I got a sample of Lhomme ideal edp and i like it quite a bit, the dylan blue sample smells fresh but does anyone else think it kinda smells like testicles and balls a bit

So once and for all...

Fragrantica, parfumo, or basenotes for regular use?
>>
SOTD: Cartier Declaration

I smell like a sweaty orange
>>
>>15726856
Yes, it's a solid designer choice.
>>15726955
I meant to reply to you in the other thread. I personally moved to Parfumo. From what I gather:
Fragrantica
>The best database of fragrances
>Mostly poor quality reviews and in particular no negative reviews as they always deleted if they get downvoted to many times by fanboys of a scent.
>Shit userbase mostly, it's hard to find knowledgeable people among countless absolutely useless reviews. No easy means of following someone's reviews but googling 'fragrance name + username + fragrantica.com'
>Active but useless forums full of boomer fragrance moms spamming emoticons.
>The layout was nice, I hate the current one.
>However, the 'popularity over time' chart is really nice.
>The notes were often wrongly added but most of the time they were ok and the way they were sorted from the most prominent to the least was very useful to pick up what you actually smell in a fragrance. Now it's way less readable.
>Somewhat good categorization in different fragrance families, it helped me a lot when I was redoing the old chart >>15726931
Basenotes
>Shit database because as far as I understand every addition must be verified by some admin.
>Best reviews but a lot of them are few pages long essays.
>Very knowledgeable people
>The forums here are arguably the best place on the internet for having actual in-depth discussions about fragrances.
>>
>>15727020
Basenotes cont'd
>You can make your own list and browse fragrances but it's not very user-friendly and what's really the point if some of your fragrances are not in the database anyway?
Parfumo
>The second best database, I already had problems with finding some more obscure fragrances there. But be aware that I'm a hardcore nichefag.
>Good reviews but sometimes they are a bit pretentious.
>Good userbase with many knowledgeable people who are easy to identify. You can also follow other users.
>Forums seem somewhat active but I don't know how good they are.
>The chart section on each fragrance contains a lot of interesting information. Often notes+type pie chart tells me a lot about a fragrance.
>They also have the Men/Women/Old/Young pie chart that everyone can vote for, so you can tell how feminine or masculine a fragrance is. Unlike on fragrantica where you could sort votes by sex but it was absolutely useless for this purpose.
>There is a function for voting the most prominent notes on Parfumo but because of the sheer number of users I still find the fragrantica one way more accurate. On the other hand I'm at the stage where I know what most of ingredients smell like, so it's quite fun to come back to trying to find out the notes myself.
>The Souk thing seems interesting but it seems that virtually all sellers/decanters are based in Germany, so I rather prefer to rely on my local fragrance facebook groups.
>Custom shelves, quite nice way of categorizing fragrances. As a default you have 'decants, miniatures' shelves on top of the 'have' shelf so it's particularly useful for someone like me who typically has way more samples&decants than full bottles at any time.
Overall I migrated from fragrantica to Parfumo and I'm not looking back. It will take me some time to rate all of the fragrances I rated on fragrantica etc but I'm not in rush.
>>
>>15727029
And one additional point: I anyway use (and recommend) basenotes from time to time when I want to read some more in-depth opinions or discussions about a particular fragrance.
>>
>>15726928
Btw, I've had Mendittorosa Le Mat from pic related on my skin for 8h+ already and can share some thoughts as I believe it's worth bringing to your attention for other reasons than one of the weirdest bottles I've seen. It's a brilliant galbanum+rose presented in an overall oriental-spicy way. If you are a fan of galbanum then I believe sampling it is a no-brainer. Very out of the box (perfectly masculine) rose with a lot of seductive power.

