    My #1 fragrance, love it. Masterpiece!
  88. Re: I'm new to fragrances, how do others identify notes so easily?

    Context of other fragrances (and smells in life).

    Every time you smell a new fragrance, you build your olfactory library in your head.

    If you see fragrance A has a prominent aquatic note, but...
  89. Re: How would you rank your top three fragrances from this list?

    1. Dior Eau Sauvage Parfum
    2. Dior Fahrenheit
    3. Chanel Antaeus

    With possibility of Antaeus tying with Fahrenheit. Really need to sniff Antaeus again.
  90. Poll: Re: MFK Poll (APOM / Oud / Baccarat Rouge EDP)

    Oud.

    BR540 is 'overrated' to my nose; well the Extrait at least. It just doesn't have much character to it; no personality. It's just a simple 'nice' smell, that's it. Doesn't do anything for me....

    Re: Current Fahrenheit EDT vs Parfum

    Versace L'Homme to work.

    Hoping that my Jicky & Ombre Leather show up today.

    DHL Express is really... testing my nerve, to put it nicely, with how slow it's being. OL didn't arrive Thursday.....
  93. Re: Name the fragrance you tried/smelled today for the first time. (Feminine fragrances edition!)

    Viktor & Rolf - Flowerbomb Extreme (I'm assuming 2013 version?)

    It's really not bad at all. I've at least sniffed the regular EdP in store before, and a sample of it just arrived today - so I'll...
  94. Re: Name the fragrance you tried/smelled today for the first time.

    Penhaligon's - Halfeti

    Very familiar, but I can't recall what! I've smelled this oud accord or whatever it is before, it seems like the one in TF's Oud Wood or close to it.

    Has a nice...

  98. Re: D&G The One for Men EdT was reformulated early on it appears.

    Could be! Maybe a result of further product testing, or a newly announced IFRA guideline, or they realize it'd be cheaper to use something else. Who knows, haha

    Guerlain - Jicky EdP 100ml

    Been curious about this one for quite a while. I just put on some copper cap Eau d'Hermes and read a little comparison stuff to Jicky, so what the hey.
