Wow, /frag/ still has people with taste - great picks anon. Is Rostracto included in the Rogue catalogue? How is Maruyama? Seems nice based on notes, but knowing Prin I wouldn't trust on the notes alone. I think Pardon is the best pick out of Nasomatto's choice; I pulled the trigger on Baraonda, but it's so strong that I very rarely get to wear it. Think I need to get some rewears on it.
>>
>>17256662
I'm sorry you fell for the Aventus meme in the current age (assuming you got that bottle after 2018). I love The One EdP even though it's a bit weak and BdC is a no brainer. Y EdP is kinda redundant because you already have the superior blue fragrance. Not a fan of Acqua di Gig and Cool Water but they might work for you.

I love antaeus but I feel it just doesn't last enough. The opening is amazing and the drydown is very floral and pleasing, what family of fragrances should I be looking for?
>>
>>17257045
Currently wearing Chypre Palatin on one wrist and Chypre Siam on the other to compare. Both are beautiful but so far I prefer Palatin. The civet in Chypre Siam is way muskier than I expected, not as easy to wear, but its starting to mellow out.

>>17257040

>>
>>17257053
Yes it has rostracto. I haven't smelled a lot of Prin Lomros but Maruyama and Natsumeku were my favorites. Both are Japanese inspired but I decided to go with Maruyama. To me, Natsumeku smelled cleaner, fresher, almost kind of detergent-y, whereas Maruyama is spicy, herbal and floral. It smells vaguely edible, like opening up a spice cabinet. To me its not a super challenging scent and not as out-there as some of Prin's other stuff. I recommend it.
>>
>>17256552
I heard that the chinese love Opium
>>
>>17257092
The Chinese love bad 80s frags because in the 80s only the midt wealthy elite could afford European luxury goods. Then as markets opened up millde class women started buying the fancy 80s perfumes they always wisehd they could own as teenagers. Many FOB Chinese girls studying at American colleges wear the same 80s perfumes their moms do because they don't know anything else.

Ok. so just a general question . Last week I picked up a bottle of Tobacco Vanilla from a department store. I opened it up today and seems like there was a minor leakage.

Shall I return/claim it?

6g is I think missing - does this equal to 5.1 ml?

How much does a bottle of 100 ml usually contain ml? I suppose there is some real margin tolerance - do you have any idea?

I tested out the cologne and it lasts like 14 hours which is outrageously good.

Please let me know, since it does not allow me to sleep at night an can't find it out over the internet.

Also the atomizer does not fit in snug on that 100 ml - there is a slight gap. do you think it's okay or is my batch in general faulty?

Wondering about your experiences,

thanks /fa/nons

>>17257144
Why do you think some leaked? Bottles aren't usually filled completely to the top. Did thr inside of the box smell like a bunch of frag was spilled in there? Usually if a fragrance leaks its a huge mess and the bottle is like half empty because it will keep evaporating

no. none in the box, none on the outside of the bottle. just under the cap and bottle top.

This was around when Black in White was released and I simply told them that I was interesting in sampling the fragrance as a customer before purchasing. They sent a real nice packaging for free.
>>
>>17257053
I should also add that Maruyama has a bit of a curry smell to it, so avoid if you don't want to smell like a pajeet (which I have no problem with)
>>
>>17257288
Based decision. It's on my full bottle list, certainly the best as well as most modern chypre out there, at least of those I've tried so far.

>>17257282
What has LNDL to do with Encre Noire?
>>
Just ordered samples of Invasion Barbare and Chypre Palatin. What will I think of it?
>>
>>17257314
IB: Airy lavender to me. Likeable and long-lasting, but very safe in my opinion. I'm sure someone in this world wears this to the office regularly. Not sure what type of person, though.
Chypre Palatin: If you like chypres, this might easily place among your top positions. If you don't like chypres, you might still find something likeable in it. It's a very refined take on the classical chypre structure.

>>17257288

Hello friends, I would like to thank /frag/ and the chart in >>17256545 for helping me pick a frag. I sampled 2 dozen choices and think I want to start with CdG 2 Man and Chanel Pour Monsieur. Thank you for stopping me from smelling like shampoo or a mall.

I do have a really dumb question though, when I looked up Chanel Pour Monsieur I see the EDT and EDP have different scent profiles on fragrantica…. Is there a difference in their composition or is this just people rating the two differently?
>>
>>17257439
yes, there is a difference. there is the original EDT in the slim bottle and the EDT concentree and EDP which have some differences to the original, most notably they add vanilla
>>
>>17256788
>>17256801
Club De Nuit Limited Edition

It's by far the best take, But cost x3 as much as the EDT and rarer to find.

