The Fragrance Flowchart for Beginners
The Fragrance Groups 101 Chart
Anyone try any grooming company scents? I have Cremo Palo Santo and it's a pretty convincing Santal 33. I'd say 80%, which is quite good for $25. Do any other companies like Duke Cannon or Every Man Jack have good scents?
>>17536553They're okay, but both worse than Cremo.
What are the most “unwearable” niche frags?
>>17536580Zoologist T-Rex from what i have tested
>>17536580this was pretty weird
>I only wear Dior Sauvage EDT, Bleu De Chanel EDT and Allure Homme Sport EDT
>>17536580nekro dellamorte and to some extent secretions magnifiques. lots other prin's are tough too because they smell like an animal but i personally like that>>17536649it's not that bad, t-rex is the endgame of smoke frags desu. want to get a bottle but that price...
>>17536674a travel spray is 60 bucks and that will probably last you a lifetime, do it
>>17536668Gigachad would never say this.
PLEASE HELP I ALREADY TRIED CHAT GPTI NEED A FRAG THAT SMELLS LIKE PHILOSYKOS EDP. NOT NECESSARILY FIG, BUT SWEET AND FRUITY, LACTONIC, AND YET WOODY AND REFINED, UNISEX.JUST SOMETHING WITH BETTER PERFORMAAAAAAAAAANCE!also cheaper would be nicePLEEEAAASSE HELP!!!!!!!!
>>17536694you could try Un Jardin En Meditarranee. not sure about the performance, but it's a bit similar
>>17536694i hate that all diptyque fragrances are good but last half an hour
What do we think of this guys? Never tried any zoologist, i hate Tom Ford and MFK and im scared that this will disappoint me as much
>>17536694>I ALREADY TRIED CHAT GPTCould ask Jeremy instead, the answer would be just as helpful. Anyway, it's just possible that the chemicals creating the fig scent are simply too volatile to make for a long-lasting fragrance. You're out of luck, then. It's like D&G The One - if it was possible to make it in long-lasting, some fauxniche house surely would have done so already.
oy vey the ai summaries have become sentient and suddenly speak the truth. shut them DOWN before fragrance sales drop.
>>17536668I look like this and say this but it's ironic
do i crave and get yatagan for 50€? cheapest price was almost 1 year ago for 40€
>>17536679i dont think they sell them here. but tempted to get a 4.5ml decant for 17€ including shipping
>>17536749alternatively i could buy 120ml grey flannelhmm...
Got it despite no reviews and no notes listedit's alright, for an amber it has a lot of spice, it is better than I expected actually. I thought it would be a subtle polo red/xeryus rouge type but it projects fairly well and has a good sprayer with a large mist.And the pinecone bottle is easy to hold :)
Anything like this but with significantly toned down basil and citrus?
>>17536783could try Cerruti 1881, though that has more florals
>>17536801thanks, at this price might as well blind buy.
>>17536553duke cannon is fucking everywhere right now, wonder what kind of (((venture capitalist ))) has injected money into this shit, i see it at target boscovs pennys everywherethe cremo i hear are good scents but just don't last, but never tried them myself
>>17536727jeremy also loves d&g the one, so maybe you're onto something
so i was in boscovs the other day (they have more frags than fucking macy's and the saleswomen are nicer) so i decided to try smelling chanel No. 5 for the first time .Wow is it weird. was this typical style at the time? odd to me that something so strange smelling ended up being the be-all-end-all iconic fragrance. what is in there?
>>17536824it's a little more like the original Eau Sauvage than the Eau Extreme. less citrus than both though and more floral than both
>>17536231I want to smell like this picture this summer, what do? Looking for something invigorating and fresh
How do you guys store your frags? In the sock drawer or just on top of your dresser?Am I autistic if I am worried about light degrading my frags?I have a bottle of sauvage and to my nose its starting to smell different after a month sitting by my window under a strong light but I think most likely just olfactory fatigue desu.
>>17536939Nautica Voyage unironically
>>17536946>How do you guys store your frags? In the sock drawer or just on top of your dresser?actually yes, sock drawer>Am I autistic if I am worried about light degrading my frags?no, this is exactly what is happening to your sauvage
It’s my birthday and I’m going to dinner, should I weara) Bleu De Chanel Parfumb) Gucci Guilty EDP (the rose one)c) nothing, and go early to ZGO Perfumes and try out a bunch of niche stuff
Your Top 3 compliment getter
>>17536998I don't get compliments.
