Scent/Fragrance of the Day thread - Page 379

Creed Windsor - the first hour isn't great until the rose dies down (and not to mention a Band Aid scent), and then it becomes a very pleasant bubble gum (like the powdered sugar when you open a Bazooka Joe) meets vintage British barbershop cologne.

Phew, lots of catching up to do...

Lacoste (original)
Not sure if it's too late... I've got The One (swap from a nice SF member), it's a very simple pleasant warm wood amber thing. I actually find myself wearing it quite often and enjoy it. D&G PH, I quite like this one. It's a good mix of notes and suits any age and occasion. Polo blue's a pretty solid classic. Bvlgari Aqua's also good.

Which one, the original? Or set sail south seas or something? I've been meaning to retest the original one (brown bottle) since it's an economy decent woody frag if I recall correctly. Will it stand up to Gucci PH, Tam Dao, Palisander, Santal Noble, etc...? who knows!

I think I remember there being something about nutmeg in there?

It's a good frag, a little light (EdC). I bought Guerlain's Pamplelune instead, though it's not realy the same at all. Has that same sharp grapefruit note but then sort of turns creamy (vanilla). Check out the Eau D'Orange vert too while you're there, at least that one comes in a concentree version.

Good solid frag. I can't complain about this one at all. Excellent recent release. As always, it's a good idea to try before you buy. It's not cheap, but a very fair price for what it is. I'd say don't bother with the parfum version, the EdT is good enough.

I've got some of that as well. It was $7 for 7 ounces and it smells pretty good indeed. Lots of cloves, but very light and transparent. It's still used by superstitious cultures to ward off bad spirits.

Not mine but I read the thread and responded. Split a 100ml bottle with a basenote member coz I love Tom Ford Oud Wood but I am not ready to shell out Tom Ford-like price and since this is a perfume oil then its more bang for my buck. The fragrance itself is excellent, 98% identical to Oud Wood and definitely longer lasting. Wearing L'instant de Guerlain EDT today

I guess it was the original Tommy Bahama. I found it very raspy and unpleasant after a short while, so I threw it back in the box. Maybe it's a chemstry thing for me.

And, yes! Nutmeg in the L'Occitane Vetyver. It's a far, far cry from the sprightly Guerlain version, but still a good scent, price notwithstanding.

....

today...before heading out to run I put on a little Kiehl's Original Musk. It was a gentle powder/flowery musk. I showered when I got back, and forgot to reapply - so I've got the mild aftereffects of the Kiehl's and that's it. Currently going through withdrawal symptoms and about to google Kiehl's to find the nearest store and wait at the door until they open.

No, not really. It's good, but this is more a matter of withdrawal symptoms (OMG, no cologne!) played up for lols.

It could be anything really but this is what came to mind, and it's locally available and reasonably-priced - AND I know what it smells like. The Marshall's blind-buy-bingo just doesn't seem to pan out for me, hardly at all.

I actually pictured you like that old Marshalls commercial, standing at the Kiehls door with your hands cupped over your face saying "open, open, open, open..." Marshalls sucks

I always feel weird when I don't wear cologne. Today I'm wearing Signoricci.

Marshalls sucks

Nah - too lazy to wake up early just to satisfy my rampant consumerism. Okay, I would for perfume, but that's it.

Agree: Marshall's sucks. True story: I was there a few months back and found a bottle of Tuscany I wanted ($7 - ZOMG) but when I tried it I thought...mneh. Just like Azzaro. Leave it. So I did. A week later I was overcome with Tuscany love and went back for the bottle - not there. bastards!
So I bought a bottle from Amazon the next week and fell in love, for a week. Now the bottle sits in a dark drawer at home (no box), unworn since that week. Not sure how that's Marshalls' fault, but they still suck.

Wore Pamplemousse Rose today. Nice fragrance, but as everyone as said, it is very fleeting.

Open up a jar or package of Nestle's Sweetened Lemon Iced Tea Mix. You'll immediately get the connection. I'm wearing YSL Pour Homme - what a great scent. Easily in my top 5 faves.

Today: a light sample of Kiehl's Original Musk. Quite good. May end up getting a bottle of this, but I'm not in much of a hurry.

It's better in cold weather, imo.

My mother's best friend has been wearing this one exclusively since it came out. She pulls it off only the way that a suave French lady can. It always makes me think of her.

Thinking of selling a 100ml bottle of Burberry London -- it's just too strong for me. Bought from fragrancenet.com last year, 99% full w/cap & box. $30 shipped . Any interest?
