Having fragrances in your car is a bad idea. Unless you want them to turn bad faster
Habit Rouge EDT gave a headache and made me gag a little. Very dated, dusty, sickly smelling vanilla-citrus combo. And I like vanilla and citrus. Just not done this way.
12 sprays of Dior Leather Oud
Kitchen spices for me is rather my Serge Lutens Arabie, not LDDM nor AS
Agreed on all points
I enjoy it, and when I use it, I always mix/blend it with Bucheron Jaipur edp/edt. Just works perfect on me, this particular blend.
But with 400+ frags in my collection, I haven't used it for 6-8...
Both are nice scents, but hated by the Bond haters of course. Bleeker Street is the best though.
Versace Oud Noir Pour HOMME
Hermés Bel Ami Vetiver
YSL Body Kouros
Bond no. 9 Silver (Factory)
Bogart Ph is a great cheapie, but smells less well blended than Pure Havane does and I get the cherry tobacco vibe in the Bogart is more direct and synthetic smelling IMHO.
I get 8-10 hours...
King Kouros is a great option.
You're not helping the man by suggesting a nearly impossible to find discontinued fragrance ;-)
So a power lifter going for a record lift of 500 pounds smell feminine because he his hands will ooze from talcum and baby powder ?
Great Way of expressing it
It's certainly very nice. I own the 120 ml bottle, think there still is 110 ml left in it......I'd rate it 8.5/10
If you think this is sexism, you're firstly totally on the wrong track, secondly you're out of luck because you will never ever find a man that can comprehend you and thirdly...
In that order......
Sorry can't afford Richwood, so have yet to test it......
I have circa backup bottles of 35-38 of my bottles because I got a good price on them and like to have a somewhat wide selection of good designers to bring along with me to work, where I stay at a...
You take things a bit too seriously - if you can't even smile reading that comment, you need a new sense of humor to be honest - and no, that was not a joke !
I've heard people say urinal cake and medicinal. But sweatty balls......come on guys (& gals)
Kouros is a masterpiece. And only secure men can pull it off IMHO.
I'm now at 458 full bottles (50 ml and up to 250 ml, own as many 200 ml bottles as 50 ml bottles, the rest are in between these two sizes except one 250 ml flacon)
I have to give honourable mention to the two sport frags I wore in the early 90's:
Polo Sport & Hugo Boss Sport (green bottle with red cap I believe)
Two nice sport frags IMHO
I started at age 15-16 to collect frags. Already knew I was into it at age 14 when I asked my brother and teacher what they were wearing.
I owned 40-50 frags at age 16.
At first I was into it...
Great, only 9 left now ;-)
Much more interested in knowing where 2 persons can dine for $38 ?
In Denmark 2 beers and bottle of water is $38
Most of us hate a fragrance before it's even released if it has the word SPORT in the name. Just a fact.
Now that I'm closing in on owning 500 unique full bottles of frags (50 ml to 250 ml of...
Honestly this is not a clone of Aventus, more like a clone of Bond No.9 DOTCOM.
Its fa less complex than Aventus, it's just more thin and cheaper smelling to my nose than Aventus.
I don't get any...
Yes, just to see the amount of replies a ridiculous made up thread would get.
I'm saddened by the number of replies that thread got to be quite honest :-((
Sorry, this was just a thread made in the same spirit as a lot of other threads made here recently:
Match your watch to your frag
What frag to use during sex
What frag will go well with my...
I wonder if there is sound reason behind wearing a French made fragrance when dining at a French restaurant and an Italian made fragrance when dining at an Italian restaurant and so on ?
Holy Christ, the meaningless threads won't stop coming.....wait a minute I'll make a new thread called 'do you have to match the color of the fragrance juice with your suit of the day ?' and next in...
Forget it - I wore Swiss Army Original, because I work weekends this week, and aty at a hotel - so decided to bring my Swiss Army to kill my spare bottle of this (it has 8-10 ml left, which I easily...
I have the 200 ml bottle of Eternity, bought in 2011, I have tried layering it with Guerlain Vetiver, Commes De Garcons Vetiveru and Lalique Ebcre Noir with good success.