>>17536998Club de nuit intense gets me so many compliments its actually frustratingI do not like the scent nearly as much as the expensive shit I own but literally anyone I talk to while wearing it compliments me
>>17537011you make me want to buy a bottle, is it still cheap
>>17537032In Australia it's the same price as drakkar noir, I would assume that's the same wherever you are
>>17536946put them in a red wine fridge
>>17537004Same, except from my family now and then. Only real compliment I ever got was from the secretary at work while I was wearing Y edp.
just got this, what do I think of it?
>>17537090i don't know, anon, tell us
>>17537090i want to try that chopard malaki line
>>17537090you thought>wow! opening notes are very woody>I wouldn't mind a bit of wood in my opening
What are the most similar ones to this? Don't like the ozonic quality smells very weird but everything else I really love
i Just got the eldo discovery set, what should i try.Ghost in the shell smells like plastic and milk, disgusting.
>>17537099I really like it, been looking for a woody frag for a while nowalso what >>17537123 said
how many bottles did you add this month
>>17537232I bought oneI don't use whatever website that is
>>17537173send ghost in the shell to me i want to try it
>>17537232does this guy work in the industry or something
>>17537269I was about to argue he might of just started the account but no. He's been ere for years
>>17537269some retired finance boomer houses all his frags in a temperature controlled roomhe literally posts in every single thread and has like over 5000 bottles
>>17536580amber kiso. too woodsy and dry. >>17536694fico de amalfi
>>17536998Xerjoff Naxos Abercrombie & Fitch Fierce (bought it as a meme)Prada Luna Rossa Carbonthose 3 got me numerous unsolicited compliments and i don't really care for them.
i really like this. it's like a versace eros that doesn't suck.can i get a recommendation for a fruity scent for my girl?
>>17536747I bought it for 70 euros and it's still a good value. It's an amazing perfume. True artistry.
>>17537046Anyone try CDG Floriental and Prada Black. The dry down smells almost exactly the same
>>17537046True goyslop.>>17536998Getting compliments is for low IQ Morons. People accept my perfume because they need me around.
>>17537423Your "girl" (don't you mean woman?) should be wearing mitsuoko or knowing or youth dew.Seriously grow the fuck up you miserable faggot.
>>17537423tom ford lost cherry
>>17537423Hermes Un Jardin Sur Le Toit
How does it manage to mog literally everything in it's path?
>>17537586i bought it a month ago, and literally no one likes the smell. Thank god it was on discount.
>>17537592Well do YOU like it?
>>17537592imaging going through life like this
>>17537586>>17537592I always thought it smelled like a room spray. maybe I've smelled some room spray that cloned this scent and it's ruined it for me, idkfunnily enough my friend says the same thing about Drakkar Noir
fucking hell i was about to buy a frag from ebay but someone bought it while i was checking outaaaaa
Which one do you consider the most pleasant fragance from the last 10 years?
>>17537608What does drakkar noir smell like? Which frag is close to it
>>17537613my favorite from the last decade is Dior Homme Parfum
>>17537622it's that classic "shaving foam / soap" green, herbal, lavender fragrance. old school stuffit's similar to other fougeres. a modern example would be "at the barber's" by Margiela, or maybe Beau de Jour and Platinum Egoiste, though those are a pretty different take on the genre
>>17537613probably sauvage elixir first and nishane hacivat second.
>>17536649Yeah, that cold metallic note in T Rex combined with smoke really reminded me of smoked meat. I like disgusting, heavy, daring frags, but T rex killed me. Smelling like a walking smoked ham is even too much for me.>>17536580Most def Sécrétions Magnifiques. Imagine a hooker clearing up her cum filled pussy with floral scented water wipes directly after her last client is leaving.I even could pull off banyard oud, but Sécrétions Magnifiques is too much.
>>17536580There's quite a few that attempt to be quite putrid or at the very least polarising so I don't think its hard to list the common examples. For me however I think curry tinged herbaceous niche frags like fougere bengale, maruyama and mal-aimé are not only unpleasant but definitively unwearable.
>>17537630meant to reply this to >>17537615
>>17537630Oh I see ok thanks
Best White Musk?
>>17536939You want to smell sad?
>>17536946I have a small wood cabinet I keep them in.It keeps the temperature constant and prevents light from damaging them. But any bedroom drawer will work well as long as it's cool, dry and dark.
