    Default Let's have another SSD!

    Reading a post by colognejunkie I thought that we should do another SSD this year. I was with all you wearing M7 in the first one and, I heard there was a second. Anyway I hereby open nominations for the next SSD! Keep in mind it should be something a lot of people will have. So if you recommend something like Montale Santalsilver it probably won't register. I'll start and nominate a few.

    Bvlgari PH
    Lanvin L'Homme
    Guerlain Vetiver
    YSL Jazz
    YSL Live Jazz
    YSL Rive Gauche
    YSL M7
    Azzaro PH

    I'm sure almost everyone here owns Habit Rouge.

    Default Re: Let's have another SSD!

    I second Guerlain Vetiver, YSL Live Jazz and M7, as these are the scents on the list I own.

    Yeah. Habit Rouge is omnipresent here, I think.

    Default Re: Let's have another SSD!

    Vetiver Guerlain was the final choice for SSD II on 1 August last year. So I propose we drop that one and also, to make it more interesting, not go for another Guerlain this time.

    When would we do it? That may influence the style of fragrance.

    Live Jazz is all I can offer - but for what???

    Yes.

    Don't forget to set a date for it. You'll need to have reasonable time to set polls up and set a date. My suggestion would be sometime in later September to early October.

    I tried to establish SSD #2 as a democratic thing so I set up a series of polls to narrow down the scents so everyone was in on making the decisions. Gettting the first poll will be the trick. Someone will have to make the initial selections though from the list of nominations (or at least that was how I did it).

    I will nominate:
    Chanel-Platinum Egoiste
    Guerlain-Jicky
    M&W-Tabac Original (won best mass market last year I think)
    Versace-The Dreamer (even though I hate it and it is vile and very very disgusting, I like a challenge. )
    Armani-Black Code
    YSL-Live Jazz (it is worthy)

    I think Guerlain (Vetiver) and YSL (M7) have been covered in past SSDs (haven't participated, just read about it). So we should go with anther house. One from the following houses -

    Armani
    Bulgari
    Creed
    Versace

    Don't think a YSL has made it yet.

    From what I recall, the SSDs were as follows:
    #1 Cuiron
    #2 Guerlain Vetiver
    #3 Azzaro Visit ??? (I don't recall)

    On the feminine board, I believe their first SSD was Creed - Angelique Ensense (sp?) ... so there is room for a niche frag to make it. I don't know what the others were, but I'm sure Tigs or MJH recall.

    M7 was also definitely a past SSD fragrance. Thank goodness someone donated a sample vial to me, because I would have been sorely disappointed to have bought this one blind!

    Anyway, since this SSD will probably end in the early fall, I suggest we nominate some scents we wouldn't mind wearing then. From the list of most-commonly held fragrances, I agree with and own A*men, Envy, D&G PH, Guerlain Vetiver (but agree we should probably exclude this scent), Millesime Imperial, and Habit Rouge. Given the season, I would also nominate Colonia Assoluta, Vetiver Extraordinaire, Zino, 1881 and 1881 Amber, Rocabar, Must de Cartier and L'Essence de Must de Cartier, and Aramis Tuscany and Tuscany per Uomo Forte.

    Why don't we try some that aren't as well know? as obscure as Creeds are to the general public, I'm sure most of us have already smelled them. Likewise with A*men.

    Why not something a little more unique, like any of Patricia Nicolai's fragrances? Or Trussari Uomo? JHL?

    Among scents already mentioned, I would vote for:

    Envy
    Patricia de Nicolai New York
    Zino
    Colonia Assoluta

    Another to consider is Musc Ravageur, which seems to be well liked here, if not widely owned.

    Ah, yes, the good ol' SSD.

    Live Jazz would be a great pick, as would Bvlgari PH, Mugler Cologne (surprised that there hasn't been an SSD for this one yet), or A*Men or B*Men.

    Better yet, how about a Creed SSD for our first niche SSD? Some good Creeds for an SSD would be GIT, SMW, MI, Himalaya, or OV. Given the current prices of Creeds online, I'm willing to take the plunge.

    Like most of you, I'd stay away from the previously worn smellies (Guerlain Vetiver, Visit, M7, and the late Curion).

    Anyone who wants a Creed SSD say yay! [smiley=thumbsup.gif]

    Top 5 for Winter:
    1) Straight to Heaven - By Kilian
    2) Back to Black - By Kilian
    3) M7 (vintage or Oud Absolu) - YSL
    4) Aventus - Creed
    5) John Varvatos Vintage

    Well I would like a SSD that would last all day, or atleast half of the day, not flee in a couple of hours

    Sorry, I love the smell of every Creed out there, but the longevity certainly leaves MUCH to be desired.

    ROCK ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I hardly have any of the fragrances named here except D&G PH. If we do this in a couple months I'm HOPING to have Creed OV by then, which I have heard some consent for. Chrome might be another good option, I've heard several people here say they have that. Keep the suggestions coming!

    Wow the only ones I own on that list are Creed GIT and MI, my SMW ran out. Both of these last a long time on me and I'd pick either one for an SSD but its hard for everyone to get access to Creeds. My suggestion......

    I will start a poll shortly for the Round 1 SSD V candidiates. It will be comprised of 20 smellies, including at least 5 niches. Ready?

    Thank you for posting this! I think that it would be more beneficial for everyone to pick a scent that the majority of members HAS...not neccesarily picking a "quality" fragrance that lots of people love, but not as many people have. It just seems that the point of SSD is to get the most people wearing the same scent as possible.

    Maybe not excactly the same, but why not all wear 'a' vetiver? That way not everyone has to own the same fragrance and you can use Guerlain's, Serge Lutens's, Carven's, Lanvin's ... As long as it has Vetiver in the name [smiley=laugh.gif]
