  2. Re: Fragrances you love and wish would perform better as well as last longer.

    bigsteve, you should track down the midnight limited edition of LLAM. less vanilla, bit woodier (oud). projects about the same as the original but lasts 10+ hours on me.

    i wish CdG's Incense...

    Re: Best fragrance you have ever smelt?

    My top 3 as of now:

    LDDM. Simply the best thing ive ever smelled. Of course i have only bought and sampled a fraction of the frags that are out there, but of all i have tried, this is my one true...
  6. Re: Gourmand Shoot Out, which one do I pick?

    If you like licorice then Lolita Lempicka. Of those you mentioned i only have that (and a couple of its flankers) and Rochas Man. To me Rochas smells too much like a slightly longer lasting Lynx/Axe...

    Re: Fragrances that "WOW" you recently?

    Enchanted Forest wow'd me recently from the sample i got, enough to warrant a full bottle methinks.

    Montale's Chypre Vanille was my test drive today. I quite like it as well. The vanilla is not...

    Re: Anything close to a forest?

    I just sampled this and i love it. Its supposed to be unisex but I think it would smell better on a man. I imagine i smell like a an 18th century german lumberjack who just got back from cutting...
  9. Re: Creed aventus, what's the hype, average at best

    Thread has inspired me to give Aventus another whirl tomorrow.

    If i still don't get it, my 95+% full 120ml bottle will be hitting the marketplace.

    Re: How fickle are you?

    I cant pick just one as a favourite.

    I have frags for different occasions, different outfits, different people who I might see that day. I have a favourite for each, with a few sitting behind them...
  11. Re: Paco Rabanne Black XS: Longevity and Projection

    I get great projection, but longevity is very average at best. 4-5 hours on a good day and then it just disappears.

    Re: Girlfriend's Favorite

    YES. You are doing it right sir. I spray 5-6 sprays of LDDM early in the night when I'm not around other people. That way, in about 4-6 hours time when (if) things are going swimmingly and the gap...
  13. Sticky: Re: Which scent gets you the most female compliments?

    "You smell like sexual licorice"

    First female compliment with Lolita Lempicka au Masculin eau de Minuit. Quickly becoming my favourite, or equal favourite. I never got compliments ever with the...
  14. Re: Which perfume house uses the best/worst quality bottles in comparison to their price tag?

    Agreed on both. Rubber A*Men and flanker sprayers have to be the worst. I feel a bit stupid saying this, the bottles are quite attractive with the star design, but does anyone else that has a few of...
  15. Re: What is that one cologne you can safely say "it is one of a kind!"

    any of the lolita lempicka masculines

    ive smelled licorice and aniseed in other frags but never as such strong focal points. i love it.
  16. What in Invasion barbare is it that I can't stand?

    I always thought it had really dirty strong patchouli in it which I can't stand, but basenotes says it contains:

    Grapefruit, Bergamot, Violet leaves, White thyme, Cardamom, Lavender, Ginger,...
  17. Re: Heeley Sel Marin is probably one of the worst aquatics out there

    I have a sample of this sitting on a shelf. I'll have to wait until summer rolls around again to give it a true test.

    I hate strong patchouli scents. I hated it all together, until I realised it is in a few of my fave scents: A*Men etc.

    I still dislike it but I do avoid it if it is dominant. I think its rather...

  25. Re: What 's similar to Bond No. 9 Coney Island?

    I have both. Theres a similarity in the margarita notes in the opening (tequila, lime, salt with a bit of sweetness to it). Thats really where it begins and ends though.

    Coney Island is strange....

  30. Re: what's the best perfume for a traveler?

    Something very weak and inoffensive. Last thing anyone on a long flight wants is to be assaulted by your scent whenever you walk by.

    Hunting Tobacco Vanille

    I can't find this anywhere. I even went to the Tom Ford store in Vegas while on holiday and they didn't have it. Has it been discontinued?

    Apart from Ebays, does anyone have any other online leads?
  33. Re: Do you think Rochas Man smells feminine?

    It smells almost exactly the same as Lynx/Axe Dark Temptation to me. I know its rather petty but I think thats part of the reason im not a huge fan. For that reason though, I'd say it is unisex, but...
  34. Re: Another new Montale for Spring 2013 - Aoud Greedy!
