What tips do you guys have to enhance projection on your fragrances? I'm going to a concert in some time and I wanna be able to project really hard
>>17011843besides the typical "pulse points" and back of the neck just make sure to get some on the fabric of what you're wearing, which tends to carry the scent longer. I'll do behind the ears, back of neck, wrists, and then the "collar area" even if the shirt has no collar.

>>17011843overspray, bring an atomizer to re-apply, spray it on people around you to franchise the scent
Why the fuck does this stuff have to work so well on women? I could wear some of the more interesting stuff I own on dates, but why do that when girls get one whiff of this and get sucked in? Of all the niche and pricey bottles I own, I'd probably choose this stuff if I had to keep only one. Goddamnit.
Sampled Encre Noire AL from 2020 against my 2022 batch, and mine is honestly better. Old one has an ever so slightly more bergamotty opening which I attribute to maceration, but after that my batch smells more distinct and intense in every note. I could identify it blindly every time.Maybe I'm just not very receptive to Iso E, because anons here said their 2020/21 ENALs were strong. Mine lasts long enough, but does not project much at all after the first hour or so. Applying it on clothes helps though.>>17011843I've discovered that the best way to make a scent last long is to drench the fibres of one's clothes with it, as opposed to spraying it on the clothes surficially. So get the vaporizer close to the fabric and spray a good 4-6 times to soak the spot through. I've managed to make even cheap shit frags that last 15 minutes on skin last for hours with this. Fairly good projection too, but you can add surficial and skin/hair sprays to increase projection intensity.

Haha this is pretty good for 15 eurAny other below 20 gems?
>2020 RevisionWill there be a new one? Is there even such a thing as "out" fragrance? Don't know what to get because I'm as knowledgeable as a neanderthal when it comes to fragrance, probably can't differentiate $$$ designer from 90 cents discounter, but others can. Here's what I need. Location is central EU, age 25, budget should stay below 300-400 total but the cheaper the better. Fragrance for spring to fall with emphasis on summer, I'll get others for colder days. 1. Instant C-level promotion scent for business settings.2. Instant panties off for friday nights. 3.

>>17011985those do not last so don't bother. you can buy a frag and some houses offer a body spray or deodorant with it. in my experience, those deodorants aren't good at doing their job of bein deodorants, though. not worth it.
>>17011917this to be honest familySOTD: Light Blue Discover Vulcano
>>17011923It works so well for the same reason why most people would rather listen to Schubert than Stockhausen. Not every woman is as autistic about scents as the average niche consoomer here. They have definitely smelled it before in a nice restaurant or on some other attractive guy so there is a unconscious association.
craving a warm weather cheapie... which of these should I cop:>Encre Noire Sport (I like Grey Vetiver but not a fan of aquatics)>Versace Dreamer (not sure if ideal for warm weather)>Drakkar Noir (not sure if ideal for warm weather)
>>17012083Dreamer and Drakkar are not your typical warm weather scent, at all. Neither is Encre Sport to be fair.Suggestions: Jeanne en Provence Neroli Intense, Lalique White, Montblanc Legend Spirit, Franck Olivier Sunrise Vetiver, Banana Republic Neroli Woods.
>>17012112>Dreamer and Drakkar are not your typical warm weather scent, at all. Neither is Encre Sport to be fair.I know, I find most typical freshies boring. I do have Neroli Intense already. I'll definitely check out Sunrise Vetiver, been looking for a cheaper alternative to Grey Vetiver
>>17011973Neroli Intense. It's below 10EUR.
Ok /frag whats your favorite release from 2022 or what are you looking forward to in the future?And of course, what's the SOTD?>SOTD: Roja elysium I'm looking forward to trying kimono vert. I love green natural smelling scents and it looks really cool. Hopefully it isn't too floral.
>>17012223I'm looking forward to more flanker releases with questionable longevity and sillage and my favorite release is one of the flankers with questionable longevity and sillage but insane profit margin.Market caps for the big designer houses are insane and my investments must pay out.
Is cardamom considered a gourmand note? Because to me it smells like some thick sweet cream, like mascarpone or something.Boss Bottled EDP and Le Male Le Parfum both are cardamom gourmand bombs and I for one don't like it, but I'm curious whether there's some frags that use cardamom in a less "delicious" and more interesting way. Some niche cardamoms?
>>17012248Voyage d'Hermes Parfum is all about non-sweet, fresh cardamom, great even in the summer. Declaration also has quite a bit of fresh cardamom

