Lonestar Memories for me today. When it`s cold outside this one performs brilliantly
Happy birthday to you Kumquat!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If I knew before I would have worn THIS:
But too late - it`s been a really busy week, just no time for a good BN session, so just this:
after one week of Mitsouko
... that stuff is so good :-) :-)
The beautiful, beautiful, beautiful, badly misunderstood & funny Missoni Aria.
Balafre (just because I`ve heard a lot about it and the notes sound so good - have never tried it)...
Thank you for posting, gentlemen! I think I understand both of you very well. It`s okay, but it`s nothing very special, at least to me.
Hey dear Red! I`m not too much into D. Adventure - but this is solid aromatic oriental soft-fougère stuff. I`d describe it as mostly a grapefruit, woody-amber, Iso-E Thing; orange peel with nutmeg &...
I found this Opium EdT recently. It`s 60ml EdT, smells definitely Opium, GREAT middle & base even if some very top notes have faded a little. I know my grandma once had a VERY...
Fleurs de Male is the only one of this series I enjoy.
Found these flankers on my recent trips:
Both smell quite nice, I prefer the Aramis.
There`s a FB of Versace Metal Jeans (strange, hm?) in...
Missoni - finally, a dream.
Davidoff Adventure Amazonia - well, it stood there, so ... also got the tester ...
Royal Secret - had this long time ago ... a real sleeper, I find...
My gut feeling tends to something edgy but not too complicated: Habit Rouge (if you like it a bit powdery), Pino Silvestre (as something crisp), CDG 2 Man (a light incense) - or just try a patchouly,...
there`s a shop in my area where I found this obscure Davidoff: Adventure Amazonia. It`s nearly impossible to find anywhere & was a limited Edition. The only one I found was 199 Euros...
I`ve been on a nice vintage and semi vintage trip:
Calvin by Calvin Klein - 50ml, EdT-edition (sadly not the cologne ...)
Aramis Life - 50ml - short...
Hi there!! Sand Aoud is one of the most stunning scents I`ve ever smelled. I`d describe it as a spicy oriental scent with an unconventional but appealing blend of maybe saffron, pepper & ginger (not...
Hi Folks! Normally my limit is about 100 Euros. If so I have to ADORE this scent. But there`s stuff like L'Artisan Timbuktu, the Tauers, Bandit & my 30ml of Mitsouko Parfum that I will always backup,...
... this little thing is just great !
Most of what I would suggest already has been mentioned. But there`s still the wonderful ...
... Gainsborough G-Man ...
Lion: Tauer - Carillon pour un Ange & Lonestar Memories; Mancera - Sand Aoud; YSL - Opium pour Homme EdT; vintage Salvador Dalí; Caron - vintage Narcisse Noir Parfum; Guerlain - vintage Samsara EdT....
Stuff like Aromatics Elixir or Mitsouko (yawn ...!) by sure & nearly every older Guerlain, Champs-Elysees excluded.
My favourites are: A drop of Kenzo Jungle L'Élephant, Bandit of course, vintage...
Dovo Black Star, Mühle Badger Brush, Valobra Soap, Alum as AS, Serge Lutens "Ambre Sultan".
Hi :-) Thank you for the suggestion. I haven`t tried Caligna yet but it sounds delicious. Will definitely try on my next trip downtown.
90ies Mitsouko Eau de Parfum & a dab of current Parfum
Sandalwood scents, my new Samsara vintage. Italian houses, niche and vintage (if my Girl, who`s italian, manages to find some). The new Tauer PHI - Rose of Kandahar; some scents by Perris Monte Carlo...
Like or dislike - one.
Like or love - maybe more.
mostly this one in winter
Kenzo Jungle Elephant - shower - now this one as SOTE
... this is something that really should be printed on little cards for SAs. So easy put and so right! ;-)
As uplifting fragrances from my collection I`d choose:
Hermès - Eau de Gentiane...
BRILLIANT choices IMO ;-)
Hi! I`d second the Tauer suggestions. LADDM to me is something like an elegant masculine goldstandard. There`s also Vetiver Dance which is dry grapefruit, mown hay & the darkest, earthyest vetiver....
Recent Magie Noire (Lancôme) is also very nice; vintage is unaffordable. I also remember the old Lagerfeld KL EdT as a wonderful scent in an oriental kind of way. A new Interpretation of that...
