Thread: Aramis Gentleman's Collection
Just curious as to which scent out of the bunch is everyone's favorite?
Tuscany has been my favorite for about 20 years now and I have picked up Havana which I have been holding off wearing until the colder weather. So I ask you... which is another must have from this collection? Thanks.
but you've got to like cinnamon.
I think they're all worth trying. I thought New West was quite interesting...

Not tried all of them, but I'll put myself in the minority by going for Devin. I first wore it 30 years ago and it's still a staple of my wardrobe.
Life's a bitch. If it were a slut it'd be easy.
ointments and perfume delight the heart....
I agree that the whole line is really strong. Aramis is another fave and frequent go-to of mine, although my very favorite is Tuscany.

I love them all, with New West probably being my least favorite of the bunch. I got a nice compliment on JHL today! My initial favorites were 900 and Devin but JHL and Tuscany have really grown on me. I've said this on another thread already, but at $48/100ml, I'd really encourage anybody on basenotes to scoop them all up. The release of this series at this price is the best gift the perfume industry has given men in years.
Thank you so much for your input gents. Looks like I'll be trying these out. JHL looks like the winner here.
Tuscany and the original aramis are both nice.
i think that the recent jhl, 900 and new west are all great, but have very similar base- especially 900 and new west. just few ingredients make some difference. am i not nose-experienced enough, or do you all have the same feeling?
the recent aramis is phantastic, but i wish it were more potent.
the recent tuscany is similar to azzaro but better balanced. i wonder how that tuscany forte was like - ... probably something exceptional.
devin is at the moment my least favourite - dreamy opening, but than dies out in no time on me. maybe i should try it in colder weather.
All of them are great, as far as I'm concerned.
JHL is the best of the bunch, and as an oriental gourmand it's still quite modern. I find it a bit rich for everyday use though.
900 is the wildcard, different from just about anything else on the market. It has this nasty rotting-fruit opening, but quickly dries down into this intriguing blend of earth, grass and wildflowers.
Tuscany by far!
All of them are good yes.
Probably JHL, but I love all of them.
I really wish they would have put Tuscany Forte back into this lineup. I used to wear that one a lot back in the 90s. That was a really good fragrance.
I just made quite a score off ebay. I bought half-full bottles of both JHL and Devin in the new GC packaging for a grand total of $31 including shipping. From what I've read here, I will not regret it.
Aramis 900 is a work of genius. Devin is also very nice, similar to Yatagan but less food-like and more perfume-like.
My son likes Tuscany. I, on the other hand, am not a fan of any in the line.
