>SOTD: Guerlain Vetivergood stuff, notino still has it for 72 EUR/100ml with regular 20% discounts, can see year-round use imo, office friendly, 30+, not a very sexy scent, performance is quite good
What are some male frags that are dark, sensual, mysterious, alluring and sexy, for a mid twenties guy?
>>17895966Why is it so shilled everywhere? Is it THAT good?
Sotd aventus absolu
>>17895980it's mediocre, people are just retarded. definitely not worth modern chanel prices either
>>17895979>Tauer ACDD>Nasomatto Pardon>Chanel Antaeus>>17895980it's an inoffensive but good quality frag from a well-known brand, but not too exciting and definitely overpriced
>>17895987Give me a good all around fragrance. No meme fragrances.
>>17895979I like Dior Homme Parfum myself. nice combination between sensual florals, sweet gourmand notes and smoky leather + a bit of a musky edge. really sexy, suave scent. do try before you buy though
>>17895979Armani code Profumo
>>17895995Gayest fragrance ever.
>>17895991I tried both ACDD and Antaeus. The former is very interesting but not sexy in the slightest. The latter is definitely dark and sensual but I wouldn't wear it as a 25 year old, it has a formal vibe to it.>>17895995I do like DHP yeah>>17895997Will try
I bought Y EDP but am disappointed. Probably the worst mainstream fragrance I've ever bought. It is incredibly mediocre. Good projection and longevity though
Here are my frags. Yeah I know it's a pleb tier "collection" but I'm just starting out. Eros is the one I like the least, it doesn't fit me imoBased on this what would you recommend I expand my collection with?
>>17896015Buy something that is not gay (like Kouros or Antaeus)>>17896005that leaves you with Pardon then
>>17896015encre noire or chergui if you want something sweeter
>>17895998>>17896015Buy something that is very gay like Le Male Elixir
>>17896049Meant to reply "Kek" to the Sauvage edit.
>>17896015Anon would you sell Eros ?
>>17896015maybe a more all rounder freshie like dior ohm cologne
>>17896029Chergui sounds cool, I'd like to explore sweet tobacco frags a bit more. Other options would be TV, eau des baux and jazz club maybe?>>17896063Sure but there's a bit more than half of it left. What country are you from?>>17896081Well I didn't like either DHS or DH2020 so I doubt I'd like the cologne
>>17896015Youth DewAromatics ElixirYataganCabochard/AramisQuorumMitsoukoJicky
>>17896084>Chergui sounds cool, I'd like to explore sweet tobacco frags a bit more. Other options would be TV, eau des baux and jazz club maybe?skip edb and jazz club (good tobacco frags are really pricy, cheap ones rely too much on either overcloying sweetness or have no lasting power)tv is good, other good choices are amouage royal tobacco, montabaco rio by ormonde, and fumerie turque
>>17895979narciso rodriguez bleu noir edt. edp is a little less masculine if you prefermugler alien man but its a bit too generic, dark woodsy peppertheres also CH bad boy cobalt which is not dark but kinda fits your description, a pleasing goyslop but still great desumaybe try tom fords ~noir stuffencre noire is not alluring nor sexy at all but fits the rest
>>17896101These mostly sound animalic right? I kinda like Noir but I find it really hard to wear because it has quite a vintage vibe so I'm not sure if I'd like other similar frags>>17896117EDB is recommended all the time here which is why I mentioned it and everyone seems to cream themselves over jazz club for some reason, but I'll keep your advice in mind. Thanks for the recs, I did try Montabaco intensivo by ormonde but found the tobacco too cold and kinda "ashy" if that makes sense? Very realistic but not my thing, I prefer rich and warm tobacco to literally cigarettes
>>17896128Liking the aforementioned fragrances is a non-negotiable part of posting in these threads so I suggest you buck your ideas and get to work.
>>17896128>EDB is recommended all the time here which is why I mentioned it and everyone seems to cream themselves over jazz club for some reason, but I'll keep your advice in mind.

Very realistic but not my thing, I prefer rich and warm tobacco to literally cigarettesthere's a lot of shilling going on in these threads but most people never smell the shit they recommendas for montabaco intensivo, ormonde has a couple of flankers with montabaco name, if you can get your hands on the rio one you should be pretty happy
>>17896135Yeah I figured. I tried some of the shit commonly recommended here and some are clearly memes
>>17895977This or Terre d'Hermes?
