D'oh!! double post
(echoing Mistertaz) Of the many outstanding reviews and reviewers here, it was yours in particular that really 'grabbed me by the short hairs' when this out of left field obsession struck a few years...
Hermes Un Jardin En Mediterranee
I had a somewhat similar idea to PWJ:
Top: Ivy, Bergamot, Verbena, Pepper, Mint
Mid: Rosemary, Camphor, Vetiver, Nutmeg, Ginger
Base: Sandalwood, Incense, Cedar, Musk
I imagine it opens quite...
I'd bet more than three Basenoters have such setups.
So why am I getting the feeling that the veracity of hednic's fragrance storage method is in doubt?
I'm relieved to see I'm not the only one that has a bit of dyslexia with this one. :tongue:
Lots of accumulated knowledge and wisdom in the archives:
Hey MonkeyBars, I'm begining to get the feeling we've got similar taste... well... smell :thumbsup:
Two fantastic takes on the cedar theme are Azzaro's Visit and Lalique's Pour Homme Equus.
+ 1 on Tam Dao as well!!
The thing with Sycomore is that it has that beautiful creamy sandalwoody Chanel base. It ends up being a fair amount sweater as a result. I got Encre Noire first (loved it and still do), but after a...
Love it, and don't consider it nearly as dark and smoldering as many seem to. Given your top ten, I'd think you'd really like it.
Yep, accessoriesforfragrances.com is a good recommendation too but with one caveat; shipping charges seem to pile up very fast as you add items to your cart.
The other e-tailer I'm familiar with...
I've purchased atomizers off e-bay at least three separate times without any problem. I think at least a couple times they were shipped from China. If the seller has a high positive feedback...
Thanks for putting this on my radar Rodolfo! I'm a big sandalwood fan as well. A quick search of the archive revealed:
Various sandalwood oils got me investigating wearable fragrances. Villoresi's Sandalo made me realize it could be a religion.
Almost there... 'course I've said that before :tongue:
L'Humaniste by Frapin is in my crosshairs at the moment. A fantastic citrusy gin fizz kind of vibe that's deceptively unique and deep.
Well... it's a big ol' serving of humble pie for me today as it wasn't long ago, on this very thread, I proclaimed a decidedly blase appreciation for his Irish Green Tweedness. So what did I do last...
Apologies for being a stick in the mud here, but I just received my second decant (after waiting a number of months) and just don't get all the fuss. It's obviously a very nice fragrance.... among an...
I'm tappin' the mat right around this price point too.
I suspect what you might be referring to wmim with "volume" and "muted" is the general easygoing vibe they both present. Certainly neither one is aggressive or takes itself too seriously.
Although the few reviews here are very mixed, Azzaro Now for Men might well fit the bill. To my nose it's definitely a soapy/clean (green) modern scent with a somewhat unique vibe that's easy on the...
Sonoma Scent Studio
One of the engines behind this fragrant quest seems to be a sort of wanderlust for the novel. Even if you're ultimately let down by the new sample or blind buy there's always at least the solid...
Thanks much for the welcome!!
I was recently looking around to get some takes on this whole fragrance obsession and ran across this great post of Jardanel from the "Does the Quest Ever Stop?"...
So there I was minding my own business, casually investigating essential oils as a new way of bringing some pleasantness into my house, where upon I was apparently slipped "the red pill" and...
Howdy all, first basenotes post for me:
