    Default Hey peoples....any designer fragrance hype at the moment?

    I was wondering, what are the designer fragrances getting the most hype at the moment. Both in your location and on basenotes?

    Dior Homme Intense. L'Instant De Guerlain appears to have dropped off the pace somewhat of late..
    Though away from Basenotes I would suggest Paco Rabanne's One Million still seems to be very popular and very hyped.

    Oh please.


    To the OP, Prada Luna di Rossi seems to be getting some hype and positive reviews.

    And I'm pretty hyped for the new Hermes "Eau de Mandarine Ambree" and "Eau de Narcisse Bleu." And now that I think about it, they should be released any day now, if they haven't been released already this week.

    quite right.
    but here in my town, One Million, Bleu de Chanel and Encre Noir are very popular with men and Versace Crystal Noir and Lady Million with ladies.
    My all time favorite:

    Dior Fahrenheit

    Platinum Egoiste - I don't go into the stores very often, but when I do, this gets pushed in my direction.


    What is hype other than an accumulation of positive feedback? If you don't like hype, what are you doing on Basenotes? You are either reading it or writing it.


    Listen to hype. It can point you in the right direction sometimes and save you some time. Just don't ignore everything else. Look into the obscure things also.

    Trust your nose, yes, but sometimes it's the hype that gets your nose to the right place.

    Quite. But for the hype I would have dismissed and ignored Shock for Him, a yummy and FBW scent.

    I can't help it! I'm like a leaf trapped in the wind of hype. Unable to follow my own nose, I belong to the slave morality.

    I totally agree with this. One of the funny things about the online community is how hypes come and go. None of that stuff matters. Trust your nose. Find scents you love and you'll always be glad when you wear them.

    I wear two of the fragrances listed here (Edition Blanche and Encre Noir)
    Can't say I've ever smelled either on anyone else. Love both.

    Honestly, hype will.probably get you a crowd pleasers no problem. I promise you though that you will end up spending alot of money because you will not be truly satisfied unless you sniff and sample houses/notes on your own to discover what you like and what works on your skin. That being said, 1 million, spicebomb, La nuit de l'homme and DHI are all really popular designer frags.