I bet she`ll love Mitsouko. AE and Mitsouko have quite a bit in common, even if they`re on the other hand completely different. I`d go with a 7.5 ml of Mitsy Parfum. This one gets even better with...
24, Faubourgh by Hermès (dry Jasmine-chypre, nice EdT) or vintage Caron, maybe En Avion (spicy woody-floral, wonderful parfum)
... it`s been a while since I had the last one of these in my hands. An EdP, the old cherries, clove & cinammon bomb.
My all-time favourite.
Alfarom, maybe. Really. At first I also enjoy his insightful reviews. Second: I recently wondered about his Odriu-insider-resaerch on Peety. Third: I LOVE italians - as my baby is one ... :-)
hmmmh .... our dearest Hednic at first bought the French houses, then he`s going to buy the Italian ones, the Spanish, English ... ;-) No idea. REALLY curious .... can you tell a country?
Hi, nice to read this! I know we share some Passion about Guerlain classics. (There`s no such thing as matured Mitsouko Parfum). But this Samsara is REALLY big fun. But it needs even more time to...
Good morning! Today my new baby. Moderately spritzed it`s just as nice as it gets.
So finally this is it: My vintage Samsara EdT - and it is stroooooong .... !
This Georgio is certainly a big dissappointment to you. Professional shops shouldn`t act like this.
I dropped in here because I just saw some locals of my area poppping up. This is my experience...
A beautiful Shiseido Feminite du Bois (original) EdP, 50ml, slightly used is on it`s way to my home
The brilliant Bandit, pre-recent.
Yeah, welcome! I thought of Blue Stratos, you might Google it. But SORRY, forget my Picture. I didn`t read "Semi Circle" at first (now can`t remove this f ..... g thumbnail pic :-)
The oudy-smell I like the most is Mancera Sand Aoud which comes close to a masterpiece. It`s just a nicely orchestrated oud with saffron/cumin, a fruity rose, earthy patchouly, woodsmoke, etc. The...
Hi there! Watermelon is simply disgusting. Bah! :-)
(in a perfume. I like eating a slice in summer.)
I`d get them fast if they smelled good. How does the box look? There`s a LARGE identifying Guerlain thread around in here. Don`t know the name excactly. The search function will help you. Author is...
Some good suggestions. I`d also get myself a nice little Pino Silvestre. This is aromatic and fresh as it gets (but NOT an aquatic) - and a classic that will get you the perfect...
... that`s the point. Had an account (maybe still have?) on the german version some years ago. Didn`t like most of the talk there. The reviews seemed like ... well ... I don`t know ... sorry ......
Ì want to get myself a traditional japanese Kamisori for wet shaving. Is anybody of you using one? How is the shave with it? How different is it to straight razors? Is it difficult...
JBH at his best! Love it! Greetz from near the Odenwald!
Hi, I own about 100 bottles - and I use to rotate maybe 30 to 40. Some more frequently than most of the others. It`s mostly an intuitive thing. There are scents (I think 10+/-) that I wear nearly...
A nice shave & Timbuktu
Hell, guys, you manage to make my mouth watery on this. Didn`t pay much attention to it, actually remember it as a little nondescript. Will definitely try it again.
Such lists are always fun, so here my ten favourites (right now in no particular order/could change/there are many more)
Paco Rabanne pour Homme Vintage
Oh that`s lovely, THANKS lpp :-)
Really it`s almost mysterious - whenever I got to try one of Andy`s scents it was love on first sniff. I tried most of the scents and only have my problems with Reverie au Jardin which feels like a...
Sitting at home with a bad flu and just having no desire for any kind of smell. I have this right now and it`s REALLY HORRIBLE.
Eau de Gentiane Blanche (Hermès) & Pino Silvestre might also be worth a try
Morning ! I have a severe flu, possibly the first one since 25 years. Not easy to pick a scent ...
My mature vintage Paco Rabanne is the closest to the Fougère genre in my collection.
By the way: Anybody knows the one in the picture?
I bought this one instantly after sampling. It is much more refined thal Luna Rossa. It is no big surprise but a well-made everyday scent that smells a bit like a simpler Lonestar Memories (believe...
one of my absolute favourites
+ 1 or maybe get a bottle of discontinued but still widely available Anthracite. A wonderful fougèr-ey spicy oriental with fruity & strong peppery notes.
a nice day today. So a nice-day-scent - Original vintage Paco Rabanne pour Homme
Dior Jules for me this evening
... this was my first thought when reading this here.
