>>17357090The Fragrance Groups 101 chart
>>17357090The fragrance flowchart for beginners
Started with my "collection" this year. Really getting into it, it's kinda fun like with spirits>haveChanel EdPGio EdTDG The One EdP>will buy nextSpicebomb Extreme. Liked it's opening, dry down was too sweet on paper but I need to try. >want (to try)Chanel Allure ExtremeYSL Bleu ElectriqueOud for Greatness/GloryAventus or L'Aventure clone>???Anything else I should consider from designers/mainstream or good clones?Also looking for something musky clean, something I can use in/on my bed. Will Khiel do the trick?
>>17357106I reccomend you sniff a lot and avoid buying too much for now. since you're still new to frags your taste may change and overcomitting to mass pleasing designers can be bad if you turn into a niche autist later onhard to recc anything based on your picks. try This is Him though, I think it's better than spicebomb extreme and less overplayed
>>17357106dior homme intense is a must smell imo, my favorite fragrances are all from niche houses, mostly Serge Lutens, Kilian and Guerlain but dior homme intense will always be part of my collection, such a great quality for a designer scent
Why are there no good pine sap scents out there? I tried alot, Arso, some of the Pinewards, Cape Heartache and some more. Any recommendations?
>>17357113Thanks, will keep in mind. >>17357119Already smelled DHI before buying the one. Didn't like it though. Smells undefined, weak and somewhat feminine. Guerlain is something I wanted to try but they didn't have unfortunately. Fucking store was 80% for women.
What's a good unscented deodorant?
>>17357113I'm still disappointed that they changed the fragrance on the EDT a couple of years back.I've just bought my brother Escentric Molecules 01 for Christmas. He's a nerd so I think he'll care more about the 'science' than the smell.
>>17357106The Dior line-up in general. If you didn't like DHI, there's still the Eau Sauvage and Sauvage lines. Eau Sauvage is a classic fragrance line, maybe a bit oldschool for your taste, while Sauvage is a modern hypermasculine line. Chanel stuff is great, so is Guerlain, although Guerlain offers a lot of oldschool fragrances and focuses on gourmands with the newer stuff. Some people will insist on adding Hermes and Cartier to the "must-try" list of designers, but personally I found Cartier surprisingly hard to find and the Hermes mainstream frags not that appealing.>>17357161Pic related. They might have recently changed the bottle design. There's also an anti-perspirant version of it, if you prefer that.
>>17357106Also don't bother with L'Aventure. It is okay at best and closer to other Aventus clones, not that close to Aventus. Smelling Aventus ruins Aventus clones, in all honesty, even if you don't like Aventus (like I do).
>>17357177Whoops, I meant antitranspirant version.
>>17357161Alum Crystal Deodorant
>>17357139Then fuck you niggahonestly i doubt you are going to find any guerlain in a regular store, you will probably have to order samplers online instead
Smells amazing but the bottle design is so fucking awful.
>>17357202nah, guerlain isn't that rare in stores, at least here in Europe. every sephora I go to has at least some of their more modern frags like the l'homme ideal line. one of them even had the whole absoluts d'orient line or whatever it's called
>>17357220I agree, idk what they were thinking with the cap
>buy bottle of PDM Herod>absolutely love the smell>packages comes with free sample of Pegasus Exclusiv>like it even more than Herodoh no
>>17357228is this chart about bottlees? put rubber a*men in the lowest tier. easily the worst sprayer i've seenalso a*men is kinda odd. feels like it shouldn't mix well but it does. a shame it's being discontinued and the non-rubber bottles are unavailable already
Fragrance for clubbing/parties?Considering the following:- Sauvage EDP- LNDLH bleu electriqueI am leaning towards the Sauvage as the LNDLH does project that much. I am open to any alternatives or any flankers
>>17357228Bleu de Chanel has the best cap imo, I wish more bottles had a magnetic cap.
>>17357266Eau Sauvage and Sauvage have a magnetic cap as well (it even aligns the CD logo). Missoni Wave has a magnetic cap that doesn't align and freely spins. The TdH cap is kinda cool with that rotation gimmick.
>>17357256Dylan Blue, Bogart Silver Scent
>>17357267the TdH cap is peak practical I think. no way to lose it anywhere
Tried 2 by CdGIt smeĺls nothing like the descriptions.I dont know how fags can write poems about fragrances that turn out to be so mediocre.Its the smell i find in my grandmas wardrobe, some chemicals to keep the bugs away from the clothes.
Tried also Ganymede.At first it smells salty, and metallicSomething you could smell at a dentist or in a hospitalThen it evolves in some sort of salty ketchup
>>17357192Seconding this, I have the smelliest armpits and this is the only thing That worked for me, it's like magic
got a 9/10 gf smelling like alcohol, cigar smoke, and dirty and sweat. You are fags
>>17357136Polo green and Caron yatagan are good pine scents. >>17357119Dior homme original smells pretty gay to my nose. I’ll probably sell my bottle of it eventually. Maybe intense is better?>>17357306Ganymede grew on me. Makes me want to sample bi
>>17357346Girls the smellier the better , at least for me.But for me I want to smell like a catacomb covered with musk and books
>>17357350I never got to try Dior Homme sadly, DHI definitely smells gay but i like that because i like men that look like women, to each their own i guess.its the only designer fragrance i wear, ive grown too obsessed with certain niche houses that most designer fragrances just seem boring to me now
>>17357247How strong is Herod? I heard that they reformulated it a while ago and that it fucking sucks now
fragbois, how is Eugen doing?
>>17357350Bois Imperial is mich better than Ganymede.
