No I have not. But Dzongha is on my list to try.
While I know these two share no notes and are classified differently, my first impression of Timbuktu was that it reminded me of Egoiste.
I am just getting a similar vibe, or aura of Egoiste. I am not saying they smell the same. However I do feel they are in the same "ballpark"
WOW! I am going to have to do some serious homework. I am very much taking this seriously as my inability to smell.
I am baffled by the responses of " no similarities at all". Either I need to do...
Evidently in the other thread I started I am bat shit crazy and can't smell wine from vinegar.
All kidding aside I stand by my nose.
Thank you for your advice. Maybe I just need nasal counseling or something. I hope a padded room is not on the horizon. I. We'd to do a side by side testing but my initial reaction was a very similar...
Funny I didn't see your post when I started my thread, but I think L'Artisan Timbuktu is pretty similar vibe. Actually a similar fragrance.
It seems redundant to have both. But I will keep both and...
I just blind bought Timbuktu. I know, I know. Blind buying =😱
But the reviews, note breakdown and price on fragrancenet with 25% off I couldn't help myself.
I have been in n a Vetiver kick/hunt...
Le Vetiver Carven edp
I like it but seems light. Becomes a skin scent way too quickly. However it's still present and very nice at 10 hours
Forgot Gucci ph II and Rive Gauche. 2 very unique frags. Both kinda out in left field for designer frags
I will second bleu d'issey. Also Oscar for men and feragamo pour homme.
Pretty unique in the designer world. Also bvlgari ph soir
Bel Ami Vetiver
Terre d Hermes edt
Already own Terre edp, wanted to try edt maybe for layering or just versatility
Bvlgari PH Soir is definitely suitable for night. Very sophisticated
You mentioned you sampled these on paper. You might change your mind about some of them if you actually gave them all a chance with a full wearing. Or at least a spray on your wrist and see how it...
One surprisingly not mentioned is Dolce & Gabanna PH. Very nice smooth tobacco note.
Also enjoy Havanna, & Avant Garde.
Vermeil for men is a good one to add to your list.
Also Oscar for men is a good one. Both of these can be found less than $20
This thread seems to be a reformulation.
Not at all like I remember it.
Where can I find the original?
+1 for Arran Aromatics Bay Citrus. I wouldn't call it a bay rum fragrance, but the bay leaf note is very prominent. It has pretty good longevity 6-8 hrs.
My apologies for being a bit of a smart ass. Let's not get into name calling. Just pointing out there are 82 reviews in BN directory 77 are positive that is a good place to start if you want to see...
I don't think many people in this community have tried this one. Maybe you should and post your thoughts.
Kidding. This is not a very obscure fragrance I'm sure you could find out something with a...
Tiffany for Men
If you want to smell good get either they are both fantastic. If you want to smell like other 15 year olds get something from AF. Or get ADG. Then you will fit into your age group quite nice.
- Where the heck is the vanilla? Is this like a Le Labo sort of thing, naming something with vanilla that actually doesn't smell like vanilla?
- The incense, which I could smell, smelled very...
HiM is easy to wear and a big crowd pleaser
Not to be crude, but if you pass gas in your pants can people smell it? You probably have 2 layers on. The answer is probably yes.
I know it depends on the strength of the scent and weather you are...
I think it has an old lady smell. IMHO
I'm going outside the list. Antonio Banderas Seduction In Black would be a good one.
I received 2 compliments tonight while wearing this. And it won't hurt your wallet.
Try Juliette Has A Gun line. Most of their scents are centered around rose or has rose I. The notes.
Very affordable and nicely packaged sampler set.
Vermeil Homme. Look no further for beautiful, affordable tobacco
Bvlgari PH Soir works well for me on wet days.
I never can decide on 3 lol. I just returned from Mexico and took along about 10- 12 samples and decants.
Even that was tough to narrow down.
I saw a lot of gift sets rolled in at Marshalls. Nothing to note except maybe KC Signature.
Also saw Issey Sport, but at $40 for 1.6 oz, cmon. They really have priced out of the discount market...
I also enjoy Polo Red. It's a nice fragrance. It was a gift to me and I wear it as a casual scent to run errands or even for work.
Sometimes the BN crowd is very anti "nice" scents. I don't know if...