And if you`re lucky, you`ll find a 200+ ml for the same price as a 50ml niche (or even cheaper). The juice of my one has turned brownish - and...
Don`t like Karl. But the scents are okay and I got those two as a present - so why not? :-)
Dovo Black Star
Semogue Boar Brush
Brillantina di Tricofilina
Tom Ford for Men ( one of my recent favourites for evenings at home - simple, classic, niche & decent...
The wonderful Mancera Sand Aoud
Hi there! I have similar problems. In some threads like old-school SOTD I just cannot "go advanced" - the feature is missing.
And same to me: I also would love to use my computer-pics. Thanks!
Even later to the Party. ALL THE VERY VERY BEST, hedonist!
... the light is s..t - the rest is fine.
Dovo Black Star Razor, Muehle Badger Brush, Castle Forbes Cedarwood & Sandalwood, Alumn, Mancera Sand Aoud
Vintage Zino Davidoff
I`d go with something interesting & slightly weird and would use it sparingly: Breath of God, Lonestar Memories, Yatagan ... something like this.
:-) ... it was only once, it was some Tauer scent, it was a lovely moment back then. (So this post might be not for reference :-):
I met my beloved one on a parking lot in deep countryside. Back...
Yeah, kumquat, yours is a very nice & sensual approach. Walking around in a house like you`re mentioning where you meet an old Fabergé here, there a Caron, elsewhere a L'Origan or some of those...
Has anyone else had this problem?
I can`t "go advanced" in the Old-School SOTD while others can. I`m working on a new notebook so I don`t think it`s an issue of my own settings (and...
I bought Sand Aoud on first sniff. To me it`s stunningly good. At the same time I see only a very small resemblance to LADDM, if any. In opposite I think LADDM is more refined. But I like the dark,...
SOTE - Opium pour Homme, green Proraso, Muehle Badger Brush, Eicker & Söhne blade (the ugly one), alum
I don`t have a visually adorable collection - but some nice "youngtimers". I store them in my late grandma`s apartment under the roof in the fridge she owned and together with some vintage...
The good old Comme des Garcons 2 Man as SOTD and yesterday`s SOTE.
Missoni Aria - SO beautiful creamy woody-floral cashmeran stuff. I own some bottles and I love it on my girl. On me it`s just not half as nice.
There are quite a few.
The one I wear the most: (Vintage) Mitsouko/my Tauers (Lonestar Memories/Incense Extrême/Carillon pour un Ange)
The ones I`d love to own but possibly never will: Amouage...
:-) This is why I came here ... precisely. The closest resemblance.
The drydown of Lonestar Memories is VERY similar to Prada Luna Rossa Extreme. I own both, love the former and like the latter....
Kenzo Jungle Elephant for the last day on earth - as a reminder of probably the best day :)
My oldest are a 240 ml splash of Paco from the early 70ies; some Caron Extraits from the 70ies and un unopened, still sealed "Parfum Juchten de Melquiades di Casti" my grandma owned till the 40ies....
Uncounted multiple (many many) sprays of nearly everithing I own. I`m sure I don`t overspray in everyday life, even if I sometimes go maybe a bit heavier than average. But I like to soak myself with...
Yatagan, Merkur Bakelite Travel Razor, the wonderful ugly-looking Semogue Boar Brush, Acqua di Parma shaving cream and an italian grooming essential, Tricofilina Brillantina
Bandit was my best. Strangely followed by Yatagan - which I seemed to already know from my 80ies childhood but didn`t realize what it was.
And ìt`s like hedonist said, I already read about them...
Whow - there are so much wonderful scents in here, you certainly won`t need mine. But okay:
Tauer - Lonestar Memories
Knize - Knize Ten
Piguet - Bandit (if Piguet is considered niche)
Wearing Lagerfeld this evening. Haven`t tried this bottle since about 10 years. Didn`t really like it back then - now I find it really good. Strange.
Mitsy parfum, Acqua di Parma shaving cream, Semogue boar brush, Eicker Blade
Good morning Folks - back on the Train with Lonestar Memories (and still one little lonesome star ... :-)
