>>17889186That‘s weird, I didn‘t order Chamade.
>>17889120Fantastic stuff, one of my favourites.
>>17889193Looks like a buttplug, hot
>>17889193Turns out it’s an empty bottle filled with neutral liquid as decoration and it‘s a gift by the seller, how nice.But what happened to my order? Maybe…
>>17889175Does antaeus have similar animalics to fahrenheit?
>>17889247nah, antaeus uses castoreum and beeswax. I would say it's dirtier and muskier than fahrenheit's gasoline leather
Does anyone have a good rec for a frag that does well with someone doing physical labor?I already own Y Eau Fraiche and was potentially looking to buy:- Terre d'Hermes Eau tres fraiche (if I can find it)- Prada Luna Rossa Eau Sport Eau De Toilette (white one)I have already sampled Encre Noire Sport Lalique which I plan on buying.Other samples I have include (yes i know they're memes):- GENTLE FLUIDITY- HACIVAT- GANYMEDE- BOIS IMPERIAL- ALLURE HOMME SPORT EAU EXTREME- ELYSIUMAny thoughts would be appreciated.
Bros, what are the go-to sites for sales around this time of the year? Whether black friday/cyber monday
>>17889319i'd go for a cheap freshy if the job makes you sweat a lot>>17889323how about you tell us where you live first? but since americans think they're the center of the world i assume you're american
I just sprayed fahrenheit on my wrist. Gets me everytime. You either love it or hate no in between
Why does drakkar noir remind me of sauvage elixir?
Best sexy, slutty masculine fragrances?
>>17889369Black Friday is primarily an American thing, silly anon. Of course I'm in the US.I also was planning to get Encre Noire for my F/W fragrance but if anyone has better recs I'm open to em. I like how woody/earthy it smells. Makes me think of a pine forest after a rainy day.

>>17889501>Black Friday is primarily an American thingproving my point that americans have no clue on whats going on outside their country
The Fragrance Apprentice has been hyping Bois Primitif, I fell for it and got a sample and it's actually really good I might get a bottle.

Which one is best? Spicebomb extreme, stronger with you or ambre narguile? or what's better? I need some ideas for Christmas presents
>>17889680eau des baux is like spicebomb extreme but better. slightly more christmasy too
>>17889636Alright the magnolia calmed way down after a while, ended up a pretty generic (and faint) woody-sweet base, almost dough-likeNot unpleasant but a bit disappointing
>>17889647Why are non-americans so insecure? This site (and the western world at large) revolves around American culture.
Anyone here tried this yet
>>17889383Your nose must be spoiled. Elixir is an overbearing sweet licorice, made in plasticy ambroxan, while Drakkar Noir is aromatic green, the smell of a damp mossy forest.
>>17889383drakkar noir was the sauvage of its day. soapy, unapologetically mass-appealing fragrance used to stink up every club and officeso it's not surprising that they borrowed a bit from that fragrance when making Elixir. it's definitely more spicy and sweet than drakkar though

Dior Sauvage Elixir is horrible, I have no idea why it is so popular. Le Male Elixir mogs it to oblivion

Which versions are preferred for Guerlain, the EdT or EdP? L'Homme Ideal, Heritage, Habit Rouge, L'Instant de Guerlain, etc.
>>17889807most people seem to prefer the EDTs for their greater note separationI think EDTs for their men's releases and EDPs for women's stuff is a safe bet
>>17889831EdP for Samsara is bad stuff and a noteworthy exception, it‘s pungent and unbearable.

>>17889853he's clearly a narcissist or something. possibly constantly drugged like Jeremy
>>17889854Jeremy's just high on life
>>17889840Something else. Reflection man is beautiful but the performance lacks. Either go for reflection 45 or lair dus alpes suisses
>>17889848This nigga hasn't said a single bad thing about all mainstream fragrances. And it seems like he is obsessed with Chanel
>>17889867He also loves pre-reformulation kouros. Make of that what you will...
>>17889255Do you think il like antaeus? I like fahrenheit
Why isn't guerlain more popular?
>>17889888they are quite popular for a brand that only does perfumes and beauty products. I guess LVMH pumps most of its fragrance marketing budget into Dior, but most women above 30 are aware of Guerlain
>>17889795No use coconut oil with baking soda

I spray my bedsheets with CDNIM to freshen them

its fucking GOATED i do not ccare what you say
>>17890348would be nice if it wasnt for the sloppy slop jpg dna. cheap trash.
sotd alien man thought its gonna be something as "Avant-garde and futuristic" as they say everywhere but its not? feels like generic woody, dark-ish scent, some pepper and a hint of sweet note.