Pinaud Bay Rum
What batch # was it? Could have been a bad batch
I love it! A little short lived but for 4-6 hours it's a wonderful scent. I hope you enjoy.
I had a sample of this recently. Thought it was nice, but I too felt like after an hour or 2 it was very much a skin scent and not a projection monster. My wife agreed at the 3 hour mark she could...
Very nice caramel cookie
Sorry, I meant Dolcelisir,
Plus Lalique PH
Try gorilla tape or duct tape.
But decanting is probably the way to go. There may be some scientific explanation of adhesive chemicals used in tape that might leach into the fragrance causing some...
I agree with no box. Takes too much room and not as pleasing to look at. Mine stay in a walk-in closet with light off for 23.75 hours a day so literally no light.
I liked Ambre Nu
Also liked Mistral Patchouli
and the Rose
But found these to be too much of skin scents.
Didn't care for the Gold Leather or Silver Iris
I bought a gift set of NR last year 1.7 oz edt with shampoo.
I was able to smell due to the packaging. I think I went back and forth for a week and sampled it once before finally buying it.
Lanvin L'Homme Sport
Oscar by Oscar de la Renta
Chopard Noble Cedar
These are some of my favorite fresh scents
Thanks for the replies. Next time I try my Spicebomb sample, I will do a side by side with La Nuit.
First time I wore SB, I thought there was a very similar vibe. But so far I am digging SB.
Does anyone else find these 2 to be Similar enough that owning both would be redundant?
I own YSL La Nuit and have been working through a sample of Spicebomb.
And while I like it very much, I find...
Versace The Dreamer
I don't know if it's considered a gourmand
As a fellow bartender, I tip my hat to you sir. I usually spray my wrists so that when I reach across the bar or hand them a drink someone may get a whiff of my SOTD. Sometimes it works and a...
Just curious where you are getting rose in CarvenHomme? I don't get any rose in this one nor is it listed as a note.
Aside from some already mentioned, I am surprised nobody has listed Dolce & Gabbana Pour Homme.
To me this has a very nice pepper note.
This is a go to spring/ summer/fall scent for me. Very enjoyable. A little linear, yes, but still complex. I think for $20 one could do a lot worse.
Ditto, + 1
Not sure if this is the right place to post, but this aftershave is a very close match to GPH II.
Anyone looking to amp up projection or just find a nice A/S to accompany GPH II, this fits the...
Not sure where the naughty words were. And besides we are all grown ups. As long as someone is not swearing at somebody else, or you are letting your children read this, where is the harm. Lighten up.
[QUOTE=tdwctdwc;3240066]Lanvin sport without a doubt.
Ed Hardy Skulls and Roses comes to mind.
That sounds strange
That was awesome. Top 10 Top 10. Hilarious stuff
Glad I just picked up a bottle of edt last week 3.4 oz tester for $23 shipped.
Yeah I sampled this at a discount store, there was an open box, and I left the store within 10 minutes and smelled my arm in the car. It was barely detectable. No place in my wardrobe for a fleeting...
Lomani Black Intense. This one wowed me. For $20 this could easily cost $120.
Cedar and Incense. Warm yet fresh. I can see this being a year round staple. I don't care what anyone compares this to...
She tolerates. Rolls her eyes a lot. But doesn't really say anything.
She never understands refreshing a fragrance or wearing something before bed.
Nor does she appreciate overspraying.
Bvlgari PH Soir
+1 Gucci PH II
Most used favorites recently
Lomani AB Silver
Bvlgari PH Extreme
Lomani Black Intense
Midnight in Paris would be a good one
Ck One Shock
Try LIDG more cacao than LIDGE. Also easier to find.
HM is nice citrus and chocolate.
Emporio Armani Diamonds has a nice cocoa scent.
Midnight in Paris edt

Yea it is pretty powerful after the initial spray. But it does settle down nicely as you have found.
You definately don't need to overspray with this, as it lasts and projects.
Thanks for your...
I've never had a fragrance give me a headache. Usually it's stress or sinus.
Rochas is a very nice gourmand frag. Well worth trying.
You like vanilla and want affordable, try Altamir by Ted...
