Good luck finding that. I've been looking for that for months.
The cheapest way to get the smell of Joop! is to tie a urinal cake around your neck. The projection isn't quite as good, but it lasts even longer!
I also love the watermelon smell and was part of a thread about it not too long ago.
Game does have watermelon that starts off pretty good, but after about 30 minutes it develops a really nasty...
I tried it about a week ago and was impressed. I only sprayed it on a card, so I only really got the tops notes. However it smelled like Lemon Peel (very NOT synthetic smelling) mixed with some...
Yeah, it makes me sick and dizzy with even 1 spray.
I really starting to think that the % of base noters that I can agree with smell wise is drastically smaller than I once thought. So many countless times I've read where people fall in love with...
double post/ how do I delete?
What about the Watermelon one? Or what about any of the beachy-ish ones?
Number 1 is Joop. It was that expensive, but any dollar amount was too much. I would have to be paid to even own this garbage again.
Number 2 is some Antonia Banderas cologne from walmart for $3...
Or jumped his bones with compliments....
What do you mean?
I have Dali: Laguna coming in the mail. I'm buying it blind and it's my first experience with the house. If I like it as much as I hope I will, I'll be stopping by the other options they put out.
OMG. wtf. I sent them a rather pleasant request saying that I had used Issey Miyake for a year or so and was really interested to see what else they had to offer since no store close to me offered...
lol, me too
Acqua Di Gio. Amirite?
Your review on here mentions lime, but the others do not and I can't seem to find reviews of this elsewhere. How would you describe the lime in this one? Like 7-UP style lime or like lime from a...
Joop! probably should be in the women's section. I was always surprised that it was marketed towards men.
Yeah, it's awesome :)
No one ever seems to mention it, but I definitely notice it.
Wow, that's awesome. I need to go check mine out. There are several things in that list that I want.
The more you guys talk about this, the more I want to get it. Sounds like exactly what I wish the original was.
Yeah, my Set Sail St. Barts is a "cologne spray". It has great longevity on me, but not on most others.
For 20 bucks that a good deal.
Ever since L'Eau Par Kenzo was suggested to me on here and I blind bought it, it remains the best blind buy I've ever made. It's amazing. One of top three colognes I think.
I haven't tried the...
Its funny, one of my first posts here on base notes had almost the exact same title.
The only thing I've smelled with a mango note is Paris Hilton for Men. It was actually recommended to me in...
I'd like to smell it. I'm actually trying to get a bottle now. An aquatic base instead of a woody base like the perfect addition to me :)
I do this too :)
Clinique: Happy for Men.
Well, Banana Republic kind of smells like fresh cut grass at the opening. Then quickly becomes a super fresh soapy smell. Super clean.
Hugo Boss, the original one, smells like cedar and pine and...
Almost everything I wear either makes me happy, or energized. I prefer those scents.
The likely case in your situation is that you had smelled that on someone long ago or during a sad time in your...
Yeah, heat is amazing like that. That's why lighter summer fragrances are often times deemed as weak. It's really just to counteract how overpowering it would be if it was any stronger.
He doesn't need a fragrance. His natural odor is enough... and it smells like fear.
1st wish. I'd like my soul back, thanks :)
2nd wish. I'd like you gone and never heard from again.
3rd wish. I'd like to never worry about money again or anyone I care for has to...
Nothing too intriguing or else your mind will wonder. Something very light so it doesn't require your attention. I'd go with something like The One by D&G. Energetic but not too much.
Demeter has some scents specifically targeted towards smelling like booze, as said in another thread.
One that I have/had that smell like liquor:
Tommy Bahama- Set Sail St. Barts.
Yeah, that's been happening to me too. Sometimes I can't get on the site for 30 minutes or so, or when I post it doesn't post and firefox tells me it can't connect...?
I'm pretty sure they are the same thing. If I'm not mistaken, doesn't Lynx make Axe?
I like the spraying under your shirt method. Often times it works perfectly. I continuously get the smell for a few hours longer. I easily suffer from nose fatigue, though.
Is it really? I didn't know that either. I might need to hurry up and get one too, in case I like it.
Well, that's subjective, but to me it's nasty.
These are two I'm curious about. Are these blind buys for you? I have never smelled either, but am intrigued.
I find that different colognes require different techniques to increase longevity and sillage for me. I just played around until I found the right ones that work best for me.
Yeah, that's a good point. I actually only know of one other person that I have ever smelled Black on. I seem to hardly ever come in contact with Kenneth Cole around here. Good for me, because I like...
Me too. However, I actually love how black smells. So it's win-win for me :)
That wind tunnel would just succeed in making everyone in the place sick, as well. Do you really spray 10 times?
Banana Republic: Classic
Everything listed in the bottom part of my signature :)
More like 'went over to the dark side'... lol
lol, that's a pretty good point. Yeah, I agree with that. Maybe the best way for them to go about attempting to make a difference would be to actually donate a % of the money made from these...
Hmmm. Maybe they really just don't work on your skin. Clashing chemicals or something.
Well, before you denounce the fragrances altogether, hold off and try to test some out in store and see for...
Well, buying online is sometimes tricky. Buying from an outlet is as close to a guarantee as you can get in most cases.
Check the serial numbers on the box and bottle and make sure they match....
Did you buy them from an outlet or the internet?
This is bizarre behavior for Chanel. I, like many others, get great longevity with all the Allures I have tried. There could be a flaw with your...
Yeah, I actually learned this little trick myself. I can get fatigued easily sometimes, so this works wonders.
:) Nicely put.
