People who think shill bidding is o.k is obv brain-dead.
:laugh:L'eau D'Issey Pour homme and masterpiece .... ?? Your definition of masterpiece is entirely different than mine.
Opium for Men .
Noir de Noir and Tea for Two would be ok.
Where did you buy it from ?
Buy a split of Aventus off here and its better than any designer scent ever made.
You could dip me in horse shyt for all I care.
Two fantastic frags.
I’m heading in that way. 100 ml of any Amouage bottle would last me for years.
Great cold weather scent, I bought 50 ml and like it.
MI for day.
Jubilation XXV for night.
It’s a light aquatic that’s good for warm weather.
It’s a great scent...Nice find.
Try Reflection Man by Amouage.
Well worth the risk for everyone that purchased..... Nice find. I missed out.
Italian Cypress for me.
It’s like comparing 50 cents to a thousand dollars...guess which one is 50 cents ?
For every Bond scent, Creed has one, only better.
VIW because I own it..... Fire Island is too similar to suntan lotion.
I usually but not always use incense frags for winter and aquatic for summer. I think you’ll end up like most people on here and end up wearing whatever you feel like for that day and forgetting...
I get a baby powder note from Gold not so much from Dia.
I tried it and gave my bottle away..... not for me.
Nothing original, smells okay. Much better frags on the market with similar vibes.
Lyric is way better. Rose 31 is a cumin all the way with a slight rose musk near the end.
Like any company selling merchandise, room has to be made for new lines that are coming into the market. Companies can carry just so much product and what gets discontinued is determined on a number...
Green Irish Tweed....lightly applied.
These fakes are so bad that even the Chinese are shaking their heads.
It’s not soapy.
A month or so ago I asked my fellow Basenoters on a suggestion for a leather scent. Having tried M and Tuscany Leather, I excluded both as being fbw and took into consideration what you’ve suggested....
What kind of notes do you like ? Have to narrow it down somewhat.
The only one I have off your list is Bois de Cedrat. Nice but lasts 10 minutes , then just becomes a mild skin scent. Very linear.
I just bought my last fragrance of 2011 tonight and don’t plan on anything for 2012.
All I get is cumin like op......
Italian Cypress is great for me and lasts 8+ hours with excellent sillage.
Very synthetic and generic for me as well. I bought it blind since it was really cheap and used it maybe twice.
Green Irish Tweed can be had in that range if you look around. That’s one of them.
Most of what I swap or give away is due to my allergy problem , that said, I regret swapping Chergui.
Look into Green Irish Tweed and M.I - both by Creed.
All good except a couple of duds. Not bad enough to deter me from blind buying.
Let us know what you think of what you tested.....
If I had to pick from your list it would be Mont Blanc Legend. My condolences as well .
I gotta give this one a try.
Honour’s not overpowering to begin with. Jubilation and Memoir are work horses.
LDDM and Memoir ....fantastic.
I tend to go with more incense type frags in the winter... and aquatics for warmer weather.
Cool Water = synthetic mess
G.I.T = arguably one of the best frags ever produced.
There’s a lot if I understand your question correctly. What kind of scents are you looking for minus the “ wood “ ?
What would Dave Hester wear ?
L’Artisan to me is not strange at all, in fact I would consider most of what they have “ safe “ .
Aventus or Green Irish Tweed - Creed
Nio was ok....not worth the price.
Bond 9 not close to either.
I like that list for the most part.
Wait,...isn’t the real Aqua Di Gio a fake ?
A little on the feminine side but very good nonetheless.
Because of what I usually wear is only sold in a few stores here in Canada, I’ll usually answer by saying , it’s a “ Creed or Amouage “....if they want the specific name or where to get it, I’ll...
Depends on the amount of cocaine he snorted before deciding.
Rose Oud and Lyric Man have little if anything in common at all.
I hate this stuff as well.
I wore it for the first time today and I am getting cumin from start to finish.....
Thanks everyone....got some sampling to do.
Hey guys, excluding Knize 10 and Pure Distance M what are some of the best leather scents I can sample ?
I was too chicken to bet....lol
I remember when I bought my first 4 oz bottle of Creed and couldn’t believe how much I spent to get it. Now I have 11 ....
What’s your top 5 puddleMonkey ?
It’s a great scent and does the job as far as compliments go.
B Men would be the worst, of almost any scent in hot weather.
When you’re paying as much as they charge, they better do the right thing.
Strong baby powder note in Gold for me as well....I’m really surprised so may people like it.
What are the best attars to try ?
I have both and the two are excellent for both projection and longevity. As someone stated, Jubilation is much more complex than Lyric but both smell great. If I had to pick between the two, I’d go...
I wore Jubilation XXV and wouldn’t change it for the world.
It’s certainly not bottle worthy for me after testing it twice. I own Reflection, Jubilation and Lyric but I’m passing on this one. There’s simply not enough there to warrant the price.
Apply the right amount...use in cooler weather.....nicest designer since polo green.
Caron.... Not my cup of tea.
I’m trying to get my collection down to maybe 15 or 20 bottles.....Too many bottles of mine collecting dust while I’ve learned to enjoy the ones I like and not want to buy everything on the market.
I have a bottle of Lyric....it’s ok but don’t wear it often.
Invasion Barbare wont let you down....great stuff.
I’ll wear anything if I like it...... It’s a mistake to classify any scent gender specific and that goes to manufactures/houses that produce fragrances.
I will make the mistake of saying...
Man, I hate to rain on the “ M “ parade but I get a mild leather skin scent from this. The two female fragrances I tested were simply amazing but was let down with M.
I’ll give it another wear and...
3-4 hours is pretty much max. I think Jack is the exception with this one. Terrible longevity but one one of the best aquatics while it lasts.
why is “ above average longevity “ an option ?
Back to Black dries down to a sweet powdery musk...... but nice nonetheless.
All in all I find myself reaching for Green Irish Tweed more on average than any other through out the year.
Just testing M as I type this.....I get a nice leather opening in the first 45 minutes....lets see where it goes.
If it’s real bad, take a shower.....and I certainly wouldn’t throw something on that haven’t tried before and head to work.
I just sampled it last night and out of Invasion Barbare, Black Oud, Frapin 1270......Gaiac 10 is a winner....now I just have to justify the price.
Give Gaiac 10 a try, I just responded in another thread about how good it is. I think you’d like it.
Give Gaiac 10 a try for the one of the best wood scents ever made.
