    Eau D'Ernest:



    Designed by Bulgarian artist Daniel Bozhkov for the 9th International Istanbul Biennial.

    Bozhkov has created Eau d'Ernest, a perfume that evokes the spirit of American writer Ernest Hemingway. Through his books and public persona, Hemingway came to embody the myth of American individuality and virile courage. As Bozhkov writes, Hemingway is an emblematic person from a time when America smelled good. In 2003 Bozhkov stayed in the old Büyük Londra Oteli in Beyoğlu, where Hemingway stayed in 1922 while covering the Greco-Turkish War for the Toronto Daily Star. Eau d'Ernest is a contemporary scent for men inspired by Hemingway's idea of courage as grace under pressure. It captures the senses with the powerful mystique of safari and the exhilaration of the bullfight. Eau d'Ernest is an exuberant combination of sophistication and audacity with some vulnerable and tragic notes.
    Bozhkov developed Eau d'Ernest with Ulrich Lang Fragrances, New York and the perfumer Virginia Bonofiglio. Dark, brooding notes of burnt woods and sensual musks evoke bold masculinity while top notes of anis and basil, highlighted with Italian bergamot, add freshness and youthful athleticism.

    Proud owner of BSq (England's Berkeley Square house) of their newly launched White Amber, White Bergamot, and White Muguet perfumes, which are also organic to boot. (Not a huge green fan, but the natural oils make the scents live and breathe on your skin just as petals fly in the wind.) Their US distributor, from whom I also purchased Fig and Cherry as well as Lime and Clarysage, are now dropping this line.

    However, they are picking up the L'Erbolario line and will be launching an entire website for it as the ONLY distributors for those Italian perfumes and colognes in the United States. One basenoter noted that she believes she is the only owner of their Spezie but I actually have it as well and it is truly incredible. You can also obtain a sample of the L'Erbolario scents from the Perfumed Court. At any rate, the Spezie is unadulterated beauty in a bottle for winter and cannot wait to try their other scents. A great price as well for these handmade and natural oils combined into essences of spice, vanilla, dark florals and musk in Spezie.

    Sorry, this is not an ad, I'm just a huge fan of this company -- the London Bathecary in Charlottesville, VA. Check them out! Am focusing on Czech and Speake's Dark Rose as my next purchase, after I make my way through more of their L'Erbolario line first. (They also offer Floris, Truefitt and Hill, Taylor Old Bond, Penhaligon's, among others.)

    It's sort of vegetal, floral and powdery. Think Pinaud's Clubman and Lilac Vegetal combined and you'll be in the ballpark, but it's pretty unique especially given the superlow price tag. Definitely oldschool.

    Cinnamon Black Tea by Skin Food.

    Amazing scent for $15 USD per 1 ounce bottle in EDT form. A must buy if/when in Korea. (Or maybe Singapore.)

    Lemon, bergamot and slightly smoky black tea. A light touch of cinnamon, not much. More lemon than anything. Weird balance of "light citrus fresh" and "deep and sweet smokiness". Wearing it right now.

    I will mention all the ones that are only available locally:

    Locion Tabac de Wels Beige - Honey / Tobacco / Amber. Apparently, a Zino copycat that went awry in such a way it does not even remotely smells like it... (edit: a fellow BNoter told me it does share the same basenotes).

    Locion Tabac de Wels Black - Cinnamon / Patchouly / Leather. It wants to be Givenchy's Gentleman to no avail... good, but not as wonderful as the previous one.

    Locion Tabac de Wels Green - Fir / Carnation / Amber and Musk. Same thing in relation to Ralph's Polo, but the actual blend resembles it in a way wearers might not be aware of it, unless being told that that was the intention of the perfumist.

    Locion Tabac de Wels Cyan - Chocolate / Patchouly. Same as above in relation to A*Men, but the final product succees in making this version a far more masculine blend than the original.

    Complexity of all these Wels' blend is quite remarkable.

    McTaylor - a local classic with a heavy wonderful sandalwood base but horrid top notes. Worth waiting for the final product, though.

    Pino Colbert - fir / vetiver / lavender / spices / patchouly - it is what Pino used to be thirty years ago. Marvelous when tweaked with pine and juniper EO.

