From last thread: Need a good cheap frag for my gf, bday is coming soon and budget is around $50.

Got these today. Did anybody else not know about this White In Black release? Apparently it came out three months ago.

Only tested Encre Noire and Extreme so far.

Encre Noire:
Well this was disappointing. For one I don't really smell it unless I borrow my nose in my elbow pit (maybe because of the tester atomizer?). But the smell reminds me of something from my childhood, not sure what. To me it's weirdly... spicy. Hela Curry Ketchup comes to mind, for people who know. I don't associate it with woods or damp earth like most people were saying. Maybe it'll grow on me since I hated TdH at first too, but ehh. It's very one note, no development. TdH is just better than this in every way, get that instead.
4/10

Encre Noire Extreme:
This is better, but also underwhelming. The first minutes are interesting but all that just... disappears in a short time. The dry down is superior to Encre Noire, but it's mostly just smokey with nothing else, very one note. It doesn't have that spicy-ketchup note at least. I'd recommend this to try over Encre Noire for people on the fence.
6/10

Gonna test the other two tomorrow, I think I'm going to like them more.
>>
>>16378015
I didn’t care for Encre Noir or the Extreme flanker. Just my Personal taste, it’s a solid fragrance and has a lot of fans. I wish the scent clicked with me because the price is right.

Lads, I have never bought a fragrance in my life. I simply just don’t want to smell bad and need 1 fragrance I can wear forever every day to help me smell good or at least normal. Research is telling me that dior sauvage toilet edition is a safe bet, so should I pull the trigger and spend like $150 for the big bottle to last forever?

>Ngl your gf sounds pretty based
Do you really think that drinking water with every meal for a month just because she bought a fucking bottle of Jack and we can "only spend $50 a month on drinks" is based? Do you think living with someone thats too cheap to buy a bedframe but calls it "minimalistic" is based? Literally ALL her clothes are THRIFTED except for a Kate Spade dress I bought her. She doesn't even let me spend my own money without throwing a fit for fucks sake I took her to this French soup place in NYC and she got mad because the burger SHE ordered wasn't "as good as 5guys and double the price" yeah 5Guyes doesn't have FUCKING BISON BITCH. She has 3 perfumes and got all 3 of them at the discount aisle at Marshall's and 2 of them aren't even women's perfume. I know I'm ranting to strangers on the internet but God dammit if I didn't love her I'd left her a long time ago. I really feel like I don't love her sometimes. Being with her is so suffocating, not based at all. On a different note, SOTN: Silver Scent Pure.

to me it opens with a bit of a metallic scent and lots of raspberry, and settles later into the smell of well-kept antique leather

She's in birth control because "it's free" with her insurance. Started taking it 2 months into the relationship when she realize condoms were "too expensive" and she used to fuck me like a semen demon, like literally I'm usually a top and she was always on top, then boom, birth control, now she only wants to fuck on very, very whacky times.
>>16378404
Lmao, told her about kids once, ONCE. She went on for 2 hours on how the only way she'd had a kid with anyone is if they're they're millionaire because she's not sending kids to school, too scared of indoctrination. I kind of agreed with her on the matter a bit but she over reacts. And I don't think I can become a millionaire so there's no kids if I stay with her. Another reason I should leave her.

These are the frags that I bought this week.
Dior - Homme Intense; Maison Margiela - By the fireplace; D&G - The One Intense; Harry Lehmann - Oud

I REALLY like the Dior and MM, especially the smokiness of the MM.
I'll probably return the D&G, I think it smells good, but it's just too sweet - I chose it over the EDP at first, because I prefered the more intense (hey that's why they call it that) vanilla and wood notes.
There's a really good chance that none of you have heard of the last one as it's a very small, traditional perfumery; Their oud fragrance smells absolutely FANTASTIC, the oud works so well with the cinnamon and slight resinous notes, it also has some very slight hints of menthol, its performance is great, it's also very linear.
Harry Lehmann make some great fragrances, the best part is that they are really cheap; you buy the fragrances by weight, you pay, at most, 7€ per 10ml and 2€-4€ for the flacon (I paid like 40€ for this miracle juice!)

