I voted for Coromandel. Jersey would be my very close second choice.
I currently have 4 large 125ml backup bottles of Rive Gauche Pour Homme in the tin can and 2 60ml back up bottles of Rive Gauche Pour Homme Intense. Although it may seem ridiculous to have so many...
Although I selected Man from your list as I do really like it, I actually rather prefer many of Bvlgari's other offerrings. Eau the Vert Extreme is probably the best Bvlgari overall (I'm on my third...
Sorry that link was meant to be www.cityperfume.com.au
I got my bottle at city perfume.com.au
I was quite surprised with this one too. Not at all what I expected but very nice.
I'm also loving Davidoff Leather Blend. It's almost a perfect leather; not too animalistic but still a decent...
Davidoff Leather Blend
Les Exclusifs de Chanel Jersey
Christian Dior La Collection Privée Ambre Nuit
I can't say for certain (as it was at least 25+ years ago) but I would guess either Kouros or Sport de Paco Rabanne; both of which I can remember buying with my own money shortly after starting my...
Chanel Les Exclusifs Coromandel & Sycomore
Hi Tha_Doggg, so far I'm loving Terre D'Hermes Eau Tres Fraiche. It has the truest grapefruit up front that I think I've ever come across. It also seems to have excellent longevity which is a bit...
A back-up bottle of Armani Prive Les Editions Couture Nacre (the second last bottle left in Australia I believe) and Emporio Armani Diamonds for men Summer Edition.
Emporio Armani Diamonds, Terre D'Hermes Eau Tres Fraiche, and a backup bottle of Givenchy Insense Ultramarine (now discontinued).
Musc Ravageur (oh what a beauty!), Armani Code Ice, a back up bottle of Armani Prive Eau de Jade, and I was gifted a 30ml bottle of Penhaligon's Blenheim Bouquet. Not a bad haul if I do say so...
I own all 3 and I agree with the consensus that the differences are quite minimal. The original is still my favourite but I do reach for the other two on occasion. The light and the original are...
Dior Homme Parfum and Bleu de Chanel Parfum
Count me in. I'll be heading to the Sydney store on the weekend to check if or when they will have it.
Perfume Calligraphy Rose by Aramis.
Me too. Rive Gauche Pour Homme is far and away the scent I reach for more than any other.
Thanks. I'm particularly enjoying the Encens Satin. I was lucky to get the Ombre & Lumiere in Sydney Australia as apparently the whole city only got 3 bottles and the whole country only got 15...
Armani Prive Encens Satin, Armani Privé Ombre & Lumiere & Azzaro Club Men. I also recently received in the post a vintage bottle of Hermes Equipage and a bottle of Lalique Hommage. Both the...
Another comment I would add is that in my personal experience the sillage and longevity were very good. I have worn Fahrenheit Parfum to work on several occasions and the sillage was quite...
I'm definitely in the thumbs up camp on this one. Ken_Russell sums it up nicely as being richer and more complex than the original.
I would imagine that if there is any disappointment with this,...
I paid AUS$56 for a 100ml bottle. Retail price in Australia is well over $120.
Comme des Garcons 2 Man
The best laid plans ...... I actually just bought Man 2 Comme des Garcons as I got a real bargain for it.
Me too. I also plan on purchasing Armani Prive Encens Satin and Ombre & Lumiere.
Me too! Mirto is my favourite.
1. Amber scent - Armani Prive' Ambre Orient
2. Vanilla scent - L`Artisan Havana Vanille
3. Oud scent - Armani Prive' Oud Royal
4. Leather scent - Knize 10
5. Gourmand scent - Mugler Pure...
Another + for AdG Essenza. I also prefer all of Fahrenheit's flankers over the original; which just doesn't work on my skin. I would also add to that Pure Malt, Pure Havane, Ice Men & B Men over A...
Sorry :o) when the op wrote "Great Smell / Bad Performance. Who WIN? " I thought the op was asking to judge based on the criteria of smell and performance. Regardless, I'd still pick Code.
I'd have to go with Code due to The One's abysmal performance on my skin!
The most I have spent so far was on a bottle of Armani Prive Nuances (AUS) $650. Worth every scent!
Armani Privé Eclat de Jasmin (which I bought last week and arrived today)
and Rasikh Syed Junaid Alam (which I also bought last...