    Crandal - ylang-ylang / patchouly / sandalwood / vetiver / vainilla / oakmoss / musk - for those that think that Clubman and Canoé smell too harsh, this succees in translating the notes of traditional eaux into barbershop scents. The longevity is abismal, and it can be improved with musk, but this ingredient makes it loose much of its grace. Adding just one drop of organic vetiver EO to this blend ruins it in a remarkable way for it turns it into an acrid - pungent concoction giving way to a decent composition after thirty minutes of torturing top and midnotes.

    Alliance by Carlos Benaim - bergamot / cardamom / amber / vetiver / oakmoss - a stronger, more animalistic obviously less flowery and more aromatic take to Paco Rabanne's XS. My favourite between both at 3/4 the price, plus the added benefit that the deodorant is widely available at a fairly low price.

    Kevin Black - Bergamot / Clove / Thrush / Lavender / Cedar / Sandalwood / Patchouli - Alliance to the nth, albeit lacking complexity.

    Chester Ice - citric notes / lavender / amber / musk and neroli - for those that find powerhouses too bold, the blend shares notes with those of traditional eaux de cologne.

    Chester - a typical powerhouse bomb that is horribly longlasting and sweet, but fortunately for the those living in this part of the end of the world, it is not sillage-wise at all.

    Colbert - patchouly / tabacco / hay / neroli / petitgrain - an aromatic fougere a la Paco Rabanne, actually with analogies but unrelated to this classic, maybe due to its sweetness, that can be cloying.

    UAG Relax - Patchouly / Chamomille / Sandalwood - Soft and comforting, very flowery, very femenine.

    UAG Lestress - Lavender / Geranium / Angelica - Same as above, a little it more manly.

    UAG Cabernet - Cedar / Sandalwood / Black pepper / Grape - It does not smell like wine, at all. More of a flowery concoction my wife thinks it is femenine.

    UAG King - Orange / Sandalwood / Rosemary / Sage / Dandelions / Ginseng - an inexpensive version of Chanel Blue, without the last one's finesse. It still feels generic in terms of its excelent performance as a deja vu inducer.

    UAG Calming - Chamomile / Lavender / Lemon balm / Basil - I despise it for its coarseness, I venture to say it is a horrid concoction, but much to everyone's surprise, people do complement wearers. It is part of an aromatherapy line, so it is not intended to be worn as a perfume...

    UAG Meditation - Sandlawood / Incense / Patchouly / Cypress / Lemongrass - a patchouly bomb in disguise. Same as the above one.

    UAG Concentración y Estudio - Basil / Grapefruit / Rosemary / Bergamot / Peppermint / Patchouli / Lemon / Cedar / Dill - an aromatic fougere smell - alike so strong it resembles Vick's Vap-O-Rub.

    Branley - An english style eau with terrific sillage and longevity; the sort of scent to be worn with a tweed jacket while smoking a pipe.

    Ginell - A very, extremely, cheap intake of Dunhill's original (1934) top notes morphing into Chanel's 5 mid and basenotes. Weird stuff, harsh, pungent and, well, I hate to say it, even though I like it does smell inexpensive.

    LPG - Mitsouko's unrecognized sister is an animalic harlot. It has the same structure as Guerlain's classic but the mid notes are dominated by some very strong animalic-like notes. A local succes among sixty + year old ladies and young girls that don't want to play according to the fashion rules. Vastly improved if tweaked with musk and patchouly EO - to the point that I succeded in making it similar to the original Givenchy Gentleman. Unfortunately, I lost the recipe and I never achieved the same effect again.

    Flaño - A chypre in all the extension of the word that has been around in every Chilean drugstore since the 1930's. Of course, its price and popularity made it a staple among local workers; middle class Chileans, being so snobbishly class conscious, despise it for they consider it as the paradigm of "cheap". IMHO, it is marvelous, to the point of being hand in hand with such classics like YSL's Pour Homme or Lancome´s Trophee.

    Agua de Colonia Imperial Carnaval de Venecia - A succes back in the 1930's - 1940's. It was an oriental eau with cinnamon and amber accords, thus resembling to JHL.

    Ambré de Watteu - An amber-based eau, a much loved classic.

    Marlowe's 1 - An improved version of Cool Water: the calone is still present in the top notes but not so prevalent as in Davidoff's. It has a strong orange / juniper mid and base notes. Sillage - wise and better longevity,

    Marlowe's 2 - YSL's Jazz without the fecal accord in the top notes and strong powder like base notes: remarkable sillage and longevity.

