Female fragrances don't exist.
[QUOTE=caferacer;3225973Since the majority of us have misunderstood your post, perhaps it's your description of the problem (and not our collective reading comprehension skills) that's lacking/QUOTE]...
Please actually read my post. I can't believe so many people have commented without actually reading the post. Frustrating.
Could a mod please edit the title to make it clear that this is NOT a...
Years. There's really NO way to fix this? That's pretty frightening.
I think you all misunderstand (not sure how) That isn't the issue. I do that with all my TM's anyway (including this bottle). Something has gone wrong with the mechanism. It's not giving a mist -...
--Please note, NOT an issue about cutting the rubber button away--
My Pure Coffee sprayer has stopped creating a "spray" of the juice. Instead, it's now just chucking out what I can only describe...
Most I've ever paid is £200. For Brooklyn.
Enjoy most of his fragrances. His stand out for me is Unknown Pleasures.
Why would anybody in the UK buy Creeds at retail?! Allbeauty baby!
Annoyingly (and perhaps somewhat predictably) no mention of it whatsoever on TM's UK site. Looks like international customers will be kept waiting by TM. Again...
Invasion Barbare smells like an old peoples home.
The obsession with YouTube reviewers on here is hilarious. Rest assured, you give us all a good laugh.
I'd rather they changed the performance.
He's a pretty stylish & creative guy. Plus it's GdG. Will be going out of my way to give it a go.
Lol at the "Oh. Celeb fragrance. I'll give it a miss" crowd. Tragic.
If you're not attracted to someone, it's not going to matter a damn what they smell like. Pretty basic stuff really.
Started DE shaving this week. I will NEVER EVER go back to cartridge razors. DE shaving is cheaper, better for your skin, gives better results. The benefits are endless. Still learning, but i'm a...
Absolutely everywhere where I live. Made it unwearable. About to sell my bottle.
Belongs in the 80's.
What is women's perfume?
Fragrance is my hobby. That's it. It'll never come before the countless more important things in life.
I almost never wear cologne. I wear a fragrance every day. Because I want to.
To significantly increase the high end over high street ratio of my collection.
Try YouTube... :D
Another for Wall Street.
5) Bang by Marc Jacobs (no, really)
3) Oud Wood
2) Straight to Heaven
Love Epic (one of my favourite fragrances of all time), HATE Musc Rav. Find no similarity.
Was just coming back to say this. Olfactory fatigue is a major cause of people reapplying when they don't actually need to. Not smelling something after two hours is the majority of the time going to...
The whole "I spent loads of £££ on a fragrance, so it should be crazy powerful and last for 3 days" thing makes absolutely zero sense. There are times and occasions when a subtler fragrance is called...
What's a good niche/high end replacement? Anybody?...
Brad is a legend. How very dare you!
I promise nothing. I may well be too hammered to remember. You'll all be on board the drunk review hype train before you know it.
Yep. Definitely ME that's looking daft here!:laugh:
Anywho, I've a video to shoot - off to get hammered! Enjoy carrying on getting your knickers in a twist over nothing! An absolutely legendary...
A hundred and twenty three posts and counting. Brilliant.
Why am I not "unbiased"? I participate in both mediums & have done for years. Anywho... [
We're all unprepared drunks. Every single last one of us. It's the future.
Been there, done that. Twerking is so very 2012 in the community i'm afraid.
Within this thread is the very best, and very worst of Basenotes. Absolutely hilarious. I've always considered myself to have a foot in both "camps". All this "You suck!" "No, YOU suck!" business is...
Anything with "David Beckham" written on the bottle, and/or packaging.
Some of the best presentation around. A terrible pity that not many of his gorgeous bottles are worth owning. I have StH, I want B2B, and then I may be done with Kilian.
I like it. I think it's VERY versatile. But I don't get the super duper high praise. It's a little blah & boring to me. Nothing that blows my brains out. An easy reach when you don't know what to...
No time for the man. Or anybody else who plants bombs in public places & massacres innocent members of the public. Whatever the reasoning behind it.
Boss Bottled all day long. L'homme lasts about 4 seconds on my skin, and is slightly stronger than water.
It's not just you.
I've always been careful to never call myself a "reviewer". I'm just a bloke with an opinion.
I prefer to say "high street" and "high end". I think that more closely resembles what most people mean.
Never been a fan of the terms "niche" or "designer" for many reasons. I don't think they're fit for purpose.
Not sure what the etiquette is on reviving old threads, but Bulgari Black. Sent to me by a Basenoter a couple of years ago when I was first starting out. In two minds about re-buying. Unique stuff,...
I buy my Creeds from Cheapsmells. Absolutely no need whatsoever to buy Creed at retail.
My samples are completely different to when I last updated my wardrobe, so I deleted them all last night & added the ones I have now - when i'd deleted all of them, it was saving I had five!! :grin:
If you smell a fragrance that you're familiar with on somebody else, you know what you're smelling. So it can't be THAT different. I think it's perception and brain trickery.
I completely understand and appreciate that this is an extremely minor thing given the enormity of the move, but I thought you may want me to point it out anyways - The "totals" in my wardrobe are...
The Huddler site was style over substance. I'd rather have a useful Basenotes than a fancy looking one. I think this looks better than original old Basenotes did anyway! It does the job.
Brilliant. MY WARDROBE!!! Happy. ;)
I don't think that was an option... :cheesy:
I'd choose absolutely anything over Kouros. Up to and including death by torture. :laugh:
I was in a Burger King a couple of months ago next to a woman who appeared to have taken a bath in TM Angel. Not nice. And I LOVE A*Men.
I'm in the "ask the Mrs" camp.
I own them both. They go in completely different directions.
Some people appear to have got out of bed on the wrong side today...
I swear by Cheapsmells. I bought my M.I from there - it's just as fleeting and weak as it should be.
Amouage Silver(ware). Always found it strange that America is the only country on Earth that doesn't "get" football. Their loss I suppose. They have to make do with rounders and rugby with...
I'd wear Who Cares by I'm Dead.
It's hype. Absolutely nothing next to Pure Havane or Pure Malt IMO. Not something i'd break your neck to get hold of.
I'd imagine so, but i'd personally rather they stayed away from summery stuff. It's just not "them".
In a job interview, you want them to remember them for you, not your smell.
Try AW & NR.
I'd say at least get to learn what you like, and probably more importantly, what you DON'T like if you're going to start blind buying things. I blind buy (although not quite as much as I used to)...
Al's Steet Scents episode with Andy Tauer comes to mind. (don't rub it in).
Spring = heavy focus on florals and outdoorsy, fresh fragrances. Summer is more citruses & fruits in general.
Erm... Nope. Plenty of negative (if that's the right word) reviews out there. The Fragrance Bro's Lumiere Noire video today for example.
Good lord, I would NOT blind buy this. Only Amouage that I cannot stand. Possibly the worst fragrance i've ever smelt. Maybe tied with Kouros.
Smells like the cheap soap & cheap air freshener you...
I much prefer Tobacco Vanille (just personal taste), but that doesn't mean you will.
Read through the reviews on Basenotes some time...

