2009 was a top ten for me
but the newer ones deserve the new name really.... it just doesn't compare to 2009 version in my opinion

2009 was a top ten for me
but the newer ones deserve the new name really.... it just doesn't compare to 2009 version in my opinion
I have purchased a few different oils from them and can confirm they were either hit or miss. For instance the aoud safran/alike oil had promise in the beginning but 5mins into it became very...
Everyone is different with different taste.
My lovely wife is 29 years old and does not like aventus on me, but loves GIT. Who would of thunk?
We are celebrating our 10 year anniversary very soon...
I may be one of the few that actually prefer clean for men compared to the others mentioned in this thread.
It's a raspberry soapy fragrance that smells nice and inoffensive. I've had a few very...
With Mi spraying clothing gets a better result opposed to spraying skin.
Avignon and wonderwood my 2 favorites of what I've tried
Imaginary authors: Cape heartache
Skin tested to last over 48 hours on myself !!
Can't do more than one
I would sample pure malt it's worth a try. Very nice strong gourmand
The only Mugler that I own and love!
I was bored by santal 33. It stays the same throughout its life but it has good longevity on the skin. My wife didn't like it at all
I own lattafa night aoud.... It's pretty similar to byredo oud accord except not as luxurious smelling and a little more soapy vibe to it and less spices. It's nice for 30 bucks
Lattafa also have...
Really depends on how it was stored... I have same year SMW with a S01 at the end instead of the K in your instance...
Mine is very good crisp long lasting with a lower amount of ambergris which I...
To me it smells a bit like a fruity tide detergent rubbed under a sweaty persons armpit. Sorry that's just what I get after the initial top notes
I vote for Bond no 9 as well!! They try to copy successfully stuff and fail horribly!
For the amount of fragrances I've tried from them"35" x the percentage of them that I loved... Which was 0
Miles apart to me
2009 windsor is in my top 5 favorites of all time and I've sampled a thousand scents or so .
I wouldn't say that it's overrated at all.
Not as natural smelling as GIT but it does project better than GIT
That being said I prefer GIT. In the past I received two negative feedbacks in the same day wearing chez bond.
And I've never...
Black orchid was a scrubber for me.
No way in a million years would that ever work for me it smelled very feminine and dark.
Better suited for women no doubt
My wife didn't like aventus the most out of all too
Honorable mentions to micallef homme aoud and opusVI
Absolutely horrible - Coney Island , Silver factory , West Side, China Town, New Harlem, Sag Harbor, Great Jones and some others
Just ok- Wall Street, Hamptons, Bleecker, riverside drive, N.Y oud,...
Try "cape heartache" by imaginary authors also a "city on fire"
And "lithium" by nu_be also "carbon"
I'd just go with GIT although it's pretty expensive... It's very good quality summer scent and quite people pleasing.
Actually wearing this all week I get in a mood for it and it's all I want for...
Cool water or Dior homme Eau
Usually when it come to these type smellalikes you get decent quality for the price you pay for it. Which isn't a bad deal if you can't afford or don't want to splurge for the actual scent that it's...
I completely agree with this person. Spot on
Also...Scent of peace for Him is basically a nuclear cloud of synthetic notes blended horribly together.
Malle Carnal flower
B9 New Harlem
B9 Silver factory
T,F Black Orchid
Sorry man... The bastards that manufacture and produce those do a good job with the packaging and bottle looks... but honestly it only bears a slight resemblance to the real thing when you spray it...
I bet you that those bottles are probably missing lot numbers on the bottom lip... Am I right? Should be a etched lot number on the backside of the bottle on the base lip. Etched in the glass or...
I'm sorry but that label looks fake to me there is a bunch of those fake 11z01 labeled ones going around really cheap on eBay. I'm 98% certain that is not real.
I know this might sound crazy... But my grandmother has a perfume that smells very similar to this just a bit more synthetic so....maybe I can't get past that association or something.
Smells expensive but also smells like something I don't wanna smell of. Too fem in my personal opinion
Doesn't last very long on me and didn't really care for it
Spice and wood is pretty similar to Malle's French Lover except without the fruity top notes S&W has
I've sampled this a few times and felt like it was another dime a dozen kinda fragrance... Not something I really care for
It's a good safe reliable choice...kind of like a Lexus
No change for me ... One of the most dissapointing houses I've ever come across.