>>17357405He looks an awful lot like Zalenskyy these days.Whether that's good or not is up to you
>>17357177Isn't everyone wearing Sauvage right now?Eau Sauvage I'll try though. >>17357178Maybe you're right.
Someone gifted me a bottle of D&G The One.Not sure of what to think of it.
>>17357515Be grateful faggot
>>17357489Yes sauvage is very much a meme now. Men overdid it to the point that women can now call it out by name, the ultimate death knell of a fragrance
Tried Encre Noire A L'Extreme today and it has a beautiful woody fresh scent that is not really welcoming but that smells beautiful. I wear fragrances for myself but I cannot see how any girl will feel attracted by this.Also, I'm almost 31 and It seems that every fragrance That I like is supposed to be for people much more older than me , but I hate fragrances like scandal or this is him.Anything that's similar to Dior homme parfum, eau des baux or the one I mentioned earlier but with a younger profile? Club de Nuit intense limited edition would be a good option? Limited edition or pure parfum is better?
>>17357515Who gifted it to you? It's marketed as middle tier designer scent, but the scent DNA is walmart tier.
>>17357538It fucking sucks because l like sauvage...also, I really like this ad because it explains what fragrances are all abouthttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2sT74WuijwYI still want to pull the trigger on it, even though I will smell like everybody else...
What fragrance can I give my dad? He is in his 50s
>>17357561Get sausage elixir. It mogs the rest of the flankers and it makes every other sauvage wearing fuckboy smell like they’re wearing a cheap dupe
>>17357579Picrel, it will certainly bring back memories from partying in the 90s
>>17357489How often have you smelled Sauvage if you're being honest, though? It's perfectly wearable unless you want to be unique in a large group. The smaller the group, the more likely nobody wears Sauvage and you will able to stand out.>>17357583Also true. Sauvage Elixir is noticeably different without deviating too much from the formula of a hypermasculine loud modern crowdpleaser. It's less popular with the average Sauvage wearer and more popular among all frag reviewers.
>>17357583I have thought about getting elixir since in theory it is 'just' a more concentrated version but apparently it is targetter for middle eastern people and smells more 'heavy'...not my cup of tea to be frank. Will I stand out with the EDP or same story as EDT? I want to get this frag as my clubbing/partying perfume if that matters>>17357591Also tagging you anon, also want your opinion
>>17357596I have the EDP. Ironically, I think it projects much closer than the other flankers. It’s probably the most appropriate one for more casual situations. It has a faint hint of vanilla that isn’t present in the EDT — you probably won’t detect it if you’re not looking for it. Apparently the Parfum amps up the vanilla even further, which would turn my head
>>17357600Shit...so it's EDT or Elixir, no middle ground huh lmao! Also what do you mean "would turn my head"? In a good way or it would make you dizzy?
>>17357602I’m saying I like the vanilla.
>>17357602>>17357603Bear in mind, the Elixir is totally separate from the Parfum. There are 4 flankers altogether
>>17357605Indeed, does the Parfum project better than the rest?
>>17357520 South east Queensland
>>17357610I’ll be honest man I don’t think you need to worry about projection with sauvage. It’s probably the most dependably in-your-face shit that has ever gone mainstream, even the closer sitting EDP is a beast compared to most frags you’re likely to find.
>>17357625That settles it then, since projection is more or less equal across the board I'll get the one I enjoy the best :) thank you for the help fren! Here is Johnny Depp passed out as a bonus
>>17357266Magnetic caps are great, too bad they're mostly used on npc frags
Ormonde Jayne and Parfum D’Empire are the best modern fragrance houses
>>17357228Eau sauvage is the GOAT. Art Deco masterpiece. TDH sprayer is different but kinda cheap. BDC is boring. As far as minimalism I prefer egoiste. Fahrenheit is great. Eros is gaudy as fuck. Issey cap is garbage. Allure i don’t really like. The OG clear one is okay.
>>17357610>Parfum project better than the restNope. The edt.
>>17357381Never tried the OG as I only sniffed it in-store a few weeks ago and managed to find a sale so snapped it up.Lasted pretty long I could still detect it 8 hours after applying three spirits. To me it smells like a more upscale cream soda
>>17357544at 31 you can pull off anything except for maybe total grandpa shit. people saying modern designer scents smell "mature" are retarded. DHP and Eau dex Baux are both modern smelling frags, easy to wear by anyone at your ageclub de nuit is a step down from your other choices, very loud and trashytry This is Him, Tobacco Vanille, Ombre Leather, Fat Electrician, Tom Ford Noir, Terre d'Hermes and Grey Vetiver
Should I get DHS, Eau d'Issey or CAHSEE?
>>17357673>Eros is gaudy as fuckjust like the frag itself, that's why it's a perfect fit a nd why I like it ironically enough. looks like something straight out of Scarface
>>17357719DHS. the other two have shit performance nowadays
>>17357723What about Fierce and BdC EDTLooking for fresh frags in case that wasn't clear
>>17357727BdC is okay but I feel like it's oversaturated at this point and about to be on the way out. I'd get DHS
>>17357731Yeah I wonder what the next Chanel hit is gonna beGot an opinion on Fierce?
>>17357596There's nothing middle eastern about it. The opening is spicy, sure, but the drydown is licorice showergel. Which middle eastern person smells like showergel? Sauvage EdT has that synthetic pepper opening and I don't see how that would be any less middle eastern.>>17357629That is what you always should do. If you have the option to just test the fragrances, test them and figure out what you like.
