    Re: Dolce & Gabbana K. The new masculine pillar

    I really like doing that, that's why I store all my decants at least 2 years.
    And revisit them from time to time, even if I just put two sprays on the back of my hand instead of giving them a full...

    Re: Latest Armani Acqua Di Gio Flanker!

    Oh I like incense, I have put on Zadig et Voltaire This is Him today after having a bath - and wore AdG Absolu Instinct before.
    Maybe that's why it appeals to my taste.

    Re: Question for Dior Homme Intense owners

    Thank you very much!
    I never have expected that.
    Nearly every fragrance Youtuber has also released his "how to apply fragrances" video and not a single one has even just suggested to try an...

    Re: Dolce & Gabbana K. The new masculine pillar

    I need to try it again, I've got two original samples of it.
    At the first sniff I didn't liked it that much.
    But it's good, that it isn't the typical "blue" scent in the ballpark of BdC, Sauvage,...

    Re: Question for Dior Homme Intense owners

    That's really interesting, would you please explain why?
    I'm really curious as I'm one of those guys who even reapply half a spray on one arm if I think there was less juice sprayed on as on the...

    Re: Tell me which P. de Marly I should buy

    Ok, thank you very much.
    My 2017 Oajan is incredibly strong, lasts way over 12 hours on my skin. If I don't wash it off before going to sleep I can clearly smell it the next day.
    For me it's the...

    Longevity issues with Oajan?

    Re: Latest Armani Acqua Di Gio Flanker!

    AdG Absolu Instinct grows on me more and more.
    Wore it the last 2 days and I enjoy it very much.

    First time, when I sprayed it a few weeks ago, it was more like "it's nice but nothing special"...

    Re: Question for Dior Homme Intense owners

    Ha, there you have it! :laugh:

    Dior Homme Cologne would have been a better choice then - but that one smells completely different, it's a citrussy "fresh linen clothes" smell.
    The original Dior...

    Re: Question for Dior Homme Intense owners

    3 sprays of DHI are not too much imho - unless you did that during the high summer heat. :laugh:

    Maybe she just dislikes the iris which can have a slightly piercing quality.

    Re: Tell me which P. de Marly I should buy

    I really like and enjoy my several Parfums de Marly fragrances.
    But what really drives me crazy is that inconsistant production quality.
