Edit - what Ciprian said. :D
I agree with all of that, exactly sums up my view on Parfumerie Generale too and his other countless sub/sidelines - except for the guy which I don't know at all. I recall he once said somewhere...
I got these for $25 shipped, lol.
Got a full sample set of this line which I haven't approached yet, but I gave a quick sniff to one of them and it seemed nice (I think it was that Byzance one).
Oh, yes, that too for me! Not sure if I heard about it from david or badarun first but nonetheless, +1 for that.
I owe countless of fantastic discoveries to Alfarom and Darvant above all - Bois d'ascèse, CdG Black, AbdesSalaam Attar's stuff, Rochas Lui, Narciso for Him, most of Etro's, Costume National 21,...
I love these threads were a guy writes a self-conclusive random thought and then everybody's clueless on how to reply 'cause there's nothing to reply to exactly but still they want to. So anyway - go...
Gucci Sport is utter crap so I agree with you. Pour Homme and Envy; give them time. Homme II is nothing special indeed. Have you tried Rush for men?
I think they're only distributed in Italy for the moment but try to contact them - they're friendly and I guess they may send the stuff abroad too (at least the sample set!).
You mean Italian crap? There's waaaay more of that. Francesca dell'Oro, Coquillete Paris (Paris = Naples), Gabriella Chieffo, Giulietta Capuleti, UèrMì... :D
Not sure if they're underrated, but surely more than ten among the "less praised ones" - here's some:
Cartier - Must de Cartier pour Homme
Carven - Homme
Lancome - Miracle Homme
Paul Smith -...
Here's my bottle-worthy picks. :o
The clear-sided bottle is the second formulation (= reformulation) of M7, the final before the discontinuation. From 2002 to 2007 it's always the same version and pretty much nothing changes in my...
I gave up.
For some counter-intuitive mechanism, I tend to wear darker & bolder stuff when I feel particularly joyous. Like Comme des Garçons Black or Bois d'ascèse.
Leather Oud for the afternoon.
Just got Dior Homme Intense (don't know and don't care of the batch).
I think they're not available yet, I suggest you to write them to have some information about the release (and maybe get the samples too).
That would be a fantastic deal!
What if it was? :D I mean, you said you like it, what are you waiting for.
SOTE - the Intense version.
The drydown of Body Kouros ("early formulation").
Bump! New ones added.
I think that was the store someone here once claimed to have some non-specified almighty vintage Creedz on display. Did you see some in the shop?
Recently I got a bunch of mainstreams: Declaration & Declaration Essence, Concentré d'orange verte, Kenzo Homme, Kenzo Air Intense, L'Eau d'Issey Intense, Body Kouros, Bulgari Black. Encre Noire.
Nothing special but really nice. By the way, "chamomile", yes, I do get that too.
Exercising my parasitic skills - once again thanks to the excuse "the fragrances aren't on Basenotes yet so here's my take on them..." :D
I am so intrigued! Like an idiot, I missed the chance to test these at Esxence tradeshow...
The website works for me! If you select Français on the home page you are redirected to the contents (I guess it isn't available for other languages). I haven't seen such graphics & layouts since the...
What he said! Totally agree.
I like it and find it perfectly unisex, surely not the most virile scent around though.
Italy - formerly Schiapparelli Pikenz produced them (100% Italian despite the name...), now First Milano makes them - still a division of Schiapparelli group.
Disagree. Different shades of disgust - saying one doesn't enjoy a thing isn't the same as saying it's nasty shit. We're grown up people and I think we can safely throw in some rude words from times...
+1. Just adding White Aoud maybe!
All-time favourite in any vintage formulation, barely decent and kind of depressing in the current one (still better than many others though).
Tried this the other week, really good and well-made. Fresh and juicy. Less "opulent" than other Vermeire's. Boring as hell.
I sympathize with you Stache. There's much more lunatics out there than we think sometimes. Just a couple of months ago something similar happened to me, although it was the first time ever for me in...
Yes, this is really good, one of the very few niche scents I didn't became tired of yet... that sparkling zesty booziness is addictive.
Bump! New bottles added.
If anyone's interested here is my feedback about this line (I hate to post my blogposts, I do that just because the fragrances aren't on Basenotes yet and I know it may take months for that...)
