    Default What is Basenotes' Acqua di Gio?

    Acqua di Gio has taken over America.

    Which scent has taken over Basenotes?

    Acqua di Spray. Kidding.

    TdH, Rive Gauche seem to be pretty well liked by many. Not too long ago, I see many suggesting Guerlain Vetiver, but much lesser these days. Couple of months ago, I think NR was also pretty hot.

    Guerlain Vetiver is so overhyped its ridiculous. There are so many better and much more inexpensive vetivers.

    Scents that have had their 15 minutes of Basenotes fame (ie: were raved about for a period of time and everyone was interested, or are relatively unknown outside of BN but still get frequent mentions as 'best in category'):

    Terre d'Hermes (more like 15 hours of fame!)
    Black Aoud
    Rive Gauche
    Encre Noire
    Domenico Caraceni 1913 (remember the DC1913 madness?? )
    Ambre Precieux
    Ambre Sultan
    Musc Ravageur
    Jubilation XXV
    Live Jazz
    ...others? Help me remember, guys!

    I remembered when everyone was co-signing Iceberg Twice as the bargain bin favorite. What happened to that? I got a sample of it, dabbed it, and I hated that one.

    In my opinion, apart from TdH and Rive Gauche

    GIT, Mugler Cologne (up to a certain point), BDP seem to also belong to the frags getting much attention here on Basenotes

    Default Re: What is Basenotes' Acqua di Gio?

    AH yes, of course how could I forget GIT, Mugler or BdP.

    The most recent one, perhaps, is Creed's Windsor. I think that it's fame will be short lived though as it is essentially unobtainable now.

    Another perennial favorite is C&S No. 88, although it hasn't been talked about as much this last year for some reason - perhaps because of the reformulation.

    You missed L'Air du Désert on the 15 minutes of fame list! That's, ahem, an Unforgivable mistake.
    It is known that there are an infinite number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near nothing as makes no odds, so the average population of all the planets in the Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that the population of the whole Universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely products of a deranged imagination.

    L'Air du Desert Marocain was hugely popular when I first arrived here. Now, people don't talk about it half so much. As much as Basenoters like to think of ourselves as preservers of the classics, we're just as prone as the rest of the world is to going "Look! Shiny! Want!" And dropping our current obsession for something new as soon as it catches our fancy.

    TdH
    GIT
    Guerlain Vetiver
    Rive Gauche

    I would rate these 4 as the most talked about / debated / hated / loved / dissected on BN.

    Usually, wherever GIT is mentioned, Cool Water comes next (or is it before?).

    Grey Flannel has had its 15 minutes too as I recall...

    But nothing beats the classics from Guerlain or Chanel, I guess...

    So true, so true!
    BN hype is the main reason I bought LdDM, but I'm still glad I did. There is usually a fair amount of truth in hype.

    I don't go for hype, just for what I like. I have many good vetivers, and Gurelain's is very unique. I quite like it.

    When I joined D&G Pour Homme was all the rage, as was Égoïste and L'Instant de Guerlain pour Homme.

    M7 is mentioned with enough frequency that never is forgotten and is quite common in wardrobes i've viewed.

    Other scents everyone seems to have are:
    Guerlian Vetiver
    Guerlian Habit Rouge
    Rive Gauche pour Homme
    Dior Homme (original or flankers)

    i feel like in '04, Piper Nigrum, M7, Live Jazz, Santal Noble and the L'Artisans took over for a bit.

    now, it seems like we're all about the Rive Gauche!