>>17536233Y'all should make a list that isn't all esoteric bullshit
>>17537613Not even close
>>17536723If you want a frag that smells like honey, bee won’t disappoint you.
Should I blind buy like 5-6 cheap but well regarded frags or one bottle of Platinum Egoiste?
i bought a thing of acqua di gio absolu the other day. i think its nice.
>>17537898PE >>>>> whatever they sell at Ross or TJ MaxxAs long as you have tried it and liked it of course
>>17536231I bought the Adam Driver meme Cologne and I actually love it. I have received a few compliments on it already
>>17537956it is nice, super underrated. >>17537978wholesome designer purchaser
>>17537731Narciso Rodriguez Musc for Him
>>17537898Depends on the 5-6 bottles, PE is a great fragranceWith 5 good bottles you can stroll around for a couple of years on any season
isn't natural body odor the pinnacle of all fragrance
Blind bought Platinum Egoiste finally.Soapy fresh very similar to Azzaro Chrome but not overwhelmingly soapy like Azzaro.Metallic notes in opening, and a hint of spiciness.The only complaint is in the drydown it becomes very archaically manly in a non sweet musky way in the dry down.
>>17538066thisthere’s this stinky guy at work and all the fags cram their pants because he’s hot his body hair holds onto his BOit’s unfair
>>17538067>Metallic notes in opening, and a hint of spiciness.For me it was a fresh-cut grass bomb with tiny bit of spices, never saw the similarity to Chrome but neither the said soapiness>The only complaint is in the drydown it becomes very manlyDior Homme user?
Most fucked up animalistic musc you know? I want to smell like rape but seductive.
>>17538114>Dior Homme user?Nah, I think thats a frag people who deliberately misquote people use
>>17538154That's oddly specific, sir
>>17537502You sound like the miserable one lmao
>>17538151kiehls original musk blend. modern muscs aint shit
>>17538234Well you certainly delivered. Got one that doesn't get described as feces?
>>17538239Not him but i think you have that famous one, Kublai Khan
>>17537898My rule is don't blind buy stuff over $50 with some exceptions for rare vintage frags where it's not really feasible to sample. Get a sample or decant first, or even a well regarded clone.
SOTD. Actually put it on last night but it's still going strong. I thought I'd hate it at first but it's really growing on me. Very grassy and earthy, notes are "Patchouli, Lavender, Oakmoss, Lichen, Frankincense, and Vetiver".Strong projection and longevity.It's very reminiscent of a freshly potted plant where you can really smell the soil. They use real oakmoss in this.I think it's something I have to be in the right mood to wear but worthy of a full bottle for the price. Not a compliment-getter but something to wear for yourself, and you will smell it on yourself.
Has anyone in here smelled Dolce Gabbana Pour homme made in france version? I tried it and the opening was a bit too sweet but i liked the drydown. Idk if this was the made in france version so does it smell like citrus candy in the opening?
>>17536694Studio by Kismet Olfactive. Hopefully you see this
>>17538338i have it an the opening just smells like high quality soap. reminds me of staying in a high end hotel, dont get candy vibes it is not sugary enough for that
Anybody tried the new formulations of Antaeus?I just bought some antaeus direct from chanel and getting second thoughts, I might end up just returning it. On fragrantica half the people say its weak watered down with no projection but some people say 2022 batches are beast mode again. I also have a bottle of Fahrenheit in the mail, but I think ill keep it because I tried it at sephora and it lasts a while.
>>17538375the performance is pretty good in my experience. not beastmode, but good enough. I think people overstate the importance of performance sometimes
>>17538391I unironcally lost my sense of smell from covidhow can I tell if people can smell me after 2-3 hours or is asking them the only way?> tfw went to a bar with 9 sprays of sauvage and a drunk girl across the bar 15 feet away yelled "something smells so fucking good"
>>17538406Damn who is that sexy goth bad boy that smells so darn good.
>>17538355Oh, how's the performance?
>>17538406>how can I tell if people can smell me after 2-3 hours or is asking them the only way?you should just ask. I think guys into frags tend to underrate the performance of their perfumes.
How's le beau le parfum? Im looking something for fall/winter
>>17538431>something for fall/winterget sneedbomb extreme
>>17538424Please refer to them as perfumes and not "frags" when posting in this thread, thank you.
>>17538431Jaipur Homme EDP.
