>24, live in south floridabeen wearing dylan blue daily for a while but I want something new, still blueideally with better projection, that's my only gripe with dylan blue (only had edts, never got an edp so even that might solve it)any recs?
I just realized my favorite dna is af fierce. Is there a higher quality one with same dna but maybe a little spicier? I know about pdm Percival already
>>17637692dont forget to review it here, i'm curious what you think of it desu
I want something sexy for summer. Is there a fragrance with leather, rum, tobacco, musk and patchouli that works best in hot weather?I've got Tobacco Oud and Vanille Havanne which are amazing and work ok in hot weather but they're a little much. Is there something in that vein that's like a "Fraicheur" version of that genre if that makes any sense?
>>17637877baraonda. I don't think anyone finds those notes to be summer but I never cared for season conforming
I’m wearing vintage Davidoff Zino today. Some people say it’s similar to Guerlain heritage. But I find it more similar to Guerlain Jicky. Does anyone else pick up lavender and civet in Zino?
which one bros
>>17637852>>Fierce Confidence (flanker) is better. I also found Elysium by Roja Dove to have a similar vibe
favorite niche frag of all time. go. please don't bother mentioning clones, poorfags
>>17637941>Pic relatedHow? How is your pic related to DHI? Please break it down for me about how Dior relates to interracial crime.>>17637973Tough one. Original is 10/10 smell, 5/10 longevity. Intensa is 7/10 smell, 7/10 longevity.
What is better for summer?prada infusion vetiver 2015 or nishane colonize?
What's the best fragrance with Pink Pepper notes?
you guys werent lying about the encre noire sport, my god, smells so good i completely fell in love with it!
https://www.zoologistperfumes.com/collections/zoologist-samples/products/copy-of-zoologist-perfumes-greatest-hits-sample-set-2023-q2-15-samplesIs this worth it?
>>17638038Nishane Colongise by a landslide. Prade is too sweet,creamy and powdery for the summer heat and humidity and it turns cloyingly soapy.If you like Nishane try Acqua Di Parma Intensa.>>17638073I'm interested in this too. So far the best I've tried have been Burberry Beat for men and Ormonde Jayne for men.>>17638097Now get EN Extreme for cold weather before it disappears.>>17638113No it isn't. Zoologist is the most over rated house out there, they churn out "artistic" fragrances that are over priced and just don't smell great, and then people hype them because it's the cool thing to do. They are the emperor's new clothes of fragrance, and they are incredibly useful because anytime someone fervently praises them I can disregard their opinion.
>>17638141yea but look at this dapper fella. what house would you recommend getting a sample/discovery set from?
>>17638146If you're sampling something just because of a cute mascot I'd say just go collect Funko pops.Houses to sample:>Les Indemodables>Memoirs of a Perfume Collector>Thameen>Eris Parfums>Jovoy>Parfums di NicolaiThose are the best values in sample sets IMHO because they're full of amazing frags no one talks about and the price is fair.Others to try>Dusita>Initio>Les Baines Guerbois>Nobile 1942>Goutal Paris>Gallivant>Maitre Premier>Pierre Guillaume>Affinesence >Memo>Maison Crevalli>Rogue Perfumery >Mizensir>Nishane>Goldfield and Banks
Best aquatics for summer?
>>17638187>Issue Super Majeure>Dolce Gabbana Italian Love>Penhaligons Blasted Heath/Blasted Bloom>Bvlgari Aqua/Aqua Marine>Fat cocks raping my tender mouth>Azzaro Chrome Parfum/Extreme>Armani Aqua Di Gio Profumo>Polo Blue Parfum/Gold>Tom Ford Oud Minerale>Kenzo Homme EDT/Intense/EDP>Zegna Essenza Di Zegna (my favorite, discontinued but worth the price IMHO)>Chanel Allure Homme Sport
>>17638073Rochas Moustache EDP is a nice cheapie with prominent pink pepper in the opening
>>17638113no because they only have 2 or 3 good frags of which you should buy single decants. people like to disregard the brand entirely but t-rex is incredible. if it wasn't for the price...
>>17637789>Dior Savage for Mr. Magoo
Bogartbros and antibogartbros, what's your opinion on OG One Man Show? Never owned Bogart before.
>>17638250onlly Bogart I've tried is Pour Homme. it's alright. kind of smells like "ck one shock meets le male" or something
>>17638250OG one man show was extremely weak for me, to the point where i couldn't detect 10 sprays on my wrist after 5 minutes. therefore i don't really have an opinion on the smell as i could barely smell it.OMS oud edition is kind of shit because there is no oud in it, it just smells like an 80s soapy fragrance. if that's what you want then great but the name is misleading, many such casessignature is really good, my favorite from the brand
>>17638266>OG one man show was extremely weak for meit was same for memaybe batches problems or reformulated to deathI expect powerhouse but was really disappointed
Got a bunch of designer/Arab decants.If anyone wants first impressions of something on the pictures just tell me.I tried the stuff the arab ones are trying to clone
any new salome tier frags the last year or so? I fell off the frag hypetrain
>>17638328Tell us about that sharabara blue stuff.
>>17638018I think what he meant to say is that DHI is meant for homosexuals and that you’re a homo >>17638097Encre noir sport isn’t bad. Try Guerlain homo leau boisse and Royall Vetiver Noir. Or try something more classic like guerlain vetiver or givenchy vetyver
OP I'm planning my revenge against you just so you know. Be aware.
going to a concert this weekend, should i scare the hoes with murkwood or wear musc ravageur?
