Crabtree & Evelyn Lavender
The dry down is very rich and almost resinous. I really love this fragrance.
Best to order directly from them. That is what I did.
As a big Shalimar lover I was very happy to open this thread.
I getso many things from Shalimar EDP. I get leather, vanilla, warm sensual skin, powdery rich resin feel, etc. Will never be without...
Vanille Tonka by Parfums de Nicolai and Hypnotic Poison.
Miller Harris L'Air de Rien. I actually would wear Cologne Pour Le Soir, if I owned a bottle, but L'Air de Rien reminds me of this.
Jicky can easily be worn by men and women alike. I am always curious what vintage Guerlain's smell like (so far I have been very very impressed) and I would love to sample vintage Jicky pure parfum....
I wouldn't get rid of any of them. Just revisit after a break from them and you might be surprised which ones you actually want to get rid of.
I get guava. It smells quite fresh and bright, and it smells different from other 'fresh' scents. I quite like it.
Anything from Acqua Di Parma. Others will enjoy it too.
The key is to spray very very lightly. One spray from 1 feet away. Great scent. It smells a bit like warm skin after being in the sun for too long with some spices added of course.
TV will be more pleasant for the majority for sure.
Borneo 1834 when I encountered it. Now it is not in their international line and not easily available. I regret this.
Vol de Nuit is a gorgeous green scent.
My favorite is the vintage extrait. I think it is simply sublime and breathtaking!
Carnal Flower and Ambre Sultan. After giving multiple tries I still cannot stand these two.
I really enjoy Vanille Tonka and Maharadjah. Would like to sample more PdN.
Does room spray mean you are spraying into air?
I spray my pillow sometimes.
As a fan of Kouros, it is a wonderful to read and enjoy your work. Thank you!
Al Oudh (will be afraid to wear in public though)
Cologne Pour Le Soir
My wish list will turn into a buy list probably.
To me The Third Man from Caron fits a very refined young man coming from very old money or young money.
I have used strawberrynet them several times and have always been happy.
USAfamm: How do you always get 20% off of fragrancenet?
I did not like the dry bitterness of this at first and gave up a chance to purchase a bottle. I LOVE it so much now and it is hardly available any more! So warm and smooth and great longevity! The...
Shalimar EDP. The only fragrance I have never gotten tired of wearing daily every single day.
The scent itself is a great classic. I find it quite versatile.
Musk Gazelle by Ajmal. It is not bitter but it fulfills the others. Caution: Wear it to the zoo before you wear it in the wild.
All three are well liked by most people.
They are mostly linear fragrances but I have enjoyed every one I have tried so far. Underrated house in my opinion.
Midnight in Paris is very good and the only one I own from your list.
Not on your list but very sensual vanilla - Shalimar EDP.
I am not a fan of cloves. The opening has a lot of cloves and cinnamon to my nose but I find the dry down to be very warm and sensual with the comforting creamy vanilla. Even sexy I dare say. I will...
Something very light or nothing. Acqua di Parma perhaps?
This smells grand and expensive.
Like them both.
It keeps changing the more I sample and getting used to the different notes. The exception being I still dislike aquatics in general.
You got me too! I didn't even bother reading the rest of what you had to say and immediately started to search for it on fragrancenet after your link didn't go anywhere. Good one.
I like the plum, lavender and tonka bean notes. Hate the bottle. Is John Galliano even behind this? He no longer is behind his John Galliano label.
The most money I have ever spent on has been on fragrances. This all started after joining basenotes. :)
Find out his taste in fragrance. I had a similar list of what I thought I should get for my father and much later during a sampling session with him I found out that he loved Chanel No. 5 and...
Image and marketing.
Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille would be perfect.
It reminds me a little of Patchouli 24 from Le Labo but Cd'A is unique for sure. I find myself constantly feeling the need to smell it when I spray it on my wrist.
I didn't like Ungaro I. Very generic and forgetable to my nose.
Now Ungaro II is something special. One of the most memorable openings for me. I get a lot of fresh citrus and don't get fecal from...
Montale Oud Cuir d'Arabie by a mile.
It seems to me the most heavily advertised and marketed fragrances in that country makes the top list.
Parfums de Nicolai
Also resonable shipping to international customers.
I use to own about 5 bottles total and I was satisfied with that before I joined basenotes. Now I own over a 100 bottles and over a hundred samples and want more bottles. I have also found that my...