>>17538437I used both just to trigger both sides of the debate. I'll be sure to use the word "cologne" next time
>>17536694athenean. Also, philosykos edp has good performance. you are just a noselet.
>>17538375I'd give it a chance. Use it for a week and get some air in it then leave it for a couple of months.
No I'm not gayUnless....
>>17538592For me, it's 2 MAN
>looking at some randoms collection on parfumo.net>he made several collections on his profile>for summer, for winter, for office etc>there is a group: unisex>dior homme intense listed here
Why does my JPG le male le parfum smell like alcohol for the first couple minutes and I get no vanilla anymore? Smelt great when I got it but its been a few months and it seems to have gone bad or something.
>>17538792if you kept it in full sunlight I guess it could have gone off a bit. if not it's probably just subjective or you're trying it on in different temperatures or something
>>17536694Dior Balade Sauvage. Celine Cologne francois.
What do u all think of pdm layton for spring/autumn?I really liked it since it remembered me of my uncle. Its classy,elegant and good enough performance
What fragrance did he wear? Hugo Boss?
>>17538835from what I've heard he didn't like fragrances and didn't wear any. pretty sure Hugo Boss wasn't making fragrances back thenNapoleon wore frags though, and there have been some attempts to recreate them
Any of you guys wear clones?
>>17538835none, we've been over this
>>17536939Nautica Voyage should be your go to, try Dolce and Gabbana Light Blue edp
>>17536939Light blue eau intense or maybe light blue forever.
>>17538819i bet you smell cute with it even in spring
>>17538843only Neroli Intense (clone of 4711 with better longevity) and Moustache EDP (Clone of YSL Tuxedo)but in general I think there's too many good original cheapies out there to bother with clones IMO
>mfw when new Nasomatto frag in Aprilsource: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7nV_WLuyMH4
>>17538239Francesca Bianchi - under my skin
Eros isn't beastmode, I was lied to. Performance is decent, but it's not exceptional. Are the EDP or Parfum versions better?
This is what ive been wearing most times im out, the gf loves it but its about halfway empty, gonna go on a refil with it and buy something new too, any reccs on similar fragances or perfumes you´d have for me?22 y/o, male, 182cm tall, sporting a mustache and a mullet with stubble
>>17538929not massively similar, but Edition Blanche is in the same series and also nice, has a similar appeal where it's a bit fresh but a bit sweet and creamy without being tacky or overbearing
>>17538929+1 for edition blanche desu senpai
Encre Noir is soft shit. Give me Dracula brooding in his castle but also with the ability to trnasform into a Wolf and fuck Mina or woe Lucy as a gentleman.
>>17538816The bottle is opaque so I'd thought it'd be fine. I also heard something about letting air in the bottle?
>>17538962>encre noironly sport or extreme, brah
>>17538962Will I go right with this? >>17538968I like sport (i even like regular) but I want something darker
>>17538937>>17538960greatly considered, thank you
>>17538977What would you rec?
>>17538978idk look at notes and see what you want. mriga, varuek, sombre and rahassanai might fit the bill.i'm recommending prin but i'm too broke to test em all...
few know this but br540 is a ticking bomb. as soon as there are 540 baccarat rouge clones, francis cuckdijan will go rogue and plant a bomb at the IFRA HQ. it won't be long now...
>>17538962Antaeus is literally what you're describing. dark yet gentlemanly scent with a strong musky animalic leather backbone
>>17539015frag for this epic fail?
>>17538999fuck dubs check these trips for prin. based.
>>17539008there are a million clones already
>>17539015>>17539018fragranceless and unwashed for 3 days, as this board moves so slowly you can literally predict your own number>>17539039
>>17537731Jovan white musk
>>17539014Thank you will probably go with this.
>>17538866Yeah who the fuck thought Nautica Voyage was going to be a hit.
>>17539008>as soon as there are 540 baccarat rouge clonesThere's been tons of them and a new one came around that somewhat is crashing its market again, the Armaf Untold>go rogue and plant a bombArmenians are very soft compared to other caucasus people, sad because they are probably the ones who achieved the most while staying there and also the OG christians>>17538866>too many good original cheapies out there to bother with clones IMOWrong, at least in markets where cheapies cost the same as a designer bottle, also clones using the original formulas are a God send.
>>17537988EN L'extreme, Moustache EDP, Cool Water, Voyage, QuorumKind covers a lot of bases, right?
There's a new Cool Water lately. I hope they don't fuck it up like the last new releases.