>>17638420what is the group?
>>17637862i will anon!excited for it
>>17638328tell us about the lattafa stuff
>>17638433Khamrah is really good, overtly sweet and gourmand for my taste, but it's amazing quality for the price.Smells like a cake of liquor and vanilla. Rich , warm and deep smell and lasts for days on skin
>>17638438what is the artist you are going to see you autistic fuck
>>17638441I'm not him you retarded ESL.
>>17637993Three way tie among Zegna Indonesian Oud, HOM Black #1, and Black Afgano
>>17638443Tauer is niche?
>>17638446yes, please stop being a newfriend and read the sticky>Niche fragrances are for the more experienced fragrance enthusiast who wants a richer and more complex scent profile. They are made by fragrance houses that exclusively produce perfumes and use higher quality ingredients. And of course with higher quality and exclusivity comes a much higher price tag than the designer fragrance lines. But be warned, Niche fragrances are not designed with mass appeal in mind, they are made for someone who wants an experience out of their fragrance's scent profile, which means they are much more likely to use scents that have a limited appeal to many people. Always test Niche frags before buying. Avoid blind buys of Niche frags if at all possible.
How does a dirty yuropoor such as myself acquire Pineward fragrances? I can't find any EU distributors.
>>17638451Are you an ESL? That was completely irrelevant to my question. You could have stopped at "yes".
>>17637993Tempo by dypique
>>17638452what about this site?https://www.ecuacionnatural.com/en/
>>17638458Bless you. Google didn't give me this one. They don't have a sample set though. God dman it man.
>>17638425japanese pop band>>17638459try parfumo for samples, otherwise import from pineward directly and eat the customs fees, no other way
>>17638459they have 5 ml versions of Pineward frags for 19 EUR each, that's not (too) much desu senpai
>>17638462It definitely is too much, considering the entire discovery set is 90 bucks and there's a lot in there.>>17638461Damn I guess I'll just choke on customs fees and delays and frustrations, but at least I'll know for a fact what I want to buy after.
>>17638459>>17638462you can also ask the store directly if they can send you samples (eg. with a full bottle purchase), they are dealing with niche frags so most probably there is some flexibility in their sales methods
>>17638467Yeah that would be cool but considering the big variety the house has I want the entire sample set.
i think versace eros edp even though its minty is great on a summer night out
>>17638412SOTD: Sundowneron a related note: fr*grantica voters are idiots, this is perfectly fine for a late spring or summer day as well and best for summer night outs (as described by Andy on his website)
What are some gothrock fragrances from Pineward?
Got a decant of When the Rain stops. Does NOT smell like a situation of when the rain stops dont know what MM was thinkingIt does not smell feminine either, if you would say this is MM Lazy Sundays - which I have never smelled - I would believe you because it smells clean, not necessarily freshcomfy scent for the spring though
>>17638483After a few extra whifs, I don't understand how ANYONE could think this smells something remotely to "when it stops raining" (pic related; dumb fucking misleiding review)anyways, it does smell clean but very forgettable
>>17638183cheers. I wasn't sincere about wanting to buy it because of the cute mouse, but I'd be lying if I said the appearance of the fragrances isn't what caught my eye to begin with.
are there any good decant sites that aren't in red states? I accidentally got some decants from a place in t*xas and I want to not repeat that mistake
>>17638493>>17638483overrated line of fragrances desu. I got sick of by the fireplace after a week. jazz club is truly great thoughever
>>17638509I've ordered from microperfumes before, based in Calabasas. just be conscious of whether or not you're buying the vials with a sprayer. I've ordered from scentsplit as well, which is based in Houston, and had a good experience.
>>17638510Will try that one next, heard great reviews of that as well! I still need a fragrance for the colder months evenings and I was thinking about jazz club or vanilla tobacco (TF) desu
Im waiting to be 60+, grey beard, not giving a single fuck and putting one some tobacco scents
>>17638519I'd be very selective and sample more than those before you buy for cold weather. at least where I live, the cold doesn't last long so if I'm buying a fragrance I'm only wearing 3 months of the year at most, it better be something I absolutely love. I made the mistake of buying too quickly
why does every youtuber shits and hates Fahrenheit but always recommend the most generic smelling shit? I tried it and it's the most aggressive and masculine thing I've ever smelt.When I thought about male fragrances that's what I always imagined
>>17638532the drydown is fairly different but I still love it, as does my wife. I think I've only heard YouTubers say it's not the same as it was before.
any idea on where i can buy the neroli portofino dupe by maison alhambra. I found it on some dodgy site but +shipping it costs 70 bucks. Which i am not blindbuying with, especially with non brand names.Any idea on where i can get it cheap and shipped to europe?
