BBC perfume documentary (part 1 of 3):
various fragrance communities/review sites
on DIY fragrances
For anyone looking for fragrance suggestions, give as much information as possible about what you want. Helpful info could include sex, price range, climate/season, use (work/clubbing/etc.), notes/families you like/dislike, and other perfumes you've tried and liked/disliked.
Id love to know a good cologne for me(male) , something that lasts long, good smell and works for casual. I always end up with stuff thay dies out in an hour. Only two i have ever known to last is burberry brit and clubman aftershave.
I use drakkar noir and Usher (pic related)
Do I have pleb taste?
Where can I buy fragrance caps for my testers? Generic or otherwise.
What do they put in this to make it smell like a winters day? I gotta get me some of that shit.
femanon here, i usually wear l'eau de l'issey eau de parfum as my signature scent. It's light, feminine, and seems to convey a sort of sweet, refined oriental demureness.
I've been playing around with dior's poison, does /fa/ like the way it smells? I'm trying to find a scent that's more hardened in a beautifully egotistical sense (tipareth) but not coming off as overtly bitchy.
I dislike fragrances with shit longevity and Demeter's gimmicky line of fragrances is quite known for that. I wouldn't mind trying out Saltwater Taffy or Bonfire. Those sound interesting to me.
I'm trying to force a meme here anon
Lacoste Style In Play is the best scent ever made if you enjoying happiness.
Bought Calvin Klein One Summer 2012 due to good reviews on fragnatica. Huge mistake it smells like something a gross european would wear while touring california beaches
Lanvin Avant Garde is the best price per quality scent you can get. Highly recommended.
YSL La Nuit is pretty BOMB if you can drop some money
Acqua Di Gio doesn't even smell interesting, it just smells like a hotel
Chanel and Hermes scents almost always smell like garbage, like you can get something much better for much less. They literally just smell BAD.
Versace smells bomb.
Grey Vetiver is one of the worst scents I have ever smelled
Dolce & Gabbana the one for men is the one for a 45 year old business men having an affair, don't wear if under 40
A bunch of faggots try to get Aventus because everyone treats it like a holy grail, so it's not indicative of being wealthy. For all you know he can be using a decant, or a smaller bottle in general.
Literally designer GOAT.
>calling Hermes shit and not recognizing the skill of Jean-Claude Ellena
>enjoying the boring as fuck La Nuit
>calling Avant Garde the scent with the best price per quality and not Encre Noire or some other indie brands
shit taste desu senpai
I didnt mean Lalique was an indie brand anon. I know its a designer.
Its winter right now plus darker scents are a lot more interesting than light scents which are mostly the same tired citrus blend.
I'm mainly using pic related atm
Lasts long enough and gets a lot of compliments
>What is different tastes
Besides, La Meme isn't a tired citrus blend and in its defense, I have not yet smelled another light scent where I thought "this smells almost identical", not even something close.
It's dark enough. At the very least wear it on a cool night. La nuit is shit anyway though. People who like La Nuit would be better off getting A*Men Pure Malt. Same purpose just better in every way.
best green scents? something that smells like a garden or a meadow, preferably, though "foresty" recs welcome too as long as the woodiness is downplayed or not overpowering eveything else.
and nothing sweet
Un Jardin line comes to mind if you want something light.
Here are "darker" ones:
- Narciso Rodriguez For Him (wet forest greens)
- Mona di Orio Vanille (green vanilla)
- DSH The Voices Of Perfumes (foresty woodsy greens)
- Frederic Malle Vetiver Extraordinaire (GOAT vetiver)
- Lalique Encre Noire Sport (lighter Encre Noire)
- Chanel Sycomore (haven't tried this one but heard good things)
Check these out:
Mont Blanc Individuel
Dsquared2 He Wood Rocky Mountain Wood
L'Instant de Guerlain
Hugo Boss Bottled Intense
Prada Amber Pour Homme
And then if price is no objection you can never go wrong with Creed Green Irish Tweed
F, under €80, Aut/Spring, something all-purpose
like: chypre, incense, dislike: overly sweet/spicy/smoky/fresh scents
Perfumes I've liked:
>Penhaligon's Lily of the Valley
>Guerlain Shalimar (a bit too smoky/sweet though)
>Penhaligon's English Fern
>most mainstream scents, they all smell the same
Tried LIDG today and really liked it. Can't get my hands on LIDGE to try it. Is it safe to blind buy LIDGE for the increased performance or is the scent notably different?