Thanks a lot for the in-depth reply! I mostly agree with everything you've said.
The only reason I'm considering basenotes is the forums and that I feel that their notes are most correct.
Maybe I'll try bothe parfumo and basenotes out for a little while and see what I notice

Victor Wong has commented this under Francesca Bianchi's announcement of a new fragrance called Tiger. Apparently there's gonna be a new Zootopian Tiger. Hyped but imo Amouage Figment Man is could be easily released as Zootopian's Tiger. Curious if he'll go in the same animalic direction as Amouage here.

tobacco rose- theyre lying about not smelling like tobacco, its the smell of you gently rolling the end of a fresh cigarette between your fingers to check for freshness. Opening was iffy, 4x sniffs later I really like it, the tobacco blast is gone. t. ex smoker. very nice now

Salome- urinal cake, straight up. do not like. 5x sniffs later its becoming something else, actually more pleasant and enjoyable. scent memory of an old church bathroom. hard opening for me to like, but its getting better

anibus- blah, i dont even know what this is, no love nor hate, neutral scent

dark knight- hairspray and chocolates. almost pleasant, my nose is intrigued. kind of nice, getting better

under my skin- no. no, no, no, no, no. im picking up more now, but its a tough one. theres something underneath i like however

e-water: i like this one

dark knight- books or cardboard. i dont even know, i think im getting vetiver, i get the shoe polish bit. my nose is probably blown out at this point. meh

bengale rouge- i like this

sticky fingers- very nice baked goods with urinal cake in it. its neat enough.

lovers tale- all of hers are starting to smell similar now. did not like at first, its ok now


these are my first impressions. As such, my opinions will probably change. im a picky cunt apparently.

Idk I like Josier and the stuff he made for Prada, Valentino and TF are really crisp, top notch frags. But I’m not feeling this one. For once I despise spicy food so anything that remotely resembles it is a no-go to me, although when the strong habanero smell fucks off and turns into a velvety mint it’s tolerable. But still, 5/10 at best. His Orquidea Negra and Mystery Oud are his best works, easy 9/10s

There is no tobacco in this fragrance, so you're off here. There is however something in it that makes it have an ashy thing going in the background.. anyway you sampled a lot (nice samples btw), personally my nose gets fucked quickly and I have found I appreciate samples the most one day at a time where i wear one new sample each day.
sotd here: bengale rouge
>>
>>15728220
Everyone just talking about it as a "beast mode" fragrance is missing the point. It's so austere and calming, I love it
>>
>>15727311
Yes, it’s very pleasant. It’s one of the smoothest Vetivers I’ve tried, know rough edges anywhere at all.

>>15727333
Bianchi scents aren’t for everyone so maybe you just won’t enjoy them, but how long has it been between spraying? You really need to do two a day at the most and give them the full day of sniffing.
>>
>>15728244
I wouldn't exactly call it austere. Quite opposite it's so balsamic and comfy.

Yeah I really get this - I don't know how much I'm just falling for the psycho-tier charisma but he really seems like he just needs to get all of this stuff off his chest and he has nobody to vent to except his subscribers. The kind of things he says are the things you would normally say to close friends, and talk about with them in depth. Over-sharing is a sign of loneliness I think, people don't do it if they have a real, reliable social network in their life. It can't be cathartic to tell the world about your jerking off habits, especially when his comment section will just fanboy over him no matter what. I genuinely feel sorry for the guy cause it seems like he's looking for something and not finding it.

ok so my sample arrived
>first impressions
wow this is smooth, can smell lemon and vetiver but it's very very cohesive unlike TDH (my favourite) which doesn't smell like a blend of stuff, TDH smells like bitter oranges, straight up whereas this smells and feels more toned down but luxurious, like silk v cotton
>5 mins later
hmmm smells like cumin
musky and not too pleasing
where did the fruit go?
>10 mins later
ah ok it's melded with my skin now
back to being very silky in texture
now smells kinda vanilla esque with maybe a hint of orange
reminds me of iced coffee for some reason

all in all, I can see why people would say this is an upgrade to TDH. If you're in the mood for something smoother, luxurious and silky as opposed to the vibrance of TDH that can be hit or miss I'd say try this if you decide you want a more mature higher end scent with a similar attitude
this is TDH but grown up
personally I prefer TDH still because of it's aggressiveness but I'll wear this tonight and see if my gf likes it

