Aventus is based. I might wear it tomorrow or try out my sample of viw for a second time.
What are the best middle eastern scents? I don't mean the western fragrance clones they make but their own stuff. What houses and specific fragrances are good for a typical oud/rose/other typical notes like saffron
>>14337557Guys, I just bit the bullet on a cool fragrance I heard about, it’s called “Sauvage”. I saw a video on it where it featured the man himself, Johnny Depp. His cool and alternative rock star vibes really worked with the video and the desert scenes. “Sauvage Eau De Parfum” matches my rock star vibes, try it out. I posted this in the old thread by mistake, forgiveness.

I finally got to sample Versace Eros Flame. Very nice! Like a toned down Individuel with a nice juicy cover. Not bad.Is it still inexplicably considered a cuck frag here, though?

SO somebody who is under 25 can pull off this in summer ?
tom ford noir extreme and farenheit arrived todaywhat to expect
>>14338303noir extreme very good but silage is a joke belcam and classic match which ones should i look for i already got CW, blue depths, and aspen i don’t know why but i just have this fascination for cheap fragrances maybe just bcus summer is rolling around and i don’t feel bad for liberal applications
>>14337578the shade of the branch was cool and the oak bole wide with sediment was still warm to the touch under the sun. beyond the shrub the pitch of the hill fell out a mid-day swale rolling with humidity. i walked along the deep green and thought of another view of the world, a trip of simplicity where a man can eat and sleep without a tremor, can find his next step where he wills it and not at the helm of some omen that augers in the dark drop of day. i was angry and didn't know where i was going, but knew i was going in the the right direction. "he needs me," i whispered to myself. "why me," i continued. looking down as i walked i reached a spread of dusty ratchel, shattered in irregularity. i kept walking. "why do you carry your rage," kouros asked, it's voice reverberating over the stone path. "i'm tired, kouros," i said. "why do you continue to walk," it asked. "i can feel you pushing me," i said. "i wish to light the flame, but not the fire. all great men journey." i came upon a dolmen and laid under the stone to rest. "i hate traveling," i said. "it sickens me. i've already seen what i've not seen. these hills all look the same, this trail i've walked before. i've smelled the air and seen the sun set here and there. you're not showing me anything new. you're tiring me. i used to waver between inattentions and i was happy and now you push me to find meaning that isn't there. you're losing by choosing me because i'm nothing special. don't you get it? haven't you seen the emptiness? you fill me with intent but all there is is an endless drowsiness that never completes, never lets me sleep." my eyes welled up and my tears scorched trails to my ears. "sleep, my son," said kouros. and i slept.
>>14338263since only french, english and germans are real europeans.yes. rest is almost african tier.
That lavender opening is sharp, but boy does it smell good afterwards
>>14338295It's a spicy aldehydic fragrance, so for summer, it's going to be nauseating. If you live in Australia tho, it's going to be gentle and kind. A true gentleman fragrance.
To the anon that was asking about pic related. Finally arrived. It reminds me of a more refined version of the original Burberry for Men. Maybe its the bergamot, sandalwood, amber combination which triggers the comparison. I do get a creamy lemon, but I don't get much of the lemon meringue pie gourmand vibe. I looked into the batch I received and it's and EDT from 2014 which is the year they changed from EDT to EDP. I really think the gourmand vibe was in the earlier EDT batch's (2012 and earlier). I get a creamy lemon with pepper, sandalwood, bergamot and amber but it doesn't smell edible. I'd be really curious to try the EDP and see the differences.Overall I really like it, and the sillage smells great around you but then again I really liked the original Burberry so if you don't like that you probably won't like this.
I get free shipping over £50 with a perfume click order in the UK.Do I upgrade my bottle of Prada L'homme to a 100ml, or should I grab a little bottle of something like Paco Rabanne PH as a blind buy?
>>14338576I'm the anon from the last thread, how is longevity/performance compared to extreme allure? i tried allure extreme, i like it, but the performance was not that good to be honest, only 4-5 hours.
Is the Allure homme line worth getting as a set for a collection? I love AHS/EE for their own uses in summer/winter. Wondering where Edition Blanche and the Og allure homme would fit in my rotation though
>>14338579Do you like old school barbershop fragrances like Rive Gauche or Azzaro Pour Homme? Paco rabanne pour homme is in the same style. I would suggest buying a few samples of niche fragrances for the price of a new Prada bottle. Maybe sample Infusion D'Iris if you want more borderline unisex fragrances. Or some of Atelier Cologne fragrances with Iris in the name. Or some niche barbershop styles like Acqua di Parma Colonia, Colonia Essenza, etc. Or the juniper ones from the blue line. Sure some designers are nice but once you start getting into niche fragrances there is no stopping this ride.
>>14338617I would say its about average as well, which is fine for me because this will be my summer work fragrance. I don't need anything beastmode in the office. First spray on my hand lasted around 6 hours. I took a shower and I could smell it on my hand which surprised me. Going to wear it out and will better judge its longevity. >>14338620I could see edition blanche being worn in any season, just like the rest of the allure line. I think it's great for work and as signature daytime frag. It's like yls l'homme vs la nuit de l'homme, where edition blanche is l'homme and ahsee is la nuit de l'homme. One for daytime one for nighttime.
