Trust me, you don't want that.
I have a GIT full bottle and I've found that 1 spray is far farrrr too concentrated. So I would like to go less. I'm thinking maybe I could transfer some into a tiny decant. Maybe the same size as...
I sprayed this on my pajama pants and I'm amazed by the wafts. This seems like it's too strong however.
I've received some compliments where one says I smell "good" but I think the best response I receive are just stares/looks.
Creed increases it's prices every year. What do you think?
I just wore 1 spray of VIW today. Yeah this seems like a good fit for me.I think I'll be 1 spray man for now on. The only fragrance in my collection that may require more than 1 spray is Straight to...
Where are you getting these samples?
1 spray on my bottom t-shirt and it lasts all day.
Is this book good? I'm reading it and theres a part that says you shouldn't bash other people sports teams. Hmmm . . . that's what makes sports fun though.
GIT is extremely potent. 1 spray max, imo.
I was once a 4-5 man, then became a 2 man, now I'm a 1 man. In other words, my bottles will never run out.
I'm surprised how much niche fragrances last and project.
I once used 1 spray of a Bond No 9 Queens from a sample decant like this:
Which do you fall into?
I have eczema so I spray on clothing to avoid any possible allergies.
I've been experimenting and I've realized that 1 spray is the magic number. So you think 1 spray on my bottom shirt is a bad...
This question in the past, but with time interest change.
What does Vetiver '48 smell like? Meaning is it a freshy like GIT and OV? or is it a harsh strong woody? or is it just a classic like Spice and Wood?
I stopped by the Le Labo store and shared my situation with one of the workers. I asked how many sprays for Santal 33 and he paused for a while and said it's a very strong fragrance. He said I should...
I sprayed on my skin for the first time today. 2 sprays of Aventus to the chest. I didn't notice much of a difference in performance. I could smell it on me throughout the day.
Maybe, maybe, I...
So 1 spray to the chest of Santal 33 and I should be safe on buses and trains? I've never sprayed directly on my skin before.
No, people were commenting on the fragrance on the bus. They were opening windows. It was definitely the Santal 33.
I had another slip up yesterday.
I sprayed Santal 33 twice on my undershirt and caused more casualties than my Tuscan Leather episode. I was riding the bus this time. And girls were sneezing and...
What was the top 10 on the list? I don't want to scroll through a 500 list.
I don't think ladies like MI on me. I get a vibe like it's too overpowering.
I'm starting to wonder if Bondno9 HTTP is a better compliment getter than Aventus. I havent worn HTTP yet but it smells amazing. And we all know how well BN9 projects.
For me its . . . .
Only thing I could recall is someone saying "Someone is wearing blah blah blah." She guessed it wrong and that...
I smelled it today and it's their most subtle fragrance. I couldn't really tell what I was smelling when I sprayed it on paper. Smells light and...
Wait, this fake bottle of Chanel Edition Blanche is getting you compliments?
Creed Jardin D'Amalfi
Creed Pure White Cologne
Bond No 9 ENY
Le Labo Bergamote 22
Atelier Cologne Cedrat Enivrant
I'm not sure how anyone can have a top 5 without a Creed listed.
Everyone is entitled to their opinion though.
You are Cologne Guy if you are habitually offending your peers space with your fragrance. Simple and plain.
For me, it's not longevity/projection issues. It's not the increasing price point (it sucks, but its not my biggest problem). It's not flankers. By far, it's the fact that I can buy a $275, below the...
Wow, this is tied up. Great poll.
I'm not sure the cleaners you go to, but the ones I've been to, tell me "we make no promises" and "maybe."
This is a good one. I smell some similarity between this and Light Blue. But the difference is the Creed fragrance is always lovely, fresh, and soft. However Light Blue smells synthetic and harsh.
Usually 2 sprays MAX (on my under shirt).
Great poll. Option 2.
Wearing fragrances is more about pleasing others. It's an accessory to me.
If you don't overspray, this is a really exhilarating scent. I wore this today (windy summer day) and I felt so fresh. EDY is the quintessential laundry...
It definitely wouldn't entice me.
What do you call this type of necktie?
Never buy a full bottle of a Bond No 9 fragrance (and I have 4 of them); samples are all you need. Summer is leaving so I don't know if getting VIW would be good timing.
What I find unappealing about both, is they have that harsh Macy's fragrance section smell (like after 5 minutes you want to exit to get fresh air). Which is funny because what I like most about...
At first I was going to say this smells like Rose 31. But I think I only notice that similarity for the first 10 seconds. This smells like an excellent fall fragrance.
Which fragrance do you like more?
Gourmands usually have amazing tops but disappointing dry downs.
I would put Riverside as #3. BN9 is good if you're a light sprayer. Heavy sprayers will be annoyed by most of their frags.
1) Bleecker Street
2) High Line
Props for your honesty.
I was going to buy this until I smelled Mugler Cologne.
