>>17531921Swiss Arabian - Oud Al Ghutra
What are your spring/summer picks?
>>17531931Winter frags all year. It only works better in summer, so use less sprays.Besides I'm in air conditioning most of the time and I won't be offended by something "too cloying" while I'm mowing my lawn.
>>17531931the ones I have are:>Terre d'Hermes EDT (I prefer it for spring)>JeP Neroli Intense (good blind buy if you like Neroli Portofino)>Cerruti 1881 (someone told me it smells very pleasant but like an unkle lmao. I think that's on point, a pleasant if dated fresh green + floral chypre)have considered buying:>Philosykos (smells great, but mediocre performance and a bit pricy)>Un Jardin Sur Le Nil (same as above)>Aqua Allegoria Pamplelune (same as above)>H24 Parfum (better than the EDT I think)>Encre Noire Sport (smells great, but abysmal performance)>Bleu de Chanel (unironically)>Platinum Egoiste>Vetiver Bourbon (someone shilled this here and it's cheap, might blind buy)honestly I tend to struggle with freshies a bit. most of them are boring and with bad performance and pretty much all the ones I mentioned are a "like, not a love" for me
Need to pick a couple new frags for spring, rebuilding collection.1: Green, grassy, floral but not rose2: Citrus and incense3: woody vanilla, but airy dry vanilla not thick and cloying.I'm open to designer or niche, like to keep it below $300 per bottle.
>>17531930ironically the attar i own is from swiss arabian>>17531931i'll probably repurchase issey. also al rehab sultan,lapidus ph sport and last but not least cool water
>>17531931I only have Encre Noire Sport for summer.
>>17531931Probably Carven L'Eau Intense for the hottest days. Platinum Egoiste or Montblanc Legend EdP on all other days.
>>17531942>1: Green, grassy, floral but not roseCerruti 1881. does have rose listed, but it's mixed with other flowers and not super rosy>2. Citrus and incensedoes anyone do this aside from stuff like BdC?>3: woody vanilla, but airy dry vanilla not thick and cloyingmaybe Moustache EDP. that one has always seemed lighter and woodier than most vanillas to me. cheap too
>>175319421. CK Eternity for Men EdP.2. L'Eau d'Issey PH Intense.3. Memoirs of a Trespasser because I don't know what airy dry vanilla is. Maybe Z&V This Is Him.

>>17532000no. kouros is king
>>17532000>>17532003Why are you evaluating sex appeal on the opinion of other men?Oh. Right.Kouros belongs on /lgbt/
>>17531981Can vouch for Z&V This is him, it is a brilliant parfume. Could be longer lasting, but its reasonably priced so no worries. I wear it the whole year around
>>17531931ELDO ghost in the shell
>>17531891I put my sauvage in my sock draw for a few days and I took it out and it smells totally different and a lot weakeram I just hallucinating?

