fuck me, LAST THREAD HERE veekyforums.com/thread/11479173/fashion

For anyone looking for fragrance suggestions, give as much information as possible about what you want. Helpful info could include gender, price range, climate/season, need (work/clubbing/etc.), notes/families you like/dislike, and other perfumes you've tried and liked/disliked.

Anyone have experiences with this frag?

How close is it to Green Irish Tweed?

Also, could it be used year round?

DeathDog

this is going to sound completely lame, but is anyone aware of a fragrance with notes of marijuana?

i'm sure there's a company that has just completely recreated it with some tacky weed-leaf bottle, but i'm more interested in seeing what a complex perfume created around/ inspired by marijuana would smell like? not really even interested in wearing it, just more like curiosity.

i'm aware nasomatto has a scent that has notes of hashish, sort of like that i guess.

I mean, Day/night's fair if you're doing something in the evening. I'm not trying to entice anyone at work, just trying to smell acceptable. Inversely, I'd want to smell better than average if I were going to dinner/going out later that night.

Need a night summer Fragrance and a day spring fragrance.

Summer Night- Male-50-80 price range, something that's noticeable during a night at the bar with friends or a date, Acqua di Gio & Acqua di Gio Profumo do not work well on my skin

Spring day- something rainforest smelling. I want fresh and cool, but not drier sheet or too citrusy. Something I can just casually put on and go

I really liked it too, enjoyed wearing the sample I had and used it up pretty fast. Then I bought 50mL and wore that a few times, then I just kind of stopped. Couldn't really into it anymore. Somehow they made it just good enough to get you to buy a bottle.
A few months later I bought plain DH. That one is a masterpiece.

wine cabinet
If you mean a small refrigerator, some people do it on BN. I have some old and discontinued frags that are doing just fine in the medicine cabinet away from light and extreme heat, but that strikes me as total overkill. I suppose if I lived some place brutally hot, had no air conditioning and had lots of rare expensive bottles I wanted to keep around for decades, I'd consider it.

Actually, every single bottle of every single fragrance EVER has sat in the back of a hot truck or shipping container or room for untold days at some point in its life span. The stuff isn't plasma or insulin and doesn't need to be coddled on pillows in climate controlled litters carried by eunuchs. You just don't want to leave a bottle on a sunny windowsill or in a hot car in the summer for weeks or months or years. Jesus people.

I have the original scent. It's definitely pleasant, but have found its more feminine than masculine. It's comforting and has a clean smell so I do use it on days that I want to relax around the house.

It's also perfect at what it originally was used for, spraying on a handkerchief or scarf.

BunnyJinx
BunnyJinx

Yes. I bought samples from Surrender to chance. The samples I got smelled a lot more sweet and had a pleasant dry down. I bought the bottle from Beautyspin and it's just a lot harsher and doesn't smell as refined. The bottle also feels very light and I heard tom ford bottles have a good heft to them. I know people will defend beautyspin as legit, but something is off. Also the price was marked down about 45 dollars below retail, which is fishy because as far as I know Tom Ford likes it's exclusivity. I have doubts the source on where they got these are actually legit.

Welcome to the endless dance of "is it legit?" BN is full of threads about this. The ONLY way to be sure you are getting a legit bottle is to buy from an authorized retailer at retail price. And even then, people complain that it's not just like the last sample/bottle they smelled. Then you get in to the insanity of batch variations or even worse: reformulations. Batch variations is why Aventus ended up getting its own subforum because people got in to discussion after discussion of which batch smelled more smoky or fruity or had 30 minutes more longevity... And "did this frag get reformulated?" Then bottles of this particular vintage of a common fragrance start selling for more on eBay...

Bottom line: you'll never 100% know if the sample you got from StC was legit, or the bottle you got from BS, as neither is an authorized retailer. I'll tell you this, that both companies have been around for many years and if they HAD sold fakes, they would have been outed long ago by people more knowledgeable than you or I.

Ever been to a restaurant and had your favorite dish, and it didn't taste the same as you remember? That's because ingredient suppliers change, or their source crops or chemicals changed, etc. The only way of getting something that smelled exactly like that sample you got is to get a bottle of that BATCH of TL.

