Has anyone tried L'Homme Cologne Gingembre?
Seems like it's rated pretty highly on fragrantica for spring + summer.
But it looks like people also complain about it lasting a very short amount of time, as in 20-30 minutes max.

Is this a case of Great frag, poor performance?

Equipage Geranium, 2015

I suppose this is a review.

I wanted an modern equivalent of Eau Sauvage, i.e. something clean, civilised, and elegant. ES has been gutted in reformulations, and in any case it smells too powdery. I wanted a non-statement fragrance, a fragrance that says, "I just happen to smell civilised," as opposed to "I researched the classics and decided to wear something that was fashionable in the 1960s as a calculated gesture."

In short, I'm looking for the razor's edge balance between modern and classic. ES lags in modernity. It doesn't smell like something a gentleman would wear automatically; except among the elderly, it's become a gesture.

Equipage Geranium has the right pedigree and hits the right notes while avoiding the citrus and powder of Eau Sauvage. In fact, ES smells like high end 4711 compared to this.

Minimal citrus. The top is faintly similar to shaving gel, which I suppose is the geraniol element. But none of the sharpness. Zero powder. The overall impression is fairly seamless; it smells like a honeycomb, as opposed to honey; the faint sweetness of the geranium and spices combining with the warmth of the sandalwood. Some greenness and almost subliminal hints of mint, which is a thousand miles away from toothpaste mint; it smells like edible mint. I can't detect any patchouli, which is one of the reasons I avoided the original Equipage of 1970. There are absolutely no outdated or overdone notes; it all sort of congeals together seamlessly, like the smell of a honeycomb still attached to a living branch.

Club: No.
Date: It's very pleasant but won't make women swoon at five paces.
Work: this is impeccably tasteful and what I would want my doctor or lawyer to smell like, if I didn't want to hog it for myself.
Age: Probably not for university students unless you are very preppy.

Very nicely written review! We (or I at least) appreciate it a lot.

I haven't tried it but I do have a decant of vintage Equipage which I found and grabbed at a great price. Unfortunately I never took to it- too artificial smelling and even while being green the patchouli makes it uncomfortably dense to wear in a hot climate where I live.

Again, really appreciated the review. Do you have a basenotes account? I'd love to read more of your reviews.

Amouage Beach Hut. Has a bit of citrus, but then, almost everything has at least a little citrus in it, but it’s not citrus heavy. It’s like a subtly sweet, green, dry, woody, mint/vetiver scent. Give it a try, it’s really nice despite the somewhat goofy name.

I have one full bottle and a handful of decants I purchased a couple years ago. The bottle is a daily driver/all occasion for me. I'm always looking for decants/samples but it's a bit more expensive and hard to find stuff in Canada.

The large collections are cool to look at but go off into rich autist/neckbeard territory. I guess my end goal is a few bottles of stuff that's inexpensive but highly wearable that I can see myself using a lot of and a well-sized collection of interesting niche frags.

Alcoholic and boozy are not the same thing. Boozy connotes heavy, smooth, usually sweet notes. There can be alcoholnotes that are not that, like Kilian Straight to Heaven’s rum note. It has an alcohol note, but does not smell “boozy”. This is why the term exists.

Go to Ross or Marshals in your town. It's not rock bottom prices but it's usually at a markdown. They're probably bringing in summer frags which work better on younger guys. If it's blue and more than $15 you'll probably do okay. Maybe post a pick of what they have and ask what's the best value.

Not that user, but I actually don't buy full bottles. A majority of my collection are 10 to 15ml decants, unless I really really like the fragrance and think it's worth getting a full bottle.
15ml is enough to last you a good long while and it's a good alternative if the full bottle is something I can't afford. It's more than enough to go into my regular rotation for a few years at least. I think it's a smart way of doing things.

Fried_Sushi

at this point you should already know whether or not its worth your money. assuming youve already tried them, you should know whether or not you want to get a full bottle or a decant. if youre buying blind, no. its never worth buying blind if you are second guessing your finances.

those are commonly available fragrances too so just go to your local mall to try them.

Techpill
Techpill

As long as they’re stored properly (out of the light and in a cool place with a consistent temperature), not really. Some notes,particularly lighter notes like citrus might degrade slightly, but they should still be like 95% fine. There are a lot of people who collect vintage fragrances that are decades old.

