Heeley Menthe Fraiche was my signature fragrance for years. Not really uncommon or unheard of but maybe not common for many as a signature scent.
Mont Blanc Individuel. Fell out of love with it until I tried it again years later. Found myself missing it and repurchased it although its quite cheap so didnt really matter. Also I always have a...
Let me start off by saying Kiton black is a great fragrance. It's on my top 5 so yes my opinion can be biased. It is sweet, yet masculine and lasts a long time on my skin. It has decent projection,...
I don't think M7 can be considered a cheapie anymore.
Prices include shipping if it's within the US. Please contact me about international shipping.
50ml Tom Ford for Men. Sprayed twice. Comes with box. $40
30ml Lacoste Blanc. Full. $15
If you would like something aquatic or fresh, I'd recommend Creed Millesime imperial.
Something sweet- kiton black is transparent for a sweet fragrance.
Something earty- Philosykos.
I absolutely love M7 Fresh and sadly the bottle I had is now all done. This scent has been great and a wonderful surprise when I first got it and would love to get it again. However, ever since it...
I get a licorice vibe from Mont Blanc Individuel.
Gucci pour homme II all the way. The one dissapears after an hour. L'homme will get you compliments but personally I can't stand it.
Mont Blanc Individuel. I might have over-sprayed the first time I wore it and could just not tolerate it. Was driving in a rainy day and vehicle was very muggy and the scent was just suffocating. I...
I would go for Individuel. Much better fragrance than MIP IMO.
Then you sound like you need Millesime Imperial. I've owned both and felt the same way about love and luck. Then I tried Millesime Imperial without the synthetic notes and much better drydown.
I highly recommend:
Kiton Black- Fresh with sweetness, classy and can be worn for both casual and formal events.
Creed Aventus- There is a reason for the hype, it truly is great!
Up for swap I have the following:
60ml YSL L'Homme LIbre. 98% full.
100ml Cereus #4 Tester. 100% full.
100ml Cereus #7 Tester. 100% full.
Thanks everyone for your suggestions! I will be sampling most of the ones that have been suggested if have not yet.
Scientifically speaking there are so many other variables with every day products we use, chemicals on lotions, shampoos, soap, washes and things we touch that if there was a slight chance of this...
This one has some similarities to joop, which OP stated he couldn't stand. However it is a great fragrance.
La nuit could be a good choice but one that I would recommend and is a little more versatile is YSL L'Homme and works equally well.
Perry Ellis Red- Inexpensive and longer lasting version of Acqua di Gio
Rochas Man- Sweeter fragrance but low cost and might be something different but you may like it.
Mont Blanc Legend- Feels...
Do you have a set price range?
I have never tried vetiver with something sweet. I had no idea of it either. I've tried vetiver in fragrances such as Original Vetiver, Encre Noir and Sycamore and it is definitely not my favorite...
I'm looking for a fragrance with a little sweetness to it. I am not looking for something that screams when you walk in through a door. Projection has to be light, which means that you have to get...
Lomani AB spirit silver.
How about tobacco oud? Smells like tobacco vanille without overpowering sweetness. A great fall/winter fragrance.
I keep hearing a lot of comparisons between Lomani fragrances and creeds or designer fragrances. I know that they make a lot of high quality imitations and was just wondering what others were out...
True Religion- Great fresh smelling, low cost, quite appealing and has some classiness to it. If i would've known about this back in high school I would've had this a long time ago.
Up for sale I have:
3.4oz Calvin Klein Euphoria Aftershave Splash 99% full. $18
12.5ml Cartier Roadster. About 99% left. $16
Prices include shipping. Take both for $30. PM me for offers or...
He would wear YSL M7.
Mint is also a great clean 'fresh' scent;
Creed selection verte could pull it off quite nicely. Gives a great fresh scent but doesn't scream "I bought this at macy's". Has almost little to no...
Menthe Fraiche for me. Nothing like green tea and mint.
