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), notes/families you like/dislike, and other perfumes you've tried and liked/disliked.

So my current rotation is pretty weak. You can't really call it a rotation since very rarely use one other than the first, but so far I got:

>Lanvin Avantgarde (which is what I use)
>Sauvage by Dior (got it as a gift from my mum)
>Davidoff Cool Water Night Dive (have had it forever, bought it when I was young and clueless)

I am now looking to for something not too expensive for the daytime, since all of those don't seem fitting. Nothing too sweet though.

Am a male in my early twenties.

Also, if anyone knows a shop that sells samples online and ships to Germany (preferably is located there, too) please share.

Thanks man
going to the UK this newyears, I'll try to check it out, looks available in Edinburg.

If I could bother you so much, what strenght would you suggest?
>>
>>10692092
Thanks. Does yours have the initial blast of alcohol?
>>
>>10692327
there's only one strength, EDT.
EDT has really great performance, lasts easily 12 hours and projects beyond an arms length for a good portion of that on me.
>>
>>10692330
are you talking about literally milliseconds after spraying?
theres almost 0 EDT designer fragrances that don't have a strong alcohol base immediately after spraying.
>>
>>10692341
More like 10 or 15 minutes of pure alcohol. The smell I'm getting now is really close to the one I remember though. Not sure if a fake would've nailed the smell like this.
>>
>>10692377
10 or 15 minutes is a REALLY long time for it to be smelling like alcohol.
should be gone in 30 seconds or less.
if you think it's legit though, more power to you

in general, what do you guys trust for buying bottles online? have had a good experience with fragrances from amazon prime but get nervous past there.

pic related. bond no 9 comes at steep discounts on amazon/ebay/other random sites but hard to know what to trust.
>>
Versace l'homme is what I use. Any suggestions for anything similar?
>>
>>10692582

I got to fragranceX, people at Fragranatica also supports that site.

One time, I was cheap and I bought the unboxed version of HeWood and the bottle come off the wood part(it was a tester so it needed to be refilled) im guessing the glue wore off, told customer service and gave me a refund.

Overall, from that one site, I have yet to find a bottle which serials don't match the one in the box. I think they are discounted to a degree is because its from the warehouse and not from the middleman such as a department store.
>>
>>10692598

That is a such good fragrance. It doesn't fit me but I really like it.
>>
>>10692610

also for that site, for the lower "2 star" reviews that you see, those are reviews from the UK/International, its because they get charged for other shipping company and hidden taxes. Since its a US based company, you won't get charged extra besides shipping, which is usually free since its free after $55, and most time, you'll be paying that much anyway. Yes, some if not most cologne get discounted to around that much, say its $80, it may be $60-70 on the site.

So in sense, avoid if ordering internationally, you may end up paying the actually price of the cologne from the shipping and you might as well get it from a department store.

>10 or 15 minutes of pure alcohol.
Probably not fake, but turned. I just threw away a 10-year old bottle because it smelled like that. I bought it at Macy's and it smelled fine for years.
Lacoste Red if you must know (don't laugh. 2005).

Btw, there was a guy demanding anecdotal evidence of bathroom humidity ruining a scent. That would have been the cause in my case, this never saw sunlight but was in a cabinet next to the shower.
It's probably a combination of humidity and the everyday cycling from cool/dry to hot/humid. Changing the gas/liquid equilibrium temperature and pressure tends to jostle the chemicals and accelerate any reactions.
Also, people usually spray right after a shower. When the perfume comes out, that waterlogged air gets sucked in to replace it. That's how it gets past the sprayer.
Sorry no double-blind study but I did work a few years as an experimental physicist (semiconductors), did more than my share of fucking around with low-temperature liquids, eager to evaporate.

It doesn't really matter where, but a good rule of thumb is 2-5 sprays depending on the fragrance. Try to avoid the front of your neck or face to avoid olfactory fatigue. Personally I do 1-2 on chest, 1 on back of neck and 1 on forearms rubbed between them. TdH's sillage is moderate, so I do 3 total if going to be inside, and 4 total if outside.

