    Default scents you're obsessed with at the moment.

    scents you can't get enough of....ones that you are tempted to buy 15 bottles of back up because you couldn't bear the thought of not having it...

    right now...this week, this month...for me it is Kiton Black

    it is unfookinbelievable. in the same league as Cuiron or Knize Ten right now......totally caught me off guard too, but i'm officially obsessed.

    For me Chergui has grown on me significantly, and even challenges my Ambre Sultan for the top spot.

    Bought Givenchy Gentleman, sprayed with care as soon as I arrived home and, well, discovered a whole new world. Guess I am becoming addicted to longevity and sillage

    Everso, I am planning buying Knize 10. And as soon as I get the money, Mazzolari Lui. Is it too risky buying them blind? Well, I like surprises...

    For me, Guerlain L'Instant EDP has pushed GIT, MI, SMW, Jubilation XXV, Endymion and even the mighty LDDM to the side. I want to bathe in the stuff

    New York, PdN every time I wear this fragrance it reveales another facet of itself to me Ever changing, and ever evolving. : Patricia de Nicolaï is a genius. The work of a perfumer who is truly on top of his, or in this case her game.

    Ambre Narguilé by Hermes (Dimitri's fault ), but part of the excitement comes from my planned trip to Copenhagen to purchase one of those lovely box of four travel sprays.

    Does anyone know if you can mix and match those or, say, have four bottles of one specific fragrance?

    Wow, Everso posted about Knize 10, hmmm what a suprise? LOL. Man, you are definately obsessed with that stuff. I think you would trade your soul and/or sibling, parent, child, etc... for a back up bottle.

    For some reason, Creed Himalaya has been on the brain ever since I smelled a fresh bottle at Neiman's. Quite the difference from the discount retailers.

    Lately, I have been obsessed with finding specific scents within specific families.

    Of my last fifteen purchases, ten have been leather and three have been traditional citrus fragrances.

    Dior Homme, Rive Gauche PH, and Chanel PM (1955) have me in their spell. Curious that they're all designer.

    I think the reason I'm so comfortable with these and many other designer scents is that I can wear them pretty much anywhere, any time, without wondering if they're too "out there".

    And I pretty much did buy 15 bottles of back up, which is why I can't be buying anymore fragrances until 2016.

    sweet! Knize Ten is not for everyone, however those who like it LOVE it. I think it's quite simply the best male fragrance ever made. i think if you like stuff like Givenchy Gentlemen then you are on the right track.

    if you like sillage and longetivity----K10 is a monster.

    i dunno much about Mazzolari Lui though...so i can't comment on that!

    Why is it bad to enjoy a Creed scent?? BdP is actually a very high quality, complex, and enjoyable scent.

    I don't know that I would say I am obsessed but the Incense series by CdG has me hooked, especially Kyoto, Avignon and Ouarzazate. And no I am not planning on buying back-up bottles of these nor any other scents I own and love.

    At the moment it's Terre d'Hermes since it's my newest purchase. I wouldn't go out of my way to get a backup bottle since I don't see it being discontinued anytime soon. Next week I'm planning on getting Burberry Brit and I know it will be used heavily once I acquire it. I think it's the perfect cold weather fragrance, but it's not for everyone as witnessed by the reviews.

    Brit is a good choice, really spicy and distinct, not like anything else out there. Very suprised by this one (so much so that I am the proud owner of a bottle ).

    absolutely....Himalaya from discount retailers as opposed getting it at Saks or Bergdorf Goodman is night and day......not even comparable and i learned that the hard way.


    for me right now.....its Bleecker street by Bond # 9 and from designer side Juicy couture by dirty english.....what frustrates me so deep is that both of them arent stronger.....=/
    CDG 3 (The one you CAN'T find anywhere) for trade.
    Full 4 oz Bottle of Silver Mountain Water(95% full) for trade(purchased at Nordstrom not online). PM me for details.

    Yep, I think it's awesome as well. I was a fan of London but now a bit disappointed by it and sold to my friend. I still like London but I wish the top notes remained strong throughout and the longevity and silleage was better on the skin. Brit was one that I wasn't immediately impressed with but it grew on me. I just sprayed on my arm one time and put my sweater sleeve over it and forgot about it. The drydown is where this one shines. I unrolled by sleeve and it was lovely and was still going strong a while later. A second wearing on my neck and arm made me a lover of this one. It projected beautifully and lasted a long time for me to enjoy. I shall buy a large 3.3 oz. bottle next week!

    It has to be L'Anarchist, i keep discovering new notes the more i wear it. Must be the warmer weather playing up here in Australia.

    I can't wait for wednesday!

    My Domenico Caraceni bottle, shave cream, shower gel, and shampoo comes wednesday.

    After that, I'll buy C&S No.88, which I've wanted for a few months, then Trumper's GFT.

    I might also be getting Royal Aoud within the next couple of weeks.

    That Caraceni, though... Good stuff.

    There are still so many scents I just want to get to smell that owning nearly becomes second priority.
    Musc Ravageur, LDDM, LP9 being a few examples.
    Spoken of the ones I want to buy and bath in its Shalimar, Anteus and Pour Monsieur lately.
