Sort of, its more that you will have a base light musk from the iso e super that will last for ages. But lots of people go noseblind to it so it's hard to say if you will be able to smell it all day. But yeah iso e super lasts.
Putting some unscented lotion on when you get out of the shower on all the places you will spray your frag and that will help it last longer. Just put on some unscented lotion something like aveno or lubriderm, wait till it drys then apply your frag.

To the people who had hope that I'd quickly get my Sung Homme bottle problem solved, it ain't the case. I'm now going through with PayPal buyer protection because the seller wasn't cooperative, despite delivering a defective bottle. All I wanted was those 13.46 € back.

OK, trying this one more time. I’m posting from >>17168189 and would like frag recs. I need something mature and non-chemical. Sweet frags don’t fit me, but it’s hard to find something with spices and/or musk that don’t wreak of chemicals (I have an extremely sensitive sense of smell and most everything smells cheap to me). Again, I’d prefer a tobacco/cigar type smell.

Guerlain Vetiver is definitely mature and does feature tobacco. dru to the bone with no sweetness, not much in the way of spices either though. grey vetiver is a more modern equivalent with a bit of spice but no tobacco, and terre d'hermes is one with a lot of spice, but also more sweetness
tom ford for men could work too now that I think about it, it does have perceptible tobacco and spices while not being sweet and ks very classy and mature. underrated frag

Solid perfumes actually have a history going back to Victorian times and there was a lot of ornate solid perfume boxes that women would carry around so they could dab some throughout the day when they felt the need. It's an interesting history if you care about that sort of thing. The modern versions usually arent anything fancy but thats fine.

2 weeks ago i bought 2005 Lancaster batch and today i finally compared it with current formulation in a store, and the vintage is much better blended and more natural whereas new version has a grainy "texture" it's almost like a gravel and less pleasant, but surprisingly looks like new cool water has better longevity

Bois Imperial.

My essential perfumes discovery set arrived today and I wore Bois Imperial. It turns out the hype is justified. It’s not what I suspected, in fact it’s even better.

I now somehow doubt if the psycho who shills Bois Imperial has even tried it because it smells completely different to his description. I thinks he just gets his kicks getting people to buy the fragrance.

So at the beginning it smelled really strong like some shaving cream, very astringent and refreshing. In the drydown, it developed into something that I can’t describe because I’m a noselet but it is very nice und fuzzy. I think the fragrance is so hyped because it smells so strange but at the same time, it is very inoffensive. It’s for people who want to stand out but at the same time fit in. It’s very versatile. I’m looking forward to trying out the other fragrances and I will definitely buy a bottle of Bois Imperial, H24 and ghost in Shell and rotate them as my signature scent.

So thank you guys who have been shilling the fragrance/that one psycho who is pretending to be different people.

Firstly, no. If my essay sounds gay to you, then you are gay for thinking gay thoughts, which is completely okay. Secondly, I’m a high IQ white German man. Thirdly, there’s nothing wrong with giving into the hype. Sometimes things have Hype for a reason, just because something is really popular doesn’t make it less good. I suspect you are just jealous that you don’t have the disposable income to buy nice things on a whim.
>>17168583
I can’t say it’s better or worse, it’s different. They are both in the same category of smelling good and unique compared to mainstream blue fragrances but still being extremely versatile to wear to work with an good silliage and performance without offending anybody.

You need to calm down and take a good hard look at yourself. Ask yourself where your anger comes from and work on a way of controlling your emotions because at the end of the day, you are holding on to a hot stone with the intent to hurt somebody, but you are only hurting yourself...

Germany should never have been rebuilt after WW2 and the only reason it was done was because of the Cold War. Your nation exists because America wanted it to exist. Every German should come with a “made in America” sticker. And you’re so fucking arrogant as a people it’s pathetic. You’re a conquered nation. Continuously occupied by foreign powers since the 40s. And you know I’m 100% correct. I’m not saying I’m going to fuck your mother out of anger. I’m saying it because you are German, and there’s nothing you would ever do about it. Other than be a faggot.

Cologne is one of the best modern takes on classic citrus colognes imo. Eau Extreme is overpriced with an OD of shitty vanilla over the smell of AHS. The OG smells completely different darker and sweeter with peach. The hype behind Blanche I don’t get at all. It’s totally boring lemon and vanilla and it’s gone in an hour.
>>17168550
I really expected to hate it because I had a negative connotation from the guy trolling about it/autist shilling it. For the first few months of shilling, I thought it was a complete meme and didn’t realize people actually like it.

You are suffering from utter olfactory incompetence if you think Explorer and Aventus smell similar beyond the first whiff of the top note, and even then there's a difference. The dry down of Explorer has none of the depth found in Aventus, and smells like every other boring synthetic woods/ambroxan base designer. Funniest part is that Explorer is the best Aventus clone, Hacivat, CDNIM, and all the others are even cheaper smelling. Either you are trolling or have outed yourself as not being able to judge the quality of fragrances. Is it worth the money? Yes, because it gatekeeps broke noselet plebs like you.