Has anyone tried Torn by Henry Rose? What about the others by them?
I got a tester of by the fireplace and jazz club and after setting for a couple of minutes i like the smell of both but especially jazz club has so bad performance, like 7 sprays and you can hardly smell it an hour laterBad batch or is it like that with Margiela? Im hesitant to buy either now but despite liking jazz club better i lean towards fireplace just because Its actually there after applying
I'm sure you won't be able to answer this.I want to use a woman's fragrance. I don't like leather and such but flowers and citrics. I want an elegant touch. Yes I am a fag.Recommendations?
>>14337557Ive pretty much never worn any kind of fragrance in adult life. I'm reading the posted links now. What do you usually aim for when selecting a fragrance?
>>14338731>what occasion do you want to wear it>budget>notes you like/want but you probably dont know what you like right now
>>14338725Byredo Bal D'Afrique if you ain't a poor poof.
>>14338725Byredo Bal D'Afrique. It's unisex but leans feminine. I'm straight and was seriously thinking about getting it because it smells that good, but it was just a bit too feminine. >>14338773Hivemind
>>14338731>budgethow much money do you want to spend ? 50$ ? 100$ ? 200$?>where and what occasion to wear fragrancein the office, on the street, going in a club, going out, an event, etc>notes you likewhat do you like ? dark chocolate , vanilla, wood, floral, etc.So just go to a shop and try fragrance. if you like one, ask for a sample, if they don't give you, buy online, is not a good idea to drop 150$ for a fragrance and after 2 weeks, you don't like it anymore.
>>14338001If we all just went to the nearest mall and grabbed the generic shit on the shelf as our only fragrance there would be no /frag/ threads>>14338099>>14338240I just want to say as the Replica poster that this wasn't me.

Give it to me raw. I came here back in like 2012-2013 and asked for a cologne. I got recommended Polo Black. It's the only cologne I've ever boughten and used and it got me compliments which was the whole point. I've never had another cologne and I only give a fuck about bitches. Looking for another recommendation that will help me slay pussy. My friend wears Versace En Fraiche(dunno how spelled). I recently bought tom ford grey vetiver because i was at the mall but i feel it makes me smell like an old man?>I'm lost with out your advice
>>14338964Dior Sauvage edp
>>14338725>>14338773>>14338775yes, I really loved it, waiting for the weather to warm up to see how it's performing in heat.If I were gay I would basically just wear Chanel fragrances, from Allure to Paris line, and also splurge on Les Exclusifs. I'm also very keen on every female fragrance Narciso Rodriguez put out.

Has anyone tried Rock Rose? I love how it smells but I’m wondering if it is worth the price. Does it last long?
why are normies so stupid baka

>>14338924Don’t have to be a normie to enjoy drunkenly jumping around. Alcohol makes internet people closer to normies for a night.
>>14338992...so he gonna make it?
>>14338404I’m a regular Kouros wearer. Is it in any way conceivable to add Amouage Interlude to my collection as an 26 year old? Want to wear it semi regularly for evening, and bars. I live in Central Europe and dress rather traditionally.
>>14339328Unironically yes. Apparently the preorders for the official Office for Men are going really well.Frag community is literally retarded complaining all the damn time. He is just a starving young man trying to become someone. He tried becoming an idol with autism pop dance music but he missed the mark by 10 years. Now he is on top of what the modern fragrance industry is leading into and he is going to seize the opportunity with all he has.
>>14338404Unironically good desu
>>14339240>>14339242Rock Rose is incredible. Longevity is middling, I’d say, I get usually 6 hours or so out of it. Not the best, but enough for a date night or an evening out. Check fragrancebuy and fragrancenet, they get bottles on occasion. I got mine from fragrancenet for like half retail.

Sauvage edt, sauvage edp or invictus aqua? Pls help friends.
>>14339642even more cringe
>>14339664Invictus Legend, smells like the OG Invictus Aqua on roids.
>>14339354Epic man might be better suited
I know they’re kind of a meme but what do you guys think of the Ralph Lauren or Polo colognes? Are they any good? Any specific recommendations?
>>14338982which sauvage man? plz reply
Got a sample of this, it's goat. Not nauseating sweet vanilla but more powdery/dry/slightly smokey. I get a raspberry note that reminded me of Tuscan Leather a bit, very nice the oud pair really well with it. Worth a try. Wasn't this really cheap a few years back? I can only find them for like 80-100$ right now. >>14339736EDT is more citrusy EDP is has vanilla, depends what you prefer they are pretty close so it doesn't really matter much. I dont have a lot of experience with them because I dont like the scent. The EDT is probably more versatile.
