Your luck will turn to good luck shortly, just don't get stuff delivered by USPS!! Lucky it's not for more than just perfumes. Never give control of your assets to someone else, period.
With DEs my current rotation is the Pils, Feather AS-D2 and Tradere closed comb. I have a few others like the Joris and ATT, however they rarely get used as they need to be pulled part and dried...
Vintage Paco Rabanne pour Homme. The top notes have gone, it just smells more mossy.
I really liked Fate Women, however Fate Man is a little too spice market for me. Same as Journey Women, loved it however didn't feel any love for Journey Men. Would love to see Tribute in an EDP,...
Kilian travel atomisers in black and silver. Thinking of putting some Roja Diaghilev and NUWA into them.
This is a beautiful fresh fragrance, however truly has cologne longevity.
TF Grey Vetiver is very versatile.
Morning was Casamorati Fiero.
Evening was Amouage Badr al Badour.
My 2013 bottle is incredibly potent 1/2 to 1 spray lasts 4 hours.
The ASAQ musc gazelle in your second link is legitimate. After you've tried layering this with attars or perfumes your definition of musk will change. It's worth buying and incredibly potent.
Puredistance M or Black
Roja Parfums Engima
I've never really thought about layering an oil with a perfume. I will usually layer with a different oil on each...
New Balance 574, 576 or 996, Hogan or Tods.
I don't know why Creed is so expensive in the US, in Singapore it's USD $220-$230 for a 75ml / 2.5 oz bottle.
Just import from Germany, it's cheaper even factoring in the shipping. The falling...
Aventus is an excellent fragrance. Make sure you try Jardin d'Amalfi, it's another winner from Creed.
MFK Aqua Universalis Forte gets a huge smile and compliments every time I wear it. My girlfriend loves the stuff.
Puredistance M. Spice & Wood just didn't appeal to me at all.
Freddie and Rene.
There are 2 excellent forums I would recommend
I would suggest this course of action:
1. The first thing I would do is visit a barbershop and get...
Based on your user name, I'd go Creed Original Vetiver.
Youthful, masculine and fun.
I layer with complementary fragrances when I want to make a slight change to a particular fragrance, key word being complementary. I only apply fragrances on clothes and not the skin.
If I want...
If you liked Lyric Man or rose in general, Amouage has some beautiful attars including Badr al Badour, Ayoon al Maha, and have just released Bel al Dien for Ramadan which is a beautiful oud and rose.
Usually I scent the apartment with Shoyeido incense, however today I found D.R Harris Arlington cologne makes for a great room spray.
Speick - this can be used as a shampoo and body wash. The quality of this product is simply outstanding and the price is reasonable.
Aesop bar soaps smell great and are easily available.
Panpuri - Come Clean shampoo. This is the most beautiful smelling shampoo with Jasmine, Olive, Jojoba and Mint.
It's from Thailand and costs about USD $20. Shelf life is 6 months and if you don't...
Bond No.9 Scent of Peace for Him. I'm sure Ricky would have picked it up discarded in the trailer park.
Amouage Tribute and Al Shomoukh on each wrist.
Amouage Ruh al Ward
Penhaligon's Blenheim Bouquet
Malle Vetiver Extraordinaire
The weather is scorching in Tokyo.
Dia Man, Jub XXV and Tribute Attar.
A few suggestions, some come over the $200 mark however make up for it in quality.
Penhaligon's Blenheim Bouquet
MFK Aqua Universalis Forte
Amouage Taifi Rose
Roja Parfums Vetiver
Creed Jardin d'Amalfi
MFK Aqua Universalis Forte, Xerjoff Nio and Pure White Cologne are liked by my female friends. Amouage al Andalus is also quite liked.
Spring and autumn.
Creed Jardin d'Amalfi
Yes you're right that does sound nicer.
Cannot help but feel Roja Parfums Enigma is what TF Tobacco Vanille should have been ..... ok maybe I'm dreaming.
Xerjoff make beautiful, high quality fragrances.
The value of the discovery sets is compelling, I purchased the Casamorati discovery set and was highly impressed.
I know people like TV, however I have never understood why it's popular. They should re-name it Boozy Xmas Cake.
+1. This is the jewel in their line up.
A decant of Creed Pure White cologne. 25ml has been obliterated in about 1 month.
Casamorati Lira is one gourmand that is incredibly impressive, the blood orange and caramel is a near sinful combination.
Yesterday I received a new Amouage attar:
I have Creed Aventus which is nice but very expensive. I would highly recommend Speick body wash, inexpensive and excellent.
If you can handle soap either Martin de Candre or Aesop.
Today I tried my Bond No.9 Scent of Peace for Him, I felt sorry for my lungs. Cheap materials, thought I was smelling sweetened drain cleaner.
Claire, Amouage attars are available if you know where to look. Sample Sultan's amouage oils and we can point you in the right direction and let you know what is still available. You may just be...
Hi Claire, you really need to try Amouage Tribute if you haven't already. It's beautiful and good value compared to some Arabian Oud oils. I would also recommend Amouage Badr al Badour, which is...
Amouage Badr al Badour and Bal Aidien attars.
Good and cheap is the Singaporean national proverb, that said good and cheap or cost / performance is relative to each individual's situation. If I love a fragrance and get good mileage, then it...
Creed Silver Mountain Water
+1. That said 90% of the time I'm wearing Birkenstocks. I need to get out more.
- - - Updated - - -
Actually I like this better, it gives me an excuse for a pair of Edward Green monk straps.