I've checked your numbers on checkcosmetic and the first is from 2010 and the other two from 2014, since mine is from Jan 2013 I guess it's possible the sticker would look different. Thanks guys. I'm going to Stockholm next week and I'll take the bottle with me and check the scent with a friend of mine who uses La Nuit but doesn't smell the alcohol in his. However at this point I'm pretty sure this is legit. I'm getting 16 hours of longevity, doubt a fake would have this.

>>10693729
Thanks! That's interesting. I usually have one fragrance in the cabinet next to the sink and the others I keep it in my room, but that makes sense. I'll probably keep everything out of the bathroom from now on.

Hey guys, I was in lecture today wearing Givenchy Gentlemen Only. A few seats away was a guy eating a ripe mandarin. When the two scents combined, I had a mindblowing scentgasm, literally forgot everything else around me.

I've smelled quite a few scents, and I have quite a few meme-edt/edps you guys talk about, but this was the greatest scent thusfar. I know what mandarin perfumes smell like (Gentlemen Only being one of them), and I don't quite find it that mindblowing usually.

Now my questions is: How do I go about mixing this scent myself? If I just order a random mandarin sample, I don't know if I will like it. I don't know how to mix scents in the first place.

So what do I do?

>L'Artisan Parfumeur
disappointed by this house 2bh, tried a dozen scents from them and, despite sounding interesting, only really liked a few and none enthusiastically (Bois Farine > Noir Exquis > Passage d'Enfer > Fou d'Absinthe). really disliked a couple. some of those i disliked to seem like they would make good candles rather than personal fragrances (especially Traversee du Bosphore), so i'm still sorta interested in those products

what does /frag/ like from them?
>>
>>10697411
I actually really like this, great masculine rose scent, incredibly versatile. Cartier are an underrated house imo, they should be right up there in the top tier of designers.
>>
I'm always surprised how plebby /fa/ is when it comes to perfume houses... such conspicuous consumers! all YSL this, Chanel that.
>>
Order a sample, i wouldn't blind buy it... have you tried oud before? its very distinct but maybe in a way you'll dislike. You're also gonna smell like you've been smoking weed. it might also not be suitable for office use as it has high sillage so you'll be leaving scent trails everywhere and it'll be emanating all around you which isn't ideal for work.

>>10693377

Bitch, the YSL shit is a trend, it'll pass. Second, Chanel rarely gets mentioned here and browse /frag/ all the time.
third, I'm not gonna fuck around with "obscure" houses because I want to impress some autist on 4chan.
>>
>>10698279
don't have to be obscure, just niche. I don't understand going straight to the biggest names when you're the kind of person invested in fashion/style, i'm imagining you don't listen to top 40 radio music either... yes i'm being a little pretentious but everyone here is to a degree.

You don't need to find something incredibly obscure but there's a bunch of well respected niche houses with solid ranges and you're almost guaranteed to never meet another person with the same signature scent.
>>
>>10698279
>YSL shit is a trend
La Nuit de L'Homme was already a meme when i got here years ago, and i don't see it dying anytime soon

>Chanel rarely gets mentioned here
Bleu de Chanel use to get frequently posted as much as Terre d'Hermes. Sycomore, Egoiste, and Allure have a decent rep here.

>not gonna fuck around with "obscure" houses because I want to impress some autist on 4chan
your loss. after awhile, designer scents all sort of smell the same as one another (there are exceptions, of course, and being a niche scent doesn't make it automatically "better" but i find they are more interesting more often then not)
>>
>>10698284
Not like anyone can tell the difference. How many people wear fragrances? Those who do wear cheap shit anyways so the odds of having the scent recognized is low.
But I'm not fucking around with samples from niche houses, also they're not worth the expenses.

>>10698290
>Bleu de Chanel use to get frequently posted as much as Terre d'Hermes
Use to. I don't see it posted much, and I've never seen Allure get posted (it smells great btw)

Dunno where you live but here absolutely everyone under 50 uses some kind of fragrance daily, men as much as women, its just a part of daily morning grooming.

Out of curiosity, where do you live? i've been to half a dozen countries in europe and it seems the same everywhere - usually the main problem concerning odor is that people reek of over-using cologne/perfume. Tends to be that people start using it as they enter their teens, much like hair product. There are the odd people who don't use anything beyond deodorant underarm spray but those are the same as those who never use hair products.