>>14339764wow thank you <3
Which Creed do you guys prefer ? VIW or Aventus ?Without counting the price
Damn, I honestly kind of love this but I dont think I'm confident enough to wear it. It smells like a grandma most of the time but the late drydown is so clean and pretty. >tfw no qt gf to enjoy beautiful feminine perfume on
Tried some of those highly regarded/respected frags today.Killian- Black Phantom: Yummy gourmand, thot slayer no doubt. However, way way overpriced. Should be 130, not 250-300. There are just as good for less, but it is admittedly good. Id pass unless it was given to me....Portrait of a lady: Much more masculine than I thought. Too complex and niche. An enthusiast will enjoy but youll never get compliments with something that artistic and strange....Musc Ravageur: Breddy Gud. I liked it but I wouldnt buy it for FM prices. (Can you tell im picky?)....TF Noir de Noir: Will be buying. Based. Surprised it isnt talked about more. Dry down for 5 minutes was fantastic....TF Black orchid: Kind of bleh, its alright. Dont see the hype, I was expecting more sweet and seductive....TF Soleil Blanc: Apparently TF new best seller. Good for summer only but its good. Best warm weather TF besides neroli portofino. But I dont buy expensive warm weather scents because shit longevity. ...Plum Japonais: Really good. Leans Feminine but great oriental. Considering buying.
I love Egoiste but it's so expensive. Are there any perfumes out there that's similar to Egoiste but a bit less expensive?
Anybody know where I can buy legit decants of Kilian? Tried a sample of this and it smells like GOD. Even better than the original Straight to Heaven. But am too poor to drop $400+ maplebucks for 50 ml
>>14340410Ah this is on my test list (but now I'm a bit weary because I prefer more youthful florals). I feel for you anon, I enjoy sharing with and smelling things on my gf. Just rock it though, what's the worst that could happen? Maybe at the very least just underspray it so it's only for you. Or maybe search out some more unisex jasmines, take a look at this: http://www.basenotes.net/threads/448259-Masculine-Jasmine-Fragrances
>>14339817Silver Mountain Water, Himalaya, and Original Santal are my favorites from Creed
>>14340498>Just rock it though, what's the worst that could happen?I feel ya, I'm not opposed to wearing something traditionally feminine, my collection is still small though, so I feel like my purchases need to be more versatile - same reason I'm holding of on a bottle of CDG Hinoki, which I adore. I recently tried Kilian Imperial Tea and Hermes Cedre Sambac which seem more unisex and masculine, respectively, but I'm not sold yet. I also really like Reflection Man but the jasmine isn't so noticeable. Definitely still try it, the dry down I mention actually smells quite youthful to me; soapy jasmine. Dont let my impression of it influence your own - its all relative.
>>14340486Kilians prices suck. The perfumed court should have decants of it though.
Any thoughts on Armani Code or Mistral Teak Wood?
>>14339817The thing l like about creeds is the base. People call them glorified designers and I agree for the opening but their musky base is on another level. I like smw aventus and RO the most.>>14340425Ndn isn't really super versatile and some may think it's a grandma scent.>>14340486You can get the 50ml refills for 100$ no?

Can anyone relate?
>>14340716Whats yours, desu?
How can lalique be so based desu?? Pic related is at the very least an 8/10. What should my next lalique purchase be?
>>14338576i always felt that this smelled a bit like vomit... but i always seem to be the only one who thought this way
>>14339712i'm not that anon, but i see a lot of faggots on Fragrantica don't like Invictus Legend, why ? the performance/longevity is shit ? or Fragrantica are just a bunch of hipsters?
>>14340482its literally 60 pounds for 50ml on notino, could be even cheaper.>>14340912Fragrantica is full on autist faggots, even more than this board. When the dislike bar is just as high as the like bar the fragrance is generally good, its just the autism squad doing their bidding and actual people that have tried it and wore them evening the score.

>>14341307Fragrance One: Handjob for Men
>>14340723iirc when fragrances first became a common thing among the masses in the West in the 19th century, men originally wore stuff like soliflores and women wore the fougeres and "barbershop" scents, etc.
>>14341392Dudes also used to wear high heels back in the day. Still gay af for a dude to be wearing heels today.
Meeting my long distance gf somewhen this year, should I wear something that'll remind her of her dad like Paco PH?Or am I better off with something like Burberry the Beat?
>>14340542Maybe try out the Amouage women's line. I've heard good things. Malle is expensive, but worth trying. Maybe something from Serge Lutens? (A la Nuit/Fleurs d'Oranger)? >>14340734I'll post my little mini collection when I have a chance. I'm a minimalist so I mostly do decants/samples but find myself wanting to explore diverse stuff and I got bored of my only full bottle.>>14340765My gf just mentioned she loves peony.