>>17539204You should look into The Tux instead of Mustache EDP
>>17537956It was the first bottle I bought a few years back, loved it so much but as I bought other things I started using less and less. Performance is a letdown, I think I'm not a fan of the tonka. >>17538431Just got a sample and it's disappointing, smells very similar to gio absolu. If you like the tonka/bergamot combo they both have you'll like it. I get no vanilla notes from it.
>>17539014yeah this is what I was gonna say too. maybe salome or lovers tale if you wanna get a bit more andro with it
>>17539184>Armaf Untoldwhat's the quality like? My missus likes br540 and I like it on her but there's no way I'm paying for a full bottle and our decant is nearly out.
>>17536231I have two weddings coming up this summer, one as best man in England, one a family member in Italy.Any recommendations?
Anybody know where I can find a scent similar to this, or a cheaper alternative?
>>17539363Chopard Oud Malaki.
>>17539320Chanel Platinum Egoiste and Acqua di Parma Blu Mediterraneo Fico di Amalfi
I need a cheapish, solid freshie. I already have versace eau fraiche, and I love it but I associate it with my ex (bad thing)
Anyone has tried Compliment by Maison Violet? How does it compare to Carnal flower? How's the performance?
>>17538843i wear hacivat which is kind of a clone of aventus but mogs it in every way
>>17538929it’s the most basic bitch fragrance there is. buy literally anything else.
>>17539577Not everyone wants some shitty fragrance that smells like horse piss with musk like you do pal
>>17539207Still waiting for that Cool Water vintage formula edition, i don't mind if they charge 100 for it but they won't do it because it would be an admission the current bottle sucks>>17539286Supposedly a more tame, thick and floriental version. 35 to 50 bucks the 100ml.So not really similar to the t but seems it is less nauseating if you want to use it daily.>>17539577>it’s the most basic bitch fragrance there isWrong.
>>17538180Look, pal, I dont make the rules, it is what it is.
>>17537898PE smells good but definitely has a dated smell to it, especially noticeable in the drydown
>>17539595So you're saying it smells bad?
is this any good?
>>17539584i know, some people are plebs who just want to smell like lemon soap
>>17539596I am saying it smells good (great even) and that's all there is to it, falling into the dating or which age brackets is it for is going into massive homosexual behavior which is frowned upon in this manly thread for men
>>17539599Yeah, but other people like the smell of lemon soap, kek
>>17539618You seem like one of those mentally ill people who have to turn everything(Even agreements) into a confrontation because they are only instinctively used to people giving them negative attention and hating them.But there is only one homosexual in the conversation we are having, and it is not me.
>>17539599>Smell like shit or smell fresh, sweet and soapyIt is a hard choice isnt itDo you smell like shit just to be different and gatekeep or?
The craziest thing about some of the fags in this general is there is unironically people here who choose frags that smell like shit because they want to pretend like they have some kind of esoteric fragrance knowledge and are differentKekCouldnt be me
>>17539631Very low IQ post.
>>17539634The only "frags" that smell like shit in these threads are the sauvage, BdC and other depressing blue bottles for newly minted middle managers.Haven't you got some compliments to farm with your beast mode Jeremy fragrance tier "frags"?
>>17539652Yeah, I just wear niche fragrances that smell too strong and women tell me that I "Smell like shit"Its a compliment because I am actually trying to smell like shit because they just dont get the esoteric knowledge behind my choice in fragrance notesIm so ahead of everyone else and they are all just brainlets that like fragrances that smell fresh and sweet.I pity them, I really do.
>>17539651>Very low IQ post.Its a low iq post to point out that fags here unironically do the thing I am pointing out?There totally isnt tons of people here that go on and on about their gay stinky oud fragrances and shit that actively discourage use of a fragrance only because its popular.Its almost like the average person doesnt like smelling like a camels anus or something.
>>17539625>You seem like one of those mentally ill peopleI am not the one dating perfumes buddy, also you misread the post and deny your bottom position in this threadEverything you do is bad and you should feel bad
>>17539529try encre noire sport
>>17539673>There totally isnt tons of people here that go on and on about their gay stinky oud fragrancesI agree, there aren't really many animalic oud wearers in this thread. In fact, I don't think I've seen a single post on this subject in a week or so, so you're sperging out about nothing.Most people in this thread discuss either popular designer fragrances or old school popular designer fragrances, and I guess this conflict is between two posters from these two categories.