Welcome to the insanity of being a fumehead.

Lord_Tryzalot
Lord_Tryzalot

That wasn't me who flamed you, FYI. The sad bit is that on a chemical level, you are probably right that that time in the truck had SOME impact on SOME of the molecules, but it is highly doubtful that that impact is detectable by a human nose. Every time you take the butter or milk out of the fridge and expose it to higher temps and air it has a chemical impact. Do you notice it? No. Does it bother you? No. But now because you're spending insane amounts of money on something, you're worried about it. Again, this shit isn't highly unstable and needs to be coddled like nitroglycerin. Chemists made it to withstand the rigors of shipping. If they didn't the company would go out of business from endless returns. The changes happen over long periods of time. Just don't store your bottles in direct sunlight or extreme heat and you'll be fine.

And your question about temperature controlled packaging is a little crazy. Just saying... Again, if it was an issue, you better believe Creed or some other bigger high end house would offer "premium refrigerated shipping" as an option for people with more money than sense. Frankly, I'm kind of surprised they don't. Would be another way to separate fools from their money.

Spamalot

Forgot to mention: while I've never done it, I'm sure if you have legit concerns about something you bought from BS, they'd stand behind it. Contact them.

Also forgot to mention: check out La Yuqawam pH. I like it even better than TL and I've never heard anyone question if their bottle of LYpH was a fake.

Doing a little research. I have batch A75, july 2015 batch. Apparently this was a very bad batch coming from others online and in forums. So it's legit, but I still got screwed over. You think I have a case for a refund or I'm SOL.

Is it a waste of time and/or retarded to hit up macys/norstrom/sephora to sample some fragrances to get an idea of what i like/am looking for, or should i just order samples online like everyone else.

SOL, but hey these niche fragrances and their batches are all a crap shoot anyways. Imagine all the people who bought that batch when it was new and in store.

Carnalpleasure

after a while
Whether you mean hours or days, they would both be correct and the answer is . To address the hours bit, avoid application in proximity to nose, i.e. face and front of neck. For days, don't wear the same scent for days in a row.

I haven't been in a while though so I don't even remember what polo red smelled like. to be honest no matter what I use I don't notice the smell more than a couple minutes after I spray it, not sure if i'm doing it wrong or what

Sephora is my favorite place to get samples, the samples are free and the sales reps are super chill.

At Macy's and Nordstrom you could only spray on your skin or paper. The sales reps at those places seem to have higher pressure to sell for some reason, dunno if its commission or management.

Ordering samples online sucks cause you pay for it and wait for shipping. Online samples are only good for niche products. All your designer samples should could from Sephora since its free.

iluvmen
iluvmen

although our noses do get used to the scent and stop picking them up constantly after a while, you still get a waft of it every now and the. Make sure you're spraying on your skin, chest or either side of neck.

I don't recommend blind buying, so really try to go to sephora to sample both those. they're pretty safe and cheap though, just read reviews on fragrantica and see which one appeals to you most

lostmypassword
lostmypassword

thanks guys. yeah, really want to be able to take my time and not feel a) pressured to buy and b) not feel like i was wasting anyones time.

Skullbone
Skullbone

where do you recommend spraying specifically on the skin, how far away, how much, etc.?

Firespawn
Firespawn

I hear you. Unlike I have decent success at getting samples at Macy's & Nordstroms but I live in LA, so other places might have different policies. Plus, I come right out and tell the sales rep that I'm just sampling right now and won't buy anything I haven't worn several times, just to make sure we're on the same page and they can help paying customers no problem.

Now, at Sephora, you can walk right up to any sales rep and ask for three samples of anything, and some have TF and other higher end houses, and they'll make you a 1.5ml spray sample with a smile on their face. That is Sephora policy and they don't work on commission.

TechHater
TechHater

Does sephora have Bleu de Chanel edp samples?

AwesomeTucker
AwesomeTucker

Not that user, but spray anywhere except face and front of neck. Hair and clothing hold on to top notes longer and enhance projection. Under clothing mutes projection. Spray far enough away that most of it ends up on your skin (sprayer dependent). 2-5 sprays, fragrance, sprayer and situation dependent. Most 3-4 sprays. I do 1-2 on chest, 1 on nape of neck, 1-2 on forearms and rub to share if necessary.

