I emailed a couple of them, I'll update if I get any responses
TVL, thanks for the tip on Filene's basement. I'm gonna go visit it today to see what I can find.
how much was it? and which marshalls are you talking about?
my recently discovered rive gauche, it's like a scent that creates an aura of content around my olfactory senses.
Thank you all for the responses. I am still on the border with this one. Is there any other fragrance this one is similar to?
Very fresh, green, vibrant scent. Go ahead and order yourself a small bottle, because this one will get a lot of wear in the summer.
Hey guys, I saw Davidoff Goodlife at Marshall's 25 bucks for 4.2 oz. I'm tempted to get it blind. I looked at the reviews and they seem to be mixed, and the notes seem ok. Can I get some opnions...
Rive Gauche pour homme, one spray of it is very subtle.
My top blind buys:
Rive Gauche Pour homme
Green Irish Tweed
im wearing Rive Gauche pour homme
Rive Gauche PH
Sillage is how far the fragrance projects. Take a fragrance and take your nose away from where you sprayed it, and how far that reaches your nose is how much sillage it has. Basically, how far away...
there are too many tempting things at marshall's and tj maxx these days... Good life and kiehl's musk were among the other good ones I saw..
I think its a nice fragrance, but its just too common nowadays.
it doesnt have anise in it, but some of the middle notes elemi and caraway smell kind of like anise, it's not like kenzo air. it will get cloying after a couple of minutes, I couldn't stand it so I...
oh man I regret buying this, but luckily it was only 8 bucks for a 1.7oz bottle. It smells very synthetic, like an acqua di gio wanna be with a sickening anise-like smell.
can you describe the ozonic note a little further? I am not sure what ozone smells like.
I saw a bottle of this for 8 bucks at marshall's, anyone know anything about it?
correction: bazar pour homme
I hate it, I think its so dull and boring. I love the original Burberry for men though, that one is at least interesting
That is classic haha. I hate the Nordstrom SA at my mall, she always follows me around and gives me dirty looks.
Ok I just got it for 20 bucks 2.5 ounces at Marshall's yesterday. I think this is one of the best blind purchases I have ever made. However I absolutely hate cloves, and its pretty pronounced in...
dang my tj maxx doesnt have rive gauche..
i never use aftershave anymore. clogs the pores and causes breakouts
Thanks for letting us know, I was just wondering what this stuff smells like, if anyone knows.
So as I was looking at my xeryus rouge bottle today, I smelled it and thought about how fitting the bottle color was to the scent, it smelled very red and energetic. Let's list some colors and what...
anyone know a scent that has nuclear sillage, im talking about stuff that will be known across the room, yet has a very light and non offensive smell to it? also a scent that has a very strong aroma,...
if i see a good scent that is a good deal and have the money to purchase it, I usually will. I usually go back on basenotes to check reviews and see the opinions before I buy.
why not something different than cool water. everyone has it. How about something different like vetiver extroardinaire
hmm basically its a huge blast of lavender, very strong and pure, followed by a mellow vanilla dry down... moderately long lasting, bout 4 hours, and sillage is very strong during the opening and...
can you imagine a eau de parfum or even parfum version? one drop would last the entire year lol
Angel Men is addicting
I really hate how I ask for one scent SPECIFICALLY requested and they send me some other scent.
I got noir epices as well... even though I didnt even ask for it.... Basically I got NE, angeliques sous la pluie, and Vetiver extroardinaire in the first sample try. kinda suspsicious
ive ordered some more samples, this time cologne bigarade, musc ravageur, and lys mediterranee. Hope fully helene gives me the ones i requested, not other ones haha
To go against the grain, I actually like noir epices, i think its a very daring scent.
does laguna smell like body kouros by any chance?
vetiver extraordinaire is the best vetiver ive ever tried, very natural, reminiscent of the great outdoors: a field of grass next to the woods on a dimming summer afternoon
xeryus rouge! AND I love it so much
omg xeryus rouge is so addicting, i cant stop smelling my wrist because its so ravishing! But yeah i can see why some wouldnt like it, because it's sweet. However, I tend to like sweet fragrances...
I do love these 2 scents now, they'll be a nice addition to my collection.
So I went to loehmann's and got azzaro visit and xeryus rouge for a little over 10 bucks each. the xeryus rouge was bought blind, and I thought it smelled like apple shampoo. The azzaro visit smelled...
1. L'eau d'issey ph
2. lolita lempicka au masculin fraicheur
3. angel men
in no particular order
Dont ever compare such cheap colognes as cool water/curve to GIT. It really disrespects GIT.