>>
>>15728732
Not him but what are your thoughts on Monsieur? Obviously you like it, but to me it’s one of the best first hours of a fragrance I’ve ever tried, but something about the drydown just doesn’t excite me as much.
>>
>>15728215
>What's that?
Josier. He’s Spanish master perfume that’s made stuff for big names but just launches his own brand. It’s very niche and keeps normies away like a charm. The one on anon’s pic is one of his weirdest, more avant-garde fragrances, it goes from fucking habanero and chili peppers and fire, to soft mint and sandalwood. Personally wouldn’t wear it but seems based to me. His best is Orquidea Negra like other anon mentioned.
>>
>>15728735
I love it, of course, it's one of the best "manly yet elegant" frags I've tried, the rum+patchouli really does it for me. I've sampled tons of other patchoulis but none come close to it. Unfortunately it only lasts a few hours on my skin, not the best performance, which is why I haven't bought it yet, but I would jump on it at 20% discount.
>>
>>15728261
There should be a fragrance board on 4chan. Anyway that one smells too synthetic, it’s something you want to avoid when you go for leathery animalistic scents.
>>
>>15728537
Try Josier before you buy Bianchi. It’s more niche and lasts longer.
>>
I have a question for everyone.
I use Trussardi Black Extreme, which always used to cost like $80-90 here for 100ml of EdT.
Now, everyone sells it for like $45, also, everyone offers 100ml testers of it for around $25. What the fuck is going on?
>>
>>15728762
Thanks, longevity seemed inconsistent for me. I got barely three hours one day, but another day I got a comfortable six. It really is elegant, it I think that’s how you could sum up 90% of Malle scents.
>>

yes, I got 20% on it

Because eau de cologne is a specific concentration of perfume. It’d be like calling all steaks filet mignon.
>>
>>15729149
Perfume is the correct term, but is often associated with female scents, at least here in the UK. "Cologne" seems to be a generic term in America, and in the UK it's called "aftershave", which is worse because that's the one time you should apply it.

Perfume, scent, and fragrance are generally the acceptable terms. If you call it "juice" Pierre Bourdon will fuck you up.

Yeah I'm in Burgerland cologne refers to men's fragrance and perfume women's. That's what I thought it was. So cologne is a specific type of perfume, with perfume or better yet fragrance being the more appropriate general term. Got it.

That being said how do you guys feel about Acqua Di Gio

You’re a little off there, chief. Perfume is the 100% correct term for the smelly water in the bottle. Fragrance after all is a broad term that can refer to the smell of food, drink, anything at all. But in the context of these threads we know what it means. People that create the stuff are called perfumers (or master perfumers in some cases). They create perfume.

There are different “strengths” or “concentrations” of perfume:

Eau de cologne
Eau de toilette
Eau de Parfum
Parfum
Extrait de Parfum

A lot of what’s in the bottle is chemicals like ethanol, but to that certain amounts of perfume oil are added. Eau de Cologne is the lowest amount of oil to alcohol. It’s quite a small percentage. The further down that list you go the more oil is in the bottle.

To refer to something as a Cologne might actually be correct in some cases. Colonia by Acqua di Parma is a classic example of an Eau de Cologne.

If you mean the Acqua di Gio Profumo (the one in the picture) it’s a really great designer scent I think. It lasts a long time, has a nice clean smell and works well in lots of situations.

If you mean the original Acqua di Gio it’s a little dated and a little generic these days, but it’s a classic for a reason and it’s still a nice smell, just nothing remarkable.
>>
>>15729066
that's a very good point actually
that said I have TDH too tied into my identity right now and my gf agrees so I wont be buying a bottle of VE
hard to change cologne when you've worn it for so long
>>
>>15729384
Also worth noting is that less perfume oil does not equal worse. Just because something is an eau de parfum doesn't mean it's better quality or lasts longer or projects more than an eau de toilette for example.
>>
>>15729440
It’s been a while since I tried TdH but I really need to resample it. Back when I tried it I remembered liking it, but I was still new to fragrances so I should revisit it now I’m a bit more experienced. When I tried it I was only really familiar with the major designer fragrances like Versace Pour Homme, Sauvage, Acqua Di Gio etc.
>>
>>15729441
If anything an extrait projects less because it has less alcohol, which means it’s less diffusive, and that’s what gives projection.

I've been thinking about a fragrance for summer too desu, I'd like to narrow things down to four scents - hot/cold/day/night.

I think I'm pretty set on my cold night perfume being Penhaligons Terrible Teddy (I've posted my bottle of it here a few times), cold days I'm not too worried about right now as I'm happy just flinging whatever on, I have a bottle of Burberry London and a bunch of designer samples to get through so fuck it those will do.

