Givenchy Play Intense
Pure Coffee has the woodiest dry-down of the Muglers
It's really quite a pleasant woody scent. It's subtle but I get a nice fir balsam vibe from it.
Diesel Plus Plus
A*Men - preventative measure for reformulation

Went in on the Fragrance Bros split of Parfume de Marly's Herod.
It will be a blind buy but it sounds like the best parts of Tobacco Vanille
Five O 'Clock Gingembre and Je De Peau :thumbsup:
Yes, Borneo 1834 is exactly what your looking for IMO.
Get a sample for sure and you will be right on track :smiley:
Awesome, awesome dry down :coolold:
Cusson's Imperial Leather
She likes roses so I thought about Black Aoud but its hot here today so I wanted something to be a little lighter and more comfortable so I chose the middle ground and I am wearing Back in Black. It...
Creed's Virgin Island Water :smiley:
I can't be without VIW for the summer. My decant ran out so I went FB so I will never run out of this magical elixir juice
Probably Caron Pour Homme
Awesome buy. Enjoy :thumbsup:
Is this a blind buy for you?
SOTD: Ch Men :smiley:
I have never smelled it but I read recently in the comfort scent thread where someone compared Zirh to 7 Up. I have been seeing it at Winners on the cheap lately if your interested
Very strange indeed. I even read with this picture he had changed his name and was now going by Manfred Mugler :shocked:
My wife loves Angel on me. I have A*Men and the flankers but this one appeals to her the most when I wear it. She says it reminds her of fresh laundry.
Guys don't be hesitant to wear it. Light on...
Welcome back :smiley:
It was great to read your perspective and I looking forward to your posts
I find Komodo reminiscent of Mugler Cologne :smiley:
Me too, I got all giddy for a second there :cheesy:
Both are extremely wearable
I think the dry down is similar
Woods & mint. Two of the best ingredients combined together. What was not to like? :smiley:
Now might be the opportune time to keep the ball rolling and visit the underrated Ice Men for an icy...
Diesel's Fuel For Life. Raspberry & Liquorice. The opposite of an aquatic. Sweet and delicious. Cool-a$$ bottle. Looks great on the shelf. Your in good hands with an Annick Mennardo creation
Pure Havane has a certain freshness to it
Black Aoud in the summer is fantastic. There is just something about rose in summer that just works.
I try to get away with only a half spray though.
Based on your likes listed, it doesn't seem like a good match, but you will never know unless you sample it
Mugler Cologne or L' Eau d'Issey Summer 2012
Such a fall from grace
Marquis, do you enjoy other vetiver fragrances?
#1 Serge Lutens Fille en Aguilles - pine
Gucci Pour Homme - cedar, campfire
Body Kouros :coolold:
Without a doubt, you are looking for Xerjoff 1861.
The most natural mint and citrus scented frag on the market. Great longevity for a citrus frag too :thumbsup:
Expensive to say the least but...
Sounds nice and woody. Looking forward to sniffing it :smiley:
I hope they improved the projection on this one though
Another nod towards Guerlain Homme Intense :thumbsup:
Back to Black
L'Eau d'Issey Myake Pour Homme
Frederic Malle L'Eau d'Hiver
Tom Ford's Neroli Portofino and Mugler Cologne.
Both are non offensive, great longevity and extremely uplifting and fresh-clean
It has an awesome dry down. If males can wear Musc Ravageur they can wear L. They share the same chassis just different body.
Sketchy :huh: but it is common for B*Men to be fetched at that low price.
Great bang for the buck
Noooooooooo, not my LIDGE.
Please, have mercy :sad:
bigsteve, I hope you weren't planning on Narcisco Rodriguez as your SOTD tomorrow :laugh:
Rive Gauche and Body Kouros
Easily Mugler and Creed :coolold:
Bleu is firing on all cylinders :thumbsup:
Check out Cannabis Santal by Fresh.
Yes ... Burberry's The Beat. A blast of black pepper off the top blended nicely with vetiver.
