    Hello everyone,

    I know little to nothing about fragrance but I have been very interested by the world of scent, lately.
    Two things have drawn me closer to the resources found on Basenotes, in particular...

    My recent forays into wet shaving have led me to explore aftershaves, which in turn piqued my curiosity about "cologne". (What I recently understood to be a single monolithic category!)

    Secondly, I completed some sommelier courses not long ago, and the formal analysis and appreciation of wine aromas sparked my interest in perfumery. As someone who also enjoys the nuances of craft beer, fine cognac/whisky/rum, cigars and pipe tobacco - it is almost a natural extension of my other interests.

    I've already learned a great deal from the reviews and forums here. While a lot of people close to me are very sensitive to fragrance, I hope to indulge sparingly as a little luxury to myself. I'm even happy just to expand my general knowledge a bit! I've found reading about various perfumes extremely addictive, so far...

    Great post, delamain !. I concur that fragrant passions have parallels with the appreciation of a good single malt or real ale - connoisseurship exists in both worlds and is no less addictive in either.
    Good to have you here

    Thanks a million, Jon. Cheers!

    Another parallel between both worlds that is new to me is the controversy surrounding reformulation - I was oblivious to that notion in perfumery until a number of days ago! Of course, beer is constantly "reformulated" to reflect the changing characteristics of the available ingredients but there are also many examples of accountants making a change in the brewhouse that loyal fans bitterly detest! Reading the debates on various forums about differences between Shulton Old Spice and the P&G version also really drove it home for me about the effects of aging and "vintage variation" on fragrance! It should be obvious, of course, but I never truly considered the matter. Intriguing food for thought...

    To post in the "Items for Sale" forum, you have to have 500 posts OR have been a member here at Basenotes for one year, OR be a Basenotes Plus supporting member (i.e, pay a fee).

    Hallo basenotes community,

    I`m very happy that I`ve found a place, where a newbie can get so much information about the world of scents. I don`t know really much about scents so far, but I think it will change in future . After buying a few not really nice edts, I`ve decided, investing a bit more in parfume. To each other newbie who hesitate, through higher prices, I can say do it, invest more money, it`s worth it!

    Currently I own Tom Ford Black Orchid and Guerlain Shalimar, both are great fragrances, I think. I`m not scared of wearing parfume, which counts as "femine", when I like it and think it fits to me! Next buy would be Ysl Opium pour homme edp, maybe.

    Hello chimpet,

    On their website they list international stockists. This one is in the UK:
    Content Beauty/Wellbeing
    14 Bulstrode Street
    Marylebone, London
    W1U2JG
    +44(0) 203 075 1066

    http://www.beingcontent.com/

    Maybe you can stop in there, or call them to see if they can send you a sample.

    Hello everyone I have been browsing the forum for a while now but never signed up and finally decided to today. I already have a few frags but not nearly as many as I would like to have meaning I don't think I have a good collection yet. So I am here to learn from all of you and hope to one day have a awsome woredrobe like many on here.

    Though I've been browsing the site for a while, just registered recently. This is an awesome site to know pretty much everything about fragrances and I gotta say that reading about all the different scents is quite addictive!

    I'm a newbie to the world of scents, the only thing I have right now is a EDT of Nautica Voyage (which I think is good).
    Hoping to learn a lot along the way.

    Hi All, I'm new here and just learning about fragrances seeing I've become interested in starting a collection. I just own 5 so far (Drakkar Noir, Calvin Klein's Obsession, DKNY Men, Dirty English, and an older favourite of mine that I bought about 5 years ago as my first serious fragrance - Givenchy's Gentleman). I'm only 27 though I tend to like the ones that some people associate with older men (from what I've read, the ones referred to as '80s powerhouses/orientals etc).

    My question: Can anyone recommend other fragrances that are smell-alikes to Drakkar Noir and CK's Obsession for men? I'd really like to know others that are like these two seeing they're my favourite...

    Thanks for posting this very useful thread!

    Welcome Classicrock!

    One fragrance I think of as related to Obsession might be L'Anarchiste by Caron. It's spicy and sweet, has a slight metallic edge to it. Notes are orange flower, mandarin, cinnamon, mint, vetiver, sandalwood, cedar.

    Thanks furrypine! Those notes sound like my kind of thing! I will try and find it and sample it. Not quite rich enough for blind buys yet haha

    Hello Cindy
    What an exciting world you've yet to discover! I find fragrance just so exciting, and I get a real thrill every time I buy a new one. As for the snooty perfume counter assistants, there is a simple solution. You subtley lean across the counter and whisper, "Listen, love, you're a shop assistant. Get over yourself." Works a treat ;-)

    Welcome Nazgul! Hope to see more of you. If you want to branch out from Voyage, I suggest trying Set Sail St. Barts by Tommy Bahama; a citrus-aquatic with coconut, guava and tequila thrown in the mix

    Hi everyone!

    What a great site! After years of spending a fortune on the wrong perfumes, I can hopefully find out a lot more about the scents before I purchase them. Whilst writing, can anyone recommend the most realistic jasmine scent? I absolutely love jasmine and really wish to try out some jasmine based scents but the market seems to have quite a few. Any suggestions?

    Many thanks for reading.

    Hi marryat, welcome to Basenotes.

    Here's a few jasmine recommendations.
    1. Thierry Mugler Alien
    2. Serge Luten Ala Nuit
    3. Lush Lust

    All 3 are very bold scents, but if you love jasmine you would probably like these.

    I'm COMPLETELY new to fragrance & have been obsessing over basenotes.com. What a wonderful community! Thanks to your terrific reviews, I (at the ripe old age of 52) bought my first perfume, "First" (appropriately) by Van Cleef, and have just anointed myself with its elixir, now wafting up from my ... bosom? Yes, wearing this scent, it seems I've suddenly sported a bosom. I should be wearing something torn and velvety. And reciting William Blake. And raising a glass, feet up, to toast basenotes.com! Bravo to you, my dear scented eccentrics! I've come of age!

    I'm new to this website but not to perfume...I've been surrounded by perfumes my whole life. Only now am I starting to understand why I like/love some and dislike others. Hoping to train my nose with some light reading! Oh, and I just bought a bottle of ELDO's Putain des Palaces from MIN NY! for me for my vacation fund.

    I've been reading reviews on here and also youtube, testing and trying fragrances for a few months now and thought it was time to say hello.

    So far, my favourites are YSL Rive Gauche PH and Body Kouros, L'instant de Guerlain PH, Bulgari Black, CK One Shock and Paul Smith Man. I've tried most of the designers at stores around here but I'm looking to start getting some niche samples soon.

    Cheers

    Hi another newbie here. I know nothing about the technicalities of perfume but know the smells I like and when a perfume smells good or bad on me so am I odd because I`m happy enough with my simplistic approach to perfume ?
    I can look at a £6million Van Gogh and declare it ugly and view my grand daughter`s painting and declare it beautiful, I`m pretty much the same with perfume. Have smelled some ridiculously expensive ones and declared them awful and smelled some fairly cheap ones and loved them. I`ve just ordered some Attars and would be interested if anybody else has experience of them. I like the thoughts of dabbing little drops from crystal bottles and the lack of chemicals in them and the fact they`re supposed to mature with age. I may hate them but I`ll give them a go.