How do you get shaving cream from it? Is this fragrantica, where everything is a shaving cream or barbershop frag? It's all woods with some basil at the start for me.

The drydown of Platinum Egoiste is still close enough for me. I've found nothing which is 1:1 yet.

>>17168562
Ordered Marbert Homme for 8.49€. Never heard about it, but it sounds great.

>>17168592
Not for me. La Nuit de L'Homme is great, but has always been kind of weak (and L'Oreal probably didn't make it better). Eros is horrible, Cedrat Boise is too synthetic-sweet. Jazz Club just wasn't for me, but my gf likes it. Spicebomb Extreme has been diluted by L'Oreal, at least the stuff I have.

>>17168658
Best chance would be a Müller drugstore. They stock Marbert products, but I don't know if they stock that one specifically. I usually go there to test cheapies/aftershaves.

>>17169035
It's because L'Oreal currently does that with their entire portfolio. Dilute the designers, bring out exclusive lines, ramp up to niche prices. Armani Prive, Mugler Les Exceptions, Prada Olfactories, etc. I'm sending bottles back by the droves for poor performance, all L'Oreal.

Fuck me, the only guy selling them in the us is asking $40 a bottle. Did you order the current version in a clear or dark glass rectangular bottle or the old version in a tall black bottle with an integrated sprayer?
Anyway looking forward to seeing your thoughts on it
>>
>>17169325
Yep, there are very few discounters that i've found. I live in EU, so that makes it harder. The once i did find, had either worse prices, or not the right volume frags. I've checked ebay and our national ebay kind of website, and they have a few for sale, but you only save like 2 euro at max
>>
>>17169359
Current version. Should arrive on Saturday. Local Müller drugstore doesn't have it stocked, so I can't just go there to test it, but just from the notes and reviews it appears to be something I might like.

Fragrances are subjective, you can have 10 youtubers say that a frag smells amazing, and is a perfect fit for your age group, gender and style, but then absolutely hate it when you blind buy it. Watch them for fun and recommendation, but always test any frags that they are recommending before blind buying it.

my experience from working in a clothing store, museum kiosk and so in, is that employees are selling so many different items, that are constantly going in and out of stock, so they almost know less than the customers.

it's even more hilarious because he bases his opinions on briefly smelling things at a store once, has mostly tried generic designer stuff, owns 6 frags (mostly random cheapies and sauvage, probably no decants) and yet he thinks he is an expert whose opinion is of value to anyone

>>17169531
You can't try anything but designers in physical stores, and I'm not interested in buying decants of niche frags I can't afford to buy yet.
I never said I am an expert, but as much as you are entitled to like your frags, I can say your frags smells like shit to me.
No amount of expensive niche frags decants will change the fact that you smell like piss wearing Antaeus bro, give up. I don't need a degree to tell if something smells good or like shit. Anyone can do it.
And I sample the same frags over and over, both on paper and myself.

Thanks, I’ll check mueller drugstores next month. Any other places I should check out? I’ll be in Berlin. Also give your take on Marbert when you get it. I’ll also give platinum egoiste a try, but these cheap German colognes/aftershaves are hard to beat.
>>
>>17169561
I just started trying Guerlain frags. I am not much impressed so far. I tried L'homme ideal edt and intense, not a fan. Might need to retry them. I came across vetiver only a few days ago at an airport. It didn't smell old to me, but I wasn't blown away either. Maybe I just don't like vetiver. I couldn't try it out correctly though, they had no paper strips and I already had frags on me, I had to smell it from the air and sprayer.

What are considered the best of the best from the l'homme ideal line? It's the only one I consistently find in every frag store. Still not sure what the hype is about, the ones I tried all seem to smell very light and soft, not really my thing.

If you dress moderately well, you might be able to check believably check out some frags at the KaDeWe. They have a "popular niche" frag selection and might have test bottles. Of course, everything is overpriced and so are these frags, but you might be able to smell something new for free.
dm and Rossmann stores might have more aftershave-type cheapies, but Müller is usually better for testing them (more open bottles). There are probably a million Douglas stores in Berlin, so you could check those out if you want to sniff stuff.
Other than that, I have no Berlin-specific input.

Yes this wood basil fragrance makes me think of some shaving creme, I now use unscented shaving gel.
>>
>>17169602
Yeah, Bois Imperial is really that good. It got many layers of of enjoyment, blended by an outstanding perfumer, Mr. Bisch.
It starts with freshly crushed peppercorns, immediately a fresh cut wood accord complementing the pepper note. There's still an underlying freshness, which makes the overall DNA addicting. The breathtaking, fresh and interesting concocting will turn slighty earthy, which makes it different to many fragrance, but at the same time enjoyable.

