what is the note/quality of scents like fahrenheit and ombre leather? i love these kinds of scents
>>
Smelled Azzaro Chrome edp today:
Boring as fuck, generic as fuck. Not worth giving a second look.

Also Joop! Homme "Le Parfum":
Smells like a mix of the Stronger With You line. Just some sweet shit. Each SWY is a bit more balanced in comparison, but in the end it's all the same.

Yesterday I tried Dior homme parfum at work for the first time ( I work in a highway booth, a really closed and hot environment) and I was enjoying the fragrance a lot, but after a few hours I started to get some fecal notes and I was almost going to puke. I didn't even know where that came from, I went into fragrantica to see if someone even mentioned that because I'm aware this is fragrance evolves a lot and noone was saying anything even remotely similar so I assumed it was the mix with my body chemicals what was causing it (quite a hard pill to swallow as a frag head that your body chemistry has notes that makes you smell like shit) . The smell wasn't going away and I ended my shift thinking about swapping it for something fresher on Reddit.

Turns out I shat myself at work without noticing. My fucking chair has a big dent in the middle like a bad bicycle chair and it pressured my perineum area too hard that it got numb and it seems something leaked out by accident. One coworker when she came in the middle of the night so I could go to my break time asked me about my fragrance because the whole booth was smelling a lot and I told her it was Dior.

Now I think she was making fun of me.

I’m new to fragrances and I got a kit sampler. How do I apply these ones? Do I put on my palms then rub my neck? My favourite fragrances in the kit are L’Homme eau de toilette, Pavo Rabonne 1 mill, Prada, Acqua do Gio, and Eternity Calvin Klein

>>17353027
yes but you don't really smell it. no idea in which way you're comparing fahrenheit to ombre leather and unless you elaborate i can only say that both have patchouli, jasmine, vetiver and amber.

After sampling dozens of high end fragrances fahrenheit is still my favorite. Nothing like it. Ombre leather is kinda in the same genre

>>17353070
afaik the core accord of fahrenheit was created by accident, from mixing several different frag samples. that might be why it's so unique

the gasoline in fahrenheit (comes from high dosed violet iirc) is quite unique, maybe check out midnight stag, its supposed to smell like a car workshop but i havent tried it yet.

Following up on this; I went to a retailer and tried a couple of fragrances. I liked Dior Homme more than Dior Homme Sport, and I am about to order some 1 Million.
Having said that, should I go for the standard 1 Million or 1 Million Parfum? I liked them both but was worried that Parfum may be too strong.

Apply to hair behind ears.
This way it will last longer.

If you are rubbing do not rub to hard. If by rubbing you heat the frag you'll ruin it.
If someone says you should not rub tell them to fuck off.

But best performance is from hair and clothes. If you spray clothes, spray from a distance otherwise you may get visible stains.

>>17353996
I saw a review on fragrantica that says The One is the most tragic scent ever made. It’s fucking irresistible, distinct, sexy, yet still wearable and versatile… but the performance is just pathetic. I own the EDT and it’s my favourite scent, period, but the other day I literally gave myself 5 sprays and my girlfriend didn’t detect it on me when she came over like 30 minutes later. It’s cuckoldry in a bottle.

>Ruskie pretending he doesn't enjoy raping and murdering Ukrainian children

>>17354212
Women actually really dislike Aventus, or at least don't give a fuck about it

Maybe dousing yourself in it would work? Like 10+ sprays, on clothes and hair
>>
>>17354209
Acquo di gio Profumo is exactly what the doctor ordered, unfortunately it just got discontinued in favour of the new eau de Parfum, which doesn’t do the same trick from what I hear. You should hustle and try to find a bottle on eBay or something before it’s too late
>>
all I smell is vaguely sweet water

>>17354223
I tried Profumo a couple months ago and literally smelled nothing after spraying my arm three times. I don't understand
>>
>>17354223
>>17354226
What about Profondo?
>>
>>17354222
I’ve heard mixed things. Generally people say the EDP lasts a bit longer, but still stays very close to the skin.