>>17895995Impossible to find.
>>17896164both if you like vetiver, TdH is citrus and Vetiver is green
>>17896128referring to >>17896101:don't know the first two>aramis, yatagan, quorummy grandpa had all of these. they are all rather unique, compared to most modern stuff. strong boozy opening. >mitsouku, jicky, cabochardthese are woman fragrances, but apparently they are so old-fashioned, that you could wear them as a man nowadays, too. haven't tried any of them
The only full bottles I have are fahrenheit and drakkar noir
>>17896171he just recommended him some garbage without even looking at his current collection, despicable human being
>>17896169Well, I like both. Currently my only vetiver frag is Original Vetiver (was a gift), but I'm running low. Does it make sense to own both? They'd cost 120 eurobucks combined.
>>17896176yes, i also have both
>>17896175Apologise immediately. His "collection", such that a couple of bottles can constitute a collection, wasn't worth looking at. >>17896171Of those Jicky is the easiest for men to wear in my opinion. Cabochard and aramis are very similar and had the same nose behind them.
Do you even need anything else?
>>17896203Club de nuit is incredibly crass perfumery so yes, you do.
>>17896203will be boring after a whileCDNIM is meh, but at least it's not Aventus
>>17896015we have similar tastes I think. try Jaipur Homme, Oud Malaki, Costume National Homme, Ambre Sultan
What more do you need?
>>17896164>>17896176I'd say they're different enough to own both. TdH is like the 30-40 year old slightly balding lawyer, Guerlain Vetiver is his full-on completely bald retired lawyer dadboth influential, notable and worth owning
>>17896101How to smell like a nursing home - the post
What is close to Cherugi but less powdery?
>>17896274You must go to some fancy nursing homes full of old people with great taste in perfume.
>>17896307Being discriminating and having taste isn't a crime. Posting awful arabslop, on the other hand, should be
They're bringing back Oud Minerale apparently?I heard a lot of good things about it, is it a solid spring/summer scent?
>>17896312Post top 5
>>17896341I heard that it would be a signature line fragrance now or something?I'll have to sniff it at some point
>>17896346YataganAromatics elixirShalimarTea roseBogue Mem
>>17896354I take the noselet back just because of bogue mem
>>17896365Yeah I thought that would impress you, you bozo. The rest are easily as good, but lack the nichelet appeal you so clearly need.
>>17896015Is my nose fucking retarded or do I smell a similarity between noir and NYI? what could that be, the castoreum?
YSL Bleu Electrique is the GOAT
>>17896400Yeah it's really good, but isn't the performance shit?
>>17896379If you have a thing for synthetic bugsprays or broken toys yes
this is very generic obviously but i kind of like it
>>17895966>120 £Blind buy or not?inb4: no way to test it beforehand
Has anyone tried Diptyque's L'Eau Papier? Smells very nice and unique and almost makes me want to buy a full bottle.
>The Dreamer, Polo, Zino, Caron PUH, TabacWhere to go from here?
>>17896354>Yatagan>Aromatics elixir>Shalimar>Tea rose>Bogue Mem
>>17896468Polo Supreme Oud was my first "oud" fagrance. After smelling the real shit, I can tell 9/10 they don't use real oud in fragrances like picrel or M7.Anyway, if you are curious, get it. 120 is not that expensive since it's a big bottle and it's not going to offend anyone (real oud can do, believe me).
>>17896487Show some respect to your perfumed betters.
Ever since I got a big bottle of pour un homme de Caron I haven’t felt the need to look at fragrance stuff it’s the perfect scent for me
>>17896502fuck outta here before i jam your mobility scooter and collect your pension
>>17896511Have they discontinued it? Impossible to find now and used to be cheap and easy to find.
what's your favourite fougere with anise?
>>17895992Guerlain L'Homme Ideal EDP
What are some flankers that have been made so wildly dissimilar from the original, they should have been their own frag? Designer, niche, goylsop, anything.
do you check ingredients for endocrine disruptors?
>>17896607BASED HDP POSTER LETDGOGOGOOOOO. I'll be getting Jules Verne sample soon, is it any good?
