Does it smell like "Feeling Man"? If no, then I will pass... Hint, hint.

Does it smell like "Feeling Man"? If no, then I will pass... Hint, hint.
Eau Sauvage (regular) smells sweet when compared to ES Cologne in side by side test... ESC is sour, arid and acrid, devoid of any sweetness. Works really well in hot & humid weather. It is nice but I...
I can't detect anything that Creed lists as its notes. To my nose it smells weird, "chemical" but not in an offensive way but not pleasant either. Pass.
Please don't let it be a sweet mess. We need something that puts hair on your chest and/or chin!
I sure hope it doesn't smell like that... Pick Dior Homme Intense for a sweet Dior.
Eau Sauvage isn't discontinued, far from it. It's very much alive I'd say. Eau Sauvage is a solid pillar of Dior's male fragrance lines.
Or perhaps something Charlie Mortdecai would wear... :grin:
On a side note, I have never been able to pick up pineapple from Aventus. Or any other fruit for that matter. But let's not make this...
Johnny Depp, not Sean Penn.
Welcome to the club!
Oh I hope not. The oud craze is way past its peak, or isn't it?
BTW doesn't Dior already have a great masculine called Jules?
Probably not. About two months ago I talked to a Dior representative, she hinted at something special coming at the end of this year when I asked about the new Eau Sauvage Cologne. Funnily she knew...
I have trouble to empty my 0.42oz bottle of Terre d`Hermes Parfum...
Jil Sander should reissue Feeling Man. Lovely stuff from what I remember. BTW, Feeling Man juice should be purple, not green(ish) as you so often see on eBay.
Wrong, Mugler doesn't do batch variations because Creed has a patent on that. :tongue:
Colonia Intensa is great stuff, has good longevity. When sprayed on clothes I can still smell it a day later. Colonia Oud is great too BTW.
I tried all of the Colonia's. Liked Intensa the most. I...
Don't forget the elusive one: Eau Sauvage 100% Glaçon. Rumour has it a new one will be released soon: Eau Sauvage Cologne...
Citrus and longevity don't go together very well. That said consider Monsieur Balmain & Dior Homme Sport (2008). Jo Malone Lime Basil & Mandarin is very nice too. Some say Jo Malone scents in general...
Dior's Homme and Eau Sauvage and Acqua di Parma Colonia are strong contenders for the title IMO.
I talked to two Dior SAs today. Asked them if they knew anything about it. They didn't. They did tell me that there's Dior stuff they would love to sell but that it is not made available in our...
May 1st in Norway too...
Well me too and then again I'm not... Curious to smell how it will differ from the excellent EDT. Will it really be cologne strength or just a name (as in Dior Homme Cologne)? I'd rather see Dior...
Katie is cute. Love her dimples. Reviews are great.
If you don't like current juice I really doubt you will like the vintage. Have both and like the'm both very much.
The internal pressure keeps oxygen out of the bottle I guess, and since it doesn't need to take in air from the outside to equalise pressure I think this keeps the contents "fresh". The propellant is...
Colonia Intensa and Colonia Oud are my favourites
+1 This stuff is nuclear strength. Raise your hand if you actually finished a 100ml/3.4oz bottle of ESP.
I really doubt if I'm ever gonna finish my bottle (2Q01) as I don't wear it that much and...
Have you read Floating Gold by Christopher Kemp?
The good man does have a day job... Writing about perfume is more like a hobby I guess.
Haven't smelled Colonia yet. Current favourites Colonia Intensa (bought a bottle) and Colonia Oud (have a sample, price for a 100ml bottle is pretty steep IMO, should be made in 50ml too considering...
Oh dear... When you press the head, does it spay out of the boobs or the eyes? :tongue:
I once made the mistake of applying 5 sprays of Eau Sauvage Parfum. Once. This stuff is industrial strength.
Three or four sprays of the 2008 for me.
+1 I love the 2008 version for its blast of ginger. The 2012 version leans much more in the direction of DH, less ginger more iris.
Have you considered the Cologne? On a side note, Eau Sauvage...
About 30% quite regularly I guess. The other 70% occasionally. They all get some use, some just more than others. My wardrobe is very small however.
Where I live Calgon is dishwasher detergent... :smiley:
Acqua di Parma Colonia Intensa. At first I found it a bit "meh". As I emptied my sample vial I began liking it more and more. A year goes by. Recently I ordered 5 Acqua di Parma samples (Assoluta,...
Eau Sauvage (the original one or the elusive 100% Glacon version)
Scent: Aventus, after reading countless comments full of praise
Reaction: much ado about nothing
I always say Yatagan puts hair on your chest... :lolk: But it's not my cup of tea. Glad you like it.
AdP Colonia Intensa
I was too. Smells like candified ginger, not like the spicy-fresh ginger in DHS 2008 that I like so much. Pass.
+1 Colonia Intensa. Has a nice ginger note. Also check out Varvatos Artisan.
Great stuff. A modern day powerhouse.
Regional marketing. Someone in management decided that DHP isn't meant for you. Same as Dior Homme Eau For Men isn't available over here. Go figure.
Vintage Eau Sauvage
Intensa Oud for winter. Colonia Intensa for summer.
M7 has been rereleased as M7 oud absolu, true. M7 Fresh however (with a ginger note, I'd like to smell it) has been discontinued.
