    Hey Johnny, love this ongoing thread, and loved your last one too.
    If you try another Chanel, given your taste and requirements about sillage/projection, I would add Coromandel. Very unisex, almost leaning masculine to me, a powerbomb, and just plain great smelling. Drydown is a little on the sweet side, but you seem fine with that given your rankings.

    Hey, cello!

    Thank you for your words. Although I do not intend, at least for now, to test other Les Exclusives collection fragrances, it seems to be a good suggestion. Badarun also gave another good one, Bel Respiro. Taking note of all the suggestions!


    Stay tuned!

    Hello, guys!


    ---------->Creed Bois du Portugal

    Ok, retuning to one of my favourite houses. Once again, Creed shows his qualitity! First, this is, so far, the most masculine scent I´ve smelled from these packages. I think this is a mature man scent. Yes, I do get the old school vibe, but this fragrance is quite good. Some will say it´s outdated, others will say it´s tímeless. Now, would I were it? Yes, although it wouldn´t be my first choice to wear. I can see clearly my father (61 years old) pulling this off with pure class! And class is what I smell on this, also.

    On my skin the bergamot is prominent, which gives an incredible contribute for a great blend of high quality ingredients. Let´s talk about behavior: projection is good for about 3-4h and sillage is moderate. Longevity? 13 hours. Versatily? Hmmm, I say farly versatile, at least for me.

    A very good surprise by Creed! Really like it!


    Scent: 9.04
    Longevity: 9.15
    Sillage: 7.75
    Projection: 7.70
    Uniqueness: 7.30
    Versatiliy: 7.70
    Scent masculinity: 9.55
    ---Overall: 8.31

    Would I buy it? Yes!

    Hi, guys!

    -----------> Montale Chypre Fruite

    Ok, so far, the one I enjoyed the least from this house. The opening is too floral and the first two hours the scent is too feminine. However, after that, the it starts to be agreeable and the dry down is nice. This fragrance is also weaker than the Montales I tested before. Sillage is moderate and projection is weak (about 2h). Not the most unique scent, although fairly versatile. Also, this scent didn´t last as much as the other Montale (about 8h).

    Appropriate for women, hate not say. Definitely not for me!

    Scent: 7.30
    Longevity: 7.5
    Sillage: 7.75
    Projection: 7.15

    Trust me, Bel Respiro is one of the most "not-discussed" parfums - when we talk Chanel Exlusifs, all glory go to Coromandel / Sycomore / Bois des Iles & co.

    Bel Respiro (& 31 Rue Cambon) hardly gets discussed / praised...Even the Eau de Cologne from the Exslusifs that lasts just under 2 hours gets a much greater coverage (i too agree that it's the best edc i have smelt, but 200+ for 2 hrs is a joke)...

    Hello, guys.

    Today´s fragrance: Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier Ambrè Precieux


    ------------>Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier Ambrè Precieux

    Putting it simple: this fragrance is good! A bit soapy (not too much), but a great scent. I do think, however, this is not a “modern” scent, not really sure why. I would not use this going out or in a date. IT´s a safe scent, I believe. Although considered as unisex, I think it leans toward the masculine side.

    Projection is, in my opinion the major problem of this fragrance. About 2 hours and after that it turned to be a close to the skin scent. Sillage is between soft to moderate. Finally, I got about 8-9h.

    Scent: 9.13
    Longevity: 8.25
    Sillage: 7.5
    Projection: 6.25
    Uniqueness: 8
    Versatiliy: 7.75
    Scent masculinity: 7.75
    --- Overall: 7.81

    Would I buy it? Maybe.

    Hello, guys!


    ------------->Comme des Garcons Original


    The first fragrance of CdC, this one, is a spice (cinammon) bomb. Although you can detect a smokey part (incense) and honey, it´s just too much cinammon. Well, at least on my skin. Can´t say I LOVE this, although I find it an agreeable scent. The opening is strong! Sillage is great, but projection isn´t. Merely 3h. It does project quite well, but after those 3 h, so long projection. Longevity was about 13h. I´d say it´s fairly unisex and versatile.


    Scent: 7.75
    Longevity: 9.10
    Sillage: 8.5
    Projection: 7.45

    As tastes differ I sampled almost all of the above and I found the following to be the best:

    Hi, guys!



    ----------> Diptyque Eau Duelle


    First from Diptyque, and a real good one! This fragance is really good and let me tell you, quite strong and long lasting for Eau de Toillete. I expected something weaker, honestly. But since I love long lasting “mild-intense” fragrances, I really like this one. Although with vanilla, I do not consider it too feminine but I can´t also say its really masculine. So, sillage is very good, as projection (about 4h). Longevity was about 14h. Overall, a very good fragrance!


