Just came in the mail today. Anyone sample or try this? Reminds me of erolfa a little bit but this is less aquatic.
I just ordered the one he did for project renegade. I'll post when I get it
Roja dove- orientals
Killian- sweet fragrances
Byredo- clean fragrances
Xerjoff 1861 renaissance
Back to black is great. Try Naxos by Xerjoff when you get a chance
It has a lot to do with the store. If you're in a department store, the sales associate helping you could possibly be a fill in from housewares or sporting goods. It's very common to know more than...
Bought this recently and I see why it's a popular scent. As far as fougeres go, I still prefer scandal ph but this is a top notch fragrance. Very masculine
Best sandalwood fragrance of all time is Santal imperial imo. When it comes to fragrance, a lot of times the rarer it is, the more hyped it is. Both great, but bois de Santal is femme. If you're...
This. Also try Ciel Man by amouage
A nervous smile and a sincere thank you
[QUOTE=Bruh_Man;3769698]From the fragrances you've smelled pick one for each note that you think is the best of the bunch, feel free to add your own. [\QUOTE]
Citrus - Millesime Imperial
Definitely option one. Costa Azzura is one of those hybrid aquatics that are also like a gourmand as well. MI is a modern classic. I just don't see the appeal to AV. It's a quality citrus, but that's...
Unfortunately Stephane Humbert Lucas doesn't really have an 'everyday' type of scent in the line. However, if you can get to a retailer that sells it, go and sniff away. They make some pretty unique...
Dior Homme Eau for me. It's severely underrated but it's my most complimented fragrance
Musc Ravageur kills for me
Hard Leather makes people turn up their noses
It can go either way but I will say this, a bar is the perfect place to try...
Vetiver was discontinued on his extrait series. It's back out on the pour Homme line. As for most versatile, I'd go with scandal. It can be worn all year round, day or night imo
I like xxv as far as scent goes but I'd rather wear Royal Oud because I prefer creed blending. I love how their scents last, but at the same time you can wash it off as well. If xxv came in a edt, my...
I wanted to choose three but I could only pick one. I went with creed but Xerjoff and amouage are right there
Naxos is gonna be a big hit once more people get their nose on it
I like santalum by Profumum Roma. Very warm, spicy sandalwood scent
I got on Uden very late but I'm glad to have it now, it's a gem
It's great but its a very mature fragrance
Let's keep this topic on the fragrances listed
In no order
Apple Brandy by Killian
Tuscan Leather by Tom ford
Scandal PH by Roja Dove
Ambre Topkapi by MDCI
1861- Naxos by Xerjoff
And if Tuscan Leather doesn't qualify, I'll substitute...
Xerjoff 1861- Naxos
Moresque Al Andalus
Amouage Opus V
Oriza L. Legrand Royal Vetiver Bourbon
Tom Ford velvet orchid (girlfriend)
Creed Royal Princess Oud (wife)
Vetiver Royal Bourbon by Oriza L. Legrand
Original Vetiver by Creed
Grey Vetiver by tom ford
Red Vetiver by Montale
One of my favorite fragrances ever. That orris/rum/oud combo is magnificent
Musk oud. All three are good but this one is the one I'd wear
The first version was better. This one is more chemical and the notes seem less sharp than the original. Had them both. Loved the original, this one is ok but not the same
I gave away my Green Irish Tweed and I have no idea why
I only use L'homme so I wouldn't really know. I guess Saint Laurent wasn't seeing profits from the cosmetics department. Too much product hitting the grey market maybe?
V is the best I've tried, it's also one of my favorite fragrances period. Haven't tried 8 or 9 yet though
Right now 120ml go for $370
Creed seems to do it more often than everyone else I think. Tom Ford has been relatively the same. I paid $295 for 100ml of champacca absolute for my wife three years ago. Today that same bottle went...
Tom Ford men circa '08
They're doing one a year now. Is there another house that does price hikes as frequently? What does everyone think about this?
As of right now, it's Dior Homme Eau
Almost bought this blind. Waiting for it to hit Osswalds so I can test it. I like the description
I voted no. I'd rather see members segregated before posts...
Aventus in all areas. DHI isn't even the best in the Homme series. Tried it on several occasions. Can't see why it's as popular as the original Dior Homme
By season. It saves me time. No sense in considering something that I'm not gonna wear. In season fragrances go on my dresser, everything else goes into storage
I like Dior Homme eau
I believe erfume was created for a woman to attract men. So the fragrance was potent and lasted longer. It sounds sexist today, but women were almost property in those days. That tradition, of making...
This lol. OS for me as well. One of my favorite fragrances
This lol. OS for me as well. One of my favorite fragrances
Right now, I'd say Ciel Man. All time, it's Tuscan Leather
I've never smelled an Hermes fragrance that I'd spend over $50 on. I'm open to change my mind though if one comes along that I like
I think it's safe to say its unusually cool for the past couple days and besides I never left the house. Italian Cypress is an all year round fragrance in my opinion anyway but if I were going...