>>17357305Yep, never ever take the flowery reviews on Fragrantica seriously. Its like a terrible creative writing club forum or something
>>17357305the only trustworthy reviews are written by the gay dragon from basenotes
Fuck it, saw some newest reviews of Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, looks fucking terrible. Almost all games, movies, series, music today are unbearable bad. Thankfully it's most def my age at 30 and fragrances that push me to be a more out going person, the good games, movies, music from 30/40 years ago are long gone. Time to find my own destiny and stop wasting my time with modern media full of lgbtQ and political agendas.
Anyone smelled this? I think it's lovely.
>>17357816Quite good, but I think Whispers in the library is a little bit better.
Chergui doesn’t smell like tobacco at all
>>17357544>Tried Encre Noire A L'ExtremeThrow that shit off anon, I think I'm allergic to it, could it be possible to be allergic just to one fragrance? I had a running nose for hours after testing it in my hand and smell it
>>17357305much prefer those poem or more abstract reviews of fragrances than stale "peach aldehydes metallic blah blah", but I do agree with you on ganymede. try b683 and bois imperial, they have the woody backbone but bois is more aromatic with basil and stronger on akigalawood, and b683 retains that metallic opening with a leather spicy drydown>>17357544please yourself not the crowd. scandal smells like candy that was made in a lab and underwent no taste tests>>17357579chypre palatin, tdh, ombré leather
Is a 75ml bottle of YSL’s Tuxedo for 118€ a decent price? Has it ever been cheaper or more expensive in the official YSL store?>won’t buy it from anywhere else but the YSL store since they give the option of decanting the fragrance purchased with a sample
im buying another bottle of chanel allure sport because last one i had got dropped inside of a travel bag and broke the nozzle and it slowly evaporated, ashould i but any other fragances for this colder times or christmas parties?
>>17357161Toms of Maine unscented. I've had bad reactions to deo with baking soda in it and other deo in general. Some even made my lymph nodes swell up in my armpits, really scared me. Toms works well and doesn't cause rashes.
>>17357579What's his job and style? Chanel - Bleu de Chanel Parfum is a safe choice. Nicolai - New York intense, if he works in office and is a bit more dressed up.Creed - Royal oud.

Fuck it, I know literally nothing about fragrances. Recommend me shit that I can get started with. The last time I got a nice Cologne was at the mall when an indian jipped me for 40 bucks on a 20 dollar Nautica bottle bc I didn't know what I was doing. Other than that the closest I come to picking out how I smell is when I debate if I want old spice deod or the twofer Irish spring at Walgreens.I've been paying more attention to my presentation recently and decided to go smell shit at the Sephora in the mall near me. Tried a couple of smells, I liked pic real the most out of them. Smelled very fresh and "springy"I see a lot of ppl recommending ferinheight it was okay, very spicy compared to the others. I liked the red eros as well ( my gf REALLY liked this, Idk what you call this type of scent but it's more for a "going out" sorta situation) there was a tom Ford one that smelled like strait pipe tobbacco. Gimme shit that I can wear just out in public. I don't want to smell like a fruitcake when I go to the doctor's to get a refill on my adderalls
>>17358193Oh btw, since I just read the pastebinI'm 23, I work at a moving company part time 3 days a week and will be going back to uni this spring. I live in N.W. G.A so winters never get >40°f (if it really matters)I have a long term gf.Looking to spend up to $150 on a few fragrances if I like themI enjoy going hiking and I've climbed various mountains so anything that can mimic the smell of the great outdoors is awesome in my book Specific scents: pine, woodfire smoke, morning dew, coffee, and if there is anything out there that's just strait green tea scent extract that's been bottled...I would love to buy it.
>>17358193Bleu de Chanel is something I'd recommend to everyone who is considering their first fragrance. It's from Chanel, so you'll never get a bad quality bottle. The scent profile is very mass appealing so to most people you won't smell bad. I'd suggest the Eau de Parfum as it strikes the balance between rich and light. If you're not a fan of that, try the Dior Sauvage line or YSL Y line. Those two both have similar strengths. Cool Water is very fresh, green, and aquatic. Very classic scent profile, and most people wouldn't have a problem with it. It's also like $30 for 200 ml. For a similar scent profile, but done smoother and much much more expensive, try Green Irish Tweed.Silver Mountain Water smells very much like fresh air to me. There's also a pronounced tea note. This one is very expensive, so maybe you'll consider it down the line. For a cheaper, slightly different, and much stronger alternative, try Club de Nuit Sillage. Another, even cheaper alternative is Cremo Silver Water.By the Fireplace is a pretty convincing smoky scent. While you're at it, also try Jazz Club which is from the same line. That one is boozy tobacco. Coffee Break, from the same line, is supposed to smell like a coffee shop. To me, it's more vanilla, but give it a try. The same company also has a scent called Macha Meditation. I haven't tried that one, but it's supposed to be a very close Macha green tea smell. Bois Imperial is a bit of a meme right now, but it's genuinely a very convincing woody scent. Literally smells like standing in a forest. A couple of random stuff to try: Acqua Di Gio is literally the best selling men's fragrance of all time. The base is aquatic and fresh. The whole line is high quality or at least none of them are bad. The Light Blue line is citrusy and aquatic. Very fresh, very safe. Dolce Gabbana The One EDP is spicy tobacco. Very good for a date. Versace Eros Flame (the red one) is indeed very good, but also try the entire line.
>>17357544Tried Toy Boy? Only gave a first sniff yesterday, but opening was alright, dark spicy rose, somewhat reminiscent of DHP. Became more rosy like montal -intense cafe without the gourmand stuff.