I don't have any in my collection and don't want any either. Anything new they come out with I'm not gonna waste my...
I've decrypted the secret message....it took me a long while but this is what I found in that special coding.... It says sell all of your current collection and blind buy all of their offerings and...
How is longevity and projection on this one? Thanks
White aoud Montale when I first sampled it I got a very medicinal vibe that scared me away for a while and eventually my sample came back out of the drawer for another try and the second time I...
I've tried to tell him he sprays too much and he's killing the ozone layer... But he doesn't listen to anyone. If I don't supply him with any then his last resort is to buy something from the dollar...
Hey guys I need some ideas
My step father loves wearing cologne and he knows I have a nice stash of expensive fragrances... He's always asking me if I don't use any of the ones I have and in the...
I bought a new flacon off of eBay when it first came out years ago I think I paid $275... It was a blind buy that didn't perform well on my skin at all so I sold it to make a quick buck. It smells...
Yeah you may never see a 30 ml creed fake In your lifetime.
The scumbags that make their paychecks by producing fake creeds try to maximize profits by making bigger bottles such as 4oz... I've never...
Don't know which batch you have but my 2010 batch sucked!
my 2011 much better and my 08 batch was the best creamiest ambergris long lasting
I feel somewhat guilty when I'm buying a new bottle of expensive cologne ... I guess the better the deal I get on that bottle the less guilty I feel. But then I quickly remind myself that my...
If I had 55+ bottles "$8000+" in my collection it would be overwhelming at certain times to figure out what I wanted to wear on which day... So me personally I like to keep about 20 different flavors...
Oud immortel is the best they offer in my opinion
I had a sample I used a few months back and the notes sounded good to me but on my skin aoud melody turned sour and so I scrubbed it off.
Not a good experience infact one of my least favorites from...
I dunno if that's the first one or just one of the first but I own a 4oz of that one and it is so good! The 2010 k batches kinda sucked k01 was decent but k02 kinda sucky and k03 just sucky.
I can almost guarantee you that you probably won't get a better offer than that for a used 4oz bottle.
X02 is way overrated and so is Z01. My favorite batches were the first ones from 2010.
10+ hours and 5 sprays on a shirt in the same spot those 5 times...maybe but on my skin it's just a skin scent in about 6 hours....I get 8 hours from SMW.
I'd Skip over spice and wood doesn't have any longevity "worse than SMW"
Skip over 1849 millesime too it's so expensive,hard to find and extremely feminine to me
Jardin di amalfi is just ok for the...
I wear Al Sharquiah oil every now and then I like it... It smells very much like micallef aoud homme.
My sister didn't like the smell and my wife said it was funky but she doesn't like many frags of...
While himalaya is a high quality scent.. I get like a cold soapy vibe from it that is off-putting for my nose
himalaya is at the bottom of creeds ranks just like royal water
Windsor is one of the better projecting creeds in my opinion...definitely not quite as projecting as aventus "not many are though"
Windsor is the one I would choose from the list.
Just a really...
Malle Musc ravageur. Why did I save up so much money for this crap? I sold it at a small loss just to get it away from touching my really nice fragrances in my fragrance cabinet.
I think that the whole Bond line is pretty horrid I've tried probably at least 85% of them and have zero desire to own any of those that I've tried
Wall Street is one of their better offerings in my...
Overrated would be Bond new Harlem and mancera cedrat Boise
Underrated would be Byredo Oud immortel and Montales Red Aoud
Anything with a strong eucalyptus note is therapeutic to me just like my 2009 Windsor
Absolutely love a few imaginary authors fragrances I find most indie perfumers scents unwearable or at the least very challenging to wear but not most of imaginary authors line. My favorite is Cape...
Can I buy a sample from one of you U.S guys? If you'd be willing pm me I'm interested in sampling this one. Thanks
There's one for sale on the sale thread 1st page xmen is the seller
I've sampled this one a few times and it's pretty good... One of the better choices for a Malone dude scent... But I just wished it lasted a bit longer on my skin. My wife has had good luck with her...
Vanille 44 le labo
This one was way too fem on my skin!! I really wanted to like it but in the end I scrubbed it off quickly.