I want to try and find a nice fresh/sweet/clean thing for warm days, is there anything that's subtle but doesn't have abysmal performance? I have an old splash bottle of 4711 that I was going to just decant into a little atomiser and carry it around but really it only lasts ten minutes, ideally I'd like something in the same vein but a bit more exciting and masculine, less old woman. I have a sample of Juniper Sling by Penhaligons too that I kinda like but I wonder if it's a little too middle-aged man, also I think that's better for nights, and it doesn't seem to perform well either.

I have a sample of Neroli Portofino on the way, I've smelled that before but it was ages ago and I didn't take time with it (it was in duty free lol) plus a couple other things. I was the guy asking about Live Jazz in the last thread and one of you suggested some Amouage stuff so I went ahead and ordered some samples.

Any thoughts?

You’re too cocky my brother, the tables will turn soon again. I don’t want to reveal too much for obvious reasons but I am a financial professional working in a top quantitative buy side firm myself and trust me I prefer /frag/ every day and night over /biz/. It’s a shithole that will sometimes hit the jackpot but otherwise it’s a perfect study case for all worst possible mental biases at the same time. We had some extraordinary months first in equities now in crypto and I guess some people had to make money there too. Good for them but I guess you don’t know how it looked like over other last three years before that. I wish you well and to retire early but let me give you one advice in return: overconfidence like yours, especially in trading and investing is son of a bitch. Be careful.

Nah don't blind buy it, if you can't find any samples (check if there are any UK facebook groups for decants buy/sell) then wait a little and you can usually smell it in most department stores and similar.

Basically
Colonia - most citrus, most classic
Essenza - most soapy, less citrus
Intensa - more spicy, less soapy
>>
>>15730345
Because I’m fucking dead inside and I need to hide the smell

Didn't think that was possible.
>>
>>15731425
Absolutely, the neroli (that's not in Colonia) and the bigger dose of jasmine and addition of lily-of-the-valley makes it a lot more reminiscent of a white soap. In a way it also is a bit more modern though, i would say

Essenza is very snice. When I was a kid, my dad used to take me to this Italian barbershop to get our hair cut. Essenza 100% reminds me of that place. It is definitely very soapy, but to me, it’s not like fancy hand soap, it’s more like shaving soap.

Blind buying in general isn’t advised, but if you like the whole Italian barbershop vibe, you’ll like Essenza. I don’t think too many people would find it unpleasant at all.

I live in a penthouse apartment in Munich.
My name is Daniel Schütz
I'm 31 years old.
I believe in taking care of myself, in a balanced diet, in a rigorous exercise routine.
In the morning, if my face is a little puffy, I'll put on an icepack while I stretch my penis.
I can do a thousand now.
After I remove the icepack, I use a deep-pore cleanser lotion.
In the shower, I use a water-activated gel cleanser.
Then a honey-almond bodyscrub.
And on the face, an exfoliating gel-scrub.
Then I apply an herb mint facial masque,
which I leave on for ten minutes while I prepare the rest of my routine.
I always use an aftershave lotion with little or no alcohol,
because alcohol dries your face out and makes you look older.
Then moisturizer, then an anti-aging eye balm, followed by a final moisturizing protective lotion.
There is an idea of a Jeremy Fragrance.
Some kind of abstraction, but there is no real me.
Only an entity-- something illusory.
And though I can hide my cold gaze...
and you can shake my hand and feel flesh gripping yours...
and maybe you can even sense our life styles are probably comparable,
I simply am not there.

If your to dumb to slowly get rich by working, you’re surely to dumb to get rich by trading. If you think you are trading you are actually gambling with a horrible house edge.
Save cash until you have 3 or four months of living expenses. Then continue with an equity index, then slowly add a little bit of bond indices to reduce overall volatility and rebalance to equities in a downturn. No more than 5 to 10% crypto please my friend.
>this is a fragrance thread
Ah, yeah, I basically go with Interlude daily now. Interesting thing to me is that in autumn and spring it smells way more balsamic and green than in the winter. It works great in high heat as well. The incense is way more dominant then and the fragrance unexpectedly more subdued.

Thanks, I mean, one can make living out of trading and I know people doing it. But when someone is so charmed by one of the worst places on internet to get financial tips from like /biz/ to the extent where he comes to threads on other boards and recommends people here to go post there to retire early, then I think he might not have what it takes to make it. Trading/investing with consistent results is really harder than most people think. I'm 100% positive it's just easier to land a 6-figure job than to get rich from trading. I wish him good luck though and hopefully he will make it.

