    Default Have $50 gift certificate for Lucky Scent - What would you apply it towards ?

    Hey guys,

    Got a last minute Christmas present from my sis in texas....Trying to decide what I would apply it towards at the retailer Lucky Scent....

    This is what I currently have:

    Molecule 01
    Escentric 02
    Gengis Khan
    Divine L'homme Sage
    Floris Santal
    Fougere Royale
    Ulrich Lang Anvers
    Sartorial (so no Invasion Barbare, please)
    Lubin Itasca
    Chez Bond
    Eau des Baux
    Brecourt Esprit Mondain
    Murdock's Black Tea
    Sel Marin
    Bentley Intense
    Puredistance M
    Fragonard Confidential
    Creed OV
    Creed MI
    Creed Aventus
    LIDG
    Sycomore
    Malle's VE
    Czech & Speake Oxford & Cambridge

    Gives you a little idea what I kinda like...No Creeds please, Montale's, Rose scents or Amber....Not a big fan of these anymore....

    Looking for a great smelling, daily wear scent that will harbor the compliments as well as satifsy the "nicheness" in me...

    Thanks again guys for all of the help !

    Cuir Mandarine by David Jourquin and Eight & Bob would be two possibilities.

    Got a sample of Idole Eau De Parfum from Luckyscent two weeks ago. Very nice sandlewood with a boozy background and leather base. You can also request three sample with your order.

    I think that will make him regret his Bentley for Men Intense purchase.


    I would give De Bachmakov a grab. My sample is out, and I will be picking up a bottle of this one very soon.

    Also, I would suggest - if you havent't tried it already: Diptyque Tam Dao

    Both very versatile and safe.

    The Penhaligon's are nice. And you'd only be $40 out of pocket.

    Most people seem to love Bentley Intense. I blind bought it too a short time ago - and while only giving it one wearing, I found it to be a lesser version of Lubin Idole. I would certainly recommend you get a sample of Idole (I prefer the EDP, but most people seem to like the EDT) so you can compare and decide for yourself.

    well I ONLY dropped 70 bucks on it and it is very hard to get unless you buy it off of ebay...Im afraid that I might like the Lubin Idole so I better not...lol

    I would put it towards Liquid Night by A Lab on Fire (if you're really looking for a safe blind buy that's easy to wear) or Eau Duelle.


    Other interesting choices are Ex Idolo's Thirty Three and Versilia Vintage Ambra Mediterranea by Profumi del Forte. However, these do not seem like safe blind buys or something you could wear to work every day.

    Perhaps not helpful as it is a critique and not a suggestion, but I would NOT by Chez Bond. It was my SOTD yesterday, and I just hated it. I would say the comparisons with Cool Water and GIT are accurate; a similar constellation of notes. Green, sour and just horrid. The good news (debatable if you hate the scent), about this and all the Bonds I have sampled, is that the longevity is outstanding. They all seem to stick around like the overcast skies here in the great Pacific Northwest.

    I'm glad you started this thread FSU because I got a 50 dollar gift certificate to LuckyScent also and was trying to figure out what to put it towards!

    If I had such a certificate - Lubin Itasca, nothing else in my scent library smells like it.

    I was actually considering this one. How is the longevity and projection?

    Penhaligon's Endymion and Sartorial are both nice. Endymion is sweet and warm, Sartorial is dry and business-like. Quercus is also a good one, but a bit CK One like. I was very tempted to order the Sartorial Gift Set before Christmas.