>>17638536which is also bullshit, new fahrenheit is a rare exceptions to reformulations ruining scents. it's very close to vintage bottles and actually goodbottom line is just ignore fragrance youtubers, the only thing more subjective and autistic than that must be mechanical keyboards or something lmao>>17638522just smoke a cigar, it's the best tobacco scent you can hope to get
>>17638412Bogart Story Blue>>17638250Bogart Story Blue
>>17638541don't do it. get Neroli Intense by Jeanne en Provence insteadit costs 10$, is easily found in Europe and smells very similar to Neroli Portofino. it's frequently recommended in this thread. I'm also literally wearing it right now
>>17638514Thanks, nothing but mall stuff but better than nothing I guess for when I'm craving creed or tom ford in small quantities
>>17638564do you live near dallas? there's a scent room in downtown and they carry a lot of niche stuff. you can spray their bottles on skin, or test strips (they give you a pen to mark them). I've gone and just said I'm gonna sample a bunch and sleep on it after smelling the drydowns. they're nice people, and the prices are typical retail prices if you do decide to buy
>>17638570I don't want to ever be near dallas, or buy stuff from dallas, or support texas in the slightest way, that's why I'm looking for alternatives to scentsplit. I don't even want to fly over dallas on the way to mexico, I would book a connecting flight to go through new zealand if that's what it takes
>>17638562How´s the longevity and sillage ?
>>17638573I don't blame you. I suffer in texshit
>>17637789is the cap magnetic?
>>17638574they're good enough for 10$. you're never going to get a fragrance with this profile that's beastmode, even the Tom Ford has meh performance. Neroli and citrus notes are volatile and the lack of base notes keeps the fragrance light and refreshing, but briefif you go heavy on the trigger the performance is good enough, I'd say around 4 hours of smelling like soapy white flowers and citrus
>tfw want to go on a date again to wear date fragrances>
>>17638595if you really crave the experience of wearing a shitty blue frag that lasts all of 2 hours, you're welcome to do so anytime even without an occasion and as an incel, anon
>>17638597>blue frag>dateanon what is wrong with you
>>17638194>sauvagealso ADG profondo
Is it worth getting into fragrances when you live in a third world country that constantly smells like shit? I'm talking piss and industrial chemicals in elevators and streets smelling like sewage to the point where you have to wonder whether or not they set the river on fire again
>>17638601sounds like a good reason to mask that shit with very strong perfume. back in the day European dandies would soak their tissues in cologne to cover their nose with while walking through particularly smelly streetsmaybe that's why Indians and Arabs are known to douse themselves in fragrances
>>17638601a turd with perfume is still a turd
This seems to be discontinued. Is there anything similar? None of the fougeres I tried are really close.....
>>17638616Makes sense. Anything you'd recommend for this specific problem? So far what I've seen from the threads is that marinating yourself in a lavender barrel isn't that popular>>17638623i'm mostly white, my diet is mostly vegetables and beef with basically none of stinky spices that the indians eat. All of my hygiene products, even basic stuff like soap and skincare, are mainly imported from Italy & Spain. I just have the unfortunate terminal illness of living in Tbilisi where hogs raid embassies for their trash cans and streets are littered with dogshit
How is Azzaro pour Homme? Wearable in a hot hot summer (like in Greece or Italy)?
>>17638698should be okay in hot weather I thinkit's a classic, but it will make you smell like a working class uncle to most people
>>17638694>Anything you'd recommend for this specific problemnot really, aside from "buy strong perfume". see what works for you

Hey Anons, I'm looking to up my fragrance game and was wondering: what's the best fragrance to wear when you want to smell wealthy? I want to smell like I just stepped out of a luxury car or a high-end boutique. So far I’ve been utilizing bdc and aventus. But now every normie has them. I'm open to any suggestions, whether it's a classic fragrance or a newer one, I want something with crazy silage and projection that can fill up an entire room, like zyklon B.Either way thanks in advance for your help!
>>17638777Ganymede is the one you are looking for
Fuck Chanel and their retarded prices.What's a good clone of pic related?
>>17638785>chanel is too priceyyou're in the wrong hobby buddy
>>17638795I said Chanel prices are retarded. Not because I think €200 for a fragrance is too much but for other reasons. But keep projecting "buddy"
>>17637704Anons, I need your advice here. My dad's turning 42 next week, and I want to surprise him with a cologne for the summer. I've got a budget of $75, and he's not a fan of sweet fragrances (I wear to wear some mainstream blue scents that he can't stand).I stumbled upon Polo Cologne Intense, which is the 2021 flanker of Polo OG. It's described as wearable and not overly sweet. I haven't seen much discussion about this frag on /fa/. However, I did come across Gent Scents review, where he praised it as a good wearable modern interpretation of the OG.So, my question is: Have any of you tried Polo Cologne Intense? What are your thoughts on it? I need to confirm it's a good fit for my dad.Thanks!
>>17638813does he wear any fragrances already?my dad liked the bottle of Encre Noire Sport I gave him a lot. that's a nice non-sweet modern freshie, at a nice priceif he likes old school classics, something like Eau Sauvage or ADP Colonia could also work well. or even Grey Vetiver if he likes it green and earthy
Alright you queers I need a genuine consensus, tits, ass, or face?
>>17638873face > tits > assyou can train a soggy assyou cant train soggy tits or cface
>>17638873face = ass >>> tits
>>17638823My father actually has a collection of colognes that he has received as gifts (or maybe purchased) over the years, but most of them are still full except for Beau de Jour, Farenheit, and Ombre Noire. Personally, I'm not a big fan of them, although I believe Ombre Noire is of great quality for mature men. Keep in mind I want something wearable in the summer.
Fragrance to seduce a woman?