>>17539207Cool Water Intense was pretty good for the price, in my opinion. Nothing new and following the current sweet trend, but powerful and long-lasting. In the current market where anything that lasts longer than 15 minutes gets a niche treatment with hefty markup, I was surprised by this release. The only downside is that it has nothing to do with Cool Water. They should have released it under a different line. Anyway>aquatic>vetiverDropped.>>17539320Don't mog the bride and groom. Platinum Egoiste has already been recommended and I would go with something of similar quality and strength. You want to keep the sillage/projection down. Technically, even Cool Water would suffice. I've mostly been using PE myself and there have been a lot of weddings in my friend circle recently. More modern stuff that works would be the Bleu de Chanel line, LNDL Bleu Electrique or Gentle Fluidity Silver.>>17539585> the current bottle sucksI like the smell of the current bottle. They must have recently reformulated it (within the last 3-4 years or so) and have been handing out a bunch of free samples since then. I have a bottle of that and a Lancaster CW splash bottle, and due to their differences in the drydown I would rate them as different fragrances, but I couldn't place one over the other. Haters gonna hate, but to me current CW is fine.
>>17539341Looks interesting, I'll check it out - is it a beast? As the other guy said I don't want to mog the groom, but equally I don't want something that I need to respray throughout the day.>>17539514The AdP has awful longevity ratings I already have Terre and Voyage which I love, I would use those if it wasn't for their average longevity. Will check egoiste tho, cheers.>>17539687>Don't mog the bride and groom.this is good advice, cheers. i don't want beast sillage but i do want something that will last a good 8 hours without needing respray and isn't cloying in italian summer heat. Will check your recs.
you fags need to start layering kouros with barnyard oud, i've been telling you
>>17539679is it worth buying if i already have the og?
>>17539697if you want a more easygoing summer flanker with some citrus and a bit aquatic then yes. it's definitely more accessible than the OGI don't usually like aquatics, but I think it works surprisingly well with that Encre Noire dna
>>17539687>but to me current CW is fine.I have a 2009-10 bottle and IT SUCKS compared to the '98 Lancaster i had, even in the aperture they are different. The Coty one is powdery and with a stringent lemon, the old one was quite green and there's an obvious ozonic hint to it, maybe it still had high quality oak moss on it.I read some blogger said CW after 2014 just downright sucks compared to all old ones, it uses the body spray formula to cut costs and it doesn't translate well into perfume because the aerosol is supposed to be dry and citrusy. I agree CW is okay for the price in discounters but locally it costs 50 bucks, i can snatch Cartier and some Lacoste bottles for that price which is absurd, let alone the arab bottles which are tenfold more value. I just want the old formula bro, and to get paid because job sucks, as soon as i get surplus money i will buy two or three CW clones and report back.
>>17539702buy al rehab black champion, supposedly a CW clonesomeone from this thread needs to bite the bullet already, there are no proper reviews
>>17539706Yes, i was the one who posted that earlier because i went reading into the CW/GIT clones.Hell, might as well post the other 2 clones i rarely see posted: Rasasi Egra and Lattafa Raghba For Man.Sadly only the Champ one and the Lattafa are cheap around these parts and i have zero money right now as i am trying not to get in debt, so stuff like Adventure Knight or the discontinued Chez Bond are out of the league at this moment, Tres Nuit is still out of stock.Between Lattafa and Al Rehab i will go for the latter as Dakar is pretty damn good for what it is.>there are no proper reviewsVery few also pajeets suck at reviewing frags, bunch of boneheaded poo wranglers.
>>17539706>>17539717This shit better be worth it.
>>17539722Despite being the clone of a well regarded frag i think it still lives in obscurity, who knows if it is as good as the now famous Dakar.You will be the judge teutonanon, want to save some money myself.
>>17539722mashallah brudi, is that oriental-style? if it's good i'll pull the trigger too
>>17539726I got CW, vintage CW, Aspen, Green Irish Sneed, Dakar and Drakkar Noir. I will compare it against those.>>17539730Yes, it is.
>>17539667This isn't an issue if you have any sort of presence whatsoever.
>>17539685Yes exactly, very high IQ post thank you.
>>17539696(Current formulation) Kouros really isn't that animalic, it's very floral and quite dandyish.
>>17538870Basenotes boomers are shitting and pissing their pants over this promo vid.