Aight boys, I haven't sniffed many frags but I'm still convinced of what to buy as my first and only perfume for a while, that being Fahrenheit Dior Eau de toilette.I have a few questions:>which bad batch/years should I look out for? >what is considered a good deal for a 100 ml bottle? No rare years/batches>which site usually has the lowest prices inlcuding shipping?>is buying used recommended? Where to?>will it be too much to wear it everyday? Should I only use it when i go out at night?>how about its sillage? How long does edp Fahrenheit lasts? I don't want to buy something no one will smell.Any other advices on how much and where to wear this particular fragrance is welcome.
>>17012294>not usedWhy would you feel the need to clarify
Fragrances always seem to wear off quite quickly, even edp/real p fragrances which are reviewed to last longer (e.g. Eau de Sauvage EDP). Is this just my mind fucking with me, or could there be something I'm doing wrong?
>>17012352Either you go noseblind or you're not applying enough. I recommend 40 sprays. If you can't smell it then, at least you know you're just noseblind.
Sup /frag/I got a nice raise this week so I’m gonna treat myself to a new bottle this weekend. Looking for something summery and citrusy to round out my collection a little since a lot of my scents are more on the autumn/winter side. I’m probably gonna go to Sephora and try some samples there, but I’m wondering if I could get some recommendations to start me off.

77 euros (79$) with free shipping for a new 100 ml Fahrenheit EDT is a great deal, is it not? Should I cop?(Dior is discounting 30% off of everything online)
>>17011925>Maybe I'm just not very receptive to Iso E, because anons here said their 2020/21 ENALs were strong. Mine lasts long enough, but does not project much at all after the first hour or so. Applying it on clothes helps though.I can absolutely smell iso e for a long time after application but to me what makes my bottle of AL so strong is some synthetic amber base note, i know there are quite a few uber strong ambers that have been introduced or become in the last 10 years and and i can't tell you which one it is but that's what i notice, i don't think it's more iso e super. Who knows, im retarted so maybe I'm completely wrong, but my other iso e super bomb fragrances dont smell anything like that amber note