Euro bro’s should I buy the Kerosene and Pineward sample sets? Theyre like 100€ each but if there are some bangers in there could potentially have initieret scents no one in the entire EU except 1 or 2 schizos in eastern europe have.
I found a deal for Aramis, priced at just 24 euros/110ml.Is it truly a gem or just a fragrance meme for nostalgic autists?Not sure if it's a worthy addition to my collection...
>>17638901Could potentially have unique scents*
>>17638250bogart signature and one man show are the only bogarts worth a shit, but even then you gotta be into the oldschool suff. everything else from bogart has been nothing but straight up offensive to my nose. a cheap composition from whatever leftovers they found at the bottom of the vat. doesn't have to smell good, as long as it lasts long and projects a lot. indian cab driver tier, the entire house.
>>17638891sounds like you should give him something else than a fragrance if he has many and doesn't use them
>>17638473With a fragrance name like "Sundowner", it becomes very apparent that it is supposed to be worn on summer evenings. Fragrantica reviewers just never test fragrances in the summer once they have decided they are for the winter. Some stuff gets straight up awesome during the summer and is absolutely worth wearing, even though the average fragrantica user would get an aneurysm if you told them that.>>17638873>>>>17638887Supporting this. Face is of course the defining factor for beauty. Ass needs to be great, and except for the base shape it can be easily brought into shape - which a woman should have done already. Tits...exist.
I looked for>best fragrances for men 2023and allowed algorithm to guide me into this, did I do good?smells good, using it for some days now
Reminder that this is the best summer fragrance of that last 10 years
>>17638935>did I do good?yes you did anon, enjoy!
>>17638873Can't decide, ass equality turns me on like tits with huge pink areolas and thick as a thumb nipples.>SOTD Bogart Story Blue
>>17638946thank you!I'm a huge sucker for mythology and the color blue so the bottle really captured me too
>>17638532Fahrenheit smells like shit, its terrible. Probably the most actively offensive designer fragrance ive ever smelled. I guess its possible the bottle at my local sephora is 10 years old and spoiled or some shit but it seems like it's just awful
>>17638935I'm not hating on your choice but I really don't get Eros. Every youtube frag vid is hyping it, 9/10 times it comes out on top of every other frag, women love it, etc. I think these tests are flawed however, because 1) women don't know what the fuck they want, 2) fragrances smell different on paper and skin (not to mention various skin types), 3) on these tests the fragrances are smelt immediately upon spraying, without drydown. Everytime I go to the store to try out fragrances it's always an 'eh' reaction from Eros. It's nothing interesting, nothing stands out and I think Dylan blue is a lot better. I'll give it 1 more try and I'll literally go in there and try just Eros EDT, Eros EDP and Eros Parfum (3 sprays each) on different spots of my skin and walk around the mall a bit to test it out.
>>17638962I truly appreciate your well drawn out post but I just ask around random friends about which fragrance to buy next, and this time I got even lazier and asked google instead kek, ordered it without even trying (not a regular here on this lovely board if you couldn't tell already)I received 0 feedback in the last 5 days but then again didnt do anything but gym and work, I'll hop in soon as I have some stuff going in the next 7 days or so
>>17638962>>17638974Eros is fucking disgusting. Heavily vanilla sweet Invictus clone.
>>17638903It's a great leather chypre and one of Bernard chants best compositions.
>>17638964Peak fertility aestheticsWould shoot my semen without mercy>>17638984>murkwoodI see, a citicen of culture
>>17638998Who is this enchanting woman?
>>17638952Antaeus is also a classic as far as mythologically-named perfumes go
Is la nuit de l'homme good for a party?I lost my sample of Eros in the car for a few months so it's probably bad by now.
>>17638935>>17638974don't worry, normies tend to like Eros, it's a pretty safe choice if you want something sweet and youthful
>>17639010not perfect because nobody will smell it
>>17639002She goes by the name of 'Chloe B'. Not a 10/10.Chloe is the pale polish quirky girl from next door who's into dirty stuff and whispers into your ear to shot your semen into her while her pussy is wet like the atlantic ocean.
>>17639014Maybe Tom Ford Black Orchid?But it seems a little too hot for that right now, even though the party will be at night.I could wear Aventus though.
>>17639034yeah those two are more like itI think black orchid is fine at night unless your nights are super hot or something
>>17638328Club de Nuit sillage is shitLe male le parfum is good but super boring I'll keep reporting
>>17639050It will likely be really hot inside the party, but 56 degrees outside.
>>17638562I second this, got the recommendation from here and it's a top 5 scent for me (I got something like 40 frags and tried countless others).And probably THE best value in the price range.
>>17639058You just win my trust. Please keep reporting.
>>17638903>Not sure if it's a worthy addition to my collection...Been there. Avoid if you are under 70. Not kidding.
>>17638916>doesn't use themYeah, but he uses these three>except for Beau de Jour, Farenheit, and Ombre Noire.If none of you recommend Polo Cologne Intense I'll go for Encre Noire Sport. At least is cheap.