Got a sample of essential parfums bois imperial. Just sprayed it on myself and i cant smell anything, there is just a faint fragrance. Is it me or did i get duped?
I'm torn between these two. I like the longevity of Blamage, but it would be nice if I had more fragrances that were apt for hot weather. I feel like CDG2 fits that need better than Blamage.

>>17890581i mean i can catch the silage when im moving around or whatever.
>>17890348Sweet synthetic cake. Pass. Althair smells better in the air
>>17890558>>17889840L'Air de Alpine is thin with mediocre projection but beautiful. It works in the spring and summer, but in the fall and winter either Reflection if you like the florals or Pegasus if you want the smooth sweetness.
>>17889848no way he is midwit
Pic related is so damn great it hurtsIt makes me want to buy three or four bottles of this shit
SOTD YataganHoly lord, I think I discover something new with it each time I wear it. And it's so fuckin good for fall.
>>17889135I went noseblind to this the other day. I used to think noseblind just meant that after a while you get used to a smell and stop noticing it, which happens all the time with lots of things. But I put this on and instantly I could barely smell it and what I could smell was bad. Later that same day I was near the shops and went to Chanel to give it a whiff and the same thing happened. I've refrained from putting aftershave on for few days now to try and return to normal, because I usually love this fragrance, there was nothing in it that I disliked.
Couldn't be fucked dropping ridiculous money on Tobacco Vanille and Layton so I copped Al Haramain clones of them.Will report how they smell, fragrantica shills love them.
>>17891233>clones of such a common designer DNAehh, could have just gotten Eau des Baux and had the superior version of Tobacco Vanille for like 40$ instead of taking the clone lottery
>>17891233Have you tried both? Of you did, prepare yourself for dissappointment.Better to get a 5-10ml decants of the real things that buying a cheap knock-off that doesn't give you the same experience and will last you for three lifetimes
>>17889856white linen cokecore
SOTD: 20+ sprays of grey flannelSomething I doubt the sissy hypno enthusiasts in this thread would know very much about...
I have those cheap 5ml travel bottles from aliexpress, where you pump the perfume through a port on the bottom. Layering is one thing, but I'm tempted to mix perfumes inside of them (EN and EN A'L Extreme - I'd like more vetiver in my Extreme). Has anyone tried that, does it fuck up the smell?
Friendsgiving tomorrow I (30, male) have some samples and I want to wear one What suits the occasion better?>Jazz Club>CDG 2>Gentle Fluidity Silver
recommendations for someone who doesn't know what he's even looking for in a frag anymore?
>>17891510all doable imo, i'd make my choice like this (based on mood/friends/etc.):>Jazz Clubwarm, comfy>CDG 2abstract, artsy>Gentle Fluidity Silvercool, conservative

What is the best citrus fragrance?
>>17891567its like asking whats the best car
>>17891567>>17891601What the second Anon said. It’s certainly not the heaviest on citrus, but my mind always defaults to TdH EdT when I think citrus.
>>17891567The one with the fruit inside
Weird experience today. Been trying out more designer stuff recently just to try and broaden my experience, and grabbed a bunch of free samples from a local Macy’s. Among them was Azzaro’s The Most Wanted Parfum, which I’m testing today. Reason it’s weird, the top is a generic sweet smell, some people prob describe it as synthetic, eh whatever, but the drydown / heart of it has the EXACT same scent as the heart / drydown of Mousse Illuminee, which I love. It’s this kind of smoky, grape-y scent. If the listed notes can be believed, there’s nothing similar between the two, but I swear it’s the same.
Going to shop for a frag tomorrow, give me a list of actually decent designer options I can try out
>>17891601>>17891564Yes, but the best citrus fragrance is riviera verbena by nicolai
Ok. So, Im at notino.pl I want to buy the most basic fragrance that is not utter shit. I dont really wanna spend time on this, however Im willing to shell money on getting some smell that will at least stick for more than 5 minutes after I apply it on myself. Its black friday, what do I pick
>>17891701fuck, are you literally me?