    Scent: 9.12
    Longevity: 9
    Sillage: 8.35

    With Pure Distance M coming up after Wonderwood, I would love to see if a similar testing can be done with vintage Bel Ami - preferably a side by side comparison. I own vintage Bel Ami & the M also & I can't help but feel that M is a total copy (I'm a terrible nose, but I could see it)...and the vintage can still be bought cheaper than M. Only 1 huge plus for M which is it's longevity, almost twice or more than Bel Ami.

    & yes, Eau Duelle is excellent, it's one Diptique that I own that has good longevity.

    Interested to see your take on Reflection, aomassai, Ore & Carnal Flower in particular from your "to be" sampled list...

    Well, I don´t know Bel Ami, sorry! I´m looking forward to test M, indeed, judging for its reviews.

    Reflection is unlike any Amouage - extremely safe, mild & a grt grt office parfum.

    Hi!


    ----------->Comme des Garcon Wonderwood


    Well, this a truly a masculine scent. That good! However, it´s very very smooth and definitelty close to the skin. Scent? Very interesting, in my opinion, although quite linear and not that unique (at least on my skin). Non-intrusive, it´s clearly one of the safest scents to wear. One thing I found to be intriguing was the fact of this fragrance to be almost unnoticeable in the first 10 min!!! I could only smell it when my nose was literally touching my skin. After that, strange, projection “came out” and was good for about 2-3h. Sillage is soft to moderate, and longevity was about 10-11h. I do consider this to be a versatile fragrance, as you could wear it in several ocasions. No THE best for every, but acceptable in serveral.

    Hi, guys!


    ---------------> Puredistance M
    (Parfum extrait)

    Another great fragrance! Unisex? I feel it leans towards the masculine side. Longevity was really great (about 16h) and sillage was also good. Projection was about the usual 3-4h. However, I do think this isn´t the most versatile fragrance. The opening is awesome but the drydown, in spite of being really good, it´s not as good.

    Scent: 8.85
    Longevity: 9.25
    Sillage: 8.5
    Projection: 8
    Uniqueness: 8.25
    Versatiliy: 7.75

    ---Overall: 8.32

    Hi, guys!

    Time for the last Frapin´s fragrance of this package:


    ------------->Frapin 1270
    (EDP)

    Last fragrance from Frapin regarding this pack. Man, the opening is so good! In fact, the scent is very, very good until drydown, which, in my opinion, altough beeing quite nice, is kind of feminine. Some say this is for older man?! Honestly, I can´t see why…! The main problem of this fragrance is sillage and projection. I got about 2-3 h and a close to the skin scent, overall. It´s rich and you smell quality! Longevity was about 9h. I do, however, think that this is not the most manly scent. Unisex.


    Scent: 9.27
    Longevity: 8
    Sillage: 7.25
    Projection: 7
    Uniqueness: 8.25
    Versatiliy: 8
    Scent masculinity: 7.5
    ---Overall: 7.94

    Would I buy it? YES!!

    Hey Johnny, was that Wonderwood or 2 Man that you sampled recently? I see you have 2 Man in your overall ranking list, but the title of your review says Wonderwood.

    Hello, guys!


    ---------------> Commes des Garcon 2 (EDP)

    Ok, second fragance of CdC! Feminine opening, here. In fact, overall the fragrance is clearly toward the feminine side. The scent is quite good, although on my skin it doesn´t smell as good o on paper. Although having a slightly better longevity (13h) and sillage than Wonderwood, CdC seems, so far, to have close to the skin scents. Projection was a bit timid during 2,5 - 3 h. And this one is shaper than Wonderwood! The ink note is interesting.

    I must state that, in spite of not loooving the scent on my skin, I´d love to smell this on a woman! ; )


    Scent: 8.45
    Longevity: 9.25
    Sillage: 7.35
    Projection: 7.25
    Uniqueness: 8.5
    Versatiliy: 8

    Ok, guys, time for one fragrance I was really eager to test:


    ------------> Parfume Generale Aomassai (EDT)


    I have good news and bad news. Let me start for the bad ones: projection and sillage. This fragrance projects nicely for a max of 2 to 2 and half hour. Sillage is somewhere between soft and moderate. Good news: Longevity is good – about 10h. Scent? Great!!! I see this it being versatile and toward masculine side, really (at least on my skin it is, quite, to be honest). Really love this scent! What a great gourmand! The caramel and hazelnut are great, here. Strangely, I can´t find much incense...! Maybe it´s my nose (or skin...).

    But the scent is very, very good!!! Really! And quite unique! I wish it was stronger…! It´s a shame.


    Scent: 9.23
    Longevity: 8.40
    Sillage: 7.5
    Projection: 7
    Uniqueness: 8.45
    Versatiliy: 8
    Scent masculinity: 8.15
    ---Overall: 8.10

    Would I buy it? YES!!