Try Eau de Guerlain. That's a classic cologne that actually lasts. Turin called it the best citrus fragrance on earth.

If you end up liking this kind of white flowery summer scents then be sure to test Ferrari Bright Neroli. It's a cheap gem very similar to Neroli Portofino but lasts longer and costs 10x less than Tom Ford.
>I was the guy asking about Live Jazz in the last thread and one of you suggested some Amouage stuff so I went ahead and ordered some samples.

aight lads, give me an outlandish recommendation or something, I want to find that fragrance, you know what I'm talking about. I'm yet to smell a lot of them, probably the one I look for is the sitting already on the Sephora's shelves and I ignore it or its a hidden niche.


I enjoy Sauvage(not crazy, I use it more because it works with the ladies), ADG Profumo, Fahrenheit, Ombre Leather, LNDL, The One, Armani Eau de Nuit, Givenchy Gentleman Boisee and quite a few others. I do dislike Bleu de Chanel, it smells like rotten grapefruit and blue ballpoint ink.

Overall, probably ADG Profomo is the most comforting smell for me, as cliche as it may sound. I was blown away when I've smelled The One for the first time also. I like Fahrenheit too, too bad it's labeled old man smell.

Give some names lads, what fragrances are the closest to THAT fragrance, did you find it yet?

I love these two, thought about getting them now on the Aus Lieben sale, but went for Monsieur instead.

It lasted nightmarishly long on my skin and projected strongly too. Obviously bought it for the meme and didn't expect it to be any good but it truly is a scent from hell.

thank you lad, this one lead me to L'air du dessert marrocain. If you've smelled I'd appreciate a description.


I did smelled quite of a few of the mall fragrances already. Though I learned you should not judge a fragrance by the paper strip smell, so I can't say how all of them behave on skin.

Another fragrance enjoy a lot is Platinum Egoiste. Man, such a clean but not bland smell. It just gives a sense of coolnes, like I've got nothing to prove, you don't like smell, haha, fuck off, go smell all the Invictuse, you basic bitch, I aint no simp. Sorry for the rant I'm not a local, but i've noticed this thread is not usual 4 chan bullshit.

Another frag I'm curios about is L'Occitane. The basic one. That bottle just speaks to me, I must try it.

Reflection by Amouge left me speechless too, but I think it was the female version I've tried at the mall. The pour homme should be even better


So what fragrance left an impression on you for some time lads?
>>
>>15732065
Not him but you don't have to write any disclaimers. Write as much as you wish about fragrances you love. In particular, as I said earlier you have a very snice eclectic collection, so your opinions are valuable for me despite the fact that I tried but didn't fall in love neither in l'eau d'hiver non en passant. I really like /frag/ because of variety and personality of taste of different anons. If not the anon constantly writing with passion about Francesca Bianchi I would probably never try her frags and The Black Knight happened to be probably the best fragrance I've tried in 2020.
>>
>>15732097
I think I’m the person you’re referring to that originally got the Bianchi discovery set. I finally finished writing my thoughts on loads of samples I tried. I think it totalled over 6,000 words... I’ll post some of them sometime, but not all of them.

Well for me it's THAT amber fragrance. Attaching Turin+Sanchez review of it.
>Another fragrance enjoy a lot is Platinum Egoiste.
You should most definitely try the 'Fougere' path on the chart then.
>Another frag I'm curios about is L'Occitane.
It's great and you should be able to smell it once shops open up again as it's available everywhere. Cheap too.
>Reflection by Amouge left me speechless too, but I think it was the female version I've tried at the mall. The pour homme should be even better
Try Ferrari Bright Neroli for some cheaper masculine, summer, fresh white floral scent.
>>
>>15732115
In this case thanks for that
>>
>>15732124
My pleasure. It’s funny how Black Knight was one of my favourites too (I got another sample with my Etruscan Water) but I wrote the least about it. I just found it hard to articulate exactly why I loved it, but I guess not every thing needs to be intellectualised. It’s just about the personal pleasure.
>>
>>15732065
I love LAP Passage d'Enfer, also by Giacobetti. I can't imagine being disappointed by En Passant, but sure, I'll sample it first.
>>
>>15732050
You should absolutely try Papillon Anubis but also Fahrenheit le Parfum