>>17891745new york intense if they have itunironically sauvage elixir if they don't
>>17891745ysl kouros is a popular and all around well liked scent, can't go wrong with it
I wear Polo Green exclusively and all year. I'm pretty content with this. I don't know a lot about fragrances. Do I have any real reason to change?
>>17891745>notino.plSomething with lots of castoreum
>>17891939No, if you like it. Wear what you like.
What should I get next?
>>17892006Forgot pic of collection. Not looking to spend much
>>17891377Good taste mate, it's also my scent of the day. I'm in love with that powdery violet leaf.
Anyone else here also started to categorize their fragrances into "can be sprayed on clothes"/"spray only on skin"?
>>17892010More Arabs than in Berlin
>>17891810>unironically sauvage elixir if they don'tlmao literally why I posted. I got a sample, and stank for 2 days straight with it

>>17892019not really categorize but noticed my narciso rodriguez bleu noir edt has a nice and long musky drydown on clothes
>>17892010Damn, that’s fucked up anon. How did you end up like that?
>>17892010Yeah mate I'll get a kebab meat on chips with chili sauce and can I get a few of those little peppers too cheers
>>17892083I ate a Döner Teller today, was great dude
>>17892086They should make a perfume that makes you smell like a kebab. Eau du Bossman
>>17892090im sure you will smell like one after you make them for 12 hours a day
>>17892033i was in berlin some months ago and honestly the density of arabs there is lower than in the big cities in NRW. wild times we live in.on a related note, i highly recommend mekkanische rose in berlin. it was created by 2 brothers in 1982 and has been around ever since, only one of them is alive now. i was truly surprised by the quality of their scents, expecting generic arab dnas like swiss arabian (their non-dupe offerings). but to my surprise, the scents were really unique and has a high level throughout all scents, that was the most surprising to me. usually i like 1 or 2 scents from a fragrance house, but here everything was incredibly refined. a lot of their fragrances have an oriental touch, but not like what most people today would expect. this comes partly from their white florals and primarily jasmine, which was probably the most well done jasmine i've ever smelled. prices run from 0.5-1.5€ for their edt/edp. they sell their stuff online but their website is outdated, if anyone really cares enough i can take pics of their current catalogue. really an outstanding house imo
>>17891745encre noire sport or versace blue jeans
>>17892159Agree, you hear always people say that Berlin is full with muslims and migrants.I visited Frankfurt some time and was in shock how migrant filled it was, drug addicts in every corner. In the train there were 1 or 2 white people, all other browns or blacks. You know, something you would expect in Paris.As a Berliner i can tell you that Berlin due to it's history has some kind of eastern european vibes. Got some brutalism architecture and the winters are grey, foggy, rainy. Germans are by nature cold and somwhat snotty. Salaries are the worst compared in other cities in Germany(east germans get paid less). You see alot of foreigners getting a winter depression in Berlin.If you're not a german born or a nordic type it's nothing for you.
>>17889841mancera red tobacco is a real punch in the face. extremely powerful
>gets brutally mogged and sexless with his floor cleaner
>>17892325Is she unironically gay? I've got a hunch that she might be. Not that it matters of course
I miss it so much bros. Any alternatives?
>>17892334Yes, Green Irish Tweed
>>17892335I have a decant of git and it's sharper than I'd like. Irish spring doesn't make this like anymore. It was such a good scent. Creamy but so crisp
>>17892329Yes, she is. She has a girlfriend.
>>17892006>>17892010I see you are into Arab frags. Try Oud 24 Hours and Oud Mood
>>17892010Can you state if Amber Oud Bleu Exclusif is any good?
It camePleasantly surprised, I was a bit worried because grapefruit and tobacco often ruins fragrances on my skin but I'm pretty happy with it. I almost get melon more than citrus, but I'm sure that's just me.
>Opening smells god tier>Drydown smells badWhats the name of that frag?
>why yes, we are wearing Al Rehab Dakar, Fahrenheit, Cool Water and Aramis New West
Looking for something wistful and sombre, nothing sex.
>>17892528>snuffWTF is that?
>>17892051be more precise, what price class are you looking for? What is it supposed to smell like?
>>17892277Yeah, Frankfurt is really bad, it‘s the druggy capital nowadays.I always get winter depression in Germany. But autumn is actually worse than winter, it really fucks me up and I always get ill too.
>>17892680Are you a native german? I love the darker days in autumn and winter, it's comfy.
