Hey I have Frapin 1697 Absolu de Parfum with cap and box 90-95% full. Would you be interested in doing a 5 O'Clock Au Gingembre + cash swap?
1) You are about to go on your first date with a beautiful woman at a fancy restaurant.
- Guerlain SDV
2) You get invited over to the same woman's house for the first time for a "quiet night in"
Would this be accurate?
Masculinity: TV, NH, AN, SDV
Longevity/Projection:TV, AN, NH, SDV
"Sexiness"/Date scent: SDV, NH, AN, TV
i tried NH, SDV, and TV and the only one I bought was NH precisely because of "universal appeal"
-SDV: loveeee it. boozy, sensual vanillia. however leaned towards the feminine side
-TV: did not get...
Hi, can you guys rank these four fragrances in Masculinity, Longevity/Projection, "Sexiness"/Date scent
New Haarlem is the closest to my "holy grail" fragrance. Just trying to see if there's...
i don't mind the older juice.. but wow, i didn't realize i was in such a minority in not liking the blue bottle
How does the longevity/projection compare to the Private Blend??
Where did you buy the brown bottle of Neroli Portofino!?! I've been looking for one everywhere lol
the brown one just looks more classy imo :P
I don't like how the new turquoise bottle looks. Do they still carry the brown ones or have they been discontinued??
@Ivory88: Nope, not the refill bottles but the tester bottles which look exactly the same as the original bottles but just come in a tester box instead of the fancy wooden ones.
i think they only sell regular bottles + box and not tester bottles..
Love love love Tonka Imperiale. BUT it smells too feminine imo. But if you don't think so, totally recommend this one.
Does anyone else get an air freshener vibe out of GIT? Maybe it was...
I've noticed By Kilian testers available for swap/sale on forums, but can't seem to find any online. I'm particularly interested in Straight to Heaven.
Cool thanks :) It's be nice if someone can slide in Tom Ford Extreme and Japon Noir in that list
I prefer it if it doesn't, because I associate it with that food/object rather than a "cologne".
but i still love new haarlem, sdv, and ambre narguille regardless :P
I would say DHI if you are younger and TV for 30s+
TdH EDT. One of my favorite designer fragrances. MiP is too powdery, and not really versatile - love the bottle though. Really like Chanel EB, but doesn't last or project at all
Why increase the price of an already overpriced fragrance!! :sad:
+1. You can get it is the travel size set ~2oz for a reasonable price
Hahaha nice Top 5 list mesaboogie :) Check out this video, I think you will get a kick out of it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o7mQrF1RjQ8
Hi can you guys rank the following fragrances in these areas?
Tobacco Vanille, Tuscan Leather, Noir de Noir, Amber Absolute, Japon Noir, Tom Ford Extreme
1) Masculine 2) Projection/Longevity 3)...
I used three sprays btw. Thought it might be an overkill, but my friends can't smell it unless they have their nose on my arm
Am I in the minority if it dies down to a skin scent after 3 hours or so? I was under the impression that it had beastly longevity and projection :/
Oh, and in general is there a way to get to...
i haven't tried it either, but thats what i'm reading on basenotes/fragrantica. strange.. i would think the woods would make it more masculine than SDV
i'm pretty sure as long as the seller has a lot of positive feedback, it is safe
Which of the three would you recommend the most of the Mona di Orio, Hermes, and Montale? Thanks :)
Would Montale Boise Vanille be good as well? Can anyone compare it to SDV?
Will do, thanks for your help :)
I think I might even blind buy the Mona di Orio. Did you smell Montale Boise Vanille by any chance? How does it compare?
Les Nombres d'Or Vanille by Mona di Orio sounds amazing! I will definitely check this one out. Is the vanilla note prominent? (i love vanilla haha).
i used to love dhi, but i can't stand the iris note anymore and lidge is more cocoa than vanilla, and has a powderyness i dislike.
I love SDV. I am looking for something similarly complex, but more masculine (more woods?), and perhaps more darker and less sweet.
-notes I don't like: oud, leather,...
i heard that it was not being discontinued, but they are now only selling it in chanel boutiques
I know its unisex, but if you had to choose would you categorize it leaning towards the masculine side or the feminine side?
took a 30 min trip to sniff it today. absolutely hated it... dislike it more than tobacco vanille. but bought SDV. smells like boozy creme brulee! easily top 3 for me
Or does it lean towards the mature/old fashioned side?
And based on my preferences, do you think I will like it? I have a swap offer, and can't go out and smell it and it would take too long to...
Thanks for all the suggestions! I'll find and sniff what I can haha
I'm not sacrificing my hobby for her and changing up my collection. I will continue to wear what I like. Though, if she really...
Neil4Speed: hahaha mayhaps...
ooh one more thing, i have to be able to smell it! (so designer/popular niche brand found in department stores) I tried blind buying a few...but didn't work out too...
i would list the fragrances she disliked but... way too many..
here are a few:
-dior homme intense (sigh...i jokingly said we should break up after she cringed her nose after smelling it haha)...
After disliking all my fragrances (she 'didn't mind' Terre d'Hermes though)... and dozens of fragrances at the fragrance counter, the only fragrance my girlfriend liked was GIT. But she said it...
Hope this helps a little bit.
"Thank you for contacting Dior Beauty.

fragrance development as well as making sure that...
Thanks guys. It was interesting to know :P
(and my name isn't Alanis)
ahh; didnt think to use the search engine for this one...lol haha my bad veterans
the male fragrance discussion has WAY more posts than the female fragrance discussion?
isn't the common perception that women care more about perfumes than men? (and why do women have more...
Besides the Dior boutique, the only other place I've seen it in-store was Sephora (only had DH and DH Sport, no Intense)
Thanks guys I appreciate it!!
Which do you prefer for romantic occasions?
Man...I was hoping it wasn't true...thanks for the link...gonna go home and cry now..
Thanks for the recommendations!
I would like to add a couple more criteria though,
-Not sweet nor floral
-Under $100 :P (my fragrance addiction may kill me if I don't stick to this haha)
First fragrance that blew me away...dior homme intense. I read that it was getting reformulated around september, but I can't find a link/article about it. Is this rumor true? Are they completely...
Thanks! I've been lurking on basenotes for awhile, and you seem to give awesome recommendations petruccijc - I'll be sure to check New West out.
Are there any other colognes with a similar strong dark cherry / plum / date fruit (whatever that note is to your nose - to me it's dark cherry) as John Varvatos Classic that lasts longer?? While I...
I've been looking (sniffing) all over for a fresh fragrance that meets the following criteria but can't find any. Please help me out!
-No citrus / fruit
-A cold winter air type smell...