>>17357703bless you anon, ill be sampling it then>>17358193Look at the Margiela Replica line, very nice and wearable frags. My personal favorite is Soul of the Forest and by the fireplace, i would try to smell them before you buy them though
>>17358266Is Eros flame better than Eros edt?
>>17358279No. Flame is nothing.
>>17358279Some of people would say yes. Personally, I'd say they're just different. The edt is a clubbing fragrance for sure, but with one or two sprays, there's no reason that it's can't be a daily wear. But definitely sample before buying
>>17357515I know I'd never buy a bottle, but I get why people like it. If you decide you don't like it, you should give it to somebody else, and tell them they're the third person to own it and that it should keep moving from person to person until it gets to somebody who it clicks with.Next time I'm at the mall I might spray it again to hone in on why I don't like it, and why it's almost good.
looking for something jasmine-y for hot weather anyone have any ideas?
>>17358408JeP Neroli Intense or Eau Sauvage
>>17358430any idea where i can get my hands on JeP frags? their website is local france only
Has anybody tried the pineward EDT's? I can snag some for 30€, really intrested in delfino and noki.
>>17357816I have and love it! Great for an afternoon outing in the autumn/winter seasons
>>17357784The best reviewers are definitely the gay dragon furry on basenotes and Aaron Terence Hughes on youtube
>>17357784>gyno schizo is back at it with the shilling
>>17358436I bought one at some online discounter store. might be harder to find outside of Europe
>>17357830I don't care how good it smells, that is the most pretentious, punchable name for a fragrance ever, and I've heard some doozies
>>17358439They brand themself to be a fraghouse for pinescent lovers. But they pinescents are mediocre, shit longevity.I slowly realise that niche is literally a meme to sell an average scented water for the double or trible the price of a designer. Good pine scents i tried are Bottega Veneta Pour Homme.If you search for other weird niche type of scents and don't care for good longevity Pineward might be ok.
>>17358408Nicolai - Vie de Chateau IntenseEtruscan water, for a bit different jasmine, more masculine.>>17358430No prominent jasmine in those.
My gf creams herself for the newest version of DHS for some reason, but I'm tired of it. Anything else with a similar dna I could try?
Meeting a high level exec from some scandinavian tech company for a final interview.Upper management giggWhat frag to wear?I know how to deal with Americans but I don't have much experience with northern europeans.Any scandis here with office compliant advice?Here are the options I have on hand:Montabaco IntensivoCreed AventusFucking FabulousNasomatto PardonTauer ACDDI've got some BR540 coming but it won't be here in time.
>>17358219>Outdoorsy woodsy Caron yatagan polo green >outdoorsy beach/sportyBvlgari aqva
one for the streetsone for the sheets
>>17358562i wanted to recommend NYI but from your list idk. if you have the balls to pull off ACDD at a job interview go ahead. if you never met the guy before i'd go for the least offensive choice.>>17358573only smelled the regular no limits and i really liked it. don't understand why the reviews are so bad.
>>17358562Probably Aventus, unless you're a woman, in which case you should really get that BR540 asap. The other stuff is great, but better for once you have the job.
anyone tried warm black and vibrant cities tulum by zara? they're supposedly decent and on sale tomorrow
>>17358563Also feel like I should add Lalique Encre noir is woodsy too. Anyway. I’m going to wear Caron yatagan for thanksgiving today.
>>17358591>I’m going to wear Caron yatagan for thanksgiving today.based. love that scent but still waiting for a good deal, prices have been fucked since the start of the year
damn can't decide if i should cop a*men. it's kinda fucked but kinda snice too
>>17358597Only the original version that says Angel Men.
Ever bought a fragrance because of a girl?
>>17358562Montabaco Intensivo, if the tobacco isn't too crazy. Or Creed Aventus.Or bleu de chanel.t. Swede.
>>17358614Montabaco intensive literally smells like cold cigarettes and shaving cream. It reminds me of my dad in the most nostalgic way
>>17358622Most men here using tobacco use snus and basically only women and Slavs smoke cigarettes. So it could be a negative association even if it smells good.
I am going to an interview for an internship next week, in finance, i'm a 22 yr old guy which of the frags should I choose or get someting new>chanel antaeus>ELDO rien intense incense>guerlain l'homme ideal EDP>davidoff zino>penhaligon's mr sam>polo supreme oud >TF tobacco vanille Also should i buy cerruti 1881 ? It's on sale and smels decent I was able to detect it on my wrist after 20 hours lol
>>17358614>t. Swede.I would dream to invade your country. Also there are almost no good/realistic smelling tobacco scent. Montabaco intensive is mostly a shavingcream scent. Red Tobacco, Naxos brutal sweet bubble gum scents.
>>17358629yeah cerruti 1881 is nice
>>17358605warm black supposedly has decent longevity, tulum not so much. but i'm aware of that issue with zara. still for tulum 12€ and for warm black 7€ it can't be that bad.
>>17358634>DHSIt's a more zesty fruity version of DH2020, absolute seductive with good longevity. If you want something similar but with more depth, definitely Aventus. The Tycoon from St Giles is a gentlemens version of Aventus, if you wanna take it even more further.
>>17358643For some reason my girl doesn't like Aventus. I have a decant I never use
>>17358643Usually redheads have shit feet but this one is impressive
>>17358643She's realistically a 9/10Also, what's some quality mandarin/clementine frags for the summer? Max price point around €1 per ml so €100 for 100ml
Thoughts on Zoologist?
>>17358622montabaco parfum just smells like leather
>>17358518nobody cares you blogging fucking retard, the pine ones are extraits, I asked about EDT which is their summer collection, I wont even try to argue about anything else you brainrotted ape that doesnt know what noseblind means.
