I was recently told my Mugler cologne is 'too strong'
also Montale Fougere Marine or MFK APOM
same 'vein' and you might like:

ELdO Je Suis un Homm
if youre located in the US, you can always sample or buy from luckyscent dot com
Hiro is up there with Marc and Katie.
^ F Black has a sweet caramel apple vibe... women like it
Clean cut, professional, and well groomed can be taken to mean a number of different things. For me, at least 3 iconic images come to mind.
1. shirt&tie, up&comer, young professional (business...
I find some Gucci PH II notes in the drydown
has mass appeal
not snob appeal
AHSE is what AHS shouldve been, decent but not great
personally, the Allure line does nothing for me, but the Sport Extreme was a step in the right direction
Aventus is a compliment getter.
Most recently, it's been Tom Ford Amber Absolute and Mugler's Pure Shot
I also work in an ER. Currently as a resident.
I like ambers and orientals as well but would never dream of wearing them to work because the umm 'natural' smells of the ER don't combine well with...
i'd start at Xerjoff and go north
don't eat spicy foods for a week, shower regularly, and use deodorant
then start spraying
keep coffee beans nearby
it smells like top ramen and chemistry lab
Montale Woods & Spice
Mark Birley Charles Street
we've eschewed the feral / fecal for the impetuously classical. good on us. it smells damn good.
too young. she will be sorely missed.
i'll have to look into it
copy of porsche design
these threads annoy me
spray the fucking thing... smell good? then its good. WTF
something pleasant and uplifting
Heeley Menthe Fraiche
Creed Original Vetiver / Royal Water
it's a pity basenotes doesn't have a reputation system
Azzaro Homme is a great casual and light men's fragrance. The D&G Light Blue of the 70's.
not all offices are the same
Creed RW and OV for me
it's good to have a system
in general, i sample at least twice before i make a final judgement on a niche
srsly, i take back what i said.
after some oud sniffing... the closest thing out there is Mona Di Orio's Oud
let the hate begin
uhh negative ghostrider
I clicked on this thinking Yes! I do, as a matter of fact, need Rehab from fragrances.
something needs to smell like genitals or fungus for basenoters to really love it
the stuff that's recommended on this forum is seriously hideous sometimes...
if you could only have one oud.... is this it?
what would happen if you put, say Creed MI, in a cup at room temperature
then give it to 2 girls
It's a cantata, not new orleans street music. Simple but not simplistic. An extremely wearable oud and the only oud in my current rotation.
LOL @ when you ask for 'new inspiration' and people recommend Caron and Rive Gauche
The closer I get to 40, the less interest I have in the Azzaro PH, Rive Gauche, or anything made by Caron
i have no idea what a 'summer night' smells like other than DEET
A-Men is a ridonkulously good frag
Thank you for sharing that story. I also wear scents which bring back memories, but not quite that vivid or that meaningful.
Guerlain PH Extreme
Midnight in Paris EDP : Bvlgari Black :: GIT : Cool Water
I'd still recommend Pure Havane, being limited edition and all. Pick up the MIP later.
I've lost track how many of these slow-motion car wrecks I've seen happen to decent guys.
Learned my lesson early, two different girls left me in order to hook up and not make it look like...
and need help deciding between 1270 and 1697
x2 of course
GIT er done
saved up for weeks to pick up a small bottle of this
10 bottles of Pure Malt
wait a year
sell them on ebay
what a noob
everyone knows Yatagan smells like Afghan Heroin
Congratulations on the Coq.
sample until you find something YOU like....
This 'come to my senses' makes no sense when talking about Creed. The majority are simple fragrances with an inflated pricetag.
Also +1 on Zagorsk and Ungaro III
Gucci by Gucci PH (black bottle) is a little smoky and metallic and not overpowering
Have you considered Thierry Mugler ice men?... It takes the gourmand and...
