Tom Ford - Amber Absolute because of how dense the amber is. It's a staple for that note.
Are there higher end frags that compare to this or does this splash stand on its own?
Aventus. I get tired of it and would prefer to wear Arabian scents more often, but if I'm going to be around new people I'll pick it even if I'm not in the mood. There are other frags I get a ton of...
Because of all your glowing recommendations, it's super low price, and because it's discontinued I just picked this one up. I do NOT get it. I've tried really hard over the past couple of weeks to...
For me, one reason I'm annoyed is because I expect this to be a regularity: there are lot of frags I can't get anywhere else and they have the best cost/size ratio for samples [particularly with the...
My mistake everyone, it's actually been an entire month. Shipped on 1/15. What it has been doing since then I can only guess. Waiting patiently in a warehouse, I presume.
Gucci Pour Homme is easy to find on ebay. You could even get one NIB.
Great point. I forget who it was, some designer who was making the switch from womenswear to menswear, said the trick is that with women it's okay to be alluring but with menswear it's much tougher...
Wow okay. Yeah mine says it's in transit so it's on the way. I can't believe I'm going to wait 5 weeks before I feel I need to contact them. I mean one of the items I ordered a sample of has already...
I love LHBI's responses. He seems to actually have good game and that's going to trump any weird hobby and even turn into something cool. It's not so much that owning a lot of frags is cool or weird...
Math just isn't their strong suit - they're gifted in other ways!
Is this still the time frame? 2-3 weeks? I'm on 3 weeks and 2 days with no package currently.
Never?! But hednic why not!
Probably but I like doug's interpretation better O:)
I think you guys are overreacting when you say Aventus is hyped. That's like saying there's hype surrounding Bill Gates' net worth. Ain't no hype - guy's rich.
lol.. This made me laugh in a this-is-obnoxiously-said kinda way -- it's like if Eeyore could post in a forum.
I guess we should update 2012's tallies.
It really should look like tea, donchathink?
Got excited, ordered a sample, currently en route. Then just discovered PdM is going to be carried at Nordstrom and thus no longer have it's niche panache. Damn.
My reaction to most Tom Ford projects.
Higher quality synthetics should have:
1. Increased longevity
2. Increased sillage
3. Increased complexity - this can be personal taste but I want something the develops and changes over the...
I have noticed this. Even within the same company: Sephora has items on their website that say "Online Exclusive", then they also sell them in their stores. Seems like a genuine false-advertising...
^ How duplicitous of them. I'm going to sue their socks off.
^ You're equaling "quality" with "natural". It's certainly possible that higher-end houses simply use higher quality synthetics.
Can these be used to refill one of the official 50ML Tom Ford bottles or are those bottles sealed in a way to make it prohibitively difficult?
Another vote for Bullion. Super interesting scent. Comes in very under-the-rader for me - I try it and think "this is good, not 5/5" but then I can't stop smelling myself. I didn't THINK I loved it,...
Thread title was a bit misleading.. "exclusives" would mean they're only sold at Nordstrom.
Also, does anyone know if they're going to be carried universally at every Nordstrom fragrance counter...
^ He's atheist. The frag is making the statement he wants.
Also, I'm fascinated to know how he ascertained 2 sprays on the neck was "not enough"... No fans taken out? Only mild sniffles?
"You may have noticed that when you enter a house that has a peculiar smell, it takes about 20 minutes before you no longer smell it. This is because the olfactory system is geared to...
I'm honestly a bit surprised the responses in this thread. First off, everyone is well-aware that these are generalizations, we get it. Just like the compliment mega-thread. And it's not like...
Which house makes this? Armani Privé?
Nasomatto - Blamage
I haven't sampled it but check out that description. It sounds like it's got a good shot at being what you're looking for.
Bump - Is this still the case? Is there any way to sample these perfumes if you live in the US?
5 year bump - do people still experience the evaporation issue with the 1.5 ml samples? I'd love to order something like the Tobacco Sampler but I don't want 18 frags to evap before I have a chance...
Yeah, definitely just give up all hope.
It looks like it's selling for $100 on ebay. Nowhere cheaper I assume?
I did the exact same thing: I blind bought Z01 because of the hype. Honestly it was worth every penny regardless of what happens. Either
1) I wear it a bunch and it does not get positive responses,...
^ I love this explanation. Probably because I see myself at the top of the male bell curve, and thus it completely makes sense that I am vastly more talented than all those around me. In all...
Yeah it's gotta be different for different people. It's like how they say women have *triple* the sense of smell as men.
This is not allowed
I think they were trying to say something about the duality of man.
But for only $50 you could get Essenza!
Let's say you have the blend of ingredients you want. What happens when you take it from 10% aromatic compounds/90% alcohol and proceed to double everything to make it 20% aromatic compounds/80%...
Well put, heh.
- - - Updated - - -
Here are a few legit suggestions that fit what he wants:
- Tom Ford - Tobacco Vanille
- something amber-y like Mona Di Orio - Ambre
There are a few...
Yeah man it'd be hard to fake a bottle like that from the box all the way down to the digitized lot number at the bottom. If it were a fake, it'd likely be fake juice in a real bottle.