The brand is borrowing a page from the streetwear community with its latest launch, with a surprise “drop” of 50 bottles on Thursday at an event co-hosted by Highsnobiety in Brooklyn.>With the addition of the cologne, the trilogy is expected to comprise half of all North American sales by next year, from 40 percent currently.>Taino said there are limits to his love for Creed, however. “I’m probably done with Aventus. New batches just aren’t good enough without ageing.”>a super-collector who goes by "Taha" “lives and breathes Aventus,” allegedly owning nearly 70 percent of batches made since 2012. >in a private Facebook forum and marketplace, The Aventus Lounge, evangelists track batch codes and every small difference in scent or longevity. And there are rules: the group’s 4,480 members are prohibited from bashing prices or talking about clones (unless it’s to bash them).>Courtney Elms, a rock climbing instructor in Texas, hopes to be among the first to get his hands on the new Cologne. He owns 10 bottles of Aventus from numerous batches and said he could discern even the most subtle nuances between the juices in 14MO1 and 16CG2 (the former has more pineapple). He recently did a “respray” of his entire collection to identify is favourite. “It covers my soul in a plume of mother nature’s finest aromas. The collection of black currant mixing with the Italian Bergamot instantly brings me close to Igor Stravinsky and his vision of ‘Adoration of the Earth,’” Elms said of the winner, batch 14MO1. “Ambergris is gripping, wrapping itself around me like a canvas being stretched out. [It’s a] scene only reminiscent of a Monet painting as the scent dips into the sunset and lets me know I have arrived.”

Took a liking to Polo Red recently. Works great for this time of year; but now I need to decide what I'd like for summer.Last year was Versace Eau Fraiche, but...I saw a it being sold in the area's shittiest Walmart so I don't wanna use it anymore.>winter was Bleu De Chanel EDP
>>14342997Idk about you by my skin literally eats up every cologne, yet Rasasi Hawas is absolutely beast mode for projection and longevity on me. And It just smells so good. It's the most complimented frag I have. I get compliments on first dates all the time and even some ladies at the office say it's the perfect frag for a man and I've worn all kinds of frags to work without any compliments. ASHEE, Dior Savauge, YSL L'homme, Issey Miyake L'eau D'issey, Prada L'homme, CH Men (original), ADG, Polo Blue ect.
>>14343443Their blue line is very accesible, try Ginepro di Sardinia, Mandarine and Fico di Amalfi to see if you like what they got.>>14343454Versace is piss poor, and the memes are pretty much on point. Chanel hasn't released anything interesting in a lot of time. Time to move on to the bigger boys like Guerlain (try l'homme ideal cologne) or entry level niche (see post above for Acqua di Parma) or Mancera (chad miasma Cedrat Boise, easy soapy lemon that is very office friendly Lemon Line)
I can get a good deal on Montblanc Explorer.Is it the best Aventus like frag out there for the price?Really skeptical to try CDNIM and stuff like Pinapple Vintage is a bit pricey for a frag I'd only really wear on dates
>>14343443AdP's lineup is like 80% light citrus scents
>>14343570It's pretty weak for a Aventus like fragrance. Best clone for the price with nuclear projection and longevity is Al haramain's L'aventure. It's like 30 bucks on notino. I would personally stay away from anything Aventus, check out the post above about Aventus in the USA -looks like the meme really outplayed itself. If I would have had the chance I would sample less know Creeds like Erolfa and go from there.
>>14343570Haven't tried explorer yet but I'd get a decant off basenotes or something or just get another fragrance and stay away from clones. They dont have whatever creed does to make aventus good and just try to copy the top notes.Cedrat boise isn't a clone but is aventus-like and also very nice.
>>14343677Do we, collectively, put too much emphasis on longevity and projection? Sometimes I wonder if the line has been crossed between>I like to smell niceand >I am Persian
>>14343684>Cedrat boise isn't a clone but is aventus-like and also very nice.This.Cedrat Boise is great. Imagine Aventus with actual QC. Tone down the smokiness, replace the pineapple with blackcurrant, and make the drydown a little softer and creamier.It's still got fantastic longevity, though. One spritz on my neck can be detected as a skin scent 18hours after applying.
>>14343688>>14343684I wanted to like cedrat boise much but all I get is old cedar on my skin.
>>14343686Seems like that is what the trend was around 2013 when these kind of fragrances got popular. It seems like quality and longevity are not something that is easy to achieve. Performance is caused by the quality of ingredients and blend.
If I want a cheap dumb reach summer night/fall/winter frag should I blind buy The One EDP?It's cheap enough at a 50ml to get for a now and again frag I can just wear on afternoons out and such
>>14342915Fragrancebuy and fragrancenet are both very reputable. I’ve used both dozens of times and never had a problem. They’re considered the go-to sites here for buying full bottles.
>>14343261Sandalo or Leather is better than both of those
>>14343771I tried it the other day and hated it. The ambery smell gives me a headache, but that's just me in particular
LDDM might be the GOAT. masculine and ambery but somehow fresh at the same time
Blind buy a vintage fahrenheit?
>>14344128if you have the funds and the price isn't too crazy, yes. also if it's a confirmed vintage (checkfresh is pretty much the only resource but that's not always accurate, codes can repeat). worst case if you don't like it for yourself you can just resell it for higher than you bought it down the line
>>14344056>LDDMi'm familiar with or can figure out most frag acronyms that pop up itt, but what's this?