I use my Eternity quite...
Cialra Pure Shot Distance IntenZe with extra Cumin would be my choice
Byredo Black Safron
Viktor & Rolf Spicebomb
I own the ribbed 125 ml of the Vetiver and the new 100 ml flask of the Vetiver Extreme.
IMHO if you are into Vetivers, and can get a good price on both, both are worth owning.
The Extreme lack...
I own both, and enjoy both.
In my 418 bottle collection, I would rank both in my Top 100.
But for sheer quality and dry down my pick is Egoiste.
But Dior Homme is the more modern of the two,...
Agreed, this smells pretty close to my Royal Oud, not quite the same quality, but definitely the same vibe.
And it's cheap, but sold out almost everywhere online.
I added these to my ever growing collection today:
Prada Luna Rossa extreme
Cartier Roadster Sport
Cartier Eau Zeste de Soleil
Versace ph Oud Noir
I'm an oversprayer. Have always been so. Will always be so
My GF is going to Bangkok to visit her sister, unfortunately without me, since I have a busy work schedule in November and December.
But I want her to buy me a bottle of Bois D'Argent from the...
Hard to say Hednic, but Erolfa lasts 8-10 hours on me when combined with Molecule 01
I own more than 400 fragrances now - most are 100-125ml bottles, few are 50 ml and 75 ml and 200 ml bottles, and I don't have a signature scent.
Probably will take me 6-8 years to finish one of...
I layer this first and then use any of my lighter frags on top. Seems to boost projection and longevity on them all:
Armani Eau Pour Homme
LOL - great post
Wonder if anyone know what happened to Petruccij ? Don't think he got banned ?
Bond no. 9 Great Jones
Bond no. 9 HOT Always
I have a steady girlfriend in my life. And she is a bit nuts with perfume too (not as crazy as I am, but she owns 45 full bottles)
If anything I use these as before bed/car/room sprays:
Adg is still outselling Bleu this year....so no BLEU is not the adg of this generation.
I own both. My tobacco Top 5 list:
1. Santa Maria Novella a Tobacco Toscana
2. Parfums de Marley Herod
3. Phaedon Tabac Rouge
4. By Killian Back to Black
5. Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille
So which do you prefer ?
1. Serge Lutens Musc Koublai Khan
2. Dior Leather Oud
3. Xerjoff Al-Khat
Skip them both and buy a bottle of Serge Lutens Musc Koublai Khan. Awesome chick magnet scent. Wipes A_Z with both BDC & LA NUIT.

Amouage Epic Man Mixed with Kouros gave me 2 compliments from 2 young women today !!
Opium PH EDT
Honestly too many to mention, but:
Bond No.9 Silver Factory
Tom Ford Tuscan Leather
Amouage Interlude Man
CDG 2 Man
Just layered it today with Thallium Black. Awesome combo
My big brother used Lagerfeld to hit on the girls. This made me curious. I found out I loved scents as much as girls, much more than my big brother. The result was that I owned 30-40 full bottle...
Too strong, too weak, too sweet, too spicy, too this, too that.
I'd like to remind everyone, that most of us wear frags so we can smell ourselves. I wear frags for me, myself and I (and a little...
Not fragrancex nor fragrancenet, mate !
I would do it for free.
I have no problems using 8-10 sprays of 1 Million, just as long as I only spray 4-5 to my neck and head area and the rest to the torso.
I enjoy smelling of perfume and...
I find my Amouage Epic Man pretty similar to my Acqua di parma Colonia Intense Oud.
No different than many sole fragrances IMHO
Amouage Epic Man smells very animalic on me the first 1-2 hours, then turns into a lovely woody leather frag.
Profumi Del Forte - ambra Mediterranea,...
Must be an idiot, but my ebay search resulted in a 5 ml mini and a 2.5 fl.oz aftershave......
My signature fragrance from 1985 to 1988. Love it. Where in holy gods name can I get a full bottle of this juice ??
