    Default Would you pick up any of these.....?

    So, I've done some digging around in my local area over the last couple of weeks and this is what I've found for sale: (prices are approx. converted from my local currency into US$)

    Gucci Envy for Men 50ml (45ml left) $25

    Encre Noire EDT 50ml (45ml left) $20

    Aramis Cool (not Cool Blend) 100ml (new) $35

    vintage Eau de Rochas Homme 50ml (45ml left) $30

    vintage Eau Sauvage aftershave 100ml (new) $15

    vintage Hermes Amazone Eau de Parfum 30ml (new) $20


    I own a big bottle of Encre Noire already, so I don't think I'll be getting that one. I can't really remember what Gucci Envy for Men smells like other than it had ginger in it (it has been years since I tried it), but seeing as it's continued now, I thought it might make good swap bait if I didn't want to keep it.

    I've previously owned vintage Eau de Rochas Homme and vintage Eau Sauvage Aftershave and really liked both, so I'm pretty much sold on those two already.

    I've never tried Aramis Cool or Hermes Amazone.


    Would you be tempted to pick any of these up if you were me? Any thoughts on the two I haven't tried?


    Thanks in advance.

    Since you already own Encre Noir, I agree that Gucci Envy is a good way to go, especially as it has been discontinued.
    Current Top Favorites:
    1) Portrait of a Lady (EdP Frédéric Malle)
    2) Giorgio for Men vintage (Giorgio Beverly Hills)
    3) Dia Man vintage edt (Amouage)
    4) Les Nombres d'Or Vetyver (Mona di Orio) - tie
    4) Lalfeorosa (O'driù) - tie

    6) Anat Fritz Original Formula and Classical (Anat Fritz)
    7) Captain vintage (Molyneux)
    8) Tzora (Anat Fritz)

    Definitely get the Envy but you could probably resell the rest at a profit as these prices are pretty good.

    Vintage Eau Sauvage, Envy (extra points if also a vintage version), as well as possibly Encre Noire and Eau de Rochas

    Absolutely pick up Envy! If it's not up to your taste you will be able to get what you paid for it.

    Say what?? There's no way it's worth that price. Well, not to me anyway.

    Anyone tried Aramis Cool? I've tried Aramis Cool Blend, and thought it was just okay. Not sure how similar they are though.

    I have not tried Aramis Cool, but I see it going for that price at alot of discounters, so I don't think I personally would risk the blind buy. I am just not too impressed with the modern day Aramis stuff ( sorry to whine, I like alot of contemporary fragrances usually).

    As far as the Envy, its hard for me to tell if that is vintage. I have a decant of the latest, which is a yellowish green. Apparently the old is just green. I really don't think there is too much left of the older vintage stuff. And yeah, I find it bizzare the price Envy for Men is going. Its not even the older vintage bottles that are going for those high rates either !
    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.

    More HERE
    Please PM me !