>>17639006pretty kino name and mythosbut mine has better bottle (can we call them bottles?)>>17639013glad to hear it, anonwhat I realised is if you check out 3 SEO bait pages and go for the highest median item, you usually end up getting something decentidk if SEO shapes us or if we shape SEO, but it works
>>17639087Like I bought a bunch of random samples of supposedly universally liked good safe stuff because I want to have things to wear safely at the office or in social gatherings without giving it too much thought, but damn. Sillage literally screechs. And le male lp dries down too much into the vanilla .And I'm not even an armaf hate and I liked the og le male to a certain extent, but damn, two dissapointments one after another.Hacivat goes next, and I have tried pretty much every fragrance that goes around aventus DNA.
>>17638873Face is of the most importance. I like tits better than ass, but no tits is more acceptable than no ass
rate the drip bros
>>17638951Why posting cows in a frag thread?
>>17639118Good tierDylan blueShit frag tierSauvage, Eros
Looking somthing for summer, would be Le Beau Le Parfum fine in high heat?
>>17638328Hacivat opens so heavy on the lemon and so synthetic that I'm starting to think that the guy just poured club de Nuit intense on the decant. The drydown seems creamier and sweeter than club de Nuit intense so I'm guessing it's legit, but I was expecting something else, something more airy, heavier on the moss. Let's see how it developsSo far, smells like lemon candy
this is a long shot but did anyone here try anything from andrea maack? there is a recent rasquiet release (solstice) and a ropion (magma) release from 2022 that seem kinda interesting but seem to go under the radar
>>17639160Why do you need our opinion for that? What impression did you get when you tested it yourself? Would you wear it in high heat?
I unironically still smell this on my jacket a few days after I accidentally sprayed a part of it on my jacket
>>17638785>blanche supremacistget out
This hobby is dumb as fuck. If you have 4 bottles you have enough smell to last a lifetime. I bought pic related. It's good. Its smells like rubbing alcohol, then mint, then coconut, then some other shit. It's $30. Dorks that collects dozens of bottles need to stop jerking each other off about how smart they are. Stop watching youtube video about it; it's the same as the magic the gathering dorks, or the fantasy football dorks. If you want to feel good about yourself, so exercise and lose weight. Spraying yourself once with every single one of your 230 bottles won't make you happy, just thousands of dollars poorer.
>>17639449thats cause youre broke and a lil stupid haha
>>17639240seems like anything that doesn't perform well on skin is supposed to be sprayed on fabric. but on the flipside anything that does project and last on skin needs to be kept away from clothing.

>>17639548Man it almost smells like distant wildfires, I don't even know how to properly describe it besides that. I love it. Gf approves of it. It projects and lasts forever.
>>17639449>This hobby is dumb as fuckIt hurts because it's true. Recently, I decided to sell off my collection and now I'm left with just 8 bottles. While I adore the experience of smelling different fragrances, I couldn't justify owning over 4 liters of cologne. Moving forward, I've set a limit of owning a maximum of 10 bottles and will be purchasing decants and tiny amounts of oud to continue enjoying the experience.Also, you are a poorfag and your taste is shit.
>>17639568>>17639449i bought 20+ bottles in the last 3 weeks.... i agree i will probably just gift 80% of them so i have two for each seaons/ date/ work
>>17638906>Mastercard Intense>not amex platin oud
>>17639569>two for each seaons/ date/ workThat's my point. 2/3 fragrances for each season provides enough flexibility.
Guys, I need ideas to store my shitton of samples and decants that I have laying around Where do you guys store them ?
>>17639578i store them in a basic IKEA paper box
>>17639578mix em all togethersprayreview it here
>>17639579Some people apparently use ammo boxes with somewhat good results
>>17639583load up that 5.56 edp
>>17639568I agree that 10 bottles is a sensible limit
etat de libre d'orange discovery set... too bad its 5/7 womens perfumes.. though jasmine cigarette is fucking sexy. Smells like a high priced whore out on the town.
>>17639593All ELDO perfumes are unisex.Which ones are there in the discovery set tho?
>>17639593my favorite from them is Fat Electrician. very wearable despite the wacky idea of a gourmand vetiver
>>17639593>Smells like a high priced whore out on the town.well what are you waiting for anon? wear it with pride
>>17639161On the deep dry down the moss emerges and the similarities with aventus are minimal, it gets more interesting, it's a totally mass appealing wearable moss which is something I would never thought it could exist The performance also is amazing, after almost 12 hours I still feel it projects. So that confirms me that the fragrance is synthetic as hell, despite people claiming otherwise.
i need...a fragrance that smells of cuba
Any good fresh apple or pear frags for Men?
Its here lads, testing hawas, 9pm an athuri blue
>>17639129Because she make me wanna have offsprings with her. Literally semen demon.>>17639161This. Hacivat is a bullshit Aventus alternative, similar bad like CdNIM, Afnan Supremacy Not Only Intense(not even similar to Aventus, candy fruits). But somehow idiotic youtubers recommend them over and over again.>>17639449CW Ocean Extreme is a lavender, peppery fresh blue fragrance, nothing near coconut.
Athuri blue>very pleasent, soft, sweet>like if bdc was sweeter and less formalVery niceAfnan 9PM>very sweet, also very pleasentCan see the similarities with ultramale, will wear this in fall/winterHawas>very fruity and sweetOh wow
I uhm lol i get a faint cat piss-y smell from athuri blueMight just be thoug because i got the other on the other arm
>>17639623>semen demonCome on... she is ugly, average at best. I'm sure you'd fuck a dog if its tits were big enough. I hate coomers so much.