>>14344194https://www.fragrantica.com/perfume/Tauer-Perfumes/02-L-Air-du-Desert-Marocain-4573.htmli got the candle of it from tauer. perfect apartment smell
>>14344007I'll try it on skin somewhen then, I love amber and tobacco so it seems to be a frag I should like.not keen on the idea of it fading after 4 hours like people say it does. That's the reason I haven't bought a bottle of La nuit either
This is my current collection, /frag/. I'd like to explore some niche brands but most of them are not really available where I live. What type of fragrance should I consider buying?
Thoughts on 4711?
>>14344479I like to wear it to go to the grocery store and this kind of stuff. Smells very fresh but doesn't perform at all.
>>14344498Any suggestions for a similar scent with more longevity, that's not gonna break the bank?
>>14344462The Body Shop White Musk is incredible but is probably the worst preforming frag I've ever used. Shame.
>>14344502>4711Ferari bright neroli
>>14343570CDNIM is unironically the most complimented frag I've ever worn, including aventus, just don't go out in public until it has dried down for 30+min because the opening is obscene
Anyone tried Ferrari Silver Essence?
>>14340564Thanks, unfortunately they don't have STH Extreme, only the original>>14340665>You can get the 50ml refills for 100$ no?Yeah, but again, I can't find any place that sells ExtremeProb gonna try Ursa to see if it's similar like what they say on Fragrantica and buy that instead
>>14344205seems like Tauer use to have a much higher profile. L'Air du Desert Marocain and Lonestar Memories were major scents when they came out.
>>14345095LDDM came out in 2005 bro there was no internet fragrance community
Yesss yall going to nordstrom with a pocket full of cash tomorrow. Probably just gonna reup on tam dao honestly, but gonna sample the fuck out of everything I can.
>>14338062Dior Homme CologneGinepro Di SardegnaVersace Pour Homme (as always)
>>14345300>no internet fragrance communityso? who said anything about that? L'Air still had a very positive reception upon release
Despite the fact it was obviously going to happen it’s a shame to see people shitting on Jeremy’s fragrance just because it’s him.
Should I blind buy Leather essence if it's super cheap for a big bottle? Or is it a cheap frag for a reason?
wtf kouros is actually amazingused to hate it, tried it again yesterday because of the memes and I actually love it now. probably getting a 10ml decant soon (full bottle is too much and i'd probably chase down a vintage one in the future)
My fucking dad uses kouros so it’s ruined for meAlso gf just got me this little sampler, already had fireplace for a while but jazz club is a nice night fragrance
>>14345856You hate your dad?
I know it's a complete normie frag but there's something about basic scents like ADG and Le Male that are easily wearable, even if it makes me smell like everyone else.I'm kinda tempted to cop bottles of both for my work rotation but I dunno, feel like I could save up and get something better
>>14345866No but I’m not going to wear a fragrance that smells how he’s always smelledWould feel weird
>>14345889at least you'll be able to remember how he smelt when he is long gone
>>14345889carry the torch anon
>>14338062>What's going to be your 'go-to' frag this summerMugler Cologne for the hottest days.Xerjoff Uden for date nights.YSL Rive Gauche PH when I'm stuck in my air-conditioned office.
>>14341773Why are you surprised. It's basically the safest, crowd-pleasingest fragrance out there, and the high price tag makes buyers think they're getting a luxury product.
>>14345920I just got Rive Gauche PH, you know even the square glass ones from La Collection are discontinued in the US now right? If you love it you might want to stock up, that is if you’re in the US. If you’re in yurop you lucked out.Love it so far, it’s basically a super upscale classy Drakkar Noir. Not loud and creates a nice hazy blue-green soapy aura around the wearer. I’m gonna be wearing it a lot.
>>14343677should I blind buy L'aventure? Seems very nice.
>>14345735>Ginepro Di Sardegnathis one looks niceI might get a sample
>>14346094Yeah, I know I did. I first smelled L'aventure and then smelled Aventus and was really disappointed that it smelled really the same, Aventus only has that pineappple opening that is making it different
>>14338062Nautica Voyage and Versace Pour Homme
>>14346105Some other lad here put me on to it and I’ll be forever grateful. Surprisingly good performance for something so light.
HOLY SHIT are there any other fragrances that he knows? Jesus these two fucking scents are always on his shitty lists cuz muh bitchezzz luv dem what a stupid fucking Npc holy fuck. I literally cannot fathom why people watch his vids cuz THEY ARE ALL THE SAME THEY ALL HACE THE SAME FUCKING FRAGS
>>14346192He wont stop making them as long as Pajeet Polo Shirt and Hard Part Pedro keep buying the frags. And there are a shit ton of Pajeet Polo Shirt and Hard Part Pedros out there.
>>14346192His newest video is already and quite amusing (he fucked up not knowing a cream was a tanning lotion and his camera falls over) and there are some fragrances he doesn’t usually mention. When he does a good video, I really like him, but so often he can fuck it up.
>>14346280Alright, not “already”.It’s a bit of an odd topic (rainy days) but you can apply it to other situations I think.
>>14346192He puts loads of different scents in his videos. You probably dont even watch him.
