Zara Black Tag Intense
With significant difficultly to vote, due to liking both, slightly preferring The One EDP a bit more
As unusual and unexpected as it may sound, Cartier Roadster and Versace l`Homme both have indeed enough either common or similar (or, at least, non-clashing) notes to be layered quite effortlessly
Reading Naed Nitram`s reviews of so many Creed classics not or difficultly available these days, makes one think about how many of their great scents eventually had to undergo this
Almost every flanker/version of this one has more than enough strength, beginning simply with the regular Le Male, but if I had to choose and to recommend a particular flanker from this line based on...
Congratulations for the impressive posting landmark and for sharing your thoughts, insights and experiences with us- wonderfully nuanced, detailed and substantiated perspective as to how fragrance...
Maybe also just The One EDP or Lanvin Avant Garde
Yves Rocher Feuilles de Verveine
Difficult to beat the value for money of a gift Rocher set within this particular budget- even more so given that the fragrance is packaged within a smaller or bigger assortment of scented products ...
Perhaps also Bleu de Chanel EDP, Mugler Cologne or Dior Homme Sport/Dior Homme Cologne
10-12 dabs of Khaliji fragrance oil
Khlaiji by Al Rehab
Since the house of Cartier was mentioned on this thread: perhaps also the regular, non-flanker Declaration EDT
The personal favorite and thus likeliest recommendations of patchouli fragrances include, without being limited to, the patchouli notes found in:
Rive Gauche pour Homme, Lapidus pour Homme,...
Actually, not very different from a personal dream- in all seriousness- about a vintage plane like the one shown in the poster (even though not having a pilot`s license and not having attended ever...
Two possible suggestions from the house of Jacques Bogart, quite inexpensive but fairly good quality alternatives/additions to fragrances in the style of Le Male and The One:
Riviera Nights and...
While tending to enjoy its Absolute and Parfum flankers even more, understanding why Fahrenheit has at least the potential and even achieves to still be great- even in its current version, did not...
Only know the EDP, not also the EDT of Habit Rouge packaged in a leather jacket bottle- although almost certain that releases of both concentrations with this bottle design may exist.
As for the...
Personally considering and tending to agree that lines become increasingly blurred and making it increasingly difficult to discern styles, features, specifics defining fragrances from one distinct...
Personally not hating it and, in fact quite oppositely, having a quite good opinion about this one.
On everyone that happened to wear it and whom I know, this particular fragrance is smelling...
Maybe also Miracle Homme by Lancome, Fahrenheit 32 by Dior, YSL L`Homme
To my nose, neither smells particularly old- just a personal impression of the vetiver, woody and citric notes rendered by both
Fragrance perceptions do differ and may be subjective from person to person- yet so far never encountered any Axe scent (sadly, not even among the Axe releases that smelled good or decent) to exceed...
For some reason, the immediate mental associations with honey almost instantly bring up two powerhouse and/or quite classic choices:
- Lapidus pour Homme (honeyed patchouli and leather, even with...
65$ Terré 2.5oz PP
Welcome! Personally recommending The One, closely followed by Bleu de Chanel as a possible and quite rewarding second option
Seconding Coco Noir and also adding Dior Dolce Vita, Yves Rocher Secrets d`Essences Vanille Noire and Voile d`Ambre, Versace Crystal Noir
On the more discreet, restrained side: fleeting hints of birch tar towards the base of Yardley Citrus&Wood, while in a completely different style with the same restraint, again a base development,...
In the end, personally believing that the goal is not so much to be an expert (unless being a professional either in the fragrance industry or other line of business/work more or less connected to...
Chose to apply Avon Black Suede again
1. Work - almost anything currently owned, but particularly L`Occitan
2. Formal - Van Cleef&Arpels pour Homme
3. Date - Bogart pour Homme
4. Close Quarter "Combat" Scent - Mugler Cologne
While Eau Sauvage is the personal favorite out of these, either of the two Allure flankers are most likely safer bets for both gym and compliments- being lighter, more casual, more youthful,...
While most of these are rather tame and restrained on the "animalic scale", nevertheless enjoying the ones subsequently mentioned, in no particular order:
Van Cleef & Arpels pour Homme, Chanel...
