Thread: Potent frags

  1. #1

    Default Potent frags

    I am wanting to try out some of the more robust frags, so I bought a decant of Tom Ford Wild orchid, awful stuff, dont know why this is so popular, so now I have ordered a bottle of Michael for Men from StrawberryNet, they are selling a 75ml bottle very cheap inc p&p only £22.00 with free gift,

    Anyway this is a blind purchase,worth a punt for the price, hope it smells better than TF, I do like the more robust frags,eg Opium edp, now that is a classic, also Guerlain Linstant de Guerlain Pour Homme Eau Extreme, my current fave, any other frags which I might like, in a similar vein?

    Fahrenheit is a classic potent frag worth checking out.

    I will give that a go, is this another frag that has been watered down over the years? or does it last 6-8 hrs?

    It lasts ten hours plus on me and projects strongly

    If you pop into boots you can try one of their testers.

    Good Man, never thought of that, looks like there is a choice, ie, ABSOLUTE INTENSE, Whats that then?

    Their are a lot of spin off frags sharing the Fahrenheit name like Absolute Intense but imo the original is the best. But hey try them all out and see which you like or dislike as its the only way to calibrate your own taste.

    Its been reformulated. I'm not sure about the staying power.

    Thanks for that info, just ordered a 100ml bottle of Bogart pour Homme edt for £16 cannot go wrong for that price even if it is a blind purchase, I hope it`s as good as the reviews say it is...............

    Other suggestions may include: Eau Sauvage Extreme, Versace l'Homme, Boucheron pour Homme EDP, Habit Rouge EDP, YSL pour Homme Haute Concentration, Chanel pour Monsieur Concentree.

    Have fun testing these scents because, though I like most or all of them fondly (maybe only with the exception of Eau Sauvage Extreme), alone their strength/longevity/projection tend to polarize heavily and trigger reactions of almost instant love or hate, but if they work on you and testing leads to a favorable result, testing is simply the best way to find out.

    +1 for Lapidus PH and Bogart PH; you can get them for less than $20 each.