PART TWO

Ombre Noire:
This has that weird spice note of the original Encre Noire which I don't like. Supposedly this has no vetiver in it, so it's apparently something else? The notes other than that are pretty decent and it's not as boring as EN.
5/10

Lalique White In Black:
Why is NO ONE talking about this? I know it's a recent release, but how long does it usually take for people to catch on to something new?
This is by far my favorite of the samples, but I think for that same reason fans of Encre Noire might not like it (I don't know Laliques other their offerings like Lion, Equus etc, maybe they're on the sweeter side so those people might). It's a very pleasant, vanilla apple smell. The very second I put my nose on it a certain other fragrance immediately shot to mind - PDM Layton. It honestly feels like a clone but my nose is probably not sophisticated enough to tell apart the minute differences. The thing with this fragrance is, it's not cheap like Encre Noire. The cheapest retailer has it at 70€, some are even selling it at 100€ (125ml). I just put it on a bit ago so I can't comment on performance but some other reviews say it doesn't have great performance. Which begs the question, why buy this over Layton? You can pay a bit more and get the same smell together with fantastic performance. So I don't see a reason for its existence yet. For that reason my overall score is lower than what I would rate the scent alone. If it becomes cheaper in the future it might be a fantastic alternative for people who don't wanna spend the premium for PDM.
Scent 8.5/10
Overall 6.5/10

>tfw currently have covid and lost my sense of smell

STANDING, ON THE EDGE

>>16379332

>>
>>16379391

>>
>>16379334
>If you haven't had the Antibody Infusion yet I recommend it, it really helps with your recovery time
My actual symptoms are so minor that I don’t think I’d really need it, it’s just the loss of my sense of smell that’s bothering me. Its really odd how it hasn’t affected my ability to taste though, since I would’ve assumed those senses are really bound up with each other.
>>
>>16379332
>Why is NO ONE talking about this

Because new Laliques have very poor performance and they all boil down to boring ISO-E Super in the dry-down.
>>
>>16379299
>where the FUCK did you find an autistic and extremely stupid gf
College. Was getting bullied and laughed at behind her back for having ADHD and not shutting the fuck up and my stupid ass thought it'd be a good idea to date her so my protective male instincts could shut the fuck up. Do NOT pick up autistic gfs! Worst mistake of my life.

This scent fucks. If you ever, like me, feel like wearing some Sauvage-sque crowdpleaser but don't want to smell of a fucking, synthetic shower gel then this is a fragrance for you. It sits perfectly somewhere between niche and designer (it was created by the same guy who composed Ganymede and B683) and I got plenty of compliments from it. The price is also amazing: 72,00€ for 100ml and sometimes you can get it even cheaper on sales.

I someone wants Layton for cheap, he can try Boss Bottled EDP.

At first they smell different, but the dry-down is almost identical.

It's Boss Bottled Intense that's similar to Layton, not the original. But it also doesn't have as good performance and Lalique is most likely higher quality, not to mention the Boss has been discontinued.

Could be a mix of old and new batches out there. Time will tell. Would be retarded of them to do that though since the performance would be the only thing justifying the price.

I actually never liked Bottled before this EDP, but I have got a Bottled Oud, which is a good designer oud.

The EDP was really nice and sweet apple. I just had to buy it.

>>16379399
Yeah, same here.
No sense of smell, but I can still taste everything normally. And my symptoms were mild as well, but they didn't stay that way. I thought I could get over it myself like any old flu or cold, but it kept hanging on until it wore me down. 24 hours after that infusion and I felt like a different person. I still haven't regained my smell but otherwise I'm recovered from that nasty covid shit.

Snice collection anon, I like Bottled Oud too but it just doesn't suit the way I dress or present myself. I'm an autist who tries to tie their aesthetic into the scent I wear as cloesly as possible, purely to project an overall image but I digress.
Maybe I'll get it in a couple years from now when I have a buzzcut and dress a little more relaxed

100% clone of Interlude = White smoke of burning grass. It only has some nice top notes for the first 15 minutes, which the Interlude does not have.
>>
>>16379601

It is better to tie the scent to the weather. If it fits the weather, it will fit any outfit.

Bottled oud was nice when it was hot outside, because it was less bitter.

Parfums De Marly is the biggest joke fragrance house of all time. I laugh every time I see the “1743” imprinted on their bottles. They want to be Creed, but can barely make serviceable clones. Pitiful.

You're in high school right? You’re aware your brand is a clone house that has existed since 2009?

Parfums De Marly does only one thing better than Creed, astroturfing. They pay youtubers to shill their brand and have been caught at it.

The scents themselves are exaggerated designer clones. No subtlety or creativity. Just loud cloying scents for teenagers.