Recommend me 3 most remarkable Josier frags lads. Happy to explore a new house.
>>
>>15732166
Damn, his scents are quite cheap actually. I expected them to be around the standard niche pricing but 79GBP for a 50ml bottle seems reasonable.
>>
Are any of the Tom Ford fragrances actually worth buying, or are they just overpriced elegant bottles with a mediocre perfume that lasts for 3 hours?
>>
>>15732185
>are they just overpriced elegant bottles with a mediocre perfume that lasts for 3 hours?
Yes.
Unless you're buying from the private collection. Nothing else is worth. Tuscan Leather is peak normie tier. Tobacco oud is good too, but getting normie quick.
>>
>>15732185
If you take all things in account Ombre Leather and Beau de Jour are the only ones worth buying imo. If private blends were cheaper then perhaps Tuscan Leather and Oud Wood but for the price he asks there are so many better quality, cheaper fragrances than a Givaudan's synthetic oud in a bottle and Ombre Leather imo smells just better Tuscan Leather.
>>
>>15732095
JF Floris is a better PE
>>
>>15732166
>>15732176
Josier is PEAK comfy in terms of price for a niche. but watch that go up and up in the next few years. As for the most remarkable ones, those have to be Green Leather, Quetzaly, and Mystery Oud. Specially Quetzaly, going from fucking jalapeno fire god to cute little minty twink is beyond based.
>>
>>15732185
Black Orchid, Tuscan Leather, Tobacco Oud, Tobacco Vanille, Noir de Noir, and Oud Wood are all legendary, but the house is falling off a cliff a bit. Beau de Jour is the last great release in my opinion, and before that Ombré Leather.

Did anybody ever try this flanker?

I've actually never smelled the original Cool Water and I've been interested to see what that's like, but a lot of reviews of this say that it's nothing like the original and should've been released as a standalone product rather than a flanker. I was given a sample when it was released and I liked it at the time so I kept the little sample bottle, and I rediscovered it this year and bought a bottle, having completely forgotten what it smelled like.

I don't like it all that much. There's something nice in there, but I find it too sleazy. It has an extremely loud, fruity-bubblegum opening, there's something a little spicy in there too, and once it dries down a bit there's mint and a sort of marzipan note in there. I'm still trying to figure out the aquatic note, it's there but I'm having a hard time pinning it down. It's maybe a tiny bit boozy. These are all things that I love in theory, but something seems off. It's all very synthetic, and you can totally tell it's cheap. I imagine a scruffy, dishevelled 30-something in a cheap suit, who went on a crazy night out in the bad part of the city and woke up the next day on a bench down by the river. Now he's walking home with a terrible hangover. He got into a fight he doesn't remember, his shirt all torn up and his lip is busted. The yuppies are on their way to work and they're all staring at him as he walks past, he's a little ashamed but doesn't really give a fuck because he's still pretty drunk. Know what I mean?

Actually I like it a little bit more now that I did when I started writing this post but it's still not my favourite

>>15732188

You gotta love /frag/ for being able to see through bullshit marketing of having an 'exclusive' overpriced pseudo-niche line and a regular less prestigious one and instead focusing on the quality of fragrances picking best from both worlds.

Thanks, will look into these. What about Ambre Tabac? It seems to be the highest rated and the most popular of his fragrances at the sane time on Parfumo.net. This rarely goes hand in hand.

I've never watched an anime. I don't understand your reference anon :^(

Watching Wafts' The Best Frags of 2018 video. You can tell that they have developed their taste a lot over last couple years. Plenty of fragrances that probably would not make it into their top lists these days for not being obscure enough imo. It's good that they got a reality check from Sarah McCartney and the guy from Meleg who let them know that synthetics and other meme ingredients they hated can be lovely. I expect them to start talking about more accessible fragrances again soon.
>>
>>15732118
incredible description, l'air du dessert marocain, possibly one of the best fragrance names. I'm eager to smell this thing. Funny thing we actually have a fucking classy niche perfumery in the new opened mall in the heart of transilvania. yep, romanian here, sorry. did not entered it last time I went because I wore adidas campus, bomber jacket and baseball hat. I will next time, gonna wear a nice trench coat or something, boots and act arrogant. would probably wear 8 spray of montblanc explorer and act like it's the aventus they have on the shelf, they wouldn't know i'm sure. they seem to have frederic malle and all that, crazy stuff. Just watched that docu posted earlier here fron the French TV, good stuff. Curious how Musc Ravageur smells, not expecting wearability, I unerstand it's more of a personal expression from the perfumer, Raucel.