This is what im getting as well. Very herbal, natural and green but that mint and lemon stand out the most to me. I will PM you for your info. Thanks!
Hey guys, got a bit of a problem. Few years ago I bought as many mint fragrances as I could. The ones that absolutely stood out were menthe moderne, menthe fraiche and this other misterious one...
Great! I tought this might have been some sort of problem with my email but im glad to see there was an issue that has been fixed. Thanks for the update!
Heeley Menthe Fraiche is usually very refreshing with this weather. So is Creed Millesime Imperial.
How about Heeley Sel Marin? More of a sea salt vibe and not sweet. If you want something fresh, not sweet and that stands out from the rest you might also want to try out Hugh Parsons Traditional on...
Whenever one thinks of a club or a bar, one quickly imagines lots of people, many different smells, maybe smoke and a lot of other variables that would make most mainstream fragrances just blend in...
Thanks! I just ordered a sample!
I have tried Santal Mossai and Original Santal and they are very different. I prefer Original Santal by default but do not recommend it much for humid days. This is more of a cold weather fragrance...
I must say I absolutely love this fragrance. I went from buying samples to decants to finally a full bottle now. I had never smelled anything similar to this and I had tried a few mint fragrances and...
I didnt like it. Too powdery. Many people say they smell baby powder but I smell foot powder. I pass!
If you want something light I would go with the following:
Gucci Pour Homme II- Fresh, tea, very light but enjoyable.
Diptyque Philosykos- Fig, smells similar to a coconut tree and sticks close...
Personally, I see it pointless for my job as im an automitive technician and work with oil, dirt and many other substances that would ruin the point of wearing cologne.
You can afford a decant of either at that price. I would go with that.
Virgin Island Water
Green Irish Tweed
L'Instant de Guerlain Extreme
Very nice wardrobe btw! :)
Lately ive been trying to search for fragrances that bring back memories. Lately ive been remembering a lot the smell of grape flavored tobacco. Any fragrances that smell similar to this?
fragrancenet.com or sometimes even ebay.
I used to use small adhesive labels to label the 5 and 10ml decants I make but I cant find anymore small labels and its quite a hassle too since I was using microsoft word. What do you guys use and...
All of them although each is slightly different, just looking for one that resembles gum the most but not fully feminine.
Ive owned this but dont really get a bubblegum vibe from it. Good scent though.
Before the site had gone down I would get this option and it would allow me. Now that I finally decided to want to join it is telling me that I cant. Is this a temporary issue or are there new rules...
I already own both 1 million and spicebomb but its not really what Im looking for. Im looking for those old classic bubblegums, they had a very distinctive scent but scents like 1 million and...
Gucci Pour Homme II
Lately ive had the smell of bubble gum on my mind alot. Not the minty type of bubblegum but rather that sweet classic bubble gum smell. I have seen this done in feminine scents but would like to see...
Bulgari Soir is pretty good but definetaly prefer GPHII over it. Another great tea fragrance is Heeley Menthe Fraiche. Its a mint, not the toothpasty kind but the herbal, with green tea. One of my...
Ive owned both but got rid of both. Bleu de Chanel seemed higher quality and versatile IMO but it was very headache inducing and couldnt take it anymore. I would personally opt for something better....
Virgin Island Water- Tommy Bahama Set Sail St Barts
Original Santal- Mont Blanc Individuel (Much better than JOOP!)
Millesime Imperial- Ed Hardy Love & Luck
Wow personally I would think this would be the last thing on the list. I tought this was what the T-Rex would use to attract its mate back in pre-historic times. :p
I think Dior Homme Intense,...
Already own this :)
I still enjoy aquatics, its just that with so many aquatics out on the market and specially designers, there is not much unique about many of them.
Thanks for the suggestion. Any specific scents...
In the past few months I have done alot of changes to my wardrobe.
I currently own and will keep:
Creed- Aventus, Millesime Imperial, Green Irish Tweed
Christian Dior- Homme Intense, Vintage...