BI doesn't "turn" any direction, it loses the basil note and that's it (or the "peppercorn" note, but it's still closer to basil to me). Not really a complex fragrance.
You need to like woody frags to like, and by woody I mean straight-up nothing but 2x4s. Zero positive feedback combined with my personal dislike made me shelve this frag forever.

normal people just use these testers to see if they like the opening and if they like it, they will try it out on their skin in store/order a decant online. They just make a mental note on what fragrance they like/dislike lmao

I see the value of buying Fragrance from places like Douglas because it allows people to try out fragrances for free and that makes up for the mark-up that you pay.

The ideal line is the only line I don’t like from them. Interesting tk hear that they’re pushing it so hard. I recommend the classics, heritage, vetiver, and habit rouge. The beauty of the classics is how much they develop from start to finish. You wont see the beauty from spraying and smelling it in air. From there, the L’instant and homme line are good for modern frags.

this is true, and a big part of why compliments don't really mean anything

>>
>>17169767
It’s neither as good nor as bad as people make it out to be. Price value isn’t terrible if you get it on sale, projection and performance are above average I’d say. It’s a scent that 99% of people will find pleasant and, surprisingly, it’s the only one that got me actual complements. The only note that gets really sickening after a while is ambra.
>you smell it everywhere
No, you fucking don’t. I don’t know people exaggerate this issue so much, but if you really think about it, how many times throughout the day can you actually notice people wearing perfume? Sure, if you go out clubbing you might get a whiff or two but I’m a university student in Germany and I promise you the only thing you’ll smell (no matter the season) is the occasional axe oversprayer or Stacey who bathed in whatever cheapie was on sale at the drugstore. OCASIONALLY you’ll notice someone wearing a frag that’s not utter garbage but that might as well be the odd rich kid who got Bleu de Chanel from their dad

I've traveled through most of Europe, big cities, and rural areas, and spent two years on the US west coast, as well as one semester in Vancouver and it is pretty much the same thing. This sub often forgets that fragrances are still a niche interest and the majority of people will never experience anything else besides 10 dollar aftershave or 4711 colognes.

>>17169808
It's certainly being copied already. I was at the barber the other day, and while he was cutting my hair, I got hit by the synthetic pepper note of the Sauvage EdT quite a few times. After shaving my neck, he used "Novon Classic Barber Cologne Smoked Pine" (splashed on hands with some other stuff, probably balm) and rubbed it on. I immediately realized that that was where the smell is from - his hands, and now my neck.
Now I'm not sure if it was the cologne or the other stuff he added, but it was the Sauvage EdT opening for sure. It might be possible that I was already noseblind to the other smells that usually linger in an actual barbershop and that it actually smells different, but if you'd ask me, I'd say it's Sauvage-inspired and contains a lot of similarities.

So expect this to be the "20's barbershop" DNA in fragrantica reviews in 20 years.

Yeah, there are a lot of lexicological difficulties in foreign language learning when it comes to English. My favorite is "to become" as in "to receive" since in "bekommen" means just that in German.

I already told you I don't like Antaeus.
And you can just be convenient about it, don't care what 3 wagies think of you to impress the others. Also using "compliment getting" as a way to select frags is so sad honestly. It can be a factor but if you just get a frag because it's liked by everyone it tells much about you. I like sauvage because I like how it smells, that it's very well liked is just a plus. And I dont remember ever smelling it before either.
>>17169945

It’s the same in Germany. The only upside is that it’s making people recognize you by your (((signature scent))) really easy if you’re into that.

Factually wrong. Almost all people in my circle wear niche and it’s the same with virtually everyone from an aspiring- or upperish-middle class. Whereas by niche I obviously mean mostly things like Malle, Le Labo, Diptyque etc but a good chunk of my creative or artist friends wear hardcore niche (like Beaufort London for example). On the streets? Yeah, almost no one then but why would I care about random Joes or Janes.

You either are never noticed and are wasting your time and money or you obnoxiously fill the room. It's hard to find the sweet spot if you don't have someone close to ask to. Also needs to be fairly refined, some people can't distinguish deodorant from fragrances, not can tell how much us too much or too little.

We can change that by gifting frags to people . I just started with my family.

If all you have to reply to our personal experiences are personal anecdotes as well, I don’t believe putting the word "factual" in front of what you’re saying gives you any more legitimacy. Good to hear that not all people are so disinterested. Where are you from if I may ask ?
>>
>>17170012
Your circle sounds rather niche itself. But most people don't care much. It's a special occasion item for everyone, something you should wear to impress a girl or at a fancy dinner.

I live in southern France and lots of people wear perfume. I catch whiffs of Sauvage, Boss Bottled and BDC regularly
These people don't know what they're talking about

It's none of these.
Hint: it's kind of a cheapie.