>>17639623>This. Hacivat is a bullshit Aventus alternative, similar bad like CdNIM, Afnan Supremacy Not Only Intense(not even similar to Aventus, candy fruits). But somehow idiotic youtubers recommend them over and over again.Glad to see someone else with the same feelings about it. I kept reading that it was a good natural approach to aventus DNA but with a new direction and if they told me it was another cheap aventus clone I would have believed it In fact, I own club de Nuit limited edition and I think its actually the better fragrance of the two
for me it's qaeed al fursan. although i'd never buy a full bottle if aventus or any aventus derivative
>>17637848Luna Rossa Carbon
>>17639632yeah she looks like my GF except with an ugly facedon't know what our resident Quentin Bisch loving coomer sees in her
>>17639633I've never smelled Aventus, but I've smelled Montblanc Explorer and Mancera Cedrat Boise and really disliked both of themare they just bad takes on the DNA that only get hype because the original is so hyped, or is this scent profile not for me?
Hawas bottle is from 2023 and apparently its reformulated hard..... bummer
>>17639656I guess you don't like the DNA, because Cedrat Boise is actually good. In any case the best thing about aventus is the fresh opening which is considerably better than anything else trying to imitate it. But on the dry down is 99% club de Nuit intense
Final verdict, turathi blue is a blue frag perfect for work in the summer imoHawas after an hour lost the more bitter top and settled for a really light fresh fragranceKinda eager wearing 9pm in summer but that might be too cloying
Thoughts on picrel?>>17639656For me Aventus is a disappointing meme.>>17639632>I hate coomers so muchThis. I feel like going from 6 to 7 on kinsey scale after posts like this.
musc au ravager is supposedly a very animalistic scent, any takers?
>>17639718it's good and one of the best scents if you dress in a goth fashionperformance is contentious though and there are some other fragrances with basically the same idea like Heeley Cardinal or Jovov Liturgieif you want to try it but can't find it for testing you can also go to a local catholic church, sit in the front during mass and try to catch a whiff of the incense lmao
>>17639722Musc Ravageur (2000) is an interesting and very successful attempt at making musk without a typical white musk molecule, removing the “laundry” aspect of most modern musks and creating something oriental, fatty, and animalic like the musks of old. Having smelled deer musk, this is by no means that kind of smell via vegetal proxy, but it is a wonderfully sensual musk in it’s own right, full of the loudness and performance all the “beastmode” power fragrance fans crave. Due to it’s aggressive nature, Musc Ravageur leans very much male, despite being genderless in composition, and this is due to sociological conventions. The average self-identified CISHET woman would likely find Musc Ravageur too rich, overtly-sexual, and lacking subtlety; that’s not to say there aren’t some ladies who love headstrong fragrances (they were the rage in the 70’s and 80’s, with fragrance gender lines blissfully blurred back then because of it), but on average, strait guys looking to troll for dates at clubs and bars seem the likeliest purchasers of Musc Ravageur. The biggest obstacle to this being made reality however, is the prestige price point of the average Editions de Parfums Frédéric Malle composition, which rival Creed at MSRP and keep Musc Ravageur from stalking all but the most exclusive night clubs. The notoriety of Musc Ravageur is also a bit undeserved, as it’s not the horniest animal in the woods, with stuff like Kiehl’s Original Musk (1963) or Serge Lutens Muscs Koublaï Khän (1998) flogging it senseless in the virility department, for those who care about such things.
>>17639722>>17639727It’s probably for the best that only the “upward mobility” segment would dare drop cash for this, because I can see Musc Ravageur becoming suffocating in the way Jovan Musk for Men (1973) used to be due to it’s former ubiquity in social settings. Malle making this a pricey rare bird ensures that instead, Musc Ravageur is always a pleasant, if provocative surprise when encountered in the wild. Technically speaking, Musc Ravageur is an oriental, and not a musk, since it contains none, but the immense impression of musk it leaves is far better than most things containing the actual molecule. Lavender and bergamot are very expectantly the top here, but in moments they give way to a huge clove and cinnamon tandem that is the heart and shapes the rest of the experience. If you don’t like either of these in abundance, then Musc Ravageur is not for you. Heaps of vanilla and tonka in the base do the rest to shape the “musk” accord of Musc Ravageur, flanked by woods like cedar and sandal which dry it up just enough to keep it from smelling like dessert, which it almost does anyway. Gaiac wood and linalool add the final touch of woodsy floral spiciness which “browns out” the dry down of Musc Ravageur to an aura of thick bakery spice and sweat combined with an aromatic untreated wood finish. Sillage and projection are on levels you’d need Neil DeGrasse Tyson to figure out, and longevity is “until you wash it off” levels of good. I’m saying all this from just 2 sprays, so if nothing else, Musc Ravageur may actually be worth it’s price just for sheer performance, and a 100ml/3.4oz bottle of this should provide a lifetime of bakery meets jock strap next to a lumber yard ambiance.