I feel like ericrico has been transported from another era into an internet forum. His politeness is unprecedented. :wink:
Learn something new every day.. :grin:
This question is so ridiculously vague. "Noticed in a good way", I mean it's like do you think people are going to recommend scents with great sillage that suck?
I definitely ordered this one. Delivery was attempted on Nov. 24 (while I was on vacation), so it's definitely not 3-5 weeks. I would love to tell you guys whether $40 for the EdP was too good to be...
What about this bottle of Tom Ford Extreme
The bottle's very dark, but it's not solid. Can I leave this out on the counter in...
8.4oz for sale at Saks right now..
You're talking about this:
But yeah OP does link to Polo Blue.
Suppressor, I think in order to get to the bottom of this, you're going to need to buy a little bottle of Aventus or three (definitely get a few dif batches) and wear it many many many times. The...
What's up with the trolls in the Aventus Conspiracy Thread?? I'm unsure what you expected...
Yeah, I just had that with Divine - L'Homme Sage. Loved it, then got bored of it.
+1, just walked into an L.A. Sephora and they were using the 30ML as their tester. Confirmed handy4travel. Definitely exists.
Yes. It can: He buys the frag, then freezes to death in the ocean.
Polo Blue is crazy popular, a lot of people liked it when I was in high school :coolold:
● http://www.arabianoud.co.uk/flash.php - boom!
No Tuhfa, but you can see prices and *actually* buy things there. How quaint. Still no way to get samples. Is there a site, even ebay, that offers...
I've seen some epic opening credits. :laugh: I'm confident judging a movie as great based off of an amazing opening sequence.
Srzly. There's a couple really solid ones on there that I can't see not working for what OP wants.
Okay after this annoying post, I don't care anymore.
I don't know what to say... other than that I'd like to sample it. (haha sample split, anyone??) I'm wearing Aventus currently and trying to imagine this dry-down with more pineapple. Curious. It'd...
Interesting advice, I'll try this. I have Dolce & Gabbana - The One with the same issue.. it just dies off so quickly.
OP, please wear Aventus and report back.
Yeah, I've tried to be accommodating with the floral scents but I can't find a single one that appeals to me. They strike me as something a girl would wear, thus as a guy I'm not into wearing it...
Yeah the thing with Tom of Finland is there aren't many other leather scents that are that powdery and leathery at the same time.
Buy a bunch of samples. Decide I dislike or are ambivalent to most of them. Put the one's I really like on a to-buy list. Buy later when opportunity arises.
I went to www.arabianoud.com and I am in love with their bottles. I assume that's where you got Tohfa? Does anyone have an account there? I can't view prices or buy anything. I get "Access Denied"...
I entered niche scents almost out of necessity a couple months ago. I only liked 5 scents in the entire Sephora collection (Tom Ford Extreme being the only amazing stand-out, imo) and started...
Steidl - Paper Passion
I really wish you would've, haha
^ Is that a good one for daytime?
Lolol £52 for deodorant. Now I want it. Must. Have. Aventus. Everything.
Does the EdP come in anything other than 4.2oz? I'll be much more interested in this scent if the EdP has a 1.7/2.5/3.3oz option.
^ Only 8 bottles? Lame. Based on your review it sounds like an awesome frag I'll never own. A unicorn of fragrances.
No Ortigia on the Gumps website. Does anyone know if they're still carried there? I'm going to get some samples off of First in Fragrance, but they only have half their line available.
^ Ahaha, this is hilarious
Her website intimidates me, haha. Is there a way to order samples of her stuff?
This looks like a woman's fragrance, or is it unisex?
Do they have a website or anywhere to buy it? I...
I can barely tell the difference between Godolphin and Mark Birley Charles St, they seem really similar. I loved Pegasus, but I'm not familiar with any other vanilla-scented frags, so maybe they're...
I don't like MB, but I enjoy Charles Street. I haven't bought a bottle of it, but if I did it would be for wearing around people who "don't like fragrances" so I can be as subtle as possible.
^ While Le Male may be attractive to some people, and I do find it interesting, that bottle design is actually what stopped me from copping the fragrance
Do you guys think this is a fake?
It fits the criteria mentioned in this thread,...
Oh, completely agree. I always give extra points for cool bottle design.
Because maybe I forgot to factor in something important, such as their longevity or their annoying ad campaign or their variance.
Agree :) . Also, I have no input.
^ Yeah, I'm aware a lot's not going to be covered. In the AdG thread Bigsly mentioned there were 1000 frags released in 2011. A crazy amount of product on the market. My point of making this thread...
Those Ortigia bottles look really cool
Post Frags That:
1. Smell incredible (ldo)
2. Are rare/not hyped on Basenotes (I would say that if the fragrance has a BN listing and a picture and 5+ reviews it probably doesn't qualify)
Dolce & Gabbana - The One (from '08/'09)
The fact that you post on a fragrance forum (nothing wrong with that :coolold:) and have never thought that, I honestly find weird. You spend so much time thinking about scents, and...
Who makes this?