>>17532036Not buying it and saving the money for an actual good fragrance like neroli Intense
>>17532036>Neroli Intense>Encre Noire / Sport / Extreme>Lalique Pour Homme>Boucheron Jaipurquite a few better deals than this overhyped generic citrus freshie desu. even Versace's own Blue Jeans is better IMO, and cheaper
Thoughts on histoires de parfums ?
Where does Byredo get off charging so much for their stuff lmao
Fun story time...Last Sunday i went to a few garage sales, in one of them i found a middle aged lady selling random stuff, there i saw pic related, got it for $5 k owingly its not genuine but i liked the scent.Wore this for the last 2 days and i actually like this scent, now, ive only smelled Sauvage on one of those Macys sample catalogues about 4 years ago so i dont remember how the origibal one smella like but i find it similar, now...does anyone know what juice is inside these knockoff frags? my guess is one of those Armaf clones like Ventana or Pride but i cant be sure since i dont own any of them, just want to know what the juice actually is so i can buy another one when this one gets dry.Scent is spicy, with a touch of blue,
>>17531973>>17531973I really wanted to like DHS for summer, but the citrus disappears immediately on my skin and the incense comes out roaring. Still a nice frag but not what I expected/hoped for.I like grapefruit so maybe light blue forever is in the cards for me
>>17531891extry extry! get em while you still can!
>>17531908Versace Dylan BlueCarolina Herrera Bad Boy CobaltVersace Eros Flame
>>17532182holy shit lmao
>>17532181pleb, you don't even know what the real sauvage smells like, how the hell could we ever guess what's in a chinese knock off?
>>17532182ew what the fuck does it look like that for
>>17532182That bottle is looking rough. If you're just looking for some Sauvage-like juice with good performance, check Ajmal Kuro. It might even be in there. It doesn't have the opening but it goes straight to the drydown and performance is just like with Sauvage itself.>>17532190Anon, you bought a designer at niche price hoping to make a quick buck. The market will be saturated for a couple of years before that becomes worth it. Not to mention that it is easily available everywhere in most of Europe.
I'm on the fence. Women seem to love Bois Imperial on me but I find it smell like pickles. What to do? I've never got any so many compliments on my scent since starting with this hobby..
How do you apply samples that come in this sort of bottle? Do you put a bit in your hand and then pat your skin?
What frag goes with this fit?Don't say dried cum from my daddy.
>I am made of blue sky and golden light.>And I will feel this way forever.
>>17532214according to research posted in the previous thread, your fragrance preference might be related to your serotype in order to create immunologically stronger offspring with someone smelling like they could have a different serotype. since you don't like it but the women you've met like it, it is likely that they are drawn to the scent and not to your scent, therefore there's a high possibility for weakened offspring. so i guess wrap it then tap it, but if you want to procreate put on the juice you like.
>>17532221pour them into your mouth and then lick your arm.>>17532223that's a prime sauvage outfit
>>17532221turn upside down while touching your wrist and rub it around. you have to tilt it sometimes to let in some air.
>>17532233I was starting to get bored of Sauvage, anything else?
>>17532235tried the elixir yet? different enough from the other sauvages as to relieve one's boredom without completely doing a 180
>>17532241I tried it at a store once, guess I'll have to try it again and decide.Probably have 1 more month left before I start going full linen anyway.
>>17531942Get In Jardain sur le Toit by Hermes. Very floral and grassy with a lovely apple note. Though I will warn you it is rather feminine leaning.

Tom Ford launched Grey Vetiver in 2009 as a woody-spicy scent in Eau de Perfume concentration. In 2014, the house introduced its fresher, more luminous and lighter version—Grey Vetiver Eau de Toilette. In 2023, the collection ins expanded by the new edition - Grey Vetiver Parfum. Described as a bolder iteration of the original, Grey Vetiver Parfum is inspired by Tom Ford's impeccable tailoring and styling. A trio of sustainably sourced vetivers are used to exude intense radiance. The notes of fresh orange blossom give way to saffron, as the world's most expensive spice. The fragrance elicits the essence of debonair masculinity, merging natural, sustainably sourced vetiver with warm orange flower and rich spices."If you go into our stores, grey is the color of the packaging, our carpets, and our walls; in a sense it's the Tom Ford color. The idea was to convey a cool, silvery, very refined vetiver." -TOM FORD.Available in bottles of 50 and 100 ml.

