If It's just a subtle difference, I won't bother getting an older bottle! Thanks Scott!
Well, It's nice to hear this. Maybe I should buy an even cheaper big bottle of z14's new formulation.
Are there preview cases of fake limited edition fragrances? On ebay, there are some testers being sold. I think those ones deserve more warning. Yours seems good.
Thanks for replying, Oviatt! I own a big bottle of 1-12 (latest version) and It's a great scent. Its top notes are amazing. Vintage must be even better, but I'm not in the mood for searching for a...
I recently blind bought an inexpensive small bottle of new reformulated Halston z-14 and was surprised about its smell: nothing like the designer new realeases. Of course, I read a lot...
Name: Aramis life 50 ml
Finished: December 2014 (after wearing it a lot that month)
Mr. Montana, how many formulations were there until its descontinuation? This 3rd formulation dates from late 80s or early 90s?
You canadians complain too much! LOL! The same US$150 = 450 Brazilian Real
I bought a Nobile Royalty bottle after my Gucci had run out and It's so far the closest one I've found until now (although It's not that close). It shares Gucci's green side in a less rich way, It's...
Hi folks, I've just blind bought a vintage bottle of Ho hang and although It was the let down of the year for me, could you help me with its date of production? Thanks in advance!
A*Men Pure Malt
I always blind buy, but not because of the thrill. It's just that I can't find what I'm curious about where I live. Half of my fragrances are product of blind buying. Some were amazing acquisitions,...
I got a 100ml bottle of Balenciaga Ho hang, It's vintage, pre barcode version, unboxed, for sale or swap. Atomiseur bottles don't come completely full, some I think It's 85-80% full....
Aramis Tuscany still smells nice, although less spicy and dense.
Although people have complained about it, Antaeus seems fine to me.
Cacharel pour l'homme
Ho hang club
Boucheron pour homme
Chanel pour monsieur
Lacoste Original (1984), although watered down, It's still pretty good imho.
A*Men Pure Havane
I've never smelt Salvatore Ferragamo but I'm really curious about it, specially because I like fig. Good Life and Dune are two appreciated fragrances of mine.
How would you describe it? Sweet Figs?...
Armani eau pour homme
Ungaro L'homme I
Followed by Boucheron pour homme, Ungaro L'homme II, Kouros Fraicheur
Lacoste (original) - 1984
At least, you bought a vintage bottle. My bottle seems to be the last version before descontinuation as its cap doesn't have the brand name engraved. Fortunately, I didn't notice any significant...
Giving myself a break:
Kenneth Cole Reaction
I have a small vintage bottle and bought recently a backup of the new stuff. They're close, I don't think they're so different as people stated. The vintage is nuclear, I understand when some...
Being a brazilian I can feel your pain... I normally keep far from these ebay prices. They're nonsense... Specially for us, where 1 dolar corresponds to 3.2 and 1 euro = 3.4...
Arrogance pour homme
Where I am, It's hot and humid, but not so humid as in a tropical forest, humidity comes from the sea. And It's boiling hot in summer and hot in the winter (in a greenhouse way).
Thanks drseid! I'm going to track it down. Your last recommendation (based on a review I read in the directory about Revillon pour homme) was really helpful for me to buying it blind. I'm still...
Do you remember if any of them were similar to the one below?
I paid at the time the equivalent of 20 - 21 euros... It was a good deal as I don't know the vintage and the newer one is nice for the price. Pino was even cheaper, something as 13-14 euros. Another...
Ouch! Around $100 is almost niche price... Sometimes I think I've already entered the niche world (Although I try to keep far from it) when I realize I paid 80 euros for a Ungaro I 30ml spray bottle....
The story of my life... :(
What a pitty... But if they kept on producing stuff like Lancetti Uomo I wouldn't mind buying their drugstore fragrances. Don't know if Capucci is still in production but the one I bought (probably...
Thanks, hednic! It seems there are/were 2 different fragrances: balestra pour homme and Renato Balestra pour homme. The former seems to be a leather chypre while the later, an aromatic fougere....
I wish to buy this fragrance blind, but I'm in doubt if the ones in the pictures below are the same or reformulated versions of the one listed in the directory.
In spite of searching for some vintages on ebay, I have never bought anything higher than $85. And trust me, unless you have a lot of money to spend (which is not my case) or love the fragrance...
Kouros Eau de Sport
That's for sharing, jason!
I was worried about the authenticity of my bottle (especially because of the plastic blue base). You clarified It. And I agree 100% that It's too high nowadays for a...