FastChef
FastChef

They have a web site for you to check stock. Any bottle in store they can make a sample from.

whereismyname

so spray with clothes on? I always figured it was spray before you put your shirt on so it's not overwhelming

Stark_Naked
Stark_Naked

Read my post again.

Crazy_Nice
Crazy_Nice

well I did yeah, I'm referring specifically to the spray on the chest, obviously the ones for the back of the neck, and forearms aren't really issues but with my colognes personally at a certain point of how far away it is, the spray just disappears so I can't spray far enough that it'll mostly end up on my skin rather than the actual shirt

Harmless_Venom
Harmless_Venom

Yeah, you generally apply before you put your shirt on. The spray on the back of the neck gets a little in my hair for a little boost, but only when you really want more help would you spray on clothes. Careful, some frags stain some fabrics.

Stupidasole
Stupidasole

IMO it's way easier to sample in person if it's at least semi-convenient for you to get to a retailer. Especially a place like sephora where you don't hardly even have to deal with a sales associate. Best part is it's free (other than the cost of getting there) and usually you can take free samples of 2 or 3 to try them out at home. I get not wanting to have to deal with SAs and feeling pressured to buy, but nothing worse than ordering a bunch of samples (paying for them) waiting a week+ to get them and then hating every single one. But like a previous user said, if you're looking for niche then ordering online is probably your only option.

Nude_Bikergirl
Nude_Bikergirl

Yes, this is good advice. In any sales situation, it's best to stick to your guns and voice your goal to the sales person up front. Make sure you're very clear with the fact that your goal is to go home with several samples in order to decide which one you like best.

btw, this is probably dependent on location, but around holiday time, sephora SA told me that they limit their free samples to 3 per person.

Lunatick

thanks for the reply. i think i mostly need to get a sense of what general family i'm interested in wearing before i can narrow down what samples to order anyway. it's literally a walk across the street for me to get to a decent mall with all three of those stores, so there's really nothing stopping me but my own autismo.

haveahappyday
haveahappyday

walk in to Sephora
go to fragrance section and check out selection
wait for sales person to ask if I need help
OR
go up to a free one and ask (advanced mode)
make eye contact, smile and say "Hi! I'm interested in getting samples of X, Y and maybe Z."
(say names of frags you want, not letters)
they will say something like "Sure, my pleasure!"
possible small talk while they make samples if done near you:
"what are some of your favorites?"
"what would you say are the most popular scents here?"
that should keep them talking for the duration of the visit
receive samples
smile, make eye contact and say "Hey, thanks a lot!"
leave store

happy_sad

Yea that's why dept. store or sephora is the way to go. You have no idea what you like, so you can smell a bunch of mainstream hits all at once and start narrowing down. In my experience Sephora SAs (where I live) are typically young black women who dgaf about their job or anything that pertains to you. So don't sweat it too much. Department store SAs are a little more forward, as they're actively trying to get you to buy shit

I always assumed Fahrenheit was a cheapie type fragrance that wouldn't be that great, but I just tried a sample and I like it. I assume it's the reformulation.

Is the vintage version that much better than the reformulated version? Not sure if I should buy a new bottle or find a vintage one.

Carnalpleasure
Carnalpleasure

I own a first version vintage bottle and it's a little richer than the current, and the gasoline note is more pronounced, but when that runs out, I'll get a current bottle with no regrets. And Fahrenheit is a fucking great frag. I will never be without a bottle.

Finally it arrived. I tested them all on my limbs for a bit, just initial impressions as I haven't wore any for an extended time. Obviously the marketing gimmick here is that these are location based scents, complete with long & lat coordinates on the production bottles.

The Cape (as they describe, mint-ginger-moss) Starts very ginger, have you ever bought ginger soap? Very similar. It the brightest scent of the four, I'm interested to see how it mellows out but I don't believe it will be for me.