I’ve considered just going all-out with my EDT and dousing myself in it like that. I’m hesitant because it has a distinct sweetness to it, I’m worried it would turn into a cloying syrupy mess of a smell if I overdo it.
>>
>>17354229
What a shame. The One is literally perfect and the final answer to "which frag do girls like". Except they can't fucking smell it
>>
>>17354227
That’s a summer fragrance through and through. Profumo is (was) such a killer due to its versatility
>>
>>17354238
The issue is I seemingly can't smell Profumo
>>
>>17354209
Eau sauvage might be what you’re looking for. Very citrusy and definitely good for the office. Might not be as much on the seductive side since it’s one of those legacy fragrances, but in my experience women don’t respond well to scents that are engineered to be obnoxiously seductive anyway.

I suggest you just browse through the sampler section on fragrancenet and order a lineup based on what you think the person would/could like. If you don’t mind spending north of 100 dollars you could probably put together a whole advent calendar of fragrances for somebody.

Me and my girlfriend looked at actual sampler sets recently and were disappointed with the selection. The top designers only seem to put their weakest EDTs in there for the normies, but there’s probably some okay niche sets out there if you look hard enough
>>
>>17353849
not even, just tell the derm uh it showed up recently and they take a biopsy because it could be malignant thus it's medical and covered by insurance

I guess, depends which one though. I used to get complimented on Fierce back when I wore it years ago, some "sexy" frags are hyped for a reason
I like frags that are sensual and attractive even personally though, I like smelling them on myself

Le Male Parfum might be my next purchase..

Eau des Baux is fucking gorgeous and delicious
>>

The warm spicy opening of cinnamon is close to the powdery dry coriander of LADDM and ACDD, but from the tobacco I get sweetness of birch tar, root beer, that is in Lonestar and I think the other two, but only a hint of smokiness instead of overbearing leather. It maintains some of that sweetness through the drydown of amber that they all share.

The tiny dabber bottle is not easy to apply, but I'll have to give it a few more comparisons with the full bottle. I went with ACDD because I found the powderiness of LADDM a bit too heavy where ACDD has an edge. Don't know what I'll do with the $20 floral soap, however.

Superb sour vetiver. No sweetness, has some Provence vibe to it.

too sweet and dated

just dated

Bourbon smells like eternal natural classic with no anchors to any specific era.
Also no booziness at all.

Sundowner is the best tobacco frag out there, in my opinion. It doesn't try to be straight tobacco only, but it adds just the right amounts of everything else. Some spices, some sweetness (but way less than e.g. Red Tobacco, Pure Havane, Naxos), beautiful sandalwood.

>>17355068
Maybe you should get something more intriguing or complex than a Roja offering to restore your sense of smell.

>>17355249
Common theme with all of Tauer's frags is the spice opening. All of them have that, including stuff like Une Rose de Kandahar. It sometimes doesn't mix well with the heart/base and makes the opening weird, but at least you know you got an authentic Tauer frag.

He's pretty fit for sure but his stance makes him look buffer than he really is.

I havent drank the koolaid, trust me. All I am saying is the guy in the ad is ottermode (look how he pushes out his arms making his biceps look bigger, slouched pose for bigger neck effect etc.). There are many people in my gym who mog him, so all I am saying his body doesnt really stand out like it used ro back then. That doesnt mean that you cant get pussy by being average, I mean fat people fuck too so...
>>

He's not "pushing out" his delts or traps though. The man lifts hard, eats carefully, and may have been on a cycle or two or he's just got good genes. You need to delete instagram

>>17355459
there are many people in my gym who mog me, but i mog the average le male bottle, and that's already enough to be way above average.
when i went to college and walked across the campus, it was filled with pretty women. i'd say a good 70% were fuckable. natural beauties of normal bmi. why am i going off on this tangent? because once i hit the "real world", where all the average people are combined, i realized that most people are fat or ugly, even women. it's just that at my college the women were from a wealthier background and therefore had an unfair advantage when it came to health, fitness, fashion and what not. the studies confirming a correlation between iq and bmi are also there. it all skewed my perception of reality and i always thought there were plenty of fish in the sea.
and you're falling for the same thing - you compare yourself to the people at your gym. in the real world, you'd be far above average, even if you get mogged at your gym. the environment matters.

Anyone tried the new(?) one? I have a sample on the way.