Never had this particular problem, neither with the very first 2-3 sprays ever from a bottle just purchased, nor from 2-3 sprays either from the same bottle or of any other bottle first used after...
Routinely in spring, rarer, mostly for evening wear/in slightly cooler weather conditions/slightly lower temperatures and with fewer sprays during summer
(sorry for not being able to further/additionally magnify this advertising picture)
Bogart pour Homme has, personally speaking, the power to bring up "Christmas in a bottle" sensations, memories, associations, all very pleasant
To a lesser extent, Eau des Baux as well, although...
Personally preferring from this list: Grey Vetiver EDP, quite closely followed by Black Orchid EDP
To a certain extent, Pierre Herme Pamplemousse Rhubarbe by L`Occitane (grapefruit- check, slightly sweet and also minimally powdery- check, even slightly aquatic and slightly boozy- check) and also...
Personally always preferring diversity (unless the "single option fragrance" is, admittedly not the most expensive but still absolute personal favorite, Armani Eau pour Homme)
While not meticulously and precisely keeping track of the points, went through the sections 1-4 quite effortlessly, lost track and focus almost completely around section 5 and only sporadically,...
Perhaps Creed Original Santal and Lagerfeld Classic
Since the house of Guerlain was mentioned, perhaps also the oud notes in Habit Rouge EDP, along with LM Black Oud and vintage M7 as further possible candidates- two of these are admittedly not niche,...
Perhaps also LM Black Oud- covers most, nearly all the basics of the preferred notes mentioned
While not the newest choices and on the rather classic side, two Chanel classics, namely No. 19 EDP and Critsalle EDP are high-end, timeless choices of undeniable classiness and attractiveness, their...
Never noticed any similarity of TDH Eau Fraiche and any other fragrances than the ones from the TDH line- one of the best and most complex recent citrus fragrances available
- Yardley English Lavender and Panier des Sens Lavande Relaxante for the lavender note,
- Arlesienne by L`Occitane for a Mediterranean, summery, almost Grasse-specific take on...
Two possible suggestions from the same house: Ardenbeauty for a more formal, mature choice with a tastefully, moderately gourmand hint, Green Tea Bamboo for a smart-casual option that starts out...
L`Erbolario Accordo Arancio - one of the most pleasant both fresh and yet also powdery unisex citrus choices, even more impressive due to its EDP concentration and its almost unexpectedly affordable...
Thanks so much for the link- a inspirationally honest article, bringing a truly new perspective on fragrances
L`Erbolario Accordo Arancio- subtle, affordable orange notes EDP, with vanillic and woody notes as well while drying down
Also adding two of the Guerlain Aqua Allegoria line, namely Nerolia Bianca and Orange Magnifica, as well as Al Haramain Bloom- this particular one being one of the zestiest and surprisingly most...
Avon Black Suede- good quality leather notes, both in the powerhouse and the more modern, smart-casual range, still available for comparatively little cash, sparse applications already making its...
Avon Black Suede
Not a purchase, but was gifted a bottle of Avon Black Suede- quite pleasant, already enjoying it
Yves Rocher could also be a good place to start, especially the Fraicheur Vegetale, Un Matin au Jardin and Les Plaisirs Nature fragrances ranges
Have tested this one most likely in different batches (although unsure if any reformulations happened over this time, covered a quite extensive time interval, ranging from few weeks after its initial...
While having no idea about future trends (since almost anything is possible and also history, as well as fashion both repeat in this line of work), personally assuming that the discovery and/or first...
Trussardi Jeans Man- casual,
ADP Arancia di Capri- niche smart-casual,
Dior Dune pour Homme- while technically more of a fig-citrus combination, still an underlying orange...
Armani Eau pour Homme- incidentally also the ultimate personal favorite
As unusual as it may sound: a Hermes oud (just guessing, unfortunately not having even the slightest information from credible sources about this)
While uncertain about the hype, quite certain it is a good fragrance that can be had for a good price
Luckily, never got any unpleasant Christmas gifts, especially not in terms of fragrance (s)
In no particular order, among others from the current lineup:
Van Cleef&Arpels pour Homme, Lapidus pour Homme, Habit Rouge EDT and EDP, Rochas Man, Chanel Antaeus, Bogart pour Homme, Aramis Havana
Endymion is, to my nose, not just very powdery but also admirably succeeding at being so
(like a very expensive and credible rendition of high quality chocolate fondue, oddly but skillfully,...