Does people actually hug in North America?! I'm surprised! :)
A*men Pure havane
Thanks Slayerized, I bought it for a bargain (if compared to the prices listed on ebay) and even though I had read Andre's great articles about Kouros, if I'm not mistaken, there were only pictures...
Looking at the pictures below, can you tell me the year of production of this bottle?
Great fragrance! I think It's like a light/watered down version of L'Artisan tea for two.
5 maybe could be too much in certain areas, but someone else must have a hound nose to detect 1/2 spray under a bunch of shirts, imho. Although the cologne guy issue can lead to the smoke free stuff...
It looks like you're hypersensitive, pal. Or maybe I wear "that cologne guy" amounts...
Anyway, I live in hot and humid weather, so half-spray would vanish in no more than 1 hour.
For me It's often...
So do I!
I think the same way! Or maybe an injured wolf?
Agar seems a better name in my humble opinion. Seems more exotic to me. And also more oriental. But Isn't it difficult for english...
Is SDV similar to any designer fragrance you know?
Acqua di Selva
Yeah, go for the classics: Gianfranco Ferre for Man, Versace L'homme, Bogart (signature) and One Man Show, Arrogance pour homme, Krizia uomo,Caesars man, Lomani pour homme...
Thanks, Dimitrios! When I was doing my "homework", I also read your threads about it and It was extremely important for me to take the decision of buying it blind. As I consider you one of my vintage...
Hey fragrancenewguy, tell us your thoughts about it!
Sometime ago, in my search for classic scents, I heard about this fragrance and read the beautiful reviews of ericrico and drseid about it, I was pretty excited to buy it blind but couldn't find a...
Another suggestions: Correct the pictures of Ungaro I and Ungaro II.
Add Very Irresistible Summer edition (the best flanker imho)
what's wrong with the opening, for you?
By the way, I love it!
Hugo Boss orange
Take some laundry detergent (it must be mega clean), label it as fragrance or cologne (as some prefer), advertise it with some young handsome model, emphasizing that It's a chick magnet and voilá!...
That's it! My wife made me get rid of my Guerlain Vetiver bottle... According to her, "It's so sweaty and smoky"...
She always reminds me that I'm smelling like my father, when I'm wearing Lapidus...
I'm wearing 1-12 today and It's a great fragrance indeed. Really hard to say if It's better than Z-14, but after all, It has a heavenly top while z-14's drydown is better.
Anyway, these 2 great and...
First full wearing of Z-14 today! Nice smell indeed!
I'm surprised that It isn't the atomic bomb some people were claiming. It's much more simple than I thought (especially after looking at its...
My wife top 3:
1. Gucci Envy
2. S.T. Dupont Signature
3. Lacoste pour homme (gray box)
I like a lot of RL fragrances, especially vintage Polo (the new release is another fragrance), Safari and Polo Blue. My only complaint is that I can't find huge discounts on them as I do with other...
Tried z-14 quickly yesterday night and also liked it! I was particularly affraid of it, but someone acostummed to old school fragrances has nothing to fear. Had no problem at all,...
Tried a sample and didn't like it. Too aquatic for me... (and I like a lot of aquatics as AdG, Davidoff Echo etc.)
Got a package with 4 old school fragrances today: versace L' homme, Halston z-14 and 1-12 and a backup bottle of Lacoste original.
Bought them blind after reading a bunch of reviews and...
Agree entirely! And I didn't join basenotes in 2010.
Nino cerruti Fair Play
Agree with every word.
I need help from my basenotes fellas, especially the italians ones!
Someone offered this fragrance in a swap...Is it worth? wasn't able to find anything in the directory about it. There's info only...
Hi AlanG, welcome!
I recently bought the new version and It's amazing... I'm trying to figure out how better is the vintage!!
As for the new one, It starts with a great spicy accord and 2-3...
Definitely a bad thing, considering that Polo Modern Reserve is already a light version of the once mighty original...
Tried the new Polo formulation recently and It's outrageous! it's like wearing "Polo Modern Reserve Light".
Boucheron pour homme
Balenciaga pour homme
Great purchases! Does lagerfeld still exhales that powdery sweet accord? With a discordant sour note?
Enrico Coveri pour homme
When precisely was It reformulated? I have a bottle I bought in 2004, probably made 1-2 years before... It's a great spicy, OAKMOSSY fragrance.
YSL pour homme
Definitely I can't understand all this urinal cake/cat piss talk. Really. Worn It for a long time, It's strong and bold and was truly appreciated in the nineties around here. But no one has ever said...