>>17892277>If you're not a german born or a nordic type it's nothing for you.i respectfully disagreeeveryone from eastern european (big) cities should feel right at home in Berlin, the vibe is 100% the same (at least for me)
Is this a good unisex fragrance?
>>17889215Neat. Congrats. It’s a fantastic perfume.
>>17892528I have a sample of the previous batch. makes me think of something like Chanel Pour Monsieur, but heftier with more oakmoss, tobacco, stronger spice and quite a bit of deer musk
recommend me a frag that smells like a cheap gin tonic
>>17892717EP Mon Vetiver
>>17892718looks great thanks
So I ordered Ganymede directly from the Marc Antoine Barrois website and it came with a personalized hand-written note. Nice touch.
>>17892737Tauer does this too
>>17892683Yeah, native. I can‘t help it, I love warm weather, the sea and islands. Mountains and cold/rainy/snowy weather fucks me up. I feel like shit for 5 to 6 months every year, I think I should really get out of here.
>>17892705Thanks. Got it on ebay for 280€ and it is worth every cent. It may very well be the best perfume I ever smelled.
>>17892740Yeah ? The note made a direct reference to "taking a nice stroll in the botanical garden near my home and enjoying my new fragrance", meaning that the lady in charge of this made her research. I appreciated the extra step in customer service.
>>17892752it's jost a "stock" handwritten note, saying "enjoy", nothing too elaborate
>>17892616Crockett wears Jean Patou Pour Homme, pleb.
>>17891567The first 2 minutes you get from cutting open a fresh, ripe pomelo
>>17892035Only 2 days? Sounds like you needed 15 more sprays minimum
>>17889215Very nice, is that a vintage bottle?
>>17891919Second this, kouros is the goat
>>17892745Alot of natives wanna migrate away from Germany. Had a little small talk with a pensioner in a Postbank, while he was furious that his online banking didn't worked. Was a chill dude, was a little jealous that he was only in Germany for picking up money and gtfo again to Thailand, having his submissive Ladyboys all over the place.
>>17892800Well, Guerlain has been using the same flacon since 1905 until about 2002 when it was discontinued. Mine has a plastic cap instead of glass and the sticker at the bottom is transparent plastic, so it is among the last ever produced. Is it vintage by being more than 20 years old, but it is the least vintage out of all Après l‘Ondée extraits ever produced. If you‘re interested in the original formula, the Guerlain HQ in Paris has exhibits of some of its vintage fragrances in their original formula, Après l‘Ondée is among them.
>>17892820Yeah, Thailand is popular among retired boomers. If your pension is good you can live like a king there.
Got a sample of Musc Ravageur. Smells nice
>>17892886Frederic Malle seems high quality in general, but the price puts me off. The bottles also seem very cheap compared to their content.
>>17892676>be more precise, what price class are you looking for? What is it supposed to smell like?no idea. 100USD for a 100 ml would sound just right
>>17892897>Estée Lauder, formerly known as Editions de Parfums Frederic Malleftfy
>>17892901That‘s manageable. Guerlain has many affordable fragrances for girls/women in that price range in the Aqua Allegoria series. They‘re rather flowery/fruity though, so not that suited for autumn/winter. Ebay is a good place to pick up fully packaged Guerlains in that price range. I also just saw 75ml of Champs Elysees EdP for 105€, that‘s a bit above what you envisioned, but definitely worth it and really nice for woman.
>>17892906Oh, so they‘re basically the same as Tom Ford now, kek. I really dislike conglomerates buying up perfume manufacturers, the quality usually goes straight to shit.
I am buying it bros. I bought a mini bottle of 15ml and can't remember liking a fragrance more than this one. It is so fucking good
>>17892964looks generic, but you do you, i guess
>>17892919LVMH seems to keep the perfume quality good. the others though, yeah, they kind of suck. especially L'Oreal
>>17892977LVMH had Guerlain discontinue several extraits, reformulated a lot and shafted the different flacons of the EdPs/EdTs and put them all into one, with the exception of Shalimar, which also got a cheaper and simpler version of its original bottle. Yes, they‘re better than L‘Oreal, but still not great.
>>17892841As much as i like the doomer lifestyle in a gray and monotone european country, i probably gonna fuck off soon or later too. Need to save enough money for now.The miami vice lifestyle was always a dream for me, although it's prime is long gone probably.
