Enjoyable though? I like the sound of it except for the comments people make about marshmallow sweetness. I've found most pronounced sweet notes a bit too cloying to be enjoyable.Maison Margiella By the fireplace.
It claims to be unisex but I find it crazy masculine.
I find it to be the perfect summer scent.All I've been really wearing lately is Helmut Lang Cuiron. It's a slightly powdery version of suede. A bit like the inside of a woman's purse. Goes with a lot of casualwear, feels OK with tailored clothing. Masculine, but not macho. Slightly androgynous. Not too heavy for summer. I don't know ... just easy.
What I mainly got was a ripping headache within 30 minutes. Don't know what the hype is all about. The Cosmair version of RL Safari is way better IMHO.Finally tried aventus and I get everything people have said about it. It’s pretty great but compared to everything else I wear it’s not that interesting? I get a little bit of pineapple at the beginning but that quickly becomes orange juice for me which I found odd. I might still spring for a bottle we’ll see
Wow, good for you. I'd love to make my own fragrances and learn more about the chemistry behind fragrances.Got to actually make my own fragrance while in Paris last week, was an amazing experience.
Won’t go too deep into it but made a slightly floral, musky fougere that could use some tweaks but I’ll work that out when I reorder.
Today I was also given a bottle of jazz club by Margiela. Actually quite happy with it, I’m usually weary of the brands who aren’t solely cologne companies but it’s a nice boozy, tobacco-y scent.
It was an awesome experience I’m glad I did it!Wow, good for you. I'd love to make my own fragrances and learn more about the chemistry behind fragrances.
I would disagree with your second statement. I think it's wrong to dismiss fragrances that don't come from fragrance-only houses. There is a shit load of excellent non-niche fragrances out there. You just have to smell a lot and see what satisfies your taste. Regarding Jazz Club, I find it off-putting, and that's coming from a huge tobacco fan. It's almost like the sting of bitter tobacco smoke in your mouth with the afterburn of hard liquor. Not bad, but poorly executed in my view.