I used to think rochas man was better, now I see angel men takes the cake.
i currently use 2 full sprays. In the future I plan to reduce it to either one full spray or 2 half sprays.
I really love my angel men, and will buy a bottle as soon as my small bottle runs out
ok guys, thanks for the answers! Now i know which ones are which
I love clean men, It reminds me of a childhood smell.
well i would theoretically like to know all of them and what their exact numbers were... i mean some of them were pretty interesting scents
does anyone remember what the answers to adeel's mystery scent challenge were?
are there any fragrances that use strawberry?
ive tried smw himalaya GIT MI. GIT is best, MI is second
mugler cologne, guerlain vetiver ,issey
vetiver extraordinaire has no equals
d&g pour homme
1. everyday/casual- Green irish tweed
2. clubbing- Body Kouros
3. evening- L'essence d'must de cartier
4. fresh- Gendarme
I love body kouros, angel men and body kouros are my 2 favorite gourmands. To me it gives off a delicious vanilla cake aroma, singular, yet oh so yummy. I can't wait to get a bottle of this stuff...
I never go more than two sprays on the chest of angel men. More than that will probably make you known from 10 feet away. One is the ideal, but I like to project angel men more. I can't live without...
It's an allright fragrance. Now if it didn't generate hundreds of spinoffs I doubt everyone would bash it like they do in this forum. It does what it is portrayed to do, create an aura of freshness...
the lavender in the top notes is very very strong. It disappears in five to ten minutes. then it smells sweet on the drydown.
I would like a small bottle of these:
Bois du portugal
Lolita lempicka au masculin fraicheur
green irish tweed
l'essence de must de cartier pour homme
I would take angel men over hanae mori anyday of the week. Angel Men is great if you wear one to two sprays of it. Hanae mori is just a syrupy mess anyway you spray it.
I love the citrus after 5 minutes, then I absolutely hate the ghastly drydown, it's horrible, now if it had that same opening and had vetiver extroardinaire's drydown that be like a masterpiece.
I think mine is angel men
Dolced & gabbana ph
L'eau par kenzo pour homme
l'essence de must de cartier
D&G pour homme
Bmen, Amen, Mugler cologne
L'eau d'issey pour homme
Dunhill Desire blue
Clean for Men
kenzo air has anise, which smells slightly sweet
I'll take anything if its not too late, thanks ;D
welcome to basenotes, everyone has different tastes, so instead of asking us to reccomend specific colognes, you should experiment with some of the houses yourself.
I'll make it dunhill desire blue
i wonder if anyone would actually buy this.
i bought this blind, people call it unisex but I will disagree strongly with that. It is for women
that phone number looks weird. maybe its a number in france? I heard it doesn't work, so im waiting for a reply from flying moose because he found a sample request form that actually worked
All this serge lutens raving is making me feel really, really left out. You guys make it sound like serge lutens is the most elite and prestigious perfume company in the world. So tell me, are these...
flying moose, where did you get the sample request form for serge lutens???
I received all the truefitt and hill samples, and these l'artisan samples:
Mure et musc
tea for two
ananas fizz is so addicting so far, smells...
azzaro chrome is an average and boring scent.
I'd say try getting the classic eau sauvage.
1. L'eau d'issey pour homme
2. Dunhill Desire Blue
3. Green Irish Tweed
4. Body Kouros
5. Lolita Lempicka au masculin fraicheur
caron pour un homme
So I've got L'anarchiste on one arm, caron pour un homme on the other.
the pour un homme really attacked my nose at first with a really strong harsh lavender (I could smell it a foot away from my...
check out loehmanns, good selection as well.
I dont reccomend buying anything blind. Chances are you wont like the scent and therefore wasting money and resulting in an unhappy you. Ive done it twice, and I definitely regret both.
Green Irish Tweed
Dunhill Desire Blue
So I tried spezie and dilmun so far, they are allright but a little heavy/powdery for me. And after looking at some of the descriptions for his other works they seem heavy and soupy, like piper...
I second opium, but why is egoiste so hard to find in stores these days?
hey this is a bit off topic but julian your picture/avatar always intrigued me. It reminds me of a dream I once had. Is that a painting? if so, who?
ok back to the topic, I think smeagol would...
Just because I don't like to wear heavy fragrances around other people doesnt make me timid. It just makes me polite for respecting other people's boundaries. I actually care for the people around...
I would go for a subtle scent because you also have to think of the girl as well. *I would choose a safe/subtle scent for a girl that I want rather than wear a fragrance I like that is a heavy...
eau sauvage is not a date cologne. I don't think you want to smell like lemon pledge on a date. It's a classic that is best appreciated alone.
thanks for the link. I hope this is a sample vial and not the scented postcard
