Congratulations! It's wonderful!
My avatar is a painting by Mark Ryden as I adore his work.
Hi and welcome!
Great choice it will last you a lifetime.
I find the opinion of giving a (supposed) alcohol/drug addict no money just because of that reason rather... strange. The perception is very much alive that poor, homeless people are in that case...
Xerjoff Oud Stars Mamluk.
I see absolutely no harm in giving him some money as you didn't ask him to follow you to the nearest sports shop... There is absolutely no need for the advice of not giving money to people begging.
And your point is?
Agree with this.
If you sell them you infect another one with the same addiction. Nobody needs the damn things! I wonder how many times some bottles are sold.
L'Occitane Eau Des Baux is a more woody option in the genre and very affordable.
It can be too much even with less application. It's the style of the fragrance. Still I love it but have to be "in the mood" for it.
Clouded your future is.
I like Pulp and Bal d'Afrique also but I find the house to be overall rather mediocre.
I sampled almost the whole Byredo range and have only Black Saffron in my collection so I follow you on this one.
People are to easily offended so even if you don't use any cologne it's possibly going to happen at some point.
It's a great scent indeed. I have a "vintage" 100 ml and when I wear it, one spray is enough... I have a rotation of about 100 bottles... so...:rolleyesold:
Glad you agree! :thumbsup:
Let's face it, the woman was just plain rude.
Bond No. 9 I Love New York For All.
Such a beautiful world where everything is discussed on the web.
"Interesting" thread to read through.
The damage is done.......... no seriously. I agree with you that it's a fragrance with a "classic" feel to it. Still I think it smells very good and an easy to wear fragrance for, in my case, work.
Aoud Shiny perhaps though it has less to do with Rose d'Arabie, it's a very uplifting fragrance in the crowded genre.
Montale Black Aoud.
This doesn't surprise me.
Thank's for sharing. The bottles are hideous. Hope the smell is better...
It is interesting for sure and that's something after sampling thousands. At this point don't know what to make of it yet.
Now we just need Pelé to post.
Nooooooooooooooooooooooooo !!! Don't blind buy. And especially not a RD... you've noticed the price tag, didn't you?
OVERRATED: Amouage Jubilation
UNDERRATED: Many Montales, Aoud Shiny and Aoud Ever to name just two.
I never say this one as a vanilla.
For me Un Bois de Vanille by Serge Lutens.
If you scroll down you'll notice a nice burger comparison.
Perhaps you could spray on your clothes?
Maybe a vetiver?
Tom Ford Grey Vetiver as already mentioned is a great suggestion.
Also Guerlain Vetiver.
The first one is a little bit more smokey, a darker take on vetiver.
It looks like you know what you want. Great collection. Enjoy it!
Maybe you could try ELDO Rien Intense Incense also?
Yes the MFK Oud suggestion is a very good one.
He didn't store it dark and cool, poor guy.
I am! :grin:
You'll better spray the scents on your clothes or on paper strips and put them in your pockets instead of spraying on your skin.
I have never bought a bottle just because it looks good. On the other hand if a bottle is really hideous I won't try it unless it's a winner on BN of course.
Not doubting your taste and opinion but to me -though I see a resemblance- Reflection is so much more then a Le Male.
If you want to give the money they nowadays ask for niche is totally up to...
Who is Mike Perez and who is Pelé?
Malle Vetiver Extraordinaire.
Jul & Mad
MIP is so 2014-hype.
It's a moronic/idiotic idea :wink:
These are the webshops where I often shop... Gave them a little evaluation too.
Parfuma (Belgium) 10/10
Parfumaria (Netherlands) 9/10
Celeste Parfums (Netherlands) 9/10
Essenza Nobile (Germany)...
Thank's for sharing. Though I like the style of this house I haven't got high hopes for this one.
FWIW glad to have an old style bottle in my collection.
Great, thank's for sharing!
Well I learn to read/write English :happy:
How people can enjoy/use something they have stolen is beyond me.
Bond No 9 Coney Island.
Pride comes before the fall. That's absolutely the worst customer service ever!
Bond No 9 I Love NY For All.
I bought this one about 2 years ago and have never blind bought anything since then.
So it still was a good purchase, in a way.
Herod is in the likes of Chergui but Chergui is better.
Both very different. HR is very powdery, warm spicy and the Vetiver is very grassy, fresh. I like both but HR is not that versatile IMO.
I think Tom Ford Grey Vetiver is a really good suggestion.
Another one is Prada Amber PH: a clean, soapy take on amber.
SL is one of my favorite houses. I sampled about 30 of his offerings. I own about 10 FB and Arabie and Chergui are my favorites. If you like amber to be spicy instead of sweet then Ambre Sultan will...
Aventus sure has a strange affect on people :rolleyesold:
I follow you on the part that the Tom Fords aren't that complex as for example an Amouage or MDCI Parfums. But still I think that Tobacco Vanille is quite an experience when you try this along a...
They are expensive but whether they are too expensive is up to you.
Personally, I think Tobacco Vanille is one of the best fragrances (from the line) closely followed by Noir de Noir and Tuscan...
Return the car and get both.
It's a great scent. Congratulations!
The new Kilians.
The new Serge Lutens.
Montale Rose Night.
Why don't we all e-mail them with the same question :smiley: !
I would have already asked for a refund and ordered my bottles elsewhere. Bad bad bad customer service.
I've had this problem with...
Thank's for sharing.
Too much information.
And the answer is?
I tested almost the whole range and find them all to be (very) nice. Only the Dries Van Noten wasn't my liking. I like the quality of the fragrances, I like the bottles, they are expensive but not...
BTW welcome to you, Hix!
Macho talk to level up with the mates, that's all. That's their kind of entertainment I guess.
I like Rose 31 from the ones I sampled. Not FBW though.
The bottle looks OK I guess. The thing with the expiration date is stupid though.
I hope this isn't where 2015 is leading us. Thank's for sharing though.
I love this.
A few months ago I tested a bunch of vetivers. Along Vetiver Extraordinaire this one was one of the best I smelled.
I'll stick with the Acqua di Gio.
^^^ thank's for sharing!
Nice! Please come back with your impressions after sampling.
Where is the like-button when you need it.
This should be a sticky thread.
On those who find themselves superior than others for whatever reason: shame on you!
I guess 30 sprays of whatever because of reformulations, olfactory fatigue and IFRA restrictions.