Can't deny that its one of the greatest designer scents ever but it's just not for me, that gasoline note just doesn't work. That said, I LOVE the parfum version. Take all the best qualities of the original, remove the gasoline note and add some sweet boozy-ness and you've got a good idea of the smell
I hear Burberry London gets girls wet. Like dripping wet not just moist. Can anyone confirm?
jk does any of this bs matter because people will like you first and then afterwards notice how you smell. shit I've had girls tell me I smell nice in high school from wearing Axe. not saying to brag but I mean it's all based on context and how the person views you already. no fancy perfume is going to make someone across the bar notice you, so what's the point?
Girls will like a guy who smells nice period. Just by wearing Lynx you're putting in more effort than most guys. Unless you're dousing yourself in liquid arse that'll be the least of your worries.
The average male where I live smells of stale piss and wears hoodies/jeans/joggers 24/7. At least put on a jumper like.
i have a sample of Robert Piguet's Visa (re issue) and my god is it fucking lovely
nice clean, peachy, gourmand oriental. this is class.
I haven't tried Vetyver, just Orio Vanille.
DESU, not really a fan. Sure, they have a few really good scents (New Haarlem, Scent of Peace for Him, Bleecker Street, Chez Bond) but for the most part I think they make very safe/derivative/borderline designer-tier fragrances and charge upper tier niche prices for them. Also, their entire aesthetic is built around exclusivity and a phony aristocratic New York lifestyle. Basically they're more concerned with their image than they are with actually making good fragrances. That said, this is just my opinion. Like I said, they do have a handful of really good scents and although their retail prices are ridiculous, some good deals can be found online--especially tester bottles
I want this in a bottle. Look at the imagery of this picture and I want you to tell me what you would get from this.
I'm imagining only the comfiest scents.
I used to think they had something to do with James Bond when I first started looking into fragrances. Part of me wishes they were just a random James Bond tie-in because I've yet to come across a scent from them that's worth the shit they charge. That being said though, a lot of people love it.
strangely, the first frag that comes to mind is bottega veneta by bottega veneta
I am a huge Bond fanboy. I own Shelter Island, Wall St and ILNY Marriage Equality. people complain that they smell synthetic - I don't have a problem with that at all. interestingly, a lot of their more popular fragrances (Chez, Scent of Peace for Him, Bleecker) I don't much care for.
there is a long list of other ones I'd love to own. some of my favorites:
>NY Sandalwood, Patchouli
Fragrance newfag here.
>price doesn't bother me if it's absolutely godtier and perfect for me, but generally under 120AUD
>interested in a scent that's not overly flowery, i like vanilla and very light flowery scents. preferably not a citrusy scent - i'm not a summer person.
>casual everyday use, preferably a more unique scent
Another thing, I have a special snowflake complex. I've been avoiding perfumes/fragrances since high school since I was scared I'd find someone else with the same scent, I wanted to be unique. Am I the only one? What can I do, besides making my own perfume which I'm not cut out for?
Literally nobody would be like bitch you're wearing chanel no5 like some basic ho irl
That and smelling like another woman is a good thing..... Reminds men of the sexy woman they passed on the street that one time who smelled and looked perfect
In comes your spend too much time on the internet. No makeup wrinkled goodwill clothing covered ass smelling like a 10/10 and all of the sudden you have guys starring at you in class
i'm thinking of buying pic but i'm not sure if it's a good idea.
it smells amazing to me but apart from being a good concept fragrance i can't see myself wearing it frequently. because it really smells like cuba and my environment just isn't cuba at all.
Trying to be a special snowflake about fragrances is never really that great an idea unless you're willing to fork out the dollars for it. That being said though there are a fuckton of scents out there and it's mostly just trying them out until you find something.
