    I'm about the Comme des Garcons 888 too, gotta love the name. Don't know anything about the scent though.

    The Prada men's counterpart to Infusion d'Iris sounds interesting. Anyone know the nose on this one - is it going to be Daniela Andrier who did both the pour Homme and the original Infusion d'Iris?

    Euphoria intense - well, I refuse to let myself have expectations when it comes to a CK scent, but the top notes of that scent are great IMO. If they can increase the longevity and amp up the intensity of the dry down, that'll be a mass market winner.

    I'm interested to see what that Dali scent is going to be, too.

    I'm really interested to see what David Yurman's collaboration with Clarins will be like (will it be another classic?). Ditto for B.P.I's new releases (the new Gaultier and John Varvatos scents), and the new Ferragamo unisex scent. Even CK Euphoria Men Intense sounds promising, with its agarwood note (I wonder if the Macy's flagship on 34th Street will have it when I'm in NYC next week?).

    And, of course, anything new from Thierry Mugler intrigues me.

    I won't be holding my breath for any of these. It simplifies my frag search since I can focus on what's already available.

    I'm mildy curious about Juicy's men's frag.

    What ever happened to the plan to release Aura from the Perfume coffret? I thought it would be out by now.

    I can probably respond after my head keeps spinning looking at all the debuts for 2008...GEEZ!

    BTW, was Dior Homme Intense ever released in the US? Where??

    Given that this is a list of fragrances, surely that's an endorsement.





    I'm looking forward to the Juicy scent for men. The girlfriend and I really like their female offering, so I'll give this a try.

    Maybe the Hermes Jardin and a sniff of the Mugler coffee, but other than that, nothing here has me the slightest bit interested. Sounds like more crap to appeal to the lowest common denominators.

    Juicy Couture for men? Jay Z? Jessica Simpson? Jennifer Lopez? Go ahead America, keep digging your own hole and make your checks out to MTV.

It was developed by perfumers Pascal Gaurin and Yves Cassar, and features ginger, saffron, cardamom, orris, white cedarwood, driftwood, vetiver and musk.

    The new Brooks Bros are going to have a hard time matching/exceeding the original BB EdT. There is already a fresh scent in BB Country Club.

    Being a Brooks Brothers groupie - I am looking forward to their scent and don't feel it will be ground breaking just a clean discreet classic.

    Angel Men Intense - which is suppose to be just coffee/patchouli/woods no sweets in this one I was told. Please don't let it be B*Men rebottled like IceMan was Summer Flash.

    Default Re: List of 2008 fragrance releases - which ones are you excited about?

    Well, you asked for it -


    Bond no. 9 Andy Warhol Union Square - Its like taking the stage to perform after Judy Garland(Silver Factory) How will it manage?

    Burberry The Beat - Ive always felt that Burberry does well for commercial scents

    Comme des Garcons 888 - I like the look of gold - will I like the smell?

    Dolce & Gabbana The One for Men - will it be a huge, safe, over-hyped, disastrous bore like the Light Blue was? (probably...)

    Etat Libre d'Orange Tom of Finland - I have my pre-conceived ideas for how this should smell. Lets see if they're right.

    Gres Hommage a Marlene Dietrich trio - These could either be really fantastic or really terrible - either way - you can't deny - they're really ambitious. For some reason I see these as being either all winners, or all losers - I hope they're cohesive - it can be achieved, but can they achieve it?

    Hermes new fragrance in Jardin series - very excited about this one. Love and own the first 2. Wonder which garden we've chosen this time...

    Ineke Evening Edged in Gold - her first 4 were so incredibly boring but this one actually sounds like it might achieve something interesting - will it?

    John Galliano debut fragrance - I wonder if it will be like the candle.

    Manuel Canovas new fragrances - I liked what I've smelled of his so far...

    Marc Jacobs Splash Basil - just the Basil one. I love Basil. I liked his Ivy and his Grass. They are what they are - if you buy them expecting complexity - then it must be said - you may not be all that smart.

    Paul Smith limited edition scents men & women - Ive always thought PS released above average stuff - nothing terribly safe, Story was marvelous.

    Prada male counterpart to Infusion d'Iris - I had no idea. And here I am thinking the first one was meant to be Unisex. I, of course can imagine many ways to make it more masculine - but I dont find it all that feminine - so Im not seeing the need for this. But, Ive always felt one can never have to many iris fragrances, so bring it on. I'll take 'em all. I hope it's not as droll as [no] Amber Pour Homme. Meaning - I hope the Infusion for men actually has detectable iris in it. Wouldn't that be chivalrous of them?

    Rochas Soleil - because its Rochas.

    Teo Cabanel fragrance for men - LOVE this line. Exceptional scents.

    The Art of Shaving Lavender - I dont like Lavender. But I like this line. Great sandalwood.