Snice numbers but you're wrong. Creed is not the king of niche but rather the most aggressive marketing-wise brand somewhere between designer and niche. Aventus is also not their best scent by far. Bois du Portugal, Silver Mountain Water and Green Irish Tweed are (albeit they're no 10/10 anyways but solid 8s).

You are having some delusions of grandeur. 0.0001% of population knows about the existence of Parfums de Marly. In West they literally target through YouTube the same audience who is googling "The best outfits to get laid", "how to improve my tinder profile", "most complimented fragrances" and some PUA bullshit: i.e. average Joes with no personality who can't really get laid but for god knows what reason believe that they should and think that spraying some overpriced smelly water recommended on youtube will help them achieve this goal. That's the target of PdM in the West. At least Creed targets nouveau riches instead of these insufferable egomaniacal incel types.

Tbf I'm pretty sure that Le Labo, Diptyque and Byredo are all way bigger than Creed right now. Literally every instainfluencer is shilling them to girls and I've met many who treat these frags as status symbols of sorts necessary for their #aesthetic #minimal insta lifestyles.
>Overall their scents are decent but unremarkable

Just blind bought this as well for the poppers connotation and slick case, it's actually pretty nice, the purposeful vinyl/plastic note gives it a kind of weird addictive quality.

I've done poppers a long time ago and the opening does kind of smell like Rush head cleaner.
>>
>>16379864
Good work, Baguette. What are your samples?
>>
>>16379868
>This is him
Smells really similar to a Z&V shop which is okay since it's not a very widely known scent, a bit to peperry tho but the late incense and vanilla is nice, good thing it's cheap.

>Avignon
Really good when it was raining and the weather was cooler, smells like a cathedral.

>Bleu de channel
Kinda boring and soapy, smells a bit like my barber shop or hair cutting salon or whatever it's called in english. Very versatile people aren't lying about that.

>Pour un homme
Smells like vanilla (musky) and then switch to lavender, absolutely fantastic, kinda creamy so it can become a bit cloying above 27 °C

>Montblanc Explorer
Bought it because of Aventus, i have no strong opinion on it, it's okay i guess

>L'homme ideal cool
Starts fresh with mint then some almond, i like it, it's my wear for tomorrow.
>>
>>16379871
>Terre d'hermes
Doesn't last long enough unfortunately

>Mont blanc Explorer Ultra blue
Haven't wore it, it smells nice and fresh but i bought the original explorer instead for aventus reasons.

>Costa Azzura
Haven't actually used it either, it smells nice, i'll probably use the sample latter this summer but it's not on my buy list.

>L'homme ideal EDP
It's a cherry bomb with almond as well, like the other Hommes Idéaux, it's on my buy list but it can wait since it's not ideal for the current heat.

It was counter culture back then because it was the opposite of how marketing said it was supposed to be done, wearing women’s fragrances isn’t fundamentally based. You have to think variable not constant.

I have both of those. Musc Ravageur is one of the best ever, but get a reasonably sized sample. I had 2ml and liked it, but wasn’t blown away. A few months passed and I had a strange urge to go back to it. I got another sample and I just knew I had to buy it. Got 100ml and every time I wear it it’s like a special event.

PoaL is also really, really good. Perhaps a little too jammy and powdery for some, and I think it definitely leans feminine, but not as much as some people suggest so you have to be comfortable wearing that kind of thing. It’s a modern masterpiece. Ropion and florals is a match made in heaven.

Speaking of women's perfume, I bought Clinique Aromatics Elixir a couple months ago (yes, because of the Perfume Nationalist). At first I thought it was just interesting, but after several weeks of semi-regular wear I can confirm that it is very addictive and borderline magical. Like a constantly morphing green forest floor with a soapy/floral background glow. I wore it during sex for the first time last night and my gf buried her head in my chest and remarked about how good I smelled (the only other frags to get a similar reaction are Guerlain Heritage and Opium EDT).
Basically if you're at all interested in chypres or perfumes that expand your mind, you need to get a bottle Aromatics. I'm about to cop the lotion and body wash so I can dig further into this magic forest zone

So my sister got my dad Polo Red and Armani Code for a present. He called me up and said “anon, where did your sister get these colognes? I wanna return them”. So I’m like “why? They’re good, dad.” “No, anon. Armani Code’s too strong. I had it before blah blah blah”

Why doesn’t my dad like good shit? He’s never happy with what we give him. So ungrateful.
