Has CDG made a good scent since the early 2000s? I got a floriental sample, which was decent, it smells like a less sweet old Malaki but It wasn't that interesting. Garage I was excited about but it just smells like eucalyptus mentholated shit and no car smell. copper is fucking disgusting and smells like some frag from the 70s/80s that I tried before but I can't place it.

The original gourmand. Impressive, very nice. Copped a bottle from nordstrom rack at 44.99 recently, cheapest I've found it in a while, and it sold out before I had the sense to buy two. Tell me, do you see much stock of it anywhere you're at? I've seen it out of stock on fragrancenet and fragrancebuy, and it's 76$ on fragrancex. I'm trying to figure out if it's in the process of being cancelled, since it seems to be going up in price and disappearing from physical and online stores. Can't tell if L'oreal is just axing Mugler fragrances.

Everyone says 1881 is a nice bright green, and it’s cheap. I currently dont have a green. It’s a blind buy for me but just gonna go for it.

Sung is interesting because I hear about so many different notes, and it’s purple and extremely cheap.
I may swap it out for a travel spray of Dior Homme Intense because i feel like I’ll never wear it in reality
>>
>>17171328
Dior Homme intense is one of my favorites. I've never smelled Sung, so I can't tell you which is the better choice, but DHO is always a good choice.
>>
>>17171353
Thanks for the input. Is there any reason why Intense is nowhere to be found in real life??? Ive been to a bunch of department stores, talked to the Dior ladies and they all say there’s only Dior Homme and Dior Homme Sport. They tell me Intense isn’t a fragrance. Lmao. What the fuck? Is it only usually found in Europe or something? I feel like it’s something i should be able to sniff in person but cant find it anywhere. Same with YSL Tuxedo.

>>17171363
DHO is one of those fragrances that is immortal with perfume enthusiasts, but not as popular with the average consumer, as I understand it. Basically regular guys smell it at sephora and go "I don't think I could pull this off" or it simply doesn't appeal to them, and they get invictus, AdG, sauvage, flankers of the above, etc. instead. I don't say that as a knock against any of those, but it leads to Dior and the stores not bothering to stock it on the shelf, as the actual target demographic, fragheads, will buy DHO from fragrancenet anyways, ironically making it so the only place to buy it is from a discounter without a discount.

>>17171102
I can’t decide if i prefer Bois Imperial or Ganymede. I feel like they share the same base while being two completely different fragrances. BI is warmer, darker and more comfy while Ganymede feels more luxurious, but colder and more sterile. Two of my current favorites right now.

New York Intense, despite home office today.

>>17170921
Why bother applying any sprays at all then?

>>17171007
I'm still fighting the discounter over the money. Had to resort to paypal buyer protection. They claimed the box was damaged (it wasn't), and despite neither the packaging of the frag itself or the bottle having any damage, they denied me a refund. The bottle was very obviously damaged from the factory (improperly sealed) and I ain't giving them the money for nothing.

>>17171085
I finished my Dior Sauvage sample yesterday (after hitting the gym). And by finishing I mean that I sprayed the entire sample on me, because Dior only puts like 10 sprays into a sample and I had used 2 to test the frag back in the day. No headaches (because fragrances only trigger migraines, but headaches from frags are entirely autosuggestion).

>>17171115
It's a synthetic pepper note, but don't tell him that.

>>17171238
You ever thought that maybe you don't like fragrances at all?

>>17171247
Metallic herbal freshness mixed with bright florals. This is the one fragrance to which I ascribe the "barbershop" label, in the high-end luxury way. People say that about many frags, but this is the one which makes you feel like a 200$ haircut and shave. No bananas (I hate bananas).

>>17171363
You might need higher-end frag stores for Dior stuff. It's basically entry-level niche quality, so regular Sephoras might not be keeping much stock besides the crowdpleasers from Dior.

>>17171393
Sampling is easily possible, but you have to pay for the samples. My local high-end frag store also mostly stocks the "faux-niche" stuff, making real niche entirely pay to play. Which is why I own many designers instead, since I can test them at the store.
>>
>>17171500
Does the discovery kit really not have Sartorial? That's disappointing.