I have no idea how much most of these are in dollarydoos or if you'll even get these in the land down under. I've tried to recommend some vanilla scents, but tbf vanilla scents are more of a fall/winter scent for me than an all year round thing.
Le Couvent des Minimes Cologne of the Missions - Boozy vanilla scent, never really becomes this overly sweet vanilla that most vanilla scents seem to become nowadays. No idea how well this will work in warmer seasons because it reminded me quite a lot of European Christmas.
Naomi Goodsir Iris Cendre- Australian designer, I have Cuir from her and I love it. This not really vanilla but more of a musky floral.
Dior Addict - Sweet vanilla scent, I think most people use it as a night time scent rather than any sort of signature scent, but if you feel like you can pull it off as a signature then go wild.
Channel Gardenia - Floral smell, but, EDP has/had nice hints of vanilla to it. Oooold scent though, even though it's been reformulated quite a few times.
YSL Cinema - Used to be a very nice mixture of floral and vanilla. Not clue if it's been reformulated at all but worth a test.
>skelly, scouted by ysl and that
>pretty boring, sometimes slightly "funny", average personality so I don't to smell edgy or extreme but not boring citrus either
I want to smell cozy but pretty normie if that makes sense (and I want something with good longivety).
Well, you're gonna need lighter scents for summer, so don't ride off the idea of getting citrus just yet. Try Burberry London or Brit that's pretty cozy and normie for the winter.
best feminine fragrance imo, it's fairly popular among people who are into perfume but not among the vast majority of people. i doubt you'll actually run into anybody wearing it, and fits with what you are looking for
Cheers, I'll be ordering some samples now. Really interested in What We Do In Paris Is Secret. Will I have any issues with them shipping it internationally to Australia?
CdG is one of my fav houses. Quirky and uniqur fragrances with those guys.
Go for some gourmands anon. Maybe Spiriteuse Double Vanille/Eau des Missions (cheaper alternative of SDV), Feve Delicieuse (GOAT gourmand atm), Noir Extreme, Le Baiser du Dragon (cheapie), or Unknown Pleasures.
>lots of black clothes, turtleneck type things.
i want to smell super cozy. something that lasts long, not too crazy, but people will notice it. maybe some kind of japanese cologne preferably??
Some of my favorites:
Bvlgari Aqva Amara
Chanel Allure Homme Edition Blanche
Dior Homme Sport
Dior Homme Cologne
Guerlain Homme L'Eau Boisee
Terre D'Hermes Eau Tres Fraiche
Versace Pour Homme
>price <3-400CAD ideally
not too much preference - I can appreciate just about any scent so not entirely looking for something specific. Looking for a somewhat unique/niche scent I can wear daily and be comfy. Wardrobe is mostly black, decent amount of Rick and some Yohji, JanJan Van Essche comfy boys stuff.
Pretty much only worn common/popular scents like YSL LA nuit home, givenchy play, spicebomb, d&g the one, Prada luna rossa, etc. so looking for something I haven't really smelled before or won't be smelling on other people often. As far as niche frag experiences gl, ive only tried on Dries Van Noten and Vetiver Extraordinaire from Frederic malle recently and enjoyed both quite a lot.
since you want it for school, somwthing fresh should work. Cool Water is the mist used one, so it cant be bad. I wear "Nautica Voyage" to University. It smells like fresh showered and is nothing too harsh, you can get it for 15-20€ so you wont go too bad with it.
The price is the only thing that keeps me hesitant.
I actually got a sample of Shelter Island and Nuit De Noho and I love them. How is the longevity of Shelter in the spring/summer?
blvgari man in black is p nice
so is black orchid, desu
What do you want it to smell like mainly, then? Blue north by agonist is very minty. Mint by the leaves series of comme des garcons (or their green edt) as well.
Le male by Gaultier has mint, but a lot of other stuff as well.
Le jardin de monsieur li came out last year, it's pretty fresh.
If you want something proper, try geranium pour monsieur by malle.
I feel that CdGs incense series (esp. Kyoto) would work or maybe the series red (Sequoia and such). Maybe 2 MAN? I'd consider their oblong bottles pretty mid range.
