Updated with lots of new stuff
Updated with Aoud Lemon Mint
Sadly, i didn't take photos but it was a legit looking flacon outside of having no label with name or date stamp or engraved on bottom or side or anywhere. Just wondering if anyone has come across...
I just came across a flacon of Aventus with no batch code and no front label either. The owner had no box no papers. I'm pretty sure its a newer batch as its heavy on the pineapple.
Updated with Montale Oudmazing, Mancera Aoud Line, Tom Ford Verte D'Encens & Tom Ford Costa Azzurra
Yeah, I noticed the same thing. Not sure what it means. Maybe they're updating their website. I couldn't not get them on the phone even with several calls. I received three orders from them so far...
I received my second order as well. Everything was good. Got a bottle of Oudmazing for a really good price and a few samples to boot. Now I'm waiting on a third order. Lol
Yes, I got tracking number the next day. It arrived on time and was the correct item. I did order a few more things after as well so lets see how those turn out. Fingers crossed.
Sorry to hear...
PineBarrens1973: You're very welcome! Enjoy the Lemon in Zest.
Bump. updated with Mancera Cedrat Boise & Kumkat Wood.
Same here. I got notice that it was shipped but no tracking number was provided. I'm goIng to sit tight and patiently wait. I'm in FL so shipping should only take a day or two.
Can we talk about Amouage Attars. Specifically colors of boxes and the order of release. I've been wondering this for a bit so I'm asking for help since I cannot find much information online.
Depends on how much scent you normally wear but I find that with two sprays and I'm good all day. Santal 33 is quite strong.
Wow, I had no idea that people had so many issues with them. It seems their customer service is indeed erratic. It does sound like they are a small shop. I live in south Florida and I keep meaning...
Thanks for the kind words CleverUsername.
Bump! Updated with Roja Amber Aoud.
Surrender To Chance has samples of The Night. I'm considering ordering a sample myself.
bump with updated
All splits are from my well kept and stored personal collection. They're ready to ship and are from recent / current formulation bottles unless other wise noted. Your decant will...
Currently trying Roja Musk Aoud on skin today. Very nice but so far I prefer Amber Aoud. Unless the dry down wows me that is.
I see.... I guess it's time to order some samples then.
Thanks Hednic much appreciated! I wont be in a hurry to hunt down a backup bottle then.
Yeah, I thought extraits were stronger as well. So confused. Im hoping it's the same though.
After a self imposed hiatus. I began sampling fragrances again (that's one of the dangers of lurking on this board) and I fell hard for this one. I just picked up a bottle of the extrait after...
L'Humaniste is a great scent. Very safe blind buy I also wish it were longer lasting but I help offset that by spraying it on my shirt. It hasn't stained any yet. i fear part of what makes it so...
Thanks. Pretty sure I used an 85mm 1.4
Thanks for all the replies everyone. And in case anyone is wondering my places STILL smells of TL.
I'm looking to for bottles (partial or otherwise) of:
Roja Dove - United Arab Emirates Parfum (UAE)
Roja Dove - Diaghilev
FYI, I am not looking to pay full retail as I can get a new one at...
Thanks for the heads up. There is too much counterfeit niche out there now. Unreal.
It was totally my fault. :sad: I wasn't holding it properly and it slipped, fell, broke and finally chugged out in what seemed like slow motion. I managed to pick it up quickly and saved about 50%....
No use crying over spilled leather?
Ok, so i went back for another sniff and spray of the 1872 Vetiver the other day and I must have gotten where I sprayed it on myself mixed up. Apparently I was smelling L or a mix of L and 1872...
You're welcome. I was surprised to they had them. A few hours in and it's about the vetiver, frankincense and some light amber but best of all some how the citrus (grapefruit i suppose) is still...
Saks Bal Harbour has testers. It isn't for sale yet though.
Thanks for the info. I smelled both of these today. Mandarin is nice and I can see it being a best seller for them as its really accessible but it's hard for me to get excited about. What really...
It was so awful. She can't sing live
STH. Though i hardly wear it anymore.
Kobe. All week
How are you supposed to smell C for Men when the room was already pretty much filled with C for Women? Beautiful room, beautiful host/presenter but still kind of a weird way of presenting a fragrance...
I just noticed the shooting stars line is now $265 on Luckyscent.com :vrolijk_26:
good to see this line coming to a more...
I finally bought:
and also a 15ml bottle of Dhofar
Yes, I've ordered from them before and had no issues. They are a small shop in Delray Beach, FL. I keep meaning to go check them out in person one of these days as they are less than an hour away...
Email them at firstname.lastname@example.org and explain to them that their fragrances are not easy to find in your area. I have had mixed results, sometimes they send them sometimes I never hear back...
Best price Ive seen is from FourSeasonsProducts.com using their 20% off discount code ( LOVE ) which should bring the price down to just over $200. Still costly but I hope that helps to soothe the...
What he said.
To the original poster: Lots of people have contacted Creed directly concerning variations in their batches. The only answer I have seen, and perhaps someone will come forward with other information,...
If I remember correctly I'm the one who bought your bottle. I too sold it off not long after. I kept a small decant of which I still have most of it.
It was just so non-remarkable to me. I liked...
Agreed, Dia is one of the best from this house for sure! Subtle but persistent, lasts all day on me.
