Scent/Fragrance of the Day thread - Page 1043

post #15631 of 21229
two days in a row, SOTD Puredistance M. Gosh this stuff is potent, I used a few drops from the pipe instead of spraying it and I'm pretty sure it's what caused my headaches both days. So much dry spicey leather.

Few days ago wore Kilian's Prelude to Love (that's the citrus one right?) and it was a pleasant opening but I found it underwhelming overall and poor longevity. After 2-3 hours I sprayed over with Neroli Portofino and it was smooth sailing from then on.

Yesterday: Gucci Envy PH

Today: MFK Oud. After 5 hours, down to skin scent, need to re-apply.  Unfortunate that this is my favourite, because I will go broke at this rate.

I really need to try Puredistance M.

This evening: Vintage Giorgio for Men - beautiful stuff!

I am confident that you'd really enjoy Puredistance M.

I am wearing a fragrance called S-ex at this moment in time.

The first couple of times I tried Knize 10 I hated it and gave away the decant. Years later I was talked into trying it again and oddly enough it worked this time.

I can say that about a few scents, now that I think of it. (L'Instant, Egoiste)

SOTD: Chanel Allure Pour Homme. This is nice, but it's too sweet for me. Its like the way a good hand soap should smell (for me anyway). No hate.

Have you tried Edition Blanche?

Do NOT give it away like Thomas did! I've realized that I have disliked dozens of fragrances because I just didn't get them yet. Many things in life that are to be appreciated in the long-run are not easily approachable at first.

Luckily I only had a sample size of the Knize Ten so there is not much to give away. I appreciate the advice though.

B1OS - I have not tried Edition Blanche, but I will add it to my list of things to try. What made you think of that? Do you like it?
post #15641 of 21229
^^ Allure Homme Edition Blanche is completely different from the regular Allure Homme. It's definitely the best of the Allure series, IMO. The basic accord is simple, but extremely well executed. It's lemon and vetiver. But the lemon is a very creamy, sweet lemon, sort of like lemon cream pie. But it doesn't feel like a gourmand because the vetiver, along with a fairly prominent sandalwood note, really fleshes it out.

(This was my SOTD yesterday.)

^What he said.

SOTD: Czech & Speake - No. 88
post #15643 of 21229
Today: Giorgio for Men - a great warm and honeyed sandalwood scent for a rainy day.
post #15644 of 21229
Pre-shower: HdP 1969
SOTD: Afternoon of a Faun

I did the same thing with my first decant! Most "old fashioned" scents like Knize first struck me as 'perfumey,' for lack of a better word. My nose and tastes have evolved considerably over the years.
