    Default Help me ID a frag by the bottle description?

    My GF told me about this one... She saw it recently, has no idea what it is/called, but absolutely loved it. Naturally, I'm curious.

    This is what I know:
    Able to be found in non-super high end stores

    amber colored.
    ~6 inches tall at 100ml
    triangular-ish bottle

    (at this point I was thinking Pi, but)
    Has an atomizer on it... I think that's what they're called, those squeeze things. Well, it has one of those.

    She not 100% it was a male frag, but smelled masculine, and was in the men's sections.

    She described it as forresty and almost salty.

    Any help?

    I have no idea.

    Have you called the store where your girlfriend saw it and asked them?

    No, because she doesn't remember which store it was in...


    I mean, it's not a huge deal to me, she just tends to despise 80% of frags, so I'm very curious as to what is in that one.

    You may need to ask her to retrace her steps.
    Perhaps she can recall the colour of the packaging sitting with the bottle... or if it was a new release, or older frag... perhaps the shape of the lid/cap...
    Any extra clues will help us all

    I imagine she could find the store easily enough, if we go there, I'll make sure we find it. For now though, that's at least a week, probaly two in the future...

    I just emailed asked for any other memories, that was it. Dark amber bottle, about 6 inches high, squeeze sprayer. I was hoping the squeeze sprayer would help some, but I'm assuming it didn't?

    Oh well, no biggie if no one knows, I can always have a new excuse to browse for new frags now...

    Might be a Prada. I think they made a show of putting a bulb atomizer on something. Don't know which and don't know for sure though.
    That girl, that bottle, that mattress and me.

    Atomizers are usually a woman's fragrance. Was it an atomizer that was just a bulb on top or small hose with a bulb?

    triangular-ish bottle? What type of triangle?

    I agree that Prada is a likely candidate for the bulb atomizer, but their bottles are rather blocky.

    This is the Prada Man bottle - maybe you could show it to her?

    Yeah, I'll send that off, see what she says. It's not really 'amber' colored, but then again, I'd take something with a squeeze sprayer as more indicative of the one she's thinking of than the color...

    Maybe Acqua Classica Borsari Parma? I think the bottle appears to taper toward the bottom.



    There are three reviews in the basenotes directory describing the scent.
