I really dig Scent pf Peace. I'll try bleecker st when I get the chance!
I finally got to try some Bond perfumes, which was long due. I am really taken with Scent of peace for him but I want to explore the rest of the line. Given that there are so many of them, what is a...
Can I recommend the 1828 by Histories des Parfums? I really like it, great for spring and easy to wear [ some might say..too easy! ]
CdG 2man is great too so it Green...
I'm talking about designer's deodorant that usually complements their perfume.
I recently just finished my HUGO by Hugo Boss deo which came with the perfume, and it was pretty great for the value,...
Doubt it. I think he hired someone to great something just for him. "it's just my musk" is a great line!!
According to this:
"After the show we go backstage where I meet Brad and Angelina. Brad Pitt smells amazing, like nothing I've ever smelled. Eventually we ask what cologne he's wearing and he...
I'm surprised some of you don't detect sandalwood because for me it's so in your face like a little kid begging for attention! But it's true that the cookie dough kind of thing behind calms it down...
I finally got a decant of this and I am here to report my experience. For some reason I was under the impression that it is a bit gourmand, a bit of a vanilla cookie. Boy, was I wrong.
I recently sold a MR decant that I bought from a guy in a forum. Now the person I sold to said that it is not MR because it is not incolour but a very dark colour. This is really upsetting,...
I've been going through my samples lately and the weird thing is that I just love 1828. We all have favorites and weird likes but for me this is alarming because it is really kind of...
Just got the chance to try this line but weirdly i didn't find anything online about it.
My favorite was Extreme and King of Cool.
I went to a store a couple of days ago to test l'ombre dans l'eau and the guy suggested I also try another diptyque with the same stuff - blackcurrant...or te same rose--- but i know for sure...
Hahaha. Damn right|!!
Wow. Your circles seems to be populated by jerks. I don't think the choices that anyone makes gives you the right to call them losers...especially when you're basically referring to all the fellow...
Let's see what our beloved TV characters are wearing :)
I'll start: Tom Haverford from Parks and Recs - Aventus [ where the hype is!! ]
I'm curious what Manny from Modern Family might be...
I rarely blind buy, especially expensive decants like this one [ 30$ 10ml] but let's see what you guys think!
I love vanilla scents, eau des baux is one of my favorites[ the notes seem pretty...
Smoke maybe not. but 1740 has a boozy open and a wonderful leather through and through!
Good to know i'm not the only one smelling honey!!
i have to say. a long few hours later, the drydown is pure vanilla! i still smell the honey-sweetness but it is in the background now.
i will follow your advice and smell it again, taking my time...
i tested in a store...estee lauder that sold all the tom ford perfumes. i've seen the bottle.
either i don't know how tobacco smells...or i just don't get it.
i'll go try it again then.
Today i finally tested TC by Tom Ford and I got nothing from it, no tobacco, no vanille...maybe i don't get it but what i have on my hand now is a very spicey and minty HONEY!!
Where are you from?
omg that gif!!!
Actually that was my inspiration! And it seems to be working greatly, if you risk to use travalo, you can try with a syringe.
If i ever fuck up a bottle I'll let you know. hope not though :D
I found a local site that sells a variety of essential oils: patchouli, vetiver, bergamont and many others. I'm interested in buying some but other than smell them, what uses do they have?
Here's what I do:
Sorry for the english. I was kind of babbling.
I've talked to Kron and he said glass bottles [ that's how the bottle looks... should be put in some sort of boxes. A padded envelope won't do I take it? The problem is that shipping a padded...
Guys! today i experimented with the method and found a new way to extract liquid! Should I make a video? I think it's the ultimate method and I see no problem using it on any bottles.
Ok. I'll try not to use a funnel. I think I'll stick with the spraying directly in the smaller bottle, trying to spray slowly. I wonder how much liquid can I expect to lose through mist? Is it...
So what did you do?
As a side note; is a plastic funnel alright? Can it be washed and re-used for another perfume afterwards?