>>14346462Yes but these are the ones he mentions nearly in all his videos. Along with other designer pajeet tier garbage
>>14346489Eros is pretty good tho, probably the best versace I've smelled, ADG I don't really get the hype, smells like lalique white aka chicken spices
>>14346501>Eros is pretty good thoYou shitting me? It’s a fucking synthetic garbage. It can hardly be called perfumeryInb4>b-but all frags are syntheticYes. But there are different components at different price and quality levels. Compare this shit to Chanel or Tom Ford
>>14346527>You shitting me? It’s a fucking synthetic garbage.I like it and most non-austists also like it, good for a date or a party and lasts long, sweet but on the fresh side
Im usually Mennen or Rexona Cobalt body spray. Also hmmmm Reuzel after shave
>>14346527Not him but Tom Ford is overpriced trash. It's literally just rehashed vintage designer concepts marked up at like 5-6x the price, and he single handedly ended the aromatic fougere as something designers do and now monopolizes on it and sells it to aforementioned Pajeet Poloshirt and Hard Part Pedro. FUCK Tom Ford.
>>14343172>>14343344>>14343347Thanks. I'm wondering about these unisex fragrances. Am I being insecure?
>>14346733Do you mean could a woman wear them? Yeah probably. Might be seen as a bit daring but why not. The Diptyque in particular is pretty unisex, and Chergui probably is too.
>>14346626What the actual fuck is a polo shirt pajeet or a hard part pedro?
>>14346754Polo Shirt Pajeet
>>14346754>>14346776Hard Part PedroI can smell the Eros and Tom Ford Tuscan Leather through the screen.
>>14346776>>14346779Gotcha. Yeah, that’s Jeremy’s demographic alright.
>>14346779These people had better not be ruining Tuscan Leather for me.I live in England so I should be fine but don’t want to take any chances.
>>14346824Are you kidding? Tuscan Leather is as NPC as it gets, (((Drake))) even namedrops it.
>>14346846Yeah, but most people don’t have £160 to spend on smelly water.
>>14346846And? Who gives a fuck if some rapper namedrops it? If you like it, wear it. Caring about what other people think is NPC as fuck, though given your use of the /pol/ cult buzzwords, it shouldn’t surprise me much.
What up lads, I'm thinking of buying bright neroli.I already have nautica voyage and I need another cheapie for summer. How does bright neroli smell? Never smelled neroli portofino, so I can't really imagine the smell, any anons tried it?I'm looking mainly for cheapies because I'm not big on freshies and enjoy spending my frag money on heavier scents
>>14346892I don't like it.>complaining about /pol/Hard Part Pedro detected
>>14346280God bless his autistic heartI know you browse here Jeremy, keep it up buddy
>>14346998I got my wording wrong because I actually intended that first part to be making fun of him but reading it back it sounds like a terrible shilling attempt. Oh well.
>>14346910I can’t really help, but there are slight similarities between NP and Mugler Cologne if that helps. They’re not identical at all, but serve a similar purpose.I’m looking at Bright Neroli as well but the only place I can see it in the U.K. is Notino. I assume they’re reputable enough?
>>14346989Ok, but that dude does, so Drake namedropping it is meaningless. I don’t give a fuck about /pol/, I just don’t like when you dipshits interject /pol/ shit in places where it doesn’t belong.
>>14347005Hey man, I'm not calling you out on anything. I actually like him, my response was to your description of his latest video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=baNamYu9Bck&t=0s
>>14346910Haven't really smelled Bright Neroli, but I did smell TF NP. It's a very nice clean pleasant scent, only slightly citrusy. Not sure about the performance.
>my man ain't doing too hot right nowShe might be hotter than Demi Rawlingshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UL7fYI2t5F0
>>14347036Really? I never smelt any neroli heavy scents either (as I said, not a fan of freshies) and I thought it is going to be a fucking citrus and bergamot clusterfuck combo >>14347016Notino is one of the biggest companies when it comes to fragrance in europe from my experience. I was also checking out mugler cologne together with encre noire sport for my summer rotation, so I might give them a shotThanks for help anons, will probably cop in a month or so, so if I remember, I'll post an update about the scent
Recommend me some dark, mysterious, melancholic, deep, strange, odd but not goofy fragrances.
>>14346106>>14346143thanks bros. Ordered a 30 ml bottle of L'aventure and a 5 ml sample of Ginepro Di Sardegna. Will post when I get them.
>>14337557So Black Saffron is a less potent version of Tuscan Leather, right?
>>14347016Notino are ok but you can pick it up on allbeauty too. They have the others in that line as well, radiant bergamot and pure lavander.
>>14347045She's ok. The main part is that she acknowledges that Fahrenheit is one of the best ever, whereas pretty much everyone else passes over it.
>>14347104Not him, but I own that, and I don’t find it dark at all. It smells like that cassis soda they have everywhere in Europe.
>>14344479I use it as an aftershave sometimes. Or I'll pour a few drops into a warm or cold bath after a long day
>>14345856Ask her how much that costs pls
Any recommended odourless shower gels?I use a sandalwood one but it’s strong as fuck and ruins fragrances. I was thinking of Bull Dog but I’m sure there are alternatives. I’m in the U.K. if it matters.