Sunset heat was a very nice scent I remember but it was very synthetic feeling and it didn't last much longer than 2 hours and also was lacking in the projection department too...once I found a few...
Silver factory bond was some pukrid vile juice!
Coney Island bond as well...horrible!! dunno who would wanna smell like that
The color of the juice looks identical to tabarome millesime color... As the vintage tabarome is very dark in color.
I hate this one it smells like an old man who probably loves smoking cheap cigars. I'm not an amber fan though
Being in a can just helps protect expensive juice from getting hit by sunlight which can slowly kill a good frag.
On the other side being in a can it makes it a bit harder buying a used bottle...
Silver mountain water,MI,GIT those are all non offensive and good frags
Bond is pretty horrible I'd skip over those
The 2010 E01 batch is my favorite batch I have z01 too
but E01 last forever and has the perfect balance of all
eBay auction and I was the only bidder I got it for like $199shipped it was gift wrapped by kilian boutique not a tester
I liked my sample so much that I bought a full bottle after I ran out. I don't know if I would have bought it for full price but I'm very happy with it at 30% off retail.
I love eucalyptus and it's...
When I wear this my wife says I smell just like cotton candy so needless to say I no longer wear it ever.
I'm one of those people that wished aventus was watered down a little bit... It's too strong to wear to work and last 13 hours on my skin and much longer on my clothes ... I basically spray my ankles...
I've tried some of tauers most popular fragrances including Desert M but unfortunately I didn't like any of them I always thought DM was way over hyped. They were so bad I don't have any interest in...
You need to try poivre 23 before you give up on their brand completely it's probably their greatest work and one of their top selling city exclusives along with vanille 44... That's a good one too....
I love the by kilians presentations... I know they all look alike but they are as classy as your mommas Cadillac on a Sunday drive.
And those new K cases are sexy as a doctors wife.
I'm pretty sure it's gonna be a regular available offering just like memoirs, Ect
Really not very similar at all.
Cape heartache is much more fruity and way sweeter
A city on fire is not sweet at all and has very little fruit" almost unnoticeable amount"
These scents are about...
I've tried 4 of kerosenes most popular fragrances including R, oud elements and I wasn't impressed... It just felt like they were kinda thrown together chemist experiments. Although my wife gave me...
White aoud is where it's at!
Nepal is nice too
Black musc also
Update: I've worn it 1 other time since my first impression
This scent starts off kinda intimidating to me it smells like something that could be mistaken for a smoky mesquite steak marinade but...
Looters ain't got enough class to wear this one. They only wear shame
Bought this one a couple days ago because I've been impressed by many of Josh's offerings as of lately
At first spray I get a very dark bold almost mesquite smokiness tiny bit of berry which I...
It bothers me that people think al rehab silver "spray" smells more pleasant than SMW ... Are you kidding?? Dude that stuff smells just like a slightly more classy dollar general store wannabe with...
I was hoping to like aoud cafe myself but I found it a scrubber for me... Dunno what it was but some note in that composition made me nautious.
You need to try cape heartache from imaginary authors it's fantastic for the price!
I expect that you will wear it a few times and semi-like it but after a few wearings you may never really reach for it and then a few years go by you've held onto it and eventually sell it for profit...
Smoke for the soul ...nothing else like it
It's actually quite unique but still very wearable for me . It smells similar to what I think a famous rock star would probably smell like after a big...
Black musk is really nice... Also Aoud safran
I've changed my own opinion about GIT i think it's a batch thing again ive sold off 2 bottles in the past couple years because it just wasn't working for me...and then I came across this bottle with...
This was my first niche ever and for that it will always have a special place in my collection and heart... Not to mention I love the scent on me
Yeah this one last forever on my clothing and almost forever on my skin... I wore it to a wedding last Saturday and it projected like a beast and lasted till I took a shower that night a good 12...
If it was fake it would be incredibly evident at first smell... like weak pineapple water.
Bergamote is really nothing special but smw on the other hand is special! in my opinion
I recently bought a cheap supposedly smell alike "according to fragrantica members to a discontiued scent that I love and anyways... I received it in the mail yesterday and it made me physically...
Original poster did nothing wrong at all. This is silly debate. Sell is final, item description was accurate. Buyers expectations unrealistic apparently.