I own and love full bottles of almost the entire line; with the exception of Eclat de Jasmin, Ambre Soie, and Oranger Alhambra (although I do have samples of each). The absolute standouts for me...
I have a bottle of YSL Kouros Eau de Sport (1986).
My favourite from the Armani Prive 'Eau' collection. In fact I recently got a back up bottle as the Armani Sales Rep in the Sydney store informed me it was being discontinued. That was about six...
Designer: Rive Gauche Pour Homme
Niche: Interlude Man
Underrated: Moschino Uomo?
Rive Gauche Pour Homme in the tin for me. I really do like the Mugler, but nowhere near as much as I love RGPH.
I went with Avignon in first place with Zagorsk a close second.
Zegna Essenze Haitian Vetiver
Just went and bought the Haitian Vetiver to add to the whole collection. It really is very nice and reminds me most of Dior's exclusive Vetiver in that it's quite linear and really smells almost the...
+ 1 on Javanese Patchouli from Zegna's Essenza Collection. Also from your list I voted for Serge Lutens - Bornéo 1834.
I'm quite a fan of this line and have the following from your list:
Insense, Ultramarine, Ultramarine Blue Laser, Ultramarine Ice Cube, Ultramarine Wild Surf, Ultramarine Ocean Spirits Atlantic,...
Unfortunately both project very little and neither lasts long on my skin at all; maybe an hour tops.
Rive Gauche Pour Homme without a doubt.
This is one of my most favourite recent FB purchases. It's deep, rich, smoky and slightly bitter and although I don't have that many myrrh centric fragrances, I understand that is exactly what myrrh...
Another vote for Armani Privé - Oud Royal & I'm really loving Zegna's Indonesian Oud.
I chose L'Artisan, but I only have the Extreme version and haven't tried the original. I also love Dune pour homme and wear it often.
A great one that you missed is Mark Jacobs Fig Splash.
From this list I selected Bvlgari Eau Parfumée au Thé Vert, but I was actually meaning the Extreme version. Although I like GPH II, it only lasts about an hour on my skin, so with such major...
my (very well kept) 30ml, 50ml, &100ml bottles are safe and secure from the ravages of time! But seriously, this was once a stand-out great juice from a fragrance house that has long since given up...
Agreed. Although I do own both, I prefer the richness of the EDP.
Rive Gauche Pour Homme (original tin can)
Summer Fizz, Frozen, Freeze Me, Deep, Game, Summer Dive & Sea, Scents & Sun. My least favourite would be Cool Water Deep (very, very weak & smells like pine disenfectant) and my favourite would be...
My pleasure :happy:
FYI, off topic I just received an e-mail invitation from the Sydney Zegna store to attend the launch of their new Uomo fragrance line next week. Although I have read several...
Not paticularly old, but still fairly rare nowadays are almost full and original bottles of Givenchy Insense (1993), Davidoff Original (1984), Davidoff Relax (1990), Kouros Eau de Sport (1986),...
Actually I was surprised how dominant the rose is in this. It's not so much in the top notes but quite noticeable as the fragrance settles; at least on my skin.
I'm still testing this so I hope...
OK, so I went and tested the whole Essenze collection today and walked out having bought a bottle of Indonesian Oud.
I haven't had time to fully digest Indonesian Oud or the others, but I'll give...
In no particular order:
Azzaro pour Homme Elixir, Essenza di Zegna, Givenchy pour homme, L'Essense de Cerutti, Chopard Noble Cedar, Perry Ellis Platinum Label, Python Uomo, Kenneth Cole RSVP,...
I'll make sure I'm wearing my suit when I go to the Sydney Zegna store to test! :cheesy:
In response to my further recent enquiry to the Sydney Zegna store (who previously denied all knowledge of the new Essenze line), I received the following reply:
"Thank you for your enquiry.
Thanks. I was pretty stoked too :thumbsup:
Out of the whole Armani Prive collection I liked most of them, but really loved maybe 4 or 5, including Cedre Olympe. The other one I almost bought was...
Armani Prive Cuir Amethyste (wonderful & very longlasting leather), Armani Privé Oud Royal (really warm and actually smells like oud!) & Robert Piguet Bois Noir (gorgeous drydown).