I once made the mistake of applying 5 sprays. Once. :D
Dave is spot on. Both vintage and current are worth having IMO. If you can find it the 100% Glacon version smells like vintage with some added menthol. Great stuff too.
+1 Eau Sauvage Parfum
+1 ADP Colonia Intensa Oud
+1 If you wanna smell funky Eau Sauvage head on over to the womens aisle and take a whiff of Diorella. Now that's funky!
+1 The flankers can't hold a candle to the original perhaps with the exception of the 100% Glacon flanker (smells really close to vintage). Current juice is excellent stuff, don't dismiss it because...
vintage Eau Sauvage (brown boxed) and Eau Sauvage 100% Glacon (if you can find it)
Dunno about a cheap Santal alternative. You will not find it in Vétyver. I have both.
That's a bargain! While it's my least favourite Eau Sauvage flanker, and because of that I don't own a bottle, I would buy it at that price.
Dior's Eau Sauvage EDT, Jo Malone's Lime, Basil & Mandarin.
I never wear something to please other people. I only wear it to please myself. If someone else likes it too then that's great. If not, well... you get the picture.
I have two bottles of Eau Sauvage 100% Glacon, and a "brown boxed" Eau Sauvage, both of these still contain oakmoss. Longevity on me however isn't better than current Eau Sauvage which I also have....
That's because the Champs Elysees is a tourist trap: http://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-24491494 But I admit to having gone there myself last year...
It will disappear, celebrity scents are usually discontinued pretty fast (to make room for another scent) compared to the usual designer stuff.
Mugler Cologne. As an alternative: Jo Malone's Lime Basil & Mandarin.
Yes, and while you are at it, give my regards to Mrs. Robinson.
Eau Sauvage Parfum falls into this category too.
How 'bout Eau Sauvage?
In French film "Un éléphant ça trompe énormément" (1976) Jean Rochefort has a huge bottle of Monsieur de Givenchy.
None of my seven different Eau Sauvage bottles has a sticker on the bottom. There's the batch number and a number moulded in the glass.
It sure is very good stuff. I bought a 200ml bottle last year when I finished my 100ml bottle. The 2001 limited edition ES 100% Glacon (AKA 100% Cooling Effect) smells like the good old ES stuff with...
That's a fougère.
For a classic chypre look no further: Eau Sauvage. Especially the older oakmoss containing versions are great.
I'll go with one of my Eau Sauvages.
The fans of ESE say the current formulation is worse than the one preceding it. Yours could be the older, good stuff.
ESE experts, feel free to chime in.
Probably not the best idea to break the seal. I'd say it is worth more with seal intact.
Jil Sander's Feeling Man turns from purple too green.
Funny you should mention Mitsouko, Jack. I asked to smell Mitsouko two weeks ago at the Guerlain counter at a local chain store (after having smelled the The Les Parisiens collection). No problems...
A bar of Eau Sauvage soap.
The most popular because of the sheer number of bottles sold or because it accomplished this feat in only five years? On a side note, Eau Sauvage apparently sold over 80 million times.
Mugler Cologne. DHC feels flat and bare and quite boring after its sparkling opening notes.
That's the new version. Saw it in France last year, ~80 euros for a 100ml bottle @ Nocibe and Marionnaud. Indeed, from another era. This stuff puts hair on your chest. Not quite my cup of tea.
Pret-a-offrir in this case means ready to be given as a gift. In other words, fancy packaging. I wouldn't mind getting this as a gift.
+1 Of the 7 samples (No.89, Elite, Cefiro, Limes, JF, Santal, Mahon Leather) I received I think Mahon Leather is very nice, so does the missus. However the one that really floats my boat is Santal....
Current Eau Sauvage is indeed a perfectly unisex scent, older versions with the prominent oak moss note IMO less so.
And the 100% Glacon flanker too.
If it's a really old bottle the ingredients aren't even listed...
End of January 2014.
Talk about a bit of a faux-pas here... It should have been made available in december with the marketing starting in november.
Interesting. But I do wonder why. There's the normal Dior Homme, the heavy hitter Dior Homme Intense, the fresh Dior Homme Sport and the light weight Dior Homme Cologne. Flanker-wise Dior has all its...
Current Eau Sauvage is missing the wee bit stuffy note (but I like it) what I guess to be oakmoss that's somehow still in PM. Compare PM with older Eau Sauvage and the similarities are greater. If...
Christopher Kemp, http://www.amazon.com/Floating-Gold-Natural-Unnatural-Ambergris/dp/0226430367
I have all but ES Extreme, it just doesn't do it for me. Would love to take a whiff of the 1984 version just to know how it smells.
Nice opening notes with sweet drydown. Too sweet for me. Pass.
Lovely stuff but too expensive for me. I can buy 400 ml of Eau Sauvage for the price of one 100 ml bottle of this stuff...
If you like Yatagan you should give Dior's Jules a try. Jules however is very difficult to get outside of France though, hence eBay prices are astronomical.
Buy them now before they reformulate the lot and turn them into mere shadows of the originals... :cheesy:
It's a nice fragrance IMO, dark woody leathery. Discontinued but luckily the price for a bottle is very low atm so it offers good value for money. I bought mine cheap too, i wouldn't want to pay full...
Errm no, a dummy or as they're also known as a factice doesn't contain any fragrance, usually just colored liquid (water? alcohol perhaps? Dunno.). For display purposes a factice is almost always a...