Burnblaze
Burnblaze

Yeah, a lot of the time it doesn't make much different I suppose at this end of spring. Although it's about the point in the year where I stop wearing strong winter frags in case it's warm outside (or the air con at work is either too hot or cold, ended badly when it packed up on New Years Eve while I had Ultra Male on) and the projection gets unpleasant.

Spazyfool
Spazyfool

I collect vintage fragrances, and while their top notes may dissipate (just like the other user says), what is most likely to happen is that the perfume has time to macerate in the bottle, becoming smoother, and the alcohol often evaporates even in sealed bottles, making it more concentrated. So often what you find in really vintage fragrances (I'm talking about 7 years, not 1 year old etc) is they smell stronger and smoother- if they haven't turned at least.

how many sprays?
Pretty standard, 3 to 5 depending on strength of the fragrance and the occasion.
where
One in each armpit from ~6" and one on the chest from 12"-18". Inside of one or both elbows (close range) for any additional sprays.

I've learned that the armpit thing strikes a lot of people as weird, so I'll explain again before the spergout: the pits are an ideal place for perfume application. They're among the warmest places on the body, helping your fragrance to radiate assertively and continuously. Hair also holds scent longer than bare skin, and most of us don't shave our pits. And when wearing strong fragrances, having one or more layers of clothing between the perfume and those around you can help to moderate the sillage somewhat. You may not want to wear Aventus on your neck for a day at the office, but a light spray in each pit could work out just right.

I'm a super-hygienic, two showers per day kind of American, so I'm not trying to mask or hide any trace of body odor. Wash with deodorant (Dial) bar soap and use a quality unscented deodorant like the Crystal or Schmidt's.

Also which one of you was this

Neither. They're specifically formulated to appeal to the masses and possess no artistic integrity or quality. Both are generic, common and bland. I'll never understand why smelling like every other person is acceptable to most. Scent is a personal preference that shouldn't be dictated by the amount of compliments one receives, trends or hype. Plenty of unique and affordable niche fragrances exist, which will certainly make you stand out amongst the dizzying, toxic cloud of bleu and savauge at every bar in America.

that's not realistically a problem. The only other person in my office that wears perfume is an old Korean lady no one else wears it, and half the people don't even wear deodorant

The eau de parfum is sweeter and more amber-woody. It wears heavier and feels thicker. The eau de toilette has more grapefruit in the opening and more incense. Its base is comparatively dry. Both feel like Bleu. If you like either Bleu and can find Armaf Voyage Bleu for under $20 I highly recommend it as a blind cop. It splits the difference between both Bleus perfectly and can be worn / refreshed interchangeably.

Edt is lighter. A lot of the citrus notes come out in it, while in the edp I get a hint of sweetness and more vetiver and incense. Prefer the EdP but honestly I'm content with my aim high clone. Bleu is just too expensive when there's others id rather grab.

I picked up 4 bottles of it at my local Shoppers in Canada. 3 of them are 2014, 1 is 2012, don't know if that makes a difference. Still, great frag

Thanks. Pic related, a small part of my collection going strong for 3 years now.
I take great pleasure in curating a good collection; using decants means I'm much more flexible and can afford really good fragrances at a much lower price point than buying full bottles.

Someone answered a similar question before:
Become a trap and wear it. It's the only solution.

I decant them myself, from the tiny samples that are given out, to going directly to the salesperson and asking them if they could decant/spray right into the vials.

They will give you 10ml of niche stuff for free?

Samples pile up. Also I find that you have to be lucky with the right salesperson. Sometimes they're quite inflexible but I've had successes in most houses, even strict ones like Guerlain and Chanel. They respond to you more if you know what you're talking about and have a specific one in mind.
Niche is harder, but that being said, I've gotten big decants from Serge Lutens and Amouage even so I'm quite proud of that. The worst is Frederic Malle, those straight laced people.

It adds to the satisfaction knowing that I spent almost nothing on my collection and that it's a challenge to get them. If course if it's too much of a challenge I do sometimes give up and just buy decants off of members on basenotes etc lol

Serge Lutens L'Eau Froide is one of my favourite non-fruity mint frags. But you could always go with the classic and try Cool Water as well.
