So you've stumbled across basenotes, eh? Well then, you've taken your first step on a great adventure. Be warned, I cannot guarantee you'll make it back, and if you do, you will not be the same.
In the time between the first post and the post that necroed the thread there have been quite a few "vintage" fragrances created. Guerlain's Vetiver and Habit Rouge have had yet another "vintage"...
There is a theory that counterfeiters only make Green Irish Tweed, Silver Mountain Water, and Millesime Imperiale, and only in 4 oz bottles. The only evidence to support this theory is that fake 4...
And on the other other side of the coin, most people buying luxury for the sake of luxury may neither know nor care about small issues with their fragrance, so that leaves a large segment of their...
Yeah, I'm done with them. I got a fake GIT which was a gift, so no big deal and it still smells good. It's basically Cool Water. I have a real OV which evolved slightly over its first few weeks,...
Nah son, LIDGE is masculine, and it's "the bomb" if I might use a played out reference. I've had platonic girl friends snuggle up to me with that one on.
It's so good I have a backup bottle...
So is this going to be a fragrance for 13 year old girls, or a fragrance that attracts 13 year old girls?
Just stay the hell away from Creed. Their dogshit quality control will make you crazy as you try to find a "good" batch.
I'm going to have to come to terms with this answer because Royal Delight was discontinued. I didn't even know until today.
I'm also convinced that I initially tested vintage juice because it was...
I'm not your friend, guy!
Buy cheap, buy twice
Is it smells even slightly off you will assume it's a fake and feel like you got beat.
How about this?
Improvised funnels are great when the fluids are cheap, like engine oil.
Borneo 1834 kind of smells like Haagen Daas Chocolate Chocolate Chip Mint, I think. I haven't had ice cream since I was a tater tot, so I don't know if that brand even exists anymore, and if it...
You should only do it if it's one of those "first in the morning" pees. You know, that dark orange, been stewin' all night types.
Smell like fuckin' windex and popcorn.
The strange thing about this is the batch #s are etched in. You can't really file them off, which has led me to believe that the fakers are just poorly (intentionally poorly or otherwise) etching a...
It was purchased from Beautyencounter and it doesn't smell good, but I'll be damned if the facts aren't pointing to it being legit. There is nothing in...
That was a theme of Philip K. Dick's in The Man in the High Castle, and also Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep, though TMITHC was very deliberate in applying it to the collectors of fine things.
Crazy talk. Fragrance is the one subject where you would NOT want your favorite to be moving up in the ranks because that would increase the chances that other people would smell like you.
Nothing funnier than the googly eyed look followed by an, "excuse me miss, but I couldn't help notice..."
My only other detective reference would be McNulty, but nobody would know him because at...
Oh believe you me, I've gone back and forth over the logic of my argument, and I know damn well that it doesn't make much sense, but my nose is an uppity, confrontational asshole.
The way I see...
True enough, and I always thought people were crazy and/or paranoid, but then it happened to me.
So either there is a rampant proliferation of fake Creeds out there, or, option B, Creed has...
No thank you, good sir. It was just the top that I felt was absolutely identical to my box, down to the font used, and I suspected that there was a grammatical error. I'm still suspicious about it...
I was hoping it was fake because I was going to traipse on down the the Neiman Marcus in the ghetto (New York is stupid, don't ask) and grab me a real one. Buy now everyone has confirmed the horrid...
Critical thinking. I like it. Shit still don't smell right.
Ah ha, but there's the rub. It doesn't smell legit. The stock answer in these situations is usually, "batch variation, reformulation, or old stock." Although let's be honest, the "old stock"...
It basically says "Supplier of King A, of Queen B, of King C, and of Queen D, of King E.
You don't have to speak French to read the mess on the top of the box. Just know that "de" means "of" and...
Yes, and good job reading my post. Cellophane can be added later to give a more authentic look as Shiny Beast said. This is about the grammar of the French at the top of the box. I am an English...
Look at this image!
ESPECIALLY IF YOU SPEAK FRENCH OR OWN AN AUTHENTIC CREED
I stole this image from another thread here because...
I'm resurrecting this thread for a DAMN good reason
Everybody in here is claiming that the fragrance is real and that there's no need to worry, dudebro.
Well, I believe I have identified it as...
Abandon ship, run, never look back.
You're about to enter a dark place from which there is no escape.
Grey Vetiver and London are lovely, now take them and go.
That's how I see it.
Mmmmmmm, smells like bad dancing and good credit.
I have a doctor friend and she has NEVER mentioned that my fragrance issues could be bad for my health, and she can be VERY invasive with her "advice." Of course, I actually do believe that they're...
I haven't convinced myself that this isn't a sickness.
Blind bought this and wore it today. I'm still confused. I'll keep wearing it until I understand it.
It's easily the darkest and most brootal of the bunch, and that means that the TAR note is...