>>17892325Wow, what a surprise - a social hoe recommends whatever goyslop is popular.People like her make me hate w*men.
>>17892684Disagree, Berlin's vibe is different from Prague, for example. Far less cozy and beautiful.
>>17893061Yeah, Florida is in bad shape and culture wars only seem to make it worse. As much as I like Miami Vice and the 80s aesthetics in general, I also have to accept these days are over.

>>17893800>wear fragrances to get complimentsObviously not, dear redditor. As said, I collect (and enjoy) fragrances. I'm just shocked how my cheapest bottle gets more attention than Diptyque or Tauer perfumes.
>>17892652You know, like snuff films. Gives it a sweet rot note, like decaying leaves.
>>17893798How many bottles did you get in the first ~6 months?
>>17893808Maybe because Zara fragrances are made to be liked and tauer and dyptique have other ambitionsIs not rocket science retard SOTD: Ormonde man
>>17893842Around 10 to 15 probably. Most of them classic safe designer frags and well tested before buy: Eau des Baux, The Dreamer, Polo OG, Zino, Caron PUH, TdH, Luna Rosa OG, Tabac, etcetera. I still love them all except Encre Noire (my first blind buy) and Le Male (great opening, but I can't stand the drydown anymore).After that I started buying sample packs from Diptyque, Le Labo, etc. Then decants and some expensive bottles from time to time. btw >SOTD M7
>>17893852>Zara fragrances are made to be likedIdk man. I get BdC or Prada L'Homme are made to be liked (and they smell fantastic even when I won't pay for them), but that Zara dupe smells like picrel soaked in honey...
Which fragrance do you want your funeral/corpse to smell like?
Love these lil niggas. I don't even need to buy full bottles anymore, I literally have a lifetime supply of frags from Macys and Bloomingdales through these freebies. By the time I finish a vial, I'm already bored of the scent anyways so it works out perfectly. I am free of the frag curse.
>>17889841>Azzarro pour hommeGet Azzarro wanted by night. Either version , just check the note breakdown and get whichever one you like better. Very clean wonderful frags that are very easy to use toward nighttime, and even in the day if you are cool enough.
Which one /fit/?
>>17893742He steals nipples?
>>17894194All 3 serve the same purpose: making you have sex. Just pick the one you like best
>>17894194y edp is screechy synthetic apple, skip.bdc parfum is good and the best of the bdc line.sauvage is okay but not the best of the sauvage line. not a fan of iso-e super, of which it has way more than bdc does, so i don't like the drydown that much.
>>17894135came to the same conclusion
>>17894142I wonder what this smells like. I'm sure the sales will not be as good when he gets BTFO'd in February
Why does something have to smell like vanilla cookie, caramel, capuccino or chocolate milkshake to be considered a date night fragrance? What went wrong?
>>17894288It doesn't, i prefer mossy fougeres for night out. Maybe some animalics added fougeres and fresher fougeres/chypre for the day.I always despise heavily sweet fragrance on males and women.
>>17894194bleu de chanel EDT if you want something more discrete and good for worksauvage elixir if you want a beastmode, attention-getting spicy fragrance. better for clubbing, parties etc.YSL Y just sucks, do not get it
>>17892010what do you think of lattafa asad, hows the performance? On what occasions do you wear it?
i did the blind buy it was a mistake, its wayy too mature for me.
>>17894450More cowardice. It's like these threads are having no improving effect at all.
>>17894470People here all wear the same shit and know nothing else, if they try something different they get spooked because it is not what they are used to. If something unknown gets posted it is ignored, the ones who posted it leave and the circlejerk continues.
Is Dior Homme Original only available on Dior's site?
>>17894450good fragrance, I thought about getting a bottle myself
>>17894494no, but it does have limited availabilityI kind of regret giving away my decant to a friend, I think I might like it more nowadays
>>17894194all 3 are great and you can't go wrong with any of them.personally i like Y the best, it's the first frag i ever got.
>>17894194Niggas gonna hate on Y because it's popular, much like Sauvage. Both are perfectly fine, and can be tested at literally any mall in the USA. The BdC line is generally regarded as more sophisticated, and thus more suitable for general purposes and office wear.
>>17894535We aspire to a little more than "fine" in these threads.