>>17639722>>17639727>>17639729I like Musc Ravageur, but similar to most scents in this category, I don’t see myself aligning with the Type-A personality and blunt intent needed to enjoy what this offers more than once or twice a year, meaning that for me, this isn’t a full bottle purchase. I do give this a thumbs-up as one of the better musks in the game (even if it doesn’t contain a musk molecule), and certainly one of the few Frédéric Malle releases that doesn’t feel like an outright fleecing for its price tag, since performance is even greater than what the usually-impressive Creed ambergris bases offer (for comparison), with a drydown of spice-laden vanilla and tonka that never ends. Penhaligon’s Endymion (2003) would offer a lighter, more manageable version of this experience, with much less projection and a more finite lifespan, at less than half the cost to boot, so if you feel Musc Ravageur is a bit too much, then that is the route to take. As for everyone else, if you’re looking for a high-end, over-the-top sweaty oriental cream chowder parading around as a funky musk, this is the dog that’ll hunt, just be kind with your sprays, as a little goes a very long way. Keep this one to winter time and do not torture your coworkers by showing up to the office smelling like a musky husky pretty please, although if you work outside, I guess it’s okay to wear, I just definitely see this as a fragrance meant to help you “score”. Some say original 2000 vintage is even stronger than the better-mannered new production I’m smelling, and that’s a legend I frankly don’t want to test. Hats off to Maurice Roucel, you got us real good with this one, and you would have gotten away with it too, if it weren’t for those meddling kids and their dog. Thumbs up.
>>17639730tl dr pls
>>17639733it's a good scent with very good performance and is animalic but not to the point that it will disgust people. don't overspray it though
>>17639725I have just full bottled Poudre Impériale Sous le Manteau and it is an incense of my dreams, with an amazing performance and a slight chrysanthemum impression if sprayed on clothes. Slightly scared of sperging into one scent profile only to end up mostly wearing one frag out of the bunch. Any non catholic/orthodox incense? I really like Tam Dao which is giving a lot of people impression of a Buddhist temple.
>>17639739For me it's zero animalic. It's almost a gourmand
>>17639757>>17639730>sweaty >funkyFor me it is on the same level of clean as grand soir mfk, but I am not very sensitive to many solo musks like L'orpheline or Glossier You.
>>17639757if i had a gf id test it out with her, a lot of reviews are like "this smels like sex"
>>17639774>>17639767I wish it could feel animalic to me, that would make it more appealing. It is indeed sexy , but mostly because it's sweet , warm and spicyGreat quality , like most malle, but if you are expecting something animalic, your are set for dissapointment imo.
>>17639493It performs well on both desu, even if I spray it on my skin I can easily smell it after a half day
>>17639790i see, shame, guess ill have to get myself some bull testostorone extract to have a literal sex scent
>>17639809Try to get a decant from secret du Marais if you are in Europe, and find out
>never tried Bacara Rouge before>I'll be fine>did 3 spraysOverconfidence is a slow and insidious killer. I don't think I will make it, guys, everything is a salty caramel to me now.
>>17639829That frag is diabetes in a bottle.
>>17639829i ampraying for you brother>>17639828>secret du Maraishmmm

>>17639884you are high price, beautiful now go get momma some $
Could I get some tropical frag recs? Fresh and creamy, for example with notes like watermelon, coconut or other fruits + woods and/or watery notes
>>17639909I like Un Jardin sur le nil for a green mango scent
Please recommend some aromatic, woody fragrances (with the emphasis on aromatic). I tested Cowboy Grass today and it's great but with terrible performance.
>>17639916Forgot to add - preferably without citrus notes
>>17639718>This. I feel like going from 6 to 7 on kinsey scaleReparative therapy is a thing. If you are motivated enough, you could successfully change your sexual orientation. Look for it.
>>17639718>Thoughts on picrel?zzz
>>17639718Test Loewe 7 if you can. Much subtle Catholic vibes and far more wearable.
>>17639909JPG le beau
>>17639909Unironically Kenzo EDT IntenseIt has fig, sandalwood, and calypsone (aquatic watermelon note)
>>17639578I'm about to try and 3d print my own holder
>>17639909Fusion d'Issey Extrême
>>17639913Is this one of those 10 minutes of projection and 1 hour of a skin scent into nothing frags? How do you guys enjoy it without respraying every 20 minutes? My skin melts most things from long lasting/eternal category in 2-4 hours into skin scents, so these light fragrances last fucking seconds. >>17639934>subtle>more wearableThese are bad things though.
any introvert fragrances
>>17640052>Is this one of those 10 minutes of projection and 1 hour of a skin scent into nothing fragsno, it has decent longevity for a freshie. it's the Eau series from Hermes that's really brief
>>17640071m8 wrong board
Okay so if you are on the fence of buying rasasi hawasDont buy itBatches from 2023 dont last at all....
This lil’nigga right here is literally the encapsulation of summer evenings / nights
>>17640276None of your concern goyim
>>17640279your picture quality isnt great, fuck face
>>17640280if only the image had enough clues...
>>17640281how many "no2" do you think there are
>>17640276It's Tauer 2.>>17640274I disagree.
>>17640274yes, along with ACDD and Sundowner (all excellent frags btw)
>>17640283are you blind or retarded? the bottle literally says Tauer
>>17640318im done with you
>>17640318just leave him alone, he is obviously blind AND retarded...
Yo leave my boy anon the fuck alone or I'll get involved too and you don't want that trust me.
>>17639642>look up qaeed al fursan on fragrantica>similar to paco rabanne black xs>probably similar to the hyped aventus "clone" afnan not only intense>"there's pineapple in there, must be Aventus"Kek, it most def not smell like Aventus, why compare it with Aventus? Like the "professional" Youtubers that claim that CdNIM or Not only Intense smell close to Aventus. Not even close, no competition.>>17639632It's her "the women next door" aesthetic that makes me run over heels for her getting her pregnant.In my experience that type of girl are open for every sex practice.