>>17012083L’Eau d’Issey Pour Homme SportCalled a sport frag, secretly leatherLapidus Pour Homme SportWhite floral bomb, amazing frag that is complelty under the radar and cheap
>>17011828Why does H24 smell like a cheap melon body spray from bed bath and bodyworks lol Dior Homme Cologne smells like Dove Soap and lemonade
>>17012330From what ive read the modern formula is the best that it has been since the 90s so unless you feel like overpaying for a dusty old bottle you should walk into a store and buy one. Or get one from the big (thousands of sales) perfume dealers on ebay.Don't overthink it. If you get a slightly older bottle it will just have a bit more vanilla.
>>17012451Dior Homme Sport 2017 is literally just Chanel Allure Homme Sport. Is 2021 like that too? I meant to buy that version
>>17012454I can't find anything on ebay, is 70 bucks alright for a 100ml?
>>17012413>>1701247270 bucks is completely alright for 100ml Fahrenheit EDT. Outstanding scent, and I can attest that the modern formulation (2021+) is good and truer to the original than earlier formulations have been.You won't often find Dior at a steep discount, it and Chanel are pretty much the royalty of the designer bracket (Guerlain and Caron are kings though).
I usually go Dolce & Gabanna light blue or Polo Blue by Ralph & Lauren. Use one of those two colognes for my clothes, neck, and hair. I then pair it w/ a cheaper and muskier cologne like Brut and use that to spritz my wrist, abdomen, and chest. I found that the lighter aroma from a well created perfume paired with a grittier and harder perfume out of a cheaper bottle gives you a really attractive aroma without risking the perception of being too booshy/feminine.
>>17012489just ordered it, off a reputable fragrances online shop in EU. They usually sell you the newest batch from the last year, right? they won't send me something from 2018 right? Should I email them to make sure or am I being paranoid?
Another beautiful sunny day to wear beau de jour
>>17012518Don't overthink it, they arent going to have 5 year old bottles sitting around
>>17012438AL's late drydown for me (both batches) is a magnificent creek scent, mossy rotten wood and wet earth, some sweet and resinous qualities remain. Definitely not strong though. I can get more projection if I soak wool with it, but even then I can't say it fills a room. And sometimes I mostly smell some salty-sour-synthetic patchouli in the drydown, especially on skin. Probably caused by sniffing it too much.The EN line is odd to me. Sometimes they are wonderful, other times I can barely smell them. Really easy to grow noseblind to them for me, it's gotta be some Iso E wizardry. I have stuff like Terre and Fahrenheit too, so I'm familiar with Iso E-heavy frags, and while Terre can be a bit difficult to perceive for me on myself as well, it's not as much of a problem as it is with EN. I think Iso E is just a weird molecule, more volatile with regard to temperature, interacts with body chemistry and olfactory senses as well as other scent molecules in weird ways. It also changes the way I perceive other frags, such as when I alternate between smelling the different ENs.EN Sport is the weirdest one for me. I don't get all the associations I read online with it whatsoever, for now it smells mostly of a synthetic aquatic accord to me, not much of anything else apart from some citrus in the opening. The forest is nowhere to be smelled. Original EN is a strong and constant blast of cypress, it smells like biting down on cypress must taste, very bitter, green, spicy, but in an interesting way. But then sometimes I'm completely blind to the cypress in it, and I don't perceive the scent at all. Yet other times I distinctly smell the dry, scorched-earthy vetiver very similar to AL's, but that's not something I usually smell with the original at all, usually it's just a powerfully green cypress with vetiver at most sharpening it. I like it, it's unique and intriguing, but it's not at all this dark, heavy, gothy, necrotic scent I've seen it made out to be either.
>>17012677I'm really rather new to the ENs though, and I've seen a fair few people report coming around to them with time, different seasons, maceration, ... Same with Terre. Just something about Iso E-centric compositions that takes a while to get them. I should probably have someone else spray them in a different room from me and then smell them after letting them settle for a moment - I think the initial blow of Iso E molecules just completely overwhelms or numbs my senses to it for quite a while. If I leave them alone for a bit I usually start being more susceptible to their charms again. ENS is still strange, but I'll keep trying.
>>17012440>longer lasting>mintyfraid notyou can try Eau de Menthe by Dyptique, You or Someone Like You by ELDO or that one minty frag by Heely that I can't remember the name of, but the performance won't be greatmost other frags I can think of may have mint in the opening, but it fades rather quickly

finally tried pic related, if you're looking for a realistic citrusy frag with some ever so slightly balsamic herbs and spices on the bottom you ought to try it outit's pretty much like Light Blue Forever, but the realistic grapefruit juice accord fades a bit quicker and it's complemented by an equally convincing smokey sage note

Very new to fragrances and I'll probably never be an aficionado either, just looking for some kind of entry to the vast world of scents and if I'm lucky finding something that suits me. If I were to find something good, I'd be okay spending some money on that. Problem is I don't really know what I even like (fuck going to perfume stores, I hate them), so I went ahead and bought some samples, hoping to get a broad spectrum of different types. I would have tried more obvious choices (Chanel, Hermès, Dior) but the selection was somewhat limited to more niche brands.

This is pretty good. Never smelled Pure Havane which this is supposed to smell almost identical to.
Opinions? What is the consensus towards it?
imagine this, you're a harem slave girl in the abbasid caliphate, the caliph comes to visit your chambers in the evening, he takes your head in his hands and presses your nose firmly to his ballsack.Give me a fragrance to match this.
>>17013467All Ck frags are garbage
Anyone got any recommendations for a frag that blends both Vetiver and aquatic notes (possibly citrus as well) without smelling too feminine? There's Armani Prive Vetiver but that's much too expensive for me despite smelling nice.

>>17013380Honestly I have yet to find a summer scent I truly love. I mostly use Neroli Intense by Jeanne en Provence right now (very cheap and decent lasting citrus and soapy white floral scent) and occasionally Terre d'Hermes.

