The last (but not least) of the Bianchis is Tyger Tyger. The peach in the opening is so nice, it’s big and candied. There is also something in there that reminds me of Nicolai’s Fig Tea, which has lots of osmanthus, so maybe that could be a part of the “narcotic florals”. I only get a hint of oakmoss, which I would have enjoyed more of, personally, but that’s not a legitimate criticism. Very quickly though, the deep resinous qualities start to come in, and with them, the scent really starts to subdue projection-wise. I think this is definitely one of my favorites scent-wise, but it does sit a little too close to the skin. Guess I should give a shot of overspraying it next time around.

Overall, I think the house has some really interesting, dense compositions that last a long time (the Lovers Tale meme is accurate). But, I’d gladly trade some of that density/longevity for more projection. I’m not clamoring for “beast mode” fragrances, but I generally want something I can smell without having to put my nose right on it, at least for the first couple hours.

Final ranking after one wearing of each (and sniffing all the atomizers again):
Etruscan Water > Lovers Tale > Tyger Tyger > Under My Skin > Lost in Heaven > The Black Knight > Angel’s Dust > Sex and the Sea Neroli > Dark Side > Sex and the Sea
>>
>>16190527
Also if you’re wondering why Dark Side fell so low, it’s because the drydown is chock full of scratchy norlimbanol, which I personally hate.

Also, also, thanks for reading my blog.

My Rive Gauche has landed! Some of what I had read about it led me to expect something more unisex-leaning, but this is feminine all the way through. It's a floral aldehydic, so I guess I shouldn't have expected otherwise. It smells real nice though. Like a bouquet of cold roses straight out of the freezer, with some musky/mossy notes lurking in the background. Cozy, powdery drydown. Looking forward to wearing it out, but I can't see it being part of my regular rotation. At least I have the fucking sick bottle now.
I also got samples of CdG Odeurs 53 and 71 and Montale Patchouli Leaves. On initial testing I like Odeur 53 more than 71, which is surprising because 71 has a light incense thing going on, and I love incense more than just about anything. 53 just feels so pure and clean, like super luxe fabric softener. Might have to be my scent of the summer.
I haven't tried Patchouli Leaves on skin yet, but on paper it smells exactly like Jovoy Psychedelique to me. Not a bad thing, but I'm looking for a less chocolatey patchouli right now.

>>16190974
All the fragrances you like are the usual mass pleasing ones.
Not to say that's bad but you have to try out lots and lots of shit.
If you're mainly wearing black, try Encre Noire for a start. It's a 10/10 for me.

Albeit you’re fucking retarded, let me fucking help. This a well-knowing feature of Aventus that one becomes noseblind to it. Ask fucking people around you if they can fucking smell it. And spray it fucking away from your fucking nose. Second, the bottle of fucking Aventus has to fucking macerate. In six months after one puts some air in the fucking bottle it becomes very fucking strong. This hobby is too much for you, you can’t even handle a purchase of a fragrance.

No man, theres something in Aventus (and for some reason Explorer too) that gives you anosmia. When I got my first sample I was disappointed for the same reason you mention, but eight hours later I got a couple of compliments and they told me that it smelled really strong.

Let me take you on a journey, friend. You’re on vacation in San Francisco, you return to your hotel but have forgotten your room number. You walk into the room of another guest by mistake. Immediately upon entering, you notice that a bunch of sweaty men are fucking on a bed shaped like a giant martini glass covered with sequins. YMCA is playing on a loop on the room’s sound system, a disco ball hangs from the ceiling, a large TV displays episodes of RuPaul’s Drag Race. John Waters is sitting on a chair in the corner sipping a cosmopolitan.

Ultra Male is gayer than that room.

