    Default New Fragrance: Ed Hardy Skulls & Roses

    From nstperfume.com:

    Ed Hardy will launch Skulls & Roses, a new fragrance duo inspired by Hardy’s skull & rose tattoo design, in September.

    Skulls & Roses for Her ~ a “warm and sugary” scent with strawberry, violet leaves, honeysuckle and caramel.

    Skulls & Roses for Him ~ a “fresh, ozonic” scent with bergamot, cardamom, lavandin, moss and musk.

    The fragrances were developed by perfumers Marypierre Julien and Adriana Medina.

    This works well for me. I try to avoid stuck-up/arrogant/over confident jerks and d-bags in public. I usually use my sense of sight to stay away. I don't want to be near those greased up bar stars. But NOW, I can use my sense of smell. Whats that I smell ? Is it overapplied, ozonic, fruity and disgusting all at once ?? Must be a d-bag comming within my range....

    On a side note, what is with the infatuation with skulls and the fragrance fashion world ? Kokorico, Police, and now this ? I have to admit, I sorta like the rose in the mouth ( but I like rose in all forms anyways).
    Seeking: Bottles/decants : of Feeling Man, Gucci pour Homme, Essence of John Galliano, Nicole Miller (vintage), Opium pour Homme, Oxford & Cambridge...etc.

    Seeking decant/sample of Jil Sander Feeling Man, Cacharel Nemo, Bijan for Men EDC, Lanvin for Men, Giorgio VIP, Il Lancetti and other old school frags ....etc. I have samples to swap.

    Man, I thought Ed Hardy's last pair of bottles were awful, but these certainly take the cake! Wow...Why would I ever want a skull (in any color) as a perfume bottle to sit on my dresser? Just seems quite stupid. I can't even begin to fathom what the marketing team was thinking with this one. And yet it will probably sell like wild fire. Facepalm indeed!

    I would be very reluctant to try this, based on a recent experience with Villain.

    It smelled decent enough on paper when I tried it at Ulta, so I sprayed some on my forearm. I couldn't distinguish one note from another, just vile, sweet, synethic wood. AND it defied soap and water.

    I guess I just don't have an appreciation for the fragrances from this house.

    I have not been a huge fan of this house but there are a couple that are OK... Call me silly, but I will reserve judgment on the quality of these fragrances until I smell them and no prejudge based on the bottle designed by a famous tattoo artist! After all, if people judged Muglers scents based on his clothes designs for men he would never sell one bottle.

    My Favorites

    1. Amouage Epic man
    2. Dior Leather Oud
    3. Perris Monte Carlo Oud Imperial Black
    4. Le Labo Patchouli 24
    5. Amouage Opus VII
    6. Byredo Bullion
    7. Norma Kamali Incense

    I found a bottle of Andy Hardy scented hand sanitizer on a Target clearance shelf a few years ago and bought it because it was in a pump bottle, 90% off and my dad and son had the flu. I remember thinking at the time that it must be sad for an artist to find his work end up there and how I'd never before seen over-proliferation of a brand occur at such a gallop. The then-trendy Hardy art was on purses, shirts, sheets, day planners, and toothbrushes, and not just at Target. Hardy was everywhere and on everything.

    The sanitizer wasn't even usable because the scent was as garish, loud, and tiresome as his art, imo. It clung viciously to my skin. I figured I'd rather have the flu and tossed it. I hope this new scent is a little better.

    For an unnecessary release, like this, at least they make it easy to poke fun at them, right?

    I cannot for the life of me figure out how you are going to spray these bottles? Are we sure that in fact those are the bottles??

    I may have to own one just for the tackiness. It will round out my collection in a way that no other bottle can!

    I actually liked the men's Villain - which was by Adriana Medina. She's pretty talented. But those bottles! So bad. SO horribly, horribly, horribly bad.



    Alas, poor Classic! I knew it, Floratio; a fragrance of infinite depth, of most excellent fancy; it hath borne me on its wings a thousand times; and now, how abhorred in my inspiration it is! My gorge rises at it. Here hung those notes that I have sniffed I know not how oft. Where be your chypres now?

    I think the idea of a skull bottle would work well if it were glass, the liquid red, and if it had a stopper on it like V&R's Antidote, only it were a melted candle. That would rock the cazbah.

    This arrived today... that's about the best I can say about it... The bottle is, uhm, unique and I think it will do well for the Halloween kitsch crowd. The juice is probably the worst offering from EH. It was uninspired, boring and fleeting - even more so than most other EH releases.

    I only was able to try 3 sprays of it since we don't have an actual tester yet but I don't expect it to improve on subsequent wearings. Even the bottle housing was very cheap and "plasticy" as I was pulling the top off of the skull I kind of expected some children's green slime to come out of the top or some other juvenile toy or candy. Sadly, I think either the toy or candy would have a more interesting scent.

    I don't think you will be seeing them much longer. This brand has plummeted in quality and vision in the last 2 years (not that there was much of either). The frags were never ground breaking or essential to anyone's wardrobe, but what they did do well was appeal to a specific market with a product that was not difficult to understand and was recognizable. Then they just started cloning themselves thinking the party would last.

    I have no idea why Arden would buy them out, but since that happened after this latest frag was released maybe EA Frags will do something to save the brand.

    There was a time where EH and TR were fantastic about gifts and samples, in fact at my store we relied on those samples to help make sales and keep ppl happy since we didn't have many if any other samples to give. Now, the samples from EH and TR have dried up, my stock is very low and the new sets they came out with have mistakes on the box and the new product is just plain cheap.

    I must stop now, I have wasted too many brain cells on this company, I am starting to lose respect for myself...

    The only Ed Hardy scent I've cared for so far is Born Wild. While lacking in longevity/projection, it's actually a really nice fall scent that is kind of reminiscent of 1 Million or Black XS.
