Tried a sample of Tom Ford Italian Cypress, sort of like it, not sure if I really love it.

SOTD Roja Dove Danger Parfum 

post #23688 of 26119
Given that my wife's favorite scent, by far, that I have worn is Gucci pour homme (which is sadly discontinued and overpriced), can I get some recommendations on other scents to try? Doesn't necessarily have to be an imitation, just consider that a starting point. I'd like scents to wear in different situations. I'd especially like to find one or two lighter/cheaper "daily drivers" that won't be heavy enough to offend coworkers.
  • I'd like to pick up maybe $50 worth of samples.
  • L'Inc has recommended CdG 2 Man in the past.
  • I also own YSL Rive Gauche, Lolita Lempicka Au Masculin (which I don't wear because my wife hates licorice/anise), and L'Eau d'Issey pour homme from past experiments.
  • My wife also likes "soapy" scents (by which I think she means vetiver, but I'm not sure)

How does the new Helmut Lang Cuiron (2014 version) compare to the Cuiron from the 90's?


Anyone tried the new? I have the original...

To me, they are identical. I've heard people talk about a lesser longevity with the new one, but that is rarely the case with my detection.

Today was a very rainy, drizzly, and rainy again, Sunday, so I went with Salome and it didn't disappoint. Fantastic fragrance and very old-school in nature.

Anyone by chance know if Barney's includes fragrances in their end-of-season sales? Or is their Purple Card event the best time to buy?

As far as I know, fragrances are excluded, unless they're discontinuing something.

@L'Incandescent approved Styleforum favorite Vero Profumo Rubj today.  I like it.  :nodding:

SOTD is Roja Dove Fetish Parfum


I think Roja Dove get's a lot of flack for being exorbitantly expensive...but having worn many of them repeatedly I believe some of his EDP's are among the best in the market.

Today I'm wearing Comme des Garcons Blue Santal, which is an extremely radiant sandalwood. I don't know how they did this one, but every time I wear it people comment on what I'm wearing.

I am wearing Chanel No. 22 Les Exclusifs.

Gentlemen, can I get some suggestions for a new scent (or scents)? I've recently cleared out most of my fragrances because I was sick of them. I held onto Terre D'Hermes, Tom Ford for Men, Jo Malone Lime Basil & Mandarin, and Amber/Lavender. I really like Aesop's Marrakech (this will be one of my next purchases) and am leaning more towards a spicy/musky scent. However, I always love a nice, clean scent. I checked out the Santa Maria Novella offerings at Stag Provisions and really liked them. I'd prefer to stay under $100, but if it's great, I might reconsider.

Balenciaga Ho Hang. I've had this decant for a long time and don't wear this much. A long discontinued masculine, I often wonder if my decant was from a batch that wasn't well preserved as I find this to be very light, but the scent is nice so maybe that's just the way it is. There's some citrus and herbal notes, much more really - leather? woods? spices? It has the feel of many 70's scents in that it's very complex, but it's a lot more restrained that most in this style. I think I'm going to increase the dosage to see if I can get a better handle on the composition.

MFK APOM today (from a sample).
Makes me feel all warm and cozy.

Yesterday, Prada Amber PH EdT, from a 10+ year old bottle. Still good, surprisingly, after years of neglect and stay in tropical surroundings.

Nice thread, btw. Full of inspirations and made me realize that my scent game had been zero, literally. First remedy has been to order tons of samples and some splits (a business MO I had never heard about before) from M-C and on basenotes. Funky. biggrin.gif