These do not work as 'antiperspirants' but as a deodorant. They don't block the perspiration from coming through, you still sweat, they kill the bacteria from causing the sweat to create odor...I...
I just keep picturing Jerry Seinfeld, button down, jeans and sneakers.
Not the best look.
I wear casual loafers or driving mocs. Sometimes Chuck Taylor's.
When the weather gets cold it's boots
I have had good luck with Crystal. It's like an alum stick. No odor after 12 hours even when working outside.
I keep mine on a shelf in walk in closet ( we have his and hers, so it is MY closet).
Door stays closed,light off. I keep the floor vent open in summer and closed in winter.
I have a digital...
Chanel Allure Sport Extreme.
It just smells good to me. Also garners many compliments.
Spray your wrists or forearms. Inner elbow works well too. Maybe try back of your neck.
Anywhere where it won't be directly wafting up to your nose and overwhelming your smell.
I like tops of...
Somebody find an answer... I am dying to know.
I would think Old Spice, Aramis, Polo, Cool Water, and Curve would be a good top 5 guess.
Maybe it was a 1 Million air freshener hanging from his review mirror.
I bought a tester in 2013. I have no idea when it was made.
I spray one to the chest and one each side of neck. Put undershirt on and respray same spots 5 minutes later.
This is pretty standard...
I wore LW yesterday to work. I work in a restaurant so food begins to be your scent. But 6 sprays and 8 hours later my wife hugged me when I got home and said "you smell nice"
This post was more about a small perfume house with a lovely vetiver fragrance for, I believe $16.
Not a your favorite vetiver thread.
But thanks for the info
Fruity tobacco that maintains a fresh feel. It becomes a little woody with sandalwood and musk while maintaining a fresh fruity vibe. Excellent longevity. It just seems like a well blended fragrance...
Feeling Man by Jil Sander. I had a mini of this and scored a 1.7 bottle on ebay for a decent price. I love this fragrance
I have the New Spice edt. It is nuclear longevity and projection. Gourmand with a caramel sweetness. Very nice in cold.
I have samples of refined, aspect, and arimarse. None seemed to have lasting...
I have not tried GV so I have no reference. I would call it smoky yet bright.
Encre Noir with a little sweetness added to it from neroli
I tried Issey at a duty free shop once. And while not vile, I did go to the bathroom and scrub it off after about 10 minutes.
I went back to spray something else for my 6 hour plane ride.
Wait a minute... Uh, what. I don't get it. Never mind. I'm confused
[QUOTE=dmckean44;3213714]I ordered a bottle earlier this morning. I figured I'll give it a try since it looks like a good value.[/
I hope you enjoy. Thank you for giving it a shot.
You are welcome. I know I enjoy wearing this frag. I am surprised at the limited responses for this post.
I hope somebody checks it out so the word can spread. The owner, Wendy, is fantastic. Great...
I have a sample of 12. I thought I would let my wife try it but she is not so enthusiastic about fragrance.
I thought I would gift in a trade someday or whatever. Now you have piqued my interest.
I though 5 used to be 6. Now 6 is 5. Maybe I'm wrong.
I have #s 5,7,11 &14. I love all of them. I am always tempted to buy 4 just to complete the set, but consensus reviews are it has serious...
Altamir by Ted Lapidus
Cereus 14. Very good longevity but not good projection. Boozy scent
Lanvin Arpege discontinued but still obtainable
I enjoy Havana but don't seem to reach for it often. It is a nice summer night fragrance, a bit heavy, but does give you the feeling of sitting in an open air bar with 85 degree temperature sipping...
I urge you to try a fragrance from Saint Charles Shave. A lovely vetiver called Very V.
You can order a sample for a few bucks or take the plunge and spend less than $30 for a full bottle.
Azzaro PH. I don't get the love for this.
I have no problem with longevity, 6-8 hrs with 4-6 sprays. It works very well in summer and autumn.
I find it to be similar to Oscar de la Renta for men. This has more depth and not as linear as...
How similar is Intense Black to Quorum Silver? I have QS and I read some thoughts that it was similar.
If IB is a cedar bomb I may pass on it.
I am interested in original AB Spirit. However if...
Lomani Silver Spirit
Both bottles are very wearable in summer. Versatile for year round.
You will have change in your pocket from your $50