>>17532000Paco Rabanne Pour Homme
>>17531891Hey guys I just found fragrance channels and I put some money together and got this really nice smelling expensive stuff. I think i'm set for the spring and summer! If you don't know about it it's called Aventus by a smaller company called Creed. You pay good money, but you get good stuff.
>>17532701what fragrance to replicate that "shoe funk" scent? I think kielh's musk combined with some super stinky oud attar could work
>>17532187Light blue forever is a solid scent anon. The grapefruit doesn't last all day but you feel fresh as hell.
>>17532718ah, a true man of taste I see. if you like this, try some other obscure ultraniche perfumes, like Baccarat Rouge 540 or Santal 33
>>17532718Good decision, friend. They are really special and their bottles are made from that precursor material to gorilla glass, meaning they are virtually impossible to break. I've dropped my bottle intentionally from 2 meters of height onto a tile floor and it just bounced around a little. You should try it sometimes, it's amazing.
>>17532560>saffrondropped>>17532591smells like an antique chest
>>17532591Looks like a shampoo
>>17532718Might I recommend a beautifully masculine scent named Kouros by a little mom & pop shop named Yves Saint Laurent?
>>17532735>>17532805Thank you for the recommendations! I just started my journey into the wide world of smelling papers at the mall and I just wanted to get some things that would make me stand out, so I got Aventus and I also found this one here called Bleu but it turns out its just pronounced Blue. On the bottom it says lady perfume but I smelled it and I think as a guy I can totally wear it. I like it a lot - it smells very different
>>17532778>smells like an antique chestis that a bad thing?
Do you use any essential oil in your house/room to keep a good smell at all times? I recently got this spicy cypress and it´s pretty nice. I feel like trying a few more because it has some kind of floor cleaner vibe.
>>17531931Prada Luna Rossa SportADP Fico di AmalfiAzzarro ChromeMB Individuel
>>17532819No, you're thinking of Chanel No 5. Ladies of the night wear that one.
>>17532821I dont personally like it. I dont really know what I'm expecting from incense, but I haven't really liked any of them that I've tried other than CDG 2 man
>>17532300>Noooooo aaaaahhhhhh anon asked a question on another forum on a web site completely devoted to answering that exact question! Aaaaaahhhhhh noooooooo uuuuuughhhhh how dare anyone seek information anywhere except on a Lithuanian rug weaving forum aaaaahhhhhh save me Niggerman aaaaaahhhhhh
>>17532299Checked, also great call. I had it years ago and it didn't read feminine to me, it was so bright and tart it was simply photorealistic unisex. Pleasantly surprised too since I hate rose but was fine with the green/grassy/peppery rose they used.
>>17532547Can you tell me about Homme Intense and Super Majeure?I've heard Super majeure is a smoky, woody aquatic and if so that's exactly what I want Also what are you thoughts on Villoresi Uomo? Is it a spicer, rougher Aqua Di Parma?
>>17532566Not him but H24 EDP is amazing, it's basically a more minimalist Penhaligons Sartorial with a massive green banana note that somehow works perfectly with the smell of a tailor shop.I love it and went out of my way to buy a bottle at full retail price just to encourage Hermes to take more chances and make ballsy shit like this. I know it's only one bottle but if you like something you have to vote with your wallet
>>17532945I mean I don't personally find it too feminine, other than the floral notes. But it seems that about half the places that sell it have it listed solely as a women's frag rather than unisex. But yeah, definitely one of my favorites. I'd love to try out the rest of the Jardain line someday.
>>17531891morillas is a genius
>>17532319why the fuck would you buy a cheap clone of a $100 fragrance he's getting bored of? you clone plebs are retarded
thoughts on this? Is it worth the money?
>>17532730Got a bunch of samples to try off eBay and made sure that was one of them, thanks brother
>>17532964He's one of the greatsBut Bourdon is the modern master, a tragedy on masculinity that most of his male frags are discontinued or reformulated
I really wanted to like this since the opening is actually nice, but then the dry down smells like curry.
>>17533089The problem with Morillas is that for every masterpiece he has made there's 3 or 4 totally forgettable mediocre frags that he's made as well. But I guess that's how production in the modern fragrance world works.
>>175331293 or 4? More like 20
>>17533164I was trying to be nice, but I can't argue with that.
Looking for something as close as possible to Philsykos EdP by Diptyque, except with better performance, specifically longevity, but also sillage. Would prefer equal to or less than philosykos price. Would really appreciate recsMale, 24
>>17532000This was the first fragrance I had to violently scratch and scrub off of my arm, disgusting. still wasn't completely gone
>>17532232Can you link to reaearch? Sounds fascinating
>>17532966>cloneNone of them clones sauvage you retard
Please describe the difference between encre noir and encre noir a l'extreme
>>17533246We are not ChatGPT
>>17532951thanks. how do you thin it compares to the EDT?
