    Default Which Parfums de Marly fragracne would you buy?

    I tried Pegasus from a sample I received and it's quite pleasant: power and almond but not too feminine. What are the others like?

    I have and love Lippizan. It is actually one of my favourite frags in my collection. Godolphin is also very nice. With its cumin, jasmine and vanilla, Pegasus is looking quite interesting and i may just snag it soon.
    ointments and perfume delight the heart....

    Herod is wonderful stuff as are all the other 6 in the line, and that's why I own the entire line.

    Such a hard question to answer as I think Herod, Godolphin, Oajan, Pegasus, Habdan, Galloway, Layton, and Darley are all really nice which is why I own them!!

    Herod is tempting.

    I like Godolphin a lot, but it's not my style so it's not a buy for me.

    With the rest, Parfums De Marly tend to be too heavy handed with the chemicals, especially in their bases. They overuse chemicals to create fake woods that end up smelling harsh and overtly chemical rather than natural. I love how Pegasus smells in the air, but up close, and especially after the wonderful opening fades, you're left with smell of harsh chemicals. At Parfums De Marly prices, there's no excuse for that. It's a shame too, because if their bases smelled more natural, or at least less harsh, I'd probably be a huge fan. But nope. So, nope.

    I own Herod and Byerley.
    Really dig Byerley, a dry woody vetiver with semi sweet resins running through it.
    Not shocked its not talked about much. Its unique, smells more than decent, lasts a long time.
    A worthy addition the vetiver genre. Worth trying. Skip Herod if you're looking for tobacco, it aint there.

    Just not Herod. Unless you want to be perceived as a vanilla cookie smelling guy. Man up and get Layton at least.

    Another vote for Godolphin, one of my cold weather favourites.

    I would consider buying Layton.

    I've read it smells like a high quality version of Boss Bottled, one of my favorites.

    Oajan is great for announcing your presence in the pub on a cold winter night. I can almost hear the lips pursing of the more conservative sprayers on here!

    I've owned several but I currently own only one--Layton.

    I would buy Layton or Oajan. They're both great.

    Yes. I think it's good, just not for me. It also doesn't help that my wife can't stand it and let's me know how she feels whenever I wear it.

    I vote Herod.

    That I can tell from frequent trips to Scent Bar, Herod seems to be the best seller among the Marly's.

    I own Herod and Layton and just got a bigger bottle of Layton. The opening smells a bit designer however it dries down and evolves beautifully. Layton also gets alot of compliments, it leaves a scent trail behind you as you move and projects well. The best part is it lasts around 12-15 hours off of only 3-4 sprays which is already alot of sprays as it is real strong.

    Godolphin is nice but a clone of Tom Ford Tuscan Leather. ( I hate when companies clone other companies popular scents)

    I actually like Galloway the best. I like it just a little better than GIT, which is what it reminds me of. Herod is a close second with Layton rounding out the top 3.

    Habdan is my favourite.
    Move on. It is just a chapter in the past, but don't close the book, just turn the page.