>>17357796read guenon. evola is a meme.
>>17358776Guenon is a meme too. Traditionalism as a whole is.
>>17358800slit your throat.
>>17358802What the fuck is that thing?!Also, what does it wear?
>>17358803I am not sure if it's a man or a woman at this point...
>>17358802You are a walking meme. Take a look in the mirror, larper.>b-but muh sophia perennislmao
Which to wear today boys? I like the YSL the most I think
>>17358774>shit longevity and sillage>nobody else smell you>must be noseblindnessOk, retard.
DH2020 is not very original, but it smells fucking good. Too bad the longevity and projection are quite poor.
>>17359088Thanks for report, do you consider it a blind buy? what about DH intense?
>>17359093>blind buyLiterally nobody will ever be offended by this frag so sure, go ahead. There's a really smooth quality to DH that makes it both masculine and very "reassuring", it's not an in-your-face men's frag like, I don't know, Eros might be for example.>DH intenseCompletely different. Sweet, slightly powdery, it's very soft too but in a different way. Personally the drydown gets tiresome and I'm fed up with DHI after a while, but it's a good scent. Not a blind buy though.I'm waiting to try DHS, if anyone knows how similar it is to DH2020 and especially if the performance is better, please tell me
>>17359098Another anon answered this above, picrel :)
>>17359134>with good longevityIf it's anything like DH that's nowhere near good, but I'll check it out, thanks m8
Opinions on this
>>17359200Sir, do the needful
>>17359261>why yes, i spritz Eros, Naxos, all Amouages, Spicebombs, Red Tobacco, Oud Wood, Layton, The One, Baccarat Rouge, Grand Soir, 1 Million, Erba Pura>and look perplexed at people who only wear green fresh scents
>>17358581>only smelled the regular no limits and i really liked it.Then you'll love this one. I fell in love with A*Men at first, then regular NL, then this one. Alberto Morillas is a literal king of fresh. >don't understand why the reviews are so bad.Their feelings get upset at the tongue-in-cheek marketing with which PP is associated. It's a pleb filter, honestly..>>17358643cunny>>17359200Arguably the best version of tihs fragrance. Not worth the premium if you have the option of the regular one at a low price vs this at way higher. The problem with the original is the toxic opening, which doesn't last more than 15 mins anyway.
>>17358145Keep Cool Water, Cremo, and D&G, the rest are redundant. Consider not buying Sauvage in any of its formulations, GIT, or Santal 33. My girlfriend has Santal 33 and it's literally indistinguishable from Cremo. Consider Sung Homme, Fahrenheit, or Bois Imperial
Let’s say you wanted to make a drink that tastes like your favorite fragrance smells. What would you learn/read up on?
>>17359312Chemistry, meaning molecules and their interactions/bonds with taste bud receptors. With that said I love the smell of orange so I just put some orange juice in my vodka, why do research lmao nigga
>try on a dozen interesting frags for the gf>tells me she still prefers bleu de chanel
>>17359358Is it true the price of bleu de chanel gone up? I still have a full bottle from release
>>17359200>Based Eugene blew up the whole bottle with a blowtorch
>>17359358>gf basically just likes A&F or anything that smells similar>doesn't appreciate my patrician taste when I wear fougeres, chypres, and orientalsWhat a waste.

Why is Dior homme intense smell like a homosexuals handbag?
>>17359358>>17359446What’s good? My partner calls my favorite (Dior homme original) very gay smelling. Like a man in drag. She’s silly. What do you like that your partner dislikes?
>smells like nothing>lasts 5 seconds
>>17358581>only smelled the regular no limits and i really liked it. don't understand why the reviews are so bad.ikr, I tried both no limits and though they were good and quite unique for designer frags. performance is kinda shit though>>17358629go with antaeus, it's bold and confident.
>>17357093Do you have one of these for women
any fragrances for the autumn / winter midland?
>>17359531Buy the Parfum then.
>>17359788no, i dont think i will.
bought picrel the ultimate normie frag but it smells so fucking divine it's unreal
>>17359783Baraonda from Nasomatto
>>17359783jazz club unironicallyor something with oud
>>17358693Clementine California is really good. Atelier Cologne is overhyped trash in general, but some of their fresh citruses are top notch: Clementine California, the blood orange one. You can try them out pretty much anywhere perfumes are sold.
Any recommendations for a smoker?Tried the following:>The dreamerFavorite fragance and combines well my natural ashtray smell but has low sillage and longevity.>BijanI guess this one is often recommended cause middle easterners smoke too much, non sequitur, too sweet anyways.>JoopSmells like horny aunt, at least it's strong.
Bought BdC Parfum and DHS 2021. I'm tired of niche scents, time to npcmaxx
>>17359939Thank you friend :)
>>17359961Unironically this! You should buy what you like, even if it means a frag is mainstream
>>17359524>What do you like that your partner dislikes?Literally everything I own, it's either too strong or too masculine
>>17359524>My partner calls my favorite (Dior homme original) very gay smellingHe is right.DH and Prada lhomme are vomit inducing garbage.>>17359531Correct.>>17359788Same garbage.>>17359809Good idea.>>17359837A fucking nutella. >>17359955>recommendations for a smokerkys

go on raw meat diet, fix T levels, don't use soap/shampoo and don't shower often and you will smell like a god theory
>>17360017My T is >900, haven't used shampoo in years, I've been told my skin smells good but I still prefer to smell like Aventus
>>17358081Hate Toms, their "unscented" deodorant smells like mosquito repellant.