>>17896673If you live in the states ed from smelly water is the least of your worries
>>17896650Shalimar has some. Souffle de Parfum, Souffle de Lumiere, Souffle Intense, Parfum Initial. The more recent Millésime-flankers were more fitting.
>>17895992Creed Silver Mountain Water
>>17896171Jicky was made for men, but then marketed for women. Definitely wearable. Mitsouko has been used by Charlie Chaplin, who of course was an extraordinary fella, bit it‘s not that hard for a man to get away with.
SEERIOUSLY, does it get better than this
>>17896726it will when arabs mix up a clone that performs better
>>17896650gucci guilty absolute
>>17896726so this is it huh folksreally the best you can do?
I got Not a Perfume, Superdose last week, and I’m a big fan. Didn’t have any strong feelings about the regular Not a Perfume—skin musk scents usually aren’t musky enough for me, and it was one of those cases.I’d say it’s like a wet forest type of smell with strong balsam and amber notes; in some ways it is similar to Neandertal Dark, but has far fewer layers of complexity. It’s effective as a simple but dark/heavy fragrance, with very good longevity and sillage.
something about the powdery sandalwood vanilla drydown reminds me of butter cookies
>>17896687Can't say as I haven't tried it. Only tried 1725 and 1840 Marquis de Sade and love both of them.
>>17896760de Sade Is set for the near future too so I appreciate the reply
>>17896650Polo Cologne Intense
Are Antaeus and Bel Ami basically the same? For me only the opening is different
>>17896726I don't own it but honestly, of everything available at my local sephora I'd rank it #1
>>17896550I bought it from the Caron website shipping was like $35 to the states though
>>1789654833 chill guy. Like to exercise and read
>>17895998>nichetrannies seething from no milly while sauvage draws all the dimesKWAB
>>17896858That's the only place I can find it (EU), but it's twice the price it used to be.
>>17896208I just tossed my Club de nuit intense man blind buy in the trash a few days ago. I gave it months. Tried a bunch of times. Maybe I got a shitty batch. Nothing but a synthetic lemon opening then pure pine. Nothing else. Aventus clone? AYFKM? Great buy if you love pine.
>>17896861Post arm and currently reading book
Any frags out there that smell like rancid farts? Might get a bottle and discreetly spray it about a crowded mall for the lulz
>>17896916Club de Nuit Intense Man
>>17896861Perfect scent for you, now and in the years to come. Enjoy.

Question regarding the OP material. What does “W2C” stand for in “W2C bottles“?And second, how do the various discounter websites listed in the OP work? And I mean that in the sense of, how are they selling their materials so much cheaper than any given brick and mortar store, or from the company directly?-Someone- has to be losing money, don’t they?
>>17897115Judaism is the old covenant which ended when the son of God became the son of man and was sacrificed on the cross. If you believe in Him then then it doesn’t make sense to want to be jewish
>>17897325>W2CWhere to cop (lame zoomer speak) Discounters are buying perfume from other countries where it is sold for less and selling it to you for slightly more, which is still less than what you would pay at a big box store. It's called the grey market. I believe Ash goes over it at some point here. https://youtu.be/ofqcNpWlLUY?si=JMGf6SCnvP1nOAGE

>>17896673no i check my test
Is my nose broken? MB Explorer doesn't smell anything like current year Aventus nor any clones that claim to be based on the original Aventus
>>17897278>pure plant extractsInterested. Do you know any natural frag worth buying?>clothes-spray pillBased. Problem with this is when you use more than one fragrance: fabrics like wool end up smelling like a weird melange.
>>17897597>Interested. Do you know any natural frag worth buying?The only ones I know to make this claim are some local independent aromatherapy burner oil and soap makers that sometimes produce perfumes, and Henry Jacques, who sells mid frags for the price of a kidneyThere's also The Body Shop too, if you believe the marketing, but well, you know what they smell like
>>17897596>Muh Explorer smells like AventusThat's just poor people coping. If any 50 bucks fragrance was the same as Aventus, the real thing would't sell so much.Poor people are like that: this weekend my sister told me her Xiaomi gookphone camera and my Pixel 7 Pro camera are on par. I don't even bother arguing with ppl like that anymore.