>>14347310You know shower gel isn't soap, right? It's perfumed gel with no antibacterial or cleansing properties. Just use Dove bar soap.
>>14347310What one do you use currently?Since I bathe after morning shifts and have 4-5 hours before I'm back at night I don't mind a strong shower gel for lounging at home
>>14347314Y-y-yes, I knew that...Surely it must do something?
>>14347315Taylor of Old Bond Street Sandalwood.It’s been reformulated now and it’s much stronger and more synthetic smelling so it’s time for a change.
>>14347314Dove sensitive skin bar soap is what I use. Unscented and based.
What fragrance do they wear?
I've got over 50 fragrances and am considering sticking to only three in the future. Kouros, Sauvage, and OG Allure Homme.
>>14346998"Jeremy Williams" is a complete fraud. He's a fame chaser and is paid by frag companies to promote them. All he cares about is $$$His real name is Daniel Schütz and he's an Ashkenazi Jew.
>>14347675Can you /pol/fags not? This is a fragrance thread, it has nothing to do with da joos.And yes, we all know about Jeremy, we all read the same reddit post you did.
>>14347696I've read no such thread, I know him from living in the same area and his previous career.Why are you automatically trying to associate my post with pol and negatively because I said he is a Jew. I'm merely pointing out the fact he isn't some German guy called Jeremy and therefore he is disingenuous. If I said some so called British guy was in fact an American would you tell me to go to pol? Your associate with Jew equates to something negative is simply antisemitism. You might want to try and keep that in check.
>>14347675I'd know my kind if I saw them and Jeremy is about as goy as it gets
>>14347722Nonsense! I'm a German Ashkenazi Jew myself and like I said, I grew up in the same area as Daniel. One of my friends attended his Bar Mitzvah.
>>14347709The tone of your post was overall negative, and it’s not unreasonable when someone calls someone a Jew on 4chan to assume that they’re a /pol/fag because, we’ll, c’mon... it’s kind of their thing.If that was not your intention, I apologize, but I’m certainly sceptical.
>>14347709>trying to associate my post with polCause these threads are filled with nothing but fallacious dipshits who try to poison the well whenever something legitimate comes up. Watch, somebody will chime in a reply that I need to go back to "MuH ConTaiNmEnt bOarD hurr" I don't even go on /pol/ lmao.
>>14347737M8, we get /pol/ dipshits in here screeching about da joos all the time. Remember that one midget nazi-larping autist with rotten teeth who was spamming these threads a while back? Not super unreasonable when someone comes into the thread talking about Jews to think they come from /pol/. Once again, I apologize if that’s not what he was doing.
>>14347733>accusing me of a thought crime to cover up your antisemitism Of course one part of my post was negative because this guy is a fraud. He does not care about fragrances and is only out to get fame and money. He is pushing fragrances for fragrance companies to pay him. He's not neutral.Watch that video of him in New York, I believe. In which he approaches people in the street. He's a sociopath. His whole way of speaking to people is off which is why he puts girls in his videos to come across as some great guy with a vibrant personality to attract women. He's a total fake. I mention he is a Jew because I don't want to say he just uses a fake name but he presents himself as some blonde haired German guy when he's not that. It's all fake.
>>14347744Well, I apologize then. I jumped the gun. Again, not unusual for us to get /pol/ autists in here.. we are aware of Jeremy’s past. Not a whole ton of fans of the guy here, he’s mostly a meme.
>>14347740That guy was an obvious troll who was racking up the body count. He was getting endless replies. They feed off that shit. Same with the "niche vs designer" troll. The guy was baiting the fuck outta everybody. It's insane how much people get into their feeling about this shit that they can't tell a troll post if it sucked their cock. You're all insufferable desu. Except Kourosposter. That guy is pretty based.
>>14347737Yeah. My point was simply that he's not some German guy called Jeremy and every part of him is fake. Why is that? Just a warning to anons who think he is some German model who attracts women all the time and you should totally buy every frag he recommends. Then people just try and pass it off:>hurr go to polIf I had said he isn't called Sven and isn't Swedish but is actually Pierre and a Frenchman nobody would have said anything, Probably questioned why is lying and has a fake persona. As soon as I mention he is Jewish suddenly they are in shock and assume it must be bad because of their their own internalized antisemitism that when "Jew" is mentioned they think something negative. Then they play the savior role of protecting the poor inept Jewish people and try and discredit you and say go back to pol. Really vile.
>>14347740>Remember that one midget nazi-larping autist with rotten teeth who was spamming these threads a while back?HI THERE. Happy I'm still on your mind, just like I am on yo mommas mind. I'm not a larper and I engage in actual fragrance discussions, not trolling.
Well, OP, might as well start a new thread. This one’s fucked.
>>14347768Yo, Cecil. You still pining over that 19 year old who looks like Alfred Molina in a wig who dumped you? The one you moved halfway across the country for and stayed because you’re convinced she’ll totally take you back one day when she realizes how much you love her?