Montale Intense Cafe
I have samples of all three. I've been trying them out. B22 doesn't strike me as a simple scent. It's a clean vetiver and it's very appealing. I don't quite understand R33 yet, it definitely morphs....
Out of these, which is best?
A guy can just test out a fragrance or ask their gf. There's just too many options.
I did a wearing of both. Day 1 I wore GIT and Day 2 I wore Cool Water. On Day 2, there were moments where I felt they smelled nothing alike and then moments where they smelled exactly alike. Cool...
Cool Water probably.
It's too feminine for me.
I wore this yesterday and for some reason it reminded me of MI.
First of all, do you like this fragrance?
Secondly, I can't believe how similar this smells to other fragrances I've smelled on women. Is there a popular fragrance out there that smells exactly...
Creed is on there twice, moderators you may want to edit that out.
Full bottles? I'd say 5.
Once you have 5 full bottles, if you still want more fragrances you can just collect samples/decants.
Today, a Creed SA at Saks handed a tester strip to me. I smelled it and was prepared to reveal the scent to show I'm a Creed expert. Surprisingly I didn't know the scent so I asked. I was shocked to...
LOL, through the humor I understand your point.
Ever since the Tuscan Leather (Leather Bomb on Train) moment I've been self conscious about my fragrance usage.
This morning I put 3 sprays of Virgin Island Water on my under t-shirt (I never...
Without reading the replies I'm sure this will cause a lot of contention on here.
I was at the Scotch and Soda store today shopping for clothes and as soon as I entered the store I noticed a fragrance booming all over. Kind of reminded me of how A&F blasts their fragrance in their...
Would you rather have one amazing scent that costs $300 or 4 above average scents at that same price?
I'm home now and I removed the shirt from my backpack and it's still projecting heavily. Thanks for the laughs guys. I was down about it earlier but you guys cheered me up.
Lmao, it wasn't my intention at all. I've noticed I've been offending some this month with my frags so I'll be making changes. This is a needed wakeup call for me.
I planned to be outside all day today and it seemed a bit chilly. I looked at my collection and realized that my full bottle of Tuscan Leather never gets worn. So today i wore it. I gave it 3 sprays...
4oz of Windsor?
No point getting the 250/500 flacon, right?
Yeah. Kind of like they did with Original Cologne and Pure White Cologne.
If it's the same juice no big deal.
I don't know if you're necessarily the "cologne guy." You put on 3 sprays. It's not like you bathed in it.
It's an office setting so your fragrance will project well, regardless.
I'm looking for something to wear for the office setting during the summer. Which is better Dior Homme (2005) or Dior Homme Intense (2011)?
It's pure greed. There's always going to be a bottle you don't have. There's always going to be a new bottle released.
I'm kind of embarrassed at the collection...
When I was riding the train I kept thinking the 2 ladies (in yoga outfits) next to me smell soooo good (in a natural way). When I exited the train, 45 minutes later, I continued to smell it and...
I'll try this.
Why stop there. I'd be interested in seeing Basenotes/Fragrantica/The Online Fragrance Community doing the same.
Bond No 9 chooses to go after the little man making videos and selling on ebay but doesn't bother fragrancenet and storefronts that sell their frags half off? Lmao, huh?
Can you post the Coney Island video on vimeo or some other site? It caused all the hoopla so I'm curious what was stated in the video.
Good memory. Sometimes I would like to smell fragrances together with other posters. But you said you found Set Sail disgusting so that explains it.
Those who think Coney Island is gross, what does it smell like to you? And do you think CK Summer 2014 and Set Sail St Barts are gross too?
Oh and if you guys want to boycott Bond No 9, I will not...
Wow, I wore Coney Island today. :sad:
It's diffusion. Whenever one (who is wearing a fragrance) walks into a store/office they usually immediately get compliments/noticed. It's the movement of high concentration to low concentration....
If there is 100% proof that fragrancenet sold a fake fragrance, would that deter you? That's where basenotes posters split. Some will say "that's proof that they're aren't credible." Some will say...
I've noticed that niche stores nowadays are very generous with giving away multiple free samples.
I plan on wearing it to an outdoor event. Very casual setting.
What's your take? Can one wear it out casually on a spring or summer day?
Supposedly she's a huge fan of Carnal Flower.
Did you like it?
Do you feel its too feminine? Can you wear this during the spring/summer? Does this closely resemble pink sugar?
Yeah Dougczar, I understand that asking these questions can be a rabbit hole.
I got 4 full bottles from BN9. I'm not hater I'm just bothered that they don't have 1 fragrance where they focused on creating quality ingredients or a masterpiece. Maybe Bleecker Street? :undecided:...
Bond No 9 - I'm currently wondering what makes BN9 a niche house. The only thing about them thats niche is their price point and high concentrations. Why do we still group them with niche?
Interesting. Does it bare a strong similarity to Aquolina's Pink Sugar?