I wonder because some say that a metal funnel is the only way to...
Well, wow. As long as I don't break the needle in, this would be great!
Gonna test it first on a more cheaper perfume frst! but great resource!
thanks a lot
Thank you! will try to be careful.
So I have a bottle of Avignon that I need to decant into 5 10ml pieces. As it happens, the top doesn't come off, it doesn't unscrew so I need to work with that.
My option is to spray 10ml directly...
I was wondering if we would be able to see on the livestream the workshops and conferences
for example tomorrow is;
CONFERENCE: The Tuberose
I'd love to hear it but will it be...
The most leathery animals I encountered so far!
I'd recommend you try amazingreen by CdG. Maybe it is what you look for :)
Tried this one and I started to like it a lot more than the first time still I am conflicted about getting it.
What you guys think?
Is buying them somewhat unethical? If you know there's probably illegally gained?
Are you refering to Lalique or Guerlain now?
But I totally get the point. I'm mostly curious if people know anything about known counterfeits.
how about L'instant de guerlain extreme edition?
Ace on the river.
But how much wear do you say you get out of it? it seems awfully small that's why I'm asking.
I got 5 hours out of edp but i just can't understand how 5g of solid can cost almost as much as 50ml of edt. isn't this ludicrous?!
I recently discovered this awesome perfume and I tried the EDT and EDP, both are lacking in longevity, but I was thinking to get the solid. but it's crazy expensive isn't it? 50$ for 5g of...
I was wondering if we know what kind of perfumes are counterfeited or not. Are niche perfumes counterfeited , like say CdG? Are all the designer perfumes?
I ask because sometimes I see on...
For 10e you can order 6 samples from their site. good price and you get to experience the goodies. Do take tubereuse 3; animal too. It's the greatest!
hmm, I'm sampling this today and I must say that for me, the leather is what strikes my nose the most. I can't smell any fruit, nor sweetness, the immortelle...how do I recognize this? I find it in a...
Still mesmerized by EdB. Every time I try it on it just works for me. Will buy it with the first ocassion.
Hahahah. Drinking it is!
a friend of a friend was wearing yesterday something that I just know it was a designer scent i recently sniffed...yet i can't place it!
It had a fresh mint that just dominated the sillage. a bit...
So i just received my 6pack of sampled from HDP. Each a 2ml vial with NO SPRAY!
How do I use them for full wear? do I dab it on my fingers then on my neck/wrist? How I know what " a spray" is?
reviving an old thread but.. is there a difference between the solid perfume and the spray? I mean it should be because the spray is 3x more expensive but what exactly is?
So my best friend wants a new perfume and tomorrow we'll go test some niche fragrances. We want to get something non-designer. His actual perfume is Givenchy Gentleman. Now we don't want a...
Checked and fixed! waiting for the message
they do have some very nice basics ---> sycomore, TF, Creed. Good prices, very affordable shipping! --> A fan!
haha. will post there. thanks!
I know there are some batch number threads and i read most of them yet i can't find something specific about that. Is it a "good" batch - in terms of longevity and sillage - is there a consensus...
But what would you say about Eau des Baux longevity on you. I sprayed on my hanmd this morning. 14 hours later [ and a SHOWER! [ you can still feel it.
really? why? you think showergels are useless or too expensive for what they offer? [ at 25$ for 250ml ]
I agree with both of you. From my experience with their soap, it does smell on the skin for a long time but it's very subtle, it's like it stays there to be smelled by your girlfriend not "people"....
Hello. I recently went sniffing L'occitane and it smells GREAT. we know that , right?
Now I want to buy all their fragrances but it seems excesive..yet, layering with a showergel might seem like...
thanks. will look into it.
Anything else except for CDG 3 incense series?
I'm looking for something jewish too. male or feminine. Want to try them all.
Thank you all for the very insightful answers!
For now I think the best explanation is this: better ingredients. daring, uncommon, unique smell [ although, there are a lot of "niche" fragrances...
Are designer's scents inferior? - I got this question in other thread and all joke aside, why is it so?
