Boozy rum and rich patchouli.
My pick for the best/funniest description!:beer:
Mine is Montale Aoud Cuir D'arabie. Should be renamed Montale Peau L'horse Naturel.
Montale Dark Aoud
I've been here almost since the beginning (as Ailrc) and I too take breaks from the madness that is fragrance collecting. I even remember the Cologne Guy website.
Drooling at all the beautiful...
Ahhh.... maybe NOT.
When you're going to spend this much money, I advise sampling first. I got mine at The Perfumed Court.
My last group of samples included Tom Ford Neroli Portofino and Acqua Di Parma Colonia...
something fresh: citrus or aquatic
something conservative: woody/fougere
something for dates/nightlife: gourmand/oriental
For a guy in his 20's to 30's I'd go with:
Aqua Di Gio or Chanel Pour...
Dated and generic are.. well... generic terms. Very non-specific.
That's why I appreciate foetidus' reviews. He puts a lot of thought into them and to me is the gold standard. :smiley:
I just tried my samples of FEA and Norne.
Norne - Foresty, camphorous
FEA - Piney, resinous, incense
Fille en Aiguilles
Offering relief from the
sun's rays, the pine shelters
Looks like Basenotes is now a political website...

You just can't go wrong with Creed Pure White Cologne.
You have a very nice selection to choose from.
Montale Aoud Cuir d’Arabie - "fecal"
Montale Dark Aoud - "sinister"
MFK Oud Velvet Mood and Oud Cashmere Mood - "burning tires"
Pure Oud By Killian and Oud Mona di Orio - "barnyard"
Chanel Pour Monsieur
Armani Eau Pour Homme
These are easy to like.
I understand that some may perceive you as some kind of "girly man". Friends and relatives may give you some no-so-good-natured ribbing.
All I can do is tell you to wear it proudly. When they ask...
I believe mine is from 1990.
It was a very good year...
I would do a lot of testing on some of the heavily hyped scents and see what I like.
You can only wear so much...
New York by Parfums de Nicola´
For simplicity I like the Dior exclusives.
The whole Xerjoff line makes me drool - like Nio with its art deco engraving and silk bag... mmmmm.
I guess I missed the boat in 1995. I sometimes show up late for the party.
JPG Le Male
I was too old for this in '95, what the hell am I doing with it now?
It makes me happy.
Okay, I'll try it... oh oh!
Nope. I think it's just fine for any man.
Cool Water has a peppermint and geranium thing going on.
I get a violet leaf and verbena scent with GIT.
Slightly similar but not the same.
Could you please point me out to this deal? - Sartorial (1.7 EDT, gel and DEO) $59.99
I can't seem to find it.
If I was driving, I would have gotten into an accident! You saved me a lot of time saying exactly what I wanted to say.:beer:
Remember only the good stuff smells like poo (Dior, Mona di Orio)...
When they came for the cigarettes, you didn't mind because you weren't a smoker.
When the they came for your frags... you get the picture.
This is what happens when a single person claims to be...
I appreciate all compliments from anyone.
I think mixing Joop! and 1 Million is written about in the book of Revelations. :evil:
I ordered 1.7 oz Bvlgari Aqua from Fragrancenet, received 3.4 oz instead.
I was charged for the 1.7 oz only. I never complained.:thumbsup:
No - but I wish I had free handouts of clinical deodorant to give out to people who think body odour is sexy.
I was just wearing this one yesterday and I was thinking this could be the mens answer to Chanel No. 5.
What I mean is it's always in style. It's in the same league as Chanel Pour Monsieur but I...
I've never tried it or even seen it before last week. It was $20 at my local drug store... I may give it a go.
I also have Virgin Island Water in my rotation - tough competition for SSSB.
I'm a big Guerlain Homme fan. A few years ago I purchased Chanel Allure Homme Edition Blanche for my trip to the Caribbean. While at the airport, I tested some Guerlain Homme before boarding the...
Almost anything that is:
-very difficult to find
-more expensive than Creed or Bond #9
-parfum, extrait, or intense versions
-Tom Ford (Private Blend collection only)
Because you like Polo, you may be a fan of chypres.
"This sharp scent is based on harmony of oak moss, labdanum, patchouli and bergamot."
You also may like:
Coriolan (if you can find...
I have only tried two different batches but the first batch fragrance was non-existent and the second was too birchy/smoky. I gave up.
I also have MI, VIW and GIT and think they are great.
I returned Givenchy pour Homme to the store within an hour of buying it. They weren't too keen on taking it back.
One of the weakest scents I've ever tried.
I purchased Aventus blind online and...
Thanks for the support folks!
As a follow-up, I just received an e-mail from PayPal telling me that my money has been refunded.
Too bad royalperfumery didn't do this in the first place.
I have a teeny-tiny bottle of the original and I purchased a new bottle last year.
I believe the new version uses tree moss instead of oakmoss but the difference is very slight.
The new Polo is...
It might be a good idea to have a pinned list of retailers to avoid.
I placed an order with Royalperfumery on May 31 and have not had a reply since.
The money was taken from Mastercard to PayPal. ...
I think you would like D&G The One.
Looking at your comments I would say NOT... but Anthony Hopkins might like it . :laugh:
It's not only what you wear, but how you wear it.
I always got a fresh fir smell from Sung Homme. Same with Camp Beverly Hills.
I found them most fresh and pleasant.
My favourite summer scent is Guerlain Homme.