>>17539747thats where the barnyard oud comes into play
>>17539772fragrantica is also seething, lol (lmao even)this is mild fetish stuff at most, not very earth-shattering in the western world 23 years after 2000 (for better or worse)
>>17539740nice, i'm looking forward to your review
What do you thi k of ToF from ELDO?
>>17539548Where are my niche bros, any help
Hey fags... Looking for a spring summer fragrance.As sad as it is, the most compliments I've ever gotten on a fragrance have been on molecule 01. I only put on like half a spray because to people who are sensitive to iso-e super, it can be overwhelming. The compliments and comments I've gotten have ranged from you smell like sexy pencil shavings to it smells just like Pepsi or cola, to just you smell good in general. Haven't really gotten that ever wearing creed aventus or tam dao edp or bvlgari aqua.Should I just get another bottle of molecule 01? Is there a cheaper way to just get the iso-e super? Will distilling your own iso-e super really get you the same effect as molecule 01? Let me know fags. Pls. Help me.
Any of you lads smelled Dior Jules?
>>17539918Iso-e super smells different than M01 to me. Iso-e is pencil shavings all the way, M01 is a faint smell of book/paper. This is why I'd suggest getting M01 again if it got you the reactions you desired. It might just work better for you than regular iso-e super, of which there are apparently multiple versions with different isomeric ratios.
>>17539933Thanks man...You summed it up nicely. This is what I had thought as well but you confirmed.my suspicions.
>>17539848never smelled it. I like leather frags
>>17538962Ted Lapidus Extreme
>>17539966you never smelled it
>>17538962they give away encre noire to plebs on singapore flights hahahaha
>>17539995encre noir lip balm sounds nauseating
>>17539995That's it I give in, I'm buying a bottle of sauvage.
Springtime crowdpleasers? (And by crowd I of course mean women)
>>17540068Smegma for Him
dammit someone managed to buy a cheap hades elixir before me. price was pretty good considering what it costs in yurop
>>17539008Wouldn't put it past this untermensch currynigger
> go to walmart> buy fragrance> decant it and refill with vodka > return it for cash since they wont bother to inspect it any other life hacks to get free cologne?
I have a 25% off card for macys and need something for universityI should get some sauvage elixir right? Ill be on campus all day so need something that project a long time.I also considered Allure Homme Sport and Bleu de Chanel EDP but neither of them seem to be as beast mode in terms of performance
>>17539995I like it.
Any must-try comme des garcon fragrance? their lineup is huge.
>>17540366It's shit.>>175403682, 2 Man, Rouge, Black, Odeur 53.
>>17540368Agree with other user, but black is way too smoky for me. Rogue is okay, but id just try the incense series instead. 2 and 2 man are must tries.>>17540377Really odeur 53? I've tried 71 and wasn't into it
Just bought Halston Z14. I hear the current formulation is actually really good.
>>17540384Any recent Tom Ford is. I don't think he's even the creative director of the perfume line anymore, it's just brand name cash grabs.>>17540382Because while you can seldom wear it, it's so unique that you just have to try it out.
>>17540339>stealing $10 fragrance you're a smart little nigger, aren't you?
>>17540368no, it's all shit with drugstore quality / performance
>>17540392There was a great review of it in the last thread. >>17533581
>>17540366I got a sample of this. It's a fine woody aromatic thing, but didn't blow me away. I certainly wouldn't spend the asking price.
>>17540428>>17540428walmart has dior fahrenheit aktually
*mogs your favorite fragrance for less than $20 a bottle*u mad?
What the fuck this literally smells like my grandpas medicated foot cream I cant believe I let you retards trick me into buying this, 30 fucking dollars down the drain. Fuming.
>>17540452I have one, it’s alright but a little too soapy.
>>17540455Just keep spraying it until you like it
>>17536580Comme des Garcons black pepper. It just smells like black pepper. IDK what I expected
>>17540443Nice, spicy woods and sweat is exactly what I'm after. Plus the bottles look great.
anybody have a problem with the atomizer on new batches of CDNIM?I have an older one and it sprays fine but I have two newer ones and and they both leak liquid onto the top of the bottle, its really fucking annoying not only does it leave a smell in my room but the alcohol degrades the paint on the bottle too Just gonna have to buy some portable atomizers to decant it into
>>17540455Why are you blind buying mall tier fragrances?
>>17540452>Smells like every single man in the spring and summerMogged indeed.