If I go on a night out i'm gonna be smelling a jean paul gaultier here and a marc jacobs there and countless others ive smelled on other people but cant put a name to.

I have that sample, haha! Oud is a lovely note, but I think that it's used better by CdG/Armani/TF.

Byredo does have some interesting products. Particularly M/Mink, but I consider that to be more of an smelling experience rather than a wearable fragrance. Quite potent.

The only fragrance from them I've found wearable is Mojave Ghost - lovely fruity scent.

The thing about them is that I hyped them quite a lot when I first discovered them, but after I had talked to one of the key fragrance nerds @ Byredo - I wasn't as enthusiastic. The thing was that not even he liked the fragrances that much.

Their fragrances rarely smell like those of other brands - but I think that there's something missing in almost every fragrance that could make it smell... memorable. I can only clearly remember four or five scents, even though I've tried them all.

Which ones have you tried?

I own and love Tea for Two, one of my favorite tea based scents. Premier Figuier is a summer favorite. Fou d'Absinthe is interesting, but can't decide if it's full bottle worthy yet. Mûre et Musc has a yummy jam note in it and La Chasse Aux Papillons is a wonderful floral. I got a bottle of Jour de Fête in an awesome Craigslist bundle deal, but can't see myself ever wearing it.

Bottom line, I think they have some very good scents that are in the more affordable range for a niche house, but I can't say I am passionate about any of their offerings either.
>>
>>10698265
I have found very few niche scents that wow me as much as Égoïste, Kouros and Antaeus do. I'd say it is more plebby to judge a fragrance by its price tag.

>>10699978
only a few niches are actually way more expensive than designer scents: Amouage, Xerjoff, Creed, Tom Ford Private Blend, etc., and most of the time its because they are also luxury brands and, e.g., come in crystal bottles

you can find stuff by Diptyque, Serge Lutens, L'Artisan, Etat Libre d'Orange, many others for less than $100

eh, I don't really like that trend atm where they take old(ish) pop songs and completely change the tone of it. It can be nice when done right, but they mostly follow the same patterns.

Thanks for posting though, I hadn't seen that before.
>>
>>10700433

"grey market" products often rely upon distribution channels not necessarily intended or condoned by the manufacturers. For example, a fragrance intended for a middle eastern market (for example) is purchased in bulk (at a lower wholesale price) by an American retailer, then resold in the American market at a discount. Some of the savings are passed on to customers.

Chanel doesn't have Grey Market fragrances, they keep a super tight grip on their distribution and they think it would hurt their image of the high end company if they'd sell their overstock to online discounters like other houses do. So they destroy their fragrances remaining unsold.

Sex: female
Current fragrance: CK One (unisex). Top notes of bergamot/citrus and heart notes of green tea. I've been wearing it for the last 5 years.
Looking for: something similar to the one listed above (not too feminine, but definitely not masculine) but more suited for formal events/nights out.
Additionally, I feel seriously conflicted about women's fragrances. I generally stay away from the too feminine ones because I find them too sweet/floral for me (if don't think they match my personality, is that a thing?) but I like them on other girls. There's this one called Alien that in my opinion smells like baby prostitute but when a well dressed girl wears it I feel like they pull it off. I tried wearing more feminine fragrances before but I feel like they don't suit me the slightest. I'd like to try more feminine fragrances, preferably ones that won't scare me off.

that'll help as B.O. is mainly caused by bacterial waste product, but the deodorant itself is supposed to kill or inhibit that, not just cover it up

Hello, /fa/, I need your help.
I'm looking for a fragrance for my girlfriend as a Christmas gift. It's not something I would normally buy for a person, but she specifically requested it.
She's 21, works in an office, and said she likes, "Soft smells, not too sweet. Like baby powder."
Can anyone offer some good suggestions? I was thinking a soft floral would do the trick.
My spending limit is $80ish.

definitely, using retail prices and generally speaking:

mid-level designers (e.g., YSL, Bvlgari) start out at about 60 USD
entry-level niche and high-end designer (e.g., Hermes, Chanel): ~90-120 USD
mid-level niche and "exclusive" designer lines (e.g. Dior's Privee line): ~140-200 USD
luxury niche and designer scents (e.g., Amouage, Tom Ford Private Blend): ~220 USD+

I really want to like leather or colonia oud, but after one hour they make my head hurt

>>10709542
Yeah, I get that, too, from Colonia Leather. Decent scent otherwise.

