i rolled the dice
No hassle return policies are great, but this kind of thing will keep happening. The bottle is either back in circulation or the vendor cut its losses and told the retailer to destroy it. I think...
Awesome. I haven't tried PA yet, but it's on my list. Amber Absolute, Noir d Noir, and Tobacco Oud or my favorites
This marketing strategy is so dumb. Just send some bottles to the us boutiques and gauge the demand. We have a post every day about dhi and you can't even buy it at sephora. These designers are...
I love Mona's oud, but only have 10 mls of it....thats the only reason I don't wear it alot. I always open the cap a smell it.
yep. just one spray though.
It has to say it somewhere on the box. I'll go with what luckyscent says
This is still my favorite.
LOL. That could last a long time. It's longevity is amazing!
So....even though he didn't like it at first, reviews of it being amazing made him change his mind? The first time I drank red wine I thought it was horrible, but I love it now.
riverside sounds good for a date
Dior homme is the only one I wear, but these are solid if your starting out.
I think guerlain really stepped it up with the art and material collection, especially the desert series. I understand why people don't like the previously mentioned scents (habit rouge, vetiver,...
I would like to try this. If its a toned down version, that would be nice, but I like the original also.
Cuir de russie is a very interesting frag. I haven't really smelled anything else like it. The leather really smells authentic. It not something you need to close your eyes and imagine.
Mugler pure havanne
Let's say after 15 minutes you want to put on something else because you can't smell it anymore. How does it react if you spray a different scent over it?
I haven't bought retail in a long time, but I could do some serious damage in the sales forum with $600.
I checked fragrantica and the perfumer wasn't listed. I guess it wasn't sheldrake who made it. Anyone know who the perfumer is?
What's that woody note in amouage fate and journey. I think I may have smelled it in LM Black Oud also. I've never smelled it in anything else. I love black oud, but fate and journey...... not so...
Try to request it in the split thread. That will be the most cost effective way for you to get it.
Nice haul. I've been wanting to try that 1849. I love interlude and really want to try the femm version.
It's been a while since I've seen a brown box at my doorstep. There's nothing like having...
I don't have a prob with the price tag, but if your going to put a $600 frag on the market, after you have been selling amazing perfumes at very affordable prices, you better make sure it can live up...
Lol.....pure marketing genius. It's just one simple molecule. Being that it's not complex, after you smell it your nose recognizes it immediately and it stops processing it. I guess it makes the...
Items removed. New items added.
I agree with you. This scent def goes both ways, but a little more on the femm side. Unlike sdv or other thick vanillas. It's a very sugary vanilla. That's what makes it stand out for me. Check out...
I really like this one. It's a great lavender and doesn't go down that sweet gourmand path. It stays balanced and has a smooth woody base.The grey juice looks awesome. The full bottle must look...
I'm def interested in trying interlude woman. Is it as strong as man? Interlude man doesn't project.....it attacks!! I love it.....one a small spray though:)
I tried pure wood today and thought it was just another mugler gourmand. Sweet and nothing special. I won't waste my money on pure coffee.....have a feeling it will be the same.
As for presentation, I think the bulb looks cool on the bottle, but there will be some wasted juice.
I feel the same way. You would probably have to try some vintage frags and I don't know much about those. Re loaded was made with vintage materials. I wonder if it met IFRA regulations? I like all of...
Gio, M7, Pi, ck one, Opus VII, colonia intensa, his lab on fire and I haven't even tried his kilian"s. These are a fraction of what he's created. I like Creed also, but much more of...
Remik had it up for a minute.....no takers. Amazing scent, but I struggle to find situations to wear it. My decant will last forever:)
MFK Ouds......velvet, cashmere, and silk.
lol....I guess after 500 releases you start to get desperate. That name is too much....haha
After trying fate woman. I want to try amouges fem scent also. I have both fates and they don't even smell the same. Woman is just a well done scent.....a bit on the fem side? Maybe, but it smells...
is it only available online or is it going to roll out to the retailers also?
It smelled a little old school the first time I tried it, but I bought it anyway. It's now one of the few FB purchases that I have made that's half empty. I like wearing niche stuff like cologne re...
It's funny how fast you can go from 1 bottle on the dresser to finding a new place to store them because the bottles are about to fall off.
Man.....I love mona d orio. Sad to hear its not really oudy.
Thanks for the right up man. I def want to try some oud oil.
Apparently, my Tauer LADM will smell better after 3 years.
After a long day of work, I like to take a hot shower, douse my self in this, and the relax on the couch. Its such a relaxing scent. I don't wear it out much, but that just because I have too many...
Good list. I live in south louisiana, but my wardrobe still leans on the cold weather side. For the heat check out heeley sel marin or masque milano terrabla. MFK is my favorite house at the moment....
If it cost $165, we could run a split. I'm sure the mods would let us slide on 5 bucks;)
The problem for me is that serge lutens has always been very easy to access. Good deals are always available on the sales forum and his retail is fair in my opinion. The second niche bottle i...
it reminds me of fate man. the last few amouges have been disappointing. maybe i need to start trying the female versions. I really like fate for women. they need to get back to the middle eastern...
i haven't been excited about a designer in a while. i hope this hits the us store or boutiques soon!!
Yep. Mfk is def the most wearable. Someone above mentioned songe, which is a great scent.
I'll take some old crystal method over the chemical brothers any day. Ex raver on deck;) seems like edm is making a come back especially with the dubstep movement....which I loath. Edm Culture is...
Jardin d Amalfi 24mls
Cuir beluga 15mls
Kohl d Bahrain 10mls
Soleil de Jeddah 10mls
O Hira 9mls
Keep your eye on the sales forum. I picked up all my bottles there at good prices. I wore 114 today......great stuff. I think de Sade is my fav though.