You MUST be into music.
I like how the tops notes blend into the rest of the smell, and can be noticed lightly for the rest of the time. I can detect the top notes the entire time on most fragrances, luckily.
+1 for Joop!
Also, I would say anything super fun would also fit the bill. Even though I love these types of fragrances, anything super fruity and light couldn't really be considered refined or...
Tommy Bahama has yet to make a fragrance I hate. It's designer, but they make quality scents, IMO.
Wow, Indie Guy. You seem to have a lot of built up angst.
Please forgive companies that try to make a buck AND attempt to keep people safe/the world livable. They know not what they do.
Emly, I applaud your restraint from wearing it! :)
Also, I did not mean to single you, sorry.
lol, sorry no offense.
Something about all of this just doesn't seem legit.
I have had the EXACT same question myself for a while now. I used to use unscented Right Guard spray antiperspirant, but I can't seem to find that any more.
Also, where did you get that crystal...
I don't really get it. What happened?
I didn't think that Versace PH smelled exactly like it. I mean, I can definitely notice some similarities, but I think there are more differences. To me, if you mixed Versace PH and AdG and then...
Well, I haven't tried layering (on purpose anyway) since high school. I mixed everything I could with Adidas Moves (LOL). I thought it gave me a signature scent backbone, or something. IDK.
Oh God. I would have died.
I'm the kind of person that can smell what someone is wearing as they casually pass by me, and sometimes even pick out the exact fragrance they are wearing (if is a...
Grats! You've been posting long before I, ever so recently, joined the club. Thanks for helping get the site to what it is today.
See, this kind of acquired taste is something I actually want to avoid. I don't want to get to the point in my life where something that could possibly be construed as piss could smell good to me.
Oh yes! We talked about them the other day and I'd already forgot about it.
I have yet to try it, but from the reviews I'm quite saddened. Maybe they will release some more awesomeness soon.
None yet, but I'm eager to try West Indian Limes. I'm hoping for the best.
I think the age classification is a preference. If you think it's too old, then it is for you. There's nothing wrong with that.
If you can spray 5 sprays of that stuff, then you are destined to be Mr. CologneGuy for the rest of your life. Your senses just aren't what they used to be.
Most of the time, the oils decide for themselves when they will leave and how the smell will appear. That's one of the reasons it's an art form. It has to be done properly to turn out with the...
That's pretty righteous, indeed.
I hope I don't have a fake. That would suck. I want to resell it because of such a short length, but I don't want to sell a fake :(
I really do enjoy the smell, tho.
I wonder what the world would be like if Acqua di Gio was marketed like Stetson, and vice versa... ?
Well, thanks for the offer, but I don't really deem myself as a person that is qualified to even run a forum poll on fragrances. I'm definitely more of just a voter. lol.
That's remarkably better than the one I got her :(
Well, I'm not trying to say you did it wrong or anything like that. I'm just adding some input is all.
Suggestion for Round 2. Add in some more options for the younger crowd, preferably. That area of fragrances may be deemed as: cheap, synthetic, boring, or poor by some... but others really quite love...
For clubbing I would say Givenchy: Pi or Chanel: Allure Pour Homme Sport.
I'm not sure I can help you out with this, but I admire your description and the scenario that you're interested in. Cool way of thinking.
Also, Sculpture, your pretty good at explaining the mood...
That's a good point. I don't recall ever smelling anything quite like that.
I'd really like to see another scent come from these guys. One of the best designer fragrance makers for sure.
I don't really like these types of scents, so the driest I own is Kenneth Cole: RSVP. It's definitely very woody and, to me, very dry.
The driest I've smelled is Boss #6, but to me it was very...
Some notes just don't have the natural ability to out last others. They can come close and be mix/manufactured to adjust the longevity, but in most cases they are forced to take on the role of the...
Lacoste: Pour Homme. It may be a designer, but there's not another exactly like it. It oozes seductive class, IMO.
It will never mellow out....
I found Polo Black to be moderately pleasant. It's a different type of fruity than I am typically into, but it wasn't bad. The dry down reminded me a bit of the dry down of AdG, actually. I also...
Chanel Allure Pour Homme Sport :)
Chanel Allure Pour Homme was created as a classic.
So, the variation of Givenchy Play? I didn't know they had that. I though Play WAS the summer variation and Play Intense was the winter version.
I need to try Summer Code. Maybe I can detect a...
Tim's spoof was almost exactly spot on. Only thing he should have done was say his two most common phrases: "Well, what it all comes down to.../ When you get right down to it..." or "Two sprays on...
Kenneth Cole: Black. Young and Classy.
Sounds like Acqua Di Gio by Armani is for you!
That's a super popular cologne everywhere else in the world. Even if you stand out where you live, you won't anywhere else you go. Smells pretty...
Actually with small vials you have to leave a certain amount of space for it to be able to spray properly.
Yeah. Check the serial numbers and make sure the ones on the bottle match the ones on the box. See if the nozzle looks tampered with or glued on. Also, if the box lid is very easy to open, then it...
I think it's a personal taste thing. I also definitely have some colognes that just scream SUMMER! To someone else it could be completely wrong for the warmer months. It's what you feel is...
Yeah, if you like, wear it. And if your crowd likes it, that's even more of a reason to wear it.
As long as you're happy with the results, that's all that you can ask for. Reminds me of a song:
How long does that typically last for you?
Nothing so far?
I know it's moderately hated here on BN, but I find that the original Hugo Boss is actually a pretty pleasing green. It could be construed to have a sweet based, but I perceive is as a mellow...