I already own bottles of: Grand Soir, Baraonda, Jubilation XXV, Red Tobacco, Oud Wood, By the Fireplace (early buy), Luna Rossa Carbon Black (early buy), Sauvage, Man in Black (early buy..want to sell this), Toy Boy, Hawas, D&G Light Blue.I'm going to go sample shopping during Black Friday sales, targeting luxurious and niche house frags. Here is what I am going to be looking for. What else should I add? Anything I should drop/replace? Thanks, Anon.
>>17894551kek i can tell at what point you stopped browsing reddit and entered this thread
>>17894551You would be better served by smelling some classics like the old Guerlains and some of Bernard chants work instead of jumping right in with the memes.
how important is smell? Is it even comparable with having a proper clothing/being lean? I assume good smell vs having proper hygiene but no fragrance, internet trolls notwithstanding
>>17894563Absolutely the least important thing (assuming you don't smell bad) when it comes to attracting women/making a good impression. This thread really isn't about that, it's supposed to be for connoisseurs and perfume enthusiasts, not people who merely want to "smell good".
>>17894551You have Kilian twice in your list, it upsets me
>>17894565>This thread really isn't about that, it's supposed to be for connoisseurs and perfume enthusiasts, not people who merely want to "smell good".Im probably a plebeian in that regard. However so many time Ive been hit with a nice smell (especially from women), I suppose it has to have some subconcious aspect to it
>>17894571I mean it's a nice to have but it's the last thing you should be worried about. If people like you they will enjoy your 20+ sprays of aromatics elixir which is absolutely what you and everyone else in this thread should be wearing on a daily basis.
>>17894563do you remember what purse the last woman you were on a date with was wearing? nodo you remember how she smelled? fuck yessotd tom ford noir, jesus this is more indian than indian perfumes
>>17894551drop the Azzaros, Montales, Kilians, Initios and Rojas
>>17894563not particularly important. it won't hurt to use something inoffensive though if you want your presence to make more of an impression
>>17894578Tom Ford Noir is pretty similar to Shalimar to my nose
>>17894563>>17894565>>17894571A good smell accentuates good looks and fashion, but it will not save bad looks/fashion. Personality either. Let me give you a -very- anecdotal example even though I know frag abhors the concept of wearing fragrances to get compliments. I’ve been testing out fragrance samples at work for the past… at least five months, if not longer. Usually two a week, each one either two or three days. In that time I don’t believe I’ve received a single unprompted compliment (I do have a couple people I get opinions from to gauge smell and sillage). Last weekend I bought a new pair of leather boots and have been breaking them in at work. This week I’ve had two different people, one man one woman, compliment me totally unprompted on my new boots. Moral of the story is, humans are visual creatures. It is by far our strongest, most acutely tuned, and most relied upon sense. While smell can have a strong attachment to memory and emotion, it will not outweigh the visual, if the visual is off putting.
>>17894194Sauvage and BDC. Y sucks dick
Thoughts on TF Noir?
how is habit rouge edt supposed to smell?>smell habit rouge at the store, like it>notice that there are tons of flankers and the testers are not necessarily next to the correct box>sample them all over the course of a few weeks>compare side to side>prefer edt, edp comes close but was a little too sweet>try edt from several stores even>always I get a bit of citrus, but the majority is a rosy soapy scent>finally decide to buy it>opening is a citrus bomb, totally unexpected, not like the testers at all>>17894768like it, but I prefer black orchid
>>17894779>black orchidA bit too sweet and heavy for me. Noir Extreme is amazing imo but it was too expensiveOverall is TF a good option if I want something a tad more refined than basic lower-priced designers but not niche territory either?
>>17894779>how is habit rouge edt supposed to smelldusty lemon candy beginning, rose soap drydownit evolves quite a bit
>>17894788>Overall is TF a good option if I want something a tad more refined than basic lower-priced designers but not niche territory eithernot really, most of them are a bit overpriced"refined" is difficult to define, but you could look at a brand like Hermes or Costume National for some designers that walk their own path and try to be more niche in their approach. Guerlain is also like this for the most part and has been at it for a long, long time
>>17894817By refined I mean classy and a bit more nuanced than "ambroxan bomb" or whatever.Hermes isn't really my thing, their frags tend to be too light, fruity and airy. I like "darker" frags if that makes sense
>>17894450I got the malaki incense one and it's really awesome but, despite what everyone seems to be saying on the web, its performance is bloody awful, at least imho, after about an hour it dries down to a barely noticeable skin scent. Which is a shame, as it's really close to what I am looking for
>>17894803alright, then it's exactly as it should be
>>17894779Testers are usually old and smell like a more "straight to the point" version of the fragrance. There's no more opening - heart - base development.
rec me a fragrance he would wear
>>17894950Ariana Grande cloud
>>17894563Extremely unimportant. Wear fragrances for yourself, not for others.