>>17532974it's pretty good. the whole series is solid if you're looking for a good modern accessible, sweet scent for colder weatherthis one reminded me a bit of Burberry London, which could be a cheaper alternative if you're price-conscious
>>17533246they're pretty similar. the main difference is that the Extreme has some incensy resins added. it's also a bit more smokier and has a bit of amberthe original is a bit lighter and greener smelling. I prefer the Extreme
>>17533172I get he has to make money, but I just can't respect him. How do other perfumers make money, because I swear no one pumps out shit more than Morillas.
>>17533129>for every masterpiece he has made there's 3 or 4 totally forgettable mediocre fragsYeah maybe 5 or 7 mediocre ones but with Morillas you can still find several of his frags in decent form, with Bourdon who made a bunch of cult classics you would be hard pressed to find 2 or 3 that weren't raped with reformulations or discontinuations, including his Creed ones.His work is hard to find aside from vintage bottles when back in the early to mid 00's he had dozens of stuff on the market, mostly untouched.>>17533220Not him but i think it's this one:https://academic.oup.com/beheco/article/12/2/140/239863?login=false
>>17533278>How do other perfumers make moneySome don't or have to fund their own shit like Kurkdjian, or go into the administrative roles.Always find odd how medium to bad the perfumers do when they go indie, The Kurk being an exception for some reason although half his bottles are supposedly not that good compared to his big hits.
>>17533285I think most people just don't care about nor know about perfumers
>>17533285>Always find odd how medium to bad the perfumers do when they go indieIt makes sense. You think most normies even know about perfumers or think about it? They see Chanel no 5 and just think it was created by Coco or something. They probably think that designers are more of a status symbol than niche too. If you weren't into frags and see BdC and a frag from Perfume d'Empire, which one are you going to think is something that someone of status would wear. I dont even like Kurkdijan that much. His house was built on Baccarat Rouge, which I guess just got big on social media for some reason. Luck I guess. I hate that women love obscenely sweet shit.
>>17532753Go fuck yourself
>>17533264>H24 EDT vs EDPSimilar enough to be redundant, I find the EDP to differ mainly in concentration and performance rather than smell. To be honest I the EDP *is* the EDT with the rough edges smoothed out. It's softer, fuller, lasts longer, wears closer to the skin and the big difference is the unripe banana note which lasts somehow through the life of the EDP. I much prefer the EDP performance wise, I like frags that last and don't shout. If you don't own either, get the EDP.If you own the EdT, finish the bottle then get the EDP.>>17533246Encre Noire vs Extreme. Two excellent Lalique frags, made by a company that grasps what a flanker "should" be.Encre Noire is the color of ink, black or midnight blue. It's dense, opaque. A wall of heavy Vetiver with a literal sweet ink note on top (shout out to Silver Mountain Water), it doesn't change much, it doesn't evolve, it gives you a monolith of vetiver. It's so comically butch.Extreme isn't extreme at all, I think the name was a mistake BUT it's a good "flanker" in that it retains enough of the original to be recognizably related but goes on its own direction enough to warrant buying even if you have the original. Extreme isn't black, it's brown, a reddish brown at that with green on the side. It's 50% original Encre Noir, 25% dry woods (strong cypress) and 25% incense.To me it's far and away superior to the original in terms of smell, originality, versatility, class, value, etc but the original beats the shit out of it performance wise. I get a legit 24 hours out of the original, it lasts till I shower. I am blessed if I hit 8hrs with Extreme, 6hrs is the norm. I would still take Extreme over the original any day.Encre Noir 7/10EN Extreme 9/10
>>17533291>>17533292You are both right due to the normalfag not knowing nor caring but it does show the niche hobbyist also doesn't care or doesn't have the money.When saying perfumery is an art some fags, shills and reviewers forget it implies an artist and that he might have a consistent style, in my case with Bourdon i found i liked many of his frags although maybe because they were famous in the mainstream, yet i may explain it as a consistent style: No sweet shit aside from Individuel, both great apertures and drydowns, not powdery and often ozonic/fresh.Now that i think of it Almairac also did OK in his indie venture, he also has a couple of cult classics which put him in the same level as Bourdon in the 80's: Fahrenheit, Minotaur, Zino, Joop.>I dont even like Kurkdijan that much.Me neither overall but i do appreciate Narciso Rodriguez EDT and Carven Homme enough to consider him on the map, some anons say his other Maison shit is pretty good, Grand Soir i think was one.> I guess just got big on social media>LuckAlso a factor, he may know how to use that compared to the 70yo oldfags who open their small store and wait for the connoisseurs to come in, Almairac being on the map because i think his son is the one doing the busy paperwork while he just mixes the oils.>>17533311Don't worry the scent will go away in 2 hours, nuAventus is not that long lasting