>>17357346Sure, you did.
>>17357579TDH ParfumGrey Vetiver
Is this worth it? I heard than on its own it has inmense sillage and performance and that is simply a subtle delicious woody scent, and that if you use for layering, it increases the performance of other fragrances by a lot. True?
>>17360103No. If you want ISO E Super then get some concentrate and medical/cosmetic alcohol for 1/10 the price and make yourself x100 as much as a bottle of molecule will get you.
>after years of fragrance smelling i took the niche pill>tested alot of niche fragrances>expensive, poor performance, artsy way of smelling like shit, shit availability=muh exclusivity>smelled DHS, DH2020, DH, Aventus, Oud Minerale again>slowly realising that "niche" is a memeWhat's going on, is it normal to turn your back on niche and return to designers?
>>17360181you got filtered. dior homo intense
>>17360119Its the same thing?
>spray 16 times for complimentsthoughts?
anyone tried un oud by obvious? it's on sale for 88€ so i'm tempted but i havent been able to sample it yet
>>17358563>>17358591Also adding Guerlain mitsouko. Wearing the old Parfum today
>>17360249Blind buy and report back.
>>17360181Yeah, pretty much, after working at a niche store and personally owning something close to 100 fragrances I came to the same conclusion. Niche fragrances have usually unnecessary weight that only makes sense for a woman's fragrance. I like Aventus but that thing is made like a modern day eau sauvage. I'm wearing both and hardly anything else these days.
>>17360228its not my problem that other people smell bad
>>17360315i'm verry tempted but at the same time i could get oud for glory too and then buy dali pour homme and quorum with the remaining money.been wanting to buy a sample of un oud for the past 6 weeks but was too lazy, that's what i get for it
>>17360319>Niche fragrances have usually unnecessary weight that only makes sense for a woman's fragranceCan you please expand on this? Interesting take
>>17360375Not him but I agree; niche frags usually have a complex profile that tends to come off as thick and heavily layered, which makes them lack a kind of effortlessness that you can easily find in designer frags. A niche frag smells distinctive, it smells like you're "wearing a perfume" and usually doesn't lend itself to becoming a second skin.
>>17360181I know this is a crazy idea, but you could just buy what you like and enjoy it and stop caring about whether something is designer or niche. It seems like the majority of this "hobby" that is collecting fragrances is all about having expensive and rare frags to impress random strangers on the internet, regardless of whether you even like the scents themselves. The answer is to stop caring what other people think. They're probably assholes anyway.
>>17359955Jazz Club for cold weather, Luna Rossa Carbon for warm weather
>>17360375What >>17360386 said.
>>17360224yes. molecule 01 is litterly iso - e super.
>>17359358>>17359446>>17359451Women and normies in general tend to like very basic scents (sweet and spicy or marine/freshies) which is why most mall-core frags for big designers tend to stick to this proven formula. Even woody/mossy/leather frags send normies for a loop. More "advanced" scents (ouds, fougeres, etc.) to getting used to in order to truly appreciate. I will say tho that Bleu de Chanel is one of the few normie frags I actually like.
>>17360421Love eau de Guerlain. New York intense is nice but I enjoy the sandalwood in Guerlain heritage more. I’ll eventually get a bottle of nyi because I know it’s different enough from heritage. How is Bois imperial? Been wanting to try it, I like Ganymede but not for the price.
>>17360426Someone said BI reminded them of blue cheese and now I can't unsmell it
>>17360426Lol its not actually my photo, just saved it cause I like Bois Imperiale and etruscan water, so thought I might end up getting other stuff in this anon's collection.Anyways, Bois Imperiale is great, one of the few woody frags I really like. Got a 10ml and like it so much I bought the full size (which I rarely do). It lasts really long. Doesn't project a ton, but I don't really like stuff that projects a mile away anyways. Its very woody, with maybe a tiny bit of fresh spice.I havent tried Ganymede, but the longevity (usually the main thing that cheaper frags lack) is great with BI, so I don't know what paying extra for ganymede would buy you.
>>17360228>16 timesSissy sprayer.
>>17358193I love that fragrance, its a decent green scent.
anyone got anything for black friday?
>>17360451Based Trump watch. Ganymede is one of the best sea scents I’ve tried. It isn’t marketed as such but so it is.
Which one do I blind buy? I'm looking for a Christmassy fragrance
Someone recommended me Voyage d'Hermes here but I forgot to ask, which version should I go for? EDT, EDP or Perfume? I'm new to frags, is the only difference how long they last?
>>17360408The thing is I read about people That say it's not the same thing. But I guess is people trying to justify the buy.In any case, layering with iso e super does anything?
>>17360492Not santal majuscule. Worst blind buy I ever did. Smell isn't gourmand at all. Sort of reminds me of margarine? Heavy and artificial
is uncut gem mid enough that it's not even worth paying for a sample
>>17360519Thanks for the advice, now I have to pick between these two
>>17359939Orange sanguine smelled like cheap orange drink (not soda or juice but that shitty kids drink). Azemour les orangers is the best citrus out there.
>>17360513I think the edt is slightly better and being less dark works better for the scent, but the performance is apparently bad
>>17360513It's supposed to mean different oil concentration, but in reality you have to tweak the formulation as well, so the end result is more of an imagined or enhanced idea of what the different concentrations smell like.Typically an EDT is fresher and might project more. As you go up in concentration they tend to become less fresh. Instead denser with added heavier, darker or sweeter notes. So it's not a guarantee that they will last longer.