Well you'd need two fragrances for clubbing and casual use as wearing clubbing fragrances can be clawing.
Vetiver/florals work well on spring time so check those type of frags out.
For summer I hate citruses so I usually wear aquatics and right now I'm using Aramis New West.
I think tobacco and leather scents would do well on you. Just google some tobacco/leather niche frags.
> male, 21
> want a scent for wearing to university
> winter time, very cold here
> clothes: beige sweatshirt, black skinny jeans, black derbies, light parka, never any bright colours really, pretty much the same every day
> worn Armani Code for 4 years, used to absolutely loved it but now I can't smell it
I'm thinking Issey Miyake, I remember liking it but its rather summery as I recall
Open to any and all suggestions, I'll go to a store and test them
Also want one for the night / going out that smells how pic related looks. Bleu de Chanel? Don't know
not all florals get "cloying" (what the fuck is "clawing"?) in the summer. Some are very light, especially lily scents which are my favorite
and aquatics should never have left the 90s, generally speaking tbqhwy
Anons, I was recommended to try my request here from /wsr/.
I am looking for a cologne that I bought a while back called champion. I have been able to narrow it down to Etoile champion silver collection. Even with this information, I STILL cannot find the blue case that I am looking for.
The pic attached is the one I want. Would you anons be so kind as to help me?
it was a strip mall kind of place. It was was in Tennessee, USA. I have done some research and it has two other brothers called Etoile champion royal and Etoile champion platinum. I just can't find the classic version. :(
mate, i wear what i want b/c the way i carry myself leaves little room for ambiguity.
also i dont give a shit if it's "feminine" or not. i've worn versace's bright crystal.
Just seems to be some random shit, Chances are one of the ones you said is probably just a rebranded version of yours. Can't really help beyond that since google only really has their website selling them and nothing else.
I'd just like to thank these threads for existing, even though most of /fa/ advice is forever shit.
Got two sample packs from surrendertochance and it was real interesting. I hated a quarter, disliked half, but liked the remainder.
I took 1 ml vials, but honestly that's a lot to work with. If I bought again for the purposes of testing a scent I'd do the 0.5 ml vial.
I'm going to give the remaining samples I didn't like to friends to test.
Gonna buy myself some Tam Dao next.
I got this Prada cologne for Christmas, Amber pour homme. Any fragrance buffs out there that can give me an opinion. I mean I like it so it's not a big deal just curious.
Bleu has that sour incense drydown I don't like and I prefer the sweeter one on the allure flankers. I like the bleu grapefruit opening though.
The terre edt smells more balanced to me vs. the edp.
I also like it and have not read any really negative reviews about it
also, I think Prada is a little underrated when it comes to designer fragrances. definitely better than Gucci, Givenchy, and current YSL which get more posts in these threads
Love Prada Amber, just a really beautiful soapy & clean scent that just screams sophistication to me. Extremely versatile as well, anyone looking for a good signature scent that isn't afraid of something slightly feminine should give it a try.
Prada is an excellent house but I think they get passed over because there isn't a whole lot of variety, all of their scents go down the same soapy & clean path. The only one that really stands out as different to me is Prada Amber Intense but unfortunately it's been discontinued
good choice anon
nice memes bro
its ok. id wear it if i wanted to smell clean at home. if you want to wear it out, then wear it at the summer months as it doesnt cut through the cold
are you the one in the pic? cuz l'eau d'issey wont match your fits
>Gonna buy myself some Tam Dao next.
Did you try the EdT or EdP version? I've only had the EdP which is definitely a great fragrance.
Anyone know if there is any noticeable difference scent-wise? I don't really care too much about performance.
Thanks. Yeah I know what you mean about it being a summery fragrance. I think I first smelt it in summer when I was in Bloomingdales, took me a while to track it down though.
Hey anyone who's tried M7 Oud Absolu how would u say it compares to maybe Oud Noir.. I want another Oud frag but more intensive... considering blind buying this one... any suggestions or help..