If you're a young guy then go with Dior

Tayler of old bond street Sandalwood. It smells like old dust
>>
>>16191729
Probably Reflection, because most Amouage frags are fairly potent and Aventus isn't as strong as it used to be. Plus with Aventus you get batch variations.
That being said, Aventus still has pretty good longevity and projection
>>
>>16191733
Yes. It is loud, synthetic and the performance is nuclear. I bought it because it often gets compares to leather oud by Dior, which made me somewhat curious. I got rid of my bottle, I think it’s only worth it if you go for sleaze core look

Amouage. Aventus along with Acqua Di Gio and Sauvage have become cliche fragrances. Find a scent that doesn't make you blend in with the room.

>>16190961
Light Blue Intense is pretty good

>>16191645
They're all air fresheners. That's all they smell like.

>>16191177
Get the regular Le Male. It's less gay. It's a winter frag though in spite of the summer-looking bottle.

>>16190657
Eau De Toilette = less than 10% fragrance extract concentration
Eau De Parfum = 10% - 20% fragrance extract concentration
Extrait De Parfum = 20%+ fragrance extract concentration

Hopefully that'll help you find something stronger next time

People don’t wear Aventus because people don’t spend hundreds on a 50 mil fragrance.
It’s common, but not nearly as common as Sauvage etc..
>>
>>16192239
The quality is great, the prices are good and they are all generally good fragrances.
The problem is originality. Almost all of them smell like better versions of designer scents. If we’re talking pleasant „niche“ scents, Tom Ford, Creed and lots of others trump PdM. Tobacco Vanille, Aventus & co are original and recognisable. I clearly remember how TV smells, but I’ve forgotten how Layton smells.
>>
>>16192284
it's still the most common niche fragrance though
>>
>>16192319
Yeah by far.
But how many people actually wear niche fragrances?

So a guy caught me surfing this thread on my phone today at school and asked me what I was reading and stuff. I'm the only guy who wear cologne (every day) to my class. Any chance he's spreading the rumor about me being gay by now?
I'm not btw
>>
>>16192334
Gay rumors are a good thing. It means you're probably stylish and well-groomed. If any girl who might be interested in you buys into the gay rumors, then they'll be pleasantly surprised when it turns out to be untrue
>>
>>16192367
There’s a twisted logic to this. I was interested in a woman at work who had caught wind of a rumour I might be gay (well groomed, always smell nice, interest in fashion) and apparently she felt comfortable around me because I wasn’t interested in women. Because of that I got to know her quite well. We ended up going on a date. We weren’t right for each other and then I never spoke to her again. But the point is it sort of works.

Sorry to keep spamming about women's Rive Gauche, but I need to get this out somewhere. When I was wearing it yesterday I felt there was something really familiar about it that I couldn't quite place. It just hit me today that it smells exactly like my badass chain-smoking great aunt who died in 2008. You stepped into her apartment, and BAM--cigarettes and what I now realize was Rive Gauche. It makes sense because she totally embodied the 70s glam'd-out "indpendent woman" from this ad: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-k-SMhod7JY
So this stuff has just taken on a mystical quality for me.
Has anyone else experienced this, where you smell a distinct fragrance at one point in your life without knowing what it is, and then years later you discover what it was and it's incredibly satisfying/emotional? It's happened to me several times with music but never with fragrance

>>
>>16192561
The Shoyeido sticks pictured there are made using all natural, non-synthetic materials. These sticks are sandalwood-based and on the lower end of the cost spectrum, so the ingredients probably aren't of the highest quality, but they are very well-blended, subtle, and complex for their price (especially the White Cloud). Nippon Kodo uses more synthetic fragrance in their incense, usually to their detriment, though the Kayuragi Sandalwood pictured there is excellent. I have no idea about maceration of incense
>>
>>16192639
Assuming 12 sprays per ml and 5 sprays per use, this 9ml sample would be good for around 21 uses. Also assuming you'd not wear it every single day, you could make it last 2 months. Not terrible for $40. However the 100ml bottle of the Montblanc is around $40, so it's a question of quality over quantity.

