    Default Mazzolari Lui

    I read a lot of positive comments about Mazzolari Lui on an earlier "manly scent" thread, and it sounds like something I'd like to try, but I can't find anyplace on the net that sells it. Where can I score me some??

    I was just looking at the Luckyscent site and was shocked at how they're gouging clients. My good friend was kind enough to pick up a bottle of the Patchouly Mazzolari for me when she was in Milan and the cost was only $110 dolllars(and that was in Canadian funds!)

    Every thing lucky scent is overpriced , I purchased Hinoki from Tobi for 25 bones less and Miller Harris for 50 bones less.

    I also recommend trying it from a sample first (from luckyscent or Perfumed Court). It is beastly, and I am sure alot of people would be turned off by it. I happen to love it, when not overapplied!

    Mazzolari Lui is a powerhouse - I would not blind buy it - test first! I prefer Mazzolari's Patchouli to Lui even though both use patchouli extensively but the Patchouli fragrance is a bit more natural use of patch. One of if not the best patchouli fragrances there is!

    Just wondering why so many people are recommending testing first. Personally, I love non-trendy, unique fragrances that many people with more mainstream tastes may consider smelly. Two of my all-time faves are Yatagan and Kouros, both of which seem to be very controversial amongst fragrance lovers as being too "animalic" and potent.

    Could some of you be a little more specific about why I should test first? The reason I'm asking is because I don't know how the heck I'm going to be able to lay my hands on a sample - I can't find it anywhere in even the high end stores in my area (Boston).

    Oops - I just went to LuckyScent and noticed they sell samples.

    By the way, is Mazzolari Lei the same as what I call "Mazzolari Lui"?

    Shamu, in Italian, Lui is "he" and Lei is "she". In the luckyscent web site, there is a link for men's fragrances. If you are having trouble finding Lui, try linking through the men's side.

    Thanks. I knew "lui" was "him" in French, but I didn't know it was the same in Italian. I found Mazzolari Lui on the site now.

    Default Mazzolari Lui - Bois du Portugal on steroids??

    Now that I've been sent in the right direction, I just ordered a sample of Mazzolari Lui from LuckyScent. The web site describes it as some wild, spicy, powerful scent. The way I read it, it sounds like it's Creed's Bois du Portugal on steroids. Am I right?

    I'm interested in hearing about whether there are any other fragrances that it smells similar to. I know, I know, I'll find out when I get my sample, but my curiosity is killing me NOW.

    It is very strong animalic components (castoreum, at the very least) combined with woody, smoky notes and patchouli. It has a definite leather and booze vibe. I don't know what BdP smells like, but I don't imagine Creed as a house would release something like Lui.

    Sounds like it's exactly the kind of frag I'm looking for!! I can't wait to get my sample! Your description reminds me of Yatagan.

    Hopefully you mean the vintage GG - the new formulation is lousy, IMO.

    You will be fine if you wanted to get it blind. We would appear to have similar tastes and Lui is a favorite of mine. I think I'll wear it tomorrow as well.

    Yatagan is dry and herbal, that's not Lui at all. Lui is amber and patchouli

    Yes it would be closer to the vintage juice. Maybe if vintage GG and Parfum d'Habit had a wild night this would be their offspring.

    While i never tried Yatagan ,i own Kouros and don't care much for it .However Lui is lovely....But i m also a Patch lover so maybe that's why Lui appeals to me.

    Although they are both potent frags, Lui is in a class by itself regarding its animalic strength and longevity. I don't see any similarities between the two regarding their notes.

    The closest things I know are Musk Ravageur and Laura Tonatto's Re. Yup: big, dirty patchouli, sweetish amber and something or things animalic.

    it doesnt smell anything like BdP. think of it as a Fur coat scented by sweetened patchouli and amber..

    I don't mean to be off topic but I looked at Tobi.com and about all they had was Commes des Garcons. Is the stock always changing? I found the fragrance section very small, unless I was looking at the wrong place.