Kenneth Cole Signature.
Zino Davidoff (but not on the street, on a train as I was getting off).
I don't mind this one at all, but I don't reach for it too often. It reminds me a bit of Hypnose Homme but lighter.
[QUOTE=del;2912274]I find AHS and AHS Eau Extreme totally different. The former is sharper, and the latter is balmy/sweeter. Eau Extreme has a lasting power, with very good projection on my skin, and...
Although I own and love both, for overall scent it has to be the Dior Homme.
I walked into the Zegna Sydney store last week and they hadn't even heard of these! I don't know if they will even make it down under :sad:
Chopard Noble Cedar.
Tough to pick, but I'd have to go with Essenza. I also love Blue Mediterraneo - Mirto di Panarea.
mlsweeney I'll swipe your Philosykos.
+ 1. Although I really like the smell, MI just isn't worth the price.
I've recently come to really embrace Essenza. IMHO it is the better scent. I don't find it cloying or too strong.
Serge Lutens Cuir Mauresque & Carbone de Balmain
I have quite a few that easily fall into this catagory. Off the top of my head I'd say:
Acqua di Parma Colonia Intensa, Mugler Cologne, Blue de Chanel, Z Zegna, Zegna Colonia, Rive Gauche Pour...
I couldn't have said it better myself; including the back-up bottles of RGPH!:wink:
I agree 100%. Live Jazz contains a very strong vegetal note that I can't get past. Roadster is very nice, but I do have an issue with longevity.
My absloute new favourite from Hermes is Elixir des Merveilles! I quite like Bel Ami too.
Bvlgari Pour Homme. I adore this one, but it barely lasts a couple of hours, even when using the shower gel, after shave balm and body lotion!
My second choice would be D & G - The One, although...
Creed's Virgin Island Water; the large bottle for about AUS$170. I bought it because I liked some of their other offerrings (GIT, Tabarome) and I guess I believed the hype. I was quite dissapointed...
Acqua di Parma Colonia Intensa
How about Acqua di Parma Colonia Essenza. A very strong citrus top note and a really nice woody drydown. Lasts for ages too!
Apart from Kouros Eau de Sport this is my favourite flanker in the Kouros line. In fact I bought 2 full back up bottles in case it suddenly dissapears (it's already a little scarce)!
I really like Bvlgari's men's scents, and find their best performing one's are Blv, Aqva, & Eau Parfumee au The Vert Extreme.
Having said that, some do suffer from terrible longevity & sillage;...
Update: Sorry I forgot to mention for those that are interested, my bottle arrived in Australia all the way from the USA in perfect order; no leaks or other problems.
Also, it lasted a good 6 to...
Just received my full bottle today and I think that RunSun's review sums it all up perfectly. This is not a replacement for Aventus, but its certainly not a bad $30 scent.
+1. I've got a recently purchased EDT (2012) & I've still got the original after shave splash & a bottle of the balm too (1998) and all three bottles say "Pour Homme". I've never seen a bottle that...
So many to choose from. Despite my tastes changing from time to time, the following will always remain 10 out of 10:
Rive Gauche Pour Homme
I own and like both of these but the problem I have with GPHII is that on my skin it has abysmal sillage and longevity. At most I get about 2 to 3 hours out of it. In contrast Blue de Chanel lasts...
Me too - I couldn't resist!
I quite like the smell of VIW, but as others have mentioned it's not very versatile and I do have a real problem with both longevity and projection. I would swear blind that when I tested this on my...
YSL first with Givenchy a close second.
Although I don't really think anything can be an exact substitute for Gucci Pour Homme, I have found that the closest to the same 'feeling' is probably Carbone de Balmain.
Agreed. Every week despite a heartfelt promise to myself that I'll never buy another frag until I've at least finished a bottle of something else, I find myself either contemplating buying one or...
YSL Rive Gauche Pour Homme
Serge Lutens' Chergui
- - - Updated - - -
YSL Rive Gauche Pour Homme
Great post. I believe there are loads of choices in this catagory.
I'd start with some of Acqua di Parma's offerrings. Any of their Blu Mediterraneo range are good for casual wear and Essenza...
I voted for other = Givenchy or YSL. If I had to choose from that list (except 'other') I would probably go for Creed first and Dior second.
