Hard choice... Today, it would be A*Men just because its most complex one. Tomorrow it could be Pure Malt.

Hard choice... Today, it would be A*Men just because its most complex one. Tomorrow it could be Pure Malt.
I am not telling its not possible but I would not base my opinion about any Chanel based on bottle from ebay. Have you tried "new "version in regular store before?
There is nothing wrong with Creeds bottle design.
They have nothing in common except of name.
Egoiste - sweet and rich - this is pure oriental
Platinum Egoiste - dry and sharp - alternative to aquatics
I've tried Vetiver Tonka just once so I dont remember much about it (except of that it smelled very unique). I own sample of Viaggio Di Africa and really liked it at first (almost bought full bottle...
I dont find them similiar (maybe little bit on top notes). Royal Oud is less harsh and more comforting and that would be my pick.
Bentley For Men Intense
Congrats. DH is one of best designer scents (if not best) from last 10 years. DHI? Well, it is great. It perfoms better on my skin than DH but IMO is not as groundbreaking as original. It is more...
Better compliment getter (not better scent) would be New Haarlem.
A*Men used to be beast. Now its slightly toned down but still has better projection and longevity than 99% of what is on designer fragrances market. Other flankers are in the same league.
DHI in all departments.
Dior Homme Cologne (vintage)
Eau Des Baux
Fille en Aiguilles
Paul Smith For Men
Montale Dark Aoud
L'Air du Desert Marocain
Mugler Pure Shot
Azzaro Pour Homme
L Artisan Voleur De Roses
Prada Luna Rossa
I've tried it 2 times so far. IMO it is best of Luna Rossa trio. Really smells like Le Male + some parts of original Luna Rossa. I like it and my girlfriend said I smell great like 5x during...
I've tried it yesterday. First impressions: smells like a*men light + orange peel on top. I smell orange peel for whole life of scent (even longer than a*men base). I dont find any resemblence to...
I like both. Prada is classy soap, Mugler is easy to wear summer scent.
I am quite happy with selling or buying here on BN. It gives me FOR FREE much wider public to sell fragrances that I dont longer want or buy hard to find fragrances (or other that people no longer...
Fragrance itself may be good (I like Chrome Sport) but those people sitting at marketing department should really be fired. "Intense" ? Seriously? What is f***ing wrong with every company making...
I know what you mean. Good advice: Just sell/give away scents that you dont love. Life is too short to "wear fragrances just because you own them". I've sold few and feel much better. And if there...
Versace Pour Homme or Versace Man Eau Fraiche.
I really like woody + incense aspects of Azzaro Visit for men but would prefer it without sweetness thats coming probably from nutmeg.
I did my homework before posting so I am...
This is like comparing apples with oranges but DHI is better fragrance.
Definitely real and its not minor difference!!!. I often try samples both on me and my girlfriend and some stuff smells better on my skin and some on her. And its not just minor tweaking. Its...
Hermes Concentré D´Orange Verte
First time I smelled GIT I had to wash it away because I found it overpowering with violets and hated it.
2nd time I liked it better. Then I tried Cool Water in local perfumery and was like WTF?...
Everything that I've tried from Creed is excellent and I can recommend you to sample as many as you can.
Aventus, Royal Oud, Silver Mountain Water (high end CK One), Virgin Island Water (coconut...
Encre Noire - 1 spray on your shirt and you can wear it everywhere. Woody & masculine (I am talking about reformulated version which I find much easier to wear than original)
Everyone has right to enjoy his fragrances even people in poor country. That is absolutely OK. What I dont like is "I am better than you because I own rare and expensive stuff" mentality which I...
I fully agree with you. I restrained myself from posting in this thread because I didnt want to start just flame war but I find it really sad and disturbing that post like OP come from someone who...
Now, here comes the brave whistleblower :D. I am really looking forward to it.
If you dont care about projection but want enjoy your scent for a long time spray it as far from your nose as possible (chest will usually work). Also, when I want to wear scent just for myself and...
For summer I would go with original DH.
Its only strong and sharp on top notes. If you can survive first hour or two, magic is in the drydown :).
Yes. EDP is called Extreme but better ask seller first.
It is worth way more.
I blind bought LIDGE and never regreted it. Both are great scents and you will probably end with both. You already have DHP so I would start with LIDGE.
There is no citrus in FDM. Both are heavy florals but based on different flowers. I personaly like FDM but dont wear it more than couple times a year.
not similar smell but similiar fresh and masculine style
Azzaro Chrome Sport
Dior Homme Cologne 2013
Creed = because they make easy to wear fragrances of high quality ingredients.
Few members came on my mind that I am confident that have very similiar taste (with some exceptions of course):
L'Homme Blanc Individuel
Gucci PH II
Owned both. Sold BDC. So its Acqua Di Gio for me.
It is nice but there are Creeds that I like better. When top notes fade,it smells just like CK One made of much higher quality ingredients mixed with MI. Unisex but more on feminine side to my nose.
Just few dabs of Aventus on my T-shirt lasts more than 2 weeks. Thats pretty good value for money. If she buy just small bottle and use it on pillows every week, than she will be good to go for many...