>>17533345"I do not perform the sexual acts mentioned (in the image below) but if you do not own this (bottle of Sauvage) you should acquire it immediately."
>>17533217filtered>>17533285mfk (brand) is kinda overrated. and by kinda i mean a lot
>>17533285The MFK stuff is intentionally made to be mass-pleasing, so that somewhat helped with getting them popular. I sometimes feel like going indie is the way for perfumers to release creations they couldn't have released otherwise, which is not the case with MFK. Even then he immediately picked up on becoming the in-house perfumer of Dior. >>17533334Kurkdjian made Le Male, which is the stuff that even got me interested in fragrances. He started his career with a banger. When it comes to MFK stuff, I have Gentle Fluidity Silver and Masculin Pluriel, although the second was bought discounted as part of a swap, since it's not worth full price imho. Grand Soir is great but I haven't been able to pick it up for a good price yet. A lot of the other stuff is good, but absolutely not worth the price. It's the main problem of his house. When it comes to the BR540 discussion, he just did something nobody had done before and it wasn't even that hard, so now there are one million clones with the same dna.>>17533344Technically probably true, but it is never just the fragrance. Lots of women sniff that stuff and like it, but other stuff as well. However, I think that a major factor is still being perceived - people can only judge your fragrance if they are able to smell it, and stuff like Sauvage allows them to do that within putting their nose directly on your skin. It's "don't smell bad" thing, simple as.
>>17533368Imagine the first fragrance you make commercially being Le Male. Imagine making a fragrance as inexplicably popular as BR540.Is Kurkdijan the luckiest perfumer in the world, or is he just a genius at predicting market trends?
anyone know a cheap alt for Floris London's Mulberry and fig?Also i'm looking for cheaper alternative for Jo Malone's wood sage and sea salt, Malone overcharges the shit out of their waters. Most European sites only have deals and discounts for the most mainstream shithow is the Jo Malone store here in Berlin? If i go there will I be able to get free samples or are there discounts ever?
>>17533368>Even then he immediately picked up on becoming the in-house perfumer of DiorYeah although it did take him 5-7 years, i just hope he picks the Fahrenheit line because his violet leaf technique is pretty good and Le Parfum is boozy homo shit, then again he is also a specialist is queer scents.>Kurkdjian made Le ShemaleIt may have been a bomb in the 90's but i can't smell it well nowadays, must've been destroyed with reformulations but he keeps making those faggot flankers. Subjective tastes i guess.>absolutely not worth the priceIt all boils down to that i suppose, 200+ dollar bottles without counting shipping is pretty rough for normal scent profiles despite being done by the original creators.>Gentle Fluidity SilverGender Fluidity they call it, poor Kurk must be tired of being known for sodomite frags
>>17531891I'm a complete begginer to fragrances, never bought one, watched some jeremy but seems like he only recommends for experienced people.I'd like to have something that's either sweet and citrusy, but still masculine, or something that smells like freshly processed leather. Preferably under 100$. Any recommendations.
>>17533410>Dior homme Sport>Malin+Goetz leather perfume oilif you're intimidated by perfume oil and just want a simple spray, i suggest you order the sample set of Malin+Goetz. a varied set of different samples that are modern and clean
>>17533413What is perfume oil? Is it different than just normal perfume? From the name I'm assuming it works like oil sunscreen??
>>17533410>sweet and citrusy, but still masculineFirst fragrance that comes to mind is Terre d'Hermes, as it's literally a classic old school masculine modernized with a sweeter orange and some modern molecules. But also try something like Bleu de Chanel or the Dior anon mentionedFor straightforward leather focused fragrances that are accessible your best bet would probably be something like Ombre Leather or La Yuqawam
>>17533408Le Male is dead compared to the original formula. I only know the smell of the ~2006 formulation and the 2020 formulation and it's fucking over for that stuff. It isn't "bad" now, it's just not what it used to be. From what I've read, restrictions on coumarin are to blame (around 2014). Coumarin hasn't even been confirmed to be an allergen, yet they restricted the use and had it show up on labels/ingredient lists. It's just sad and I hope they drop the restrictions one day. I'm not going to get another bottle until then and will fondly remember the original formulation. I'm not too big on the Le Male flankers, but at least Le Male Le Parfum brings something of the original back, which is the only flanker I care about in any way.
>>17533402Dude made 200+ juices, one would think some of those would hit the jackpotLe Male is the only one interesting enough historically at least, it really was a lucky strike unless you consider that Almairac's Minotaur being its prototype. Baccarat Rouge 540 was a highly budgeted commission for an expensive anniversary so it makes sense he took all his powers and ingredients to pull something out of it.But because of Narciso Rodriguez EDT i cannot really shit on him, neither due to the original woman version which is very nice along with some of its flankers.
>>17533413>"still masculine">Dior Hommo Sport broPlease do not kill his dreams>>17533422>First fragrance that comes to mind is Terre d'Hermes>literally a classic old school masculine modernized with a sweeter orange and some modern moleculesIs it really, the oranges smell bitter rather than sweet and the classic old school masculine lacks everything from the classic frags like vetiver, patchouli or oakmoss, being instead replaced with the single molecule Iso E Super.I'll say give the little buddy some Bentley Azure: Citrus fruity opening with tonka and violet leaf with woods for manliness.>>17533410>freshly processed leatherWhat kind of leather? city slickers think the plastic seats in their cars is leather
>>17533429Restrictions on coumarin were also why bison grass vodka was banned in the US, it has a slight blood thinning effect or something. Of course you'd die of alcohol overdose long before feeling any effects from the coomarin. Delicious stuff btw, especially mixed with apple juice.
>>17533410invictus victory. sweet, citrusy opening, masculine.
>>17533443Leathery tannin processed leather. Is plastic seat small really what comes into peoples minds when they think leather? Damn.
>>17533443I get a lot of vetiver from TdH. Patchouli and oakmoss are also there, but in smaller amounts and blended down

