    Default Re: Best fragrance you have ever smelt?

    So far it is Guerlain Shalimar. Absolutely beautiful masterpiece of perfumery.

    Default Re: Best fragrance you have ever smelt?

    isn't that a woman's perfume? but I hear lots of men tend to wear it as well

    Default Re: Best fragrance you have ever smelt?

    It is too good to let the ladies have all the fun believe me, try the parfum.

  5. #5

    Default Re: Best fragrance you have ever smelt?

    M, of course.

    Default Re: Best fragrance you have ever smelt?

    Puredistance M - Just so luxurious. If you wear it, you will be Aston Martin.
    Bosque - It is not a parfum, but your intrinsic smell.
    Aventus - fresh, the best allrounder.

    Where does one start?

    But, the question asks for one...therefore, my beloved Vintage Paco Rabanne Pour Homme.

    I could list so many more.

    Cheers,

    “Some perfumes are as fragrant as an infant’s flesh, sweet as an oboe’s cry, and greener than the spring; While others are triumphant, decadent or rich; Having the expansion of infinite things, like ambergris and musk, benzoin and frankincense, which sing the transports of the mind and every sense.”

    I guess at the end of the day, I still need to say Aventus. Although the final phase of L'air du Desert Marocain, with that vanilla dry down, is pretty spectacular.

    I wouldn't say it's my all time favorite, but whenever I smell N°19 (especially after a phase of abstinence) I think it's kind of an uber-perfume – the meta-juice.

    Otherwise, I'd have to throw Creed GIT & Aventus, as well as LIDGE and Ambre 114 into the mix.

    Noir de Noir. It's extremely different from the butch frags I usually wear, and there's just something in the opening (grape? cognac? chocolate?) that hits me like a bullet to the brain whenever I spray it.

  46. #46

    Default Re: Best fragrance you have ever smelt?

    Post Scriptum: I said Hammam Bouquet is my favorite ever, and it is, but the second place is definitely PATOU POUR HOMME.
