  1. In the southern states of Australia we tend to get fixated on AFL at this time of year, which is a very different game to any other world game!

    Hey mate, thought of you today, watching the World Cup?

    Happy Birthday!!!
  4. I will definitely be purchasing in future, I tried to get it when it was released but Australia got a very delayed launch

    Have you tried Equipage Geranium? You would probably like it.
  6. My collection is locked up away from light and temperature fluctuations. It is always a challenge keeping a large collection preserved and secure.
  7. Nick, with all the liters you have, how do you store them? Do you keep them in their boxes away from all sources of light? What about temperature fluctuation?
  8. Thanks for the feedback as I used this one in high school and I wanted to check it out, but I heard it was very different from the one I used back in high school. Your delineation of it as helped me tremendously. Great " trio"of purchases there btw. Enjoy, mate. Have a great day! Paul H.
  9. I only have a very faint memory of the original that my brother owned 25 years ago. To me, they seem in the same ballpark. The new one opens with a fantastic citrus accord that is similar to a lot of neroli heavy colognes but this one is a touch less dry than normal. After 20 minutes the citrus accord disappears deep into the background and you are left with a dominant combination of nutmeg, cloves and oak moss which is very 80s, very musculine. To me, the drydown is not so leas ant because I am not a fan of these notes at the best of times. And unfortunately projection during the drydown is average. I only tried this one at home so will have to give it a wearing in public to form my final opinion. If it doesn't please me then, it may find itself for sale on the bay.
  10. Nick, does the Armani Eau Pour Homme compare to the original? Thanks, mate. Paul H.

But it takes a lot of work to navigate the range. Once you get past the 10 or so scents that everyone raves about, it’s possible to step on a dud, but there are also gems to be found which either have not caught on or were popular 8-9 years ago but have since been forgotten

Rose Journey

I could say Roja’s Parfum De La Nuit No.3 is my favorite rose, but at $1,400 a bottle it would be a lazy choice. Say what you will about Roja’s line, his rose and jasmine essences are the best going around, which is why he loads his fragrances with

Daring fragrances

I came across this amusing comment in the forums recently:

I sympathise with this comment to an extent. Daring fragrances can alarm the senses because the brain is trying to determine if the smell is safe.

How leathery are you willing to get ?

There are several great leather note categories represented by Bel Ami, Tuscan Leather and Royal English Leather. These three are the most popular of their respective "teams", though not necessarily the best.

Dior Leather Oud, Montale Aoud Cuir d'Arabie and MPG Parfum d'Habit are the great lone rangers in the leather world.

Synthetics vs naturals

by NickZee on 20th April 2017 at 10:27 PM

A natural ingredient is very complex, so some facets will reflect the beautiful door the relevant note is famous for, while other facets will carry bitterness, earthiness and other elements that the perfumer or the user don't want to be there. High quality synthetics address this problem by separating