Well they won't pinpoint it as a leather based fragrance. However, wearing the appropriate fragrance for the season/occasion will have people refer to you as the guy that smells good, as opposed to...
Bois de cedrat by Creed. Smells great but it has zero longevity
I can guarantee you that if you are in fact doing that, people laugh at you behind your back. I agree with sophisticatedscent fragrance like clothes, have seasons
Try to wear heavy leather/amber scents in cooler weather. That is, if you're trying to be considerate to those around you. In the hot and humid summer temperatures, those kind of fragrances can...
Nothing is ever limited or vaulted if money can still be made.
Nope. There are better gourmands out there. It kinda played itself out
Glad I'm not the only one
My opinion is this:
1. It smells great but it's not perfect. People are allowed not to like it
2. Some people, once they own a few bottles, think they're the next luca Turin and they critique...
Love it but gave it away. I don't wear it enough to justify me keeping it. Great for summer heat
Scandal pour Homme
The one that came to mind was Santalum by Profumum Roma. I came in to test something else, smelled that and it was over. I didn't even wanna test anything else. I went home took a shower n sprayed it...
I like this one in cold weather. In warm weather it can seem a little feminine. Still a very good citrus
The hostility comes from the fact that some people think that when you make statements about quality in perfume between more expensive brands and less expensive brands, you're insulting them. I agree...
Royal vintage by M. Michallef is the best Aventus clone. Anything else is gonna be a waste of money. Even if you try three of these other lame attempts at it for $15-$20 each, it's still a waste of...
Best aquatic I've ever smelled. Too bad I hate aquatics or I would've gone through a couple bottles of this
If pure malt is better than this, that house should close up shop
Neroli portofino. I like platinum Egoiste a lot, but NP is a much better fragrance
Never. Don't like what she stands for.
It's not that polarizing. What you're witnessing is people not knowing how to compartmentalize two very different scents that share the same name. It's always funny to see how people react to certain...
Almost all are. The only ones that aren't are the ones I purchase for nostalgic/collector reasons
Santal imperial by creed. Masterfully blended
All designer aquatics. Not that they're that bad, it's just that they all smell the same to me
These are pretty old fashioned fragrances before aquatics came into the pic. I own them all and enjoy them but I wouldn't recommend a blind buy
Summer fragrance and aquatic are not mutually exclusive. Unfortunately most summer designer fragrances are aquatics. If you're gonna stick to designer, I'd recommend Dior Homme cologne. Other members...
It's not an exact science. I think that's what people fail to realize. Even if you bought a cooler, it's not gonna guarantee fragrances won't turn after a while. Fragrance houses understand this too....
Stuff like this happens. It's generally a good idea to use a fragrance within 5 years of when you purchased it, otherwise it can go bad on you. It's not just edt either. It's happened to me with...
That depends on whether you're just trying something out or if you're putting up a false pretense. Basically what I'm saying is, some people sample/split to get a general idea on what a fragrance is...
I like them both but chypre palatin has a sweet, dry almost raisin-like accord that I love plus I'm a big fan of Bertrand Duchaufour
Italian Cypress (Tom Ford)
Ambre Topkapi (MDCI)
Scandal PH (Roja Dove)
Original Santal (Creed)
Ciel Man (Amouage)
How about different ingredients creating a certain accord? They keep saying it's not watermelon, I'm not gonna gonna go ahead and say it is
Comments like this usually come from an inexperienced nose. They have no idea what they're smelling so they usually say things like that, no biggie. I used to get miffed when I heard comments like...
Beautiful scent. Arguably the best smelling creed, but as others have mentioned, extremely weak performance
Some people are mindless sheep and will jump whichever way they see a few others jump. Nothing wrong with polo fragrances
Live jazz could work for you if you can find it. My wife got it at JFK International Airport for like $35. I'm pretty sure you can find it at that price or cheaper elsewhere
Good read. I personally don't care if he were a gerbil, I love red vetyver and will continue to buy it. People make too much of that stuff. Don't get me wrong, it's interesting to know but it should...
Maybe you prefer woman's fragrances. Some men just don't vibe with masculines it's just a preference. Also, while I agree that Dior leather oud is pretty gross, I think that's supposed to be a unisex...
Both are pretty good but I like Invictus better
A couple that come to mind are Live Jazz and Millesime Imperial. I love them but for some strange reason, don't wear them often
There's oud there. It's just these guys at creed have this ridiculous idea of making scents that smell good. Oud stinks so however they dressed it up, I'm not complaining. Smelling like a barn isn't...
From your list, white oud by agonist hands down but black musk by Montale kills them all slowly
Every time I see someone showing their fragrance collection, no matter how modest the collection is, I always see a bottle of Aventus. I'm gonna retire it in my collection. Doesn't feel niche anymore
Roja bergamot extrait
TDH smells like a hamster wearing cologne. Would never wear it. Unless I were a hamster...
A*men pure shot (tie)
I own a few Montales. I wonder why they release so many fragrances
Only official retailers for me. I don't care whether the online retailers have fake or real merchandise but I find piece of mind knowing I never have to question any purchase