>>17897602But the thing is that it smells absolutely nothing like Aventus, it doesn't even smell like it's in the same category How was this connection even drawn in the first place
>>17897597Lush perfumes might be what you are looking for. Several were very highly rated in the Turin guide (although, of course, you already know this because its required reading to post in this thread...)
>>17897596Similar with Club de Nuit Intense Man, doesn't smell like Aventis, but a poor pajeet attempt to glorify it as Aventus.
>>17897600>Henry Jacques>cheapest frag 600€ Wew. At that price point you can almost get into the real oud territory.>The Body ShopI think it's just marketing. Their crap smells far from natural. Loccitane has also "clean charter" products, but only frag in that category is picrel (I bought it as a family frag in a summer vacation and I hardly wear it)
>>17897611There's nothing "glorious" about Aventus, lets be honest here. Its an exceptionally crude composition sold with unethical marketing to some of the most boorish people on earth.
>>17897606>How was this connection even drawnSome retarded youtuber. There are plenty.>>17897610>required reading to post in this threadI'm bjj brown belt and I could choke you to dead if we met in real life, faggot.
>>17897613preach it brother. Too bad browns and homos will keep it afloat
>>17897597Yes, Alvarez Gomez. I think you can drink the stuff. Smells like lemon drops and herbs
>>17895966I hope you are storing your fragrances the right way anon
>>17897619>I think you can drink the stuffYou can't, and it smells like baby cologne.
>>17897620kek, totally safe and they won't spoil at all
>>17897617Well I'm a perfume blackbelt and you'd be turning gay and letting me make you cum hands free if you got within an inch of my body. So how about that partner?
>>17897620Your perfume should be secured safely away from troglodytic eastern europeans like this.
>>17897620lollmao eveneveryone knows that frags should be stored next to a heat source and opposite of a big bright window, but it's not bad
>>17897641oh shit, i just noticed the radiator right next to the shelf, the chemicals in the frags must have made me blind and stupid :( :(
>>17897620Just checked her insta. She is trying to look upper class. kek. Sadly (for her) you can tell she's just a poor polish tryhard.I don't get how people like these build such a big follow.

The average IQ in these threads is really diminishing.
>>17897612>real oud territoryThat's what they claim to use when I visited their boutique on a whim a while back, but all the shit I tried were really unremarkable, mild and boring Guerlain's Santal Royal and anything from the MFK a few doors down smelled more of oud than anything the attendant showed me that day. This company is fucking Extrait de Veblen Goods, I swear
>>17897652the unfortunate side effect of long-term exposure to toxic aroma chemicals

>>17897899Something along the lines sausage, luna rossa, blue slip mostly. Either that or full on sweet and sticky stinkbombs
>>17897907Would you hate me of I say I like Luna Rossa Ocean? Also thing with Pajeets and Arabs is that they wear perfumes like they are still living in their hot humid sandy shitholes. That's it smells like they dumped a whole bottle on their heads. I was in Dubai this summer and the weather was so shit that scents would wear off in minutes. I thought my skin chemistry was fucked from the Pajeet food but nope it was the weather.
>>17897917It's like 4 am here. I should sleep
I'm a perfumer that's made fragrances for a few niche brands. If I set up a new perfume brand specifically aimed at anons... would you buy one?

Thoughts on Ombre leather?
>>17898084not bad but a little one-note

Hey lads. I was told to come here from /o/. I'm trying to find a replacement for The Rouge by Bvlgari since they discontinued it. Every time I've gone shopping for it the ladies there always recommend some overly strong smelling shit that would make me smell like a Persian and I'm not keen on it so I defaulted to The Vert by Bvlgari but apparently they're discontinuing it as well. Does anyone have any recommendations that smell similar to The Rouge? I really liked the sort of almost autumnish scent it had.
>>17897938>would you buy one?Only if you guess Q's signature fragrance.

I'm at the bus and some fucking idiot sprayed Ferrari Black on himself and now I feel mogged. SOTD: Tuscan Leather
>>17897325>>17897339Honestly, the idea it could be “cop” crossed my mind, and I was just hoping it was something else. Oh well. Also, appreciate both the response and the link, very informative. Follow up question - Does that mean when buying discounter bottles there’s a pretty good chance your bottle will arrive and everything will be in… Polish, or Arabic, or w/e? I ask because, while if it were just for myself no problem, but if I’m looking to give one as a gift, I’d rather it not be in Kekistani.