Here's the rest of em. Honestly I couldn't remember Narciso Rodriguez for the life of me so I decided to be a smartass instead... Here's the rest. Not androgynous per se, but then again scents don't...
saffron bomb... oud is hidden away in there
wonder how long it will take the fakes to come out?
Tom Ford Noir de Noir
and if you want to grow a pair and cut it with the androgynous nonsense you should try...
nevermind, i dont give that kind of timeless frag advice to Emo...
ouch, sorry to hear bro
^ Aoud Lime is sinister in the first hour but the drydown is very bright and effervescent with the lime and wood
no compliments yet
Allure Homme Sport got me a few tight hugs from a very...
picked it up last Saturday
drydown is real nice. would be at home in a suit and tie as well.
from your wardrobe, Frapin or LeMale
got hair on your chest? if so, yes you're safe to wear Bois du Portugal, buttercup
if not, it will put some there
either way, it's a win
I normally apply a "base layer" of Aventus after each shower. As it happens, the recommended number of sprays is 7. The Millesime is sprayed 4 inches from the bare torso in a 45 degree downward...
Black Aoud is rather brilliant as a club scent, never thought of it that way
I'd throw out Midnight in Paris EDP, Creed Aventus, Montale Woods and Spice, TF Tobacco Vanille.
and Grey Flanel...
sample and find something you like. i used to wear frags to the gym based on 'Sport' moniker, but honestly they end up turning sour citrus
recently, the most palatable have...
My 17yr and 19yr old brothers used up my Gucci PH 2 and Ambre Narguile bottles when I was away.
it's not a fake
it really does smell that bad
Creed Silver Mountain Water
if there ever was a shared unisex fragrance, this would be it
light but elegant, goes great with any occasion
Guerlain Heritage is something special for me, probably bc I can wear it anywhere including work, and not feel ostentatious.
Im a quarter way through my second bottle in the last 12 months....
MDCI Invasion Barbare + Aventus
depends on the jacket
^ it smells like a refined man that doesn't give a F
i can attest to this
quite a pungent batch
the sexiest girl i've seen in a long time complimented me on Creed MI
Givenchy Play Intense
its summer so...
Creed Millesime Imperiale
Chanel Allure Homme Sport
Montale Woods and Spice
Cartier Declaration Cologne
Aventus 2 days ago.
So I picked up Chanel AHS after talking myself out of it so many times before. Sprayed it on, took completely different character than on the card - wham bam 2 compliments in...
eau de nothing
yesterday I complimented a fragrance card sprayed with Hermes Equipage
in typical Hermes clientele fashion, the card completely ignored me
Look at me rolling out with Bvlgari Acqva and Creed Original Vetiver... taking all sorts of risks in Vegas lol
i will take the luckyscent samples of Cardinal and test it out
what to wear?
the Creed Aventi and TF Tobacco Vanille are expected... so as to complement the smoke
the Cartier Declaration is a given... fresh, classy, balanced
but what about Heeley...
Another compliment for Montale Woods and Spice
from a dood - not a chick :/
ah yes the mysterious ambergreeez
how could i forget...
Creed Aventus. tested in Vegas. loved everywhere. lol
i'm wearing the stuff i like now...
not memories of events and chapters of my life that have long since passed, or scents that i plan on wearing for such and such event. that kind of planning...
someone's going to Vegas...
Tobacco smoke is unbeatable - so you might as well complement it. Dior Fahrenheit, Angel Men Pure Malt or Pure Havane, TF Tobacco Vanille work nicely.
MDCI Invasion Barbare
ELdO Tom of Finland
Creed Spice and Wood
Montale Woods and Spice
Finally got fed up
Got rid of a lot of "I'm a collector so i need to have these" like Kouros, Versace Dreamer, Creed BdP, Gucci Envy, YSL Opium, etc. Are they nice? Sure. Wearable? Sure. But not...
they ruined what couldve been a great thread
we need more liberal application of the banhammer, early on