Greetings, esteemed fragrance connoisseurs. I am in search of olfactory compositions possessing exceptional potency that can saturate an entire room with their scent. Although I have obtained a diminutive sample of Sauvage elixir, its ubiquity amongst common individuals has caused me to seek alternative options. Despite perusing various virtual marketplaces my research of fragrances has mainly shown me those who haven’t appeared to align with my preferences. As a novice in the realm of perfumery, I would greatly appreciate any guidance or recommendations you may offer. Thank you kindly in advance.
>>17640375kouros + antaeus 10 sprays eachyou can thank me later
>>17640387I hold no desire to administer more than a limited number of sprays to attain the desired effect. Procuring a pair of fragrances and dispensing ten applications of each appears excessive. I seek a composition of such strength that only a meager amount of spritzes will suffice to endure the entirety of the day, and envelop me in a conspicuous olfactory aura.
Hawas Batch Feb. 2023, i'm either noseblind or it literally lasts only 2h
>>17640274>№ 02 - L'Air du Désert Marocain
>>17640404I've never tried it but there is a good chance you are noseblind it happens easily if you spray it on yourself.Could also need to macerate because a lot of those middle eastern fragrances are not aged like mainstream ones are.
>>17640419Dunno, sprayed it on a piece of kitchen paper 2h ago and i can barely smell it on there tooHmm does maceration actually work?I'll try to spray it on tomorrow on something in a aroom i'm not in often and smell every couple hours or so
>>17640375Jovoy Psychedelique is very potent and also a very good scent
>>17640448I must, with the utmost conviction, reject the proposal to employ Joop as my olfactory signature, for it does not conform to the strict standards of opulence that I hold dear. To be sure, the mere thought of donning such a fragrance is anathema to me, as it is likely to evoke a malodorous odor that is unworthy of my refined sensibilities. Nay, my olfactory aspirations are of a much loftier nature, for I seek to exude a scent that is not only potent enough to overpower my surroundings, but that also exudes an alluring and captivating aroma, one that is sure to enrapture all those in my vicinity and leave a lasting impression. Indeed, my quest for the perfect fragrance is a pursuit of the very embodiment of the sublime, a standard that can only be attained through a perfume that adheres to the highest echelons of olfactory excellence.As I embark on my quest, I am reminded of the immortal words of Shakespeare, who famously wrote, "What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet." And yet, names do matter, for they carry with them a certain cachet, a certain je ne sais quoi, that can elevate a fragrance from mere scent to an embodiment of one's very essence. It is with this in mind that I approach my search, with an unwavering commitment to finding a perfume that is not only fragrant but also embodies the very essence of my being. my pursuit of the perfect fragrance is a noble endeavor, one that requires nothing less than the utmost attention to detail and an unwavering commitment to excellence. It is only through such a commitment that I can hope to exude a scent that is worthy of my refined tastes and elevated position, a scent that is sure to captivate and enchant all those within my sphere of influence.

Just came in my wives pussy and having now a cozy saturday evening. What fragrance for this situation?
>>17640536kenzo homme edt
My collection so far
>>17640682yooo this collection is brazyyyyy
>>17637704where can i buy kouros bros? the prices on ebay seem too good to be true, and it seems to be discontinued.
best frags with real ambergris? I want that eau de whale poo
>>17638451hey retard nice copy paste but people can't tell if a fragrance has " a richer and more complex scent profile" from looking at a picture of the bottle, and that description isn't a catch all anyways.
24 Missouri, I don't know a whole lot about scents but looking to up my game. I really like Graphite from B&B in terms of scent so I am looking for a good hanging out with friends on the weekends kind of cologne. Any help is appreciated Bonus points for a good daily scent as well
>>17640682hows ravageur anon? where/when do you wear it
On Parfumo you literally can see 2 types of user. The old passioned community user who sell they used frag for a good low price, because of passion without trying to make money.And the braindead hypebeast, fakery, rude(because they think it's cool), money making mentally user. They selling they fragrance like Aventus for 850 bucks. If i would be admin i would ban such user.
>>17640930>schreibt mir nicht um mich zu bequatschen What a fag this guy.selling old aventus for 850, like an ape. And then he complains about people messaging him.By the way what is the site you utilize to buy the frags ?
>>17640716It's still available in europe and elsewhere, just america has some stocking issues. I think you can just go for one of the ebay offers, it's a pretty cheap frag to begin with and a lot of people blind buy theirs and then want to get rid of it when they discover it's nothing like their favorite dior sauvage
>>17640886You're at the point where it would be the easiest to just visit a store and sniff their selection. They have paper strips where you can easily test a fragrance and if you think you like it you can test it on your skin. Should be possible to find 3-4 interesting fragrances that you can then spray onto your wrists/elbows and wear them for a while to see which one is your favorite. Try to find stuff from the various categories of the chart/flowchart or the nice cheapies pastebin, even though not all of them might be available everywhere.
>>17640052>subtle and wearable>badMy apologies for the confusion anon. I was speaking from my personal point of view: I am a person who goes out, has family and friends, and works with other people. In my case, I don't see the point in whoring for attenton
