Thread: dark warm cheap frag
hi all i am looking for a cheaper dark warm frag... any suggestions please...
I have been using Burberry london and i really like it ... but i want something cheaper
How is Halston Z-14 in comparison to London ? if anyone of you have tried both.
You can get 30ml of Burberry London for £13 from Cheap Smells. If you are looking at dirt cheap you could get Quorum which is dark and warm as they come for just under £8. Have not tried the Halston.
I looked at Quorum but wasnt sure about it as never heard about it
Z-14 is superb. It has a very nice dark cinnamon vibe to it. I agree it would be a good fit for what you are looking for.
Oh, and as for Burberry London versus Z-14... I own and like both of them about equally. If I *had* to choose, I probably would pick Z-14 as I find it a bit more versatile than London.

My top 5: Sea Mist; Minnow; Crab, tiger, and almonds; Semprini; Rancid Polecat N° 2
I'd go with Perry Ellis 360 Black, Guess by Marciano or Halston Z-14. I'd say 360 Black is more of a comforting exotic smell for a night out. I've had a woman rub her face on my arm just to get cozy with it. I see Guess by Marciano as any anytime scent. It's definitely dark and warm. Z-14 has a little bit of everything in it, but I see it is more of a slightly rugged scent with just enough of a hint of softness. I own Quorum too, but I don't consider it dark or warm. Quorum is citrusy early on, then green and rugged.
All of these can be purchased for around $20 shipped on Ebay, for the big bottle size.

These are all great suggestions, and I would add Corduroy by Zirh.
Try Davidoff Zino...one of my top 5 scents.
It can be found now online under 25$ for 75ml. You'll thank me if it's for yourself (and you'll have the patience to survive top notes) and others will thank you if will be a gift. Good luck!.

Get yourself down to Marks and Spencer and sample the Autograph Intense. £15 for 100ml! It does not smell cheap though. This blurb is quite accurate:
'A glorious, sensual fragrance with top notes of mandarin and red apple leading to a heart of violet, offset by a leather accord and a hint of whiskey. The base is a blend of amber notes, enhanced with oakwood, vanilla, labdanum and intense musks.'
It is very similar to Boss Bottled, which you may know.
He boiled for our sins.
What does "dark" even mean in fragrance? So vague.
That said, Zirh Ikon is the best cheap fragrance I know of. Dry spices and patchouli.
