  2. Re: Acqua di Parma Best 3 Treasures current available 2021

    Bergamotto di Calabria La Spugnatura. Was never a big AdP fan - ok stuff but nothing spectacular. This has displaced and become my favorite summer scent (followed by CH Neroli Boheme, PdE Azemour...

    Re: Houses I never hear about anymore...

    For Malle, Estee Lauder seems to have not brought focus and development. It feels like just another neglected brand to me, although I liked their most recent releases. Have a look at their website -...

    Re: Why the hate for PDM?

    One my early niche purchases, inspired by YouTube reviewers, was Layton. Some years later I hate it. It was always awful, I just tried to convince myself it wasn't.
  7. Re: Best niche fragrances or houses to start a collection

    Agree with several others - good value and great scents from Nicolai Perfumeur. Strong catalogue from FM too. That said, Les Indemodables would be my choice. Every fragrance is FBW imo and offer...

    Re: Your zoologist parfum prefer.

    Moth and squid. Wife likes Bat (Prin) and T-Rex. Another friend sampled all and decided on Bee - smells sensual on her, not so much on me.

    I would have picked up Hyrax as well, except I am...

    Re: MDCI Invasion Barbare Thoughts?

    IB is a top 5 for me in a now 200+ bottle collection. It is so versatile, especially compared to other favorites (ACDD, Salome, Chypre Palatin, Vanilla Havane). One characteristic that makes it so...
  12. Re: What are 5 fragrances that are criminally underrated?

    Almost +1: Bottega Veneta Pour Homme Extreme. Both the original and extreme versions are incredible, and rarely mentioned.

    Re: Fake testers in perfume shops in France

    IMO your conclusion is premature... there are other untested explanations. The one you propose runs contrary to logic as well. What other possible explanations could there be to you getting a...
  17. Re: Tell us a fragrance you can't get how others love

    +1 Baccarat Rouge 540. I literally feel like I want to vomit when I smell it. Might be a scent memory connected to carnival smells and the horrible go-in-a-circle rides until you vomit of my...

    I own both and to my nose they are definitely cousins. Both have the same office-friendly clean soapiness. Prada l'Homme stays there while Reflection Man brings more complexity through the...