I had the same issue with Dia Man, Jub XXV and Memoir Man. To counter it, sprays were just reduced from 2 to 1. I also diffuse the fragrance by spraying across my clothes and not on one point. I only...
ASAQ Crassna Aoud & ASAQ Al Taef Rose.
I wore Fiero today and received a nice complement, the colour of the Casamorati bottle reflects the fragrance.
Btw Lira is incredibly seductive and I would love to smell this on a girl. Blue Hope...
I feel a split is in the winds.
If you go Amouage, I'd also recommend Dia Man. It's just excellent and probably for me the best in their house.
Silver Man is a good Summer and Spring fragrance, and while it doesn't get much love...
Fiero is a knock-out. The whole Casamorati line is quite impressive, however if I had to only have one it would be Fiero.
I cannot understand why the luxury houses cannot put out a quality...
Sorry I didn't follow the thread posts, however remember it's a date scent. I would suggest lighter scents.
The splits board on basenotes is a great place to start.
I'd also look at Xerjoff Nio, MFK Aqua Universalis Forte or MDCI Invasion Barbare.
A .3ml sample of Ensar Oud's Oud Yaqoub.
Creed Aventus, MI or Pure White Cologne.
MFK Aqua Universalis Forte.
Amouage Tribute attar.
Xerjoff Casamorati Fiero
Roja Parfums Bergamot
Tribute is beautiful stuff and 5-6ml is still a lot of attar. I'd recommend decanting 1ml in a Wheaton vial and use the vial for application....
I was in Hong Kong last week. Amouage Dia Man 100ml was HKD 2,200 at Lane Crawford or around USD 280. Memoir Man would be the same price.
With GIT I get a seaweed note, maybe you're connecting that to MI's marine notes.
Amouage Dia Man is my signature, however my current go to fragrance is MFK Aqua Universalis.
Amouage Epic Man and Memoir Man, or Indian Oud.
I thought they were affordable compared to other vendors, especially as the sample sizes are 1ml. Tempted to purchase some samples, and the burner though out of stock does look exquisite.
Martin de Candre soaps are very nice, shipping though is a little expensive from France.
Pen's Blenheim Bouquet.
I spoke with Amouage yesterday about their attars, they mentioned IFRA was causing a real headache in the EU and hence the decision to stop the attars. I also received an email from Fitjar, a...
Duchaufour, Ropion and Roja Dove.
I would love to know who created Amouage Dia Man.
I would recommend trying Millesime Imperial and Royal Oud. Wanted to love BdP and loved the top notes, but the dry down was disappointing when it turned powdery.
Xerjoff Nio has a strong Japanese mandarin or mikan note.
Edit: ok I just read the budget, Nio is too expensive.
Look at Trumper's GFT, this is a wet shaving classic and affordable.
My GF likes the fresher citrus and floral fragrances, everything that's outside of this realm smells of wood.
They're both excellent. My girlfriend slightly prefers Millesime Imperial.
She also loves MFK Aqua Universalis Forte.
Puredistance Black is a smooth operator.
Highly recommend the following shaving soaps and creams:
* Castle Forbes - Lime or Lavender
* Martin de Candre - Scented or Fougere
* Antica Barbieria Colla - Bitter Almond
* Los Angeles Shaving...
Hi, I only have the weak version. I would recommend checking with the seller if they have the stronger or white box version, it's beautiful.
Creed Sublime Vanille.
Amouage Tribute layered with ASAQ black musk gazelle.
Dia Man. Buy from a retailer where you can easily return it, the new stuff seems to be reformulated.
I'd also recommend Tribute and white box Homage.
I went to purchase a back-up bottle of Dia Man last week. After sampling testers at two different stores, it seems Dia Man has been reformulated.The first bottle didn't bear much resemblance with Dia...
Interesting and insightful interview, much appreciated!!
Girlfriend's favourites are:
- MFK Acqua Universalis Forte
- Creed Pure White Cologne
- Creed Millesime Imperial
Apparently I have too many 'woody' fragrances.
Lucky Scent and Essenza Nobile, though the 2ml sprayers from Essenza Nobile are much preferred and are included at no charge when purchasing a fragrance.
With ASF Dubaishop, I purchased several attars online. I didn't hear from them for 2 weeks and called them to confirm the order, they cannot ship fragrances to Singapore. I had the order refunded via...
Agreed very nice and the girlfriend simply loves it.
Okay so I'm going to have to admit Creed MI, Pure White Cologne and Penhaligon's Blenheim Bouquet are loved by my girlfriend. Dia Man is also a favourite.
She generally screws wrinkles her nose...
Amouage Tribute and Homage attars.
Very bright spring summer fragrance, however not much vetiver.
Castle Forbes is excellent. Their Lavender and Lime shaving creams are worth every dollar.
I used to like fragrances back in the mid-80's then the interest faded. The interest was somehow ignited after Japanese kitchen knives led to shaving, which led to fragrances. Two years ago I tried...
The most amazing was going to Mazzolari in Milan and seeing the passion of the SAs and their love of fragrance. The most disappointing would be Hermes in Singapore where the SAs know nothing about...
The scent only stays while lathering and during the shave. It's the only shaving soap that I've been able to use from start to near finish, the Vanilla Eucalyptus Mint should be finished in the next...
Silver is probably the least appreciated, however it will grow on you over time. Perfect spring summer fragrance.
If you really want a fantastic shaving soft soap look at the Los Angeles Shaving Soap company. They use essential oils and their fragrances are superb, Topanga Fougere reminds me of Roja Parfums...
