    Tried l'occitan and bang today:

    L'occitan - too much lavender for me, made me feel a bit sickly really.

    Bang - pretty much spot on. Although I can echo an earlier posters comment that the...

    Oscar and beat are on their way to me.

    Can't find a uk stockist for piper nigrum, does anybody know of one? This sounds perfect.

    15 minutes? And after that what does the smell consist of?

    Also ordered burberry beat.

    Will try bang this weekend hopefully.

    So, Bang seems to be dividing opinions if it sweet or not but one thing that stands out is that it is peppery. With that, it's on the list.

    I've ordered some Oscar which was dirt cheap.

    Brilliant everyone. I've wrote them all down and I'll see where I can get them.

    The l'occitane ph sounds quite nice and has some good reviews.

    Oscar is cheap on cheap smells so may be worth a...
  6. What has a strong black pepper note but not sweet?

    Hi all,

    I'm using and love the molton brown recharge black pepper shower gel.

    I've bought the same edt but I'm not impressed by it, just doesn't smell the same on my skin.

    So, what has a...

    Today I bought Cartier declaration d'un soir, it really is as good as the reviews say. Different without being offensive. Safe but a step away from the crowd.

    I must say though it pales beside my...
  8. Re: Can't believe it, the best fragrance shop I've ever been to, right under my nos

    YES!! The Royal Perfumery.

    Only downside is they don't stock Chanel but plenty of other places do.

    They are trying to go towards collectors and one-off fragrances and had quite a few of the...
  9. Can't believe it, the best fragrance shop I've ever been to, right under my nos

    Excuse the pun!

    I live in Wigan, uk and thought the best fragrance shops were basically in Manchester or other big city centres.

    That was until I walked past an old fragrance shop that I've...

    Same here!

    My wife goes mad at me. I always placate her with a bottle of something or some more shoes but next time I'm taking a quiet day off and spending it in John Lewis.

    I have legend and granted it does have a ring of fierce to it but there's just a bit more depth to fierce. Something I can't quite put my finger in but it smells sexier.

    My wife loves it too and...

    Mtnbkr123 - sorry mate for sounding overly offensive in my post its just that's the emotion 1 Million evokes in me. I smell it nearly everywhere I go when I'm out and it's always over sprayed.

    PR 1 million underrated?

    Over used, over sprayed and over every teenager more like.

    I have a virtually unused bottle of it here and can't bring myself to wear it. It reminds me when joop first...

    I haven't tried everything yet I know but I like fierce enough to cancel nearly every order I had for other frags.

  15. Chosen my daily/signature frag...you're going to slate me!

    Hey all,

    So, after testing and buying loads of frags recently I couldn't settle on the one daily frag, the signature scent that I can't reach over to get to another.

    Well, I have now.

    It's...

    Thanks Brian. So it's pretty much a no for the uk then.

    Looks like I'll have to take a "sneaky" day off and spend all day frag testing!

    Hi all,

    Really getting in to the fragrance collecting now but I'm finding it hard to justify 30 minutes in fragrance shops when out with my family.

    Question is, are there any fragrance shows...

    Thanks everyone, all the scents mentioned go on a big list to be tested when I go on a scent splurge in a few weeks.

    I just need to buy a TF fragrance though, don't know why, I just do.

    I can't believe how good it is. I tried it before I started getting into fragrances and couldn't justify the price. Mainly because by then I hadn't tested enough others to realise just how good it...

    Is it long lasting? I don't want to re-apply during the day.

    D&G frags are terrible for longevity on me, I get 4 hours absolute max, no matter how much I put on. Allure is quite good but best so...

    Recommend me a Tom Ford fragrance

    I'm really expanding my fragrance collection now, just added Aventus (amazing, unequaled) and A&F Fierce (love it, stronger Mont Blanc Legend) but I like the sound of Tom Fords line of fragrances.

    But, that may be cancelled as I've just ordered some Aventus. I had a basket of stuff saved on a website and it was...