>>17014415and remember the fresher the better
>>17014421Eh not really, ive heard deer musk grains should be tinctured relatively quickly, but most of this other stuff is better aged.
>>17014291have you tried Joviy Psychedelique? that stuff is beastly
>>17014424trust me. There is a reason japs fucked up those whales real quick
If you like grapefruit, try this from Zara.
Went to a frag store today and got the chance to sniff some of the Dior lines.Kek at the Eau Sauvage Parfum shilling, it had that underlying sweetness like Beau de Jour. Then i sniffed Eau Sauvage Extreme and that one lacks the sweetness, a good woody fougere, the citruses are also toned down here.Top notch is Fahrenheit, it's floral, you get the freshness of the violet leaf with the leathery twist. Comparing Fahrenheit to CdG Garage or Tar, the petrol note is very weak, almost non existent. Probably something that vintage bottles will have.Sniffed also recent formulation of Cool water, imho it's still great, it's much more aquatic to the vintage bottles. Vintage CW is literally Green Irish Tweed minus the sweet powdery notes.
>>17014291Maybe Amoauge Enclave
It's a warm night lads, hitting the club in a few hours. I think it's too warm for Tuscan leather. Ideas?>aims>get some tongue kissing from a girl aged 16-24>get my wee wee sucked by her
>>17014484>16Pedos get the rope
>>17014484That robot frag from paco rabanne ,phantomThat Carolina Herrera frag that's in a skateboard bottle, pic relatedYes they are both sweet and youthful, you are trying to pick up teens right?
>>17014494Huh? The age of consent here is 16 plus. You seem confused. Is this American imperialism at work? Lol.
>>17014494better don't check age of consent in japan and germany
>>17014496Mainly yeah, but based on the fact most of the club girls will be that age. I certainly would not turn down some massive boobed 60 year gilf if she came along though.
>>17014501Phantom if it's not tooo hot out, 212 heroes if it's really hot out, should be able to get either in any shoppe that smells mainstream designer smelly water
>>17014505I'm 40 btw, if that matters. Just in case some frags might seem too young for me.