Try Colonia Intensa and Ginepro Di Sardegna if you haven't already
>>
>>10709118
If you like rose, definitely. I think the rose is more pronounced than >>10709237 implies, and there is a bit of a spiciness, too, for the first 3-4 hours, and then it starts to get into that woody/musky/vetiver phase. Probably the most dynamic scent I've tried. Such a shame for me personally that I don't care for rose.
>>
>>10709118
>>10709782
Oh, and if you decide to buy a sample first from Le Labo, I suggest checking out Labdanum 18, Vetiver 46, Iris 39, Thé Noir 29, and Oud 27 (divisive, as oud is, but worth it to experience). Santal 33 is probably Le Labo's second or third most popular scent after Rose 31, so maybe check that, too (though I don't like it at all, but others here do love it)
>>
>>10708678
I usually buy samples if I can, 1 mL can last about a week and that's plenty of time to make your mind up about a scent, and some anons here have said they've had success getting free samples by asking salespeople.

Just smelling in store is fine, but you don't really spend much time with the scent and don't smell it on your skin, or you are limited to just one if you spray yourself but at least you get a day with it.
>>
/fa/ which cologne of yours have grills liked the most? Compliments etc

Honestly, the one that got the most compliments was the one that'd be considered the most bland on here: YSL L'Homme.

I've seen a couple of people sprayinng in the air and running through the fragnance shower.

Is this just retarded og does it actually add a decent amount of smell?

>>10710801
Like other anon said in the thread, 1ml will give you roughly one week of use. More than enough to decide if you like them.
>>
>>10710508
I'd consider Rose 31 is a year-round scent. On real sweltering summer days, use your discretion but it should still work, I think, and it might be on the edge of being too light for really cold days but it's not like you are going to be spending a lot of time outdoors then anyway
>>
>>10709960
Aventus has gotten me the most compliments when I had a sample, but I personally got tired of it. I started wearing L'Instant de Guerlain as my everyday scent to work, and while I didn't get any comments for awhile, a co-worker, who I hardly talk to, walked past me and said, "Anon, you are my favorite smell." Odd phrasing aside, that was nice, but tbqh I don't care about getting compliments at all.

A lot of remformulations in the works right now. I took a gamble and bought from a specific retailer because it was cheaper, even though I had a hunch it was cheaper because it was a newer bottle. But I haven't smelt it yet.

I meant that the new version (the only one I've tried) does have great performance in my experience despite what others have said, who are probably comparing to what I assume is the monstrous performance of the original

>>10712189
I had this. It's weak so I agree with >>10712219
but, CK Euphoria Intense is superior to it imo, but it's weak also, like many CK fragrances.

The current Dior Homme batch isn't bad imo so what's the deal? It was never as strong as the original silver stem vintage
>>
>>10712189
I have it, it's my daily. Smells nice if you naturally smell 'spicy'. The scent dies quickly, though, so apply to armpits and chest for best all day fragance imo.

Got a bunch of samples and this is by far my favorite scent. Does anyone have experience with it?

I'm not to experienced with fragrances and have never actually bought a full bottle, but this might be my first. Would it work as an all day scent for an early 20s office guy?
>>
I've been using this since highschool and sometimes get complements on it. I don't know why you guys spend so much on fragrances
>>
>>10712655
because we dont try to pick up on 15 year old girls
>>
>>10712464
so not worth the cop?

Should I just get another CdG scent instead? Kyoto particularly
>>
>>10712149
is it still good though? kinda pointless to compare it to an older version that's difficult to find anymore if at all.
>>
stupid whore at sephora told me that 'oooohhh those two are the same, just different size' and I bought dior sauvage instead of eau sauvage. and it smells like shit. gotta swap it tomorrow.

also, how's tom ford tobacco vanilla? I keep hearing about it from plebs, and just now saw it being top fragrance on fragrantica
>>
>>10714038
oh, also I'm looking for a fragrance which literally smells like shit or stale manure, any recs?
>>
>>10714038
it's Tobacco Vanille, and it's a certified meme here (your first time in this general?). smells like a vanilla chai latte to me. really fucking expensive though, like $220 for 50 mL

I have forgotten /fa/ for a while (real shit now btw, even moreso than before)

who cares about price lmao. certified meme, but is it good...

