Fragrance Top 10 - Page 33

post #481 of 501
Crap, I forgot to tell you Ron that I tried out Creed Original Cologne. I was completely unimpressed.

Surprised that you didn't like Aqua Universalis Forte. I thought that was the standout from MKK's lineup.

I got over the original cologne. It's a little too feminine and definitely not worth the money. I like the AUF - but like I said... it's best as a candle.

I like Creed Original Cologne. It's an interesting modern take on the classic cologne. I think the pear and petitgrain notes are a lot of what I like. (Interestingly, I normally don't like either of those notes. But they're blended very well here.) As ChicagoRon mentioned it is a bit feminine, but that doesn't bother me. Also, I got my bottle on sale for $550, so I don't feel bad about the price at all. (Okay, the last sentence is completely false; Rambo sent me some.)

Also, to me APOM and Lumiere Noire are the standouts from the Francis Kurkdjian line.

whoops, wrong thread.

Anyway, what's your take on MFK Absolue Pour Le Soir? I've heard mad raves about it, and it sounds assertive enough to keep my attention.

Good, not great. Worth a sample, maybe a decant.

I just got two bottles based on recommendations in this thread; Eau de Lalique and Balmain de Balmain.

I really like the Balmain but the Lalique (although beautiful and very interesting) is a bit feminine/powdery for me at the moment. I'll probably give it another try when the weather warms up.

Other scents in my collection are:
Terre d'Hermes
Green Irish Tweed
Guerlain Vetiver
Carven Vetiver
Michael Kors (I liked this at first, it's been getting a bit cloying for me lately)
Burberry Weekend (my daughter loves this)
Leu d'Issey (ditto, and it never gets old for me)
Paco Rabanne por Homme
A generic barbershop Bay Rum

I have a few samples on the way of:
Bigarade Concentree
Angeliques Sous la Pluie
Millesime Imperial

I'm looking to expand my horizons a bit but haven't decided what direction I want to take.

In the meantime I have tested quite a lot of scents and the following are my favourites:

Acqua di Parma "Colonia"
Carthusia "Uomo"
Chanel "Pour Monsieur"
Divine "L'Homme Sage"
Lorenzo Villoresi "Acqua Di Colonia"
Parfums de Nicolai "New York"

I already own the Chanel and the Villoresi but will most likely add a few others of the list in the near future.

I am looking for some suggestions on what to wear to work. Need something mature confident and subtle.
Thanks.

You'll get better feedback if you post this in the Scent/Fragrance of the Day thread. That's where most of the fragrance discussion is located. And is there a maximum price you have in mind?

$120 for a 100ml bottle would be my max. Thanks

Encre noire by Lalique is nice vetiver, it's a little strong at first but woody and definetly masculine I've gotten it pretty cheap for $40-50 on eBay and I've gone through maybe 2 bottles already and still one of my favorite scents.

Acqua di Parma colonia Essenza is nice it's a little citrusy but clean and refreshing you can wear it pretty much anytime of day and pretty much year round. And lasts you good amount of time , nicely rounded fragrance.

I would recommend buying things online instead of the store, you can get them on sale more often online and also especially around this time during the holidays there's sales going on.

  • Armani Attitude (get the most compliments on this one, this is my go-to for all occasions)
  • Bleu de Chanel (more sophisticated/complex scent that I wear when I'm going out on the weekends and for fancier events)
  • Hugo Boss Natural Spray for Men, also called "Hugo" (summer scent)