>>17171528
sadly not. Maybe you can get lucky and get it as a free sample from their frag discovery test, it gives you 3 free samples depending on your results

>>17171577
Confirming this. While stuff like Prada L'Homme Intense and YSL LNDL Bleu Electrique are still being made, the A*Men line is done for good. Everything is out of stock and never came back into stock, except for A*Men Ultimate (because nobody bought that, apparently) and some refill bottles. I have seen zero rebounds of stock since its alleged discontinuation and heard of no batch codes from 2022.
The rumors have often been there in the past, but stock always came back up. Unless there is some very major supply chain fuckery going on which somehow currently affects ALL A*Men frags, there won't be any new batches.

Yes, Ganymede is literally luxury, the sprayer alone is so fucking good. Wide, alot of juice, very fine drizzle, combine it with the mineralic, slightly citrusy and woody opening, it's literally perfection.

Bois Imperial is really good too. But Ganymede is a step up.
>>
>>17171600
nice dubs. How often have you had succes with asking for samples via email?
>>
>>17171600
Shame. But then again, people have asked the Prada customer service about L'Homme Intense and have also gotten the "discontinued" answer, yet it came back.
Bet the L'Oreal margin calculations gave the desired results for those two, because otherwise I can't explain why they would keep Ultimate.
>>
>>17171601
Yeah, Bois Imperial isn’t as luxurious. It’s like Ganymede but made for pesants. I still really like it since it lacks the salty/minerally note of Ganymede which is find a bit off putting.

I like Dior Homme Parfum as my go to elegant formal scent that's still easy to like. or Antaeus if you want to smell luxurious but dark, manly and not necessarily easy to like (doesn't smell like piss unlike what one inexperienced noselet here says, castoreum is more of a sweet musky leathery scent)

Nicolai - New York intense
Classy oakmoss, beautiful smooth blended mix of a fougere and chypre style fragrance.

Cartier - L'Envol edp
Woody honey powdery
A classy, more masculine and affordable honey fragrance compared to the overpriced, too sweet and feminine leaning xerjoff - Naxos.

Creed - Royal oud
Smell like old money. Strong peppery woody/cedar scent. It kind of reminds me a bit of the spicy licorice opening of sauvage elixir, but elixir is much smoother and softer.

My work colleague yesterday told me that I smell really good and wanted to know what I was wearing. I told him it’s a secret because I don’t want him to get it. But he insisted I tell him so I told him. He told me it will make all the girls wild. My female colleague got really close to me and touched my arm, presumably because I smell good. After work I met with a friend for a cheeky beer, after we hugged to say goodbye (no homo), he told me I smell good.

God I’m looking forward to Saturday evening like you wouldn’t believe it. I have a platonic date with a female friend that I haven’t seen in weeks. I have less than 1ml left of my 2ml sample so I’m saving it for Saturday. She and everybody within my immediate vicinity are in for a olfactory treat. I’m going to do 4 Sprays and maybe 2 cheeky Sprays as the evening progresses.

This is the first time I’ve really been enthusiastic for a fragrance and the vibe. I feel genuinely happier because Bois Imperial makes people know me as that guy who smells amazing. I don’t see the fragrance becoming popular and I hope it doesn’t, because I like being unique. I have no problem talking about it here it won’t cause the fragrance to get popular.

Im going to order a bottle from Douglas because I can pick it up within 2-3 days. But obviously I’m going to order it from their official website aswell so I can use the discount code from the discovery set.

My fragrance journey has come to an end for the time being, I’m considering trying out a sample of Ganymede. It would be good on those days that I feel extra sassy and feel like giving people a full blown olfactory assault.

So yeah, any bros out there who don’t collect perfume as their hobby and just wanna smell good and get compliments, just get Bois Imperial and call it a day. It’s a no brainer. Thank u for reading my autistic ramblings.

You can only pick one.
But I agree, Bois Imperial is basically a modern Sauvage (EdT). Sprayed one on one arm, the other on the other, and then you will realize BI is basically Sauvage without the overly synthetic pepper note in the drydown. Never smelled so many similar notes in two fragrances without them being associated in any way. By winter, this will be the #1 clubbing fragrance.

Sung occupies its same category of soapy aromatic scent and I deem it better and cheaper too. PRPH is not bad though. I always found testers at airports.

