  1. Re: More ocean than Heeley's SEL MARIN delivers?

    Thanks - will add several more to the list. I think sometimes we conceptualize the idea of a particular sensory experience, and then begin the search for scents that will support our individual...
  2. Re: More ocean than Heeley's SEL MARIN delivers?

    Appreciate all the suggestions! Haven't ruled marine scents out yet, since most of these I haven't tried. I understand some of them are not specifically 'oceanic', but share some similar...
  3. More ocean than Heeley's SEL MARIN delivers?

    I like Heeley's Sel Marin well enough, but still very much a 'cucumber sushi roll' vibe. Heavier commercial mainstream marine fragrances are not something I'm looking for (I smell them everywhere). ...
  4. Re: Blackbird Eau de parfum sample mix (vs Blackbird by Matriarch)?

    Thanks to you both for clearing up the Blackbird confusion from Seattle!
  5. Blackbird Eau de parfum sample mix (vs Blackbird by Matriarch)?

    Has anyone checked out the Blackbird Sample Mix yet? Am curious about it before purchasing.

    Re: SHOWER GELS with some staying power?

    YR's Ambre Noir sounds like a possibility - good to have an affordable option too. Thanks!
  7. Re: Reducing down my Niche Sample Wish List (the drier the better)

    More input - thanks guys! Looks like you've done your homework, Beck. Can cross off quite a few! Also appreciate your suggestions for a few others to check out: LM's Hard Leather, Grand Cuir and...
  8. Re: Reducing down my Niche Sample Wish List (the drier the better)

    Too bad - stays in Vegas then! Weird to be so totally exclusive to the point of being invisible. Their loss (financially anyway, I would hope). Seems there'd be a market for their perfumes over here,...
  9. Re: Reducing down my Niche Sample Wish List (the drier the better)

    Thanks for the heads up, deadidol. Will have to wait for the next trip to NY to check out Kerosene then. Maybe the Dior Mens Store in BH would carry Leather Oud - Maxfields used to, but haven't been...
  10. Re: Reducing down my Niche Sample Wish List (the drier the better)

    Thanks for all your input - it does help narrow things down. I did indeed plan on going to Scent Bar to check things out, but always try to reduce my list somewhat before venturing in (though they're...
  11. Reducing down my Niche Sample Wish List (the drier the better)

    Can't keep up with all the new niche scents out there and would like to get a few samples. Presently, my 'signature scent' is probably Encre Noire, with Bois d'Ascese, Luxe Patchouli and Eau de...

    Re: SHOWER GELS with some staying power?

    Thanks guys - appreciate the response. Leaning toward Diptyque Ombre dans L’Eau Shower Gel (since I like the fragrance a lot) and the Siskiyou one. Would be nice to save some dough, though, and will...

    SHOWER GELS with some staying power?

    Getting low on my favorite shower gel, CDG Man 2, but would like to try something else. Some days I don't feel like doing the cologne thing, and prefer a decent shower product. Previously had Moulton...

    Re: Non-powdery, but dry AMBER?

    Thanks - great to have several to choose from! Glad to have been reminded of the Bond No.9, since I now remember a woman friend wearing one of their ambers, which I liked (though not sure if it was...

    Non-powdery, but dry AMBER?

    Saw a good thread about dry ambers, but was wondering if it can be narrowed down to ones that are:
    1. Not powdery
    2. Very dry (not sweet) w/ minimal amount of vanilla (if any)

    In general,
    a....

    Re: Some Like it Dry

    You might check out some Slumberhouse scents as well (although I haven't) - Norne or Vikt, among a few others. Sounds like it could be the resinous/coniferous thing you were interested in (though...

    Re: Champ Smell by Modern Atelier?

    Yep, it could be kind of lame, agreed. The 'firewood' part could be smokey, which is something I am interested in.

    Saw this one on the net from a store called Need Supply Company, that described Champ Smell:

    Sticky: Re: Which fragrance gets you the most female compliments?

    CDG x Monocle "Hinoki", hands down. Two women (in two different departments at work) proceeded to buy it for their husbands after asking me about the scent.

    Self-tanner recommendations for 2012?

    Noticed there were only older posts addressing this issue of self-tanners (unless I missed something). Not really looking for the George Hamilton tan, rather just to have some color for the summer...