Xerjoff - Zafar

niiice. just what the doctor ordered

Some real oud oils have a certain "barnyard" quality to them. The only non-oil based fragrance I've tried that captures that is Montale's Aoud Cuir d'Arabie. Incredible fragrance if you like oud, leather and animalic frags.
>>
What perfume would be good for a 12-year old boy?
>>
>>10714038
hearing about TF from plebs?
probably just sprayed it once at a neiman marcus and saw the price tag

my daily wear fragrance, probably paid way too much but i love it and my girlfriend loves it too
>>
how do i make my balls not smell?
>>
>>10714038
And Tobacco Vanille is pretty fantastic the first several times you wear it, but it is quite linear and not really interestingly composed once you get to know it. It is also not very versatile, so I don't consider it full bottle worthy.
>>
>>10714111
alright, intriguing enough, gonna try it sometime soon.
>>
>>10714050
Etat Libre d'Orange Jasmin et Cigarette sorta smells like someone laid some flowers over some shit to cover it up and let it dry in the sun
>>
>>10714038
eau sauvage is dated af, why would you want it
>>
>>10697547
/used to have that, smells like fucking chili.
>>
>>10714094
Mont Blanc Legend. Try to purchase from a drugstore, department stores charge too much imo. Good luck.
>>
So my dad wants a scented deodorant. He refuses to wear like a edt for some reason. He'll wear anything, but I want him to smell okay at least. Will Bleu de Chanel suit a 50+ year old at work?
>>
>>10699224
Currently wearing d&g the one, smells pretty cozy to me
>>
>>10715467

I love this scent

my only gripe with it is that it lasts for about 5 minutes, and that no one else can smell it unless they're sniffing my fucking neck
>>
>>10692057
18, under 100$, my fav is clinique happy, bvlgari aqva, sometimes chanel platinum egoiste

lately i started to like tabacco scents, so now i want to buy one
>>
>>10715663
CK One Shock, Burberry London, Pure Havane
>>
>>10715663
>under 100$
>likes tabacco scents

Diptyque Volutes eau de toilette ($95)
Serge Lutens Chergui ($120, but you can usually find it online ~$60 at fragrancenet, fragrancex, etc.)
>>
>>10715767
chergui is too much for 18yo
>>
>>10715663
>tobacco scents
Check these out. I ordered the list from sweet to dry, and thus skewing younger to older. All are fantastic however, and I own all except Michael for Men, which I found very similar to London.

Pure Havane
Burberry London
Michael for Men
Eau des Baux
Havana
Tea for Two
Guerlain Vetiver

not to mention a waste of money. humans are idiots.

>>10716164
so is clothing then.
>>
>>10716192
it serves a function (warmth)
>>
>>10716200
so does perfume. It's made to attract the opposite sex in order to reproduct, which is literally the purpose of life.
>>
>>10716213
>perfume
>made to attract the opposite sex in order to reproduct [sic]

Wrong. Well, I guess that's how plebs think, but a perfume will not get you laid.
>>
>>10716190
I showered twice last week.
>>
>>10716227
that's not even what I'm saying. But if you're denying that smell plays a role in attraction, you're objectively wrong, plain and simple.
>>
>>10716242
>twice

disgusting

Thnx

>People trying to sell their fragrances for retail or more

This irks me, why would I buy a 1.7 fl oz bottle for $30 when I can get a bigger tester for the same fucking price?
>>
female, 29, florida
would like something for everyday, and special occasions
like lighter scents, hate heavy alcohol cling

currently: jean paul gaultier madame(so-so.. I remember smelling it before and it was wonderful, maybe the heat is just not good for it)
previous:
jean paul gaultier classique (my go-to because it's so light and everything is right)
burberry brit (decent)
chanel no5 (was also light and had almost a powdery scent to it, but I felt was too much for daily wear)
there was this one ralph lauren one that made me gag when I initially sprayed it because alcohol, but after that burned off the fragrance itself was very floral/fruity
thierry mugler angel (I wore this in the winter while living in nyc and never noticed the scent)