>Why bother applying any sprays at all then?

it's hard to quantify "luxurious"
I understand it more as rich, powerful, complex yet elegant fragrances, so I would say Dior Homme Parfum, Guerlain Shalimar EDP, Chanel Antaeus, maybe Jovoy Psychedelique. things that make an impression
that indie moss frag made by the Polish guy is also very high quality

COLOGNE SIPHON IDEAS
Good Evening Gentlemen. I'm thinking of creating some sort of cologne siphon similar to technology used during "Operation Baja Blast" (pic related)
The overall goal would be to collect as much expensive cologne into a handful of 10-20ml atomizers or a few large bottles.
Another idea would be to get atomizers with a quick fill feature on the bottom and try and quickly spray as much as I can into it before/without getting caught.
And no, I will not "just buy the cologne"
>>
>>17172060
kek same here, but bois imperial is one of the GOAT fragrances
>>
>>17172068
you can return opened shit to Sephora and Macys dumbass. just buy it, decant it, then refill it with water and return.
>>
>>17172068
Yeah but please do it in silence and do not involve us in your stupidity. You should really try and figure out how many sprays you actually need to get to 10 mL to see why this is a stupid idea.

>>17172068
To fill my 2-3 ml samples they need to spray bottles at least 30-40 times. It takes time even done fast and everyone nearby will hear you furiously spray.
Just get into senhora everytime you need a frag for a special occasion, douse yourself in some frags and leave.
>>17172073
I think you just found out why modern designers are all watered down and underperfoming.
I think I could do it even better: decant up to half the bottle, and refill it with some diluted alcohol solution, I would just recreate the alcoholic frag smell and refill it.

How do you ask popular houses for samples via email? Asking niche brands that you cant buy locally is pretty easy, but how do i explain to the dior customer service guy that i would rather get some of their samples, instead of just going to the local mall?

it's pretty nice IMO, unique yet inoffensive. maybe a little too minimalistic for me, I wonder if they'll fix that with a future flanker
unripe banana opening, goes more into a "dried-out plants in the summer heat (maybe hay?)" with that warm, metallic "hot air from an iron" note
performance is quite decent, much better than most warm weather designer frags. the scent is airy and transparent, but persists for many hours, I guess Sclarene is similar to Iso E in that way

I copped a decant myself because I could see getting bored with a full bottle, since it is a pretty simple frag despite its uniqueness. might still get one eventually, we'll see, maybe it'll be the one "le epic versatile mass-pleaser" in my collection, since I find most other frags in that category boring or outright vile

eh, the appeal is similar to something like Molecule 01 IMO after the green banana top notes end, where it's a subtle abstract airy scent that's hard to describe. just happens to be more mineral / metallic rather than dry / woody like Iso E

Marbert Homme arrived today.
Sprayed it on my wrist and immediately got greeted by the familiar smell of a classic chypre fragrance, with vanilla on top. This was apparently released in 2012. Polge straight up copied this in 2016 and released it as "Pour Monsieur Eau de Parfum", because it's what this smells like. The budget version of Pour Monsieur EdP, or at least the inspiration for it. Like someone told Polge to take Marbert Homme and make it smell more expensive. Immediately went to fragrantica to see the "reminds me of"-section, but no PM EdP to be found. Instead, I looked in the reviews and found confirmation. This isn't "One Man Show". Fragrantica must be reviewing a similar fragrance from Marbert, or vintage versions or whatever.

If you want PM EdP on a budget or a classic vanilla chypre, Marbert Homme might be for you. Since I got it for 8.49€, this will stay in my collection. As for similarities to Hattric Aftershave, there are none.
Useless trivia: I drove past the original Marbert company many times.

You should, if you like chypres. It's still a good fragrance. It feels a bit spicier in the drydown than Pour Monsieur EdP, while PM EdP retains more of that lemon vibe. Now in the late drydown PM EdP is certainly a lot smoother, but these two fragrances are divided by >80€ (71.99€ for the PM EdP 75 mL, so 96€/100 mL, 8,49€ for MH 100 mL). Someone who's out for a budget chypre could make a steal here. I do not regret that blind-buy, although I was hoping for Hattric.

Terre d'Hermes - Soured old vermouth, lemon(?), fucking sauerkraut. It's a bit oceanic beneath the sourness. Overtly masculine but in a gay way. It's a familiar fragrance: sometimes I can smell blokes wearing this or something very similar, especially in sunny weather - and I don't like it.

Alien Man - "What if we tried to recreate a 90s Lynx scent and threw some leather in there?"

Encre Noire - Myrrh, frankincense, rosin - all nice things, but I don't find this combination very nice. I expected complex earthiness but I don't get it. There is some "middle-class grandma perfume" in there. This is probably what Morrissey smells like in his old age.
