Very little comments on fragrances in the Aussie Thread. I know we are all naturally lovely smelling creatures in our lovely sunny part of the world.
Nevertheless, I tried out the Creed scents in DJ today. Bois du Portugal is nice, but I think that style has been done to death over and over. Tabarome is quite interesting. But Vetiver really smells like laundry detergent.
As a testament to DJs customer service, I was not approached by any SAs at all during my entire time at the counter.
A list of memorable scents to me:
Drakkar Noir (memories of 80s- shoulder pads, skinny ties, pink shirts)
Acqua di Gio Homme (I finished two big bottles of this. I have never finished any others.)
I have heard the Endymion by Penhaligon's is sensational. When I pass HB Sydney one day, I will sniff that out.
I do recommend the Opus 1870 very impressive tired it at HB the other day and it motivated me to get some samples from Menbiz, ordered them yesterday arrived today before 8am, wearing the BB its a very elegant scent. Not sure if its me, learning towards buying Opus 1870 if I can buy it at a reasonable price. Menbiz $169 same as HB for 100ml have looked at getting it direct from UK but they want 60 quid shipping, forget that.
They also sent a strip with Endymion (sealed in plastic) and to be honest not impressed there is something in the background that bring back bad memories of the middle 90's and working with waiters who would douse themselves in that whole Eternity, Issey Miyake, Tommy Hilfiger sameness colonge. (shudder)
A staple for me over the years has been Eauu Sauvage I did wear Tuscany for a few years and Grey Flannel (sigh memories of drop dead gorgeous Greek Egyptian girlfriend)
Do you happen to know where could one try Creed Irish Tweed in Sydney?