Hmmmm, sounds like I'll be buying it then. I actually also need to check out the original again. My bottle of A Men is vintage, and that has that broooTAL tar blast that renders my nose useless,...
Oh what the christ? I've been avoiding this board for months because it makes me part with my money, and now I just pop in for a second before paying some bills and I just lost 90 dollars...
This. I've tried EN twice and that was all I needed to know that it smelled like oniony balls, though I hadn't actually bought a bottle. Still though, I've had a few (blind) purchases that I could...
You WILL be happy. I hate powder and I love L'instant de Guerlain Extreme.
Only use two sprays on your first wear. Increase dosage as necessary on subsequent wearings.
This is the only...
La Nuit de L'homme obliterates my bronchial, so be careful with that one. Just because it may not bother you does not mean you aren't killing those around you.
Seriously. I tried it twice and...
Or reviews that are currently awaiting approval. I think it's a combination of the two, actually.
I swore I remembered these commercials as "Real American Hero" commercials.
I looked it up and sure enough they changed the name after 911 so as not to mock actual American heroes.
He's sleeping just fine.
This is a fair misconception. Fragrances don't "develop" on skin; skin absorbs anything put on it. Different molecules will be absorbed at different rates depending on their size and structure, and...
You don't put perfume on something that can't tell you that it doesn't like it. This applies to pets, the comatose, the handicapped, etc.
L'instant Extreme for sure. I'd need to put thought into the others and I ain't in a thinkin' mood.
This habit just got out of hand; I'm going back to meth!
This scent is THE coffee scent. It's a pretty rough on my trachea, and that's sort of disappointing, but no other "coffee" scent even comes close to this.
Don't get me wrong, I like most of the...
At least it wasn't meatspin
it's the answer to everything.
This is my one and only guess
See what I did there?
Black Vetyver Café is my final answer. In fact, in my review I called it post-modern, and said, "I can't shake the feeling that this...
Did you say Old Spice?
An N-word thread?
This is the latest piece of clothing I'm interested in.
I voted Polo Green, because you seem to have everything else.
But more importantly, you seem to have a GIANT collection, and I need to axe you somthin.
Do you store them in a refrigerator, or...
It's some sort of odd conformity to what's currently "cool." Everybody's wearing Ed Hardy, listening to pop radio, watching Two and a Half Men, and playing Modern Warfare 3 because that's what...
So you're in the city? Imma call homeland security and send them these pics :p
I'd give myself the haircut John F. Kennedy got at Dealey Plaza.
Happy for men, by Clinique
every time I wear it
For a moment there I thought this fragrance was going for an R. Budd Dwyer theme.
Tip your waitress folks, I'll be here all weekend.
I heard Kirk reprogrammed the simulator so that it was no longer a no-win situation.
And get their damn money back
wait wait wait
Here's a website, but there is only a picture.
Poor Kenny :(
I always thought that was Jeremy Piven
I didn't think that was considered a "white" musk.
It's more than that. I eat like a psychopath: No white flour, no sugar, very few animal fats, no trans fats, lots of omega-3s, lots of raw vegetables, lots of fruits, lots of raw nuts, and lots of...
Diet diet diet
If you want to go without deodorant then you need to be putting the proper foods into your body.
I use one of them Tom's of Maine natural deals, but if I happen to forget it...
This is the answer.
I love them both equally, but I love Coffee just a bit more.
I think the science behind the brain's interpretation of scent is way more complicated than light or sound.
In the internet age this type of crap is pointless. I gots me two bottles, one's almost done though.
MINE MINE MINE MINE MINE!
How's the tar note? I'm allergic to A*Men and Summer Sunessence but the Pures are great.
Actually, it looks like this is sold out so nevermind.
No, nothing like Chergui, and from what I understand, nothing like TV. However, you can't go wrong with it, and even if you don't like it, you'll be able to flip it here and make a clean 10-20%, no...
Billy Joe Armstrong is a perfectly good guitarist, and all this talk of Al Di Meola being better is just snobbery.
Forget you ever found this place! RUN!! Destroy your computer if you have to. Get rid of your smart devices and tablets. Take massive doses of acid to fry your memory. Your wallet and bank...
Well then. I am a coffee crackhead. I even tracked me down a bottle of Pure Coffee and now I'm afraid to spray it too often. I'm also a hot sauce aficionado, so it looks like this might be a blind...
Can anyone give me more confirmation of this. I like the "pure" flankers more than the original because they lack that tar note. I'm allergic and it swells up my sinuses, therefore negating any...
So is Pure Coffee being re-released or not? PM is okay, but I would buy me a backup of PC without hesitation or regard for price.
Ladies ladies ladies, ya'll need to learn to have a little fun with this. You know what "trolling" is? Let these guys think that a little bottle of smell will make them irresistible. At worst...
Coffee is best
As long as my body is right, clothes are worth fuck-all to me.
You should have said this...
