For NYC there are quite a few good shops... I have been to Aedus many times and usually get rather standoffish service so I don't go there any more. I regularly check out MiN, Osswald which hasn't been mentioned yet, and then there are a few other places like Bergdorfs and Barneys that carry a lot of good stuff too. With Bergdorfs, not that you need to go to the womens store downstairs and Barneys has a newish facelift with several almost hidden rooms so walk around. But...
Tried it a while ago just on a spray card becuase I had heard of it. I think I got a sample from MiN a while back and will rummage around and see if I can find it. A few winners in the Montale lineup but it's like looking for a needle in a haystack.You saw my reply above right? As for similar to that one, nothing that comes to mind for me that's really quite close. TF Oud Fleur maybe but I don't personally like it much and I think it might lean more fem side.
I have, and own a decant of it. There are a ton of different ouds out there, but I think there are a few too that are quite different, not necessarily better, but different and worth trying. Creed's Royal Oud and AdP Colonia Oud. I think they're both examples of something a little 'different' from the category. Now I'm trying to think of a few others but drawing a blank. Hmm, even Tom Ford's Oud I find is rather warm and nutty and oily. Most of the new ones, like Polo...
Looks like a normal cuff. Second picture makes me think they're a bit short. j/k
I actually quite like their Supreme Oud scent believe it or not. Was just on eBay today scoping out minis
I found it quite pleasant and enjoyable. Nothing groundbreaking but simple and done well enough. I've got probably 100 retail bottles and 100+ decants, so as I'm winding down the hobby and culling the collection, this one didn't make the cut for me. It made it in originally when I was building, so it's a good enough scent in my opinion, but I figured eh I have so much other stuff at this point and only one or two per day I can wear so unless I love it, pass it along to...
Maybe they should change their slogan to "might as well have the best warranty"
I recently put that on my 'to buy' list. Even amongst the million ouds out there, this is one I've worn 3-4 times and really enjoyed. Given my collection size I'm going to grab one of those 10ml delux sample sprayers off eBay instead of the full bottle. But yeah, agreed, it's a solid oud!I recall there being a section of the drydown that reminded me of Oud Fleur from Ford. A sort of funky dry poopy musty floral component. Just a phase of the Paleo, but I remember mentally...
so I know very little about Tequila, but I'm looking to get something nice. I generally only drink my liquor straight or with water etc. I have some mixing stuff but if I can't drink it more or less straight then i don't want to drink it. So looking for a sipper tequila. Let's say under $150? I mean I'd rather start at $50-100. Currently drinking Corralejo Reposado and I like it enough to sip straight up. So what's sort of accessible in terms of style, price, and...
Don't say I never do nothing... I know this was from ages ago but I made a mental note to properly respond to it since you took the time to write it all out… This is basically just a run down of some of the major niche houses and the stuff I also personally like or know is often recommended so might be a good starting point…I think your approach makes sense to get a bit of everything in the beginning and feel out the field.For a sense of the ‘old’ way of doing perfumes,...