>>17897597Abel, Ambre Blends, Floratropia, Hima Jomo, Prosody London, Voyages Imaginaires, and the one I’ve personal heard of - Hiram Green, are all supposed to be natural/sustainable, if that’s your jam.

>>17898112Tuscan Leather and Ombre Leather are peak sexcore frags. I own Oud Wood and Tuscan Leather and whenever I apply Tuscan Leather my dog goes ballistic and tries to hump me. Guess it's a matter of time until women do the same. Been thinking about buying Ombre Leather or Russian Leather by Memo. Thoughts anyone?
>>17898398Wow. Thanks a lot anon, buying as much samples as I can to try before Christmas.
Do I get a backup bottle? My first one is 70percent gone

Jazz Club is for Thanksgiving, By the Fireplace is for Christmas. Do you agree?
I can get either prada l'homme or DH2020 at a discounter. any suggestions? I think I'll enjoy either of them but I'm missing something I can wear literally everywhere at any time of the day so DH2020 seems to fit that bill better.

I got some samples from Tauer sometime ago and really liked Au Coeur du Désert and will proably get a bottle. But I wonder is there anything similair aut there? Also any other frag I should sample from him didnt really like the other stuff I got from him that much.
Bleu electrique is fucking amazingI think I tend to like frags like this and D&G the one for example, what scent profile is that? Warm spicy? what are the best in the genre?
>>17898204Bois Imperial is genuinely trendy where I live. it's like the local equivalent of BR540 or Aventus
>>17898289not really that similar, but Voyage d'Hermes is also a nice fragrance with green tea notes on the the lighter and classier side
>>17898360I feel like we haven't really gotten a decade-defining fragrance yetmaybe Sauvage Elixir?
>>17898971buy it, it's an excellent frag>>17898988probably yes (along with the rest of the Sauvage line)
>>17898385>Follow up question - Does that mean when buying discounter bottles there’s a pretty good chance your bottle will arrive and everything will be in… Polish, or Arabic, or w/e?nah, perfume packaging pretty much never uses local languages. discounter bottles are the same as what you would get at retail, there is no real reason not to buy them
>>17898613DH2020 is better IMO
what's the lowest price I can expect to pay for pic rel on black friday?it's at 159€ right now on notino (yuropoor obviously)will it get lower or should I buy it now?
>>17898991Yeah I definitely will but Im just wondering if thers anything similar out there or any more stuff I should sample from him
>>17898705You can't argue with this list. Also affordable.
>>17899002there was a 20% flash sale for everything a few weeks ago, you can probably get some discount applied to that price>>17899004i sampled most Tauer frags and it's objectively the best in his lineup (LADAS is my personal favorite but it's more divisive imo), i'm not aware of similar frags from him (apart from LDDM but it's also quite different desu) or from anyone else, so buy it (this is what i tried to convey with my previous post)>>17899005it's dated as fuck, also at least CW and DN are known to be reformulated to death
>>17898988>Sauvage ElixirToo curry for summer, imo. A decade-defining scent should be all weather.
>>17899007>dated as fuckshare your five
>>17899007Okay guess im just gonna buy it and ad some random samples then thanks anon
>>17898613I wear Prada L'Homme every day during the day, and for this purpose I think it's better than Dior Homme, love this shitit smells clean and inoffensivebut for afternoons or at night I would choose anything else over itDior Homme is too lipsticky for me, at least the Intense version I have at hand, not sure about the 2020 right now
>>17899007>there was a 20% flash sale for everything a few weeks ago, you can probably get some discount applied to that pricecan't find shit on Googlewhere do you guys get coupons?
>>17898529they're very different scents, both are good>>17899002historically lowest price i know of is 105€>>17899007>it's dated as fuckzoomer faggotalso LDDM>ACDD

>>17899038>needs more = needs more niche exploration but i'm getting there
>>17899022DH2020 got rid of the iris, hence no more lipstick
>>17899062DH2020 is basically a completely different fragrance. woody, iso E and cashmeran-heavy scent with some citrusPrada L'Homme is more lipsticky to me than the older Dior Hommes tbqh
>>17899022is it better than chanel allure hs eau extreme?