Both are fougeres.
Fougere compositions include notes of lavender, geranium, moss and wood. This group primarily includes perfumes for men.
I like both very much. (Sartorial is now my next...
VIW is a vacation in a bottle.
L'eau d'Issey Pour Homme & Aqua di Gio. Too sharp.
AND ALMOST ANYTHING WITH AOUD/OUD!!!
Many seem to associate oriental scents as warm and romantic and therefore sexy.
Some also find fresh fougeres to be sexy.
Sexy is in the nose of the beholder.
Creed MI lasts a long time, but very close to the skin.
Same with Creed Himalaya.
GIT lasts a long time for me and projects very well.
Gucci PH1 dies out in under an hour.
Have been digging JPG Le Male lately. My next purchase.
I have the original DH and find it fresher than the somewhat sticky newer DHI.
DH stays fairly close to the skin while DHI projects more.
Chanel Egoiste Platinum is similar to Montblanc Legend so I would pick one of the other two.
Guerlain Homme is a fresh lime, mint vetiver mojito-like fragrance that works well in the warmer weather....
I bought this one blind in a tin gift pack and love it.
A few years ago a small perfume shop in my area had 3 unopened small bottles for sale at $19.99 each.
Like an idiot, I...
GIT can really impress. It's very green and fresh.
One of the closest things to a "sure thing" scent.
It could be Iso E Super which is found in many fragrances.
I find Black Afgano both woody and earthy. Rich and moist like the woods after a rainfall.
I sometimes wear a fragrance that reflects my environment and mood.
We're now in the full swing of spring (finally) and my top guns are:
Green Irish Tweed
with support from...
Virgin Island Water
All of my samples have been purchased from Luckyscent. I wish they could send their bottles through USPS as well.
High end stores are limited in my area, overpriced and cheap giving out samples.
Hey John. Generally speaking, citrus, aquatic and vetiver based fragrances are good for warm weather because they don't tend to get as cloying as spicy orientals.
Swiss Army is pretty close.
I didn't know you met Sarah Jessica Parker!:2vrolijk_08:
Guerlain Homme took a beating but I loved it on first smell and is a regular in my summer rotation.
I was plenty insecure in my youth but my passion for fragrance has nothing to do with it.
It started with aftershaves. Boys didn't wear fragrance but men did.
As I tried different aftershaves...
The funny thing is, I was one of those who got the lady's purse on my very first sniff....
Vetiver Extraordinaire used to be my achilles heel. Now I'm fascinated by it.
I find that given enough time, I can "get" almost any perfume.
I'm saving Dior Homme Intense for Christmas.
Some of you may have heard of that one before.:shocked:
Knize Ten. When she smells this, she may think you're not kidding.23195
My feelings exactly.
It's a bloody steal!
Great in the summer or winter.
Fresh and cool in the beginning, rich and smooth on drydown.
Weak sillage but decent longevity.
Works for young and older guys.
This looks like a problem with the re seller, not Creed.
If I were to purchase one of these I would need to smell it first, then I would expect to get it at a greatly reduced price like a tester.
In the past, I have seen Rive Gauche Pour Homme for $25 at Walmart. I have also purchased Rochas Lui from Fragrancenet for $30 for a large tester. These are both top-notch fragrances.
Chanel Allure Homme Sport
Only 1 backup 50ml Corliolan
It was only $19.95 :shocked:
My guess is Giorgio Beverly Hills for Men.
It came out around 1984.
Giorgio for Men by Giorgio Beverly Hills is a Oriental Woody fragrance for men. Giorgio for Men was launched in 1984. Top notes...
I recently bought a 4 oz GIT from
One of the best purchases I ever made.
I wanted to try the new scent - Paco Rabanne One Million - so I sprayed my forearm a couple of times at the store before going to my friends' place.
Within 10 minutes I was washing my arm....
Summer = Guerlain Homme time for me.
Fall/Winter = M7, Dior Homme Intense, Gucci Pour Homme
Creed - I can get most at a good discount and find them easy to wear.
I like the quality of the Montales' I've sampled.
The CdGs' are always interesting.
Amouage Epic is amazing.
There are so...
I'm thinking that the soldier is in a perfume shoppe planning on bringing something home for the missus.
For some, this was their first trip to France.
For many, this was their last.
Please note unfortunately, we are currently not offering delivery service to Canada. We have temporarily suspended our shipping services so that we can enhance our Canadian shopping experience....
Got these both for the regular GIT price.
Gucci Pour Homme
Green Irish Tweed
Hey again BN'ers,
Your responses to my question about citrus based frags were very helpful. I'm wondering what your favorite wood-centric frags are.
... whatever you...
Joop! in one hand, 1 Million in the other. Even if it didn't stop the perp, it would make it easy to find him.
I'm going to guess that Don Draper (Mad Men) would wear Chanel Pour Monsieur.
Tony Soprano might have worn CK One, but that's what was popular when the show was filmed. And besides, he hung out...
By Killian Straight to Heaven has an excellent rum note along with a patchouli note.
Expensive, but very good - a must sample.
I got both in my last sample order and they are terrific (and expensive!) :cry:
I also got Sartorial and will buy it soon.
I heard this one smells like watermelon:
Chic for Men
BY CAROLINA HERRERA
Guerlain Homme is my goto fragrance for summer.
Now if only the damn weather would co-operate. :tongue:
I think he means similar to Versace Pour Homme Oud Noir.