    Another person with a disregard for Ambre Narguille...I kind of agree with all the rankings except for Ambre Narguille; I'd switch Ambre Preciaux to that spot on my list

    While I don't have the intense disdain for AN that you and deadidol seem to possess, it's kind of a one trick pony to me and the trick gets old fast.

    I would definitely move Ambre Precieux up that list!

    Hey, guys!

    Lol, some AN haters, here! This thread would always please some and displease others, regarding some fragrances. One thing that maybe it´s not too clear is that this is an OVERALL raking, not a SCENT raking.

    For example, Ambré Preciaux, Amomassai, Wonderwood, Eau Duelle and 1270 (all of them below the top 5, some even below top 10), had a rating above 9, regarding scent! More specifically:

    1270 - 9.27
    Amomassai - 9.23
    Ambré Preciaux - 9.13
    Eau Duelle - 9.12
    Wonderwood. 9.02


    I do prefer these fragrances to others that had better OVERALL rating. The question here is that there are several parameters to acess. The "big 3", Longevity, Sillage and Projection, most of the times, make the difference to put a fragrance below or above others.


    I will do, like the previous group tested, several rakings and considerations, once I finish testing them.


    Take care!

    Not disdain per se for AN, but i feel it's not FB worthy - compared to Ambre Preciaux, Ambre 114, or for that matter even compared to Montale Blue amber, which I own...

    I know, buddy! But what I wrote it´s true. When I see guys I really appreciate seeing in their Youtube chanels, saying they prefer Interlude, and rank it as the best Amouage fragrance, I can´t understand why! Plus, I think to myself: how can they say that Interlude is best than Chergui?

    But like other things in life, to each his own!

    Hey, guys!



    ------------>Commes des Garcon Man 2 (EDT)


    First I must say this was one of a group of scents that I was not that eager to test. Why? Because of the incense. However, I decided to give it a chance. And I´m glad! This is a real man´s scent! Like I said, I´m not a fan of incense fragrances, but I have to say that this fragrance is unique and great. I love it! Maybe it´s my nose, but I don´t see it as very natural, as I find it a bit synthetic. But I really love it. The only problem I think this fragrance has is the fact of being a bit weak in terms of projection. Sillage is average, though. Longevity was about 10-11h, which I consider good. It is, in my opinion, versatile and modern. Overall, and against what I expected, this is very, very good. Great woody fragrance. I got the vetiver and leather, clearly and of course, incense. But, the funny part is that I find it tolerable! Certainly a fragrance to take in account from now on.


    Scent: 9.31
    Longevity: 8.65
    Sillage: 7.65
    Projection: 7
    Uniqueness: 8
    Versatiliy: 8
    Scent masculinity: 9.5
    ---Overall: 8.29

    Would I buy it? YES!!

    Time for one of the fragrance I was REALLY eager to test!



    -------------> Amouage Reflection Man (EDP)

    Man! This is, overall, an awesome scent! There´s something soapy about it, which is something I usually don´t like, but, WOW, this is pure class and quality! A very clean scent, which is something I also tend no to like. But I love this! Projection and sillage are good, but not heavy on my skin. I must say I was hoping for a bigger longevity (got about 13-14h). One of the most versatile fragrance I know. I read some reviews saying that this was similar to Le Male. My friends, I really love Le Male, honestly, but Reflection is, in my opinion, incomparably better! My favourite scent form this package, so far! Not very masculine, though.

    Scent: 9.70
    Longevity: 9.20
    Sillage: 8.15
    Projection: 8
    Uniqueness: 8.60
    Versatiliy: 9.40

    Was somehow thinking Reflection might end up on your top 3 or 5, glad to see that as the # 1 so far...Under-rated amouage imho, but I find it quite sophisticated...

    Agreed, my friend. Personally I don´t see it as feminine fragrance. Some say it´s for young girl. While I agree it´s not the most masculine scent, it´s masculine enough.

    Merry CHRISTmas to all!



    Next Diptyque fragrance:



    ------------->Diptyque Volutes (EDP)


    Overall, Volutes is quite good! I got about 15h of longevity! I do find, however, this fragrance could be stronger.Projection was nice for the first 3-4h. After that it started fading. Sillage, however is good. At first I though it was too much powdery for my taste, but in the end I came to think it´s not that bad. Although different, I get a bit of "Back to Black" vibe, although I think the latter´s quality is superior. Must say I love Volutes! Good surprise, here.


    Scent: 9.24
    Longevity: 9.35
    Sillage: 8
    Projection: 7.70
    Uniqueness: 7.65
    Versatiliy: 7.8
    Scent masculinity: 7.70
    --- Overall: 8.20

    Would I buy it? YES!!


    Next fragrance: Comme de Garcons Black