Green irish tweed is such a good scent. Sharp-green and very clean, it stood the test of time. Cool Water is a different scent, it's like a watered down version of it and never nearly as good.

Any perfume that smells like pine tar shampoo?
>>
>>17257811
idk what pine tar smells like but Imaginary Authors Cape Heartache is the pine-iest fragrance that I know of. If only it didn't have such a repulsive, synthetic strawberry note it would actually be decent. CdG Hinoki is super pine-y as well and is actually worth checking out.
>>
>>17257698
Baccarat Rouge 540 Extrait de Parfum.
Unless you want to gift it to a chick you don't want to violently force yourself onto. In that case, get something else.

I just got pardon and black afgano
Pardon is completely bizarre. Smells like a musty old jacket. Can’t even describe it well.
Black afgano reminds me a lot of fucking fabulous.
I’ve also recently tried carnal flower, portrait of a lady, and promise.
Carnal flower being the best (but with poor performance), PoaL being a massive letdown and Promise being nauseating for the first 3 hours but actually decent in the drydown.
Got some le labo and a penhaligon’s portrait set coming tomorrow.
Honestly when I got into this the first two frags I got were BDC and Aventus.
Both were good but Aventus blew my mind and my reasoning was “what are the odds that I just happened to pick the most amazing frag first? There are probably tons of amazing frags out there!”
Next I got fucking fabulous which seemed to confirm my intuition that there were some really special, unique and pleasant frags to be found.
But after that everything has been pretty much shit.
This is a fun exercise but ultimately I’ll probably return to Aventus for SS and FF for FW.
>>17257053
I had heard good things about pardon so I got a bottle with my black afgano cause although I’m a richfag I hate paying for shipping.
It’s a really weird frag. I feel like it goes out of its way to be hostile to the notion of crowd pleasing

ok so I got memed into ordering a bois imperial sample and I can't decide if I like it

Also received Verano sample. Someone asked for a comparison between Montabaco Intensivo and Verano some threads back: the base is similar, but Montabaco Verano replaces the "airiness" of the Intensivo with a much more prominent suede combined with grapefruit - to my nose this combines to an almost honey-like note. I prefer Intensivo.

The 5x champion of the fragrantica reader's choice awards in the "Best Men's Perfume of all time" category. In fact, the only champion in that category, no other fragrance has made the first place so far.

In terms of the scent? Lipsticky iris blast in the opening with a nice powdery earthy-woody drydown. The iris doesn't go away but turns down two or three notches, cedar comes in. Only for the strongest and weakest of men, everyone inbetween would be better off with Sauvage. And I mean that in terms of body AND mind.

Interesting notes, need to try it. One first downside against Bois Imperial is the price. Bosi Imperial is niche quality for designer price. It's long lasting, pulls attention and compliments, boosts confidents, pleases the snob like me who searches for almost photorealistic woody fragrances.

All very superficial, synthetic in a cheap way smelling scents. Somewhat similar like someone who cold approach a women with lame pick up lines.

It's more butch on a woman and unisex on a man. Leans masculine. It's just not a brutally masculine fragrance.

I've been asked if I'm wearing women's perfume when I was wearing my Layton sample, something that has never happened with DHI, which is my winter signature. It's all relative.

I'm only buying vintage frags to sample now. You never know what you're going to get with them, while I can pretty much predict what boring shit ill get with new frags

impossible to quantify "gayness" in a fragrance. it's not very feminine, if that worries you. women don't seem to buy it, compared to other masculine fragrances. pic related, just some fragrances i picked from parfumo. mitsuoko and the shalimar extrait have even higher male ownership than shalimar. does that mean a girl wearing shalimar smells gay or masculine? not really, but that's just my opinion.

Need some help here, i sampled quite a bit last 2 weeks:
tom ford tobacco vanille
tom ford tuscan leather
tom ford oud wood
tom ford oud tobacco
tom ford neroli portofino
xerjoff alexandria 2
creed aventus
creed viking
creed green irish tweed
creed silver mountain water
creed royal oud
by kilian angels share
by kilian straight to heaven
by kilian black phantom
mancera red tobacco
replica by the fireplace
The only one i really loved was tobacco vanille. Other than that i tought angels share and viking were pretty good. The rest was not that good i think. I thought alexandria 2 smelled really good, but it's way to strong for me i did one spray and smelled it even after 24 hours and a shower. What should i sample next, any good recommendations? Definitly wanna smell bacarat rouge 540.

No, Amouage is pretty forgettable. You could cover Interlude, Jubilation and Reflection with other brands too. Beach hut man is a green minty fragrance that turn very sweet in the drydown.
But you should totally sample them, never blind buy.