I'm considering going to a fragrance shop after you bastards got me into this shit. I have quite the list of colognes I'd like to smell. Do you think I'd piss off the assistant? How many scents can I even preview before my sense of smell weakens?
>>
>>16192722
I think you should just explain to them that you're new to fragrance and would like to try a lot of things out. This used to be so much easier because they didn't have to physically pull everything out for you. I've had around 8 experiences sampling IRL since COVID hit. I think all except for maybe one or two have been extremely pleasant experiences. If you've done the homework, which it sounds like you have, it makes things easier because then you can have a more laidback conversation with the ladies/gays behind the counter, especially if they themselves are into fragrance. I think it just depends on the fragrances, but I've sampled like up to seven or eight in a setting and still been okay. I think that was probably near the upper limit for me. I don't sample that much every time, because usually there are a couple I really want to smell and then I'll see if the gal has any recommendations based on those.
>>
>>16192722
Testing on skin >>> testing on paperstrips. You could probably get away with testing 6 different fragrances on your skin per visit to the store, 3 per arm.
If you don’t want to spray so many different fragrances on you, make sure to take the paperstrips home with you to smell them later.

Presumably he was using voice to text. Or I hope he was. Isn’t that a Hemingway quote anyway?

>>16192722
I think they’d be more receptive if you went in with the intention of buying something. Not to say you should, but if they’re an independent place they’re probably more friendly and knowledgeable and would appreciate the custom after a year of lockdowns (at least here in the U.K.).

You can smell for a while but maybe have a break between, or start light and go to the heavier stuff. Trying to appreciate the subtleties of a delicate Cologne after Interlude Man is a fool’s errand.

If you go to a big department store or something they’re more interested in the usual sales talk and sounding like they just want your money so in that instance you have to either show you know your stuff or tell them you’re happy on your own and to just be left alone. The downside to department stores is how they’re sometimes more franchised, so the people you talk to will only know about Dior or Chanel, they won’t know about both. When Dior Homme was rereleased last year I went in to try it and the girl was giving me the usual marketing spiel and I mentioned I was intrigued because they got rid of the Iris. At that point she seemed to completely change and left “Dior Marketing” mode and actually had a conversation with her. I liked it but bought Fahrenheit instead.

Hmmmm what do you think about Fahrenheit?

>>
>>16192877
that's literally the reason they are there
>>
>>16192850
You’re exactly right, it being a love or hate fragrance is why you should try it. Put simply, there’s a reason it’s still sold all these years later with a formula authentic to the original. But it’s one to spend time with. I don’t know what you intend to try (maybe share your list here) but it might be a good idea to make it the last one you spray on skin and keep sniffing through the day. I absolutely understand why people dislike it, but I think it’s a masterpiece.

Seconding this, my initial impression was equally vivid and very similar, like a funeral on an old, mossy roving boat. That being said, I don't find it appropriate for any social occasion, it's really to be enjoyed as an artistic experiment.
>>
>>16192876
I only tried the EdP, so no comparison to the EDT (I think it is the only one that’s in stock, for under 100 usd per 100ml it’s more than worth it imo)

>>16192850
Fahrenheit EDT is a personal 10/10, the flankers are also worth a try (Cologne and Parfum)
I think you really can’t go wrong with any of Diors Standard offerings as your first Fragrance.
>>
>>16190527
Any chance you can repost your EW review? Might pull the trigger on it
>>
>>16192788
They'll have everything behind the counter, so it's basically unavoidable that you will have to make them spray it for you. Wear the mask until they spray the sample, and then, in my experience, it was pretty lax in terms of keeping the mask down while smelling and still talking about the fragrance. The ladies generally like talking about perfume, and they want to make a sale. So, they're not going to freak out about masking in between samples.
>>
they are not shipping my samplels :(
>>
>>16192968
cool, that's generally been my experience in people not really caring too much about the mask meme, i was just wondering if you encountered any dumb store regulations were they wouldn't let you sniff
>>
Question concerning musk oils/sprays, fragbros. Do you wear these on their own, or do you work them in with something else? I have Kiehl's EDT spray, which I like on its own. However, I've not really worn this out on its own. At home I've experimented with layering it with Caron Pour un Homme, which I found pleasant enough, but I'm not sure if it works enough to wear in public.
>>
>>16192989
They've generally been chill about it wherever I've gone, except the Le Labo store made me walk outside with my tester strips to smell them lol

Total newfag here, rate my cart, tell me what to add/what to remove/how should I kill myself.
I am a man. I think I want woody, and not particularly summery. I had a L'Occitane - Eau de Cade back in 2014 and liked it but I never fully took the fragrance pill and it seems to be discontinued now.