All fragrances I like - Aventus, YSL Bleu Electrique, Chanel Platinum Egoiste, Chanel AHSEE last 4 hours. When did it go so wrong?
> Got filtered by this tiktok meme substance.Literally smells like rotting fish at a market. I hate Italians so much it's unreal.
>>17898716Overly brown and homosexual list. Finish highschool first and buy a fragrance before posting this slop here and don't be ashamed of liking atm. I'm surprised you didn't include Prada lhommo and luna rossa
All Santal 33 clones go either in the greener direction (papyrus molecoulaire) or more powdery (commodity book) but I want something that's even more leathery. Is there anything like that?
Why does everyone love Oud Wood so much?
>>17899148What's not to like?
>>17899148Plebian tier mainstream taste. I only those serious who pull off scents Amouage Figment.
There's a fragrance that all these middle aged woman wear and it has this dirty animalicness to it which I really like. I've smelt it on a number of women that I come across through work and they all smell the a same. What is it?
Just cancelled my order for PdM Pegasus. I want a versatile winter scent that's a little sweet but not overly so. What should I get?
>>17899129When you didn't learn anything from this thread re: your taste, which is currently atrocious.
>>17898992Once again, response is much appreciated. It really does change the way you look at buying designer stuff. My mom mentioned offhand about having always wanted a bottle of Chanel No5, basically just as an internal brag, but it seems like after some brief searching (and reading one Reddit post) “Chanel keeps a pretty tight grip on their supply”.
>>17899151I don't know, what makes it better than other mass pleasing winter frags
>>17899165Boucheron Jaipur Homme
>>17899168Yes Chanel rarely appears on the grey market.
>>17899148Most people lack the nose to perceive that Tom ford makes incomplete perfumery.
>>17899168Very true, both supply and prices. Its very hard to find their frags besides Antaeus for less than +1€/ml even through unregistered dealers.
>>17899168yeah, it sucks. that's why I don't own a Chanel even though I quite like Egoiste and AntaeusLalique is the opposite of this, a brand that costs 100$ retail but sells for 20$ on the grey market
>>17899187It's something more mainstream because I smell it on several boomer women who probably arent into niche. It's like dirty woody, guess il never know unless I ask them
>>17899191Guerlain isn't niche.
>>17899165Literally Bois Imperial
>>17899176>>17899181Still useful to know, can shop appropriately during the BF deals this coming week. Unrelated question: With brands like Hermes or l'Occitane, would you consider them niche, designer, or somewhere in between? I have all I’ll need from Hermes, but I’ve been meaning to pick up a bottle or sample of Eau des Baux, and thus far I don’t think I’ve seen the brand as a whole on any niche or broad discounters (albeit, this was a very, very cursory search).
>>17899193Is the dirty wood I'm smelling oud? I still don't know what oud smells like
>>17899191maybe it's BR540?
>>17899195Neither of those are really niche in the traditional sense. Hermes is designer for sure, L'occitane is more like lush or body shop since they also make soaps cosmetics etc. Considering eau de baux is about 60 euros from the retailer it's not the sort of thing where there would be much of a discount market for it.
>>17897115Then read the New Testament. That's all you need if youre doubting.
>>17899196It's possible? Do you work with a lot of Arabs?>>17899198This or one of its clones like Ariana Grande cloud might be likely (although cloud wasn't very animalic when I last tried it).You could just try asking them.
>>17899198No i know br540. It's not sweet. It's like a musky wood
>>17897879Based Dylan Bluer. You can't go wrong with this and Explorer.
>>17897938Hello Quentin, of course we would buy your frag.
>>17899195Loccitane is by no means niche since it's sold in pharmacies besides their official stores where I live. Haven't tried any of their frags so I can't say anything else about them
>>17899194I already own Ganymede though
>>17899022> wear Prada L'Homme every day during the day, and for this purpose I think it's better than Dior Homme, love this shitBetter than Dior Homme Original?
Getting a sample of this, any anon willing to share experience with it? What am I in for?
>>17899218Don't trust him, Prada L'Homme is the most generic scents ever, more generic without any edge like even Dylan Blue or Bleu de Chanel.Dior Homme is by miles superior.