Also I just walked away from a few fragrance kiosks and they just stay pushing all these fresh fragrence on me while I was trying for a sample of M7 Absolu.. every time I go in any of them even. And I bought one frag like that years ago, smells nice but does not stay!
got some of this for xmas, smells good to me. its almost generic though.
Well I hear that about practicality any designer Oud scents out lately, not much oud presence.. im fine with that, but some of what I've tried, I really enjoy the effect regardless and I have one I like.. just looking for one more intensive now
far as I know, the EDP version is not available in North America – couldn't find it at their boutique in New York. Thankfully I have a bottle (from their Paris flagship no less).
I'd say try Amazon (got the EDT from there), but you're Canadian. Or ask a friend passing through Yuroland to pick a bottle up as a favor.
Any scents which are similar to this one? I really like bergamot scents like Guerlain or Hugo Boss Bottled.
Well, neither Guerlain Homme Intense or Boss Bottled are 'Bergamot' scents. Its not a listed note at all in the Guerlain and Boss Bottled is a vanilla/apple/cinnamon dominant fragrance. That said, if you like bergamot then give these a try:
Dior Homme Cologne
L'Occitane Eau de Cedrat
Versace Man Eau Fraiche
Ermenegildo Zegna Acqua di Bergamotto
Gianfranco Ferre Bergamotto Marino
Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue
Anyone try sean john unforgivable? Is it a good fragrance?
more lewd fragrance ads please
No it is not a good fragrance. It does not smell like Creed either. I worked in a fragrance store and I legitmately have never sold a bottle. The smell as I can recall is generic and cheap.
But as it goes, try and test for yourself. If you like it, buy it.
>price up to $50
>needed for: weekdays, work environment, casual weekends... Don't really need anything for nighttime and such because I don't go out kek
>want something to match my style which is rugged/casual, I have a beard but I'm not into the flannel bacon beardbro lifestyle so don't worry
>not too overpowering, but something that can be noticed as I walk by, something that would make a girl think "oh he smells good" (I typically wear cologne for myself, not others, I'm just saying it would be nice if this scent could generate that thought)
>something suitable for Winter and cold days
>I usually like Earthy scents, wood, etc. but again I am open to anything that matches my description + is decent for Winter, for instance if there are citrus notes I would be willing to try it
Is there anything that matches nearly all of these criteria? I have Burberry London, which almost does it for me, but it's not perfect. Doesn't last on me for long, even outside of the whole nose fatigue thing.
Dsquared2 Potion EDP immediately comes to mind. These are some others that I think would work although they don't exactly meet your criteria:
Azzaro Visit (extremely dry cedar & incense)
Bentley for Men Intense (boozy & spicy with a nice woody background, performance is excellent, definitely 'niche quality')
Bvlgari Man In Black (really beautiful & mature boozy/spicy/leather)
Dsquared2 He Wood Rocky Mountain Wood (I think you would love this, violet & cedar dominant, but I see it as more of a spring/fall scent)
Fan di Fendi Pour Homme (has been discontinued but you can still find it cheap, very sophisticated suede leather & spices)
John Varvatos Vintage (Tobacco, Suede & Fir with some sweetness, performance is lacking though)
L'Occitane Eau des Baux (another one I think would be perfect, comfy vanilla & cypress)
Rasasi La Yuqawam (almost perfect Tom Ford Tuscan Leather clone for like $60-$70)
L E W D
Also, GOAT fragrance
Has anyone tried the other Perry Ellis 360° versions besides Red? What were your thoughts?
Especially Green would interest me as it seems no one really has tried it in the 2 years it's been out.
The only other one I've tried and like besides Red is White, which is pretty similar to Le Male. From what I understand Black is supposed to be pretty good as well. Just tried to look up 360 Green and there really isn't much info on it, not even listed in Fragrantica's database
Something that lasts long, for daily use
Wardrobe is mostly Stephan Schneider, Dries and basics, all around pretty comfy
Have used pic related for a while, gotten compliments on it too but looking for something a little more distinct
other scents I have liked are CDG 2 and eau d'issey
Black is fantastic: tea, leather, tobacco and some sweetness I can't identify. In the same vein as Bulgari Black and MiP.