>>17533278he has to do what he is commissioned to do., you can't just do whatever you want as a perfumer, you know
>>17533285if you think about it, each house is spoiled for choice and every perfumer is trying to make something the house will pick. so the house is going to try to pick the thing that will make them the most money, so the chaff is eliminated as long as the creative directors are competent. if one single perfumer goes out on their own to make their own line, they're only one person and subject to creative blocks or falling into a certain style and limited by their knowledge of chemistry and accords. its easy to see how a line created by a single perfumer will not perform quite the same as a house picking and choosing all the hits and skipping the B sides, at the expense of not actually owning their own formulas

>>17533549does chatgpt simply trawl the internet for it's answers or what?without humans creating perfumes and people talking and rating them, would chatgpt have nothing to say?
I had the discovery set of ELdO , and I tried fat electricianFor me is 95% the same as eau des bavx , anyone haves the same feel?
>>17533560Of course it does. It's just weighted collected google results, basically.See >>17533555 which simply recollects bing results.
>>17533560nah mate it creates answers out of thin air you dipshit

>>17533567>one of the most important mainstream conversations going on>I'll go to the fragrance general on 4chans fashion board to finally understand this subjectUnironically you are fucking retard of no consequence. I would guess at least 7 billion people on this planet are worth more than you
>>17533567because many muh hecking journos just copypaste shit with some refinement and change it up a little and that's what the ai can do. it can't do any engineering jobs. the best it can do is scurry the internet for code snippets if you ask it the right question to find a solution for your programming problem.
Just got halston z-14. The bottle is cute with it's "pinch" design idea.Pretty good, starts very heavy on the cinnamon and citrus, then the cedar starts poking through and the citrus becomes less prominent. As it dries down there's a sweaty animalic note. The cinnamon is noticeable throughout and gives it a real holiday vibe. Very reassuring fragrance, very masculine but would be hot on a woman. Interesting to see that one of the perfumers on this was Vincent Marcello who, of course, was the nose on Yatagan (something I'm sure we all have a much cherished bottle of). There is a similar kind of thing going on, but where this smells warm and reassuring, yatagan with its stonking castoreum and harsh pine note veers straight into disquieting. Overall: it's definitely not goyslop.
>>17533575better discussion than 99% of the cold takes here
>>17533585lol, lmao even>>17533567see answer from chatgpt:>why is everybody worried about ChatGPT taking their jobs?As an AI language model, I don't have the ability to take anyone's job. My purpose is to assist and enhance human communication and problem-solving, not to replace humans.However, there are concerns that advancements in AI and automation could lead to job displacement in certain industries. This has been a concern for decades, and it's not unique to ChatGPT or any specific AI technology. The fear is that as AI and automation become more advanced, they could take over certain jobs that are currently done by humans.It's important to remember that AI and automation can also create new job opportunities in areas such as software development, data analysis, and robotics. Additionally, AI can also help to improve efficiency and productivity in certain industries, which can lead to economic growth and job creation.Overall, while there are concerns about AI and automation affecting employment, it's important to approach these developments with a balanced perspective and consider both the potential benefits and challenges.
>>17533581>something I'm sure we all have a much cherished bottle offucking kike niggers not giving any discounts on it since november aaaaaaa
>>17533597Yeah the recent price increases have been concerning. Someone in a thread a few weeks back said it was because some Rothschild owned private equity firm owns caron now.Is there anything sacred they won't profane?
>>17533567>chatgpt is going to take everyones jobsBecause 80% of people are retarded, just like their jobs.
>>17533576if AI steals all these pseudojournalists jobs that will be a great thing
>>17533620well they will just get chatgpt to churn out the same propaganda and the journos will be free to do over activism like they would want to anyway
thoughts on Floris?

