    Default let's talk Alain Delon house

    I love love love this house.

    Seems there are some re-issues to avoid for our purposes...

    What do you love from Alain Delon house?
    FYI: I spray all fragrances on clothing, never on skin.

    So far, enjoyed especially Samourai and Iquitos from this house, though quite possible to find even more scents do enjoy if ever getting to test more

    All of his releases. He's only one of three celebrities whose fragrances I buy.

    Hmm. Never heard of him or his fragrances until now. But then, I couldn’t name any other yacht racers, either.

    I have the original Alain Delon and Iquitos aftershave. Descriptions of most others in the line seemed less promising, but that can be deceptive (both ways).

    I have not had a chance to sample any but I know Chris at Scent Land on Youtube has done quite a few reviews of Alain Delon scents. Seems like he cherishes and enjoys those the most of anything in his collection.

    I've tried AD and AD Plus, and they were impressively nice. I got a light touch of FOMO about not having a full bottle, especially for the AD, I think it was. I should have left reviews, but I think I just posted about them in the forums.

    I tried AD, AD plus and Iquitos.
    I did not like AD and Iquitos. AD Plus was better and although I own it, I have worn it only once.
    I guess not a house for me.
    I think the problem for me was both AD and Iquitos were overpowering.
    Beauty needs no morality or righteousness.
    It, like nature, does not give a shit
    Currently wearing: Paradigm by Avon

    Regular AD is another fragrance (though not having remembered this at first, gradually have started to reminisce in an increasingly enjoyable way) do happen to like both regarding actual scent and the performance yielded by/from this

    Haven't tried anything from this house but I'd be most interested in Alain Delon classic, that one appears to show up in the threads here quite a bit.