    I'm always interested in the Salvador Dali's. There's a new one available in Australia now called Salvador Dali Black pour homme in a rectangular bottle which is a chypre and that should be here soon.

    How can Bvlgari Aqua get any more marine??? Or do I not know what marine is?
    I found some pictures:





    Coming early next year from Bvlgari, Aqva Pour Homme Marine, a new fragrance for men:

    The scent is designed to evoke the natural freshness and vitality of the ocean, using ingredients such as neroli, grapefruit, white cedar wood and the aquatic plant posidonia, a key component of its Aqva Pour Homme predecessor. The juice was created by Jacques Cavallier.

    Bvlgari Aqva Pour Homme Marine will be available in 50 and 100 ml Eau de Toilette
    A more aquatic aquatic than Bulgari Aqua was? :brolly:

    Okay, if the bottle/packaging says something: the original Bulgari Aqua was more of a dark, cold, salty, seaweed drenched sea. The new packaging and bottle is much lighter and brighter, so I suppose this one will smell just like some tropical beach with hot babes or something like that.

    You know, like Acqua di Gio. :brolly:

    the above is listed as a new men's fragrance.
    Aqua Pour Homme Edition Limitee (m)

    on fragrantica.com



    is the new Marine scent the officially sanctioned US Marines version?

    semper fi

    PS Sephora had an exclusive last year on Aqua where the juice was exactly the same scent, darker juice and the word Aqua was larger.

    Are bottle collectors driving demand?



    Aqva Pour Homme Edition Limitee
    This limited-edition interpretation of Bvlgari's AQVA Pour Homme is distinguished by a new luminous color, inspired by the iridescent reflections of water.

    Characterized by the chromatic contrast between the AQVA logo and the glass in a play of optical effects that highlights its unique design, this aromatic blend of marine scents is an exaltation of intense freshness with a woody essence that's suffused with mineral elements for a touch of sensuality and richness. Notes:
    Mandarin, Petit Grain, Santolina, Posidonia, Mineral Amber.
    Style:
    Fresh. Elegant. Mascul ine.

    Hm, I was hoping for something more exciting from Bulgari. The last past years were not really exciting from that side.

    Prada's Male Counterpart
    A*men Pure Coffee
    CdG 888
    Dolce & Gabbana, despite the female version being a bit commercial, it's still very nice, hoping the mens will be similar to something wearable, but still different
    The Tom Ford fragrance for women has me interested, as I hope it's got a unisexish vibe to it
    and Marc Jacobs Splash Grapefruit, the Amber one is divine!

    American Beauty Beloved (based off the movie!?...this has me curious)
    The Brooks Brothers ones
    The Hermes one
    The Prada one (will it also contain iris?)
    The Art of Shaving Lavender

    And Aqva "Marine"??? Isn't the existing Aqva marine enough for them? Maybe Cavallier will do something nice with it, but I'm not holding my breath.

    I am rarely excited about new fragrance offerings; they always are letdowns. The last thing that was actually rewarding was Absolu de Rochas, oh and Alchimie also. I guess the only thing on the list that might be of interest would be the Gres, Marlene Dietrich trio. But I am not going to set myself up for another letdown.

    I really like the classic AQVA pour homme, and I also like light fresh colognes...
    ...but this new AQVA Marine to me smells very much like a cologne I smelled in the 90's, IDK which one, it's not bad, but very dissapointing given how great AQVA ph classic is IMHO.

    I smell none of the seaweed/seagrass that dominates AQVA ph classic

    Thumbs down on the new AQVA marine.

    I just want to know how the new Ed Hardy Fragrance smells.
    I´m waiting for the new Versace; Dolce & Gabbana The One for Men (March); Rocawear (Jay-Z) new fragrance under Elizabeth Arden (Fall 2008); Bvlgari Aqva Pour Homme Marine (early 2008).
    But there is nothing special...I´m happy with my Creeds :-)

    Givenchy Ange ou Demon Tendre - my initial impression of Ange ou Demon was "Mmm... smells like a Hypnotic Poison rip-off..." Now, the follow-up uses 'tendre' in the product name - just like the follow-up to Hypnotic Poison (Tendre Poison).

    Now, that's taking the piss...

    Actually Tendre Poison was born as a springtime, less ambery and greener counterpart for the original Poison and was launched before Hypnotic Poison... Anyway in general I don't like any of these re-editions, or morphed formulas... To me all of them are just simptoms of lack of creativity and attempts of easy cash making.

    Ahhhh, yes! It's all coming back to me now. I stand corrected!

    Completely agree with you about those re-editions, though.

    So far, I am not excited about any of the 2008 scheduled releases.

    I have been happily exploring fragrance families and recently started exploring specific fragrance notes.

    Although I have a number of 2007 and other recent releases, my interests trend to the old timers. The average release year for my collection is 1982!
