    Default Recommend me fragrances based on likes & dislikes

    Likes:

    Aramis by Aramis

    Chanel Antaeus

    Polo (Green)

    CK - Obsession

    Paco Rabanne Pour Homme

    Antonio Puig Quorum

    Creed Aventus (prefer more smoky batch though over citrus).



    Dislikes:

    Dior Fahrenheit (Gasoline?).

    Givenchy Gentleman (Disgusting 100%).

    Kouros (Urinal cakes, Don't understand where people get the sweaty locker room vibe from, to me it 100% smells like a freshly cleaned public toilets and samples it multiple times from different stores as I really wanted to try and get into this one).



    I have just bought 3ml samples of and tried (but only once so far, so still in process of testing:

    Tom Ford Oud Wood ( I thought it was generically sweet smelling, maybe not worth the price, dry down was a bit more masculine and nicer, could see a woman being able to wear this too).

    Creed Virgin Island Water: Fruity, powdery, very unisex, maybe too feminine smelling? Defintely more of
    a summery, clean fresh scent, probably wouldn't buy it.

    Creed Silver Mountain Water, Same as above.

    Creed Green Irish Tweed - Cool Water but maybe less harsh and synthetic smelling, would probably just by Coolwater and save the money.


    Colognes I used to like but I used so much I am bored of and want nothing to do with anymore:

    Terre d Hermes

    Sauvage (2015)


    Thanks.

    Great sample selection, both regarding the consistency with your tastes and preferences as well as to rediscover- even if mostly in the current formulae that still remain anywhere from not bad to downright good- of quite a few stylish and timeless male classics