>>17533674Faux aspirational brand marketed to gullible Saudis, Chinese and Americans when they come to London. I don't remember any fragrance of theirs particularly standing out to me, no.89 is fine, but you'd think after 290 something years these guys would have a few more hits.

>>17533767yes, because it contained too much coumarin for US food safety standardsI think they eventually unbanned it, but for a while they had to sell some special US market version that was somehow flavored differently

>>17533773Jaipur Homme: soapy citrus barbershop opening, creamy vanilla oriental drydown. pretty expensive smelling for the priceCerruti 1881: green + floral chypre, a little similar to Eau Sauvage, but with less citrus, more florals and more intensely green

>>17533777>>17533785appreciate it frens :)
>>17533344I refuse to believe a nog bought the parfum instead of just buying the cheapest one
>>17533864Probably just grabbed it and ran
>>17533429Was IFRA actually useful back in the day? Like they used to have perfumes with anthrax in '73? Do the companies involved in it control too much of the industry from conglomerates that own brands to raw materials, that no one can get away from following their rules? Its crazy that there's even some new world order shit for fucking frags lol and their HQ is in Geneva.
>>17533911I've never understood why fragrances aren't sold unmolested with the potential allergens listed. You can still buy peanut butter even though it's allergic, and most of the potential carcinogen exposure is at homeopathic levels, every time you walk past a street with cars in it you probably do 1000 perfume bottles worth of damage to your lungs.It's just another aspect of the war on living extravagantly.
>>17533915Because they created regulatory authorities and they don't want to seem useless so they keep regulating stuff even if it doesn't make sense. Gotta keep using up that budget or it'll get cut. Research toxicity of ambroxan and ban that next when it kills 1/100 lab mice at astronomical doses.
>>17533911Depends. Testing got more rigorous over time, I'd assume. The first restrictions on coumarin were placed in 2008, but I haven't looked up what the values were and in what type of products. It's down to 1.5% in the finished fragrance now. You can stop following their rules as long as you don't violate any actual EU/FDA restrictions.
>>17533915Not everything is about allergies. Endocrine disruptors and mutagenic/carcinogenic substances took a bit longer to be discovered as we did a lot of cancerous shit back in the days which shortened lifespans in general.
>>17533917I'd imagine perfume houses are happier with ingredients being banned wholesale than having to explicitly list all their ingredients on the bottle
>>17533922>You can stop following their rules as long as you don't violate any actual EU/FDA restrictionsthis, IFRA has no actual legal effect, it just affects the distribution of your fragrancepeople think it's big bad EU regulation, but really it's just the fragrance industry's way of self-regulating to make European perfume safe from health concerns
>>17533926I'm curious to see what substances they've proscribed. We all know of oakmoss (hopefully coming back now thanks to fractionalisation) but what else did they ban.Were nitromusks a victim of ifra regs or was that before?
curious how there are much more single person artisan perfumers in the USA compared to europe aside from a few turks living i london selling oils on etsyi wonder why that is... hmm... could it be...? no no that's absurd
>>17533936You can look it up on their website.https://ifrafragrance.org/safe-use/library
>>17533937It simply didn't develop due to the market for raw materials not being big enough. You'd have to have a multi-language website and you'd have to ship hazardous goods across borders, both of which used to be a major pain in the ass in the past (the latter still is). With better commercial tools for selling those materials to a very heterogenous consumer base, it might just start to develop.
>>17533948just use english and keep within EU. they don't really check packages. fuck bongs i guessbut even then i've never heard of anyone getting fucked by shipping things that are not allowed. just dont declare it
>>17533941Interesting to see how much is proscribed due to"Insufficient data"
I bought my first EDP to wear at work, applied a single spray on chest area after shower, and I felt like it was strong as shit throughout the entire day, to the point of slight headache. Probably pissed off my colleagues too.Any ideas how to make it more subtle? Do I have to use the spray and walk into perfume cloud meme?
>>17534050you probably just smelled it too much because you applied it too close to your face. try the back of the neck next timevery few fragrances are so strong that one spray would be too much, it's almost unheard of. I'm sure you didn't offend anyonewhat fragrance was it?
>>17534050You have to stop being an insecure pussy with your fucking single spray. You better tell me what it was so i can apply 40 sprays and kill everyone.Also fragrances don't cause headaches, that's entirely based on autosuggestion - in this case, you stressing out over your fragrance caused the headache. It might be over for you now, though, because once you believe fragrances cause headaches (and not other factors falsely attributed to the fragrance), you can never get rid of that autosuggestion.
>>17534065Gucci JasmineYes I'm very gay>>17534070Fuck it then I guess I'll live through the pain because I like the smell
>>17534084>mid longevity and low sillageDon't worry, you're fine. Nobody smelled you and you're at least 15 sprays short of being perceived at all.
Another drop on the official Armani website:https://www.armanibeauty.de/dufte/herrenduft/acqua-di-gio/acqua-di-gio-profumo-eau-de-cologne/AP33109.htmlPlease be aware that "Eau de Cologne" is a fitting description of what is left of AdG Profumo by now and not a mistake on Armani's part. 72€ is as cheap as it gets at the moment.
Is bois imperial good or a meme?
>>17534110A friendly reminder:Ganymede is really good.Ganymede = Akigalawood + fruits.Kenzo Homme (Intense EDT and EDP 2022) are good.Kenzo Homme = Akigalawood + aquatics/blue.Bois Imperial is fucking garbage.Bois Imperial = Tom Ford Grey Vetiver + Akigalawood.
>>17534110It's for the sort of bumbaclot Babylon "fragrance community member" that refers to perfumes as "frags", wears perfume to the gym and who cares about getting "compliments" (99% of people know less than nothing about perfume so why should their opinions matter to you?)I and I have no need for it, completely not ital.