>It all started when I visited the Louvre in Paris in 2020. There I stumbled over a section that I never visited before although I was in the Louvre a couple of times. The section was all about Persian empires and history. A revelation!
I was mesmerized by the grandeur, by the statues, and the cultural heritage, spanning more than 5000 years. I began to discover more, reading books and I ended up discovering the palace with the name of Golestan in Teheran in pictures. The palace, also known as the Rose Garden Palace, built in the 16th century, with its ornamental and figurative paintings on tiles, was pure inspiration. Golestan literally translates to city of flowers or garden of flowers.
Although I could not travel to Iran so far, I created a perfume that brings me there. It is an invitation to breathe the perfumed air of a flower garden, in freedom.

Had to search for this one again, as an example. User Deutsch100 finding a fragrance which has not been released in a place where it isn't supposed to be released (Gaultier 2 re-release). This man singlehandedly reviewed a fragrance across the pond before it was for sale, because he was totally able to find it in an LA frag store. Combine that with the AI-generated looking profile pic, and this might be the least trustworthy reviewers ever. Yet, a million balloons mean people really like that review.

First of all, bi was introduced here way before that. Secondly you get your panties twisted because one guy makes a funny post that gets memed later.

I might have been the third or forth person here to have bought bi, in august last year. The original bi anon bought and posted about it earlier in the year or even before that. Then there was sporadic talk and shilling from OG and maybe another anon. The proverbial snowball grew more rapidly in late summer/fall as more anons got it.

We’re talking about two different fragrances here. Guerlain vetiver (classic from the 50s) and Guerlain vetiver extreme (2014) I don’t think Guerlain vetiver extreme is dated at all and I still don’t believe you’ve tried it if you’re saying it’s dated. Or maybe the mature notes are throwing you off

What the fuck are you talking about, I'm asking you about perfumes
>>
>>17356013
The same idea plays out in all 3 imo but the edp strikes the best balance between the base of the fragrance and the citrus as I described it. Imo it creates a long lasting citrus by almost infusing it into the base. They play well off one another, the base resins and woods aren't too heavy and the citrus isn't as fleeting. In the edt I think it leans more into the citrus so isn't as dark, more fresh. In the parfum it leans more into the base and resins. All have a similar structure and idea, but it depends what you want to lean in more, do you want fresh and more warm weather leaning, do you want something a bit more versatile, or do you want something a bit darker that leans colder weather.

interesting, I tried LDDM and found it very mediocre, yet unique for sure. meanwhile ACDD is absolutely amazing, idk why they create such different images even though they're very similar as fragrances, but found it def signature worthy. loved sundowner as well, one of the best boozy comfy tobacco frags without leaning too sweet. it's real swetness and not synthetic one, but had a huge problem with performance, around 4 hours or so only. lonestar memories is another one of my favs from tauer, it smells like a specific play dough I used to have, creating this feeling of a young boy trying to be a man, like going out with your dad hunting, but still carrying the play dough and crayons on your backpack to draw and play. absolutely lovely smell.
>>17355322
my only issue with sundowner is really the performance. for me, it nails the balance between tobacco and sweetness very well, but lacks that lasting punch. 2011 pure havane usually lasts me 8h, but it's way rougher around the edges. on the opposite side, naxos is too well blended, lacks edgy spicy charismatic side...good, but bland.

Everything I look up on fragrantica is labeled as 'Warm Spicy' which is too cloying for my country's climate, while some "woody" fragrances I tried (like Givenchy Boisee / 1 million Lucky) are more warm spicy than woody to my nose.


My favourite woody fragrance is Emporio Armani He, and currently use Nike Indigo.
I work mostly outside.
Suggestions?

>cheap niche
>known perfumer
>30 euro


yeah thats a recipe for disaster

i feel like the best hope for cheap and good is heavily discounted or unknown brand with unknown perfumers.

Only France so far, though. Can't get that sample pack.

Sundowner lasted really long on me (and so does Pure Havane), so I had no issues there. Might just have been lucky.

Try Lalique Equus EdP.

Eros smells like vanilla bile, specifically my bile (which is the only bile smell I know). Every time somebody says that Eros actually smells good I whip out that blue sample and spray some on my wrist, and every time it smells like vanilla bile. Then again it was voted as the #1 fragrance that smells like Axe deodorant in a blind test, so it must have something going for it.

Look on Amazon or ebay, there are still some bottles of Lauren out there.
Stock up on a couple bottles and they'll last her a long time