>>17360492>>17360500Ambre sultan is fucking based, i blind bought it and dont regret it at all but i would definitely sample it. its very strong and warm, spicy in the opening and not all that sweet but once it dries down its easily one of my favorites. i didnt try any of the ones on your list though
>>17360492Ambre Sultan or Fille en Aiguilles
>>17360577>>17360600Ambre sultan doesn’t strike as my kind of fragrance, I’m not looking for something out of moroccan spice market, does it smell like that anyways? What’s the dry down like?Fille en Aiguilles was my first choice but it’s sold out in the website
>>17360577I fucking hate ambre sultan. It has the super spice rack esque herbs of declaration
Les Absolus d'Orient Santal Royal by Guerlain:Got another batch of 1 ml decant tryouts including a few ouds. I go for spicy/oriental usually. So is oud code for feces or something? This shit smells like equal parts sour milk, rotting trash, nursing home, and poop. There is a little generic perfume mixed in also. Who likes this and gets all hot and bothered smelling it?
>>17360629Not him but Chergui would be my second pick after Fille en Aiguilles: a very warm and comfy fragrance for (Northern hemisphere) winters.
>>17360674I have chergui and like it. It's sort of a sweet warm cherry tobacco. I have not tried ambre sultan.Why buy off the Serge Lutens website? It seems like fragrancenet is still cheaper.
Any Black Friday sales bros? I saw Sauavage Elixir on eBay for $80 and I’m wondering if it’s legit
Snicebomb Extreme in 2022, yay or ney? What alternative should I consider?
>>17360228Minimum amount for something like Sauvage Elixir. Might go higher with less potent stuff.
>>17360319haha what the fuckwe wearing onedimensional drug store cheapies now boyseverything else is for women
>>17360716>Osswald NYC email about Black Friday sale>they have zero of the seven scents I want to tryAnother day, another nickel.
Dad always says "I like that, it's got a cigar smell" regardless if I'm wearing Sauvage Elixir, Luna Rossa OG, Body Kouros or LaytonIs he just a pleb or is it the early signs he's had a stroke or something
>>17360856I wish my dad talked to me
>>17360856He's just reminiscing the good old days when all he did was cocaine, your mom and chewed some tobacco
Which of the Dior Sauvages do you guys like best? Currently leaning towards the EDP.
the mum got me this when she was on a cruiseis it /fa/ approved? it doesn't last that long, but unfortunately not really a scent that i'd wear on an office day
>>17360375Pretty much he’s saying to buy classics like guerlain vetiver and eau sauvage. New stuff is gay
>>17360937a bit boring but good quality and classy, like most modern chanel scents
>>17360666Smelled like old lady shit to me
has anyone tried both lapidus oud noir and black soul imperial? want to blind buy one of them but can't decide which, both sound pretty good, oud noir seems to be less gourmand than black soul imperial and is generally less reviewed so i'll probably go for that
>>17361125interesting and good performance but there's something harsh about it that I don't like, idk what it is
>>17361125too many different things going on at the same time. liked it at first but now i find it too busy. shouldn't have put in the frankincense
>>17357090Help me find the perfect sigma male scent.Some examples:>Bois Imperial>Encre Noire>M7
>>17361146you already posted it
>>17361146club design/scent tattooantaeusanything by ensar oudkouros
>>17361024brother please stop blind buying synthetic smelling cheapies
>>17361208have you ever sniffed any of them? or from lapidus in general?
Something good with bergamot and tobacco notes?
>>17360490thank you, I got the exact same idea. the evolution of the notes it's like going from being a cyborg back to a primitive deep water fish.>>17360451>Doesn't project a ton, but I don't really like stuff that projects a mile away anywaysI get 5 sprays in and it both lasts me more than 24h and projects like crazy. are you sure you're not going nose blind to it?
give me some ideas for a few lil samples, it's black friday sale time. can be as esoteric as you want
>>17361391I'm always happy to shill MDCI. I really liked chypre palatin and invasion barbare. Ambre topkapi was pretty nice, too, as was peche cardinal.
>>17357784I fucking love gay dragon basenotes man, what a character. He's got like 1000 reviews on there.
>>17361508how's bleu satin
>>17357090What's a good "dark" floral fragrance for the night. I'm fine with a technically female frag, as long as it has a complex and mysterious nature.
>>17361560Gay dragon isbtruly the best...have you noticed that his dragon avatar wears glasse? Always cracks me up lmao
>>17361712Toy Boy. Dark rose, a bit woody musky base. Blind bought a small bottle because of reviews and curiosity. Actually pretty good and wearable if you're comfortable with rose.
>>17361212yes i have smelled lapidus stuff and that was not what someone should be wearing. i gave up after two. only bogart has been worse so far.
What am I in for, lads?
>>17361828a divisive fragrance and two synthetic sweet fragrances. but at least one of them is for cute girls so it doesn't matter.
>>17361712dior homme parfum, black orchid, maybe shalimar

Best organic fragrance for men or unisex.
>>17361882almost all fragrances are organic, there's no inorganic chemistry involved.
>>17361882uhh.... deer musk attars from Etsy?
>>17361886That isn’t accurate though, there are synthetic ingredients in fragrances which is why I’ve had a really hard time finding ones that have none.
>>17361892and yet they are carbon based and therefore entirely organic
>>17361906I think you’ve been eating too many micro plastics.
>>17361828really good, much higher quality than the price would suggest, bitter vetiver with a forest-like drydown.headache and vomit inducing artificial tobacco that is sweeter than american piss, stays on your skin for 2 days and fills out any room you enter.b540 without the iodine and moss that swapped out the cotton candy sweetness for artificial citrusy-sweet note, it's also toilet cleaner tier for the first 30 minutes.>>17360518yes layering with iso-e super should increase the longevity and make your frag project a bit more. >>17360421patrician tastes anon.
