    If you like Allure Homme Sport you should love Allure Homme.
    If you like Cool Water you'll probably love Green Irish Tweed
    I'd wear any of your frags, even Allure Homme Sport, Spicebomb, Very Sexy and Boss Bottled occasionally.
    Although I'd draw the line at Cool Water, if I'm honest.

    L'eau d'Issey Summer Edition
    Pure Malt
    and to really branch out Encre Noire

    Gucci Pour Homme I

    You may also want to consider adding a Vetiver.. like Givenchy Vetyver, or Versace Black Jeans
    Encre Noire is also nice but that's more risky. I personally do not like it on me.

    I would say Chanel Egoiste would look quite well in your collection. From your collection i have 7/8

    was thinking about D&G pour homme, l'homme, or roadster/roadster sport/ or declaration? thoughts on those...

  15. #15

    Default Re: Rate my wardrobe and recommendations!

    l'homme - one of my favorites
    declaration - gets a lot of compliments
    roadster sport - tried it but didn't find it anything special

    Default Re: Rate my wardrobe and recommendations!

    what about roadster vs declaration?
    They're different in that I would wear roadster sport in the summer/spring and declaration in the fall/winter. I would say that I think Declaration is an 'original' fragrance that I don't find too others being similar to, while roadster sport had a familiar scent, at least to me.

    I can't rate your recommendations because you didn't present any.

    Nice collection.

    I'd add D&G pour homme, A Lab on Fire L'Anonym, and Fahrenheit to it.

    Wanted to get Acqua di Parma or Frederic Malle...what do you guys recommend and find to be the better scent and house?

  20. #20

    Default Re: Rate my wardrobe and recommendations!

    Subjective! I like one or two Aqua Di Parmas, just as I like one or two FM's.

    They are both very different, check them out.

    Aquas more traditional mediteranean grooming scents, quite classical, FM imo is more niche/unique, striving to be different and edgey.

    If you appreciate lots of things you really shouldnt narrow yourself to one or the other unless you have smelt some of both.

    P.S, i didnt quite answer your question. I am very fond of the original ADP Colonia, its a real quality cologne imo, maybe a bit to subtle and powdery for some mens tastes though, but the newer versions tend to take the same theme into a more woody, spicy, darker, Autumn/winter direction. Im not fond of the mediteranean scents, there quite sweet/aquatic/fruity, and not to my own personal tastes, but im sure they have something for everyone.

    You need a nice, masculine "powerhouse" frag, bro. But only if you're man enough, of course.
    Look into VanCleef & Arpels PH, Quorum, or maybe Bogart PH

    Perfect! ADP Colonia is one of those funny ones imo that despite being around since 1915 or whenever it was, it still smells great today. There is nothing fussy about it whatsoever, its just one of the ultimate clean cut, fresh, well groomed scents that hasnt dated, and at your age you can educate everyone around you with what impeccable taste you have without smelling like a stinky old man or someone from the Dallas/Dynasty powerdressing era.

    Find a sample and see what you think, and if you find its a little to fresh and light for you, then look into the Assoluta or Essenzia spin offs, you will find one you love that suits you guaranteed.

    My thoughts exactly. Throw Maison Francis Kurkdjian's Absolue Poir le Soir to that list and you'd have a pretty solid trio to round out your collection.

    Of what I've smelled;

    D&G - Pour Homme -Vintage is quite good. Current formulation is an absolute disaster.
    Creed - GIT Shares a lot with Cool Water, but more rounded/better materials/better smelling. Classic, but not that exciting IMO.
    Creed - Avetus Hyped out of control in the fragcom but, has a solid base, and gets compliments. Bad quality control. Good but not great. Worth buying, but only at a discount IMHO.
    PR - 1 Million The definition of a loud, gaudy attention seeker. Offensive to all five senses.
    Cartier - Roadster and Declaration Only smelled these once, and neither struck me, but they both have their fans
    Issey - Eh.

    Never smelled 212 or Drifter.

    whats are your thoughts on the following...ppl that have these plz opinions

    D&G pour homme (current formulation) 4 out of 10
    Creed-GIT 8 out of 10
    Aventus 5 out of 10
    1Million 3 out of 10
    Cartier-roadster 4 or 5 out of 10
    Declaration 4 out of 10 (I can't get past the high level of cumin/cardamom in this one that comes off as BO on me)
    prada amber 5 out of 10
    issey 1 out of 10
    212 3 to 4 out of 10
    [/QUOTE]
    I don't own any of these except GIT (though I did own 212 before giving it away), but of those I have sampled on skin I have put my ratings beside each one... Needless to say I am not a fan of most, and those "old smelly man scents" you dismissed earlier smell better than all of them IMO (with the possible exception of GIT which I love).
    Current Top Favorites:
    1) Portrait of a Lady original formula (EdP Frédéric Malle)
    2) Giorgio for Men vintage/V.I.P. for Men (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)

    Well... with a comment like that, you're definitely not ready for true masculine scents.

    You could try Dior Homme Intense and either Allure Homme or AHS Eau Extreme. Not a bad collection at all though.

    Hmm. I'd recommend you go to Macy's and ask the SA what their best seller is. That should please you.

    some classics in there. Try Sel de Vetiver and Allure Blanche
    Some good niche frags to round out your collection would be good. Just to see different quality.
    Check out Montale's older offerings.