Or a message board....
Some people really can't see past their own noses.
Menthe Fraiche by a long way for me.
Anybody have a brick wall I could borrow?

Who cares about labels? They're people with opinions. Perfectly valid opinions. Just like everybody here. And they're perfectly...
Amber Absolute. Although i'm told Sahara Noir is very similar.
Man his last post was September. I hadn't even realised.
Back on subject - it's just a different medium, guys. Neither is "better". It's not "us & them". We all enjoy the same hobby. Some just...
It's just a different way of expressing opinions on fragrances. A bit like that Basenotes place...

As much as I enjoy being part of that community, it does bug me when reviewers refer to their subscribers as "fans". The fragrance is the star.
Different scents, but for the same crowd. I'd never touch either.
I bought mine from Scent and Sensibility a few months back. I was a little surprised that there was no signed card in there. I thought he personally signed them all?
Is this the one with the dipstick?
People come and people go. There are probably more people on YouTube making fragrance related videos now than ever before. Like this handsome chap... http://www.youtube.com/user/QWERTYOP80
Almost never happens these days, but I wore Dior Homme two days running a few weeks back.
See post 2... :thumbsup:

Also see post 2. :laugh:
Your sense of smell shuts off when you're asleep. That's why it's good to test the longevity of fragrances by applying them before you go to bed.
I have love & luck and Ed Hardy man. OK for casual use if i'm sitting around doing nothing all day.
I like Reflection for a spring night out scent. Yet to try Lyric though. Good projection by all accounts, so it may fit the bill well.
Fully agree with the comments above. YOUR opinion is...
I don't believe in "best" when it comes to fragrance, but my favourite is Epic.