I must have a good imagination then, because I buy some frags solely with the intent of using them in mixes with other frags :
CDG incense Avignon
CDG 2 EDP
It smells similar to Chanel Allure Homme edition blanche in some stages of the dry down.
Also as Hednic mentions, Still Life by Olfactory is pretty similar.
But L'Humaniste is a great summer...
I layer and mix a lot of my frags, several times a week.
This evening I'm wearing a mix of YSL La Nuit and Lalique Encra Noir. Have received two compliments so far.
You have to experiment with...
I must be an old guy compaed to you, because I think the 80's was just yesterday :coolold:
I have owned a bottle of Dunhill For Men after shave, that is a splash bottle and which I gave to my...
Hednic, have you always kept your frags in the walk in temp controlled vault, or do you have some frags that are 30+ years old and were just stored in for instance closed cupboards/drawers away from...
The original by a mile. Libre is generic trash IMHO
I dislike rose frags but my favorites are:
Rose 31 by LE Labo
MFK Lumiere Noire
Declaration D'un Soir
The original. Libre is garbage IMHO
You want a cheapie masterclass rose fragrance that can beat or at least be on par with all the niche mentioned so far ?
Own both. Enjoy both. Quite a bit different. Same genre but quite different
Tabac Rouge by Phaedon. Contains notes of cinnamon, honey and ginger. Closely resembles Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille but at half the price.
Tabac Rouge is actually a milder more classy version of TV...
No. It's okay
My Duro sample was the most beastley frag I have ever worn. 20 hours longevity, 10 hours projection. Beating Interlude man and black Aoud
I wear most of my lighter frags including some of my sports frags BEFORE going to the gym. After the gym I hit the shower and use what ever frag from my collection I prefer. I know some detest...
I haven't bought a frag in 12 days now, but received BelAmi Vetiver and Tobacco Toscana as a gift 6 days ago :-)
I think I rocked all these with huge pride in the late 80's, all still masterpieces/great frags to my mind:
Paco Rabanne PH
Dunhill for Men
Btw did not know Tauer was gay.
I own these Armani, and list them according to my personal liking/ranking:
Acqua di Gio Essenza
Acqua di Gio
Eau Pour Homme
Eau de Nuit
I think he prefers niche over designers, so going the natural way might be his best bet ;-)
Try these things:
1. Layer several sprays on top of eachother. I do 3-4 sprays of the lighter frags in my collection, spray on the exact same spot. This prolongs the scent bubble sillage and...
My girlfriend loves a great deal of the fragrances in my collection - I hate to admit, that I no longer own a bottle of Aramis, but I used the heck out of Aramis deo sprays in the 80's when I was a...
Is this a joke ?
Roja Dove giving us advice on what fragrances women will like on man............
It's like having a guy without a drivers license and a car giving us advice on how to drive a...
Polo Green and Aramis at the bottom....not surprised at all.
Boucheron also very low - not surprised. I sold both my EDT and EDP of this scent......and I'm into the classics, just not Boucheron PH...
Bond No.9 HOT Always is your answer.
Put all the other frags aside, as HOT Always is copy of GG, but better made than the current formulation of GG, not as well made as the original GG though.
I don't smell any ink in EN.
I also own CDG 2, which has an ink note listed as part of the notes and it smells of ink to me along with many other things (CDG 2 is a materpiece in my mind, not one...
I rocked the original Givenchy Gentleman in the 80's, when I was a little boy. Loved it.
Nowadays I only really enjoy Patchouli as part of several notes in a fragrance. With that said, on occasion...
I own 200 ml of the Concentree version. I get 4-5 hours longevity.
Interlude Man might be in my overall Top 3 scents all time.
I had to wear it 3-4 times before I understood it.
And for me this is a scent only to be worn in late fall and during the...
All these 5 are equally great in my opinion:
If you like a spicy lavender freshie - get Ciel Man
If you like a peppery sour...
I have gone cold turkey several months during the last 12 months......
Not really that difficult. Just don't visit this board, and start to use the fragrances you already own.
And then do an...