Creed get shitted on lately, but i'm very pleased with newly bought Royal Oud. Green Irish tweed is absolute great. As a green aromatic lover, it's my all time favorite. People say that some clones or Cool Water might be better, but as soon as i tried GIT i realised that the quality is miles ahead.

I was in your same situation 10 minutes ago trying to find the code, it's hidden so well lol. It's on the bottom of the paper box, right below the TED LAPIDUS (r), it's basically invisible for me unless I shine it under direct light, you can feel it by passing a finger on it. It's like this: 20G15, 3rd place is always a letter. you are probably typing a 0 instead of an O or something like that. You can input it here

Got my sample of BI in today from luckyscent along with Carved Oud, Reflection and Reflection 45. I'm not really fond of reflection and 45 they smell like oxi-clean. Carved oud smells great on paper, i'll have to try it on skin on a cool day soon. BI is surprisingly up my alley. The basil and patchouli smell like my childhood, kinda reminds me of my mom in a good way, unlike Sedley which I smelled and thought "this smells like the rosemary soap she uses, it's not something i can wear personally". might get a 10ml of BI to give a few wears soon.

I'm halfway through the rogue discovery set and I gotta say that anon was right, I have been bamboozled by Mr. Cross. So far these all smell dated (not in a good way), uninspired, and have piss poor performance. Reminds me of having to wait for my dad in country club locker rooms as a kid, surrounded naked, old protestants that sound like they're about to have a heart attack putting on pants. I'll stick to my TF and my CdG.

I got samples of a few of his frags a couple years ago. I didn't end up buying any but other than bon monsieur they all seemed to have good performance.
I liked most of them (i like 80s frags) but never got around to buying a bottle so i guess i didn't find them that exciting

Maybe I didn't apply enough with the rollerball, but Tabac Vert, Mousse Illuminee, and Chypre Siam all became pretty much unnoticeable on my skin after a few hours. Even Derviche wasn't that great for an amber. I applied it at night and it was gone by the next morning, whereas it seems like Pardon and Black Orchid will continue strong into the next day.

Looking for a soft and attractive but not loud frag that's good for dates but also daily wear
I'm the guy who gets terrible longevity out of DHI despite liking it, so something else than that please. My tastes are a bit all over the place, I like DHI but also ambery aromatic frags like LDDM, ozonic woody frags like kenzo homme parfum or fresh greens like GIT... As I said the only frags I really dislike are loud ones that project a lot, harsh eighties stuff, that kind of thing

if you want something similar to DHI but with great longevity you could go for the Parfum... it lasts like two days on my skin

So i was reading that OG formulation of Aventus actually smelled oakmossy, smoky and fruity, is that true? If true, i might rethink my opinion on Aventus(atleast of the old formulation). CDNI, Hacivat, modern Aventus is just fruity, piercing plastic ambrox mix.
>>
>>17260564
you could try something from the Gentleman Givenchy line, also lots of good elegant iris frags in that line
This is Him is a great scent too and not too expensive

Yup, and now people pay thousands for an old bottle from the right batch
Who cares if it maybe used to smell good if the stuff in the bottle now is garbage?
>>
>>17260615
No, it pretty much smelled the same. All that talk of the old formula was better is just people being histers and nostalgia fags. Also reviewers damage controlling
>oh you got one of the new bottles, that's why it doesn't smell anything like i described it, the old bottles are waaayy better bro.

>>17260615
i have a newer bottle that smells very close to a really old bottle that i have. a nice balance of smokey, fruity, dry woody scents.
the longevity of the new stuff is abysmal though. 2-3 hours max. dont think ill buy again.

Explorer is probably the best smelling alternative, the opening is not great (better than CDNIM) but the drydown is very nice. Perfect general frag you can wear whenever.

CDNIM is like Aventus but extremely loud and not that smooth but really quite close otherwise

Cedrat Boisee is slightly different, is much more musk heavy on my skin and a bit more sweet instead of smoky/spicy. I feel like I'm in Ayleid ruins from Oblivion when I wear this kek. Lasts forever and is a bit loud.

Aventus is exactly as described, much smoother than all the other alternatives. My sample is from batch 21W01 and it lasted a good 12+ hours on me, and I could smell it after a shower too so it's still a pretty strong frag.
>>
>>17260615
Why hasn't a company put Aventus in a centrifuge and just cloned it?
>>
>>17260728
the arab clone houses like Armaf actually use specral imaging to analyze the exact chemical makeup of whatever they're cloning
that being said, they still need to bring the formula cost down and stuff, which is why clones rarely smell as good as the real stuff