Buying more samples and really taking the time to see which ones I truly love and want. Would have spent my money better this way.
1740 Marquis de Sade by Histoire de Parfums.
And this is what it reminds me of http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ERE6DnE2e8g
My most used is Shalimar EDP.
Bvlgari Black. The burning rubber note makes it dark even though it has a sweetness to it.
For my bottles, yes. For my samples, no.
I broke my L'Artisan Tea for Two. Was able to save 15 ml from a 3.4 Oz bottle 80% full. It smells weaker now. The exposure to air must have changed it a bit. Still recovering.
It smells like a knock-off of CdG 2 man to me.
I have found 1 Million to have poor longevity and sillage. It does well in the first 30 minutes but then its gone.
It smells like fresh metal to my nose. Quite pleasant. Reminds me a little of L'Anarchiste.
Molinard Les Orientaux Vanille.
They have several other vanilla scents like Vanille Patchouli, Autour De La Vanille...
I now want to sample all these fragrances.
I have noticed that even though I am disgusted by some of these animalic scents I always find them interesting enough to revisit. I have started to like...
I have one sample from Montale - Cuir d'Arabie. Loathed it at first. I thought it stank. Then after months I tried it again and found myself disliking but wanting to try it every now and then. Now I...
I would say vintage Shalimar.
I find it a very bright fragrance that might make it more feminine for some but it is totally unisex to me.
Kouros fits the bill.
Musk Gazelle by Ajmal. Over a 100 including shipping.
So many to get from this line. Not mentioned so far but wonderful, imo, Pathouli Patch and Voleur de Roses
I would have guessed Yatagan to be more unisex than Bal a V. It smells less like a perfume and more like an odor to my nose.
Midnight in Paris or Rochas Man.
I am surprised to see such poor reviews of Kokoriko. I think its wonderful take on chocolate is quite well done. Dry down is quite beautiful.
I have it but only tested it once on my skin and clothes. I just smell it from the little container it comes in without opening the bottle and even touching it now. It smells like the fur of an...
Musk Gazelle by Ajmal.
Sorry, wrong thread.
Also Musk Gazelle by Ajmal.
Miller Harris L'air de rien
Cuir de Lancome
It was Kouros for me. And a boatload of others ever since.
The first thing that came to my mind was also many from the CdG line.
How about Vanille Tonka or Maharadja by Parfums de Nicolai? Also try Cuir Beluga.
Frapin 1270 has very poor longevity and if this is a good substitute with better longevity I might consider buying. Now I am curious if anyone has tried Tom Oud by Surrati in concentrated oil (Does...
I find Cuir de Russie more versatile and luxurious.
I have to be in the mood for Bel Ami as it smells like fresh sweat on warm skin to my nose. I do not get this as much from vintage Bel Ami...
Their ads are pretty funny!
Parfums De Nicolai!

Parfums De Nicolai!
Thank you for your wonderful review of this amazing fragrance. I like the way you have broken down your review to different categories. Easy to follow and very helpful.
Does this fragrance remind...
MKK, unless I am in a different country.
Love them both but I wear MKK with caution.
Try Patchouli 24 and Oud 27.
I initially hated Patchouli 24 but absolutely love it now and am saving for a bottle.
I was surprised how little mine projected as well. Longevity is not great either.
A must try for me.
Used them many times and always happy. Packing is nicely done and they are fast. Free shipping as well.

I find this fragrance quite beautiful and elegant.
I forget which one but there is another Frapin that smells like 1270.
Gucci Pour Homme II is a beautiful versatile fragrance.
This is not a niche fragrance by any means but give Patchouli by Molinard a try. It reminds me of Coromandel for less than 1/10 th the price and a must try for patchouli lovers.
I get this from L'Anarchist.
I have yet to find a fragrance I dislike from this line.
I enjoy this when sprayed very lightly. I find it quite beautiful and pleasant.
They are all synthetic to varying degrees.
Mouchoir de Monsieur EDP and pure parfum. At least it will give some longevity.
When I wore Pure Malt my mother said it "tasted nice". Freudian slip?
These bottles look gorgeous.
I love these fragrances but vintage Shalimar EDP just does it for me.
No Vol de Nut? Vintage Vol de Nuit pure parfum is heavenly.
I have spent the most on vintage Guerlains.
If the title of this thread was "...fragrances that you LIKE" I feel the same names will pop up. I have to constantly check the subject of this thread. Weird in a big way.