>>17014449>Kek at the Eau Sauvage Parfum shilling, it had that underlying sweetness like Beau de Jour. Then i sniffed Eau Sauvage Extreme and that one lacks the sweetness, a good woody fougere, the citruses are also toned down here.my thoughts exactly, I tried Eau Sauvage Parfum and was also disappointed at the sweet, powdery, vanilic nature of itthe Extreme is definitely better, though not all that uniqueFahrenheit and Dior Homme Parfum remain my favorite Dior frags after all
>>17014509Fuck okayChanel Allure Homme Sport Eau ExtremeMaybe if you can pull it off Chanel Antaeus But the first one will do you good if the other stuff i suggested smells too young
>>17013949Getting into frags and this is the best thing I've smelled yet. My go to scent for summer.
>>17014509Tamarindo and Iberian Leather from memo
Best fagrantica review i have seen all week
>>17014520Dior Homme Parfum is indeed great, i like 2020 too, it lacks the iris and it's fresher. But the OG line with iris is much more unique.
>>17011828So I'm beginning to appreciate the new drakkar noir bottle.However, the dry down is... idk kinda weird and not as pleasant as the opening.This is still not something i'd wear in spring or summer, it's pretty dark and depressing idk why, maybe due to no sweetness. But then again i really like my encre noire even though that has no sweetness either.
>mail from Parfumo>someone wrote a new review about a frag that I own>open review>massive wall of text>close reviewwhy
>>17014364That happened to me with Davidoff Zino. Completely different on skin.
>>17014565Funny how people differently interpret scents. Drakkar Noir is for me one of the most alpha scents, i love the mossy, green, citrusy DNA. But not with recent formulations, the vintage one or clones with huge sillage are dope. Really boost my confidence.
>>17014630Can you give me a comparison of the new vs vintage formulation?In the new formulation all i get is this a bit damp, depressing lavender, soapiness to offset the darkness and some leather accord with a bit of wormwood?I don't get any pine notes, green notes nor any oakmoss(this one obvious).
>>17012997picrel. Platinum Egoiste and Bleu De Chanel Parfum are close runner-ups
>>17014664Try Al Rehab Dakar to get how the vintage smelled like. Maybe they reformulated Drakkar Noir again? My bottle fairly new bottle is from 2020.
>>17014664...and yes, my 2020 bottle is somewhat thin smelling compared to the vintage. You get some lavender soapiness, with leather and citruses, but the backbone of the scent isn't there. Probably the oakmoss.
>>17014484Hi Cecil>>17014494>16>pedoFuck off to reddit, virtue signaling faggot
>>17014494Go fuck a dried up milf you gerontophiliac freak.
>>17014525I sampled around 20 summer frags both niche and designer and it was my favorite as well. I was recommended to try Atelier Vetiver Fatal which I did and it doesn't come close to the scent of Bal d'afrique.
>>17011843You sound like a horrible person
>>17014688>>17014693honestly I've only tried the modern stuff and I feel like I would like it less if it had way more oakmossis Dakar the same scent with steonger performance or is it super different?
>>17014158boundless is delicious
>>17014760If you don't like a frag don't bother chasing down a vintage bottle, it's never worth the effort unless you love the modern version, as tweaked and weakened as the modern version might be its still going to hit the same notes, like if you aren't enjoying the lavender a vintage bottle is going to hit those notes even harder if anything.
>>17014822delcious? there exists gourmand amouage?
>>17014760It's the same DNA like Drakkar Noir, but fuller, greener, more moss, less leathery.
>>17014675I have heard good about Acqua di Parma products but is it true that they have weakish performance / not long lasting?
>>17014932It depends on the specific fragranceAs always you should sample before buying bottles
>>17014932I've used Colonia and it isn't very strong or long lasting, at least in my experience.
>>17014932Yeah, ADP in general doesn’t last for too long, especially the classic ColoniasCipresso lasts a little longer on me, about 6 hours. If you want to smell it all day long then be ready to reapply
>>17014932Colonia Pura lasts well. Essenza, Oud and Quercia too.
Grabbed Azzaro Pour Homme today. Smells absolutely amazing. Fougere is the future!
>>17012997My signature scent used to be MB Club Black but now it's Ombre Leather. Although if I'm not wearing a leather jacket I'll try and wear a different scent every day. I've been wearing CH Bad Boy Le Parfum quite often since I bought it last week though. Smoky, leathery, and potent.
>>17014694...he said signaling his own sad, pathetic virtues.
Damn looks like Eugen's addiction cost him his marriage.
>>17014721Nice, looking for something in the same vein.
today's haul. gf got them for me from the store she works at. no idea why she told them to gift wrap the frederic malle one kek (it's french lover)
>>17014494geriatric redditor moment
>>17015379>no idea why she told them to gift wrap the frederic malle one kekMaybe because she loves you? You don't deserve her, I'm boutta sweep in.Be sure to let us know what you think of the frags.
>>17015417heh fair enough anon - it is cool they do their own little branded gift wrapping.All of them I really liked when I got sample vials but it was hard to choose what I'd get from each brand (I wanted to limit myself to one of each brand). Was tossing up between French Lover and Musc Ravageur for example.So far I'm a big fan of the fig note I get from Pulp - it reminds me a lot of Fico Di Amalfi by AdP. Tbh if I didn't have my GF grabbing this for me at a steep discount I would probably prefer fico di amalfi over Pulp for the price.
Finally got round to ordering Bois Imperial. Will share my potential disappointment when it arrives
Applied Le Male Le Parfum one spray on my wrist two days ago, have since then been sporting outside, worked out, showered thoroughly, washed my hands multiple times, and I can still smell it. And it's the wrist that rubs over my mousepad constantly at that (my mousepad doesn't smell of it).Why can't all perfumes be this crazy. Granted, it's only a subdued cardamom and vanillic sweetness that's left, but it's still a far cry from other stuff.
>>17015307dude is spending his kids' college funds on fragrances lol, and he's buying full bottles of stuff he hates or doesnt care about at all
>>17014494>SHE WAS 15 YEARS AND 364 DAYS OLD YOU SICK FUCK
>>17015498Dior Homme Parfum also has this effect of lasting for days as a skin scent
>>17015493Did you order the sample set or a full bottle?Because they give you a discount on a full bottle after you buy the sample set, so if BI is not the fragrance for you, but you like one of the other ones, you can buy a full bottle of that instead and get that discount.In case you blind-bought a full bottle of BI:Good luck. I purchased the 10 mL one and it was a disappointment. Should have bought the sample set.

