JMT by O'driu 26462
Coeur de Vetiver Sacré
I am glad to see it is "pretty simple" to one of us.
The burning tire is somewhat deceptive... When smelled up close that was my first impression too... The sillage smells quite different and brings out a lot more nuances... the cinnamon in...
Not to derail this thread, but while I don't profess to be any expert to judge which is the "better perfume", I do own both vintage Cool Water and Green Irish Tweed and honestly couldn't say which I...
All the time. I rarely change my initial overall opinion, but it does happen from time to time, and in many cases nuances missed initially are uncovered.
Well, there *is* always Sulphur by nu_be. Alfarom has spoken very highly of the fragrance and the house in general. I must say that this one is quite good, particularly the sillage.
Nicolai pour Homme
Worth pour Homme Haute Concentration (current version)
I'm with Bigsly here... Posing an unsubstantiated allegation as a question is a pretty low blow, IMO.
It is completely unisex, and I enjoy and feel completely comfortable wearing it.
I have a very slight preference for the Original, but it is a more hardcore concoction that can be quite polarizing due to the very aggressive aromatic lavender open. My guess is most will find...
Classical by Anat Fritz. A limited distribution designer aromatic lavender woody composition with a relatively dry sandalwood and Vetiver base. Absolutely incredible smelling and perfect for all...
These are probably the top 5 from my collection...
Portrait of a Lady
Giorgio for Men (vintage)
Costume National Homme
Bogart pour Homme
Bijan for Men (vintage)
Vintage Giorgio for Men26382
I love Lyric Man, but even as one who owns, loves and wears all sorts of rose dominant compositions marketed to either gender, it is tough for me to wear it. I think it smells fantastic on a woman.
I sample whenever I can and it is my method of choice. That said, I blind buy from time to time, and the uncertainty/surprise has its charms too.
Armani: Eau pour Homme (vintage)
Dior: Fahrenheit (vintage)
Givenchy: Monsieur de Givenchy (vintage)
Guerlain: Arsene Lupin (Dandy)
Hermes: Terre d'Hermes
I own vintage versions of both Insense and Photo and they are nothing alike. Photo in its vintage form is an excellent fragrance, however. As to a replacement for Insense, nothing immediately comes...
La Fille de Berlin followed by Chergui and Iris Silver Mist
Vintage Van Cleef & Arpels pour Homme.
Excellent choice, PalmBeach... Congrats!
While I am admittedly well outside your age group and we have very different tastes, the only one of those I would ever buy is Terre d'Hermes, and it is a great one for sure.
Easily Norne for me, followed by Baque
If you enjoy it then wear it whenever you want. I dislike the composition, so I don't wear it at all and can't report any results, sorry.
Portrait of a Lady
Completely different, and X is miles better than C, IMO.
Absolutely love both, but prefer Wonderwood by a hair.
While I agree with Dougczar that London is overrated, I absolutely can't stand L'Homme, so London wins easily.
Final skin test of Sulphur by nu_be
I recommend giving Bellagio for Men by Parlux a try. Fresh, citric and herbal, clean, inoffensive and very good smelling... Oh, and also quite inexpensive at under $20 a 100 ml bottle at online...
Le Parfum Denis Durand Couture by M. Micallef. This stuff smells superb!
Good experience with them here... I find the web site somewhat confusing as fragrances tend to be listed multiple times at different price points (as was the case with my recent order of Chopard's...
I dislike or am indifferent to every fragrance listed for all four of them so I guess for the purposes of the poll based on the listed fragrances it is a four-way tie. Now if the fragrances for Dior...
Agree completely. :-(
The new stuff seems to be missing the fir base among many other things... The current bottle I blind bought was all about a bergamot laced dirty cumin and black pepper fest mixed with a vague waxy...
Original Polo and Giorgio for Men primarily... and I still wear them both among others today.
What a "good friend" you are to give up your Bel Ami, TheAntagonist.
Bentley for Men Intense
In a word, "no".
Personally, I think Z-14 smells quite different, but way better. You can get the superior vintage version on the aftermarket for quite reasonable money, usually under $20 a bottle.
None of the above. Ylang 49 is my favorite.
Montale (not much of a fan of any, but) Black Aoud
Amouage Dia Man
Le Labo Ylang 49
Tom Ford (not much of a fan of any, but) Tobacco Vanille
Rykiel Homme Grey
Thanks for sharing. ;-)
As would I, followed by Derby.