White is very similar to LM. Neither are my favorites. And just plain old 360º for Men was not to my liking. Synthetic and IIRC, like snorting ground up SweeTARTS candy.
Hey I think abkut buy Mont Blanc Individual, since it has nice ratings and ist too expensive.
Bur the last 3 scents I baught blind were not too good, so I need your thaughts. How is it, when to wear. How lomg it stays etc.
easy-to-wear, pleasant, citrus/soap fragrance. low-mod siliage and projection. smells like Penhaligon - Quercus, which is love, but is way cheaper.
spicy, woodsy cardamom that - for me - is a year-round crowdpleaser. great siliage and longevity.
in-your-face cardamom with a bit of mint or something behind it. you will smell like any 20-something indian male you've ever met. bought it for $40 but would gladly return it if I could
fuck yes neroli portofino ads. easily part of why I bought it, subconsciously
It's an excellent buy. Pretty difficult to describe the smell, the thing that comes to mind for me is dryer sheets, but I mostly get a creamy sandalwood base with some floral/sweet/metallic notes on top, kind of weird but actually a very pleasant and unique smell. Performance for me is excellent, lasts all day and projects pretty heavily. As for when to wear it, I find it extremely versatile, you can wear in any type of setting. I think it could get a little too cloying in the high heat due to the sweetness and how loudly it projects but it should be perfect for any other time. I personally use it most in the fall & winter. I like that its fresh & clean smelling but still works in the cold weather--those kind of fragrances are pretty hard to find. I've had my 75ml bottle for a little less than a year and used up half of it, I will definitely repurchase when I run out.
Looking at picking up YSL La Nuit l'homme
>in before pleb tier
stick with easily accessible EDT or hunt down EDP? Tried EDT and like the scent, obviously doesn't hang around like my other EDPs though
Male, young, in rather cold and wet Europe. Never used perfume before, but want something for special occasions like dates, but also maybe for improving everyday impression? Something very subtle. My clothing style is preppy-militaria-casual, indigo jeans, dark wool trousers, knitted sweaters in muted colours, white or grey button-downs. Colour scheme mostly dark grey, indigo, burgundy, heather grey, white, sometimes muted green and light navy. In an academic environment with a general bookish-intellectual vibe.
Forgot to mention, some infographic suggested 'Taylor of Bond street: Eton College' or something for my vibe? Is it fitting?
Also I tend to sweat rather fast, will this be a problem?
I'd generally tell you to avoid it as its a meme (maybe go for Tom Ford Noir Extreme), but be sure you dont get the reformulation. I own one manufactured on 2012 and it smells a lot better than the ones now.
These are a bit more daily scent for the cold weather worthy but can be used for dates:
- Imaginary Authors Memoirs of a Trespasser
- Arquiste The Architect's Club
- Diptyque Volutes
- Dior Privee Bois D'Argent
- Dior Homme
Try Lalique Encre Noire or Guerlain L'Instant de Guerlain Extreme.
All trash except for Burberry Brit which is OK
Eau des Baux or Gucci Pour Homme II should be cheap enough scents to be signature worthy.
If you like CdG 2 then check CdG 2 MAN.
Nautica Voyace - fresh, a little sweet, very cheap
Have worn a lot of NP, and have smelled 4711. Similar but nowhere near similar enough to warrant how much they get compared. NP definitely nicer in every conceivable way - apart from the price, of course.
So, my autism finally paid off with this SHINY NEW INFOGRAPHIC. I tried to only include scents I've personally sampled, but that couldn't be the case for some groups so I just picked popular examples
True, it's not a looker and a bit plain as I only used MS Paint, and it's a bit unwieldy, but it's something.
However, I am looking at making a smaller, more concise version that focuses mainly on day/night/seasons and intended use (work, dating, etc.) and an infographic for budget/poorfag scents so input on those would be appreciated.
thanks senpai I'm reading through it right now and it's pretty comprehensive. Most of the colognes you have lean toward the expensive side which may or may not be a bad thing. I'm curious about the Lalique Encre Noire though. It costs like $30 on amazon for the 100 ml so one would think it would only have 1 dollar sign. I probably just don't understand your pricing categorization.