Sequoia (incense-cedarwood-sandalwood) I thought I'd hate this one the most because of the incense and I thought it would be overly woody. It actually starts fairly light with cedar and pine tones, incense notes take a backseat. Still on the fence, but optimistic.

Mojave (bergamot-safron-tobacco leaf) So much bergamot, bergamot and bergamot. Did I mention bergamot. Will there ever be any tobacco leaf? The world may never know. I feel like this is one that I will wear once and then toss.

Telluride (pepper, suede, tonka bean) This is the one I'm going to wear today and am currently wearing. This is the one I'm having the most difficulty with, no tonka but almost like spicy pine? I get where they are going with the suede, but not the suede I know.

I started out the most interested in Telluride, and kinda still am but now I'm looking forward to Sequoia. I'm already disappointed in Telluride's longevity, the website doesn't say, but the box says it's a parfum.

i'm here because a ysl l'homme advert arrived in the mail. haven't worn cologne since being a tryhard at 12. coasted on deodorant (old spice: fresh) that girls close to me complemented.

anyway. i cracked open the paper on the ysl ad and didn't really pay it much mind. gave it and l'intense a few sniffs, pleasant, i thought, but thought nothing more.

but then throughout the day i'd catch a whiff of something. and it was more than pleasant. it was mood altering. like i've spent my life seeking pleasure for my eyes and ears and brain and heart, but i'd completely forgotten about my nose. i kept picking up the sample and burying my nose in it. i couldn't help myself. must have done it a dozen times throughout the day.

so now i'm here, looking for scents for me. that will make me happy when i catch a whiff. that will transport me somewhere for a moment. i have no interest in invading others lives with unwanted scents. i just want a richer, fuller existence.

sorry for the blog. i don't know why i'm posting this.

Let's get some opinions going: Who's the best and worst YouTube fragrance reviewer?

I like Greggieboy a lot, although his channel activity has really fallen off. But he doesn't seem to fall into bullshit hyping, nor does he turn his nose up to mainstream stuff. I like Kristo a lot too, but he comes across as trying a bit too hard to be unique and go against the grain.

Least favorite is probably chad /white spirit bear / a gentlemans journey. he is just cringey as fuck to me. And his taste in fragrances kinda sucks

I like Redolessence as he seems really knowledgeable and probably knows more technical details about fragrance than any other youtube fragrance reviewer. He said that he spent years actually studying the craft.

I don't necessarily like Jeremy Fragrance, but I like how he goes around asking random girls or sometimes have girl guest on who give their opinions. I wish other reviewers did this format more.

Katie Puckrick Smells was also a good reviewer that goes really in depth, but she hasn't been active in about 2 years. She still has a bunch of reviews you can check out.

What fragrance do you think would fit me best?

Right now I use Tom Ford TL and Le Labo rose 31. I guess I'm looking for a rough dangerous "bad boy" fragrance.

are there classic fragrances that still hold up today without smelling like a) an old man, or b) dated in general?

what would those classics be? like the male version of chanel no. 5, i suppose, though not necessarily as iconic. (what else could possibly be as iconic)

Stupidasole

the original Acqua di Parma Colonia has been around since 1916 and doesn't smell "old" or old-fashioned

you can try browsing this list for some ideas, she seemed to have quit around #50 though

not the guy you're talking to, but i got laid most when i didn't care what i wore or what i smelled like, just did basic hygiene and wore jeans and shirts from the thrift store.

maybe clothes/cologne is useful in one night stands? i don't know, never had one of those. but from experience, at least with the kind of girls i've been with, it's been fairly unimportant.

Gigastrength

Such an annoying argument.

The vast majority of women want a man who looks good, takes cares of himself, is in shape, dresses nice, etc. etc. Now, you may have all of those factors going for you and still not get laid. You may be missing a few of those factors and will indeed still get laid.

Scent/fragrance is the same way. It's not like you spray on sauvage and suddenly women want to sleep with you. But think of it as a point in your favor.

oh look at that guy
he looks good, nice body +1
nice smile +1
his shoes are kind of gay -1
wow expensive watch +1
hairline is receding a little bit -1
wow, he smells amazing +1

No one thing is going to get women to sleep with you, it's the accumulation of attributes (I didn't get into personality, which is a completely different set of factors). Except money. Women will sleep with you if you have money.