SOTD: Creed - Green Valley
SOTE: Le Labo - Vanille 44
My guess (and I could be totally wrong) is that it's Givaudan Oud Opur and cypriol oil.
good luck with that.
Brrr, Its a little shilly in here.
Thanks, that is not me. Im more of a behind the camera kind of guy lol. It's a friend of mine I did some head shots for. We used some of my stuff (i.e. headphones and glasses, etc).
Nikon D700, ...
Ok, so these are one of the frames I'm currently into. Chrome Hearts - Straight Up 1. I got them last year and i've bought two other ones since. I have issues lol
Nice frames, Hedonist. My favorite lines are at the moment are Oliver Peoples & Chrome Hearts. I'll post some photos when I have time to take a few.
Although not my favorite, Black Violet doesn't register as feminine to my nose.
You can always try it but it doesn't sound like a good combo to me. Why not just wear Tuscan Leather by itself.
Creed - Green Valley today
we are back to our regular temps down here (80s) so.....
CREED - Windsor
Sorry to hear about this. With ebay/paypal you do have some recourse. If you contact eBay/Paypal and let them know that you received counterfeit products and they will more than likely side in your...
I know what you mean. i get the urge periodically. I seem to purge and then before you know it I've bought new frags.
double post, sorry
Wow, for a luxe brand I would have at least expected a reply, a 'thank you for the information" would have sufficed. A sample or two to offset the lost ml's wouldn't have hurt and would have gone a...
There hasn't been much buzz about these. I'd check out #12 (incense) and #13 (leather). The iris one was nice but too fleeting.
Also the prices don't shock me as much as they did originally. I...
Thanks, I have champagne tastes and a Ritz cola budget lol
Congrats! The top notes are just amazing. I recently picked up a 75ml bottle in the marketplace.
I like it but I can't smell it after 1 hour which is unusual for me. I really can't justify the purchase. The SA gave me some extra carded Royal Oud samples. They have your name on it.
Unfortunately I have many. Photography, I DJ, I collect vinyl, sound and light gear, sunglasses, silver biker jewelry. And I just transitioned and made photography my career.
and I have to force...
Today I wore:
perfect for the 55 degree weather we are having.
Saks Dadeland had that promotion on the 30th. It was a last minute thing and I got a txt from my SA there the same day. I almost wasn't able to make it... Almost.
My local Creed Counter had a promotion, bring in an empty Creed Atomizer and they would fill it with any fragrance of my choice. No purchase necessary. I had a red one that i originally had intended...
Creed - Royal Oud for a cold evening in Miami.
Congrats! its a really special scent. I don't wear BO often but when i do i prefer it over the edp.
Whoa! Why would they do that?
more than likely it will be Kobe.
Le Labo - Vanille 44
Nice upcoming purchases everyone.
My next purchase is going to be a flacon of Windsor 09 that a Creed SA tracked down for me. Then when my wallet recovers I see a bottle Xerjoff Kobe and a...
It lasts quite well on me. About 7 hours or so, but it has quite bit of iso e super if my nose does not deceive me. and that could trigger olfactory fatigue.
My pet peeves is the "I'm sorry that has been discontinued" when you know that it hasn't. But then again i don't shop much with SA's like are like that.
Xerjoff - NIO from a sample
I don't find them anything alike and I wouldn't hesitate to to have both in the same wardrobe.
I got myself a bottle of Vanille 44 and restocked my supplies with almost 50ml of Windsor (first batch).
You're killing me but I'm oh so tempted.
I couldn't help it, i tried to resist but the lure was too strong.
I just ordered a bottle of Le Labo's Vanille 44 from Luckyscent before November is over and so are their city exclusives. I...
Congrats on the sale.
My guess is that the other seller is a Basenoter as well.
Good Lord!... I'll wait until they have the refills available, if ever.
SOTD: Creed - Royal Oud
I didn't care for Montales Original Oud but going by your description I must try Kilians Extreme Oud. I really liked Pure Oud so I can only imagine Im gonna love Extreme Oud.
Welcome to Basenotes. Sorry you're having that issue
I am not sure what it is but I would try spraying on my shirt or some other piece of clothing. It should solve that problem and also make the...
Compared to oud oils its not even close. If you're after the real deal oils are the way to go. But compared to other oud scents its not bad at all. The closest thing to it is Montales Original Oud...
I get 6-8 hours but other people have told me that they could still smell it on me even in the 10-12 hour range.
Vivace does sound nice.
They must really like purple over at Xerjoff. I had Dhofar in the presentation box and the box was purple. I don't get it.
$116 for 15ml of Vanille 44. *Sigh*
Santal 33 for me as well.
It's fantastic. I've been wearing it most of this past week. Looks like I'll be ordering a bottle of this soon.
My SOTD is Santal 33 by Le Labo
I was very surprised by this one. The sandalwood, cedar, papyrus combo is just spectacular. I can't stop smelling myself.
Wow, so in a split it will be only $340 for 50ml.
or $6.80 per ml.
Fueille Verte is my SOTD. I wish I had an '06 sample to compare.
I finally tried this one over the weekend. It reminds me of L'Artisan's Tea for Two.
$300 for 75ml? Thanks but I'll pass. They gave me a sample so I'll give it another wearing but at this point...
To me it always reminds me of Bleecker Street with those Violet aroma chemicals.
