So? How do you rate it?
Cologne Russe is next one. It`s typical cologne with some warm (poudre-amber-musk-leather) sillage :)
First, where did you get the list of ingredients?
How many of them are in the list?
Could you show us?
Cause it`s doubtful that one can find it easily in Internet.
I believe that Couros The...
Already available on official MFK site web-shop :)
Best alternative to Cuiron by smell is Piper Leather by Illuminum.
But not in price, sorry...
tried Tenebra - and it`s grrrrreeeaaat tuberose poison! :)
other one which name I forgot - is the Chanel #5 reworkes & repacked :)))
Rain smelled like Green Irish Tweed & Cool Water in more...
That is great green flower leather, sirs! :) And not so expensive too!
Cuir de Russie Chanel - extrait
I do wear CDR in vintage EDT and extrait. feels extraordinaire.
but I could find some objections too -
1) mentioned weekness and lack of sillage;
and 2) the smell of flowers+aldehydes could...
my only interest is of Aleksandr - it named after Russian poet and his famous duel.
And I HOPE that it would not be just another amber+leather scent `cause there`re a lot of them on the market.
It`s been a long while :)
About winter garden - say that to Jean Claude Ellena ;))))))
Any ideas about new Jardin by Hermes for 2012?
I could only remember Hermes collection of Les Jardins - Le Jardin sur le Toit with pear.
And I could not believe that this concept has not been stolen by others.
Please, could you help me to...
OK, some more info about chypres was found with help of Gilles Thevenin of Lubin Parfums. He sent me a screen of perfume book published in XVIII century (Traite des Odeurs by Dejean, of 1764.

my former business partner signature perfume. it`s very distinctive scent indeed.
Rick, I`m pretty sure that he does participate in every creative meeting of LVMH devoted to new perfumes.
And meeting means - he`s just one of the (i believe rather BIG) team :)
Thanks rickbr, for your attention to my GQ.ru blog :)
Indeed, the perfumer refers to extrait-parfum version of the scent, which I haven`t seen for some years. And I still believe in my good luck...
Some centuries ago when galant people wore one scent for the long time, others complimented it as the perfume comes from their skin as their own BO scent. well, I could not...
Angelique Encens by Guerlain... hmmm, sorry, Creed!
I have got very guerlainesque feeling from that scent :)
the great but almost unknown gem from three kings - citrus cologne dried by olibanum aka frankincense and labdanum.
I found Leather Oud as my pick from the new collection (along with Mitzah). This scent is great and contains real oud oil from Indonesia - but still it has european not asian face...
Vetiver Annick Goutal
Ylang by Compagnie de Provence
simple mellow flower&woods scent to comfort :)
My collection worth enough to feel good and content :)
Fat Electrician by ELDO
silky vetiver with gourmand touch
I feel you.
But I happen to like CN Homme so much that I`d say it`s one of my best finds. I like the spice section especially.
By the way - it got some prizes in Italy lately :)
Happy New 2011 Year!
Eau de Monsieur Annick Goutal to wake up and energize myself :)
I`m in doubts that copper stoppered version was true to the original made back in 50`s of XX century - but anyway I enjoy this jubilee edition so much that bought two bottles more to make some stock.

Mitsouko parfum (c) 1967
X for Men Clive Christian.
Good cardamom frag. But I prefer smooth Invasion Barbare MDCI to this regal stiff cologne anyway.
I`ve never shaved with Barbasol, but my Nivea For Men Hypoallergenic shaving foam (white can) smells alike RGPH YSL.
And I like to layer them.
Etat Libre d`Orange made a new Josefine Baker perfume.
Pineapple and Jasmine sounds feminine - but who cares!? :)
This scent has won Russian Fifi-2010, so I also wonder why?
Chanel`s, Cartier`s and Dior`s prolongation of their Exclusive lines :)
Any new from Duchaufour :)
X for men by Clive Christian
good cardamom cologne with moderate sillage, but I like Invasion Barbare MDCI Parfums more.
Goodlife is citrus-green while Womanity is sweet ambery washing powder.
Isn`t it some kind of difference here?
(Figs are here too, but the perfumes have different context)
Santal de Mysore by Serge Lutens Shiseido

I`m waiting for the samples of Atelier Colognes.
I got my info about Indonesian oud oil directly from Francois Demachy, the perfumer of the line.
Anyway - any description is only descriptor words
floral and chypre leather for men?
It should be iris(orris) and ionones to make leather powdery.
It could be carnation as it goes well with cloves.
It could be ylang-ylang - as it was made in...

Man by Ormonde Jayne
It`s great scent itself too.
I did try it in Pitti Fragranze 2010 as I found out now by its notes (then it was named Eau Nordic).
The scent itself is some kind of Eau Noire Christian Dior (remember...
My first 2011 frag will be FAREB by Huitieme Art Parfums.
I was thinking of it from the very first news. But then I found tobacco in basenotes - and almost forget about the scent as it tends to make any scent more sweet.
Haven`t smell it for now (and who...
Black Agar base by Givaudan from Perfumer`s Apprentice.
Good tenacity, excellent smooth feeling, altogether reminds me of Duro (Nasomatto). Will make a two-hands test at home to find similarities...

I have a bottle of it - 125 ml. Great oud - it fits me and oud wood itself even better than Royal Oud by KIlian! :)
Good old Bel Ami Hermes from deluxe leather edition :) how great are spices and vetiver in winter!
Modern Grey Flannel is GREEN by BYREDO :)
Thanks for the replies, guys! :)
I have to buy French-Russian vocabulary first :)
Anyway - citrus cologne as clean masculine perfume sounds as a good idea.
Any ideas about the name?
Is it Mister Clean renamed for French Quebec (Monsieur No)?
Is it French nickname of Soviet Foreign Affairs Minister "Mister No" Kosygin?
Is it some film\literature hero?
Just received a bottle of vintage Monsieur NET cologne by Jean Patou that I`ve been hunting on ebay for more than a year.
Aromatic citrus cologne.
Neither - nor.
Piper Nigrum LV and Havana Aramis are the pepper blasts.
But anyway, I`d encourage you to try Bang.
Hermes people, just look at modern Guerlain perfumes and beware!

Good old Musc Ravageur by Frederic Malle
it`s good autumnal cologne
The price is outstanding - looks like they are aiming into higher niche segment.
My vintage bottle of parfum (from 60`s) costed me just mere 80 bucks.
Nevertheless I`d love to try this new perfume...
I did smell it - flowery powdery perfume. With slight suede accent.
Reminded me of flour of another L`Artisan perfume ))
