    Default Narceso Rodriguez For Him Musc Collection

    Just received a decant of the new, limited edition Narceso Rodriguez For Him Musc Collection.

    I've tried hundreds and hundreds of fragrances over the years, even the rarest and most lauded niche scents, but I've found a select few that I've wanted to purchase. Of those, I usually wind up not loving most of them and only actually keep about 3 or 4 in my regular rotation. Now that you see how picky I am, perhaps you'll appreciate the gravity of what I'm about to say...

    NR Musc Collection is exceptionally beautiful and highly refined from start to finish. In fact, I like it so much that I'm going to do whatever it takes to locate and buy the larger 3.4 oz bottle. If you've ever wandered by a fragrance counter, sprayed a little of the regular NR For Him and thought--as I did--that it was nothing special, do yourself a favor and get a hold of this stuff. Night and day.

    Hey - I was just about to reply to your PM. The limited edition musc collection is (as far as I know) only available as a 1.7oz for ~$85. It's not to be confused with the musc oil (the Nordstrom link you sent), which is $155 I believe, also as a 1.7oz. I absolutely love the musc collection EDP and the musc oil. The regular EDT is also my least favorite of the three (though I do still like it quite a bit). I haven't been able to find this limited edition musc collection for him online anywhere to purchase. I've seen the women's, but not the men's version. I had to have the SA at Sak's call me when they got just 3 in and hold one so I could get it... and it took a couple months.

    Here's a link to what the bottle looks like, just so you know what you're looking for.

    Veuve is one of the commenters there and said it's easy to find where she is, so perhaps people in Europe have better access to it?

    Thanks for the info. The Narciso Rodriguez specialist at my local Saks told me today that it comes in a 1.7oz for $65 and a 3.4oz for $85. She's trying to hunt down a bottle for me as we speak. By the way, I don't see your link but I think I know what the bottle looks like now anyway since I came across your blog online while researching.

    Thanks again!

    You know what - that sounds right. Now that I think of it, I think I only paid $65. Stuigi and I both got one - Stu, do you remember how much they were? I vaguely recall the SA saying something about 85, so that must have been referring to the larger one. Hell, I'd buy a large one now in addition to my small one if I could get one

    I think I paid $59 (1,7 oz) at Saks in Chicago. I bought the last bottle at the time (October). The SA said he gets only a few in at a time.

    jrd4t- Please PM me. They were $65 minus 10% for a Saks promotion. I know of no 3.4 oz. version.

    I'm confused. Which fragrance are you excited about CreedFan? Narciso Rodriguez Musc For Him or Narciso Rodriguez For Him EdP?

    Default Re: Narceso Rodriguez For Him Musc Collection

    Neither one. I like the new, limited edition Narciso Rodriguez for Him Musc Collection, which is an edp.

    It's virtually impossible to find. If the opportunity presents itself, I intend to buy several bottles. I'll keep a couple and sell one to pay for the other two when the price skyrockets.

    I bought one here in Singapore, its really quite awesome. Purchased it at Takashimaya, at S$110 (which comes to about US$79). They had something like 3 or 4 bottles left, and said once that was gone, there would be no more. I was tempted to buy more bottles to hoard, but retrained myself.

    Default Re: Narceso Rodriguez For Him Musc Collection

    After a comprehensive search, I was able locate and order four (4) of the last remaining 1.7oz bottles in the US. Unfortunately, there were no more 3.4oz bottles available. Normally I would never buy so many bottles of anything, but this stuff is so good and will never be available again. I figure that my dad will take one, I'll keep two and sell one at some point.

    Talk about a limited edition--it seems like there was an extremely limited supply of this stuff for a very short period of time.

    Never tried the oil myself, but I hear it's quite nice. However, I'm not sure I would like dealing with the mess of using a splash bottle of oil. The edp musc is fantastic and I've read where it's the best of the three versions (edt, musc collection edp and musc oil).

    This sounds like an interesting scent. On the other hand, I have a different kind of issue with NR for Him EDT... even that is just a bit too musky for my liking. I initially hated the scent altogether, but something about it started to get to me. I wore it a few times and found that after the topnotes wore off, there were several types of musk flaring off my skin and I didn't like all of them.

    It's like underneath all of the green, peppery violet masculine, the musk of my mom's Cinnabar is lurking. I just wish they would have made a flanker with the musk dialed back a bit.

    So I found a local source for this - there were at least 3 bottles left for about $90 (including taxes) for 50ml - I was already wearing perfume, so I only tried it out on a cloth strip, and compared it to a shot of EDT.

    The SA at one place told me it was limited only for this season, never to return, but an SA at a different store that sold out of them said it might come back because it was so popular. Is that possible, or is that just a way of reeling me back to the store?

    As for the NR EDP, I generally think testing on paper (or cloth) is almost useless, but so far my impression was that the EDP is very, very smooth vs the brash opening of the EDT. The drydown is also mellow. They're quite different. The EDP was a little feminine, at least on paper, but certainly intriguing. Could it have iris in it? It has that laundry smell that iris blends sometimes have.

    I'll have to go tomorrow and try it on my skin before buying.

    You have quite the nose. I believe I had read where the EDP replaced the violet of the EDT with iris (or was it the other way around?).

    I don't think of myself as having a good nose, but you're right, this review here is close to what I was saying.
    http://www.fragrantica.com/news/Narc...tion-1142.html

    They replaced the brash violet and violet leaf topnotes with creamy iris. Gives it a very different character at the beginning.

    Does anyone know if there's actually a chance of this coming back soon like that SA told me, or is that likely to just be BS to get me back in the store?

    German "Douglas" carries some "Oil Parfum" of Musc for him. Price: 155 € for 50ml.

    I've only once smelled Narciso Rodriguez for Her in 2005 on a (then) half naked female neighbour I had met for the first time two hours earlier in a bus. She invited me to her place and asked me what she could wear when meeting her boyfriend that night. I gave her a sample of the Nar.Rod. I then told her it needs to be applied to bare skin, so she showed me the black dress she would wear that night. She was not as slim as the dress so I had to help her (I did that). While I was standing behind her (I had to help with the dress!) I was intoxicated by my nice sample. Later she told me she had never smelled anything this beautiful. Of course, because she was a bit...ignorant in terms of scents.

    Well, I certainly had a nice show this afternoon. But I can't remember the male version of Nar.Rod. (Besides, 155 € for a...well...male designer scent seems completely insane to me.)

    Nice story DesGrieux! That's the musc oil version though, not the "musc collection" version we're talking about - confusing stuff - we're talking about a limited edition EDP spray.

    Anyhow, I'm glad you made the mistake because I got to hear your story!

    I bought the last bottle today in a Douglas store in Berlin (55€) but it does not seem to be that rare over here. A couple of bottles are still available at the Cologne airport. I will check Tegel airport tomorrow and buy one more bottle if it's available.

    The fragrance itself is really good, reminds me a lot of Rive Gauche for some reason. Rather clean musk in my opinion.

    Sorry to say but i just snatched the last one! I'm usually not the type to be into heavy musky scents but i still went for it as my fiancee loves musky type scents on men. I'm usually a woody/oriental kind of person, will this grow on me? maybe with a little spritz on the chest while rocking a suit? what do u fellas think?

    I actually find it to be a little powdery but I still really like it. Seems to be very versatile, definitely would work with a suit.
