchase, a very nice fragrance which reminds me of 24 by Scentstory.
Juice bar, I never knew they existed. I'm so out of touch with this fast paced world. lol
Well it all depends if scientists can prove certain chemicals used in fragrances are carcinogenic and neurotoxic. The ones that are the most dangerous I guess are the ones the IFRA have banned.
I think this one is quite special though quite old school. It's a spicy tobacco scent that has that bay rum accord within it's structure. And this is what raises it above other tobacco fragrances.
It's ok though not my cup of tea,
Nah for me it would be Guerlains Songe d'un Bois d'ete.
A light chocolate vanilla and lavender fragrance with a light dusting of coffee. I find it to be lovely and quite charming especially in the cold weather. I think it's success is down to it been...
One of the best introductions to Oud imo is Tom Fords Oud Wood.
I like it but it just gets too sweet for my taste in the drydown.
That's not as easy to answer as you may think as there are hundreds that are very nice. My advice would be to test as many as you can to see what stands out to yourself as the nicest. As what I or...
I could never wear a fragrance I hate no matter how many women liked it.
I got a lot of negative feedback when I used to own Antaeus. I even had a stranger on the bus open the window holding his nose above my head. lol
They do look cheap and a obvious exercise in cost cutting. You expect each Guerlain box for every fragrance to have individual flair. Disappointing!
It may seem like that going into a store and seeing all those Sandalwood fragrances on sale. But Sandalwood fragrances have been around decades before the Oud craze here in the West. Which started...
I got nearly a 9000 plus boost from Uncle Grant. I wonder if it has anything to do with post's be archived in the Huddler section of the forum. I'm sure I remember a lot of posts were taken away...
I have the intense version and it smells very plush and classy with a nice creamy lemon and orange ambery soft spice opening. Throughout it's long life you can pick up cloves, cinnamon and vetiver...
A good informative post OP, will have to come back to this thread as a reference. Well done!
Derby is in another Galaxy compared to Quorum which I find to be a very oppressive and suffocating fragrance.
A acquired taste as the civet does not smell like conventional civet but more like musty mothballs.lol
The Third Man.
Vintage first formulation:
I've always been curious about solid fragrances but just never got around to trying them. Will have to buy one and see what I think. They are rarely mentioned on basenotes that they are almost a...
My favourite Patchouli scents are Givenchy Gentleman and Murdocks Patchouli.
Richard James Savile Row Edt
Armani Eau Pour Homme
lol.... We basenoters could have helped him out in a group co- ordinated attack with walkie talkies. We could all surround the DHL warehouse, "this is red team calling in", "this is blue team calling...
Your a brave man doing that to your bottle. I had the same thought but only briefly, after spending a lot of money on that beautiful bottle it seemed a crime to destroy it and put the scent in a...
+1.... Works really well in humid weather, it opens up the citrus aspect more.
+1.... Could not say it better than this. lol
For me Guerlains Neroli Outrenoir is the best release of 2016.
Top 5 most warn this year is:
Guerlain Neroli Outrenoir
Guerlain Habit Rouge L Eau
Murdock Black Tea
C&E Extract Of Mysore Sandalwood (Vintage)
Creeds Original Vetiver
The recent one is a poor shadow of the vintage, anything before 2000 is the best if searching for vintage. Luckily vintage bottles are easy to come by on ebay.

I like SMW for the first few hours and then it starts to get on my nerves. It has this unyielding never changing intensity on my skin which loses it's welcome as time progresses. The Gucci is always...
I've had periods of getting bored with fragrances, I just take a break for a while and then I find my interest renewed.
Congrats, it's a good fragrance perfect for the Winter months.
+1..... I hate bureaucracy but holding your fragrances for ransom is a disgrace. I think FragX should take ownership of the problem and should have known about these issues before employing a carrier...
Congrat's on getting a very good scent at such a good affordable price.
Thanks, the vintage edt as it's more richer than the current one which feels slightly watered down in comparison. To me the vintage edt is the perfect formulation of Heritage. When you use the...
It's usually when you end up testing a fragrance that is often overlooked or just not popular and find it quite excellent. Then you start asking yourself why this scent does not get any attention....
It does certainly influence a potential blind buy but it's only a guide. You really need to know your own tastes and be familiar with the notes in a fragrance to change the probability to a...
+1... A honey and patchouli powerhouse that is very affordable.
I would rather be over the moon with one great fragrance than a half a dozen that are just good.
Hope and expectation is a lot like this Superman Meme.lol
Another one for Lemale, I remember having a bottle in 2003.
Creed Royal Mayfair reminds me of Funeral Homes
Many years ago I worked in a office that dealt with funeral homes and had to visit one on some management empathy initiative. When I smell Royal...
Kalemat by Arabian Oud smells just like it though I don't know it's price. And it contains no Oud.