>>17169984
That was my intention. When I saw on there that people describe sausage elixir as an old school barbershop classic a la Drakkar Noir, it had me confused. Thought I'd make a game out of it.

>>17170002
I've started actually trying to smell what other people are wearing here in Germany, and I think many wear something. It's just that nothing is powerful today and everything is diluted, so you can't catch it that easily. Might be related to this city, though, which is kinda into fashion and shit.

This box is fucking retarded lol but you already know your boys loving the bois. Thank you based Quinten
>>
>>17170055
I agree about the box but I don’t mind it as that’s probably one of the factors why it is cheaper than most of designer scents.
>>
>>17170066
True. With the lucky scent coupon, it came out to only $58 with 3 free samples I got all the Marc marc antoine barrois frags from bisch
>>
>>17170069
oh and I bought a sample of his new fragrance for CDG, Marseilles
>>
i'm intrigued
>>
>>17170044
yeah, a lot of people say it smells like an 80s fragrance, when it doesn't at all
>>
>>17170072
Smells like a boys locker room. Avoid it at all costs.

might have to cop a bottle
>>
>>17170117
what about bleu de chanel? meme tier?
>>
>>17170087
only worth it if you really like that exact scent.
theres plenty of others that smell similar for a lot less.
>>
>>17170147
it's safe and versatile, kinda on the expensive side .Smells great,but you will not stand out ,desu.it's not something special.
>>
>>17170147
very safe inoffensive NPC frag. kind of overpriced
I think Terre d'Hermes is still the best out of the big brand "versatile" hyped modern designer frags
>>
How similar are the OG and the L'eau editions of Habit Rouge?
>>
>>17170072
Go and try it, reading about it is definitely gonna turn you off, once I've tried it I was sure i want a bottle, only thing is regret is getting a 50ml not a 100ml right away but we'll see
>>
>>17170209
I wish I could find it in any store to try. every store here seems to carry Antaeus but not Kouros for some reason. might have to get a sample at some point
>>
>>17170227
Yeah, a sample is a must, I've went into a store about 5-6 times to try it before deciding to get a bottle.
>>
>>17170160
>>17170164
Isnt it like $120? I have a valentino cologne that I got for the same price
>>
>>17170147
if you're a newfag, remember to wait until it dries down until you come to a verdict. all the Chanel frags have shit performance and Creed is a bullshit company with a fake history and are absolutely not worth the money.
>>
>>17170044
Modern fragrances are designed with women in mind. They are made to be safe to not upset women that are in the office (they should be in the kitchen and taking care of babies). That’s also why iris is so popular today. It’s easy for women. Nothing is made with the thought of masculinity and being a male leader.

go back to twitch and lurk 10 years before posting here again, retard

just so you know this has nothing to do with fragrances. I don't care about explorer. but you are a fag
>>
>>17169471
Yeah, the wagies at the mall are not trained to know their stuff. If I walk in to any store I'm generally sure I know more than the people working there.
>>
>>17169035
Fuck, I love Prada and wish I could sample these without having to blind buy.

Are they mostly oriental-type fragrances?
>>
>>17168417
Creed Viking cologne in the morning then a spray or 2 of Dunhill Icon later on in the day.

Have you tried dior jules?
>>
>>17170072
Buy it if you can get it cheap. If you like Old school scents then you might dig it. I haven't worn it out in public yet but I have applied it loads as there's is a great attraction to it for me
Go to a store and sample it. let it dry down though as that opening gave me whiplash.

I swear to god, my expectations weren’t high, but boi this smells better than I thought. I recommend it if you like some apple and cinnamon notes at the top. Later it developed really nice and it lasts about 5 hours. Thoughts?
>>
>>17170499
It's a snice autumn scent but like a lot of frags the current formulation isn't as strong as it used to be.
>>
>>17170499
One of the most common fragrances out there, at least in Germany. There's obviously a reason for that. I wouldn't wear it myself, but I can see why people like it.

Yep, I bought a 50ml bottle of Kouros last year because I didn't expect to wear it that much, but I ended up liking it way more than expected and burned through it pretty quick. Recently re-upped with a 100ml bottle and feeling great about it

Tried those two and Marienbad in the clear bottle, they're all wonderful orientals. It blows my mind that there's barely any reviews on the Olfactories line compared to LV's line full of polished generic freshies, with some exceptions like Ombre Nomade.

Try joining one of the many fragrance exchange groups on Facebook, there's a whole bunch of them especially if you live in the US or Canada. Some perfume autist like an anon here (pic related) will have a decant to sell you if you ask nicely.
>>
>>17170729
They're fine frags anon, enjoy them. Maybe don't spend so much without smelling them first tho. It can be an addictive/expensive habbit.
>>