price isnt that big of a deal because I generally bought most of my fragrances [spoiler]from macys[/spoiler]

looking for something that smells soft, lasts all day, not too heady; this is my everyday scent

my "special occasion" squirts should be something a little heavier, but not obnoxious. I can deal with an initial alcohol burst but if it lasts all night I will literally vomit on myself
>>
>>10717233
soft - d&g light blue
special occasions - viva la juicy gold couture

my 2 favorite women's perfumes, viva may be a bit much on the playful side if by special occasions you mean classy
>>
>>10717233
>everyday
A Lab On Fire What We Do In Paris Is Secret ($110) or Penhaligon's Ostara ($90)

>special occasion
by Kilian Back To Black ($260), Diptyque Tam Dao EdP ($145), or Serge Lutens Datura Noir ($135)

I know you can find the Serge Lutens for half that or less online, and maybe Tam Dao, too, but not for as much of a discount. Unsure about the others.
>>
>>10717347
>$260
Damn, that's Amouage-tier, and more than TFPB. Read that by Kilian is all hype, too (I mean most luxury brands mostly are, but at least Amouage, TFPB, Creed, etc., have good scents to sorta back it up)
>>
lost my sides at this fragrantica review. bonus points if you guess/know which frag, I would not have guessed this
>>
>>10718432
Ha was just reading that a few weeks ago. Caused me to buy a sample and a few others from that house. Not a monster but I'd probably go easy on warmer days.
>>
>>10718432
Had to Google, and I agree. Personally love Le Labo for the most part, but Santal 33 was indeed my least favorite (or at least tied, AnOther 13 was another stinker)
>>
Should I blind buy cdg odeur 53? I know it's a bit of a weird scent but I kind of enjoy the risk
>>
Whats the best cheap fragrance? (Under 30 bucks)

Currently own:

Karl Lagerfeld
CK One
Paul Smith
>>
>>10714038
aight I ended up not getting eau sauvage, and got ysl lhomme intense instead. pretty nice frag so far
>>
>>10719173
You aren't really going to find much in that price range, I'd suggest saving up some money and dropping more on a decent frag
>>
>>10719173
>(Under 30 bucks)
You're definitely going to have to go online and cop something. Bvlgari has some good scents that can probably be found for around that (Aqva Amara, Blv, Au the vert, Au the rouge)
>>
Looking for a frag

Like dior homme intense but with more projection
>>
18 year old college boi
need something that hopefully lasts for most of the day, good smelling but not offensive, and something girls would like to smell. $60 or so would be good and id probably use it all year
>>
Is Tom Ford Tobacco Vanilla really a meme?
>>
>>10719928
Sort of.

it's GOOD but you'd be better finding cheaper alternatives through layering vanilla scents with tobacco ones as opposed to buying a full bottle if you don't want to spend that much.

what is a longer lasting alternative to D&G The One?
>>
>>10719850
Also looking for the same, higher budget is fine for me,though. I have L'homme but it's short lasting and I don't love it
>>
>>10716142
New Haarlem. The grills will eat it up even if you don't actually like it.
>>
>>10719173
Not sure about "the best" and since you didn't give any other qualifiers, I'll just list some of my favorites in that price range in order from easy to like to more challenging. There is some correlation between price and quality, but not a strong one. These are all excellent scents that I would pay much more money for than their current price tags.

360º Black/Red for Men
Midnight in Paris
Tabac Original
Salvador Dali pour Homme
>>
Hey guys, firstly what is the difference between Dior Homme Parfume and Dior Homme Intense?
Then, has someone experience with one of them and the reaction of other people? Ive heared that women dont lile it very mutch and 20 years is too young for it.
>>
http://www.fragrantica.com/perfume/Yves-Saint-Laurent/L-Homme-Parfum-Intense-18841.html

Good or no?

stupid 310 bump limit, how strange

>>10719928
just because it's a meme doesn't mean it's bad
>>
Should I buy la nuit de l'homme? I want a fragrance that is more suitable for winter. I already have l'homme, and it reminds me too much of spring or summer or spring.