Should I just try to test them in person? or does it make sense to buy these samples?
>>
>>16193118
Remarkably unremarkable, but also an alright starting point. Try Tom Ford Oud Wood. It’s more woody and less summery than anything on your list.
>>
>>16193118
Add something from zoologist, squid or moth, or maybe deer, pick the one that sounds best to you
Also get a sample of mousse illuminee, its a fantastic sweet oakmoss green frag and worth trying.
>>
>>16193136
I forgot to add, yes, sample them if you’re not poor and can justify the expense. Obviously it’s a lot of money when you might not like them, but it will save you in the long run. Also it allows you to test them at your leisure. Sampling is far better than trying in store, just expensive.
>>
>>16193118
Are you actually willing to drop 300+ on a (first) fragrance? Otherwise there’s not much to be gained by sampling the expensive stuff if you just want to find something you like enough to get a full bottle off.

I’d drop Hermes TdH Parfum and Encre Noir from that list. Give Dior Homme 2020 a try
>>
>>16193136
>>16193142
>Remarkably unremarkable
this is what I feared, but thanks, I'll add Oud Wood.
I do have some disposable income. I just need to find one or two good fragrances, I don't want to start a collection. It is a bit inconvenient to try them at a store atm, I don't live near any and I can only try a couple before my sense of smell gets fatigued.

>>16193138
I couldn't find any of those in the UK website I'm using https://www.fragrancesamplesuk.com
there's always more selection in murica

>>16193177
fuark, I haven't even looked at the full bottle prices actually. I'd say I can drop around 100 if I reeeally like it, but ideally something cheaper to get started. which one costs 300?

It smells like inky vetiver and cypress.
Imagine the smell of a bottle of black ink for a fountain pen, mixed with plant roots and greens. And cypress up top.
The inky vetiver is pretty dark but the death references mostly come from the cypress I believe. Cypress has been associated with death and mourning since the antique.

You just admitted you have no idea what you're doing or talking about. Why do you think negging was so effective when PUA shit was first getting traction?

I don't care who the girl is, if you're too available and it's too easy for her she's going to fuck off and you're going to still be sitting there, tears lubricating your little beta dick, as you whine on an anonymous Tibetan basket weaving forum about how no girls want the nice guy.

Frankincense myrrh rosewater
Check out apothecary's garden on etsy, he has some awesome stuff for beard oil, get some absolutes and use those instead of essential oils, especially for frankincense since a bunch of the good stuff doesn't end up in the essential oil fraction.

Some other good things
https://www.etsy.com/listing/912383121/oleo-extract-of-madagascar-elemi-for
You should also add a small amount (around 1%) of vitamin e acetate or benzoin absolute to help keep the carrier oils you use from going rancid.
He also sells a few beard and mustache oils so you can copy what he uses in those. But frankincense myrrh and rose is a real classic combo that smells great.

>>16190394
>>16190394
>>16190394

>>16194164
His blog is also a fantastic resource, i think he recommends using absolutes at around 1 part to 5 parts carrier oil, so a rough blend would be 1/2 oz of frank absolute and 1/2 oz of myrrh absolute for every 5 oz of carrier oil combined in a double boiler on the stove. A few drops of rose essential oil, then thicken with beeswax untill you hit your desired texture, which you can test by dipping a room temp metal spoon in the hot oil and checking the texture off that back of the spoon. He also sells animal musks, if you are feeling brave you could add a single drop of civet oil. I think deer musk would be a better fit but he doesn't have any.
This guy has some tiny vials of it, you only need a single drop or two in a batch, it's really amazing stuff, it smells luxurious and warm and the scent lasts and lasts.
