    I wonder what people think about comme des garçons parfums? Are they too much personal, unusable in the public, considering their strange (synthetic) ingredients?

    CDG are fine for public wearing. For instance, CDG2Man is easy-wearing (lemon candle-smoke), and Palisander is quite pleasant. Nothing wrong with synthetics: pretty well everything you see on the shelf these days has synthetics, and that is been the case since Guerlain Jicky (pre-1900)

    Now, if you were asking about Nasomatto, I would have a different opinion. Especially Duro.

    follow up...

    does anybody in here have a good recommendation for a non-irritating deodorant (only, not looking for anti-perspirant). my old spice is giving me rashes these days.

    at the stores they recommended anthony logicstics.

    Thanks


    For me, it depends on the old spice scent - green irritates. The blues ones - pacific something and arctic something don't irritate. They aren't always carried at my local shops.

    I am currently using the sandalwood deodorant from Trumpers. It works well, but is a little stronger than I'd like. No irritation with it.

    +1 on the sweating much less with deodorant than anti-p. And deodorant means no pitting of my shirts as well.

    There are a ton of CDG scents, and some of them are not appropriate for every occasion. Most of the mainline scents, CDG Man, number 2, Silver Words, Series 4 which is mostly two or three note synthetic blends, those are pretty inoffensive and are more versatile. There are other scents that are very powerful, very cloying, or just downright weird that I probably wouldn't wear to certain occasions. However I've never thought "I wouldn't wear this scent in public!" if I really liked it.

    Surprised not to see your Dior on there Rach. I figured it would be #1.

    I've always hated Rive Gauche with a passion. It smells like a retirement home to me. Just awful. Good list otherwise.

    Drizz - You've got to stop shopping at Sephora. [​IMG]

    For my part, I'll add L'Artisan Tea for Two, L'Artisan Passage de Enfer, Dior Homme, YSL Live Jazz, and Acqua di Parma Colonia.

    Anyone want to setup a little decant/swap network? I know Basenotes banned decants and the trading/selling boards have been pretty dead over there for a while now. What do you all think?


    Just picked up a bottle of Dior Homme a couple months ago. It is a traditional fragrance with a kick of modernity. Have to use a lot, but it's damn hot!

    I don't know much about fragrances, but did order these samples to test them out:

    -A*Men: Too strong, didn't like it.
    -Creed Tweed Irish: kinda like it, but wasn't very impressed. I dont know why it's so popular.
    -Terre D'Hermes: really short-lasting.
    -D&C PH: I like this the most and it seems to stay on me a lot longer than the other ones.

    Agreed. Odeur 53 was the weirdest one for me from their standard collection... sort of like rubbery buttercream. Very odd. The Synthetic series was odd, too... dry cleaning and such.

    Aside from that, though, most of the series are wearable... Incense and Red are lovely, the Cologne series (Vettiveru, Anbar, Citrico) are light and fresh, and as you mentioned Man and Man 2 are nice. The Hinoki one (I forget the actual series name or number), though expensive, is also very good.
