    Is ARAMIS really that bad? I'm planning on getting a 4 oz vintage in a couple of hours. Just 8 US dollars, converted.

    That bad even with very judicious application? As in a couple of dabs here and there? Unfixable?

    I am surprised no one mentioned Drakkar Noir so far.

    I believe that it's because it's not the sillage/projection monster that it was in its hey days...don't get me wrong it still a great scent but not what it was in the original formulation in the 80's.....

    Musk Gazelle by Ajmal. It is not bitter but it fulfills the others. Caution: Wear it to the zoo before you wear it in the wild.

    Agree that Musk Gazelle would be a great one to start with.

    lol looks like it. My bottle is fairly old and from Ebay, I can't be entirely sure if this has enhanced the meatiness of the top notes. It's somewhat hard to imagine that this was a teenage hit once. Drydown is nice though.

    One of my dogs just mangled an entire brand new sample of LM Parfums Black Oud - the Hard Leather sample escaped & might also be worth a try!

    This struck me funny. Polo Green was introduced to my husband by a cute SA years ago. He liked it and now it's all he wears, pretty much. Sometimes he wears Etro Sandalo. ​But the main thing I noticed about the Polo was the patchouli opening. It has changed recently and isn't as mellow as it was to begin with, but I think you need to try a newer sample. It's not that bad!

    I think you need to lay on the Czech and Speake Cuba, with that especially brutal strong civet note.

    Well it meets two of the three criteria (revolts and scares.) Not sure about attracts, if someone has anosmia to civet, it's a nice tobacco-rum scent. My SO liked it until the civet came out and then she told me to never wear it again.

    Don't get me wrong. It's a nice suggestion but I can't stand the smell. I'm sure others will love it!

    Bad?? No - I think its Great! Now its no fancy - dandy scent for a 15 year old - but it is classic excellence. 4-5 sprays and its smooth leather for a good day.

    Have several bottles (all vintage if that makes a difference) and its one of my favorites!

    It's not that bad really. It's definitley smells like the 80's though. It kind of reminds me of Azzaro pH, but much greener, and darker.. but not like Polo at all.. it's actually hard to describe. Maybe Azzaro pH, meets Quorum, meets Givenchy Gentleman.. The citrus notes are nice in it though, but it's definitley not for everyone.. only somebody confident can pull this one off. Projection is beast, even on current formulation. Your vintage is gonna be super beast.. be careful.

    You are reading my mind. I would say 10 sprays only. Because 15 sprays will scare the person himself.
    Another good one: 10 sprays of Kinski

    Vintage Aramis is like well aged whiskey. Not all will appreciate it. For 8 bucks buy 2 bottles. You will thank yourself later.

    Robert Piguet's Casbah EDP has been attracting unfavourable comment from bystanders. Feedback has mentioned something sharply, brutally faecal. Initially it is rather relentlessly powerful before easing into a quite unique cool smell.

    Why do you buy perfume without smelling it?