What's the most original and rich coffee frag in your opinion, guys?
>>17015697Awake by Akro
Bought my first fragrance yesterday, good old Gio white. While most anons will find this a boring NPC frag it just werks, thanks for the help. Also thinking about getting something to complement the Gio for leisure time, clubs, dates etc in hot climate (will take on business trips and vacations). What's a good starting point for exclusively hot day night time frags for mid 20s guys?Thought about trying spice bomb but it's recommend for colder days/climate. Woman (older) at the store recommend me the new Zadig & Voltaire Vibes of Freedom but idk how trustworthy store personel and especially older women are.
>>17015893Almost everything in a designer fragrance stire will smell good to most people, professionals design them specifically to smell good to most peope, judt pick something you like. It's a real challenge to go to a upmarket store and buy a fragrance that will make people turn their nose up at you. The clerks usually suggest what they like, or random shit because they know it barely mattersSniff a few, sray the 2 you like the most, one on each arm, walk around for 1/2 but the one that you like more.
>>17015893idk about the new zadig & voltaire, but "this is him" is excellent, great if you want a more sensual night out type frag or something for colder weather
>>17012894>>17012904Same anon here,bought Chanel Blue EDP yesterday based on this post >>17012902The lady at the counter gave me a bunch of free samples:>Dior Homme EDT>Terre D'Hermes EDP>Acqua Di Gio EDP>The Perfumits Out in the Storm EDPWhat did she mean by this?
>>17015968she meant "here, try some more entry level stuff">>17015968>The Perfumits Out in the Storm EDPno idea wtf this is tho
>>17015914NPCs need to be culled. Anyway, if it's that easy I just go with NPC designer brand xyz. >>17015957Idk how to describe it but to me it's kind of fresh /summery while having some sweet/floral and woody/spicy notes? Do take this description with a grain of salt, I have zero idea of terminology. I can differentiate burning cables from axe body spray..
>>17015893>Also thinking about getting something to complement the Gio for leisure time, clubs, dates etc in hot climateBleu de Chanel edp
Are Sea Salt Sprays /frag/? I tried this but the smell, although good, lingers for days and multiple showers. Is it bad for the hair?
>>17015974>The PerfumitsMean to type "The Perfumist", most likely a cheap brand from the store itself.
>>17015988>The PerfumitsSounds like a one hit wonder doo wop band from the 60's..
I made an order on fragrancenet's Mexican website on the 6th, I got the tracking number on the 9th but this whole week there has been no update on shipping.is this normal for that website? or rather its Americam counterpart.
>>17016162They are slow to ship. You get what you pay for. Probably you’ll get an update Monday
This is the summer king holy fuck.
>>17015988Why not "The Perfumites" ?
>>17016199Why not The Saggy Gaping Asshole Filled with Smelly Liquids?
>>17012330I recently just got the EDT 50ml one for 80€, sadly prices are high in my country but the smell is still worth it. probably one of the best smells I have ever smelled. I havent tried perfume version yet, I have heard it smells somewhat better and is also stronger. if I buy one one day then I will use EDT in spring and summer and the perfume in autumn and winter
>>17012997did he really use that? is it good?
>>17015986How its the product? i have mid lenght hait and i want to try a sea salt spray
>>17016234>did he really use that?no, but if you watch the movie you can see that on his shelf he has YSL Pour Homme, so we assume that's the one the character wears.>is it good?yes, it's a good fragrance if you like old school fougere, same smell as Davidoff Zino.
>>17016254is that caron pour un homme on the lower shelf?
>>17016229Try Lalique Hommage a L'Homme.It can be found for 11-20€. I bought it on notino for 11€. It is very similar to D.F and of a similar quality, perhaps a little less intense.
>>17016262good eye, it's the after shave with the black cap
>>17016265Different anon. Never tried D.F. but I've got a bottle of Hommage a L'Homme and can confirm it's a pretty nice scent.Absolutely violet and powdery
>>17015983>Bleu de Chanel edpWill try the next time I'm in store.
>>17016229The perfume just has a bunch of vanilla added to it, its much more generic and less exciting
Don't be that guy: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=0HsIYnjiMLQ>avoid Sauvage, Eros, G&B The One, Aventus, Spicebomb, Reflection Man, Profumo
>>17016185Oolong tea? I love drinking Oolong tea but I never know people actually like the smell of Oolong tea.