>>14347774Hey dude. Yes I still love Huey. I moved here a few years ago after she invited me and paid for my bus ticket. We were in a relationship for a few weeks until the trolls got to her and tried to shame her for dating an older guy, especially one vile troll named Kathy Larraz who also uses the name LOLI CHAN. I like this place though so I am staying here. If Huey sees the light and releases herself from the bad forces keeping her away then it will be a bonus. I'll always love her. I am sure one day she will find her way back to me.
>>14347781Well, you know what they say: tragedy + time = comedy.This one just didn’t take very long at all.
>>14347783I'll wait until the end of time for her.It's funny how people shit talk me here though when I was dating a girl who has better fashion style than 99% of fa.
>>14347794Wonder if we should tell Niki you’re posting her pics on 4chan...?
>>14347798How do you know I am? I could be Gayleb Robertson. Her account isn't private, her pics are open for all to see. I have done nothing wrong.
>>14347806Mmmmmhmmmmm. Well, I guess we’ll just see what she thinks about all this. Have a good night.
anyone who frequents /pol/ and takes it seriously is a faggot of the highest order
>>14347812You are either Caleb, Jeffrey, Clowntown or that autist Fubar. Huey has you all on ignore.
>>14347813Dude, you are trying to be edgy going against pol which makes you left wing while at the same time using homophobic slurs. Dumb.
>>14347817Nope. Just a random on the internet who doesn’t like you.Probably don’t post pics that link back to her social media next time. Too late now, of course.
>>14347824>Nope. Just a random on the internetSure, sure you are Caleb or Jeffrey.>who doesn’t like youBased on what reasons? Oh yeah, you don't have any. Maybe you do, maybe it was that night I spent with yo momma. Sorry if we woke you up. >Too late now, of course.Hurr durr I think I can threaten him! You trolls are so obvious. >>14347825Yo momma.
i want a strange avant garde smell, not sexy chad smell or basedboy floral. pls recc.
>>14347851>nichefag detectedjust fucking kys pencilneck lmao
>>14347851We don't do avant garde here. Chad smells only.
>>14347856>>14347859swallow my secretions magnifiques, noselets
>>14347794actually you were really annoying some months ago on that thread, but somehow it is comforting to actually see someone who's always around like you or based kourosposter or hookerfag, it makes /frag/ feel like some kind of shelter, for me at least, btw do any of you know what happened to jeremyposter?
>>14345856Fireplace music festival and lipstick on are the best out the bunch
>>14347878At least you spelled it correctly, even if you enjoy smelling unpleasant and unwelcoming.
>>14346910I'm not that experienced with fragrances but I have bright neroli and for me it doesn't smell as light and citrusy as the name might suggest, I think about it more as a light floral/aromatic fragrance than as something zesty and sparkly like Mugler Cologne or DHC. Anyway I think t's a good pick for the summer, even though the performance for me is kinda bad, for a cheapie you should be good.
>>14347880Yeah, it's kinda cool when things are familiar rather than random strangers all the time. I'm annoying I guess when people shit talk me. I'm a 40 year old single dishwasher and yet people still feel threatened by me. They should really be asking themselves if I can make videos and be open about who I am, then what do they have the power to do? Yes, I am right wing which to me is just about a healthy outlook on life. 7 years ago I was in California getting high all day and being a degenerate. Now I am drug free and try to live a good life. This was me back then high as fuck..https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=li5rzw9h8KQ
>>14347880I'm always here anon :)>>14347744That's cool and all, you might accuse him of being fake and a joo planted by the Fragrance industry to increase the declining sales of YSL and JPG but anyone who knows what millennial 'autism' and social awkwardness looks like, you'd see that he is just trying to become someone. He is pretty much very relatable to everyone on this board. Also isn't Schütz a 'as German' as it gets name?>>14347851Tiziana Terenzi - Laudano Nero
>>14347755This might shock you, but one can be German and Jewish.
>>14348144isn't hitler a jew
Has anyone tried Prada L'Homme Intense? how is it compared to normal Prada? can be weared in hot environment like the previous one ?
Do Hugo Boss do any frags worth owning?Bottled Oud sounds interesting since the apple is a bit different from the usual rose/oud bombs in the likes of Montale and even John Varvatos Oud.Since I'd like an oud frag but without the association of smelling Arabic.
>>14348145Half Jew; also Austrian not German.
>>14348179Yeah I tired it. Idk why but my first impression was that it smells very much like Chanel egoiste platinum. Then I changed my mind because it’s way sweeter. But that initial sharp freshness is very interesting and reminiscent of platinum. Idk maybe it’s just me. Also don’t over spray it cuz it’s really long lasting. I remember I decided to wear it to a poker game with my lads and they immediately asked “welp, someone totally overdid his frag lol”
generally speaking:designer frags are like a well-fitting piece of clothingniche frags are art
IDK what would be my summer scent, help me decide
>>14348590Layer all of them.
>>14348590Take the Belcam pill
>>14348590not even memeing, I've got a similar rexona deodorant which I use in the morning and it smells pretty fucking good. Two quick sprays under each armpit and I can smell myself smelling really damn fresh and pleasant. I think I might get few more bottles for this summer.
>>14348659Based catposter. Welcome back.