Ordered the Marc-Antoine Barrois Discovery Set. Extremely nauseating stuff with nuclear performance. Ganymede is spiciest thing I have ever smelled. Can't imagine why anyone would want to wear this stuff.
Do you see him wearing Chanel Platinum Egoiste or Drakkar Noir?
>>17895024his frag of choice is obviously Zyklon B
>>17895000Thanks that’s what I wear
>>17892569Invictus Aqua pre-2018, unironically. Fucking adored the Yuzu, but that shit gave me a headache with the synthetic dogshit drydown.
Noir Extreme/NE Parfum are so fucking good, holy shit, literally perfect. 10/10, Parfum will be my signature scent from now onNow I just need to find something just as good for summer, it's gonna be tough. Any suggestions?
Afternoon with some parfriends. Who else in this thread would like to join us?
>>17895181def not meeverything on this picture is just incredibly gay
>>17895024Nah, Grey Flannel. Drakkar Noir is a 80s thing.
>>17895024He would've loved to wear Zino, but for obvious reasons he couldn't, so he would've chosen the equally charming and comforting Tabac edc (plus the whole shaving line, of course).
>>17895181>alcohol>abanico>tattooed people>Bimba y Lola chav purse>Xiaomi Band yet ridiculous skinnyfat armsI would join just to ask how tacky low class people get into parfums.
>>17893902>Eau des Baux, The Dreamer, Polo OG, Zino, Caron PUH, TdH, Luna Rosa OG, TabacI wonder how someone can start this based>Diptyque, Le Laboand en up being a huge faggot
Any of you own/tested this?No way to test it where I live, but it catches my attention a lot. I love Polo og and Polo Cologne intense, among many oldfag scents, but I'm not sure about blindbuy a 120 £ bottle...
>>17895181where in Spain is this and why wasn't I invited?
>>17895024we've been over this before, he despised perfumes. he'd wear neither.
>>17895181The Shalimar extrait flacon tattoo combined with torn skinny jeans is a godawful look. And why do you have beer when testing perfume? The smell gets in the way. I bet the attendees are all blowhards trying to upstage each other.
Got some samples of stuff to buy my gf and am trying them on now. I'm generally warmer than her which will burn off the scent faster, but is there anything else I should be paying attention to for how it will turn out on someone else?
>>17895209>>17895268Could you be more of a jealous incel? A Jealcel?
>>17894288because people want to smell cozy stuff, not a fucking forest moss and a bunch of guano
>>17895269It’s not just body temperature and rate of evaporation, women’s skin is fairly different than men’s, and can change even more wildly depending on menstrual cycles. It’s not a guarantee the fragrance you end up picking for her will smell different on her skin, but it’s really something you need to consider as a possibility.Not to mention that fact that just because you like it doesn’t mean she will.
>>17895577I got eight samples and I'm going to cut that down to three or four that I send her, so hopefully at least one is to her liking. If not then no harm I suppose, samples are cheap. I suppose the main concern was whether there's some X factor I don't know of (do hormone cycles have an effect beyond temperature?) that would wildly change how the frag smells on someone else.
CDG 2. It’s “Shiny Happy People” the scent. It’s “Pleasantville”. It’s “American Beauty.” It’s the culmination of gen-x philosophy personified. It’s so dated it’s unintelligible. It’s more dated than Shalimar.
What are the 2 undisputed best summer fragrances on the planet and why are they Roja Elysium and Isola Blu?
Everyone say something nice about my favorite scent: Torino 22
>>17895713all of this is headcanon nonsense.
>>17895731>Rojakwab>>17895761>Torino 22lol jerkoff
>>17895713This incontrovertibly true and incredibly perceptive.
>>17895731>roja>give multiple free bottles to literally anyone on youtube>demand they shill your 400$+ frags to their audience>profittruly the best businessman of the fragcom
>>17895761Jerkoff is bad enough, but jerkoff as favourite scent is just depressing.