Lol.....I always break out some bottles after some wine. Glad you had a fun date. Everyone would like to share their hobby with someone right? I just don't show them all the bottles;)
Lonestar was my first tauer purchase. I chose lonestar over lddm. When your reading the over the top press release, you later wonder what the writer was getting at because the scent doesn't make you...
I have to agree with lampblack also and Masculine pluriel if you enjoy lavender.
MAAI is a beast. You really only need one spray. I did 2 decant sprays at work and was projecting like crazy.
Lol....turque is such a beast. One spray lasts all day!!!! Over half a bell jar.....I'm surprised it only lasted 6 months. Are those bell jars easy to spill? I've never seen one in person.
I've def bombed out the office before, but the only thing I ever dropped was a 3ml split of tribute all over my bedroom floor. Smelled great, but I was heart broken:(
Interesting. I'll try this tomorrow. I usually wait till fall and just wear it in the house during the summer. I think if you over sprayed in the heat it would clear out the place. I find the...
I've never tried Sahara noir, but I thought it was a straight incense frag? AA is about the amber.
I don't see the rock wearing cormandel, maybe some bleu....haha. I totally agree that coromandel is a great scent.....a little on the femme, but unisex and wearable.
Absolutely amazing! I use my decant sparingly. I doubt the formula will stay the same without mona around. Her vanille and cuir or great also
I had the same experience. I ended up finding a bottle in the sales forum. The juice is so dark and thick. I sprayed some on my forehand and when I got to work there was still a brown spot. I ended...
This looks interesting! This line always get top notch perfumers. Alberto morralis on this one and it's in the old bottle design....
Have any of you found scents that get better over time? I have a newer bottle of LADM and I'm comparing it to the old sample I have. The older sample smells much more round and full. It has more meat...
Lol.....I can see people in sephora looking at this bottle and scratching their head, "what the hell is oud??" Curious to see how far he goes with it. $150 a bottle is pretty steep for a designer.
I can't stand ebay. I rather deal on basenotes when it comes to frags.
That sucks man. Sorry to hear that. I always get excited when I check tracking and see the package is delivered. It sucks when you can't wait to get home to open up the package and it's not there. To...
Thanks for the pic! First time I've ever seen it. I thought it would look different. It looks like dirt with roots in it.
Chanel has sheldrake and Olivier polge. I expect great things from this house in the future.
I totally agree with badarun on the desert trio! I really love the exclusives as well and think the brand still rocks. I would love to see Wasser make a new male designer to put on the store shelves.
Luckily, I haven't found a slumberhouse that I like so I don't have to worry about these things. His stuff is just one huge basenote to me and I haven't found one that I enjoy.
Listen to bigsly!
I just can't imagine myself using that whole bottle of leather oud....even if I didn't have a huge collection. I'm almost 3 years in and still haven't finished a whole bottle. The only bottle that is...
Man...... This is crazy. I guess I need to cherish my 10ml split. If you don't catch the first release these days, I guess your out of luck.
I agree with you, but I hate their boxes. I pretty much ruined a box trying to get the bottle out.
Must have this.
Valentino uomo is a really cool looking bottle. Andy tauer's new packaging is really cool too....I just rather the wood caps. The guerlain exclusives make a very nice presentation. SHL and xerjoff...
50+ for pour un homme? I think it's good for any age and much better than 3. Although I love it, I bought it before a discorved basenotes and paid $80 for it on luckyscent. It's worth it's retail,...
I can't stand the fragrance bros. someone said it, but to much cheesy back and forth. Mickers is just to much. Robes is actually really good on camera. I can't think of his name, but it's a Dutch guy...
Dior homme or dior homme sport. L'homme is a good scent, but it so boring to me now. You can go on luckyscent and get some great niche frags at decent prices. Carthusia 1681, satellite pardpadachari,...
I did two sprays. I did receive a compliment from it.........she was prob about 50. If anyone has smelled MAAI, it has something really old school about it. She was really struggling to find a word...
I think they come out with something amazing at first, but after it gains popularity the money men try to get the perfumer to increase the margin as much as possible while keeping it close enough...
That would suck, but it's possible. Anymore than three sprays of mine and it's suffocating. 1-2 sprays gets amazing projection. I guess these changes are just a fact of life now. If it's a wow...
I really enjoy fate.
MAAI, rozy, and hard leather
Yes. What was the prob. I find it shoots very short bursts.
I choose sultan.....amazing niche perfume and it will always be an introduction for niche beginners.
Are these still available to purchase or were they just Middle East exclusives? I'm missing songe, but it's a very important piece!!! I'm a huge fan of the desert and art and material line.
I like Freddie with smelly thoughts. I found out about bouge through him and he got me interested in vero profumo also.
I can't believe sw is beating out m. I think s&w is year round. M patiently waits for cooler days or a nicely air conditioned house during the summer.
I don't think the parfum is nuclear. I think it's very linear though. The longevity is ridiculous. I want to layer eau savage with the parfum and see what happens.
I have both and don't find them similar. Spice and wood is very interesting. I haven't come across anything else like it. so airy and woody. Over spraying is never a prob with spice and wood either.
There should be enough left over stock to get us into the next decade.
I didn't know the packaging and bottle caps had changed. I miss the wood caps but the new tins are pretty cool.
I must say the LADM smells a bit weaker than my old sample. I sprayed...
Red oud is where I get my montale fix. Too many releases from this house, but I think everyone has at least one montale that they keep in their collection.
I've never smelled these, but I will give you two that will take care of you for summer, spring, fall, and winter. Dior homme and dior homme sport. Out of all my niche, these are a constant I my...
I agree. Get your hands on some blackbird.
The cap difference is interesting. My gold, lyric, and memoir are stamped on the cap. Is this universal, up till the reform?