This fragrance has really dropped off the radar here at Basenotes :huh:
They are all worth owning. Fantastic House :thumbsup:
Eau de Star -Thierry Mugler is what you are looking for :coolold:
Habit Rouge EDP
Paul Smith Story
L'Eau d'Issey Summer 2012
I would love to have this circulating in a spacesuit. Bliss :thumbsup:
By Kilian's Back to Black :coolold:
You can't go wrong with Bleu de Chanel
Nuclear, but I like this aspect of it. One of many fantastic attributes this fragrance possesses
There is enough on both sides of this House to keep me interested
Tom Ford's Neroli Portofino
Distilled sunshine in a bottle
In no particular order :coolold:
L' Eau D' Issey Pour Homme Summer Edition
Mugler Ice Men
Less chance of coming across it too on somebody else
Chanel Allure Homme
Citrus, woods and spice.
I have a few go-to comfort scents
L'Artisan's Bois Farine
Very interesting list.
It's always cool to see where everyone ranks there faves.
Thanks for sharing. :smiley:
Me too. I found the previous formulation in the frosted-ribbed bottle too out of balance.
Too much sharp citrus on the top followed by an over-load of ashy tobacco
L'Eau d'Issey Pour Homme
Paul Smith Story
Tom Ford's Neroli Portofino
And another vote for Chanel Platinum Egoiste
You may want to consider Cannabis Santal by Fresh. It's close to smelling like A*Men. You will read this similarity alot in many reviews.
As of today, it's Mugler Cologne.
I wouldn't say it's my favourite but at the same time it's not surprising to me it's my most worn. It's because it's so versatile, and so pleasing to wear. It's...
19282Habit Rouge EDP
It's awesome. It's more transparent then the others. It is very woody.
It's got the classic Guerlain Vetiver in it with a light, smooth, under-current of rum. It works great in warm weather that's...
Agreed. Awesome patchouli frag.
I think it carries the best longevity of all the Varvatos. They tend to leave you wanting more but this one delivers in this department
Mine just came in the mail today purchased off an EBay seller. It was sealed with the original packaging although the bottle was dusty, and I have no reason why this is the case.
I will say this...
Lolita Lempicka. Anise, rum under-current , and woodsy dry down. :thumbsup:
Gaultier 2 :thumbsup:
Let us know how it turns out
SOTD: JP Gaultier's Le Malle
I think any of the modern Chanel's are great citrus/woody scents.
Allure Edition Blanche is a nice creamy lemon scent. Check out Allure Homme Sport for zesty orange citrus

Fille en Aiguille
A bed of pine needles smothered in pine sap laying on a forest floor
For sure :coolold:
I will also add Tom Ford's Neroli Portofino. It's a fantastic masculine floral scent
Do you have the frosted ribbed bottle?
A scene from Jeopardy:
Contestant: "I"ll take scent subjective masterpieces for 1000 please Alec"
Alex Trebec: "batch C42B10K03 considered to be the best fragrance released for 2010 or...
Wow there is a lot of great suggestions here but I will throw Paul Smith's Story into the mix
as well for good measure
Note to self: get samples of Alafrom's Perfect 10 scents
LeMale and 1 Million
There is a foreman on our job site who bathes in LeMale. I can tell where he has been and passed through the site even though he is no longer in that spot. Funny too, because...
I will say A*Men Pure Leather for 2012
I will say Aventus, Back to Black, Black Aoud, L'Instant Extreme, and Pure Havane
Happy Birthday :smiley:
Another nod towards Habit Rouge. Classic juice :coolold:
Bulgari Man :thumbsup:
Apparently Elvis loved it ... And he could have probably had a Creed bespoked for himself.
That speaks volumes
Shilly shilly Bo Billy Babanna Fanna Bo Billy .... shilly
This sounds awesome
Wow, nice, I'm there :thumbsup:
Love it :coolold:
I use to think it smelled dated early on in my fragrance journey but that was just my inexperienced nose
This is an accurate description. There is a peanut butter vibe for sure. But it's how you interpret that. You might think you smell peanuts or you might interpret it as woods and florals. The smell...
I had the "pickle juice" experience with my bottle too :shocked:
My bottle started off fine and then after a year and half it started to smell like it. It had to have turned
A great dry, camphorous, earthy patchouli scent.
Legit and enjoy :smiley:
You will notice a strong presence of anise
Lets not forget about Lacoste Oud Challenge