Oh wait I actually just read your post and you address some of the issues.
Well if you actually look at it, youd see that theres a bunch of shit to it. It is a pain in the ass though. Maybe it woudl be better if it was more vertical.
My girlfriend told me I smelled like a recently divorced man trying to get back in the game
So there's that. I kind of like it though, definitively do not blind buy it though. I got it as a gift
I tried some Tom Ford Tobbaco Vanille at an airport as i've seen it posted quite a bit over here, walked past it and it caught my eye.
I mean shit it smells great but £150 for 50ml?
Is it really worth that? I realise it lasts a long time, becuase about 13 hours later when I got home I could still smell it on my wrist, but shit its alot of money for 50ml of smelly water.
At the moment I have
>Hugo Boss Day
>Tom Ford Noir
>Mandarina Duck Pure Black
Only ever really used shit I got for birthdays/christmas
Should I chuck the lot and start with something half decent?
I have to say i'm pretty fond of the Tom Ford Noir though.
Anyone tried this?
There is talk that it smells exactly like terre d'hermes while being dirty cheap.
first I thaught damn they all so expensivey but then I have seen 2 which are 30/100ml instead of 70/50ml (encre noir/ dscuared rocky) and Dior Homme (which is about 50/100ml instead of 70/50ml) and was happy your graphic is bullshit
Read through it and it said that all of them are slightly sweet. Sure this is a good idea? Won't it be too feminine? It is supposed to be very lowkey, and I think it might be weird if I - normal expression is a frown, general grim look - smell fruity
Would appreciate more suggestions, but thanks very much! So I just go to my local perfume store and smell that stuff?
Sweet doesn't really mean feminine at all. If anything unless it's overwhelmingly sweet it'll generally lean more to the masculine side than anything. Most of those aren't going to be carried in normal perfume stores, you can probably find the Dior Homme but the others are pretty niche. Depending on your country some of them will be stupidly difficult to find regardless (I lived in CR and there's like 3 niche shops here). If you want something a bit more 'masculine' you could try something woody or leathery, leathery scents are pretty big at the moment. If you don't normally use fragrances and are planning on using it for special date nights or whatever then keep in mind that fragrances are meant to be subtle.
There are some general crowd pleasers out there that tards on /fa/ tend to look down on because the general public knows about them. Stuff like Bleu de Chanel, YSL Nuit Burberry Brit etc. If you just want something that smells nice and girls will like then I'd suggest you go for something like this desu.
But a few other suggestions if you want
Tom Ford Noirr
Lalique Encre Noire
Got a bottle of Dior Sauvage for xmas and I love it, does /fa/ approve it? I see everyone is mentioning Dior Homme a lot instead.
I see GV as more of a tobacco scent than a vetiver one and I love it too, especially in the summer heat, oddly enough. I'd suggest fans also check out:
Eau Sauvage Parfum
>Is it really worth that?
Only you can answer that. I am not necessarily against paying more for frags I think are worth it, but I refuse to spend ridiculous prices for mostly marketing. Personally, I think TV is a striking scent, but not very versatile and too linear. I still have most of a sample I got years ago and haven't worn it much since I got over the initial honeymoon phase.
I own both and it bears some similarity, but far from a copy. C&W is much sharper to my nose and lacks the mineralic flint note that I love about TdH. C&W isn't bad though, especially for the price.
bought a sample of vivienne westwood's let it rock from perfumed court, and absolutely fell in love. so i ordered a full bottle from fragantica, and it smells substantially different. a bit upset.
could it be reformulated?
could be, compare them to the reviews?
I was given a sample of lartisan tea for two and loved it, bought a bottle and it wasn't even the same bloody thing. so now I have an unknown sample of something that I adore but I'll never know what it is :/
right, pc's didn't come with an atomizer. i'd hate to open the actual bottle, now that i have it, though...
i've emailed pc, asking if they have more, or if they have any info.
anyone want to buy this bottle? :p
I was just wondering if there are any synthetic leather scents.
They might all be synthetic, but I couldn't find much about it online. I'm assuming I'm looking in the wrong places though.