By the way, noticed among quite a few best buy choices that Pino Silvestre is also mentioned: like most of the others on this list,a stunningly good fragrance available for an advantageous price
Mugler Cologne, especially if discounted, might fit this price bracket and effortlessly fits in as good unisex, "fresh out of the shower" choice
Would probably choose Pure Malt, closely followed by Ultra Male for a similar situation
Thanks for the fragrance impressions- certainly did cover a few great essentials of good fragrance houses
Possibly also going for the highest priced (but not necessarily best) fragrance releases ever and making sure that everyone finds out the price paid- almost irrespective of the fragrance but less so...
Eau Sauvage, quite closely followed by either Dior Homme Sport or Dior Homme Cologne as respectable second options
Also adding: Jacques Bogart pour Homme, Yves Rocher Cuir Vetiver, Gucci Rush
Armani Eau pour Homme
Knize Ten (considering that the last two are niche brands, smaller bottles likelier available for less money still do the trick)
Seconding Bois du Portugal, although unsure about how appropriate it may be as a night out fragrance
7 sprays of Habit Rouge EDT
Habit Rouge EDT
A fairly equal ranking between Bogart pour Homme, Azzaro pour Homme 2013 Summer Edition, Sartorial and Arden Man Sandalwood (non ever tested before, all quite enjoyable on the nose)
Almost anything by Guerlain and also Dior Homme
Gucci pour Homme II and, perhaps a more radical evolution, Rive Gauche pour Homme, marking a timid return of barbershop and/or even powerhouse male fragrances
Giorgio for Men
Preferring Eau Boisee, personally getting more complexity and a more mature, more elaborate style from this one
Owning and regularly using this fragrance, must say-personally speaking- that it has quite good value for a little price and more complexity than the presentation would first lead to believe, having...
To my nose,Bogart pour Homme, also cheaper and longer lasting, while projecting stronger as well
Although more straightforward on a mint, rather than eucalyptus, Cartier Roadster is still fairly close
From a personal viewpoint, at least Gucci Pour Homme and Bogart Pour Homme are worth considering and further exploring
Also, for some reason, both oud fragrances and perhaps even oud by itself, as an unadulterated, unmixed note remind me of chemicals used in photography and, by extension, of a photography...
Possibly also the more summery/sporty flankers of Tabac Original, as well as the rather sparse tobacco notes in Gucci PH II, Drakkar Dynamik and to an even lesser extent, in Very Valentino for Men
Diavolo by Antonio Banderas - nothing even remotely demonic or diabolical about this fragrance to my nose, however far likelier associations of unexplored, uncharted, slightly...
While both masculine and thus slightly fougere, the (hopefully) no so off-topic and technically quite unisex Grey Flannel could perhaps also be worth (re-) testing and considering
affordable- Zara Tobacco Collection
upscale- Xerjoff Oroville Tobacco
Bois d`Olivier et Cade
So far, had good experiences with Beautyspin (national subsidiary) and the German/Austrian retailer Manufactum
Never had a similar problem with the EDT version of this one, however was slightly underwhelmed by and likelier to develop olfactory fatigue from it, in comparison to the EDP
Preferring Essenza from their entire lineup
So far, had fairly good experiences with Twice and Eau de Iceberg Cedar
Great lineup already, also two further suggestions that smell good and also age-appropriate while not breaking the bank and a few classes above their price range in terms of stylishness, but also...
While having no experience with Aventus, actually owning and regularly using this scent- not bad for its price
Congratulations that you enjoyed a wonderful trip and impressive scent purchases and thanks for sharing the spectacular pictures with us- you look great in these marvelous and fascinating (at least...
Also adding Fahrenheit 32 and another Edition Blanche, however not the famous Chanel Allure flanker, but the less known Cerruti 1881 flanker with the same name
Would still have difficulties deciding between Joint by Roccobarocco, Spazio Krizia and the two Jacques Bogart fragrances Furyo and Force Majeure