Bulgari Soir and Gucci Pour Homme II- Both Tea fragrances. Also Menthe Fraiche by Heeley which is mint with green tea. Original Vetiver by Creed is also a great modern vetiver. Mugler Cologne if you...
YSL Body Kouros
Aventus, Dior Homme Intense, Creed Millesime Imperial, Fahrenheit and L'Instant de Guerlain Extreme.
I used to love Bleu de Chanel but something about it always caused headaches. I do have a sample of L'Homme Libre and I see a few similarities on the initial spray but very different during the...
I second Spicebomb by Viktor & Rolf. Its definetaly a more masculine version of 1 Million as 1 million could be way too feminine at times.
If you like Le Male but looking for something slightly...
I think YSL Body Kouros has a different take on JPG Le Male. Le Male has that mint top with the vanilla dry down. Body Kouros has Eucalyptus top with Vanilla drydown. Although the top notes can be a...
Dior Homme and Dior Homme Intense.
Also L'Instant de Guerlain and L'Instant de Guerlain Extreme.
I actually think its real. Ive only owned one bottle of Allure Homme Sport but I remember seeing these variances with Bleu de Chanel and I had purchased those at Saks, Nordstrom and here.
Why not look for a deal on both? Or buy one 60ml of each instead of the 100ml of just one for a bit more.
Creed Aventus for today!
Love & Luck hands down. If you want to compare this with unforgivable, they have many similar notes, however i prefer much more Love & Luck. It is very fresh with decent longetivity and projection....
Cuerrently in my collection I own and enjoy:
Creed- Aventus, Millesime Imperial, Green Irish Tweed.
Christian Dior- Dior Homme, Fahrenheit.
Chanel- Allure Homme, Allure Homme Sport.
Are these the only options or are you open for suggestions?
You will be very happy with Aventus. It lasts a whole day on me and projects alot! Definetaly a great fragrance!
You should give Ed Hardy Love & Luck a try. It can sometimes last longer than Creed Millesime Imperial and smells decently close. Also you should try:
Bulgaria Aqua Pour Homme and Aqua Marine...
It is. The prices are cheaper than wholesale so must definetaly not be true.
I own this too and it is pretty good. A little synthetic at first but good clean fresh scent. I got it on sale for like $14 for a 1.7oz.
This! Doesnt smell and lasts a very long time.
Dolce and Gabanna Pour Homme
Versace The Dreamer
Also, first time I sprayed Creed Green Irish Tweed I was dissapointed as to my nose it smelled just like cool water. However,...
Bleu de Chanel
Terre D Hermes
Allure Homme Sport
Davidoff hot water smells like a more synthetic version of Joop. Joop is VERY loud. I more tamed version of Joop that smells great is Mont Blanc Individuel.
Some other recommendation are:
I own both and prefer allure homme sport. And if I had to chose a similar scent over Allure Homme Sport i'd have to go with Bleu De Chanel which IMO is better.
YSL Live Jazz
Bleu De Chanel
Perry Ellis Red
Abercrombie and Fitch Fierce
Versace Eau Fraiche
All of these have good longetivity and smell great.
As said before, La Nuit de L'Homme is much safer. However, personally I wouldn't use La Nuit for everyday wear. For everyday wear i'd probably recommend the L'Homme instead.
YSL Live Jazz ($25 for 1.7oz or $33 for a 3.3 oz)
Bulgaria Aqua ($35 for 1.7oz)
Ed Hardy Love and Luck ($30 for 3.4oz)
Mont Blanc Individuel ($30 for 1.7oz)
Mont Blanc Legend ($38 for 1.7oz)
Acqua di Gio...
YSL Body Kouros
Tom Ford Grey Vetiver
L' Homme d' l'homme's homme
Calvin Klein Obessesion! Yuck!!!
& A*Men. Also when Joop or JPG are oversprayed.
GIT for sure. I tried liking MI but soomething about it just doesn't go with me personally. I own both and have sampled SMW bbut have not tried VIW.