>>17898428Ombre leather > Tuscan Leather for me. Tuscan Leather is a little smokey and smells too much like cocaine for me to buy a full bottle. Ombre leather is mysterious and I want to breathe in forever when I put it on.
>>17899195L'occitane is a cosmetics / beauty store that also makes perfumes. Hermes is very much a designer house, just an independent one that tries to differentiate itself from the others and be more elitist. that's why their fragrances follow a clear house style instead of the more trend-focused approach of most designers nowadaysI personally think the whole niche vs designer distinction is silly and overvalues "niche" brands that make very mainstream perfumes for a mass audience, while undervaluing some designer houses
>>17899223yeah prada l'homme is like dior homme original but with all the good stuff replaced with powdery soaptoo bad, because I think the bottle is great
>>17898613Both are versatile unless it very hot. Very different and for homosexuals according to this board. Dior hommo is resinous woody and musky and Prada lhommo is soapy and clean. I liked Dior very much and worn it to university last autumn and winter. Imo Dior>Prada since its a more bearable version of homosexual because prada shills are one of the worst kinds of people you'll meet pretending like they know shit about smelly water
Why the fuck do people shill this, it's neither 'noir', nor 'extreme'. It just smells like a mid tier bittersweet liqueur, it's not even a particularly masculine scent. Talk about false advertising damn
>>17899199>>17899213>>17899235Gotcha, in hind sight I suppose my perception of “designer” scents is stuff you can find in a Macy’s, and being in the US Hermes and l’Occitane are not widely carried. Actually only one niche store I’ve seen carrying Hermes, and none carrying Occitane perfumes, so I mentally lump them in with niche.
>>17899246it's more of a woody scent with resins
>>17899250yeah Hermes in Europe can be found in every Sephora, so they are very much sold like a classic designer brand over here. tend to be slightly cheaper than Dior at discounters as well from what I've seen
>>17899260Yeah, you can find 50 ml of TdH for ~60 eurobucks.
with my pending order the number of Nicolai frags i own is getting up to eight (30ml) bottlesthey are so good, there is something in the catalogue for all occasions>inb4 Luca Turin hypeno, i found out about the house before reading his guides>inb4 paid shilli wish>SOTD: PdN L’eau miXte
>>17899263What are your favorites?
>>17899264what i have: NYI, Odalisque, Iris Medicis Intense (these are my current top top3), Amber Oud, L'eau miXte, Patchouli Intense, Riviera Verbena, Bois Bélize Intensei have samples for more, all of them at least good
>>17898988Unironically BR540 is what you mean
>>17899223Prada L'homme mogs DH every day of the week in compliments for me
>>17899262I actually bought my 100ml bottle of TdH for around 60 euro, though that was a year or two ago
>>17899171Not being another vanilla spicy tobacco amber powdery oud (ironically) is good enough in my book.
what am i in for? just blind bought because I love vanilla + benzoin.
>>17899458that's what you get. slightly boozy vanilla, benzoin and rose with an opening of pink pepper. it smells nice. very unisex
>>17899464nice, can’t wait. I’ve heard it’s masculine, but based on the note breakdown I figured it would be unisex. Thanks man.
>>17899263>L’eau miXteit is up there with my most loved mint frags, next to a menthe fraiche. shame the longevity is so low
>>17899458>>17899464exactly this plus a good dose of tangerine in the opening. It is a pleasant frag.
So do I cop Reflection Man for 230 or no?
>>17899508one of my all time favorites, absolute masterpiece if you are into floral/laundry style frags. Don’t know if it’s worth that price tag for me personally though due to longevity and projection, it is somewhat subtle after 2-3 hours.
>>17899511The one I smelled at the store was really strong and long lasting.
>>17899523may have just been my tester, I got a 2ml and it lasted about 5-6 hours for me until it turns into a skin scent. For the price, that is just not worth it to me personally but again it’s top 5 for me of all time. Absolute masterpiece of a fragrance.
>>17899458reading my notes about it, it says: only an old man (like myself) would wear this
>>17899554It’s a mature frag, but it’s also quite modern in comparison to typical “old man” frags. I’d say anyone 27+ can pull it off.
>>17899178You're a fucking idiot.