>>17016403it's an amazing freshie
>>17016415>found the simp overspraying Sauvage, while waiting desperately for a whatsapp message from his crush
>>17015893Vibes of Freedom is vile, I have a small sample that came with an order of mine. 0/10 would not recommend, very generic, almost drug store tier fragrance.>>17015968Based decision. Anyway, Dior Homme, Terre d'Hermes and Acqua di Gio are very good starter fragrances to figure out what you like. Maybe you like woody frags, vetiver or aquatics, and you might find out that way.
>>17016254I think the top left gray bottle is Oscar de la renta
>glass atomizers from aliexpress finally arrivedThank you china for your cheap shitNow I can easily re-apply and smell fresh all day
does anyone follow this old broad? i like her channelhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h5pVVKgg0ho
>>17015968terre d'hermes is the most interesting of these, though I haven't tried the last one
why do they do this?
Hey everyone, I'm a newbie just getting acquainted with some of the basics of the fragrance game. 24 year old maleRight now what I have is Dior Homme (as far as I know it's the 2020 version that I have) and Chanel Allure Homme Sport. I like both of them, Dior Homme feels more loungey, evening and romantic, while Chanel Allure Homme Sport seems to be way more casual and fresher, not too distracting and fitting for everyday use. I was wondering where these fragrances are placed in categories like these >>17011830 so I would have a better understanding of what to expect. Which ones are similar to the ones I've mentioned? Also of course I've taken note of the flowchart >>17011833 but wondered if something else could be recommended to someone like me.Also is it just me or smelling sprayed testing strips at stores can be misleading sometimes? I've just recently begun trying out scents at stores and it's always really hard to judge fragrances just by using those paper strips. I'm wondering if just ordering assorted testing kits would be a better strategy to figure out what you like. Are there any other strategies?
>>17016496just enjoy your youth and buy all the hyped sweet frags come back here when youre bitter balding burnt out from clown world and alone
>>17016496I'm a middle aged millennial with the taste of stinky and non mass pleasing niche fragrance. I really enjoy Dior Homme 2020 over intense or OG Homme. It's fresh but with a likeable twist. Different with Sauvage: screechy citruses, without any interesting edges.
>>17016496Dior Homme 2020 is a woody frag. It has the most in common with Terre d'Hermes and Molecule 01 as far as frags on the chart go, since it also contains a shitton of Iso E Super
>>17016505yeah DH2020 is definitely better than Sauvage. I still prefer Intense and Parfum from that line though
>>17016496>Also is it just me or smelling sprayed testing strips at stores can be misleading sometimesIt can be, your skin chemistry and the weather you wear it in can change a fragrance's overall scent. You can get a good idea of what a frag is like on a tester strip but testing it on your skin is much better to help you make a decision on it.
>>17016510Agree, Parfum is still great with the iris.
>>17016505Yeah, I don't have much knowledge in the area but I like that Dior Homme feels kind of subtle and suave but not entirely predictable.
>>170164961. test strips are an absolute meme, skin is king you can test out 4 frags at once, by spraying a bit above the wrist on both hands and near the inner side of the elbow.2. allure homme sport is fresh aquatic / citrus and homme 2020 would be some sort of a chypre I think?3. moisturize properly before spraying shit on your skin to get the full experience and much better longevityI would recommend you get something a bit heavier / sweeter, some cheap stuff to look out for would be:Ultra Male, Le Beau, Le Male Le Parfum from JPGStronger With You, Stronger With You Absolutely, Stronger With You Intensely, Code Profumo, Code Absolu from armani
>>17016234>is it good?I think it's genuinely fantastic
>>17015664Whats in the box?