Vetiver - Lalique Encre Noire
Oud - Guerlain Songe d'un Bois d'Été
Rose - tie between L Artisan Voleur De Roses and Montale Black Aoud
Amber - Tauer L'Air du Desert Marocain
Avon Crisp Forest
There are only few in my collection that I would immediately restock if I find out that they were discontinued.
I know a few people that still think that online discounters are selling fakes and they rather pay 2 or 3x more for retail. IMO they are throwing their money through windows but if people like this...
I like Creed Royal Oud best... because it doesnt smell like oud at all. :lolk:
No allergic reactions but majority of scents makes me sneeze if overapplied.
Its one of better fresh designer scents. I certainly never smelled anything similiar (but I have not tried mentioned Eau d'Hermes or Bigarade Concentree). I'd say solid 4/5 stars.
I would not mind wearing clone if I like it enough. I may actually buy some Fahrenheit rip off because I may prefer it over current version...
There is nothing wrong with you. You like what you like. I personally, came back to basics and prefer scents that I liked when I started my fragrance hobby. Only difference is that I cant tolerate...
I may be minority but seriously Why? It is just internet forum about fragrances. I would prefer if administrators spend time on other things instead (like new wardrobe features, security, etc) :)
I've tried Millesime Imperial, Green Irish Tweed, Aventus, Original Vetiver and Royal Oud. None of them last less than 7 hours on my skin...
How about Royal Oud ? I sampled it just once and really loved drydown (didnt care for topnotes). I already own MI so I dont need more of same...
Its one of few fragrances that is warm and fresh in the same time. Thats the reason why it works in hot but also cold weather. And as you already noticed it works best during spring.
I prefer Versace PH but sillage/longevity is probably slightly better with BDCH.
1 or 2 sprays. I found out that when I over apply Creeds they get on my nerves really fast. You also avoid olfactory fatigue and I actually prefer smelling whiffs of my scent ocassionaly rather than...
Creed Royal Oud drydown.
Gucci PH 2 - I wore it 100+ times more than anything else that I own. It performs well on my skin, everybody likes it and what is most important - it suits my personality and has calming effect on me.
2 bottles of GPH II - because of rumours of its being discontinued
1 bottle of LIDGE - because I liked it the way it was and felt like it could be reformulated in future
I am also voting for Menthe Fraiche which is not an option :lolk:
I love both but I find EDB less sweet and slightly more easy to wear... IMO if you like sweet scents its almost impossible to not like EDB so you could buy it blind. DHI is more special but EDB is...
En Passant - just lovely fresh lilac.
Malle is good if you look at fragrances as an art. They also use very high quality material. Unfortunately I find most of their offerings hard to wear. Only three that I would buy (if they cost like...
Issey is better choice for warm weather.
I think that I made some strange comparisions before but no way Roadster smells similiar to Aventus. Unless you have some really really strange batch of Aventus... or Roadster :)
Save your money for something that you tried and love..
Now this should be called Ultimate guide for vintage Fahrenheit hunters :D. Thank you for your time and effort!
One day I prefer LIDGE over DHI, another day I prefer DHI over LIDGE so its tie on the first place. DHP for me is miss. Right now I prefer DH edt (vintage) over all of them.
Congrats! :) . It is indeed great scent. My first impressions were similiar to yours. Now 2 years later I love it almost as much as in the begining (and that doesnt happen often).
EDT is too sharp - I can't wear it as well. EDP is more rounded and still similiar to EDT. Eau Tres Fraiche I tried just once on my vaccation on Mallorca and it was not bad. It was actually one of...
Hard to pick just 3 because my girlfriend compliments my scents often but almost everytime when I wear following I am getting very positive feedback.
Acqua Di Gio
I've tried Profumo yesterday. 1 spray on my wrist and I could barely smell it. After 2 hours I washed it away because what I smelled was not interesting at all. I may try it again when its warmer...
Its funny how people change over time... Right now I am already tired of A*Men and Taste of Fragrance and only one I still want to wear is Pure Malt. I still consider Pure Havane to be rather...
Sisley Eau de Campagne
Lalique Encre Noire
Herrera 212 Men
You sir are looking for L´occitane Eau Des Baux
Versace Man Eau Fraiche
Definitely Armani Code. Body Kouros is not versatile at all.
Anyone actually smelled version in this new box ?
I sold my 2011 bottle and still hope for new version...
I would pass... I did not like M7 Fresh and paying 120 for M7 is too much...
+1 Encre Noire Sport
I still would not wear something that smells very synthetic to my nose but am also going back to basics.... to easy to wear scents. I buy fragrances to wear them and not to look at them in closet...
+Montale Red Vetyver
Fou d'Absinthe - Absinth, pine and woods. Semi-sweet and masculine. Nice. 4/5
Coeur de Vétiver Sacré - Spicy tea but not in a good way. My least favourite of those that I tried. 2/5
Tea for Two -...
Dior Homme Intense
I regret only not buying Gucci Envy PH while it was easy available... Also today I'd probably keep tin can Rive Gauche PH and not sell it like I did.
All of them use very high quality ingredients so I rate tham based only on the scent and my taste.
Carnal Flower 9/10 (great tuberose/coconut combo but very expensive (I think that Fracas is...