Gonna try that Occitane too.

I will try the real Reflection, if it's good the price is not an issue. That Ferrari look nice, I wad loking for Leather Essence for some time, think it's discontinued.

On other news, I have these coming in the mail:

Bvlgari AQVA Pour Homme Eau de Toilette

This is what makes them top-tier. They’re willing to learn and change their opinions. They’re not a WHATTUP GUYS CHECK THESE 10 PANTY DROPPERS channel, they’re not shills, they’re not pretentious nichefags who enjoy huffing their own farts. They’re just top lads who genuinely enjoy fragrances and want to share their passion with other fragrance collectors. Truly /our guys/.

More normie tier, but still niche. I would've included it but you asked for 3 kek.

It is same type of fragrance as Kouros. Classical statue force of nature type of a frangrancr which takes what it wants. Not for pussy boy Ultra Male Pink Sugar fairies

Unironically great frags. I would recommend a very masculine fragrance to cap it off brutha

>>15731363
No one claims that it is some internet elite community gatekeeped by nichefags who ask you to smell beaver ass before you can register. Obviously you will have more normies than knowledgeable people and hence the sheer number of them will make the popularity rankings skewed towards they likings. But why on earth I would go read their reviews about Aventus? The niche reviews are better than fragrantica's counterpart and that was my point.
>>
>>15732599
Yes, keep spongebobposting

keep covering yourself in millions of fragrances when all you need to attract women is to smell like baby powder and vanilla.
>>
>>15732574
I'm just curious, what reactions were you baiting for?
>WHAAAAAA THAT'S NOT TRUE I HAVE SECKS WHAAA AND I DON'T LIKE ULTRA MALE WHAAAA SOMETHING SOMETHING NICHE THE BEST
Something along these lines? If so you must a bit more effort, having sex is nothing out of extraordinary for grown ups. Idk what's the age average here but I think a typical /frag/ poster is not quite the stereotypical /fa/ insecure teenager or a shut in.
>>
>>15732639
It's obviously nice to get compliments but I reckon most of posters here don't really have goals aligned with those of coomers.

Taste is personal, if that's the type of fragrance you are looking for then try a few and decide yourself what is the best for you.
>>
>>15732320
Ah I see, thanks again

Guys, stop giving the sperg (you)s. That’s what he wants. We know being a thirsty incel is pathetic, it doesn’t need to be said. It’s axiomatic. Don’t let him derail /frag/ again. We were doing so well!
>>
>>15732262
>All 10 ml, bar Colonia Essenza and Pegasus 10 ml
Try to order smaller samples: 1-2ml is often enough to weed out scents you don't like and you can always order later a bigger decants for testing the scent thoroughly. 10ml is a lot (but still better than blindbuying).
>>
>>15732666
Yeah, you are right I think. Nice trips btw.
>>
>>15732081
Try to avoid Amazon if you can. Search for your national facebook fragrance groups. That's where the best deals are and after a while you'll get a pretty clear picture who's a legit seller. It's especially easy for niche ones, these boomers there are quick to call out fakes and scammers.
>>
>>15732077
If I had to pick from these two, I'd take Prada. That being said I haven't liked neither of these fragrannces.
>>
>>15732298
You summed up perfectly what I like about them
>>
>>15732643
I’m a 37 year old boomer. I doubt there are too many teenagers here. Teenagers can’t afford frags and they all just wear Axe or Old Snice anyway. The only teenagers here are the shitposters.

yep, i don't really need 10 ml, but I already order 10 mls for scents that I think I will like, some of them already smelled. See how fast I finish the 10 ml and if I really need a bottle. Would buy 5 ml but where I buy from it's 10 ml for the cheapies and 2 ml or 10 ml for stuff like Acqua di Parma, Nasomatto, PDM. Man, I've ranned trough 10 ml of ADG Profumo like crazy, possibly less than 2 months. I buy super cheaps like Chrome on 10 ml too, not sure if I would like a big bottle, great smell but I have to try the Chrome Aqua. All these cheapies add up, I really look to have about 7-10 fragrances in full bottles, not more.