>>17360828tell me your top 5
Why I like this piece of shit so much? Everytime I smell a girl wearing Euphoria, I'd greet her.Is there anything similar for man?
>>17361912i'll tell you once i sampled or smelled every fragrance there is
>>17360577very spicy in the opening, the drydown is very warm and more ambery than anything else. i would just sample it honestly, me personally i hate the idea of smelling like an arab but the drydown is 100% worth it to me
>>17361663Haven't gotten to try that one yet. I can't remember why, maybe it had notes I wasn't fond of?
Tried Dior Homme Intense and smells like a grandmaSauvage elixir on the other hand smells manly and clean. Very intense and long lasting, though I like the DNA so might cop the EDP Dior Homme Sport is quite nice, a good everyday wear for Fall/Winter, while Dior Cologne is great for Spring/SummerAll in all Dior is good on the average, one of the most consistent fragrance brands when it comes to quality and appeal
>>17361933I like the bottle
>>17357090Anyone have any recs for someone with really sensitive skin? I get rashes easily.I want the scent to indicate I am not from a city originally.
I love the smell but the performance is so shit holy fuck
>>17357090Anyone knows a good mature and mass pleasing scent that works well all seasons?I am looking for something classy and not overhyped. Obvious candidate could be picrel but ThH is just not for me.
>>17362096Interesting choice, thanks. Just hope I can find it at stores.
>>17362183maybe Jaipur Homme in the EDT? or Grey Vetiver?but desu most typical young fragbros see "mature" as the opposite of mass pleasing, so it's almost like you're asking for a contradiction. both are mind of meaningless meme categories. but for an older man, maybe something like Eau Sauvage is more mass pleasing than Eros. idk
>>17362183you could try Voyage d'Hermes EDP
>>17361933I would love to sit on this bottle.
>>17362217>"mature" as the opposite of mass pleasingI see the contradiction and I know it's a difficult question, but as said, there is the case with TdH edt: not exactly mass pleasing but most people will agree that the thing smell good and classy.Other candidate could be picrel. Lovely fragrance, but it's too much when hot weather (I live in Lazio).
>>17362192>ombre leatherIs this wearable at 95°F? Don't think so.
>>17362235>TdH edt: not exactly mass pleasingIt was if you were in menswear.Now it smells dated.TDH Parfum is a superb modern flanker for today.
>Wear Encre Noire with a chunky turtleneck Jan-ish last year, light undershirt separated it from it>Put back in chest I store my sweaters>Pull it out to try it on with a new Barbour jacket to see if it goes with it>Still smell hints of Encre Noire
>>17362206I hope you are not trolling... Just ordered a 50ml bottle for 16€ since I like crazy fragrance woth tons of notes from late 80s/early 90s.Anyway, I am looking for a classy signature, I don't think that exist at this price range.
>>17362249>TdH edt dated>TdH Parfum modernCome on. 90% of the people won't detect a difference.
>>17362253It's awesome, right? I sparyed it in my notebook planner at the beginning of the year, just to smell it on paper, and the scent still there.
>>17362254different anon here, I do think 1881 is a good frag, but I wouldn't call it mass pleasing. it's like a more green eau sauvage with added roseyou could try Platinum Egoiste or anh Chanel made since then really. they're all safe and mass pleasing yet classy

>>17362279>gentle fluidity silverOp here. Bois imperial and ganymede are not mass pleasing, but I totally forgot about this MFK masterpiece. Best answer so far, thanks.
>>17362183Maybe Dunhill Icon or CAHSEE? Could also try Le Beau and it's Parfum version, maybe even Le Male. Other than that, Prada stuff, like Luna Rossa Sport or Amber pour Homme, but I'm not sure how the current batches are on that.>>17362254Cerruti 1881 is a bit old-fashioned, but well blended. I don't mind the first bit, but the longevity could be better. Good fragrance, though.>>17362242Whether or not something is wearable during different seasons is - in reality- entirely based on mindset. People do not really care. Fragheads overthink seasonality of fragrances, most people only own 1-2 bottles and use them however.
>>17362300>mostly vetiver and oudEasily wearable all year round. If you got balls.
Just tested the new Code Parfum. What a fucking disappointment - might as well be called "We want the sauvage audience".Also tried the Novellista Violate Charade - I don't have any thoughts on it cause you can barely smell it.
>>17362254It might not be exactly what you're looking for, but for the price it's worth adding to a mature mans collection regardless. A rougher Eau Sauvage with better longevity.
>>17362263>>17362253can get a 100ml bottle for $20 right now, do i just blind buy?

First impression.It starts of with Antonio Gardoni slapping you in the face with a bouquet of flowers while a civet is pissing on you. As it settles down after 10-15min the sweet warmth of the benzoin starts to come forth.
>>17362313>BI>not mass pleasingI do not share this experience. People fucking love BI in real life, it’s almost a bit ridiculous. Literally vintage Fierce tier juice. L’HOMME INFINIMENT
>>17362526In real life, people fucking love the most popular fragsFrags I get complimented on are stuff like bdc, adg and spicebomb. I own a BI bottle and nobody cares.Fierce is great though, too bad the longevity is shit
>>17359955unironically Fahrenheit EDP or EDT
>>17362531BI and ganymede are the only fragrances I've gotten real complments on.
>>17362435why do people still care about Armani? they made one good fragrance and haven't done anything of note since the 90s, just endless flankers that get reformulated into weak shjt after a year or two