LOL this is fantastic Grant. :D
I agree with pretty much all that you wrote, this year I was there also in the 2 first days for press & business and the things weren't really different - the only difference was that there was less...
Terre d'Hermès tonight! Comforting.
It depends. My wardrobe is kind of split in half - you may assume "teacher dad" & "junkie son" live in my house. Basically I've a formal wardrobe which is nearly all made of designer / bespoke...
I just noticed this new channel pop up there, I am quite sure it wasn't there before:
But I can't access it. That made me curious. Is it something...
I haven't read much about this but I think this brand hasn't much to do with music except for a generic "rock'n roll" inspiration... the guy was (or still is) a musician but there isn't that same...
I normally use 2 fragrances per day too.
For the moment I think they have no distribution yet, you can simply write them a mail via their website ( http://www.rubiniprofumi.com/ ).
If anyone's interested, here's my take on this fragrance:
Eau de Gloire, Cuir Ottoman, Musc Tonkin for me!
Frapin's Passion Boisée.
Don't think so.
P.S. Atramental is really nice.
I've been personally offered to buy bottles with a heavy discount - distributor's price, basically - from a brand, but I am not sure whether that would be officially allowed (I doubt that). I mean...
I had the EXACT same feeling! Just to be polite and do a bit of conversation I tried to comment the fragrances while sniffing them, she looked at me as if I was a talking Muppet, just showing me that...
A lovely and passionate guy, and a terrifically solid scent. I really wish him to get some international distribution!
One of the standouts for me at Milan's tradeshow Esxence. A really solid and grounded concept revolving around a sort of "contemporary gothic" inspiration (I mean the Medieval concept of gothic),...
Nope, the brand is "Pierre Guillaume". I tried them all today - a surprsingly solid line.
Remarkable People is actually far from being remarkable, sadly. :D It's basically a short-lasting and inoffensive fizzy citrusy thingy, quite far from the brand's style and aesthetics (and that's the...
Actually I have to admit the three new ones by Le Galion aren't that bad, especially an extrait I have not been told the name of. Cuir is nice but it kind of reminded me of Aigner's Black (some...
I have a tester of Tobacco Vanille I got in Italy which looks like those below. After several and thorough side-by-side comparisons with a Tobacco Vanille bottle on display at 10 Corso Como, Milano,...
Le Galion perfumes are obnoxious, they did a terrible job with their "heritage". There's surely better exhibitors to give your time to. :D
I agree, the vintage version is incredible, but the concept of this scent is so good that even the current one is really nice!
Essenza del Tempo by Trussardi, Rochas Lui!
JS Man ("Pure) from 1981, Feeling Man, Scent 79, Background, vintage Sun (for women) and JS Sander Man from 2007 are all more than worth owning.
Me too, I know the guy and I am pretty sure the stuff is legit, Many here bought from him. The stuff is just ultra cheap - simply because he gets bottles directly from some distributor, I guess...
I find it fantastic, albeit too expensive - I waited for a nice deal (half bottle, half the price :D)
I think I agree with this, if I got the point right. I got several vintage bottles which I could have kept if I would have wanted to, but I sold them instead precisely for that reason. I can't stand...
It's not niche, not at all - Caraceni is serious quality, David, please. :D It's just discontinued, that's why it is hard to find. Normal-average perfume shops stocked it (in Italy, at least) - they...
I haven't tested this properly yet, but at a quick sniff, I don't like it. First because it's again just another variation on a chypre structure, and honestly I am starting to find this "style" more...
That's still one of my favourite masculines EVER, fantastic scent. Bravo! And welcome!
Didn't know one of my favourite actors made a cologne - must have it, thanks for bringing this up!
Looking for used bottles of Santal Noble, either partial or full. Testers/unboxed bottles are perfectly fine too.
I am open to swaps with most of the fragrances in my sales thread, and a couple of...
Easy and clean.
The only information I found is that that is an older address of Evaflor
(several records, e.g. http://www.societe.com/societe/evaflor-328581814.html > scroll down the...
Sorry, working day :(
I'll be there too - nothing in particular makes me curious, it's just free and a bunch of subway stops away from my place. :D
Nonetheless - pardon the "promotion" - a stand I'd suggest you in...
Not sure why this matter is always treated like a matter of "opinions" while all these terms have their own specific meanings.
Is it because of the tattoos? Sure I would. To be honest I would be more intimidated by someone walking a dog with no shoes.
