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.

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

Vintage was amazing. New formulation isn't bad but is a little boring compared to the vintage. Try it before you buy it though.

gray vetiver is real shit if you are a manly, woodsy type dude. it seriously smells like a mosquito candle after an hour or two

>>10849187
La Nuit isn't a light scent, and I really hope you aren't using it in warm weather; it would be smothering.
>>
>>10849202
I wouldn't call it dark either.
>>
>>10849388
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.
>>
>>10847243
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
>>
>>10849448
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)

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?
>>
>>10849939
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.

How do you guys feel about Bond no9? I've never heard of them until yesterday and their line is amazing. Does anyone here have a bottle?
>>
>>10850669
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 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.

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:
>Queens
>New Haarlem
>Signature

>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?

>>
>>10852087

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.

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.

>>10854227
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.

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.

>>10856708
Well you'd need two fragrances for clubbing and casual use as wearing clubbing fragrances can be clawing.

>>10856726
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.

>>10857521
I think tobacco and leather scents would do well on you. Just google some tobacco/leather niche frags.
>>
>>10861376
>I hate citruses
Me, too, for the most part. I usually go floral in the summer, but there are a few good summer vetivers like TDC Sel de Vetiver and Prada Infusion de Vetiver

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?

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.

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.
>>
>>10864331
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.
>>
>>10864338
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
>>
>>10864338
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.

>>10864825
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

Did you try the EdT or EdP version? I've only had the EdP which is definitely a great fragrance.

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.

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
Mugler Cologne
Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue

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.

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)

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

>>10879616
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
>>
>>10848868
Check out Club de Nuit by Armaf. It's like $32 and is almost a clone of Aventus but with more of the pineapple scent
>>
>>10879627
>Lalique Encre Noire
i just looked up their official web site and they are selling 100 mL for $125

i never see Encre Noire go more than $40 at other online shops. what gives?
>>
Just got guerlain vetiver eau de toilette and love it. What is something similar you can recommend?

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.
>>
>>10876166
They aren't similar but I find that people who like one also likes the other one

>>10879957
Tom Ford Noir and Mandarina Duck Pure Black can be kept if you get rid of your shit
>>
>>10880077
Cool, I'll probably give the Hugo Boss do a homeless person.
>>
>>10879371
You've been a bit conservative with the prices there. All the ones in the infographic that I know the prices of/have actually bought were a lot cheaper than your listed prices.
>>
>>10879954
I've had my Black Orchid since winter 2013
>>
>>10880457
eh, i'd prefer it this way rather than the alternative.
>>
>>10880501
If anything, just make a disclaimer at the top that these are retail prices, and that many of them can be had for much lower
>>
>>10880538
There already is, I just didn't see it, whoops.
>>
Anyone tried this?

There is talk that it smells exactly like terre d'hermes while being dirty cheap.
>>
>>10879371
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

>>10880693
Seems promising. But what I love about TdH is the drydown..I'll keep an eye on this, thanks for the post.

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?
>>
>>10880694
Yeah, retail pricing for fragrances is fucking ridiculous
>>
>>10880985
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
Chanel Egoiste

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.
>>
>>10881136
People hate it because it's too generic.
>>
>>10881136
most here think it's too safe and bland. most people out in the real world will either like it or not care
>>
>>10881136
Nah /fa/ doesn't approve but fuck /fa/. It's a clean scent and most people like it. Smells really boring though, i have one as well.

>>10879736
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:
Havana
Antaeus
Eau Sauvage Parfum
Égoïste
Encre Noire
Fahrenheit
Kouros
Polo
Terre d'Hermès
>>
>>10879954
>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.
>>
>>10880693
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?
>>
>>10883046
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 :/
>>
>>10883108
i'm thinking pc's sample might have been really old, b/c i got it during the post christmas sales.
i should have just bought from pcourt instead, fuck
>>
>>10883046
>>10883108
i also find scents can be a bit different sprayed rather than dabbed on, as a lot of samples don't come with an atomizer
>>
>>10883129
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
>>
>>10877087
this
i think you can find bottles for like 20 bucks. Decent smell.

Job interview tomorrow. Might be slightly hot & Rainy. Which meme should I wear?;
Bleu
La Nuit
Dior Homme Parfum
Sauvage or
TdH EDP ?

>>10884409

Your interviewers shouldn't be smelling your fragrance. If they can smell from like 3/4 feet away then you're overusing it.
>>
>>10884409
Bleu

Nope.
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.
>>
>>10884709
I'd say they're probably all synthetic. No need to worry. Stick to designer to be absolutely sure.

Best to wear nothing, but if you insist, wear one spray of Bleu on your chest, so only you can smell it.