    Both Marlowe´s are bolder than the original versions, so I guess their nose worked in adapting the blends to local preferences.

    Paulvic's Free Love - A sandalwood - based eau.

    Paulvic H - An aromatic fougere with green - bergamot top notes and amber - patchouly basenotes. Another favourite.

    Paulvic Gentleman - The top notes are similar to those of the vintage version of Givenchy Gentleman's, base notes revolve around a kind of patchouly very similar to Givenchy's.

    Vieja Lavanda Fulton -Lavender / Sage / Rosemary / Sandalwood. If tweaked with Musk, the final blend morphs into a very powdery composition - in this term, reminiscing of Royal Copenhagen and Habit Rouge - with remarkable longevity.

    Milonga de Profvmvm BUE - A poor - man Terre d'Hermes, literally. Someone mentioned that is a little more subdued due to cologne-like notes.

    Equus Pampa - A long long time ago Puig's Quorum used to be like this: Quorum's new formulation makes one realize that Equus indolic notes is what it takes for a fragrance to be a powerhouse, with all the pros and cons around. Good sillage and longevity, but it feels horribly dirty to the point that if you apply it after taking a bath, you have the weird feeling that you should shower again. Welcome to the late seventies / early eighties...

    Latitude - Anise / Cognac / Lavender / Spices / Geranium / Sandalwood / Vanilla / Patchouly. Looks like an aquatic but it is def a traditional oriental because of a very strong powdery opening. I imagine Saint Julien's nose (the manufacturer's of Equus as well of La Martina's scents) to be a respectable old man with a huge disregard for the styles in fashion nowadays.

    Avon's Woody Musk - B*Men´s predecessor, seriosuly.

    Avon's Legend Noire - same as above with more floral notes.

    Devas Magnetique - an aromatic bomb made of natural ingredients, harsh, pungent and fleeting. That is what you get without synthetics, I guess.

    Natural de Fulton - a very fleeting eau that is a classic among old ladies.

    Agua de Colonia Lariviere Clásica - a not so fleeting eau with strong neroli accords on the vein of traditional English scents.

    Ona Saez Fiel - Leather, amber and vanilla blended the old way even though the designer (Ona Saez) is one of the trendiest around: a company called Comimpar manfactures all their lines but it seems the nose has a preference for the classics. Except for Ona Saez' Peace, wich is obviously similar to JPG's Le Male, all the rest smell like modern interpretations of old time scents.

    Will post pictures too.

    When I first put this on, it reminded me a little of John Varvatos, but as it faded, it reminded me nothing of it. It actually reminds me a lot of Baldessarini Ambre. There are so many similarities. It's rich, thick very ambery and creamy. The differences are that Ambre smells a bit more natural and sophisticated, and this smells more refined, synthetic, still very creamy and ambery, but with no apple note like in Ambre. Instead of the apple note, there's a mix some vanilla and tobacco. This is 100% a fall/winter fragrance.

    I intend on trying more of the Cuba frags in the future, but I may stop if they keep seeming to mimic other fragrances.

    Davidoff Coolwater

    A rare scent, having parallels to the more common and readily available Creed's Green Irish Tweed.

    Half of my perfumes are not even listed in Basenotes database, so I believe I must have some perfumes nobody else has.
    Some examples:
    Chevrolet by Vapro International (made in Italy) Very, very good
    Superior Man by FTI (England) Not bad.
    Eau Florale de Lavande by Melvita (France) Pleasant
    French Leather by BMD Products (France) Sucks
    Covert by Romane Fragrances (Illinois) Excellent
    Indian Vetiver by Bath and Body Works, identical, if not better than Grey Vetiver by Tom Ford
    and one I do not even now who makes it: Perfum du Monde (mediocre at best)

    If it is by Adidas, we know it is bad, so no need to say that.

    "Old Fish". I think it may have been a knock off of Old Spice. I'm embarassed to say I still have the bottle. I don't recall what it smelled like 25 years ago when the bottle was fresh but now it smells like low tide on a hot Summer day.

    Can you describe either of these in detail, especially Khateer ? Is the Tuberose note in Khateer similar to the medicinal opening of Windsor I or Tubereuse Criminelle ? And what type of Spice occurs in Khateer ? is it a cinaamic/clove sweet spice ? Or a peppery/cumin type spiciness ?