>>17540455i dont like it either. tries to be everything at the same time. absolute is better desu
>>17540366haven't tried the parfum, but the original costa azzura is probably the most boring tom ford fragrance. basically just smells like every designer marine aquatic like bvlgari except 3x the price for no reason
>>17540455I kind of like it sometimes but usually there is something really harsh about it
>>17540641imagine trusting a coked out German narcissist who obssesively dresses all white when he tells you that something was "safe"you wouldn't survive long in a Berlin techno club, ja?
I have no taste im buying bdc and nobody is gonna stop me
>>17540687it better be the edp boi
>>17538870>>17539772>mfw Fagsomatto wearers
>>17539919Didn't know that one, nice, it says that it smells like Aramis with Kouros but with leather and castoreum instead of civet.Sounds complex, now i can practically confirm my local retailer never puts testers of stuff with civet/castor because they put all the Dior stuff (sans the private collection line) yet no Jules.>>17540392>I hear the current formulation is actually really goodWrong.>>17540455Your grandpas medicated foot cream smells really nice then you dumb faggot, put that over your face
Frag to wear to a funeral?
Any recs for something similar to nasomatto blamage but not super expensive? I really like it.
>>17540811Wood-scented Anal lube
>>17540829t. never sniffed blamageits not woody, despite what retard fragrantica says.if anything its powdery and floral, smells kinda like a comfy grandma frag.
>>17540840Yeah i bet you would know, fagboy
>>17540865go spray yourself up with sauvage in hopes of getting pussy(it wont happen).meanwhile im soaked from wet snatch while wearing grandmas old leftovers.:)protip: wear what you like personally, not whatever you read about online in a desperate attempt to please others, in short bUrself.
>>17540713based fagsomatto hater
>>17538239I have a sample of this and it’s surprisingly pleasant on my skin, didn’t get the fecal note. Very animatic musky but almost wearable.MKK, as >>17538279 noted, wears like an old lady scent on me and isn’t particularly weird. I’d suggest Muscs Tonkin, it’s like MKK but with a nice floral thing going on, seductive and wearable if somewhat feminine.
>>17538329This one surprised me, it’s awesome and I think wearable.
>>17540993God damn if you find Muscs Tonkin wearable then MKK must smell absolutely fucked lol Kiehls smells like an old lady too Honestly Jovan musk is really good. Its like a sweeter super rounded out kiehls
>>17540877>hopes of getting pussyI hope of smelling good, women only smell the money>protip: wear what you like personallyWell said, wish more anons realized this sooner>grandmas old leftoversWhite florals smell like carrion to me, i can't stand them, what's wrong with me bros
>>17539995>tfw Emirates hands out Tygar in their first class amenity kits
>>17540993>>17541001Somewhat unrelated but reading about those funk frags i read an unholy recipe used by pranksters and the kind of people that appear in Nasomatto trailers.A very warm egg white, 2 to 3 drops of bleach and 1 to 2 drops of urine. From someone sick or such thing being a bit older then the drops are +1. It's french baby batter.
>>17541001In fairness, I don’t find MKK unwearable because it’s harsher or more animalic, it’s just a boring one trick pony that smells like old lady. I wouldn’t be concerned about offending people by wearing it, honestly I was disappointed.
>>17540468I just tested this and I don't get black pepper so much as ochem lab. Something in it reminds me of acetone or some other organic solvent, if there's anyone here with a good knowledge of aromachemicals let me know what I might be smelling. Love it but probably won't buy a bottle. Recently tried EN a l'extreme as well and that's way more unwearable to me. Smells acrid, like burnt plastic or something
>>17540455It's good for winter.
>>17540807Funerals and weddings are stupid and pleb. Avoid them.
>>17541076seems like you have a weird palate more than anything

>>17541004Wtf. I feel left out. Tygar was actually one of my favorite realistic citrusy frags
>>17541138Never knew that sodomite shilled here, i like his quick reviews but i find his videos ooze a certain homosexuality i don't like, seems like a decent person anyways.Sometimes he lands some rare stuff but never goes beyond the quick smell which i find frustrating at times.
>>17541165>homosexualityHe still has a nice wife though.
>>17539430Black Afghano is wearable as fuck.
>>17541176He's married? to a girl? i am surprised, could swear he was an ultra bottom.The lisp, the homo friends with AIDS, reviewing perfumes for starters, the hands. Cool guy but i still have my doubts.
>>17540713cringe nasomatto hater
>>17540840Nasomatto is alright value for niches. You don't need more than 1-2 sprays per use anyways