Then they clearly liked you mostly due to your personality, not your basic hygiene and cheap shirts.

I don't own aventus. Can't bring myself to spend that much on a single bottle. Not broke, just a cheapskate.

And yea BDC is way underwhelming. It hasn't gotten me nearly the compliments that Sauvage gets me either. Turns into a skin scent after probably 90 minutes. Sauvage has amazing longevity on me and as a bonus, it sticks around on whatever clothing I was wearing. So if I'm rewearing a shirt or jacket, even days later, it will still smell of Sauvage's base notes

It reminds people of lipstick, but might not be exactly what lipstick smells like, probably because of the iris note and powdery accord.

There's plenty more going on in DH, but I can definitely perceive what reviewers describe as a "makeup-bag" or lipstick smell.

Anything iris-y or powdery will probably remind people of cosmetic products. I think when people are comparing it to lipstick, it's just because it's the easiest way for them to call to mind what they're smelling. Also, a lot of people just parrot what others have said.

That sounds low for L'Homme. Add a spray and ask people throughout the day if they can smell you within arm's reach. If not, next time add another. Avoid proximity to nose, i.e. face/front of neck to prevent olfactory fatigue, and your use of the word "towards" gives me pause. Make sure you hold the sprayer close enough that most of the juice is actually hitting your skin.

Enough that it lingers. You want people to notice you smell good.

Listen man, You want to get notice by cute girls? You want compliments? You want to stand out a little? Make sure people can smell your cologne and don't be afraid of "over spraying".

i know myself and at least one other user here love it

it's pretty much all mint in the beginning, but as it dries the geranium and star anise really start to shine. really fresh and classy, a modern take on the classic fougere a la L'Artisan Fou d'Absinthe, so you might think it's a little mature smelling (I certainly don't think so, though)

only cons i can say are that the mint could settle sooner and those who need monster longeavity and projection maybe disappointed

whereismyname
whereismyname

You're under-spraying. A fragrance like L'Homme is not going to choke anybody out or be too strong, so you can handle spraying on 5-6+ sprays. 1 Chest, 2 either side of neck, 2 each wrist, 1 bonus spray on chest area with shirt on is how I usually wear L'Homme. And I hate to break it to you, but L'Homme isn't a compliment monster. People will probably smell you and think you smell good, but it's not one of those that stops people in their tracks and forces them to say something (Sauvage for instance garners me this type of attention).

By the way, you need to start sampling fragrances at the retailer, and then going home and buying the one you want online for as much as 50% less. fragrancenet and beautyspin are my go-to.

One more thing. Don't spray this shit on your face, your facial skin is much more sensitive than the rest of your skin. Besides, you don't want it getting in your eyes / in your mouth, and with such close proximity to your nose you'll go nose-blind to it super quick.

The correct answer is: it depends on the occasion. Intimate evening with a date/gf/spouse? Wear a couple sprays of something gourmand/sexy. Going to the club and partying til 3am? 6+ sprays of a compliment beast like sauvage or spicebomb. Spending the day at the park, outdoors, at the beach? 3-4 sprays of a nice bright citrus-based frag. Work in an office/in close proximity to others indoors all day? Don't wear anything. Seriously, it's just rude to subject other people to be forced to smell your cologne for 8 hours a day.

L'Homme is definitely good, and a good choice for somebody who simply wants to smell good, and doesn't care about owning multiple frags for different occasions. It's a great all-weather, all-occasion fragrance imo. If you want to delve deeper into the fragrance realm, however, you might eventually find L'Homme to be a little bland (this is what happened to me). But even then, it's great for casual wear.

Why do you need a full review from Jeremy? His mentions of it in his other videos convey what he thinks of it: "hot weather, indoors, casual." Besides, his "reviews" are usually pretty lacking in comparison to other youtube reviewers. Where his channel shines is his "field studies" where he sees what women think of each fragrance.