>>17534256I can't smell shit off of paper strips. Need to be on my skin to work.
>>17534266yea but this didn't occur to me before
>>17534219It's actual extrait, so 40 euros for 30 milliliters is quite cheap In any case I'm used to paying 3 euros per mililiter, so maybe I lost a bit of perspective
>>17534244I really like floral fragrances so that's why this surprised me a lot It also came with a sample of restless, quite interesting also, really beautiful anise
>>17534110it's pretty good, but it's not an "epic masspleasing pantydropper". it's actually pretty love or hate, for example one of my friends liked it enough to buy a bottle but my mom thought it smelled absolutely vile

Is plum japonais worth $44 for 10ml?I'm a 1-2 sprayerDon't wanna waste money on a small sample just to get a slightly bigger decant

My girlfriend is 26 and loves these.Can you guys suggest something similar for her birthday?

>>17534197>thisThey are fucking leftist vegan morons. Don't pay them.And these fuckers make dupes, at least they have 1mil clone.
>>17534757It's a new bottle. It definitely lacks a powdery oakmoss drydown, but the cinnamon isn't sweet. However it doesn't last very long. It's a sorry state of affairs that even in its current diminished state it's still better than 95% of the dreck currently marketed to men.
>>17534373no buy cdg floriental if you really want something like plum japonais
>>17534942>>17534986Shalimar isn't all that similar, but it is a great fragrance. 100 years on the market and still one of the best.

>>17535122I didn't like that one much but it's a good point, there's so much good to be had in cheap stuff, and older stuff. I prefer 90s-early 00s creations which I guess makes sense as that was my coming of age period.

CDG rouge is pretty cool. Its like a rose version of Avignon. kinda making me sick though lol
>>17534942Nothing can ever go wrong when blind-buying fragrances for somebody. I'd suggest Mon Guerlain. Good luck, anon.
L postbought a 5ml decant of this for $12 not knowing it was a super cheap and common fragrance. I never checked the price of the bottlesthe worst part is that it smells like an airport bathroom on both skin and paper. a bit of rotting yuzu if i try hard to smell that. maybe fragantica tards like the smell of flowery piss.
>>17535767There's a sweet rootiness to it too, which I guess is what they say is the beet. Really not sure how I feel about this one. I also have floriental to try
>>17535821I smell the beet now, but, for me, this is basically a high quality version of Hermann from ELDO and Declaration Soir, which I both think smell cheap and medicinal.
