I agree. Lonestar Memories, to me, is more petrol, dust and barbecue.

First post in here, been thinking that it's time to start using a cologne daily.
Any standard starter recommendations for people who haven't really used it at all before?

For context I'm a 20 year old full-time student who dresses...idk modern I guess, if that helps.
Really have no idea if I'd prefer something more floral, fruity or woody but maybe I can get a few suggestions each and then go downtown and see what type I prefer.

 

Thanks :)

A couple of modern, interesting brands to check out would be Commes des Garcons and Etat Libre d'Orange. You can find a variety of styles from each house - from pleasant/easy to strange/avante garde.

Today I wore a scent called Vol de Nuit by Guerlain.

I agree with Baron's recommendations. I'm a big fan of Etat Libre d'Orange, so I'm going to suggest some specific fragrances. The ones I'm recommending are somewhat unusual (so you won't smell like everyone else) but not too avant garde. Also, they should work for a wide variety of occasions (seasons, level of formality, etc.).

Jasmin et Cigarette
Like This Tilda Swinton
La Fin du Monde
Eloge du Traitre

Also, you might want to check out Aventus by Creed. It's pricier than the Etat Libre scents, but it's a "young" scent and a big compliment getter. It's a huge hit in the fragrance community, but it isn't so common that you'll run into a lot of other people who are wearing it.

Jil Sander Man today. Aromatic cedar, good projection, lasted about 11 hours. Big plus from me.

So I'll be off traveling for a while between some major cities in East Asia and will most likely want to pick up some good fragrance. 

Any ideas? Exclusive to hard to find stuff. Shops to visit etc. Also if anyone is interested in splitting I'll be decanting vials of 10-20 ml.

Terre d'Hermes is a good one.  It is excellent in the summer.

 

 

Today is Guerlain Habit Rouge.  1 spray is more than enough for the next 24-48 hours.  Powerful stuff.

 

In other news I finally broke down, joined basenotes, and got my first splits order in.  :uhoh:

Kindofyoung, based on the way you dress, which I see as monotone and clean modern lines more or less, I would suggest trying out the scent lines by clothing companies of a similar style. The first one that came to mind was also CdG, who have plenty to choose from. I think Byredo might also suit you nicely since they're an exercise in abstract minimalism. You might also find a winner in MMM's line there. I can picture you smelling like MMM Untitled (very sharp woody green floral), or CdG Black (sweet incense) or CDG Wonderwood (peppery burned wood), etc

And further down the list I'd say something like Dior or Chanel or Hermes's Private collections since again, they tend to be simple and elegant and a little more 'weird' than the mainstream lines. And lastly, if you can find it, Arquist could have something for you. And way down the list, just a possibility but something like L'Artisan or Diptyque which tend to do more ambient smells of places or natural scenes (respectively)

SOTD Fueguia 1833 - Biblioteca de Babel

post #23638 of 25708
Pre-shower: Guerlain Nuit d'Amour. I've never been a fan of this, mainly because I find the pink pepper to be too strong.
SOTD: Venetian Bergamot. One of my favorite of the PBs.
post #23639 of 25708
Cyber Garden today. Bergamot and vinyl. Eh? I've no idea what that means, all I know is that you can barely smell the stuff.

What fragrants are you using on long haul flights? Im thinking either Dior Homme Cologne, 2013 version or Geranium Pour Monsieur by Frederic Malle, maybe I'll pickup a sample of Chanel Antaeus in the air port that I can use.