Jeremy reviews:
hey guys whatsup jeremy here with wankeur pour homme. it smells of citrus and wood and musk. very nice, clean and manly smell, but also a bit generic. anyone could wear this. the girls ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT, however. check out this clip. projection and longeveity are decent. all in all a pleasant fragrance worth buying if you don't already have a safe everyday cologne that also get panties wet.
total runetime: 4:54

Other reviews:
hey guys
this is rick from dude cologne dudes
i'm here today to talk about wankeur pour homme
wankeur pour homme is the latest offering from wankeur
according to the wankeur website, the nodes are bergamot, grapefruit, vetiver, sandalwood, ambroxan and musk
it can be bought at department stores
it comes in 1 oz bottles, 2 oz bottles, and 3.4 oz bottles
it comes in this dark box with the wankeur logo
and here's the bottle. as you can see it's made from tinted glass and has a cap
i think wankeur pour homme smells like citrus, wood and musk
it's a very safe scent but also quite manly
the longeivity and projection are both average
it's very inoffensive and no one should mind you wearing this as long as you don't put on too much
reports on basenotes are that women love this fragrance
so who is this fragrance for? i think wankeur made this fragrance to be a real crowdpleaser and appeal to a very wide range of men. i could really see anybody from ages 15 and up wearing this, and at any occasion
alright. bye guys. see you next time

The newest batch of samples I got are pretty nice so far.

Atelier Orange Sanguine
Smells like an orange, fizzy drink. Sweet and orange but not nauseatingly candyish. Kind of reminds me of Fico di Amalfi but orange instead of fig and grapefruit.

Frapin L'Humaniste
Nice, sort of refined citrus scent. The notes and reviews online say that it smells like a gin fizz but I was getting a lemon/lime iced tea accord from it.

L'Artisan Passage d'Enfer
Light, soapy incense. I really like this one. Maybe it's the lily that makes it soapy and light, I'm not 100% sure what lily smells like. Might have to buy a bottle.

Fragrances made from houses in Dubai are just ways for ISIS and other terrorist groups to launder money.

Well you see, if you started saving when you were 15-21 you could have spending money by the time you're 25-30 and if you're old and haggard in your late 20s early 30s then you have more than monetary problems.

I'm living in the miserable summer heat/humidity of the southeast US, and on extremely hot days I feel like I'm flushing money down the drain by spraying on fragrance. Even frags that have decent longevity completely disappear within an hour or so. I'm saying I can press my nose against my arm and not smell a damn thing.

Any tried & true frags out there that stand strong through brutal summer heat?

Al Rehab's Silver pure perfume oil, it smells like Silver Mountain Water it lasts long, projects well and since its pure oil, its not going to to go away even if you sweat a lot

actually, when I go out running in the heat I sometimes use this and it lasts throughout my run and after the shower I take when I finish

We will need the following to answer your question: detailed pictures of your space. A blueprint or schematic. A list of every piece of furniture with dimensions of surface area and storage. A list of all your frags and bottle dimensions.

But seriously, what were you hoping to get as an answer here? Where do you put anything in your life?

you know that smell when it's winter and you can faintly smell the pine trees and a fire burning in the distance, is there any fragrance like that?

Gucci By Gucci Pour Homme reminds me of that. Although its longevity and projection is questionable.

I have a fragrance addictions. I'm just so caught up in finding the "perfect" scent for me and I just know that's an impossible feat. I've probably spent over 200 dollars JUST on samples in the past 2 months. I have enough cologne to last me the next 2 years, JUST on samples alone. But I'm just obsessed in collecting full bottles of the fragrances that I consider PERFECT for me. Fuck, I don't even go out that much either.

Need some help fellas.

How do I remove the spraying cap of a perfume bottle?
Specifically the fragrance is D&G The One

I'm trying to open it so I can fill my atomizer up.
When I'm twisting it it makes a clicking sound, and I don't want to force it.

Deadlyinx

I've also tried pulling it straight up but it seems pretty tight.

Ah, you mean you want to expose the tube so you can fill your Travalo? There are a few stupid sprayer designs that do not allow the sprayer to be removed. 99% of them pull off easily, but a couple had to be special...

You did good senpai, vintage is a great scent. Personally I wear it during the colder months. I get a mature vibe from this one. Classic and confident.
