    Default Choose Several - What are your favorite Aramis men's fragrances?

    THIS IS A MULTIPLE CHOICE POLL - VOTE FOR 1 OR ALL 20.

    YOU CAN ONLY VOTE ONCE, BUT WHEN YOU DO - YOU CAN VOTE FOR AS MANY AS YOU LIKE!


    Recently, in a thread on 'your favorite non-niche brand', I was reminded of the inroads Aramis has made into my collection.

    I have made almost a complete turnaround on this house - from initially avoiding Aramis at all costs, then accepting one fragrance, then two - to the point where, now, I am looking for additional Aramis fragrances to embrace.

    Polls are limited to 20 choices. The only fragrance I knowingly left off was Aramis Life My Summer. If that is one of your favorites or if there is another that I completely forgot about, please post a reply.

    What are your favorites?
    Which ones should I seek out?

    Havana / Havana Reserva are my favs. I tried and didn't care for Aramis, Tuscany, & JHL, though JHL will require more sampling. I would love to try Surface, Bermuda Tonic, & Tuscany per Uomo Forte...

    I always have a special place in my heart for Devin and New West.

    You guys who like melon in their scents should really try New West for Her also.

    JHL, got my vote. One of the best dry downs, I have ever experienced.

    Surface got my vote, Still one of my favorites. I also voted for Burmuda Tonic although its almost a bad Fruit Loops smell.

    Default Re: Choose Several - What are your favorite Aramis men's fragrances?

    THE Aramis for me. I'd add a vote for JHL too, but decided not to because I wanted to suggest greater grandeur for the original by voting for nothing else.

    Im with DustB... "Aramis" is probably my preferred Aramis scent.
    My introduction to the line was in 1994 when I bought the pre-electric shave lotion, purely and simply because there were no others on the market at the time. From time to time I like to revisit the splash.

    When I looked at the Aramis list I was reminded of how many I liked and owned in the past.

    For now, Aramis is - Been there done that for me. I've moved on. Don't get me wrong, many are still good and worth wearing, I just lost interest.

    Excellent thread, Two Roads. Aramis was my first and still among my favorites. Aramis and Azzaro PH were pretty much all I wore in the 80s. I hope to add the Classic Reserve to my collection soon. I was looking for it today, but failed to locate it. A very helpful SA offered call me on Monday to let me know who carries the limited edition version.

    Original Aramis and Aramis Forte are my favs, mostly because the original introduced me to my scentological hobby.

    I'm glad to be the first to pick Aramis Ice and the 2nd to pick Aramis Cool...

    the sad thing about Aramis line is, that many of its fragrances have not been tried by the majority which is voting now.....for example, i am sure i would vote for Havana but i havent smelled it yet and have had trouble getting a hold of it anywhere.

    back to Aramis Ice.....simply put as good and strong of a summer fragrance as it gets.......the mint is fighting the citrus for the supremacy and eventually overwhelms it.....yet without that annoying mint after taste.....you will not walk a block with this one on without someone asking you "what is that amazing smell?"......icyness personified.

    Devin was teh first scent I ever owned, and I still have a soft spot for the stuff. Havana is the Aramis product I wear most often now, and I very much miss Tuscany per Uomo Forte. Aramis has a knack for discontinuing its best products.

    For me, in order of preference, JHL, 900, Havana Reserva (and this only from memory a long time ago), and the original Aramis.

    Voted for BermudaT (my favorite) , Tuscany (2nd Favorite), TForte, Ice and Cracked Ice.

    I don't know what it is, but I've never gotten what so many of you guys see/smell in Havana. Truth be told, I haven't worn it for a day, I've only sniffed a left over tester at a friend's scent shop that he was closing, but, please forgive me, I got nothing but something that seemed ordinary.

    I'm a tobacco fragrance lover too--give me Quarum or give me death--but just what is the deal with Havana? I've read it compared to Montana PH red box, which I have and like, but I know I'd pick the Montana over it every day, and Halston Z-14 too, which I think is similar to Montana. Not to lose my point by mentioning comparisons to those other scents, but simply don't get the magic of Havana. Can't even think of voting for it here.

    Paul,
    Here is my order of preference. I don't even know all of them, and I thought this is my favorite house!

    JHL, Devin, Aramis Original, Portos, Tuscany Uomo Forte, Bermuda Tonic (gotta try this cheapie if you are looking for something for summer with lots of character!) , 900, Classic Reserve, New West, Havana (don't know what all the hype is about honestly), Havana Reserva, Tuscany Uomo

    Joe,
    Its an interesting scent, however I would prefer Aramis Original. Add a bit of citrus and a tarty smell to the Original, and you get this. I believe they have tried to formulate it in a way that might appeal to the younger crowd.

    I've been wondering something for a while, maybe you guys can clue me in. I read The Three Musketeers a while back, and Aramis and Porthos are the names of two of the three. Surely this couldn't be chance? Was a marketing gimmick, or was there some story behind it or something?

    Has anybody tried Aramis Crest Edition? When was it introduced, and has it been discontinued? I checked with Macy's, and they don't seem to know about it. I am getting it at a reasonable price for a discontinued item, if it has been discontinued. Just wanted to find out if anybody has smelled it, and what they thought about it.

    I googled it when I first saw your post. I found nothing except references to Polo Crest.

    Do you have a picture or a website to point us to?

    Devin was my third, I think. I just bought a bottle, too. This is a great thread for me, because I really want to see where Aramis has gone in the intervening years.

    Mudassir - thanks for getting the picture up there.

    Scentedmonkey carries a fragrance called Aramis "A" Series.

    The bottle looks different and doesn't display the 'crest' but it does have the "A" in the name. Could it be the new version of Crest?