>>17016796Because Sneed Amogus didn't use to cost that much.
Do you guys have any fragance that actually calms you and feel less anxious?
>>17011828Is smelling frags even safe? Are reformulations take care of keeping out nasty stuff off our skin or they can pretty much do whatever the fuck they want, damaging our health?
>>17016834Gout. It's a buildup of urea crystals in the joints of the foot, the crystals are very sharp, it's quite painful from what ive read. I was just wondering how you were coping with it.
>>17016510The dry down of DH2020 is pretty flat. It kind of smells like baby wipes. I like the opening of DH2020 more than sausage, but the dry down isn't very good.
>>17016855I spray scented alcohol over the affected area and it dissolves the crystals.
>>17016844Both synthetic and "natural" frags are completely filled with chemicals which will be found over the next 100 years to cause cancer, fuck with hormone levels, cause outher disregulation issues and god knows what else. Do with that knowledge what you will.
>>17016844Is anything ever safe? There's no way not to die (yet), so I choose hedonism over a long but boring life.
>>17016864Wow that's amazing?!?
>>17016400>guys don't wear anything that smells good! you are a simp if you want to smell good, buy literal dog shit smells guys, it's so based!
>>17016865the thing is that i kinda don't know. My mom likes fragrances and i also have a couple of bottles but the thought of selling all of this bc some of this stuff maybe be bad for me is just making me depressed. Why the fuck we can't have nice things?
>>17016877I wear frags that smell like urinal cakes and wet livestock and i can fuck when i want, sounds like a personal problem
>>17016885big if truewould accept defeat, respectable desu
>>17016883I can assure you that fragrance ingredients that are widely used today will be banned in another decade or two, it's been like that for the laat 30 years at this point, its not going to change anytime soon. To put it in perspective if ypu haven't completely eliminated pladtic packaging, synthetic clothing, any scented cleaning products laudry detergents or soaps, and any sorts of carpeting from you life + running a HEPA air filter 24/7 you have bigger things to worry about than some smelly oils
>>17016897In fact if you are using scented laundry detergent or drier sheets or fabric softener that is probably 100x the exposure to fragrance compounds as wearing cologne is
>>17016897I guess i will just don't give a fuck and if i will some day develop stage 3 cancer, i will just blame it on a bad gene pool while smelling my decant of Black Afgano. Ignorance is bliss.
>>17016910>Ignorance is bliss.Yup
>>17016897dude you are actually schizophrenic
>>17016915Start reading the research on microplastics my friend. They are in ur bloodstream fucking with ur hormones as we speak. Not to mention the BPA and half the stuff they replaced it with is even worse. Plastics put out so many estrogenic compounds it's like you are taking birth control
>>17016928microplastics are in the paint on your walls and in the air in your house in general, frags are the least of your concern>Plastics put out so many estrogenic compounds it's like you are taking birth controlwhy are people still having babies then?there is some study saying that every single substance is bad for you. I recommend you go live in a hut in the woods and only eat forest berries, it's the only way to be sure (no meat or mushrooms though, or you might get parasites or poisoned)

Ok poorfag here.I love picrel, it cost me 180€ i would ask for some honest and good experience advices:>at some point must to have wood>it must to make women remember it, chad smell tier>it must be low cost (dailyuse.exe)> summer, but could be for winter tooI could spend it again, but a guy who knows about fragances told me that its noy good at all(he wears versace small red bottle everywere)So it must to be a good one this time ( cuz acqva di parma sandalwood only likes to me and just a few told me its nice...anyways it feels people are more dumb than me must of the time)
>>17018397your post is hard to decipher, manhonestly if your friend mostly wears eros flame (which I assume is the red versace frag) then he probably doesn't know shit, probably just watched a few "TOP 10 MASS-APPEALING PANTY DROPPERS" videos on youtube an he thinks he's an expert on fragrances lolif I understand correctly you're looking for a cheap woody summer frag? maybe Encre Noire Sport then?
