  1. Re: How many sample sprays equates to one "real" spray?

    Yeah, but when I want to give 'em a full wear, I'd like the amount that I apply to my neck, chest and elsewhere to resemble the amount from a full bottle. Otherwise sillage could give a wrong...
  2. How many sample sprays equates to one "real" spray?

    How many sample sprays equates to one "real" spray, in your experience?

    A full bottle often sprays a lot more but how much more?

  3. Re: Have you ever asked another man what was he wearing????

    Did you tell him that it smelled great, or we're you honest?

  5. Re: Which samples should I get from the best houses?

    Oh, sorry, I actually meant Tam Dao by Diptyque :) I have corrected it now.

    I have read many good things about Encre Noir. I should definitely sample that one.
    Also Molecule 01 for the ISO...
  6. Which samples should I get from the best houses?

    Thanks a lot for the suggestions and helpful information.

    I have sampled quite a few since my post, and I have bought Terre EDP and EDT. I love this stuff so much, and I'll be investigating the...
  7. Re: I dislike most of the scents I sample - Is this normal?

    Good to hear. It is also my expectation that I will learn to appreciate more notes and types of scents as I sample more and more.

    But there's only 365 days in a year, and I don't think I can...
  8. Re: I dislike most of the scents I sample - Is this normal?

    That's actually exactly what I'm trying to do. At first I spent weeks finding the best cinnamon based scents, because I thought there was something there. But it turned out, cinnamon wasn't it. Now...
  9. Re: I dislike most of the scents I sample - Is this normal?

    Thanks a lot for all the great advice.

    It's possible that I judge the scents a bit too early. Some of those that come out very powerful in the beginning do sometimes settle to a more pleasant...
  10. Re: I dislike most of the scents I sample - Is this normal?

    Yay, maybe I'm lucky, I guess :)

    I have been using Evernote to tag the different scents with the notes from Fragrantica to try to figure it out. The different notes just come out some differently...
  11. I dislike most of the scents I sample - Is this normal?

    Hi Basenoters,

    I am quite new to this fragrance nerdery, and I have been wondering, why I dislike so many scents. I see a lot of scents getting beautiful reviews, but I just don't like most of...
  12. Re: At 29, I'm just realizing I've started to become a "collector" fragrances... Need some suggestio

    I very rarely find something that I like, so I rarely buy full bottles. So I guess I have the opposite problem :)

    I don't know if my nose just needs training or whatever it is. I just find most...

    Re: Chanel Egoiste :'(

    Same here. It's just a bit too heavy for me. But it's ok. Different scents for different people, I guess.

  14. Hermessence Gift Set - Which four should I get?

    Hermés lets you choose four 15ml bottles from their Hermessence line for 113 euros / 156 USD. That seems like a pretty good deal, and it lets me try out some different stuff from the house.
    I own...
  15. Re: Original/vintage Terre d'Hermes - Where to buy?

    Sounds good. Link to your thread? The one that you link to in your signature doesn't mention Terre :huh:
  16. Re: Original/vintage Terre d'Hermes - Where to buy?

    Thanks for the advice. The problem with going to the small stores is that I can't check the production code on a boxed product.
  17. Re: Original/vintage Terre d'Hermes - Where to buy?

    I found out what batch codes I should be looking for on Checkcosmetic, and I have now asked a couple of sellers on Ebay to post pictures of the code that is imprinted on the bottle (of course this...
  18. Re: Original/vintage Terre d'Hermes - Where to buy?

    Yes, there are numerous threads about its way better lasting power.

    Ebay was my first guess as well. But the sellers rarely put in any information about when the product was bought it seems.
  19. Original/vintage Terre d'Hermes - Where to buy?

    I'm hearing great things about the pre-reformulation Terre EDT. Does anyone know where to get this?

    Thanks for the advice. But what do you mean, they are the same story?
  23. Which samples should I get from the best houses?

    Hi all,

    I'm new to this forum and I'm only now starting to geek out on scents after 10+ years of wearing nothing but antiperspirant deodorants.

    I'm ordering a selection of men's samples (10-15...