Is it about the ingredients? is it about the formula? the hype?
How can you explain to a...
Obviously, I'm a snob of the worst kind :))
- - - Updated - - -
Today is Guerlain Vetiver. I really want to "get" this smell. I'll also try l'occitone vetyver. what else has a very strong...
Wow. I love fragrance.net prices..but with shipping romania it's getting crazy expensive!
A bottle of EdB here is about 63$ I really want it but...when i see people getting ti for half the price!...
Am I crazy to feel the same drydown on this and DHI?
I thought I smell a bit of incense too but it's mostly vanilla for my nose. Sweet but not discouraging sweet...although I might have to agree...
true that. sorry. a moderator please close the thread. Thank you.
New perfume from EDP. Interesting video. I hope is not a re-post.
I actually own Burberry London. Bought it a few years ago and still half full, don't like it that much anymore though..
Will look out for everything you suggest!
SO I decied that there's no shame in trying designer fragrances too. I admit i am not excited about them now that i know what's OUT there but...easy access and I hope it will be a good way to...
I find it funny and baffling how celebrities-like the creators of perfumes are on basenotes :)) first time i hear the name Roucel!
OMG, how is it? What price did you find for this? here is about 300$ / bottle.
A lot of people said in my first education thread that the reviews and resources on basenotes helped them a lot. Now I ask you: How do you use these resources?
Do you read about a perfume, go try...
clearly .xls! :D
Nice, would love to see the spreadsheet and what you tried, maybe i can give them a go if i can find them! PM me if you don't want them in public
I can find this perfume in the store in Bucharest with 130e and on ebay for 40e. That's a HUGE price difference and never really encountered this so far.
Is the store overcharging it ?
Oh wow, you totally killed this review! Loved it. I don't agree with you because 1. i'm a noob who doesn't even know what "odd-numbered aldehydes" are?! and 2. different nose. But I had a lot of fun...
I want to use a link in my signature but I can't, I have absolutely no permissions in my signature just smileys. no html. no image...Is this because I am not a supporter? or just new to the...
Wow, fellas! Thank you for the extensive replies!
I decided I'll try to get the "Semogue 1305" from ebay as fast as possible [ i have no clue if one can buy it in romania] and the Jermyn Street...
Thank you for your comment. I, too, am inclined to buy a pure badger. I'll give it a week and then decide.
Thank you very much.
Easy game? :))
I want to buy a present for a dear friend. I was thinking to go with Taylor of Bond Street.
I decied to go with " Jermyn Street Collection Shaving Cream Bowl for Sensitive Skin 150g " which i...
wow. you do know your bottles Ss!! congrats!
hednic i google the photos and you are spot on. who knows the rest?!
As someone who just started out, I feel often envious on all the people who get to smell such a wide array of awesome perfumes and obviously tried a lot more because they can compare it so I wonder...
Thanks a lot! I think i'll open a separate thread with these mini reviews and just add to it as I gather more scents. Nevertheless, i can just walk in there everyday to sniff stuff although that...
Can anyone recommend other Outds as well? I find myself drawn to the smell and curious to see other imaginations of this wood.
Thank you guys! I realize that these are a noob's nose impressions but I had a great time writing it down [ for me, as well for anyone else who reads it ]. And i found that I feel very inspired by...
Today I went on a sniffing fest to local perfumeries and had an awesome time. I want to buy them all, I feel like addict in need of his drug and the worst thing is that the first dose is not free....
haha. that was good!
i'm gonna have aventus on me tomorrow. we'll see if it sticks. I found a nice guy who has decants on ebay for a pretty decent price 27$ for 10ml.
but first, i need to...
Thank you all for the answers. Now that i found out about this http://www.madisonperfumery.com/ I'll go tomorrow to sample CREED aventus, CREED royal oud and Comme des gracons - amazingreen.
I am new to the world of fragrances and I really don't know what's what. I've been browsing this forum for a while and i've noticed names i never heard of [ not really that amazing...