I bought the current version last year blind and definitely regretted it. The current stuff is quite the disappointment, IMO.
Eau d'E by Bogue
Dia Man (which still is my favorite, even if you add in all the rest of the Amouage offerings into the mix).
I agree. It won't cost you anymore than the street prices of most or all of the ones listed and is a heck of a lot better smelling, IMO. One of the best tobacco fragrances on the market, especially...
Not dated, but very synthetic smelling... I'll also add that the vintage stuff that I recently got to sample thanks to Hedonist is *very* strong -- too strong, IMO... I am afraid I'm not a fan.
I can't choose because at least one fragrance in every selection I dislike.
Sulphur by nu_be
If I love a composition and it is within my budget I will attempt to acquire it whether it sells for $5 or $500+. While I may not have found any $5 winners yet, plenty of vintage sub $50 gems have...
Helium by nu_be
Vintage bottles of Jean-Louis Scherrer and Green Water by Jacques Fath.
Portrait of a Lady26088
Lillipur by Tiziana Terenzi26087
Indeed, this one.
LiquidNight by A Lab On Fire
Vintage Monsieur de Givenchy followed by vintage Givenchy Gentleman.
vintage Captain Molyneux
Oh I definitely sampled it back then. It went away before I got a chance to buy a bottle and until your mention of it in this thread, I had completely forgot about it. That said, one look at that...
The original Gentleman Only was disappointing, so I can't say I have great hope for this version...
Vintage Giorgio for Men
I prefer the Penhaligons, but prefer Trumpers Extract of West Indian Limes to both. It is by far the most realistic lime fragrance I have encountered. The problem with it is its extremely brief...
Oxygen by nu_be
Congrats!... Seeing that Metropolis bottle brings back great memories as it was one of the first fragrances I ever took notice of. All these years (decades?) later I still remember wanting to buy a...
Sulfur by nu_be
Of course I would tell them.
My "bottom five" have got to be these...
L'Eau d'Issey pour Homme
A Taste of Heaven
I find this kind of thinking quite interesting... To me, Terre d'Hermès is one of the most versatile fragrances on the market and is extremely easy to wear at any occasion year-round casual, formal...
Anyone can wear it, and this 80s powerhouse lover does frequently. When I purchased a bottle at Barney's Las Vegas it was being sold at the Men's counter upstairs, but honestly it would have made...
Phileas by Nina Ricci
That is the current (newer) inferior version with the tree moss listed. There is an older EA release version that smells just like the vintage.
Eva Kant by O'driù
In my case I absolutely do understand the hoopla as PPH is incredible smelling stuff in its vintage form. That said, I fully agree PPH Privé is even better, and it easily is my favorite of the two. ...
Oud Malaki by Chopard
Patou pour Homme (vintage) closely followed by Fahrenheit (vintage).
Its there, but not in your face. I own this one from a bad blind buy but am not a fan.
Eau d'E by Bogue
Not a huge fan of any of the choices, but I do at least like and own Acqua di Giò... Runner up would be Eau pour Homme.
While I could think of many, many other niche (or designer) brands I would recommend over Creed, if you are looking to that house then Jardin d'Amalfi and GIT are tops, IMO.
Sycomore followed by Eau de Cologne
Anat Fritz (original formula) by Anat Fritz
I love New York, but Pour Homme was a big miss for me when I blind bought it years ago; its lavender was just overpowering.
Terre d'Hermès is the best choice of the ones listed, IMO. That said, since it is apparently not an option, something like Tzora by Anat Fritz would make a great alternative (and I actually prefer...
A great deal of compositions favored by many Basenotes members and the general public do not appeal to me; far too many to mention. That said, we can start with the letter A... A for Aventus.
Portrait of a Lady
vintage Giorgio for Men
Ho Hang by Balenciaga25717
I don't like it, but I don't think it smells old school. Maybe if it did I would find it more appealing... To me it was just boring.
No, the dry down is *quite* similar, only much stronger. It pretty much focuses on the Aventus dry-down to the extreme. I can't stand the Aventus dry-down, and as such, I *really* can't stand...
Definitely Royal Vintage by Micallef.
Really enjoying my final skin test of Gold Rose Oudh by Tiziana Terenzi.
